Complaint Review: Direct Buy - directbuy.com

Direct Buy - directbuy.com Ripoff was intrigued, but skeptical Buffalo New York
I did find the site with no trouble, but it was largely uninformative. It said nothing more than what I had heard in the 10 minutes I listened to it while I was getting ready for work. The raving customer reviews were dry and seemed perfectly scripted... That was the first thing that lead me to suspicion.
I was curious to see how much membership costs... Here I am, naively thinking it'd be... maybe $100... but I couldn't find anywhere where their fees were listed. That raised my suspicions a little more. I was really hoping to find where I could look up items, and see what they're charging.
I'd understand I wouldn't have access to their full catalog, but if I could just check out a few things, I could get a good idea for what I'm in for... LOL- I used to watch THE PRICE IS RIGHT, alot, and I've gotten very good at pricing things.
I decided to do a websearch for "direct buy reviews" and I think I clicked on maybe 10 different links, and not one had anything good to say about this company. That is what helped me make my mind up.
Ultimately, I'm leaving this message to thank all of you, and ripoffreport for your insight. Although it's HORRIBLY unfortunate what you've all been through, if nothing else comes of it, I just want you to know, that some good has come of it. You're saving other prospecive consumers from making the same mistake, as long as they do their research. Good luck to all of you with the whole scam, and don't quit fighting it!
