web store (Partstore.com).
The part proved to be defective and I contacted the retailer regarding the procedure to obtain and RMA and shipping instructions.
I followed the company's return procedure and repacked the part in the original plastice sleeve and cardboard shipping box.
I affixed the label and took it to the local FedEx store for shipping on 01/16/08.
Much to my surprise I received the following e-mail this afternoon:

Unfortunately, Partstore cannot accept this order back for a refund due to the fact that the part was no inside the box.

This is the most absurd email I've ever received, but wait there's more.
I emailed a reply stating that I had in fact returned the part in good faith, as per their instructions, and do not understand how they can make such a claim.
This was the reply:

Thank you for your e-mail.
We confirm at the time of pick up with the shipper, the box had no weight. Also, there was no damage done to the box during shipment. So we confirm the part has not fallen out.
Thank you for your time!

What really tops the whole thing off is the part was defective in the first place! I was really disappoited to find that any company would ship defective merchandise from the beginning. This was the first time I have ordered from this company and needless to say it will be the last.
I have never heard of such an outrageous scam!!!!
I will be contacting the office of the Ohio Attorney General concerning this shady business practice.
