Cashforiphones.com Bait and Switch Scheme

In June 2016, a false advertising class-action lawsuit against Cashforiphones.com (a company that buys used iPhones, smartphones, laptop computers, and tablets) was transferred from a court in California to one in Nevada. The complaint, which was originally filed in March 2015, alleges that the company runs a bait and switch scam where the company generates an “initial quote,” customers send the used item to the company, and the company revises its offer to one that is generally ten times less than the first offer. Plaintiffs also claim that the company does not adequately disclose that revised offers not rejected within three days (which the company makes overly difficult to do) are deemed accepted and the company keeps the item. (Washington et al v. Cashforiphones.com (fka Cashforlaptops.com), Case No. 16-cv-300, D. NV.)
