I guess everybody else knew not to do this, but I learned the hard
way. Needed a new answering machine (actually didn't; just wanted one
with more room for incoming message). Looked on-line; found most
recommendations for low-end AT&T model, just what I wanted.
Ordered it from a place called "On-Line Fulfillment". $37.95,"free"
shipping. When it arrived, was defective. Called them for a return
Hah! That's how they get suckers like me.
1. They will deduct their original shipping cost
2. Plus they deduct 15% for return.
3. I pay return shipping - $8.++ plus hassle of repacking.
Will end up, if lucky, with the same amount that AT&T charges on their
site - $19.95! Live and learn...
Looked around the Web, found that this is one of a number of such
enterprises in an industrial-looking area of NY? or was it NJ? .
Manufacturer outsources ordering/shipping to these outfits -- tons of
