Re: poor lamb

I'll just say it is sad, if that is less offensive, when someone purchases something based on phone sales without doing any real research first.

 I think it's caused by  "The weak chicken syndrome".  I don't know if it's true or not, but I've heard that if one of their number gets weak, the rest of a chicken flock will peck it to death.

 

I don't think it's reached that point here though.

It looks like my funds are being held up in customs, and it appears to be cash!  

 

I found this in my junk mail this morning.  Talk about coincidence!!!  Smiley Tongue

I get a ton of those regarding supposed Amazon orders.  It becomes a game of "wack a scam".  Smiley Tongue

Re: poor lamb

    I talked to the poor lamb yesterday.  He cancelled his debit card, and then called Viasat and told them to come and get their equipment.

Though your friend may ultimately get away with the credit card thing and cancellation, you may want to advise him to send back the required equipment when he gets the return kit, as one thing they aren't going to do is "come and get their equipment", and he'll be in collections for it before he knows it.  

 

People need to pick their battles, and the equipment one he'll lose.  Though they may back down on the contract, they won't on the cost of the equipment.  Doing things under the table won't save him from that.
