STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, it's paid for!

#2 Consumer Suggestion

BOOYA to Greg Adler who can afford rogaine, but decides to go natural

AUTHOR: Mcduff - (U.S.A.)

The sweetest thing was when major distributors and businesses completely stopped doing business with 4 Wheel Parts

Greg Adler advertised UPS SHIPPING, when in fact he transported products via the lowest bid vendor. PROHIBITED FROM USING ANY UPS LOGO

Greg Adler advertised NO QUESTIONS ASKED TIRE WARRANTY, when in fact it had major questions and exclusions. PROHIBITED FROM USING this Unlawful and Deceptive Advertisement

It goes on and on.

Accumlated Consumer Complaints Regarding 4WP Scams

AUTHOR: Frank - (U.S.A.)

SOME ACCUMULATED CONSUMER COMPLAINTS BEING FORWARDED TO THE CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL

1) My favorite 4WP scam is the "buy 3, get 1 free" deal on the Procomp tires. Whenever they offer this deal they also jack up the price by about $20-$30/tire. (this applies to all sales)

2) wow- this is horrible. I've got my shocks on order with them, First 4WP sales says that they are "Overstocked" and that he would give me an excellent deal. Two weeks after I placed the order i get an email saying that , "My shocks are on nationwide backorder." Call after call, 4WP kept pushing back the arrival date until I finally changed to the more expensive shocks. I still don't know where the extra $25.00 over their advertised prices came from, must have been the "hidden handling charges". But, the sad part is they had the best prices compared to anybody in town. All the others would have had to do the dreaded special order and wait game.

3) Well 4wheelparts had the 38/15/15 BFG's at a good price of $222.00 each. Now that they are advertising $40.00 back they are now $232.00 each. To me that is not even a good deal cause all they are doing is giving you the extra $10.00 that you paid for the tires back. Then it says free shipping yeah but you have to buy the tire warrenty. What kind of a deal is that. I was about ready to order them and found out that I was going to pay more for the four tires than when there is no sale. What a bunch of crooks if you ask me. I am going to stay with dealing with Trucks and Stuff they treat me pretty good.

4) I also dealt the the "shipping charges" when getting parts. As mentioned they never have any real 4x4 parts in stock and wanted to charge me shipping even if I picked the parts up at the store.....WTF

IT IS FACT, THE MORE PEOPLE COMPLAIN IN FORUMS & FILE FEDERAL COMPLAINTS with the links provided at the begging of the post......THE BETTER SERVICE WILL GET FOR CUSTOMERS OR 4WP WILL CEASE TO EXIST
