Circuit City Complaint - Gift Card Scam - Unknown Purchases
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- These jokers forced me into a gift card by not giving me my money back after I returned a purchase within the time frame they've posted in the store. This I disagreed with from the beginning. I paid cash, I want cash back was my argument. The management would not bent on their position. This was months before the announcement of the closure.
Periodically I would check the balance at a store I may happen to be near once the announcement had been made to ensure my money was still available on this gift card. The money was still there until the day I decided to make a purchase at my local store. 96% of my balance had been used at a store in Virginia Beach on South Independence Blvd. and when I called to verify these purchases, guest what, management told me they could do nothing for me because the store is closing. I filed a police report and still I get nothing from these people even after I showed them that I could not have made a purchase at their Virginia Beach store when I was at work in Augusta Georgia.
The bottom line is, I have no recourse or resources to fight these people anymore. I feel sorry for anyone who has been ripped off by these people. I hope nothing good happens to them for the remainder of their lives until they make it right for these and others.
