THE WORST £1500 I’VE SPENT IN MY LIFE
I would like to share the terrible experience “that I’m still living today” with you all.
Please take your time to read everything. It contains very detailed facts of an unacceptable behaviour. I hope that those people will stop lying and tricking people to buy from them.
About 6 months ago, they contacted me trying to sell me an Epos and said, “We are Epos-Direct, one of the most important Epos Company in the UK”. As I was already looking for one of those, I decided to give them a chance and booked an appointment to see a representative.
The day of the appointment came, the representative turned up. At first he seemed really friendly, but after how I had been treated, now I can say, that Aziz (the representative) was just fooling me. All his promises, were a bunch of lies, to secure the sale and the commissions.
After 6 months of arguing with a useless tech support, they still didn’t set up my epos menu properly.
A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE…… the first thing I ever told those people including repeating it to the rep. (Aziz Nurani) was, “I would like to buy an EPOS hardware and its software as a one-time payment, and not any sort of renting contract”. He said, “Yes, I will even put it on writing for you, that means you don’t need to pay any license going forward, but it will cost you £1500.” That same rep called me thrice a day during the following week, for the purpose of closing the sale.
Even though the tech support didn’t set up my menu and I’m unable to use the EPOS to its 100%, it’s already the 2nd time I’ve received a notice of renewing the license to be able to carry-on using the software, which is unfair and not at all what the representative promised me.
When I reported this to the company, a lady named Syeda, who said to be the sales manager, told me that in one of the terms of the agreement, in very small characters, they explained how the software license works and what the representative said or wrote will not matter. That sounds to me, that Epos-direct authorized their representative to lie, and if I think of getting assistance from a lawyer, that clause in the agreement is what would count.
I’ve asked to speak to a director of the company so many times, but they keep saying he is not available. According to Syeda, in 5 days, they are eligible to block my EPOS remotely and if I don’t pay, I can even throw it in the bin. A £1500 investment would be just a great waste of money.
So I appeal to all of you readers, stay far from everything that has to do with E-Novations: Emperium-Pos or Epos-Direct. I don’t wish anyone to be in my situation.
Next thing I would do, is to contact the https://www.ombudsman-services.org/ for advice, this is the last chance the director has to get in touch.
If any of you can suggest what to do or to help or had the same experience, please get in touch with me. My name is Marcello and you can reach me at 074059 64525.
