Here at Outdoors with Othmar Vohringer I wrote a review “ Unique Fishing Lures” of the Canadian Bottle Cap Lure Company in June of 2006.
To my deepest regret I had to learn that this company might be not all that sincere when it comes to doing business with customers. A week ago I received an e-mail from a gentlemen (name withheld by me). He tells me that he ordered and paid for 200 Bottle Cap lures in August of 2006. To this date he has not received any delivery of the products or refund of the money.
In several email exchanges with the Bottle Lure Company, some of which he sent to me, the gentlemen got nothing but lame excuses why they can’t send the lures. When asked to refund the money the company wrote back that they would like to do that but can’t because only the boss can sign the check. However the boss of the company never seems to be in the office or even in Canada.
I personally wrote an email to the Bottle Cap Lure Company asking for an explanation of the situation. That was a week ago, time enough to respond to my quest. It seems that the Bottle Lure Company is not interested in explaining what are serious allegations from a customer. This behavior really makes me wonder about the business ethics of the Bottle Lure Company.
I came to the conclusion that the writer of the email seems to have a valued point and warning to all that order lures from the Bottle Cap Lure Company when he writes: Norm (Norm Price owner of Bottle Lure Company) is dishonest doesn’t deliver. He takes your money and runs.
I have therefore decided to pull the Bottle Lure Company review immediately and post this warning to all my readers. If you or someone you know has had a similar experience with the Bottle Cap Lure Company, please do not hesitate and let me know.
I would like to state that the Bottle Cap Lure Company has never been a sponsor of “Outdoors with Othmar Vohringer” as has been assumed by some readers of this blog. From time to time I write product reviews from companies that are not my sponsors. Only companies listed with a small banner in the right hand panel under the category “Sponsors of O.W.O.V.” are approved sponsors.
