cutco / RIP OFF
It is a 100 years old trick that has been around for company to make money. There is nothing new about it. Unfortunately, some people got suck into it.
Oh, those people who posted comment contesting it, you are probably one of the their staff.
From the consumer point of view. CUTCO IS THE SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. READ ON ...
I am a chef at a restaurant, I have plenty of knife, some good, some bad. I don't really feel that even for my daily usage, I need CUTCO knife. There are plenty of knives that work for me provide that you just hone it a little before using it.
The reason of my complaint is that THEY RIP OFF CUSTOMER BY CHARGING OUTRAGEOUS SHIPPING CHARGE. We have bought a knife just to help out a daughter of a friend who got suck into it. Can you imagine they charge me $10 for a single knife that cost $85. It probably weight less then 8 oz. I have just bought a Camera and a camcorder, and the shipping charge was $5.95.
What do you call that? A SCAM OR A RIPOFF. I call it both.
When I called the company to complaint about the shipping charge. A woman tell me "oh, it is a knife, it require special handling. We charge according to the price of the knife" WHAT KIND OF MARKETING IS THAT? THEY JUST WANT TO MILK OUT SOME MORE MONEY FROM CONSUMER.
I said that it is unfair to charge that much for a little knife, but she insist that that was my opinion and they don't really care since I bought the knife anyway.
What prompt me to write this complaint is that, we have got the knife today from UPS, and it is in the box weight less than one pound. I was so curious about what SPECIAL HANDLING was put on for this knife. Sure enough, when I open the package, I see a knife in a long white hard paper sleeve inside a plastic bag. There were some large bubbles in the box to firm it up a little.
TELL ME, CUTCO'S ANY ONE. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO EXPLAIN THIS?
