UBID Complaint - Refurbished computer purchase
I too won a bid for a HP tower computer only to find that, after powering it on, I had nothing but problems. I returned it to UBID and called my credit card company. When contacting UBID, their representative sounded bored and tired. I asked her if that was true and she actually said "yes". They did credit my card so I have the refund but they did not even offer to send me a new computer. I won 3 auctions, after this one, only to be told that someone else out bid me (same amount). I also had 2 auctions, even though it indicated that there was an hour left, end in 5 minutes after my highest bid. It appears that they close out auctions early if the bid isn't what they want it to be. Perhaps they are doing their own bidding to jack the price up. Try that on E-Bay and they won't let you do business with them. Remember, "if you buy cheap, you get cheap". Let the buyer beware!
