MEDIA – A used luxury brand watch collector alleges an Ashton man sold him more than $16,000 worth of fake Rolex watches.
Jasper Yonker filed a complaint Nov. 19 in the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County against Richard Hentosh alleging fraud, deceit and violation of Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection law.
Yonker, who collects previously owned luxury brand watches, alleges he responded to a Facebook post by Hentosh on April 2 in regards to the sale of a Submariner watch that Hentosh claimed was made by Swiss watch company Rolex SA. The suit states Yonkers purchased the watch for $12,000 and later that month purchased another Rolex watch from the defendant for $14,200. The plaintiff alleges the watchers were both fakes as determined by an expert watchmaker.
Yonker alleges that Hentosh has only refunded around $13,000 for both watches despite Hentosh receiving both watches back.
Yonker seeks monetary relief of more than $25,000, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by Shawn McBrearty and Gary Green of Sidkoff, Pincus & Green PC in Philadelphia.
