Sergh J.Sapozhnikov of Toronto, Ontario, was offering Dell Studio 1537 and Dell Inspiron 1525 laptops for sell through the Kijiji classified system (ad reproduced at the bottom of this report). I called him, asked a few questions (Sergh said he had a relationship that allowed him to buy direct from Dell), and sent $614 through Paypal on July 27th. I was sent a Canada Post tracking number, which was generated using the online shipping label generation system. Sergh said the laptop would be mailed on July 29th.
As of August 2nd, the tracking information had not been updated, indicating the laptop was never dropped off at a Canada Post location. As I needed the laptop promptly, I cancelled the order by phone and by e-mail. On August 4th, I sent the following e-mail:
I'm sorry to keep bothering you, but I do need to hear back from you. As of 12:40pm PST today, Canada Post only shows
2009/07/27 19:22 MISSISSAUGA An order has been electronically submitted
Therefore I must conclude the laptop was not shipped last week as you had planned. And I have not heard back from you regarding the order cancellation and refund. I'm sure you're just busy, or on vacation, or something, but without communication from you, I have no way of knowing for certain.
If I have not received a refund by the end of the day today, or communication explaining what the current status is, I will have my credit card issuer dispute the transaction. I'd much rather settle with you directly--even keep $10 for your time.
Sorry again for the hassle, but it is a large amount of money to me, and I need to know what is going on. Thanks,
Sergh promised to refund me on August 11th, saying he was out of the country. On August 12th, he apologized for not refunding me, and said, "It should take few more days because I need to add money to my PayPal account."
That is the last I heard from Sergh. It is now September 4th. If Sergh provides a refund, I will update this report. Otherwise, I must conclude I am a victim of fraud, and advise against doing business with Sergh J.Sapozhnikov, Sevenway Inc., Zestappa, or any business or venture connected with Sergh. He operated under the e-mail addresses
and the phone number 647-835-3770.
