After dealing with Target India and now Amazon India, I have decided to not shop either if I can possibly avoid it and I think I can. SO tired of getting a rep with a false name "John" or "Mary" whose English is barely understandable. I mean, I already have an issue and then on top of that, I cannot understand the customer service rep and they cannot understand me.

So, who are the best bets for shopping similar items and actually dealing with someone I can understand? I have mostly already replaced Amazon items by using VitaCost and am more pleased across the board with them. Does Wal-Mart use foreign customer service? I have started using them for other items previously bought through Amazon. Even before having to deal with Amazon "India", they had been on the down slide.

I try to shop for American made products whenever I can. I feel it is important to keep OUR dollars at home when we can. I find it SO deceptive that they use common American names to try to fool us!!!

So, who keeps American jobs here when it comes to customer service. Also, need to know if any cell phone providers use American workers. Thanks!
