The Dump Complaint - We don't have your item but we do have your money.
IRVING, TEXAS -- On November 14, 2009 I purchased a mattress, box springs and a king-sized based from “The Dump” in Irving Texas. The total for these items was 1740.66. This includes $59.00 for a delivery fee. They set the delivery date for today November 21, 2009 between 3 and 9 PM. Around 4 Pm I called them to find out when the delivery will happen. At that time I was informed that the mattress was not going to be delivered. The salesman had assured me that the item was in stock.
I drove immediately to the dump. I asked for the manager. I did not want to talk to the salesman again. I asked for my money back. Again I was directed to salesman for a different mattress. I informed the manager that I had a house fire and had been sleeping on a rented mattress and bed. I did not want to do business with this company anymore and I need my money to go to a different place. I was asked to leave the business. I walked around and asked some salespeople if this was normal business practice for “The Dump.”
Then they called the police on me. You got it. They have my money, no mattress, and they call the police on me. I am the one being held hostage. I am the one being robbed. So I leave. I go back in about an hour later and quietly walk to the customer service desk. I ask for a refund. After about twenty minutes I hear one of the salesmen say the police are coming. Can you believe it? I am standing there quietly waiting on my refund and they call the police again.
So I leave again and call in. It will take 7-10 days to get my money back (remember I returned my rented bed). They wanted to charge me for coming to pick up the box springs and base. It only took 2 hours on the phone to get rid that extra charge. Now they don’t want to refund my original delivery fee. Anything they can do to hold onto my money. I paid them cash. I didn't hold payment for 7-10 days and then short then my gas and stress.
