Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

OMG! It IS a scam! I also got the Sid Warehouse one. And I was silly enough to reply back with the quotation until they were asking a freight cost to Malaysia which is very unusual in our field of industries. So I decided to check on the company background and I found this forum. Thanks all for the info. Here's the email I received: Attn : Sales Department I am Smith Bill with Sid's Warehouse and I write to inquire about Bags. I will kindly be glad if you can send me a catalog to your bags to browse through. Do let me know if only you produce custom Abrasives. I will like to also inquire on the type of credit card you do accept for payment as well as surchages included. Do you accept pick up orders ? Do not hesitate to contact me back should you have questions related to the quotation inquiry as I look forward to working with your company on the project Sincerely, Bill Smith Sid's Warehouse 480 Smith Street Suffolk County Farmingdale, NY 11735-1105 Ph : 631-247-6701
A "Ken Waddell" contacted us today for 1,000 t-shirts that he needed to receive within 5 days. mkogh62@gmail.com. He gave an address of 1301-19th St. N - Humboldt, IO 50548. SCAM!! Beware. Not sure what his game is but do know it's a scam.

Got a Ron Williams out of California. Looked him up on the internet and the police are looking for him for various scams. He wanted me to build a special machine for him (expensive) and ship it to Brussels using his freight forwarder, prepaid. One clue is to argue with him through e-mail that you don't trust that freight forwarder as you have never heard of them and you will only use your freight forwarder and ship COD. Unfortunately he is using a freight company name that is similar to a real freight company, but not quiet the same. This ruins the reputation of the real freight forwarder, but people like old Ronny really don't care about that. Imagine if he used some of his skills to actually do some work. The give away on the freight company was that the address ended in @outlook.com. Big freight forwarders do not us yahoo, AOL, outlook, of g-mail. I certainly hope I don't look as stupid as this guy thinks I am.
We processed this guys credit card before realizing that it might be a fake, but here is the same basic information. On 2014-06-09 19:23, Collins David wrote: Hello, I want to know if you can ship to Czech Republic,and accept Visa, Master card, Amex and Discovery as a method of payment? Kind Regards Collins David We let them know that we would ship to the Czech Republic and received the following email. Good to hear back from you, bellow is the list of items i want to order: He had a $3,000+ order, which is normal for us, followed by this statement: MY DELIVERY ADDRESS Vaclavske namesti 52, 110 00 Prague 1 Czech Republic We encounter some challenges when it comes to getting orders to my address here in Czech Republic, i want you to contact the shipper which i have used in the past,(moonshinelogistics@outlook.com), also you can notify them with my customer id#YU97BRJ72T.I will need you to obtain the shipping quote from them, and get back to me with: COST OF THE ORDER, COST OF THE SHIPPING VIA MOON SHINE LOGISTICS TOTAL COST (ORDER + SHIPPING) Once i have these details, i will get back to you with my credit card details immediately.so you can charge and make the necessary shipping arrangements. Kind Regards Collins David
I work at a furniture dealer and received a request for a quote from Kent Winchester (kentwinchester77@gmail.com) for a desk. Normal enough, but the delivery address he gave me was Street Gudmundur Jonasson Travel City, Borgartun 34 , Country,ICELAND Postal/Zip Code,105 REYKJAVÍK He also provided me with a shipping company to use greekshippingcompanies@hotmail.com . A cursory Google search didn't bring anything up and the hotmail domain seemed fishy as well. I still provided him with a quote, and he provided me with a credit card late on a Friday. I received several emails over the weekend and even a phone call Monday asking if I had run it yet. After trying once again to find a contact number for the shipping company, I decided to verify the card on the Visa merchant hotline. The card number and address were correct but the name was wrong. Told "Kent" we couldn't process the card as it failed verification. Haven't heard from him since.
Hi,"Wayne Allan" contacted us after 200 vases for his church in Haiti. We have a Homewares store in McLaren Vale South Australia, he wanted us to contact his shipping company and after a couple of emails we became suspicious as his feeble English and name kept changing so after a quick Google check we found your site. Thanks

I'm getting this same thing. Someone by the name of Quadri Mohammed wants to buy a large order of handmade pens, and is using the preferred shipping company line with me. He is willing to pay everything by credit card through Paypal, but I bet the card is stolen, or he'll initiate a chargeback after I pay the shipping company. The company he wants to use is Express Cargo Direct (yahoo email address), and of course, they don't have a website, and they don't take credit cards, so they require a bank transfer. Their fee is also twice what FedEx charges for the same service. When I suggested FedEx, Mohammed insisted I use his company, since they have been so good for him in the past. The shipping address is a PO box the Four Seasons Hotel in Cairo. Also, Mr. scammer doesn't realize that I can see where my etsy views come from... no views at all from Egypt yesterday. He sent an email from his phone, a Blackberry on Sprint. I might play with this guy for a bit, and see how desperate he gets. Too bad it's a scam, I really could have used the sale. Lee B.

I was not so lucky and have now been scammed for $36k. Mine was a little different as they paid via credit card and all went through ok. It wasnt until a week later that my eftpos people sent me emails saying I have to now pay this money back. The transport company they told me to use is Beaux Freight company. The logo looks real as well as the invoice they send through. I've been in logistics for many years and the 1 thing on the invoice I didn't pick up on is there is NO phone number.The goods they ordered VIBRATORS, yes, I own an adult shop. Wish I had checked everything out more before I went ahead with everything as I now look like loosing it all. I hope more people see your site to save them the heartache of what I, and so many more now have to go through

We own a trophy shop. We received an email asking for a quote on 150x silver trays. He wanted to pay by mastercard & we told him we don't have eftpos to go through with his transaction, but the shop next door to us does, so you can put the money into his account. He then wanted us to give him a the weight dimensions on the freight as he wanted it shipped to the Philippines. I thought to myself this is a load of crap so I googled Beaux Freight Company & here I am writing this little post. He called himself Chris Gate. Thanks for posting this scam.
Another hint is the recipient email address: To: undisclosed-recipients:; This indicates they did not send an email directly to you, but a bulk list of addresses.
