Purchase Coby Tablet from HHGregg in December 2012 for my daughter for christmas, quit charging in may, 2013 and called Coby and they emailed me the information to send the coby back with $15.00 money order and they would either repair or replace with like or similiar Tablet. Well, now that we are calling to find out whats going on the phone numbers we have either not working or leave a message and the mail box is full. Never no answer. Called HHGreeg back and they say they have the same problem. They too can not get Coby to answer them. They have tried to help but as of today 8/l7/2013 we haven't heard a thing. Its sad that the companies selling the products can't even get a hold of the company they are selling for. After reading several reviews it seems this is a common pratice for Coby.. I will check to see if they cashed the Cashier's Check.. Probably so.. that should be consider fraud and then still have my tablet that I paid for... Man this keeps getting better.. Can some one please Help..!!!!!

#2 Consumer Comment

Same Scam, Different Consumer

AUTHOR: John - ()

This is an actual email received from Coby tech support when my daughters Kyros tablet failed and I followed all steps and verified with UPS tracking that Coby received my deffective merchandise and supplied a Ref#   Now they have gone off the grid.  No email reply backs, phone calls go no where but "Mbx's are Full" , not even their NY office is taking calls. Unit failed after 3 months of use, stay away from their products.
