Forever 21 Complaint - Beware E-Business Practices
The worse on-line buying process!!!!!
I ordered a $100 e-gift card for a gift early on Saturday morning as a gift for Sunday. No reason to expect that it wouldn't be a near-immediate transaction. 12 hours later I get an email telling me that I have to call my bank and get a verification number. Ugh? The bank is closed on the weekends so my Sunday gift is now late.
I called Forever 21 on Monday morning and am told that they already have the verification number, but I have to call the bank to get it again and then tell them so that they can compare it. Again, ugh? They also tell me that I can fax them a picture of my credit card and when received they would immediately send the e-gift card.
When I called back to check on it, I was told that it could be another 24 hours before it was sent. UGH? By this time I am way past irate and the second person I talked to took the time to contact the supervisor and she assured me that the order would be processed.
So the advice is -- find another company to buy from or at least stay away from their on-line services. I would hate to have you asking ugh? ugh? UGH?
