I sent my copies of the 'lost' forms and other records several weeks ago. No
word yet. Exactly as they requested.

I'd be willing to bet that I will never get a dime from Soyo.
I encourage all vendors like New Egg and others to DROP ALL SOYO products
immediately. There is no reason why a vendor should have their good reputation
dragged into the mud because of the shoddy business practices of ONE supplier.
There are many more suppliers to choose from. I have informed NewEgg that I will
not be purchasing anything from them again until they drop the Soyo product
line. Considering that I spend less than $2k a year with NewEgg I'm obviously a
small fry in the big picture but if MORE people would start boycotting these
vendors then maybe we can have some impact.

Write your vendors. Let them know you don't appreciate them handling suppliers
that participate in consumer rip-offs.

Get those letters and emails flowing! Forget Soyo_ they could care less. HIT the
vendors!

Something you may wish to consider, it that the manufacturers seldom, if
ever handle thier own rebate requests. Hence, the rebate is through
www.verifyrebate.com. Many manufacturers use a single company to do this,
it is the same way I get my rebates through the Future Shop (if it has
wires, or goes into something that has wires, you look here first). Future
Shop rebates are handled through a rebate center. Hence, your complaints
would be more effectively directed to Soyo (and other manufacturers)
directly. www.verifyrebate.com gets paid for processing those rebates.
Since I am not familiar with verifyrebate, I can't say in all certianty,
however, if one thinks about it, Soyo produces Mobos, etc... Maxtor makes
hard drives, etc.. It makes better sence to have someone else handle rebates
than to run the expence of a dedicated accounting system. Want results?
Contact Soyo.

Duh_ Yes everyone knows that manufacturers don't handle their rebates directly.
The hire some sleaze outfit to do the dirty work. The fact is that the
manufacturer expects to pay out only a fraction of the total rebate potential.
The third party rebate company expects the actual return rate to be even smaller
than what the manufacturer is willing to paid for and there is where the profit
is. Someone clearly underestimated the response percentage in this particular
market. Obviously once it became clear that the rebate return percentage was
going to wipe out any potential profit some thieving sleaze-ball decided that
dumping all the rebates was the best solution.

A criminal act in my opinion.

Did Soyo actually participate in the ripoff? We will never know_ I suspect not
but I still hold them accountable for the mess.

The only power I have as a consumer is the power to close my wallet. The place
to announce that is directly with the business that the consumer deals with. Let
the vendor put pressure on the manufacturers to clean up this continuous rebate
fraud. This is not the first time I have been ripped off by some bogus rebate
scam. It happens all the time.


Dear Newegg,

Because of your continued support for Soyo products I will no longer be shopping
at Newegg. Soyo has participated in a monumental consumer rip-off. Newegg has
elected to stand behind Soyo by continuing to sell their products AND offer
additional bogus Soyo rebate deals. When and if you decide to support your
customers instead of Soyo I will be happy to shop with you again.

In addition_ I refuse to shop with any supplier who willingly participates in
the criminal rebate scam business. Increasingly the rebate business is being
conducted by thieves and criminals. As a consumer I encourage you to STOP any
and all rebate offerings.

Until then_ consider this a consumer boycott.

Well I did see that I was approved on the rebate handler's webpage, but I
had to keep calling Soyo directly to get my rebate $$$ until I finally got
my rebates.

I agree with you that no one else should deal with fraudulent companies like
Soyo.
I also agree with you that all of the people who experienced problems with
Soyo should notify the places where they bought the products.
Might even get some discount coupons from the stores!!! <g> Well it is a
possibility! lol
Maybe these places will stop selling Soyo's products, or force Soyo to offer
INSTANT rebates!! I bought mine from Microcenter.
A bad reputation is very hard to turn around!!!

I hope I don't have any trouble with the actual Soyo components that I
bought. I would consider them a disposable item and probably not even try
to get them replaced under warranty. :-(
Too much of a hassle probably.

JMHO

I got my rebates within a month of sending my photocopies to Luis. Newegg's
customer service was awesome with helping me resolve this after 5 months of
waiting.

I think it's a positive move that CompUSA was penalized for rebate issues.
It makes the resellers think twice before getting involved promoting rebates
with shady manufacturers like Soyo.

Newegg as been busting their stones to try to resolve the rebate problem for
their customers. Bravo to Newegg! I received my $70 this week as I'm sure many
other Newegg customers did. I'm steering clear of Soyo for a while as this
rebate thing was really a pain in the ass but I'm glad to see that SOME of the
retailers are getting their act together and putting some pressure on these
bogus offers.

Agreed, Newegg has been an outstanding merchant. I have no personal or
business connection to them, aside from being a customer, but I would
encourage anyone to look for their purchases at Newegg first. Their
customer service is top-notch.

Well I got my rebate but it didn't come from Soyo or Verifyrebate.com. I
sent an email to Newegg and asked them for help. Newegg issued a credit to
my credit card for the $10 Soyo rebate that was due. I didn't feel like
they should have done this but I'm glad to know that they were willing to
take responsibility for a rebate they advertised. I just hate to see them
let those Soyo crooks of the hook.

I got that same reply about Luis. They say that they have mailed my
check... We'll see.

Now they claim that my second rebate must have gotten lost in the
mail. (yeah right).

Problem is, I don't have a photocopy of my UPC and can't make another,
since I sent the original to them.

This seems to be another dirtbag scam so they can get away with only
sending 1 out of 2 rebates.

If anyone has a scan of the UPC code for the
SY-P4RC350, please send me a private message. I'd
like to arrange to get a copy of it so I can re-send my second rebate
by certified mail.

I got the same responses. It IS SOYO the is the cause. I have never had a problem with verifyrebate with any other company.
I have bypassed verify rebate all together and have been in contact with SOYO by phone and have faxed them my rebate information 4 times. They have been rude, and they have lied to me.

I will NEVER buy anything from that screwed up company again!
I HATE SOYO!!
