Kars-4-Kids - Kars4Kids IS a scam, Don't Donate to them, I wish I would have donated to the local charity Lakewood New Jersey
*General Comment: Same experience
After the transaction was done I received the travel voucher (another scam) but no receipt. I contacted the person (by email since they would not return any of my calls) that origionally contacted me (by email). I asked for them to send me a receipt from the actual sale of the vehicle. I was told that I could use the emailed confirmation as my receipt. I explained that the confirmation would only get me a $500.00 tax write-off therefore I needed the receipt for the acutal sale.
After several back and forth emails - all of them refusing to acknowledge that the vehicle sold for more than $500.00 - I finally sent a very scathing email telling them what a scam they are I got back this response "It was sold for $300". I still insisted on a receipt and to this day never got one. I do not understand why they refuse to give me a receipt for the sale of the vehicle. Something really smells about all of this and I honestly believe they are lying to me.
I still have all the communications from them should any one be interested in them.
Also - that travel voucher is just one more of this organizations scams. I have spent hours trying to get my "free" vacation. I have given up since there is very little chance I will get any one of the six places I picked from.
I can not tell you how disappointing it has been to deal with this so called charitable organization. I wish I would have do my research up front - from all the complaints about this organization I would have never done business with them. Giving to charity is supposed to feel good. Nothing about dealing with them felt good.
DO NOT DONATE TO THIS ORGANIZATION - there are so many other much worthy charities1
