Transmission SCAM!

My ordeal with this SCAM tranny business has been an ongoing nightmare for over 3 months. They've sent me a cracked tranny and tried to blame it on the shipping company, then sent me one which I installed only to have a leaky input seal, and now won't return my $750 core deposit. PLEASE BEWARE, avoid them at all costs. They can be found mostly on Ebay and other online listings.

The fraudulant company out of Tampa, FL goes by the names of:

Get IT Right Transmissions
Tranz Parts
One Time Transmissions
Best Deal

All of the names have been linked back to the same @ssholes by the Better Business Bureau, which have subsequently given this company and F rating. They have multiple complaints against them and refuse to resolve them. Why have a BBB, if they refuse to chut these guys down or fine them into bankruptcy

Here's there BBB report http://www.bbb.org/west-florida/busi...pa-fl-90034820

They're a SCAM no doubt, beware and learn from my $2,200 mistake!

Yeah, and come to find out these guys are under investigation by Ebay and Paypal, both of who have suspended their accounts. But it's always easy to just open an account under a new name.

exactly! and they are so very difficult to track down, but at least you got a couple parts out of them. I spend $3000 and never saw the vehicle.

Wanna Help?

If you can put a pistol in someone's mouth and kindly requesty a refund, please let me know. They now hang up the phone on me as soon as I tell them who I am.

I filed a BBB complaint, but have little faith anything will happen since it's their 37th case against them.
