Thumbs down ICONZ = THIEVES!!

Will try to make this a story short but gotta tell it. Ken and ICONZ wheels stole wheels and money from me.

I purchased a set of Iconz wheels 2 yeatrs ago and sent 2 of the wheels back to Iconz for repairs this June. After talking to Ken via e-mail we decided that they would refinish brushed centers on both wheels and replace one of the chrome lips for $875. When I agreed to this price and sent Iconz the wheels I was told that there was a 2 - 3 week lead time on repair and return, and they did all repairs in house, which I found out later was BS!

Well a month went bye before I started emailing Ken about the wheels and it was one excuse after another, "1 of the wheels was done insuffeciently so they had to send it back for repair" and "well thay are backed up" who is "they" thought these were in house repairs??? a month later, "Yeah still waiting on the one wheel" blah blah blah....

August rolls around and still no wheels and then they stop responding to my e-mails and it wasn't until I started sending angry e-mails that I would get a reply from some douch bag named Dave or something saying :oh yeah their ready now and should ship soon" WTF is soon! I told them send my wheels back repaired or not since you have them and I will take the loss and move on......still nothing. Asked them to call me directly and they never did. They have no phone number to reach them by the way. Very conveinent for them, what type of busniness has no contact number??

Months later after several pissed off emails I finally get a response in October saying "oh I've been sending you emails but you have not replied and I need a shipping address for FedEx and a bunch of crap which is total BS. the guy even had the nerve to tell me that the hold-up was becasue I did not provide shipping address when in the e-mail he sent me this dumb a$$ excuse actually had the mailing address in a previous email I sent him 2 emails down from his repsonse. At this point I realized they are stealing from me and I tell him as much which I guess pissed him off and he immediately sent a response saying "we would never steal anything from anyone how dare I say this blah blah blah" So I say "Oh so you do get my e-mails and proves you have been full of sh!t the whole time like I thought"!

Last e-mail I got from them was in December and stated "wheels ready to ship and will send tracking info.......it's February and still no wheels. Went to my CC company finally and explained the whole ordeal and they just credited back my account for the $875 I spent for repairs.....but I'm still out the 2 wheels of course making the set useless!

With that said let it be known and I hope one of these Iconz a$$ holes reads this thread so they know that if they ever run into me or any of my associates in the Miami area there will be some serious furniture moving going on if you know what I mean! I like to think of myself as a cool calm kinda guy but in reality I'm from "off the corner" as they say and won't tolerate anyone taking anything from me and if I ever run into one of these guys I will get my money worth from them in flesh! And that's not a threat....it's a f'ing promise!

WARNING!!!! DO NOT do any business with ICONZ Wheels if that are actually still in business, you will be sorry. And so will these Iconz guys if me or my folks get a hold of em.

It's ridiculous what some people feel they can do to others! You should get all your money back!

Karma is a bastard and I believe everything that goes around comes around in some way shape or form. But unfortunately I will never see those 2 wheels again or get money back for them. I should have known better and gone with a reputable vendor of the forum like Noneball or something....won't make that mistake again.

It seems to only go to a fax machine....can take in orders and CC information that's for sure, but talking to you on the phone....they don't believe in that.

Make a police report. Its theft if they don't give you back the wheels.

Yeah at this point I'm gonna wait and see what the CC investigation turns up and then follow up with authorities. Once all evidence is in and situation resolved either way then I will go to the boards with facts and lay it out there for everyone to see. I suspect I'm not the first victim of this and since I never see anyone posting pics of new wheels from Iconz, so it's probably more of a case of I should have known better.

In my heart I knew it was a gamble to send them the rims for repair but went ahead with it anway. So in the end I have to take some responsibility also.....but that's not going to stop me from gettin in dat a$$ one way or another if and when I ever catch up to these guys.

People shouldn't steal and lie for their own gains. Simple principle in life but means everything. And it's more about that than the money.

A lot of emails being sent. How about phone calls? A lawyer would have perfect for this type of situation especially if you have documented evidence which you do. In today's day in age emails are the easiest technology driven solution but you still have to pick up a phone.

Hope everything with your situation works out! BBB claim and a police report would be something to consider.

OP, I'm not sure where Iconz Wheels is located out of, but I have a # listed for them assuming this is the right company. I did some investigation and found out that they used to be a vendor here on the forum early on but there account was suspended/banned due to shady business practices. Hope this helps. Below is some contact info which you already may be aware of or not. They have businesses out in CA and FL and are apparently working out of there Boca Raton, FL home. I do not know how old this contact info is though. Apparently both iconzwheels.com and themodcity.com are one of the same.

Thanks for the infomation and taking the time to look this up. I did try to contact them before using one of the same numbers you listed and it was just a fax machine on the other end. But they have my number and I even asked them to call me in emails but they never did. You are correct they were a vendor here at one point but soon chased away because of there business practices I believe.

Will see how this plays out with the CC company investigation before I go forward with other types of actions and try to get cost of my wheels back from these guys. Also have an associate in the Boca area that is looking into some things for me down there.

I will do the BBB report and report this situation to authorities in proper jurisdiction when I reach the point where I have all information in hand and have all facts to back up my claims.

Thanks

I put in a BBB claim on these guys. Lets see what happens with that. Still haven't heard from these guys.....would have thought a thread like this would have caught there attention and would defend themselves and explain there side of this issue.....but they have no excuse or reasonable explanation which is probably why they have said nothing on this thread! And no other customers have come to their defense either which is further proof to me that what I have stated is absolutely true!

Is it these guys? http://www.iconzwheels.com/home.html If so their number is there.

I would be suspicious from the start...a company call "I CONZ" = Con artist?

Nothing to update on this really, I see my complaint on the BBB website but don't understand why they show it as closed? Don't think I will spend money on a lawyer to chase money. Looking to see if I can maybe go small claims route but have been told this is very hard to do when making out of state purchases.

At this point I have pretty much concluded that I will not get any financial satisfaction from these guys and my contacts in the area in Fl. they listed as home base have had no luck in locating these guys. From what I understand now these guys were basically working out of a home garage set-up and hard to trace to specific address.

I believe any satisfaction I will get in this situation at this point will be strictly personal and not financial. ....and I got a bit f'ing foot with timberland boots on.
