GE Money Bank, Kettering OH/Empire Today

This complaint is made to help other consumers who may consider dealing =

with GE Money Bank or Empire Today. Per an agreement through the Better =

Business Bureau, for overcharging and poor quality of workmanship on =

hardwood flooring, I was issued a $4100 refund, from Empire Today. This =

transaction had taken numerous months of poor customer service, and =

unreturned phone calls from Empire before it was finally settled. I =

had orginally financed the flooring through Empire's one year interest =

free offer, through GE Money Bank. At the time of my refund I had paid =

the balance in full, but Empire said it was their policy to issue me a =

refund by crediting my account with G E Money Bank. I was not in favor =

of this arrangement and asked how long it would take to receive my =

money and was told by Empire to give them 10-14 business days to receive =

my refund. When it did not arrive in this time frame I called GE Money =

Bank, whose customer service is located in India, making it very hard to =

communicate. The first person I talked to told me I would get my money =

in seven days. When this did not happen I again called G E Money Bank, =

and this time I was told that since it was such a large amount of money, =

it would take 30-40 days for my check. I asked them why so long since =

it was not their large amount of money, but mine. I also said I was =

sure it would not be acceptable if I owed them the money and decided not =

to send it for 30-40 days. I asked to talk to a supervisor, who was =

also very hard to understand, who also said it would be 30-40 days. I =

called a few days later and said I was not willing to wait the 30-40 =

days for my money and asked to talk to someone in the United States. =

She very rudely, told me she would transfer me to the US. This bank is =

also associated with GE products, and I was currently looking at buying =

a G E front loading washer and dryer, but after talking to the US =

customer service who treated me so rudely, I was glad that I had not =

made that purchase yet. I eventually got my money on their time frame =

but I will never again do business with Epire Today, G E Money Bank, or =

own any GE product and would advise everyone else to stay away from =

these businesses also.
