I found an ad on eBay back in 2010 selling many brands of gift cards at significant discounts. Contact e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
. When I e-mail for info, the reply comes from Alex Buckley. I Googled and didn't find any negative reviews, or any reviews.
The deal did sound too good to be true, but I gave it a try. All gift cards I ordered were delivered and I was able to use them without any problem. So I went ahead and use the prepay option which gives me a bigger discount. With the many cards I ordered, there were occasional problems, but I always receive my credit back when I report the problem. So I continued to buy.
I haven't bought any gift cards from "Alex Buckley Create Union Inc." for quite a while. But I still have prepay balance. I wanted to order a card or two a few weeks ago. But when I try to login, my account seems to be disabled. I sent e-mail several times but did not get a reply. In the past, I got replies to every inquiry. I Googled again, still no negative reviews or any reviews.
I managed to post a question to another person who apparently has ordered from the same place before. This person said "Alex Buckley Create Union Inc." buys the gift cards directly from the companies using stolen credit cards. The person also tried to report to the police but did not get anywhere.
If this is true, I feel so bad to have contributed to such internet fraud. I file this report so others would see it. I imagine "Alex Buckley Create Union Inc." still "sells" gift cards, as the website "http://www.gift-cards.biz/" is still active, even though my account is disabled. So please, do the world a favor by not buying from this place.
