I am a victim of the same scam!!! Stanley an d Donny Lowey...I'm sure they're fake names. I paid for items since July, 2009 and to date the liar keeps promising to ship me my goods. It's hurtful because I spent a month's salary on that. I do agree with you...they are blood suckers and I hope they rot in hell!!!

I do not know who is posting
these messages, and I do not
know what their agenda is.

They are welcome to contact
me directly to resolve
any issues that they may have.

I receive overstock from
a major department store,
and send out all orders
on a timely basis.

Since the merchandise is
overstock from a department
store, from time to time
there is a delay in receiving a new
shipment of merchandise.

I do update all my customers
so that they are properly informed.

I also keep all invoices,
and proof that the orders
have in fact been sent out.

You are welcome to contact
the shipping companies that
I use, or you can contact me
directly to verify this.

My warehouse is also open for
inspection 6 days a week.

Customers are welcome to
visit the warehouse and
make their purchases in

My entire contact information
is listed on my site,
including my cell phone number.

I would be glad to provide
references upon request.

I visited this hell hole and just like the name of the company Closeout explosion, sure looks like thats what happened there an explosion of a mess. You are told to go in an check out all their rooms and pick out what you want. Sure pick it UP (not out) from the crack floor, the walls, dirty shelves. They should be issued a buliding violation. Looks like an episode from Hoarders the tv show on A&E TV. Everything is all over the place no organization. Poor lady that you'll see picking up and moving boxes, while Stanley, if that's his real name sits and cons clients over the telephone. He'll tell you anything to sell the junk he has up in there. They don't accept credit cards ONLY CASH, that way you can't ever get your money back and if you put up a valid argument you are ask to leave with the damaged goods, I was ask to but I didn't. I was the customer and I returned damaged product it was their job if they didn't want to return my money and issue you me a junkyard credit to check the replacement merchandise. I had to sift through 6 cartons at 50 pieces each 300 total pieces 2 hours out of my day to get 50 okay ones not even perfect. He is not a man of his word... He is full of $#@*. They should have done the sifting, but no I had to do this to recooperate my investment. Quess what? I didn't trust them to do it anyway. They are running a junkyard in what they call a showroom and a scam online because the pictured items shown on their website are not what you see when you go there. I'm glad I didn't order anything online and decided to go visit, it would have been harder to get my merchandise returned. Be afraid be very afraid of Closeout Explosion and CloseoutExplosion.com, bunch of scammers, liars and cons. Scammers, because of what's depicted on your website is not what's in the junk yard, Liar because what you said was in the carton wasn't but that's my fault trusting you in the first place, Cons because while I was sifting I heard you! Stanley ! Conning people over the telephone, telling them to come visit the junkyard, sorry that's not what you said you said warehouse lol. I won't be a satified returning customer, I just get burnt once, shame on you.

I am the owner of Closeoutexplosion.com

I have two warehouses that are full of clothing and shoes,
and due to the fact that we constantly receive pallets, and
have customers sifting through the boxes, it can be a challenge
to keep everything neat at all times.
We allow customers to pick and choose their own clothing and shoes,
or we can do this for them.
Everyone is welcome to visit the warehouse, it is open
six days a week.
The clothing and shoes are all brand name, brand new, and are
primarily department store overstock.
Please keep in mind that many of the so called "complaints"
can be posted by my competitors.

I have been doing biz with Closeout explosion for over 2 years & i am a very satisfied customer.I was sceptical @ 1st about d fact they dont receive credit card but Donny Lowy assured me back then & then offered to deliver d first batch of my order on COD basis which he did.Since then i have been placing orders online & on the phone & making payments by Money order.Once or twice i complained to them about some size issues & they were very helpful.
I guess some people are either scamming people by using Donny Lowy's names or some people are just out to destroy his business because they cant compete with his price. But as far as i know, i have never been scammed by the company & i have been doing business with them for over 2 years.

Donny, explain how this is NOT a scam. I asked for some mens clothing, you sent me an invoice which I paid by bank transfer. I have received nothing, you wont take my calls or give me a real answer by email. It is over seven months since I paid you $2000 dollars and I still have nothing. Explain this please? Back in February I asked you for a refund you said no. Then I asked for different products and you still wouldnt deliver. Then I asked for any products you had - ANYTHING!! - and still I have received nothing.
SCAM - plain and simple. I have all paperwork and anyone you wants can contact me to get proof if they wish.

Please do not believe any replies that Donny Lowy or Stanley or whatever name this deceptive con man uses. The people on here including me were ripped off by Donny Lowy. he claims to be this person who wants to help people make money and the only person making the money is him, after he rips you off. Do not be scammed by the pictures that he uses on his website. You get NOTHING close to what is pictured. And do not believe for a second that you receive what is described on his consite. You will receive Ralph Lauren, Anne Klein etc. It in 2/22/13 and I received brands I never heard of and they were for fall of 2009. Yes 2009. He is a smart con and knows how to orchestrate emails back to you that make it seem like he is going to give you a refund. the fact of the matter is he will only give you a credit on your next order. Yeah like I'm going to get ripped off a second time.Out of the 100 pieces of women' s dresses I received 19 dresses with non-repairable holes and tears, 41 dresses with NO TAGS that stunk and were worn returns. The dresses that did have tags and no stains and no tears were either petite or huge plus sizes, and were unbranded. 1, 200 bucks he stole from me. This is the reason he does not take credit cards. there is no recourse when you buy from him, once he has your money you're done. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR HIS BULLS%$#! DO NOT BELIEVE HIS REPLIES TO THESE COMPLAINTS. AND DO NOT BELIEVE THE PHONY POSITIVE REVIEWS ON THIS SITE FOR DONNY LOWY. THOSE ARE FAKE ACCOUNTS MADE BY HIM AND STANLEY. Both fake names he uses. You have been warned and do you think I would waste my time writing this while football is on ????? DO NOT BELIEVE A LIAR AND A THIEF!!!

The above complaint is false. Kirk Billingsley was initially happy, and then once I did not have a chance to reply to his emails he threatened to impersonate me online, and has been making up complaints. You are welcome to contact me for customer references, and you can visit my warehouse as well. This was the first email I received from him, clearly showing that he was originally happy with the merchandise. I am an honest business person, and you are willing to visit the warehouse to verify this. Kirk has posted multiple complaints that are fabricated.

Your ears must have been burning. I was just talking to my wife regarding the order. All three boxes were delivered on the same day. The clothing was all in plastic to mitigate wrinkling. The handbags are in good shape that you sent along with the order also. I can see me finding a use for large qty's in the very near future. I talked to a local "old school" shoe shop to inquire about repairs, etc.

Thank Donny for the follow up, I appreciate it.

Will be talking soon for another order/order's

Positive thoughts to you and your neighbors on this remembrance day of 9-11

Donny is a liar. Now he is writing emails and attaching my name to them and my business. This is impersonation and also brand damage to the highest degree.

He writes his own positive remarks here just like he does for his terrible plagurised ebooks on Amazon. Go to amazon and type his name in.

He is a scam artist and nothing more.
