Additional Notes

Complaint: Purchased a Dynatrap DT2000XL Insect Eliminator from this company that was advertised to come with "includes two 6-watt UV bulbs (3000 hours/4 months), metal stand, and retaining cage. 115 volts; AC; 7' power cord. 1-year mfg. warranty."This did not come with the metal stand. When contacted they stated that what I bought does not come with the metal stand even though it was advertised. I requested some sort of replacement for the stand so I could hang this bug system as suggested by retailer. I was informed that if the product is eligible to be returned, I could return it at my own cost. Item #: 65611F Order comfort*******

Desired Settlement: I would like for them to send me any metal stand that I can hang this on , or a credit me for not including a part of the product that was advertised that I purchased

Business Response: Hi-

The client is correct the item did not come with a metal stand although metal stand was stated in our ad.  We apologize greatly for this error.  A stand had originally been included but there was a manufacturer’s specification change and it was removed from the package.  In error, the description was not fully updated when we removed the photo showing the item with the stand.

We rectified the description as soon as Ms. ******** made us aware of the error.  We informed her on July 22nd that since there was an error, the merchandise may be returned to us without any cost to her and we provided instructions on how to send it back using our prepaid label.

When we then received this compliant on 7/30, we called Ms. ******** and again informed her that the merchandise can be returned at our cost, not at her cost, with instructions on sending it back using our prepaid label.

Unfortunately we do not have a stand to send since this product no longer includes a stand.  We will issue a refund in full once the merchandise is received back.  She has 30 days from receipt of her delivery to return the merchandise.  If she wishes to keep the item, we will be happy to issue a store credit of $10 towards her next purchase to help make up for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
Comfort House
