Z BIDDY REVENGE. . . HAHA I WIN
Several weeks ago I wrote a hub about how I was totally ripped off by the auction site
I was hoping my hub would pop up on Google and warn some people away from the site.
To recap, I got on the sight because I was sucked in by a beautiful red blender. But I was immediately notified that I had insufficient credit, so I quickly got off the site. ( Still not sure how much credit you need for a blender) A month later I had a charge on my credit card for $99.00 from Zbiddy.
So, let me see, I had insufficient credit for a blender being auctioned at $2.00, but $99.00 for nuthin was cool.
Well, this old broad went to work searching out the location of Z biddy, then I wrote to three District Attorneys in three different districts of Florida and gave them an exact accounting of my sad story with Z biddy. You do stuff like this when you are retired and have a lot of time on your hands.
Eureka! I heard from all of them!
They sent forms to complete and questions to answer. I diligently filled out all the forms and answered all the questions. I mailed everything back with a photocopy of my bank account statement which showed a debit to Z Biddy in the amount of $99.00. This exact amount seems to be the rip-off-du-jour at Z Biddy.
Then I forgot about it. I mean who hears back from these kinds of complaints?
Today I got a check from the State of Florida, Department of Financial Services in the amount of $99.00.
The state of Florida aggressively went after Z Biddy, based on my and other ripped off folk’s complaints, actually recovered the money.
You go Florida, you rock.
I love fraud enforcement.
