Last October, a mass-marketing email was sent from a Houston,
Texas-based E-Commerce, Inc aka Dulux Electronics, ran by a Mr. Scott Christie, its President.
Offered was a region-free DVD player, for $249, with numerous goodies including Sega games, etc.
After talking with them on the phone, I became very suspicious, and told them I was not interested.
Well, here it is, almost a year later, and they have suddenly debited my checking accont for $299.00!!
I never authorized this and have never received any merchandise from these people. I have filed a complaint with my credit union and they are investigating. Meanwhile, I am out $299.00 until they finish their investigation.
I got the following information from another rip off report posted here:
Organization: E-Commerce Inc
address: 5773 Woodway #304
Houston, Tx 77057 US
Leader of the Scam: Scott Christie
phone: 713 5219162
Also listed on one of the site's registrations as a technical contact is
Tech contact: Dunvale, Robert
phone: 713 7851556
As the units were "sold" for $249, it's just at a price where apparently people (especially those who are not nearby him) are discouraged from the expense and logistics of trying to individually prosecute him in local small claims court. And, his operation hasn't been shown to be extensive enough to raise quite enough complaints for the FBI, etc. to move in. The case as mine is considered a "dispute" - however, what's needed here is some group or person to be able to "connect the dots" and realize that so many individual "disputes" against the same man
collectively add up to suggest something more insidious.
