This thread is intented for anyone to post about Companies that have either screwed you over, or have sneaky business practises. I think its our duty to make these bastards known so others can learn from our mistakes. So if you've ran into a known scam or had a bad experience with a large company post the reason, and the outcome of your situation (if any).

So I ask, who has shit in your cornflakes latley? Eek!

lol I worked at blockbuster.

AMC Theatres. Every theatre I have been in (including the ones in downtown disney and in Las Vegas) have had too few cashiers at the concession stand. If I can't have my fat kid needs validated, then I might as well go to another theatre.

It's all about the mom and pops rental places with the curtained back room full of porn. Tongue

yeah, and because of Blockbuster there are less and less mom and pop rental places, and in turn less back-of-the-store curtained porn rooms. Thats why I made my own. Now I just need to find someone to wear the gimp suit. Paranoid

Yeah Netflix is pretty damn good. I receive movies very quickly and all at the same time. I tried walmarts online dvd rental before that and it took a couple days to get the movies and they usually came back 1 at a time. I'm definitely satisfied with Netflix.

If you would have changed and asked me 2 months ago, before I got this new postion and had a previous AT&T Wireless I could have looked to see if anything was available (free promos) or not, but now I can't make any changes to accounts now. Sowwwwwy Unhappy

Old thread, but this needs to be added:

SBHCorp.com fucked me, without lube.

December of 2007: Placed an order for an Alpine GPS (to dock in the deck in my car)

Called a few days later to check status because I never received email confirmation. Spoke to someone who told me the item was back-ordered. I requested to cancel and was told my order was canceled and would not be charged.

Few weeks later, I was charged for the item. I called and bitched and was given the run around for WEEKS! During this time I called my bank to reverse the charges. My bank was unable to do anything without a receipt (WTF? - where am I supposed to get a receipt from something I didn't order?) I get mad and they tell me I need to fax over the details, etc. I fax the stuff over, and call the next day. They didn't receive the fax. I sent it again. I call again a couple days later. Nothing received and was told that I exceeded the 90 day deadline for disputes. So a great big FUCK YOU goes to WaMu for that BS.

April 2008: Finally got ahold of the owner/person who would be able to issue refund after calling DAILY for 3 WEEKS. Was told they would send out a check and I should have it in a few days. Called a week later and they said it was in the mail.

January 2009: Still no refund. $564 has been stolen from me. FUCK YOU SBHCORP.com

Next time I'm in/near Brooklyn I will be fire-bombing the place.

Intekra, I usually never trust the reps on the phone, I call back in about an hour and speak to a different rep who confirms that the prev rep made the changes. 6 times out of 10 prev rep either did nothing or did not fully complete the transaction.

Me and Ice worked for call centers and this is pretty standard shit because most of these companies are either large corporations where nobody gives a fuck, or redneck trailer family businesses where the proverbial "nephew" is the webmaster, CIO, CEO, CTO and accountant all the the same time.

Also I would like to slap you for dealing with WaMu. Bank of America and WaMu are probably the most lowly companies with only Pfizer, Humana and Manulife topping them in shittiness.

I bought a laptop battery on ebay and after 2 weeks of emailing the guy about not receiving it (never responds to emails/ebay messages) and submitting a dispute I got nowhere. So I started looking for info and found some emails with this guy's username and first and last name on the same page. I ran WHOIS on domains but they had the privacy enabled. But domains were old before all this private WHOIS shit. I went to domaintools.com (not sure) and they had WHOIS "history" but only for paid members. Luckily they had a free trial.
So I dug up his business phone from 1999 WHOIS and called. Some chinese chick picked up and offered me to get a call back from "Mr. Cho" because he is busy. I said that shit is not going to fly and I need his cell. I said I won't tell him she gave it to me and she reluctantly gave it up.

I called him and and he said he was on a vacation (after "omfg how did you get this phone number") and will look into it "tomorrow". I said no motherfucker, look up the listing right now.
He had a laptop so he looked it up an said there was a mistake bla bla bla and he will ship it ASAP. A week later I got my battery.

When you call you can tell quite early into the conversation if there is progress or you are stuck in a circle. Most common shit they give you is "this system or person is not available now and we will take a note and do it later". And when you call later, something else is missing (receipts, proof of purchase etc).

First of all you gotta get the person who is answering that if they have no control over the situation (i.e. it's just a rep who can't access the billing system) to get the fuck out and transfer you up the chain. Never agree to callbacks. Second step is to tell the person in control that since they are at fault YOU will tell them what to do and not vice versa and you are not faxing them shit unless they have evidence to counter your claims.

Third step is to convince the person that they are at fault. I.e. they will swear to God they shipped it or cancelled it, but then you ask for tracking or confirmation number and... they have no evidence. Always write down order #'s so you have some kind of point of reference in their systems.

Exploit weaknesses such as reps who give out internal phone numbers, and then call the number from your cell while rep is still on the phone. In most cases number will be bogus or lead to a general directory so you can call bullshit right away, but if the number is valid, you can drive some billing rep bonkers to a point where they will be interested to help you just to get rid of you.

I basically corner the motherfuckers until they see that the only course of action is to bend over and do what I say.

So basically be short, be direct and subtly be a dick.

To that dumbass pedestrian who got pissed off when I didn't stop.

Suggestions for the future:

1) When you want to cross the street; here is a word of advice. USE A FUCKING CROSSWALK!

2) When you walk casually out into the street into traffic and you are not on a sidewalk you have 3 options: Option #1) Try to get across the road before the car runs you over. Option #2) Stop and wait for the car to pass and the traffic to clear before continuing to cross. Option #3) Get your ass ran over and pulverized into the pavement.

Some education for you on "Rules of the Road": It's not your fucking right of way if you are NOT on a sidewalk, so don't get pissed off when I don't stop, AND I WON'T! Especially, when you could have pulled your fat ass another 20 feet up the street and crossed on a side walk which I would have stopped for!

If you want/need to learn about the rules of the road, I will be happy to pick your dumb ass up a copy of the Drivers Handbook.

To that other moron sitting at a flashing left green light, waiting for oncoming traffic when its your right of way, and you should be entering the intersection and turning "while" that little fucking green arrow is still flashing, I will pick you up a Drivers Handbook as well! You not only entered and sat in the middle of intersection during a green flashing left (without turning), you also completed your turn on a Red Light, and could have easily caused an accident on both sides of the street, because your too fucking stupid to know its YOUR RIGHT OF WAY!

This is why I don't own a gun, and will remain anti-firearms. It keeps me from acting on thoughts in head and cleaning up stupid ass morons like YOU!
