UBid Complaint - BUYER BEWARE - Bernoulli Watch and ROKR Cell Phone
I have had 2 bad experiences with UBID. One with their watch company and the brand Bernoulli. The information provided for Bernoulli is basically "smoke and mirrors", no information on the fabrication of the watch could be obtained until I did some Google reasearch and finally tracked down a Texas phone number where I reached the rudest "customer service" rep ever to pick up a phone! I found out the watch is made in Tiwan and their MSRP is something one could better determine by using a Ouiji Board! The watch is attractive and comes with a nice case but it is NOT worth the thousands they claim as their MSRP. More like $75 to $100.
The Motorola ROKR phone was advertised as "new". It was used, when turned on it said "Hello" and provided the owner's name! It also did not come with the memory chip or the IPOD disk necessary to operate the phone which was advertised as being in the box. Definitely a fraudulent transaction! It was sent back and UBID has not responded to my follow up messages regarding my refund. When I saw all the negative information on UBID after a Google search, I filed a claim with my bank to get my refund of almost $200.
CAVEAT EMPTOR! I should have known better! A good rule of thumb - If they don't accept Pay Pal, there is most likely a problem.
