- Wedding: July 2006
First off I have to tell everyone to make sure you cover your butt and research everyone you are going to spend money with!
My sister is getting married in March and found dresses online from little flowers by oddyssy that she loved. They were VERY pricy but they said I had to order by January 1 to get them on time so since I could not find other dresses my sister liked I went ahead and spent $561 on two flower girl dresses and an 18month vest in green and white plaid. By the way it took 7 phone calls jst to place the order because nobody ever answers the phone or calls you back when you leave a message. Right away I realized that was too much money to spend and the girl told me it would still be a close delivery to the wedding date. I called the very next morning to see if I could change the order to fabric instead of dresses because it was cheaper and much faster. After 26 calls I finally got through. The $561 was already pending on my checking account but the owner said no problem they would make the change and credit me back the difference. I asked for a confirmation and she said she would email it to me. I called her again the next day because I forgot to ask how long it would take for the credit to take, nobody ever called me back! I waited a couple of days and still no confirmation for my first order (which the money was already taken out) OR the change order. At this point I am getting VERY nervous! I want this material but I also thought that I might be getting scamed! I have no way of proving this order, no email no confirmation #, NOTHING. Then I went to the Better Business Bureau and looked up their rating and it was an F! I started to panic because all the reveiws were the same as the problem I was having. I sent her a final email saying that I was going to contact my bank if she did not call me back. I called my bank to dispute the charges and what do you know? I get emails out the wazoo from the owner. She cancelled my order and said she would give me a full refund. Guess what? that never happened! She just credited me back $411 wich is $150 short of what she owes me. She is accusing me of buyers remorse when all I ever wanted was a confirmation that my order had been placed!!!
I wasn’t going to post anything bad about them because my husband posted a review and she threatened to “take matters further” with us if we did not take them down. We took them down and I still don’t have my money so as far as I am concerned if you are going to STEAL my money I will post whatever I want.
Lesson of the century is do not do business with little flowers of odyssy and do not use your debit card! use your credit card you are more protected from people like this.
