Complaint Review: AutomotiveUSA
AutomotiveUSA Mike Mikowski Jeffery SchwartzJessica Jameson Scam Artists In Bussiness Since 2008 Las Vegas Nevada
My story pretty much starts the same way as everyone else's. I listed my 08 Dodge on craigslist to sell. Over the next few weeks I kept getting calls and messages on my phone from AutomotveUSA telling me about how they would sell my car. I finally picked up and spoke to a guy named Mark Mikowski. He talked a big game about how for $199, they would advertise my car in all different places (yahoo, autotrader, etc.) and if my car didn't sell within 90 days, they would refund my entire amount. It sounded good so I gave him my credit card information. No more information over the next weeks with any links or proof of advetising on any other site except their own. I tried calling back several times with no answer. At this point I knew I had been had so I finally did a search and lo and behold, ripoff reports all over the place. I then tried to contact them to signup and they finally gave an answer and when I told them what was going on, they assured me I would get my refund if my car didn't sell. I didn't believe them, but there was nothign else I could do. 90 days later I had to send them their notarized (cost $20) form and a few weeks later I got a check for $99, half the original amount. I called back, no answer. Called their signup line, they hung up on me. I did some digging and it seems these scumbags have been in business since 2008, probably even longer, under different aliases. This is copy and pasted from another report.

Lateral Media Begins Operations
January 12, 2009 5:00 PM ET
Lateral Media, Inc. ASND announced today that it has commenced operations and launched the Recycler Publishing Network of websites.
Jeffrey Schwartz is also the CEO of the current automotiveusa.com as well as TraderNet. How these scumbags have been in operation for over 6 years now and still continue to scam innocent hard working people is a travesty beyond belief. At this point the number of people scammed has to be tens of thousands. This is ridiculous.
