Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

For what it's worth, I had a recent attempt by one "Jamal Johnson", a "charity worker" wanting me to use "Victory Shipping" to send an order to Haiti. All the usual features were present. However, I don't think there's that much point listing names anymore- they can always pick new ones. More a matter of knowing the signs.

My company is selling cosmetic products and recently was contacted by mary wesley at maywesleystoresltd@yahoo.com. She did the same thing to me like what she did to someone posted on 'November 29, 2013 - 2:46pm'. She ask me to provide quote for several products with qty of 12 each with total about $3000 and providing me with the Netherlands address. Since she has never been my customer and suddenly trying to quote a large qty and this raise my suspicion. I decided to Google her e-mail and google highlight her e-mail lead me to this page. Reading through the posts and I found her e-mail appear in someone's post. I'm glad that I found this link and avoid any potential monetary lost. Thank you guys for the posts and sharing your experience with others.
See the email thread below for a recent example of this. It starts with the email I sent to the US DOJ Fraud alert email address, then progresses backward to the original inquiry. to Fraud@usdoj.gov To whom it may concern: The following email thread shows the correspondence between our company and "Jim Beavers", who appears to be a fake shipping company scammer. Of course we get these kind of inquiries fairly often, and we usually ignore them. However, this one seems to be a little more sophisticated than most. Perhaps you could update your fraud alerts to include this. If there is anything I can do to help curtail this annoying activity, please let me know.

We just received a scam e-mail to and Thanks to Glass Magazine.com you have saved us!! Here is the scam e-mail for everyone to see so we can save you too. First e-mail to our company: Hello Do you ship to Hungary and accept US issue Master,Visa and Discovery cards as method of payment. Warmest Regards Richard Our response back: Hello Richard: Thank you for contacting us. Yes, we ship internationally and accept the credit cards you mention below. Their next response back to us: Here are the list of items i want: Blue Cheese Kit W/O Cave ... 40 Qtys Cheese Cave-Rectangular ... 40 Qtys Cheese Cave-Round-1A ... 40 Qtys Cheese Cave-Round-1B ... 40 Qtys Danisco CHOOZIT Bacteria Linens-LB LYO-10 doses ... 40 Qtys Delivery Address: Company Name: Brad & Brothers Inc 15 Budapest, Batthyány utca 59, Hungary Concerning the shipping , the likes of UPS, DHL and others always don't take care of the charges down here. Charges like handling,customs and duties etc. We have experienced such situation before and i don't want to experience such thing again,you do not need to worry about the stress involve and all documentations because i have a shipping company that have delivered to me in the past,i really like their services so i will like you to contact them about the shipping.I will be glad if you contact this shipper MLSLtd for the shipping quote. Here is there email address (mindexlogistics@aol.com) They will take care of everything including handling, customs and duties,Tax, insurance etc,also you willbe responsible for payment to MLSLtd then all costs as far as shipping, taxes, duties, and insurance in addition to the costs of the product should be sent to me in a proforma invoice to be paid in advance of shipment.Always send me the copy of email you send to them ,pls email them with pick up address,shipping address and the weight of the order.

Our response back once we found out on Glass Magazine.com that this was a scam. I bet we will never get an order!! We do accept US based credit cards, however, not via e-mail or over the telephone. You can place the order through our website. Because the credit card is US issue, but product is being shipping to Hungary, our security department will process the credit card, send the credit card detail to the credit card company for verification and this could take up to 30 days. After this wait of 30 days, we will prepare the order, but we only use FedEx, UPS and the United States Post Office for shipping so all orders can be tracked and they can validate the buyer and shipping address. Additionally, all fees for use of these carriers will automatically be charged to the credit card when you place the order online. If you select FedEx or UPS through of system, you are required to enter a Tax ID for Brad & Brothers, Inc. which will be cross checked against the government database for valid shipping information because of the international nature of the shipment. If for any reason during this process, our security department determines information doesn't match, name, company, shipping address, Tax ID, credit card, etc. and/or the address doesn't check out with FedEx, UPS or the United States Post Office, the order will be rejected. We appreciate your interest in our cheese making supplies.

Have a nice day. --- Best Regards, Alex Hoffman Branch Supervisor Express Shipping
I have fun with these scam guys all the time. I follow through all correspondences until I finally get the credit card information from them.. I then will contact the credit card company's and let them know what scam is being pulled and they will cancel the card immediately. I've done this a dozen times over three years or so. Hopefully I've saved some people's credit cards from getting used.
Wish I had time to do that! I just got a request for some printed banners going to Spain. I guess some people must still fall for this type of scam.
My turn... (May 6th until May 12th) through precisiondancepads.com (is my site getting popular enough to invite scammers now?, I'm feeling proud). We've had bigger sales than this so it wasn't a big deal plus we are open to re-sellers around the world that want to stock our product as we both manufacture and sell the product ourselves.

Kind Regards Scott Cent Okay if you take a look at our website there you will receive all the information. However, For the pad itself the cost is $300, shipping is $150, and when you receive the pad YOU pay the duties&taxes.

Get back to me with the total cost to move forward with contacting the freight company for pick up quote. Kind Regards Scott Cent Scott, We will use our own freight company for this order, 20 units is not a big order for our shipping company and they offer us a great rate. Total package weight is 400lbs and size is 40"x40"x40". You can simply order the products through our website and we will then have all the data we need to complete the order, shipping and bulk item discounts are already considered on the site. Have a great day, the sooner you place the order the sooner we will get these built as they are only made to order, your products will not be built until the order is processed.

We have just received emails and telephone calls from Larry Roy of KEMBOSY STORE, 784, Tan KIM wanting us to use his freight forwarder: EASY-POINT FREIGHT SERVICES. Good job we did some research... if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
hy , and what happened? fake company?
I also got an enquiry from Larry Roy of KEMBOSY store. Thank you for posting this because so far he hasn't mentioned freight forwarding and as Vietnam is being plugged by the UKTI as a good emerging market I thought it might be real! I had one before from Haiti and smelled a rat immediately. Ros - delightlondon.com
Today I got emai from: firstpointfreightlimited@gmail.com Warning it's scam and fake company . And phone number cost you money. It's look like uk phone number but it's NOT. +44(0)7045770203
We are a topical analgesic company and were just hit by a similar scam. I was suspicious to start because of the unusual size of the order and the shipping destination in a foreign country - Spain. The name of the shipping company is, Fastliners Shipping International Services, which is how I found this blog after doing a web-search for this particular company. The shipping expense was nearly as much as the product and the individual did not seem to mind, whose name was Robert Robinson and the shipping contact's name was Jefferson William. Red-flags all over the place and just be aware and alert of transactions out-of-the-ordinary that involve a remote destination and an unknown shipping company.
How did you know that the cargo courier is fake? Let me ask this,if your going to receive a cargo package do I need to pay local charges in my country even if the sender paid already the transaction for delivery?I am crazy thinking this kind of question.If anybody have idea please tell me what to do now?Am afraid of fake cargo or scam.
The way that "we" know the cargo company is fake... is because YOU are one of the scammers. "If anybody have idea please tell me what to do NOW? AM afraid of fake cargo or scam". Your terminology and your grammar are lousy. What you do to people is terrible. Stolen Credit Cards and stiffing people on freight charges. You should be ashamed of yourself!
Thanks to all of you for posting this SCAM - I too was contacted by someone that called themselves Paul Roberts, initially stating he was from Paul and Sons wanting 30 tables and to give him a quote. Then he wanted me to use his shipping company, Swift Shipping's International - I guess these scammers will keep trying LOL - we're getting too smart for them! I pray others will be able to read the warning signs too.
I think they just tried to get us as well. We are a granite company and they want us to fabricate and ship 4 large pieces to Spain. But I looked up the shipping company they wanted to use, and I can't find a website or contact number for them.... Seems a little fishy if you ask me.
To Granite Company... Yes, they want 300 cases of peanut brittle which is $6,516.00 plus shipping (with their carrier) the total is $12,416.00. They used the carrier called "Fastlinershippingntl@gmail.com and Flinershipping.intl@hotmail.com. Which caught my eye because carriers do not use the @hotmails and @gmails. No website or anything... The contact name for the one I got is Mr. Jefferson William. Really??? This went so far that I actually got a credit card number. I called the bank to let them know and just hung up... sure enough the card info was stolen.
Drop Victory International Shipping ... The name of the shipping company they asked us to ship the granite through.. Just so you all know!!!!

I just received the same thing but from a LARRY ROY: "Concerning the shipping ,The likes of UPS, DHL and others always don't take care of the charges down here.Charges like handling,customs and duties etc. We have experienced such situation before and i don't want to experience such thing again,you do not need to worry about the stress involve and all documentations because i have a shipping company that have delivered to me in the past,i really like their services so i will like you contact them about the shipping.I will be glad if you contact this shipper (EASY-POINT FREIGHT SERVICES) for the shipping quote.

There are a couple of posts up here that I wanted to point out to everyone. The ones that say things like this… “How did you know that the cargo courier is fake? Let me ask this,if your going to receive a cargo package do I need to pay local charges in my country even if the sender paid already the transaction for delivery?I am crazy thinking this kind of question.If anybody have idea please tell me what to do now?Am afraid of fake cargo or scam”. You can see with the terminology and the grammar, that this person is ONE OF THE SCAMMERS. Just read it, then go back and look at the emails that the scammers have sent you. Not to mention… Read the part about “If YOUR receiving cargo, and do I need to pay charges in MY country”.
The scam continues... We are a small boutique and we received an email for candles for a man's boss. We were a little suspicious but tried to give him the benefit of the doubt. We told him for such a large order we would have to talk to him in person as we don't house that many candles. He actually called but he was muffled and breaking up so you couldn't understand him. He wanted to pay by credit card and have his shipping company come and pick it up at our boutique. He changed his tune and said it was going to be sent to his friend in Turkey. The shipping company when I looked it up doesn't exist. Thanks to this blog we have been saved from a scam!

We are a funeral home in the Toronto area and received a call from a Ken Waddell looking to purchase a casket from our location to be shipped to England (even though he claimed to be in Washington, DC). We smelled a scam right away - caskets are readily available in England, and there would be no shipping charges whatsoever. We googled his email address and name and found this site and thought we'd post our experience to warn others. Looks like the number was tied to YMAX, which is the company that invented the MagicJack. Stolen phone numbers and stolen credit card numbers- all the way around it's a scam. Beware.

We too have been contacted by John Moore regarding shipping two antique Chinese cabinets to New Zealand, from Florida USA. The cost of the shipping would have been almost as much as the product. Our first clue to the scam was a quote from "Baltic Freight Company" sent from an iphone. Now, we realize that business can be handled thru mobile phones but this seemed not right and almost unprofessional. Our customers usually want more details about our antiques and more pictures than are posted on our website, but John was quite content with the front on view and asked for no other pics. The approach was quite the same as the other blogs listed: Contact the freight company and get a shipping quote and the total bill would be paid by credit card. We even received a phone call by a person (John Moore) with a very heavy Indian sounding lilt in his voice asking whether we had received the shipping quote. We informed him that we had and he was OK with the price and wanted to process the sale right then over the phone. We told him that we would send pictures of the cabinets for confirmation and then would process the credit card. Thankfully another business friend suggested that we Google John Moore and we found this site thus shedding light on the scam. Although, has anyone figured how the scam works? We told him we would not pay freight or release product until the funds were in our bank account. Steve @ Asian Willow Gallery June 6, 2014
One I got today. We get these daily and you can always tell they are scams as they want to know what CC you take. It's clearly on our site as well as all our products.

I will kindly be glad if you can send me a catalog to your bags to browse through. Do let me know if only you produce custom Abrasives. I will like to also inquire on the type of credit card you do accept for payment as well as surchages included. Do you accept pick up orders ?

Just got an email from "Donald Bren," the richest man in California, working with D&B Sons, Ltd. Wanted to order over $12K in custom banners that said "Victory for America in Brazil" to be shipped via Global Express Shippers, Inc. to "Mrs.Linda Ann Avenida Álvares Cabral 1777, Salas 801 a 810, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, 30170-001 Brazil". The shipping company doesn't exist. The company at this address appears to be some sort of energy company, unless they've set up a fake site, too. This person wanted me to contact their shipping guy, Captain Larry Ford, Sr., to schedule a pick up. This person said they were leaving for Mexico very soon and needed to get the payment taken care of right away. I was very suspicious with the whole thing as the email featured poor English, poor punctuation,and poor grammar. The email addresses were all Gmail accounts. The phone number was fake. I'm glad I came across this page. We are a very small company with a very small sign shop. Losing $12K worth of materials would have been a huge blow. I emailed "Donald" to tell him that I knew he was trying to screw us over and I wasn't going to fall for it. I called him a douchebag. :) I haven't received a response.
I got the exact same email today for the same price!!
Just got the same email from our good buddy Donald Bren. i hope no one falls for this!
