Another Wire/Liar Fly Rebate Scam Victim

by tbansal / January 17, 2006 3:49 AM PST

I just filed a complaint with BBB Washington. I will also be talking with a friend of mine on class action possibilities against LiarFly. Clearly the laws of our land have not caught up on Mail-in rebate and companies like Liarfly are taking advantage of this usual time-lag in legislative reaction.

1) I am stiffed for $75. $75 is not much but it's a matter of principle. I am being told that my rebate was post-marked too late. I mailed it in late-August and LiarFly rep tells me that it was post-marked Sept 22nd! She is unwilling to provide me the proof. I was naive enough to not mail my rebate registered. BTW, they are supposed to send me a written notice of rejection, which is finally in mail post-marked Jan 11th!

2) Regardless, the rebate conditions are harder than getting a PhD in Metaphysics. For example, the rebate must be mailed after 180 days and before 210 days of purchase. I am sure there are many consumers out there who just give up tracking these dates. And these conditions were never presented at the purchase time. But I guess that'd reveal to everyone the big Scam sign.

I feel foolish to have done business with a company like this. I am certain that the system will catch up with them shortly.
