*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Lies. An extortion attempt gone bad.
I did not want to write this report, but the conduct of this business owner, Mr. Shannon Parker, has left me no choice.
What started out as a simple misunderstanding and disagreement on eBay escalated into a campaign of harassment and bullying. I had purchased what was supposed to be a new iPhone from Spark iRepair (of Denver). The so-called "new" phone I had purchased from Mr Parker did eventually arrive but arrived clearly with signs of use -- a half-empty battery, and clear evidence of prior setup (it had already been through the initial setup screen, ie not factory new).
Most likely the device was pre-owned (i.e. used), or an Apple warranty replacement phone, but certainly not new. I checked the remaining warranty on the device and sure enough it had two weeks left. The owner had gone to great lengths to confuse the buyer, wrapping it in cellophane to make it "appear" new, using ambiguous and confusing language in the description as well. In retrospect I should have contacted the seller to verify the accuracy of the description, but I just assumed he was honest, as most are - my mistake!
I ultimately opened a dispute with eBay against Mr. Parker which I won and my money was fully refunded. The angry words and emails that started well before the dispute contiinued unabated and increased in intensity and frequency. Mr. Parker's emails were thick with shocking profanity and homophobic slurs - imagine that, you are a customer and the business owner is calling you a f*g*t, an idiot, and telling you to "suck d**k" (his words).
IT ONLY GETS BETTER. After having lost the dispute, and after having sent his last hate-filled email, he filed an anonymous report here on Ripoff Report posing as a disgrunteled customer of mine in Los Angeles (where I am based), even though a) my company has never done business with his, and b) he lives in Denver. This charade went on for days until he finally admitted his ruse and his real identity - and ultimately his real intention, to harass and defame me.
He took his harassment campaign over to Yelp and later Manta using similar tactics. These remarks have since been removed as they were baseless.
WARNING: Potential customers out there reading this, should you ever enter into a disagreement with Mr Parker, expect to be bullied, cyber-stalked, harrassed and be called an "idiot", or a "f*g*t", or whatever his expletive du jour is. If you place a high value on customer service and self-respect I advise you to go elsewhere.
This person has demonstrated clear sociopathic, anti-social behaviour, in his DISHONESTY, his acts of CYBER-BULLYING, CYBER-STALKING, BULLYING, HATE-SPEECH and routine use of HOMOPHOBIC slurs.
