    So I got some letter from Four Wheeler today acting like they want me to pay for the video they sent me over a month ago, or else send it back in the the original box which has long since been tossed. What the hell? I think it should be their problem if they knowingly send me a video without me asking for it ahead of time.

    I admit I didn't read through all the stuff glued onto the side of the box. I just figured it was a promotion for the magazine or whatever. Either way, I'm gonna be pissed if they start nagging me for payment. I don't even want the video anymore, but I don't want to dig up my own box and pay shipping to send it back either.

    Ask them "since I never opened it up and all the fine print does not apply where do I send it collect?" Look up that scam in search. It was in the lounge a couple months ago. What they ared doing is illegal I believe.

    Hey feller, they sent me a video also. It kinda irritated me that they would send me something that I did not order. If you think about it, they are betting/hopeing that you will be lazy and either not call and bitch or not send it back and just pay up. It pissed off that they expected me to go though the trouble of making a trip to the post office to send it BACK when I never ordered the thing in the first place. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I hopped on the phone all revved up thinking I was really going to get into it with them as I aimed to keep the video and not pay a cent. Well, I really didn't get to fuss. The representative I was talking to on the phone apologized for any inconvienence and told me to keep the video for my trouble. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It actually was a let-down, I was all ready for a good fuss.

    This has been covered, do a search. Enjoy your video, it's illegal for them to make you pay for it.

    NRA tried doing the same thing a few yrs ago. Never returned the video, and didn't pay for it. Of course, I never watched it either. Got one from 4WOR, waiting for the same deal.

    A federal law, Title 39 of the United States Code, Section 3009, stipulates that except for free samples clearly and conspicuously marked as such, and merchandise mailed by a charitable organization soliciting contributions, the mailing of unordered merchandise constitutes an unfair method of competition and an unfair trade practice.

    The law. They know it and if you call them they will back off and say it's a free gift. They need to be sued over this. They are just emptying their wharehouse and trying ot recover money on vids they couldn't move.

    lol, you guys are silly. I just burned the disc to a DVD+R and return-shipped their original back to them using the mailer/postage that they provided for free. I thought it worked out pretty well, they got their dvd back and I got a free DVD too. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    pretty sad that the comp that ownz 4 wheeler doesn't even know the law when it comes to unsolicited mailings... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Thanks for the complement. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    They know the law fine, as someone else said, they are just getting rid of inventory. If you pay for it, great,,, if not,,,, well that's alright too. Just call them and they will just give it to you. Cool beans I reckon! /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
