Complaint Review: Tom and Jodie Bowman - Franklin Furnace Ohio

Reported By:
- Dickinson, TX,

Tom and Jodie Bowman
1955 Snook Rd. Franklin Furnace, 45629 Ohio, U.S.A.
Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
Five or so weeks ago I bid on a cordless telephone and was out bid by

another user. A couple of days later I was contacted by e mail by the

seller stating that he had another phone just like the one I had bid on.

And he would sell it to me for the same amount as my last bid. Being

a new user to e-bay I didn't know this was against policy and I agreed.

I sent the money order and two or so weeks later received the phone. My

wife and I immediately realized that the phone had been unboxed and

reboxed several times, and was not new as advertised. That was o.k.

since it was still in good shape and we needed a phone. I charged the

phone as per the instructions and tried to use it. The phone did not work

so I called Bell South to get help. I did what they told me to and they

determined that the telephone had a frequency misalignment and that

it could never had worked with this problem. I have to tell you, we were

pretty disappointed. At this time I got back on e bay and discovered that

this seller had in excess of thirty negative complaints and many were

for the exact problem I was having regarding cordless phones, and that

according to the reports he refused to do anything about it. So I'm pretty

pissed, now knowing that I am just one more of his cordless phone

victims. I sent him a not so nice letter expecting (hopeing) that the response

might be to (as I requested) exchange the broken one for a phone that

worked. Well he pompously responded that he would come to Texas

from Ohio and take the broken phone back and give me my money back

in person. I told him that as much as would like that it is probably very

unlikely and asked him three more times how he intended to rectify the

problem. He responded all three times with the same answer. Since I

am an ex police officer I decided to investigate this guy further. I e mailed

twenty nine other victims whos e mail addresses I got from e bay feedback.

The result is (and I will be more that happy to send the e mails I recieved to

you) that I am not the only person he has contacted this way and ripped off

like this with such a careless cavalier so what attitude. This seems to be

a pattern with this guy. He is not only sending out none functioning

merchandise and doesn't care that he is, he has no remorse, no regret

concerning the fact. Crooks like him should not be allowed to operate period.

I have e mailed both e bay and the postal inspectors office and both brushed

me off. I assume they have bigger fish to fry. So, this crook gets to operate

this way and no one cares. He gets to make a living ripping people off. This

is a sad, a sad state of affairs. That this, our society has gotten to the point

that its O K to steal as long as its not to much money and its not me.

Please help me and all of the other victims get our money back and maybe

stop this guy.

This crooks name and address is:
