No, they are not. In California alone hte Better Business Bureau has ore than 300 complaints against them. They use their own domain and make up "fake" subsites so when you google the company, it display all these results were customers rave how goog they are but when you look at the URL - it's all their own domain.
They quoted me 175.00 in a 32 GB Samsung Galaxy SIII and 180.00 on a 32 GB Galaxy Note 10.1. That was already low ball. Both items were 6 months old. I sent both items in their original manufacturer boxes with all the accessories. Both items had been in protective sleeves from Day one. For both items I even sent the protective sleeves with them, for the note it was one that allows it to stand etc. I thought that was pretty nice of me.
Took them more than 1 week aver they received it to admit that they had gotten it. You try calling them - you'll never get through. A male announcer will tell you that there's heavy call volume and you are only left with the option to leave your number and someone will call you back. If you keep staying on the line, it disconnects you after 1 hour so you have no other option.
After 2 days they finally called and claimed that the items were not in prestine condition, had scratches and they supposedly did not receive them in the original boxes with accessories. They claimed they were in used condition with scratches and they offered 160.00 for both items.
I asked for both items back and told them that I am an attorney and have credible witness to attest in what conditions the items were and also of all the accessories and original boxes and that I also took photos of all before I shipped.
Then I was told they would "re-evaluate" and had to ask "the manager".
The next day they came back and quoted 220.00 for both items.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE A TOTAL FRAUD AND RIP YOU OFF!!
They will lure you with high bids but once they get your stuff, they will low-ball you and try to rip you off. Similar companies are not much better. When you ship the items, they come with the same scam and when you ask for the items back in the condition they were - all they will send back is your phone/notebook, in an envelope with bubble wrap. You won't get your original boxes or accessories back. They will tell you "we don't keep the accessories or boxes the customers send".
I think a TV station should to an investigative report on those scams. I notified my local TV station, I suggerst you do the same.
