All Used Parts, Belleview, Florida Complaint - Internet Junk Yard Scam Artists
I searched the web for a hard-to-find part, a tailgate for a '75 Jeep Cherohee. All Used Parts responded by Email and said they had one. They took a credit card. Weeks passed and they ignored my messages. They said, after MANY CALLS to 352-293-8187, that an employee had stolen their credit card machine and we could dispute the $400 charge. They then said that if we still wanted the part they needed a certified check. We sent them a check thinking they were legit. Months later, we have no part and they cashed the check. Local police have been contacted to see if the business exists in Belleview. The address looks like a reality office. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS PLACE.
UPDATE 10-5-09: We called the Marion County Florida police department on 10-2-09. They knew all about this place and had already investigated other similar complaints. The police know these folks. We immediately got a call from one of the former (alleged) owners who promised to refund the $440 that they had cashed in August. We will see. The police said not to call them back and take All Used Parts to small claims court if we don't get our $ back. I imagine All Used knows that it would cost us a bunch to come to the Sunshine State from the Great White North to go to court where we'd have no asurity that we would ever get anything. Bottom line, I think that anyone who ever sent them a check and received nothing is now on an inclined plane fastener.
