This Tuesday (19), Mauricio Takeda e Sousason of the cartoonist Maurício de Sousa, creator of Monica’s Gang, was admitted to a hospital in São Paulo after having an anxiety crisis. The young man’s malaise was triggered after he received a package containing three pots full of sand, instead of a video card worth R$14,500 that he bought on a famous shopping site.
“It’s no joke, I spent a lot of time saving up this money and when I buy it this happens. It’s very nervous, I ended up in the hospital with an anxiety crisis, I had this medical emergency today”, he said. According to the musician, he asked for the order on July 2 and, shortly after receiving the package with the wrong contents, she asked the company for a refund.
“They asked for three days, then seven working days, then another 48 hours and now another five days, it’s a joke. They really don’t give a forecast or anything to solve, they just ask for more time. That’s why I filed a lawsuit in the Small Claims Court . The most curious thing is that the sale and transport were done by Amazon itself”, he said.
Mauricio Takeda detailed his frustration at receiving the wrong order. In an interview with G1, the musician explained that he was shocked by the unusual situation. “It’s laughing so I don’t cry. I was in shock. As soon as I took the box I started to suspect because of the weight, I thought it was strange and asked my wife to film it. When I opened it I found the paper strange, the plate box was well crumpled. I opened it I was in shock, we never imagine what will happen to us, I even said ‘zick’ to my wife”, he said.
“A while ago, a coup with bricks started, especially things of high value. Damn, I couldn’t believe it, I thought I was in the business.
The company responsible for the order stated, through a note, that it has been handling the matter directly with Maurício. “Amazon.com.br is in contact with the customer to resolve the case. Amazon has a return and refund policy that protects customers who wish to return purchased products,” the company said.
