If Harmonic TT does not complete the restitution I will have to ban him permanently.  Please keep me informed.  I will decide on what additional information needs to be taken, such as publishing his complete name and contact information. 

There are way too many complaints about this person.

I don't think it is a good idea to expose his info here no matter what he has done. I have a feeling that he has been trying to do something right, but did not have the will power. Hopefully someone here knows him personally and asks him to be a decent person (young kid or adult) to do the right thing. 

In the future, let him sell here again? I would say no. People hardly change.

This is HarmonicTT. All these names are fake. I am quite sure I know his real identity though and will gladly reveal it if given moderator approval.

Bingo. I had the same feeling too. These names and info are all from this same person. I just dodged a bullet from this guy. I backed out from a tradING deal with this person last minute, just because not feeling certain about his "language". I had one of his phone number and address too if sb wants to know....

In medical field, they have the term MRSA ( Virus that resistant to drugs and keep coming back). These low life scammers are just like that. But let us try one more time to get rid of them. These scammer make this forum (TT community) look bad. So no mercy from me.
This is what i got on him:

Connor Kim 
101 Foxtrap Dr.
Glen Burnie, MD 21061

His cell phone number (last number. he used it to text me couple of weeks back): 1-443-986-6xxx

My theory is: He is using his relatives/friends addresses. or maybe he has accomplices (his buddies, his wife...)
Hopefully, some members here live in that area may provide more info on him.

Christopher Lee is his real name. Please edit your posts accordingly. 101 Foxtrap is the correct address. More info coming later.

He also goes by:

Kim Tan
101 Foxtrap Dr.
Glen Burnie, MD 21061

Amazing.

I can only hope that these posts end up on Google searches that will be used by others considering employing or doing business with this person.

Does anyone live in the MD area and know the clubs available there? 

The local clubs should be aware of his deceitfulness and be mindful of any real-life transactions. This guy is a bane to such a small, passionate community. It'd be great if he's no longer affiliated with this sport.

According to my sources he is or was recently active at the "Howard County Table Tennis Center"
(hctt-md.com). Someone can give the GM a call at 443-583-4520 and tell them about "Chris Lee" and his behavior - or maybe get more real information. I'd encourage the scam victims to do so.

wow, cool. This should be the way from now on to deal with this in the future. It also sends a clear warning message to those scammers out there try to vcome here and mess with this community. It's a small world after all, you can run but can you hide?
Its getting warmer, I like it already...

So what is his real name?

This scammer is one of the epic cases.  One of the three worst for sure since I became a mod.  Blatant criminality.

Real name is Christopher J Lee or Chris Lee of Glen Burnie, MD.
Address 101 Foxtrap Drive, Glen Burnie, MD
Photo above is him as of June 2016

Believe he is not gainfully employed so doubt this will affect future employment opportunities.

Anyone want to give him or his parents a call to get the goods they paid for? Phone numbers can be provided too...

To those who didn't receive goods or payment, are you planning to take further steps?

Again, hopefully everyone edits their posts to include his real name.

Side note, all this high end equipment purchasing and he is about 1100-1200. Made a lot of strong statements about equipment and how it applies to gameplay. Always a good reminder to watch what you hear...

I've contacted Howard County TTC with the info in this thread. Hopefully, they note the info and act accordingly. This guy needs to be out of the community.

However that info will remain visible.

To scam here you often need to provide the victim an email or postal address.  That will in turn be posted here.  And I usually contact people at TTD as well.

Props to the Howard County TTC for standing up against this kind of behavior. Hopefully they continue to enforce that decision.

It is appalling that Christopher J Lee of Glen Burnie, MD would scam multiple people here in trades and sales and then go and ASK ONE OF HIS SCAM TARGETS to do him a favor and clear his name here so that he could avoid banishment from his club. So far removed from reality it is hilarious.

I finally received compensation from "Chris" yesterday to square our deal.

He asked to have his info removed from the forum and stated that he did not intend to be malicious and simply procrastinated.

Hopefully, Howard County TTC acted accordingly. I didn't get a response from them so it's not clear whether he truly cannot play or a pity plea to have his info removed.

I hope all dealings with "Chris" get resolved so the TT community is whole again.

I outed this guy as a scammer in December 2016 and published his name and address here.  It is a few pages back on this thread.  He went by Pongster then.  He comes back here as HarmonicTT.  Scams again, multiple people.  And now he wants me to take down the info that might protect people here in the future?  Why would I do that?.  So we have to deal with him again in 2020? If he gets kicked out of his local TT club, that is their decision.  My job is to protect people here and publishing names and addresses is one of the few tools I have.
