Over 1,000 Unopened Rebate Slips Found in Trash
Vastech is a small Silicon Valley firm who’s been selling USB hubs with a $3.50 rebate. Well, those rebates where found in the trash.
I’ve heard of getting denied from incorrect rebate paperwork – but to find rebates in the trash – WOW – talk about negligent behavior towards the consumer.
Although the rebate amount is small, for Vastech to disregard personal information placed on rebate forms such as; name, address, phone number, credit card receipts is not acceptable.
To correct this unbelievable act, Vastech is offering the rebate directly to the consumer – simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org and demand your money back. Although I’d expect a long, drawn out process if throwing away the original rebates are any indication of how they do business.
Fortunately, I didn’t buy a Vastech USB hub and never been burned by a rebate program – lets hope it stays that way.
