The troubling discovery prompted the Florida woman to contact the local Wal-Mart where she bought the curious box and complain, but reportedly workers there told her it wasn't their problem and that she should contact Nintendo instead. Of course, Nintendo told her roughly the same thing, leaving mother and son with a $138 box of rocks.


IF it's true - that's sad!



I know a few Christmases ago someone reported a knife in a toy and it turned out they put it there.
You just never know!

"They don't want to do nothing. They want me to keep the box of rocks. I'm not buying a box of rocks for $138," she said.


Rolling Eyes Can't blame her for that!...if it's true...

Speaking from a seller's viewpoint, how could anyone be sure the woman didn't remove the item herself, repack the box with rocks, and then try to return it to Walmart with a fabricated story?

I've heard many strange stories from Walmart employees about the ways customers steal from them, including returning items they've used for months.

I'm a skeptic of everything I read and hear, but I will start opening those boxes before I make another purchase.

Yeah, books.

I always look in my boxes before I leave the store and check my order before I leave the WINDOW at the drive thru. People think I'm crazy, but...Oh well! Rolling Eyes

I guess you can never tell these days.

I kinda posted this because of the horror stories that I would read on *bay's discussion boards about sellers who would get things like this done to them.

Amazingly enough, however, Wal-Mart soon caved after learning that the same box of rocks had been previously returned by another disgruntled customer.


Wow, just wow. That's Wal-Mart rock bottom prices for you.
