|I searched online for a replacement motor. After several queries, and emails from a number of businesses, I had a telephone conversation with Antonio Dominguez. He assured me he had my motor. He said he just had to have "his guys" go over it and prepare it for shipping. I believed at this time (Date/Time: 22-Apr-2011 11:40:25 AM ET Transaction ID: 3585363774) that he had the motor in his possession, and if I paid for it immediately I could receive it by Friday, April 29. I paid the money via debit card. The money was debited before I hung up the phone. Mr. Dominguez then sent an email with two attachments which, among other things, added a statement not previously mentioned that he would deduct a 20% "restocking" fee on any canceled order. This was after the debit cleared my bank. Then, April 29 came, and went. On Monday, May 2, 2011 I called Mr. Dominguez to inquire as to the location of my motor. He said he would call me back in 20 minutes. After three hours I called him again, and at that time he said "his guy was having problems with the shipper". I told him then that I didn't want to wait, he already was late on the delivery, and now he tells me he never actually had the motor. It was going to be straightened out, and I would get the motor we agreed on. (60k miles, 2002 Ford Focus SPI Vin 8) with a 60k mile warranty. Then he gave me the phone number of "his guy"who's name is Paul the owner of an auto parts recycling business in Windsor, Ontario. When I called and talked to Paul (May 2, 2011)he informed me he had already told Mr. Dominguez that his shipping costs had doubled, and "no way" was he going to loose money on the deal. He also said he had returned the money in full to Mr. Dominguez, and read to me the letter he emailed. I called Mr. Dominguez and told him what Paul had told me. Mr. Dominguez said he would return my money, minus the restocking fee. I told him there was nothing to restock, that Paul did not charge him, and since he broke the contract he could not charge me. Now, when I try to call Mr. Dominguez he does not answer the phone, nor does he reply to my emails. On May 4, 2011, he sent an email stating "YouR order has been Canceled.. A credit to your card wiLl be issued. Thank you for using parts.com". That part was copied and pasted. Other than that no contact. I did not "cancel" the order, he did. He did not have the engine he said he did. I called him and left a message that if I didn't hear from him by today, Friday May 6 2011 I would turn this matter over to the FBI to have him investigated for internet fraud. I believe this to be fraud because he never had in his possession the engine he sold me. He led me to believe he had his own salvage yard, as depicted on his website. He also led me to believe he had the motor, or I would not have sealed the deal.|
My name is Tony The person who dealt with Mr Lawson everything he has said here in this report is false.
As was explained to Mr.Lawson the shipping time is estimated between 7-10 days!
Mr lawson Wanted me to have the engine to his door step in 3 days which was not possible, After the Three days came he informed me that if he did not recive the engine the following day he wanted to cancel the order and I explained the Terms of his purchase in that he signed and returned in e-mail prior to us trying to ship the Engine.
We do not under any circomstance charge a credit card without first receiving the signed Agreement!
Mr. Lawson should remove any and all negative posts about this company if not we wil persue in court for slander.
|TONY- YOUR A FRAUD AND A LIAR! I WOULD EMPLORE YOU TO DARE "PURSUE IN COURT" AS THE FBI AND PINELLAS PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT ALREADY HAVE YOU UNDER THEIR RADAR! YOU THINK YOU CAN DODGE THE LAW BY HAVING "NORMAL" BUSINESS PRACTICES IN PLACE? YOUR PRACTICE ISN'T NORMAL!!! ITS A FRAUD!!! HOW MANY 20% RESTOCKING FEES HAVE YOU RIPPED OFF FROM AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR MERCHANDISE THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE OR "BROKE" DURING SHIPMENT?! |
P.S. THIS IS FROM ANOTHER CONSUMER YOU RIPPED OFF! NOT THE GUY WHO POSTED THIS PARTICULAR COMPLAINT- YOU WILL GO DOWN YOU SCUM!
|Hi, my name is kyle. I was just searching the web for his business to recommend for a friend. Then i stumbled across these negative comments. I live across the us from this guy but i made a purchase from him with great satisfaction! i purchased a very rare transmission, there was only one for sale in the us and it was his. i contacted him, paid about $850 for it. they bench tested the trans first, replaced one seal and a shift arm, then slapped a 6 month warranty on it!! Tony is a good guy and i feel they have a very respectable business. i just don't see why he would scam only a few people. since i received my product, he is obviously a legitimate business and there is no point in ripping off a few. |
a 20% restocking fee is common in the automotive industry. i work for lithia and we have that as well. they cant just take it back and put it up on a shelf to take up room for god knows how long for nothing.
tony i am very sorry this bad internet publicity has happened to your company. i received my transmission almost a year ago now and it is running great!
|Thank yhou kyle, for letting the people know the truth! Appreciated..|
