Is Fryerpower A Legitimate Business?

I placed an order with Fryerpower.com a month ago and after 2 weeks had not received my order. So, I have emailed the company and have received no response. What is with businesses these days?

I did a search and found the owner of Fryerpower.com posted this on PeachParts a few months ago:

"Hey everyone,
My house burnt out on the 13th of March. I'm eyes deep in dealing with that right now. I have three orders that need to go out. The good news is that no one was home and all of the viton stuff was in my truck.

As of today I have computer access, a printer, shipping envelops, and product. Look for something going out very soon, maybe even tonight.

David, thanks for the heads up and the link to this thread!

Jim"

Then he had a car crash shortly after that. So, it looks like he has been having a lot to deal with lately. So, at least now I know a bit of what is going on.

the BBB is an extortion racket. yelp has followed their lead. they both use pay-to-eliminate bad reviews.

All I wanted was the OM603 Viton O-ring kit, but I may have to look elsewhere as I needed them the day before I ordered them and can't wait any longer to get my roommate's car back together.

Absolutely fair assessment! Sometimes I ship the next day. Sometimes it takes WEEKS.

Even with every o-ring in stock right now I'm still having problems. Someone ordered two weeks ago and I never got notification.

At this point I'm just rolling with it, but I have to say my give a crap supply has just about run out. The hassle of dealing with the insurance company on the fire pretty much has that tapped out.

Hopefully I can get in next week and streamline my website. Everything except O-rings is going away and I'm going to set up a new email address to receive notifications. My current one gets 200+ spam emails a day.

Jim

I did finally get my O-rings shipped, and installed them on the vehicle. A Viton O-ring kit for the lift pumps would be a good item, especially since Mercedes charges $10 for just one of the O-rings, which has to come from Germany.
