2muchstuff4me/Brian Elenson Criminal/Thief/Liar/Should Be in Jail Oceanside New York
Where to start with this criminal enterprise? Elenson is a thief, a liar, an abrasive personality and he should be in jail.
First, he came to our house prior to us engaging him and assured us he had an 8,000 person mailing list and could sell everything. In the end, he only sold a very small portion of the items we had. He left the vast majority of things behind unsold - including several things that I sold on Craigs List within 2 hrs the next morning.
Contract called for him to put everything unsold back in its place and leave the house clean. Not only was nothing put back in its place, but we had to clean up his and his crews' coffee cups and lunch containers from throughout our house. I won't go into detail on his crew because they are adequately (and accurately) described in other reviews on this site.
Some of the things that he did sell were practically given away - or so he claims. $7,000 office suite sold for $300. $4000 wicker outdoor furniture set sold for $250. $3000 bedroom set sold for $200. Did he sell them or did they end up at his bi-weekly tag sale at his warehouse in Oceanside? Tough for us to say since we moved out of state.
Then there were the 40 or so items that disappeared with absolutely no accounting from him. He left a list of 4 things sold and $500 in our refrigerator. After insisting that we leave during the sale, he actually left our house before we got back at the end of the sale. When I tried contacting him repeatedly the next day to get an accounting of items sold and amounts they were sold for, he finally replied and told me to have all future contact through his attorney. Based on the responses I received from his attorney, Jeff Gold, two things are clear: (1) this is not the first time Elenson has done this and (ii) his attorney shares many of the same unseemly personality traits that Elenson possesses. We have filed a police report and are pursuing criminal action related to the missing items that are unaccounted for.
Then there were the items that he didnt sell for which he still deducted his commission. Throughout the setup process we had told him that some items would be coming out of the sale and others would go in. His response "No problem, things come in and go out all the time". We had one fairly big item that we sold to a close family friend. When he showed up he was pissed off and said he had a buyer for that item. You guessed it. He deducted 30% commission for the item. And at what sales price? He used a price he completely made up that was 2x what we actually sold the item for and 40 percent more than what he told me one week earlier he would ask for the item at the sale. Guess its easy to say you would have sold something when someone else actually sold it (and you left behind a houseful of items that you couldnt sell).
We also had numerous reports from tag sale customers that he was incredibly rude, obnoxious, offensive, arrogant and abrasive to most of the customers there. He drove many customers way with his treatment of them. Again, is this so items wouldnt be sold at our tag alse and could be sold at a later date at 3535 Lawson Blvd in Oceanside????
Bottom line, we "sold" or somehow no longer have about 40 items. We got an accounting for only a handful. Those items were sold at ridiculously cheap prices. Then he deducted commission for a big item (and a few other items) that he didnt sell and left us with a house full of items he couldnt sell (even though I sold a few rather easlity the next day- so they were saleable) and a bunch of his trash, all of which we had to dispose of in the 2 days before we moved out of state.
This guy is a criminal. He should be investigated by the Nassau District Attorney's Office and he should be in jail. Personally I am making it my crusade to see if I can make that happen. Nonetheless, beware if you choose to use him to conduct your tag sale. I can assure you you will be sorry!
