(1) Eugene Stewart or Gene Stewart
Gene Stewart contacted us in response to a forum message in www.satsig.net when we were looking for someone to supply an Internet Satellite feed. The conversation was as follows:
“Iain, I am a American living in Angeles City, Philippines. If you wish to contact me at 639093081280, call or text me. I can give you the information you need for the satellite internet in Cebu. Gene Stewart ”
When contacted, he offered me a system:
“Iain, The required satellite equipment is as follows:
1. 1.2 meter antenna
2. 2 watt BUC
4. Linksys Satellite Modem
Total Equipment Cost $1,595 Monthly bandwidth cost for 512 Kbps $199 If you want to use VoIP so you can have a telephone number in US, UK, wherever else for unlimited incoming and outgoing calls, with all custom calling features, you would need a router and a VoIP SIP telephone.
If you want to have mobility with the phone, I would suggest a wireless router and VoIP phone combo.Depending on the features, the prices can range from $75 to over $300 for the pair. As far as installation goes, you pay my airfare ( 3,688 pesos ) and hotel there in Bohol. Respectfully, Gene Stewart USA 1-970-373-0805 Philippines 63-929-477-1717″
It seemed reasonable for what was being delivered. At some point he seemed to try and get more money, luckily I didn’t go for it
“Iain, I forgot about the monthly cost for the 512 K Internet. As I told you it is $199 per month, however if you want to pre-pay for one year it would be reduced to $2,148 annually, which is a savings of $240. Your option: 1. Satellite equipment & 1 month Internet 2. Satellite equipment & One year Internet Respectfully, Gene Stewart USA 1-970-373-0805 Philippines 63-929-477-1717 ”
We arranged two dates, which both passed without any subsequent contact or follow up.
Several weeks later without any communication, Gene contacted us again.
I owe a personal apology to you. For the last two and a half weeks I have been out of touch with everybody. I had a personal health problem to deal with which was difficult for me.
Can I please reschedule your installation for April 15th. If you wish to cancel, I understand and will refund your money.
To which I replied, that I could not trust him anymore, and to please refund the money.
This friday I will send you $2,000 via Western Union. As soon as it is sent, I will text you the control number.
Needless to say no money ever got re-funded, and the Philippines NBI are now investigating for Gene for criminal charges.
