Buyer beware!!!!! Total scam artist!!!!!!!

I purchased machines from canada vending at the Calgary business trade show. I was lied to about EVERYTHING!!!

Said locations were guaranteed. They weren't!

Said the machines would make over 200 per month. They made less than 50 on average!

Said machines were in stock when i paid in full and took months to get.

Craig Atkinson is a scam artist! stay away!

Ajay Rana

AUTHOR: Canada Vending - (Canada)

 Ajay Rana, Canada Vending will proceed in every legal means possible to protect the integrity of my company. You bought 2 machines from a trade show. We provided 2 locations as promised. 1 week after you got your machines you tell us you want to sell your machines. We said as it states in the contract that we dont offer refunds. Then you say the machines dont work. So we have gothingne to the mfg and they agreed to pay the shipping both ways to help you with the machines if they really dont work as yolu are the first to say that to us. Then you go to the Better Business Bureu and file a complaint, we have done everything we can to help someone that doesnt want to work the business. You now state we are a rippoff. We are going to take every legal avenue we can Ajay. You start to play the Iam a new immigrant to Canada angle. Thats not going to work. This is unacceptable. Govern your self accordingly

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

The Canadian Locators Group Jaimie Zanoni

AUTHOR: Canada Vending - (Canada)

 Sad Customer we find it this to be a bogus complaint. Our company takes pride in our business and we find this repulsive. When Canada Vending fisrt hired a locator through a company called the Canadian Locators Group out of Toronto. We got a call from a man named Alex Tarna at 647 242 7045 and he seemed like a professional man with a great company. He said to us that he had a great Locator name Jaimie Zanoni but he also goes by a name of Julius or Frank...His phone number is 647 200 9119. When we first met Jaimie he seemed like a nice guy who knew how to locate but we quickly learned that that was not the Case. It would be impossible for any of the customers to be making 50.00 per month as they never even got locations from Jaimie Zanoni that were VALID, Most Locations in our business want a commission. This locator with out our knowledge or permission used a charity called the Burn Society to try and get locations. It turns out that the locations did there homework and felt very uncomfortable about the legitimacy of this so called Charity and said no to a machine being installed. We quickly realized that we could not have this person locate for our customers.  Jaimie would demand money upfront before the customers had even installed there machines now we know why. So Canada Vending is out Thousands of dollars because of this and we now have a fantastic team taking care of customers from Calgary. So how could they be earning 50.00 per month  BECAUSE THIS IS A BOGUS COMPLAINT. The other thing is Canada Vending does not promise what you can earn from a location. Its impossible to know untill you tried out the location first.. AGAIN A BOGUS COMPLAINT. All customers have machines again BOGUS COMPLAINT. The Canadian Locators Group never offered to fix the problem as they say they do on there website. Jaimie Zanoni just took the money and started Slandering my company because we fired him......  Canada Vending has had to spend thousands of dollars to get its customers the great locations they deserve. When we thought we had reputable company doing that for us. So whoever is saying we are a scam artist we are going to work very hard to find the DNS codes for the email that was send to this website..  So whoever wrote this BOGUS REPORT we will find out and take the appropriate legal remedies as we se fit...
