Feedback for Justin's Headphone Modding (jschristian44) - Page 16

post #226 of 271

This whole thing is crazy.

I might have dodged a bullet a couple of weeks ago. This guy messaged me saying he wanted to trade his custom headphones for mine plus cash on my end. I said sure.

Then he changed some details which I wasn't okay with and told him the deal was off. He started getting pushy telling me how he needed the money asap to buy some other headphones. confused_face%281%29.gif

 

I always wondered what someone could do when this stuff happens besides charge-backs and disputes.

I also got scammed by Justin and waited past the 3 months to open a PayPal case. I thought I was being nice but he is a scammer. Anything I can do ?

You might have to get in line and wait until September when he returns from Alaska.  Apparently, it does not appear that his parents are going to do anything for the time being to resolve this.  Now, whether anything gets done in September is anyone's guess.  In an earlier thread, I did post links to the police department for the borough where he lives with his parents as well as the link to the FBI site for reporting Internet fraud.  It might be best to use those resources now, so that your information is at least recorded so that they're aware of him and his demeanor.  If people think a few hundred bucks is no big deal and just ignore this and move on, then nothing will get done and he'll never be held responsible for his actions.

 

If he thinks it was hard finding work before, just think of how much harder it will be when it comes time to filling out a job application and he gets to the point where they ask if he's ever been convicted of a crime?  I think he doesn't realize what kind of mess he has created.  Heck, even if the judge just slaps his wrist, it would still be a conviction --- something, he'd have to live with the rest of his life.

Is this still going on? Why dont you all get together in email on a chain and contact the police as a group of people. It will have a lot of effect and clearly his parents have no interest in sorting this out.

 

Actions speak louder than words. Get the police involved guys.
 

Why did his 'mother' get involved only to ignore everyone when it mattered?

 

Seriously though, enough talking about it in here, you need to all act together if you want to resolve this.

You know, I actually bought a pair of maple modified T20RP with beyer gels and a mogami cable. To be honest he was very trustworthy, had no problems letting me email or call him, and I actually paid  with a money order, of all things.

 

He had a listing  http://www.ebay.com/itm/251045723956?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1586.l2649#ht_500wt_975

 

I paid   http://cdn.head-fi.org/7/79/79da5937_2012-04-24_11-23-23_24.jpeg

 

They were delivered on time, https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction_input?origTrackNum=9121785091401685903960

 

I got what I asked for https://twitter.com/beowulfdemon/status/224595604838428672/photo/1/large

 

I took that picture a day ago to show some other people them. 

 

I don't think he was scamming people per-se, He told me he was headed to Alaska for the summer and he had it listed in his activities months before it actually caught anyone's eye. He simply needed to better gauge how many projects he could take on at once. I even had two very lengthy conversations with the guy. there's nothing illegal about paying for something with the foreknowledge that it wouldn't be until possibly the end of Summer. It's bad business, but it's not scamming. as for DACs and things, they are usually ordered in parts, and if you want anything less than 10K of that particular part, you have to wait for someone else to request it to actually get that part-- like mouser electronics, for example.   

 

Maybe he scammed you guys, but to me it looks like he basically bit off more than he could chew in terms of offering services to people.

I also had some good experience with Justin. I bought some tf10 just before he left to Alaska. He shipped them out to me and I received them. He even included some extras like a fiio e6
post #233 of 271

Only problem is he owes in excess of $1000 to people, but he just decided to take a nice trip to Alaska. Poor to no communication

and if he bit off more than he could chew, well, he should have the common sense and decency to contact customers, update them on the situation

and then....REFUND their money if that were their choice. Did any of that happen...no? I think it's fine if you 1 or 2 persons got what you paid for.

But for the rest of the people he outright scammed, no?

Did you personnally buy headphones from him?..and,

Loose money?

Is it being implied that because I didn't buy/loose money from him the point isn't valid?

 

No, I didn't buy headphones...and loose money. 

post #236 of 271

Didn't mean to imply that...

 

I took about a 50% loose on my pair of headphones,which looked like they were made by some high school student in wood working class.

I also,at one point,had to deposit money into his Paypal account so,he could buy the padding I wanted..a real joke..right from the very beginning..

 

I finally sold them on e-bay,after posting about 6 pictures,so the buyer could get an accurate picture of all the flaws,that were done ,when Justin stained the cups.

After ,my buyer got them,he e-mailed me saying.."they are great".

 

Thats that..end of story.

 

I haven't gone through this whole thread,

Did he really leave the country???

Anyone know??

I was just asking, no worries. 

 

Yea, you had a crappy experience, but you did go through with it and received a product. I don't think the problem is receiving a crappy product or even waiting a long time for a good 

product (Smeggy and the Thunderpants). It's the fact that people have been taken continually.

1. Luka Magnotta did not cut up and eat every person he knows.

2. Therefore, Luka Magnotta is not a murderer.

 

Does it even make sense?

It makes sense however we're considering this to be stealing, which is not an ultimatum like murder. Technically there are many people who steal and aren't considered criminals, like Obama, Romney, banks, ISPs, pirates, the list could go on. HE couldn't stop telling me how important it was to ship by X date because he was headed to Alaska. In spite of this there are still people here complaining and he was working on things for people months before me who still didn't receive their stuff.

 

It makes sense to say that he was finishing the easy jobs first before moving onto the harder ones. Quite frankly a lot of people don't believe in that, myself included, but we all have to remember that not all people are equal in the head and everyone sets their priorities differently. From MY experience with the law, if you opened up a case on something like this it might be February before you see a check, simply because the law system is slow in everything but catching people. So it's almost worth your time to just wait until September and see what happens.

 

Also, the nincompoop who banned him wasn't really fixing anything, that just makes it harder for everyone here to communicate with the guy, and effectively sealed him off from helping fix his end of the deal here with anyone. It would have made more sense to park his account/ip address and when he gets back, talk to an admin to get it unlocked for the purpose of closing all these deals. From my experience people are innocent until proven guilty in a court, and he's not back from Alaska yet, so the people who begged for his accounts to be banned while he was gone screwed over anyone else who was still waiting for confirmation/shipping/payment on his part.  

 

Unless the accounts simply ARE parked? (Which I doubt)

 

 Posting here in a place where he can't see it and he thinks he's off the hook doesn't solve anything. 

Also, if you sent it as a gift paypal isn't going to do anything, since by gifting you relinquish the website of all possible liability besides making sure he gets the money. Best strategy is to wait until September, and if he's back great! If he's not, it's a time to recover losses and move forward. I recall his "mother" saying that he, "had no money". Maybe it went towards are airline ticket to Alaska and enough funds to rent some place out while working at this hatchery. IMO working at a hatchery is nasty stuff, he probably didn't know what he was getting into with that either...

 

I couldn't see the stealing though, it would be childish, I mean look at the ebay rep? for that much rep, soldering stuff, etc. Someone in his family has to be loaded. My cans smelled like a punch corona cigar when I got them, and those aren't cheap.
