Buyers Beware! This is a big ripoff company called Abes of Maine! They are a Bait & Switch operation!

Abes of Maine, they run a scheme called “Predatory free capitalism” it's a terrible inhumane deplorable practice, they're going to sucker you in with low prices and then they're going to rip you apart and then they going to upsell you on things that should of been involved. Abes of Maine is what’s wrong with society. If you’re wondering what is wrong with society, this is one company that is using deplorable’s business practices to do whatever they want and rip people off! There are so many complaints on this business, it is unbeliveable they are still in business.

Don't buy from Abes of Maine, these guys are a bait & switch operation, they're method of business is scheming people with extra fees, they call to verify your card but also they will add charges and bill you anyway without notification even if you decline to accept the item, they are ruthless and they have a department for chargeback, they apparently have a lot of angry customers that have declined payments where they are horrible over the phone and have the worst record on for online reviews. Yes they will think of any reason to raise the price after you made the purchase. I mean seriously read the online reviews on this company; they have customer after customer of their shrewd service on a host of complaints all over the internet on this scheme operation. Buyers beware, do buy from these people. Worst experience ever is with this company, had to fight my bank to get my money back and to see how they responded to the bank, yes they lied to my bank and they wouldn't return my calls or emails to them, even their supervisor.

Yes I was a victim of this horrible business of their scheme business practice, so I am posting information allover online to inform people this is a scam business. abesofmaine.com/LG_Signature_C7_Series_OLED65C7P_-_65_OLED_Smart_TV_-_4K_UltraHD_1031760.html?l=Criteo&?utm_source=Criteo&utm_campaign=Retargeting&utm_medium=CPC

Stay away from Abes of Maine; seriously don't buy from these people.

Abes of Maine, cannot be trusted

AUTHOR: - ()

I ordered camera from Abe's of Maine. Received email order confirmation. I also received email to call 1-800-992-2237 ext. 272 to talk to Jeff. I did. Jeff asked me what battery pack I want to buy with camera. I told him that I can use battery from my older Sony camera. I also ask him question about camera I ordered. It was just simple question "Is the camera I ordered International version or version manufactured for US market" (since this is not mentioned on company web page). He obviously did not like my question and start to argue with me. As the result he canceled my order for no reason. Very unpleasant experience.

Beware beware beware of Abes of Maine they're real crooks

AUTHOR: - ()

As many of the reviews state I purchased a LG 4k television online. The next day I received a phone call advising I had purchased the European model which would not work in the US. They tried to convert me to the US model which would work and cost $ 400 more. All of this was nothing more than BS and a bait and switch scheme. Of course I canceled. This outfit is dishonest and should not be dealt with no matter what price they might offer. I am sure they will do anything to cheat a customer. BUYER BEWARE.

Con- artest Abes of Maine is. Beware of these people

I purchased a LG OLED65C6P for $2299 (no charge for freight) 5-17-17 at a Memorial day sale. The next morning I received a call from Steven to call him at 800-992-2237 ext 272. He told me that I had ordered an European model and that the USA model is $2999. I said, "No, I did not order a European model and that I am not going to pay $2999." I found the advertisement and it was still current on the internet for $2999 and listed two specs for it that were both USA Specs. I called back up and asked for the manager. I said that I am looking at the ad and it is a US model and I want it for $2299. I was told that the best I could do was $2499. I said, "No." I want the one they are advertising right now. They finally conceded and said that it will be $2299 but they are not delivering it free but will charge $290 due to insurance on the delivery. I said, "No," and said, "I will do all in my power to expose Abe's of Maine as a dishonorable company." My receipt is copied off the screen at the end of the sale. I did not see a way to print it. I am sure now that that was on purpose on the part of Abe's.

Beware of Abes of Maine they're real scammers

AUTHOR: - ()

I bought from Abe’s because I had dealt with them satisfactorily long ago - regret it. Same thing happened to me. Ordered a camera and they called and said I order European model (no mention on the ad). I could get the US model for 150 more. Scam. Then, when they re-did the order, they left out the suite number for delivery. This is when I found out their customer service is as bad as their orders. Even though I was calling in the middle of the day (NJ time) they would not answer. Finally I called sales -of course they answered immediately. After three forwards, they hung up. Luckily FedEx is on the ball and called about the suite. Camera came packed horribly but I know I'll never get any satisfaction from Abe’s. I'll have to hope it works. I wish I would have ordered from someone reputable.

Abes of Maine a real scam artist company. Buyer Beware

AUTHOR: - ()

Ordered a Samsung UN75J6300 75-Inch Class Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - Jeff tried to upsell me from a commercial model to a consumer model. I was having it professionally installed and called my installation expert who contacted Samsung who said that was false. This is a consumer model. Free shipping is not free. You receive an initial invoice with free shipping and you get an email to call Jeff to confirm your order. Jeff informed me I had to pay freight insurance of several hundred dollars. That is not free shipping.
