I opened a new charge at Fingerhut and my first purchase was a toaster oven for $119.00. UPS never rang my doorbell and when I found it on my doorstep the box was damaged and the oven had a large dent in the top. I Emailed customer service and asked about my returning it as, I didn't feel I should have to drive to buy a new box to send it back. I receved a canned response that said, "Print out a return label and mail the item back." I again wrote back and asked what about the damaged box was I expected tp pay $6 or $7 for a new box when it wsn't my fault? Again, I received a canned response that said, "We do not supply boxes for return shipping. Please print out a label and return."

I am a senior citizen and am disabled. Do I have to drive 7 miles to buy a box to return this item. I'm angry, had I received an Email that said, "Dear Andrea" and empathized with my problem I woudn't be so angry. But, I didn't feel like anyone heard or cared about my issue. A smart customer service agent would have defused my anger by reducing my bill for at least $5.00. I am leaving this response on every complaint website I am able to and may even contact the attorney general in Fingerhut's state.
