Long story short me Kefir production got out of hand and I ended up giving all my grains to a friend who lives out of state.
A few months ago I decided I wanted to start my Kefir production back up. This time I placed an order, along with three other people, with Dominic Anfiteatro after reading his Kefir site:
To make another long story short it has been almost 4 months and I still have not gotten my order from Dominic. I sent him about $100 via Western Union and was told that the order would ship within a week. Since that time I have been told that the order didn't ship because:
1. Dom was in the hospital from a dog bite.
2. After almost 2 1/2 months Dom is still in the hospital because of a staff infection.
3. Order was shipped by Dom's wife (Never arrived)
$. Second order was shipped bu Dom's sister (never arrived)
4. Order was shipped by Dom. When it didn't arrive Dom told me that people we stealing stamps at the post office and my shipment probably had the postage stolen.
5. Dom then told me that he was going to ship another order and when I contacted him again a week later I was told that the weather was to cold and Kefir production was slow. He said he would ship me order the following week.
6. I have contacted him twice since then and gotten no reply.
I have been nothing but nice and polite through this whole deal, never uttering a harsh word. Has anyone else ever delt with Dom? I did research before placing the order and could find nothing that would lead me to believe that Dom would cheat me. I have already had to refund the money to the other people who went in on the order with me so I'm out $100. I've asked for a refund and Dom said he couldn't do that because of "all the money he had spent on shipping".
I am beyond frustrated and if I don't get a reply within the next 48 hours I am going to start being less than nice to Dom.
I think some hacker might be disguising as Dom and has ripped you off. Think about it. Gary Atlanta Sent from my iPhoneMessage 34 of 34 , Mar 15View SourceI think some hacker might be disguising as Dom and has ripped you off. Think about it.
