VENUE.COM Very bad experience, poor customer service, predatory pricing, items never shipped nor received Los Angeles, California
time when inquiring about the status of the laptop, I am told that it's either been back-ordered (3 times now), it was already shipped on the day I call to complain conveniently (2 times), they haven't gotten any status updates on my order (2 times) and on one occasion I was put on hold just to be hung up on. Keep in mind also when placing my initial order, at no time did the Venue.com website indicate that the item was out of stock. The exact laptop is still listed as of today (10/28/2009) and as one would assume available. I am at the end of my rope here and feel that I have been more than patient. Generally I am very easy going, level headed, giving person but not one to be taken advantage of, but I am feeling like a fool right now. All I want is the goods/products I've paid for. It's simply bad business to keep paying customers in limbo like this. I am still paying for this laptop even though I haven't yet received it, too afraid that my credit will be negatively affected if I stop paying. After writing this I am filing a complaint with the BBB.
Update 11/11/2009- After calling once again to check on my order I was greeted with a message stating that all orders have been canceled and all accounts were closed. So I am assuming Venue has now gone out of business finally. If you were waiting for an order, never received it or have any other problems with your Venue account please contact World Financial Capital Bank (the bank issuing credit)
or write them with a dispute:
