Lifetime Battery SCAM

The SLA is a bad faith scam. When I got my cordless batteries replaced, it took quite a bit of runaround. I properly registered all my cordless parts with Ridgid. When it came time to get warranty, their "system" had been changed and they could not find my records. I was finally able to get them replaced PER THE WARRANTY.


Now, when they need replaced again, they state that I got an email back in August of 2012 stating I had to re-register them. Despite having a record of emails from Home Depot as far back as 2007 regarding SLA matters, I have NO record of an email stating I have to reregister.


It's a classic bait and switch using a beaurocratic rope a dope scheme. The service center I talked with says that most of the people he deals with has had similar experience. When the class action lawsuit gets file, you can bet your a$$ I will be a part of it.
