Telescopes.Com Informative - I Was Scammed By Telescopes.Com. Bad Business.

Review by alejledesma on 2007-07-09
CAPE CORAL, FLORIDA -- I placed an order from TELESCOPES.COM on June 23rd 2007 for a telescope they listed in their website as "in stock". Right after I made the purchase, they sent me an e-mail showing order status as "processed". Twenty days later I was still waiting for order to be delivered. I call customer rep., they told me due to "warehouse moving" they couldn't ship the item yet.

I called for second time to inform them I no longer wanted the item, so I needed a refund. They said they don't charge credit cards unless order is shipped. Well they DID charged me $999, right after I made the purchase. Well, now I'm trying to get my money back. A Total nightmare. Do yourself a favor, don't buy from this store, you'll regret it.

Don't wait on them to refund your money, challenge the charges with your credit card company yourself. The window is small, you don't want to wait too long based on them telling you they are working on a refund.
