Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:There are incorrect statements made by the business I do not see an attached signed copy of the lease agreement Please provide The only documents I acknowledge signing were done in the store, as was a part of my application process, and was then charged an application fee which I paid on my debit card I was then told by SImple and the merchant that my agreement would be effective once I received my items complete and in full working conditionThey still are not I never said that I would not agree to pay Simple once my items are delivered and in full working conditionThe statement about me simply missing pillows is also a lie The merchant's own delivery person acknowledged that complete parts were not in the boxes I have sent them photos of a portion of a sectional with pillows on it I am missing an entire half of a sectional sofa with the pillowsfor example.The statement about me intentionally breaking a bed frame to avoid payments is a lie and inflammatory Again, I am not attempting to avoid payment, My dispute is with the start date, and the face they have me delinquent.My dispute is the date that Simple started payments, which they agreed (and I have the text messages) they would not start my financing until my order was correct I want the current account closed as satisfied, and a new account opened once my items are in my receipt and in full working order Sincerely, [redacted]
