We have all been through it. Going shopping, seeing something we like, and putting down a down payment. And just like Dan, sometimes there is a problem with the deposit.
Dan left for buy a couch from a shop in Detroit. After " shopping ", a sales agent approached him and showed him or her a display model available. When some thinking, and taking a few photos with his mobile, Dan sought after the couch to become put on hold.
'Our policy is always to take a deposit for all layaway's". The sales broker says.
"$50 ought to it. Let me obtain the paperwork".
Looks reasonable. Dan hands over cash for the deposit, and signs some little bit of paper, that he thinks is a receipt.
Dan gets home and illustrates his wife the photos. She hates the colors, and the style of the pillows. She mumbles something about their style being more of an baroque, rather then neoclassic, or something like that.
Dan goes back to the store, tracks down the telemarketer, and explains he just received a lecture on design styles. The couch is not really suitable. He asks with regard to his deposit back.
That's when everything falls apart.
The solutions explains to Dan that the deposit is non-refundable, however it can be used towards another chair. The agent points to a small bit of writing at the bottom of the receipt. Seems like Dan got hooked into signing something he do not intend or understand.
Dan is a pickle and must have help.
Some of the ways Dan should go concerning getting his best term deposit rates back.
Make some notes with what happened when you went in the store. Get specific. That which was asked, answered and claimed. It is important you've got your facts straight. Highly detailed and clear.
Contact the general Manager of the store, and show him/her that had the telemarketer properly informed you it was a non-refundable deposit, you would not have placed it. You must establish a "but for". Show the cause and affect, and show that the affect would have been different with a different cause.
The important thing here is to show that the sales agent made this error, together with without the error you would probably not have made the deposit. If the store was not clear in their deposit policy, and the staff knew you do not understand the policy, you have entitlement to it being returned.
In the event the manager is being uncooperative, next contact the store headquarters. Ask for the regional manager and explain the challenge. If the store is locally owned, and not part of a national chain, then require the owners. Should people still get no response, put your issue in writing, and mail it to the store's address, attention managers. Keep your letter limited, and get for a deadline to own money returned. At this point it is probably well worth your while to file a complaint with the Attorney Generals Office.
In the U. S. the tastes States' Attorney General Office, has a Consumer Grumbles Division. They will take formal complaints from citizens who feel they are wronged. Google your condition, with the words Lawyer General. Go to an individual section. You should see outcomes file a complaint.
