I believe that I have been the victim of an internet scam involving, possibly, 2 men. The business that I paid is called International Business Supply, LLC.
What you need to know is that Howard Wexelman is a partner along with James "Jim" Mc Neil/McNeil in INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC SUPPLY LLC out of one of the towns that Wexelman lives in, Boca Raton, FL.
Specifically, that would be: International Electronic Supply LLC, Managing Member/Managers~HOWARD WEXELMAN 2407 NW 49TH LANE, BOCA RATON FL 33431; 1-561-702-6969, 1-561-995-6969; JAMES L MCNEIL 11413 LEMMOND ACRES DRIVE CHARLOTTE NC 28227; 1-704-573-1897.
You should also know that I placed an order with Jim McNeil/Howard Wexelman/IES on 2/19/11 for some cellular phones. All of my documents, receipts, emails and records state that I paid IES. IES is Wexelman/McNeil. Wexelman is "president" of IES.
I have a copy of their "Price List" with McNeil's address and with Wexelman's address on it. If anyone wants a copy, PM me. The prices, as well as the two men involved, are unbelievable.
McNeil has continually stated that I would receive my order by, or before, 3/18/11. Right up until 3/27, yesterday morning when he stopped communicating with me.
I still have not received my order.
McNeil and Wexelman, dba IES, will not voluntarily initiate a refund for the product that they never sent to me. I now believe that McNeil never intended to send anything to me.
He floats some enticing numbers out there as bait, then comes the switch which is a mixture of shipping excuses, tsunami delays, volcano fly-arounds, and shipper mistakes which essentially are stalling tactics all while using other peoples money for free. He is an internet scammer, I believe, through and through.
Wexelman, also involved with a myriad of other companies, denies any knowledge of McNeil running this scam on me. THEY ARE PARTNERS in this crime. How do you NOT know what scams your partner is involved in, especially after some of these posts on McNeil? Answer: You DO know and are equally complicit. Legally, I might add, too.
Mc Neil/McNeil (he spells it both ways to avoid anyone googling ALL of his scams, I believe) now refuses to voluntarily refund the purchase price of my order with IES. Wexelman, as McNeil's partner in IES, also refuses to comply voluntarily and has emailed me such.
I now have to initiate legal action against them in order to get our money back. These are the types of people that give internet commerce a bad rap. I believe that these people prey on the smaller, weaker and poorer of the world thinking that we will never fight back. They picked the wrong guy to steal from this time.
INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC SUPPLY LLC is a scam operation as far as I am concerned. I don't know what that makes a company called Computalk that Wexelman is president of. Or, for that matter, companies by the names of Redpath Investment Corporation, Grand Estates Inc., and The Grand Group, Inc., all of which have Wexelman's involvement, if not his "management". And then there is a company by the name of Capital Formation that McNeil has his name on. I would advise everyone to stay as far away from all of these "companies" as they possibly can. Warn your friends, fellow employees and neighbors, too.
I would hate to see what happened to me happen to anyone else.
Jim James McNeil Mc Neil is a scammer of the lowest sort, I believe, and it is a shame that I have to waste any more of my time or money in order to prove it and recoup our loss. And if Jim McNeil is a scammer, then I believe that that makes Howard Wexelman a "scammer jammer", or one who attempts to complicate the actual scam. When he goes to jail, he will be known as the scammer jammer in the slammer. That, or just plain Pam.
I have given these two "men" every opportunity to do the right thing and voluntarily
return our payment that we made to them. They have turned me down every time. And I still have not received my order.
I borrowed the money to pay IES from my retirement account and it is a lot of money, to me. It is a drop in the bucket for guys who own homes like these:
It makes you wonder whose money it was that actually paid for these men's houses.
And, it is internet lowlifes and trolls like these two men, it seems, that make life suck sometimes. Once in awhile, one of them will step up and do the right thing. I am not holding my breath.
Prove me wrong, Howie/McNeil/IES. As the managing partners of International Electronic Supply LLC, return our money, voluntarily. Now.
