Puey Quinones Paid Fashion Scam Victims 195,000 Php in Cash!


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.

  3. At least the designer did his part to give back the money and paid damages as well. I think it would be better if he was there during the returning of money, para sincere di ba?
    I feel bad kasi may iba pa siyang bride clients na linoko at pinerahan lang niya...

  10. My cousin's wedding last Nov. also encountered a few horror stories from PQ's services and my mom (who knows pattern-making and sewing) and aunts really wondered how he became "popular" among young soon-to-wed couples when in fact the quality of the output does not seem to reflect the price, and hype for this designer. Too bad for him.

  13. Ey Mike, you are doing what most people want to do but dont have the guts too, due to their situation be that they may be involved in the fashion or television industry or what not. People who try to scam good people should be marked off and if they get caught they should shouldnt act all innocent and give excuses. cheers to you! and keep it subtle but informative ;)

  14. Puey Quinones wrecked my life. He stole my life savings, my businesses, my house, everything he said was a lie. Now I have no pension and am unable to pay for medical treatment. He is the most evil person on this earth.

  17. Trashy design with matching poor quality execution then hyped by feeling authority na press, then tangang mga client na nagpapadala sa popularity ng designer na di muna icheck ang background, kaya ayan ang resulta! Scam ang pera nyo....
