Four months later, she still has not received her purchase and has received no response from her attempts to contact the company. The client report is just one of many shared online. The company's social networks are a thermometer of the situation: comments on Instagram have been restricted and the majority of reactions on Facebook have been negative.

What does Yesko say?

The company expressed itself in a note:

We are a company from Brusquão, which has been selling its products via e-commerce and physical stores for 4 years. During this period, more than 2 million 200 thousand orders have already been sent throughout Brazil, and more than 100 thousand people access our website every day, which puts another company from Brusquão in the national spotlight, being one of the top 10 e-commerce companies. Fashion platforms in the country. We have more than 300 direct employees and more than 1,000 indirect employees, meaning thousands of families depend on the company.

Procon's decision is hasty, as it does not analyze the volume of complaints in relation to the number of orders submitted by Yeesco every day. Procon de Brusque's decision gives the company a deadline to organize some points in its work, such as obtaining clearer information about delivery dates, in addition to what already exists. So, Yeesco and the agency are talking so the points can be ironed out if necessary.

It is also worth noting that the company operates as a physical and online seller, which means a chain of suppliers and service providers, such as transport companies, suppliers of raw materials, outsourcing services for all areas, and in a large part of the complaints, occur not the fault of Yeesco, but since the company She's the one doing the selling, so she ends up being the focus of the complaint.
