US BUILDINGS RIPPED ME OFF FOR $9000 & THIS IS HOW THEY DO BUSINESS

A salesman from US Buildings (USB) contacted me late Fri 8-5-11 following an inquiry I placed on Buyerzone. He, Andrew "Jack" Marcus, told me he had pre-engineered clearance bldgs he could sell way below the value due to a dealer out of business. He said USB was shipping them out the next morning for auction, & it would cost USB $4000 per bldg. He claimed he was a VP, & had to get rid of these bldgs because of inventory tax charged. He told me he could cut a bldgs in half (I put on buyerzone that I wanted 2 garages - 25' x 40' ea). I told Jack that I had just started looking & was not ready to make a decision. He said that he had a 20' x 98' bldg that was going to auction, worth $70,000, shipping costs 10%- $7,000 plus tax, but could sell me the bldg way below value w/no tax (since he could put it on "Arizona" paper), free shipping & free blueprints. 
He insisted that all he needed was a name to put on the bldg & pressured me, stating I could cancel w/in 3 days & get my money back. He made numerous fraudulent claims to me during this time about USB, the bldg, how it would look, the costs & time to erect it, etc. I told him I was not sure this was what I wanted, but he assured me that he just needed my name to hold this bldg to save USB money & that I could cancel the order within 3 days for any reason & not pay anything. He told me he needed to label my bldg immediately that evening so that it would not get sent to the auction early next morning & rushed me to sign the order & give him my credit card to hold the bldg. This was done about 10:15 pm. 
The next morning (7:45 am) I emailed him to let him know that the bldg he wanted me to buy, was not what I wanted. He told me that he was in Arizona (which conflicted with what he said last night) & on his way out to sell the rest of the clearance bldgs.  After I stated concerns/changes about the bldg & complaints found that morning about USB on the internet, he told me he would call me Mon am after the office re-opened re: my order, stating I could still cancel if I wanted to, but tried to talk me into the sale, even sending me a list of Satisfied Customers. 
I emailed him & faxed him a cancellation notice the next morning, Sunday 8-7-11 (2 days later). I called USB on Mon at 9:04 am & left a message w/ Shay (answering service) cancelling my order. I received an email from Jessica w/USB re:my order & sent her an email (which she told me she forwarded to management) cancelling my order. She told me that I needed to contact my salesperson, which I told her I did, but Jack had not returned my calls.

She told me that I needed to contact my salesperson, which I told her I did, but Jack had not returned my calls.
Someone else from USB, Derrick, contacted me & offered me the same bldg for $26,000, w/free shipping & blueprints. Later that day, Derrick called me & told me that the bldg he was selling me was going to be shipped for auction the next morning & I could get it for $16,500 if I gave him my credit card then.
Jack sold me something different than what he put on the order.  The Quonset hut on the invoice has 1 wall (can't be 16' high if 20' w), incomplete & is not what he described. I never received a copy of the back of the order, as it declares & it was never reviewed.  Blueprints were not custom, as billed. Jack overcharged/gouged me on the cost of this hut (valued apprx $9000 ea). On the website, they use 9 other companies logos, which is believed to be done w/out authority- Army & Marines.  Their list of Satisfied Customers is incorrect.  They have 170 complaints on one BBB site & more on others.

I am in the process of seeking out those who also have been scammed & defrauded by them.  Sounds like you have also been wronged by them.  Are you willing to share your experience w/ me either on this site or directly to my personal email address, which is eileenayork@comcast.net?

 WE NEED TO FILE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST US BUILDINGS

So what is stopping you from hiring an attorney and filing a lawsuit against them?  You are correct-they should be sued!

Get on it!  Why do you need SOMEONE ELSE to file the suit?
