A bizarre story out of Texas, where a couple was charged $3,500 and had their credit scores ruined by an online retail company, all because of a bad review.
"Way back in 2008, Jen Palmer's husband ordered her a number of trinkets from the website KlearGear.com. … For 30 days KlearGear.com never sent the products, so the transaction was automatically cancelled by PayPal." (Via KUTV)
She tried calling the company but never got through, so she took to the website Ripoff Report to vent her frustrations, saying the company had "incompetent customer service" and "there is absolutely no way to get in touch with a physical human being."
