Well Amazon strikes again. Does this company vet any of their business that they select for their amazonlocal.com program.
I have made multiple attempts to utilitize the voucher that I purchased. And with no return phone calls, from the retailer I called the 7th circle of ***, Amazonlocal.com customer service line. To be told again they would need 3-5 days to investigate the situation (this being the 3rd such a phone call to Amazon relating to this issue). After dozens of transfers, I talked to Cheryl who to put it simply, unless Amazonlocal can verify that a company has closed, it is the consumers job to contact Amazon for a refund.
Which I did, but they don't notify the public that made the same purchase when they do indeed know that the vendor does not exist any longer. So they sold 3000+ vouchers at $50 each, for $150,000 in sales that they collect on from the consumer and the consumer gets nothing unless they call and complain a minimum of 3 times.
So if they cannot verify that a company closed they don't contact the consumers to let them know that they cannot use the vouchers, they do not issue a full credit to anyone who complained. Its fraud pure and simply.
Monetary Loss: $50.
