I haven't tried it, but has anyone taken some hideously RFI generating

(it's not worth it to ask questions), but I wonder if there's any mechanism
to even follow up on it.

I've done it, and no questions were asked. I told them what the problem was, but there was zero interest.

I suspect somebody, somewhere is following the percentage of returns on given items, but that's probably about it. With the sort of junk that's being sold, RFI-related returns are probably a tiny minority.
