Mr Spears,since you will not respond to the numerous
emails I have sent to you.I have no choice but to put this on a public forum.
On August 18,2008 you notified me that your company(Empty Solution)was ceasing operations.
Your company has approximately 545.00 worth of my property.You have continued to accept shipments after the date you stated you would cease operations.
I expect the return of my property or payment for the items you have received.
Legal action will be taken against you if you do not respond.

I have sent a shipment of cartridges around that date to them. I was never notified they were going out of business. I was wondering why I hadn't received any payment for my shipment, so I went to their website ( emptysoluion.com ) and it no longer exists. If I had known they were closing and I wouldn't get my cartridges back, I would have sent them to another recycling company. I have also called and the message says "no one is available to take your call. goodbye." I am very mad they would do this to their customers!!

Well it looks like I am not alone. If they have known they were going out of business why even send me shipping lables. This was in July 2008. They shut there phones and website down and there is no way of getting in touch with the company. This is my first time doign business with this company. I have also called and the message says "no one is available to take your call. goodbye." As you know it takes time to collect pack and ship carteridges and I feel so so taken Please post email and contact information on this compnay if anyone.... and Mr.Biz it's not about just calling another source and doing business with another company these guys took money from us ...Ya DIG

My shipment of cartridges and cellphones (incl a Trio phone) was received via UPS on 8/15/08; email was received that they were going out of business immediately on 8/18/08. I too would like to know where my money is or I would like to have my cartridges and cell phones back - but I'm guessing they are in an Oregon landfill now.

I sent in my shipment and receive my check, but now the check will not clear the bank. Has anyone else had this problem? Where do we turn now?

I have 4 shipments that were sent to Empty Solutions - July 21st thru August 26th that we have not been apid for. We were never informed they were closing their doors - we were trying to contact them for more shipping labels and ound out they are no longer around. I too would like to have my cartridges back - how unethical to continue accepting shipments knowing you could not honour the payments - at least have the courtesy to inform your customers.

We were never informed they were shutting down. Our elementary school students collected and packaged these cartridges and cell phones to pay for fun educational programs and now I get to tell the kids the check won't clear. Nice! What should we do?

I'm submitting a claim with the state Attorney General and I would urge you all to do the same.

Well, since you're defending this low-life worm and his unethical business practices you can be assured I will NOT be using the suggested business for recycling.

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach. The organizations that use inkjet/cell phone recycling are usually non-profits who have to scrounge money to pay for programs for kids, military families, sports programs. This guy reaped the profits of all of our hard work and ran with it. For those who have seen his Flickr account, we know he has taken three costly vacations this year alone. Grrrr!

What do you want to bet he is opening up another recycling business in say...hmmmm...California?

This is not over Mr. Spears.

Well well well elliemae87,
I am not defending anyone for I am not a lawyer.Empty solutions was based in humm.... oregan Right ?
is that your location too !
I feel for the people that lost their phones & carts because of this company did what a lot more companies will be doing,going out of business.All I know is they paid our company in a timely fashion and the checks cashed.Nothing personal just business,we have no ties to this company.
Our company www.phonesells.net has just signed a contract with the GREENetwork to recycle in the state of california for all ewaste free of charge.

You are not alone. We sent in a large shipment and now I have a check that won't clear the bank. My daughter and I worked several weekends to meet their guidelines for packing requirements to help her raise money for a mission trip to Africa. Now her trip is in jeopardy thanks to Mr. Spears and his unethical business practices. Why bother even sending a check if there were no intentions of the check being honored. It is quite difficult to collect from many states away but I am relentless and will pursue this debt until it is paid or he is driven to bankruptcy or jail.

Well I guess we all have been taken by this cad. We are willing to join a class action personal lawsuit against Mr. Spears if anyone can locate him. just email me at [email protected] and I have proof of delivery by UPS that our cartridges were delivered on 6/25/08 and we have never been notified they were going out of business< We never got our check due us for over $100.00. This man needs jail time.
