Wal-Mart is always screwing over customers, Always.

I have been trying to work with Wal-Mart to get a new security camera system. Placing the order on line has been an ordeal. They keep accepting the order and then canceling it for security concerns, but have no idea why their computer is canceling it. This has been going on for weeks. I place the order, they accept it, their computer cancels it, and they don't know why. I even tried to call every Wal-Mart between Utica and the Vermont border. All but one (which had no camera dept) immediately said the system was not available in stores but they could sell me a better system from the same company for $100 more. I refused to fall for their "bait and switch" scam. Nor is the system out of stock on line, their computer just keeps rejecting the order and they don't know or care why.
Finally, Customer Service told me this morning I would have to go to the nearest Wal-Mart and place the order there. I could pay with a physical credit card or cash, but they could not accept payment on line. The Bank has assured me there is no problem with the credit or debit cards I tried, and at one point Wal-Mart actually deducted the money for the system and then put it back into my account when they canceled the order. I arranged a ride to Wal-Mart, North Utica with my debit card in hand, but also enough cash if there was a problem. The Manager of the Electronics Dept took me over to the Dot Com desk, but the only employee who could do the order was on break and could not be disturbed. I waited 15 minutes for her to return. She listened to my request and then told me she could not place the order. She advised I would have to go back home and place the order and then come back in and pay for it. She would not help me. When I got back and called Customer Service, they told me since I had left the store without them placing the order, they could not help me. They said they would refer the matter for more action and a supervisor would get back to me via email WITHIN 5 TO 10 DAYS!
So if you were in Wal-Mart, North Utica this morning and saw a lunatic hobbling to the door with his cane while shouting "Wal-Mart is a crook, a thief and a liar."; there was a reason for my anger.

They didn't take your money how are they crooks? You sound like a lunatic. Order off ebay they will take your money and probably save money for same item. Now on another hand there service suck if someone is uneducated they should say they don't know instead of answering questions they are un sure of. I stay away from walmart as much as possible especially around the first of the month.

Well, the idiots responding to my rant show their limited mentality. Yes, they did take my money and then gave it back. It cost me time and money to get together a crew to install the system which Wal-Mart failed to deliver. Based on their instructions over the phone, I paid someone to take me up there to resolve the issue and got shafted. If they had been truthful that they were not going to sell the item they continue to advertise, I would of gone elsewhere earlier. I did find the same system elsewhere and that company matched Wal-Mart's price saving me $30. But the fact I was able to get the system elsewhere does not excuse Wal-Mart's actions.

This is not the first shafting I have received from Wal-Mart, but will be the last.

who cares not me. I go there a lot and have only one problem. I really hate it when the coons take the electric carts and drive around. young coons that can run circles around everyone in the store. the old coons to that have no reason to use them. first welfare pays for the food and we have to give them a cart to drive around the store. they think its a co-cart track. why does walmart let them do this? they also use the handicapped spaces because they think they are entitled and have no permit. then we have the fat ass people who are to fat to walk so they use the carts. get off your fat asses and get some exercise. is being fat a handicap? let the old cripple people use them you scumbags. go use your ebt cards at aldi. that place is chuck full of scum and coons. I gotta get me a coon hound to scar them off.

Wise Guy thinks he's a wit with his comments. Well, he's half right, he's a half-wit. Don't know how to order something from Wal-Mart? The problem is that Wal-Mart's system is so screwed up it can't handle the order. I order fine, they fail on their end. Penny pinching? Glad you are in a situation where blowing an extra $100 is pennies to you. To us working people, we need to stretch our money.

Radio Shack doesn't think illegal "bait and switch" scams are a sign of a crook. No wonder his namesake stores are being forced to close 500 more stores.

And Dope, oops I mean Nope, resents being revealed as an idiot but has no problems calling me names.

I won't even address the racist bias exhibited by Walmart Stalker.

It is dimwits like these that have made Topix the cesspool of the half educated trolls whose lives are so shabby they have to try to drag everyone else down to their level.

I could give a rat's a** what these duds think. I just wanted to vent my anger at Wal-Mart for advertising a product they refuse to sell and using illegal "bait and switch" schemes to steal money from people.

All right, numb nuts, time to respond with some more sappy half-wit comments to feed your egos.

Well if you don't give a rats a ss what anyone thinks then why did you comment?

As far as your issue with Walmart...well they seem to be doing ok financially. Something tells me your mind isn't up to the intense task of ordering items online. Perhaps you can find a second grader to help you next time?

In all fairness if you are going to comment on someone's "English" you may want to proof read first. You essentially write like a third grader.

Nope continues to show his lack of understanding. There was never a problem with ordering the item. The problems were all on Wal-Mart's end in filling the order and they could not understand why their on line ordering system is crap. You can order all you want, but if the company doesn't have the capacity to handle simple orders; you won't get crap. To explain it so even your simple mind can understand. I researched the best deal for the proper system, placed the order as intended, and Wal-Mart then screwed everything up.

And Wiseguy, no it is not for porn. It is a security system like in most businesses today. Nor was there any mention of a welfare card. I mentioned my debit card and the company credit card. I understand you are probably only familiar with using welfare benefit cards. I don't fault you on that. I support public assistant for special people like you.

I am always amazed at the people who hide behind phony names to take pot shots at everyone else's comments. That way when their friends comment on how idiotic some comment is, they don't have to worry that they will find out they posted it.

I was going to make a derogatory comment about their mother in anger, but the poor women have already suffered enough knowing they gave birth to that worthless troll living on the internet in their basement.

Okay, your turn to insult me. Please at least try to make it readable if not witty.
