ProgRama "Cash For Cores" Stay Away

*Resolved, see last post*

I recently decided to liquidate most of my cluster parts, which included about 7 good SI boards.

I decided that I’d just send ProgRama the cores, taking advantage of their ‘Cash for Cores’ offer.

I sent in seven SI boards and a circuit board at a rate of $75 per SI board and $25 for the circuit board.


After two weeks of having my boards in house, I decided to email and get an update. I was told that they were still working on them even though they state that a transaction should happen within the two weeks.

After some back and fourth which included ignoring my requests for explanation on how they quantify deductions for missing batteries, I was told that I would only get $145 back for five cores that were deemed good.

I asked why the value changed so drastically from what I was quoted, they said they changed their prices. I asked why they wouldn’t honor the quoted price when they wrote up the purchase order, the rep simply told me that hey would give me a better price if I sent them more cores. I refused.

So, seeing as they completely went back on their website pricing for cores when I initiated the purchase, before they changed their prices, I would say to stay away from ProgRama as far as the ‘cash for cores’ side is concerned.

I’ve filed a complaint with the BBB in Florida as a result of them not honoring their quoted price and for their deceptive pricing practices. While ProgRama did say that my payment was "in the mail" it is MIA since I filed the complaint.

It's funny cause, all the people that have previously scammed me (or attempted to) were from Florida (aspeedracer345 from eBay, and others), or New York. They claimed the item was received broken, switched internal parts, or claimed they didn't receive the package altogether. Not saying everyone from these states is a scammer, but a damning coincidence.

I think you may be onto something.
West coast ppl. seem to believe in the whole "karma" hippie thing.
And midwest folk seem interested in long-term business dealings (Blunttech etc).

Whereas East coast folk just don't GAF about anything long term.

The owner of ProgRama ended up reaching out to me and personally resolved the issue. While Iím not a huge fan of his employees, he went above and beyond in resolving the whole transaction.

Isn't that funny.
Only once you post this thread on a reputable e30 site do they finally decided to make things right.
