QVC Sells your details!
This post is a little bit off at a tangent (even for me) but I was extremely annoyed to discover the way QVC treats it’s customers. Someone I know has been shopping with QVC for a number of years, but disliked giving all her account details every time she called merely to clarify information about an item or stock levels.
As a result, not being able to progress past these questions without giving some type of answer, she eventually resorted to giving a similar (but false) name. Imagine her surprise when, a few weeks later, correspondence arrived from a completely different company (Wills & Co Stockbrokers) sent to this completely fictional person invented for QVC’s benefit.
Here is a copy of the letter she received:
So, to all of you who use QVC – beware, they sell your details. Note that this is QVC UK, although I should imagine QVC USA are exactly the same.
