Woody's Books Complaint - Does It Again!
After reading about a complaint from an Amazon.com buyer, I had the same experience. The bookstore lists an item at a low price but tells you POLITELY they are "out of stock", then lists it at a higher price.

It's called Bait & Switch. Report it to your state attorney general, consumer protection division.

I had a very unpleasant experience with that merchant (woody-books) as well. I bought a book that never came. Luckily, Amazon stand in between and gave me a refund. But still you cannot be compensated for the time lost and wasted caused by that seller. The seller never did any communication with my emails. They donot have a phone line to contact to.

I hate woody's books with the white hot hatred of the burning sun. No email communication. It appears they are "drop shipping" a book to me that they never had in the first place. $110.00 and it's been over 3 weeks. They sent me an email with the wrong book title asking for my amazon feedback. No idea if the right book was sent, when, from where. They are EVIL

Purchased an item from Woody's Books for an advertised price of $42 via Barnes and Noble on Sunday. Purchase was confirmed by Woody's and Barnes and Noble on Monday. Monday afternoon received note from both that order was cancelled because item is no longer in stock. Later Monday night Woody's Books listed the kit on half.com for close to 30% more than advertised on Barnes & Noble. Asked seller for an explanation. No response. Surprised Barnes & Noble thinks this kind of behavior is good for business. Will never order from them again.

This is an authorized seller for Barnes and Noble. after 2 weeks, still no book. BnN has no information for me, they don't track their sellers. 4-14 business days for shipping! they don't tell u that on the web site. This place sucks! still no book!

Order a book from who i thought was Barns and Noble. Found out latter it was Woody's Books. was told my book was shipped to me on May 10th. Seven day latter no book and the website they give to contact them does not work. I'm trying to prepare for an exam. I will never use Woody's Book ever again.
