re: Credit card fraud and illegal usuary charges without customer's approval.

On end of july 2006, I placed a $100.00 deposit on a used Mazda transmission. Two days later, in august within the grace period allowed by law to end any customer obligation, I called ASAP asking to refund my deposit. I was rudely told that I would have to wait until Aug 14 th to get a refund.and a charge of 20% of what the transmission cost is Instead of refunding, the company, without my knowlege or Permission charged my credit card another hundred dollars.

That makes $200. that the company holds of my money, and I didnt get any acknowledgement of transaction or invoice, receipt from ASAP. The item was on layaway over the weekend only and never left the company shelf.when i went to look at my credit card stament i seen the charge and told master card to put temp block on my card

One week has passed and no refund,, no invoice, nothing. Only a further disgracefull pronouncement from ASAP that they will charge 20 percent restocking fee. The transmission never left company doors, sits on their shelf. Why restocking fee.

WHERE IS MY $200.00. In their bank account. No receipt nothing from them.

I locked my credit card to prevent further charges from ASAP. According to my credit card company, deposits into my account are accepted, so I told the president Scot Scandel about this.he said let me talk to accounting a very rude women with a bad accent came back told me i better unblock my card then I get refund. I did say BS no way and the will charge me 5% for using my credit card so scot scandel said scandel was to chicken to come back him self.

He had pushed me from person to person and nothing happened. Then the did hung me up rude on top

And one more 3000 BBBcases filied in houston BBB. There have been 3516 requests for a reliability report on this company in the past 36 months. Of those, 1340 requests were made in the past 12 months

Additional company management personnel include:
Dina Hoover, Manager; Dina Moore and scott sandellalll. I want is my money back from them

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!

HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO:

Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!

DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!

Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.

CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD

If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!

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?

#4 Consumer Suggestion

asap motors has grossly frauglent advertizing

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

We shouldn't blame junk yards, but when ASAP MOTORS advertizes (hot run-tested-leak tested) and you receive an engine missing a piston, thats extremely bad advertizing that should warrant criminal charges. The word is spreading about how bad this company is (3000 complaints) and the best senario would be that the junk yards quit selling to them and the state of Texas shut them down. Just think of all the lives this company is affecting, including my own. I am asking all the junk yards out there, please sell your parts to a reputable company that would be honest to their sellers.

#5 Consumer Comment

so why all you fall for them

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

As I have been in this business for 34 years this business has got to changes for this evil stuff like asap motors. Yes I have sold them a lot of stuff and I guess there is lots of people happy cause it was my stuff. But now I can see there is lots of people not happy. Please don't take it out on auto salvage yards cause it is not us. Them people are brokers and then most of those people are the best there is so dont take it on them. Do your home work and trust your feelings and I wish I could say more but we are hard working people to help you to save you money
