Re: EV-Charge America EV2104: Complete Review!

Fri Jul 15, 2011 8:09 am

i ordered the ev 2104 unit a month ago, have repeatedly sent emails and called with no return of my calls, and have not received the unit in the mail and i do not know where to turn. i paid by check and bob rosinski said to mail him the check to the las vegas address and he would send the unit. WHAT IS GOING ON/ WHY DO THEY NOT RESPOND TO EMAILS AND WHY DO THEY NOT RETURN PHONE MESSAGES? HAVE I BEEN TOTALLY RIPPED OFF? IS THIS A FICTIONAL COMPANY??? I JUST STANDING HERE AND GOT A CANCELLED CHECK IN HAND THAT CLEARED THE BANK WEEKS AGO AND NO MERCHANDISE EVER SHIPPED TO ME? SO I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO THINK AS THEY DO NOT RETURN ANY PHONE CALLS AND DO NOT BOTHER TO RETURN ANY EMAILS.......... MAX BRADEY PLANNING TO USE IT WITH NISSAN LEAF. SO IF YOU ARE READING THIS........I WOULD SAY DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I MADE AND ORDER ONE BY MAILING IN A CHECK....... HOPEFULLY THE FOLKS AT EV CHARGE AMERICA WILL READ THIS FORUM AND GET UP WITH ME....... MAX BRADEY :evil:

Yelling at us isn't going to help. All the caps accomplished was getting me to skip most of your post.

Sorry to hear of your troubles Max,

There are plenty of scammers out there in this business, and after the many problematic reviews I've read of this company and it's products, I can only hope no one else will blindly send them money. If there is every ANY question about the reputation of a seller, be sure to use a credit card, as you have recourse if you are scammed.

Max, if you don't get any resolution, let us know over at EVSE Upgrade and we'll take care of you and get you a new 16 amp unit at a discount. I hate to see good people be taken advantage of which is why I came up with the upgrade in the first place.

My EV-ChargeAmerica Experience

I have just come to the realization that I too may be out over $700 for an EV-ChargeAmerica home charger that I ordered for my new Nissan Leaf. I have not been able to get any response from the company via phone or e-mail and I foolishly sent them a check even though that should have set off alarm bells. I checked on the Better Business Bureau site and it appears that now even they are unable to get a response from the company to try and resolve customer issues.

Initially, I thought I was making a good decision. I had called and left a message, then Bob Rosinski returned my call. He certainly seemed knowledgeable and he answered all my questions on the design of the unit. I guess that his demeanor along with my desperate need to obtain a level 2 charger caused me to agree readily to send a check as opposed to using a credit card. He said something about their web site not being set up for them yet. He said they had been slammed with orders and there would be a two to three week lead time to ship my unit. Well, that time has come and gone and still no charger.

I couldn’t order an upgraded Nissan Factory charger from Phil at EVSE Upgrade because he couldn’t accept orders at that time. Now that is exactly what I intend to do!

**********LET'S FIGHT BACK!**********

Hello pkitchen, DarkStar, TopCatLeaf and EdBlackmond,

I believe we are all in the same boat and have been defrauded by Mr. Robert Rosinski DBA EV-Charge America. I plan on pursuing this issue and would like to know if others would be interested in joining me in an effort to get our money back from them for their failure to deliver products we have paid for.

Since there appears to be a repeated pattern of behavior (with at least the five of us) that could be considered not just as a civil matter but if we are able to gather more information we may be able to file a criminal complaint for fraud against Robert Rosinski and EV-Charge America.

If you are interested in joining me in this effort, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Corey Ferguson

UPDATE:

I was able to get PayPal to open a fraud claim against EV-Charge America and after their investigation PayPal refunded all of the money I paid for the EVSE. I also filed claims with the Las Vegas Better Business Bureau and with www.IC3.gov. I was very fortunate to get my money back. Obviously I do not recommend anyone else consider doing business with EV-Charge America.

Contact the District Attorney for information. I know they can help with bounced checks, certainly too many on this website have been defrauded. Do it quickly.

Corey & All,
I too ordered a unit from EV-Charge America and never received it.
They don't answer calls or emails at all anymore.
Keep us posted as to what action we can take (or join) to recover our losses.
To all others - BEWARE
Protect yourself and buy from well known folks with good references.

If you have been defrauded by EVCA you should file a complaint with www.IC3.gov. IC3 works in conjunction with the FBI. If you payed by PayPal call their Customer Support number and speak to a dispute specialist or supervisor in the Protection Services Department. Good Luck
