BEWARE OF SEARS.COM. AND Spectrum Superstore with a website of

I made the mistake of purchasing 5 CASES OF 3M 8233 RESPIRATORS from

It seems that in actuality it is shipped by a company called Spectrum Superstore with a website of that is selling through This company rarely answers the phone, shipped us ONLY 5 RESPIRATORS not the 5 cases of 20 units for a total of 100 units I ordered for over $150.00. Then blamed Sears, and me taking NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR LISTING BEING THE PROBLEM. Offering to refund me $80.00 of my $151.00 purchase and then I can keep the 5 Disposable respirators. I purchased them @ approx $1.50 each and they want me to keep 5 @ over $16.00 each OBVIOUSLY they are mathematically challenged and pulling a SCAM.

Sears just says sorry you have to deal with Spectrum Superstore even though you bought the product from Spectrum Superstore says you have to fill out a refund request on their website which will email you where AND how to return the product but that email has never shown up. Yes, I checked my spam folder. Not even spam catches an email that was not sent ;-). Anyhow, my recourse was to dispute the charge through my credit card company. Sears and this company Spectrum Superstore are really pulling a scam here and needs to be stopped

This very thing has happened to me with a microwave. I am now stuck with a defective microwave that I paid $300.00 for.

lesson learned!
Sears is going bust.....they will get in bed with any fly by night company to get some cash in their pocket.
What a shame, they used to be a great company with great products. I still have a Sears furnace from from 30 years, still working great.
No more, after all these dumb MBA's baby boomers got into Sear's.
