Unbelievably humiliating treatment

by IsraelCustomer1 / November 27, 2012 12:55 AM PST

I am approaching you as a final alternative.

On August 31, 2012 I bought 2 Samsung TV's with full insurance at Israel.
1. UA46D5500
2. UA40D6400

Firstly, I would like to share that, as I started looking for buying a TV, Samsung was at my first priority.

Unfortunately, the UA465500 came with a couple of defects. There are thin stripes along the bottom of the screen, and the image flickers. I will recall that the TV is new with the clear plastic sheeting yet on it.

Much to my disappointment, as I was trying to solve the problem with the company that provides the insurance in Israel (SamLine.LTD) I received bad and offensive treatment from the telephone receptionist. Unbelievably, humiliating treatment to a customer!

After long time waiting, they agreed to replace the TV to 46EH5300 but refused to provide me the model I bought UA46D5500. Another suggestion was to replace the D5500 to ES6200 but they want me to add 500$ more! This is outrageous.

Needless to mention, that the D5500 is a more prestigious model which I chose carefully before buying. Moreover, the EH5300 is thicker and less exclusive.

I insist of receiving a new TV the exact model. If there is no such in stock, then a D6400 /ES6200 model, which is more close to the D5500. But, it is unthinkable to get EH5300 for the D5500.

I look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem and will wait until 14 days before seeking help from a consumer protection agency.

Unfortunately, I've got bad treatment from the Isreali customer care.
I want to approach the main team at NJ / Korea.

Please give me an email address of global samsung customer care.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
