Additional Notes

Complaint: Placed my order on 11/12/2015 for small item which showed in stock and ready to ship. Received the wrong part a week later, contacted the company who said they would ship out the new parts were coming from CA to WI and then would ship to me in **. I was told it would take about a week. On 11/25/2015 after not receiving the parts I contacted this company again. Again...I was told the parts were coming from CA to WI and then shipped to me in **. I was also told that the Mfg. in CA would not ship directly to me at this point. Today, 12/16/2015 Again, I contacted this company and at first received the receptionist who listened to my problem and then transferred me to a person who listened to my problem who then transferred me to a general voice mailbox. Very frustrated!

Desired Settlement: Just ship the correct part to me ASAP! as you advertised!

Business Response: The customer is correct that they received an incorrect shipment. Our vendor incorrectly packed the product at its facility overseas. We shipped it to our customer assuming that the package contained the correct part. Now it appears that the vendor has been waiting for more to come into their stock. I see in our system that on 12/21/15 the vendor said they would be shipping out a replacement to us. As soon as we receive it in our warehouse we will ship it to the customer.

Consumer Response: [A default letter is provided here which indicates your acceptance of the business's response.  If you wish, you may update it before sending it.]

Better Business Bureau:
