Factory Advantage LLC is a fraudulent seller. Ordered a generator and they cancelled the next day without explanation.
It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this brilliant blog!
I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
I look forward to new updates and will talk about this blog with my
Facebook group. Talk soon!
I am so glad this website exists. Rakuten is a shameful fraud and should be put out of business. I just spoke to a woman who posed as three different customer service reps/supervisor:
Luckily, I am from the press and a member of the National Press Club and so they will be hearing about my experience.
Weeks after they canceled my order with no explanation they’ve now emailed me saying they’re trying to expedite a fulfillment of the order!! This is after Jeremy (no last name)from extension 2472) called me days ago and apologized for my bad experience and acknowledges my request to cancel the order. These people are a friggin mess!!
I ordered two toilets advertised on Rakuten’s website on May 28, 2014. What did I receive? Two toilet bowls ONLY – useless garbage. Rakuten’s customer service department tried referring me to their vendor – who was selling for another vendor of a vendor or whatever. This is a joke and the joke is on you.
Hello, Mr. Luthi – the ad that was posted on YOUR site was blatantly fraudulent. It is NOT my responsibility to chase down vendors that you represent. I saw the ad on YOUR website and purchased the toilets from YOU. I expect a return shipment label AND a full refund. I’ve already escalated my claim on Paypal and plan on writing the US Attorney General’s office, Commerce Department, Better Business Bureau, and contacting my attorney. I’ve given your representatives 24 hours from now to comply.
Your company just ripped off the wrong person. I’d suggest you get busy and rectify this matter.
