You seem to know some Indonesian languange too, seeing how you actually saw through that abbreviation of Gg..



Of course... I'm Indonesian.

I knew there was something fishy about that guy, I didn't lose money, but now I feel really bad that dealt with him.

Thanks for the heads up, Mike.

Please keep us updated everyone.

And for the scammer that is a member here, please post a link to his feedback thread. And DO leave feedback for those involved.

Best of luck in getting a satisfactory resolution.

-Ed

Same here, but I didnt lose any money. I felt the same way, I saved all my PM messages from him from when I purchased some Ety's from him. If the PM's can aid some how I can forward them, they include his shipping address and stuff (Wait some, it was already posted) .


When I received the package from him, he put the buyer as me. Can I possibly be in trouble? Should I call Etymotic?

I have his full name and address if that helps:

Ierly Hadiwinata
JL. Guru Mughni Gg Buntu 21
Kuningan 21 Residence #109
Jakarta, 12940
INDONESIA

I traded him some old pcdps for supposedly an ER-6i, so thankfully I didn't lose too much. I was suspicious at first, but he had a good amount of feedback from some reputable head-fiers. Oh well.




I got this from him...

For the import fee alone, I think you'll have to sell the Ety's.



No because he would buy the cans direct from Etymotic and Ety would ship em to you. He put the buyer as the person who bought them from him though. (Well thats what he did to me)

Count me as owned too. I traded my E3c to him for ER4P and I have received nothing. And now I haven't heard from him in days. He first told me that he would send the Etys then he said he was having a problem and wouldn't say why. I assumed by his feedback that he was ok. Then he asked if I wanted Super.fi5pro instead. And now I haven't heard from him.

I was duped as well. And I checked with people on 1312ly's feedback before I bought. The response I got from other Headfi people who bought ETY's from him was all positive. They got their new ETY's(mainly ER 4p) directly from ETYMOTIC with no problem.

1312ly presented himself as an overseas reseller of ETYMOTIC. As such, he pointed to his ability to send new ETY's to users in the US shipped directly from the ETYMOTIC factory.
