I ordered two phone car chargers back in July from cellular blowout, but when I received them they were not the right ones for my phones. I returned them, at my expense, and had to challenge the charge on my account to get a credit. You can never talk to anyone there and no one returns your call. I'll never recommend them again to anyone. They are a rip off probably working in somebody's garage. I don't believe they have an actual store anywhere.

Amazing this morning I left a hostile post on here about how no one will help me and they took my money when they didn't have the product in stock and I said this COMPANY IS A SCAM, they removed the post. Yeah, I bet they did remove it because they know they are scamming people out of their money and not willing to help the customer in any way. After sending in a ticket and emailing the only person I could get in touch with was the person that emailed me to tell me the product was out of stock.. I have had to go back in forth with this person in attempts to resolve the issue. All I kept getting was you weren't charged, I have sent your information to the refund department, blah blah blah blah blah....I would never do business with this company again as they are unhelpful, they don't respond to tickets you submit, they don't have a support phone number to call, they have products listed that aren't in stock and if your like me once you order it and are charged you are screwed. Round and round in circles you will go with this company. IT'S POOR HOW THEY DO BUSINESS AND THE SUPPORT THEY PROVIDE. I can't believe they even created this blog since seeing as how 90% of all the post on here are NEGATIVE. Im gonna have to agree with everyone on here THIS COMPANY IS A SCAM, WARNING TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PURCHASE FROM THIS SITE. I say if you can find the product somewhere else, even if it's a little more expensive, I say go the more expansive route. NORMAL COMPANIES POST WHEN THINGS ARE OUT OF STOCK THEY DON'T CHARGE YOUR CARD FOR A PRODUCT THEY DON'T HAVE, THEN DENY THE CHARGE WAS MADE!!! frustration!!!! this company needs to be shut down! After about a month they finally issued me my refund!!!! it's amazing what you have to go through in order to get your money back, when you are owed the credit due to their lack of keeping their website up to date!!. Im still not happy even though I received my refund, b/c I feel that they should have never charged me and should have actually helped me to begin with when I wasn't so angry about the situation. I got angry because NO ONE helps there!!

This place sucks. I do not recommend using them. I purchased something off their site and they didn't even have it in stock. They said they didn't charge my card then poof there it was. I have been emailing them for over a month now and they will not refund my money. There is no phone number to call all you can do is submit these stupid tickets. The only way to get in touch with these people is there the one email I received from them saying that they didn't have my product in stock. I have continued emailing them and they refuse to settle this. Im think lawyers need to be brought in here. THEY ARE A FREAKIN SCAM all they want to do is TAKE YOUR MONEY and then not help you at all. I am contacting my lawyer ASAP. I work for an online business and I am amazed at the boor qulaity of support from this company. However, I do know one hell of an online business attorney. Gosh I hate to be them. I am not going away and tell they refund my damn money as they should since they don't have my product in stock and it's been over a month since I ordered it and still NO REFUND..THIS COMPANY IS A SCAM,

The company is not a reputable one. I ordered two phones which took forever to be shipped; then, it turned out to be the wrong product.
The phones I got were not legitmate phones. They were inferior and replicas of a real phone.

Horrible. They took all of our money. We ordered a total of 6 pebbles, 2 F3s and 2 memory cards... after weeks of waiting we received only one not new damaged pebble, 2 F3s that do not take memory cards and only 1 memory card. Repeated efforts to contact netted a single response of 'Armando' haven been out with the flu. His email said thanks and the rest of our order had shipped 'in it's entirety' I refused the single priority mail envelope at the post office as we were cancelling our order anyway and they have yet to provide us with return labels among other things... but also... I find it hard to believe that the missing 5 pebbles and the missing memory card were all in that one 8x10 envelope! They have not responded to us and they are holding about $600 worth of our money. I am going to call the District Attorney's Office here as soon as I get off the phone. I was wondering how the heck they can be doing all of this. This is beyond ridiculous and we were under time constraints with this order. Can't get them by phone, they are not responding to our emails. This is so totally not okay. We have definitely been scammed by them and they are completely bogus sending damaged, not new, mismatched, not working, substandard, short shipped items and then all this grief to get back in touch or get any resolve without incurring more costs and losing so much time. It's disgusting. They are a horrible horrible company with a lousy way of dealing with anyone or orders. Do not order from them unless you want to get stuck with junk or garbage and have to wait weeks to get nothing but a headache! We are going to pursue legal avenues for the return of our monies. They don't mention anyway in the shopping area or during checkout by the way that they make a habit of short shipping, partial shipping, and back order without notice. So much for getting our phones within 3 business days for $x.. it's been weeks and so much hey

Bought a phone which worked for 2 weeks and then nothing. They claim 100% satisfaction guarantee which is totally bogus!! I tried to return the phone so that they could swap it out but they told me the 3 day return policy had passed. Where is the 100% customer satisfaction? I was not trying to get a refund, just an exchange but they offered me nothing but a hassle!!!

Cellular Blowout is a rip off! I ordered 5 phones that were said to be "in stock". I got an email saying that two items were shipped and that the rest were back ordered (with no date as to when these were going to be available). When I got the two phones they sent one was obviously used and broken (the screen was totally crushed). I even shipped those back to them. I have been trying to get in touch with the company through various means to cancel my order and request a refund but have had no luck. I have left voice messages, sent various emails, etc and no response. Their customer service is non-existent. Almost seems like a ghost company. I have had to call the bank to try to get my money back (which I still have not gotten). DON'T EVER BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!!! TOTAL RIP OFF!!!

I had a blackberry 8800 which developed a problems with the USB port after 2yrs of use. Since I was not ready to start a new contract with my cell phone carrier I decided to get an unlocked phone. I went on the internet and did a search for phone and cellular blowout came up. Without checking them out I ordered a phone from them at a cost of $159 with two day shipping and taxes it came up to $178. After 3 days I have not yet received my phone or any tracking number to track the shipping. I emailed and called but all my calls went to automated machines. I am still waiting for my phone.

this goes to show you that everyone should be careful and do a full research on the website they want to order product off of. i too have been frauded by cellular-blowout.com. however i have already filed a complaint with the FBI in the IC3 division. i would recomend all of you to file a complaint to the internet crime with the FBI if we convince everyone to do it than they will not be able to avoid us and we will get justice
Posted by Pissed! (9 years ago)
They totally ripped me off. Their customer service is non-existant. They keep telling me that my phone was on back-order. To make a long story short, I never received my phone. They never refunded my money, so I had to file a fraud claim. Terrible experience, it shocks me that thier website is still in business.
Posted by J. Klump 10-1-09 (9 years ago)
I ordered a product from this company which not only took very long to ship because of being back ordered, but when shipped it turned out to be the wrong product. I have tried numerous times to contact someone at Cellular Blowout both by phone and e-mail and not received a single responce.
Do not do business with this company. Prices were good but if you do not get what you ordered, free is to expensive.

THEY DIRECT YOU TO THE WEB SITE TO REQUEST A RETURN

THEY SENT ME A LOCKED T-MOBILE PHONE WITH A DEAD BATTERY USELSS... ITEM AND THEY WON'T TAKE IT BACK
Posted by Jane of Upton (9 years ago)
I think I've been scammed as well. I've been waiting for SIX MONTHS for the phone I ordered. They were really quick to charge my credit card, but I also keep getting emails saying the item is backordered. I had a family crisis, and this was not the highest priority for several weeks, and now its more than 90 days out, so my Credit Card company cannot dispute the charges. I'm furious.

Placed an order in March of this year. I am still receiving emails from them telling me it is on backorder. After about a month of waiting I finally notified my bank and told them to not allow any sales from this company to go through.
they never answer their phone, they never respond to emails. All I want from them now is to stop filling up my inbox. I hate Cellular-Blowout

I ordered a phone from this company in May of 2008! Guess what, no phone or refund. You will not get any response from these people. This is a total scam. DO NOT do business with these people. There are thousands of complaints on the web about this company.

i ordered a phone in march 09 and this is july 1 and i have not got it yet. they send emails saying it is on back order, then 2 weeks in arow they send a email saying it can now be sent in couple of days, then they send email saying it isn't available would i like a similar phone. but they have the same phone as available on there web site and at a cheaper price. i can't get them to return phone calls, very few answered emails. they are scamming people out of thier money. they took the money out of my account the same day i ordered the phone and that was 5 months ago, and can't get the phone or my money back

I would not purchase another thing from this web site. They have lousy customer service. I've been waiting 7 months for a credit on an item that I cancelled because it was on "back order". They are quick to charge your cedit card but won't refund your money.

total scam. Ordered 2 phones, cancelled same day, ignored cancellation, no ability to get RMA, they ignore emails, they won't accept calls..STAY AWAY
Posted by Pam Lawrence (9 years ago)
I believe this company is fraudulent. Since I placed my order, I have seen hundreds of complaints just like mine. I placed an order in March 2009 and one week later received an email stating that the products had been discontinued (however, my credit card had already been charged!) I requested a refund, and, to date (June 5, 2009) have not received a refund, after numerous emails and phone calls (never returned). I have filed a fraud complaint with my credit card company and with the Federal Trade Commission.
Posted by BKO (9 years ago)
Seems like a scam. Ordered a phone on 4/8. Got the run-around for a month. Asking for my money in check form, contacting my C.C. company; will contact AG, FTC, and (big deal) he BBB.
No one should ever threaten anyone -- children / family members, etc. But I do not think it's off-limits to alert family and associates what dear daddy/hubby/pal David is up to. Which is no good.

cellular blowout is NOT a scam. i bought a cell phone from them about 2 months ago. they had a bit of a backorder, which every company can have, on backordered for about 3 weeks then i received my product. with the price of these phones how can people be mad about waiting for it. ive been on backorder for best buy for over a month for my lap top, n im sure im not the only one, but you dont see people posting about them. i honestly feel bad for small businesses at this time. everyone just goes n bashes them on the internet..... i mean come on i thought we were all adults here, harrassing his inicent daughter on facebook for something he has done wrong, how low can u get. how would u feel if you have done something wrong to someone and they go and harrass your kids. you will get nothing out of harrassing her friends nor from harrassing her except for a hurt liittle girl. if u have a problem take it up with the source not the his family! sounds like a bunch of kids to me. if you want something done call david bleeden or catlyn they both will be able to assist you. and dont forget WE ARE ALL HUMAN.

After many months of bombarding and subtly threatening David Bleeden by email, phone, and Facebook, I finally got a cashiers check for the three phones I ordered and payed for. Be a complete ass to him and his employees. Tell him you're going to visit his company, or even his homes. You can find them by searching his name on White Pages. He seems to have two homes, both in the vicinity of Beverly Hills. His daughter's name is Paean and his wife's Victoria. Could be good to know... Subtly threaten the employees as well. Especially Catlyn Cleaver, who is some kind of CFO. Don't give up!!!

On 4-25-09 we recieved e-mail stating the merchandise is on back order. However. when we looked at their web site, eh same phomes are still llisted as being available. Also requested a refund by e-mail. Still no refund this company is not legit!

Cellular-Blowout.com is horrible. I ordered a LG KE800 Gold Chocolate phone from them in early November, 2008 for my son birthday and it has been 6 months and the Phone hasn't come yet, and my son is about to get a year older. Do not buy from this company. I called, and send emails but no response.
Posted by Sasha Salinas (9 years ago)
I Ordered unlocked cell phone, paid extra for 2 day shipping. Credit card was charged immediately. After a week of "order being filled" online status, telephoned to understand why it had not been shipped. After two days of phone and email, there was no response. Telephone system is circular, no person answers. Disputed charges with credit card company which refunded my account. Today, nearly 30 days after placing the order, I recieved email informing me that the order has been cancelled.
DO NOT patronize Cellular-Blowout.Com. They accept orders and take money for product which they do not inventory. Totally unacceptable experience.

I ordered two phones, the credit card was charged on the day of the order. Several days after the order was suppose to arrive I tried to contact them to cancel my order. I ordered in Dec 2008. Everty 11 days they send me this bogus e-mail saying my order is on back order. I have sent e-mail and left voice mail messages from the very begining to cancel my order.Why are tese crooks not in jail?
Thank you for your business.
The order you had placed, order number:-C123456, is still on backorder and we are working hard to get it shipped out to you.
We have been backlogged due to the overwhelming customer response and are working very hard to get everything back in order.
We value you as a customer and for your inconvenience we are offering you a free car charger.
We apologize for the inconvenience this delay may have caused you and look forward to serving you.
Please review the updated status of your order:
Order Id: C123456
Today is 22 April over 4 months since i cancelled the order.
The e-mail is very annoying as it reminds me they scammed my money.

My credit card was charged by "Badass Wireless" immediately. Although I kept receiving e-mails saying the order was being processed and on back-order, after 9 months (!) no product was ever delivered and no response to my requests for a refund was ever forthcoming. Total fraud.
Posted by Coleen P. (9 years ago)
The issues that I have with Cellular Blowout is I did receive a refund check for my item but my bank sent me a notice that the check from Strathmore Investments DBA Cellular Blowout had NSF. I was charged the amount of the refund and an extra $19 service fee from my bank. I bought my item in Sept and this is still going on.....Do like everyone says and keep calling/emailing David Bleeden....I called the bank that issued the check and the bank said they have funds, so whats up with that????
I have some major issues with Cellular Blowout which I would like resolved but no one there seems to want to help or correct the problem.

My husband ordered two phones, the credit card was charged on the day of the order. Several days after the order was suppose to arrive I contacted them, it is not in stock and we were put on a waiting list. I then canceled the order. I was told the order was canceled and it would take up to 14 days for refund. Refund has not come and we were told by cellular-blowout that they could not refund us because the company that deals with the credit card has not send them money. We are filing a complaint and fighting the payment with the credit card company today. Wish my husband would have found this site before ordering from this frickin company.

I have also been screwed by David Bleeden and Cellular Blowout. I have filed a complaint at the BBB of California. Bleeden/Cellular Blowout owes me more than 600 dollars for a canceled order that never was in stock. I will make it a mission to get the money back. I urge all of you guys to look him (and his daughter Paean) up on Facebook and bombard them. Why not write their Facebook friends and explain to them who their buddy really is...? And call them throughout the nights... He belongs in jail!
