    E5P code MSEPROMO - order failure, anyone else too? 3rd Oct 19 at 12:12 PM
    I used the MSEPROMO code that was promoted last week to make an order. Order was confirmed, payment was taken, then nothing arrived for a week. Contacted their customer service, who denied any knowlege of the order despite being provided with the order number, plus proof of payment. They are now offering me a refund (yet to arrive) but no explanation for the vanished order. Did anyone else experience this? I wonder if the promo was such a good deal that they simply chose not to honour it?
    (Full customer service exchange is below - NOT impressed!)


    Subject: Order Number xxx
    This order was made 25th Sept, and payment was taken this day. I did not, however, receive a confirmation email, nor have I subsequently received a tracking number (junk email has been checked). Please confirm order has been shipped.

    Thank you kindly for contacting us.

    We are pleased to inform you that according to our payment protection provider and order system, we have no record of this transaction taking place on our side under the email address xxx.

    Whilst the bank may have authorised the transaction to proceed, due to a technical problem you experienced whilst attempting the transaction, the order was never acknowledged on our behalf.

    Please be informed that your bank will most likely resolve this issue automatically and credit your account. Depending on the bank, this may take anything from a few hours up to 7 working days.

    Please contact us for any further enquiries.

    Kind Regards,
    Customer Service

    I think your response is incorrect. After making this order, I received a confirmation screen, stating the following (I took a screengrab), so you definitely DID confirm the order:
    Your order was successful! Thank you for shopping with us.
    A copy of your order details has been sent to xxx
    Order Number is xxx
    Placed on 9/25/19 8:39 AM

    Furthermore, my account was charged immediately: I can send you a screengrab confirming this was well, if required. No refund has been made in the past 7 days.

    I do still require the order, so please go ahead and ship it immediately.
    Thank you.

    The order reference number is xxx. As per my previous email, this was on the confirmation screen (text as pasted below). I did not, however, receive the email that was promised on this confirmation screen.

    As stated in multiple emails during this exchange, this was NOT what I wanted! I wanted the order to go ahead, and I have been provided with absolutely no explanation as to why it did not! Please explain - and if possible, make the order again.
