The Pampered Chef Pampered Chef Scours internet for used Pampered Chef items being sold by owners & falsely accuses of copyright violations- DON’T BUY PAMPERED CHEF Addison Illinois
As the owners of a few ‘Pampered Chef’ items, we decided to sell one lousy little item we did not use. We put one tiny / little bowl on an online auction, wrote our own description and used our own picture. Our auction was removed because this third rate UNAMERICAN company “the Pampered Chef”, decided to try and put a boot on our neck as good past customers.
The pampered chef actually contacted the online auction company with fabricated lies about “copyright violations” costing us time and money in auction listing fees. They never contacted us, they instead thought it wise to “stand around the corner” and try to cut our throat for simply selling an item we owned.
What kind of company values drives “business descisions” like this and thinks it wise to treat customers this way?? Sales must be really bad for a company to do this. [continued below]....
Don’t buy from the Pampered Chef…..the next thing you know they will be showing up at YOUR garage sale looking for used pampered chef items; and accusing YOU…a prior good customer of patent infringements or the like. Companies like this are un-American and you should not give them your money.
****** WE WROTE THEM THE FOLLOWING EMAIL:
My wife recently had a small “pampered chef” item for sale on an online auction. She bought this lousy little bowl from a pampered chef presentation, never used it and wrote her own description for the auction. She didn’t use any of your images either! (and no, you do NOT own single words in the English language, you pricks)
Nonetheless, the auction was removed because of your un-American company policies and whatever lies your lying little company “snitch” told the online auction company about your “copyright laws being violated”…..all because we were legally selling an item we own.
To actually have dealers or online “snitches” searching online auctions for you, for the mere presence of any used “pampered crap” item??? And then for your third rate company to actually make up lies about non-existent “violations”??? What a racket. We all know that is really what it is, now isn’t it? Who do you think you are fooling??? Better yet, what possible good or even ‘profitable benefit’ did you really think could come from such childish actions??? What a short sighted and asinine company policy.
Are sales REALLY this bad, that your company has nothing better to do than harass good customers who have bought your products in the past??????? (((The word “PAST” being very important here.)))
Your Stalanistic over-reaching just cost you a customer…..namely Us. Not only that but we are going to inform all of our family members, all friends and the person who’s presentation my wife attended where we bought it; about your dishonest and illegal actions (making things up and slandering us and our description – causing financial harm to us, if you want to be ‘technical’) , and how you treated us.
So…..you tried to screw someone and ended up screwing yourself at least 10 times harder huh??.. I think there is a lesson here, what do you think? Was it worth it? What disgusting dishonesty to go to such lengths to fabricate an issue over no violation at all. You all ought to be ashamed.
Let us be the first to say,….we hope your company slowly financially bleeds to death. (no need to reply, because I won’t be this kind the second time, you unimaginable pricks)
