I bought from ABE books ten years ago when they were a local US business and everything was fine. They have been bought by some entity with no ethics who protects sellers when they commit fraud. They are fraudulent themselves as I logged on after several years and bought a out of print book - I THOUGHT it was a NY seller. They were in fact Brits hiding behind a NY address. So when I see the CC charges, ABE has tacked on a extra fee for foreign currency exchange. It was about 10% of the price. Nice scam.
Now I wait three weeks. Finally it arrives from the UK and it's a fake. A PHOTOCOPY of an INCOMPLETE book they pulled off of GOOGLE books. It's missing pages (uh, yeathat's what Google Books does to protect themselves.) Guess they didn't even bother to read what they copied or the index would have tipped them off that half the book was missing. I filed for a refund. weeks go by. I get an email saying they are refunding my $$ to my credit card. Weeks go by, no refund.
The fact that ABE even allows foreign sellers to hide should be enough to let you know what their ethics are. Stay away.
What product did you purchase or try to purchase? out of print book
