Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

I had a email from a Christian Lovebridge (jricch@gmail.com) asking for a quote for banners along much the same lines as the above scam attempts. The email had a phone number (Tel:8005718141 ext 3) which didn't seem to be associated with any legitimate business.I provided the quote with heavily inflated pricing to see if it would be accepted. This individual phoned back and questioned me about the pricing, and when I refused to alter the quote I heard no more about it. I began to doubt and thought perhaps I had chased away a legitimate customer, but just now found the name associated with an older scam attempt.
I have a new twist on the scam. We manufacture swimming pool scoreboards, and Curt Thompson wanted to order our most expensive product @ $52K+. The original address he gave was in Woodland, CA. After providing the initial quote, he asked me to get a quote for shipping the order to the Bowell School at 896 Dunearn Road, #04-06B Sime Darby Center, Singapore 589472 from TNA International Freight Couriers (tnafreightco@live.com or tnafreightco@consultant.com). I looked for the school name on Google and Bing and found nothing, But the address showed up in Bing as a personal residence. I asked him to confirm the address and he said it was a new school just being set up so there was no web site yet. He said he would pay for the order by credit card. I was suspicious but since we require 50%down with the order for all international shipments, I decided to play along for a while longer. I sent the request for the shipping quote and got a reply quoting $27,741 for shipping. The RED FLAG was that the freight had to be paid in advance by wire transfer to a company in Ghana. I Googled the freight company name and found your blog. I'll be reporting it to the Fed's as you recommended. Thanks for your vigilance!
Very useful infrmation posted. ore details about shipping companies vsit below website.List of Shipping Companies

They tried to get us too... He wanted to order 4,000 Mugs to be Shipped to Singapore via TNA International Shipping. (ha TNA). NICE TRY WAYNE!!!
Our company was contacted via email by "Curt Thomson" who wanted 4,000 11 oz. coffee mugs imprinted. He agreed on the price that I sent him. Read below: Hi, thank you for your response.However,am okay with the quote and will like you to proceed with the shipment.I will like to recommend you to TNA INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT COURIERS for the shipping of the units to our newly executive office branch located in Singapore and will like you to email them with the total weight of the units together with the pick up and delivery address , so that they can get you the shipping cost. below is my branch or delivery address: Bowell Corporation Inc896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 Singapore and below is also the contact information of TNA International Freight Couriers INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING DEPARTMENT: PERSON TO CONTACT:MR JAMES MILLER SHIPPING COMPANY'S CONTACT EMAIL ADDRESS: tnafreightco@live.com and tnafreightco@consultant.com i will like you to go ahead and contact them now and get back to me , so that i can provide you with my credit card for you to bill it for the total amount of the units together with the shipping cost , i would be looking forward on hearing from you soon. best regardsCurt Thompson I want to thank all the other bloggers. These crooks need to be stopped. After reading his response email to me, I became cautious, and took a 2 second research and proceeded to find this glassblog. Shame on them and good for us. Warning to all others, "let the seller beware"

I just got the exact e-mail, but to use World Express Freight, who is ligit. The name contacting me is Scott Walter with the Deva Co. exact same address!

Thanks so much for the warning!

We got the same scam in our internet business. The shipping company he wanted the wire transfer to go to was Mindex Express. Which when googled never comes up. Your blog does not come up when Mindex Express is googled but it probably should.
January 26, 2010 This Curt Thomson has contacted our company ordering 4,000 and then liking the price, doubled the order to 8,000 11 ounce coffee mugs. I priced him but felt uneasy about the emails. I asked him for his phone number so we could talk but when I called him, the message was this was a Magic Jack phone number. When he contacted us at first, his address was in CA. Today, when he emailed his shipping address and the freight line company, the shipment was to go to Singapore. I sent an email to him stating we must talk by phone. I haven't heard from him since. Just as I was ready to leave from work tonight, I looked up tnafreightco and found this scam warning. Thank you so much!!
I was contacted by Chris WhiteChris & Sons14 Front StreetDanielson, CT who was lookign to purchase 150,000 bumper stickers. Wanted to use TNA International Shipping LTD to send the shipment to:896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 SingaporeHe repeatedly asked for the total amount so he could issue credit card. All the emails were what i would consider broken english. allof this raised the red flag and i started googling the freight carrier, the address, anyting i could and found this site. total scam
We were targeted by a Reverend Ricky Smith of "Presbyterian Church of God" with the shipping company of Dolphin Shipping Agency. They wanted 70 banners (about $5000 of product) shipped to Ghana. The name given with the shipping agency was Patrick Korang. Same thing, trying to give you a credit number to use. Didn't care about seeing a preview of the product first. I googled the shipping company. It may or may not be legit. Then I googled the name Patrick Korang and ANOTHER shipping company name came up as well as this website so I knew it was a scam. This just happened today.
James Hackman sent an email requesting a quote for curtains that my business supplies at 11pm last night. These are special custom curtains used in medical facilities. He wanted to pay with credit card, but use his shipper. His shipper was the World Classic Shipping Co. This website looks legitimate, but no one ever answers the ONE phone number listed. There are no addresses listed. So, I questioned the shipping website. "Evelyn" emailed me with a quote of $1500 to ship to the goodwill street address in Arica, but said their policy was to have shipping paid by me. THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS WITH BUSINESSES! Shipper was having a hardship with credit card accounts and needed a money order from western union from me. Shipping was too much, Africa was questionable for this type of product, gmail account, etc. Joy lin foundation address brought me to this site. Thank you so much for continuing this blog and saving me thousands of dollars.

We were done. He claimed to be English!! Dr Robert Mills. The freight company they used was "Express Way Shipping Comapny". They are getting more cunning with phone calls every day to different sales staff, accounts people customers service. The buggers intiminate staff by threatening to take the business elsewhere when we suggesting payment methods appart from cash payment via Western Union. The Police and Banks do not investigate overseas fraud. In fact the person rang me whilst I had the Police in our office investigating but they have no interest. I asked the Police man if he wanted to talk to the guy! I introduced him as our logistics manager!!! He declined. I am just playing the game now and leading Mr Robert Mills on keep saying we will pay more and he just keep ringing day in and day out. Hopefully this distracts him from getting some other poor victum.Our solution never pay cash for services, and never accept credit card payment from overseas. What gets me is the back does not even check the name on the card when verifing! All the cheack is the card number and teh expiry and if there is clear funds it is approved. Think a quick name check could not hurt.Anyway look back the scam is that obvious and has so many reg flaggs we feel stupid for being caught and cannot blame the bank!!
We recieved a relay call at our pizza place they wanted 120 pizzas plus 950 for their shipper agent. I played along and got a cc number and called my credit card company and they gave me a number to call so I called Citi and they let me talk to the real owner of the card and of course he did not order the pizzas or need money for his shipper agent. I have since emailed the scammer cjenna01@yahoo.com and told them the card was declined and I need another. Hopefully they will send another card number and I can prevent someone else from being scammed.

Thank you very much for this blog, I suspected it was a scam but I wanted to be sure by second message. This is what we got:=====================================Hello Antonello,Thanks for the response. Our retails store name is Gordan Mark Inc we are located in Darling Harbour, N.S.W. 2000, Australia. We do not have a website yet and we only sell domestic. Below are the items list needed.Shipping Address.........Name of Company: --- Gordan Mark IncShop 320, Harbourside, Darling Harbour,N.S.W. 2000, AustraliaConcerning the shipment, 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 we don't want to experience such a thing again. We will be glad if you contact this shipper Mindex Express Freight for the shipping quote. Here is there email address( mindex_express@hotmail.com Or mindex_express@rocketmail.com ), Note that we can't deal with the shipper but they always deal with the company where they will be doing the pick up in other to reduce the customs duties and other charges down here in Australia. By indicating in the paper works that the payment was received by the shipper from the point of purchase, it will reduce the charges and if we(owner of the goods) wanted to pay for the custom duties and other charges, at times it is more than the whole package amount. We do trust MDE and if we didn't wouldn't have ask you to contact them in the first place. They are very reliable and fast. They will take care of everything including handling, customs and duties,Tax, insurance etc. Always send us the copy of email you send to them. We will be looking forward to see the total cost of the order with the shipping quote from MDE so that we can send you the credit card details for the payment Hope to see your mail soon.Thank youJeff=====================================
I am so glad to find this site!! I work at a furniture store in Santa Fe, NM. I have been working with "Wayne Johnson" via email for a week or so. I quoted him a price (a LOT of money) for ten conference room tables shipping to Bowell Corporation in Singapore via TNA Freight. Thank you so much for saving us a lot of money and headache!!
I work at a restaurant in Wisconsin. A request came in via relay operator for food to be shipped to Chicago, IL; the order to be paid with a credit card; and for us to send a money order to a New York shipping compnay. It seemed unusual and after finding this blog, we will not be doing business with this party. Thank you for helping us avoid a scam!
Thank you for this blog! I googled the name 'Michael Daly' upon the first email I received, but only turned up that there was a Michael Daly 'alternative health therapy' business in Queensland which corresponded with where he said he was from. The emails were very sophisticated (no spelling errors), although brief, but I have had honest customers who are brief before... It was when I received the email regarding using their shipping company in Singapore that I googled the shipping company and came across your blog! thankyou! I am in the contemporary jewellery business. Below is the email I received re: shipping: Thank 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.MichaelSent from my iPhone

We received an order this week from Rev. Ricky Smith as well. It was the exact same email, except he was asking for stickers.We replied with a cost, and he gave us a contact from a shipping company, but I checked the company's website and the email address didn't correspond with the other addresses on the site. This prompted us to do a little research and we found this site. Glad we didn't go through with it!
Also, this is the information he gave us:Company Name: Dolphin Shipping AgencyContact Name: Mr. Patrick KorangContact Email Address: dolphinshippingagency@live.comShipping Address: Villa Tomang Baru A1/32-33,Kuta Bumi - Tangerang, Banten,Indonesia

We only sell through our representatives and we have no "store" that you can pick up our equipment. We received an email today. When I asked him for his address and phone number so a rep could contact him, he was out of the country. I told him I would need an address to forward him to the proper representative and he sent back: 14 Front St.,Danielson, CT 06239. A child could type proper English better than this guy!Larry Bones Good day,My name is Mr. Larry Bones and I will like to know if you can supply some Heat Sinks for me, its going to be picked up at your store location when parked for pick up, after payment. I will like to know the types of heat sinks you do have in stock with the model and sizes too so that I can make my choice, and also let me know if you do accept credit card as a method of payment also, wish you all the best in business and i would be looking forward on hearing from you soon.best regards, Larry.

 We have just gone through the same scam. The customer tried to use 3 credit cards, one went through, for his purchase. He suggested that we use his freight company to ship out of the country. We tried to be accommodating and took all the information. Once the payment cleared the credit card it became urgent that we pay the freight company before the equipment arrived because it would take several days to get things arranged. They didn't seem very concerned about delivery any longer. The freight company didn’t change their quote after I changed the weight and dimensions on the shipment. The cost of the shipment was a third of the total selling price, just about $3000.00. When I received the invoice from the freight company, I Googled the name (no luck) and then the address. That is when I pulled up this blog, thank goodness. The contact had been calling every hour to find out the status of the payment to the shipper. After reading this blog I waited for him to call again. I told him that our company insisted that we use our own contracted freight forwarder and not his. In his next breath he said to cancel the order, but send him back his credit card data. There were lots of red flags from the beginning on this purchase. Namely not one person we spoke with had a "real" or company e-mail address. We end up with a surplus of equipment we can use over time, but we aren’t out any money, just man hours. 

Here is another version, luckily I told my boss about these spams. Hello Owner,                  Am Mr.Gary Bismark,and am inquiring about some Strollers,Diapers,Baby Carriers,Diaper Bags and Stroller Blankets.At the moment i will like you to send me an e-mail with some few list on the one's you got in stock with there prices.Or email me back with your website for me to view the type.After that I'll show the type and Quantity i want to order.And also let me know the type of credit cards you do accept as payment.Thank you and waiting to hear back from you soon.Kind regards.Mr.Gary Bismark.

I got the same scam from the same person.  I had a few minutes, so I played with him a bit:  -----------------------------------------Hi Wayne,That sounds good.  I'll have my administrative assistant contact you with the details.  And provide you with the wire transfer information.  Please provide the name of the freight company.    I wish we could take credit cards, but unfortunately, the criminals have ruined it for us.  I'm sure that you, like me, wish the dirty criminals monther's would have stopped the criminals before they were born.  At least the criminals will spend eternity in hell.  It serves them right and it's what they deserve.Oh well.  We'll be in touch.  ---------------------------------On Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 3:37 PM, wayne johnson <wayne.johnson65@gmail.com> wrote:What do you mean by dirty criminals?---------------------------------Obviously you're not one, but there are way too many dirty criminals who use stolen credit cards.   Or, they'll send too much stolen money in advance, and ask for a Western Union/Wire Transfer back.  Then the legitimate company loses the money.  It causes legitimate businessmen like you and I extra problems.   For example, we can't take credit cards for high amounts, or new customers or overseas orders.    Those dirty criminals will spend eternity in hell, and never should have been born to begin with.  The world would be a much better place if they had never been born.  They are lower than my dog's feces or the sole of my shoe.On well, I'm glad that you and I don't need to worry about that.   I'll have my admin send you a quote so you can send a wire transfer.    Obviously, I'll deduct the wire-transfer fee from the order.------------------------------------------------------------------------On Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 4:03 PM, wayne johnson <wayne.johnson65@gmail.com> wrote:I see,unfortunately a wire transfer is not possible at this time.Wish we could do a wire transfer but i dont see it to be a possibility at this time. 

Same deal here. I got an email from wayne Johnson requesting 2000ft of hose. We get a few of these type of scams each year. Dean,              thanks for the prominent response,i think am okay with the total cost.However,i will like to recommend you to  AMAL FREIGHT INTERNATIONAL LLC   for the shipping of the units to our newly established project  branch located  in Malaysia and will like you to email them with the total weight of  the units together with the pick up and delivery address , so that they can get you the shipping cost. below is my branch or delivery address: New Mission Foundation Center  No. 70, Jalan SS 15 / 4, Subang Jaya,47500 Petaling Jaya,Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia and  below is also the contact information  of   Amal Freight International LLC       INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING DEPARTMENT:     PERSON TO CONTACT:MR BRUCE SMITH     SHIPPING COMPANY'S CONTACT EMAIL ADDRESS:       amalfreightint@live.com Or  amalfreightint@cooltoad.com And so i will like you to contact the shipping company as soon as you can and send me an email response feedback with the total cost for the units, shipping altogether so that i can make full payment to enhance better transaction for the first time.

Just got finished with this piece of work. I played with him for a week to see where it was going to go. We had near constant contact for a week. I enjoyed the fact that he was actually anticipating nearly $18,000.00 in illegal gains. He finally instructed me to use 2 credit cards and charge each of them until the order was filled. I waited a bit and then replied that all transactions require a bank wire transfer. Goods are shipped when the money clears............Funny, i have not heard from him since.

Thanks for your warnings.  We received a similar email which we spotted as a scam.  The contents follow without alteration. From: larry bonesSent: Sunday, March 27, 2011 11:04 PMTo: undisclosed-recipients:Subject: Order  Good Day ,Mr. Larry is my name and i want to know if you carry ( Tiles ) if Yes i will like to place an order and if we decide to purchase we shall be in business with you... Kindly send me pricing and brands so that i compare and make a final sale... Exclude shipping from quote since unit will be picked up from your Store/Company and i will also like to know where you located ???Best Regards

I just received the same scam email (building materials, credit card, etc.) from a "Mr." Wayne Johnson ... You can usually smell the scam whern the scammer's is referred-to as "Mr." or "Mrs." in their own introduction. I would guess he/she is based on Australia -- based on the diction and style.

We received a request for plants to be shipped to Australia. We are glad we saw some red flags and checked this out. Thanks for posting about FAKE SHIPPING. We saved $4800 from being scammed from us.Thanks for the response. Our retails store name is:Gordan Mark Inc we are located in Darling Harbour, N.S.W. 2000, Australia. We do not have a website yet and we only sell domestic. Below are the items list needed.

Charges like handling, customs and duties etc. We have experienced such situation before and we don't want to experience such a thing again. We will be glad if you contact this shipper BN Express Freight for the shipping quote. Here is there email address( bn_express@hotmail.com Or bnexpress@rocketmail.com ), Note that we can't deal with the shipper but they always deal with the company where they will be doing the pick up in other to reduce the customs duties and other charges down here in Australia. By indicating in the paper works that the payment was received by the shipper from the point of purchase, it will reduce the charges and if we(owner of the goods) wanted to pay for the custom duties and other charges, at times it is more than the whole package amount. We do trust MDE and if we didn't wouldn't have ask you to contact them in the first place. They are very re liable and fast. They will take care of everything including handling, customs and duties,Tax, insurance etc. Always send us the copy of email you send to them. We will be looking forward to see the total cost of the order with the shipping quote from MDE so that we can send you the credit card details for the payment Hope to see your mail soon.Thank youMichael Spinmichael_Spin@in.com
We've been contacted 2 times this year already. The first time I thought it was legit and provided an actual quote. In the following emails, I realized that it was a total scam, so I stopped corresponding with "the Rev". This most recent time, I quoted an outrageous price just to mess with him, and he wrote back saying he was willing to pay and gave me all the shipping company info. When I googled the address of the church in Singapore, this site came up. I'm now going to email all of the print shops we work with in this area and give them a heads up. Thank you!
I have a Trophy and awards business, just got an email for about $4000.00 of product for a church in South Africa, anyway all of the similar things all the rest have been saying. all be carefull, wish i knew where else I can show this

i have gotten 3 of these over the last 2 months. this started when we started using Thomas.net and started to get some internet hits. we did not get scammed as i request all orders form out side the USA to be prepaid and the product will ship 14 days after payment clears. most companies understand this and will accept these type of terms on the 1st overseas orders. scammers will not and normally will stop asking after the 3rd attempt. new companies need to beware of this when starting internet sellingafter a few emails back and forth with the scammer he admitted it was a scam and asked me to stop e-mailing him.
Hello,We recently carried out some work on our web site promoting it to various search engines but used a specific email address of seo@ which was the email address that was used. We are a fireplace company who sells fireplaces and accessories both online and in our shops. I am amazed that somebody has taken the time to target us with such a specifically targetted email.Here is a copy of the email that was sent to us -Hello sales, Good day ,This is Mr. John Larry.In Regards to your company i will like to know whether you carry Fireplace ( Wood Burning Fully Installed,Or Gas Fireplace)in stock for sale. If yes, email me back with the price base for each Fireplace.And also let me know the types of fireplace you have in your company,So that i can get back to you with the types and quantity i will be ordering from your company.... More over I will like to know whether you do accept credit card as the method of payment.... Hope to read from you again....Stay Blessed.Kind regards John... A few alarm bells but we hoped it was a real enquiry. I then searched the buyers name and came across your blog so thank you.I will try to notify everybody that I know of this nasty wasteful scammer.Thanks.Mike
My company was just contacted to ship our product to Singapore. He was using the name Michael Daley and the scam was essentially the same. His English seems to have improved though.
