I too was also scammed by Freebee Gas and I believe my dealership Suburban Ford of Sterling Heights, Mi. I was given a $500.00 voucher for free gas because the final monthly payment for my Ford Fusion was just over $300.00 per month. I had told the dealership I wanted my payments under $300.00. They appolgized for the error saying they had made a mistake in final calculations and offered me this $500.00 rebate. After going online and seeing what I had to do in order to receive this free gas, I was totally discussed. I called Suburban Ford and explained what I had to do in order to receive vouchers which they told me they were unaware of the prceedures set forth by Freebee Gas and offered me 4 free oil changes along with the voucher which I have not used as of yet since I just purchased the vehicle in August. I have been sending in gas receipts starting in August 08 until now March 09 and have not received a single gas card. Freebee Gas stopped sending me confirmation of my receipt's for January & Feburary which I had thought something was up. I have called and left messages with no responce and my e-mails get kiked back to me. I had gotten the same responce as others I have read by Suburban Ford saying they were behind in sending out the cards. I will start using these oil change vouchers and ask for a total of $500.00 worth plus my $5.00 deposit to Freebee Gas and a total waste of me time collecting and mailing these receipts. I recommand that everyone who received these through a dealership do the same. Maybe then they would check out companies they do business with. Tony, Mi.
I just saw a story on the news last night that the website and contact phone numbers for the company have been shut down. I called the FL attorney general's office, and they said to make a complaint in writing to:
or through regular mail:
Office of the State Attorney General
State of Florida
The Capitol P-01
Tallahassee, FL 32399
Also, you should contact the company that gave you the card in the first place- they are victims of the scam, too. From what I hear, some of them are making good on what was originally promised.
What I don't understand is, how can it be so hard to find the person or persons who started this scam and make them pay?? Surely there had to be an owner or corporation behind it. Hopefully the Attorney General's office will be able to take care of this.
