I ordered a Prince clock on December 4th, 2016 and it is now February 2017 and no clock. I did email company but was told they do not have my information.

I emailed back with my address, telephone number and date of order, but I just got an email from some guy name Vladimir stating that he received my email, but no mention of clock.

Ordered Lego clock 2 weeks before Christmas and have never received. They never answer emails and there is no other way to contact them.

  • Jan 16, 2017

I purchased a clock through this website that I found on an Instagram ad Dec 7th 2016. I received a confirmation email that same night and another one saying that it was shipped three days later. It is now Jan 15th 2017 and I have not recieved the clock and the tracking number doesn't work either. I'm extremely pissed and I hope someone finds this fraudulent company. Shut them down and give us all our money back.

Hello I ordered a PRINCE vinyl record clock from "gottahavethisnow" website. I placed the order around Decemder 2nd , and was given an order number. I can not remember what the order number was. My total came to $59.90 This email serves as a confirmation of you order from Gotta Have This Now! Please note that orders may take up to 30 days to ship. Date: December 2,2016. When I went back on the website to contact The Variety Shop you get a message stating an error has occurred. Please try later. If this matter can be resolved I would like my money put back into my account.

On 12/1/16 ordered two Beatles vinyl clocks. On 12/9/16 received e mail confirmation with USPS tracking number. When out in the tracking number in USPS tracking site no record of number found. Paid 60. 00 each and of course my credit card was charged. What can I do?

  • Dec 24, 2016

On 14 Nov 2016, I ordered "The Beatles Vinyl Record Clock" for $69.99 plus shipping and handling fee through an advertisement on Facebook. The money was deducted from my credit card right away. I received an email from The Variety Shop saying my purchase was confirmed (without an order number) and that orders may take up to 30 days to ship.

On December 8, 2016 they send me another email with a tracking number for the USPS which is not a valid number stating that my order has been shipped.

I try to contact them on 23 Dec via Facebook and they only asked for my order number that they never given me.

This is a 100% scam shop and I'm really frustating and don't know how to get my money back. And I am very furious that Facebook is allowing this kind of scam activities.

I'm wondering has anyone ever received the said product before?

I then received an email stating that it had been sent on December 6th along with a tracking number. It is now December 21st a already did do not know their contact page cannot be found

I purchased a clock online through an advertisement on Facebook. I ordered it on November 20th, 2016. The money was deducted from my account and I received an email stating that I ordered the clock but with no tracking number. It said that orders may take up to 30 days which is today. I went to the webpage on Variety Shop and when I click on contact it says no page can be found. I then looked and my bank statement which was linked to and wrote them an email. I have yet to get an email in return. Someone needs to go after these people to get all the customers money back!!!! This is not right. There add continues to be on Facebook after all these scams. If you are a lawyer please do something to help all these people, including me, that have been wronged!!!

I ordered a clock on November 14, 2016. No email conmformation was received. Checked on order today. They have no record. This company is a scam.

  • Dec 14, 2016

I ordered this item on 16 October 2016. I emailed them on the 26 November and asked to cancel the order because I had not received it and they told me they couldn't because it had already shipped but they didn't have a tracking number. It is now 13 December and I still haven't received the item, or tracking confirmation. The distance between CT and MD is not that far.

The Variety Shop solicited clocks on Facebook. I ordered one on Oct 15 via debit card. Have not received same and cannot track same and it's Dec 7.

  • Dec 6, 2016

On November 15th I clicked on a product available through a Facebook ad from The Variety Shop for two clocks made from old records. Once I ordered the two clocks, I received an email from The Variety Shop saying my purchase was confirmed from Gotta Have This Now!! Which strangely has a website: which has the same business profile as The Variety Shop, same weird lack of ability to reach out to anyone to contact them. It's now into December and packages I ordered long after this one have come in or I have tracking numbers to track their progress.

I revisited my email which has no tracking number - just a confirmation email with my billing and shipping address. I went to The Variety Shop webpage to track my order and it doesn't find my order despite using the same email the emailed the confirmation to. I wrote their FB page, replied to their confirmation email... nothing indicates there is any intention for either of these businesses to follow through on the $119.85 I paid for a Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger record wall clock and a sugar-skull record wall clock.

I saw a clock for about 60 bucks on facebook on the 9th of November and I ordered it for our son. It was acknowledged according to an email on the 10th of Novemeber. I have since not heard from them or cannot contact them. They block my calls, my emails, etc. I contacted the police as I was given the address and number of where he supposedly is.

"The Variety Shop (DBA Connecticut Painters LLC) phone number 203-710-0422. Registered address for this company 40 Mansfield Dr., NorthFord CT. 06472This scumbag has preyed on people who like the artwork of a clock made from a record.

He takes th SCAM ARTIST, THIEF, STOLE MONEY, LIAR, Northford Connecticut Internet" from someone else he scammed...

Police informed me that it is a fake address but there is a huge appartment complex near there..My guess and the police is that he is in these apartments.

I would like to contact a lawyer and see what we can do, curious if any other people who have been scammed would like to join me in the law suit?

I ordered a wall clock on November 10th, 2016..The clock was $59.95 and plus shipping came to $64.90, which was taken out of my account on November 14th, 2016..The clock (Christmas present) has not arrived and they don't answer their messages on Facebook-where I ordered it from. I paid for this with a debit card. Marcia-Okeechobee, florida

On around September 21 2016 I placed an order for a Sugar Scull Clock from the Variety Shop for about 65.00. It is now November 21st and I have still not received my order. After about 2 weeks I sent an email requesting an update on my order. They advised me that they were back logged and that i would receive an update shortyly. Well 2 months has passed by and after numerous emails (there is no number provided to call) I am still without my refund even though I requested they send me one they told me "that they could not at this time due to the order being processed already" Basically this company is a huge scam and they just steal your money. I have tons of emails from them dating back to the begining of this but its not worth posting on here cause the outcome is the same. They are a fraud. I even told them I would be reporting their company as fraudlent in as many ways as I possibly could. NEVER USE THEM you will NEVER receive your order or your money back.

  • Nov 22, 2016

I purchased a wall clock for $60 on September 8th and it is now November 21st and I still have not recieved my item. I have contacted the company via email 4 times and they respond within a day that my order is ready for shipping and I will be notified when order is sent. Never received my order. I now see that this company has been reported for the same violation towards other customers.

  • Nov 14, 2016

I purchased a clock from the variety, I waited 4 months before I actually made an attempt to find where my item was. After many attempts, I contacted my credit card company to cancel the charge. Unfortunately, this person has been paid on many purchases and I hope the credit card company goes after this person. I was lucky to find this persons phone and address. I am thankful I was reimbursed the charges, that still doesn't change the fact this person is a thief and a liar- scumbag!

  • Nov 12, 2016

I had seen this company advertising their products via facebook for sometime now. 5 weeks ago I finally found something that would be the perfect gift!! I am not one to just order from anywhere so instead of going through their page via facebook only I also googled the company and didn't see anything off. They accepted PayPal had all the Mcafee security symbols I thought all was well. After the first few weeks I thought it was odd that the item had not yet arrived but reminded myself it was being specially made and it was a very detailed item so to be patient. Then I had a death in the family flew out of state was gone for a week. I return only to turn around and leave again out of the country for a long over due vacation that had been planned for months. I've come back expecting this package however it has not arrived. I research some more and find other recent reports of fraud. Realizing I have been scammed! Complete waste of money but I am more disappointed that the product doesn't exist! It truly was the perfect gift.

Unique Greek Store & The Variety Shop have stolen my money. Claimed a gift product (vinyl clock with Alice in Wonderland design. Numerous emails with limited vague responses and no order information. Claims of payment confusion, yet my account was debited at time of transaction on October 5, 2016. Do not do business with either company. They have proven to be the lowest of humanity.

  • Nov 5, 2016

I ordered and Nightmare Before Christmas Wall Clock from The Variety Shop that was advertised on Facebook. I printed out the order and received the order confirmation via email. I noticed right away that there was no contact information and became worried and sure enough I din't receive the clock. I did find some tracking information on the web site that said that it had been shipped but no information as to how it was shipped so I actually couldn't track it to see if the shipper lost it or not. When I clicked on the contact informaiton it said that it was no longer available. It's as if they just vanished with my money and now I'm concerned that they have my credit card number and information as well.

I bought a clock from the variety shop over a month ago. They took the money but never sent the clock. I went to their website to try and find out where it was but their contact us button leads to a 404 error page. Complete SCAM

  • Oct 6, 2016

I saw the products offered by this company on Facebook and decided to purchase one of their clocks for a friend's birthday. Placed the order on 9/14/2016 and received a confirmation email hat stated a shipping email would follow. After 2 weeks I contacted the company via the confirmation email. The contact link on their website is broken. I did get a reply stating that they were having some shipping delays. At this time, the friend's birthday had passed. I requested a refund and was told that it was too late to get a refund. The refund policy on their website states that refunds are granted within 30 days. I pointed this out in my next email and they still refused to grant a refund, provide a shipping date estimate, or any other way to provide customer service. I've reported this transaction to my credit card company. It may take up to 60 days to recoup my payment.

  • Oct 3, 2016

I ordered two Peanuts Vinyl Record Wall Clocks on July 23 2016 and up to date (Oct 1, 2016), I still haven't received them. During past two months, I sent emails to them and they keep coming back saying that they have a trouble in shippment as they are very busy. I asked for cancelling the order and have my money back but they refused. It looks like this online shopping websit is cheating as there already have a few people complained they had paid but never received the goods they purchased. Please advise me if anyone have a chance or way to have their money back.

  • Sep 28, 2016

I ordered a vinyl spirited away clock from The Variety Shop on July 22, 2016. It is now September 27, 2016 and still don't have my order. Kevin Parady is the person who would respond to my emails. He always gives me vague information. Never has given me a ship date. I don't understand how come he can't provide a ship date or something. I even tried to cancel my order and requested credit and no response. Recently I have asked for an update on my order and he has not responded. They charged my card $64.00. I want my money back or my clock.

  • Sep 17, 2016

I ordered a clock from the Variety Shop on July 29, 2016. I immediately got a confirmation and my bank was charged. After a couple of weeks I replied to the confirmation email and was sent a generic email back stating that I would receive another email when my status updated. It has now been almost two months and I have not received my clock and cannot find any other contact information on this company.

  • Sep 9, 2016

I ordered an Eagles Vinyl record clock on August 9th. The money was paid on the 9th. It wasn't until the 16th did they repond to processing the order. Since then, I have tried to track the order and see what the delay is about. When I gave my order number and email address, I clicked on the link and said this page does not exist. I have been taken of approximately $65.00. I see others have been ripped off also.

  • Aug 4, 2016

I saw an ad on Facebook for a Nightmare Before Xmas clock. So I clicked the link which took me to the Variety Shop page. I purchased the clock for about $60 plus s&h. I then got a follow-up message on Facebook messenger from the company. It was letting me know that all shipping notifications will be sent through messenger and any questions can be sent through there. Two weeks went by and I still hadn't heard anything from them, so I sent them a message asking how long it takes to ship the product. There was no response. Another week goes by and I send another message asking what the update was and why no one has responded. I still got nothing. 4 weeks later I still have received nothing from them. They have also completely vanished off Facebook all together. Took my money and then just took off.
