I wanted to inform all members and get the word out about this scammer. He scammed me in February when I paid him for a Stop Tech BBK. He got my $2500 and I got nothing (It was my fault to wire transfer the money since he didn't sent anything to me). After trying over and over to get it resolved he stopped contact with me. I had move on with stressing over it as I work hard for my money and have put a lot into my Z. But I haven't forgotten who has my $2500 and will get it back one day (I have all the txts/email and info since the Cops won't do anything about it).
I recently got in contact with a member on the my350z forum, because I was thinking of buying his Project Mu Brakes. That member ended up shipping the Brakes to a buyer that was suppose to pay him. I texted him (Nick, Lives in BC) and what did I find out, he shipped the brakes to Brandon MB, right then I said the guys name and it was the same scammer that got me! (And Cops won't do anything about his situation as well)
The name of this scammer is Chris Malko (went with Kris when dealing with the other forum member) Email is Malko1987@live.ca and still uses it. His address is 1060 3RD ST N Brandon MB R7A 2M7(Can see his girlfriends orange 350z when looking at the house on google map). Phone number was (204)720-8982 and changed it. Goes by 350ZMALKO on instagram.
He had his Z on kijiji a while back, and then repost it recently but took it down(he told me he traded it in with the brakes for a sti a while back when we talked but he still has it).
Here is the link on my350z.com http://my350z.com/forum/brakes/578364-project-mu-forged-sport-6-piston-front-4-piston-big-brake-kit.html

I can post all the messages and email as Nick did on the forum. Anything that Chris says is a lie, and does not do as he says he will do. If you live in Brandon or know anyone that does then spread the word about this scammer. I want everyone to know and be warned about him. I'm posting pictures on reference to his Z and kijiji post. One day I will get my money back, and Nick will get back his brakes, but this isn't a perfect world and if we don't take matters into our own hands then nothing will be accomplished.

Thanks, Top Tier Community,
Anthony

    I remember that whole mess with the brakes!! This guy is a clown! I didn't realize he ****ed you too!!! Also didn't realize he was in Brandon!
     
    I sent this to a buddy in Brandon who knows a lot of people in the car scene there.

    Also, seriously consider small claims court for your money. You've got his name an address, I think that's all you need.

        I agree with Al. Try taking him to court for the money.

        Hope it all works out for you Anthony.

          You know where he lives, go visit him with 10 other guys and ask him "politely" for your money back.

                I've heard of this guy.
                I believe he used to have a silver z?
                I think Bentley (Evan) may have mentioned some problems with him quite some time back.
                His old lady has a orange vert z.

                Only heard bad things about this character,
                If anything is needed, let me know. I have partial ties to the local scene.

                  Had a similar situation happen to me but my seller was in the States. What resolved it was keeping good records of all conversations, creating a thread like this, and talking to moderators where the culprit frequents. I tracked down a lot of the places he was selling things and talked w/ the mods of those places online. They locked his threads essentially cutting him off from selling anything else. Suddenly he re-opened communication with me and shipped the item.
                  I got lucky, and I hope you have similar luck cuz I had already given up hope. It was a good 6-7 months from payment to item arrival.

                    He'll race you for pinks. He'll race anyone for pinks. And then when he loses he leaves town.

                    Most of Brandon is aware of him, but it's always good to keep things fresh in peoples minds.  I'm sorry you got scammed, I hope it gets resolved in your favor quickly.

                      So his address can be confirmed?  Time to go speak w brandon police and bring a cop w you to his house?  Or small claims.  Or you can assemble a team of highly trained individuals for vigilante justice lol.  Jk

                        If this guy is known for this, I'm really surprised he hasn't had a "talking to" and learned his lesson yet... It's just going to take him screwing the wrong person once before he'll never do it again....

                              Yup, his girl owns an Orange Z. He drives a Lime Green Z like this one:




                              I want to voice in the Manitoba community and let everyone know about my situation:

                              1. I sent Kris the Project Mu BBK and expected him to send money, but he faced issues and said he couldn't.
                              2. I tried contact UPS 5 times to CANCEL the shipment but they attempted to do so anyway, which legitimately screwed me over
                              3. Kris claims all the items were not intact and was lost during the shipment (yet he still signed that he "received it"), yet he didn't notice the huge hole in the box and the ripped bag of all my accessories
                              4. Kris offered to ship it back. He CLAIMS he sent it back but he never provided a tracking code. Ever since then, he has avoided my messages, never returned my calls, and said an excuse saying he went back to work.

                              Guys, all I want is either my MONEY that he was supposed to send me or simply my BBK back again. The value of the goods, i'm sure, is around $5,000 for a used set. And for me to not have that money.. I'm taking a huge hit financially from this. If anyone from the Manitoba community can help out, please PM me directly and I can provide as much information I have!!! If you guys have any information regarding Kristopher/Chris Malko, please text me at 1-778-388-3135

                              Let me know!

                                      Why would people wire transfer when you can be protected by PayPal?? You're just asking to be screwed. Hope you get your money back man!

                                            people for some reason don't trust paypal. I almost got scammed using paypal when I sold a set of wheels. After I had given the guy a tracking number, he made a non authorized payment dispute, his money was refunded, and luckily I got to the shipping place before they loaded them on the truck.

                                            I hope you get your money back. Even if it takes a bunch of guys to go knock on his door and break a few teeth
