Complaint / review text:
I want to first thank Sue in Kansas, for if it were not for her report, my husband and I would still be scratching our heads wondering if the transaction with Marvin Ziegler and "On Site Fleets" was legit. Thank you, Sue. Your report has helped us so much!
My husband found Marvin Ziegler's name and company on the internet and sold us a Dodge Intrepid rebuilt engine. Of course, until we had decided to purchase the engine, Marvin Ziegler was calling us every other hour to push us to buy the engine. Mr. Ziegler asked for a certified check made out to his name (made me suspicious from day one). We purchased the certified check and overnighted it to Marvin in Lafayette, LA.
After a few days and having heard nothing from Marvin, my husband called only to reach a voicemail. We have now been calling and leaving messages for almost a week and have heard nothing from him. We should have had the engine by now. However, the lack of communication is what made us wonder what was going on.
Finally, today, I did a more indepth search online and found Sue's entry on Marvin Ziegler. From there, I tried to contact my bank to stop payment on the check, but it was too late, the check had already been cashed by Marvin. So far today, we have made police reports with our local police here in Cincinnati as well as the local police in Lafayette. They have informed us that according to the BBB, Mr. Ziegler has an "unsatisfactory" history and has a criminal history as well. We are prepared to do whatever we have to do to get our money back. I will update this site as the situation plays out. Thanks again, Sue!
