A Thousand Apologies EXPLINATION

Post by CurseTheSeen » Wed Feb 20, 2008 8:11 pm

Okay, first off let me say that I'm sorry to those who placed pre-orders for the Vivisect Playset. Like I stated in the notes I sent, we had a problem with stock. I was expecting an extra case in my wholesale order and things really got screwed up from there. I had already opened most of the blind boxes when I realized that I had a pre-order for a full case and it was too late for me to go back and close the blind boxes up. I admit, I should have e-mailed all the people who placed pre-orders and let them know about the problem. Instead I sent the opened blind boxes because those were all I had to send. I figured that the customers would rather have opened boxes instead of none at all. I now see how this comes off as me "scamming" or something, but I assure you that was not my intention in the least. I recently (on Monday) received 2 more cases of blind boxes and I let everyone know that they're back in stock on my site. I have talked to a few people who are unhappy with their opened boxes and I've stated that I will gladly issue a FULL REFUND and pay for the shipping of the opened boxes back to me.

I really am unhappy that everyone on this board is so quick to turn on me and say that I'm scamming people or that I run a shady business. There's 4 times as many people that have had great transactions with me and my site. I really flubbed this Vivisect pre-order situation up by not having enough stock to cover the pre-orders. Needless to say I've learned my lesson about pre-orders.

I'm not sure what other information I need to include on here to clear my name, but I assure you I had no intention of screwing anyone over. I merely thought you'd rather have an opened box than no box at all.

Like I said, I will fully refund your order if you send the opened boxes back. Or I'll send you out new, unopened, boxes if you send the originals back. I'm willing to work with any unhappy customer to make this confusion right.

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at atazine@gmail.com

I hope you fellow board members can see that I'm not some scammer. It really bums me out that everyone talking crap on here without just trying to resolve the situation with me. Thanks and I apologize to everyone involved.

p.s.- The release date for The Vivisect Playset WAS pushed back until Feb. 7th. You can check with StrangeCo. on that. And about the Buff Monster interview...I sent the questions to his rep and haven't received a response yet.

Well, I could fill the orders...but only with the opened boxes. I guess I wasn't thinking. I thought the customers would rather have an opened box than nothing. I screwed up on that one.

I think it would have been best for you to go to another vinyl store and purchase a case or two to send out to customers, instead of shipping open blind boxes.

Yes, that would have been a better idea. There aren't any places in Phoenix I know of that had Vivisect cases at the time, but I agree.

All I'm saying here is that I screwed up, but honestly...I had no intention of scamming anyone and it sucks that people are saying negative things without talking to me first and asking what the heck went wrong.

But I want to fix this problem.

Your stupidity probably doesn't fill a lot of people with confidence..you gotta be at the top of your game now..you have a lot of competition as a online seller these days.

Nevertheless..best of luck for the future and remember the customer comes first..

wasn't thinking is right... they ordered blind boxes! not opened packages. it would of been okay if this is what they agreed to... but not when you simply decided to make the decision for them that it would be okay. Plus i wonder how complete of a set you have... since from the few stories i was told... all were commons that were recieved...

had i of had a store, and realized this happened... i would of 1, ordered another wholesale case, as im sure these arent that hard to get ahold of, or 2 at least emailed all parties interested, and gave them the option of opened boxes, or refund in full...

but hey whatever...

for someone to claim they thought they would be alright with open boxes instead of blind box?

why not just shop at Urban outfitters?

It's by Paul Insect, called 'Love guns on gold' from his Bullion show at Lazinc last year.

It's available as a screenprint, edition of 100 signed and numbered available for £400 here: http://www.lazinc.com/artists/paulinsect/prints/236/

He also did a similar peace with the word 'PEACE' which was released through picturesonwalls.com but has sold out.

I don't know why you wouldn't fulfill the orders BEFORE opening ones for yourself...that in itself is BAD BAD business...you should just crawl into a hole and quit the business...obviously your business isn't that great to be pushing so hard for people to "trust" you here and do business with you....I think the desert air is getting to you....

Ohh man, not that I have to, but I explained this in the other thread. When I shipped all the orders that are in question, I didn't have any more cases. I order more that day. I now have more cases of blind boxes and ordered one for myself. Those are the ones on eBay, but you can think what you want.

your right you don't have to explain yourself... so why try and clear your name that you messed up...

you didnt have any more blind boxes.... so you sent the opened ones you had.... and then you ordered more cases that day....

why not wait til the new cases came in, send them BLIND BOXES!!!< WHAT THEY ORDERED!, and keep the opened ones... you just tried to get rid of your duplicate commons... SHADY... end of story.

This is the last thread that I'm going to defend myself, but I want to say.

I DID NOT INTENTIONALLY SCREW ANYONE OVER. IM EXTREMELY SORRY AND I EXCEPT THE FACT THAT NOONE WILL WANT TO ORDER FROM ME NOW. I WAS A FORGETFUL rump AND BECAUSE OF THAT I SCREWED MYSELF. BUT I MUST INSIST THAT I NEVER MEANT TO PURPOSELY SCREW ANYONE. ALL THE EBAY ITEMS IM SELLING ARE FROM THE CASE THAT I RECENTLY BOUGHT FOR MYSELF...AFTER THIS WHOLE ORDER SCANDAL WENT DOWN. SO PLEASE STOP TRYING TO POST INFO ABOUT MY EBAY ITEMS AS SOME KIND OF PROOF I SCAMMED PEOPLE...BECAUSE IT JUST ISN'T TRUTH.

IM NOT A BAD PERSON NOR A SCAMMER. I APOLOGIZE TO NO END FOR THE CONFUSION AND LIKE IVE SAID OVER AND OVER...ILL REFUND OR REPLACE ANY ORDER.

URGH, that is just not true...but it's alright. I should have waited...you're right. I stated that I was an idiot. People were e-mailing me about their shipments, so I felt that they'd like to receive a figure as soon as they could instead of wait for me to re-order. But I understand...I Duckling up. I just don't get why none of you can give up the fact that "I INTENTIONALLY SCREWED PEOPLE" You don't know me...I wouldn't do that on purpose...end of story.

I have offered to send the people who received the open boxes my chases for $5 each. I think that is fair. Even though they received open boxes, they still received the product.

If you received open blind boxes in your order of The Vivisect Playset from A Thousand Apologies.com, please PM or e-mail me your full mailing address. I'd like to mail out a few blind boxes as an apology. I know it won't change what has happened, but I'd appreciate it if you'd all let me send those out. Thanks.

well dont sit there adn tell me what i said is not true... i repeated what you said...

curse the scene wrote:
"When I shipped all the orders that are in question, I didn't have any more cases. I order more that day"

I basically made sure what he said was clear:
"you didnt have any more blind boxes.... so you sent the opened ones you had.... and then you ordered more cases that day...."

its the same thing.
