CEO Corie Barry / Steve Waligoski BEWARE of BEST BUY ! Steve Waligoski Senior Executive & This Is The Description after Steve Waligoski's Revision, Please LOOK >>> Specialist... What's Included AC power cord Brother HL-L2370DW Wireless Black-and-White Printer DR-730 drum Installation CD-ROM Quick setup guide Starter toner cartridge (approx. 700 pages)

In Conclusion, I Submitted a BBB Complaint On This Matter and Shortly Afterward Was Contacted By Steve Waligoski A Senior Specialist at Best Buy Corporate, He Said He Was Sorry For My Inconvienance and would send me the 12,000 page Drum/cartridge That The Description Stated, and Revise The Description On The Printer and Remove The 12,000 page Discrepancy, He Left Me His Number And Said Call Him If There Was Any Problem ! (I didnt realize he was setting me up) !

I Took Him At His Word and Told Him I Did'nt expect The Call or That Best Buy Would Be This Honorable Especially After Dealing With The Store Manager LEES RAYES at My Local Best Buy ! Feeling Confident That The Matter Was resolved To My Satisfaction, I Closed The BBB Complaint. But This Was A BIG MISTAKE !

I Soon Received The New Drum , However The 12,000 page Toner WAS NOT INCLUDED ! (This was Of My Initial Concern In the first place when I asked the Chat associate If The Printer Contained This 12,000 page Cartridge or not ?) So I Called and Left A Message For Steve As He Told Me To Do If I Had A Problem ! And Told Him That I Received The Drum But NO TONER ?

The Next Day He Called Me Back, He told Me That It Does Not Include The 12,000 Page Toner That Was In The Initial Description ! So I Referd Him Back To The Initial Inquiry i Made In The Very Beginning, Talking To The Best Buy Chat Rep, Online... That This Was Specifically About That 12,000 Page Toner The Whole Time! 

Steve Said That The 12,000 Page Toner Is Not Included Once More, I Said Its In The Online Description ! He Said NO ITS NOT ! I Told Him Ill Go Online and take A Pic and Send It Right Now ! (By This Time I Was On Best Buys Website At The Printer I Ordered And Looking At The Description ) LOL IT WAS GONE !

He Revised The Whats Included On The Printer, and REMOVED The 12,000 Refrence From The Description !!! Still On The Phone With Steve I Said ITS GONE ! You Removed It ! He Said It Does not say its included under The Description ! Of Course Not You Edited it Out !

Does This Sound Like Ethical Business Behavior ? But What Steve Did not Realize Is That I Took A Picture Of the Description Prior to Him Editing It Out that Showed The Original 12,000 included Drum in the Original Description For Trish Walker, Best Buys Complaint Dept... This Whole Process Of My Experience With Best Buy Can Be Validated By Dates Of The Material I Have Included Above...

In Summation, I Was Trying To Be As Honorable As Possible Initally Contacting Best Buys Chat Before Purchasing This Laser Printer, I Even Told the Chat Rep That This May Be A Typo ( Not Wanting to Waste My Time To Buy It and Have Issues Returning Etc If It Did Not Come With Both Cartridges ) He Guarenteed Me I Would Receive It As It is Stated In The Online Description after He Looked Up The description Himself, and even Posted The Description To The Chat session !

as you can see as part of The Transcript Of Our Conversation Here, ! Upon Initially Ordering This Printer Online, I Was Confident That Best Buy Would Honor The Item Description Just as Their Own Employee was ! But I Now Feel I was First Baited and Afterward Manipulated By Their Senior specialist Steve Waigoskis at There Corporate Office !

This Falls Upon Their Ethical Credibility and Disregard For their Consumers, Reducing Their Consumers Beliefs Towards Best Buy as Dishonorable, Disreputable, Impracticle , and Thereby Substandard In The Retail Market ! This Type Of Disconcern For Their Patrons Is Inappropriate To say The Least, I Can Actually Call Them Thieves and Liars With The Proof To Substantiate My Claims ! Very Upset !

So I Contacted The Chat Dept. to Verify This, I Told Your Chat Rep My Situation What The Description Said and It Could Be A Typo, So Before I Order I Want To Be Sure That I Would Receive Both Cartridges, He Assured Me That Best Buy Was Honorable as I Was Trying To Be and That If I Didn't Receive Both Cartridges in The Box Best Buy Would Definatly Send Me One at No Charge !

I Received the printer and Only 1 Cartridge In The Box, I Contacted The Chat Again and They Said To Take it up with my Local Best Buy, So I Contacted Our Local Best Buy Here In Apple Valley Calif and Talked To The Store MGR Lees Rayes Who Was Rude Disrespectful and Is A Liar ! He Said He Had The Item Description right in front of him and it said it only comes with one 700 page cartridge ! I Told Him Thats Not what it states in the description and He said it did !

I Included Above what it states in the description PLEASE READ IT ! It Does Not State it to Include Only One Cartridge Anywhere ! Furthermore why would it state a 12,000 page at all for that matter if not included , under whats included ! So This Has Become A Hugh Waste Of My Time And Situation That Has Set A Rise In My Blood Pressure ! Now I'm UPSET !

Please Don't Blame Your First Chat Rep For Assuring Me That Best Buy Would Honor The Second Cartridge if Not Included, He was just Convinced In His Company's Responsible Ethical Standards, He Obviously has not met My Local Store MGR LEES, I Was Honorable And Before Purchasing Questioned The 700 page and 12,000 page cartridges that it states are included !

So Now I Must Go Buy Another Cartridge, So I Can Finish My Job as well as dealing With This BS !!! Im Very Disappointed In Best Buy At This Point, And now must consider Doing Business With You in the future ! here is a copy of the first transcript >>> Please Let Me Know Your Intentions Regarding This Matter !
