Global Wedding & Events Co. / POSTS PAST DEC 31ST 2008
I am noticing my complaints from the ComplaintsBoard.com being posted on other sites that I did not post on.
Whoever this poster is and for whatever reasons this person has posted my information with my name I am not aware.
What I believe this person’s intention is (whoever they are)trying to incriminate me for conflict of interest. They are trying to make it “look like” I am continuing to post complaints while having a business relationship with the establishment.
I have decided unwillingly to continue to do business with Global Wedding & Events Co. As of Dec 31st and have not posted anything since. Any posts after this date are not mine.
The only reason I have chosen to continue doing business with this company is because they refuse to give me back my $1500.00 deposit without going to court. I am also unwilling to give my money away by force. I have spoken to the Ministry of Consumer Protection and they have pointed out that I am able to cancel my contract based on the Consumer Laws of future performance, please see below.
I Christy Luu do not authorize any post past December 31st 2008. I request to have any of my posts after this date removed. Whoever this person is, they has stooped far below ethical standards.
Note that Ministry of Consumer Protection’s First step is mediation. With enough complaints businesses can be investigated as well as have their business license pulled.
