The old thread is here but it got crowded over the years so we'll begin anew:
Across MOTL, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Youtube, ebay, etc Jen Cheng is known to scam people. Whether buying an item and claiming he doesn't receive it, asking you to sell an item for you that he never sends, and other scams he has been doing this for the past 2 decades. A lot of information has been collected on him.
We believe this is his information:
Name: Jen Hao Cheng or possibly Jen Hao Den Cheng
License pictures: https://imgur.com/UozaNvm & http://i.imgur.com/Sj3XL9h.jpg
2535 Brighton Road
Tallahassee, Florida 32301
Though looking that up online shows addresses around that number but not the exact number so there has been some speculation about whether its an apartment complex, or that building has since gotten demolished, or if the license pictures we have above have some incorrect information but Ive looked up the license before in the Florida system and it seems legitimate.
The P.O. Box he uses to receive goods that he then scams ebay, paypal, sellers etc by claiming he never received is:
P.O. Box 6034
Tallahassee, FL 32314

Some information on his typical scams:
1 ebay scam: https://imgur.com/HQa8wAW
Hey, you look like you could use a free $2,000 WALMART gift card while you find that dream job you always wanted. Please visit my website ASAP if you want this gift card. It's only used for as a donation
Hey, sell this box of beta magic the gathering boosters for $3,000 online. Just send me $2,000 of it and you can keep the other $1,000, and give me the mailing address Ill ship it to the buyer. The ebay seller sells the box, Jen (who has never even owned this box), obviously never sends the box. He gets the $1,000 from the ebay seller and then the ebay buyer files a charge back to that person getting all $3,000 of their money back so the seller is out the $1,000 they sent to Jen.
He creates a new ebay account, buys something like a $3,000 box of the dark. Has it shipped to a PO Box, then claims he never received it or it was damaged beyond usefulness and files a claim. Ebays super buyer-friendly system awards him his money back even if the seller has proof otherwise. Jen then uses Instagram or other services I wont include here right now (since he doesnt know we know) to sell the stolen good.
We have for sale a complete set of a Magic the Gathering (MTG trading cards) beta Power Nine that includes a beta Black Lotus that's been graded 10/10. We have kept the cards in a smoke free home. If you would like to purchase these nine cards from us today, we will even include a full set of 40 revised dual lands FOR FREE (a $5,000 value). All power nine cards have been graded (most graded with precision at 7.5 or higher). You'll also get FOR FREE three sealed boxes of Alliances and three sealed boxes of Modern Masters just for purchasing the beta Power Nine cards all graded and they are all in GOOD/MINT condition. You can have 30 days to return if not completely and 100% satisfied with the 9 cards.
If you'd like to see more pictures of our beta power nine cards, send us an email! Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our cell phone number is: (850) 491-4860. You can text that number at anytime. For specific requests of pictures (at any angle) of the 9 cards, just ask! Asking price: $16,000. It's really worth $100,000 what we have. Everyone who knows the Power Nine cards (in beta version) knows it's extremely hard to find. There's one person selling it on eBay and he hasn't sold it for $100,000 yet. When you buy my collection, you're only paying like $4,000 for the same beta Black Lotus that's been graded 10/10.
If you'd like to help us sell it, any amount above $16,000 is yours to keep. You can begin by posting it as an auction for $18,000 since eBay and PayPal fees are around 4%. You can start by making it a 3 day auction, and relisting it every 3 days until you are able to net a buyer. Our asking price is very reasonable. We have seen single (just one) power nine cards being auctioned off for $8,000 each but we think our price is reasonable at $16,000 for all the MTG power. Pictures of the 9 cards are below. Pictures of the 40 revised dual lands are below. If you have any questions about this job opportunity, give us a call. We can be reached at: (850) 491-4860.
When you're ready to begin listing it on eBay, send me a text message. If you are ready to start making $4,000 or $5,000 in commissions (selling it above $16,000 using these photos) three days from today and getting paid the $20,000 or $21,000 just text me the eBay item number when it's posted. We won't make you pay us first. We will ship it to your buyer first. When he or she gets all 49 cards, the 3 Alliances and the 3 Modern Masters sealed booster boxes and leaves you a positive feedback, that's when you will pay us directly $16,000 to the PayPal email account -- email@example.com
You don't have anything to lose as a third-party seller. You don't need to pay me until the buyer receives all the cards and the free gifts.
Do you want to buy Ultimate Masters from me at $300 each? I got these directly from distributors and paid $275 until they are all gone. These boxes are sealed. At least 90% of eBay sellers, are selling them above $350. I will make you a winner each time, if you buy them from me at $300 each. What I need to do is get your full name (first and last) and your store address, as I could only legally ship them to your store. Youll sign for it from UPS or FedEx. Then youll see its in pristine condition and youll write me a normal check for $310, the $10 covers the cost of shipping for one box each time. I eat the rest of the costs of shipping. Do we have a handshake deal?
