Indiatimes / Terrible customer service

1 India Review updated:
Contact information:

I got very bad experiences with indiaTimes shopping. I placed two order through Indiatimes. The first order was canceled after 10 days citing "Out Of stock". The second order has been shipped 15 days back and i haven't yet received it. I have called customer care multiple times for no avail. When i asked them to at least cancel the order they took down the request. When I asked them by what date would I get my money back, they told me that - WITHIN 7 DAYS I WOULD BE TOLD ABOUT THE STATUS OF MY CANCELLATION REQUEST!!

They are ridiculous on top of being arrogant.

    Indiatimes - Non delivery of defective product replacement

    The story sees to be everywhere same with indiatimes. I purchased a bluetooth headset. Their supplier Teknix supplied wrong model. I returned it, never got back the correct replacement. Atleast 15 e mails every time generating new complaint number promise response and action but I believe that Indiatimes is only for looting people and they are running a scam on internet shopping.

    Shame on Indiatimes.

    Indiatimes - Non delivery of product!
    Indiatimes online shopping

    On 8-10-2007 I have participated in online auction for a degital camara, on 9-10-2007 i received a mail stating that my bidding was confirmed (Order No.200298540) and Rs.12850 was deducted from my credit card, and the product would reach my address D.No.969, 25th A Cross, 2nd Sector, HSR Layout, Bangalore-34(Ph.No.91-9342513636), but I did not receive it so far. Inspite of hundreds of mails and calls to local (Karnataka state) customer care center; neither the product delivered to me or money returned. They sent me a POD of TNT Couriers showing some Saroja Reddy has signed and received the product; but I stay alone in my house; it has been clearly usurped or delivered in wrong address by the TNT Couriers delivery boy. Inspite of so much of correspondent the Indiatimes shopping people are shedding their responsibility just by saying that the product has been delivered in right address, though it is very clear that the signature of the product receiver is showing as Saroja Reddy but not Raja Shekar (ie.,me). Please assist me how can I claim back my money looted by India times shopping.

    Indiatimes shopping is worst and most irresponsible on earth. I want to ### on their face, kick black and blue my making them nude on the road, as what they are doing is white collar robbery/looting by cheating the common public.

    i ordered finidng nemo dvd on 4th october they charged my citi card and after more than week they cancelled my order(reason :out of stock) funny thing is they still has this dvd listed on their website to order
    ..i tried to email their customer servcie which is given in email( but all my emial got delivery failure messages.and now they refunded in the form of india times gift voucher which is useless. as i dont have what i want their site and i dont need what they have. more over the cancellation was indiatimes fault so they should refund in the form of original payment..i tried to contact my citi bank in india they also helpless.i used my nri account to purchase.
    india times cheating customers by stealing their card info and makingg money out of them after that they are issuing gift voucher which, one should use on their website with in specified time .if you forget about card they make full profit.i dont know how to deal about this in india, hope my citi card will take care of this.. do we have any complaint boards which can take actual actions against such things(like BBB in usa). let em know if you guys have any more details. i just want to share my first and last experience with india times. be aware search before you shop that was my experience.

    Indiatimes - The major management of this company does not seem to have enough staff
    United States

    I renewed recently email(what they call meramail) recently on my domain.But iI did not use the same and asked for refund.But these cheats have become totally quiet despite several legal warnings and notice under conusmer protection act.The intentions are very clear to not refund money for p[roduct not purcahsed and used by me.It seems these guys think that as they belong to times of india, they can get away with anything in the country.It is matter of shame that times of India group behaves with such irrsponsible manner.Not only their customer service is only one sided comunication by customer, it is simply fourth grade.It is a badly managed ’bania ’ company and cheap organisation and source of continuous harssment, stress and cheating. The major management of this company does not seem to have enough staff and they are third rate idiots and poorly trained with bad behaviour. if you phone after spending tens of rupees, computre talks and finally no one talks.It is mockery.Avoid these guys completely and spread the message to save others from falling in trap of this third class company. It is shame on them.

Please take my complaint in all seriousness and terminate the service immediately. My no. is 8765355109.
