Well that guy tahts been "supposedly" ripping ppl off w/ the mugen exhaust stuff, just ripped me off.

I sent him $200 + $75 Shipping for JDM Fogs (plus wiring and everything) from australia about 1 month ago. He says he shipped the 3 weeks ago. He hasn't been returning my emails, and finally today I got a package, and I thought that he actually came thru on the deal.

But, i was wondering why the package was so light, and it turns out it was just clear bumper turn signals, WTF!!!

But pisses me off at first, was I was worried about fraud in the beginning. But assured me that he was legit, i.e. said that he was using his company email address. Man, i came believe i jsut got ripped off. Can some1 give me some advice on how i can get my money back or what i should do, Thanks.

Bloody Hell, it just goes to show...I've been reading posts by this guy on Sho for as far as I've been a member there and he seemed OK, just a little eccentric.
I'm so sorry this has happened to you but no way could you have seen it coming. Cheok seemed so legit.
Last post I read of his he was planning on buying an S2000....
Why don't you contact the Australian Police in his locality? Try it, see what happens.

I have contacted his company, www.i-mail.com.au , about this issue. I am worried taht they won't get the email because he is the administrator of the website, i think? This is his email address: Noel Cheok
i-Mail Communications ®
[email protected]

I also contacted paypal, but i dont know if they can do anything about it either because it is an international payment: "At this time, we are unable to offer additional protections for transactions with our International members." Im just waiting for a reply to see what both of them can do.

I know there are also other ppl that have been frauded by him. I feel worse for them since they bought the mugen exhaust + headers. Thats a lot more money. I knew i should have listened to my friend and just spend $100 more and bought the JDM fogs from James, www.performance-evolution.com !!!

Why don't you contact the 'Steve Hasani' mentioned at the bottom of the 'Corporate' details on the Site?
I'm quite sure he would be very interested to hear that Cheok is using the business to pursue fraudulent behavior.

damn, that really sucks, sorry to hear that.

But you guys should know better. The prices for these parts isn't as marked up as you'd think. especially when you deal w/ james and similar ppl.

For example, type s cams cost about $400 over there, but once you pay the man that got you the cams (jap), ship them, and then pay the man that got you the cams (u.s.) you get to about $580. thats howmuch i paid for mine, and he didn't make much off of it.

sucks...i wish there was a way to get stuff cheaper, but if it's too cheap, then it must be too good to be true. WHen it is that cheap, someones losing money, and who wants to lose out on money? no one, unless that is, it's stolen.

once again, sorry to hear about that, hope you get your $ back. bastards...

I know you're not trying to flame but really,'should' is a very easy word.There are plenty of things we all 'should' have done but unless you've got time travel it's an empty word and isn't going to make TcT118 feel any better.
Life is so easy in retospect.

I agree...

keep screwing with this guy in as many ways as you possibly can... like e-mail his job, posting about his scam, e-mail the hell out of him, ruin his reputation online, etc.

people who do this crap really are a piece of work.

that m*therf*ch*r!!!
i guess it is official! this guy is a fraud.
i actually paid the guy and a day after i found out that he was selling mugen stuff to more than one person. then i email him. it took a couple days for him to respond. then i start threatening him about charging back to my visa then to paypal and that paypal would go after him. then he offers to give my money back, but i say "no, ship my stuff within 24hrs and give me a track number or else give me my money back". he says he can't do that. he's got to wait for paypal to clear to his bank. (which is stupid b/c once you pay someone with paypal, the money is their's. nothing you can do about it) so finally i demanded my money back. and guess what? the b*tch gave me my money back.

i was damn lucky.

but anyways, i am sorry to hear about your incident. this guy seemed totally legit. he seriously would have had 99% of you fooled too.

TcT118, you are not: [email protected] as well are you? if not email him. he's in the same position as you.

start emailing every address on that web site about this incident. it will eventually get around and he will be caught!

I thought the price was normal ($200), since it was used JDM Fogs for 1 year. He was selling the stuff off his Type S, since he got a S2000. He was also selling his mugen exhaust and headers, and i think a vtec controller, and other stuff.

It seemed really legit to me. The only thing that was fishy was taht it was $75 for australia post shipping, but he said it was heavy, since the fogs were made of glass.

I already emailed his company, paypal, and posted this on purehonda, and will post on SHO. I have been in contact w/ another guy, cementups, who also got ripped off from him in this thread:
http://honda-acura.net/forum/Forum20/HTML/006815.html

Man!! that was my chinese new years money + my gf's valentines gift money. W/ that money i could have had a the Apex'i V-AFC right now. Yea, this is a real lesson to be learn, don't trust any1, not even the ppl that seem trushworthy. Guess its time to save up more money...=(

mr_lude2000 - No thats not me. Man you're lucky! Hes been ignoring my emails after he said he has shipped then.

He also gave me the excuse that he won't ship til he gets his payment from paypal to his bank. After 1 week after i had paid him via paypal, then he finally supposedly shipped the fogs. This is after i told him that there has been rumors about him being a fraud and that he trust me that he'll get the money, since i trusted him by sending him the money.

Yea, i'll email that other guy that got screwed too...man i wish he would refund my money back too.

I remember that bloody wanker posting on SHO to sell the mugen parts. I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. My friend Jaymee Ong lives in australia so I'll give her a call and ask her to notify all honda enthusiast to keep an eye out for this "cheok" person. Good luck, and I hope you get your money back.
