My name is Raquel C., Bluehippo's account # XXXX13 I opened my account on May 10th. I just recently put a stop to my direct deposit due to the fact that I was promised a PC with in 12 weeks. I was told that after building a small credit history with them, which I did, I would get this awsome PC.

After 5 very upsetting phone calls and 3 faxes I am yet to receive a shipping date. Every time I have called they have given me the same excuse " you need to fill out and fax us a verification form" I faxed them their verification form twice and still I never received a shipping date.

I am fed up and want my money back. I gave this company my direct withdraw account information and they keep taking my money and I am yet to receive not even a speaker from this PC. Somebody needs to do something to shut this company down! I told them that what they were doing is fraud and I want my money back. They told me that they are a non refundable credit blah blah blah and I will not be getting my money back.

This is and should be against the law. They are taking advantage of people who are trying to fix their credit, people who are trying to invest whatever little money they have left to fix their credit and get ahead in life and this company is taking their money sending them deeper into debt!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

And the Beat Goes On!

AUTHOR: Shaaron - (U.S.A.)

I worked for six months for Blue Hippo as a Customer Service rep. and was fired for having a pencil & paper. So afraid was Mr. Resin of anything being written down that could be passed on to the media. This was weeks after he fired the entire C/S dept except for two of us, whom he fired later. Nothing appears to have changed. At first, I chalked up the poor response, and slow deliveries to a start up business. But as I read these admissions, I realize that things have apparently gotten worse. When I was there a year ago, The Call Center Mgr, was a suspected cocaine addict and pathological liar. It was a stressful job constantly having to lie to customers about their delivery dates. We'd be told to tell them a specific date and then they'd call when it wouldn't come, very upset! There is no Audit department. And the Phrase "accelerated shipping" was something our C/S group made up to appease really angry customers. I guess they still use it. Although 12 weeks was the given delivery time line,; expect more like 6 mo's. My question is, why do Agencies such as BBB and The States Attorney's office allow this company to continue to operate if their practices are outside of the law. If you are still working there, find something esle, the job market is better. Mr. Resin is a very mentally ill man. His money is the only thing that allows him to get away with the way he yells and treats employees. He is a little man who walks too hard and gives away his Napoleanic Complex. As I was leaving from being fired, I smiled. I knew that the extremity of this action, firing me for having a paper and pencil, meant he was suffering some unusual stress, and I was really glad to see that happen. Why has'nt the Media or consumer groups singled out this company for investigation. It's mindboggling. He does it because he can!
