i'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with ths site:

it seems to have pretty reasonable deals and doesn't look too sketchy. i'm thinking of getting an eMac. i just don't want to get shafted.

Quote:
Owner: Mr. Dave Wegener
Business Classification: Computers-Dealers

Customer Experience:

Based on BBB (Better Business Bureau) files, this company has an unsatisfactory record with the Bureau due to unanswered and unresolved complaints. The company has resolved some complaints presented by the Bureau, however, the company did not respond to other complaints.

The Bureau processed a total of 10 complaints about this company in the last 36 months, our standard reporting period. Of the total of 10 complaints closed in 36 months.

These complaints concerned:

2 Sales Practice Issues
1 Delivery Issues
1 Product Issues
1 Refund or Exchange Issues
2 Customer Service Issues
3 Service or Repair Issues

They were closed as:

2 Resolved
8 No Response

This report is actually worse than it appears here as Wegener Media has moved twice since the first complaint was filed (of the 10 listed) Wegener Media actually has (3) separate reports at the BBB of South Carolina website with a total of 11 complaints that are known. The BBB only has a (3) year reporting period. Wegener Media claims to have been in business since 1990.

That does it for me. I have a few rules that I live my life by and one is that I don't do business with anyone that SUCKS DONKEYBALLS!

Hasn't failed me yet.

Nice work BV.

This quote is more sinister:

I'm planning to do an update soon about how an attorney of Wegener tried to bribe me to take this article down and how David Wegener filed a false and libelous police report on me with the Cayce South Carolina Police Dept.
