  • Refusal to refund money

  • On 11/21/13 I made an online payment to my law a way contract at that time my first payment was not processed it came back with an error to try again so I redid my payment and it was processed and I received an email with my receipt. That day my bank account showed 2 payments were taken from my account but only one was showing up on my layaway.

    I contacted customer service and they told me to wait 2-3 days and see if it gets reversed back to my account. On day 3 I contacted my bank to verify that the payment was made to Kmart, and it was. I called back and was told that they would get my complaint to the IT department and they will get back to me in 2 days, I never heard from them so I called back.

    This time I was told that the dispute was closed and a check was mailed and I should receive it in 5-7 business days. 10 business days later and no check, big surprise. I called back again. This time I was told the dispute was closed and it wasn’t there problem, I needed to contact the store. Well the store cant do anything because its an online payment. Then they told me to dispute it with my bank but the bank can’t do anything because the payment was made to kmart like it was suppose to.

    I called again today and I was told that both payments are showing up in there system and only one was applied to my layaway account. however they can not refund my money I have to have the bank dispute the charge and then they will be happy to refund my money.

    You can bet that a complanint will be filled with the BBB and I have already cut up the rewards card and I will never shop at a kmart or sears again.
