Global Closeouts Scammed Me

When I bought a reconditioned refrigerator, I was sold an extended warrantee that was useless because Global Closeout told the warrantee company that the refrig was new. The refrig broke five months later and I'm stuck with the bill and most likely a lousy refrig. When I called GCR the reconditioning company, they told me that it's not their problem even though prior to purchasing the refrig, GCR assured me that there would be a seamless transition between their 90 day warrantee and the extended warrantee. GCR was not helpfull at all, I had to call back 4 times before they to get to the right person to tell me tough luck.

Carrie & PW,

I know of the person who ripped you off. He is a well known ***-artist in Sarasota/Bradenton. His name is Paul Golding. Paul was just arrested for ripping off a group of people.

Google: Paul Golding + Mugshot -- His information will come up. Get this guy as he's ripped off a ton of people, including myself.


Yes i was also scammed by Global Closeout like $400.00 dollars they have closed the doors in the old building desears in sarasota florida. I bought a computer that worked for only about 3 months and not working for about 8 months now i bought 2 year warranty but warranty not valid i am so mad that i was ripped off and BBB could not help unless i had a valid address for them well if i had that i wouldnt need the help of the BBB.At wits end.


I purchased an HP computer and ServicePak Protection Plan. The computer lasted from 12-26-09 till July 2010.

I contacted the warranty company(Banker's Warranty Group of

Florida) and guess what???? I had no plan even though I paid for it.

What a rip off. Lesson learned.

Warranties are not submitted imediately. As you were told they take roughly 8-10 weeks to be submitted, paid for, and processed. If you need to get ahold of Global Closeouts you can reach them at 1-88*-***-****
