SImplefloors selling a defective product and standing behind a warranty that absolves them of any liability for their product Internet -

January 31, 2013, Anonymous

we purchased over 1000 sq ft of lapacho hand scrapped engineered maple flooring because it had a better janka rating than oak which we had used in our last house (and were very happy with). we had the floor in mere days when we realized the mistake we had made. The "maple" floors dent, scratch, and splintered immediately. Again, we have always had hardwood floors in our home, our last house had engineered oak floors so I know what kind of wear and tear they should assume. We cannot wear shoes inside, the kids cannot put any toys on the floor...

I ordered a pair of shoes and some dresses last Sunday in hopes of receiving them by this Saturday for a night out. I know that is cutting it close, so I thoroughly reviewed the Shipping policies and FAQ. The website said the items ship in 2 days after ordering, so I knew I would be fine because I live literally 30 min. away from their warehouse in CA (they don't allow you to pick up your items, they have to be shipped). When I checked on my order on Thursday (4 days), it still hadn't shipped. When I called their customer service, I was able...

I ordered over $169.00 worth of Salt Water Fish, Coral & Sea Anemones and when they wanted to ship it happened to be -6 in Illinois where I live. I called them and rescheduled it for the following week as it was to be in the 60's and added more to my order. They state on their website that before shipping they check the weather forecast to insure no delays, but if they had done this they wouldn't have scheduled the 1st ship date. We received our delivery and the temp was in the 60's but when I opened the Styrofoam container I discovered a...

A long time ago if a person committed a felony, odds were many companies would give them a fair shot or second chance if the crime wasn't horrific, sexual in nature, or something dangerous. That I can understand. For the longest time when employers did their hiring most of them would hire felons. Today's employment most employers go through Temp Agencies, Staffing Companies, or Employment Agencies. ALL OF THESE AGENCIES ARE VIOLATING THE LAW!! They are violating the law because none of them will hire a felon at all!!! They do this because they...

Just like everyone else I paid them close to $500 and got nothing in return. This was back in early Nov 2012..it is now Feb 2013. You used to be able to leave voicemails now their phone says they don't accept voicemails and to send an email. Regardless neither ever get answered. Thank God I paid using American Express. They are the most wonderful credit card to work with when you have such problems. They are refunding my money and are looking into dropping this company from their customers totally. Makes me sick that I did not look at ripoff report first before buying. I will next time! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me!

This company uses deceptive practices in leading you to believe you have contacted your local cable company to order cable tv/Internet services. You can easily find them online under the name of Comcast Cable and they answer the phone using a name that includes ""Comcast" in it, NEVER mentioning their company name. They take money up front, on the call, via a debit/credit card for things you do not need to buy from your cable company to get cable services. I spent an hour online filling a complaint with the FTC in an effort to stop thi...

I bought a puppy out of the Remo and Valleta litter. When I talked to him about getting a puppy we agree about only getting and paying top dollars for a top quality puppy or that he would reimburse me if I was not happy. Sure enought he sent me a puppy that had ticks and with all kinds of worms and a huge belly. He asked me to return the puppy and upon him getting the puppy back that he would give me my money back. He verified that he got the puppy via phone and after that he never unswared my phone calls or gave me any money back. Please be aware of this guy and do not get any dogs or make any dealings with him.

Purchased and Otterbox Defender for my iphone 4s. It took almost 3 weeks to arrive. The item came in a plastic baggy not the packaging for a new iphone Otterbox. I own one allready and was just replacing it. The item was not as advertised, it was clearly fake. I sent multiple emails but the only response was an automated email stating they would reply within 3 days. No reply was ever received. There are no phone numbers to contact them directly.
