I did not have this kind of problem with Family Tree DNA. In fact, I am
quite pleased with their service. I paid for 25 markers and got 25

Subject: [DNA] Ancestry/Relative Genetics DNA test: incomplete, inaccurate?
I have emailed Relative Genetics and Ancestry.com repeatedly asking when the code letters for four of the markers will be replaced by actual numerical results, which can then be compared to databases. They will not provide even an estimate of when the "calibration" will be complete. They just say "real soon," which does not give a warm and fuzzy feeling. When one pays close to $200 for a this 24 marker test, I think they should either provide 24 marker results or a refund. I encourage all who feel as I do to write them and demand either a deadline for the results, or a full refund. This comes close to consumer fraud. We should not have to guess that "a=10, b=11" etc like it was a Captain Midnight decoder ring from old-time radio.
