Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No and no I'm not paying an additional $18. Can you answer my question or not? Is there a relay that I can remove or do you know how to turn off the chime and buzzing?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I guess you don't. Please credit back my $.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No thank you. Just stop payment. I don't have 24 hours.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Why was I charged? My question was never answered.
