View Full Version : The mailman is in on it too!
04-19-2002, 07:11 AM
Well guess what showed up at my door unannounced the other day? COD package from GER!!!! I had a nutty on the poor mailman. Those jerks in PA sent it PRIORITY COD after 4.5 months at MY expense! No phone call, no email - just sent the converter back. After I calmed down the mailman told me that they would hold it until I contacted GER and found out what the scoop was. I wanted to find out if they repaired the damn thing before I forked the dough over. When I asked the woamn how they could charge me for priority shipping after such a long wait she just said that's how we send them. $40 for shipping! Cost me $11 to send it! My only options are to pay for it and try to get reimbursed or refuse it all together. I know one thing - it is going for sale cheap on Ebay (with caveat). If I wasn't half Scottish I would melt it down in a bonfire ceremony!

I'd refuse it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F_ _ _ k them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'd have to agree with Mr. Bill on this one

Let them keep their stuff Mark. It would just be more bad money spent to get it.
Wow, this is bad; all the players are in agreement?;)

I bet they sell it to someone as new when they get it back :O

GER SELLS NOTHING BUT TROUBLE , THERE CONVERTERS ARE JUNK. HAVE YOU EVER TALKED TO THE GUY THAT RUNS THAT PLACE , HE SOUNDS LIKE A REAL BONE HEAD!!!!!!!!!!! DAN

Oh I know I did some checking on them a while ago thats why I didn't buy any of there junk.

Went to the PO and paid the $54 COD charge for my GER package and guess what? I was suspicious about it and my intuition was correct - the bastards didn't even cut the thing open!!!! They threw it in a box and sent it back with no comment at all! Called them up and got put on hold AGAIN. Hung up and called back and told the woman that I am through dealing with them and now they WILL BE SUED! Oh yeah - I put a stop payment on the check which cost $25 but is worth it to keep this scum from getting any money from me! They are so sleazy they put a date of Dec. 17, 2001 on the invoice which they mailed out April 15th! THEY WILL PAY! :mad:
Being half Scottish is costing you some $$$$$$$$$
Seems like they're good at stalling and slippage.... just too bad it's not with the converter innards.:mad:

"Well a person who saw my 4 month ordeal with GERs bogus 5 year warrany (Richie) said he complained to the Penn. Consumer Protection agency and actually got a check from them!!!I just got through filling out my complaint form online I have no idea if it will do any good but at least they gotta deal with the attorney generals office a little..here is their site..just go to the bottom of the page and choose online complaint form and then just follow the directions"

Dave thanks for the info but I filed a complaint quite some time ago and it's almost as bad as dealing with GER themselves! They haven't returned my calls either! I'm pushing to have them put out of business. It's not right.
05-03-2002, 01:35 PM
Well, I finally got a call from the PA AG's office and the woman told me she is waiting to hear back from GER! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Sorry - couldn't help myself! I told her "Good Luck" because they NEVER called me in 4.5 months! And I asked her how many other complaints have been filed against them and she wouldn't say. I won't rest until they are out of business! Later :D

Dave - you made my day! :D

GER update (is this like a soap or what?) - they have agreed to replace my broken 8" converter with a new one. Anyone looking for a cheap converter? :rolleyes:

Trouble is the BAST---S Have probably already gotten rich off from guys like us . When ever I see there stuff for sale on Ebay I try to put in A good word for them to the bidder. There reputation should get the best of them eventually . We'll have to watch out that they don't come back with A different name. Pay the extra and buy from reputable companies is the safe bet. DAN

the old saying when the ads aprices are to good to be true they usually are, these guys having benn peddlin junk i have never heard a good thing for 10years now poor Mark gets anew junk converterrt thast he probably cant sell , or maybe he wouldnt put the racer through that hassle, no win situation higgy

Well, it almost took a year but GER finally sent me a replacement 8" converter. You better believe I will not be using it. Maybe I can ask for donations and have a bonfire ceremony to burn it so someone else doesn't have to experience their "great service"? If not it is gonna be sold with a disclaimer for sure. Cheap.

I've been biting my tounge on this one but I have to ask,,, GEEEEERRRRR has been arround for quite sometime now and they have and still are producing junk, why would you buy anything from them let alone send something back to be fixed, it was broken to start with????? OUCH!!!!
10-17-2002, 02:13 PM
Mark, or anyone else for that matter, I have a super sale on a slightly used B&M 608, no reasonable offer will be refused......... ask Top 38 how great they are........ Rich D
