I ordered a new computer from Walmart not realizing this was a third party situation. I cannot return it at the store and 6Ave won't even call me back. I really hope someone cracks down on companies like this. Or, maybe karma will take care of them.

6ave is a con artist. They intentionally scam a small percentage of buyers to make up the margin. The majority of buyers would not have problems, but a small number of us will be victims for sure. That's their business model. That's how they undercut everyone's prices. Guess what, I bought from them many times without problem and finally my number is up. Just got scammed. They sent a defective Canon RF 24-105mm and claim the returned RF 24-105mm's serial number does not match (they accused me of switching the lens), which is a blatant lie, 1000% false. Now it makes sense.
What they're doing is criminal. When we buy from these guys, we take a chance with our money and support their unethical business practice. No more from me for sure! They're at this for a long time they know the system. They invent documentation/s for disputes. If you go to disputes with eBay, Rakuten... etc, they show their phony document/s and you are screwed. Stay away. A federal investigation is necessary. State authority must look into this business! How do we start one?

I bought this magic keyboard Swedish from 6th Ave Electronics on Google Express. Some key did not work and I contacted Apple and provided the serial number of this keyboard. Unfortunately the serial number on the product is not in Apple's system and obviously company is selling fake product. When I contacted them they said the product is beyond return time. That is ok but they wanted to provided me with another serial number which did not belong to this product and asked me to claim it with Apple. It's totally dishonest merchant and please avoid buying from them in the future.

I understand that most companies have a (blank) percentage re-stocking fee... But at 30%?!?! That is STEALING from the customer! There was no disclosure when I bought it! And even after returning the item, in new condition, they would not return it! I could have sold it for almost as much as they wanted it, and I would not have lost $300+ dollars!! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!!! SPEND YOUR MONEY WITH B&H OR ADORAMA!!! They do care about the customer, and do not try to rip you off on any returns you may have.

Lack of disclosure. FRAUD. Claim was filed with SquareTrade. Information from Square Trade they had a different purchaser and different Email. Copy of payment mailed out by Square Trade did not have my signature or mailing address. Identity Fraud, Deceptive practices. Samsung advised not covered not aUTHORIZED SELLER. SQUARE TRADE NOT COVERED DUE TO PREVIOUS claim FILED. Name, address, product did not match my purchase or name Reported to FTC. They should be banned from selling on eBay. Anybody with a problem should flood FTC with letters, emails, letter to ABC Action news. Hit them where it hurts. eBay feedback is false. Read website complaints. They probably stay in business for a short time, scam people and then move on to so other trusting person.

I bought the camera referenced above and it arrived, new, all accessories present and functioned as expected. The issue came up when I went on the Panasonic website to register this camera for the warranty. 6th Avenue Electronics was not listed as an authorized retailer. This may just be glitch on Panasonic's website or 6th Avenue Electronics is unaware of this issue. Warranty registrations are usually instantaneous, but it has been five days and Panasonic has not confirmed my warranty.

I ordered a Canon SL2 camera bundle through Overstock. Got it and stuff was missing. No viewfinder cover, no camera cap, and one battery was missing. The one battery and charger I did get was a knock off when they advertised them as Canon brand. SD card I got was also a knock off and one of the mini SD cards. They have no customer service and will not answer calls, messages on Facebook, emails, or messages on Overstock. Hopefully Overstock will fix this seeing seller Isn’t.

Bought a top quality model Dyson vacuum. Was supposed to be new. Had scratches all over, items in box without proper padding (appeared used). Vacuum broke 1 months after purchase (shoots debris out the back). 6th Ave denies it was refurbished. Bought at Overstock.com. Overstock takes no responsibility for product because they sold through 3rd party. Dyson takes no responsibility because 3rd party. 3rd party 6th Ave states past 30 day return. WILL NOT do anything for broken product. I should have known when I opened box. Customer Service very rude, laughing, uninterested in my complaint. Buyer beware. Do not buy product if 6th Ave is 3rd party. They DO NOT CARE about customers after the sale is made. I will be careful in the future to not purchase from a 3rd party.

I purchased a Nikon CoolPix A900 online from Google 6th Avenue Electronics. The camera arrived with a power plug for India. Warranty card as well from India. I didn't think anything of this because in the past Nikon supports their products world-wide. After 5 weeks a defect in the camera appeared. Nikon USA returned it to me stating it is grey market and not authorized for sale in USA and therefore will not be repaired. 6th Avenue refuses to accept the product back stating I had 30 days to return it. Sorry! Today I see a sticker on the bottom of the box in effect stating the product is not legal for sale in the USA and the warranty may not be honored. Great. Thanks Google/6th Avenue Electronics for selling illegal products. Caveat emptor does not apply to deceptive sales and marketing scams.

6th Ave refused to refund me 20% of my $1400 order that was defective. This was an Apple product that I had confirmed with Apple over the phone. Apple even told me to return it to the seller for a refund. This was 100% defective. Their policy states they will NOT charge a restocking fee on a defective item. It is apparently widespread that people are returning defective items to 6th Ave and 6th Ave is refusing to let go of a restocking fee. Do not buy from this company. Your assurance in a smooth process if you receive a less than perfect product will be pure disappointment. Please don't make the same mistake I, and countless others, made.

One "new" camera had no serial number, and another stopped working next day. I know it has been a year since we last did business, but I thought I would leave a message here before I did the youtube video regarding the product I received from you. That's right that "Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only) (322473578696) I bought from you for $1,785.21 that has no serial number underneath it and anywhere on the box.
Well guess you had planned to get away with it, since the likeliness anyone would check under the camera for a serial number would be highly unlikely, till it was either broken or stolen. Well turns out Lumix put out update 2.0 which has a new tether feature that requires the serial number to download, and guess who's "brand new" camera has no serial number? Mine. The one you sold "new". I wanted to out you back when I received the open box, without the lens, but knowing I ordered the body only, this had not been a problem till now. So you got us good, hopefully now people will know better.

Not a quality retailer, bait and switch - I ordered through their link on Rakuten.com, and they did not indicate that it was used/refurbished, nor the international version. They sent one that was apparently part of a kit with a lens, and the lens removed. I don't know the status of the camera with respect to warranty, and suspect it's an international version.

“**WATCH OUT** This is a SCAM** When you go to purchase this USED lens, as a U.S. Version (meaning, the lens came to America through official Tamron USA means - aka NOT through Grey Market means), you will actually receive a Grey Market Lens. I purchased this lens, thinking it was a great deal for a "like new" used U.S. Version lens, but it was gray market. Total scam, so disappointing. Also, the customer support knows they are doing this and they TRY to charge you a restocking fee when you return it. DON'T LET THEM!! I purchased through Amazon and KNEW they would protect me and they eventually agreed to not charge any fees to return it.”

Before I begin be wary of any customer service line that's only available during the hours of 10am to 3pm (5 hrs) weekdays only. Also if you are being transferred to a "manager" and it last longer than 10min get ready for a doozy of an explanation. I purchased this item on a Monday 7:30am (1 week ago). Before I made the order, it stated that the item had more than 10 available and the location is the U.S.A. Granted it gave a shipping date as little as 3 days to approx 14 days to receive. When I was about make the purchase, I made sure to locate where the store is. Once I found out that it is in the east coast, I figured most likely even in ground shipping it won't take but a few days. So the 3 day window was a time I felt I would get it (boy was I wrong).
When the next day past, I looked in my eBay account and saw no action has been made. 24 hrs has past and still no update! I contacted customer service and this guy tells me that the product is unavailable in stock and they are waiting for more product later in the week. I explain to him that as we spoke, it is showing that the item is available on eBay. There is nothing stating that the item is backordered. I hung up and began to write them a later via eBay. Not two hours later, I received a notice that a label was made and item was shipped out.
I waited two days and it's still showing on UPS that no item has yet been dropped off to them to be shipped. I called the company again, was transferred to their "manager" which took about 10min on hold. Her response was classic. Apparently, the camera is in stock. However, the product they got is in Japanese language. How a company of that size can mess up an order and get Japanese language is beyond me. Nevertheless, why not let the customer know that something was screwed up. Which her response was, "Well you know that before you made the order, you had a 3 day to 14 day window" which I responded back saying "Well ma'am while you are correct, let's say for humor sake if the item "wasn't" in Japanese language when will my shipment be sent out?" She said, "Immediately." After that I hung up. It seems if the company messes up, we as a consumer suffers.
I've ordered from places in California using ground. It didn't take more than 3 days. Why a company that keeps stating they have warehouse all over the country, will ship an item and it will take probably 2 weeks is beyond me. Fyi: apparently if a company prints a label out, doesn't necessary mean they have to ship it out right away. I was told over the phone they can send it out anytime they feel like it. My first and last time I will ever use this company. Utter nonsense. Update: It's been already a week and no shipment has been sent out.

While they "stated" they would refund the camera, they have stalled for two weeks about getting the shipping label to me for the refund. eBay only keeps documentation now so you have to skip them and go directly to PayPal and your credit card company for best results.

In September 2011, I purchased an LG TV from 6th Ave Electronics on Rt. 1, Woodbridge, NJ. I also purchased a 5-year extended warranty - $149.99, covered by Consumer Priority Service (CPS) in Brooklyn, NY. Just the other day, I was looking through my online account with CPS & I see that my warranty is now void. I sent CPS an email asking why my warranty is now void. I received their reply: "The warranties have been voided because although you paid for the warranties, the dealer did not pay us for them. And we did not inform any of the customers affected." So now, I paid for something I'm not getting. Very poor business practice on the part of 6th Ave Electronics & CPS. Is there anything I can do to get my money back?
