Complaints & Reviews

unacceptable behavior!

Sun Shape Troy, Michigan.

Pulled into have my windows tinted with my brand new car, so new that it wasn’t hard to remember that it only had 564 miles on the OD. After reviewing the work and as I drove onto Maple road in rush hour traffic I was shocked to see 580 on the OD. I was already late for a client meeting so I called about it the next day. Getting the response I guess I would have expected from a company that drove my brand new, sporty not another on the road sports car. “We wouldn’t do that”. So thats what I’m telling you—Don’t do that. Don’t go to Sun Shade, Troy location. Because smart people, “wouldn’t do that”. This Sun Shade store is privately owned and isn’t affiliated with other stores. Don’t let Sun Shade—block out better judgment.

    A new complaint: Someone calling himself Richard Gray is attempting to perpetrate fraud. He uses a yahoo.co.uk address to respond to, but when I opened his mail to block further mail, his address was '[email protected] hotmail.com.

    Thought you might like to know.

    Aloha,

    Sir
    Terrorism and criminal activities is there, was there and always will be there, they will change their method time to time and changes their faces as require, types and structure, and take the help of technology and so on. And for that we will have to be well prepared. We don’t know from where Terrorism might start but we will have to make a run time situation, where there will be no chance to start any chance of Terrorism, and even if it happens there will be enough footprints to catch them.

    Types of Cyber Crime :
    Types of cyber crime are like this
    1).Un authorized Access in to any Computer or Server, Website, E-Mails of International Organizations, Government Organizations, Banks or personnel for collecting information.
    2). Un Authorized use of name, logo, Format of International Organizations, Government Organizations, Banks for money transaction.
    3).Fake E-Commerce Sites.
    4).Building Porno sites.
    5).Blackmailing people by making or collecting nude picture.
    6).E-Mail threatening.
    Any of these attempts can make the whole nation or individual’s life unstable.


    Cyber crime protection :

    Even though cyber crime detection and prevention is a tough thing but it is not impossible. For this we will have to work with a very big chain of government and technical organizations together. Cause a single person or a single country can’t do it. It should be taken step from the root level.
    1). E-Mail id should be created and verified by Citizen ID card and Passport number and this database can be verified from anywhere for that particular person. Like I want to create one ID in Gmail – when I register for the email, they will verify my ID and Passport number from our country Citizen Database server. Like this from any country for any person this verification is very important.

    2). Intel and all other motherboard company, Microsoft, IBM, SUN should develop and upgrade this Fingerprint technology, and this technology will be built-in with each and every motherboard, every computer will run by its exact digital identity. E-Mail sites registration policy should be integrated for fingerprint verification, to take the image of fingerprint and save it into their database.

    3). Serious punishment system for the crime, so the criminal will know if he or she commit any crime so that they knows that what will happen if they are caught.

    4). Software and applications should be integrated with country government server globally, these applications can send and receive the data of daily new citizen ids, and the daily sales tax collection of every business and personnel. Globally ID Card database system still not integrated to share globally to verify any id from any location like from a bus station or any hospital.


    These steps I can’t take it by my own. It should be proposed by every countries responsible ministry and come to a decision. I know it might be not possible for now, but some day this will be the only way and technology to stop cyber crime and detect every single individual in the web.


    I am an IT Professional. Even though I don’t have that much institutional educational background about IT, cause before 10 years back IT institutes were only started their activities, they were not proper organized and was so costly, so I’d to build my IT career by myself.
    I went to Saudi Arabia at 2001 and my age was like 25. I worked there, one of the biggest Furniture Company “ABDUL WAHED FURNITURE “as the IT Manager for 5 years. I developed their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Application, which was 2 language supported (Arabic, English), and seven branches was connected with WAN at runtime. Now I am trying to build my own Software firm “Enterprisesoft”, and some IT Consultancies.
    I work with VB.Net, C#, ASP.Net, VB6, Javascript, SQL Server, ORACLE, MYSQL, Photoshop, Illustrator, 3DMax. Can build any type of complex Windows and Web based Database related Application.

    Thank you very much for your valuable time. Will be very happy if I can meet with you. May Allah keep all of you and us Safe, Happy, and Healthy.

Call 1 (4/8/2007): In the first call the person said something to the effect that I need to purchase the whole system for India, when I was trying to see if I could but the power supply and Power cord, I got disconnected (my bad).

Call 2 (4/8/2007): So I call up again and explained that I had lost the connection and I was looking for a whole power supply kit that will work in India. The person responded if I needed a power cord or just the brick, I check the price and said send me both.

Today (4/13/2007): I received the prower supply only (not the cord and does not seem to be new, this is not the issue). When I checked the power specification, it is the same as the one I have (shipped originally with the console), so I call up the call center and say that I did not receive the correct power supply. After explaining couple of times and being on hold for several minutes for couple of time the person, told me that I will need to buy a transformed in India. (Initial this person did not even know the voltage in India). On which I said, I wanted to return this power supply as it is of no use to me. He tried to convince me to keep it and take it India, I said I do not want to carry two power supply as they are bulky and do not solve my problem. He then transfered me to his supervisor (I believe Allen), who after understanding my issues put me on hold for server minutes and came back with a answer that he has escalated it to Microsoft and it will take 5-8 day and I should hang on to this power cord. Then he said something that was troubling me.

He said that my request to use in India was made only today. This is ridiculous as the whole purpose of the call and to get the power cord was to use in India. He also added that he has reviewed the calls I have made and said that I have not told them that I wanted to use in India. When I asked him if he could replay my conversation for me he declined. I even confronted with him that I had a conversation regarding PAL and NTSC system on the first call.

Now, I have two question as a Microsoft customer what are my options.
1) Microsoft is selling XBOX 360 in India and don't they have original power supply that work in India.
2) Don't I as a consumer have a right to return an item that I have just purchased with a certain time period.

    I have similar problem. I bought one from US and took that in India. Now Microsoft tells me that I need to buy a whole new xbox 360 and they cannot sell me a xbox 360 power cord... this is ridiculous.

    I completely agree with you. Actually the situation here in India is absurd for most manufacturers, but right now, MS is the one that really gets my goat. My brother bought a console in Dubai and when he shifted back home this year the power supply conked off in a month or so. I got a replacement from Dubai because MS refused to provide one and it conked of again a couple of days ago. Obviously I am pissed. But the most infuriating thing is the attitude at MS. I understand why they have a policy regarding warranty support in India, but not providing spares when one is willing to pay for it is ridiculous. First, you can easily penalise customers for buying grey by charging for parts instead of warranty support. Or even charge slightly higher for the part to serve as a deterrent. But going even beyond that, surely there is a way to manage this in a way that differentiates between fair use and unfair use from their perspecitive.

hardware failure

Son bought Xbox360 on the first day available 11/05. It has had two hardware failures since then, both outside of 90 day warranty. Both times we have insisted that MS replace unit at no charge due to State of Maine law prohibiting limitation of implied warranty/merchantability for up to four years of coverage. Incidental and consequential damages are also NOT disallowed.

MS customer service is an oxymoron. They constantly try to get you to think there is nothing they can do and that you have not choice but to pay for all repair costs. Yet, I have them picking up my defective unit at their charge and have them replacing it with a new one. It DID take six phone calls and much time on phone on hold and non-English foreigners AND emailing the VP for MS Customer Service and Support.

PLEASE check you state's 'consumer protection' laws - either on web or by calling - because MOST states have laws on books giving you BETTER warranty than that stated in owner's manual. GET a copy of the law and BE persistent and UNWAVERING in your demands. The place where you purchased it is ALSO EQUALLY responsible to the buyer! Bring it back for a new/replacement unit and BRING THE LAW copy.

IF you had items delivered - they MUST pick up at their cost or repay you for shipping back (incidental and consequential damages/costs).

DO NOT EVER EVER EVER PAY FOR EXTENDED WARRANTY unless you already know what your state covers. These RIPOFFS are the biggest part of the store profits for a given item - check out www.consumerreports.com to check this out!

Got a defective Microsoft product and got a ### - call this guy:

    We purchased a xbox 360 game system for my son Christmas 2006 and the system has stopped working 1 year and 1 month after the purchase. The warranty on this product is 1 year. Surprise surprise!!! After speaking with a manager at GameStop we were told that there was an extended warranty issued by Microsoft because of the problems customers have had with these game systems. The warranty was for an additional 2 years. Evidently, there have been A LOT of problems with this system. I called the number given by the manager and was told the extended warranty only covers certain problems and mine, of course, was not included. I will have to pay an additional $99 for the repair of the system on top of the almost $1000 for the game system, accessories, and games that have been purchased just over a year ago. The public should demand that these large companies be held accountable for all of the problems that they obviously know about via the repairs that come in through their repair department. I just wanted to issue a complaint to let everyone know that I would never purchase another game system from Microsoft and hopefully give information to anyone thinking of purchasing one. I am also hopeful that if enough people issue complaints and speak up that something may be changed and maybe that they will not think of us as just another number and actually start thinking of us as customers.

    Call the better buisiness bureau...microsoft has a bully attitude when dealing with people and hardware problems...they will not budge on anything and are totally useless

    I have been talking with the BBB and they are actually being helpful..

    My original console lasted about 8 months before I got a new one and now after another 9 months will not read media and turns off randomly

    I called again and they said only the 3 red lights are covered for free...and I had to pay 100 bucks to get a new one.and when I refused to pay and asked for reasons why they would not stand behind their product I got the usual sorry sir B.S...and she even had the nerve to tell me that it sounds like the three red lights are probably going to happen and to call back when that happens.But it won't read any cds, if I can't use it how are the red lights going to happen!

    I for one have had it with Microsoft and will be going to get a nice new PS3 (That will work for more than a few months)...If you want to get back at microsoft, just spread the word.Let anyone who is thinking about buying a system know that the 360 is a pile of CRAP and the support sucks!!!

    I hope their next console flops!
