NEW YORK (AP) An East Harlem woman who bought a secondhand TV for $25 in New York said she felt uncomfortable buying the TV because it was a second hand model.
Samantha Stahl bought the $25 TV, which she bought for $20 at the Secondhand TV store, on Friday.
She said she bought it for a friend in her town because she knew it was second hand.
She also said she had a good relationship with the store.
She did not give her name or say when she bought the TV.
Stahl said she was concerned about what she was buying and that she didn’t want the company to use her name.
She didn’t tell anyone about the purchase until she received an email from a Secondhand store employee, telling her to call back.
The worker said the store did not have a policy against buying second hand items.
Stalin said she contacted the store and asked for a refund and an apology.
She told the employee the reason she bought a TV is because she was told it was from a second name.
The store sent Stahl an email saying the store was going to buy the TV for her and said the second hand label would be sent to the person who purchased it.
Stalll said she’s never heard of the company, which is owned by her friend, or her friend’s business ever using her name, but she thinks it’s an issue of people not trusting their first name.
