Ok so I ordered some batteries from tower hobbies, I noticed they were the wrong ones like 2 min after I placed the order over the phone. I called back and wanted to change them to the right ones, they told me to order two more and send the ones back I don't want, hoping to rip me off.. What kind of bullshit is this!! nothing was sent it was just a few min after I placed the order. Just saying Amazon wouldn't do me like that, they would make sure that I get what I want.. I know I will never order anything from them again. Not even the batteries I wanted!! :mad::mad:

Seems a bit odd they would want you to place a second order without changing the first order.

I was contacted by tower hobbies today and they took care of the issue. They were surprised that the person didn't want to take care of the problem as well.. I was credited for the wrong item and my second order of the right item the shipping was waved.

@Drewski - honestly, that's the first time I ever heard of that happening with Tower Hobbies, but glad to hear that they resolved it. However, the first rep may have been thinking that the first order couldn't be reversed, so was going the "refused shipment" route, which would work, but take a lot longer to go through the whole thing.

@ARRMAgeddon - You live in Hawaii, right? That's a steep shipping bill. But... You get to live in Hawaii (says a guy in MN) :D

It does sound so un-Tower-like.
They have made some errors on my orders, they're only human, but they always made good on it.
I'm sorry to hear you had a bad Tower experience.

Well...I am not to thrilled either about them...:cool:
They wanted to know everything about me...Including copies of my ID, birth certificate, bank contract and a form from my credit card company...:confused:
All digital, via unsecure email, with the reassurance that they would delete them after they had checked them...o_O:(
Because of all those credit card fraude going on..........:eek:
First time in the, say 15, years I use my credit cards online a company has asked me this...And order stuff all over the globe...:mad:
No, thank you very much......
And it was a small order to.......o_O
