VERY ONLINE SHOPPING - Please email your complaints to one of the 'senior executive' team' as this company is unethical, unprofessional and in some ways fraudulent. VERY charge customers for items that are faulty and do not refund items that have been returned. They have a system in place that is there to con the customer and often the most vulnerable customers too. As people with plenty of money would not shop in VERY. Rest assured the Beckhams do not shop here.
In my circumstances - I returned a faulty Hoover -which VERY received back and refunded me - ( this was only after I had to go through a process of speaking to Hoover first to do some checks to verify it was faulty) Hoover verified it was faulty and then gave me a code that I had to call VERY back and give said code. This 'code' then permits VERY call agent to authorise a return and a collection... I thought that was it, job done. As it would be with any other reputable company. But oh no - VERY want to try and get any money they can out of customers so out the blue without ANY notification not via EMAIL/LETTER/TEXT/PHONECALL ( VERY had plenty of ways to contact me)
VERY re-charge this Hoover back to my statement account. VERY chose not to tell me that they decided to do this. There no written/no phone call/no text explanation as to why - Instead the Hoover charge just reappears on my statement as a current debit - together with admin charges!

A) Hoover is faulty as far as I, the customer was concerned

B) I've since bought another vacuum

C) I don't have the Hoover they are charging me for

D) Very put the re- charge on a normal monthly payment which is different to the original purchase agreement. The original was BNPL ( Buy now pay later)

Why would VERY re-charge for an item, that not only there is a discrepancy on - but not tell the customer they were doing that and why? Plus change the charge from original item method ordered which was BNPL - ' ''buy now pay later' - into a pay right now charge?

I suspect it so VERY can start to charge me interest! Hoping I would not notice it in my account. No doubt also so that they could add a late payment fee too. All my other items on account are on BNPL scheme for at least another 8 months.

Unbelievable! This Company must be avoided like the plague. Do a search online for the Very group CEO board and you will get the senior managers contact details. It is those people that need to be accountable for the way they run this business.

I have wasted an hour this morning on the phone to two agents who have not solved this mess. VERY are in the wrong to not even inform the customer a charge is being added and why that charge is being re-added. No transparency and honesty at VERY.

I will be escalating this complaint to the senior managers to get a auditable response on this scam.

Tip for consumers:
DO not use VERY
