TNBD HALL OF SHAME
As you know, the other day we were sent an email from a member of The News Beyond Detroit about a recent transaction that ripped him off.
He above all wants to warn you all about his story.
Our friend bought from a FaceBook ad a pair of shoes from the popular & quality brand HOKA. He saw a price that was phenominal, and he pulled the trigger and purchased with his debit card online.
Fast forward to several weeks later and he was alerted that his package was “Delivered” but he had no package. He checked the tracking, and inexplicably, his package had traveled from China to California……to Hawaii, where it was delivered. But our friend doesn’t live in Hawaii. And he’s not within driving distance of Hawaii. This shipping time took a few weeks to go from one side of the Pacific to the other, and then back halfway across again. When he disputed the transaction, he was told “sorry, the customer only has a 10 day window to dispute.” He got scammed.
So if you see the company below, unless you want to be scammed, stay away from them,

This morning, TNBD did receive an email from our friend that the USPS Inspector is now looking into this troubling event. They should be able to get to the bottom of it. Here is what they sent:
