Please hold as we route your chat to an Adobe Representative.
Welcome to Adobe.com! My name is Carol. May I assist you with your selection today?
Carol: Hi, How are you doing today?
Ann: At this point a little on the cranky side.
Ann: I would like to place a complaint
Ann: are you still here?
Carol: Ann, I'm sorry to hear that, since I'm online with you let me help you with any information you need.
Carol: Also I'm sorry for the delay.
Carol: Please go ahead, how can I assist you?
Ann: I was told by one of your people +36204 that you might not be able to assist, but I will run it by you anyway. The angering part is that she didn't follow-up with an email as promised, and then I had to wait 53 minutes and I got the same person, and then she hung-up on me, and now we are here ... the problem OTHERWISE is ...
Carol: Ann, was it on call or was it on chat?
Ann: I purchased an Adobe Captivate about one month ago, because it was the best I could do in that I wanted REALLY the Adobe e-learning 6 suite, but I was told by customer service they had no idea when it was coming out. Because there was no time limit ... I took the adobe captivate by itself for about $300 and then the next few days later the new product came out ... I want the new e-learning but I think I should have $300 off because I'm duplicating the Captivate ... AND the woman - she was a call then stated that there was student pricing for e-learning and that it was $599 ... I did a LOT of research and KNEW it wasn't a student price. She asked for proof ... I know have that proof
Ann: I'm on disabilty ... I'm trying to work my way up in school. And, I don't have enough money to support a terrible program if you are not able to work with me. THIS is why I want to register a formal complaint
Carol: Ann, I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
Ann: are you still responding
Carol: I'm here, checking an option with my supervisor.
Ann: thank you
Carol: Ann, thank you for staying online.
Ann: I waited last time on phone for 53 minutes to be hung-up on ... I can wait a little longer
Carol: I understand your concern. I checked and see that you can register a formal complaint in the forum where all issue are discussed with us.
Carol: I'll provide you a link where you can login and check the details.
Carol: Please click here.
Ann: This then seems like the process for reporting a problem. Fine I will use the resource, what about the problem of overpaying for a duplicate program?
Carol: Ann, I request you to check with our customer service team at 1-800-833-6687 from Monday to Friday 5:00 am to 7:00 pm PST.
Carol: They'll check and help you with necessary information on that.
Ann: THAT is the ONE who GAVE me the OTHER problem!
Carol: I'm sorry to hear that.
Ann: I know if I call that number and ask for that option I will get hung-up on like the last time ... I have no guarantee it will happen any differently or the same person wouldn't pick-up and connect me to the right people
Ann: If you are sales, why can't you help me with a sales querie?
Carol: Ann, I'm from online sales chat support team and I do not have an access to your previous purchase nor I can issue any refund or difference amount which you've paid earlier.
Carol: *for the software earlier.
Carol: I can only guide our customer to choose correct product of their needs and guide them through order process by providing a link being from online sales chat support team.
Ann: please give me the link I need for refund of product.
Carol: As per Adobe return policy our customer who has purchased Adobe product can return product for refund only within 30 days. If you've exceeded the return time frame you'll not be eligible for refund.
Ann: Oh Lordy.
Ann: You are in my disfavor ... you are following your process, but you have NOT been helpful
Carol: I'm trying my best to help you with a resolution.
Carol: Could you please tell me when did you buy the product?
Ann: Is there anything you can help me with other than lying down a total of $599 when I've already paid $300?
Ann: July 16, 2012. Obviously I hadn't been aware of a 30 day policy ... I was too angry and frustrated to even look at your site. I turned from a position of Oh my Gosh I love this company ... to I hope never to work with them again
Ann: It's a bad policy arrangement to not tell customers who ask directly that the new product is going to launch 2-3 days later ... It's a bad policy decision to not give them ANY kind of date to assess reasonable wait time
Ann: Obviously, people in the company knew it was going to be released
Carol: I understand. I apologize on behalf of our representatives who misguided you with the wrong information on your previous chat.
Carol: Ann, I wish I could issue a coupon or discount or initiate a refund on this live chat, however, we do not have an access. I'm really sorry for that.
Carol: Once you contact our customer service team on phone they'll guide you and help you with alternate solution to resolve this issue.
Ann: your customer service person stated she was going to send a contact information ... and she did not.
Ann: what kind of alternate solution is that?
Ann: I do appreciate you can see that I'm very frustrated
Ann: the second time I contacted her she hung up ... why do you think giving me an option of calling her a third time would be a good decision?
Carol: I understand how frustrating it would be, however, I'd like you to try once more. You might get connected with our other representatives who will help you to resolve this issue.
Ann: How would you like to end this conversation we are having? It is circular and unhelpful ... I've not gone any distance further, but to be more frustrated at you telling me to do what already has proven not to work.
Carol: Ann, I wish I could help you on this chat, however, I'm helpless at this moment since we don't have any access on this chat being a sales representative.
Carol: Your issue will be resolved only by contacting our customer service team.
Ann: Thank you for your service ... though I don't find you to be obviously very customer orientated.
Carol: Ann, I can provide you a link to chat with our customer service team too.
Carol: Please click here.
Your chat transcript will be sent to [email address removed by host] at the end of your chat.
Carol: Thank you for visiting Adobe.com. Have a great day!
