Wirefly Complaint - Crooks and Scam Artists - You Are Warned - Go Elsewhere
In December of 2006 I made the mistake of setting my family up with new cell phones through Wirefly. I did a lot of research and Wirefly appeared to have the best deals - AFTER REBATES. After purchasing 3 cellphones (plus Verizon wireless service)from Wirefly I was owed a total of $190 in rebates. With the rebates, I would have received a good deal. Without them I was badly ripped off.
Unfortunately, I discoved too late that Wirefly is nothing more than a front for a massive rebate fraud scheme. I HAVE NEVER RECIEVED ONE PENNY OF THE $190 IN REBATES THAT WIREFLY OWES ME. I don't believe Wirefly ever had any intention of paying the rebates they promised. I completed all the documentation requirements for my rebates (which were onerous and took hours of my time spread over several months), and submitted it. I have a letter from Wirefly acknowledging that they have received all the required documentation and stating that they will send me the rebates. I have called and written Wirefly repeatedly for over 3 years, but have received not one penny.
Wirefly claims that anotHer company was responsible for the rebates, and that that other company has gone bankrupt! I researched the bancrupcy filings of that other company and learned that HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF FOR THEIR WIREFLY REBATES. Wirefly committed to paying these rebates, and can not Dodge the responsibility for paying them. If they can not pay them, then WIREFLY itself should go bankrupt. The fact that this company still operates under the same name and is still scamming people even today only compounds their crime.
IF YOU DO BUSINESS WITH WIREFLY YOU WILL BE RIPPED OFF. THEY ARE CROOKS.
