Velocity Products Inc. Complaint - Pepper Spray Is Just A Rip Off

Review by poe on 2008-07-12
TEXAS -- I ordered muzzle pepper spray to ward off aggressive dogs. It was sold as a spray but when I tried to use it, it came out as a weak stream that barely even dribbled out the end. When I tried to return it and get my account credited, they send me a return policy letter that basically says that I had to jump through all their hoops before they would do anything at all. What a bunch of crap customer service and crap products.

You live and learn and I learned that I and any one else I know will never do business with this bunch of losers.

It would be interesting to know...exactly what were the 'hoops' they wanted you to jumps through?

Call them and get an RMA. Ship the product back and they ship you a replacement. If you want a refund you still need an RMA, then ship it back. They deduct 25% as a restocking fee (even if it's defective) then issue a credit for the remaining balance. What's so difficult?

25% restocking fee on a defective product? What are the doing restocking a defective product? Obviously they intend on returning it to inventory, reselling it, and potentially collect 25% on the same item indefinitely.

Under those conditions I would send it back and dispute the charges.

I'd forget the pepper spray and have a little chat with the owners of the dogs. There is no reason this should ever be a problem for you.

I used a pistol on an aggressive dog one time. Worked great.

When I was a milkman we carried aeosol pepper spray.. it came out in a solid stream and when you're are being attacked by a vicious dog, you simply don't have the extra split second to aim at the dog's face..much less have time to reach for the can..Like I said on another thread, the best result I had was when I dropped a 40 pound milk case on the dog's head.... worked like a charm!
