Amazon.com Complaint - "Switch & Bait" An Old Tactic
1200 12TH AVE SOUTH/SUITE 1200, WASHINGTON -- On learning that HP was having a great deal of problems with their TouchPad market and that there would be a dramatic drop in price, I reached out to my long standing online vendor Amazon and purchased 2 for me and my wife. I was told I would receive them this week. They had my credit card number and I had an Amazon confirmation Number. Instead of delivery I got an eMail yesterday saying they were out of stock and I should try another vendor onSale and pay almost twice the price, they delayed reaching me and this delay stopped me from looking anymore.
I'm not a lawyer, but they did teach us in Public School the concept of "Bait & Switch " I think that is what's going on here and allot of people are being disrespected by a big company.
This is how they politely exscused their abuse:
We're writing to inform you that your order 105-3518844-3839438 from onSale has been canceled because the item(s) you purchased were out of stock. Please return and place your order again at a later time.
