Original Complaint against Abe's of Maine published at Scamity.com on 22-Jul-14 says, verbatim –
On 7/16/2014 I ordered a Sony model SNKDL55w950B tv online from Abe’s of Maine, The advertised price was 1249.00 with free shipping, and I recieved an order number and conformation. | | On 7/17/2014 I recieved a call from a gentleman named David who told me that the tv I ordered was the commercial model that did not come with any warranty or any of the 3d glasses or accesories that the residential model comes with. | | He also informed me that I would have to pay insurance on the shipment incase of damage, which I agreed to since I read it on the website. He then told me that the price of the residential model of this tv that came with all the accessories was 1699.00, but that he would cut me a break and sell it to me for 1499.00 plus the shipping. He then tried to get me to agree to extended warranty and a host of other cables and items I was not interested in. | | I went ahead and agreed to pay the 1499.00 for the tv and 44.97 for the shipping insurance , to which came to a total of 1543.97 on my credit card. I did this as I had seen the tv advertised a lot of other places for anywhere from 1599.00 to 1899.00. | | After I thought about it a little bit I went back and checked my paperwork that I had printed off and their ad that is posted on the internet clearly states that it is the same model tv that is on the order I agreed to for the 1499.00 and the 1249.00 price tv is the exact same model number and shows on the website that it comes with all the 3d glasses and accessories! | | The order is supposedly on its way to me and I intend on keeping the tv , I just feel I was baited and switched out of a couple of hundred dollars on this deal!!! Buyers Beware of this company.!!!!
