Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

I got one from Alan Munn from Sid warehouse, smith st farmingdale, for 30 banners. The address on, google street wiew shows a Sid Harvey refrigeration supply- wholesale only. I knew it was a scam. 7/23/14
Attn: Sales Department, My name is Bill Smith with Sid's Warehouse,I write to inquire about 36 x 36 x 36 or 41 x 35 x 35 Bulk Bags. I will be glad if you can send me a quick pricing per unit on the Bulk Bags or send me a link to your available Bulk Bags to browse through Kindly advise on the type of credit cards you do accept for payment and also if you do accept pick up orders ? Kindly call to discuss options or probably send me an email with further questions based on the quote request. A prompt response will be greatly appreciated as I look forward to working with your company on the quote inquiry. Sincerely, Bill Smith Sid's Warehouse 480 Smith Street Suffolk County Farmingdale, NY 11735-1105 Ph : 631-247-6701
This is what I received: From: Bill Wiley [mailto:bill.wiley001@gmail.com] Sent: Tuesday, July 29, 2014 12:22 PM To: NOT MY E-MAIL Subject: Order Hello sir, I am Mr Bill Wiley and would like to order some(clock) Send me a price list and the size of the ones you have in stock and also advise if you accept credit card payment.looking forward to hear from you soon ....Mr Bill Wiley This is very typical. They want you to do all the work. Send them quotes for several items (in this case, clocks). I keep a file of names and items they have tried to order. Let me tell you what the obvious signs are: 1. Grammar and spelling are always atrocious. Syntax is even worse. 2. Usually in a big rush to get the order filled. 3. Often seem more concerned with what payment methods are accepted than cost. 4. Web searches on the names they use usually "bring up" several people; athletes and deceased clergymen seem to be favorites. Facebook account names are now becoming prevalent also. 5. NEVER want to ship by regular methods (UPS, FedEx, USPS). ONLY want to use their own shipping company. No legitimate company would be so insistent on YOU paying the shipping company. If the credit card is valid, the shipping company could use it just as easily as you can. Also, since the shipping charges are almost always outrageously expensive, why wouldn't these people go with a cheaper shipper? 6. Best method of getting rid of them: PLEASE NOTE:  This company will only ship items using UPS, FedEx, or the United States Postal Service.  Under absolutely no circumstances will we ship items using any other than the aforementioned 3 carriers.  If you wish to use another shipping company, you must make those arrangements yourself and pay the shipping company directly. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY. (You may have to tell them this a couple of times to finally gets through.) This is how they make their money, since they never pick up the goods they have ordered. The money from credit card charge goes to you, not them, so the only profit they get is that money you supposedly send to the shipping company. 7. If they claim to be buying for a church, you could also use the following phrase: Because of the prevalence of scammers alleging to be buying for churches, before we proceed any further, I need to know your address and the location of the church where the items are to be shipped.  I am sorry, but it should be no problem to provide that information.

Has anyone heard of worldshippers? Is it legit? I was offered a job as a package rep. Please advised.. I need employment but an honest job.
We just had a guy named BILL JOE (really? what a dork) try to purchase a bunch of our products, what led me to know something was up was the delivery address he claimed was in Stockholm, Sweden. The address was a VERY famous Coffee house listed (according to Google search) to be a Gay hang out! His email address was bigbilljoe@gmail.com. I won't bore you all with the letter, SSDD...But glad to see this site, It confirmed what I already thought. the person who handles the Internet side came to me with the email as I am the Network Admin for the company. But same deal- NOTHING on any internet search for Camp Courier Service, and the Scammer sent the Very same form letter to a lady on Facebook a few days ago.
Yep, he's (ROBERT MCCLANE - McClane Enterprises) gone back and forth with me on a few emails this morning. Luckily, I found this page. "Thank you very much getting back to me,I would like to proceed the order at the given price,Here is my contact details: Name: Robert McClane Company : McClane Enterprises Address : 750 B St Ste 1040 San Diego , CA , 92101 United States I am ready to make full payment for the order so that you can start working on them and have them ready but first I would like to recommend you to a freight company whom will be responsible for the pickup and shipment. Below is their contact detail and information about the order which you need to send to them so that they can quote you on the order. NAME OF SHIPPERS: Oriental Shipping and Logistics Contact Email: csorientalshippingco@outlook.com Website: www.orientalshippingco.com" Links don't works and there isn't a company by this name. What a jerk... wasting the time of legitimate business owners.

This is what was sent to me: Thanks you very much for the time and support in regards of the order and pricing.

And so can you go ahead and email the shipping company now and get the shipping charges and send me an email back with the total cost for the shipping and handling altogether so that i can pay for that also and then as soon as the order is ready they can come and pick them.. Best Regards Mr.James.....

Today my small business got the jerrypalmer01@gmail.com email. Last year, got the same scam from another guy. Both times, the emails sounded suspicious, & thanks to websites like this I was able to recognize the fraud right away. FORTUNATELY! The upside is: IT IS FUN TO MESS WITH THEM. There clearly is some guy sitting at a computer answering my questions. All day long, I can send emails (very polite, very appropriate) asking specific questions about the products they want to order. They continue to reply, all day long. I just started with Mr. Palmer today. He wants to buy syrups (my company produces dry spice seasoning blends). Mr. Palmer & I have exchanged probably 10 emails today in my efforts to try to clarify what kind of syrups he would like to purchase from a company that produces only dry ingredients. I just want to be sure he would be getting the product he wants, I would hate to have a brand new customer be disappointed, you understand. In our last email, I've offered to sell him mango powder and barbecue spice. Tomorrow should be fun. Last year, it was especially fun when we finally got to the shipping issue. B/c I would send reply after reply recommending alternate shipping companies for his overseas shipment. When we got to the discussion that payment for the order plus shipping needed to be one transaction, I recommended that he pay his shipping company for the whole thing, and have his shipping company send money to me (ASAP please, so that I can "process" your order!). The crazy thing is, even after this email, in which I figured I tipped my hand that I was on to him, that fellow continued to reply to my emails, as if this were a rational business discussion. I had to shut it b/c taking too much time. Fun in the meantime. It is so strange to carry on these emails as if it were real.
I really appreciate the emails posted here because it is very much like the ones I got. I don't understand how the scam works but at least I now understand that it is a scam... EMAIL #1: Hello, I'm interested in placing an order with you and I would like to know if you ship to Germany and accept credit card for payment. Your prompt reply will be greatly appreciated. Phil EMAIL # 2: Hello, I would like to place an order for the items below "Avatar Star" Tee......20 quantities "Since Always" Tee......20 quantities "Bolts" Tee......20 quantities "Fast Times" Tee......20 quantities "Woody Gray" Tee......20 quantities "Dirt Brains Charcoal" Tee......20 quantities "Weld It" Tee......20 quantities "Quad Wave" Tee......20 quantities "Side-by-Side" Tee......20 quantities "Self Reflect" Tee......20 quantities "Blown Heart" Tee......20 quantities Shipping Address........ PHILLIP MULLER Inc Gollierstrasse 29, 80339 Munich, Germany 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 a 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. Thank you and let me know when you have the quote from the shipping company and I will like you to copy me when you email them(pentagonairfreight@hotmail.com). I will need you to obtain a quote and get back to me with: COST OF THE ORDER COST OF THE SHIPPING VIA PENTAGON AIR FREIGHT TOTAL COST (ORDER SHIPPING) Once I have these details, I will get back to you with my credit card details immediately. so you can charge and make the necessary shipping arrangements. Thank you Phil OBVIOUS TIP-OFFS FROM ABOVE EMAILS: 1. "20 quantities" These are my printed shirt designs and usually one purchases shirts in specific sizes - S,M.L.XL, etc 2. I googled Pentagon Air freight and it exists but their email address is not a gmail account. 3. "Copy me when you email the shipper" sounds fishy to me. 4. He didn't ask for wholesale prices even though he's trying to order 220 shirts from my website. He was willing to buy over $5,000 of shirts to sell in an untested market? 5. The name Muller from Germany is mentioned on another post here but his name cannot be found by googling Phillip Muller, Inc. Hope this helps the next person receiving an order "too good to be true."
Thank you soooo much for posting this. I got almost the exact same email (except it had my products listed)from this guy. It is a little different than the other scams out there so I wasn't sure if it was for real or not. Now I know! I simply don't have the time to mess around with bogus/fraudulent email orders. Thanks again!
On July 31st got email from "Phillip Muller, Inc" wanting to buy my products. Used exact working as posting above (Aug. 7, 2014)complete with exact same grammatical errors! "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 a 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 PENTAGON AIR FREIGHT for the shipping quote (pentagonairfreight@hotmail.com). I will need you to obtain a quote and get back to me with: COST OF THE ORDER COST OF THE SHIPPING VIA PENTAGON AIR FREIGHT TOTAL COST (ORDER SHIPPING)" I filled out a complaint with FTC and will break off contact with this guy. Fortunately I am only out some time--no items or money. Thanks for your emails! Anonymous, August 21, 2014
Hi there I have just been contacted by Charles Foster who wanted to order £1500 worth of incense sticks to be shipped to Argentina. However, he had first contacted me saying that he wanted 50 units, then 5 units then eventually £1500 worth. He would not give me specific details and I thought it was suspicious. Then he called me and asked how many I actually had in stock. I told him 100 and he said "fine send them first and then we can arrange for the bigger order". He also asked me to contact Rena Shipping for a quote. The 100 incense weighed 3kgs but the quote for shipping was £450! I am so glad that I googled Rena shipping and came across this site. I have now deleted all their emails and hope I will not hear from them again. Is there anywhere where they can be reported? Beware. Richard Carnill

Here's another one - from a Lao Aiko wanting 200 bottles of our e-juice - largest size - one flavor - didn't even tell us what PG/VG/Nic he wanted - said he needed to pay by credit card - no Paypal, Bank Transfer using his shipper deliverywaysshipping.com@live.com as he had problems getting deliveries there from anyone else - gave another address in Tokyo for a Mitsukoshi Nihombashi, main store 1-4-1, Ni.Chou-Ku, Tokyo Downtown East 114-0021 - sounded legit until I found his shipper wanted $3499 to ship the product and so I called DHL and they ship there all the time - with no problems - total cost to ship there was $801.

Hello , Yes our glass company got scammed by a south African man named ROBERT WILSON who was ordering glass to go overseas to GHANA SOUTH Africa but there were lots of questions in the back of my mind with his order, we did some internet checks but came up no go. We put our trust in him (Big mistake)There were 3 of them Brian Cooper ,Mark Anderson, Robert Wilson. The FREIGHT COMPANY was also a scam. Their so called name was Victory Shipping and agency ..For anyone who doesn't know the scram its not the stolen credit card money they want its the shipping money you pay them. Because if they use stolen credit card money the banks will know in due time. Some times to late like me. WE WILL NEVER TRUST ANOTHER SOUTH AFRICAN EVER AGAIN. JUST IF YOUR WONDERING HOW MUCH HE GOT FROM US $6100.00 NOT HAPPY JANE.....
I have a friend on face book it's been 3 week since we get to know each other. He told me he is working on a ship as one of the director. He compliments me on my photos posted on face book. Three days earlier He told me the ship which he is working have encountered some problem and they received a warning that there are pirates waiting for them 250 meters away. Being a director he can't just get off with the passengers. He told me to send my address, email id and contact number for him to send the money he saved in his vault for safety. He send it with ARAB COURIER COMPANY LIMITED (arabcargocouriercompanyltd@gmail.com)and paid all international charges so that i will only pay $450 for local charges. The shipping company just called me up earlier demanding for local charges so that they can deliver the luggage by tomorrow. They even sent me the air way bill to photocopy because they need it when they arrive in my place to ensure that i'm the right receiver. I was just about to send the money but i think of some kind of scam. So thankful i read this article.
We received an order from a Mr John Reading. The items are the most expensive on our price list and are not usually bought for export and in such quantities. He insisted that we use his shipper and had to pay them directly. After payment to the shipper, he placed another order with the first still at our offices. Now he wanted to get the amount so that he could pay and collect the two together, the same products in bigger quantities. Whatever questions we ask, he does not answer, the shipper sent an invoice with their name spelled incorrectly amoung other mistakes. His emails have bad English and he constantly phoned to urge us to work faster and pay. His credit card was used for the payment. We said we were not willing to pay his shipper again, and we were not going to use his credit card, he had to do a Swift transfer, whereupon he cancels his first and second order. He wants us to pay him back into the account of the shipper. We are still at the stage of not doing anything and not repaying unless his shipper can pay us back first, something he insists is not possible. He was even going to refer us to a friend named Paul Livingstone from Mongolia! Be aware and do not pay a shipper directly, play by the rules of your company, do not be bamboozled into doing what you know is wrong.
I just experienced someone trying to pull the same scam: here are the emails from a Bernard White: email one Dear Customer. My name is Mr Bernard White and i am sending this email in regards to the order some Bearings and i will need a price on Size 6201ZZ , 6200ZZ , 6001ZZ , 6300ZZ , 6000ZZ also i will like you to email me back with the sizes along with the prices info that you have in-stock Or you can order for me so that i can choose the one i will need along with your full contact name and contact phone numbers so that i can give you a call to place the orders..Awaiting... Best Regards Mr Bernard White email two Thank you for the email and i am individual and i will need 500 pieces of each and it will be pick up at your location so i want you to go ahead and send me an email back with the total pick up cost plus sales tax so that we can proceed with the order..Awaiting... Bernard.. email three Dear , Thank you once again for getting back to me with the total cost for the order. I have considered the total cost as $4,797.34 and I think it is OK with me.So I would like to proceed with the payment.But However I need the Bearings for my New Company in Trinidad, Tobago. But as I stated earlier I want it to be picked up from your location so I would like to recommend you to a Shipping Company who will come to your dealership and pick-up the Bearings from your location when it's ready to be pick up and shipped because at the moment I am in a business conference in Ontario,CANADA and I will be coming back to where I live in a couple of weeks. Therefore I want you to contact the Shipping Company with the Quantity, Total Weight and the Pick-up location or Point of Pick-up in order for them to get you the Freight charges quote. After you contact them and get the freight quote, I will make full payment to you so that you will go ahead and place the order and they will send an individual shipper who will come to your dealership to contact you personally. Below is the Shipping Company's email for you to contact them : Name : Easy Freight And Shipping Company Limited Contact Name : Mr Apata Contact Email address : easyfreightforwardding@gmail.com Contact Number : 800-433-0692 Below is the shipping address where the Package will be delivered: Mr. Thomas Varela Fountain Mission 22-27 Cresent Dr Gopaul Lands. Trinidad - 658-2629 When you contact them with the details, they will get back to you with the freight charges and you let me know the total so that i can make full payment for the shipping as well. I will be waiting for your email so that we can finalize everything. Thank you, Bernard White Then he called and told me to email the shipping company, to not call them just email! This made me suspicious, so i Googled the freight company and found this site. Thanks for saving me from a huge mistake!!!

I just feel terrible for the companies that fall trap to this. Below is what this loser sent me.

This must be an age old scam. Usually I can spot them due to the oddly phrased English but they ( the scammers) must be getting more sophisticated. Here is a copy of the fruadster's email request to us : From: Tim Harris [mailto:timharris8305@gmail.com] Sent: Wednesday, August 20, 2014 4:52 AM To: info@XSportsProtective.com Subject: Order Request Hello, Below are my details: Company Name: Opportunity Supplies LLC 5005 126th Ave N, Clearwater, FL 33760 Please advise a quote for the following excluding shipping charges: Triple Eight EP 55 Elbow Pads (Pair) Quantity: 100 pairs Regards Tim Personally, I am so sick and tired of dealing with Internet scammers-we need to collectively be aware and vigilant and take em out at the knees at every opportunity.
"James Westerman" is currently trying to purchase 300 pounds of chocolate from my wife's store.
The point of the scam is this: The "customer" places a very large (tempting) order for delivery to some distant part of the world. They then ask you to use their preferred shipper. You are asked to get a quote from the shipper and to add the shipping cost, which are usually in the region of £2000 to the cost of the goods. They then pay the full amount using a credit card but ask that you pay the shipper out of that money. The catch? The card is stolen and when the bank catches up with it, you have the money taken off you, you've lost the stock you sent and you've shelled out thousands to the shipping company too. It's a stinger! I have since told him that I do not ship goods with anyone other than a reputable USA based shipping company or courier. Needless to say I haven't heard back. My only concern was that when I read about this scam online, it was for shipping to places like Haiti, Ghana, Phillipines and across the States.
This is similar to some above, but has some additional company information that they used. Did not chase it down to determine if they are using a real companies name for the scam or not, but wanted to get it here in case someone else searches it down.
