I bought a Kirby vacuum from a house to house salesman worth 2,500.00 to be paid in installments during three years. I was refusing to buy the vacuum but the young man kept insisting in different ways that we buy it, until we finally agreed. I put away the vacuum and never used it again and after two weeks of thinking the matter and being worried about the price and the payments, my son in law called the company to tell them I didn't need the vacuum and I didn't want it. They said they would respond later and after a week or so, they sent me a letter denying the devolution of the vacuum.
I called them again and told them I didn't want it and they denied it again; I called a costumer service office in Ohio and they said the same thing saying that I had only three days to cancel the operation or if I was 67 years old by the day we signed the contract
, but I'll be 67 in two months. I've been reading a little to find a way to cancel this agreement the reality of things being that my husband and I are unemployed and don't even own a house. Yes, I know what you are thinking, it was a foolish thing to do but I felt sorry for the guy, who wanted to cry when I told him that I didn't want to buy his product.
I read about Title
16 CFR Part 429.2 and even told consumer service about part 429.2 but they didn't seem to care. They were very rude and didn't seem to care about the fact the I didn't want the vacuum. By the way I went to check vacuums at Home Depot and they are an average of $100.00, so I could buy 25 vacuums instead of one for $2,500.00.
Please advice me what I can do; so far people have given some bad advice but I don't want to ruin my credit. Thanks!
