    Hey everyone,

    Posting this as a warning to those in the GTA. I have heard numerous complaints about the company. Did not want to post one of these, but hate to hear about people getting stuck in the same issue that me and others have been in.

    Nothing worse than giving your money to someone, expecting a product and given excuses until you legally threaten the person to give you your money back.

    Thanks for the heads up. Much appreciated. Problem up here is someone gets rights to distribute a product. The product may be quality but their business is more than shady. I once traced a so called "distributor" to a residential address at the same time the cops were shakin' it down over "proceeds of crime". (Found out later) Now, I'm not saying this about every reseller, but once the ignored requests, missed delivery dates & empty promises start, I go into "walk like a duck" mode. So to all you Quality products suppliers out there, please give us some better choices of distributors. I hope you get satisfactory resolve soon.

    My issue was resolved. Involved threat of court, a year of wasted tome, trips being held up. Just a pain in the ass.

    @tacoma16 How long was it before you got your money back? I'm asking because I figure he will dog that too.

    a week or so after waiting a year for the product. He went ghost when I asked for my money back which kinda bugged me. Seems like he takes from one to pay off another or something. Always ecscuses and a sob story. Was tired of it.

    Tired of hearing people getting into the same predicament.

    I asked for refund today and apparently I have to wait for that too. Lol. He said Monday so we'll see. I'm tired of asking when he should be the one communicating. I'm pissed.

    There was a few of us on here that got screwed. I took him off the Ontario page as a vendor to go to. Sorry I didn’t do this sooner and you got fucked over. Hopefully this saves people.

    I would like anyone who ever had similar problems with Core to post their stories on here. Great ammo to take to small claims and shut him down. He's scamming people and it can't continue.

    That’s what I’m trying to aim for. Atleast now we are the fourth search result for core Toyota on google.

    Well he actually has the product....probably ordered it for someone and they asked for a refund. I don’t trust the guy after my dealings. All I can say is only give the money if you get your product.

    If you go see him personally and pay for the product and make sure it's in your hands before you leave, then that's ok.
    Ordering online be careful.
