Just for the record,

hyuksnose:

Hyonami here on tumblr is legit. I bought Hyuk’s “Hyde” photocard from her and she sent it quickly (I think within 2 days?) and it was packaged extremely well. She was also extremely nice and quick with communication.

Not all of us sellers can ship out super fast all the time. Some of us (like me) have to often share cars with others and only have so much time to stop at the post office on a given week. I waited about 10 days for a lovely seller to ship out starcards to me because I understand that people my age have other things to take care of (like school, final exams are coming up for a lot of us!) And if you’re a seller you know that just because the money paid for the shipping fee is in our paypal account, it doesn’t mean we have instant access to it. We either have to ship with pocket money or transfer it into bank accounts (which takes 2-5 days depending on a bank.)

Life happens and when you deal with anybody when buying anything you know these things happen sometimes. I understand the number of scammers has increased lately but good sellers shouldn’t have their names dragged through the mud just because a buyer is impatient.

This.

I oftentimes have to scrounge for cash in order to send things to people because money in my Paypal is NOT useable at the post office! If I don’t have the cash to send something, I have to beg someone to let me borrow some or transfer the funds into my account, which actually doesn’t always work. I try my hardest to make sure to stay within communication with everyone. I also can only get a ride to the post office twice a week, so unless it’s something I can send from home, it may take some time for me to send it out. A buyer’s patience is always extremely appreciated.

SCAMMER REPORT: Becky Chiong — aka Ashley Jones/Victoria Schuster, Acid Tfyh, Tom Diaz

addictedtoyouleesungmin:

April 21, 2014
**ALL PICTURES INCLUDED IN THIS POST CAN BE SENT TO YOU IN THEIR ORIGINAL, HIGH-RESOLUTION FORMAT UPON REQUEST. IT’S JUST EASIER FOR ME TO UPLOAD THEM DIRECTLY FROM MY PC RATHER THAN EMBED THEM VIA HTML.  SOME NAMES HAVE BEEN BLACKED OUT AT THE INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED REQUEST.**

For the month of April it seems someone has been hacking old Facebook accounts and impersonating legitimate sellers: stealing photoproofs and pictures of sellers’ collections and trying to pass these cards as their own, and make money off of them.  This person has hacked accounts with tons of different names, but I will use one name to refer to them by through the last part of this post: Becky Chiong.

ASHLEY JONES/VICTORIA SCHUSTER — victoria0812@outlook.com

In early April, around April 5, 2014, “Ashley Jones" (FB username: lanesha.forever) began joining Facebook groups for selling and trading photocards, with several pictures of Super Junior cards posted, including many rare ones, and claimed that they had “finished their collection” and were now going to sell them off.  Here is a screenshot of some of the pictures they uploaded to their Facebook.

image

Some pictures had a photoshopped note in the corner that read “Ashley Jones,” as she was trying to pass these pictures off as hers.  

BUT THEY ARE NOT HER PICTURES.

Ashley Jones claimed to be CheekyFlower from the website deviantART.  Now, here’s where things start to NOT add up.  Ashley Jones claims to be from Florida, United States.  I personally know CheekyFlower @ dA, and she is from the United Kingdom; she and I have been friends for nearly 3 years.  We talk everyday and she is even coming to visit me in mid-May.  If you visit CheekyFlower’s deviantART page (cheekyflower.deviantart.com), you will see that she looks nothing like Ashley Jones on Facebook.

Ashley Jones asked her buyers to send their PayPal payments via Friends/Family to email address victoria0812@outlook.com. The name on that PayPal account was “Victoria Schuster"  

On April 8, 2014, the moderators and I at the Photocard Forum received a message from an individual that had been scammed.  This individual (@meeltje2951) included ALL SORTS of information about Ashley Jones.  She was the first person to alert us of this situation.

image

I went on Facebook and took TONS of screenshots of Ashley’s post just in case she tried to delete them (can be given to you upon request).  I also joined groups and attempted to inform buyers that they had been scammed; that this individual was not CheekyFlower, and did not own these cards or the pictures she was using.  She, however, blocked me and deleted my comments.

Ashley Jones also uploaded some videos from an individual on YouTube, who was then alerted by someone who recognized their video on Ashley’s page.  This individual told me that they were going to post a video on their channel explaining the situation. **IF I FIND THAT VIDEO, I WILL LINK IT HERE WITH THE OWNER’S PERMISSION.

After several messages to buyers and admins of photocard trading/selling/buying groups, Ashley Jones was ousted, and most buyers contacted PayPal to get their money back. Word was that Ashley Jones “apologized” for what she did, and refunded the money to some upon request.

I suspect that this Facebook was hacked.  Because the last posts were from February 2014, and December 2013 respectfully, and had absolutely nothing to do with Kpop or photocards.  After all the buyers were informed, I hoped that this situation was over with.

I was wrong.

09MION & BECKY CHIONG — becky.chiong@outlook.com

On April 14, 2014, “09mion" joined our Photocard Forum.  They were selling all sorts of cards from SNSD to EXO to Super Junior. They were also selling the rare Super Junior Opera ELF Japan cards for a very pretty penny. **I would link a post, but once we were alerted that they were a scammer, all posts were deleted.**  Their email they used to register on the forum was becky.chiong@outlook.com, and several of “their” photoproofs included the “Becky Chiong.

An individual on the forum saw the cards and contacted “09mion” through tumblr, which they had linked to the account (they linked both 09mion.tumblr.com and 09mion’s YouTube channel).  It turns out that the REAL 09mion had never made an account on the Photocard Forum, and only operated on YouTube and Tumblr.

image

I contacted the real 09mion for more information to see if they knew the person that could possibly be impersonating them.  They responded to me that this “Becky Chiong” who was using their pictures was actually supposed to be a BUYER.  Becky Chiong had contacted them before about purchasing a HUGE lot of cards. The real 09mion took nearly 40 pictures and emailed them to Becky as photoproof, but then never heard back.  This was how Becky Chiong had gotten a hold of the photoproofs she was using on the Photocard Forum, and it explains why her name was on them as well as 09mion’s name.

I later googled Becky’s email, becky.chiong@outlook.com, which led me to her Facebook: FB username: becky.chiong77. She had posted many of the real 09mion’s pictures on there claiming she was selling the cards and to message her about them (all posts have since been deleted from the timeline, and I unfortunately do not have any screenshots of them).

Here is a post the real 09mion wrote explaining the situation with Becky Chiong: (x).  

It has since been edited, since she did include a blurb before about who Becky was, and how she was appalled someone would try to impersonate her.  On April 15, 2014, she updated the post with an explanation saying she had spoken to Becky Chiong, who agreed to take down her posts and apologized for her behavior.

I later received reports that Becky Chiong had NOT taken down any posts in the any of the groups she was in, but had removed them (or hidden them from me) on her timeline.

Here is the message 09mion sent me about the situation after we “resolved” it: (x).

You’ll find out next WHY I put “resolved” in quotation marks.

ACID TFYH & MYKPOPCOLLECTION — becky.chiong@outlook.com / mykpopcollection@outlook.com / itom@fbi.al

On April 20, 2014, I received an ask on here about a Facebook user, “Acid Tfyh." (FB username: acid.tfyh) **The person who sent me the ask asked to be kept anonymous, so their username has been removed.  

image

They claimed that this Acid Tfyh was mykpopcollection here on tumblr (and also on the Photocard Forum).  I’ve never heard of mykpopcollection being active anywhere but tumblr (they had a few posts on the Photocard Forum, but those have all been removed and they have not logged on in nearly 4 months there).  It’s been confirmed that Acid Tfyh is using mykpopcollection’s pictures in Facebook groups to sell the cards pictured in them.

They said that there have been numerous complaints about them (Acid) scamming people out of money.  I asked them to please email me with any and all screenshots and evidence they have against this Acid Tfyh.

It turns out that Ashley Jones ADDED this Acid Tfyh to a photocard group, and Acid proceeded to post this in the group after she was added, defending Becky Chiong against the scammers claims she had against her:

image

This individual then sent me many screenshot of the proof she had of claims of scamming against this Acid Tfyh.

This is a screenshot of this person’s conversation with a co-admin of a Facebook Photocard Group.

**AGAIN, AS PER THEIR REQUEST, SOME NAMES HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THESE SCREENSHOTS.

image

Here is a screenshot of a conversation between a co-admin of a group, and an individual that claims Acid Tfyh scammed them.

image

image

Notice here that Acid Tfyh asked “N” to have all payments sent to becky.choing@outlook.com.  Acid then claimed that there was a “problem” with her PayPal, and refunded the money.  She then proceeded to ask this person to send the money to a new email: itom@fbi.alAfter payment was sent, all communication stopped.

Another individual contacted the person who contacted me with more problems concerning Acid Tfyh.

image

image

"F" also expressed concern, and noted that Acid asked payments to be sent to becky.chiong@outlook.com first before they changed to a new email address for payments.  

SO IT SEEMS THAT ACID TFYH AND BECKY CHIONG ARE CONNECTED SOMEHOW. Some people think that they’re friends, but I think they’re the same person.  AND I THINK BECKY CHIONG MAY ALSO BE BEHIND ASHLEY JONES’ ACCOUNT. Because the wording for some posts are the same.  Such as she always says “Until next transaction!” in her posts — both Ashley Jones and Acid Tfyh did this. 

Further examination of Acid Tfyh’s Facebook shows that the last posts before April 2014 were in July 2013.  So I believe that this account was hacked as well, just like Ashley Jones’ account was.  Because the previous posts have nothing to do with Kpop or photocards.  This is another reason I believe that Becky Chiong was behind Ashley Jones as well.

BOTH accounts start posting about Kpop around the same time in April: April 5, 2014.  (Both accounts are also linked to “yoville”…whatever that is….sounds like something to avoid since two hacked accounts are linked to it!)

And I’m not the only one. This screenshot arrived to me today.

Someone else (the same “F” as above) also believes that Becky Chiong was behind all of these hacked Facebooks, and all of the scamming attempts listed in this post.

Notice that a third email for Acid Tfyh has appeared: mykpopcollection@outlook.com.  An individual from the Photocard Forum also told me and another admin today that she was scammed by Acid Tfyh about two weeks ago, and Acid asked payments to be sent to mykpopcollection@outlook.com.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: THE REAL MYKPOPCOLLECTION DOES HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS SIMILAR TO THAT, BUT IT IS A GMAIL ADDRESS (mykpopcollection@gmail.com). THE OUTLOOK ADDRESS DOES NOT BELONG TO THE REAL MYKPOPCOLLECTION.  MYKPOPCOLLECTION ON TUMBLR IS A LEGITIMATE SELLER WITH MANY SATISFIED BUYERS. I HAVE ONLY RECEIVED ONE OFF COMPLAINT ABOUT THEM ABOUT AN ITEM BEING RETURNED AND NEVER RECEIVED AND I AM CURRENTLY TALKING TO THAT BUYER ABOUT THE SITUATION.

TOM DIAZ — ??

It seems there’s another account out there connected to Becky Chiong. i am waiting for more information on that account and how it could be connected to these other ones.

It seems that Becky Chiong has hacked old, possibly-abandoned/not-recently-updated Facebook accounts, and tried to impersonate legit sellers (CheekyFlower @ dA/cheekyflower & happykpop-photocards; 09mion; mykpopcollection).  She likes to take photos that they have posted, or photoproofs they post in sale/trade posts, and try to pass them off as her own.

ANY SELLER THAT BECKY CHIONG HAS IMPERSONATED ARE LEGITIMATE SELLERS. BECKY IS TRYING TO USE THEIR FEEDBACK AS A MEANS TO SCAM OTHERS, AND HAVE THESE LEGIT SELLERS PAY THE CONSEQUENCES.

—Acid Tfyh asked buyers to send payments to becky.chiong@outlook.com before suddenly changing email accounts to itom@fbi.al and mykpopcollection@outlook.com.

CONCLUSIONS: 
—I believe that Becky Chiong is behind all of these accounts, as all of them seem to point back to her/have her in common with one another.

BUYERS NEED TO ALWAYS BE CAUTIOUS WHEN DEALING WITH SELLERS ON THE INTERNET. 

IF YOU EVER AT ANY POINT DURING THE TRANSACTION SUSPECT SOMETHING IS WRONG, CANCEL THE TRANSACTION, AND DO NOT CONTINUE TO DO BUSINESS WITH THE SUSPICIOUS INDIVIDUAL. 

ALWAYS SEND PAYMENTS VIA PAYPAL AS GOODS/SERVICES. THIS INSURES THAT YOU HAVE 45 DAYS OF BUYER PROTECTION IN CASE YOU ARE EVER A VICTIM OF A PHOTOCARD SCAMMER.
