This seem to be Automated response you get through KingOfSwords system everytime you send them an email. Well my story goes as follow:
I purchased miniature Roman helmets on November 28, 2007 for holiday gift. I contacted my bank which indicated payment was made out on November 30, 2007 to KingOfSwords, and the email response from KingOfSwords was that Order Accepted. I pursued this further because they didn't give me an order status.
Since most ethical companies do not hit your credit card until product SHIPS, I assumed that I would receive a shipping notification in the near future. This did not happen. I eventually received a notice that they had RECEIVED my order. I went to their website and utilized the form to request the status of my order, but to no avail also. After some digging, I found that the site is part of a company using the name milleniumempire.com.
That's the response I've gotten for the several attempts I've made through email to KingOfSwords, I've contacted them through their 800' number (1-866-691-0305) however no human at the end of that company number only a automated answer, indicating to leave your order number and a phone number in which they can reach you back within a 24hr period. So far I have not heard anything from them. I also have to add that when I placed the order I paid the bond fee per their request in order to secure purchase. To be on the safe side I pay that fee. Interesting thing I have to say is that they are a member of BuySafe.com, with the symbol emblem on their website, which anyone who shop online would trust. The problem I have is their lack of responsive customer service, the lack for which will hinder the company image in the end. Consumer inquiries on a timely matter is key on the worldwide web when shopping, especially for this holiday.
I have filed a dispute with buysafe.com as well as with the third party seller, email@example.com. Buysafe.com indicated that my products were coming from this seller. I have yet to receive an answer from firstname.lastname@example.org.
