On April 23, 2012 I wired $24,000 to ZAUSA to purchase a 2005 Freightliner truck for export to Africa. The company owner, Dominic Senti and his sales people were adamant that I rush the remittance of the funds for fear of the truck not being available anymore being that it was in high demand. I sent the money immediately because I liked this particular truck. After a month, I realized they were attempting to switch me to a different truck without my knowledge and while attempting to make me believe it was the same truck we had agreed on - it was only after demanding the VIN number that I caught them in the act.
I had to take personal time off to fly down to Tampa from Washington DC to face these so called truck dealers. After I started reporting them to the police, they promised to supply me with another truck of equal value. Since I could tell they evidently didn't have my money on hand, I agreed to this second arrangement with the presence of the police. I was promised that the truck was already shipped to Africa. It would take me several phone calls and emails which he avoided before I would hear from Mr Senti, and when I did, he would supply with another series of lies. As of today, August 20, 2012, he still has not supplied me with a truck. It has been a series of excuses and no delivery. As I write this, Mr Senti has been avoiding my calls for over a week. I have reported the matter to the Hillsborough County Police and the to the Florida Better Business Bureau. I write this without my $24,000 and without a truck to show for it.
