Report Filed: Steve Cowin, SecureTrade, Direct Auto Shippers, Jonson Gray ripoff, Secure-Trade, Steve Cowin, Acted like they had a truck for sale on ebay, then after send in the $10,000 dollars, I haven’t heard from them since Thessaloniki Greece!!
I started out looking on ebay for a truck, and I found this 2004 Chevy Avalanche for sale, but you couldn’t bid, you had to email the ebayer. The auction stated it was a 1 day auction only. So I emailed the ebayer, and he sent me all of the information, I sent him my name. Then Secure-Trade an online banking or broker sent me all the information on both of us. Me , and the seller, Steve Cowin. I took the papers to the bank, took out a loan for $10,500 dollars because the truck was $10,000 and it cost $430.00 to wire the funds. He explained to me that I would send the funds to him and then if I didn’t like the truck, then I would ship back the truck, and recieve my funds back in full payment in three business days. He said it would be shipped through Direct Auto Shippers and they even sent me a tracking number. The shipment showed being shipped off November 4th, 2005 at 7:21am from Greece. I have checked it and it never moved or updated the status. I have then emailed both Secure Trade, Steve Cowin and Direct Auto Shippers and I am getting nothing. I am out $10,430.00, I have a loan through my bank, and I am sick to my stomach over the situation, and I would love someone to death if they could help me. I have all of the information as far as emailing back in forth. I have every piece of information. The one thing that gets me, is when I sent the money, Secure Trade and Steve Cowin both said, “When you wire the money
