Scot Plants Direct – The Bad Penny?
Of course, Jiffygate became best known for the pathetic and childish bleatings of one Jeremy Howarth, who showed that he – and the Jiffy Group – were shallow uncaring bastards who put profit before customers. It’s all been well documented. Also, the top brass at Jiffy Group were made aware of the issues, and whilst they did spend a considerable amount of time following the saga (and my rantings on-line), they never had the balls to speak up.
At the time, I contacted Scot Plants Direct, not to request a refund nor to complain, but to ask – yes, just to ask – if they had ever encountered such mouldiness before. I received a response from P Kean (no, still not sure if it’s a Martha or Arthur) basically telling me to bugger off. However, once the emails starting flying between Jiffy HQ and Idiot Towers, P Kean decided to do what the law required (or to appear to do what the law required), and contacted me to offer a full refund. P Kean, however, wasn’t telling the truth when he/she told me I would receive a refund, and to this day I have never received further word, nor a penny of my money. It wasn’t a lot, and to be honest I became so fascinated by the shit service that the Jiffy Group was handing out that I forgot about the scoundrels at Scot Plants Direct who had lied to me.
Just today, I received a comment on my earlier post, from Paul. Now, to be honest, I know nothing about Paul; it’s the internet, so he could be a gorgeous blond with large bosoms pretending to be a gardening bloke (makes a change from gardening blokes pretending to be a gorgeous blond with large bosoms, I suppose). He wanted to know how I got on with Scot Plants Direct, because he’s had a load of failed plants off them and he’s none too happy with the way they’ve treated him.
Let me put it this way, Paul; if you receive just a small fraction of what I got from them, or if you receive tenfold what I received, or even a hundredfold what I received, then you’ll still have the same thing.
Scot Plants Direct. They lied to me and breached the Sale of Goods Act. I lost a few pounds. I learned a lesson about them. I fear that Paul might have lost a bit more.
Scot Plants Direct. Don’t forget that name.
P Kean. Not Keen. And not keen to refund your money!
