    This article fails to report the follow-up: that the charges against Mr. Perlov were later dropped. The original police accident report did not indicate that Mrs. Perlov and the neighbor were passengers in the car; that was the basis of the fraud charge when they sued for their injuries. The next day, the police filed an amended report which did show the passengers, but it did not come to the attention of the District Attorney until much later. When the D.A. was shown the amended report, the charges were dropped. Unfortunately, by that time, Mr. Perlov — an innocent man — had spent many thousands of dollars on a criminal defense attorney and lost his business as a result.

    This Igor is a lair and a cheat (see EBAY – USER ID = tankist1. He says he worked as a NYC Detective, not true according to this article.

    Perlov’s ebay “about me” page does not say he was a NYC detective. It says he is a former member of the NYPD and a member of a detective’s association. And he has 5,042 positive feedback comment on ebay. Why don’t you learn how to read before you post libelous nonsense about a man, and why don’t you have the guts to post your real name if you’re going to slander somebody?

    Once again, it is essential to point out that THE CHARGES WERE DROPPED. The charges were the result of a mistake by the police when they filled out the accident report. The police left out the fact that Mrs. Perlov and Mr. Shvartz were in the car. When the D.A. discovered the amended police report which showed that the two were actually in the car, all charges were dropped.

    DISTRICT ATTORNEY – NEW YORK COUNTY

    News Release
    June 6, 2001
    Contact: Barbara Thompson
    212.335.9400

    Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau announced today the indictments of four people for trying to steal millions of dollars from the City of New York by bringing fraudulent personal injury lawsuits. Today’s indictments involve two separate schemes. In the first, a Brooklyn couple and their neighbor tried to cheat the City out of $3 million by falsely claiming that they had been seriously injured in a Brooklyn collision with a Fire Department ladder truck. In the second, a Brooklyn cabdriver tried to steal $1million by falsely claiming that he was injured in a sidewalk fall in Queens.

    The indictments resulted from investigations by the City Department of Investigation and the State Insurance Department’s Insurance Frauds Bureau.

    The first indictment charges IGOR PERLOV, a security guard, INNA PERLOVA, his wife, and LIDIYA SHVARTS, their neighbor, both home care attendants, with Attempted Grand Larceny in the First Degree and Perjury in the First Degree. INNA PERLOVA and SHVARTS were also charged with Perjury in the First Degree, Perjury in the Second Degree, Making a False Statement in the First Degree, and Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree.

    IGOR PERLOV was driving alone in his car on May 29, 1998 when he collided with a Fire Department truck at Avenue V and Ocean Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The investigation revealed that PERLOV lied in sworn testimony on March 8, 1999, in a preliminary examination at the Comptroller’s Office, when he asserted that his wife, PERLOVA, and their neighbor, SHVARTS, were in his car when the collision occurred. Both PERLOVA and SHVARTS lied, first in notices of claim they filed on June 26, 1998, with the Comptroller’s Officer, when they asserted that they had been passengers in PERLOV’s car when it collided with the fire truck. They both lied a second time, in sworn preliminary examinations at the Comptroller’s Office, PERLOVA on January 29, 1999 and SHVARTS on April 20, 1999, when they again testified that they had been passengers in PERLOV’s car when the accident occurred. Finally, they both lied a third time, in sworn testimony on January 24, 2001, during pre-trial depositions at the City Law Department, when both women claimed that they had been passengers in PERLOV’s car at the time of the collision.

    The PERLOV investigation began in August, 2000, when the City Law Department obtained police and accident reports indicating that PERLOV had been driving alone in his car, a 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis, when he collided with a Fire Department ladder truck in Brooklyn.

    I bought something and paid for shipping and he shipped without any postage on the package so I had to pay an additional fee to the post office as postage due and now he does not want to refund the money I paid them. I see mailing theft is now in his agenda? I will be sure to forward his envelope to the postakl inspectors if I do not get a refund.

    Ebay lets you leave negative feedback if you have a problem with a seller. I am very curious as to how this Kathy person managed to find a 3-year old article about Mr. Perlov and then decide to use it to complain about an ebay transaction. Something mighty fishy is going on here.

    Lawrence is surely a relative or paid by this lying, thieving Igor Perlov. I haven’t found anything but good old Lawrence’s assertion that the charges were dropped or why. Generally, a retraction is printed along with a disposition. Look at the vast number of negative feedbacks this man has amassed and it is clear that his new career is ripping people off. He goes by tankist1 on ebay. My name is Terri Taylor, Attorney at Law.

    Attorney Taylor, it is hard to believe that a real lawyer would make a comment as reckless as the one you made. Since it is a matter of public record, you might be interested to know that I am representing Mr. Perlov in a suit for damages against the City of New York in connection with his false arrest in connection with the fraud charges that were dropped. Perhaps you would like to find yourself a defendant in a libel suit, so you can learn the consequences of reckless charges made in print.

    If what you say is true, then you know that the truth is an absolute defense and I DO have abundant proof that Perlov is a liar with a new vocation. My commentary is a public service and not a reckless act, I can assure you. Perhaps there is some evidence you can post to support your many claims in his defense? You are welcome to fax me any such evidence. Simply send me a letter on your letterhead enclosing it. It’s 11032 Nicholas Lane, A202; Berlin, MD 21811.

    The above link will provide 185 ebay member names if anyone needs to contact those who were defrauded by Igor Perlov.

    therogakreport,
    Since you’re an insurance defense attorney I would suggest you recommend a good criminal trial attorney for Mr. Perlov. He is going to need one after the 47 people who are currently working with the district attorney, several Postmasters and soon the Postmaster General bring charges against him.

    Some may think that it’s “only ebay”, but when your client decided to bilk these ebay users out of thousands of dollars, it’s not “only ebay” anymore. Now it’s called mail fraud.

    I think it’s extremely curious that you decided to post your ebay-related comments onto this article which was written three and a half years ago. Obviously you have some kind of personal axe to grind and you get a kick out of slandering Mr. Perlov. If there is indeed a Postal Department investigation of Mr. Perlov, please post a link to the story about it. If there is no story, then obviously you made it up because the Postal Inspector does not make its investigations public. It is you, Mr. “Candell,” who is the scam artist.

    Now why would there be a link to the “story” when postal investigations are not public? You know that doesn’t make sense now, don’t you?
    Did you ever think that this information is known by me because I am one of the buyers defrauded involved in this investigation? That isn’t a big stretch now Mr. Rogak.
    And as for calling me a scam artist – Mr. Perlov’s 185 negatives on ebay do not lie. Sure, one, two or even a dozen negatives could be chalked up to part of doing business, but 185 people who all have the same problems (Mr. Perlov sending defective items, receiving money but not sending items, etc.) are indicative of a serious problem. You can try and shade this anyway you like, you can call myself and whomever else scam artists with an axe to grind, but the bottom line is that Mr. Perlov is running a mail fraud ring through ebay.
    I wouldn’t expect anything less of you than to defend your client as it’s your job and you’re going to get paid well if Mr. Perlov wins his suit. With that said, you can call whomever you wish whatever names you wish on here but that does not change the fact that your client is breaking the law.
    I wonder how you’d feel if you purchased something worth a few hundred dollars through ebay and when it arrived it was broken. You email the seller to see what can be done and you’re told that you’re out of luck. I have a feeling (as a lawyer) you’d push your weight around and do whatever needed to be done to get the situation resolved to your liking.
    So go ahead and call myself and anyone else who comes on here scam artists and whatever else you wish. The childish insults are not going to change your clients wrong doings and are not going to change the fact that several investigations are in the works as we speak to once and for all prevent Mr. Perlov from continuing his history of fraud.

    Mr. Perlov’s ebay rating is 97% positive. 185 negatives compared to 5000 positives isn’t bad. So your item arrived broken? Boo hoo. If an item broken in the mail makes a seller a crook, then we need to lock up most of America’s major retailers. I’ve bought a few things on ebay that arrived broken and I put in my claims with UPS. Many of those claims were denied, and I was just S.O.L. That’s life. I suggest you keep your ebay complaints on ebay and let us know when and if the Postal Inspector actually makes a finding that Mr. Perlov did anything illegal (an investigation means nothing — ANYBODY can make a complaint and the P.I. will investigate). And get a life while you’re at it. Meanwhile, the bottom line is that the charges against Perlov were DROPPED when it was discovered that the police made an ERROR on their accident report and that Perlov was actually telling the truth.

    This man is unethical and a swindler. He gets away with selling defective products on E-Bay because there is usually no recourse for the unsuspecting, unlucky buyer. A check of his past negative comments will reveal some people cheated out $200+ for a pairs of defective binoculars. He has also sold numerous defective pedometers, and make-up that is partially used. He advertises his E-Bay products as “new” or “out of the box” when, in reality, this garbage must have fallen off the back of a truck, or purchased at an “as is” clearance sale. I know for a fact that his binoculars are defective because I recently became one of his victims. He does NOT abide by the rules of good conduct to which most E-Bay sellers adhere, and he expresses absolutely no remorse for selling you something defective because he probably knew it was broken before he mailed it to you. I think all the people he has scammed should get together and file a joint civil suit against this carpetbagging snake-oil vendor so that they can get their money back. I would like to join up with others who have been cheated. If you have had a bad experience with this man, please e-mail me with your story. I am starting a Yahoo Groups page so we can start building up information on just how many people this jerk has swindled. The only way to stop this cheat is to hit him where it hurts — in the wallet! rippedoffbyperlov@yahoo.com

    It seems awfully strange that yet another person has decided to tack his ebay complaints onto a 4-year-old article in an insurance journal. Obviously these comments all come from the same disturbed person who has a bone to pick with Mr. Perlov. One has to ask, if this person truly had an ebay issue, why isn’t he dealing with it through ebay? And why doesn’t he give his real name? Obviously this is a stalker with a psychological problem.

    I am not revealing my name because I am collecting this information to give to an investigative news reporter in New York City. It’s the only way to proceed unimpeded. This is a big consumer fraud story. I believe the reason that people refer back to this article, even though it is from 2001, is that it is indicative of Mr. Perlov’s true colors. I do not know if the fraud charges were really dropped by the D.A.’s office. I will call them tomorrow. Mr. Rogak, I’m sure you are a very talented lawyer. I would suggest that you use your legal skills on someone more worthy than Mr. Perlov. He really is not worth defending because he is morally bankrupt.

    First of all, why don’t you indicate the source of your intense interest in Mr. Perlov which causes you to make comments in regard to this 4-year old news story. Second, if you want proof that the charges were dropped against Mr. Perlov, why don’t you check with the Manhattan D.A.’s office? After all, if you’ve taken all this trouble to make posts against Mr. Perlov under all these different names, you should have enough energy to check the record of the charges being dropped. Thanks to the Internet, any idiot can make anonymous comments.

    This is bigger than ebay. I read through Perlov’s feedback, and decided to do business with him becasue of his high feedback ratio to negative feedback. Much to my dismay, I received an item that was not as pictured or described, and attempted to resolve this issue before leaving feedback. Responses from Perlov were rude and accusatory, and he would not attempt to solve the issue. I am working with ebay regarding this, but buyer beware. It appears as though Mr. Perlov is a big scam artist, and this is unfortuante for those of us who entered into an agreement with him in good faith.

    Has anyone been able to verify that the carges were dropped against Perlov and if so, why? Or whether, in fact, he has a lawsuit going for wrongful prosecution? Nothing on either are coming up on my internet searches and he’s stablished that he lies and can’t be trusted. Do we weven know is there is a Lawrence Rogak, or that he is a licensed attorney. His conduct leads me to believe otherwise. Thanks.

    What a fascinating discussion. I couldn’t help but weigh in. I’m writing as someone who as defrauded by the gentleman in question. It was a really clear cut case of fraud, with an indisputable violation of the Magnuson Moss act, as well as a violation of implied warranty laws. As much as one might argue that people are cheated every day when making purchases over the internet, and it’s not that big a deal, Federal Trade laws exists to protect consumers, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s ok to violate them when internet auctions are involved.

    I was very skeptical of the identity of this supposed lawyer. My initial reaction was to automatically assume that a real lawyer would simply defend his client in COURT, rather than childishly mocking his detractors on an internet forum. But he checks out. He seems to be a real lawyer. And apparently quite a dedicated one.

    You’re just a creep who thinks he can hide behind a user name and post crap on the net to slander people. Why don’t you go ahead and publish the “dirt” you found on me? I’d love to read it. Just a little advice, though: make sure it’s true before you publish it. Otherwise, I will find out your identity by serving a subpoena on Insurance Journal to disclose your IP address and trace you down, and then you’ll learn a bitter lesson about libelling people online.

    The reason that I chose to stay anonymous was to avoid retaliation from Mr. Perlov. He does of course have my home address since I have ordered good from him. I have made numerous attempts to resolve this dispute with him civally. He, as of yet, has not left feedback for me, and I think he does this to see what is left about him. I did not ask him to refund money or accept a return, I merely wanted to know what he could do to rectify the situation. In return, I received a rude, accusatory response. I will make my complaints with ebay, however, buyer beware when it comes to Igor Perlov.

    This man has taken my money for an auction and has not shipped the item. He will not email me with any straight answers. I am glad that it was a low money auction but it is the principle of the matter. He is a crook. When I ask if he has received my payment (sent over a month ago) he just replies “we ship items promptly after payment arrives” – okkkkkkk.

    Welcome to the world of Igor Perlov. I now have negative feedback due to him, even though I paid promptly and tried to resolve issues with him through email. He is a fake, a phony, and a cheat.

    I’ve sent my complaints to ebay. It was through ebay that I found out how this man works. This has simply become an outlet for those that were cheated. Now people now. Thanks to the person who posted the info in their ebay feedback– more will know now.

    I don’t know about the charges, but since I recently purchased an item from Mr. Igor Perlov, I sincerely hope that he is at least trying to be an honorable man during his time on earth. But given the controversy, I also wondered if there was an attorney named Lawrence Rogak. I googled him and guess what – he does exist, is an insurance attorney, and apparently has quite a collection of signs – here’s the link –

    http://www.forgotten-ny.com/SIGNS/collector/collector.html

    If Mr. Perlov is indeed an honest man, it sounds like he needs to start offering postal insurance on his packages, and maybe remember to include his return address on them. Maybe his lawyer could suggest that as a way to make at least some of his future customers happy. :)

    I have brought stuff from this seller on Ebay and as far as I am concerned he has been brilliant!
    Fast delivery, excellent items … no problems at all. When you sell as much stuff as he does you’re going to get some negatives, he is, by far, not the worst seller on Ebay.
    Lets not forget people, some of us make mistakes, no one is perfect!
    Show me someone who hasn’t made any mistakes in their life and I’ll show you a liar!

    Perhaps Mr. Perlov was going through a bad spell, because I noticed numerous negative feedbacks after mine, but he seems to be back on track. Unfortunately, he is not the most honest person out there, and is one of those people that will leave unjust feedback, even when you make attempts to be professional and polite. I’ve won my case against him, and have since learned that there are decent people out there on ebay.

    As for Mr. Rogak, he is in fact a lawyer, however, I understand that his name is quite common there, much like Larry H. Parker. That does NOT mean that the person responding here is Mr. rogak.

    Maybe people gravitate toward this insurance journal because when they Google Igor it comes up in the first couple of hits. I took the long way around and Googled his address.
    He tried to take me, but I cut him off at the pass. I was going to leave negative feedback, but looking at his previous transactions I didn’t bother-I figured he would just call me names and give me negative feedback.

    Here’s the timeline:

    7/3: Auction completed using Buy it Now.
    7/6: Payment mailed
    7/12: IGOR: “no payment rec’d” reply
    7/17: IGOR:”no payment rec’d” again
    Me: “But you deposited my cashiers check on the 11th!”
    7/17 IGOR: “We don’t understand the information you’re looking for”
    Me: You cashed my check on the 11th, but say you haven’t rec’d it”
    7/17 IGOR: “This may be a mistake of Ebay that they sent you a non-paying bidder alert, please email a copy of your check with my signature.”
    Note: I did NOT receive an NPB, I never even mentioned it.
    7/18 I sent a scan of the check front and back, that I had to go to my bank to get.
    7/18 IGOR: Yes we cashed your check. We do shipping 12 hours within receiving payment. If you do not receive your item within 14 days of check clearance, let us know and we’ll do a full shipping information research.
    I rec’d my item, (a cell phone) on 7/25, shoddily wrapped in a half crushed box, WITHOUT the insurance I had paid for.

    amazing what info you can find on the net,
    I was just an unhappy scammed eBayer by Mr. Igor when I stumbled upon all the posts about him, I just wanted to settle my dispute and did some investigation and found all this dirt on IGOR, I received a broken cell phone from this man, he told me it is AS IS condition and to read the agreement. Product was improperly packaged but wasnt broken by Carrier, it was an internal broken part due to wear and tear of father time.
    go to link below to see all complaints about this Ebay seller.
    Just doesnt seem right to make a negative feedback and seller can reply with a negative feedback of buyer in retaliation.
    and what is with this lawyer dude Lawrence Rogak?, he is stooping to IGOR’S level and has too much time on his hands, gosh I must of wasted time here but I was ripped off! we all need to vent a little when we are burned!

Was sent this link by another ebayer and I can’t believe all this crap here. why does what happened some 4 years ago have to do with today? I suppose no one here has a past? Wow, this is insane. I will always buy from this seller. There are many many worse sellers on ebay. the only negatives I see are for little rinky dink electronics. You get what you pay for.
    thanks.

    Matter of Perlov v Kelly
    2005 NY Slip Op 06378
    Decided on August 11, 2005
    Appellate Division, First Department
    Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
    This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.

    Decided on August 11, 2005
    Saxe, J.P., Marlow, Ellerin, Nardelli, Sweeny, JJ.
    5418 Index 118701/03

    [*1]In re Igor M. Perlov, Petitioner,

    v

    Raymond Kelly, Police Commissioner of the City of New York, etc., et al., Respondents.

    Lawrence N. Rogak, LLC, Oceanside (Eileen H. Persky of
    counsel), for petitioner.
    Michael A. Cardozo, Corporation Counsel, New York
    (Elizabeth S. Natrella of counsel), for respondents.

    Determination of respondent Police Commissioner, dated July 2, 2003, which, adopting the recommendation of an Administrative Hearing Officer, revoked petitioner’s license to carry a pistol, confirmed, the petition denied and the proceeding (transferred to this Court pursuant to CPLR 7804(g) by order of the Supreme Court, New York County [Doris Ling-Cohan, J.], entered April 13, 2004) dismissed, without costs.

    Extraordinary power has been delegated to the Police Commissioner in matters of handgun licensing (Matter of O’Brien v Keegan, 87 NY2d 436, 439-440 [1996]). Insofar as petitioner challenges a determination rendered following a hearing, this Court’s scope of review in handgun license cases only extends to whether substantial evidence supports the challenged determination (Matter of Abramowitz v Safir, 293 AD2d 352 [2002]), and our obligation is limited to insuring that respondent met “the very minimal evidentiary requirement necessary to uphold its determination” (see Matter of Scully v Safir, 282 AD2d 305, 308 [2001]). Despite various problems with the findings and conduct of the hearing officer, the record nevertheless contains sufficient evidence to meet this standard, and we are therefore compelled to confirm the license revocation.

    We recognize that the hearing officer’s report contained a fundamental misapprehension. With regard to the lawsuit initiated by petitioner and two other plaintiffs against the City of New York after a fire truck collided with petitioner’s car, there was insufficient support for the hearing officer’s conclusion that petitioner had brought a fraudulent action when he claimed that the other two individuals were in the car with him during the accident. First, this conclusion is contradicted by the District Attorney’s dismissal of the criminal charges, which dismissal called into question the underlying assertion that petitioner had lied when claiming that others were in the car with him at that time. Further, it was inappropriate for the hearing officer to conclude that that lawsuit was fraudulent based on the fact that petitioner withdrew it. No other evidentiary basis is offered to support the finding of fraud in the initial lawsuit.

    We further note with concern that on several occasions the hearing officer’s conduct toward petitioner was intemperate. [*2]

    Nevertheless, the record supports the finding that petitioner gave misleading testimony at the hearing regarding his employment as a security guard, and submitted to the investigator letters from two investigation services which were intentionally misleading. This fact, in itself, satisfies the minimal quantum of evidence necessary to establish a substantial basis upon which respondent could conclude that petitioner lacks the good moral character required for possession of a pistol permit, demonstrating good cause for the revocation of his Full Carry Business and Premises pistol license.

    Finally, while the IAS court incorrectly observed that petitioner had been found to have violated the rule requiring him to notify the division of his arrest, nevertheless its ultimate conclusion that the challenged determination was neither arbitrary and capricious, nor an abuse of discretion, was proper on this record.

    THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER
    OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.

    ENTERED: AUGUST 11, 2005

    CLERK

    Well, here it is. It certainly was misleading of Perlov’s lawyer not to mention that Perlov and his people’s allegedly fraudulent lawsuits were dismissed. Sounds like a plea bargain to me, and certainly indicative that there was, at a minimum, so merit to the lawsuits to start with. While we will now never know whether they were fraudulent or not, here’s a government agency’ finding, in writing, of this man’s dishonesty. Enough said.

    I bought a cell phone from him (ebay item\’s # 5815583736), and 2 days after the purchase he opened a non-payment alert (or something like that). after he received the money order he said he would ship the phone to me (it was in oct, 22nd) and i havent received the phone, contacted him, and he is being really rude. i live in brazil, i have all emails i sent to him, and all emails he sent to me. he is cold hearted, his emails never last 2 lines long. i asked him several information regarding the phone and the shipping method, asked for insurance and he didnt reply all of my concerns. he used to reply one of the several questions i used to ask.. i can prove everything! what should i do? do you guys have any advice for me? i can leave him a feedback untill february, 22nd.. do i leave a neg. one? or a neutral one? if i leave him a neg. feedback he will leave me one neg one for sure.

    Ok.. you can file a claim for it. Go to the information on filing a claim with ebay. My experience with him was almost exactly the same… and I was polite until he continued to be an *** to me. I filed a claim and won, even though all I wanted was similar product. As far as getting him off of ebay, I don\’t know that it will happen. NEVER buy from him again.
