Ive place an order at a take-a-way place (Ive place my order in more thank enough time).  Due to lock down they have to deliver.  When I recieved my order it looked like I was ripped off by this business.  I phoned them on their land line and on the cell nr I've received from the to place orders.  The cellphone was offed.  We had loadshedding and I had nothing els prepared.  I felt ripped off and tricked by them and I could not resolve my query nor could they help me as they don't answer their phones.  i drove to the shop to see if I can still find them but it was closed.

I felt angry, dissipointed and cheated.  I wanter to warn other consumers in town of what they did thus I have placed my complaint on a whatsup group where people complain about the local municipaly service.  I believed that it's also a businnes, big or small.  After I placed my complaint eh admin indicated its inapproriate I must remove it and I cant blam and shambe small business.  I did as they asked and they also removed me form the group.  I did send an apologies to the business and the group today for my in appropriate complaint.  Is there anything els I must do?
