Attention!
I am a computer service shop owner. What I've seen on liquidation.com and govliquidation.com was amazing, all looking good. But you know what? They are not!!

liquidation.com and govliquidation.com is a huge RIP-OFF. THE PRODUCTS ARE NOT LIKE THEY STATED. They're so cheap, they hire only one customer REP in Scottsdale AZ. IT takes forever for them to respond to our questions.

Their STAFF at Govliquidation.com (Military bases) ACT like we're begging them for the products. They are very RUDE to us! INSPECTION??? FORGET IT! It is not EASY to do an inspection!

BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BUSINESS.

These people are too greedy to do business (and so is the Government).

ALL OF US should start buying new products from CHINA. They're much cheaper with better quality.

FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN.

Much APPRECIATED!!!

Thieves and liars

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

govliquidation.com is not a government agency, they are a goverment contractor hired to liquidate assests from the DRMS.

The problem is, nobody is monitoring their activities. The employees steal from the lots that they are contracted to liquidate. When a bulk lot comes into their warehouse the employees pick out whatever they want and sell the rest and claim they sold the whole lot.

I know because it happened to me. I won a lot reported to contain 195 items. After I got home, I found they shorted me 25 of the items. When they stole the items they did not realize they had sequential serial numbers. The ones with the serial numbers missing from my lot started showing up for sale on ebay the following week.

#7 UPDATE EX-employee responds

The company is driven by GREED & LIES, I know I founded it!

AUTHOR: Billy - (U.S.A.)

Liquidation.com and govliquidation.com are driven by greed and greed alone.

I should know, I founded the company in 1994.

The current CEO answered an ad in the Wall Street Journal in early 1999 looking for venture capital...

He lied his way in then and continues to lie today.

After personally being responsible for the company winning the largest auction contract in history to auction all of the DOD surplus, my reward was to be terminated "for cause" in May of 2001.

The company was able to swindle, steal, take back over 2 million shares of my stock since I was being fired on trumped up charges for pennies. Addining insult to injury I never made a dime of the DOD contract while the Execs line thier pockets every day.

Shortly after being awarded the DOD contract they were audited for fraud trying to bill money losing ventures in France & Germany to the government.

The company recently went public LQDT with todays stock quote of $13.96 X just the 2+ million shares they stole for firing the founder..

Image they fired the FOUNDER then rewrite the company history, how it was founded, etc. to swindle the public out of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Just google: Billy Burke founder liquidation.com

How do you answer and ad in the newspaper, take control of a company, fire the founder of the company as his reward for bringing hundreds of millions of dollars, swindle him out of his stock, then take the company public stating it was their idea...

Anyone have any ideas what I should do>

Probably not a Government site

AUTHOR: Jill - (U.S.A.)

These are probably not governmentrun sites. If they were they would end in .org. Most likely these auction site are set up by indivual set up to make you think they are government run site to suck people in to think you are getting a good bargain and to scam you!

If you truly want a goernment auction site only go to ones that end in .org.

Government Liquidation Seems Like a Scam

AUTHOR: Tony - (U.S.A.)

I recently registered to bid on items on this auction site. It appears that the bids shown are very high for the items shown. I know for a fact that an individual can get these items for the same or less than they show as the high bid, especially since it is not certain as to the condition of the item. I suspect there is some "shill" bidding to artificially inflate the price. IT also seems odd that there is a link to shippers that are tied in to the auction, and charge very high fees to have the items shipped.
If there is something you see on this site that is of interest to you, it might be a good idea to see if a similar item is being offered on Ebay or other classified. Chances are you will be better assured of it's condition and the price will be less. I would stay away from this site.
