Comments

I'm a small sign co. in Florida,and mr. Alex Dennis contacted me.He wanted x100 3'x6' banners,I gave him an estimate and not even 1/2 hour later I got a call from a local area code phone number and the person said he was mr. Alex Dennis,and he said that the price is fine,and he ask me to get him a quote from a shipping co.that he preferred.The shipping co. name was agoriexpressship and it was a gmail account.He wanted the banners shipped to Sister Magret Asante,c/o New town Orphanage Home,673 Ring Road,Accra Ghana 00233,West Africa,That's When i Got very suspicious,did a research and and came across this blog.When ever someone orders something from africa,ignore it.
WOW... I just got an email order this morning wanting to order 100000 flyers. And they even included the artfile (if you want to call it that) Just plain on black and white print with "Stop Child Labor" written in large letters... I responded with my quote then I got the response below and got a little more suspicious...----------------------------HelloThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to MoboShipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch inSingapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight ofthe unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that theycan get you the shipping cost. below is my branch address:Banes Foundation 896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeThe contact email to Mobo Shipping Company ismslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contactthem now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you tobill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shippingcost.Best Regards.Michael Daley14 front stdanielson,ct,06239--------------------------------

We are a Print Company and had the same as the post before.Thank you for this blog!
I work at a Fire Extinguisher Company. Thank god i found this blog. We would have been taken for $11,000. Alan Smith14 Front StDanielson, CT06239Beware guys, he's a total scam artist. I've spoken to these people *on the phone* even, all from sketchy numbers that you can't call back. Terrible english, terrible spelling.
Myself and the local authorities played the game to see if we could catch these guys... The names was James Sizemore. BEWARE...You will be responsible for credit card charges that you run on your machine for phone orders without proper identification. Chech with your processor to see what specific rules apply to you.
Below is the letter that came from a sify.com email address (a major red flag to begin with).So far, I replied with link to my company pricelist, and said he had a 20% volume discount and let him figure it all out. He then asked for quote, which I just told him price + shipping.[His 2nd email asked for additional information, I told him to make his shipper do all of the work and get it from the company website and that I am deaf so can only use a special type of phone]Then he sent details about using his shipper and the other scam. I told him OK, but need a signed company purchase order emailed or faxed. He complained but said it was an export restriction. Eventually he cut and paste something together. I reported the credit card he gave me to the credit card company as stolen without even running it through. I emailed him back saying that he must have mistyped it and it was rejected.Now he has just sent me a 2nd credit card, and his "shipper" is asking for payment. I told the shipper that I am waiting for a card to go through, and am going home for the day, so I will have to do this tomorrow.--------------------------------- Hello, I am interested in purchasing some of your products, I will like to know if you can ship directly to NEW ZEALAND , I also want you to know mymode of payment for this order is via Credit Card. Get back to me if you can ship to that destination and also if you accept the payment type Iindicated. Kindly return this email with your price list of your products.. I await your quick response. Kind RegardsAlbert Grayson==================================(This after I gave him pricing and URL for pricelist)Hi,Thank you for the reply, please i will like you to recalculate of my order alone and get back to me with the total cost of my  order and don't worry about the shipping cost because i have my personal shipping agent in State:Alabama  Zipcode:36420   , USA that will come for  the pick up of the package in your company and i have inform them about this and they told me the best way to come for the pick up in your store is for you to email me with the information's needed below,* Your Company Name and Address ?* Time the package will be ready for pick up with your convenience time and date?* Contact Person for the pickup arrangement ?* Telephone Number ?* Weight of the packageSo, please kindly get back to me with this details along with the total of my order so that i can give you my card details for the payment now.Hope to read from you ASAP.
I knew it was a scam from the time I received the first email from this guy calling himself Patrick Gagnon. But I thought I would play his game and see where it would lead. Patrick Gagnon Inc 33 Leven Street, Invercargill, STL 9810 New Zealand Here is the letter I received I am Patrick and i am ordering from New Zealand.I want to place an order from you.Before i place this order,i want you to notify me if i am able to place the order and most important: If i can make payment with my credit card VISA/MASTER) because that is the only way we are set for payment without no delay.I don't place online orders,can i e-mail my ORDER needed then you can give me a quote here and make charges to my cards manually on your end?Please Clarify.Looking forward to your swift response then we can proceed further as soon as possible. Several emails have resulted with him increasing his order to about $5800 and my latest email is to contact his shipping company JAC LOGISTICS in the UK Thanks for the response.Am okay with the quote Before we proceed..However at this junction i will like to point out that UPS or other similar couriers services simply due to the incidence of tax duties , custom duties and all other payment they don't make things easy for us with the shipping and at the end of the day , We 'll have to pay for it when it comes here. I will employ that you contact the shipping company below because their Services are effective and efficient since they will be picking from your location, I will really appreciate if you can work with them to ship the items , we have work with them before when they got one of our shipments here for us without any problems , and one last thing is that they have all the needed license to full and adequately carry out their Services . Their contact information is below : JAC LOGISTICS Contact Name : Jacqueline Lee Contact person is : Jacqueline Contact email : jaclogistics1@aol.com Feel free to contact them via email , I have also emailed them , and i will prefer you contact them too to proceed and get the shipping quote for the order in time .Kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience. Thanks Patrick Gagnon So now i have sent him an email informing him that My brother who lives in New Zealand just about 6 hours away could deliver the products to him free of charge, since he will be in Invercargill for personal business next week. This is fun figured I would see how he wants to twist this LOL Waiting to see how he wants to handle payment. TC

I own an engraving business in Durango Colorado. I'm dealing with an individual from Singapore who wants to buy a large number of trophies to be shipped via MOBO Shipping Company. I know it is scam from the git-go and get these kind of emails regularly. I like to string these guys along as long as possible. I keep requesting additional info and clarifications from them. The idea is to waste as much of their time and resources as I can possibly get a way with. The final email I send to them is the one I send telling them that I have forwarded all their emails to their local authorities, the FBI, the CIA, Homeland Security and tell them that they are now marked as a terrorist sponsor and can expect a visit from the authorities at any time. . .. Good Luck living another 48 hours!
Today I was contacted by Michael Daley who wanted to buy 150 trophies and send them to Singapore. (I work with over seas companies) But to send trophies there??? I went through my normal question routine: To start your order we need a credit card number and expiration date, the wordage you would like to be engraved on each trophy and the sport you are interested in. The day you need your order and by all means your name and phone numberHe responded back with:HelloThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to MoboShipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch inSingapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight ofthe unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that theycan get you the shipping cost. below is my branch address:Maersk Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeThe contact email to Mobo Shipping Company ismslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contactthem now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you tobill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shippingcost.Best Regards.Michael DaleyI knew then it was a scam because we do not sell units, and never to Singapore. I also called the companies to put them on alert that scammers are giving out their information. Customer service was very nice and even verified that they do not have a Michael Daley working there. So now, a new scam has arisen. BE AWARE...
I got one too... Almost fell for it right before placing the order with the supplierGood day, My Name is Mr.Mark Wilson . l want to order some flyer's and i will need the Qty of 130,000 with the size of 8.5''x11'' in full copies Black Ink on yellow Paper l want you to write of the flyer's (Care For One Another Says The Lord).I need this flyer's to be printed one side and also I want you to go ahead and quote me the total pick up prices plus tax without shipping and kindly advise me the method of of payment you accept so that we can proceed with this order, hope to hear from you as soon as possible..Note: Let me know if you print banners as well.Stay Blessed,Mark Wilson
Don't feel bad, I was in all the way to the request for the MONEYGRAM for shipping.I actually spent an entire day doing the logistics , pricing etc.even on 500 banners. (by the way 4over.com best price on 500) I did this all while my gut said "Too Easy - Too good to be true"Looks like they are using a new freight company now."TNA International"Excerpted from e-mail:We will also like you to know that our company accept payment only from where pick up will be done and for you being the shipper you are the one supposed to make the payment to us this is because there will be a form which is going to be signed on the day of pick up when TNA INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT COMPANY is coming for a pick up at the pick up location and the units will be delivered to the door step of the company or the delivery destination.And for first time customers the method of payment we accept is via Money Gram to our financialmanager in our head quarters in Ghana.

I have a screen printing company for a couple of years now. I fella by the name of Michael Daley wanted to order 1500 t-shirts blank. Let me remind you I do not own a mill, I print among other things. He wanted 100 huge banners as well, 20x20. Also wanted to know if I take credit cards.So obviously this was a scam. I emailed him back why the hell do you want blanks from me, kind of pointless. I now email and harass the guy from time to time when I am bored. Payback from trying to scam me. email address: daley90@gmail.comHis shipping address:Maersk Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeHis "shipping" company:Mobo Shipping Company
I was just about scammed. I got an e-mail for 3000 t-shirts. Being a small business I got a bit excited. I noticed from the start the grammar was terrible. I told it was for a new orphanage in Ghana. Here is the name and address I was given.1 Methodist Kids Orphanage32 Trasaco ValleysAccra, GhanaThe e-mails came from Alid Mohammed (aildmohammed@gmail.com. When I did a search on MYSPACE the e-mail address belonged to a 15 year-old female. The e-mails were signed Rev. Mark Larry.He wanted me to send the shipping company he chose half the cost for the shipping and he would pay me back. The shipping cost was $7,520.00 for 882lbs. The shipping company said it included international airway taxes (I.T.A.), tariffs, crating/packaging and customs clearance duties. The only type of payment they would accept was money gram. They wanted to be sent to the financial manager. Here is the information they gave me for the shipping company.Financial ManagerHakeem Imrana2nd Ring Road CentralAccra, Ghana 00233Cargo Express FreightE-mail: dcargo@ymail.comI was able to get a phone number for Alid Mohammed; it is 233-543-568565. I did speak to him. He called me and I have caller ID.I hope this information will help.
I posted the last comment. He contacted me with 233-244-063099 phone number also. copied it from CID
Thank you for your warnings. Here is a copy of his acceptance of a freight quote: thank you ones again and i am ok with the $8,850.00 USD 2-3 days.so i need you to email me back with the total cost of your order and the shipping as one so that i can make the full payment as now . thank you larryA lot of typos and small caps. His new scam freight company is:kargoshippingcompany@gmailBeware.
Unfortunately they use this same scam for ppl selling stuff on ebay. Using the fake shipping company email they send letters on behalf of paypal to say items have been paid for and funds received, but that they won't be released or appear on the paypal balance until they have confirmed shipping and tracking details. In other words its send it and we will pay you later! Natural you should always check that you've been paid first before you send anything! These scammers seem to be in Nigeria mainly, so be asked to send anything there should be a major red flag in itself.
We received an inquiry on our products from someone.

I have had 3 emails from a Mark Larry this morning wanting to use a credit card to order over $3000 worth of coffee. Told him to mail check and if/when it clears, we will deliver unless he wants to pay cash. After the 4th email with him, seems like he might know I am not going to fall for it. So glad I saw your post on here and was able to "google" him.

Hello,I am a small printing company and was almost stung by Mobo and Michasel Daley. his email stated...HelloThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to MoboShipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch inSingapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight ofthe unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that theycan get you the shipping cost. below is my branch address:Maersk Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeThe contact email to Mobo Shipping Company ismslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contactthem now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you tobill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shippingcost.Best Regards.Michael DaleyThis nearly cost me my buisness..Thank you so much for your site.I do feel silly, but not stupid.Lisa
I too got an email similar to these. There are so many I couldn't read through them all. A red flag was raised when I offered a 30% discount on the large order and he said the regular retail price was ok to pay. I insisted on giving him the discount and when he gave me the shipping company I tried finding them online and that's when I came across your site. Thanks for posting this blog. His shipping address is to:Sister Margret Asante,c/o Continental Church Orphanage Home,673 Ring Road,Accra Ghana 00233,West AfricaI sell home and garden decor. He was asking for 200 Guardian Angel Clocks. Don't look like they are picky with what they request. A friend of mine got scammed for $6600.00 recently so I am a little more cautious which is why I did a search on the shipping company instead of just emailing them as he suggested.Sad part of it all is they are using God and orphans to scam people.

This is another one of the scams wanting me to use their shipping companies...I did not reply to this E mail.Hello,I will like to order some items from you and get it shipped to my place in Japan, also i will be paying via my creditcard which was issued in the United states as this is the only available means of payment. I have a shipper which you'll contact regarding shipping that can get the items delivered directly to my door step without hastle... and i will also like to know the types of creditcard you accept..... Let me know if i am welcome to place an order. ThanksRichard
We have also had an email enquiry for roof trusses for a church in birmingham, England, to be shipped 'via their wonderful company' to Ghana. We are a timber frame engineering company in Wales. i wonder if anyone knows of authorities we can send the suspects details to while the line of communication is still open?
It seems this scam has now reached the UK. I received an email with almost the exact same wording as one here, below. There were little things a bit off about it, like 'my, that's a heck of a lot of leaflets for a church!' and I quizzed him about his requested size, since here you'd say A4 size and not 8.5" x 11", but it wasn't until Singapore came up as the destination to deliver the 120,000 leaflets that major alarm bells started ringing. So I checked it out via good old Google - and thank you to this blog for confirming that it is indeed a scam!The shipping company he mentioned was MODEX INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COMPANY, one not mentioned on here before. They replied mightily quickly with a quote (£1,600+) once I supplied the weight details - within about 10 minutes. Funny that. Oh and yes, the client was insisting on paying by credit card and used a gmail account.-------------------Dear Sir/MadamMy Name is. Daniel Wilson l want to order some Flyers and I will need the Qty 120,000 with the size of 8.5''x11'' in full copies Black Ink on yellow Paper l want you to write of the Flyers  (Care For One Another Says The Lord).. and also I need this Flyers to be printed one side and also I want you to go ahead and quote me the total pick up prices plus tax without shipping and also Advise me the method of payment you accept so that we can proceed with this order, hope to hear from you as soon as possible.
Stay BlessedDaniel Wilson-------------------The delivery address was to be as in many above:New Mission Pentecostal Church,896 Dunearn Rd,#04-06B Sime darby Center,Singapore 589472 Singapore
My company was nearly scammed. We design custom hand-carved stone items, such as columns. Believing the initial inquiry was legitimate, I responded. After a few exchanges, I was given shipping instructions including an address in Accra, Ghana. This e-mail was identical to the e-mail cited in the Anonymous posting from April 14, 2009 12:20 PM above. The only difference is the e-mail address given for the shipping company was at live.com, not gmail.com. I'm toying with the scammer now, offering to use a local shipping company which is considerably cheaper than Smart Movers, and my phone began ringing off the hook as soon as I sent that e-mail. Rev. Larry Clark insists on using Smart Movers, though. What a surprise...
I have an online business selling magicians ropes. So whenever someone goes to my site to order or send an inquiry, the email comes in a different format. I received an email directly from someone asking about nylon rope (which i don't sell), I responded stating that i only sell cotton rope. He said fine, send me sizes and prices, so i did. I already knew from the initial email that this was no legit customer. Then he emailed me back saying he wanted 50 coils (5000 meters) of rope, didn't even haggle the price. And so now after searching his email address on yahoo I came across this site. his name is Michael Daley and his email address is daley90@gmail.com. I'll probably play along and mess with him just for fun...but i know this is no customer. Thanks for posting these fraud stories, it helps the little guys like us from getting screwed.www.BaronianTrading.com
We are an HVAC/Refrigeration company. About 9 months ago, the minister from Ghana emailed wanting some items sent, via his prefered shipping company, to his orphanage. Red flags were up but his credit cards were all clearing. We wised up and caught it before actually wiring any money. Funniest part was when he called wanting us to refund the funds charged to the stolen credit cards. The new one I received today was an email (same scam) asking for items to be sent to Singapore, with his prefered shipper "Mobo Shipping Company"
Thank god for google and this site. Thanks guys and gals. Just a thought, with all the money we have saved could we not send someone with a violin case around to 101 Goodwill St in Accra
These thieves of stolen credit cards and scammers are contacting healthcare product companies as well. I was sent two e-mails from supposedly separate individuals in the matter of a month trying to buy mass quantities of essntial oils.I haven't had the time to read all of the comments, so hopefully I'm not duplicating anyone's questions or thoughts....Is there a way to call up, let's say Visa, and tell them that you believe credit card fraud has taken place, and give them the credit card number, etc?I'd really like to report these vile criminals. Those who have been scammed deserve some justice, as well as those whose credit cards have been stolen.
A Ken Williams ordered with 5 different credit cards, which went through so far just one week though. Then he wanted me to send shipper money which he paid in advance with credit cards to a Motta Cole in England via Western Union money transfer. I refused to do that. I did a reverse address check of England address and it turned out not to be a shipper but an interior design co. The goods are to be shipped to Korea for $1,100. "Ken Williams" scammers name called yesterday 22 times. He gave a phone number for shipper 011-44-702-406-9977. The ship to address I did a reverse address lookup and it is a legitimate shop but not for similar product and wrong name-not Ken Williams. Will play this out. He used a yahoo email address and I did a reverse email lookup which says the email is from Little Rock AR. The man has an accent but an American name? Very suspect.

WE had exactly the same experience with a man named Ken Waddell.  I figured it out when he wanted us to pay the money for the shipping before we were even ready to ship.  And when the shipping co was in Ghana, it seemed suspicious.  I checked up on all the credit cards he was asking me to use and at least one was lost or stolen so we cedited the ones back we had charged out on and will not communicate with him again.

HAD THE SAME ISSUE!!!The customer was Ken Waddell and he was interested in a very large quantity of an item that I was going to special order for him.  Also told me that I'd collect the shipping fee from him and then pay the shipping company.  "TNA Shipping Co."  I then tried to look up the shipping company to contact them directly because they quoted me a shipping price of almost $5,000 to Singapore.  When I tried to look it up... this blog came up and I am SO THANKFUL. 

Someone by the name of Rev. Robert Clark (who sometimes spelled his own "FAKE" name wrong in the emails) was requesting price quotes from our company - insisting on COD & his freight company picking up merchandise at our facility. This is a scam - claims he's with the Presbyterian Church of God in PA.

We have a party store which provides linen.  We were contacted via email by Larry Bones wanting to purchase 450 pieces of linen.  The quote on this is approximately $17,000.  They wanted me to use TNA Shipping and the shipping address was UNICEF in Haiti.  Their US address given was 10 Front Street, New Haven, CT.  That US address is the same street address but different city and state as a previous scam complaint I am reading on this blog.  This is definitely a scam!!

I own a printing company and they just tried buying 120 banners from me shipping to:Maersk Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 Singaporebeing picked up by MOBO shipping company and their e-mail is mslaf_shipping_co@live.com When I asked for business address they gave me Banes Foundation,389 Edgeware Road,NW 2 L 6 LH Number: +44703 189 9621and when I asked for address in US he gave me 14 front st,Danielson,CT,06239I was a little skeptical so I googled the us address and came accross this blog.
I also run a printing company and he wanted to buy 100,000 flyers asking if I take credit card... I told him yes, and to send me his shipping address...HelloThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to MoboShipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch inSingapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight ofthe unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that they can get you the shipping cost. below is my branch address:Maersk Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeThe contact email to Mobo Shipping Company is mslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contact them now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you to bill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shippingcost.Best Regards.Michael Daley
We are a commercial kitchen, restaurant supply dealer in southeast FL. I have been quoting icemakers for "Michael Daley" to use the Mobo Shipping Company to be delivered to his branch in the very same Singapore address, company Maersk. He is waiting for my quote now! Thanks for the blog!
We are a manufacturing company that builds automation and design equipment. We were contacted via email from a gmail account, requesting 5 large machines at the cost of over 100k to be delivered to China. As a fairly new company this was an exciting prospect, yet we were inclined to think this was a hoax as our "client," who clearly had no real idea what these machines are designed to do, had no specific requirements on the machines' capabilities. Our emailer DID provide us a phone number, though it was a non-working number!He, too, asked that we would contact "TNA international freight couriers" to ship said machinery as he was located in CA and needed them delivered direct to China.After researching the freight company our suspicions were confirmed when this site popped up!We are stringing our "client" along, now, and in his correspondences he even spelled his last name wrong!Unbelievable!
Does the name Mark Hollis come up in any of these scam programs? We have been contacted by this person wanting to purchase some custom copper work to be sent to Sweden, picked up by a third party freight company. Sounds like he is calling from a telemarketing boileroom. We are very skepticle at this point.
Latest one in the UK is from a wayne johnson [wayne.johnson65@gmail.com], the delivery address is in Singapore and we were asked to print 130,000 flyers and send them them via TNA International Freight Couriers. Credit card details were supplied by Naome Hone [security442@live.com]. We tracked down the credit card owners (addresses supplied) and told them their card details had been probably been stolen and someone was trying to use them in a scam. Offered to help supply the police with further information when they report it to them - this may be a way to get the police involved...Hope the supplied email addresses helps someone!Mark Amos
