I got taken in by this scam. Unfortunately, I failed to do some research before agreeing to surrender my credit card number. Hear is my story, I hope it helps others facing the same situation.
I recieved a phone call from a nice woman named Masha. Se was curious if my 2005 350Z Roadster was still for sale. I said it was.
She gave me her sales pitch about Great Cars and Trucks and what they could do for me, specifically sell my vehicle to a person who had been pre-approved for financing by them. All for a mere $169.00 commission on the sale. So I asked 'After I sell the vehicle, you take the commission right? '
Wrong! She told me the commission had to be paid upfront, otherwise how were they sure to get there money. That is NOT a commission.
I did research after speaking with Masha and called a couple of listings in my area and both the people said the company was a rip off. There were no buyers lined up and they had not received any calls. Furthermore, they said to get their money back was almost impossible.
I sent an e-mail to the company within 24 hours cancelling my ad (before it appeared) and they said I couldnt do that. I let them know in Colorado you have 72 hours to rescind a contract and they didn't care; another example of a company with sketchy business practices.
Luckily my credit card company will dispute the charge and will not pay them but I still have to go through the hassle of providing my correspondance.
Do Not Work with this company!
