ADS Pool Table Tech Complaint - ADS Pool Table Tech sold me a pool table - took my $800. deposit and disappeared! I have NO pool table!

Review by Baja Lorena on 2008-09-11
SAN DEIGO, CALIFORNIA -- I found the perfect pool table over the internet from ADS Pool Table Tech. I contacted the owner of the company and we talked about the different wood stains, the different felt finishes and discussed delivery. I looked at all the choices on their website and my husband and I chose a pool table. I met the owner and his partner in San Diego and gave him a $795. deposit. The balance was to be paid two days later when the table was to be delivered and set up. Unfortunately the check was cashed, the ad disappeared from the internet site and the website was now down! My calls were not returned and NO pool table was delivered! I am out $795. I do not want this to happen to anyone else!

Did you pay cash??? If check or credit card, please stop payment on the check, or file a dispute with the cc company. Otherwise, file a lawsuit against them. Peoples Court, Judge Joe Brown, Judge Judy etc...are always looking for additional cases. DON't LET THEM GET AWAY WITH STEALING YOUR MONEY!!!! Seriously, file a lawsuit in small claims court regardless of where.

File a claim to who? The ad's taken down, the website closed and the phone calls go unanswered. These guys are long gone. Go to the police and file a complaint with the fraud dept is the only option I can think of.

The OP paid by check. I'll bet it was cashed in a check cashing place. The phone number listed for them is disconnected.
