Re: Iphone - Blackberry - Ipod SCAMS

Dear all,

i am starting up an iPhone business in Brisbane and looking for suppliers.
I am suspicious about this advert I came across. However if it is legitimate, I can have a Business Plan in motion.

Ran Company Checks:\

I would really hope that some of experts here can clarify. That would be most appreciated.

Re: Iphone - Blackberry - Ipod SCAMS

first, stop. you don't know what you are doing.

apple makes and ships exactly the number of iphones they believe will sell at full price. they have no reason to discount them. nobody has real phones for sale at a discount.

now for this one:



SKYPE: sales.rep3

Call: +(44) 703-188-5667

Place Your Order Now!!!
phones that begin in 44 70 are using an international call forwarding service. (if there is a real business by that name, they have a different phone number) you will be connected to an anonymous man, who will pretend he has a business in england and offer to send you discounted phones as soon as you pay by western union.

there is no store, no business, your money is just gone. nobody can get your money back.

you want to sell apple? contact apple and ask how you can. otherwise, you will find a few fakes but mostly get nothing for your money.

RON RETANA - Used cars, electronic, iPhone scam

Everyone should read this thread above if you are thinking dealing with RON RETANA or any business related to Cars, used cars, investment companies or electronics goods. He is just an incredible liar, thief and scammer!

RON RETANA aka Rowland Retana is now in Costa Rica as he cannot stay in the US due to all the scams he made.... and he keeps doing it in Costa Rica scamming people with iPhones! I ve been stupid enough to believe him.

For those persons looking for him, I can help:

Well, I m dealing with that for my personal issue here in Costa Rica. He cannot disappear from me as he was used to do with others and my case is solved with interest. But I am not able to go much further after that.

I could see that lots of people had huge issues with him and the justice cannot do anything as he left USA for Costa Rica and do not have plans to come back. I will be glad to help as I will make his life Hell and I believe this dickhead should take consequences for his acts.

Here what I can provide:

-His real name and his 2 surmanes
-His phone numbers
-His exact address
-What kind of cars he drives + registration plates
-The 8 companies registered on the name of his dad + the 5 on the name of his brother Jefery. ...Ron doesn t have anything on his name...

-Contact details for those companies.

-An actual company in the USA! (maybe on the name of his dad)... Well, this one is a freebie as I am not in the USA:

It s named: "RyR Investment - 175 Olive street,San Bernardino - CA 92410-3665". I am not so sure about that one, but the probalitity is very high. This company was registered in Costa Rica and the name of it is similar to the ones his dad owned. There is only 2 companies having this name in the world. One in England (which is not related), and one in San Bernardino: It s just 20km west from Foothill Auto Body, in Rancho Cucamonga... place for which one Ron has been sentenced to $150.000 in March 2011 for scam I presume.

Iphone Scam - Nigerian and British

They masquerade with their UK based addresses and rip you off. Watch out for these guys and never send money via Western Union. Best is COD.

Sales Manager []

Name: Thomus Johnson
Zip Code: B18 6EW
Country: United Kingdom

And once you send the money to them for cheap Iphone, they will send another e-mail requesting for more money as now the phone is stuck in customs. Then their Nigerian address will show up as follows:

Name: Ray Spencer
Address: Plot 41 Olakunle Selese Crescent, Ajao Estate, Isolo, Lagos
Zip Code: 234
Country: Nigeria

Be forewarned!!
