*Consumer Comment: how to resolve compusa issues
*Consumer Suggestion: How to deal with scammers like Comp USA
Once for a flat screen monitor, another for a digital camera, and the last time for a hard drive.
In every case, they had NONE of the sale items I was eager to give them money for in stock. They refuse to issue rain checks nor will they take down my phone number to call me "if" more stock arrives.
Strangely, before I go to the store (and before the store is open for business) I check their web sight to check their inventory and their sight always says that the items are "in stock" at the store!
I actually got peed-off enough in the case of the monitor that I made them sell me the display model...which was probably a bone-headed idea on my part since the thing will probably blow up in a month or two after having been manhandled by God-knows-how-many customers!
Another issue I have with CompUSA is that they assume every customer is a thief! I bought a camera, a memory stick, and a RAM stick and they made me pay for them seperately at each department. They wouldn't ("can't) let me take all of my stuff to the front check-out and pay for it at once.
I must be confused...have it backwards...or something! Here I am, desperately willing to give this business HUNDREDS of my dollars, and they make it so difficult and aggravating for me, that I can't!
100-1 odds that they go out of business within 5 years! I can't wait until I get their "Going Out of Business Sale" insert in the Sunday paper...it'll go straight into the recycling bin.
