At the retail level, fraud is an unbelieveable problem.
It's something Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc, don't want to talk about.
Probably something approaching 20% of the selling price of a retail item is
destined to recover the cost of fraud.
"Fraud" is also a code word for internal theft.
If you don't have a receipt, consider yourself lucky if you get any
considerastion at all from the retail merchant.
A "gift certificate" of equal value is a bonus, IMHO.
As a reference, if you want to return something to one of my principles,
there is a minimum of a 25% restocking charge, IF they will even consider
accepting a return in the first place.
You should have had your act together when you bought the item in the first
Give me a break, quit your bloody complaining.
If you bought quality merchandise in the first place, you probably wouldn't
have to be concerned about returning it in the first place.
IMHO, Harbor Freight doesn't sell quality merchandise, and yes, I do buy
some disposable items from them, but never expect any consideration when it
comes to a return policy.
If I buy it, it's mine. Period, end of report.
Off the Rant stand.
