Whenever I am asked what kind of credit cards I take I am suspicious. I called the number, it’s not working.
It’s always an urgent order and when they have an urgent order, it should raise the red flag to warn you of a possible scam. Every time we have been ripped off is when they need it right away, and if it’s out of the country, they will want to value it for nothing, so you are SOL when they say they did not get the package.
I check the location and Google reports that the HQ for JD Powers & Associates is 2625 Townsgate Rd, Westlake Village, CA 91361.
This jackarse is a scammer, looking for people who are stupid enough to take an order from him and we will start reporting everyone of them. Beware fellow business owner to avoid James Derrick, the scammer and the bogus JD Equipment & Supply.
There is a real JD Equipment and Supply in Puerto Rico, which appears to not be affiliated with this company. FYI.
