    Watch out for Neebo! I just got two threatening letters from a collection agency saying that we Neebo is taking action against us because we didn’t pay for books that were damaged.
    Let me say, we never even got an email from Neebo saying the books were received damaged, much less a request to cover the cost.
    I personally examined the books before they were sent back (I love my kids, but, you know 🙂 and the books were in pristine condition.
    I logged on to find I could only “chat” but the chatter refused to resolve the issue, and “Rachel” also refused to have a supervisor call me about the issue.
    She said someone would call in a few days. Nothing specific and no explanation about how we went from renting books to a collection agency in one step.
    Don’t use them.
