Has anyone had luck getting scratches out of monitors?

During my recent move, someone scratched up my monitor. I'm pretty sure it happened due to someone carrying it against their body, which rubbed against their belt and scratched it up.

I tried buffing it out, but haven't had any luck. I also tried a water/alcohol solution that didn't work. Does anyone have an experience with getting them out?

They can seriously do that? That's ridiculous.

I could have taken it up with the company that delivered it but there was no proof that it was their fault or my fault.

First result for a google search on removing scratches from monitors was to use chapstick or vaseline (I guess the idea is just to fill up the scratch).

Alternately, you could try toothpaste and buff it out....

because logically you scratched it on purpose so you could go through the trouble of getting a new one after a week of arguements.

Get the BBB on their ass.

Who said anything about doing it on purpose? It could have been an accident and still been his fault. That said, I won't be ordering anything like that online after hearing this. That is truly ridiculous on a $2000+ TV.

I have two cats who are not de-clawed, they could have easily blamed them as well.

No proof either way... kinda sucked but whatever I can't see it unless I'm up close cleaning it and it functions properly.
