And finally, as this issue went to press on the eve of the Safari Club International Convention, there was still no word on where to find George Sevich of Eurasian Expeditions. You'll recall that Sevich fell off the hunting community's radar about eight month's ago after reportedly experiencing a personal crisis. Numerous clients were left without word on hunts they had booked and trophies they had not received. The amount of outstanding payments to Sevich that we know of equals almost $200,000. We have tried repeatedly to contact Sevich through sources we heard could get a line to him. But no one has ever gotten back to us.
To date, we have comments from 22 hunters who posted information on a forum we posted to our web site. The purpose of the forum, which is still active, is to give affected hunters a place to network on the matter and/or possibly pursue collective action. One of the hunters who originally contacted us has tried filing charges of fraud with his state's attorney general, but was told they could not help him since they could not find Sevich either.
If anyone knows where to find George Sevich, please contact us at 305-670-1918. We'll be happy to keep you anonymous.
