Here is the latest in a string of companies YOU may want to business with, but I will never again.
I placed an order for an interesting-looking iPad case that will have the ability to snap on a backup battery for those days that seem to go on forever and run down the iPad’s charge.
Note the date.
The next week I decided to buy a different case so I tried to cancel the order…

Please cancel this order and refund my PayPal account. Thank you.
I never heard back.
May ended. June ended. July was about to end, and on July 29 Larry mentioned some issues people were having with the company so I wrote…
Daniel Cohen to ivySkin
I placed this order May 9th. It is now almost August. Please refund my payment IMMEDIATELY and send a confirmation that this has happened. Thank you.
My original order is listed below.
I did hear back…
We will process a refund to your account promply. Please note that we can also send you a Xylo-T4 case until the SmartCase for iPad is ready to be shipped in the first week of Aug at no charge to you. Let me know
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience we might have caused and look forward to filling your future orders in timely manner.
Best Regards, Jessica
…and I foolishly gave them another chance. After all, she said the case I actually ordered would ship the first week of August.
Note that the “replacement case was supposed to go out immediately, and the case I order would be in the first week of August…
You know what… can we do that? Especially if it is only another week or two before they will ship. Thanks.
But I heard more horror stories about IvySkin so I wrote…
I’m hearing all sorts of things about the company and false shipping labels for iPhone cases and the like. After hearing from a number of friends today I WOULD like you to cancel the order and refund my money asap.
I did not hear back.
I am waiting for a reply. Are you refunding my money or sending me the extra case now and the battery case when it comes in?
The word I am hearing from others is not good but I am hoping that your company is indeed not playing games.
Please respond asap
July ended and the first week of August passed. I did not receive my refund. I did not receive the replacement case. I did not receive the case I ordered, the one that was promised to ship the first week of August…
12 days ago you offered to either refund my money asap or to send me a different case now and the case I ordered when it was released. Neither have occurred and it has been 12 days. 12 days and I am IN NEW JERSEY.
Please do one or the other asap. This is not right and I do not understand the poor customer service.
If I do not hear back one way or the other I will file a PayPal dispute tomorrow.
I filed a PayPal dispute.
And then… surprisingly… I did hear back.
Sorry for the late reply. I’ll have them send you a Xylo-T4 case at no charge to you and will ship the SmartCase to you as soon as it comes in later this month. Once again I do apologize for the delay and please feel free to call or email me with any questions.
So the replacement case had not shipped, and now the case I ordered IN MAY was coming in at the end of the month???? I was done. Done with a capitol D. DONE, DONE, DONE!
I’ll send the case back unopened. I was told this was being done two weeks ago and the one I ordered the first week of august. Now you say the end of the month. I’m done.
I’ll send the case you sent back. Please cancel the order and refund my

So I wrote…
Please let me know when my refund is being processed and to what address I should return the case you sent. I would like to close out this transaction as soon as possible.
And wrote again…

I am asking yet again to have this order canceled and my money refunded immediately. The customer service you folks have given (or lack there of) combined with the continuing slippage in the shipment date of the case I actually ordered is not acceptable. I would like my refund now.
August 13 5:11pm
I am writing YET AGAIN asking for a response. I would like a refund now and the courtesy of someone at your company returning my emails.
This is absurd.
Then I wrote this post.
There are tons of companies making all sorts of cases. Sometimes there are production delays. Sometimes there are issues with cases. Things happen. Travis got a ElementCase Vapor. Customer service responded to both of them quickly, a replacement cases arrived in short order. Sena made changes to their Folio and solved my biggest complaint with one of my favorite cases.wooden iPhone 4 case that snapped in two the first time he used it. Larry had an issue with his
That, dear readers, was rhetorical.
Have a great weekend everyone.
