Has anyone been able to file a formal complaint against Google Nest. My google nest camera stopped working after I moved and I called to triage it. After a lengthy conversation, they were unable to do so and sent me a new one, which they asked that I pay for upfront and receive reimbursement after I return my old camera. Unfortunately, no one provided me instructions on how to send back my old device and I returned it with the Google Nest Camera Stand (which my husband had actually purchased separately).
I have now called them multiple times and they say it is under "senior support review". I have not received my $194 reimbursement although I have received confirmation that they received the camera itself and I have also not been issued a new stand or sent back my old one.
Today, similar to prior, I was told they can not provide me any updates and continues to be under "senior support review". They keep promising me a "response by Friday" every week with subsequent failure to reach that deadline. Today, I politely refused to end my call until I was provided an update or a timeline. Eventually the sales customer agent told me they were going to hang up.
This is absolutely absurd customer service. I am mortified for their company. How do I file a formal complaint against the company or escalate this rude and ridiculous customer service approach further?
Thanks for your assistance, Archie.
I've reviewed the case you shared and I can understand how you feel about this. I'd feel the same way too if that happens to me. As I've checked, the request to replace your Nest Cam Battery stand is still under review by our senior support team. To check for a follow up on this, please fill out this form to get a call back from our support team.
Thanks JT and Archie. I think apart from the fact that I have to request an update regarding this (which I will do) -- additionally the $194 charge that I paid upfront has still not been reimbursed. Another issue.
I know how you feel about this. I've cascaded this to our higher tier of support. Please keep your lines open as they may reach out to you anytime soon. Also, please be advised that this thread will be locked after 24 hours.
Thank you. I will await to hear correspondence. By saying the thread will be locked, I assume no further correspondence will be available on this thread. As a customer service note, this sends the message that you are silencing your customers, which is HIGHLY concerning.
