Why is that? it is always being pointed out on here that the view expressed a not necessarily those of AVSorry guys, i have had to remove the name of the retailer as we have only heard one side.
I am not doubting what you say is true, but it could be harmful for AVF if we start naming and shaming.
It's because they're utterly useless, not customer focused in the slightest and only there to sell the uninitiated and generally clueless expensive warranties and add-ons at over inflated prices. They might throw in some electronics or electrical items in with the sale but they don't really care about them.How painless was that and why didn't they do it weeks ago.
Timed that great didn't I! Got myself a beaut of a TV!! Joking aside well done, I'm glad this has resolved and you can finally relax, like you say though, why didn't they do this originally?They told me they were sending someone out within the hour, and a guy in a white plain van turned up and took it away
Great stuff, piece of mind all sorted.All sorted!

At least I have my spare room back!
I have absolutely no idea if they advertise or not, i am just enforcing the rules that say you cant be insulting to other members or companies.Why not sounds like they fully deserve it. Wonder if they are an Av advertiser, hmmm.
Sorry but you are incorrect.I'm ex police and it wouldnt be theft at all, as someone mentioned it earlier, he hasnt appropriated anything, whether dishonestly or not, it was sent to him, he hasnt tried to get this tv by any means at all.
Leaving it outside in the rain would be criminal damage though, as you were reckless in leaving an electronic item out in the rain as everyone knows electronic items dont fare well when wet.
"Intentionally or recklessly damages or destroys property belonging to another".
I would send them the letter as advised and on that state days and times for collection, it's their error you dont have to go out of your way.
Take screenshots when on the phone to them screenshots of emails and print outs of emails.
The onus of proof would be on the prosecution for theft and they would have to show that you actually tried to acquire the tv in the first place and then denied returning it which you havent.
After being Police for a few years, i now work investigating fraud, have seen a few of these cases where people have been sent duplicate items, items delivered to a wrong address and i can tell you that if he had been taken to court for theft it wouldn't have stood up at all, i imagine it wouldn't even get that far as there really isn't a case to answer.Sorry but you are incorrect.
1. take (something) for one's own use, typically without the owner's permission.
"the accused had appropriated the property"
His wife had taken it it off the delivery person, so therefore appropriated it.
They did not give them permission, and the OP would have known that permission would not have been given under the circumstances.
If something is given to you in error and you decide to keep it, then its theft,
Look at it another way, you (as in YOU) order something from Amazon, it gets delivered but you are not in so they give it to your neighbour and they decide to keep it. Is that not theft either?
