Dishonest
Just received word that a hard cover book I sent in was torn, so they are not going to purchase it from me. In deleting this one book from the five that I sent in, I am now exactly 17 cents under the minimum $15.00 payment policy, so I get nothing. I have requested actual photos of the book, because in order to tear the cover of a hard cover book, that would take a tremendous amount of postal damage to do so. I sent books out to another company on the same day I did to this one -- no problems. Reason I split who I sold to was because the other was not buying back two books that I wanted to sell. Guess I should have just donated them all to Goodwill/Salvation Army/College/High School. At least I would have gotten a tax write off, instead of a rip off and blow off from this organization. Be warned!!

Do Not Send This Company Your Books
This was our first and last experience with this company. Sent in my daughters book she bought for a class and ended up not needing. Followed every packing rule, don't use this only use this packing material and so on. Just received a reply that the book was water damaged??? That's funny wasn't water damaged when we mailed it. Needless to say I'm sure we'll never see the book or any refund. Should have really checked ratings before jumping the gun. Learned a hard lesson.
