GuestHouseBoutique.com Complaint - Fake True Relgion Jeans SCAM

Review by markfbel on 2007-10-09
I purchased a pair of True Religion jeans from GuestHouseBoutique.com for $120. the jeans arrived, but they appeared to be fake and the inseam was 2 inches shorter than the size advertised on the site. it took 5 emails and 3 phone calls to get a return authorization number. every email you send to the company instructs you to use their online chat support. there is NO online chat support, i checked the site for days on end at all times of the day and it was NEVER active. they charged me a $20 restocking fee even though the product was probably fake and the wrong size.

If you paid $120. for a pair of jeans, you really have no right to complain regardless of your situation good or bad, fake or not.

You wasted $120. on a pair of jeans?? O.k, so you have money to throw away, why would your complaint hold any value?

Another thing, the jeans were probably not fake, but appeared fake because you spent $120. on a pair of jeans that really are nothing special.

It's just another label you are paying for.

Let's say you take the "Kate Spade" label off any real Kate Spade handbag, does the bag look like it's worth $300+?

I don't think so.

So people who are more fortunate than you can't complain about poor service and scams ThinLazyAmerican? That is ridiculous.

$120 for a pair of jeans???? OMG!

Brenda, if I could afford $120 for a pair of jeans, you wouldn't hear me complain about anything--unless it might be the exact carat size of the last diamond I bought.

I agree with *Brenda*. Holy smokes people since when is a $120 dollars considered big money? Heck, I've blown more than that on a bad meal. I guess that makes me rich. Whoopie!!!

At least you got a hundred bucks back, right ?

More fortunate than me Brenda? Perhaps you don't understand the value of money and decency of life.

$120. is ridiculous and can be spent on better things than a lousy pair of jeans.

I hardly think somone can be considered "more fortunate" if they must complain about losing $120.

That's shallow Brenda!

Agree with Stew--I say if you have the $120 to spend and you want to buy a pair of jeans--so what. We have also spent more than that for just dinner. What does buying good clothing have to do with decency of life? Brenda--just stick to the stores that are known to sell these jeans. That way you'll stay away from the frauds. Thanks for the post warning us to stay away from that web site--which was the really the point anyway.

No, it's really not shallow ThinLazyAmerican. If I make enough to pay all my bills, buy food, all essentials, anything I NEED and have extra saved up to get a nice purse or whatever, then I deserve that.

Men always act surprised to find out what we spend on a nice Coach bag but they're the FIRST one out there buying expensive electronics like a game system or the $50.00 a pop games.

The bottom line is that no one deserves to be scammed and spending more money than you might on a pair of jeans doesn't reduce their right to complain. Even if I had a million dollars I'd still complain if I got ripped off. You just sound jealous.

Dianec- I think you thought I wrote the post but I didn't. I always buy my stuff from reputable stores, never on-line. I like to see things in person before I buy them!

I don't think $120.00 is a lot for jeans, these days. I understand Brenda's point, especially about the electronic games. My husband loves his games, and thats fine, he deserves them whenever he wants. It's what I call his relaxation therapy. I love a good pocketbook, and Brenda, I was going to buy a Jimmy Choo, but he really has nothing that I cared for. Speaking of Coach, I have a Coach wallent, that I've had forever, cause its so well made, and will probably last me forever. Somethings are worth spending extra for, due to the high quality and how its made.

I myself, prefer, Levi's.

OP, thanks for the warning about the website.

Brenda & Skye, ThinLazyMoron gets his clothes from the goodwill dumpsters. If you have a job (unlike TLA) and are successful, Your reward for achieving that success is being able to do what you want with that money, without guilt, and without suggestions from the peanut stand.
