The End of the Saga

Well, despite being total moronic assholes until the bitter end, I finally received my money a few days ago... plus interest.

So, if you find yourself in the same boat the rest of us did, you can have some peace of mind that eventually you will get your money back. Complaining about it won't do any good. Begging for it won't help. Going to the Better Business Bureau or other online entity is pointless. Threatening them with pipe bombs won't get your money back either.

I took the begging, comedic, and public approach. "TheJames" took the crazy, in your face, "I'm going to kill you and piss on your shallow grave" approach. We both still waited out out 90 days, for the funds to be returned.

While letting it go for the first 90 days makes sense, both "TheJames" and I both had last minute bullshit bailout attempts. They told him that there was now a claim against him and they were holding the money longer, and they told me that the money was on it's way... not once, not twice, not three times, but FOUR times before they ever bothered to send it.

So... in the end... now that I finally got my $2000+ dollars back.... I know your dying to know what I ended up spending the money on, right? Well, right before I was paid, customs put a $2300.00 shipment worth of phones I ordered on hold. I had to reorder the entire shipment, so the Amazon money is now sitting in Wilmington, Ohio while I deal with Customs and DHL's PISS POOR Customer Service.

For the most part, I am done posting on this blog, but it will be here as a reminder, and help for anyone who wants to read it. If you want to continue to follow what part of my business life I make time to share, you can follow the links of this page, to view my other blogs.

If you are reading this because Amazon Stole Your Money too, then you should speak out, complain, file a report with the BBB,email theconsumerist.com, open your own website, and let your story be heard. Don't let these Fuckers get away with it.

Not sure if you remember me but I posted a comment back awhile. Just wanted to update you on my issue. I did finally get my money but, here's the kicker, about a week after the 90 days same as you. Well, that alone is a clear violation of their contract. So, now, I have legal ground to stand on. I haven't just taken the money and said I'm done with it. It still just pisses me off so much. So, I'm still looking into a lawsuit based on PRINCIPAL. This just pisses me off that much. What do you think? Oh yeah, a little anecdote for ya: A couple of days ago I receives an email about a customer who didn't get a refund for something they sent back. As I have my money and immediately withdrew it from the bank, I told them to deal with Amazon and fuck off. ha..

You told your customer to deal with Amazon and Fuck Off huh? I took a different approach. I told my customer to send it back to China, then to send me copies of the Postal Receipt, Postal Form, and Customs Forms. Since that will cost him $25.00, and a boat load of time, I do not expect to hear from him again.

"Just leave it over there on the end table... wait... what is that ticking sound?"

"And in national news, the Amazon.com headquarters in Seattle was obliterated into dust by a controlled nuclear explosion this afternoon... Authorities have begun a complete investigation but thus far have not been able to establish a link between the attack and any known terrorist organizations... The New York Times office is reporting receipt of an anonymous email from party or parties with the cryptic name "The 90 Day Retribution Alliance" claiming responsibility for the bomb... details at 11..."
