The woman advised me the box was owned and that she just switched to Bell. When I tried to set it up I called Rogers and they told me the box was a rental. I advised the seller and then she claims she’s on welfare and will have my money by months end. I was too kind and giving her that time. Now the woman doesn’t respond.
So I have this useless box which I can’t even activate.
So my question is; is there anything I can do? Will Rogers do anything (I know it’s a long shot).
Anybody been through this?
Should I go to the police? Is this a small claims court thing now?
not sure what else you can do, except put a police report but i doubt they would arrest the poor old lady. they might take a report down in case it happens again but some things you can do as a buyer *before* you buy a used netbox, is call rogers cable csr, and give them the serial number of the box ,they can check if its rental or outright purchase.
another thing, the poor old lady should note is that by selling a rental box, when she cancels the box or her account and they ask for the equipment back, she will have to pay a penalty for non return of equipment so yeah she will also get a nice surprise bill in the mail.
I dunno if u want to use that as leverage against her? tell her to give you the money back or you will report her to rogers for selling rental equipment, but if she is poor and on welfare what is she doing switching to bell fibe? shes probably paying more now?
