ALERT AGAINST EURO-CIG.COM

What follows is from another message board as follows http://signs-of-the-times.org/signs/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4159 

Be aware of those people since they are obvioulsy not exactly legitimate to my opinion.

+++++

Just wanted to report I got ripped off by these people.  I'll post the exchanges later.  But warning: do NOT deal with euro-cig.com or any of its affiliates or spin-offs.

Well, just so ya'll will have a good idea of how they handled the situation, here is the series of emails.

Background: I had placed one order and it arrived, though it took FOREVER.  I had complained about this, but they responded that it was a "mail service" problem, and not on their side.  So, when I was ready to place the second order I wrote as follows:

From:               Laura Knight-Jadczyk
To:                 claudia@euro-cig.com
Subject:            Euro-Cig.com future orders
Date sent:          Tue, 14 Mar 2006 12:04:32 +0100


Hi,

My order of 6 cartons of Mores finally arrived a couple of weeks ago.  I've
been so busy I forgot to report this at the time.

I noticed that the postmark on the package was February 9 and the order was
placed on January 22nd.  That is over two weeks delay from placing the order
to shipping.  I realize this might be because the brand is not in stock. 
However, I would like to place another order and, in fact, possibly have a
"standing order", or at least an awareness that I will place orders
regularly on a cyclical basis. 

Our neighbor, who recommended you to us, says that his orders always arrive
within two weeks of placing the order.  Is it possible to do this with my
orders, knowing the brand in advance, and ensuring that it is in stock?

I will go ahead and place the order now and ask you to please look for it
and let  me know the possible delays so that I can plan accordingly.

Thank you.

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

I placed the order for 10 cartons, buying for FIVE people.

Hello Claudia,

I placed the order on the 14th of Mar and it is now the 12th of April and it
still has not arrived. 

Can you look into this and see what the date of shipment was so that I have
an idea of ETA?

Thanks,

Hello Mrs./Miss Laura,

we have regularly shipped your parcels by France Post and you will receive
your remaining cartons. Sometime can happen a little delay depending from
our postal office and from your postal service. You are a good customer
for us and i will explain you more.

Can happen that electronic machines of postal office don't read in
automatic the address, then parcels remain in the post warehouse waiting
an employe verifing manually it and ship. Can happen, also, parcels arrive
in Amsterdam, from where all parcels are addressed to all european
Countries, but parcels remain there some days before to be worked. Please,
consider we ship from Netherland Antilles , French and Deutsche land, our
parcels arrive by air to Amsterdam where are shipped to European
Countries.

Our little isle is divided in two parts : france and deutsche
lands, we have a situation very particular but here our isle, located in
Caraibi, is a very nice place, only problem people don't work much where
is the sun during all the day.


Now, by us is low season and we have only two weekly flights to Europe,
against the three flights of high season. Our management is working hard
with French and Deutsche Post to have guaranteed and average delivery time
of three weeks. Our interest is that our parcels arrive to our Clients as
soon is possible, in this way the Client order again. Please, take note of
our average delivery time in ordering with us.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Have a nice day.
Feel free to contact us anytime. Assuring you the best service at all times!
Please don't delete the email history, and please provide your full name.
This way we can help you faster. Thank you.

Hi,
Could you please write in English since I don't speak French.

Since my order still has not been completed after 2 months, today I will be  requesting a chargeback from my bank.

Thanks
Laura Knight-Jadczyk

I waited awhile to see if that would get any action, and finally, in frustration, I gave up and went to the bank and the police as mentioned above.  The hassle I would have to go through to cancel my Visa card, wait for a replacement, etc... well, I just wanted my damn cigarettes or my money back! So, I wrote:

Re: My cigarette order of March 14, 2006 still not received.

I have just returned from the commisariat of police after visiting my bank.

I have not received my cigarettes, and have applied to my bankcard for a
refund.  I have just learned from my bank that your company is claiming that
I did not make an internet purchase, but that I bought the cigarettes
outside of France, from you directly.

I see quite clearly what kind of organization you are running: a scam. 

Now, here's what I propose: either I get my cigarettes immediately, or I
1.) pursue the filing of fraud charges with the commisariat of police. 

2.) At the same time I will be providing my bank with the email confirmation
of purchase. 

3.) I will write an article exposing your company as a scam and warning
people to not do business with you and will publish it on my websites here:

http://signs-of-the-times.org/signs/signs.php

here:

http://www.cassiopaea.org/

and here:

http://www.laura-knight-jadczyk.com/

I can assure you that you will lose more business than it will
cost you to make this customer satisfied.

Thanks for your time,

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

I received a truly CHEEKY response!

Hello Mrs. Knight-Jadczyk,
congratulations for your websites and for your visitors.
We have only 2.430.000 during 6 months and our affairs are growing up
every day and we don't accept you insult us as spam. This is a no correct
way to claim because we have regularly shipped you, your no. 10 cartons of
More Red 120.

About your Police we are not interested, we are legally resident in
British Virgin Island and no people can attach us.

However our interest is to see our clients satisfied and recurring, in
this way we are interested to resolve your matter and we will investigate
immediately with our shipping postal office; it will be necessary some
days to have their answer and we will be back to you as soon we receive
this answer; but please, don't speak about us as spam because we are
honest merchants and we are the first seller of cigarettes in your Country
and this is possible only because french clients trust in Euro-cig.com.

Hello Mrs. Knight-Jadczyk,
our warehouse inform us to have shipped no. 3 parcels for no. 4+4+2
cartons within April 21 and it's appearing incredible you have not
received no parcels.

Now we are receiving feed backs from our clients informing us they are
receiving our parcels with much delay, until 65 days and this happen
because we changed our courier, from French Post to Deutsche post.

However we will ship you again during today no. 4 cartons of More Red 120;
in receiving our parcels we will ship the remaining no. 6 cartons.

It's established as follows : if you receive  our parcels you will pay us
the parcels we are shipping again.

We hope you will appreciate our efforts to resolve this matter.

Have a nice day.

But make attention, we are the first seller in Europe and we can refer you

We are honest merchants and we are quiet with ourselves.
