Dallas Wholesalers / Disappeared merchant
On July 9, 2008 I did place an order for merchandise on the internet via the web site http://www.dallaswholesalers.net for the amount of $74.95. Shortly thereafter I discovered that I had forgotten to include two items, so I tried to call them at the phone number, [protected] which is listed on the web site as the contact phone number. I left a voice mail which the recording stated would be returned promptly, however, no return phone call was received.
I had received an autoresponder email confirming my order, however, when I also tried emailing regarding this order at the email addresses of jeri AT dallaswholesalers.net and sales AT dallaswholesalers.net, I never received a response.
I did a reverse lookup of their contact phone number, [protected] and discovered that it is listed to a Richard Gilbert at an unlisted street address in McKinney, TX.
Upon further research I discovered a different phone number listed to Geraldine Gilbert, owner of Dallas Wholesalers at the address listed on the web site and discovered that the phone number was disconnected. This disconnected number is also the phone number listed on the PayPal transaction as the contact number.
Throughout the rest of the day of July 9, 10 and 11, the voice mail box for [protected] was full and I was unable to contact anyone at all regarding this order.
On July 12, my pending transaction for the amount of $74.95 was completed. I have come to the conclusion that they have no intention of ever shipping the merchandise I had ordered.
