LOL yeah a lawyer will cost more then anything youll get.
Usally they pay for the label and email it to you to print and ship.
IF they said they would pay you for the shipping cost thats all you would be able to win in court,
No lawyer would take this case and the jude would most likely throw the case out after reviewing it as the company will just reimburse you.
I guess if they never rembust you then you can sue but again the lawyer cost will be way more then the $5 - $20 or whatever shipping was that you will get back by winning.
You can't just claim 5k for no reason at all. Unless you can prove that this made you lose $5000 some how then you can sue for that. So like if you whernet able to work due to this or some shit. but then it would need legit proof shown in court to count.
This would be a small claims matter not a criminal matter.
listen they ruined my fucking costco refund and im mad. i want to get money out of them in anyway. plus the item was really heavy so i might sue for back pain :^)
