DELL — complaint
To whomever concerned,
The purpose of this email is to lodge a complain against the service of one of your sales staff - Andrew Wee, extension number 8632166.
At the beginning, he promised to let me know if he can throw in something for me after I placed my order. My order is placed on the 13th of June and still no news even till Tuesday morning. So I have to make a call down on the 15th June to check what is the matter. It was then Andrew told me that the credit card system is faulty on the 13th but I still don't understand why he didn't call to let me know on the next day, which is the 14th of June. However he seemed rather sincere, carries a rather pleasant tone of voice and have prompt follow-up calls so I let it passed.
However after the order is being sent to the factory, I have to chase him for information ALL THE TIME and even though most of the time he promised that he will call back, he failed to do so. It literally feels like I have to make the whole damn computer myself as when I didn't have the ready information online, I have to call and check and wait for the reply which Andrew refuses to call back every single time. On the 22th June, when I asked him about the delivery date which isn't available online even after 3 working days, I had to make the call near to the closing time of your hotlines and it was then he told me he do not have the information and will let me know the next day. If you have to let me know the next day, you should had call and not keep the customer hanging and then make them call you in the end! And of course I still didn't received a call from Andrew the next day as well. Fortunately, the information is available online then. But that doesn't make it a reason not to call back.
This is my second purchase from Dell as I remembered the last purchase to be rather pleasant. I even recommended my friends to buy from Dell, praising the high service standards and the quality of your products (my laptop serves me well till this day). But this latest purchase is far from satisfactory. In fact this purchase left me full of frustration, I need the computer urgently and I placed the order way beforehand and now because of all those delays, I have to borrow from my friend just to complete the task. If this is the way you treat your customers, I can assure you this is the last purchase I would ever transact with Dell. And advising those around me not to do so as well.
Moreover, less hassle need to encountered from other brands, without the need of waiting for 3 whole weeks and needing to borrow a credit card or cheque book just to make a purchase. Prices are rather competitive as well, with the same or comparable specifications.
$1500 might seem nothing to you but it's an amount which I have to scraped and saved. I expect better treatment for that kind of money.
Feel free to check your call recordings if you have doubts in any of the points I made in this email. All the required dates are stated.
