I called these guys and paid $100 for expedited service. I gave them the recipients 9-5 office and home address both downtown. They said they would pick it up on Friday afternoon. Of course they didn't show and called later to offer to pick it up on Saturday. By the following Thursday I sent them emails regarding the status to which they never responded. By Friday I called and they had no idea if it had been delivered. I called back and they said they would try and deliver it the following week. The guy ended up cursing at me and hanging up in my face. My court date will slip. I am simply appalled at their total lack of professionalism.

Dominion Process Servers are indeed a scam

AUTHOR: Kayla - (Canada)

I fully agree with Fredericks statement!!!

I used Dominion Process Servers to try and serve some court documents back in September. I had paid the money through email money transfer because that is what the guy asked for. I never received any calls or anything in regards to following up with how the service was going, I would call several times and leave messages and emails and they called me back once. The guy told me they tried once at the work address I provided and would try again on the Monday as this was Friday. A week went by and I didnt hear anything. I called everyday for several weeks along with emails and never heard back!! After about 3 weeks I tried calling again to find the 1-888 number not in service, very convienient!!! I then had to hire another Serving company and they were able to serve my documents the next day and even called me back letting me know and sent me the affidavidt a few days later. 

I tried calling Dominion Process Servers a few times a week since to see if someone would answer and no one ever did or called me back. About a week ago I blocked my phone number and called again, someone answered from Dominion. I explained how dissatisfied I was, they never attempted to deliver my papers except for one time, nor did they offer an affidavidt of attempted service, nothing!!! The guy apoligized and said I would get a refund by email money transfer since that is the way I paid. I waited a couple days and received nothing so I called back, surprise no one ever answered until I blocked my number then they answered on the first ring. The guy was surprised to hear I didn't get my refund yet I told him no and that I wanted it that day, he said okay. Waited another day and nothing so I called back must have been 20 times and then he finally answered and put me on hold for 15 minutes and then hung up on me and I have not been able to reach them since. 

 

Worst experience ever in my life!!!

Unfair, Untrue and Misleading Allegations

At Dominion we endeavor to ensure that all of our customers are satisfied with the results of the services they purchase.

The above report, filed by a dissatisfied customer by the name of Frederick , is, misleading and unfair.

To begin with, we acknowledge that Mr. F did retain the services of our firm to serve legal documents and did pay roughly $100.00 for the service. Mr. F was also aware that, as part of our flat rate fee plan, we would attempt service 3 times and, per his request for expedited service, the first attempt would be within 48 hours of our having received his documents. We followed through on all of our obligations to him.

We attempted to effect service no less than twice at the residential address he provided - unfortunately, no one appeared to be home. We then attempted to effect service at the work address he provided and were told by the company that the person was no longer employed there. We even went back and made a third attempt at the residential address - free of charge - again, no one appeared to be home.

We explained to Mr. F that he had several options in this situation. We offered to provide him with an affidavit of attempted service - this is the most common route following an unsuccessful serve and can be used to ask the judge in the case to allow service by simple regular mail. We also offered to conduct additional attempts at service if he would like to purchase these. This, apparently, was not sufficient for Mr. F who became verbally abusive with our staff and insisted on a refund. We explained that, as we had provided the services for which he paid, no refund was available.

Although we are able to serve over 97% of papers assigned to us, we do occasionally have situations, like this one, where service is difficult or impossible. The simple fact is that sometimes people go on vacation, refuse to answer the door, or, like the present case, we are provided with incorrect information. There is no company in our industry that can or will make a promise that a person will certainly be served due to the simple fact that sometimes circumstances beyond our control arise to prevent it. Unfortunately, Frederick seems unwilling or unable to understand this.
