Robert AS Postboks 3, Sandsli N-5861 Bergen, Norway {"And this is the contact for the shipping as well: Name Of Company: Coast to Coast Freight Limited. Email: coasttocoast.shippers@hotmail.com The freight company will be at your location for pick up.As soon as you hear from them i will appreciate if you can email me with the shipping cost so i can proceed with both payments.Hope this not a problem. knnth bauer"
I also received scam emails similiar to these. My question is how do you handle it? what if they are legit and you turn potential customers away? (Had that happen too, thinking it was a scam and it was not). What I did was simply reply with my quote and insist that I use the shipping company that I deal with and have an account with. This usually ends the pursuit. Afterall why whould I deal with an outside shipping company anyway?

I received an e-mail from my web site from a Nick Brown, wanted me to quote 40pcs. Of 1/4" tempered glass, I gave him a quote and he responded that he wanted to process the order with me and gave me a name Andy Lee from Dropship Victory Cargo Company OR Dropship Cargo Company Ltd. dropoceanshipping11@outlook.com, he wanted me to give them the size, thickness and quantity of glass also the weight, for a quote and e-mail him with those figures so he can give me a credit card payment, what alarmed me was the shipper wanted payment by Money Gram, Western Union or transfer the money before they send me documents and before they pick up, then I Googled and found this site.

This was received on the 25th of August 2014 from lewishyder@gmail.com Hello Sales/Customer Service, I want to place an order with regards to spraying guns,please could you send me types and prices for the ones you carry for sale. I look forward to your respond. Thank you Hyder Lewis I have been having fun with this guy for days, from day dot I knew it was a scam. But ... why cant we have fun with them for a change. I am making "Hyder" work for his assumed win. Will never receive goods from me, he can live in hope. I have him hooked and baited. But have advised the fraud squad, a number of web pages and the address he gave me has been warned as well. Sellers:1 Scammers:0
OLIVIA MCGERGOR olivelivestore@yahoo.com rapidandspeedfreightllc@gmail Places a large order from an online store and requests that the order be paid for with a stolen credit card and that this same credit card be charged by the online merchant to pay a fake freight company (Rapid and Speed Freight & Container Services Ltd) with a MoneyGram for supposed shipment of the goods ordered. The scam is getting the online merchant to charge the stolen credit and then use cash to send a MoneyGram to Rapid and Speed Freight & Container Services Ltd for shipping a large online order. When the funds are received for shipping, everyone disappears.
We are a commercial printer in Denver. A Perry Ross contacted us wanting 60,000 8.5 x 11 flyers printed and shipped to a church in the Netherlands. we were to use their recommended shipper, Ocean Drive International Shipping Company. We did our research, found the shipping company didn't exist, and then found this blog. No deal!
I just one from a Jon Johnson asking me to ship items to Gem Drill & CO INC 424 Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 100-8088, Japan Than he asked me to contact a shipping company by email worldwideglobalshipping@gmail.com and ask for Mark Anderson tell him i recommend you to contact them...... What shipping company has a gmail account. Serious they need to think this out a little better if they want to scam you. I just told them if they want the items they will have to organise and pay for the shipping themselves. I haven't received anymore emails since telling them to pay for it themselves.
I did a google search on the email address (FaithCarter@hotmail.com) that the following scam email came from. I suspect it's the same people who got my email address from a site such as monster.com came across this forum. -------------------------------------------------------- Good afternoon Timothy ********, My name is Eric Owens, I'm one of executives with the HR Dep.
