A & W Surplus Rip Off Deceptive Trade Fraud Bait and Switch

This company is something else. They hold auctions on Proxibid, show a photo of the item you are suppose to be bidding on, but that isn’t the item they send you. Instead, you get a broken version, incomplete version, smelly, dirty, dead insects, missing parts, broken parts, and not the items they showed in the auction photographs. Then, when they bill you, they do it in 2 separate billings; one thru Proxibid and the other thru PayPal. They do this so that if you decide to dispute the charge thru PayPal, they escalate it to a claim and since the dispute is regarding the quality or since you did receive something from them, PayPal automatically rules in their favor since it was not an Ebay auction. It’s a way to circumvent the system to their advantage. I have published a blog that shows the emails sent from them to me and vice versa as well as photos showing what I was suppose to be bidding on and what I received instead. Also, as far as they are concerned, the matter is closed. As far as I’m concerned, this is just the beginning. I am posting this to each and every place I can find and reporting it to each and every agency I can find. A scam is a scam.

Here is the link to my first blog and I will continue blogging until hell freezes over:

    I just received an email from them. They are threatening to have their attorney contact me because of the truth I’ve posted online. See, if a company or person does what’s right, they don’t have to make threats. And, good customer service out-weights everything; they haven’t shown me any.

    You should get your own lawyer. Fight back.
