Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

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.

We have also received an order from Micheael Daley, luckily our smart salesman was a little sus and did a check and found your website! Thank goodness. He wrote;Hello Thank 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 Singapore The 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.

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 found this page today. After being contacted by a "Dr. Carl Bannerman" via email about the purchase of a moderate amount of Fire Extinguishers to ship overseas to Ghana. I was suspicious at first but after several emails and trying to check out the legitimacy of the freight company he preferred "Broadway Shipping and Logistics" also located overseas from the US, everything seemed to be on the up and up. After letting him know we would not proceed without payment for product and shipping costs he gave me a credit card that did actually work! The money showed up in the business account the next day. So, I had no other choice to think that this was a legitimate transaction. The key mistakes this guy made that led me to check further and led me to a couple additional websites and blogs that I had not seen before. After establishing email contact and receiving the costs, he called me from an international phone number that appeared to be from Ghana. When I asked if the number that appeared on my cell was a number where I could reach him, he avoided the question so I just wrote it down. Nothing appeared on the net when I tried to research this number. After processing the card for payment, he began calling me with a blocked / private number consistently daily asking if we had called the shipping company to pay them via Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer. We were just about to WU the money and thank god the website did not allow us to because the fella called again today. Making the final mistake that led to the scam discovery. He called from a Cleveland, Ohio area code and did not block the number this time. I researched it on the web and found all kinds of blogs at "mrnumber" regarding other attempts to pull the same gig on others. I then called Visa which in turn had me call Chase to verify if the card was flagged for any suspicious activity. The Chase Fraud Department instructed me to cancel the transaction immediately and to not proceed as the card holder name I was given did not match the actual card holder although the billing address was the same. Scammers are getting good so watch out! My personal lesson learned here..... NEVER ship anything overseas unless the company has an actual working website. you can pay them directly through an accounts receivable department, you can verify the legitimacy of the company they wish to use, or you call and verify the information with the credit card company prior to running the card for payment! Lesson learned Mr. Carl Bannerman at carlbannerman10004@gmail.com

Thanks for this site. It probably saved me a lot of headaches.
"Mark" contacted us to make a purchase and gave the following information after asking if we accepted US credit cards. I took the time to google the "MIND EXPRESS Freight" he mentioned rather that click on the link because it sure sounded like scam material. This site came up and I am thankful for everyone who took the time to share their stories.

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 MIND and if we didn't wouldn't have ask you to contact them in the first place. They are very reliable and fast.

We are trying to break into export business, and typically the foreign importer does not have good English.  Several things were fishy about this request, though.  I always Google any company we do business with--Thank you so much for this warning!  When I replied that we use our own shipping company, he insisted we use Mind Express Freight as they knew how to handle import documents for the Czech Republic.  By the way, this scam is using the name "Ben Fisher"  HA! 

I was contacted by someone identifying himself as Chris White. He was looking to order flooring. I knew right away it was a scam, but I played with him for awhile to see how much info I could get out of him. He used the email chris4white@gmail.com and lo and behold he has a facebook (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001220185072). Judging by his comments on his friends pages his real name is Tim and he is from Ghana. I know this because he accepted my friend request and I went through all his posted comments. I posted on his wall so everyone could see he was a scammer. He deleted my post about 20 mins later. I reposted it on his wall and then defriended him and reported him to Facebook.  If he provides me with credit card numbers I plan all calling the credit card companies to make sure they know they are stolen. A copy of his email to me is below. I was also contacted by his freight company TNA (tnashippingco@live.com)  Am Chris white and i will like to order the wood sizes #1 common unfinished red oak 3 1/4" X 3/4".Email me with the price for 1050sf. Thanks

Beware of Ben Fisher  ben_fisher@rediffmail.com Mind Express Freight / Nago Shippers  mexpress8@aol.comGordan Mark Investment  

I was almost taken even though I had several red flags.  I was contacted by a Judd Berkley@yahoo.com wanting to ship a large shipment of ski boot bags to Youth for Understanding in Johannesberg.  Judd refused to give me a phone number because his phone was being repaired (right) and he said he was from Columbus, OH (sure) and that the shipping company I was to contact was Xpert Shippers - but they didn't have a website or phone number.  I finally got a quote from the obviously bogus shipping company saying the freight was $2100 and that I was to wire the money because they could not as yet take credit cards (funny about that).  Anyway, when I heard from Youth for Understanding (who are in Cape Town, not Johannesberg), they said they had never heard of this guy Judd Berkley but these people used their non-profit organisation before and it was a scam.  So, I sent this scumbag a form asking him to sign it and fax it to me, together with photo ID and photocopy of the credit card to me, and told him that it was against our policy to wire money to the shipping company and that he would have to pay for the shipping direct....and I haven't heard another thing from him after his constant emails asking me to fulfil his order  I wonder why? I think what they do is use a stolen credit card to pay for the goods and shipping, and then get you to wire his mate or him the shipping costs, and then the credit card funds don't go through because the card is stolen. So, don't do what I did and wait too long before you take notice of those "red flags".
