Kragen Auto Parts Scam Alert

   Wed, December 10, 2008 - 4:26 PM
I bought an air compressor from Kragen with a $20.00 rebate. I sent in the rebate per the instructions. After quite a few weeks, they mailed out a rebate check for the $20.00.

I just saw a $20.00 debit and a $7.00 debit on my account. I called and they said Kragen STOPPED PAYMENT on the rebate check! You have got to be kidding me!

Obviously, CSK stores are off limits to me forever. Screw those A**holes!

The stores they do business under are O'Reilly Auto Parts, Checker Auto Parts, Schuck's Auto Supply, Kragen Auto Parts and Murray's Discount Auto Stores.

they have to give you a reason for the stop payment. i know it's proll not worth it but you could take them to small claims court. maybe just threaten to? they would be liable to show a valid reason for stopping the check, prove fraud on your part, or some other such failure to comply to the rebate procedure. might even be liable for 3 times the amount of the check (plus court costs). it might be worth it to at least make some noise.

nice share
I have recently started a blog, the info you provide on this site has helped me greatly. There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think he did some good things in features also. Keep working, great job! Thanks for a very interesting blog. What else can I get that kind of information written in such a perfect approach? I have a company that I"m simply now operating on, and I"ve been on the look out for such information.
