Complaints - German Audio Tech Abuses Customer!

AUTHOR: Normelyn - (Philippines)

 12-22-2011, 10:37 PM 540 M-Sport  Officially Welcomed to the 'Fest Location: Seattle, WA   Join Date: Apr 2004 Posts: 6,087   Mein Auto: 01' 540 M-Sport, Scuderia View My Garage I had a similar bad experience with GermanAudioTech with a radio display repair on my E39. Many attempts until they finally just gave me a different radio (in not as nice a condition). After 5 weeks, I just wanted a working radio with a perfect display...which I got...but two years later the display failed, and they refused to honor the "lifetime" warranty. This was mainly out of retribution, as they were upset I gave them a "neutral" rating on Ebay, which I felt was totally justified, based on the long wait (shipping my radio back and forth as he tried to fix it) and not getting my original radio back. I later learned (when he posted to my thread warning about him) he admitted mine was the first E39 radio he had attempted to fix...yet I purchased his services off an Ebay listing for E39 radio display repairs! So I was the "guinea pig" for him to learn the process on....sheesh.  __________________

If it is a different one, then BEWARE of the German Audio Tech in Long Beach, CA. They sold me a BMW OBC that was NOT fully functional, then ripped me off completely on their so-called "recycling process" for core credit. Paid me nothing for a unit - not even my lousy $7.50 in shipping, because the "glass was broken". Apparently all the capacitors, resistors, relays, circuit boards, and the casing are worthless? Just the glass has core credit value? They tout their "5 star eBay rating", but don't answer emails until after many are sent, then they insult you and act like the problem is all yours. The final straw was an obscene, vulgar, bigoted, just plain nasty reply to a bad rating on eBay.  They (German Audio Tech) posted a profanity-laced reply on eBay! I am not kidding. The guy (Chris) is savvy. He dragged-out the process to exceed eBay's Buyer Protection period, and I stupidly let him. His reply was so vulgar that eBay deleted it and sent him an official warning. They ought to ban the psycho. Do NOT buy from German Audio Tech in Long Beach CA (and probably in other CA cities - I imagine they have several bogus addresses for eBay so they can't be found.) Unless, of course, you like being abused, cursed, and ripped-off by sellers. In that case, these are your guys!  Last edited by G8tor; 02-24-2012 at 08:04 PM.   #7    05-13-2012, 01:09 PM jwcater  Registered User Location: Winston-Salem   Join Date: May 2012 Posts: 1   Mein Auto: 1999 528i View My Garage Name and address of german audio tech?

I know he gets deliveries there because he got my core and ripped me off. We really need to get the word out about this guy. I am going to paste the ebay reply he sent me after I rated him poorly. I hope it does not offend you, but you should know what kind of guy you are dealing with here. I would not be surprised if he is psycho. Good luck! See below his reply:

Dear wsgrrmc123,

I get a lot of messages, and I wish I never saw any of yours. I did nothing wrong at all, the part was tested before mailing and worked 100%. If you're bitching about a bulb burning out you might as well yell at the sky about it being blue. And don't send me trash expecting a large payout. You must be crazy.

My only polite reply? Read ALL of your messages - You are an A S S H O L E. You talk to me as if your boyfriend is cheating on you, you contracted AIDS, and lost your minimum wage job at the local sanitation plant. Maybe you should take up a career singing country music! Get lost.

Ebay Removed Feedback Because of Buyer's Policy Violations

AUTHOR: Robert - (United States)

I am responding on behalf of German Audio Tech. Anyone reading this can reach out to us and we can explain why Normelyn Mahone feels compelled to spew hatred online. The buyer has received (2) car radios from us which we refunded both in Full for them totalling nearly $500 and allowed them to keep the products sent. Why are they going to such great lengths to hurt us and damage our repuation? Maybe they are just crazy? Take what you read on the internet with a grain of salt. We try very hard to keep our customers happy, but don't appreciate people like Normelyn Mahone. This is not fair to us, considering she stole (2) car radios from us, $80 in our shipping expenses, and $500 in transactions from this Philippines buyer.

Feedbacks were removed due to buyer's policy violations on site. Also left feedback on transactions where the product was still in transit. Gamed eBay's returns system to hurt us. hank you,

R. Johnson

German Audio Tech - 177 Negative Feedback Revised on Seller's eBay Account

AUTHOR: Normelyn - (Philippines)

German Audio Tech's eBay Seller account shows multiple Neutral Feedback and 177 revisons for Negative Feedback. This means they convinced Buyers to revise Negative Feedback received to Positive Feedback. I left 2 Negative Feedbacks, which they conned me into accepting a revison. They said the Negative Feedback must be removed so that they could provide a refund or a return shipping label. I fell for their scheme as it appears other buyers were subjected to the same scheme. Thankfully eBay decided 2 cases in my favor and provided refunds. German Audio Tech is defintely not worth the aggrevation and does not stand behind their guarantee.

German Audio Tech's Untruthful Response to Complaint

AUTHOR: Normelyn - (Philippines)

Chris Cagnolatti operates German Audio Tech uses a UPS Store located at (((REDACTED))), Long Beach, CA 90802 to operate his business preying on uninformed consumers gulibilty. He lists his telephone phone number: (((REDACTED))) which accepts messages. He has no physical address listed. Most of what he says are untrue facts. I bought first radaio from him on eBay and it was defective. He refused to provide an International Return Shipping label or funds for return shipping. This was reason eBay case was deceided in my favor and refunded. A second radio had been ordered to replace the defective radio. He never shipped the replacement radio, and refunded an hour before eBay decided the case in my favor. He's made several untruthful and outrageous false claims against my integrity. He's threatned me saying he would report me to the nursing board for "my behavior." Funny, I''m not a nurse.  This bulls* has made me more determined to expose him.  I'm not a nurse! He's obviously found another woman with a similar name, deceided the person is me, and has stated I use an alias. Lol. The guy is a sociopath, and a sociopathic lier. If you Google his name (Chris Cagnolattii) he is associated somehow in the world of "Golf." I think he's an amatuer player. eBay has prohibted him from harrassing me further. All of his futher attempts to harrass or intimidate me will be aggressively pursued. I am determined to expose him unless he stops his vicious attacks on my character immediately. If not, he will become the subject of further complaints to Consumer Forums and will be exposed to members, friends and associates of the "Golfing World," and law enforcement.

German Audio Tech - Yet Another BMW Forum WARNING TO STAY AWAY!

AUTHOR: Normelyn - (Philippines)

1-12-2016, 06:05 PM#1 Sirgoin  Member   Join DateSep 2009LocationATXPosts27My Cars1999 M Coupe German Audio Tech Just a warning. This is another bad experience from German Audio Tech. I paid a premium for a "genuine" BMW CD43 head unit from them on Amazon. Afterward I saw a warning on here that they peddle Rover CD43's with M stickers on them. I amicably questioned them and they responded with the most vague divisive response and never answered when they were going to ship. They would respond with a one sentence absolutely ignorant response that would be vague and not answer any question. In one of the two responses they even said they did not know what a "sticker" is...  

I tried calling, tried emailing, the only response I ever received was through Amazon messaging where I learned they have a limited time to respond without any action taken. My guess it is to buy them more time. German Audio Tech might actually have things to sell and may actually do work for people but don't expect to have any confidence in their work (they don't uphold their "warranty" according to others) and in my experience their sales. I never received the radio nor did they ever ship it or even tell me that they had any intention of ever shipping it. I honestly believe they never had a CD43 to sell. If so, it was not genuine like their ad claimed...

I don't know how in today's internet world of businesses that these guys/this guy even stays afloat. I left a bad review on Amazon about them but I believe they know how to work the system and either get it removed or since they never sent the item, they can claim I'm not qualified for a review. I read on other forums they somehow have their bad reviews on eBay removed... But, that way they basically get a free $400 loan until the weeks it takes to get the money back with no harm to them...

Tl;Dr: I strongly advise you look elsewhere for your BMW audio needs, DO NOT use German Audio Tech. German Audio Tech is an untrustworthy, possibly scamming, shady business. Look around, there are plenty of other options.

Just to add, this is German Audio Tech out of Long Beach, CA. The have a website but do most their business on eBay I believe under the name germanaudiotech.

Bought 2 items from him and both had issues. Not catastrophic, but annoying -- like the wrong button labels on a rebuilt computer. Was only able to program it after looking at the instructions and using the right positions rather than what was written on the buttons. Said he'd send replacement buttons. Nope.

While allegedly replacing the buttons, I agreed with him to send several cores along with another unit for repair. The repair was done correctly, but he has claimed he didn't receive the cores (funny, they were in the same box as the unit he did repair) and stalled repeatedly after I providing proof of delivery at his request. Stalled me past the point where I could still complain on Ebay. So, while this repair works, he ripped me off for $100+ in core payments.

Now, after past ebay/paypal complaint periods, he's unresponsive. He must just chuckle knowing that he screwed another one and there's nothing eBay will do about it.

Oh well, at least the pixels work.

This Philippines eBay buyer scammed us out of (2) car radios totalling $500+ in losses

AUTHOR: Robert Johnson - (United States)

Unfortunately, this person lacks integrity and has scammed us out of $500 + loss of (2) products merchandise.

NORMELYN GAY PATAUEG, ISMAIL also goes under alias NORMELYN MAHONEY from Valencia, Philippines has falsely claimed they received an item not as described. We informed her how to resolve the issue without returning and she then insulted her mechanic calling him 'stupid' and an 'idiot' because he lacks her education level and makes less money than her. Very disrespectful. We asked the buyer to return the item for a refund or exchange. As a good seller we had open communication.

Normelyn then decided to buy a 2nd radio from our eBay store. In messages being read and reviewed by eBay they act as a vicitm, but in direct emails to us they are very threatning, venomous, demanding and harassing. They then turned hostile and decided to manipulate eBay Customer Support to force a full refund while allowing her to keep the $250 car stereo. We thought this was the end of our worries with this scam artist. This lady, once she manipulated eBay to a full refund, she then sends us an email off-site laughing at us calling us fools and demanding that if we want our merchandise back that we should transfer over $100+ in funds to her through Paypal (extortion).

Then, several weeks later, we then receive a new (second) dispute from this woman claiming she never received the second purchase, which she did! Because USPS to her country of the Philippines does not have delivery confirmation she knew that she could steal this second item making false statements to ebay claiming she still did not receive it. We decided at this point that the best course of action was to refund this buyer to avoid a defect. Again, after we refunded this buyer we received an email from them off-site again saying, quote: "You dumb s*. LOL". They then send an email 2 days later saying that the radio they received (proving they lied about not receiving it), is now not as described and wanted us to Paypal her $156 + a $200 convenience fee + other fees.

This lady is stalking us online through social media such as Twitter, etc. and is a registered nurse in Valencia, Philippines. She lacks integrity and is constantly harassing us in email messages. This needs to be known, because no one with this lack of integrity and decency should be a nurse.

He is such a rip off. I have had my car back to Him three different times. The first go around was over $1100.00 For a simple radio install with amp. Two days later My car started smoking around the dash area, Radio and all electronics FRIED. So Now he says It was the cars fault, Bad wiring harness. But I had it checked at a BMW dealer and they said it was due to Him or His shop wiring the amp into the wrong circuit, It overloaded it and started the melting of wires . I did take it back to Him and it was there over a month. When I finally got it back the radio / amp only worked for about 1 week. No smoke this time but now the digital gauges and lights are going on and off. I have talked to the beamer dealer and one of the mec hanics siad He was willing to testify to the fact that the car had been wired wrong by the GERMAN audio tech guys . I have also spoken with them and I am going to have to hire a attorney now to ever get them to FIX MY CAR . THE RIGHT WAY !!

STAY AWAY FROM GERMAN AUDIO TECH IN CA.
