I ordered a Sony Camcorder for a great price, but when the guy from Close Out Genius called to confirm the order, he told me the camera I ordered was the Japanese model (all instructions and instruction books are in Japanese) and it would be delivered 6 to 9 weeks from now. He tried to sell me batteries, chargers and other things, but when I said the words "bait and switch" he got mad and told me I had just threatened him and that he is now justified in canceling my order. He did. I asked what was going to happen to my personal and credit card information, and he said he would erase it all.
I don't want to order anything from this company. I wish I had looked up its name before I purchased and I would have seen all the comments about the scam shop being run. But, I am worried about my credit card information. What can be done to prevent Close Out Genius from marketing my personal information and the information of everyone else who is getting scammed?
Hello ALL, I order something from this company but it took them a couple of days to respond so I called...
under no circumstances should anyone deal with this company! You may find a great deal on something, or so you think. Then they call to confirm the order and before you know it you are harrassed with over priced add ons. The guy was very rude when i declined! I said I didnt like the way they do business and he said my order was cancelled and hung up. No legit company would do this. I doubt i would have ever even recieved my order if I had fallen for the scam. I immediately reported my card as stolen and froze my account. DONT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY!
