Best Buy Intuitive Way To Scam Buyer Internet
I ordered A Sony-VA10 14" Touch-Screen Laptop online from Best Buy for $718.19 which was to be picked up at a local store in my hometown. I cancelled the order via phone and told Customer Service I would not pick it up. Customer Service said it would refund my credit card.
With my receipt was a download link for a 1-year subscription for Kaspersky Internet Security (2013) that I did not order. The receipt included a download link for the antivirus.
A few days later my credit card was refunded the amount of $664.20 which was $53.99 less than the charge. I called Customer Service to get an explanation why the full amount was not refunded. The agent said it was to pay for the Kaspersky subscription.
I told the agent that I never ordered this antivirus, I had my own installed, I never downloaded the "free" Kaspersky version, and wanted a full refund.
The agent put me in contact with Kaspersky Customer Service who agreed to refund the $53.99 after 30 days.
Best Buy's advertised price for the laptop was$718.19 with nothing mentioned that this price included $53.99 for a 1-year subscription for Kaspersky Internet Security (2013). Whithout doubt, Best Buy would have received a kick-back from Kaspersky for this sale. Iff this does not fit the basic definition of a scam and gouging, nothing does.
