Unfortunately I didn't check this site before dealing with Jeffery Asherbranner.
I am not his client but supplier. He purchased some computer parts from me and asked to use his UPS account for shipping, what I did.
When I ship him first three chassis with three slot BluRay drives ($145.00 a piece, $435.00 total) he called me and claimed that BluRay drive are missing. This is impossible because I packed everything myself and boxes – according to Jeff – were not opened. When I told him that this is impossible he said: "I am not a thief, OK I am not a thief."
It was the first red light, no one ever said anything like that before.
Because I didn't put boxes into his hands, but shipped by UPS, I decided to ship him three ODDs and swallow loss of $435.00.
He purchased four more chassis from us and made another claim that all power switches were defective. I sent him replacement by he NEVER returned "defective"ones.
Over one month ago UPS charged me $703.65 because Jeff refused to pay UPS charges.
It really made me angry. On July 23 I sent him an e-mail:
Could you please explain why did you refuse to pay UPS charges for shipping ordered items from PHT? All orders have been shipped on your UPS account by your request.
I have not refused to pay shipping. You are mistaken. What are you talking about?
So I sent him a copy of the invoice with information:
Here are six pages of my invoice. As you can see UPS charged me over $700 because:
"Bill To Account Refused To Pay" So as you see I am, not mistaken.
I already paid UPS bill so please send $703.65 by PayPal as "personal" and "payment owed".
Nothing happened so I send another one on 7/26, 2012:
Did you receive e-mail from me yesterday? I received no money from you. Please pay me back shipping charges ASAP.
I receive the email late Yesterday and sent the check out this morning. Sorry for the confusion on shipping.
I never receive a check, so I called him on8/7/2012 and he said that he didn't send a check on 7/26, but on 8/2 (!!!)
On 8/9 I emailed him again because he doesn't answer phone calls since than:
It is exactly 14 days when you sent this e-mail and I receive no check.
Please stop playing games with me and pay money you owe me by PayPal today.
I sent him three money requests by PayPal – no answer at all.
He doesn't answer my phone calls neither my e-mails. (So at least no more lies from him)
So conclusion is simple. If you deal with Jeff Asherbranner and his company – you will loose money sooner or later. He will cheat you if he has can. I lost $1,140.00 dealing with him. I know that he lied about ODDS because he lied many times later.
