Complaint Review: Newport Vintage Books
Newport Vintage Books This is a fradulent company that strings you along with lies. The website looks believable, his promises are not. Internet
*Author of original report: Believe It or Not, there is Justice!
I was taken to a professional looking website that had not only the item I was seeking, but also many more dust jacket facsimile offerings from The Hardy Boys as well as dozens of more children book titles of which some I knew, many I didn't.
My e-mails, all of which I have saved, began on September 23, 2009 with my explanation of my want and Frank, the respondent, assured me he had what I wanted giving me a lengthy explanation about being backlogged, some customers are willing to wait, and his final sentence - "If you have any concerns about the turnaround time, we can refund your payment."
I had no concerns as I have ordered backlogged or 'out of stock' merchandise from many companies on the Internet and never was disappointed with the end result - I received my item(s) within 21 days. [As time would tell, that did not happen with Newport Vintage Books.] I pain in full with a credit card.
My next contact with Frank was in my e-mail dated December 08, 2009. Yes, two months went by before this contact because it was becoming a busy holiday season for me, starting with October 31, and I was giving the benefit of my doubt to Newport Vintage Books that they, too, were busy for the holidays. Of course, he never e-mailed me with an update or any other subject matter.
I inquired how he was and where I stood in his queue. He offered an explanation that he split the project into four parts..."It shouldn't be too much longer.
Frank replied on March 04, 20010 "Hello Dan, Please email me your mailing address so I can send it along. Regards, Frank."
As of today, April, 06 2010, I never received anything in the mail and have not heard from Frank. And the reason I am writing this report this same day is that when I e-mailed Newport Vintage Books this same day, I received an automatic reply from the System Administrator of my e-mail provider stating my message was undeliverable.
These are the true facts as they occurred. At this time I don't know if I am ethically or legally partly to blame as a paid customer to this business. However, I am quite sure Newport Vintage Books is absolutely ethically and legally bound to produce my merchandise (as described by Frank) or offer me a refund.
I hope all who may read this report will immediately end their business with Newport Vintage Books and file similar reports if they, too, have experienced his "Ripoff."
I am ready and able to speak to one and all: a lawyer, a consumer advocate, a newspaper reporter, a law-enforcement agency, a politician, etc. I am now more likely to contact them, so hopefully, our paths will cross and justice be done. I would like to see this business "put out of business" for non-compliance, malfeasance, on-line theft to name but a few violations.
