Complaint: I ordered a large hardcover book from Ergodebooks through abebooks. The book cost $121. I contacted them three times and asked them to mail it in a box. I was willing to pay extra just to have it mailed in a box. They, however, sent to me in a think bubble envelope. The book arrived very damaged. But Ergodebooks could not care less — and abebooks does not allow customer to review these scam artists. Later on, I found out that Ergodebooks is not a legitimate bookseller, but a bookjacker, i.e., they do not own any of their own stock, but simply hijack other legitimate booksellers’ listings from other websites and then post the listings with inflated prices. Even the Better Business Bureau has an entry devoted to them (this Texas company has a dozen names: Fast Media, AmiVentures, Extremely Reliable…) as notorious scam artists.
