Dan's warning to DDF:
I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

A story that ended up in court - https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/nyscef/DocumentList?docketId=iRcRHuyZUdOIx69D00a5XQ==&display=all&courtType=Kings%20County%20Supreme%20Court&resultsPageNum=1


I am one of the biggest buyers for buying groups, I have done millions in transactions and have sent to every group there is over the past 3 years. Most buying groups are okay, some scan in slower than others, some pay slower than others - most will lose a few packages over the year. You can research and find which are better for you.

However there is a bigger problem now with Amazon itself.  Amazon in the past has been great with any problems always ready with a refund for lost packages even if it was thousands of dollars. Lately Amazon has clamped down and has tagged these buying groups addresses  in their systems as "freight forwarder" and now no longer will fix any problem you have whatsoever. Doesn't matter what the problem is, even if it shows the package was never delivered, amazon will not help you in any way. Their copy and paste response will always be "this item was sent to a freight forwarder and we're unable to replace or refund the item. We recommend contacting your freight forwarder for more details, as we don't have any more insight or information regarding this matter, For more information about sending items via freight forwarders, please visit our Help Pages: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201117950." As well the amazon drivers either must know this or have been increasingly bad at delivering packages because the numbers of packages missing has gone up astronomically. Previously you would have very few packages missing, now the past 3 months I have had 59 "lost" packages. I now have over $15,000 of loses and some guy in Delaware is probably living the life with all the stuff he stole from me. I will survive, I have made a lot more than $15,000 over the years however just a warning to others here that things are not as they used to be and it really is no longer worth doing buring groups with all the loses piling up

It's on life support; but there's an easy way for them to (partially) fix it - stop doing Below Cost deals. But who knows if that works for them financially

The Deal Buyer or their new group "Buying Group". If the former, then it makes sense it bounced - that operation closed down.

Funny how not one other person with this issue and plenty of funds in the bank so you must be someone who dislikes us to come to a forum and not even open a ticket about it, as well as being a new account on here and your only post is about this proves my point of you being a competitor group who just isn't a fan of us and how strong we are in this industry ✌️ out

so hope you have great day and to everyone else as well have blessed day

if anyone ever does have a real problem you know how to get thru to us to resolve the problem

I actually really like using Tdb and I’m happy to hear it’s a me problem that will easily be fixed rather than a huge problem of people not getting paid.

I ordered a package from Amazon to MYS warehouse in DE, but they say it never arrived, and that the tracking says it was delivered at 615pm and they claim their warehouse is closed by then. UPS claims it was delivered and signed by "Quigley" which seems fake because it's the name of the street. however I only realized it wasn't delivered after the 30 days so Amazon is refusing to refund me, and UPS says they can not open a claim because Amazon doesn't let them. UPS emailed me a receipt/proof of delivery and interestingly enough they only have the address but not the suite number, does that mean Amazon never gave UPS the suite number which is on y account? should I dispute the cc charge due to them giving UPS the wrong address?
any help or similar stories is appreciated.

Of course, but you only have five posts and just joined #shill
Huh? I'm sharing my experience. I have no connection with any bg's. You may have more posts because of worthless posting above.

Back to the point..... My experience with uearnpoints has been overall good. Have sent them a few Amazon devices from Kohl's and Target after the TV's. These items were checked in a few days after delivery to Germay warehouse. Payments also slowing down but still reasonable.

Highly recommend using MaxoutDeals, especially if you live in the area, they will pay you check on spot.

Judging by the number of new posters plugging different BGs, feels like the business model not doing too well.
