Complaint / review text:
I just finished paying adriatic $330.00 and with in two days the phone number given to me was not in service anymore. First red flag. My heart dropped. When i called another number that was given to me by bob (the man that contacted me after i inquired about said company), he answered. I asked why he's business number was no longer in service. He replied, he had no idea what i was talking about and that he is having his calls forwarded thats how i reach him. I reached him by a second number that i had dialed. This number he provided for me, that was to be his cell phone number. Another red flag. Now the man that has my money is lying to me. He's trying to convince me that i'm apparently dillusional and do not know how i reached him. My heart dropped again and that's when it hit me that i just made a very big mistake. I told him i'm having problems with the papers he had e-mailed me and i did not want to sign tax's papers with U.S. Tax laws that i do not understand. I live in canada. Then he tells me that oh just fill in your name and address don;t worry about signing them. Third red flag. What company that your buying into does not need to have paper work filled out properly and signed??? I got of the phone after that as quickly as possibe. I needed some time to think. After a couple more days went by and no one was getting a hold of me like i was told they would. I tried e-mailing them. No answer except an e-mail telling me that they got it and need twenty four hours to get back to me. I treid calling bob again. The first number still out of order and the second one i left a message on. No return call. No calls about the website, no e-mails when i will have it started or finished. No nothing.
I phoned my lawyer bob ion on the matter and brought him up to speed. His advice was to go to paypal, where i sent the money from and see if i could stop the payment. I found out about a resolution centre at paypal and went that root. They put a hold on the funds. They are now in the process of doing an investigation in to the matter. That may take 30 days before i find out the resolution. Only minutes later after i filed my claim at paypal i got a angry call form the company. Now they wanted to talk to me. I not sure who it was because he spoke so fast and then ended up slamming the phone down on me, when i did not want to listen to his b. S. This was on the advice of my lawyer and paypal. You are to let paypal do the investagating. After that i started to do my own investigation on adriatic. See prior to this i was trying to find out about www.youradultstore.net. I did not know them as adriatic so i knew nothing about the rip off till i paid the money. Not till i found out there new name which now was on my contract was adriatic. Since then the following day when i was out, dear bob now was leaving me messages on my answering machine. Three in two hrs and fifteen minutes to be exact. I never answered his message's on the advice of my lawyer and paypal. I was told by paypal that if they keep calling to call the police and tell them i was being harrassed. The calls stoped thankfully on there own.
The reason i'm here is i refuse to be a victom of this company and i want anyone to contact me that has had a problem with this company so i can give this information to my lawyer. E-mail me at: [email protected] I tried to find other people to talk to who own one of these stores. There was a jennifer all so in canada that i treid to get a hold of, her store name is, hope chest adult toys, but there was no number on there to get a hold her. Jennifer please e-mal me. I am interested from hearing from fellow canadian's and americans that fell prey to this company. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks, joe ann
