The 36-year-old was picked up on Wednesday evening for overstaying, the police said in a statement yesterday.

Officers said they received reports that a man was offering computer hard disks at an electronics website, But after the victims forked out money, the disks never arrived.

Administrator of the online forum Evan Yeat said dozens of members placed orders for the hard disks, which were advertised for about $250, $100 less than the regular price.

The suspect is believed to have been staying with his girlfriend, a Singaporean, at her flat in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 2.

Police asked anyone who has placed orders for hard disks via the forum and did not receive them to make a police report immediately.

BFKINGPIN clickbank account and it's dealings.

The user BFKINGPIN at clickbank has had his hands in quite a few scams.  Whenever I get an emailer from one of their mailing lists for a new product, first thing I do is check out the Joint Venture page.  

More often than not they promote their own products, and while they try to obfuscate their real identities. The always have to use their clickbank ID.

TheForexMagicMachine page listed "bfkingpin" which set of alarmbells.   If you perform a DNS lookup for the domains or you would know that they are hosted on the same server (  

If you head over to and perform a reverse lookup on the server IP (, you will get a list of domains currently hosted on that server. 

Notice that most of the domains use name servers at, but if you were to head to the site You'd get a message saying Their Satisfaction is our Dissatisfaction.

Domain whois.  Note the address. Most of their mails share the same physical return mailing address.
