However, I just did another search and, oh boy... There have been a lot of complaints since I ordered. There is even a thread on CN that was started a couple weeks before I order which I unfortunately missed. Apparently things have changed with the retailer and they have gone downhill, bbb.org gives them an F rating. It seems I ordered right around the same time they went off the cliff. A resourceful person could probably infer with reasonable certainty who it is, but I think it's OK at this point to reveal that it is OPT.
Thank you, I very much appreciate this info.
First off, that is a retailer I have not ordered from before. I know of OPT but never had the need to order from them, nor shall I, quite frankly, ever.
Seeing the review from BBB also would’ve told me stay away even if you never posted your dilemma and I was wanting to purchase from them. It’s not any triumph learning the name of the offender, as I’ve said, I’m not here to harm their business. It seems as though by the reviews and BBB ratings they’ve been receiving, they’re doing a good enough job on their own hurting their own reputation. I’m simply thankful that I know who they are and that I choose to take my money elsewhere as any customer has the right to do.
