TDW Closeouts - The Discount Warehouse, Inc., and My Dealings With Them

Saturday, April 08, 2006

Time To Air This Out!

Well, as requested by Raphael Shabtai of The Discount Warehouse through Martine, I went through inventorying the merchandise I still have (which is the bulk of it), and I checked out what it would cost to ship it to Sunrise, Florida. When I sent the information to TDW, they asked me to send the merchandise to them and then they would make me a refund. How ludicrous is that? They must think I hit myself in the head with a hammer when I wake up in the morning! I am not that addled. I refuse to spend $760.00 out of my own pocket to ship the stuff back to them, and they say they are trying to make me a refund. Raphael himself won't even get on the phone with me to say how much he is offering for getting the merchandise back. I informed him through Martine that there was no way I was sending the merchandise back, unless they wired me a full refund of $2,400.00 + $760.00 for the shipping. I offered to keep and dispose of it myself, if they wanted to refund the $2,400.00 only. I haven't heard from either of them since.

I have decided that if I can't get a refund, that the least I can do is provide a public service in exposing them to the world, so others won't get caught up in this headache.

If I can get them exposed on "60 Minutes" or other news magazine TV show, who knows, maybe we will get to see guilty parties do a perp walk on TV.

If you have had problems with TDW, or their counterparts in other businesses, please join me in writing to:

  • I was rip-off in 01/06. I was supposed to be buying $3000 worth of Sears electronics through "The Discount Warehouse". I was promised that the 3 pallet lot I was buying was to include DVD players, TV's, stereos and various other home electronics.

    I got about $250 worth of microwaves and HIS OLD OFFICE EQUIPMENT!

    I just filed a Small Claims Court lawsuit against TDW.
    i WILL BUILD WEB PAGE THAT WILL COME UP IN THE SEARCH ENGINE BEFORE TDW WEB SITE TO GET PEOPLES ATTENTION.I be glad to add link to this blog on the web page

  • I am so sorry Jerzy to hear that there are so many others that have been ripped off by TDW. I cannot believe that I didnt look for all of this information before I bought from the S*%T company. I would love to be part of any class action lawsuit against this slimy company. I am currently in the process of two BBB compalints against TDW. Fat chance of getting anything huh? I purchase 2 pallets of Federated Domestics. TWO can you believe it. I actually took the bait with the 300.00 credit and bought another. Silly me!! Buyer Beware. Thank you for this post, please contact me so I can be included in the law suit and good luck.
