[NTLK] Is NewtonSales a good choice?

THE POINT IS: he bought something from NewtonSales--and got something else, NOT what he ordered, although it might be "similar."

Do a search through the NewtonTalk archives on the topic of NewtonSales...and PLEASE, THEN--take a seat and read.

Many here are too polite to chime in. I have no direct dealings with NewtonSales...but as a follower of NTLK since at least 2010, I can offer this advice in dealing with them based on what I have read here and echoed by another user in a similar email:

Run as far and as fast as you can, away from them...and when you think you have run far enough away....

RUN SOME MORE!

Thanks,

I could have done something but I couldn't be bothered as I had purchased a screen protector anyway also I'm only 15 so I can't really do anything about it.
