Target Complaint - Target is a disreputable company that does NOT honor its receipts and makes up excuses
READING, PENNSYLVANIA -- I bought two "Call of Duty" computer games from Target. The games were misrepresented, on their boxes, as working on Windows 7 and said that they needed 2.3ghz or better to work. They, in fact, do NOT work on Windows 7 and although my computer has 3.0 ghz they did not work.
Two days after purchasing them I tried to return them, but Target refused. They made up some absurd story about copyright infringement, as if they really don't know that games made in the 21st century require the CD in order to be played. I don't want the games because they do not work on my computer, but Target will not give me a refund, even though my receipt says that I am entitled to one, because of this story about how returning games will somehow be harmful to their copyright.
The particular Target that I bought these from is located in Reading, Pennsylvania, along Perkiomen Avenue. However, I now believe this to be a problem in other Targets as well. I filed a complaint against these cheats through the Better Business Bureau, and a representative from Target (most likely at another branch) gave the same ridiculous story about copyright infringement as the local branch at Reading. The sad part is that the people at the Better Business Bureau actually believed it and are now complicit with Target in not honoring my receipt. They must employ people there who really no nothing about technology and are more than a little lacking in the honesty department.
Since the Better Business Bureau will not do its job and prevent Target from cheating consumers out of their hard-earned money, I believe it is now my duty to let as many people as possible know that Target is NOT a reputable company. Only by knowing this can other people take the steps needed to ensure that they do not become its next victims.
