Review: I wanted to ship a package from this UPS store. [redacted], one of the salespeople said that if I want to have the package shipped by UPS insured, it had be to wrapped by them. I asked him three times for the price of the wrapping and shipping, but he wouldn't give me a price. I asked him how much it would cost if I personally wrapped the package (to save money). He would not quote an estimate for the price of their services; he kept saying that the service would be much cheaper if the store wrapped my laptop. Because he did not tell me how much he would charge, I wanted to leave the store, but by then he had already taken my package to the back and wouldn't return it to me. I felt taken advantage of because my merchandise was held hostage for ransom (the price I didn't want to pay). When I wanted to talk to the manager about these dishonest business practices, the employees started calling me names. I felt humiliated and was the victim of price gouging. Eventually, I was able to get my package from them only by paying $20 for the wrapping, the service they forced on me. I left the store and mailed my package from the postal services. They made it clear that if I didn't pay $20 for the wrapping, quite an unfair price they forced on me, they would not return to me my expensive $1500 laptop.Desired Settlement: I didn't want them to wrap my laptop for $20, and they wanted to charge me $50 for wrapping and shipping. When a customer doesn't want to pay for a service, he should not be held hostage and forced to pay for a service he doesn't want. On top of that, customers' property should not be taken for ransom. I demand that this company pay back the $20 they forced me to pay to get my laptop back.Thank you for your assistance.
