I'm so po'd about this whole thing! On both sides of the coin.
I'm po'd at vyrl for being so dumb. And I believe they should pay retailers for all that needs to be reimbursed. I feel they will be called into court over this and will have to pay!
I'm also po'd at every one of the people who actually used these coupons. There will be repercussions for those honest couponers who didnt use them, in the future when it comes to the world of coupons. We will be scrutinized even more now.
My first clue something wasnt right about the coupons was, $6 off Pantene! Give me a break, a $6 coupon? And now there are so many people claiming to be honest couponers (after they used those coupons and have merchandise in their homes from them) and po'd because they trusted Vyrl only to find out that some of them were fraudulent.
Like my mother always said, if something seems too good to be true, it is.
Has anyone found any articles about any of the honest couponers taking the stuff they got for free back to the retailers? Hell no!!
For all these people who claim to be so honest I have a question. If you were given back $10 too much change you would go back to the store and return it, correct? This is no different. There was a mistake made, return the merchandise!! If you had ANY out of pocket, take your receipt and I'm sure they will give you back what little you paid out. Keeping the merchandise, knowing it was received with a fraudulent coupon, even though you thought it was legit in the begining, is still being dishonest.
Do the right thing and return the merchandise to your retailer. They will respect you for your decision and will probably be more apt to give you less hassles over legit coupons in the future, knowing you are one of their honest customers.
