Antique Furniture San Antonio
The contract stated provider would keep 35% or $3500 of sale, whichever was more. In addition, salaries for other employees and expenses were charged to the seller. That should have come out of the 35% instead of all that going into the provider's pocket. Nowhere was it mentioned that in order to make money, the sale would have to bring in ten thousand dollars, not verbally and not in the poorly written contract.
This resulted in the providers selling approximately $4100 of my mother's belongings (that she had to sell to move) and the company keeping every cent of it. You read that right, my mother got NOTHING from this sale. There is something inherently wrong with this type of business. There was no way the proceeds from this sale could have totaled ten thousand dollars and the owner should have recognized that from the get go. The owner then blamed that on the family for taking the items given to us by our mom. Thank the Lord we took what we did; otherwise that would have been in the owners pocket. Had we not accepted anything from our mother, the sale still would not have brought in ten thousand dollars.
Our family feels very cheated by this company. There is something morally wrong with this business. They took advantage of an elderly woman. Shame on you.
