The companies below are not in any way affiliated with Banana Box Wholesale Grocery. This newswire is provided as a service to those in the wholesale grocery business who do not want to make a mistake of ordering product from fly by night or less than honest companies. Sadly, we have seen companies and individuals taken for thousands of dollars. We wish they had opted to do business with us but people have a free will and we don’t twist anyone’s arm. I’m sure those that lost their money wished we had. 

We offer this information as a service to our customers who trust us. We place the information here so you are not ordering from companies who are out of business or who have potentially scammed unsuspecting out of their money.

Wholesale Amerxxx in Florida faces serious complaints from customers who wired money to purchase wholesale goods but never got them. BEWARE – Not only to the customers who ordered and didn’t get what they paid for but also to the perpetrator. 

Bank Wires sent from $1,700 to over $10,000. People never got the ordered goods. BEWARE and always proceed with caution. 

Our investigators discovered they’ve done this many times before,

since 2014. One customer paid for 6 pallets which he never received and filed a police report. We’re certain they’ll be getting a visit from the Feds before long. 

Some people don’t realize that when you use the bank wires and steal a customers money and don’t provide the goods, it is not only fraud,

but also wire fraud and theft. 

Also, the business below appears to be out of business.
