Default What's wrong with gunbroker?

Anybody else been having problems with gunbroker? I'm new there. They have already charged me five dollars and that was before I even had a chance to verify my bank with them. They flagged it once, I fixed the problem (or so it seemed) and then they flag it again. And they will not get back to me! I don't want to use bad language so I will just say that I am really peeved off right now and use a mad face . Taking money without providing a service is a big business no no. And they are still taking a dollar a month as it stands. I have had relatives that say they never had problems when they opened their account years ago. So what's going on? Big brother stick a spur to them or what?

Are you selling or buying?
I've been with them for a while now (though I have never sold on gunbroker). They have to make a living and they get a commission on items sold or posted.

i have bought several items off of there and never been charged a dime by the actual gunbroker site. they do email me a statement from time to time but there is never a balance, always $0.00

i dont recall having to provide any financial info to setup an account either so I cant be sure how or why you got charged or incurred some sort of fee.

You can always get in touch with your credit card customer service
and have them nulled the pending monthly charges.

I haven't bought or sold anything yet. It's just getting the thing started that has been so much trouble. And I'm very paranoid when it comes to identity theft. A family friend handles computer security for large corporations and after going through some recent tactics that have been used by hackers it makes me nervous when things like this happen.

Hey! firearmstalk classifieds! Time to check that out.

Uh, I think you may need to up the number of posts first (around 25 posts are needed).

I don't use any thing online. Now if you can look and see who is selling and contact them personally, that's what I would do.

I've been completely wiped out of over 8k from someone hacking pay pal. Learned my lesson and thankfully got every red cent back.
