Okay, I brought what i thought were two pairs of nike airforce 1's off , they arrived and were very, very fake.

Also cost me $187.00 so i'm not too happy. I'm also only 15 and brought these as a present for someone. It may not seem like a lot of money to a lot of you, but to me it is. i don't have a job as i have school and such to worry about and it took me 4 weeks to save this money. was meant to be a special present >_<

I'm new to this forum, found it by google searching 'yi fang' to see what i could find about the man responsible for this site, google gave me links to: and

It made me realize that this man hasn't only done this with shoes, also done with GHD's and iPhones and through reading these forums, it seems he's also linked to a few other websites.

I've emailed him and said i will go to the police this friday if i do not get a full refund (gives him 3 days to put money through which i think is decent)

I know now that i can't do much but i want to warn other people about his scams and to see if anyone else has had the problems with the shoes and if they have got refunds >_<

It would be great if anyone could help me ;D

The text was copied from an external source into the text box here... probably need to strip all formatting.

The IStore scam was pretty big issue here too. I could have definitely imagined more people getting into these kinds of tricks.

Find me on Twitter!

hmm can't believe he managed to suck so many people in and still hasn't been caught, insane.
has anyone else had the problem with the shoes on here?
and has anyone got any solutions?i've made documents on everything i can find about him, not sure if i could give to police though or if they would be able to use any of it.i've also emailed fair go.
got a reply from yi, he just told me my order had been posted and was being shipped.
anyone in wellington keen to try the address for him? lol >_<or did anyone ripped off with ghd's or iPhones ever go to the properties that were linked to him?
thanks for help ;D
