FLORISSANT, MISSOURI -- I purchased some clothing from Roamans that didn't look like the catalog.
It also didn't fit., so I used the free shipping return label and drove
to the UPS facility to mail it back.
The free shipping label does not include pick up from UPS. The next month
I got a bill for $21.00 for shipping of the merchandise. I did not pay it.
It was supposed to be free. I kept getting the same bill. I ignored it.
They put a $20 late fee onto it. I then got a notice it was turned over
to a collection agency. Today I had to pay another fee of $10 to them to
take it off my credit report, plus the late fee and the original shipping.
All in all I had to pay $51.00 to return an item I did not use.
So, here's the deal...If you want to be treated like this...keep shopping with Roamans. I never will again.
I ordered 5 items, received a confirmed email with correct advertised prices. Once shipped, all prices were different. Total charge was $16.00 more than order price with one item on back order. After trying to explain to 3 customer service, no help. I returned all items, then received a bill for $17.++ with a interest fee charged. Don't waste your time! Quality is so poor, once you wash item you might as well throw it away. Cheap clothes, with very poor customer service.
I had posted on a website called wishuponahero.com asking for a new swimsuit. A nice lady responded and ordered a swimsuit for me from Roamans. When the swimsuit arrived it was the wrong size. The correct size was ordered and listed on the invoice, but the item was incorrect. Roamans is insisting that I send back the swimsuit at which time they will refund the original method of payment and then recharge the credit card for the replacement suit. Since a stranger sent me this suit I obviously can not authorize this. They then offered an option to credit MY account. But that it'll take 4 weeks!
Considering this was a mistake by their company this is totally unacceptable. I have told them several times now through email correspondence that I do not have contact with the woman who purchased this swimsuit. I feel like I'm going around and around in circles with them. Each time it's a different person who answers the email, and several time just "form letters". I just need to return the swimsuit and get a replacement (since they no longer even have the size that was ordered) within a reasonable period of time. This was NOT my mistake or the mistake of the woman that ordered the swimsuit. The invoice proves that. So waiting more than 1-2 weeks is unreasonable.
I have also contacted the BB regarding this. I will never purchase from Roamans again.
PARSIPPANY, NEW JERSEY -- ROAMAN'S CATALOG does FALSE ADVERTISING!
I received a sale catalog, hopped right online and placed my order on 9/30/2008.
Then when 2 1/2 weeks went by without receiving the package, I followed up with them and was told the item was on "back order" and in the "Date Expected" section were three question marks ? ? ?
So I emailed them and asked them what ? ? ? meant in terms of a backorder timeline. I was then told that the item would be shipped out on 11/27/2008. So I contacted them again and said that this was a long while, but at least I'd have my shoes in time for the Holidays.
Well, I received one email day before yesterday on 11/3/2008 that stated that my item would be shipping out "any day now" and then just now another lovely Roaman's email popped into my inbox and stated that my order has been cancelled.
So ... all of the previous emails were to keep me browsing and buying.
Believe ME ... I will not purchase from Roamans ever again.
We are savvy shoppers and will not be treated unfairly by a company that clearly does not care one bit about customer service.
Prior to this fiasco, I ordered three separate pants suits. All three packages I received contained THE WRONG ITEMS. Wrong color, wrong style and wrong size!! When I called Customer Service, they were quite nonchalant about it ... because it happens ALL THE TIME.
Anyway, I wrote this so that I may save some of you some time and many hassles. BEWARE OF ROAMANS CATALOG ... THEY ARE THE WORST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.
Happy Holidays everyone!
