Has anyone heard of the Jamal Carpet company in Mumbai? My husband bought a rug there. When it arrived (actually shipped from New York), it was not the correct rug and in fact much more cheaply made than the one in the shop. The shop appeared legitimate in every way, so we returned the rug and asked for a refund. They received the rug a week ago, and so far the money has not been refunded. Has anyone else had an experience like this with the Jamal or Bombino Express?

Thanks,
Ann

Scammed, hopefully you can recover from the credit card company. At least file a complaint with the authorities..

Did you speak with them on the phone or send a fax? I would do both, detailing what had happened & give them a refund deadline with ultimatum (re: credit card complaint, contact authorities, mumbai goonda acquaintance visitation; etc). Actually, one week is not long, 'Indian time' being considered.


is this the company?:

IndiaJAMAL CARPET INDUSTRIES. 11, LINDEN HOUSE, APPOLLO BUNDER, NEAR TAJ, Mumbai - 400001, Maharashtra, India Phone:91-22-22020399/22844216. Fax:91-22-22844216 ...

Remember the maximum length of time on credit card disputes..
