Vancouver WheelChair Works Ali Shamei Sold my Grandmother A used Bruno Stairlift
I am writing to provide a detailed report regarding the unauthorized sale of a used Bruno Stairlift by Ali Shamei, an authorized representative of Wheelchair Works, to my grandmother. The sale, which amounted to over 4000 CAD, raises serious concerns about Wheelchair Works’ business practices and adherence to ethical standards. The following account provides a comprehensive overview of the incident and supporting evidence obtained during my investigation.
1. Background: On [May 5th 2023], my grandma made a purchase from Wheelchair Works, who was represented by Ali Shamei, for a Bruno Stairlift. The stairlift was advertised as brand-new, and an outrageous fee of more than 4,000 CAD was demanded. I decided to do more study into the purchase because I was suspicious about it, so I got in touch with Bruno, the stairlift’s maker.
2. Orders to Cease and Desist: During our conversation with the Bruno representative, I learned that Wheelchair Works has received numerous orders to cease and desist from Bruno. These purchases cast doubt on Wheelchair Works’ commercial ethics and reputation.
3. Investigation and Verification: Wheelchair Works sent one of their specialists to check on the legitimacy of the stairlift in question in order to collect hard data. It was decisively determined through their inquiry that the stairlift sold was not new but rather had been sold to another person about two years ago.
4. Communication with Original Owner: I was able to get in touch with the original owner to find out the stairlift’s chain of custody. In their statement, they admitted that they had given the stairlift to Wheelchair Works with the obvious intent that it would be given to someone in need rather than sold for a high price.
5. Conclusions and Analysis: It is clear from the evidence gathered and the testimony given that Wheelchair Works engaged in illegal and unethical behaviour by passing off a used stairlift under fictitious circumstances. This not only takes advantage of people who need mobility assistance but also erodes the faith and hopes of kind benefactors who wanted to help those in need.
6. Recommendations: Considering the gravity of the situation, I recommend the following actions be taken to address this issue adequately:
6.1. Refund: For the unauthorised sale of the used Bruno Stairlift, Wheelchair Works must immediately give my grandma a full refund of the purchase price, in the sum of $4,000 CAD.
6.2. Ethical Practises: Wheelchair Works must establish stringent internal procedures to stop similar occurrences from happening again and to guarantee that ethical standards are strictly followed. This should involve putting in place clear procedures for given goods and meeting the demands of kind donors.
6.3. Regulatory Compliance: In order to prevent further legal repercussions, Wheelchair Works must assess and adjust its business practises in accordance with regional laws and consumer protection standards.
In conclusion, the unauthorised sale of a used Bruno stairlift by Wheelchair Works, facilitated by Ali Shamei, violated not only my grandmother’s trust and expectations but also the original owner’s intentions, who donated the item with the hope that it would be given to someone in need. The data in this analysis supports the urgent need for resolution, which includes a complete refund and the establishment of safeguards to ensure moral behaviour going forward.
I advise Wheelchair Works to distribute this report to the pertinent parties in order to start right away taking corrective measures. To stop similar instances from happening again, the culpable party should also face appropriate disciplinary action.
Please acknowledge receipt of this report and inform me of any actions taken regarding this matter. I am available for further discussion or clarification, should it be required.
Thank you for your attention to this serious matter.
