The flowers were falling off the petals when he carried them to the car. The arrangement looked nothing like what I had ordered online (Instant Sunshine). It looked like someone had bought a bouquet on clearance at the grocery store and stuck them in a vase they had at home and delivered them.

There was no contact information for the florist on the card. In fact, the message I had wanted on the card was written sloppily and there was a word crossed out!!!

I immediately called the company and amazingly talked with a nice representative. She told me she'd investigate and call back in a week. Needless to say, I didn't get a call back. And, when I attempted to call the company, I was put on hold numerous times. I have even e-mailed them with no success.

I contacted my credit card company and they said I would not be able to get my money back because I did not attempt to return the flowers. (I live 2 hours from the city my husband received them in and there was no information for the florist)

I have reported them to the BBB and the FTC. I look forward to the day they can no longer rip anyone else off!
