*Consumer Comment: He tried to get me last year
This scammer will seem totally legit even when you do your due diligence. The reason - after each scam, he changes his name, phone number, the name of the store he's selling, etc. So whatever you research will come up clean. He targets entreprenurers looking for profitable online ventures by offering an online sex toy store that supposedly makes a profit of $4000 a month and has sales of $8000 to 9000 a month.
WHen you research the traffic coming in, it is real traffic. Real orders, real people. All from an AdWords campaign that, according to my contract, comes with the store when you purchase it. "Michael Trang" the store owner will transfer everything to you except this adwords account, until he is paid in full. And once paid in full, you will never hear from him again. He vanishes and moves on to the next one. Each store he sells uses the same front page photo of a scantily clad woman, and has a different domain and name because he has this same store duplicated numerous times for multiple sales of the store. (all scams) Without the adwords account, the store is worth nothing, as this is his traffic -- your sales. He has ZERO organic traffic to the sites, and the search engines do not recognize them.
Mr. Trang claims he is selling this profitable business because he just wants a lump sum of money to open an energy drink business. He also said his wife is in the US Airforce and is up for a promotion, and because the miliary is conservative, she doesn't want to be associated with an adult store any longer. He has told others that he is trying to open a restaurant.
And I'm sure he has other reasons why he would sell such a profitable venture for less than it makes in a month.
The seller appears more legit when he connects you with his drop shipper who is suppsedly on the other side of the country from where he supposedly is. "Claire Jackson from Atlanta, Georgia" will appear to be a real rep for Craigswholesale.com who will send you a form to fill out (with your SS# for "tax purposes") and then you will be good to go. No doubt, this dropshipper is all part of the elaborate scam. In fact, part of what the drop shipper may do is tell you that your SS# does not verify and they purposely send it back to you with one digit wrong.... this is part of the scam to make it look like they can actually verify you by it. Fortunately, I figured out the scam prior to submitting it and played along, sending them the wrong SS# from the start, so when I didn't get verified due to one digit being off, I returned it with the corrected wrong number.
They want you to wire them their money. Fortunately, i told them the only way I'd be willing to do the transaction was on paypal and with credit cards. If you wire the money, you will lose it and have no recourse.
They have many many domains. Pinkorb.com, Clubxtoys.com, pinkorb.com, justforyoutoys.com, jivevibe.com and the list goes on and on and on...
Same with their phones. Many of them... 707-394-7760, 916-243-7709, 707-605-7087 and more.
Same with their names. The ones I heard were Sam Phaisan, Gale Trang and Michael Trang as well as my "rep" Claire Jackson.
These people need to be stopped. Since I used paypal, I was told by paypal that they are listed with them as being in Omaha, Nebraska. Of course he told me what their internic "whois" listing for the domain said, that he was in Fairfield, CA. Another domain that I checked listed a different CA city.
