I would like to report that Mr. Tommy Pham / Phuong Hoai Pham (Username: Kirinxo), has committed online fraud, and embezzled 800USD from a buyer in an online marketplace: https://www.epicnpc.com/threads/1289083-Refund-for-sale-of-game-account-(Mobius)

Please review the evidence above.

Mr. Pham currently resides in Humble, Texas.

We know the identity is that of Mr. Tommy Pham, because he gave his passport to the buyer.

Mr. Pham stated that he was in debt, and has avoided all means of contact
with the moderators and buyer after a dispute determined that he owed a refund.

Mr. Pham had promised to give the refund to the buyer via chat log, and the moderator ordered him to do so.

Instead of giving the refund, he decided to block the buyer, and chose to run away from the forum.

As a result, he was banned from the marketplace, and failed to reimburse the buyer. [continued below]....

.....

We have tried contacting Mr. Pham and his family, but all attempts have resulted in no response/blocking.

Please notify all parties involved/related to Mr. Pham.

We will attempt to file a police report within the next few weeks.

Thank you.

Below is the contact information of Tommy:

An Open Letter to Ms. Nguyen and her son, the scammer, Mr. Tommy Pham.

AUTHOR: Assistant - (United States)

Dear Pham Family,

It has been several months since the eldest son, Mr. Tommy Pham, scammed the victim of 800USD of his money. As a last resort, the victim and his friends posted the ripoff report against Tommy. While the report and its presence certainly is regrettable, and has made Mr. Pham’s life more challenging, it is inexcusable for him and his mother to run away from the victims, his friends, and law enforcement.

We can say that Tommy and his mother have been running away, as they were avoiding this issue despite the police reports made, and ignoring the evidence presented to them through the victim’s party. Other than the previously brief exchange with Ms. Nguyen, they have not attempted to contact the victim, nor present any evidence in their defence since this case was opened.

Ms. Nguyen and Mr. Pham have accused the victim of harming the scammer, by posting publicly available information online. We resent that notion, because our efforts were simply to report the facts, and make them known to the authorities. Mr. Pham’s identity has NOT been stolen because of us, nor have we posted any false information about him that was not sourced from legal repositories of information.

If Mr. Pham were to refund the victim, the victim will post an update to the ripoff report stating that the issue has been resolved, and nullify the report accordingly. Additionally, we will attempt to rescind the report by contacting the webmaster to suppress/modify the report in order to absolve Mr. Pham for any damages, other than the refund.

If not, the report will remain online as-is, and it will follow Tommy for the rest of his career. It may be forwarded to his future employers, if and when appropriate. The ball is now in Tommy’s court, to resolve this issue such that all of us can walk away peacefully. This will be the last update to this report, until Tommy issues a refund.

The mother claimed that it costs money to file a rebuttal on ripoffreport, when that is simply not true: ripoffreport.com/faq

Thank you.

Conversation with the Scammer's Mother

AUTHOR: Assistant - (United States)

dropbox.com/s/md15l5y0cfrd98p/messenger_hanh_nguyen_rp.pdf?dl=0

 

We recently had a Facebook conversation with the mother of the scammer, Ms. Hanh Nguyen.

(Please see the link above for that conversation)

This was only after we gave her a copy of our police report against her son.
We have tried contacting her for several months up to this point, but received no response until today.

The mother says that the address we have on file for the scammer, is an old address, and that she no longer lives there.

The mother claims to be filing a restraining order against the victim of this scam, and has contacted the Texas courts for assistance.
This is because she claims that the victim has been harassing the family.
We reject that notion, as the victim and his friends politely sought help from the family, as well as colleagues related to the family.

After we explained to the mother on the facts of the situation, on the fact that the victim spoke the truth and nothing but the truth,
and the fact that the police are on the side of truth, she blocked the victim and his friends on Facebook, and ended the conversation.


We have 4 questions for the mother:

1. Why did it take so long for her to come forward to speak with us, when we have done our very best to contact her and her family over several months?


2. How has the ripoff report damaged or harmed her family?


3. If she says that the son(scammer) did not run away, then why did the son avoid contact with us, and authorities, when we asked for him to kindly speak with us in a group dialog, with those participating in this case?

In fact, the son did nothing to talk to the victim, and blocked the victim, after he got banned from the marketplace.


4. In this ripoff report, what are the details that are inaccurate, or misrepresented?

If the details are accurate and are the truth, we cannot be sued, and cannot have a restraining order set against us in the pursuit of truth.

A lawyer was consulted with regards to this ripoff report, and as long as we are truthful, and not slanderous/libellous in any manner of representing information, the report is valid.

The ripoff report was deemed the proper venue to publish scams, and that information that is easily obtainable is legal to be published here.

We did not steal the scammer’s/mother’s identity, nor post false information.

The TRUTH is an ABSOLUTE defence to defamation:

Thank You.

Further Details

AUTHOR: Bobby - (France)

Unfortunately, a bank chargeback is not possible, as I paid through debit, not credit.

My friends and I have done our very best to contact him and his family via Facebook, his families' work office, and any close relatives to Mr. Pham. However, none of those contacted, have replied back to help.

I personally sought help from a colleague (who shall go by the pseudonym John) associated with one of his family's former businesses (they apparently changed owners, and no longer belong to his parents), and he tried helping draft a letter directed at Mr. Pham's parents.

This letter was delivered to Mr. Pham's house.

After delivering that letter, John told me Mr. Pham contacted him, and said that I was responsible for doxxing the scammer and ruining his life. I denied such allegations, as I kept the scammer's passport/home address private to myself and John. 

The only information that was shared with the public is that below:

The last I heard from John, was that he felt bad for the scammer, and that he would only help me one more time by filing a local police report in the state of Texas. I have not heard from him in a while, and in the end, he may not file the police report.

The entire situation feels hopeless. We have done our very best to try to resolve the situation peacefully over the past 2 weeks, but no one, except for John and my friends, have come forward to confront the scammer.

The info I have right now in my possession (available upon request):
- Scammer's passport
- Scammer's current school(s) of education
- Facebook profiles of the scammer's parents, siblings
- Telephone numbers that may belong to the scammer/his family
- Scammer's Instagram, Snapchat profiles
- Photos of the scammer as well as his family
- His home address, as well as past housing records
- Criminal background information of his family

Most of above information was available publicly, and posted by the scammer himself. The rest was given by the scammer during the transaction, and obtained via a legal reverse-phone lookup / background check.

What should I do, and is there anyone that can help?
