South Bay Office Products, Inc Office Supply Scam Artists in Deerfield Beach, Florida
*Consumer Comment: shipping
My story is the same as others I have read on this website. I was told that our Director of Finance referred the caller for me to purchase office supplies at bargain prices. The sales pitch was compelling during tough economic times: the caller was retiring to south Florida and needed to liquidate current inventory. The prices quoted seemed like great deals so I ordered a few items. Upon hanging up the phone, I called our Director to learn that she had no conversation with anyone regarding office supply purchases. I attempted to phone the caller but the number had been blocked.
Fast forward a couple of weeks. Five LARGE boxes of office supplies arrived by the gross! No invoice was included but sent one month later for $9000. The prices charged were no bargains but far more than paid at our local vendor. I called the phone number on the invoice but got only a recorded voice. By the time "Jenny" returned my call, the $200 shipping charge had been removed and the total invoice amount was slashed in half - all without any discussion. Deception, a blocked phone and FAX number. The clues were adding up that I had been scammed!
Thanks to those of you who have shared your stories to provide some common ground and direction for others like me. According to the FTC, the scammed merchandise does not have to be returned nor the invoice paid by the victim of such activity. If you have been a victim of this company, I urge you to share your story. Together, we can help reduce the number of future victims that fall prey to those at South Bay Office Products who clearly have no moral compass or code of conduct.
