Thread: Perfect Meatloaf is a Scam

    Default Perfect Meatloaf is a Scam

    I ordered one Perfect Meatloaf Pan for $19.95 including shipping at
    $7.95 + tax plus a second order for $7.95 + tax for a total of
    $35.85. When the shipment arrived the Perfect Meatloaf company
    shipped me three sets instead of just the one set. I called customer
    service and they told me just to send back the incorrect two sets by
    what ever postal means and they would credit back my account for the
    two sets plus the shipping. The shipping cost me $10.12 per set to
    ship back by US Postal Service. Perfect Meatloaf credited my account
    for the two sets but told me to forget the postage credit. After the
    return Customer Service told me they would credit my account back for
    the two sets but not the postage. So because of their mistake in
    shipping, I had to pay $20.24 in postage. AND YES, I AM EXTREMELY
    MAD!!!

    Contact the Better Business Bureau or a local TV station that commonly
    publishes these things.

    The Perfect Meatloaf Pan might be a scam but I'm relieved to hear that
    the perfect meatloaf might be a reality. I would have just kept the pans
    but refused any additional charges to my card. You then would have had
    an extra pan to gift to your mother-in-law or anybody else that you
    really don't care that much for.

    If you paid by credit card, just contact your credit card company and
    have them do a chargeback.

    Your mistake was being nice and doing what they told you to do, at
    your own inconvenience. After you placed your courtesy call to inform
    them of their mistake, they had the option of arranging to have them
    picked up, sending you a return shipping label, or just telling you to
    keep the extra sets. In no circumstance should you be obligated to pay
    for their mistake.

    Talk to your credit card company, they'll be able to help.

    Very true! You can legally keep anything you didn't request.

    Any company worth their salt would've snail-mailed or emailed an RMA
    (Return Merchandise Authorization) label, thereby putting the return
    postage on their shoulders.

    I ordered a Victornox (Swiss Army) multi-tool on-line. When I opened the
    parcel it had six of them in different configurations. They all had the
    same number of tools. I called them up and they were thankful, it being a
    few hundred dollar goof on their part. They emailed me the RMA label that
    I printed out and taped it back on the box and called UPS for pick-up. I
    did ask if I could pick from the six for one most to my liking. They
    didn't mind one bit.

    Most likely your mistake and not theirs. Any time I have tried to order an
    "As seen on TV" item they always try to add at least one to my order. And
    the postage is never refundable.

    He probably did request it but just doesn't know. If you order over the
    phone they will always try to sell you at least one more. If you order
    online it will never allow you to order just one on something like that. He
    just probably wasn't paying attention to what he did.

    Whenever I see the "pay ONLY shipping for the 2nd item",
    I expect it to be a scam, and I skip it.

    They sell them in the "As Seen On TV" section of most stores, including
    Walgreen's. No postage and handling. I have no need of one, but next time
    you want something like that look in the stores after they've been on TV for
    awhile.

    I never order anything through one of those TV ads. However, I do
    frequently order online. If I receive "extra" of anything (and it has
    happened to me), I always call and ask for a pre-paid postage label. That
    is the only way I will return anything when it was not my mistake.
    Legitimate companies never question it, and many of them will direct the
    sender to a place online where the label can be printed on-the-spot.

    That's a great tip. I wouldn't have known if you hadn't told me, so I
    imagine the OP is just as ignorant on the subject too. Live and

    Yes. I have told Angela if she sees something on TV that she wants, she
    must wait until we can get it in the store. I really messed up when I
    ordered the worthless Snuggi. I got 4. All red.

    The thing is... On those "TV" things there will be some fine print on there
    somewhere tricking you into ordering more than you want. It has happened to
    me. They require you to put your credit card number in first. So by the
    time you click to place the order, there is nothing you can do.
