I ordered baseboards and thermostats for a small cabin in fall, 2012.When I didn't initially complete the order on-line, Hydro-sil started sending me emails asking me to complete it, offering discount or free-shipping coupons.
So, I did the order, paid--and then, NOTHING. Called them, emailed, etc. Got BS emails telling me they'd ship by the end of the week, blah, blah. Then suddenly their phones were disconnected and the BBB listed them as out of business.
THEN I found out they'd been scamming others for over a year. So, they already had stopped shipping products by the time they were emailing me to get my money.
This isn't just an honest company that suffered tough times and folded. No, they continued actively soliciting customer's money AFTER stopping shipment of products.
That's fraud--and if they try to declare bankruptcy to walk away from their obligations, THEY LEGALLY CANNOT (fraud rules out eligibility for bankruptcy). If you've been ripped off by Hydro-sil, make sure to complain to the Attorneys general in both SC and NC (the company had offices in both states, and the owners have houses in both).
They should be prosecuted.DON'T LET THESE SCUMBAGS GET AWAY WITH THIS!
