Re: I'm so tired of getting ripped off!
As long as people are so willing to buy 'cheap', 'inexpensive quality' will continue to a very elusive thing. Every producer can produce cheap, quality and high quality products. End result is a cost equation of what they perceive as the price point where the target market with cease purchasing their product / profit needed to be made.
I'm one of those people who will not buy something with a logo on it unless there is no available option.
Simple 21st century fact: Cheap is cheap regardless of the country of origin. Quality costs, and quality with a proof mark (logo) cost more, and quality with a proof mark (logo) with a lot of market development and advertising and customer service cost proportionally more.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
