It sucks that happened to you but any place can screw you.

Also, I gotta call BS here. A bunch of rednecks that don't shop at Walmart?

In 'unstable' countries and China workers make between a $1 and $10 a day. Overhead across the board is low.

We could buy our stuff from 'stable' countries like Switzerland if they made any of it but then you will pay Rolex prices for a Timex and your $500 TV would probably cost $50,000.

Yep scamming is when you willingly give money to something that isn't real, Lying is what they do to get to scam you

Actually BAIT AND SWITCH doesn't apply in this situation as you friend actually bought the battery he wanted over two years ago and WAL-MART did not lure him into the store with the promise of a warrenty.

From Wiki:
a bait-and-switch is a form of fraud in which the party putting forth the fraud lures in customers by advertising a product or service at a low price or with many features, then reveals to potential customers that the advertised good is not available at the original price or the list of assumed features is different. The use of this term has extended to similar situations outside of the marketing sense.

I also think it is ludicrous to accuse a clerk that makes $9 of intending to defraud your friend. I'm sure Wal-Mart store managers have Raj like powers but again I suspect he was more concerned about keeping a customer happy and bending a corporate policy than any litigation Wal-Mart might have to endure over a $50 product. What do you think Wal-Mart spends a year for Lawyers? I'm not sure but the cost of a $50 small claim case could probably come out of the corporate-council's board room coffee fund.

Your friend got a new battery and the clerk and the manager have already forgotten the transaction. Sounds like everyone came away a winner.
