TrainSource Scam

..........TrainSource©.......

TrainXchange (now - TrainSource)- They Steal Your Trains


FORMERLY
TrainXchange
 

THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR NAME AGAIN
(For The 4th Time)
 FROM TRAINXCHANGE
TO:
TrainSource
They are using the blue header depicted
at the top of this page with the Santa Fe engine
and blinking signals

THESE ARE THE SAME CROOKS -- DIFFERENT NAME:
PASS THE MESSAGE AND URL ALONG ON THE BOARDS!
http://www.trainxchange.com/

THERE ARE LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF SCAMS ON THE INTERNET TODAY
BUT, THIS ONE STEALS FROM KIDS AND HONEST COLLECTORS

This outfit operates out of a Houston, Texas mail drop.

They solicite consignments and agree to appraise train sets,
offering to sell them and send you the money.  Once they get your
antiques -- you don't hear from them OR get your trains back!!

They have a very professional looking site, but are unprofessional in their
dealings with the general public, i.e. - they steal from you!

How Do We Know?  My young daughter lost over $1,500 worth Lionel
trains, ZW- transformer, coal loader and switchman which she hoped to sell
so that she could buy newer ones that she could operate on a regular basis!

THE BOTTOM OF THEIR PAGE LISTS FOLLOWING DISCLAIMER
THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT AND YOU HAVE NO RECOURSE!

"IMPORTANT NOTE"

"Transactions are strictly between the TrainSource [a Texas business] its consignor[s] and customer[s].  
Transactions are neither sanctioned by nor subject to the rules, bylaws, regulations, standards, guidelines, practices or  jurisdiction of any railroad club, collector, operator, railfan or other organization, notwithstanding the affiliation of one or more company owner (s), employee[s], contract personnel, consultants, and/or agent[s] with one or more such organizations."   

"All sales are final...."

AND THE TRAIN EXCHANGE PEOPLE HAVE
A DOZEN EXCUSES AS TO WHY THEY CAN'T ANSWER THEIR
PHONE OR RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES---
ALL TYPICAL OF CON ARTISTS AND CROOKS!

SO--BEWARE OF THESE CROOKS
THEY CHANGE THEIR NAMES AS FOLKS CATCH ON! 

Vintage Lionel TrainXchange
changed to
Lionel TrainXchange
changed to
TrainXchange
and are now doing business as:
TrainSource©

Formal Complaints HAVE been filed with the Texas Attorney General
HOWEVER
THE TEXAS A.G. DOES NOT CONSIDER THIS CRIME
BEING WORTHY OF PROSECUTION
"THE DOLLAR AMOUNT IS TOO LOW"

THIS, DESPITE HAVING DOCUMENTED
OVER $30,000 IN STOLEN TRAINS FROM
FOLKS IN 15 DIFFERENT STATES!

SO MUCH FOR TEXAS JUSTICE!


Important 2014 Update:

THIS OUTFIT AND THE OWNER, BILL WHITE, ARE NOW SELLING THEIR STOLEN PROPERTY ON eBAY & Craigslist.
