Joe has resurfaced and we are negotiating a resolution (he can't find the bottle I paid for). I am optimistic that all will be satisfied. Thanks to whoever may have tipped him off.
Update: Joe found the bottle and it arrived safely earlier this week! Thus ends Scott's Great Commerce Corner Old Deal Scramble of 2017.

Update re: Peter C. -- we reached a mutually agreeable resolution and all is well. He is a good guy and was easy to work with!
I hope part of the deal was to send Peter Czyryca some vowels.

Add SommPicks to list of low-quality sources, where bad wine gets sent to be stuffed to those seeking QPR... buyer beware!! AVOID SOMMPICKS!!!

3/3 bottles were flawed. Explained now statistically low probability that was and they’re answer was it’s the buyers problem.

Highly recommend that no one buys aged wine at SommPicks. They don’t offer refund policies in line with tier 1 shops. Quality is weak as hell.

Jonathan Sirot NON-SENDER, NON-REFUNDER

Paid Jonathan January 5th for some Realm Bard which he promised to ship within two weeks. Numerous promised and missed shipping opportunities with favorable weather, always with many excuses from Jonathan about his busy schedule.

After very long phone call on 2/17 Jonathon promised to refund my money that day. This did not happen. After 48 hours I contacted PayPal.

Currently working through PayPal Goods and Services for a refund. Luckily I paid the extra fees for Goods and Services rather than Friends and Family.

Jonathan has not replied to numerous WB PMs since 1/30 even though he has been active on WB between then and now.

Phillip -

I have the same issue with Jonathan Sirot. I bought a three pack of Ultramarine in September 2019 with a promised ship date shortly after receipt. All I've received is a laundry list of excuses similar to what you have listed. He was supposed to finally ship them after his trip from the Bahamas on February 8th. I reached out a couple weeks later to give him a little time but no response from him again.

I've done business with him one other time and didn't have any issues so unfortunately sent him my payment via paypal FF. I honestly have no idea what's going on with him and this is a very disturbing trend from a long time WB member. I hope others aren't in this situation.

No idea what this is about, but I have ordered from Sommpicks.com a bunch of times. I havent had any issues. When you buy older wines its a gamble.

Jonathan Sirot update:

After filing a refund request with PayPal my money was returned.

He also sent this bat-bleep crazy PM after my money was refunded, apparently he didn't know PayPal had already returned my money:

"PHIIT IS THE MIDDLE OF WINTER FOR CRISSAKES ! I UNEXPECTEDLY ... WAS OFFERED A FREE !!!! VACATION BHY MY WHACKO !!! type AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AGRESSIVE psycho sister A FREEE FRICKING ROOM IN A 3 BEDROOM 3 bath townhome in the GODDDAMMMMMM BAHAMAS IN Freeporrrrrrrrt B A H A M A S !!!!!!!

I am just ramPINHG UP AFTER DABBLING FOR ONLY YEARS SINCE I WAS 9 WITH A KODAK POCKET CAMERA !!! don't call me I will Scream loud !!!!! your wine will DEVELOP ice cRYSTALS AT AROUND 18 DEGREES AND FREEZE AT 15 DEGREES !!! r u a rookie ???? obviously !!! call dennis and windy WHOI HAVE ATTENDED MY ct group every other month for the last 3 years ????? no no no DONT dennis used to be violent !!! give me your pAYPAL ADDRESSS AND I WILL FEFUND YOUR MONEY IN A FEW WEEKS WHEN I RETURN from savannah ga WHERE MY SON XXXX IS GETTING STRAIGHT a s ...

It's good to know he's got a "REALLY NICE 16 mp CAMNERA" I guess. But this is pretty much what PMs and phone conversations are like with Jonathan while trying to resolve him not shipping what and when he has promised. if this is what someone on WB wants to deal with then by all means have a go.

In summary, Jonathan promised several times to ship the wine when weather was good across the country but did not. He agreed to refund my money on 2/17 by PayPal, and promised it on that day, which he did not do. I waited 48 hours then filed a refund request on 2/19 with PayPal and was refunded on 3/3.

I have requested Jonathan stop PM-ing me.

I was lucky to get my Jonathan Sirot refund through PayPal resolution because I paid the extra Goods and Services fees. Looks like there are at least three of you who have problems with him. You may want to consider contacting the Middlefield CT police department or even the FBI for possible fraud.

When someone says they will pay you, then doesn't pay, it is almost always a cashflow issue.
Jonathan should just own up to that and say he needs more time to get his cashflow issue in order.

Or he could just go ahead and ship the wines that were sold. That shouldn’t cost him anything unless he sold the said wines to multiple people. Regardless, what he is doing is criminal.

Taking in money for wine one has, and then refusing to release said wine, is a cash flow issue? That's pretty questionable.

Going full bore psycho on a PM, however, goes well beyond any notion of cash flow.

He said he was out of the country. Understandable he couldn't ship.
He said he would refund over Paypal, but did not. This is what I am talking about. IF you say you will send money but do not, it usually means you don't have the money. Sending money with Paypal takes 30 seconds - you can do that anywhere in the world with your phone.

Beware of Lauren Hodges of Colorado.

Lauren reached out to me recently via e-mail in response to my ISO post on Commerce Corner. Sent me photos of the bottles I was interested in and my payment was sent to her on Monday April 6th via paypal f&f (mistake on my end). She promised that the wines would be shipped out on Wednesday April 8th. No update on that day, no response to my e-mails until Friday April 10th. She promised then that the wines will definitely go out the next day and cited family emergency as a reason for delay. Since then, she has gone dark. Number of e-mails sent, but no response at all. Planning on submitting a chargeback request. Very disappointing to say the least and I would advise everyone to stay away from her.

Rob - really sorry to hear you got scammed as well. If this happened well after issues surfacing then I’m not sure why his account is still even allowed to be active after several complaints coming to light about his theft from several members.

That sucks, so sorry to hear it. You should seriously consider contacting the Middletown CT police department or the FBI. I have phone numbers I can provide you by PM if you need them.

Probably not a good idea unless one of them has a liquor license. And in CT, I think that would still be an issue.
