I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with www.LiveAuctioneers.com. They worked with one of their affiliates to scam Thousands of dollars from me. I have recieved absolutely no goods or services from anyone involved in this dispute. LiveAuctioneers.com worked with Lazarus Financial Group and Western Asset Reserve to call and harrass myself and associates over "bids" that we never placed on this website. Stay FAR AWAY from LiveAuctioneers.com or be subject to over $5000 in scammed losses.

Unlicensed Business!

2nd floor 
New York, NY 10001 

I called to file a complaint with the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs only to learn that this is an unregistered business.  They have no record of the company at that address.  Definitely no auctioneer at that address.  

You can file a complaint online at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dca/html/resources/complaint.shtml

Research Companies BEFORE you interact with them!

AUTHOR: LiveAuctioneers.com is a scam - (United States of America)

It has been six months since I made the mistake of using my email address at http://www.LiveAuction.... It has been over a month since I had a collection agency give me three days to give them $6000 to settle a http://LiveAuctioneers... profile. In no time in between and in no time since has LiveAuctioneers or Western Asset Reserve contacted me to update me on where my $6000 has gone and what exactly I was being charged for, and yet I still can't access my http://www.liveauction... profile to use that taken amount as a site credit.

        http://LiveAuctioneers... has stated on a BBB response that they take no responsibility for what happens on their website with their affiliates. I find this practice inconsistent with other online auctioneers. I have been an A+ Ebayer for over 7 years now, with a 100% rating with some 100 dealings with others buyers and sellers. I couldn't imagine Ebay just stepping out of a situation to leave you to fend for yourself against bully collectors and unresponsive companies.

     I will continue to update the internet consumer community about my dealings with these online businesses. Six months after creating a http://www.LiveAuction... profile, I have received no merchandise, I don't know what charges the collection agency were taking from me, where the money was going, where the money is? I had to pay $6000 dollars for bids I did not place on this website. Imagine a $6000 charge for something you didn't do and you don't even know what the money is for? And no one from these companies contact you, except a collection agency(you can imagine exactly what this guy sounded like and the way he talked to you!)! And you have three days to pay him or else! This is exactly what I've gone through.

    All the companies I have dealt with in this ordeal have a F rating at the BBB. BBB couldn't even contact Western Asset Reserve for weeks, no response. Just feel that fear as a consumer!

    You can make your own decision about these businesses. All I can do is tell you my personal experiences and hope no one else has to live through a tragedy such as this

BBB finally received word back from Western Asset reserve on their part of this scam. Their official response was that the reason they scammed me for $6000 on www.LiveAuctioneers.com is because of my friend choice. They seriously said I need to pick better friends.??? They scammed me because of my friend choice? We didn't make these bids!

They are internet SCAM COMPANIES!
