I hate people that try and commit return fraud.
Cross-retailer return: Returning or exchanging an item purchased at another retailer (usually at a lower price) for cash, store credit or a similar, higher-priced item at another retailer.
On that note... and first let me preface this with the fact that I flip more than 90% of the people here... I don't need to compare numbers, I just know I do.
But, the one the irks me the most, is when people buy games from one retailer, then go to another store and trade them back in to the same retailer.
I have no problem buying 50 games from one company, trading them in to another company, and walking away with $1,000 and smirking the whole way laughing "suckers!"
But to negatively, intentionally, diminish the bottom line of a company that without a doubt is losing money because you are buying from them and then trading them right back for more... that one gets me. I can't live with myself if I did that one. If left to un-restricted limits that company would go backrupt from that mistake. And some people exploit it.
Some will argue "it's their fault!" That may be, but there has to be some moral ethicaly dillema there right? I mean, on the scale of 1-2 games, meh.... but to do 50-100 games exploiting the shit out of it... that one's different.
Like I said, if some company is doing a B1G1 and another company is running a trade in bonus, well hell, perfect formula, go to town. But not when one individual company is running a B1G1 and a TIV bonus at the same time... buying from one, trading back to same one... you need to take a shower, cause you dirty.
