Dominic Biro / Dominanteng.com
 
*EDIT* I received an email this morning from Dominic. I was told they were on there way. He said I would receive a shipment notification when the shipping label was printed. I did not receive the notification but did find the box on my steps as I was headed out for work this afternoon. Glad to finally have them, still disappointed about the communication issues during this whole process. May 6, 2011.


On March 30, 2011 I ordered a set of rear camber arms for my 02 zx5 from Dominic @ dominanteng.com. He told me that they would take 3-7 days at the powder coat place and then would be shipped out. One month and 15 emails later I have not received my arms, cannot get a hold of him, nor can I file a complaint through pay*pal. First he lost my email address, then he couldn't find my shipping address because it wasn't listed on pay*pal (which it is and always has been. I checked) and now I just can't get a response from him.

I know you somewhat new to the site, but this is a big problem with some people and pay-pal. If you see it saying the money your giving him is a gift or a non purchase of goods, then the person on the other end of the deal is going to beat you for your money.

It should always have a very good description of what is going on, what is being bought, in what condition, when should it arrive, and for what make and model the seller says it fits, this way even if you get it and it doesn't fit or something, you can dispute it with pay-pal if the seller is not responding or avoiding you or sold you something different then what was agreed on.

Now I know this is a online site, but you should not have agrees to sending the money with the receipt saying the money is not for goods.

I've had PayPal for almost 10 years now and never had an issue till now. I contacted them about it, still waiting for a reply. I last heard from him 3 days ago and emailed my address to him twice that same day. I made the payment from my iphone app but never remember anything about it being a 'gift' payment. Just thought I would put up this post just incase anybody else decides they want something from this guy to really think twice about it. I found out about this guy and his site from another member on this site ( DirtBrown) and I guess (Demented SVTF) apparently purchased from him from what I understand. It really sucks because $180 is an entire paycheck for me.

I am really sorry to hear this man, I know what you mean about the $180 being a lot for you, I used to work for stop & shop, and... ugh... the worst experience ever.

but I do hope you get this figurered out, either way be very careful and read everything from a computer before agreeing next time.

I've gotten back on his site and the only way I have found to contact him was through his email address. I really wish he had a phone number. I'll just keep sending an email a day until I get them I guess.

Workin @ Domino's for $5.15/hr does suck.

He's also busy himself as a one-man workshop. It may have been a month, but give him some time. He has so much projects going on. The powder coater might also be busy too. He really is a good guy and makes quality parts. It's just that sometime it may take a while to get it pushed out.

If you want to order something from him, I'd suggest doing it over email, and then send him payments NOT through his website, but separately in paypal to his email address. That way you can select your product type.

But even in that case, he should be on top of it and sending out an email letting him know that it's going to be longer than expected. That's his responsibility as a business owner. Or it should have been stated in the beginning that he does it all himself, so there may be a setback.

If a seller gives someone a set date that their parts will ship by, and for some reason that date has to change, first priority is to let the buyer know. Not keep them waiting and keep them guessing.

Hopefully this gets resolved because it sounds like he's a decent guy. Just not making the best decisions.
