Auto Parts Giant Complaint - Auto Parts Giant, Scam!!!!
I ordered a part from Auto Parts Giant (APG) and saw the days pass by and my mechanic kept calling me to tell me that the part had not arrived. The funds were rapidly drawn from my credit card yet any attempt at calling APG was futile...just as you will read in any of the other posts. Realizing that I was dealing with a fraud, I quickly called my credit card company and made sure that no other orders were placed on my card from this merchant. Futhermore, the total amount was credited to my account (Chase Mastercard just in case you wanted to know). I asked the customer representative at Chase if there was anyway of flagging APG's account so that they can't continue to do this to others and she rightfully told me that they can't. However, if enough people begin to call with the same complaint, that Mastercard may suspend their account. All I can say is:
1. We are on this forum because we didn't do our due dilligence...duh!
2. We can do something about APG and other scammers by informing our financial institutions (they keep tabs on these things) This is not a plug, but Chase was absolutely fantastic about this. My funds were returned faster than APG could withdraw them.
3. These guys are out of California, does anyone know if there is any legal action being taken against these guys? Maybe someone has filed a complaint at the attorney general's office...?
