Great forum here. I have been researching RD's for a few months before I finally took the plunge to buy one. Well I called V1 last Monday to order a refurbished detector. They kept telling me over and over that they didnt have any and that it might be months before they get one. I kept telling her that was fine and to go ahead and place me down for one; so she reluctantly did. She said she would have someone call once it was about to ship out. Well, no later than 3 hours after I place my order I get a call saying that it will ship out that day through UPS ground. UPS is a 2 day shipment to my location so come Saturday when I didnt have it I began to wonder where the hell it was. So i called this morning and the lady told me there was some kind of crediting error (I was originally charged full price before I told her to change it to a refurb) and she said because of that credit there was some kind of accounting error that prevented the refurb unit from going out. They have also charge the full price to my card and have yet to credit it back...so now I have a 405 charge and a 365 charge on my credit card for a detector I have yet to recieve.
Im leaving tomorrow for a road trip and wanted the detector for that trip however it doesnt look like I will have it. Think I can get them to eat the charge for overnighting the thing?
Anyone else have such a bad experiene with just the shipping? Anyone ever complained and gotten something for free? Say a carry case or remote display? Thanks...Sorry for my first post being a vent.
