Okay, there is a site called www.ripoffreport.com. We have had a problem
with some minor warranty issues from a couple of furniture stores (one is
Rhodes Furniture, they're out of business so I don't mind naming them). Our
beef is that both stores are very slow in responding to warranty claims.
Instead of posting their names on rip-off report, is there another web based
avenue to post a complaint?
Personally, I've found the BBB to be a waste of time.
Regarding Rhodes Furniture, we bought a set of leather furniture from them.
I guess the salesman liked us and more or less gave us the extended warranty
for the furniture. Even though they are out of business, the warranty was
(supposedly) then and is now handled by a 3rd party.
And you expect someplace on the web to be better for getting
satisfaction from a local business? If you have a legitimate claim,
you can take them to small claims court, which is likely to get their
attention. And collecting a judgement from a local furniture store
that is still in business should be easy.
I find it interesting how many people here immediately brush off
the BBB as a useless organization. For a sleezey operation, that
can be true; but for many, it does in fact matter.
More than that, by submitting something to the BBB you also
create a record that would warn off others from using that
opertaion. A "good" rating from the BBB is nowhere as meaningful
as a "bad" rating, I agree, but it does eliminate some bad ones
HP for instance, cares a LOT. They
sorry bout that:
They fell all over themselves to soothe my feathers and made me a
very happy customer who felt he'd gotting into a great win - win
A broad brush can spread TOO wide! Try to see the bigger
Quit wasting your time, Monday pay your 35-50$ small claim court filing
fee at your local court house and let a judge decide. All you need is
the company name, address, and someones name that works there. Odds are
you will have it fixed in 30 days. Forget writing, forget the bbb. Only
a court can enforce a judgement.
Read the fine print before suing. Most big companies have binding
arbitration clauses in their contracts and judges routinely enforce them
because the crooks in Washington passed a law that pretty much forces states
to enforce binding arbitration clauses in consumer contracts even if they
are in invisible fine print. So if you ignore the clause, the other side
can hire a big shot expensive attorney to win a dismissal and the judge can
may you pay the attorney fees.

I don't know the law in all states, but I think that need not be the
same name as that listed in the phone book or on the sign.
I think there is supposed to be a business license posted with the
name and address, a new license each year, although if nothing has
changed and they only have an old one posted that would not upset me.
What happens if you sue under the wrong name (a DBA name, doing
business as) and right address may vary from state to state.
"at the 3 stuporvisor now" makes no fucking sense. You need to look all over
your furniture, especially underneath. There should be a tag with the
manufacturer's name, and probably the city where they're located. Then you
need to pick up the phone and call them. If you don't know how to get the
area code for a city you're not familiar with, find someone over the age of
40 and ask them.
Also, you don't need to type "he**" instead of "hell". It's just a fucking
