Highly illegal, highly immoral. DON'T waste your time (money, resources, energy, etc!!!)

We are in dispute with Protek Industries regarding a transaction made on September 7, 2010. On this date, a representative from Protek Industries came to my home to assess and provide a quotation for the repair of our Maytag dishwasher. Maytag/Whirlpool Customer Service recommended Protek Industries as an authorized service agency. As of today, September 28, 2010, the parts have not been delivered and the repair has not been performed On September 7, 2010, the Protek representative determined that a two-item latch assembly kit was necessary, and I was requested to provide a deposit in the amount of $110.00. I was told that the parts were ordered, and was given an estimated delivery time of 5-7 days. I requested a receipt for my deposit, but was informed by Ron, the Protek serviceman, that Protek conducted all billing and accounting matters electronically and that a receipt would be emailed to me immediately from their main office. I did not, however, receive my receipt immediately or by the end of the business day, but neglected to immediately follow up with Protek. By September 12, 2010, seven days after the serviceman had taken my deposit and ordered the part, neither receipt nor latch assembly kit had been provided to me. Due to this failure to provide the promised service, I contacted Jenny of Protek on Friday, September 17, 2010. She said that the part had not arrived and the receipt would be emailed to me that day. The following Monday, September 20, 2010, I called Protek again, because I still had not received the receipt or any information regarding the ordered part. Several attempts were made by me that day to contact Protek with no avail. Late afternoon on September 20, I managed to get in contact with Jenny at Protek and requested a refund of my deposit; she said that all that they would give me back was $30 for the part less the $80 for the service call. A call to Maytag/Whirlpool Customer Service the following day resulted in Proteks eventual emailing of the receipt to us; but a refusal by them to deliver the part to us, a charge to us for a restocking fee, no refund of our deposit, and a refusal to complete the service. A review of the receipt/invoice will show that the refund amounts quoted by Protek are inconsistent with the charges invoiced. I have since contacted the Better Business Bureau and was informed that Protek received an F rating and that the type of tactics that they were employing on me had been employed on other customers. These tactics include obtaining deposits for parts and failure to provide promised service or part, delay in completion of service, improper or inferior repair, unsatisfactory customer service, and unavailability of customer service. I took Protek to small claims and won. When I went to go cash the check, per court order, I was informed that Protek had cleared out their bank account.

Protek Industries of Reno,NV

BBB rating is "F" I had the company come out to repair my refrigerator, came out replaced wrong part. Not once but twice. Then said they would not come out again. Promised a refund, month gone by no refund yet. Taking them to small claims court now... As that they have had 14 complaint issues in 2 yrs and that promised refunds went unpaid. One excuse after another. Choose another company for appliance repair. I chose them per phone book advertisement, thinking a big company, nope wrong only 1 serviceman, who doesn't know what he's doing, obviously. always check with BBB 1st, before getting ripped off.I'm out $150 food spoilage after the repair, 47 days no working unit as couldn't afford another service call/company after them holding my money of $246. Finally had repair done for $100 less than their charges, taking payments per the situation.
