I had a negotiation with SHOPFLIPFLOPS for exactly a year now. A certain “MR. SILVA” of RASI COMMERCIO LTDA is the one responsible transacting with me. But then, as I deal with them, we’ve found out and has proven that it was SHOPFLIPFLOPS. The payment was made thru WESTERN UNION, under JESSICA MENDES DA SILVA (recipient name, and all other informations was provided by Mr. Silva). We paid $2, 401.00 on January 07, 2009, for 184 pairs of HAVAIANAS flipflops ordered ($2, 300-total for items ordered ; $100-WU service charge).Upon sending the payment and filling up the western union form, we clearly indicated that the receiver will be required to have a valid ID, or else money won’t be released to her.Obviously, only Jessica is the only one who could receive and claim the money.Therefore, she is the one who received the money. In short, we were transacting with SFF. From the very start of the transaction, what we assured of was if they are anyhow connected with Shopflipflops, and what we get is constant denial. and that time we never know at all that this Jessica was under SFF. The transaction went well, they communicate with us real well. Until, as the days went on responses received from them take days, weeks, months, and now, as of today, January 27, 2010, no response at all! On January 27, 2009 we received a partial set of pairs from them. 50 pairs out of 184 pairs of slippers ordered and paid for. As we go over the papers sent along with the package (commercial invoice, fiscal note, etc.), it came to us as a shock when we saw these informations:
Al Presidente Tanauy 1091
Curritiba, Pr Brazil
*with his signature on it (on blue pen!)
Then we did our further research, and found out that Jessica is under SFF, and the one who is behind everything.And found few of the hundreds of complaints against them. But all we get from them was denials. But all the papers reveal and prove that it was SFF from the start.Since then we have demanded for refund of the remaining money instead, they agreed with it, they even demanded (with no shame at all) that when they will send back the money the charge fee from the western union will be deducted from us??? Knowing they were the ones who has a problem why we need to refund our money.Instead of us demanding for the damage done to us, they were the ones asking from us?????
They did this, fronting another name, because of all the stories and complaints filed against them, now they’ve got to use another name.We have been holding on to the papers, receipts and all the mails and conversation made between us for a year now.To prove that it is 100% under SFF. They have not been treating us seriously because we have been so nice to them. Taking advantage of the attitude we have been showing them. Hoping that we will earn the same respect from them. But we were wrong. It has been a year now and yet, this is still haunting us. The shame from the people we owe the money we paid them, the insults, the threats and all and until now we haven’t paid everyone yet. We will never stop spilling this issue to everyone until we get justice from what they have done. We will make all the complaints and will never stop from posting their scam and modus, until these people communicate with us and give us back what they have stolen us. And if you Allan/Kent/Jessica is listening, ALL WE NEED IS FOR YOU TO GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY, GIVE US BACK WHAT YOU HAVE STOLEN US, and have at least a bit of conscience and stop stealing from people, you SCAMMERS!!!
Modus: they will transact well with you, then when they got your trust and when payment is settled, they wont respond to you periodically. Send you partial of your orders only, and when you won’t complain and freak out they will not get back to you anymore.
Beware everyone, take note of this informations, these people are SCAMMERS, they have scammed hundreds of people and stolen thousands of money all over the world! While you are working hard to earn even a little thru the help of these people, the people you are expecting to help you with this, are the ones who will turn your world upside down.KENT/JESSICA and SHOPFLIPFLOPS are one of this people.They will never care if this may cause you your life as long as they earn from you. Tsk tsk tsk.. Let us pass this to everyone, until no more will transact with them and get no more clients at all, before they steal from them like what they did to us.
