My sister was diagnosed with cancer. I was in a position to take care of her, driving her to treatment and doctor’s appointments and staying with her all day as the effects of chemo and radiation took their toll.
Early on, and in thanks, she sent me a chocolate ‘bouquet’ from Bloomex (Sept. 9, 2009). Needless to say, we got the wrong order. Customer service was of little help. To date, I have not received the chocolates nor a refund.
I won’t bore you with the details, we all have our own, but Visa tried their best and although they agree the situation is suspicious, they were not able to refund our order. What a shame.
Visa did say that if there are a large number of complaints regarding a specific vendor, they can discontinue the vendor’s ability to use Visa as a credit supplier. I will be following up with Visa International at https://www.visa.ca. I am aware I may not get far, but I will try.

Also, this company has an unsatisfactory record with the BBB due to its decision to not accept or respond to complaints from the BBB.
The company has advised our office that they will not be responding to any complaint filed through the BBB. That does not mean they will not respond directly to the consumer.
