Harrassing and phishing for payment through Paypal by using eBay contact information.

Continuous billing for $59.95 through request for payment for absolutely nothing in hopes I will accidently pay the invoice. Contacted Paypal to assist in putting a stop to this. Had to eliminate an email address to put a stop to it and change email in various online accounts. Reported to IC3.gov which is equivilent to the FBI and the BBB in Canada.

STAY AWAY from Benoit Dombrowski of Angus Coin Shop selling as angus_coin_shop on eBay!

Check out his new revised shipping to US customers. First Class A-Hole!

Had an Experience with Angus Coin Shop?

This guy is bad news!!Any good reviews are probably fake!!

You really have to be careful who you deal with!

Somehow he convinces (harasses, threatens) e-bay till they remove negative comments about him, then he sends harassing, threatening e-mails to you. Also check out his disputes and some of his ignorant comments.

"You asked for the cancelation, dumbbell" Was there really a need to call the guy dumbbell, really?

"Called him today, Canada post lost the item, you are now on my blocked list." So the guy complained he didn't get the item, Angus coins looks into it and finds its not his fault and blocks the seller???? Why not explain to the buyer it was Canada post and apologize for the inconvenience Canada Post caused and move on, but why block the guy?

"ANOTHER PQ NUM NUM THAT DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO READ." This one probably crosses the line and I am not from even from Quebec.

" UNEDUCATED, CLEARLY STATES IN LISTING X 2; the # 4 is present on the coin you w." Calling the guy uneducated when you don't have a freaking clue about the guy!

Rude!! " Error was from ebay itself, you got refunded the ebay overcharge,you are blocked" The buyer gave angus coins a neutral review and still got blocked. Why? Well I will tell you what Dombrowski....

you are blocked....!! You are rude and not worth the time to deal with.

Consumer Beware.The way he conducts business, someone will eventually take a drive to Angus,...

I had reported above "that the message was posted from an IP address that is in and near New Tecumseh, Alliston and Mount Albert, ONTARIO, not very far from Angus or Barrie where Benoit Dombrowski slithers about, less than an hour drive at the most.

Ontario is a massive territory. Coincidence? I think not."

See here that the nonsense post comes from Alliston ONTARIO just as my investigation has pointed out earlier.

The poster of the following is most likely one and the same who has sent me the email supposedly from Jeff Isabelle.

I have been buying from Angus Coin Shop for some time now, Praise Praise Praise is all for this little local store.

Always friendly, easy to get along with and very honest.

Very much recommended

I reported the email to customercare-en@cc.yahoo-inc.com as harassment and they replied as follows:

Odd, is it not, that a person on the very next day marathon runner on September 11, 2012 from alliston, ontario, CA

responds on behalf of Angus Coin Shop with such high praise.

That post only helps validate my claim that I have been harassed from this person and it continues to go on and on.

Benoit Dombrowski told me when I stopped into his store that he is a marathon runner, so it would be no surprise that he'd use that moniker in an e-mail address.

There's a good chance that the praise message was authored by Benoit Dombrowski himself.

Reading all the posts here is necessary as this seems to go on and on over a .95 cent Canadian coin that was never sent or received by me.

YOUR THE AMERICAN *** THAT LIKES TO STEAL FROM CANADIAN SELLERS, SEND PROFANE MESSAGES AND INTERNET RAPPING.

BAD NEWS FOR YOU, THE NEWS IS SPREADING. VERY SOON YOU WONT BE ABLE TO BUY ANYTHING FROM CANADA.

STOP BEING A *** DONKEY, ITS COMING BACK TO *** YOU.

What is *** is that this person Jeff is most likely another Isabelle who is one of the few friends that Benoit Dombrowski has and the message was posted from an IP address that is in and near New Tecumseh, Alliston and Mount Albert, ONTARIO, not very far from Angus or Barrie where Benoit Dombrowski slithers about, less than an hour drive at the most.

Ontario is a massive territory. Coincidence? I think not.

The Isabelle that has sent me this has fallen for the typical twisting and turning around of facts and thinks he is doing Benoit Dombrowski a favor but getting himself involved with each harassing email he sends.

This is a retaliation for a claim I initiated through Paypal for a .95 cent 2012 Canadian nickel that was purchased on 7/22/2012 and immediately paid for by me, yet never received.

Beniot Dombrowski promptly refunded the $3.94 that I was charged which included the shipping after I filed a dispute on 8/6/2012.

Beginning 8/7/2012 I have been getting INVOICES from Paypal for various amounts but have cancelled at least 10 requests for payment for $59.95 CAD since I did not order anything further from anguscoins@rogers.com from Beniot Dombrowski.

I have contacted eBay several times, I have contacted Paypal several times and they have written to Beniot Dombrowski with the following:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)

This is entirely false information in the response provided by Angus Coin Shop - Beniot Dombrowski on August 14, 2012.

I have a complete and rather lengthy record of this entire ordeal with message detail and message sources and telephone records from my provider with the many calls I made to both eBay and Paypal to have them ask Beniot Dombrowski on my behalf to put a stop to the harassment. I have the copies of the communications in my cancellations of continued attempts by...

Beniot Dombrowski cannot produce anything that shows that I have ordered anything for any amount from him that amounts to a total of C $59.95 or C $40.90 which were the amounts I was billed for many times.

I implore you to demand that Beniot Dombrowski produce proof for an order for anything justifying those amounts and ask him to show you the actual order. He has nothing to show, thus my complaint is justified.

He has nothing to prove his lies in his response that "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx keeps on asking me for an invoice on the coin in question after each cancellation."

This harassment began when a a payment of $3.94 CAD to angus_coin_shop was refunded by the same when an item I had paid for was not received and I opened a case with eBay for a refund of payment.

This item has never arrived to date.

I had to change my email addresses and passwords in both eBay and Paypal to put a stop to getting billed.

I will gladly forward these facts to the BBB upon request, either electronically or by hard copy through the mail. Whatever is needed, I am completely available to produce my evidence upon request.

I do not accept any response from Beniot Dombrowski. The damage is done. My complaint stands and should become public information.

I have proof that my complaint is substantiated and true. I am not the person in the position to be defending myself as the response by Beniot Dombrowski on August 14, 2012 is attempting to do.

Thank you.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This consumer is playing games. As a business, it is my obligation to fulfill customer request. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx keeps on asking me for an invoice on the coin in question after each cancellation. I will stop sending invoices to him; all his e-mails will be blocked including the internet. It is now obvious that he is an undesirable consumer that only wants to hurt businesses. I just got off the phone with one of your representative to remove sensitive banking information that xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx had included in the message.

Desired resolution; I want xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx banned from using BBB, that will prevent him from trying to hurt another business.

I had purchased 4 auctions on Ebay in January 2012 totaling $43 and never received the coins.Benoit Dombrowski did the same thing to me.

Paypal refunded my money in less than 2 days, then I received request for money 2 to 4 times a day for the next several weeks through the Paypal system. Ebay would do nothing. Paypal finally paid him the money out of their own pocket to stop this. He was able to get the 4 negative feedbacks removed that I left for him.

I have 1100 perfect feedbacks and he even left vulgar comments in a positive feedback to try to hurt my reputation in my feedback.

Ebay support lied and did not do anything to stop this guy from continueing to harass other people and steal money through the Paypal system.Stay away from this dirtbag.
