Hello forum members,
Today I have a report.Ted Ciamillo finally refunded the money to me!
It was too long time but money is back.
It needed for a month to refund.
How do you know that you can refund only clicking through PayPal?
Ted Ciamillo, the man needed a month time for such thing.
He is amazing man, this is correct.
So... Stephen said me that I should write down about my experience with Ciamillo.
Ok, I'd write the things for this forum and for prevention of damage continue to spread by Ciamillo.
I sent him an E-mail and received reply on the same date.
He promised to make special crankset which can attach Vista Integral pedal unit
only 100$ upcharge.
I ordered the cranks officialy.
I will get an invoice over to you this evening
I asked him a question why he could answer so quickly about compatibility with Vista pedals.
The pedals are very unique parts, so I thought maybe he was also a user of Vista cranks.
He didn't answer this.
(Also this time, I sent him a photo of Vista pedals because perhaps he didn't know the pedals.)
He didn't send me an invoice so I E-mail to him again.
He sent me this ludic sentences.
Are you ready to move forward with your order.
I will need to know the thread size of your pedals.
I sent him an answer about his previous E-mail.
He didn't send me any reply.
I E-mailed him.
He asked me that he wanted to see the Vista crankset for a standard
I felt this is little strange because he have said me he can make the special crankset though he didn't know the crank and pedals.
I sent him 2 set of Vista Integral crankset.
He have received my parcell and sent me a message.
He have said even he didn't know the Vista pedals
He said me that he want more pay, plus 500$ for it.
To tell the truth, I lost most of my motivation to buy the cranks at this time because already it needed too long time and his response was too bad.
But I had a plan to participate in our bicycle event on 16, August.
I thought there was a value if he would be able to get the cranks ready for the event.
So I told him this thing about the event and asked whether he could make the cranks until the event.
And also I told him that there was no mean if he would not keep the date of delivery.
I promissed him the date and I would pay the extra cost, 500$ if he would really keep it.
So the first invoice was decided to 1100$.He answered me what he would be able to make it only a month!
So he was supporsed to make the cranks untill July would come
He sent me this.
Sorry for the delay. I have your set going out this week.
I have been busy working on a revision to increase the stiffness so that we have the highest stiffness to weight ratio of any crank on the market.
I will have tracking info for you in the upcoming week.
He didn't send me tracking number.
So I mailed him to inform the nums.
I slightly felt that he told me a lie.
So I mailed him that I would demand to freeze his bank account through PayPal if he didn't send me the product.
He suddenly sent me this.
All you had to do was request a refund.
I will be refunding your money this week and sending your pedal back to you.
I told him that just sent the things or acknowledge he told lie.
He sent me this funny sentences.
The crankset is made but there are assembly and checking procedures to complete.
If you want this custom crankset you need to stop with the threats.
I am happy to refund your money at anytime and send your pedal back to you.
This is a custom project and there are delays which are out of my control.
If you are not happy with waiting, simply ask for your money back and I will return it.
Even if I wait him or not, I needed to certain of he said me a correct thing that is whether he was really making my cranks or not.
So I demanded him to take the pics of the making cranks
I decided to cancel the cranks.
I sent him a mail to demand refund.
Replied toooooooo quickly from him.
we will refund you by Friday and get your crank back right away.
Sorry for the problems.
He didn't refund to me.
Claimed to him.
I processed adding funds to the Paypal account last Friday.
I will be able to make the transfer as soon as it is available.
Ofcourse this is a lie.
I couldn't confirm any refunding action on my PayPal account.
I am working on getting refunded.
Please give me until the end of the week.
Told lie as breathing.
Today, finally refunded.But he didn't return my 2 cranksets yet
