Member says home and hearth company took deposit
I paid Cal Custom Hearth & Home of Riverside, Calif., $60 as a deposit on a future purchase. I received a guaranteed fixed price for fire glass, but the owner said if I didn’t purchase the glass, I could put the deposit toward anything else.
When I became ready to purchase fire glass, I found it cheaper elsewhere, but he didn’t believe me. I asked him to send $60 worth of fire glass, minus any tax and shipping charges.
He said he needed to write it down, but didn’t have a pen, so he asked me to call back that night. I called later, and no one answered. He doesn’t respond to voicemails or emails.
I want a $60 refund.

Have a complaint?
Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to mediate disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
