Additional Notes

Complaint: ************** broke my designer eyeglass frames. I sent them these frames to replace the prescription lenses. These frames were very expensive around $575 when purchased six years ago. ************** wanted a receipt of purchase which I don't have. They then, refused to replace the designer brand, ***** *****, with similar frames by this maker. They know how expensive this maker is and refuse to make it right. They keep offering me cheap frames in their stock and expect me to pay 50% of cost. They claim no responsibility as this is the risk when I gave it to them.

Desired Settlement: Refund of the $575 or replacement with similar frames by ***** ******

Business Response: Brand new ***** ***** frames were purchased for this customer who sent older frames that were unsound.  These frames were provided to the customer at no cost in spite of the stated policy of either providing any frame on our site at 50% or canceling the order.  The customer received this order on March 3rd

Complaint: seller refuse to answer phone. wait on hold, nobody ever pick up. ordered 3 pairs of frames, seller won't ship. seller keeping money why are they allowed to keep my money if they have no intention of mailing out items

Desired Settlement: let me know when you guys hire somebody to answer the phones. when are you giving me back the $300 you stole from me since you guys don't sell glasses or have real company. thanks for wasting my time. grow up and don't mess around with people. i am so upset that i used your company. you proved me right, you guys are scam artists like everybody else. thanks for teaching me lesson. you got me good. it's ok, karma will come back to get you.

Business Response: Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/04/08) */ Spoke with customer and emailed updates on numerous occasions. There was a slight delay with one of his 3 frames to which he was alerted. THe one day he had issue reach us on phones was during a phone system switch over. He was offered free Saturday delivery and a discount on his order for the short delay. His order shipped on Friday and is due to be delivered today. Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2013/04/09) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT ACCEPT the response from the business.) I was never issued any discount on my order....what are you talking about? who offered me said discount, do you have proof of that in any email/phone call? i called to obtain delivery times before placing order. they tell you earlier delivery time to misled you. frames don't come in until many days after. why mislead customer and give them false information. they make it extremely difficult to tell which frames are in stock or not on their site. so all i can do is call them to see if frames are in stock or not. i got the frames yesterday and not real impressed. the flexon frames are clearly used, very dirty, and don't open correctly. this whole experience has not been a good one. waited extra long for sub par product and then company calls me rude for expecting things that their own employees told me prior to placing order. what a wonderful thing, smh
