I have an account on varagesale southeastern Manitoba. A lady wanted a serger I had posted and took a while to make a plan. I unfortunately had to get my friend to go to the meetup. Everything got screwed up and she sold the serger to the wrong person. I tried explaining to the lady what happened. ERIKA LEE just without letting me explain I had a death in...

VarageSale I have complain about admins

I have so much problems with Regina Admin Erika Lee

She is the most meanest , not helpful & …

I am a VarageSale Member since I think about 10 years , or so , who is always very active…. Very respectful to other people & caring about my account (that it says loudly in all almost 800 praises…)

I’ve never post anything illegal…

I am a 60 years old who is trying to downsize my whole life of love of collecting beautiful items, vintage & antique & furniture…

Everything, & because of that , I have lots of items …

I had few adds that I posted as a few items in one ( different size tables for example) & I specifically & carefully explained about each one with it’s picture, size & price…

I post them in section of “ I am having sale”

The Admin texted me & said , she is Deactivating my page, because of that ….(I had few of this kind ; all Silver Plates…all mirrors … ) I seriously don’t understand why my page is deactivated by her, I did try to do what she is asking… I even told her to go ahead & erase whatever you dislike…

I don’t understand, why I am going through this hell of experience for something so not even important… I haven’t post anything illegal… not harassing anyone …what is so wrong that I have to go through this punishment!?

I keep sending her text & ask her to release my page… but unfortunately she is taking an advantage of her power in order to make a hell for me …

I always see & hear why people either not joining VarageSale or dropping off because of the behaviour of admins… all they do is to cancel & inactive your page left & right…

Now I really understand why VarageSale has so many negative reviews….

The most horrible thing is that you don’t know who to complain if you have problems with the admins & their way of treating people.

I appreciate your time reading my message & hoping your reply back .

I hope my complaint hear & read by someone in order to make changes in this website & make the site more enjoyable for people instead of this “ Hell Experience “

I am active in other buy & sells page & post my items exactly the way I post them in VarageSale & has never , ever problems with them or their admins…or never my account has been deactivated or revoked or pended .

Yes she is evil and also the admin here in Steinbach mb(varagesale southeastern manitoba). Very vindictive and spiteful. Recently banned me from the group because i could not meet a person and sent my friend and she sold product to the wrong person. I had a death in the family. This just happened friday july 5th 2024. She does not reply is like a rude school teacher

VarageSale Administration rep: Erika Lee

This admin rep did the following:

1. Stated they were not allowed to request personal ID; then immediately asked for it.

2. Questioned my integrity by asking for proof of my first and last name.

3. When asked for their supervisors contact information; they provided a link to a “bot” response.

In summary, they encouraged me to be deceitful and essentially called me a liar in two consecutive sentences.

My request: this “Erika Lee” be dismissed immediately for deliberately putting not only my integrity at stake but placing the company in a vulnerable position.

Desired outcome: Dismiss Admin rep : Erika Lee

Is VarageSale Legit?

VarageSale earns a trustworthiness rating of 82%

Highly reliable. Use their services with confidence, yet trust but verify.

Our conclusion: ComplaintsBoard rates VarageSale highly, which means their services are pretty reliable. Despite this, their 3% complaint resolution rate raises questions. We recommend users check reviews and complaints about VarageSale to understand what to expect from them.

Varagesale.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

We looked up VarageSale and found that the website is receiving a high amount of traffic. This could be a sign of a popular and trustworthy website, but it is still important to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of the site before sharing any personal or financial information

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • VarageSale's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. The support team lacks customer service skills, training, and resources, resulting in only 3% of 0 complaints being resolved.
  • VarageSale protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.
  • We conducted a search on social media and found several negative reviews related to VarageSale. These reviews may indicate issues with the company's products, services, or customer support. It is important to thoroughly research the company and its offerings before making any purchases to avoid any potential risks.

VarageSale Varagesale Aviano Afb Italy

Hello i am a Italian citizen working for the Us Air Force . I’ve had Varagesale for many years up until 2 days ago. My Facebook has a nickname Lorenzo Lollo ( my son and i) .Your Admin Al Logan very rudely and in a bully way revoked my account saying I have too many accounts and that I should use my real name. I asked to see the regulations i got no reply. I pointed out other people with nicknames, no reply. Mr Logan has broken all the military cybersecurity regulations by asking a copy of my base pass and where i work.

Mr Logan says he supports the Base General rules however these are not the General ‘s rules.

Plus I should be free to name my Fb in whatever name i please. I will take this to a higher chain, this is totally unacceptable! Thank you.

Desired outcome: Reinstate my account Lorenzo Lollo

VarageSale Membership suspended for 6 weeks.

Shane Purcell

Steinbach MB

[protected]@outlook.com

A female had frozen chickens posted under the category deemed only for free items. When I messaged her I learned that they were in fact not free and that she was charging. I got annoyed and told her "Why do people keep on posting for sale under the free category, it's just wastes our time, and it's really not rocket science". Erika Lee the power-tripping admin who EVERYONE complains about deemed that "Harrasment". I didn't threaten, make fun of, cause mental anguish, tease or repeatedly mssg the seller. I sent one mssg, that's it one single mssg and she calls it unsolicited opinion and Harrasment. She is so far out of line that it's getting ridiculous already. 6 week band for making one comment that was any sort of Harrasment. I tried putting a complaint in with Varage sale head office about Erika Lee before and they told me to take it up with my Administrator Erika Lee. Yes they told me to take my issue with Erika Lee to Erika Lee. She needs to stop this ridiculous behavior. At one point I had my picture as a profile pic and I am very obviously indigenous and then low and behold this stuff starts happening. I have since removed my picture as I believe Erika is looking for any reason to rid the community of me because of my appearance. She needs to be stopped and my acct should not be on the hook for a 6 week ban. I'm sure if you speak to her that she's going to just lie her way through this. It's ridiculous how she's treating me. I can't attach photos if my one and only comment that i told you about as she blocked access to my account. The woman told Erika that I also mssgd her out of the blue which is also a complete lie. I believe Erika Lee is being sexist and possibly racist towards me.Please help!

Desired outcome: Erika Lee to reinstate my acct and apologize for abusing her power.

PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME .

THIS WOMAN “ ERIKA LEE” IS COMPLETELY CRAZY.

WHY THERE IS NO ONE ABOVE THIS COOCOO I CAN TALK TO.

Please please please some one give me a call

[protected]

SHE IS KEEPING MY PAGE HOSTAGE FOR THE SAKE OF HER GAME & HER ENJOYMENT.

I have been in VarageSale for last 7 years…

I have more than 750 praises that every single one of them talk loudly about my personality & the way of caring & respecting other people & my account.

Please someone get in touch with me to see how I can get myself & my page out of the arms of this CRAZY OCTOPUS.

This is very frustrating that , at the end of the day , the person , who some one has a problem with, has the authority to go ahead….& continue with his/her “ UNFAIR DECISIONS “ & “ NONSENSE BEHAVIOUR “ towards some members like me; who is not new in this website… (I have been member since 2016) ,who has never post anything illegal…

I’ve had always love & kindness & respect toward all members (as you can see from my “OVER 750 PRAISE ” , & hopefully understand by reviewing them)which all are proves of my personality & my way of dealing with others.

Some Admins like Erika Lee , (who has apparently so much in her plate , by Administering Regina & Edmonton & other cities ), could care less about the number of members in VarageSale…As a matter a fact :

THE LESS ACTIVE MEMBERS…THE LESS LOAD OF WORKS FOR HER!

That is why she is inactivating members left & right for any STUPID REASONS, she can come up with.

I guess that works will be much better/ enjoyable for her @the end of the day,…So why not ?!

I am a 60 years old woman who works from home & since I have only one child who doesn’t like Vintage or Antique, I prefer to sell all my items that I collect them along all my life.

Instead of God forbid one day , they ended up in Blue Recycling containers or in Value Village!

“Erika Lee”accused me that I have shop…

I sent her pictures of my big house & every single room with all my beautiful antiques…I also sent her pictures of my hair salon that I run from home….

( which I think it is not her business to know how & why I have all those items…to begin with)

She picked on me then why I posted for example few items in 1 add?!

I specifically categorized & organized my posts.

I had for example 1 post for few silver plates;

Described their brand, size & price individually, with pictures of each ….

Very nice …complete & organized….

Never ever had any complaints from anyone …

Members view them & choose their favourite ones, texted me, I give them the discount , make an arrangement for pickup…they come , buy,pay…leave a praise….

& we are all happy….I then edit my post , to explain the availability…

I don’t understand, if the whole point & goal is to “Buy & Sell” what is wrong to make that more efficient by saving space for other people’s add,

By posting 1 add with similar items ( including all the information about each & individual) , I post 10 adds of each ?!?!?

Why , what is the harm !?

I had each one in

“ I am having sale” section,for example 1 for my tables….

1 for my lamps…

1 for my Silver Wares…

& then in the explanation section, I provided all the details about the items each & individual & their price separately….& also provided more pictures in the comments section.

She made me to either delete them all or move them in different categories & price them as whole (which is very stupid, because definitely not everyone needs to buy 5 lamps or 5 different tables )

One of her STUPID COMPLAINTS last night is why I included;

“Regina /East

Cash & Pickup please “

@ the end of my posts!

What the heck is she talking about.

I guess , no no I am %100 sure that is ;

SHE IS COMPLETELY LOOKING IT!

Anyway I did follow her requests & even told her , go ahead & erase whatever makes you happy…

But in order for her to to enjoy her psychological power of authority & of course MISUSING it to enjoy herself more, she kept me under her leash .

But I don’t see any reason to get deactivated or pended?!

For what reason?!

What did I do so wrong!?

So what , I posted few items (in her absolute nonsense opinion) in a wrong way or place…

So what ?!?!?

Did I harm or harassed any one?!

Did I do something illegal !?

Why I have to throughout this HELL because of her Unfairness & Attitude Problem!?

VarageSale has a very low rating & negative reviews due to their Admins & Their Behaviour Issues.

VarageSale can be a much better & more fun place for people , if there was a committee overlook the Admins .

ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS &THE LOW RATING OF VARAGESALE WEBSITE IS & ”” ONLY IS BECAUSE OF ADMINS & THEIR BEHAVIOUR & THE FACT OF ;

“”THEM TAKING AN ADVANTAGE OF THIER AUTHORITIES “”

Is a good idea for this App to start shaking it up & make changes in their “” NOT HELPFUL…MEAN….UNFAIR….POWER MISS USES ADMINS .

PLEASE PLEASE SOMEONE CALL ME

I really really really need to talk to someone in charge of the admins.

Thanks

VarageSale Admin Duncan bc either Liana, kris or 3rd person

The admin allowed me from Nanaimo to enter the community with the understanding I must travel to Cowichan.

I knew this and assured them.

When posting items October 22/22 I forgot to ad my info in for when I would come to Duncan. It was sent to admin. The admin went aggressive, bullying, arrogant, ignorant in their messages. How do they get penalized?

Desired outcome: Penalized and must be accountable for their own conduct and behaviour.

Admins (Cowichan Valley) are nuts. Agressive, rude and all of that. I agree! Acting like Gods not following the same rules made for members. Someone should fix them. The admin also not revealing its name. They decided to revoke my membership for VS glitch and after stated different reason (should be a real picture of me). By the the way only one admin has a real name and picture! The other have a strawberry picture of them and Admin is hidden.

VarageSale Varagesale company and admin

Will be deleting my account. Leeann deleted all my accounts. I help friends sell stuff from different areas and because my profile says I live somewhere else she deleted them and said I should have my friend sign up. I can sell on any other site no problem this person is their problem and will be their down fall. After this I have posted on Facebook and anywhere else that I can that this app is no good. Haven’t sold anything in years anyways. I’ve sold more on Kijiji and Facebook. Can’t even get a hold of VarageSale as it’s automated now. So done with this site and I was here from when it opened up.

VarageSale Unfair admin

I was a varagesale member for 3+ years. I had over 1000 praises and no complaints. I bought and sold hundreds of items. Lynn Gray the admin took a dislike to me and gave me a strike when I posted about another member ripping me off on an item worth $100+. She told me that me complaining about another member violated the rule about being nice to other members. What about the member that ripped me off? Did she get a strike or get banned ? Lynn wouldn’t tell me. I disagreed with her opinion because “being nice” is such an open interpretation to so many things. Months later I saw that Lynn said we couldn’t increase our price as a seller after posting something. This was regarding another member who charged a $5 delivery fee if the buyer wanted delivery. My feeling was that she didn’t increase the price, she just added a delivery fee. Lynn disagreed with me vehemently. So I emailed varagesale head office and asked them about this. They agreed with me. When I told this to Lynn, she lost it on me and banned me off varagesale FOREVER. How ridiculous and childish. I kept copies of all her rude comments and see that other members have filed complaints about her also. How does one rotten admin have that much control? When Lynn told me that she was stopping my membership, I messaged 6 people on varagesale that I had dealt with and asked them for their help in supporting me. Varagesale then said I was mass emailing. I only sent this message to 6 Regina people. That is not considered mass mailing when there are hundreds of members. I would like my membership re-instated please and thank you.

Desired outcome: My membership re-instated.

VarageSale Account revoked

On July 3 , 2022 my membership was revoked for posting an inspired LV purse for sale. I had seen many people posting these purses selling without a problem. The day I made my post my account was revoked. I messaged the administrators and like always they are all so rude. I have seen many sold this year and there accounts don't get revoked it's almost like the administrators pick and choose who they want to mess with. I lost out on sales because of them shutting my account down. Due to not being able to work at the moment this has been my only source of income and I explained that to them but they had no mercy on me.

Desired outcome: Reinstate account

Hi, I manage multiple VS Communities (not yours though).

VS Terms of Service clearly states

"Counterfeits, replica, or pirated items (including brand trademark infringement and counterfeit currency and stamps); deceptive or fraudulent content." under prohibited items.

All reported violations or observed by Admins are removed. Within my communities the seller is informed of the term and the removal. If there are repeat violations the member risks membership privileges.

I would suggest messaging the Admin. Let her/him know you will abide by VS Terms and request membership privileges to be reinstated.

Good Luck

VarageSale sign up

I don't have a facebook account or a mobile device so now because of that I am unable to make an account. I will not support facebook and I do not have the finances for a cell phone. So now because I want to be able to shop used I am unable to because of your system. That is terribly annoying and I feel discriminated against just for not wanting to support a discrimatory platform.

I am quite disgusted.

Desired outcome: To be able to have an account

VarageSale Erika Lee / Admins

On May 11th, a lady sent full payment for item I had posted. She wanted to pickup that evening, I agreed it worked for me. She then wanted to come May 13th instead. Once again, I agreed to that day. May 13th came, she then again postponed pickup until May 14th. I agreed that day worked, once again. Keep in mind I had been hanging onto the large 3 piece item for a few days now, when my house a tiny little place. Limited storage and space. I stated there isn’t enough room. Then she told me an emergency came up and Demanded her money back along with threatening to call police if she didn’t get it back. I thought this app was Buyers Beware? I stated no refunds and then told her someone would be home May 14th for her to pickup. Meanwhile I sent the screenshots to Admin Erika Lee and received No response. Erika proceeded to disregard the previous msgs/screenshots I had sent. She Advised I had 2 options. Arrange for diff day pickup, or refund her. Buyers beware? Anyway, I agreed and had already told buyer she could come the next day. I told Erika this, told her I put items outside for her convenience to pickup whenever she had free time. Last message I received from Erika stated she was waiting for confirmation form buyer that she received items. I have heard absolutely Nothing from Erika since then, and now find out my account is now back to pending status. She will not give any written reasons why, or which rules I had broke, NOTHING. If you’re going to ban someone for whatever reason, I believe they should be Notified when and Why! Power trip much?

Desired outcome: I would like my membership reinstated and if not, written as to why it was provoked. I was not withholding her items.

VarageSale Admin

Admin Leanne Mathews admins MANY different communities. She messaged me to remove my listings and post them all under one. When I went through the Rules and Terms of service and it was NOT listed there she removed me from ALL communities she manages. Then I joined the community to where I am moving and she demanded to know when I was moving, When I told her that was private information she did not need she denied me from that community as well. I emailed VarageSale to let them know about her behavior and I am clearly not the only one. She has bad reviews on her page and the app store as well as here. It is time to remove this power-hungry admin. She bullies people into giving her unnecessary information or it's her way or the highway.

Desired outcome: Have her removed as Admin from All communities

VarageSale Membership Revoked

I had my account suspended because I dropped the last two letters of my name on Facebook in order to protect myself. Seven years ago I was a victim of identity theft and after struggling for over a year to fix the issues I was advised by a lawyer never to use my name on social media again.

I had over 500 praises on VarageSale, had made top me ever repeatedly and had been using the app faithfully for over seven years. I did nothing wrong and was signalled out by one of the admins who seem to be on a power trip.

I decided to delete my account as honestly the whole thing was so incredibly ridiculous. Blocking someone from using the site for over two letters of their first name? I had done NOTHING wrong and had been using the name on the site that way for four years.

After deleting my account my mom, who sometimes used it too, was pretty sad so I attempted to make her her own account using her email and my phone number because all she has is a landline and they denied it saying that I was trying to create a new account and that I was banned from the site? For one the account wasn’t for me or in my name or under my email and for two I voluntarily deleted my account. I have no idea how this is ethical behaviour or why they would choose to persecute someone who actually hadn’t done a thing wrong. This app is a scam and the people in charge just seem to be on some kind of power trip that they lord over whoever they can get away with.

Desired outcome: I would like to get my mom her own account. I submitted her email and name and I have no idea why it was blocked? I would like me account reinstated as I did absolutely nothing wrong.

VarageSale Amin revoked access for a poor reason

I'm a faithful Varagesale user with many praises and was revoked this morning from because I chose not to list my full name on Facebook - this is ridiculous! Varagesale, update the profile so I can change my name on your app rather than changing my FB profile! The reasoning is so that people can verify who I am but Varagesale doesn't link to my FB profile and the only way you can verify who I might be is to search for me and maybe home my profile pictures match?! This is absurd and oddly strange since I can't even verify the admin who's harassing me! Furthermore, unless there have been complaints about how I sell or buy, how is my name a problem or issue? Varagesale should allow the option to use a different name from FB and if you TRULY want to say your verifying peoples account through FB then ACTUALLY link the profile to FB! I would like to have my access reinstated to my community and my FB name should not be an issue unless there are actually issues with me as a buyer or seller. Ideally, Varagesale should allow individuals to share their own name and not have the name default to your FB name.

VarageSale is a very weird site with very “ UNFAIR, MEAN , NOT KIND & NOT HELPFUL & NOT USEFUL,….ADMINS, who has nothings to do except picking on good people & members of VarageSale with almost close to 1000 praised & positive reviews…who is not doing anything wrong…. I was posting my items in exact manner as I posted them all in Market Place or Kijiji or Used Regina or Craigslist…. & in non of the site , I have ever got any complaints from any admins or managements….

But here in VarageSale anything , any absolute nonsense is a good enough reason for all those NONSENSE ADMINS, to Revoke people after years of activities & good presences & appearances .

So fed up with this site , because there is no one to complain to , no one to look over the “ NONSENSE of all this UNFAIR ADMINS , who are MISUSING THEIR POWERS , over good people who are not doing anything wrong….

But to this ABSOLUTELY NONSENSE ADMINS & MANAGEMENT, anything is good enough reason to start overacting & misusing their roles & rules ….

One example is “ ERIKA LEE”

Who is a BLACK CLOUD, over Regina , Moose Jaw, & wherever else that she has the BAD LUCK of her presence in there.

VarageSale Admin

LeeAnn Matthews needs to be removed as admin of ALL her groups. I am appalled at her treatment of me. Your policy does NOT say that I am required to give my first and last name, and yet LeeAnn has decided that she requires it. I have a long time stalker with a restraining order to prove it. I have moved, changed jobs, lost friends, etc etc etc, but apparently not being able to sell a couple used shirts should be added to the list. The fact that she has revictimized me is OUTRAGEOUS! And shame on you as a company if you stand behind this kind of power hungry admin. That or change your policy so it says "No privacy allowed"

VarageSale Admin Lynn Hall

Admin Lynn Hall on Varagesale was upset because me and my girlfriend both had businesses on varage on different accounts. My girlfriend offers reiki, massage and reflexology, I sell crystal products. She messaged me telling me my wife and I have to choose who posts our business. I dont know how she would even know we were dating unless she searched me on social media. Her message was extremely rude, we arent married and we have seperate registered businesses, she wanted us to choose who lists our business. She revoked my girlfriends account numerous times and banned her for life, she is diabetic, cant work and relied on extra income from varage. She had more than 1 business listed. She offers reiki, reflexology and massage. We assumed since they are different businesses they wouldnt have to be categorized under the same. Instead of explaining the reason behind this she banned the account. The admin also took down my used necklace listings stating they are part of my business, I dont sell used necklaces under my crystal business. I have been using my account with no issues for years until she confronted me about my girlfriend. I tried to login and now my account is also banned. I have been trying to contact varage as to how to report harassment from a admin and they wont help me, I am beyond upset with the service this business offers. I am also really creeped out over this lady.

Desired outcome: Admin held responsible for actione

VarageSale Admin unethical behaviour

I was recently revoked from my varage sale community by an admin with no explanation given I received no complaints or violated no rules and had a really good buying and selling track record now according to the rules they have a three strike policy and I never even had 1 strike as I never received any warning of any behaviour I did wrong and the group rules state that you will be contacted if you violate a rule this never happened and the administrator was unable to give me a reason for my account suspension from the community the admins name is Lynn and she blocked me from even being able to contact her regarding this suspension this is really unbecoming behaviour and as a Admin of a large group you think her conduct reguarding this behaviour would be more professional. I either want account reinstated or a full explanation for suspension

Desired outcome: Reinstatement of account or proper reason for suspension

Wow. I see that I’m not the only person on Varagesale that has been treated unfairly by Lynn. So sad. I like the varagesale app and used it a lot. But some people working there and other people who are admins need to learn about customer service and how to treat people fairly. I will be posting my situation shortly.

The same thing happened to me around that exact same time by the same admin. Something is/was def wrong with her. She is no longer an admin on the site.

VarageSale My Membership

My complaint is against VarageSale Clarington and Beth Meadler. They removed me from VarageSale Clarington and Scugog. I sent a message to Beth to let her know that I would not be picking the item up and then I get a message from her telling me that based on my member account I have too many no shows. Then they remove me from Clarington and Scugog and I'm having trouble getting on Ajax and Oshawa. I have had many people say they are coming to pick an item up and then they don't show, I just take it back in my house and put it back for sale. I have picked up items that have missing parts and the people well not take it back and return my money now those people should be removed. I think people have the right to change their minds if they don't want that item anymore. I think she thinks that rather then sending her a message I should pick it up even if I don't want it. They just removed without any warning.
