    It's not working Dan. I searched on Bing, yahoo, google and ask and there is nothing negative that comes up besides a "B" rating on the BBB website. This thread doesn't come up in the 3 pages of results I looked through. I'm not a big believer in BBB but maybe the people who have had bad dealings should file a complaint there - maybe it would change their rating.

    My very limited understanding of US law is just that ..limited....but here....that's without a doubt jail time.... "Fraud by false representation" carries anything up to 10 years here with category 2 offences (anything over 100,000 total) having a starting point of 5 years jail plus unlimited fines.

    cheers

    I filed a BBB complaint against them and usedlasers responded as soon as they got it. I gave them yet another shot and was promised a check for $25 a week til paid off. Not only is that just a sad amount on their part but the payments are irregular at best. They have no problem posting their tropical vacation photos on facebook but paying off their costumers is not on their priority list.

    I c/p this thread link to their facebook page timeline. It only shows up on the sidebar so I commented on an article with it as well. People shouldn't give them one dime until they quit ripping people off!

    Thanks very much for this thread. I have been in contact with access used lasers about a UVL 120 watt. They do not even have the machine, they advertise that it has been fully refurbished. When I asked for specific work that was done and if the laser tubes were refilled, she told me that they do not have it in stock.
    They are selling on consignment and will get the machine and do the refurb when they get payment.

    Thanks for helping me dodge the bullet on this. Anyone know of a good place to find used lasers ??

    The safest place I know of these days is the Classifieds Forum here at The Creek.

    this is America - where you can sue anyone for anything. Why hasn't anyone taken these (removed inappropriate language) to the cleaners thru the court system yet?

    It's not easy, particularly when you're across state lines. Not to mention, even if you win, getting the actual money back is complicated and often impossible.

    Most authorized laser distributors have used lasers available or know of FSBO lasers. I don't know if all manufacturers post used lasers on their websites but I know Epilog does. I'd highly recommend checking with your local distributors in Arizona.

    I'm guessing, by way of nothing new posted to this thread, that these issues are still outstanding? I am getting a lot of emails (relatively) from Diane in the last month after nothing for maybe 6 months. Unsubscribed!

    Crazy.

    So I find this on eBay, just needs a tube and it looks like the same machine these people are selling? Are they one in the same? eBay listing Item # 281610999393

    ACCESS Business Solutions
    523 Knollwood Dr.
    Hudson, WI 54016

    So an email from them or Diane at Diane C. Bosworth @
    Access Business Solutions, Inc and it contains pictures exactly matching the ones posted on the eBay listing above only Access price is $12k and eBay seller is doing a BIN for $6K as a not working machine, just needs a tube and must be moved out of his basement. Cash before moving and I assume inspection.

I trusted Robert now it looks like I will have to sue them,access@usedlasers.com or via phone at 715-386-8021. Be careful out there folks, I will keep you posted. Joe Flores
    Well this nightmare has finally ended. My attorney was able to collect the money. It took almost two years for an attorney. I know other people have send me private messages. To them I will say
    it is hard to collect from someone out of state. I am in Texas they are in Wisconsin. This is the only piece of equipment I sold this way. I would not recommend this method to anyone. They lasers they list
    are often owned by someone else. In the end find an attorney to collect your money.

    PS: too all of you who defended Rob & Diane Bosworth shame on you.

    Good for you, Joe... I'm assuming you actually got money, not just a judgement in your favor, correct? If so, how much did the lawyer get (or were you awarded costs, as well)?

    As a further update to this thread...

    Recently I was going through my stack of unread magazines (my backlog is often a few months) and found an article on used laser purchases in A&E (December 2014). Access Business Solutions (and Rob and Diane Bosworth, specifially) was mentioned multiple times, including the website, with quotes from Rob. Needless to say, I had to write the author (CC'd the editor of A&E) and let him know of the manner in which ABS has been fleecing their customers. The author has promised to investigate from his end, but I can not say what, if anything, will come of it. As I've said before, the best we can do is warn as many folk as possible so they are not scammed in the same manner. And yes, since this pattern of behavior has been repeated time and again over 8+ years, this is definitely a scam.
