Same old saga of a company and/or individuals ripping people off on eBay.
Long story short:
I ordered an item (a magazine) on eBay from Apropos Auctions that only cost a lousy $9.00. They cashed my check but never sent my item. I tried resolving this matter through eBay's Safe Harbor and by e-mailing the company directly but to no avail.
I even have e-mails from the company offerring me e refund since I never received the item but then they started toying with me in their e-mails.
One of their many e-mails stated the following, "If your order doesn't arrive by the end of this month, I would be willing to refund you."
The order never arrived.
I advised them of this and they then sent me an e-mail that said, "If the magazine is returned to me I would be happy to refund you."
This of course infuriated me because I had no magazine to return.
Initially, they decided to blame it on the post office and then they said they finally mailed my item via USPA Media Mail but they would not tell me the date.
I have dated and printed e-mails pages and pages long with more detail; too much to include here.
After researching them via the internet I found several complaints to Attorney Generals in various states as well as several different e-mail address and mailing addresses. I could never find a phone number that worked, however.
I mailed my payment to 200 Pacific Coast Hwy, Ste 137, Huntington Beach, CA 92648 and the initial e-mail I used to communicate with the company was email@example.com
I want this company to be held accountable and to refund all the people they have ripped off. I could care less about the lousy $9.00 I lost. It is now the principle of the thing.
