Zulfikar Hirji

Zulfikar Hirji - York University - Assistant Professor - Department of Anthropology is also the Page Administrator of The Largest Scam in Canada: Bloomex, a platform that the assistant professor is using to extort money from Bloomex.

 

In an effort to "protect" its brand Bloomex has gone to great lengths to have the site removed without success - we absolutely refuse to be BLACKMAILED. To that end we have decided to expose the good assistant professor for what he really is - an EXTORSIONIST. Detailed below is a copy of our internal order history and copies of email correspondence between Zulfikar Hirji (York University - Assistant Professor) and Dimitri Lokhonia (President and owner of Bloomex) where Zulfikar Hirji attaches a "price" to his demands. He is no longer just looking for a refund on the cake he claims was never delivered - he now wants $5,000 - actually make that $7,500 (see email string below).

The genesis of Zulfikar Hirji's hatred is a disputed "cake" delivery placed April 25, 2014

Here are the internal notes in regard to said order:

Hello Mr.Lokhonia, 

I understand your concern regarding this matter, and I can guarantee you that the page in question will be deleted permanently. The sum was raised to $7500 due to shutdown costs which were not considered over the phone. My counsel is drafting an agreement which will be sent to you by the end of today. If you have any further questions or concerns pertaining to this matter, please feel free to contact me over the phone.

hello Zulfikar,

as per phone conversation, we agreed on $5000. Now you are raising price for $7500.

What sort of guarantee can you provide that after we pay you, Facebook page is not going down or get " reincarnated" some time later somewhere else?

Dimitri

hello Zulfikar,

We never met before in person and did not have chance to talk on the phone.

We found out that you are the creator of " The Largest Scam in Canada:
Bloomex" facebook group.

I want to talk to you to clear a misunderstanding and possibly come to
mutually beneficial agreement.

Please give me a call at your earliest convenience at my cell phone 416
XXX XXXX,

Sincerely

Dimitri Lokhonia

If this "seems" like extortion we tend to agree - unfortunately our legal system's interpretation and enforcement of the law isn't moving into the 21st century as fast as social media has become a staple of our society and people like Zulfikar Hirji are still allowed to spew hatred and lies all while hiding behind the veil of anonymity that Facebook and other social network platforms provide.
