I haven't tried it, but has anyone taken some hideously RFI generating widget (that shouldn't) and tried to return it to a mass market retailer (Wal-Mart, Home Depot)? I imagine they'd just take it, no questions asked (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.
