TPC’s most notorious scammer

Posted by tpcscammers on February 4, 2011

I’ve been recently victimized by this person using www.tipidpc.com (TPC), an IT community-based trading website.

 

 

THE MODUS OPERANDI
He will post a computer item/peripheral lower than any other items currently posted. Of course you are going to be interested because of the lowest price he is offering.

When you contact him to buy his items, he will then ask for your contact number thru sending message in TPC and call you where to meet, he don’t have a contact number, he will just call you and contact you online. I wasn’t aware that he is already on TPC forums with similar case/s and his pictures were being circulated on the forum and maybe on emails.

We were able to meet and able to finalize transaction. He seems nice naman.

He told me he is working in a small company where they buy defective computers sold by companies in Metro Manila as is, and then they dismantle the items like hard disk, motherboard, memory cards, etc, and then sell it when they find it working.

The first transaction was OK. The items I bought were working and without any defect. Eto pala ay parang patikim para kagatin mo yung style niya.

Later on that day, he sent a message telling me he got another item and if I would be interested. I said Ok because he really gives the lowest price.

This time the items are defective. Same case with his firsts victims. This is a clear estafa case.

THE SCAMMER
See the above photo, and here it is again.

He stands around 5’3”, payat, and dark complexion. What he told me his name is probably not his real name. He may have told different names to other victims.

If you have a large version of his photo, please post it here or send it to me or give me the URL.

AN INVITATION TO OTHER VICTIMS
I would like to invite the other victims to let us meet and talk about filing a formal charge to NBI Anti-Fraud and Computer Crimes Division so this person will no longer be able to scam other TPC members or other people out there.

We can discuss and schedule the date where we can meet on NBI to file the charges.

Please post your messages here and information about this person.

TPC Scammer

Here’s a bigger version of his photo posted on one of the forums on TPC.

Read his modus operandi here.

For the same cases posted on TPC forums posted by his victims, go to:

http://tipidpc.com/forums.php

and seach for the forum topics “scammer” and “beware” then you will find results about his modus operandi.
