Circuit City Finally Refunds $169 Fraudulent Charge

The lady whom Circuit City charged an extra $169 for an HDTV installation will finally get her money back. The fee was because it was over a fireplace and fireplaces are usually made of brick. However, this fireplace was fake and the wall was drywall. When a local TV news investigation team started asking questions, Circuit City Spokeswoman Jackie Foreman just kept chirping, “It’s resolved.” Two days after the report aired, Jackie told the reporters, “Byrd’s installation was not standard…due to a miscommunication; Ms. Byrd will receive a refund.”
