BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview

BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.

Complaint: this experience was so absolutely horrible that I had to share it to hopefully prevent this from happening to someone else. My husband has perfect credit and was turned into collections for a debt that doesn't even exist without so much as a phone call from this company. They "supposedly" sent one letter to us, but we never received one. When I asked her why she didn't try to call us she just became combative and defensive. The owner of this business turned my husband into collections for $594 for an I phone that we already paid a reduced fee of $200 for. She stated that she has to charge us the $594 because that is what **** charged her for us canceling our contract 2 weeks shy of the 6 months that we agreed to. Her sales staff also failed to mention that even when we cancelled the phone line that we would be charged a termination fee even if we had cancelled on or after the 6 month minimum. In reality, the sales person failed to communicate that to us. I complained to **** corporate, they waived the cancelation fee, and I am assuming that it caused a problem for her. Maybe she lost her commision on it...I don't really know. I tried to explain to her that her sales staff did not explain things properly to us. She proceeded to tell me that it didn't m***er because she has a signed contract and that I needed to listen better. I spoke to **** after I spoke to her , and **** told me that was not the way that it worked. She was not charged for the equipment or penalized in any way for me canceling my contract. They also said that I should not be getting charged for that. I confronted this person about her unethical sales tactics and unprofessional behavior, she proceeded to personally insult me and combat everything I was saying. So not only does she expect me to pay a total $794 for a $594 phone, but she was insulting me and and proceeded to tell me to make payment arrangements with the collection company as if I was degenerate menace to society before hanging up on me, on top of it! She heard absolutely nothing that I said and just proceeded to defend all of it...even her nasty behavior and ***itude. Speaking to her was so upsetting that it triggered an anxiety ***ack for me. This was hands down the WORST experience that I have ever had with a business and probably the most traumatic encounters that I have had with a business owner. It was absolutely terrible from start to finish. The really sad thing about this situation is that it has made me NEVER want to deal with a small business again. At least If I make a purchase with a corporation there will be standards that the company has to abide by.
Desired Settlement: I would like for her to apologize for the way she treated me and speak to me like I'm a human being rather than a lower life form. I would also appreciate if she withdrew the charge from the collection agency that she turned him into. It should not have gone to collections to begin with because she didn't even try to communicate that there was a debt prior to turning it into collections.
***** ***** ******** ***************** *** ******************** ***** **** *** *** **** ** ***** ** ******** *** *** ********* ******** ****** ** *** ********* *** ********
On 11/5/2013, Customer ******* ****** purchased a **** **** ****** ** at the discounted price of 99.99 + tax ($105.79). Signed Invoice ***ached.
