niko-32-tv-scam.jpgWhen I got married, I bought a new flat screen LCD high-definition TV. I searched months prior for the best deal; price and quality. I decided to buy the a no name brand, but got some excellent reviews, from Niko. The TV is excellent, it is my first LCD and my only complaint is the remote control. The remote stinks and there is currently no universal remote control handling for this TV.

I bought it from Tiger Direct, they had the best deals, and the reviews were plentiful while the product was in stock. It offered a $100 rebate that would go through OnRebate.com. I filled out all the paper work, handed in all the papers and original UPCs and the email receipts (since that was the only receipt I got from Tiger Direct).

Niko rejected the rebate because it was an email receipt. Supposedly, I had to go to the Tiger Direct web site, login, go to the invoices section and then print out that version of the receipt. No where did it state this... Oh, and get this. Niko does not accept any resubmissions, no matter what.

It looks like I was not the only one who fell for this, here are two others.
