I was unable to receive a return address from Better Planet Books or Textbook Rentals in order to return the text book.  We sent e-mails to at and tried to find a telephone number for them. In addition I tried to call Textbook Rentals at the number on my credit card statement 404-534-2345 WA but the number is not in service.

I believe that Better Planet Books scammed my son when he rented the text book for $53.71 by sending the wrong edition, and then fraudulently charged us $65.29 for not returning the book as they would not provide a return address.

I called AA Goods Co, the company that shipped the book at (916)628-8867 and was told that they only sell books, they do not rent books they informed me that the book was purchased on by a third party named “Fresh” using my home address as their address as well as for the delivery address.  “Fresh” paid $7.94 for the book and $3.99 for shipping the book to my address.

Better Plant Books in Washington did not provide the book delivered to me.   AA Goods Co from Sacramento sold the book through and mailed it to me. 

Better Planet Books/Textbook Rentals would not supply us with a return address for text book rental because they had not sent the book to us.  One cannot contact either company by telephone or by e-mail.  There is no way to return the book without a return address.

They then have the audacity to charge us for not returning the book!
