Aparaphilia Bruce Parrott, Aparaphilia Portland Shady business owner who steals customer money, lies about merchandise and lives off dying dad Portland Oregon
Aparaphilia is a dishonest business owned by an even more dishonest man. Its a tiny shop, with little product. Wanted something they didn't have and owner convinced me he did most of his business by "special order." I placed a special order with him and was expected to pay in full. Said it would take a week.
One month later, still no product. Reached out to people who knew business owner and learned he was living off the finances of a dying father and having people make custom items and display them in his shop to sell, while not paying the makers for their products. Most products had been removed in the weeks between my visits.
When confronted about the order (which was never received), he became defensive and demanded I leave. Disputed the charge on my card and got the refund, but never saw the product. After asking around, I'm definitely not the first he's done this to.
The owner comes across as a pill-popping drama queen who is desperate to make a buck and run off to Costa Rica. Don't buy into the "feel sorry for me" routine. The guy is just shady.
