February 2, 2012 – Conway, SC

The Better Business Bureau of Coastal Carolina is issuing a warning about a local business that hasn’t been delivering on its orders.  Over the past five months, nine (9) complaints have been reported to the BBB concerning B&T Commodities, also known as B&T Electronix or Lawson Electronix, owned by Timothy Lawson.  Of the nine (9) complaints, five (5) have gone unanswered by the company, which lowered their rating to an ‘F’.  The concern about the business has risen due to the fact that all of the complaints are similar in nature, and that they have stopped responding to the BBB altogether. 

Consumers from Utah, Alabama, California, North Carolina, New Jersey, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New York have ordered products via B&T’s websites, paid for their purchases, but never received anything in return.  The majority of the purchases made from the company’s websites were HP Touchpads, and the costs of the orders vary from $120 to $400. 

The business responded to the first four (4) complaints that the BBB received, but then stopped communicating with us and with their customers.  B&T has removed all of their websites, any information on their Facebook pages, and their phone numbers are no longer working.  The BBB has tried contacting the business by phone, mail and e-mail, but communication has been returned. 

B&T has also claimed, in their advertising, that they are BBB Accredited with an A+ rating.  This is false.  B&T Commodities, B&T Electronix, or Lawson Electronix is NOT Accredited with the BBB of Coastal Carolina, and has the worst rating possible: an ‘F’.
