This was the last email until yesterday

I received on today

12TH email dated 3-17-2006
That it is managament policy not to refund after 6 months from date of purchase. That they checked with the warehouse and none was returned so SHE ASSUMES they were stolen in shipment and again my problem not theirs.

signed by Amber Collins

Each reply email I received was from me asking each time for a REFUND ,,, All of these emails were the replies I received. EXCUSE after EXCUSEYou do not have to have a college degree to realize they were NOT SHIPPED that this company knew they were taking the money for these with no intent to ship.

I have been purchasing from another company and they have never had a problem with shipment. They even CALLED me to see if they had arrived and if they were satisfactory.

I could not get CIG4U to even return an email without it being a PRETYPED email that they use for everyone.
Get a little orginial if you plan on trying to lie to someone learn to tell the right ones with the right person

Yes I did agree on the website. But I agree to the terms you stipulated which included you actually shipping the cigarettes, which anyone who reads any of the other claims against CIG4U can see that it WAS NOT DONE.

They lied email after to email just until they could say OH you signed the agreement..I held up my end of the agreement they did not they LIED

As you can see from the emails they bounced back and fourth from excuse to excuse never staying consistent
Never supplying me with the SUPERVISOR they stated they would And supplying me with a supervisor is NOT bouncing excuses back and fourth

If you chose to buy (haha) or should I say throw your money away. Make it simple on yourself walk to your toilet and FLUSH the money away. Is the same affect as getting cheated by CIG4U

I asked repeatedly for my refund BEFORE 6 months had passed. they just strung it along until they could implement their policy I agreed to. And if they are not deceiving people they you are still a piss poor company as NONE of your shippments never arrive. I am sure there are more out there that got the shaft.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds


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

I used to work for the reported company about a year ago, and I admit there was lots of problems with U.S. customs. To be honest, the main issue was that our manager at the time was useless, and didn't care.

I was not happy in this job because of his attitude towards the customers, but of course all the empolyee's had to follow his rules, otherwise we would be out of a job, regardless of whether or not we agreed with them.

Since I left a year ago, I have been informed by some old collegues that I remained friendly with, that they since have no problems with customs, and a new manager which apparently is more interested in the customer's well being.
