    Alexander Leonio Scams fake nike at Ebay

    Bided at ebay on an item claimed to be authentic. Item Significantly Not As Described: Lacoste Thrill Sz 10 Mens Shoes Green / White (#7746875154) Payment Method: Bank to Bank Wire Transfer Payment Date: Mar-07-2006 Additional Details: item not at all authentic. you can buy same item in Greenhills (PLACE KNOWN FOR SELLING KNOCK-OFF COPIES OF FAMOUS BRANDS)for a significantly lower price or PHP950- US$18), without having to pay for the ghastly over priced delivery (was charged US$50 for a local registered mail worth less than PHP 15- about US$3). I had bidded on the item since the seller had stated that it was "authentic". If you considered the charge of the shipping and the description, you will definitely see FRAUD here.

    Tried to get in touch with Mr.Alexander Leonio aka “nmachiaveli” through email and through his "contact seller" at Ebay- he ignored it. Went through the whole process of mediation at Ebay. Ended up being called a "liar" as he called all who called his product a fake.

    Filed appropriate report at FTC, FBI IC3, Interpol, and Ebay.

    But Ebay continues to allow him to trade rip-off items through their facility! I believe that Ebay must also be held liable since on the oset of getting bad feedbacks for this person they (Ebay) should have cut-off his account to prevent future victims.

    His other Ebay account is badminton_blue. You may check the items he had sold -mostly rubber shoes and compare the way it was presented in both accounts.

    Latest bad news, Ebay allowed him ot keep the comments against him private. Ebay seems to be protecting him than his victims!

    However I was able to extract some of the negative feedbacks through google:

    Mr. Alexander Leonio has also presented a series of positive feedbacks, but when samples, here are the results of the difference on how he presented it and what is actually written at Ebay feedback:

    According to Alexander Leonio:

    According to Alex Leonio:
    Buyer muscat0502( 157Feedback score is 100 to 499) Apr-22-06 19:07 7747645265 Apr-23-06 18:34
    Positive feedback rating Excellent seller.Super fast delivery.Highly recommended.Thanks a lot.

    The REAL feedback at Ebay:
    Reply by muscat0502: i sent you the manager's check but no reply to my email!

    Hmmmmm. Sounds like Alexander Leonio is caught lying again. This time he even supplied the samples on how he can fudge the truth!

    Here are the other negative feedbacks he had as badminton-blue:

    Buyer jerrycollins69 ( -1 ) May-29-06 22:59 9723844631 Reply by jerrycollins69: I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING REQUIRED BY EBAYHE SOLD ME JUNK WASTED MY TIME AND MONEY!
    NEVER DEAL WITH THIS PERSON ITEM IS GARBAGE AND HE IS A FRAUD BE WARE!!! F- JUNK
    Buyer jerrycollins69 ( -1 ) May-29-06 07:01 9723844631 Follow-up by jerrycollins69: THIS EBAYER FULL OF IT! THE PRODUCTS HE SELLS ARE CRAP NOTHING BUT A HEADACHE!!!



    More than 5 negative feedbacks all claiming one and the same- THEY HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED by ALEXANDER LEONIO aka NMACHIAVELI they were sold FAKE rubber shoes. Isn't that a red flag?

    He had posted several defamatory and libelous blogs at craiglist and scam101. Even using a nom de guerre as "jennifermla" (Alexander, you had a sex change?)

    Attempts have been made by him to connect me to other ebayers-"information given by Ebay) aka as jerrycollins69 aka lordrowel_06" are totally FALSE. Now with all 5 plus my follow-up feedback proves once and for all that Mr. (or Ms?) Alexander Leonio is the TRUE scammer!

    Most companies who feel strongly about the integrity of their product will offer a refund instead of going all through this. Guess you knew deep inside you that what you had sold was FAKE!


    Ebay and other websites should protect us, the victims from bottom dweller like you. People like you who give false claims of "authenticity". People like you who fabricate lies just because you can't handle the truth.

    People should be warned against dealing with Alexander Leonio who peddles lies and pretends it's the truth!

    With the multiple identities he has created at craiglist, ebay and others, he defends himself and pretends to be others. He is also seem so confused also confused that he forgets the subject matter on hand aside from his gender (he called himself "jennifermla" at one time)

    Again check out through Google his handle "nmachiaveli". read over the negative feedback that he tries to hide. Again, even with a zillion of positive feedbacks (of which I suspect, he may has created on his own, will not over come the 5 out of 5 negative feedbacks whch all claims what he was peddling at Ebay were fakes!

    BTW, he claims to be in San Bruno, California and yet is a registered user in Australia and some of the blog inputs registered himself in Manila on the same instance! His rebuttal is an attack against himself!

    Update:

    Asdie from jennifermla (he had a sex change?) now, mike 832 (were they able to sew it back on?) he loves to create new accounts to scam others with his fake products!

    nmachiaveli is presently inactive in ebay! Wonder why? Suspended? Banned?

    Re: Alexander Leonio Scams fake nike at Ebay

    Richard Yapco made untruthful statements about a person, Alexander Leonio, and had them published in writing through broadcast media. The conflict began when the defamer, Richard Yapco, purchased a pair of authentic Lacoste shoes from an auction Alexander Leonio had on eBay. When Richard Yapco changed his mind and asked for a refund, Alexander Leonio denied his request because nowhere on his eBay listing did it say that refunds or exchanges were accepted. So when Richard Yapco demanded a different style, his request was again denied. Alexander Leonio had one pair of authentic Lacoste shoes from California to list on eBay, that's it. When Alexander Leonio took a stand and denied his demands, that's when Richard Yapco started to falsely claim that they were fake. Richard Yapco is a malicious scam artist trying to injure a person's reputation and standing in the community. Because libel is a tort (a civil wrong), Alexander Leonio has brought a lawsuit against Richard Yapco, who made the false statements. The bottom line is defamatory speech distributed over the Internet will result in civil liability for the defamer.

    The following are present in this case to establish defamation:

    1. A defamatory statement (or material) or imputation;
    2. The statement (or material) identifies the plaintiff; and
    3. The statement (or material) is published to a third person, i.e. at least one person other than the plaintiff.

    Unfortunately, the defamatory statements made by Richard Yapco have already been published to at least one website. Once a person views the material that has been uploaded, sent or posted on the Internet, that material is regarded as having been published. Republication is also a recognized form of publication. Accordingly, taking defamatory material, copying and distributing it will result in a defamation claim against the original writer of the material as well as the persons who copied and distributed it. The truth is Alexander Leonio has been very professional and polite in trying to resolve this matter. Unfortunately, it was not possible to do so amicably with a con artist like Richard Yapco.

    The online auction site eBay gives the option for members to make their feedback comments private to help remedy situations like this where retaliatory and defamatory feedbacks were received from dishonest eBayers like Richard Yapco. He won't list the other 50 positive feedbacks received from honest eBayers because that would ruin his credibility. These are malicious individuals who either chose not to issue payment or demanded a different item after winning an auction in which all sales are final. The bottom line is it's unacceptable to change your mind after winning an eBay auction because it is a legally binding contract. Richard Yapco is not fooling anyone. He came across fake Lacoste replicas at his local market, and would rather keep those instead of the authentic pair he won.

    The non-paying bidders either have an overall negative feedback score or are no longer registered users. The negative feedback they left were simply retaliatory and defamatory. Alexander Leonio has never sold a single fake or misrepresented item. That is the truth, and the evidence will speak for itself! All items from his collection were purchased in the USA over a period of several years.

    The real con artist here is Richard Yapco. It's unfortunate that scammers from overseas can register themselves inside the USA with fake information, which he did with a couple screen names. This scam artist not only fabricates his stories, but will also try to ruin your overall feedback score. He is connected to at least two other eBay accounts with overall negative feedback scores (jerrycollins69 aka lordrowel_06 aka brucemla). This past year has been the worst for scams. Buyer beware has now been replaced with seller beware. If your high bidder writes to you claiming to be from the USA, but wants the item shipped elsewhere that should raise a red flag.

    Here's some of the feedback defamer Richard Yapco failed to take the liberty of getting. The following comments belong to nmachiaveli aka badminton_blue.

    Too much time has been wasted on con artists like Richard Yapco. The final objective of this post is to make sure others will not fall for his scams.

    Lesson learned, Internet sites like craigslist and eBay need to do more to protect honest users from scam artists like Richard Yapco (information given by eBay) aka jerrycollins69 aka lordrowel_06 aka brucemla. As previously stated, if your high bidder or buyer writes to you claiming to be from the USA, but wants the item shipped elsewhere that should raise a red flag. Do NOT accept overpayments from scam artists like Richard Yapco for items where the buyer is asking to be reimbursed for overpayment. These scammers can come up with a million excuses so if you receive such offers, please report it immediately.

    *Update*

    Please be advised at least two other victims of Richard Yapco, jennifermla and mike832, have had similar experiences with this scammer. Please beware of various scams on eBay and craigslist.

    Re: Alexander Leonio Scams fake nike at Ebay

    eBay is a relatively safe marketplace. Unfortunately,
    like most online marketplaces, it is vulnerable to
    scams. eBay tries to keep instances of scams
    occurring, but with more than 100 million members,
    and approximately $40 million moving through the
    site on a daily basis, this can be a little difficult.
    Sometimes, scams occur.

    If you have been scammed, there are certain steps
    you need to follow to report the incident, and to try
    to come to a resolution. If you paid for the item
    through Paypal, the first step is to login to your
    Paypal account and open up a dispute for the
    payment. If you did not pay through Paypal, contact
    your credit card company. In most cases, if you have
    used one of these two cases, you will recover your
    money.

    The next step is to use eBays dispute process to
    report the seller. This is specifically for items that
    were not received, or items that were significantly
    different than what was described in the auction.
    eBay also has a purchase protection program to
    further protect buyers. If a settlement cannot be
    reached with the buyer, the next step is to make
    an eBay buyer purchase protection claim.
