Blue Hippo / Scam

1 United States Review updated:

We did not get the things that Blue Hippo tolds us that we would get. Like LCD TV. Printer, camera. and a 320.00 rebate I don't believe that Blue Hippo was true about what they said they would give me. i have read other reports from other customers about how they didn't get the stuff that they were promised from Blue Hippo. I do believe that this is a SCAM. Another thing is about the REBATE that they claim they would give, but inorder to get it i had to go online, and when i did it still didn't come.

    I am one of many very unhappy BlueHippo customers. I unlike many did receive my computer but not without a run-a-round that would exhaust a marathon competitor. My nightmare began mid 2007 with a late night order to BlueHippo, with hopes of collecting, research, and retaining information for a future business I had in mind. After dealing with BlueHippo for months the dream of starting my own company was washed out with the despicable and fraudulent acts of this second party computer distributor.

    The same happened to me as so many others but I took it to the public. I closed my checking account, published a paid add in our local paper searching for other victims, called the BBB in MN and Baltimore, MD, called the police and an attorney, then the Attorney General's office in both MN and MD. I kept records of every action I took and then sent it all to BlueHippo's Head office.

    After speaking to the Attorney General in Maryland I'd found out BlueHippo had just settled a case via the Attorney General's office with just over 300 unhappy customers. She had encouraged me to get my info into her office ASAP, as well as anyone else from my area because the next case was already being worked on and soon to be filed. She emphasized quickness because she believed BlueHippo was preparing to move out of Maryland. After contacting BlueHippo about my newly collected info, three weeks later my computer was at my door step via DHL delivery.

    The delivery was six weeks after my checking account was closed. Although I never received all the extras I did have the computer and I have never heard from BlueHippo again. I say this because what was going to be a $2100 purchase turned into an $800 purchase, and although I had signed a contract they found out I could still collect through the AG's office for breach of contract on their part.

    Don't think you can't collect call the Attorney General's Office in Maryland. I would love to know how you made out. Good luck and God Bless!

    I am just find out about Blue Hippo. They did the same to me. I can't believe they are getting away with ripping people off. From the first time I called to complaint and was put on hold for nearly an hour, I Knew something was wrong. You can reach them by phone or mail.

    What I can't understand is that; how does the government continue to allow them to air their commercials on TV. I will not stop until I get my money back and them some.

I am pissed!!! .i have been trying to contact customer services relating my money they stole from me .none of the phone numbers are in service. i need my money back its a lot for me i dont make much and i have six dependent. this is really wrong someone should do something about this . i put a stop to it with my bank but we are still out of $1, 247.74. my advise to anyone who will read this is, when you give your personal info on line or over th phone is do check on your accoount periodically making sure when and if you cancel any order don't trust their lying stupid comfirmation # giving to you, because they could go behind your back and continue to steal from you .allt hey need is the acount number giving aproval you originally give to them before the cancellation dont be a foul .dont be like me . i was so busy working to put food on the table for my 6 kids and my lovely wife i never paid attention and check as to what was going on in my checking and saving account and because of it my family are out of 1, 247.74 and i am not sure if i will ever see it back fromt those ### at blue hippo the so called the computer sale of any year. for me is the stealing your money while you are looking or paying attention in your affairs deals. i am pissed Obama shoul do something about this and the jidge who grant them bankcrupcy should have make sure that all victim gets their money back.i am sure they are really bankcrupt. give my children back their money you bunch hypocrits god will get you for this in judment day all you who was part of this scam.!!!/.

    I am writing to tell all of my story on how I am being scammed. I don't know where to start on getting this problem resolved. But mabye by getting the word out will help.

    It started last July of 08 when I was trying to get a computer and came across Blue Hippo. They are a no credit check, low bi-weekly payment place that helps those to get things such as a computer or TV or cameras. My choice of electronic was a Dell computer. I called blue hippo in hopes that they could help me get a computer to better myself in my education. They sent me paper work to fill out and send back to them. I filled them out as soon as I got them and sent them back the very same day so that way my delivery was not delayed, I set up the payment for automatic withdraw so I did not default on any payments. They told me that I need to make 6 to 13 payments to build a short credit history with them, which is understandable, so I waited. After about 15 payments I started to worry so I decided to give them a call to make sure everything was still on track. They told me that everything was received and they sent the order to Dell and that it should be sent out as soon as possible. Well a few months went by and still nothing so I called again and they again reassured me that it is on its way and that it would be here before Christmas. well it is now almost may of 09 and lets say the least I still have no computer. My computer is suppose to be paid off in full at the end on June. I have just over four hundred left to pay and have paid well over 15 hundred dollars to it, and still have nothing. I have called numerous times within the months and they keep saying the same thing. so I decided to do a little research and come to find out I'm not the only one. I read allot of cases all over the internet that identical to mine. people who have paid thousands of dollars and have no computer. there are people who have reported this to the better businesses bureau and taken action they felt necessary but still I have not herd of one case that has been resolved. I have stopped the payment from being taken out of my account but I am afraid that they will send it to collections like another case I read about.

    I am writing in hopes of some kind of answers if there is any way someone who reads this has some sort of advide that they can inform me of please feel free to contact me, or even just to let people know of what is going on.
