When Web “florists in Bangor” lead to Vancouver – Bangor Daily News

When Web “florists in Bangor” lead to Vancouver – Bangor Daily News.

We received an e-mail last week from an unhappy consumer in Down East Maine. The writer had a less than pleasant experience when he ordered flowers from a Web site touting “hand delivery by our local florist.”

He had searched the Internet for “florists in Bangor” and was directed to a site called Pink Lotus Florist. After placing his order, our consumer received an invoice for $62. He found his credit card had been charged $77 (the site notes charges are in “USD,” which we assume means U.S. dollars; we learned later the company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia).
