    Hey all. I just stumbled upon this site, http://www.phuongmods.com/, and was wondering; has anybody heard of it?? I've tried googling it and have come up with next to nothing. I just wanted to know if this guy is reputable or not. Thanks!

    Never heard of it (and neither have search engines save some classified ads), the site being dosed with flash and a 5 second loop of lift music it does not inspire.
    Not to mention the services provided (backups provided you sign to say you own it: pleads entrapment sort of thing).


    In short avoid, $45 Canadian is not bad for installation but you can do better.

    2 week old website, claims to have done 327 Wii mods. Caveat emptor.

    On top of it all, that logo looks a bit dodgy, and the flash site seems to be a template with the logo slapped on.

    Would stay well away.

    This guy just popped out of nowhere and is claiming to be very experienced - he is also advertising in many BST forums and classifieds - he has no prior feedback or established customer base. I would be cautious.

    I don't know the validity of someone who just popped up on this board to claim legitimacy. First post??? Did you register just to post this?

    more are posting there as I speak. i've done over 600+ customers and my works can be found here

    http://psx-scene.com/forums/wii-modchips/5...no-talk-10.html

    if you dont trust my service, I cannot do anything about that
    and regarding

    if someone came on the board with a newly joined account and 1st post was
    "phuongmods.com is a scam site he took me wii"
    would you believe that to be valid?

    we all know what you would think, there are 2 sides of the coin, make sure you see both sides before deciding.

    point is, I rather good replies to my service and gain more customers then take one persons wii and lose out on profit that is infinite, where as to a wii that is worth 320$, i make that much in a day, if not more.
