If you live in California and they've stiffed you, I'd file against them in small claims court in a heartbeat.
    Thanks, but I received a refund a few months ago after filing complaints with the California AG, BBB and a few others. I think I'm one of the lucky ones.

    Filing in small claims court gets you a judgment and after that (using your judgment), you have to file to obtain a writ of execution. It's up to you after that. In California, you have up to 10 years to pursue action in order to satisfy the judgment. Other states may vary.

    I wouldn't expect to get the money back. The one common thread about companies like that is that no matter what else happens, the money's gone. Always.

    I wish I had known about their problems before I ordered in June. I haven't received my material either. I was told - four to six weeks several times. Now, my credit card company says they can't help as the charge is over 60 days old. I filed with the BBB but is there anywhere else I can file? The company so longer answers their phone - just the message "your call is important to us, please hold". Ha!

    As has been stated in this thread, file complaints with the CA. Attorney General's office, even if you're not in California. The more complaints they hear the more likely they are to take action. And file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Light Impressions ship across state lines, so the Feds can go after them if they realize the size of the problem.

    Has anyone complained to the Federal Trade Commission?

    They're engaged in interstate commerce, so federal consumer protection laws apply.

    everyone should file!! against Light Impressions

    I also was taken on my order from Dec 2010!! as were hundreds of others. Numerous phone calls to Taylor Clark the Supv at Light Impressions and numerous promises of a check to come!! B S!! I have filed with the Federal Trade commission. The FTC is not allowed to compare how many complaints they recieve against one company!! How stupid is that!! I spoke to a supv there today, who told me that would be "singling out". WHAT GOOD DOES THAT DO? Apparently The BBB knows, but what action are they taking?? She recommended the State Consumer Protection division. I am appalled that this can continue with hundreds of people getting ripped off and NO ONE has the power to put a stop to this!! New Century Direct must know this and can just keep on frauding people. We all should put this on every site imaginable, think of those who do not know.
    Please any new info would be appreciated.

    I filed with the FTC , called them today and got a supv. who told me they are not allowed to look and see how many are filed against a particular company! GEEZ there hundreds of us who have been ripped off. BBB is useless it seems, I do live in Calif and will file in small claims. But that only gets me a judgement against them no $$. I will now file with State Attny General's office. Spread the word about this ruthless company.

    "Ruthless" is right. Good for you!

    I bad mouth them every chance I get which means to a lot of students, and on other websites, and a few local stores. As if that helps, don't know what a local store can do, but it makes me feel better.
