BooksRun / buyback scam

1 United States

There is no water damage on the book, but the book was sent in perfect condition. I have photos to prove it as such before it was sent. You can see below the photo they attached, which is not indicative of water damage at all, let alone that it was on my book. The company is scamming people for their books, stay away! The internet is filled with similar reviews, so I wish I had done more homework on the company before submitting a book to them. The issue occurred on 12/21/2018, so it is current.
