The Super Replicas scam still lives! I’m very jittery, which probably means this will be a half-assed post, but hear me out.
I saw that www.superreplicas.com now redirects you to www.chickmagnetcars.com. It’s a new website, new YouTube channel, new ripped content. “Glorious!” I think to myself, “everyone’s favorite scammers are back!”
About 20 minutes ago, I called the number listed on the website. A man with an accent picks up the phone. I ask “Hello, is this Chickmagnet cars?”
Me: “Is this company affiliated with Super Replicas?”
Guy: “...Let me transfer your call.”
*A minute nothingness. Probably just set the phone down.*
Then, a man picks up with an Australian accent, sounding clearly like Daniel John Seppings sounded in AltThrottle’s video.
The man says, “Hello! What would you like?” in a rather joyful tone.
I say, “Whoah! Is this Daniel John Seppings? The man who screws people over with fake replicas?”
The man on the other end says, “N...N...No... You must have a wrong number?”
The call continued for 11 minutes. I relentlessly asked him question after question. I asked him for a real name... he said Michael Ballaban. He preached about Donald Trump, Mexicans, Obama’s wife allegedly having a penis, and so on and so forth. This guy sounded insane.
But how do I know he was Daniel John Seppings?
When I mentioned Jalopnik, he said the exact quote from AltThrottle’s video about how “there will always be haters when you’re such a famous company.”
This guy is still kicking. I eventually pissed him off, and he ended the call. But, yeah! I spoke with Daniel John Seppings.
