Secret target "reseller" using coupons to make a profit; $185,000 in eBay sales
That's the reason Amy Thompson is speaking up. "I am infuriated; I don't think
it's fair," said Thompson. Thompson says she's a loyal Victoria's Secret
customer, and she says for years she has run into major problems with the store.
In 2006 she was asked to sign a large sale cash form before buying merchandise.
That same year she says her online orders started getting cancelled. In 2014 she
says local stores will no longer accept coupons from her, and she also received
a divorce letter from the store. It asked her to stop future purchases, returns
and exchanges at the store. In 2015, a disorderly conduct ticket was delivered
to her door. Thompson filed a complaint with Wisconsin Consumer Protection.
Victoria's Secret's parent company, Limited Brands, or L Brands responded.
Victoria's Secret accuses Thompson of being a reseller. She takes some of the
new clothing she buys and sells it on eBay. If she buys the merchandise with
coupons, she can make a profit. She claims the fraudulent coupons Victoria's
Secret presented in their response do not show any evidence they were used by
Thompson. She also says Victoria's Secret did not bring forward any evidence to
show the survey coupons were altered. Victoria's Secret says Thompson has sold
more than $185,000 worth of Victoria's Secret merchandise on the site. Listing
75 pages of eBay records as evidence.
