On December 12, 2008 I emailed RVEGINC through their ad on OLX.com about Disney videos and about the possibility of being delivered in time for Christmas. They were advertised as being shipped form New York. I received a very prompt and pleasant reply from a Donnie Hazel from [email protected] saying no problem if ordered by the 14th and to place my order through their rveginc.com website. I placed the order through Google Checkout the same day and received a confirmation that it had been received and $299.98 had been charged to my credit card. nOn December 13th I received comfirmation that my order had been shipped. There was no tracking number provided. On December 22nd I emailed them for a delivery status and tracking number and received no response. I checked the site a few days later and found a message stating they had gone out of business as of December 16th and if orders had not been received by December 26th to contact them for a refund and that this was not a scam. On the 26th I emailed them and gave them a day to reply and refund my money before I reported them to all available agencies. Still no response. I reported them to Google Checkout the 27th and received a response that they are no longer doing business with them. I also reported them to my credit card company and am waiting for a chargeback from them. nI did a little checking on my own and discovered the following: nDonnie Hazel has had at least 3 new online video companies registered in the last quarter of 2008, all are gone. The administrator for RVEGINC is Brandon Mitchell Watson and the domain was registered in California but my email to rveg was from Donnie Hazel from teeveedvds. The companies are rveginc.com, teeveedvds.com and royalvideo.us. By cross checking sites and info, despite using different addresses and the 2 names they all come back to: nDonnie Hazel n12A Amherst Ave nGreenville, SC, 29605nphone: (864) 283-6813 This info comes from a google search of Donnie Hazel from Greenville SC. nHe also has what appears to be a legitimate company: www.schoolhousebooks.net that has been in business longer. nRoyal Video, teeveedvds and schoolhousebooks all share the same address listed above. Teeveedvds and schoolhousebooks have the same phone number: 864-293-3113. Donnie Hazel and Royal Video have the same phone number. The only one that doesn’t match up is RVEGINC.com, registered in California by Brandon Watson but still located in Greenville, SC. But my email sent to RVEG was answered by Donnie Hazel from teeveedvds and proves the connection to all these companies. This has been a scam from the beginning. I found similar complaints of failure to respond or deliver against Royal Video and teeveedvds on other sites they used to “sell””
including ebay. Donnie Hazel is on myspace
facebook and many other sites so he is publicly accessible! nAs search of teeveedvds on whois.domaintools.com/teeveedvds.com shows that Donnie Hazel owns possible 14 other domains! A search for rveginc.com shows Brandon Watson has a possible 11. These guys are not done! I have reported them to google checkout and Visa. I will also file an online report with the FTC at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/. Another site to file a complaint with your state attorney general is www.consumerfraudreporting.org/stateattorneygenerallist.php. If anyone else who has been scammed has any other suggestions to shut these guys down please do what it takes to make them responsible for their fraud and prevent them from continuing to defraud more trusting buyers. nJmcstepnWashington Township
