I'm a little confused. I found the following response to a previously posted question.
Hello,eConsignors Storehouse is a legitimate company. I never used it personally, but I know people that did and some of them are my clients. It's one of the best fraud-free services I've seen and whoever came up with the idea did a good job. However, there are a lot of legitimate services such as this one that are also being used by scammers, but you are obviously on the right track if you were pointed to econsignors-storehouse.com. You can also read their security page for tips on how to stay safe. Hope this helps."
Hi Russ,That is a fraudulent listing. As you can see from the URL, it's not from JustAnswer. It's a copycat website that is using my photo to falsely vouch for a fraudulent business. Our legal department has taken this down 3 times already, and the people who post it make a variation in the name of the URL and change the name of the business and try it again.I did not write anything positive about this particular business. I have shown you that eConsignors is only 5 days old. So I couldn't have known a thing about it 23 days ago as what you found said.Thank you very, very much for letting me know that the scammers have done it again. They are located out of the country, most likely in Russia, and they are persistent. But they are lying. We are not allowed on JustAnswer to endorse any company, and I can assure you that I did not.I'll be reporting it to the site's legal division again to their attention.
