Re Radio Kit and catalogs

Before we have a public lynching about cashing checks and not receiving
catalogs, that alone is not necessarily an indicator of a questionable
outfit. (After all, that is a prosecutable offense under many
statutes, I'm sure.) Don't forget that those catalogs go through the
US postal service, which has a reputation (especially in the Chicago
and Washington DC areas, and probably others) for being less than 100%
efficient. Mail gets lost all the time, sometimes it get stolen,
sometimes it gets deliberately thrown away so it won't have to be
handled (and this DOES happen, and has been in the media many times
over the years, believe me...we just went though that a SECOND time
this year in the Washington DC area). When your check came back
cashed but no catalog came, was a complaint sent to Radio Kit? If they
fail repeatedly to send catalogs, that's one thing, but a single
instance of mail not being received does not necessarily constitute
mail fraud or whatever you want to call it. (And the same thing
happens on e-mail and on ham packet--just because someone doesn't
respond to your message doesn't mean they're a no good@#$ may
well have never gotten there...and in some cases, many messages may not
be getting thru--I've been on both ends of this situation more times
than I care to remember.) 73 and Queue Our Pea DE WA8MCQ
