Complaint Review: Cloud Toronto
Cloud Toronto (MDileep) Ordered Product, Never Arrived. Requested Refund, Never Arrived. Mississauga Ontario
October 3 2013
I have ordered 5 Video cards from Cloudtoronto on October 3 2013. The company had listed these video cards as in stock on their website despite no other company having the product in stock, I had contacted them about the item and they indicated that they had the product and it was available to ship to me. The products cost a total of $888.41 on VISA. I placed the order and waited. I purchased these for other consumers. The Representative's name is Dileep.
October 10 2013
Received an email stating that product was in transit and that I would receive it the next day.
October 16 2013
Product had not arrived, Followed up with merchant to see what was going on. Was told that product was not even available in the Canadian warehouses and had not even been shipped yet.
October 18 2013
Received an email saying it was shipped from the US warehouse. Was told that Dileep would give me a tracking number. Told I would receive the product on Monday 21 October 2013.
October 22 2013
Frustrated that no product was coming in at all and several broken promises. I cancelled my order and requested a refund. My Consumers have already left and purchased through competing channels.
October 29/30 2013
Have not seen refund. Dileep Replied and says he will look and get back ASAP.
November 3 2013
Still no Refund. My Patience is nearing its end by this point. Received a reply stating that the refund has been “initiated and done by their credit” (I don't even know what that means) and that he will reply by the next day.
In the middle of November, I contact my credit card company to see if any refund has been initiated. VISA has indicated to me that there has not been any refund. I am in talks to try to have VISA forcefully take back the money from Cloud Toronto.
December 2 2013
No Reply for a month, No refund, No nothing. I follow up, I make my frustration no secret to Dileep, I do not trust what he says anymore. Constant promises of both refunds and product deliveries have been broken. I warn him that I will follow up with anti-fraud institutions if I do not receive my refund. A reply is made from Dileep saying that I can call the Credit Card Company. As a refund was completed 4 weeks ago. I reply stating that it is not my job to chase people for my money and tell him that it is his job to follow through on my transaction. He replies telling me that it is not his job to do so and accounting has said that it is done. He says he will look into it and reply the next day.
December 5 2013
Another promise to reply is broken. I wait 3 days to email back. I remind Dileep of Section 26 the Ontario Consumer Protection act 2002. I have still not received my refund. He replies that he has nothing to gain from holding my money and that he will get it fixed.
December 7 2013
I reply that I am not accusing him of gaining from my payment but as a consumer who all that I can see is there is no money in my account and the lack of follow-up from Dileep. I explain that I’ve incurred extra expenses because of their failure to deliver, both figuratively and literally. It has cost me more to purchase my flight because I didn't have the funds available to me in November due to this $888.41 Fiasco. This flight has cost me more money as I wait for my money to come back and had to purchase it at the higher price. I have had flights to book and other expenses to take care of that have had to be deferred by now. I explain that follow-up is lacking from Cloud Toronto. I also quote from the Cloud Toronto website the promises it makes to consumers on why they should choose Cloud Toronto as their parts supplier. Through this whole fiasco, I believe that 11/20 of the promises claimed on the site fell short of expectations. I explain to him why.
