Carfax Vehicle History Service Failure to respond to refund request Centerville, Virginia Internet
*Author of original report: Resolved
So I requested a refund, I haven't received a confirmation or any type of reponse to my email. So I dedcided to track down a phone number to call which was not too easy. I located them through the Secretary of State in Virginia.
I called and they do not have a consumer customer service, but plenty of sales lines. I was able to speak to someone who confirmed that the only way to contact Consumer Customer Service is by email and was told to submit my request again.
I have and still nothing, so I lodged a compliant with the BBB and from their information I was able to get another email address which I made my request for refund again and this time I got an animated response:

***Please do not respond to this message. This is an automated message acknowledgement.***
After this email I have contacted my local media asking if this company has been investigated. I should have done my research before using Carfax.
But this do not mean I am not pursuing my refund. $39.99 ran one report not satisfied.
