Last night at around 8:26pm, I received an SMS message from Jhon (the victim in the Puey Quinones Fashion Scam) that read "Hi michael ... We got already the sum of 195,000 in cash and we returned the suit and the gown. But Puey did not show up. Only his mom and his cousin ... That's all ... Thanks ...".
Puey charged Jhon and his fiance 150,000 Php for the wedding gown and the suit (Dansen). When they realized that Puey could not deliver, they panicked and sought help from Francis Libiran for a new wedding gown and suit. With less than two weeks before the wedding, Francis charged them 195,000 Php for the rush job. As compensation, they demanded that Puey should shoulder the additional 45,000 Php for the damages he caused. Jhon went on saying:
"Money cannot and will never replace the burden and emotional damages that Puey gave to our lives. Yun lang ... Anyways, it's all done ... The good news for us now is we received what is due to us. And I'm happy now that we don't have to argue or deal with Puey anymore."
I am glad that I was able to help Jhon using my Facebook and blog. After all, this is the reason why I started this blog. My fashion advocacy is to help clients who are clueless about the Pinoy world of fashion. I want clients to know whom they can trust and whom they can not.
Thank you Jhon for entrusting your story to me. I did not know you prior to the Fashion Scam story and now I feel close to you. Thank you for inviting me to your wedding on March 5. I will be there.
