    Yes it is a rip off.

    I got 0 leads from this service which cost me 250$

    And they make it extremely difficult to get a refund. Must wait 90 days. but no longer then 2 weeks after that. And you must use their form AND it must be notarized. Whatever you do, do NOT use longwood industries for selling your car. They will not refund your payment over the phone.

    Yeah, I tried out longwood industries. it was 249$ with money back guarantee after 3 months. It didn't work for me. I didn't get a single call or email about my car, even though they swore up and down that my car was in "high demand".

    i wish I can get my money back sooner. and it remains to be seen as to whether they will return the money.

    I sold my motorcycle through them and it did sell after spending a lot of money in other venues. I plan on using it again.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    Since there is so much scamming going on these days, it is so nice to know that the internet provides such sites as this to mitigate potential fraud.

    I too, received a call from Alan today. He sounded so professional and I almost decided to contact him since he stated he 'may have potential buyers for my car'. In this economy, I am sure buying a car is not on the top of everyone's list but I believe it will just take a little longer to sell than say maybe two or three years ago. I'd rather wait for a legitimate, qualified buyer than fool around with these so-called autobrokers.

    Thanks for the tip!!!!!

    Oh, yeah - it still continues. I am selling my BMW on and have received a call from Jeff with the automated voice. Did not return the call.

    I, too, got a call from Allen. I figured it was a scam because most calls of this type are scams. I went to the internet and typed in Longwood Industries and it wasn't hard to find out it was a scam. Doing a little research will save you time, money and aggravation.

    Eh, it's a 3-year-old thread!

    It shows that:
    1) Yes, it's a ripoff
    2) This board is dead as fried chicken. Amazing given how much interest people still have in these M5's, but I guess everyone that cares is over at m5board dot com.

    Thanks for all the information! We will definitely NOT be advertising with them. My husband spoke with them yesterday, and I guess there has been a price increase. They quoted him $495 to run an ad. Won't be doing THAT anytime soon!

    Waste of Time & Money

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    Allan called me twice to post my ad after seeing it on Craigs List. He told me he had interested buyers looking for a vehicle like mine. I wasn't having too much luck so I took the bait. After 60 days I still had not received a single call after advertising with Longwood Industries. My initial cost was $150.00 but got it all back except for a $29.00 processing fee. If you go with them be sure to follow the directions to the letter or you will not receive your refund. This includes having to get the receipt notarized. A bank official/ date-stamp seems to be enough to satisfy their requirements. You must adhere to the dates specified and post a picture on their site to qualify for the refund. I eventually sold my vehicle through a local paper.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    Alan is always in a meeting, wow some busy guy.

    This outfit is a total rip off, they have no buyers.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    I got a call from "Allan" today regarding my vehicle I have listed on Autotrader. I figured I'd call back and see what their guarantee was all about, and when I declined their offer due to what I believed were empty promises of buyers only wanting to purchase through them, I got an odd reply "...well, that's very unfortunate." When I asked why it's so unfortunate, she stated she would have to tell her clients that my vehicle is not available. Considering I have it listed on Autotrader, it sounds a little frodulent to me they would be going around telling people it's not available. Certainly not anyone I feel I would want to do business with. I really question their 501-C(3) non profit status, as well as their ethics in utilizing mentally and physically challenged persons to drive their business based on fraudulent statements.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    Thank you to all of you who posted. I also got the call from Allen 2 days after posting on Craigslist. I called and of course Allen wasn't in but a nice lady told me about the deal. I thought it sounded too good to be true, which my son agreed, but I thought I'd check the web. Thanks to all of you, and I hope you get your money back.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    I too received a message this morning from Allen. The message stated that Longwood Industired is a 501C3 company (not for profit - tax exempt). I smell SCAM all over this. Glad I found this site before I returned his call.

    Re: Anybody heard of Longwood Industries?

    Allen called us too. Luckily, my wife asked me to check them out. What really stinks is that Longwood Industries is using the developmentally challenged people to promote their scams. I hope someone follows up with the legal side of this to put Longwood out of business.

    Re: People upset with here!

    I only received phishing scams from Africa when I used the Longwood services. When my car didn't sell within, 60 days, I followed (closely) the instructions for a refund. That was in April. It's July and I have not been refunded my $150 nor have I receive any correspondence to that end. When I call to express my displeasure, I'm shuffled off to interminable HOLD. Surly the large numbers of people who are given false information would motivate some sort of legal action. I'd be happy to provide my information toward that cause.
