Some stores would even mail you a check in the mail. People abuse the system too much. Return Fraud can be a huge problem.
The "flippers" on Slickdeals absolutely disgust me. People who have nothing better to do in life, than purposely purchase something another consumer is seeking.. for the onlypurpose of reselling it for a profit, not for consuming it!
I'm not talking about the guy who bought Halo for $60 bucks, didnt play it yet, found it somewhere else for $40 and returned his brand new, unopened copy to save $20. Im talking about people who have no intention of playing a game, but will use a credit card to buy 10 copies of the $40 game.. just to return it to a store selling it for $60 (or sell it on Ebay), so they can reap the $200 "profit". Thats not profit. That's unethical & lacking moral.
I completely understand its a free market, and capitalism will determine what an item is truly worth. But as a person looking for certain items now (AR lowers, Pmags, BCG's). Its disgusting to see these items completely sold out on every website with regular prices, but TONS of them available on Ebay and Gunbroker for triple the price. I dont care how someone else feels about these flippers.. It disgusts me. And my opinion will not change.Edited by Daekwan - 1/9/13 at 2:00pm
