Now they have sent me something in a package that I haven't opened with an envelope that I did open--with a charge of $19.24 for whatever is in the envelope! Yes, I can send it back if I pay for the postage USPO says, because I opened the envelope which is against the rules I guess.
Anyway, has anyone else had this happen? You know when you order something from them they want your credit card number or a check right up front, so their sending me whatever and asking for payment after they sent it smells scam to me.
They must just send something out hoping suckers will pay for it. Not.
Anyone else have this experience but me
When did this rule (bolded above) become effective? I recall many years ago (at least 15) I received something I did not order and there was a bill inside the envelope which was glued to the outside of the package. I did not open the package. I just wrote "Cancel" or something like that on the bill, resealed the envelope, taped the envelope back to the package, and brought it back to the post office, telling them I was not accepting it. The post office sent it back with no objection, and the company never gave me any grief about it, either.
I mean, how are we to know we don't want the item if we don't at least open the outside envelope first?
