    Couldnt you return it? Or at least talk to them about it? Ribble doesnt seem like the kind of place to **** someone over like that purposly, but I could always be wrong.

    Ribble seem to have, at best, a mixed reputation.

    Yeah, shame really. They're pretty good to deal with in person but online they have issues.
