Microtek USA Rebate not honored Ripoff Carson California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I purchased a Microtek scanner that had a rebate. I sent in all the necessary and required information for the rebate. Some time later, I got a post card that said they were missing rebate information. I wrote to them and told them that it was all sent in and that they must have lost it. They subtlely called me a liar. They said they didn't know anything about the post card and that I couldn't have sent in the rebate information. I faxed the post card (both sides by their request) to them. They didn't get back to me. I finally wrote 2 more times and requested information. The last time I got an email from them stating that they didn't get the rebate information. THEY DID!

Below is a copy of the last email:

Dear Ms. ******,

Unfortunately since you did not keep copies of the items that were sent in, we can not verify that you provided all information required to qualify for the rebate. As previously stated, the information goes to a rebate fulfillment house, not to Microtek employees and not overseas. If you had copies of your information, we would be able to resubmit the information for review.

I have had no answer to this problem and will be contacting a lawyer and the Attorney General on Monday.

I purchased a Microtek ScanMaker i320 a few months ago and sent in all the necessary information with a $20 rebate form that I got at Fry's Electronics. I've since received a denial of that rebate saying I didn't send in the necessary items. I DID SEND THEM IN AND AM VERY, VERY ANGRY AND WILL ESCALATE AS A RIP-OFF UNLESS THIS IS TAKEN CARE OF. What was the problem, didn't your employees overseas understand what they were getting and possibly threw it away?
