Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

We had the same, just these days: the customer is James Michael and he wanted to have children furniture delivered from Holland to Cambodia (receiver would be TIMAS RESOURCES LTD No.#15C, Str.331,Boeung Kok II, Toul Kok,Phnom Penh, Cambodia.. He wanted us to use his own transporter: Shipping and Cargo LTD and there is a wordpress.com website: http://shippingandcargoltd.co.uk He even called us to discuss details, he was barely understandable and from a secret number, of course... A whole week of wondering: is this real, is this fake... Now it's clear, thanks to this blog forum. No money loss, just some invested time...
A church was created with the pensive that if Indiana’s new law protected fastidious practices, then it should also permit marijuana utilize as part of a broader devotional philosophy.
World Wide Global Mail is another scam company. The customer paid via credit card, I presume fake now that it is over, and asked me to arrange and pay the shipping fees on their behalf. It all seemed legit until the freight company wanted me to pay into another account. I started asking questions and doing some internet research but it was too late, the transactions between the customer and I and the freight company and I had taken place. We have flagged the transactions with our bank and are hopeful of getting the money back. We will also be refunding the credit cards and notifying the authorities. A couple of things to look out for are on their web site. 1) They will try and make it look as real as possible but the links they use for Facebook and Twitter are links to unrelated sites. 2) The scammer is very keen to get the ball rolling and will push you to increase their order or add something to the freight. Unfortunately, I was caught off guard as it was during a very busy period at work. This could have been avoided if we had simple procedures in place.
Someone named James Parker filled out one of our online forms and submitted it regarding an order he wanted a quote on. We sent him our quote and then got the following email back. It smelled of a scam as I had been approached like this in the past regarding a huge order of books. I found this thread when I searched on the name of the person and the name of the so-called freight company. Beware and thanks for having this thread out there to warn people. NOTE: the phony delivery location is meant to throw you off to believe the product is going to some religious organization or someone helping the needy. Don't be fooled. ---------------------------------------------------------------- -----Original Message----- >From: James Packer >Sent: Jul 9, 2015 12:21 AM >Subject: Shipping Assistance Needed... > >Thank you for the assistance with this order so far.

Just had The James Westman contact me for a 17k order of steel and freight. His shipper was seaway freight and logistics company, contact was Mathew Storch. I got to tell you this whole thing smelled like rat from the start. So I called my merchant processor and did what they call a code 10 before I considered running the transaction. Thankfully I found this site also. Good work guys thanks for posting! ReadyWeld LLc Bellevue wa.

Below are the set of original paintings i have selected and willing to purchase from you do get back to me with their total cost plus discount if there would be any; Blizzard Fun Purple Spring Magic Rumble in the Bronx Sunflower Still Life Dark Fae Mirror Mirror Antique Pastel Tea Cups Antique White Enamel Tea Pot Lastly, I implore you to also find out about the cost of shipping the paintings down to Singapore so i can also have an idea about the cost of shipping, though i would also ask around from my colleagues who have shipped internationally on the best shipping options plus how best to deal with customs clearance and duties. Same name, different country.
Scammers are getting tricky. His emails were well written in proper English which is unusual in other scam RFQs we've received in the past. Be careful! We received a RFQ for wire mesh from Optimum Contracting Inc. 31340 Via Colinas Westlake Village, CA 91362 Once we worked up the quote including a freight estimate to the address provided he responded he would like to buy the material and "suggested" a shipping company he would like to us to ship the material to Liberia. We responded to him noting that the S&H charges were to California and we were unaware that the material needed to go to Liberia and of course we haven't heard a response. The situation was brought to my attention after this major red flag to look into and I found there is no such company in Westlake Village (but there are legitimate business with this name in other parts of the USA) and found this scam notice once I googled his email address. 7/16/15

I received this email today: Hello Mr. Rod, The total cost ($2850.00) is fine by me. I will be using my shipper because of the new Finland laws on Art/Painting Importation.I will like you to contact my shipper at vitatransportserv@aol.com.He needs some information such as weight and other necessary information which you alone can provide so he can give me a shipping quote and we can move on.Also shipping fee/tax is determinant on the value of the art works so i have already sent him the value of the works.My customer ID is VIT34-xxxx. Kindly contact him today so i can make payment today or tomorrow.Also kindly send me your cell phone number. Do have a lovely day Abel . . . My response Abel Could you tell me a little about yourself, and about Vita transport? For you: Store name Address phone number website For Vita Owner name Address phone number website Would this sale involve me paying the shipping company, or you? Your email of June 15 said, in part, ' "I will be making installment by means of my credit card" Please provide details of what you have in mind, and how long after the final charge to your card is made would I have before shipping. I need to check with my credit card processor to find out how much time is involved before the credit card charge fully clears. I'll need this information before sending you the weight and measurements, so I doubt it will happen until late in the week. Rod (I've deleted the last four numbers of the customer ID, just in case this person, Abel Boswell, is legitimate). I'll report back as this unfolds.
Followup: Abel Boswell failed to provide any of the information requested, or respond further. I assume he is running a scam.

I received a copy of this same email from the same person at the same place, but instead of chambray he was ordering steel sculptures. Can you tell me how you know that this is a scam, please. It looks like one, but I am an artist and have not shipped abroad. Before I get all involved in estimates from Seadex and from my crate builder, I would greatly appreciate information about your experience. Thank you in advance.

We almost got scammed by a large shipping order for 100 cases of our product and would've been out $26,000 if I didn't start sniffing around. Couldn't find any information on the company when I googled or BBB'd the name. I even google mapped all their addresses and all were fishy locations. They paid the order by credit card and asked that we pay their freight forwarder by wire and ship the product to Haiti. They never asked for a discount as I learned from a previous comment and checked their order. They paid full price...who doesn't ask for a discount? Thanks all for your posts.
Hi, i believe we have also just been the target of an attempt to scam us.I googled the freight company the contact wanted us to use, and found your site- THANKFULLY!! The script in the e-mail i received is very mush the same. Below is the freight company details. I tried to Google them, but no luck Freight Company: Ocean Drive International Shipping Company Manager: Capt James Larry E-mail: oceandriveintshipping@inbox.com Steve 28th July 2015
We have also received the same scam e-mail from kevinkennedy1015@gmail.com Optimum Contracting Inc. Thank you for this website.
BEWARE: I was also a victims of a shipping or forwarders scams. i want you guya to be alarmed with this forwarders company the name is SWIFT CARGO SERVICES they also had a website which they named from the legal or legitimate forwarders which is SWIFT FREIGHT,,, the tactics they used is to find a website or couple finder website and they will going to chat you and make you believe that its real and after a month they already have your trust they will make you believe that they are going to give you a package and it will be delivered by a forwarders company swiftcargoservices.net). They will give you a tracking number where you can use to track your package from the website (swiftcargoservices) after that they will going to contact you and say that they already have the package on their company and it was being hold because you have to pay 1st the delivery charges and you have to pay it by depositing the money in a bank acct. Name by a peraon (alicia bernardo ) becoz they she is their collecting officer. After you deposit they will confirm you by txt msg that they already have the money after an hour like if their working time is 8am-5pm they will let you to wait until their closing time which is 5pm qnd they will say that they detect something inside the package.. So its another reason for holding that package and they will call you and say that there is another payment for the penalty.. Like if they detect a money inside where it was not being declared and its against in their company policies. ...that scene will continue you will pay for a big money becoz of the charges that they will declared and you dnt know for what reason... Until you realize that you are already being scam.
