I would immediately contact your local, Citizens Advice Bureau, local Trading Standards Office, and if necessary the Police as soon as possible.

As a matter interest, who or what shop is your 'tech guy' from?

Im not sure it got picked up from the house and took to their workshop but they did say on the phone that it had been sent to East Kilbride depot and they also said someone at the East Kilbride office had signed for it on 3rd Feb I did say well the investigation should start there but now 23 March and they still waiting on a email from East Kilbride yeah a no what a joke

01727 202120 This is the phone number of PC Worlds' Head Office - Give them a call, I am sure that your problem will be moved-along much quicker. I would complain on the telephone in the strongest possible tones!! Let them know exactly how upset you are.

Make notes of everything they say or promise to do, and tell them you are making notes.

Good luck.

Let us know how you get on.

Thanks, Gave them a call spoke to Helen who said I had been treated badly but she would have to put me through to the East Kilbride office that was at 13.34 the phone rung out till 13.39 when it cut off so I will have to put all this in writing and send it to a Director of the company and special delivery the mail It is a problem they wont win they are at fault and law on my side but thanks anyway worth a try

I would phone Helen back and tell her exactly what you are experiencing each and every time it happens - push them like hell, you could also mention that you are being advised by this forum! Also put this in writing to the Director.

"i Was also told if I didnt stop calling they would make it longer"

Someone at Head Office really should put a stop to this sort of thing. Whenever I ring a call centre these days there is a message that all calls are being recorded, it would be a very good idea if that particular company were to look in to recording all calls in each of their shops. Then if necessary they could listen back to hear what a member of staff said. Would anyone mind if their telephone call to a shop were recorded if it meant staff rudeness could be proved?
