I'm not going to even bother telling about the numerous times they've scammed me!! Let's just start with the Ipad I bought off of their website at shopgoodwill.com. After winning the bid, they ship me this thing that's got an ICloud lock on it!! Now, for those of you who may not be tech savvy, what this means is that this Ipad isn't worth diddly!! I can't access anything on it....no web, no apps, NOTHING!! It's utterly useless!! 

Now...if they had said in the description that it was locked through someone else's account, that would be MY fault for buying it. But no mention of it being locked was anywhere in the description!! So I'm just stuck with a useless Ipad, unless I need something to use as a paperweight. It's a very real possibility that this thing may be STOLEN!

I don't even see how this company can call itself a charity, since while it may help a few people with disabilities, it's nothing compared to the amount of revenue generated! The next paragraph is from the Better Business Bereau's website: 

"This charitable organization either has not responded to written BBB requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. [continued below]....

..... Charity participation in BBB review is voluntary. However, without the requested information, it is not possible to determine whether this charity adheres to all of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. The BBB encourages charities to disclose accountability information beyond that typically included in financial statements and government filings, in order to demonstrate transparency and strengthen public trust in the charitable sector.

The BBB reports on charities and determines if they meet 20 voluntary standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals, and governance. The BBB does not evaluate the worthiness of the charitable program."

I simply can't understand why the Consumer Protection Act doesn't apply to organizations such as this!! Why aren't these people held accountable?
