Tiger Direct Complaint - Worst Rip-Offs on the Net Today !
I bought an Athlon 3200XP Processor and an AMD Motherboard from Tiger Direct.
Both were RETAIL priced , no OEM< versions!
Naturally both were 'backordered' AFTER they said on the phone that they were 'in stock'. They charged my credit card the day they took the order.
They sent me the OEM version of the processor which is always lower priced than the retail version. This company actually changed their web page to look like BOTH processors were the same price!
I was aware of many complaints of fraudulent activity so I had 'screenshots' of the pages I ordered the parts from.
After calling numerous times to try to get a refund and being denied (motherboard was also DOA)I posted a bad review on Resellerratings.com and the next moring shortly6 after 7AM I was awakened by Humberto Vallejo calling me from TigerDirect.
Know what this man said to me ?.... "What will it take to make you go away."
(This company also billed my credit card TWICE for the processor.)
Anyway,we agreed on a refund of my order, plus shipping AND the company did a 3way call to my credit card company to get the second charge taken off.
The moral is : Tiger Direct are complete and total rip-off's AND liars also. IT borders on actually being a completely fraudulent company!
The rebate scams are horrendous. TigerDirect also OWNS 'Onrebate.com'...so ...75% of their customers NEVER get any rebates.
Plus...fraudulent charges on credit cards are RAMPANT from Tiger Direct.
Consumers BEWARE...avoid them at ANY cost!
check their ratings out at: ResellerRatings.Com...hit the 'LOW' category to get an idea of what they do to people!
