thanks for the heads up you should send his name to the BBB it only takes a call we had to report someone after we bought our house last year and it was a painless ordeal and they got results for us!

I agree, definitely report it to the BBB. I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

we should all start emailing him saying we want to use his service and then when he responds to us we can say that we heard he's not good to do business with because he's a cheat and steals deposits.

Here was what he said - want me to say anything else?

Hello Ann,


I cannot find that I have previous emails from you. Please let me know what situation you are writing about and I will do my best to rectify things.


The only type of work I require a deposit for is custom calligraphed marriage certificates. All other work I accept payment only after everything is complete. I take the honor system seriously and send my work all over the world without payment in advance.


Communications via email can be tricky, so please let me know what is going on so that I can be sure I have been getting the messages.


Please email me with your reply. If you do not hear back from me within 48 hours, you may call me on my cell phone: 352-514-3838, Eastern Daylight Savings Time.


Best Regards,
Stewart J. Thomas

was your paypal payment using a credit card? or was it a direct withdrawl from a bank acct?
if you paid using a credit card you can call your cc company and explain the situation - I'm not sure how it works in conjunction with paypal, but I think in most cases the cc company will go to bat for you and retrieve the disputed funds..
(and I bet you'll hear from him pretty quick then!)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
