Circuit City can kiss my ass!

The following e-mails outline the stupidity of Circuit City and their lack of interest in keeping long-term customers who have spent 10's of thousands of dollars in their fucking stores.

I state now, that I will no longer give Circuit City, or any company connected with them, any business whatsoever. If you know of a company that is associated with Circuit City, in any way, please let me know and I'll add them to this page of people who officially suck ass. Thanks.

We welcome customer feedback to ensure that your questions and concerns are answered. Unfortunately, your warranty would only cover mechanical defects due to normal wear and tear on your unit. Any parts that are loosened or have broken would be considered accidental/cosmetic damage. I do apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Again, I thank you for contacting our website. Sincerely, Riquita Knox Customer Support Coordinator

This is causing the doors to fall off and *is* due to normal wear and tear... I have no idea why the nut is stripped.

There may have been some mis-communication at the time of sale. Unfortunately, our ESP does not cover all issue that may arise with your unit. It will cover mechanical defects due to normal wear and tear, but it does not cover cosmetic damage or accidental damage. The issue that you have with your refrigerator is cosmetic/accidental damage, and we will not be able to cover this. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for visiting our website.

I have reported this to 7 On your Side, a San Francisco news station that sticks up for consumers, and you can try and explain to them how doors FALLING OFF is cosmetic. In addition, I will be reporting this to Channel 4 News, since they also have a consumer fight-back segment, and the Better Business Bureau first thing tomorrow morning. Bill


Footnote: since those bastards at Circuit City would not service the refrigerator, and bring it back to "as purchased" condition, as stated in the extended warranty plan, I moved the doors so they open from the other side, this addresses the problem but now the doors open from the other side and it's sorta odd.

In any case, as I've resolved the situation, without the help of Circuit City, I will not be following up with the other news station nor the BBB. There's no point.

So... I'm now *not* going to accept ANY service from Circuit City, I will no longer shop there ever, and I'll spread the word about the way they treat their long-term customers. As far as I'm concerned, those fuckers can go clear out of business!
