Ordered boxes from Peek packaging. They said they were the manufacturer

Of the boxes. They sent me a quote-and gradually that quote started getting larger and larger. It started out as $5600 ended up being $9700-plus plus. Anyways they send me the boxes and by accident they left an invoice from Golden Rule Packaging in San Marcos California. The quote was for $6000. Basically he was making a huge percentage as a MIDDLE MAN!! When I first contacted them they said they WERE the manufacturer. So perhaps before using Peek packaging and Mr Bob Peek-you may want to shop around and get the best deal. The staff were friendly enough to confirm all these details.

Overcharged. ripped off! scammed.

We ordered boxes from Peek packaging. they told us that they were the manufacturer, they said its so hard to make these boxes. We ended up ordering boxes after several design attempts-for which we paid for. When the boxes arrived they were NOT as good as Misty and Gregg two staff members said they would be. Then we find out that Peek is NOT a manufacturer but simply a middle man. The boxes cost Peek $2.67 and they sold to us for $8.70. Now if this was a factory that paid for staff machines wear and tear lighting, waste "slippage" etc we understand the difference between cost and sales price, but this is not the case with Peek packaging. When we tried to negotiate with them they refused. We spoke to Misty and Gregg who both said that Bob Peek was a very un reasonable person and they hated working there. Anyways we offered Peek a fair profit, or to return the boxes-instead Bob Peek started accusing us and threatened to call the FBI! What kind of a business person does this? Anyways before you do business with Peek look to Utah to buy your boxes and other products that is where they buy their finished goods from. It will save you a lot of money and hassle.

My company, Peek Packaging inc, was contracted to design a custom retail package designed to make his weight loss program looks more expensive. The original request was made in May of 2013. Over the course of the summer, we designed structural samples for Emile Bouari company, Weight loss Co and NXTREVENUE

All cost for the design portion were explained and outlined in estimates. Emille Bouari approved the estimate and we proceeded with several versions of the project. Once his approval was given on the structral design, we supplied the die for his graphic artist to apply the graphics electronically. We sent back to Emile Bouari at the Weight Loss Comapny a digitol proof for his approval. We also supplied a written quote for manufacturing. This was also approved by Emile.

The type of packaging that was designed was a rigid set up box. Not an inexpensive box as it is hand wraqpped at the volumes they need. As he has stated in unproffessional text's and emails" I dont know much about packaging and prices"

We had his approved packaging manufactured and delivered to his facility. We went to charge his approved credit card and it was declined. We spent 45 days emailing, calling and texting and could not get a response. he went dark. As he has stated to me it was my fault we didnt ask for payment before we shipped.

It wasn'tuntil I contacted the FBI in las Vegas and other entities that he started a conversation. Apparently its all my fault that we didn't charge before we sent the project. I would copy emails and communications that we have on file but it has already been forwarded to the proper authorities.

You can reach me at 760438**** if you would like to discuss in person.

His claims are childlike and unfounded.

I hope this helps you in determining whether you would ever do business with Emile Bouari, Weight Loss Company or NXTREVENUE. Dig a little deeper into these companies and the responses will speak to themselves.
