Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

Wow...SO VERY GLAD I SAW THIS!!! Just got an inquiry for a sizable order (for me at least), from TWILLAFORD Inc., Hungary, asking me to use ONETIME FREIGHT company. What made me suspicious was that she never asked for sizes or prices of my products. She also referred to one of my styles differently than I list them on my website. I call it Tri-sectional dish and she referred to it as 3-sectional Serving Tray. That is what I called it on my SQUARE storefront.THANK YOU!!!!!

My company received this one on July 28th: REQUEST FROM MARSHALL ISLAND From: Porter Johnny [mailto:gnsuplyinc@gmail.com] Sent: Tuesday, July 28, 2015 1:22 PM To: sales@XXXX.com Subject: Warm Greetings from (GNS) Order Inquiry Hello Sales, Warm Greetings from (GNS) We are interested in purchasing some of your products. let us know if your products are authorized to be shipped out of your country to Marshall Island? I also want you to know our mode of payment for this order is via Credit Card. Concerning the shipment, is it possible for us to assign a courier company who will handle and take care of the shipment from your premises? as we have a courier company whom we will like to recommend for the delivery. Kindly return this email with your Website. I await your quick response. After I baited him with a fake list of wholesale good Mr. "Porter Johnny" sent me the contact information for his "freight forwarder": Company Name : WorldStar Shipping Ltd. Contact Name: Sean Moloney E-mail: service@wssl-post.com
I played along and requested a shipping quote from "Mr. Moloney". Then I reported to Mr. Porter Johnny who did not seem to notice that I had doubled the amount of goods and added $ 1,300 to their price or that the shipping fees were outrageous. Next, his "financial controller" emailed me a US man's CC information including his address in the state of Washington. The sender's Gmail address used the name of the card holder to make it look legit. The financial controller wrote, "Do split charge the total cost in 3 seperate parts and charge due to limit per charge." I emailed that as a small business owner I needed a scanned copy of his driver's licence to verify that he was the real CC holder. He replied that he could not send me that document for privacy purposes but that my buyer Mr. Porter Johnny was going to email a copy of his passport and Marshall Island Certificate of Incorporation. The passport belonging to a 50 year old Brit called Johnny Porter looked genuine but the COI was a pathetic looking fake. After receiving the documents I waited a while then I emailed the financial controller that the CC had maxed out after I charged a few hundred dollars (the invoice total was more than $7,000). He apologized and sent me the CC information of a US woman living in Utah. I tracked both CC holders and verified that they had not allowed the transaction. I told them to alert their common CC provider, Wells Fargo Bank. After a couple of hours I emailed my scammer to tell him he was busted.

i got an email order from a customer named kevin smith, but his email is kelvinsmithvim@gmail.com, he wants to order 80 custom made frames, mats and plexi, doesn't care about price, wants a shipping company to pick them up, he said he is in Colorado and they will be shipped to Panama, seems so vague and fishy, he gave me a phone number, but i don't even want to call it. the shipping company is called Seaway Shipping Company Limited.

Was contacted by John Douglas in Cyprus as above dated Aug. 5. We have been contacted since that time and finally I told him his name and company name indicated his email was spam. Have not heard a peep back from him. Thanks for this blog. What really stood out is he would never say what product he wanted. It started out the same as above blog. Hi!

THANK YOU ALL FOR POSTING. My company, sports nutrition products, was contacted by James Smith from Titan Stores and asked to use JAC Logistics for shipping, Jacqueline Lee is the sole proprietor of JAC Logistics. We suspected this was a scam and wanted to expose it. We responded to James and told him that we could arrange the freight, door to door and all inclusive, at a significant savings. James said that they tried that before and they got stuck with duties and taxes. I told him my quote ensured no more than a 10% variance and he would still save money. He balked and said if we could not use JAC Logistics, then he couldn't do business with us. I was tempted to show him all the postings but prefer that he not change names. This way, others can be spared the pain. THANKS AGAIN TO ALL WHO TOOK THE TIME TO POST. August 18, 2015 Ralph
We were contacted today. James Westman out of San Diego. He wanted a bunch of cut plate. Said to contact a shipping company and do all this work. We decided it was bogus. Put in our block file.

BEWARE, at least one of the emails above is true and I just been contacted by a "Mr.Tobey Robertson, email paulrobert.robert@gmail.com, they even have a web site for tools which is probably fake and the business address does not exist, same goes for shipping company, same for order recipient. As always, if its too good to be true, it probably is. BEWARE, do your homework and cover your bases.
