    Alright ill make it short,

    - I ordered about £1000 worth of clothes before my holiday
    - Try on everything, return about 70%
    - Sent back everything week before holiday
    - No refund received, contact ASOS, spend 2-3 weeks waiting for a response
    - Come back from holiday, receive email that my query is being dealt by another department
    - Login into asos account, account has been deactivated
    - Contact asos and receive an email reading this:

    http://gyazo.com/9c486f12c841445b1ac3c5c9e7e67d47

    Now I don't really give a toss that my account has been closed but the fact that they have well over £700 of my clothes which I have returned to him, and have been paid for, for which they will not provide me a refund with but instead tell me to contact my card issuer for dispute of funds.

    Am I in the wrong here? what can I do? can someone point me to some advice? im extremely pissed off at the moment, this is almost 2 months wages gone (yes im working in min wage atm )

    You aren't in the wrong, they owe you that money. Do they have a support line where you can talk to someone? I'm guessing not if you had to wait 3 weeks for a response. It certainly wouldn't hurt to get in touch with Visa, at the very least they'll be able to give you advice on how to get your money.

    You're entitled to a refund because you didn't see the goods until you got them, whereas if you had bought this in a store, you are not entitled to one unless the item is faulty. That's the law. As above, try to speak directly to someone over the phone, and contact your bank.

    I feel sorry for you.

    Check their terms and conditions. There must be something that relates to the 'abuse' of the returns policy

    Sort things out with your card company

    CALL ASOS

    Did you return the clothes within the refund period?

    three items were not within the refund period, this is as their courier service which comes to pick up the returns did not show up and they were sorry for this as it meant I missed the refund period, they said it was ok for me to return the items anyhow, I still have the emails as proof.

    I am sick of conversing with ASOS, in these 3 weeks that I have been chasing my return I have spoken to them via live chat over 7 times

    Why on earth would you buy £1000 worth of clothes in one go?

    Anyway, you have the right to get your money back. Just keep calling them!!

    This, it's the distance selling regulations.

    £1,000 on clothes?! My car cost less than that :lol:

    Have they confirmed that they have received the items? What have you asked them over live chat? What did they say?

    I agree with everyone else about phoning them. You may not like phoning people but you can save so much time with a quick phone call.
