"GOT BOOKS" IS A BIG RIPOFF! AND SHOULD BE CALLED "GOT MONEY"!! Bob Ticehurst who owns and runs the company, likes to appear as though he is running a non-profit business. He rarely lets people know he is a for profit company! He asks on his website and in his radio ads for people to donate books to his great causes! Bob, a once account and part-time books seller use to sell books he would pick up a the library sales online at Amazon.com.
Only to find out, he said, that he was making more money selling books than he was as an accountant! Bob quit his job as and accountant, only to become a fulltime book seller. Bob moved out of 3 apartments, he said, after his books took over the space. He started Got Books in 1999, and all of those like myself who donated to dear ole' Bob built him his own empire! I and all of you should be feeling pretty "hard done by" to say the least!
Bob Ticehurst, who parades himself around stating that the books will go to a great cause, is only telling you and I a half truth. The real truth is, that Bob takes all the books, and has each book checked on Amazon.com to see their value first. All books of value, (and believe me their are many!) GET LISTED ON AMAZON and the money made, goes right into his pocket!!! The books that have no worth on Amazon, go to his book stores, yes stores with a "s"! He has more than one!!! And he has plans of creating a chain!!!
Yes with all your hard earned money that you paid for when you buy a books than donate them to him!!!! We have help him build his empire!! What company do you know wouldn't love to not have to pay for their inventory!! Bob Ticehurst is just such a company!! He gets all his inventory absolutely for FREE!!! From all us GOOD HEARTED people who DONATE to his so called "BOOKS FOR CHARITY" ! Only problem is the hand out in this "CHARITY MONEY MAKING SCHEME" is Bob Ticehurst's!!!
Oh, not to say he does not give books to teachers or troops, the books he gives are the one he has not worth for, one that are not wortha dime on Amazon.com and since he has millions donated he can spare donating to others. This works for him and he is well aware of it!! He planned it this way, he knows if he says a percent of what is donated goes to charity, all the more fools like us will keep donating and more fools like us will begin donating. This way he can keep a constant inventory availble to grow his empire with!!! I know I am no longer in the business of making dear ole' Bob rich!!! Wake up people and smell the coffee!! Make yourselves rich!! NOT BOB TICEHURST!! He should be reported to the BBB!!!!!!!!!!
