Anyone been ripped off by Adeoos?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered if anybody ever ordered a 3646 homage watch or case from Adeoos and were scammed? I've been waiting patiently for a couple of years, but he doesn't respond to any form of contact and I'd just like to find out if anyone else is in the same scenario? He's very well respected on 'risti, but I've been far from impressed with the contact I've had with him. Any comments / suggestions welcome!

R!

Sorry to hear that..I hope that in the end this deal it will turn OK for you..

Have you thought about posting a Q on 'risti so he (or some of his friends) could eventually reply to you..

I only know that I sent him e-mails and PM's (I believe here and other forums) but never got a reply from him..

good luck R with this deal

W, he was just in NY for that circle jerk risi thing, you missed your chance to throat-punch him.

I have no urge to punch him. I would simply like the 3646 case or my money back. But the truth is that I have since had a proper case made out of age appropriate steel and picked up a proper radium dial so I guess I would prefer my money back. Fat chance of that happening. I would put a lien on his house except he doesn't own one. :lol:

It does raise an interesting point though. Is it about time to make the appropriate post on Risti asking the same question RMC did here?

I'm willing to bet that if you post something like this on risti it will get removed. If I were you and couldn't get my money back straight up I'd ask him for amount owed in his straps but 30c on the dollar. Then flip the straps at 2x gradually.

I agree. But I may just reach out to him again for the heck of it. Hey, you never know.

LOL Mike, never knew that side of you! I don't know him personally, but in general, It disgusts me knowing that amongst the circle jerkers, that dude is frolicking in NYC on the loot he's made selling his over-priced straps and money he's scammed from others. It's a shame that 'Risti would shutdown any attempt to out one of their fraternity brothers for scamming people of their hard earned $$!

Nice idea, but when the person you're questioning can do no wrong, we'd be shot down in flames! I don't want to drag his name through the mud, just get what was promised from the outset or a refund. Lets see what happens!

A couple of years??? WTF are you waiting for, pigs to fly? :bangin:

Do you have a receipt? PayPal, CC, something to show him to jog his memory?

Send him an email; from a different email address, maybe you're in his junk folder somehow.

In the end, I think it's been way too long to start this up again unless you have proof, and with the long time period past, I wouldn't say all the fault lies with him.

The project was to create a 1:1 3646 case, and the agreement at the time (which many 'ristis bought into) was that it would take a good few months to build the project. He's getting my emails as he occasionally responds with a meaningless excuse. The deal was a trade, I won't go into details - but this is where it becomes complicated. I have an email trail as proof, but he's quite clever to use phone / instant messenger for any statements that are commital - in hindsight, it looks like his formal communication has been carefully used to ensure he can scam people and get away with it. I guess it just goes to show that you shouldn't trust anyone regardless of how well respected they are in certain communities.

We all have long email histories with him so he is getting the emails. He strings everyone along. As you say he is just too beloved at Risti as everyone wants his straps. Heck the last time he went broke a Thai risti took him in and let him set up shop in Thailand to sell straps to Asian customers.

Look on risti - the Kevin/BigB Ammo strap. He used to be in a joint venture with Brad at watches24seven before they parted ways. He was getting $300 for his straps new.

Many of gen owners and members of Paneristi.com are reading this forum.

Unfortunately they're quiet and don't post much on either Gen or Rep forums, so don't expect much support from them if you decide to have a go at Kevin on Paneristi.

The guy has some shady business practice, that's for sure.

I've deal with him before, terrible experience. Never ever reply email until I told him I need to file a complaint to Paypal....It took almost four months to order a strap!
