So, I was on another forum and heard that a seldom-seen extended magazine for one of my pocket pistols was on sale at ammoclip.com for only $23.00 and I decided to order one. They don't accept PayPal, only credit cards, so I placed my order. It was $31.00 with shipping.
Item arrives a week later and it appears to be a non-functional novelty item. So poorly designed it will not even lock in the mag well of either of my pistols. I'm very disappointed and decide to send it back. Only then do I notice the small print on the invoice:
"Returns will only be accepted with prior authorization." "No return authorizations by phone." "No returns of used items." "Defective items must be returned to manufacturer." But it gets even worse.
According to the RETURN POLICY on their website, a "15% restocking fee" will be applied to returned items, shipping costs are non-refundable, and if I attempt to process a chargeback they are threatening to assess a $35 "chargeback fee" and report me to a collection agency! I have never heard any shit like this before in my life! What scumbags!!!
So I filled out the online return authorization form and am waiting to hear back. I expect it will be a while. I figure that I could spend another $8 to ship this POS magazine back to them, bringing my total expenditure up to $39 in hope of maybe getting a $19 refund, which means I threw $20 away, or I can not send it back and figure I threw $31 away, or I can try a chargeback next week and see if they're bullshitting about the "chargeback fee" and lawsuit over a $31.00 charge.
I'm interested in hearing y'all's thoughts on this matter. Thanks.
