    I just think it sounds like a great idea, I have tons of stupid shit to mail. But I’m pretty bad about sending it out.

    My last attempt to contact her was December 13, 2020 at 2:11 pm. I didn't get a response. I know she's been dealing with a lot of crap with the handles so I haven't been hounding her on it. Once the handles start to calm down I'll be attempting to contact again.

    Just pullin’ your pisser. Best avenue for a response is a txt msg during her gov’t working hours. So it was for me when I was dealing with her.

    Well.. if I had to guess.. once the second package never arrives. She will use the first tracking as proof of her fulfillment of the order.

    The sad thing is, I'm pretty sure a round 3 of the pre-ordering grab handles will start up right after she gets this round 2 finished up. I have absolutely no faith that she will have learned to get the shipment first then open up ordering. There will never be a good time to hound her about the HUD.

    I mean, if we all had the ability to pull down $170k in revenue per 1,000 orders, it would be silly to stop that gravy train. More the problem is the greasy way that KTJO 4x4 does it without fixing any of the glaring problems.


    In my mind, I see that 2,000 handles per year would both equal retirement and nearly perpetual income if done properly, right?

    I thought she lived in Oregon? She has a Washington area code...

    I have a theory on how she runs her "business"
    She figured she could sell 1 grab handle over and over and live perpetually off of restocking fees. So her first attempt was smashing the box and mailing it. A few customers returned the item and were charged a restocking fee. But one customer kept the item. So now she came up with a new plan. Continue to smash boxes, but leave important items out of the order. This new tactic will now allow her to get paid for shipping a second (third?) time, charge for a restocking fee for the pillar, accidentally not cancel the order until the handle ships, and she can charge for a second restocking fee! Instant 400% profit!

    KTJO is not, and WAS NEVER, a TW approved vendor and IIRC was permabanned in part b/c she kept trying to act like one when she isn't. The poor customer service was another big part of that.

    True, there is more to it. But that's the gist of it.
