Additional Complaint Information

On December 19, 2012, BBB contacted the firm regarding a pattern of complaints. Complaints concern ordered products are received damaged and refunds are not made in a timely fashion. Additionally, complaints allege that customer service representatives are very rude.

BBB requested the firm’s cooperation in resolving the underlying cause of the complaints and taking steps to correct the issues. The firm responded by stating, “I respond to all of our cases no matter how ridiculous they are. The need for my company to respond to lies and inaccurate events is beyond me.” The firm continued by stating that they have a 99% positive buyer experience on EBay and are a top rated seller with the highest buyer ratings.

On February 25, 2013, BBB responded that from information in BBB files, not all of the sales come through EBay. BBB requested the percentage of sales Blue Oval receives through EBay and stated that after reviewing the negative complaints/comments on EBay regarding their business, they are some of the same issues we receive as complaints. To date, we have not received a response to our request for additional information.
