******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SITE. IT IS POSSIBLY A SPOOF SITE SET UP FOR PHISHING.




There seems to be a guy bouncing around the forums, claiming he got a set of HIDs from this site, http://www.O-NEX.com. He is trying to lure people into going into this site, and sending HIM money. I have matched the "company's" email up to the one he signed up with here on the site. He is also using the site info from one of our trusted GB members around here, Uneek. He is claiming to be featured here, on the RD site, as well as a few other sites. If any of you are members on these sites, as I am not, please pass this info out so no members get scammed.


Here are some more places I found him trying to sell his "HID's" online.

http://www.o-nex.com/


ChevyHHR.net
Cobaltss.net
ElantraXd.com
Scionlife.com
Hyundaiperformance.com
SemaShow.com

If anybody can let these sites staff know about the situation, please do. I cannot access the sites. Here is more info as well:

IP Addy: 24.205.85.254

Username: his username usually seems to be the name of the site, followed by a 2. Example=newtiburon2

Re: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

His screen name was Newtiburon2. He has been banned, and so far I have warned members over on the RD tib site as well. If any of you are members of the following sites, please let a mod know so they can post it up as well. These are sites he is supposedly "featured" on:

ChevyHHR.net
Cobaltss.net
ElantraXd.com
Scionlife.com
Hyundaiperformance.com
SemaShow.com

Re: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

Just sent this message to the host of that site, bravenet.com:

This website seems to be a solid business website selling high-intensity-discharge lights for automobiles. He has been directing people to this site from the web forum newtiburon.com, and has also been trying to sell the "kits" elsewere, such as craigslist. He has been found by newtiburon.com to be a scammer/phisher, and we would like the site pulled down immediately. here is the "warning" thread on newtiburon.com: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

and here's another place he's trying to sell the products which don't exist:
http://miami.craigslist.org/pts/281540716.html

He has also spread the scam to other autos forums including the following:

ChevyHHR.net
Cobaltss.net
ElantraXd.com
Scionlife.com
Hyundaiperformance.com
SemaShow.com

He poses as a person just letting people know about the cheap HID kits he found, but administrators of newtiburon.com have confirmed that the e-mail address he used to sign up is the same as the paypal payment address for "o-nex.com".

Please take the actions necessary.

Thank you,
Paul McCain.

Re: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

I'm in the desert, so I can't. Please feel free and let him know that the game is up. Scare the crap outta him and tell him governent officials (me) are working on the issue.

Liek I said, he is using Uneeks addy, site format, pictures, and everything. It is DEFINATELY not a legitimate business, or else he would have his own domain email, and not a gmail attached to paypal.

Re: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

Man answered the phone, I told him I'd like to enquire about his HID lights, he told me the price and where to send my money, paypal account listed. I asked for some customer ref's as i have heard some rumors about this, informed him i am a member of a few forems and one of our admins has government officials looking into this, as well as they have contacted his site host to verify some details. He promptly told me to go **** myself and mind my own ****ing buisness, all i said is, i guess i can't get my HID's from you? and he hung up......

Well that answered my question...

Re: ******BEWARE****** Scamming Hid Seller********

I'm not the scammer. What is happening is some guy set up a website called o-nex.com and is trying to pass it off as my website. Which it is not.

I happen to live just 5 minutes from the address he posted on that website. So i am going to contact the Pasadena Police department to see what they can do.

Uneek is probably one of the best sellers on this site, and will vouch for him in a heartbeat.

Damn it, looks like he is signing up on all the sites I sell on. Just found him on scionlife.com

Just emailed some of the moderators on scionlife. Hope they can put a stop to this guy before he rips somebody off.
