Details

Purchase date:November 2010
Buyer's name:Joseph Wang
Buyer's username:hwl2001us
E-mail:knowledgenation@gmail.com
Buyer's address1420 N Claremont Blvd Ste 203B Claremont, CA 91711-3528 United State
Store:eBAY
Buyer's country:United States
Payment method:PayPal
Category:Books
Details:

I had a textbook listed on eBay. The item was a university specific edition of the book, which I noted in my auction. The individual bid on and won the book, and then proceeded to send a detailed list of how he wanted the book shipped, which I would have agreed to do if he had asked before bidding no problem, as I could have factored the extra cost into an invoice. As it was, I was already peeved.

He also included in the message, "If this is an international, teacher's manual, or other nonstandard edition, please refund my money and do not send the book. It will only cause trouble for both of us." Seeing this, I messaged him back, saying "I mentioned in the auction that this was a Drexel University edition of the book. I saw that you do not not want any nonstandard editions. Let me know if you did not intend to buy this edition, and I will refund your money." He never responded to this message, so after 5 days with no response, I shipped the book.

When he received the book, he opened an "item significantly not as described" case against me because the book was a nonstandard edition. I escalated the case to a claim, however when neither the buyer or PayPal responded quickly did not want to wait weeks for PayPal to release the hold on my money so I refunded him the amount minus my initial extra shipping costs, and closed the case. I never received the book back.

He sells books, and probably made money reselling this one he essentially got for free. He has all positive feedback, but his feedback details are private, and since you cannot give negative feedback to a buyer I feel as though he is hiding something by making his feedback comments private, so I wouldn't doubt that others have had similar issues with their transactions with him.

Wow This basterd just bought my book for 50 cents more than the other guy and he has not paid for it yet! Damn ass hole

OMG....This guy just bought a book from me for 99 cents and then has this list of instructions in the order details. He also tells me that if the book is not as described, to refund his money or there would be problems down the road or whatever. I sent him a note saying he was a nightmare buyer that I wished to avoid. I'm supposed to send him his book in the mail tomorrow. I'm not. I'm going to refund his money. He's a jerk. I'd rather give this huge Smithsonian Animal book to a needy school than let this person get it. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

He won the bid on two of my books and still hasn't paid yet. Have you all left him negative feedback?


Posted over 10 years ago by 128.196.X.X Report as SPAM

Just had the same thing happen to me! I dosn't want me to ship the book in a "ready ship" bubble mailer but didn't request a invoice for more expensive shipping so to bad for him.

Yes, same happened to me...

OMG, I got suspicious of this dude when he sent me a note in broken English with same demands as everyone else listed. The broken English is fine, but the book he bought from me is a medical book someone would need to have better command over the English language to use. On a hunch I googled his address and found this. The problem is now that he just initiated payment and I have no idea how to intercept it. If anyone is out there, I am welcoming advice!

I'm getting multiple buys from Suite 204B, from an LL Wang, but with different buyer names. Glad I saw this as I will be careful about this one. Through Amazon rather than eBay, though.


Posted almost 10 years ago by 75.6.X.X Report as SPAM

I am also a book seller. When LL Wang from Ste 204B purchased three copies of the same book (different transactions) over a period of 12 hours, I became suspicious. Thankfully I stumbled across this thread -- I'm cancelling all of these orders now and informing my parent company of this fraudulent address. Thanks, everyone!

Wow. This guy just ordered a book of mine on Amazon. I was excited at first, but the shipping address seemed a little fishy. Glad I looked into it. Thanks for the feedback and saving me a headache. I will cancel the order immediately.

I believe this person also sells under the username learning91711 on Ebay with private feedback. I just had a Joseph Wang (different mailing address) purchase a textbook from me wth the note saying if the ISBN doesn't match the book listed he doesn't want it. I wanted to confirm that this was the book he wanted before sending it, but he doesn't reply so I canceled the transaction. I hope this doesn't cause me problems with Ebay for a lousy $9.00 item!

The jerk ordered three books from me on Amazon. Apparently he automatically sends a "did not receive" message after the time frame elapses. I have delivery confirmation, though. Hope this doesn't cause me problems with Amazon!

I sent a text to him too. Just got a Didn't not get book from him too.
This is a federal offence being mail fraud. Something has to be done about it.

I am so made about this.

Hello all! I really need everyones help!

I sold a book to LL Wang on May 19th and now, over 70 days later he is claiming that he did not recieve the book. Please, please, please contact amazon and tell them about your experiences with this seller. I really need some evidence so he does not manage to steal both my book and almost 50 bucks from me.
I am a graduate student with no job, struggling to eat. PLEASE CONTACT AMAZON TODAY AND TELL THEM THAT HOW HE HAS TRIED TO LIE ABOUT RECIEVING BOOKS. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!


Posted over 9 years ago by 50.136.X.X Report as SPAM

I just received the same message on amazon. Mark the message as suspicious. If he's sent out a ton on amazon maybe marking it as suspicious will put up a red flag to amazon.


Posted over 9 years ago by 76.105.X.X Report as SPAM

I just called amazon and if he doesn't take the proper procedures(not just a message) to request a refund then we( the sellers) do not have to refund him. So don't just click refund order because you're afraid of your feedback after you have received the message.
Also, the suite # he gave me (204 B) doesn't even seem to exist!
If he does happen to file a claim against us as sellers on amazon then that process can be lengthy and result in an automatic refund from our account to his, but it will be based on a review of performance by both parties. Saying that, be sure to document everything.

LL Wang just ordered from me on Amazon. Actually Joan Hodanori ordered the book and shipped to LL Wang at Claremont. Joan filed a clain saying the book was water damaged and not as described therefore unacceptable. I told her the send the book back and if it was in the same condition that I shipped it, there would be a full refund. If it wasn't, there would be a restock fee to be determined by the condition of the book.

Found this link while searching LL Wangs supposed address.
I received an email from this person today THREE months after I shipped my book to him. He's asking for a refund saying he never received it. I contacted amazon and they said all they could do was open a ticket against him, but it could take a while. I'm wondering who we could contact seeing as he is not only stealing our products but also robbing is of our money.

Be sure to contact amazon and report the email as suspicious. I'm guessing he sent out a mass email to us poor unsuspecting sellers!

Under the name "z imakawa," he bought a book from me on Amazon, which I sent on August 21st. I just got an email from him (over a month later), and he is claiming that he did not receive the book. Because his address is strange (first line reads: LL Wang-Box: T26-04) I googled and found this site. I just reported him to Amazon. It was just a $9 item (coincidence that someone else here said they sold him a $9 item?).

3 months later LL Wang after buying a law textbook from me on Amazon he is saying he didn't receive the item. The name he goes by this time is : Geodo Yoshiki at the same address everyone is posting. Just reported his email as suspicious and opening a claim against him. What a little P.O.S.!

I just had the same experience with this buyer. He purchased a book in July and just now sent me a did not receive email. After an email to two, he said he would begin an amazon A-Z guarantee claim. I just sent a report to the postal inspectors office and attached this site. Hopefully that works.


Posted over 9 years ago by 108.0.X.X Report as SPAM

Wow, this goes to show that searching out your buyers is helpful.

He bought a book from me that had been water-damaged, which I indicated in the description clearly. Thinking he might have been a very confused older individual unfamiliar with the fact that each used product has its own independent description, I refunded it and asked him to return the book.

Big mistake! That was over a month ago and, of course, he never returned the book. In addition, there is no real way to take back that refund.

Luckily I live in Claremont, CA, six months of the year so I will simply pay him a visit with law enforcement when I get back soon.


Posted about 9 years ago by 24.163.X.X Report as SPAM

The same thing happened to me today. This time under the name "C Crorolt" but the same address. He said he never received the book 2 months after I shipped it out along with 3 other books that all made it to their destination on time. Glad I found this site. I informed him he was mistaken and advised him to recheck his inventory. If he tries to contact me again I will file a claim with the post office as this is mail fraud, a federal offense. Thanks to whoever started this site; it has been super helpful and will probably save me a couple bucks and some heartache :).

Just reported this "Z Imakawa" to Amazon this past week. Showed them this website & they investigated & found no fraud. Told me to refund him the money! I called back & said to look again! Meanwhile I contacted my post office, who confirmed the book was indeed delivered (as I had suspected). What a fraud this guy is!

Well, I am dealing the exact same issue with a resident from identical address, only except 204B instead of 203B. And I was thinking to take a legal action against this person. Now I learn that I am not the only victim and there are several of us! One thing I can guarantee that I will win is, I did take note in my textbook and I have the identical hand writing just like the ones in the book he has now. Just for a suggestion, perhaps, fighting against this dude with all of us would be very much victorious. He has to pay for our attorney feel, any additional legal fee and regard for our emotional stress that occurred by this incidence. I am more like to be fall for getting more money for what I suffered from an immoral person and prevent further victims like us.

Order a Used Graduate History Textbook of mine listed on Amazon in Good Condition for $15.00 + 3.99 for Shipping, I have not shipped it yet. I put in an email to Seller Support as the Phone Support is not available after 6PM Pacific. I will call them Friday AM and ask them if I should cancel this order? I realize my account gets dinged for this but I prefer this then being out the money. I am a Retired Adjunct History Professor who is now on Disability, I can't afford to ship this and then have this happen.

I thought Amazon had protections and that after 30 days a Buyer can't due this??

Nice scam Amazon.com aids in.
Mr. Wang purchases books and resells them. Amazon.com steal money from honest customers and gives it to Mr. Wang. Mr. Wang gets a book to resell plus additional money.

It's very likely Amazon has done this 1000s of times to their honest customers. I wonder of a lawyer would file a class action suite. Would the law require Amazon to open their books?
It is just amazing to me how Amazon thinks supporting such people is good for there practice. This needs media attention.


Posted over 8 years ago by 173.245.X.X Report as SPAM

It is likely that this is a scam by an Amazon employee. With today's technology how can they not see this pattern by this buyer and continue to support him. If I'm an employee of Amazon and I work in the A-to-Z department how easy would it be to have several friends continually buy textbooks and I would be able to fix it that the claim always went in their favor. Then resell the textbooks at a 100% plus profit.

We need to start posting links to this page on social media and see if we can find more people this has happened to. How many people have Amazon stole from. Joseph Wang did not steal from me. He is everything people here have called him but Amazon stole from me. If I were Mr. Wang's first victom it wouldn't be on him. But when I am his 15th, 150th, 1,500th or who knows then it is on Amazon.

This guy is asking for a refund on a book that I shipped over three months ago, claiming that he never received it. Bullshit claim, but there's little I can do about it because the item was sent media mail.


Posted over 8 years ago by 108.162.X.X Report as SPAM

Same thing happened to me. I sent the book about two months ago and now he sends an email saying he never received it and wants a refund. I contacted Amazon.com and they seemed disinterested. Amazon did say however that refunds do not need to be made after 30 days have elapsed. I then made a claim through the USPS. I cannot believe this scam has been going on for two years and nothing has been done about it. I'm posting this page on FaceBook, hopefully it will gain even more attention.

I just had a different scam with LWang on amazon. The buyers name was g gons, but shipping to this Claremont address. After 2 months, they mailed the book back claiming it was "materially different" than originally listed. The book wasn't even what I sent them, an expensive Math book. They sent me back an Annotated version of the Student's edition I sent them. I felt I had to refund their order because of the threatening message of negative feedback and A-Z claim. No emails to communicate with them was returned. I looked back at my refunds in the last year and found they had ordered under 5 different names, and all had some kind of credit applied. I am reporting to amazon today to see if there is anything they can do to block this address from buying.

Sorry to spam this website, the previous entries were mine and the website kept freezing when submitting my comment. That said, I wanted to mention specifically that this buyer used the name "cottsbk" on Amazon when purchasing my textbook.

Similar. Bought one of my books on Amazon. The address was so crazy that I looked it up. This is how I came across a couple websites with complains about him. I sent the book with tracking and signature. 2 1/2 month later, he wrote to me claiming that he never received the book and demanded a full refund. (The A-Z Amazon Warranty gives him 90 days.)

Amazon Sellers Beware! Buyer name varies. This person also goes by L-Wang, and M Kawasaji. Same address, 1420 N. Claremont Blvd. Ste 200A. My first run in with this guy he claimed I did not deliver what promised. Luckily, I had him return the book first, then I refunded. I only lost the shipping. Unfortunately I did not know of this website. Late May, I sold another book to a different buyer, now I realize it was to the same address. Now (after summer sessions are over), he just emailed saying he never received the book, which according to tracking was delivered in four days after I mailed it.

I just sold a textbook on Amazon to this same guy! Luckily I googled the address as it appears many others have done since it seemed so unusual. Buyer name was "cottsbk" and ship to name was L Wang- Box: Z13-02. Address 1420 N. Claremont Blvd 200A. After reading all of this, I decided to cancel the order and report the buyer to Amazon. Judging by the other posts on this thread, Amazon hasn't done anything about it as this guy has been doing this for the last 3-4 years. Unfortunately for them, this is my first selling experience on Amazon and I'm not impressed. I will be selling my books elsewhere from now on.

The address, 1420 N Claremont Blvd, is a Fedex Drop Box. A lot of small businesses use this address. I listed a book on Amazon for 1/10th of what everyone else was selling (from $150 to $300) and he snapped it up right away. When 10, 20, or even 30 people are selling the same book for that high if a price, they may be drop shippers or just idiots with don't understand supply and demand. Needless to say, I cancelled the order because of comments made here! Don't want the hassle for a $15 item.

Thank you for having this page and comment section. I just today received an order from this person. After hassles with other scammers, I am requiring sig. confirmation and am also taking photos of the book I am sending (as Amazon suggested to me after another person said he recieved a book not as described) I am also going to video take the flipping through of pages so if this happens to me as well, I will be ready.

He ordered a book from me through Amazon, then claimed he never received it about three months later and asked for a refund.

I put in a trouble ticket with the United States Postal Service (USPS). They didn't respond for a few days, so I just gave the refund.

Two days later, I received a voicemail from USPS. They didn't have much information, but apparently this address receives a large volume of mail. So much mail that they don't track each arrival separately, they track them together in something called a "firm book".

I don't know what actually happened to the book, but my guess is that he just wanted to make it free and figured I would give the refund without question.

He was right, but at least now I know about this site, and I know to question addresses like this in the future.

Thanks, everybody.

So grateful I found this website. It seems Joseph Wang ordered 4 books from me using different names. The first line is always some variation of L WANG-Box: H30-01 while the actual address is 1420 N CLAREMONT BLVD STE 200A CLAREMONT, CA 91711-3528. The names he used was Kelly Tsai, Z Imakawa, and C Crocodile. The other order I cancelled. By no means am I a conspiracy theorist, but how he is able to continue ripping off sellers 4-5 years using amazon's supposedly advanced technology befuddles me. He should have been shut down long ago using same address and all the complaints we sellers have reported to amazon about him. Maybe it is an inside job from a group of amazon employees.

L WANG-Box: J11-A1
1420 N CLAREMONT BLVD STE 200A
CLAREMONT, CA 91711-3528

Name: w wanami

It appears this guy changes his name, referencing the post above me, the address and name is slightly different, with Box: J12-A1 instead of J11-A1, and name "w wakamoto" instead of "w wanami".

If you see anything resembling the address, save your book, money, time, etc. on other things. There is a special place in hell for people like this. College is already expensive.. it's not fair for them to steal a books that I bought, especially on a limited budget :(

Has ordered from us twice (in 6 months) and have had no problems with this customer. Most likely this is a drop shipper that picks up titles cheap and resells them.

FRAUDULENT BUYER!! Purchases a new book from us on Amazon and then claims it's damaged? We asked for pictures and they sent pictures of a different book. We tried to explain that that was a different book but he did not reply. Then he opened an AZ claim and left negative feedback. Of course we had to pay him because Amazon almost always sides with the buyer. Then he tries to order from us again! We cancel his order and he tries again but changes the buyer name. (same address). We can cancel again. He did this 6 times in 5 days! BEWARE OF THIS SCAMMING FRAUDULENT BUYER!

He's still at it this year. I just had the exact same experience on Amazon. He ordered a text book from me. He got it and claimed it was in terrible condition. Told me I have to refund him full payment and shipping. I told him I was surprised b/c it was in very good condition but if he sends the book back, in the same condition I sent it to him, I"ll refund him. That was 3 weeks ago. I still haven't received the book. I reported him to Amazon and they would only say to watch out for the A-Z claim. I am not giving this guy any money.

I just contact Amazon Seller Customer Service twice (the 1st time the guy was like refund money ok) and the 2nd time I called the girl look at the email was like that is suspicious considering he bought it in May and is now claiming he didn't receive. http://123bowlinggames.com/bowling-games-arcade.html

The broken English is fine, but the book he bought from me is a medical book someone would need to have better command over the English language to use. On a hunch I googled his address and found this. The problem is now that he just initiated payment and I have no idea how to intercept it. If anyone is out there, I am welcoming advice! https://123gamesfree.com/games-free-mac-2/

Part 1/3:
If you are robbed by this POS, don't let him get away with it.
He incorporated a company therefore his real legal details are attached to it.
His real name is Lin His Wang.

His first company was called Learning Universe, Inc. This is now inactive.
https://www.corporationwiki.com/California/Claremont/learning-universe-inc/44976111.aspx

His new company, created in 2013, is called Jwvc Cpas, A Professional Corporation. It looks like this is an accounting firm (he is a CPA now) where he works/worked with one other person. Maybe he was pulling this scam while attending university, scamming textbooks on the side.

2/3:
He has stolen thousands if not millions through postal fraud and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Who knows how many people he tries this on, given the comments I have read on this page I suspect he does it with every purchase. This is why he sometimes emails the sellers asking for a refund instead of opening a case - he is trying his luck whilst avoiding detection and getting his accounts flagged.

Even if you can't report him to authorities, report him here and maybe someone in California will eventually go for him. The evidence you provide in this thread could help bring him to justice.

Known associates of this lowlife, immoral criminal include:
Tuan Chung, who was also listed as a president of Learning Universe, Inc
Victoria Cheng, who is also listed as a president of Jwvc.

Addresses associated with Jwvc Cpas, A Professional Corporation:
(Please note these may not be Lin's own addresses, they are just associated with the company. They are publicly available information so I decided to include them so that if they are indeed used for the scams, victims will be able to find this page.)

This man now works as a CPA under the new company he has formed jwvccpa, and goes by the name Joseph Wang-Lin. He should be in jail. Hopefully one day karma catches up to him.

This is his linkedin page
https://linkedin.com/in/joseph-wang-lin-cpa-1523579a?trk=org-employees_mini-profile_title

If CPA requires ethics, he fails and should have his license revoked

His Linkedin Page indicates he is not a young student who was doing this on the side, he started his Bachelors Degree in 1991 so he's maybe around 40-50 years old.

A 50 year old scamming college students, what a lowlife.

Education:
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Master of Science (M.S.), Accounting
2000 – 2001
National Chengchi University
Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), Accounting and Business/Management
1991 – 1995

If you are scammed by this person, it will be most helpful if you include a way you can be contacted in your message. That way, if a case is ever going to be launched against him you can help. (Since anonymous comments on the internet probably don't do much from a legal standpoint)

I'm not sure the best way to do this, but maybe your username on the website he scammed you? Or an email address you're not too fond of (in case bots pick it up and spam it)? Or just your name and city? These aren't great solutions I know, if you have a better one please comment!
