    1. Ooooh and I bet he sleeps so well at night at the comfort of your 100k.

    2. Anong tinatago? Dati pa siya gumawa ng scandal. I dont think necessary pa to hear his side. He has done this before nga.

      Delete
    3. He was embroiled in an embarassing controversy years before this current incident. Di pa rin sya nagbago.

    4. Regardless sa motibo sa pag tulong, passion, good heart or for greener pastures, dapat lang na suklian ng tamang asal. Nakakagigil yang P na yan.

    5. To think he was featured in a magazine sa PAL, saying na nagbago na sya and is living a new life in the US. Ang tanong: bakit sya na admit sa US na ang dami nyang kaso dito?

  2. Honestly, why would he invest all his money to someone with a shady reputation? Was it solely out of compassion? Puey was never a "huge hit" in Manila to begin with. Wonder why the nurse wasted his money on Puey. Tsk!

    2. Out of compassion lang ba talaga?

    3. Whatever the real reason behind helping, that'snnone of your business. Na-scam pa din siya and he didn't deserve it. You people, sheesh.

    4. Feelings nga daw diba. E di yun na yun.

    5. Malaking shunga din. May vested interest yan siyempre kaya nag-invest.

    6. How can Ben fall in love with that kind of person... Ben is gorgeous while he isn’t. Ben is kind hearted while he isn’t. Ben is such an artist... all he wanted is to help such a talent. wrong person to help Ben!!! If that p has some decency... and that now p is earning after networking from you... at least he should pay Ben’s money back.
      P stands for p@@ck

    7. Out of passion.

    8. Yes inwss asking the question! Parang wala naman tao magsusugal ng lahat ng savings sa isa pang tao na walang pagibig, sorry you had to learn the hard way, kaya mext time huwag invest lahat! Hay mga tao talaga dami manloloko

      Delete
    9. 1:43, pareho tayo ng naisip.

      kung purely business yan, pwede niya idemanda. pwede yan kasuhan dito sa amerika ng fraudulent business dealings. pwede rin niya ipasilip ang immigration status at kung nagbabayad ng tamang income tax yung apparel business nung “nanloko at nagnakaw” sa kanya. kung meron brand name na “Quin Inc” meron dapat tax id # yan. kung siya yung sole financier nung clothing business, for sure may mga resibo siya. kung gusto niya mabawi yung investment niya, mag konsulta siya sa tax lawyer and/or business lawyer at immigration lawyer bago mag file ng tamang kaso...

      eh kaso lang kasi na in love yan at ngayon break na sila kaya ganyan ang hanash ni mang ben.

      Delete
    10. Yan din question.. Bakit ka magiinvest to think as per him dami na nagwarned sa kanya about puey's reputation.. Malang inlababo nga siguro si nurse

      Delete
  3. Love you Ben! Omg si puey di na nagbago. His time will come and it’ll bite him hard.....

  4. If that is true then you should really check on the history lalo na when it comes to money

  5. you said it yourself...a scammer will always be a scammer

  6. May nagtitiwala pa rin dyan, after all ng ginawa nyan. Huh!

    1. Here's the 411: Yung re-tagging scandal ni Puey is the first ever post ni FP dito. I think this issue made him come up with this blog. O dba, FP ever since the world began ang peg natin!? Lol

      Delete
  9. I remembered an FP blogpost years back about this Puey Quiñones. A couple ordered a custom made design from him for their wedding. The bride’s dress was okay, I think, but to their horror, the suit they ordered for the groom was just a department store brand about 3,000 pesos but they paid ten times for the retagged PQ suit.

    Good thing talaga we have FP so we can steer clear from these kinds of people.

    2. Yas! I still remember that post, so juicy. His audacity to use an rtw clothing. Kakaloka!

      I wonder why he invested in someone with that big of an issue. Hard earned lesson learned for him.

    3. Gosh tagal ko na pa lang reader ng FP? 1st na nabasa ko rito is about the couple na nagpa abort sa SG.

      Tsaka uso pa nun yung “first!” Haha
      Love you FP since 2011 ❤️

  10. Masama nga siguro ugali nung Puey pero ikaw na nagsabj na marami nag warn sayo na friends. Ganyan talaga investment minsan malulugi minsan kikita ka. Wala naman namilit sayo mag invest ng $100k plus sa totoo kasalanan mo din na nagtiwala ka if ever man scammer yan like ng inaakusa mo.

    1. 1:44 you are just like so many people. You tend to blame the victim rather than the one who caused trouble. Shame.

      Delete
    2. 10:44, common sense lang naman ang sinabi ni 1:44 and the realities of investing in businesses. Ben knew exactly what he was getting into. So when the outcome did turn out as his friends had warned him beforehand, then, he also shares accountability as he had he option not to risk his 100K. But he knew and still did.

  11. You don’t have to smell the tae to know it’s tae. What can we do ba, you don’t have to be matalino to know what kind of a person you are dealing with. You can only blame yourself for a two year long of stupidity. Seriously, you are a willing victim. Two years is a long time to turn a blind eye.

  12. Saw his facebook and is he trying to project the image that he owns Cocomelody in New York? Parang nagwowork lang sya dun

  13. Puey has been in FP's page in the past:

  16. Medyo may malabo sa kwento nya.. so iniwan sya sa ere bigla? Siguro may lovers quarrel or kaya nag selos ung isa. Well walang pinipiling kasarian ang love same goes to stupidity. Importante eh napasaya ka din ni puey kahit papano. Naranasan mo din ang tinatawag na love un lang sa part mo may bayad.

    2. Sa paraan ng pagsulat ni Ben, parang friends lang sila. Alam mo ung mag friends na beks taz niloko nung isa? Nakawitness nako ng ganito sa mga kaibigan kong bakla.. Sa sobrang sama ng loob siguro neto ni Ben, napapost. Ako na girl, binigyan ko din ng chance ang isa kong kaibigan despite ng sinasabi ng iba. Naniwala ako sa pagbabago, na everyone deserves a second chance or a third one ganyan kaso yeah, a scammer will always be a scammer. My empathy goes to you, Ben. You will be healed in time dahil sa mabait mong puso. Ma e earn mo ulit ung nawala sayo. Tiwala lang.

  17. I dont think they were lovers. It’s just also wrong to deceive people that he owns Cocomelody when it’s obvious that he is working there.

    1. Oo nga kasi nakalagay sa name nya na kanya yan.Kaloka

    2. He is not the owner. And he never said that he is. He is the.chief designer. It's also wrong to easily judge a person without knowing or hearing his side. It's very tyming na kung kelan bumabango na naman ang name ni puey,saka naman xa lumabas. Kung matagal na dapat noon pa nya yan nilabas. As in really now? Why? Because of envy? Kasi sya wala naman talaga syang pangalan. Gusto makisabay? Or should I say nakikisawsaw sa kasikatan? Kung na scam pala sya dapat d day na na scam sya dapat nireklamu na nya.common sense people! Why now? Alam naman natin sa America diba? Strict sila. Dapat noon pa. Hindi lang sya napagbigyan sa hinihingi nyang favor bigla syang nagka ganyan? Hahaha! Kawawa! He has no talent at all...paninira lang ang alam nya.

    3. Mag wiki ka search mo para malaman mo na may ari siya

      Delete
    4. here's what it says, Puey is the Creative Director for a global bridal brand, CocoMelody.So mukhang part owner siya dyan bilang Creative Director parang Alexander Mc Queen for Gucci. Genern.

      Delete
  18. Actually, hindi lang si Puey yung ganyan na opportunista. Ako din may experience when i was involved in Phil fashion industry dati. Good thing nasa 5 digit in pesos lang. Susuyuin ka then pag nakuha na nila ang gusto nila then goodbye. Most of them poorita pero may delusion of grandeur..social climber disguised as fashion designer. With that combo, jan lilitaw ang prob.

    1. hindi ko sure kung ano ang kalakaran sa fashion industry like lets say you are not the designer, you are the investor. Ano yun 50/50 kayo or siguro may pursyento lang dapat.

  19. Why would u invest money to a stranger with a shady past?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Actually he is the head designer for Cocomelody in Los Angeles but rumors going around that he was just let GO recently because he used company funds for his extravagant lifestyle. He also owes a lot of money from friends here in Manila & Los Angeles.. tsk tsk tsk .. he never learned his lesson .

    2. Puey is the Creative Director for a global bridal brand, CocoMelody.Ito ang nakalagay sa Wiki. So dapat burahin na yan if he is no longer connected to this company.

  22. OMG! he never learned his lesson. Puey strikes again.

  23. lol paawa effect eh may hidden agenda ka naman kaya ka "naginvest" hahaha...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I agree sa mga comments na it is also ben’s fault and that is not victim shaming, its stating a fact
    He was warned, he was made aware of quinones past, bakit sya lang ba ang fashion designer na me talent na in need of financial help?
    At the end of the day, its ben’s fault
    No need to warn others

    ReplyDelete
  25. hello to all! mainstream fashion is no joke, 100 thousand dollars is nothing to create a brand specially in America. its a serious thing that you need a deep pocket to make it known. thats the reason why even the great designers in America and Europe are being financed by Billionaires like LVMH Arnault or Francois Pinault who owns the major brands now. Puey is just a creative in this issue and Ben as a first time financier who gambled his hard earned money is clueless! Real Fashion is Expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well sisihin mo sarili mo kuya for being st*pid plain and simple wag na magrant dahil ginusto mo yan after all the warning from your own family and friends eh sumigi ka parin kaya pasensya🙄🙄🙄

    ReplyDelete
  27. Kawawa si Ben. May mga tao talaga na walang kaluluwa. Ang importante lang sa kanila is ma maintain ang image na may pera. Kahit naman magka pera si puey di naman siya mukang alta

  28. Hmmm.....that’s too common among kababayans. Be aware.

  29. Though a person may change, be cautious. Don't fully trust someone who was known to cheat where money is concerned. And these people are so good in pushing the buttons to make you sympathetic to them. Again, the past is the key to the future. I just feel sad for you to learn the lesson at such a high cost.

  30. Nalugi sila kaya nawala siguro ang brand and they parted ways ng hindi maayos.But any type of business is a gamble

  31. in fairness, gwapo si Ben Ferrer.
