Entitlement

Toys For Tots #1614601
The sense of entitlement has now reached epidemic proportions in this country. It is impossible to watch local news without some story about some do-good organization wanting me to donate food, toys, coats, boots, backpacks and a myriad of other "necessary" items "for the poor." The best thing to do is to not give to anyone. When you give to any organization, do you really know where your money or goods go? Are you sure? Everything is a scam.

Terrible Customer Service

Amazon #1614595
Sounds like a problem with your payment method, eg., credit or debit card method. Perhaps there is a problem with this altho you are rather circumspect in why, exactly your account is "on hold." For what reason? There is a reason code for this and Amazon should have told you the reason for the hold.

Constant Buffering Headache

Roku #1614591
Constant buffering usually indicates a slow internet connection. You don't say which internet service you have, but for the most reliable streaming cable internet, eg., Spectrum is the best bet. DSL or satellite or other non-cable services will cause streaming headaches, especially when tied to a system like Roku. I dumped cable TV a few years ago and now stream via a couple of Roku units plus stream direct to the telly or simply download the shows and then view via a flash drive on the telly. The Roku units can be finicky but do work well with a good internet connection. They don't do well with a slow one. You might want to find out what download speed you are getting with your internet connection. Simply go to "speedtest.net" on your computer and do a speed test to see what you are getting. Anything less than 25mps download is no good and you will get constant buffering. From 25-50 mps is still problematical. In my case, with Spectrum, I get a usual 94 mps or better. You probably bought the Roku Ultra for about 50 dollars. I picked one up as a spare but still use older models with rarely a problem.

Scammers

Suburban Propane #1614434
Are we talking about fuel oil or propane? Perhaps it matters little, but in either case, just because a tank's capacity is 275 gallons doesn't mean they fill it to the brim up to the 275 gallon capacity. They always leave an empty space of so many percent for expansion. The company supplying the fuel can tell you what that percentage is. Also, since we taxpayers are helping to pay to keep you warm and comfy it really bothers us not that you cannot get another freebie for more fuel until another two weeks. Wear a jacket both inside and outside the abode until then. A "thank you for supporting me" would be welcomed.

Worst Customer Service

Verizon Wireless #1614427
Sounds like you failed to pay your bill and, for some reason thought Verizon should just allow you to not pay it on time---thus the comment by the Verizon rep about her not having problems like that because she pays her bill on time. She was pointing out the obvious and it certainly is not anyone's problem but one you made yourself. Stop blaming others for something you alone are responsible for.

Checking Accounts

Pnc Bank #1614426
Checking accounts come with restrictions and other requirements, one of which is that in order to get a "no fee" checking account you need to keep a minimum monthly balance determined by the bank. This fee is disclosed to you either at the time you open the account or in writing by the bank at a later time if the terms change in writing, usually on your monthly statement. It appears you failed to look at your monthly statements for quite some time and didn't notice they were charging you a minimum balance fee for many months. Don't blame PNC for your lack of awareness if you didn't bother to look at your monthly statements. It is what it is. Close out your accounts with PNC and go to a bank or credit union that will give you free checking. Credit unions usually offer free checking and, from the lack of your use of it, could be a viable alternative to a bank.

Wrong plug, no response from PayPal

PayPal #1614007
Your initial mistake was in answering an ad on Facebook. Not a good idea to trust any ad on any social media site. Period. The plug you received looks like a "type C" plug used in various European countries. You can buy an adapter plug to make it usable in the US as long as you verify it is not for a 220v or other system and is for our 115v. You can probably also buy a converter to make it usable in the US but then you are going to pay more money for something that probably doesn't cost what a converter will cost. Bottom line, re-evaluate your shopping from ads on social media, and dump PayPal and go to a real bank with a checking and savings account and also a credit card----never a debit card, of course as they are extremely dangerous.

It does no good to say "shame" on Walmart. They really don't care. They may anger a few or many people, but they keep getting the business from those who have yet to run across Walmart's terrible customer service and think all is hunky-dory.

GoBank Mastercard debit SCAM

Gobank #1614001
Probably not a very good idea to get a debit card from a company like Walmart---they have terrible customer service and it appears they have hired a debit card company with the same terrible degree of customer service. Dial the number on the back of the card but instead of entering your card number, wait for the recording to eventually say something like "hold for an operator, or customer service person" etc. Usually, with most of these stupid recordings if you don't answer correctly for awhile, they will transfer you to a real, live person. Hope for someone who actually speaks and understands the English language! Clear up whatever is the problem and then cancel the card ASAP and get a CREDIT card from another company or bank---not a debit card. They are extremely dangerous if hacked, lost or used inappropriately.

It may look "cracked" to you, but from the photo you attached, it shows nothing of the sort. Not saying there isn't something wrong with it, but we cannot see anything wrong---just a picture of some blurry guy/gal taking a flash photo. However, you bought a cheap, unreliable telly, probably from a big box store like Walmart and expected years of service from it. Those cheap sets like Element, HiSense and others are not even worth the price they sell for. Dump your set and buy a name brand telly like a Panasonic for a few dollars more and it should work for many years. Now you know.

Go online to your card's website and check your activity to see if there are any unauthorized charges. You do this regularly, don't you? Then, if you seem to have really lost the card, call the card issuer or go online to report the card as lost. They will replace the card with a new one, etc. Don't worry about trying to contact the place you think you lost it---it is no longer safe to retain that account anyway.

Mispricing

Walmart #1613625
Nothing new about Walmart's pricing being a major scam in progress. Walmart often fails to post a price anywhere near the products or make a price readable by those not of midget height and too often to be a mistake will have a higher price ring up as in your example. This is why, not only for Walmart but for any store that scans items you need to watch carefully as each item is scanned to ensure the correct price is ringing up. In Walmart's case, an added measure they do to confuse customers is to have a delay between the time the item is scanned and when it appears on the display so you don't know what price scanned for which item. All in all, Walmart is really not to be trusted to be honest in it's pricing. There are other stores in most towns.

Cashier Rude and disrespectful to Customer

Meijer #1613622
Meijer in my area has eliminated the manned express lane and gone to the self checkout things. Of course, the geniuses at corporate still cannot figure out they rarely have enough open lanes to accommodate the number of customers waiting in line. They apparently don't care if people wait like cattle to check out. However, back when they did have a manned express lane, the cashiers would tell us, when asked that they were not allowed to turn someone away because they had more than the 12 items in their cart. That being said, complaining that a cashier is rude because you cannot read the sign saying "12 items or less" is rather an affront to those of us who have that thing called common sense. The cashier was quite correct in pointing out the rules and refusing to check you out ahead of those who actually can read.

Customer Service & Delivery

Amazon #1613082
Amazon's once-vaunted delivery service is now a mere shadow of what it was. They rely on delivery companies like FedEx and others to make the deliveries in the time-frame as promised, but the newest scam is for companies like FedEx to ship your package via something they call "FedEx Smartpost." This means your package will be delivered by FedEx to your local post office, who then promises to deliver it on time---which is problematical, given the inefficiency and unreliability of the post office. It is now a good idea to not rely on Amazon being able to deliver packages as promised. You can check the tracking of your package on Amazon and see if it was transferred to the post office(USPS) for delivery but be aware that the geniuses at the post office will often label the package as "delivered" when it hits their office altho it has not been delivered. Or, as in my area, they will deliver your package to some stranger down the street. Shoppers might want to re-evaluate their paying over a hundred dollars a year for Amazon Prime. It is fast becoming something of a joke---if not an outright scam.

Very odd and confusing, to say the least. If, after 36 hours you haven't received it, contact Amazon and request either a replacement for the "lost" package or a refund/credit to your credit card-----you did use a credit and not a debit card, didn't you? If you don't receive a good response or action on the part of Amazon, dispute the charge with your card company, but wait to see what Amazon does.

Received notice today that my Kiplinger's subscription was about to expire

Kiplinger #1611726
Magazines always want you to re-subscribe at a high rate and tend to send you special renewal rates, etc. soon after you renew. In your case, go to the Kiplinger website and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click on the "customer service/contact us" link. From there you can check the status of your subscription and see if your payment was received. Looks like your check and the renewal notice crossed in the mail. For your info, it is usually never a good deal to renew from the renewal notice you receive from the magazine as that rate is far too high. For example, Entertainment Weekly sends a renewal notice for a one year sub for $45. If you go to their website, you can get a new sub for $20 for one year or $29 for two years. The only downside is that they do the "automatic renewal" scam and require a credit or debit card online. Let your sub run out and they will send you an offer of a new sub for a much lower rate than if you renewed while still an active subscriber. The other scam magazines like to pull, like Consumer Reports, is to send you an old issue to start the sub, even tho you may have used the subscription card in that issue. Tricky.

Are you sure it was FedEx and not the post office who delivered the package? FedEx is now using something they call SmartPost where they deliver packages to the local post office who then delivers to you. The problem is that the post office is rather inept at this and, from personal experience more often than not cannot seem to read the addressee label correctly and thus delivers to "someone." Try locating the person it is addressed to and call them, or just deliver it to them as the courteous thing to do. Bad deliveries happen often in my town by the post office.

If you go to each item or order's tracking at Amazon you can find out who was supposed to deliver the packages. Odds are, that the USPS was involved as the end delivery agent. Amazon and FedEx, in my experience are both using the post office to deliver packages. The problem is that the post office is rather inept and labels packages as delivered when they are not; delivers a day or two after it gives a delivered time and date; or delivers to someone else. Contact Amazon and tell them the package(s) were not delivered to you and request either a re-shipment or refund. Their site says to wait 36 hours to do this, indicating they know there is a problem with the post office delivering their packages.

Prime shipping is a joke

Amazon #1610009
Amazon's once-vaunted two day shipping is fast becoming a joke. The reason seems to be the methods they now use, in order to cut costs, to deliver your packages. They may send a package FedEx but FedEx will send it out via their "Smart Post" which means it is delivered to the local post office who then delivers it, maybe the same day or often not. Or, the post office will deliver your package to some stranger somewhere down the street but claim it was delivered(to you). All in all, the best thing to do is not rely on Amazon's two day delivery claim and also start shopping online at places that don't use unreliable delivery methods like FedEx Smart Post. I believe UPS may have started something like that, but I haven't see it personally.

It is an interesting idea and certainly saves FedEx money because they can rely on the post office to deliver instead of a FedEx employee. The theory is good, but it fails miserably in many cases due to the USPS not being reliable---they don't deliver the package the day it arrives at the post office, or in many cases in my area the postal carrier delivers it to a house down the street or who-knows-where instead of to me. When you track it, it says "delivered" but to who? Best to try to not buy from any company that uses FedEx Smart Post unless you want your packages to be late or delivered to some stranger.
