I don't understand what the problem is and why you guys are being so rude. Literally he has their return policy for his store and if you even read the thread I posted you'd see people who contacted sears either got a refund if they were not satisfied or were perfectly happy with what they got because they took a risk. Don't use a cc if you're not comfortable, not a big deal. If you don't like buying stuff from stores that don't have 5 stars and a ton of ratings, don't. Not saying the guy couldn't be doing something shifty but if I get my whey idc.
What you don't see my online shopping newbie friend...is you don't go into a transaction having a high probability of having to ask for a refund. Common sense needs to play a part in your decisions.
Also this is Sears we are talking about. They have enough problems getting their own frequent mess up's right....much less do I trust them to babysit/correct some scammers.
I ordered a 10lb bag. If I don't get it, my CC will cover the cost. That's a pretty big savings. Anywhere else I've looked it's $100. If this guy comes through, I am going to order more before the price goes up.

Hopefully they'll cancel your card after that.
There is a big difference between getting scammed and purposely walking into one.
Very hard to see how he could sell it for that low and turn any type of profit.
People usually do that "whole selling thing" ...for that trivial reason.
I bought some items from a Sears marketplace seller several months ago and yes the deal was to go to be true. I contacted Sears about the problem and yes the deal did go south but... I received my money back and Sears issued a $20 gift card and I guess if the same goes on here, well just use the gift card to buy some from a legitimate dealer and get it for about the same money.
I'm not saying this is good or not but last year I bought a 10 pound bag of ON 100% gold standard Whey from a sears marketplace seller and it arrived in a bodybuilding.com container with their literature and a free sample on cellucor c4.
I ordered off this guy about a week back. Then cancelled after finding out that it is not from Sears and the phone number listed on his seller profile is disconnected.
Have not gotten my money back yet, but my credit card is showing a pending transaction from Sears. I'm hoping sears refunds me soon.
I'm sure the seller is using stolen CC info. What he/she does is sell a product he/she knows will sell...like 10lb ON Gold Standard for $75.00 shipped.
Once you place your order (I'm sure the seller "Robert Crews" never sees your CC info), the seller uses one of the stolen CC numbers to place an order at bodybuilding.com. Usually, the order is placed with overnight or 2-day shipping. As the buyer, you get the product you ordered from bodybuilding.com, but the billing name on the receipt is the name of the person who has had their CC info stolen.
This type of scam happens everyday on market places like Amazon, Sears, etc. There are several threads about this.
The question is - are you comfortable getting a good deal if you know you are supporting credit card scams? It's a matter of ethics.
