Is Frybrid.com scamming me? ( whining )
« on: June 06, 2010, 10:09:28 AM »
Yes I was so stupid as to order a custom WVO conversion kit from Frybrid in Seattle. On April 24 2009 I paid the #3087.00 dollars for the kit as required by frybrid. The reciet link was to updat on the order and never had an update or projection of when it would be delivered. By September 2009 I advised that in October I would be leaving for the south and would contact them when I returned. At that time I never gort a reply from the update  but Chris Goodwin on the forum stated that the tank was built but still needed a pickup . When I returned i sent a request for an update and finally on April 3 2010 chris stated a system was ready to go but gave figures for the wrong tank. I said I was happy with that and ship it out but Chris insisted on getting the right tank. By the end of April he stated the tank and kit were to be shipped by fedex but I never recieved anything so filed a complaint with the ATTY GEBERAL of WA and still nothing has happened.
My belief is that in his statements on the websit there is a 20 per cent charge if you request you money back and that is what he wants to do is have people request a refund and he makes 20 per cent profit for nothing. I can't say he is a crook but certainly is a jerk at least as I informed him last yeat I am 75 years old and dignosed with cancer so maybe he wants to wait till I kick the bucket and keep all the money. I had hoped to get the system installed and be able to do some traveling the las times of my life but he has screwed me there. He is  member of this forum and make drop in to tell some more lies to me here   Jerry

Jerry,

Has he charged your credit card yet? If so, that is breaking CC rules. He can only charge you when it has shipped. If it is a CC, charge (I hope for your sake it is), call your CC company. You could charge it back. If it was a check, I doubt there is much you can do.

Sorry for the troubles,

God bless,

John

I guess the worst part is the wasted time and nothing. Well he's got the money and I'll just have to build my own system. Jerry

Too bad.
I have a couple valves from them that have been bulletproof - bought them used off of a guy on Craig's list though. Never dealt with the company.
Every system that I have seen has had some flaw in my eyes, so I looked over them all and took the elements that I liked most from each and then built my own. I am in the process of doing another re-vamp to my current system now. THe technology is always improving.
Get your $$ back and start from scratch. Check out Greasecar (excellent with larger engine stuff) and get some good heavy-duty and stock parts. Have faith in your own ability. All of those companies were created by humans just like us! Ask for help - there are a few guys on the forum who are well versed in this stuff (browse through the archives) and look at schematics online.

Good luck!

The two companies I have ordered parts from are greasecar.com and omarsales.
com.  Both were spot on.  I had a problem with the lights circuit board on one if the valves.  Omar ivernighted three spare boards with just a phone call.  Very good service from both. 

I beleive you have some recourse with frybrid.  I would start by sending a demand letter by certified mail.  If you don't get your parts or money back then I would hammer him in court.  Check with local law and see where to go.  It could go into mail prefer fraud which is federal.  I would nit let him rest a day until I got my $3000 back.

That is a lot of $$$ to just sweep under the rug. I do as others have suggested and get after them.

Well the compaint to consumers affairs WA attorney General is still active. I could sue but that only nets you a piece of paper and spending more money on legal fees. Besides he's a carporation too. I'll just have to wait for the response from th AG. Jerry

While you wait you can beat them up on the Internet As well.  As you did here you can do a lot on other forums.  You can go to weebly.com and make your website for free.  You can post your story there and send it out.  I own my own business and complaints mean a lot to me.  I there is a problem I fix it immediately.  The dog world is a small one and an unanswered complaint could destroyy business.  How they can continue to operate is beyond me especially with the bad I have heard from a lot of folks.  After ag  gives you am answer I would continue to beat on their behind with everything I had.

Personally, I am averse to getting screwed unless it's my idea.  I am one of those people who, if I could, would spend $10,000 to recover the $3000 that was stolen from me, and consider it a bargain.

I would send them a Certified letter demanding full refund for failure to perform and demanding a response within ten days.  I would use the word "Demand" in each line and not accept anything less than a full refund, you no longer want any of the equipment ordered.

Might be beneficial to have a lawyer write the letter. Most people realize you're serious when they get that letter.

Good luck!

I am sure I am going to get flamed for this but I could not let $3000 go because someone refused to fill an order.  After legal means fells through me and my buddy Teerow would have to go visit.  Country arse whoopin delivered at the cost of $3000.

NEVER NEVER NEVER say that you will pay a visit and sort things out in person.  That is a CRIME and that very same DA that has no time for your "pissy little TORT" problem will burn the midnight oil to put together a prosecution.  Do it, of course....just never say you will. ;)

Might call and check on the DA's case load and staffing cuts of late and the time it takes to come to trial.  In this town the cops run their own shop and they pick and choose what to even accept a complaint on and they are very blunt about it.  Cop told me I could not file a complaint because HE didn't think, in his judgement, it had merit.  In "his judgement" was a accurate quote from that 21 year old's mount and these guys are legally bulletproof.

The attitude in most areas is that ALL the judges are PINKO LIBERALS and it is a sin to seat any more of them to rob honest citizens.  Shrink their "Gummint" budget, too.  Big and medium bidness corps are the most often sued so guess who benefits from that brainwashed attitude of contempt for the courts?
