The saga of the broken laptop sold on eBay continues

 Amir Massoud Tofangsazan broken laptop ebay

Regular coolest gadget readers will no doubt remember the story of the guy who allegedly paid £375 for a broken laptop on eBay from an Amir Massoud Tofangsazan.

When the buyer failed to get a refund on the laptop, he set up a website of pictures and edited personal information that he found on the laptop’s hard drive – the only part of the device that was still functioning.

The story would have been forgotten by now – until it was announced recently that the British police have been called in to investigate an “improper use of public electronic communications network…”

On the website in question, there are pictures of Amir as well as excerpts from a collection of pornographic pictures also (apparently) found on the hard drive. The gallery of shame, which includes hidden camera pictures of women’s legs taken on the London Underground, has had over a million visitors in the short time that it’s been up.

We would kill for that sort of web traffic, but it seemed that interest was fading until the police were called in to investigate on Monday.

I wonder who called the cops. It couldn’t have been Mr Amir Massoud Tofangsazan could it? I mean I’m sure he couldn’t have been so stupid as to bring even further attention to himself, and the website photo collection?

In any case I’m sure Amir Massoud Tofangsazan really, really wishes he’d deleted those smutty pictures from that laptop. Of course he wouldn’t have been able to do that if the laptop was broken; as has been claimed.   

Thanks LaffinLady.

you are pathetic, full of allegations without a full story. I believe you should be ashamed of yourself. How do’es it feel behind you’re anonimity.

you cant see in black and white what is true can you, and yes this is a defence to an innocent young man, and frankly don’t care about you’re views to my comment. Down below i have included the black and white

1. Quote laptop guy (Thomas Sawyer, i did not make it explicitly clear because i did not want Amir to say i told you so, but i took apart the laptop and started to soldor the mother board needle. I have put most of it back together but some screws and parts remain un attached because i do not remember where they all go.
(THIS IMPLIES HE BROKE THE LAPTOP) (My thought Tom, if you are going to lie the 1st rule do not admit to it)

2. Have a pay pal donate button, make money from that, then remove it, because he realised he is exposing himself to police. (IMPLIES THAT HE JUST WANTS TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF THIS)

3. Quote Tom Sawyer from a response from a reader of the website ” No i am not going to give this up this may be a savvy career move for me after my studies” (THIS ALSO IMPLIES THAT THIS IS JUST FOR MONEY)

4. Quote Tom Sawyer, I have made the money for the laptop it helps but i am still a cash strapped student £5,000 overdraft and not to mention £18,000 to government (THIS IMPLIES HE DID THIS NOT FOR REVENGE, BUT FOR THE REASON OF HIS DEBTS)

5. Selling advertising space on ebay (Money)

6. Trying to sell his exclusive to the sun he stated he was waiting for it to be published after giving the exclusive to The Sun Newspaper, The Daily mail have approached me, a journalyst called Olynka Costa i have not said much because i do not like the Daily mail, I prefer The Sun more it makes me laugh. The reason why The Sun did not publish the story quote from the news editor, its full of liable and we do not want to be exposed to a liable suit after viewing the comments and website carefully and being liased by the Metropolitan Police.

7. publicist Lucy Murphy quote, I sold some concert tickets on ebay and i only got the tickets today, the concert is tommorrow, I have sent it by special guarenteed next day delivery by 12pm. The buyer lives in Milton Keyens where the concert is held, the gates do not open till 2pm. She opened a dispute against me. (Shows ebay is full of buyer frauds)

8. An interview tape i got from the news editor at the daily mail with the phone conversation with Olynka Costa, shows that she twisted Amir’s every quote to jazz up the story, The only thing Amir said is no comment and this evidence about him doing it for money showing and stating the evidence, The evidence was never quoted in the story she published in anyway shape or form, she disregarded it

9. Quote laptop guy this site has given me so much entertainment it is worth every penny (Implies he also did this for so called “kicks” ( a laugh as well as making money)

10. Selling the exclusive to Daily Mail, making money from that angle

11. Having pictures of sept 11th and july 7th and then removing it ( A ricist comment This links to the BBC calling it ” A HATE CRIME” (by removing it, imples that he has exposed himself to the legal authorities further)

12. Getting another user (MEDIA LUSH) To carry on his story. ( This implies he wants to shift from himself, Mr Sawyer to MEDIA LUSH)

Laws quoted by The Times and BBC & Sky News(Factural media companies)

misuse of electronic public communications



Defrauding people by means of money (MONEY LAUNDERING)


Fraud (editing someones passport and in the hands of this and having access to bank accounts of the family)


P.S Debbie Mclinty (I know i spelt her surname wrong) wanted the five mins of fame and money, she did not give Olynka Costa (a way to make the story juicer to the public), technique used by the media quote from ex news editor Max Clifford ( I believe the sun) was dismissed for publishing pics of soldiers abusing detainee’s now a publicist with his own company.

I do not care what your comments are to this, predicting most of them condeming this comment from myself. I dont care about punctuation and gramma and spelling at 04:20 british time. Good luck if you still side with this man Tom Sawyer which has exposed him, oh yeah good luck trying to curse and exploit rumors which are not true.

Robert M King = Amir, lol still not able to handle the truth and still lying i see. Some people will never learn.

Amir or Mr King if you prefer, seek help for your compulsive lying before it’s to late to do anything about it.

LOL… we wondered who it was. The name looks a little unlikely and the email address doesn’t match with the ISP. Also the poor usage of English, as well as the numerous spelling and grammatical errors, reminded us of other comments apparently attributed to Mr Amir Massoud Tofangsazan. That and the general ranting of the comment led us to believe that it was a post from none other than Amir himself, whose campaign to clear his good name seems to be backfiring spectacularly.
Yes, it looks like someone’s doing an Amir.

Definition of to ‘do an Amir’

To con money out of someone, lie or be otherwise dishonest, only to face ritual humiliation on a worldwide scale.
