west coast built in fridges west coast built-in fridges, WCBIF SCAM ALERT! They STEAL $2700 a pop and never think twice about it. Molalla Oregon
West Coast Built In Fridges stole $2715 and I am not the only one!
My parents own a small business and I am the first to support small businesses but this is not a reputable mom and pop shop. They will steal your money and not feel bad about it. They no longer have a paypal acount because paypal closed it for too many charge backs. I wish I would have read these reviews before I gave them $2715 on 1/21/14 and as of 8/11/14 no refrigerator, no refund, not even a call back or email response.
They will provide excuses and put you off past the time that your credit card company will reverse the charges. If you use them (and I truly hope you do not) check with your credit card company and see how long you have to reverse the charges and have the refrigerator delivered before then. If you do not have the refrigerator, reverse the charges and do not listen to their excuses and promises of it will be delivered in just another 3 weeks, or on Monday, or whatever they will say to put you past the point where they have your money and there is nothing you can do but sue them for it back.
Here is how it happened for me and after reading similar stories, I am not the only one. I have all the emails documented. I have too many calls between these that went either unanswered or to a voicemail box that is full. I would love to get together with others and have a class action lawsuit against WCBIF to get the $10's of thousands of dollars this company stole.
