This thread is dedicated to the businesses you have ordered from and feel others should take caution before they place an order. Now of course this has to be legitimate.As all things, please use discretion and wise words.

Some companies are legitimately not where you want to purchase. Others are legitimately ok but made a few bad mistakes and they corrected. THIS is for those that DO NOT correct their mistakes.

My advice is prior to ordering
... please do searches here, and other Dance forum message boards to see if there has been complaints. Also it is always advisable to do a Better Business Bureau inquiry.

Any other pointers anyone?

It would also be advisable to give a quick blurb as to the nature of why a place is not what you would recommend to order from. IE: placed order - never received, left messages for recovery of money -no response, etc ... DO NOT get negative and nasty. There is no need if you simply state the facts.

[Note added by ee:
Just to add to EM's sage advice please ONLY post experience that you have personally had - we are NOT a rumour or gossip forum and there are potentially legal implications.... I took the liberty of amending the title a little...

Mods: please keep a careful eye on this topic.]

BallroomDancingShoe.com

Dance Forums has some info there regarding complaints of transactions.

Placed orders - not received
Does not respond to inquires by email or phone
Returns almost impossible
On BBB with many complaints

I personally never had a problem ordering from them in the past .... however a member here did get burned and several on Dance Forums. I will NOT be ordering from them again, for sake of not wanting to tempt the fates.

The following link is to the BBBs inquiries. I am posting this based on supportive evidence.

Good topic.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Yes - but please be VERY careful.  Any critisism HAS to be backed up with hard evidence or this topic will be locked.  I don't mean to censor but there are legal implications...
