Shana Lowry
Classic Clocks & Watches
1604 East 4th Street
Reno, NV 89 507

Dear Ms. Lowry:
On May l, I placed an order for 500 EFSUO clocks to present to our top customers. On May 15, I called Classic Clocks & Watches to check on the order. We were scheduled to begin distributing the clocks on June 15 and I wanted to confirm that we would have the clocks at our offices well in advance of that date. The customer service representative told me that she had no order from Audioview. I faxed a copy of the order to her and she told me that she would call me back with an answer. She never returned the call.

The clocks did not arrive until August 1. This customer service was the worst that I have ever experienced. I was given one excuse after another. My manager has lost confidence in my ability to complete a project. I can't tell you how disappointed I am with your company. The clocks were paid for in advance, so I can t tell you that I refuse to pay for them. Instead I am asking for a substantial discount. You may contact me at Audioview, 1-800-555-1456. I will call you if I have not heard from you by August 14.
Sincerely,
Nancy Iskander
Nancy Iskander
