UBID Online Auction is where you buy another company's JUNK

This page contains the e-mail proof that Ubid screws customers !




UBID goods are NOT useable and appear to be refurbished and broken down junk

  • The key accusation is that UBID Inc., an online auction company out of Memphis, TN, selling the public bad goods and not taking steps to correct faulty items sent to customers."

    Why send mail saying they are investigating and then they forget the customer query. I know . . . they are making sure the warranty period expires. Here is the actual mail about the faulty monitor. Ubid first acknowlodges the need to correct the monitor problems . . . it starts at the bottom of this page . . . dated October 1989. You "further researched" until there was no warranty and thought no responsibility. THINK AGAIN . . . Court action will catch up with crooked dealings.

    Dear Norbert,
    
    Thank you for contacting us.  Your monitor had a 30 day warranty with
    our distributor.  Since you do not have an email proving that you
    contacted us within the 30 day period they will not repair it at this
    date.  I regret any inconvenience this may have caused you.
    
    Sincerely,
    Marilyn K

    Can we wake up UBID to see their way clear to doing what is right and their duty? If we payed their salary . . . they would stop collecting wages!

    ---- The Account # is 0034367607 and the order deals with lot 28381, a SONY Trinitron 15" monitor from Gateway. The customer wants the same size and quality monitor replacement . . . now.

    ---- Send us Mail

    Should we try the Federal or State government activities to force corrective action!
