I received a call to list my car with the Specialty Auto Network.
James GAVE ME A 90-DAY GUARANTEE THAT I WOULD NOT BE CHARGED UNLESS MY CAR SOLD THROUGH THEIR NETWORK, AND SOLD FOR AT LEAST THE PRICE I WAS ASKING. He actually told me to list it for $2,000 more than what I had it listed for on autotrader.com.
James pretty much guaranteed they would sell my car within 2 weeks.
I gave them a "recorded" authorization to charge my card....but it was supposed to be IF AND WHEN MY CAR SOLD. It was a WIN-WIN DEAL, for me, AS I WOULD NOT BE CHARGED UNLESS THEY SOLD THE CAR, AND FOR THE PRICE I WAS ASKING!
I received my credit card statement and I find a charge for $399. This charge I am now disputing with my credit card company, as the Specialty Auto Network has refused to refund the $399, since they say "the car sold.
It doesn't matter to them that it did not sell through them. They KNOW it did not sell through them. They DENY their LIES.
The Specialty Auto Network is A SCAM. DON'T LIST YOUR CAR WITH THEM. THEY CALL PEOPLE WHO ARE LISTED ON AUTO-TRADER. Auto-trader is the organization that located my buyer, a banker here in Colorado, who will verify that he found my car through www.autotrader.com. Don't trust Specialty Network's smooth-talking, LYING salespeople. List your car with auto-trader.
I am contacting the Better Business Bureau of Omaha, NB, to report this organization. It is Specialty Auto Network, 3012 N. 93rd St., Omaha, NB, 68134-4716. 1 800 576 1640 or 402-934-7880. I will also be contacting eBay, and telling them that they need to take this network off their site, to protect their own credibility.
