The saga of Jensen Dinh of 5214 E Nicholas Place, Scottsdale, Arizona continues. Is that his real name or could he have a couple more up his sleeve? The name on his NAWCC badge is Phong and he signs cheques under the name Fong. This fiend, trading under the eBay name of jd_km20 and also buying under the moniker 720phd, occupies one of the Top Ten Public Enemy slots in the category of Horological Delinquency. Sorry about the unflattering picture, but it's the best one I have of him!
Apart from his forays into fake Omega cases, building Franken Patik Philippes and fake Blancpain 50 Fathoms, he also turns a good Rolex trick.
I received this reply to an earlier post from Paul and I think it deserves a post of its own.
"I have been reading your observations on Mr Jensen Dinhs ebay listings with interest, and following his items listed. His front is something else!
Clearly by his recent listings he is making up parts to convert valjoux 72 cal movements to fit rolex daytona cases (which he is also having made) and creating manual wind daytonas.
Amazes me that he has the front and greed to offer out component parts he has made up such as dial, rolex signed bridges etc. Surely would be enough to be ripping people off to the tune of 15,000 usd on made up daytonas.
Can only wonder where he is offering out the complete watchs. I also note with interest he is selling off genuine rolex cases minus their movements for case numbers such such as 1501. It is of note these cases would have had 1570 calibre movements, generic to more desirable models. I wonder what case their original movements ended up in?
Would hazard a guess at explorer 2 with orange hand or sub. I also see he has a patek case and dial only (polished) on ebay, which bears a striking resemblance to the case on the patek watch he recently sold on ebay and featured on frankenwatchs. Could it be those chinese case makers only do job lots?! Cheers Paul"
