Bad Service & Harassment

Dear Sir/Madam,

I Juanita Vermeulen ID nr 8304280047083 has been a Truworths customer for 11 years to date. I paid a R 220.00 short on my instalment of R 850.00 this month. I get harassed every day for the short payment via phone calls and SMS's. I mean seriously, I pay all the time, and due to short payment of R 220.00 I get harassed so much. The problem of the short payment was, my husband went to pay my account, and only let them swipe R 600.00. It was really not done on purpose, as he does not know what my instalments are. I'm not a convict, and have stuck to my payments regularly. I do not appreciate this convict treatment. Stop phoning me unless I stop paying!
And I will probably be black listed for this right?
You know what.... YOU HAVE JUST LOST A LONG TRUSTED CUSTOMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will pay my account until clear and close the account. I really don't need this.

Terrible service

To whom it may concern,

Terrible service
Name of the complainer: Christina Mondlane
Acc no: 10101108169264
Rude Employee no: 2006466 (found on the receipt)
Branch: Sandton City

I am writting this regarding the terrible service I received from one of your employees. He was very ignorant and rude towards me.

I got to the Truworths at Sandton where I got this guy, then explained that I was returning a t-shirt that I had bought last weekend, he asked if I had a receipt and I told him I had lost it. He went on telling me how important it is to have the receipt in a very rude manner, I just looked at him and gave him my drivers licence. He then went on asking me my ID. number, where and the date I bought it as if it wasn't my card. What annoyed me the most is that a white lady came and spoke to him and he became so nice and all smiles and calling her mam, while I was standing in front of him, he was acting as if I was invisible, he even offered to help her and told the other lady continue with me, the lady told him to finish with me first . He took about 10-15 minutes just to help me, he was busy talking to that lady, when his lady colleague who was overiding for him called him to order asking why he was talking to that lady while I was there and why he was taking so long. Guess what, he just gave me my drivers and receipt and turned away, with no "Thank you". Its the first time that I received such bad service from Truworths. I want him to be dealt with, and I would like to get feedback, please check the footage for the 17/11/2014 around 11:30-11:45.

What annoys me the most is that he didn't even feel any remorse even when his colleague was telling him he was doing wrong, and didn't care what I felt or thought, I tried ignoring him but he kept on getting worse as if he wanted me to feel his negativity and rudeness. I want to be last person that he treats this bad. And for a man to do that Gosh. I'm so dissappointed and feel bellitled and undermined. I want this guy to be dealt with, he is an embarrasment to all his other colleagues who always give great service and our nation as well. I work in customer service and know the do's and don'ts. He doesn't deserve that job at all.

Can I please get feedback on this matter.

Regards
Christina

Harassment by means of calls/ sms

Good day. My name is Jenny and I am not a Truworths customer. My friend Judith van Nelson is a customer of yours. Details: MS JA VAN NELSON, TRUWORTHS acc 10101328235020. She gave my no as reference only. However for the past year I received smses and calls from your collections department. Everytime I explain that I am not the account holder, yet they continue to harass me. I'm sick & tired of this. I've been promised to have my no removed, yet nothing happens. I would like to have the no 0720981785 immediately removed as reference to this account with immediate effect or I'll be forced to take legal action. Her contact no is +27 76 904 2223. Please update your details. Waiting to hear from your as a matter of urgency. Regards, Jenny

Highly irritated by your service

My Name is Palesa i previously had an account with Truworths and I bought my mother a cellphone from one of your stores in the Glen Mall, then months later the phone gave her problems and I had to take it back to the store for repairs and that was in January the 20th 2014, up until today I still don't have my mom's phone, and no one communicated with me on what is happen, when i gave them a call in July still no one knew anything, and i was told that my phone was couriered to the wrong branch and they don't want to release it,,,,,,,,,,,I am very furious , I am mad , i feel like suing you guys for the expenses you guys have caused me.

GOOD THING I CLOSED THE ACCOUNT.

Consistant Over charging on monthly basis

Hi,

I am Reginald Adam Claassen,ID 7004195270082 AND GOT A TRUWORTHS ACCOUNT. I've been complaining numerous times verbally to Rustenburg Waterfall Mall stores and even they were surprised. I always choose my selection on a twelve month basis but my payment irrespective if its at R15000 I own them and or R7000 I always pay in the region of R1500 to R1600 a month consistent because my monthly statement show so.There was times where I did not even buy anything, its still the same. I recently bought perfume about 3 months ago on a twelve month basis when my account was paid up to R7000.00 owing Truworths left,but the perfume was about +- R2000 and I was still paying R1500 a month, so my account would have been paid in full over 7 months with a 12 month agreement. Please check,this is ridiculous and its still going on and on, rectify and reply on e-mail address rclaassen@platmin.com.

Kind Regards
Reginald

Bad Service

Yesterday me and my husband went shopping at Gauteng Johannesburg THE GLEN mall it was 16:55 the door was still opened, as soon as we walked in two sales assistance (ladies) who were standing by door immediately closed to door, one told the other that they had already packed for the day and they don’t want me and my husband touching the clothes because they will have to clean up after us. Also claimed that its 17:00 they are going to take their bags and go home leave us there because they are tired. We continued shopping but then security and the two ladies followed us around, retouching the clothes we touched etc. We left with a lady who was ready to pay for her clothes but because of their attitudes left them there. they made our shopping uncomfortable and plain awkward. They were rude. My husband and I are going away for the weekend we couldn’t even shop for the clothes we need because of them. Please take your staff for customer services lessons before you lose loyal customers

Damaged boots

My name is Mugodo MV, Acc no : 10100152930359
I have been using Truworth account for more than 20yrs, on the 20/06/14 I bought a pair of boots for the amount of R1499,00.The 2 strings that were seemingly attached to the boot by glue become unattached to the boot and the elastic attachment on the other boots where showing some signs of worning out.I took the boots to Thohoyandou store wherein i was told to wait for the manager as she is still receiving stock and when she later come out, I showed her the boots and tried to reason with her and she told me there is nothing she can do,I will have to wait for a month for my boots.I asked her how am i going to cope without my boots for the whole month in this winter, and she told me she did not know as she does not work with damaged product only the quality people in Cape Town will attend to my problem.As a customer i felt i was not treated fairly and i also felt that the procedures of dealing with the damaged product are also not fair for the customers who had to wait for the whole month for a positive respond if lucky or negative response for that matter??

Refunded Item

On the 21st March 2014 my mother in law purchased a denim jeans for my husband as a gift for his birthday. At the time we were staying in JHB because of my job. He tried on the pants and it was too small. So we decide to take it to our nearest truworths store for an exchange. Unfortunately Truworths Man does not cater for the XX men so he couldn't find anything that he liked and we asked for a refund. The lady at the counter explained that they cannot refund the item as my mother in law purchased for the item with her credit card and its Truworths policy that the card holder must be present for refund items on cc. We took the pants back and decided that we will return it when we back in Cape Town. 3 months later we drove straight from the airport on our return from JHB and drove to my in laws who resides in Vredenburg as we are here to say hello and visit for the weekend before we go back home.

Luckily we have the pants in our suitcase and decided that seeing that we are here, we go to Vredenburg, Weskus Mall to exchange the pants at the store where it was purchased. At the store, the cashier very friendly explained that Truworths has a 1 month return policy which means no cash back. So we said, that`s fine, we fully understand but there is nothing in the store that he likes, can we get a voucher in return. ( Take note, that none of the people in the store wheres a name badge even). So this guys who we assume is a supervisor came to the desk and explained us the same story we received from the cashier. We asked ; " can we get a voucher in return then?" He`s response he needs to find out by the manager. We asked to see the Manager. She comes and explains to us the same thing. So we asked again, can we get a voucher seeing that according to Truworths we only have a 1 month to return the item back for a full refund. we don't want the money back , just give us a voucher instead. She immediately gets snobby and says: Well, there is nothing i can do". at this time, i was getting a bit annoyed because How can this manager just tell a customer that there is nothing she can do? She raised her voice, we raised our voice and she is the one to say first: " NO need to get rude with me". Now at this stage i havent even begun to be rude to her. I get the feeling and impression that she is racist because my husband is white and i am coloured and we gay. Her whole attitude changed when i started talking to her and she became very dismissive towards me.

I asked for the name and number of the Area Manager and i was told she is not allowed to give it. If she was a well trained manager, she would have said: " let me contact my area manager and find out if we can give you a voucher or not" instead she just dismissed the whole thing. We left the store and left the pants in the store with tags and everything still on at TRUWORTHS MAN - 561. This is the worst service i have ever received at any TRUWORTHS STORE. As a long supporting customer, this is the service i have received?Is this how Truworths deals with customer complaints instore?? When phoning the Customer Service Number on the back of the slip, i had to wait 30 minutes before some one answered. Now i understand why your Support Service is so busy because of all the complaints you get. If the pants was damaged or even the tag removed, i would say, i fully agree with the store manager but everything is still intact on the pants. The tags,, the price tag everything. she blatantly dismissed us and didn't even make an effort to assist us. I want answers and i want Truworths to address a personalised apology letter from this Store Manager at Branch 561 to myself and my pensioner Mother in Law, (who lost R399.99) apologise for her rude behaviour. I was a Store Manager for 6 years in a retail company and i have never ever experienced this type of behaviour and never treated my consumers like this. The Customer isn't always right, but whats right is right and whats wrong is wrong.

I hope that somebody will get back to me on this and my faith in Truworths be restored.

Minstreatment by the store Manager

My Name is Boitumelo Matloko, account no 10100167920244.
Contact Details - 082 687 2471
On the 23rd January 2014, I called Truworths Vaal Mall, spoke to a lady by the name of Palesa. I requested her to set aside a DH skirt for me, susequent to that i called Head Office ( Wazilwa - 021 4602982) requesting her to process the item through fashion delivery . Wazilwa then called me back allerting that Vaal Maal is saying the item is damaged, i assured her that i am willing to buy the item as is due to the fact my intention was to alter the item. The item was size 40 as 38 and 36 was sold out. my right size is 36.

I have been continuously calling Vaal Maal to find out about my garment, i was send from pillar to post. This morning i called the store again and spoke to Palesa personnaly who displayed a don't care attitude towards me, to add salt to the wound the manager also took the line from Palesa and displayed the same attitude. He even gave me his full name and work number if i want to report him. His name is Simon Makume - 9213627.

I am really frastated by the attitude displayed by the manager at Vall Mall, more especiaaly if its true that he is the manager. All i am asking is for Truworths to source the below garment for me due to the fact I bought a jacket already for that skirt, unless i be given authority to the return the jacket even though the time has lapsed.

Item No Style 1930, Type 227

Truworths sold me a DAMAGED MTN cell phone

On the 13th of December I bought a blackberry and Nokia for teenage cuzins that were visiting me before Christmas. The Nokia works fine but the Blackberry did not work we were told we have 7 days to come back to the store if the phone did not work and we came back 3 days later where we were told we should have come back the same day. Truworths happily took my money and told me that I damaged the phone. This is unacceptable as they sold me a damaged phone. I am not a technical expect when it comes to phones but if its damaged and they want to hide behind technicalities it is unfair practice to steal customer money.
