When you pay top price you expect it will at least work, right?
In this day and age paying for an advertised product seems a privilege, and with it you may or may not get service.
I have spent the last two weeks dealing with incompetence of one sort or another. First, I tried to order a pair of shoes online – a task that should have taken me 15 minutes at most. It took me THREE DAYS, and in the end I paid $113 for a $37-dollar pair of sneakers. [The duty and taxes were $52, alone!)
Then, I paid $40 US for a FTP program ($70 CDN) that won’t activate using the company’s own serial number.
Finally, ‘The Bank of More Oil’ screwed-me-up on my credit card – not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES.
Realizing that the expiry date (01/16) would happen while I was out of the country, I contacted the company to arrange for a renewal card toward the end of September 2015. Thereby I was assured one would be sent out within ten working days. Meanwhile, a week before I left in November, I arranged for credit card with another bank, and wrote Bank of More Oil off.
There was a method to my madness, because it also got rid of a lot of charges that I no longer wanted but couldn’t cancel because the companies made it so difficult (…without a private investigator to find the formula.
Well, come 01/16 I found that Bank of More Oil was allowing these very same charges through on (what I thought was) and expired card.
Turns out, in their logic 01/16 means 31/01/16, so I was hit with the very same charges – in some cases yearly – that I wanted to get rid of.
To make matters worse, they started to allow charges dated 02/16 through as well!
That’s when I blew my top, and now they have cut me off from communicating with them as well.
