FYI: Web scams spin-off

Sorry this is a boring post!  An Alaska adventure is coming up which should make for fun reading when I get back.

While I’ve found exploring web-scams to be quite intriguing, you might prefer more variety in your reading.  So I’ve moved those posts to my new blog Web Scammer Jammer that’s dedicated to exposing web scams.  But I’m leaving copies of my LUX HD450 phone lens posts here in Travels, Tinkering and Thoughts, because they’re linked to a Facebook page that’s helped a lot of people avoid that scam.

    YOU TOOTH AND NAIL ON REFUNDS. I CANCELLED LESS THAN 5 MINUTES AFTER RECEIVING A CONFIRMATION & ASKED THEM NOT TO SHIP. CONTACTED MY BANK AND SAW THEY HAD ALREADY CHARGED ITEM AND HAD BANK DISPUTE IT. THEY DID BUT COMPANY SAID TO DROP THE DISPUTE AND THEY WOULD CREDIT ME,WHY WOULD i DO THAT. mY BANK CONTACTED THEIR BANK AND THE CO. SENT THE PKG. ANYWAY WHICH I REFUSED AND SENT BACK. i MUST HAVE 20 EMAILS TO THEM ABOUT THIS AND STILL THEY DO NOT WANT TO RELINQUISH MY MONEY. NO WAY TO RUN A BUSINESS…YOU MAY NEVER SEE YOUR MONEY AGAIN.

    We have searched our records and have found no request via email for cancellation prior to the one received 08/03/16.

    We would love for you to keep our product and would like to extend a discount on the price. We can do a one time exception and drop the price to $87.00 for the total of 5 Lux HD 450 sets. The three sets at $29.00 instead of $56.00 as was the original cost. Please let us know if you would like to accept this one-time offer. ..

    If you still intend to cancel your order then once you receive your shipment, please refuse it or label the unopened package as “return to sender” and leave it at your nearest post office. Once the shipment is received and processed at our facilities, a refund will be issued as requested. However, to expedite the refund process, please provide the tracking information. If you have any questions, feel free to respond to this email or call Customer Service. Thank you.

    please cancel the order I said that right off the bat
    maybe I misread the advertisement but I would only want 1 at $29.00
    If I cancel the order I would not pay anything;
    thanks for the discount but no thanks.
    you should have answered one of my emails sooner and avoided all this fuss.
