Warning: Fake shipping company scam


Hello, I have ordered electronics (phones) via Alibaba and the guy responded to me sending my parcel via highway courier. The agreement was the destination in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. Now after the shipment they contacted me saying my parcel is being held by the Kenyan customs as it has to be paid for the custom fees. I sense that these people are scammers!!! How do I go about it? Can somebody help? The goods I ordered came from Beaufort America
So 4 days ago I received an email requesting a quote for 2 air conditioners from my company. It was a strange email as they did not state what voltages were required. I sent the quote and yesterday they stated they accepted the quote but wanted me to contact a shipping company and get a quote from them to send it overseas. I just sent the request for quote but something was still strange about this whole transaction. So I started to query the internet on possible scams. I found this website and read the postings. It has confirmed my suspicion that this was a scam. Thank you for all of your postings. Here is part of his email to me: Randy, I want to make the final payment including the delivery charges.Kindly find out the delivery charges so I can pay the total amount in all.I want the units picked up and shipped to Scarborough,Tobago for a project,I want you to contact U-SHIP FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS at (ushipfreight1@gmail.com) and find out if they can pickup from your location and deliver to Scarborough, Tobago The delivery address is Colton Brown 73 Bacolet Street Scarborough 120110 Tobago FREIGHT COMPANY INFORMATION NAME: U-SHIP FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS Email Contact: ushipfreight1@gmail.com PERSON TO CONTACT: PAUL DOUGLAS I think I will play with this guy tomorrow and contact the local law enforcement to see if they can find this guy. Thank you GlassMagazine.com for your service.... Randy
Met him on Skype and he introduced himself as Sgt. goodwill from USA in mission at Iraq, wife died and had son with a friend in Ghana. We chatted for month including his son Perry on cam. It happened that he found a briefcase of gold and wanted to ship to me but had no way then he brought the idea that his friend in Ghana knows Ghana Customs and can pass gold there to me, it started with few $ until I paid almost $46,000 during the process until I found on the web that it scam and I contacted the Ghana Crime Unit and he was arrested and some of my losses recoverd.Beware of scam from Ghana and contact officials!
Mr CHRIS GRANT.... haha There's red flags all over the email exchanges. Seriously, if it sounds fishy, it likely is fishy. Can't believe some actually fall for his scam. Here's our email exchange over the past few days: And no, we didn't run the credit card, but was trying to get more information, hoping FBI would get involved, but so far I haven't heard from the FBI. The below exchange is backwards, you would want to start reading at the bottom. We told him the wire transfer wouldn't go through, hoping he would give us a better contact information and he wated us to send the freight money via western union. Hi Dean , Nice to have you on the phone. Below information will be for you to make the Western Union transfer : Receiver's Name : - STACEY INGABIRE Receiver's Address : - 224 DONGGAN AVE.

Thank you so much! I'm a private gumtree seller. I was trying to sell secondhand products worth of £690.00 Please see copy of emails from scam buyer: 1) I have just made the payment now. PayPal will contact you with the payment confirmation mail regarding the payment. The shipping company wants £150 for the pick up and delivery and i have included it to the payment i sent. The shipping company will also get in touch with you with the details and information you will need to send the money to the Pick Up Agent. 2)You should have received the instructions mail from both PayPal and the Shipping Company on how to complete the transaction from your end. I will suggest you check in your spam folder as the mail might be in there. 3)Actually, The payment has been made already and has been deducted from my account..But the issue is that PayPal has placed a temporary hold on the fund for security reasons just to protect both of us..So you will have to send the money to the Agent and get back to PayPal with the western union details for verification and once the transfer has been verified, the whole fund will be released into your account without any further delay. I hope you understand the fact that PayPal is trying to protect both parties. Money for shipping was supposed to be sent to: Name: Isaac Coker City: Ibadan, State: Oyo Zip Code:23402 Country: Nigeria. Thank you again! Private sellers be cautious!!!

This Guy use the name of Floyd Bill McDaniel .... I actually had a conversation with with him. Name : Floyd Bill McDaniel Address : 3534 W Ball Rd, Anaheim Ca 92804 Phone : 209-730-8868 Tried to order $18,000 worth of materials. How he fail to scammed me ? This guy uses an American Name... but has a heavy accent which either sound like hes somewhere from south a 3rd world country with a broken English.
Here is one we just got scammed on, similar to one noted about a year ago. We made him pay upfront since we were suspicious. Credit cards went through fine and so we wired money to the shipping company. Credit card companies are now calling saying the cards we charged were not Johans. See email text below for more info on this scam. Hello Dan, I am okay with the total cost of $7,698.00 for my order and I would like to proceed with payment. Unfortunately I just had a call that my wife is in labor back in Washington , and due to that I will not be available to receive it for a subsequent forwarding to my newly opened company in Brazil. This is because I have to spend much time with my wife in Washington, since she needs my care and affection for our first child. For now, I will like to recommend you to a shipping company which I will like to use for the pick up, so that you can get in touch with them and find out how much they are going to charge in shipping the materials from your location to my newly opened company in Brazil. You are not responsible for packing and crating because they will come to your location and do all the necessary arrangement. I will get back to you with my detailed credit card info. as soon as I get the freight charges so that you can put the total charges through and then proceed with the order. Details of the shipping company. Name: Air Cargo Logistics Inc. Manager: Larry Newman. Email address: quotes.aircargologltd@hotmail.com I want you to email them with your location address, that is the pick up address and details of the package to be picked up that is weight, dimension and quantity and then let them know the delivery address is: Luke Campbell Avenida Atlantica 4240, Copacabana. Rio De Janeiro.Brazil Thanks a lot and I hope to hear from you as soon as you get the freight charges from Air Cargo Logistics Inc. Regards Johan

I'm always wary of emails that use the generic "I'm interested in your products/I'd like to place an order" since our products are very unique and real customers usually say the actual item they're interested in. Second, the fact that they want "Private pickup" with credit card is always fishy. Here's the email we got: Good Day, Greetings from Leeventures. My name is Lee Scott, I will like to place an order to Hamilton, HM DX Bermuda,however i would like to know if you accept private pickup and let me know the credit card type you accept (Master,Visa Card) as form of payment. It will be appreciated if you return my email with your latest updated website or attached price sheets of your products. Leeventures 207 Par La Ville Road Hamilton, HM DX Bermuda Kindest Regards, Lee Scott

I just had this happen to me today, I also own a vape shop. his number is 1 (203) 302-0859, his email is mrdominic64@gmail.com, and his "name" is Dominic Dover, he also sounded like he was in a different country and had terrible English. This was definitely a scam. "We had a customer who called in with a very bad signal and very bad english. He claims is name is Mr. Dominic Dover who owns a night club in Austria. He initially called to ask for a small starter kit item around $45 and acted like a normal customer and seems to want to know a good deal. Then he said, okay I'll take it! Also, I would like to order 80 units of these. I told him I can give him wholesale pricing and he said to email him all the necessary information. His name (a US name) House and street number and phone all checked out to be from CT, USA. After Initial Email of the total invoice, I asked him to choose specific colors for the product of 80 units. He agreed to the total price of 80 units, but the first red flag was, the color supplied only totaled 56 units, and he agreed to pay for the total 80 units. No normal person would want to pay more for less units and would make sure that the units ordered would actually total up the real amount. Then he called me back on phone and asked if I ever get the quote. Then he said now Lets add more 100 more products and I can pay with credit card right away. By email, he agreed to pay everything, now he insisted on using his own shipping company. D.E.freights@outlook.com This is the 3rd RED FLAG. First of all, no shipping company "d.e.freights" exists and secondly, outlook.com is a free email service like (gmail, yahoo, etc) so a reputable company should say the domain name. He kept calling back and demanded that I calculate the shipping weight and email it to "that company" (which is really him) so he can come back with a quote. I told him that it will take some time to calculate all the weight, so he insisted that that company is special, that if i just told him the amount of units and item, they can Magically find out how exactly how much the total weight was, and that they can quote me a price. After further investigation, I already know these scams all too well, but at the same time don't want to be rude to my clients by giving them the benefit of the doubt, and I'm sure this is why many people fall victim to this scam. So He kept calling back our company, and tried to talk to all the sales people, the directors, the manager, so he is quite persistent. I kindly told him you need to supply Business name, address, sellers permit number and copy, and then we can process this order. Since then, he had not responded with any of that information, but kept insisting that I give him the package weight to make the deal so he can pay with his credit card right away -- The FINAL RED FLAG. So Hopefully everyone reading this can learn more about this scam and not fall victim to any of these as many small businesses in America area already hurt during the recession and may feel like "Oh My god, we can make so much money on this deal today, it can help pay for this months rent and bills!!!" then they jump right into the scammers lap only to be hit with a $5000 shipping fee, and a $5000 charge back and plenty of deadstock shipping in your office. Luckily, I've seen this way too often to move forward with a deal like this. "If it looks like a duck, quack like a duck, it's probably is a DUCK!" RULE OF THUMB TO AVOID THESE SCAMS ARE: 1. Always get their full business information, Name, Business name, Sellers Permit, Website, more information the better 2. Always use your own shipping company and follow your company's policies and well trusted shipping companies (USPS, Fedex, UPS, DHL) 3. A real buyer will never pressure themselves or you into buying something IMMEDIATELY. If you were buying something greater than $1000 value, you would probably need some time to think it over and check pricing, product, and company's reputation. You would never buy $1000+ worth of something and commit within a matter of minutes on the phone. 4. If it's too good to be true, then it probably is.

Look Out for Guandox or Guandol Shipping Company, Cody or other will email and request many pairs of shoes, then attempt to use many stolen CC numbers, and then send quote for shipping company, and request that the small business (me/you) send the freight moneys directly to shipping company, the scam seems pretty straightforward to me, and quite transparent... This is a sample email from Cody and Sons Pty Ltd... thank you , i have just finished talking to the freight and said they only accept wire transfer for their shipments. Please the make the payment of $990 to their main account, and below is the banking details for the payment; they accept all the banking charges.

They're still at it. A guy named George Best contacted my printing company asking that we produce a large quantity of flyers for shipping to Haiti. He quickly emailed press ready artwork with no address or phone, representing it to be for a Christian outreach ministry. The shipping company he referred us to was Diamond Star Freight. After the printing and shipping costs were confirmed we asked for payment in advance by check or m.o. drawn on a U.S.bank. He replied that he could only pay by credit card and asked for my direct line to give me the info by phone. I asked that he provide all the details including full name and address on the card. Never heard from him again.
