wayne.johnson65@gmail.com^ got an email from this guy asking for 20 large wood cabinets.Nice try "Wayne".He wanted them shipped to....New Mission Foundation Center 896 Dunearn Road,#04-06B Sime Darby CenterSingapore 589472 Singapore 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@fastservice.comAnd I love his message! lol! Ha scam written all over it.__________________________________Good day,we require to know if you can supply us with somecabinets .Kindly get back to us with your inventory as well aspricing and advise if you accept credit card payment.Wish you all the bestin business and ill be looking forward to your response.best regardsWayne Johnson__________________________________Later he sent an email that he'd like to revise his order to 20 cabinets.

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. Item Id: 10221496 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 8691701 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 7663165 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 7951315 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 7951301 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 10306889 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 6917349 ......................60 QtysItem Id: 7951312 ......................60 QtysShipping Address.........Name of Company: --- Gordan Mark IncShop 345, 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 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
We were contacted by this same CRIMINAL!! Thanks to your website you saved us about $6000. We are a flavoring company and this guy originally asked to buy coffee beans and then flavoring for coffee beans!! Here is his e-mail:HelloThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to Mobo Shipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch in Singapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight of the unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that they can 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 is mslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contact them now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you to bill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shipping cost.Best Regards.Darren Luke14 front stDanielson,CT,06239203 274 8758

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.

If you are intersted, learn how to get free products from the iternet, www.sharebitz.weebly.com Best site ever existing. Have fun bro. 

14th March 2010I was cautious when Michael Daley placed a large order with me yesterday. After wasting an hour or so weighing and measuring the consignment I emailed Mobo Shipping Company for a freight quote. Fortunately I was not caught out.Vicki Matchett
I work at a small ethnic shop in Qld, had a request for 200 large boxes of incense, weird request we thought, then got this email which was the icing on the cake, old Michael Daley is still kicking!HelloThank 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.Michael DaleyGoogled the shipping company name and got this website, THANKYOU! :)
I received a few emails today from a guy named Michael Daley wanting to knowing pricing for our olive oil. Below are the emails.Hello,I would like to order some Olive Oils, Kindly let me know the pricing for it advise if you accept credit card payments.Michael-----------------------------------Hi Michael,I have attached our current price list for you to have a look at.Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities to accept credit cards, but we can accept bank deposits, Paypal, cheque.Please let me know if you wish to place an order.ThanksLeana-----------------------------------Leana,I need pricing for 50 of the 10 litre PET. Can you check out with your friends to use their credit card facilities. Let me knowMichael-----------------------------------Hi Michael,We can do you a special of $5.00/litre for the oil, plus container and postage costs.The 10 Ltr PET containers cost $8.50 each, so the cost works out to be $2,925.00 plus postage.There will be a short delay as we will need to organise this order through our processing plant where the oil is stored. We can also arrange for it to be freighted to you if you wish?Our office is located on the ******** family farm (in their house) and we don't have anyone close to us that we can borrow their credit card facilities.EFT is also accepted (and preferred) if you wish to proceed this way?ThanksLeana-----------------------------------Hello leanaThank you for your email, I will like to recommend you to Mobo Shipping Company for the shipping of the unit to my branch in Singapore and i will like you to email them with the total weight of the unit together with the pick up and delivery address , So that they can 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 is mslaf_shipping_co@live.com and i will like you to go ahead and contact them now, so that i can provide you with my credit card for you to bill it for the total amount of the unit together with the shipping cost.Best Regards.Michael DaleySent from my iPhoneEven though I told him we don't have access to credit card facilities he still assumed we were going to take his order?! Once I received that email (which was about half an hour ago) I googled the freight company name and it came up with this website as the only relating website. (The other websites were about motherboards?!)I hope that no one else gets lured into these scams! (About a year ago I had my personal bank account drained in one day as someone managed to get my card details, and I know how stressful and devastating it can be!)Good luck to everyone out there in spotting these scammers!
I have a very similar story as to what I have been reading in your comments. My company received similar emails from a "Michael Spin" and wanted his items shipped to Australia to a company named Benson Mark Inc totalling over $27,000. He says they are located in Australia but they do not have a website yet since they are a small growing company. He has called and emailed several times a day asking when we can get the quotes to him so he can send his credit card information. He also asked that we cc him on all emails sent to his preferred shipper, which is Mind Express Freight, or Mindex Express. Their email address was to a yahoo account. And this Michael Spin had a hotmail account. We are going to wait for him to give us the credit card info so we can try to at least contact the people that have had their cards stolen to report this. That seems to be all we can do at this point. Thank you everyone for your comments and stories, it has saved our company a lot of time and money.

The following is the scam sent to me for the purchase of picture framing material. "Thanks for the patience with me and i have just been contacted by my wife in regards to the pick up and shipment of the order when its ready and she will like the order shipped to Haiti and so i will like to recommend a shipping company for you to contact and get the pick up and shipping cost so that you can add the total cost for the shipping to the order so that i can authorize you to bill my master card or visa card for the full payment and below is the contact details for the shipping company as well as the delivery address and the information they will be needing to provide the quote.SHIPPING COMPANY CONTACT DETAILS.NAME OF THE COMPANY: Overseas Shipping CompanyPERSON TO CONTACT: Mr. Larry WinterCONTACT EMAIL ADDRESS: overseasshippingcom@cooltoad.comDELIVERY ADDRESSMrs, Brittany MatthewDelmas 33,Port-au-Prince,Haitihttp://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/01/earthquake_in_haiti.htmlEmail them and ask them for the shipping cost to the orphanage home in Haiti.Ask when they can pickup,what needs to be done before they pick up and their method of payment.Please do make sure to email the freight company with the total weights and dimensions of the units to be picked up as well as the pickup and delivery address for an accurate freight rates.I will be looking forward to do a very successful business with you.Regards,Reverend Rowland Gregory"

I was in the middle of a large shipping order $5,000.00 of copper lighting to go to an orphanage in Haiti...red flag right there! but at first he wanted to pick up the product at our retail store in Florida, but we only had a sales person in Florida (we manufactur in RI) and there was no store for him to pick them up so I said shipping would be included due ot the size of the order. Then came his shipping instructions...same as yours! Larry WInter....etc.....I also asked for a phone number to duscuss details over the phone but never received one and I started noticing his emails were coming through at very early morning hours 3-4 am.Still being skeptical but wanting to trust about the whole thing I did email the shipping company....they want me to send $2550.00 to a person in Ghana via western union. The only thng that confusd me was my so-called customer in Florida wanted to pay with a credit card and he was going to pay up front. I thought this is safe but apparantly isnt and I'm trying to understand how? If a charge his credit card and it clears how could I be in any potential trouble? Clearly its a scam, I'm just tryingto understand how it works. Is there a proper place to report such fraud? Below is his entire email:DEAR SHIPPER,Thank you for your interest in using Overseas Shipping Company for yourshipping needs and services and below is the information regarding theshipping quote and payment terms for pick up schedule.We checked on picking up and shipping 12 contents Post Onion Lanterns boxedindividually.

Ittakes approximately 2-3 days for delivery from the time of pick-up andregarding the packaging and crating the shipping company will also handle thatto prevent breakages or damages (but if the company prefers to handle thepackaging and crating themselves that will be no problem) and so you will needto receive the payment from the customer so that you can make payment to us(That is our Company Policy).SHIPPING PAYMENT OPTIONSThe shipping charges for the shipment will have to be paid to the shippingcompany via the Western Union through the nearest Post office location nearyou and so the customer will make the payment for the shipping to you and thenyou pay on his behalf since we only take payments from the pickup location andall you need to do is to get cash and the address to send payment which is below.1ST Payment Option:Send payment via Western Union Money Transfer/Money Gramto our financial manager at that location to the address the address is.ADDRESS TO SEND WESTERN UNION/MONEY GRAM PAYMENTName : Mr. Jordan HillfordAddress : 186 silver star AveZip code : 00233City : AccraCountry : GhanaTelephone : +233544159599You need to go to the western union with the cash of the shipping funds andthe address below specified to send payment through before we come and pick itup you have to email us with the Western Union Money Transfer receiptinformation which shows.1, Senders Full Name.2, MTCN Control Number 10 Digits.3, Secret Question and Answer.All the above information's are on the receipt and the question and answerwill come from you which can be any question and answer as you choose.As soon as we receive payment we will send you the payment receipts to yourfax number which contains the shipment tracking number and the time for thepick up and shipment and before we can provide that we need to get a paymentconfirmation details requested above and don't hesitate to contact us if youneed any more assistance.THANK YOUMr. Larry Winter (Freight & Logistics Manager)Overseas Shipping CompanyTelephone : +233544159599

They get their money through the shipping company.  Like you, I knew it was a scam, but couldn't figure out how the scammers were profiting from it.  It works like this:  they give you "their" preferred shipper's name and ask you to charge the order and the shipping fee to their credit card and for you to pay the shipper out of that.  Well, you pay the shipper cash and then they all disappear.  Later, you discover that the credit card was stolen, the bank refuses to pay the credit card charge (or takes the money back from you) and you are left holding the bag not only for the huge order, but for the money you paid the shipper (usually between $2.500 to $5,000), which was their goal in the first place.  The way to shut the scammers down is to state clearly that you will only ship using acceptable shippers such as FedEx, UPS, or the US Postal Service.  If they insist on using their own shipper, then tell them that they must arrange to pay them themselves (they are supposedly paying you, they can just as easily pay the shipper.)  You will find that they suddenly decide they don't need the order so bad afterall, or just suddenly quit contacting you.  When someone we don't know contacts us with a huge order, especially if there is the horrible grammer in the e-mail, we have a standard first response of:"To proceed with a quote we need full contact information, including shipping address and phone number.  For churches, we require tax exempt verification for sales tax purposes.  Upon receipt of this documentation we can provide quotes and payment terms.  We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but internet fraud has become a significant problem."  If they "get through that" and still want the order, but insist on using their own shipper, our response is, "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."  That gets rid of them.  Hope this helps.

Received a very similar email recently for a large order of first aid and disaster supplies.  Thank you very much  for feedback,i appreciate it a lot.  I will like to go ahead with the order so i will prefer to make the full payment to you with my master card so that you can go ahead and place the order for me. But before that , I want you to know that i am  sending this items to an Orphanage home in Ghana so you must be wondering how that could be done, that is simple. There is a shipping company that will come to your location to pick up this items as soon as they are ready for pick up OK so i want you to get in touch with this freight company and ask them how much it will cost for them to be at your location to pick up the items when it is  ready OK so that i can make the full payment. I want you to send them an email with your location address and then the Quantities of the items along with the delivery address below.Cathy Orphanage home.562 Ring Road EstAccra-Ghana 00221 TemaPlease in order to get the correct freight estimate  from the shipping company you need to send them the following information's by email.. Your Location address.. The delivery address..  Quantities of the items .So send the freight company all those details by email so that they can get back to you with the freight cost OK. Below is the contact details for the shippers you need to find the cost from.  Company name: Delmas Shipping Company Ltd.Company e-mail:       Delmas@Cooltoad.com  /   Infodelmas@asiamail.comContact Person: Mark Barry. When I originally emailed the "client" regarding a shipping address, he claimed to be in Baltimore, yet, I received a follow up phone call that revealed a Minnesota area code.  A little further digging brought up one red flag after another.  Delmas is a legitimate company, but the "company" emails look completely bogus - cooltoad.com - really?. Then I found this site and all my suspicions have now been further confirmed.  I have sent an email instructing the "client" to arrange the shipping directly with the "shipping company".  I don't expect to hear back. 

I got this:  My response is first: Gary,I am sorry, you would be responsible for arranging any freight shipment for your charity as well as clarifying any payment matters with your freight company. If you would like to proceed with your order, you will have to provide me with a North American address for the items to be shipped to, pay for the products first and then we would ship them (we only use FEDEX, Canada Post or UPS).  Once you have the products, you can arrange the shipment with your freight company.>       Thank you very much  for feedback,i appreciate it a lot.  I will> like> to go ahead with the order so i will prefer to make the full payment to> you> with my master card so that you can go ahead and place the order for me.> But> before that , I want you to know that i am  sending this items to an> Orphanage home in Ghana so you must be wondering how that could be done,> that is simple.

Picture perfect attempt same as the rest. John Dalley has a new name JAMES KELLEY. Uses the MOBO SHIPPING scam too. The english is getting better and lesser volumes of product was requested. Thanks for this blog it made the research easy.
HiI am having fun with a Wayne Johnson right now for the same scam, with fuel filters this timeSince he wasted 1 hr of my time, I figure I would send him and his non-existent shipping company on a wild goose chase across town in Accra, Ghana for an imaginary Western Union money transfer... That should keep him busy for a while....It is beyond me that some folks fall for this with guys ( Mugu in scammer parlance ) that:-Can't spell right two English words in a row -Get mixed up with their own various email addresses-Use pompous words such as "esteemed" , -Say a $4000 shipping charges is OK when you can normally ship the same stuff for 1/10th of that..Nuff saidEric D

Hello Eric,I found your post on Glass regarding the internet scammers in Accra. They just hit me up and I'm wanting to play with them a bit and found your post entertaining.What I'd really like to do is get these bastards caught, but I can't work out how to do that as it's international, but I have them calling back tomorrow with their credit card details. I've said I'll take their payment and pay their shipping company.Have you heard of any other way to nab these guys?Thanks,Chrissie Charley

Thank goodness I trusted my instincts and did some checking before following through on this order. Something was raising a red flag in my brain. Turns out the last email from "James Kelley" was exactly the same as the one sent to one of earlier posts on May 10, 2010 - Moby Shipping in Singapore. Although, it seems like the grammar & other components of this scam has improved a bit.Sounds like they are venturing into another area, we are a wholesale hat business.Thank you so much for this blog and for everyone else who has taken the time to do write about this. Any suggestions on how to combat this?

I just wrote this to him: Sorry Mr Walter,The mobile phone reception is not good where we live, in the country in NSW.Also, I want to be honest with you.I have known that you are a con artist since the beginning and I have been playing the game with you, trying to work out a way to have you caught. There are so many problems in your 'story', but I am not going to tell you what they are.You really are not a professional thief!It's so sad that you can't make your own money and you think you have the right to steal from young, hard-working families like mine.I have informed lots of International Police authorities about you and you don't realize that there are a lot of people doing the same thing. I have been speaking with many Australian companies that you have tried to steal money from and there is a case growing against  you, here and in Singapore.You will be caught very soon.Why can't you be proud of yourself and find your own way to make money in the world? Why are you so lazy that you must steal from others?Did your parents not encourage you enough in life?Although I have compassion for you because your life must be miserable being dishonest every day, I order you not to ever contact me or my family again.Christina Charley

We were contacted by Mark Shields from Vistek out of Australia.  He wanted bunkbeds sent to Australia.  After much back and forth we sent quotes.  When we finally asked for a phone # we got a bad phone # in  Michigan.  They also wanted a quote from a shipper out of Ghana.  Gregory Freight International. This was their shipper that they worked with for their project.  We got back a Air Freight quote.  The quote needed  to be paid by Money Gram, Western Union, or Bank transfer.  We googled the freight company name and we got your web site.  Beware.  There is always a new scam. Thanks for your postings.

I will like to go ahead with the order so i will prefer to make the full payment to you with my Visa card so that you can go ahead and place the order for me.

There is a shipping company that will come to your location to pick up this items as soon as they are ready for pick up so i want you to get in touch with this freight company and ask them how much it will cost for them to be at your location to pick up the items when it is ready so that i can make the full payment. I want you to send them an email with your location address and then the Weight of the items along with the delivery address below.

Delivery Address.

So please get in touch with the freight company and get me the cost , so that i can make the full payment to you. Thank you and i will wait to read from you with the total cost.
