Not sure what the heck is going on here.. but I think my version of comicpress is borked. All comic images are lost. For those who come here for the archives, I’ll try to see if I can figureout WTH is happening here… but it may be a while. Sorry.
Yes, that person may have a legitimate concern… but really, some companies go to great lengths to tell you when a change is being made to your service. Do yourself a favor, do more than ignore that notice when it comes into your email inbox. Skim it a little. You might save yourself a little time, perhaps even a little money.
All I can say to this one: even if they are not based in actual real conversations — there are some jokes you just can’t make up.
That’s all I’m saying.
Yeah, Techie is a bit of a prick here, I’ll admit it. Seriously, though, you’d be amazed how many people think that the BBB is a federal regulatory commission of some sort, and that they have control over the business licenses of all companies out there.
Don’t get me wrong! The BBB is a great champion of consumer advocacy, and I personally have used it to settle grievances when the controlling company wasn’t willing to work with me.
They have no power, however, other than what the consumer provides them. People can see what they say, and take action themselves. People can avoid companies with bad scores. They could even make appropriate authorities aware when there’s serious negative business practices going on…
…but they cannot close a business down. So don’t make yourself sound like a dork making the threat. Please.
Techie really covers the basics here already.
I know, especially when you’re the victim, it can be hard to trust anyone. And to be asked for the card right after the fact can be difficult. But, if you’re a victim, you should be cancelling the account anyhow.
Do the research, make sure the number you call is legit, and then work with them to deal with it. I promise you, they don’t want the fraud in their books any more than you do.
Okay… so trying something a little new this time, and I’m quite open to hearing what you think about the format.
This is going to be something of a departure for me… but I figured much of the fun of this will be to try out new things. The current challenge: take stereotypes and make them funny. Shouldn’t be too hard, right?
And yes, I used the ‘R-Word’. I know some people really don’t like that. Understand that I portrayed it in its proper negative context — the person using it is a twit. And I don’t mean pregnant goldfish, either.
