One Online Site You Want to Avoid When Purchasing
Lubbock, TX: Better Business Bureau® serving the South Plains of West Texas is warning about Easy Yard Sale, an online company with alleged false credentials.
The company serves as an intermediary between consumers and the seller. The consumer is lured by the reasonable prices online, then shortly asked to register with the business and wire money to the United Kingdom for items their business claims to have in possession there. As a middle man company, money is taken from the consumer first before the product is delivered.
The seller says you need to wire the purchase price to Easy Yard Sale, and they will handle the rest. After you pay up, Easy Yard Sale and the seller both stop responding. The consumer will never receive the item and tracking down your money will be extremely difficult.
Easy Yard Sale created a false BBB Business Review and Rating, claiming to be accredited. BBB believes images and customer reviews used on the company’s website have been altered. One customer review claimed, “Their simple but effective methods caught my attention in the first place and I was amazed on how quick the transaction went. They most definitely are NOT a scam.”
