PUBLIC NOTICE: To date in 2016 I have lost $30,237.72 resulting from the purchase of a Tech Craft Group, LLC cell phone accessory dealership. The company is owned by Mr. Ron Allen of 2618 Battleground Ave. in Greensboro, NC 27408.
In January of 2016 I was contacted by Tech Craft company representatives recruiting dealers in my area. They were very nice people and presented an exciting story that projected a lucrative return on investment and requiring minimal part time effort. After their many calls and my due diligence, I withdrew $35,000 out of my retirement fund and invested in a 50 location route. I was told the product was superior to that of other competitors in the industry.
The product arrived separately from various plants (all in China). It was all loose in boxes and I soon discovered it was not special and there is considerable competition. [continued below]....
I was specifically told when doing my due diligence that the displays averaged sales of 2 units per day. The program has you service the stores once every two weeks. My first visit I had to pick up 11 of the displays. Only 9 of the 50 accounts had sold anything at all, while 31 sold $0. Two weeks later and the results were the same except I lost 30 more of the accounts due to no sales. What I found is competitors had displays out there already and they were selling virtually the same product for, in most cases, half the cost and retail that I was selling the Tech Craft product for.
I felt like I was misled to say the least and requested a refund from Tech Craft. At least a refund of the money paid for the cost of the product. After a month and a half of my relentless contacting Ron Allen, he agreed to take all of the product back for $9,800 (less than cost). I delivered it to him in April of 2016. It is now November and to date I have received only $2,200 from Mr. Allen. This after numerous calls, texts and emails. After 7 months he still owes me $7,600 on the product I returned to him per our agreement (returned at a discount). I understand business and the potential risks of investing. All I asked from Tech Craft was to allow the return of the product, which he did, and for Mr. Allen to honor our agreement. Even if I get payment for the product I returned to Tech Craft I still will have a $20,437 business loss. I simply have asked Mr. Allen to honor our agreement to refund me for this product I have returned and he has in his possession.
Feel free to contact me by email to ask questions about my experience with Ron Allen and Tech Craft.
