Spiegel / Newport Newsspiegel is a dishonest company. shame on you!

Spiegel.com used to be a reputable online company. I am appalled that they are still allowed to conduct a so-called legitimate business and con people out of their money with online and catalogue purchases.

Take the time to read all the negative reviews on this company because they are all true from disappointed and dissatisfied customers. The following is what I am having to deal with.

I placed an order on April 5th, 2012 for a leather jacket paid the unreasonable shipping charges. I never received an email confirmation or tracking number for my paid purchase.

I called the company on 3 different occasions to check on the status of this order and got 3 different answers. It feels like total disorganization and lack of competent management and that this company is a totally trying to rip people off and a big hot mess.

1st call on 4/7/2012-Spoke to a lady rep. She said my order is still processing. No ### sherlock-I can read that online in my order status. She proceeds to tell me that it takes 5-7 business days for an order to be processed and shipped from their "warehouse" Also told me that there will not be a tracking number for packages under 1 pound. Say what? I paid 8.95 for shipping and I won't be provide with a way to see when I will get my package? That was a red flag for me. I started looking up other reviews and found a bunch of pretty recent complaints about other customers being charged and never getting their purchase or a refund.

Call #2-happened on 4/9/2012 to confirm the above info. I spoke to a "Towanda" she proceeds to tell me that my order was CANCELLED due to the product being out of stock. I asked her why wasn't I sent an email confirmation of any kind? Its been a week since I placed my order. Her reply was that their emailing system was being worked on because only certain customers were getting "these" cancellation emails about their orders. I asked her WHEN did the cancellation of my order come in? 4/8/2012 she said. Sunday I thought to myself? Now I am concerned remembering how I read that Spiegel will STILL take charge the purchase amount from my credit card and I will NEVER see a refund.

I place another call (#3) right after I hung up and spoke to another lady "Shaniqua" who sounded very much like the 1st lady but gave a different name. She told me that my order was NOT CANCELLED and still in processing. WTF? really? She also said she just sent me an email saying that my order has not been cancelled and is still processing. I never got that email. These customer service liars always sound pleasant, apologetic and empathic. Reassuring you that your paid item will arrive by end of the week so they can get you off the phone.

Now this whole thing sounds super SHADY. SPIEGEL is no longer a respectable company that conducts questionable business practices in my book.

I hung up feeling so confused and angry that this company can try to cheat people out of their money and get away with it because they train their unethical customer service people to lie and make up any type of excuses to prolong the transaction process so the consumer will wait and hope they they will get their orders and then miss the 25-30 days that they have to even try to get a refund from their financial institution.

I have to wait another week until I can file an investigation with my bank to stop payment or try to get a refund.

CUSTOMERS BEWARE! DO NOT PURCHASE from SPIEGEL.

    Please apologize and stop impersonating me. I also think it was you who hacked my account and called Tasha a ###. You are the one hacking my account. I have not posted a reply until today. There are two JulesNYC, one who is another account and the other who hacked my main account.

    user you have no f*cking right to tell others not to post on my review. As I stated I only posted this review. I only posted three or four replies. I only replied today. The rest were not by me. In some cases my account was hacked and in other cases someone used an capital I instead of an L.

    Get a life instead of harassing me.

    Who are you kidding all the replies have the same writing style and childish remarks as the original poster and the fact that you know how it is being done proves more that you are just trolling your own review. Possibly for more replies.

    EVERYONE

    I encourage you to stop posting the poster is only posting all these insults for attention to their review. To get more replies.

    OOOPs, looks like I accidentally logged on to the newly created account. My impersonator even used the same password as me. Strange, perhaps that is why the admin is saying that we have the same IP address? My bad.

    One more thing I emailed the moderators of this impersonation and they said that all the posts by JulesNYC have the same IP address. Even if this is the truth it is because the person impersonating me lives in Grandview Indiana as well. Also the person impersonating me is using a capital I instead of L..

    How do you know that they are just not replying or busy. If they are busy how do you know they are not pedophiles who are busy molesting and raping innocent children? Do you know these people personally. No, and since they are all employees of Spiegel and since Spiegel does not have any standards of hiring maybe they are hiring only child rapists. Maybe it is a requirement to hire idioits, ###s and child rapists.

    WOW!! another [censored]BAG who does not have a freaking life!

    I wrote the original post and made only 3 comments.
    The rest of these comments that are "supposedly" written from JulesNYC for the past 2 hours is some ### who registered TODAY mimicking the same name, using a cap I as an L, from Grandview Indiana. You are so pathetic and need to pretend to be someone else to egg others on for a reaction with your comments?!!! How dare you turn a serious complaint into something to entertain yourself with-

    You and Tasha4 should definitely get together, get off this forum and GET A LIFE!!!

    Well considering 90 percent of the people are not replying back I assume they are too busy raping innocent defenseless children to reply back so yes I do have proof that most of the users on this site are pedophiles.

The reason I have issues here is a bunch of employees of Spiegel who are defending their company and insulting me. I have issues because no one is agreeing with me and you are all gang raping me.

    If you can talk to anyone how you want than they can share their opinions just like you can share yours. The only difference is they are doing it in a more mature way and you are doing it in a childish way.
