I got a call from an unknown number who happened to be a representative from the US Standards Products. They started the call introducing themselves as the cheapest and best company and told me that I had a free t-shirt that they wanted to deliver to my doorstep. When I showed a little interest, they shifted the conversation from the free t-shirt to the different items that they wanted to ship to my place.
After few minutes, they already had listed three items that they wanted to ship to my place. They did not tell me the cost and said that these would be the best fit as per my requirement. They had my personal information and other details with them. That is how they become the one dictating the flow of the call.
I had to interrupt him to make him stop. I told him that I would only be interested in trying the safety glasses from Grainger. We usually order it from a different company that charges $1.90 per pair. So, I thought the price would be somewhere close to that rate. I did not ask him the exact price and he did not bother to inform me as well.
He said that the case would contain 24 pairs of glasses and that is the one they had with them. I agreed. I order them frequently and I did not mind ordering the entire case. So, I agreed.
The order reached me in a couple of days. They had sent me not one but two cases which I never ordered. I was shocked to see the price on their invoice. It mentioned $358.80 for each case. In total, I was billed for $717.60.
When I opened the case, the safety glasses looked worthless to me. Paying such an outrageous price for something that was not even worth a cent was not justified. I tried to talk to them. But, nothing was sorted. After few days, I received other three orders that I asked not to send.
They billed me more than $1000 in one shot. I am not going to pay these fraudsters. Either they send me a return ticket to send these items back including the safety glasses or they forget about the invoice.
In no sense, I am ever going to pay for these items that I never ordered. On top of that, the quality is pathetic. I have never used anything like these. I believe that US Standard Products uses these filthy sales tactics to scam their customers. In no way, one can buy such pricey items which are more like trash.
If you even get a call from someone calling from this company, you should know what to do, just hang up. Even if you let them talk to you for few seconds, they would entice you into buying something and would bill you like monsters.
And, I never received that free t-shirt ever. The address was correct, and they sent me the items that I never asked for with huge price tag with them. But, I never received what was free.
