Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

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.
Still at it. Got this email today after an initial email asking if we accepted credit cards:******************************** Hello, Thanks for the reply on my inquiry. I do really appreciate it a lot, Here are the items and quantities required. Kindly get back to me with the quote as soon as possible today: ***Edited for brevity.

Best Regards, Mark Nelson ********************************************* I forwarded a link to "Mr. Nelson" of this page. Hope he finds it as entertaining as I did. Thanks to all who reported this.
Just picked up another one! Mr Chris Peter (typical two first names!) wanted to order 80 of our product after quoting various sizes etc. asked to ship through beaux freight company and AFTER shipped they would pay by credit card!! i don't think so!! The 'invoice' from beaux now has a NSW address but a SA/WA phone number on it and a 'website under construction' detail! you'd think they'd get it right if they want it believed!
I got similar e-mail this morning. From chrispeter004@gmail.com. He asked me about 20 products from our shop.He didn't discuss the price and order directly. I asked him provide the detail of his company or himself. He began to give me some excuses. He was asking me how to use credit card to pay the full payment. It sounds funny and I am still talking with him to see how is going.
I just recieved an order for 6 of one painting and two of another. Even though there is only one original. He emailed as David Mark then daddy mark. I found this site which confirmed my suspicions.

Is worldshipping a scam?
A fake company Syri Ventures contacted us to purchase $5000 in materials. Trinity Freight was supposed to ship the goods for $4000. We were asked to transfer money into Trinity Freight's account but realized that this was a scam. The email address, names, and phone numbers involved are below. trinityfreightco@hotmail.com outlook_fe73e6882b873fc2@outlook.com customer.ser89@gmail.com Jesse Newman Jim Whyte Kyle Scampton Bernard M Mueller 419-581-5592
I just got an email at our company for 100,000 flyers to be printed and shipped to 673 Ring Road,HT6110 Port-au-prince, Haiti. Google "George Best" and you will realize he is neither religious no ALIVE. He died in 2005 and was a famous athlete. Please be careful as to not fall for this pitiful and ill-planned scam. Have a nice day! :)
thank you!

I'm getting the same scam: jidair cargo logistics (which actually has a website) but the email addresses don't match. Not that sounded like a real business email anyways. the whole Western union thing along with a $2,000 shipping quote. Anyways some guy named David "daddy" Mark wants me to roast and ship him 400lbs of coffee to the fiji islands... I'm half way tempted just to see if he'll charge some ridiculous amount of money to a fraudulent credit card number. Heres what is looks like.

I just got an email from darrenluke90@gmail.com, wanting to order 45 bottles of essential oils. . It looked suspicious. We haven't gotten into shipping yet. . I am planning to ask for the phone number of the issuing bank for the credit card and also establishing that UPS will be the shipping agent . We will see how that goes. It is sad that so many out there are trying to rip companies off. I wonder if the glass may be used for munitions/ weapons. I will contact google and the FBI Internet crime site about this.

we were contacted by a thomas boswell in finland wanting to purchase $3300 of photographic prints to sell in his store. we have a booth in a very successful art market and people from all over the world come by so we did not find it un-plausible. mr so called boswell wanted to pay us the 3300 plus $2500 in shipping fees. we were supposed to pay the shipper (with whom boswell had an account) directly once the funds cleared from boswell credit card. the email address is thomasgreatlife@aol.com and the shipping company is maranashipping@aol.com. it smelled fishy and i'm sure it would have been a scam.
This same person is person is trying to run the same scam on me now! Thank you for posting!

Hmmm... I was just contacted by Thomas Boswell with an order for $3300 worth of art with the same shipping contact. I will play along to see what happens. Thanks for the heads-up. "Hello, The total cost($3350)is fine by me but due to the new Finland Art importation policies,there has been an increase in art importation tax so most couriers like dhl,fedex etc. will only get the art works to Finland and not to the receiver,so i will have to pay for all the fees before it is released to me at the airport. so kindly contact my shipper at maranashipping@aol.com.My customer ID is MRD3-8498. He need some information such as weight,pickup address and other necessary information which you alone can provide so he can give me a quote. Kindly contact him today"
We got that email for this guy "Paul Albert". I went on the internet to verify if it was a scam or not. And indeed it is. Thanks for your site. Here is a copy of the first email we had. Anonymous -----Message d'origine----- De : Paul Albert [mailto:albertstore@gmail.com] Envoyé : 14 avril 2015 21:54 À : INFO (HI) Objet : Enquiry/Cyprus Hello , I'm Paul Albert, Respectively I have some interest in your products,Inwhich I would prefer to ask you directly if ship to Cyprus and accept Visa & MC as payment. Let me know if you ship to the above destination and also if you accept the payment terms as indicated above. I would be most appreciated if you return this email with your website and some current product price list. Best Regards Paul Albert
I received exactly the same email from 'Paul Albert' and I am very grateful to this site for confirming my suspicions. I was initially suspicious when he said he wanted to place an order but at the same time was asking what my website address was - how could he know what to order without having seen my website?! But I continued with correspondence until I realised that he was trying to get me to contact a shipping company (presumably his friend!) to make a shipping payment that he could not do. I guess they would then have used my details to empty my account! Horrible people!
Jeff, I wanted to come pick them up my self but I had a call for a family emergency and need to travel to be with my family. They were involved in a terrible auto accident and the Dr needs my presence so will need you to further contact the McDonal Shipping Company and get me the shipping charges from them to come pick up the above said products from your location and have them Shipped to my associate in Sweden. Shipping Company Name : McDaniel Shipping Company Contact Name : Mr Chuck Datson Contact Email address : mcdanshipping@email.com or mcdan_shipping@fastservice.com And the information that the shipping company will request in order to provide you with the shipping charges is 1. The full pick up location Address 2. The size and Quantity of the products to be picked up and shipped 3.The shipping address And the address where i need the products to be shipped is below Contact Name : Mr Anthony Hopkins Address : August Barks Gata 17 421 32 Vastra Frolunda Sweden. And so i will like you to contact the shipping company as soon as you can and send me an email back with the shipping charges including the total cost for the products so that i can make the full payment. Thanks, Dominic
Found an ad through Craigslist for "moving boxes", but then was contacted by Johnson Clark (ohnsonclark200010@gmail.com) about shipping and receiving packages. I was told that I would receive a check in the mail, and to deposit it in my account, and use the rest to ship items and errands. It doesn't seem legit at all. I haven't found any information on this person or their business online anywhere

I JUST got an email from a John Smith. I first ignored the email, then he was persistent, so I quoted him a ridiculous amount, an amount no one would agree to pay.

I too received an email just today from David Orengo, asking to buy my jewelry for his store in Belgium. TOTAL scam. Thank you so much for this website! I googled his name and found this. If it wasn't for this site, I would not have know. Thanks again!
Had the same scam from: matt.lambart@aol.com. We sell balloons (www.balloons.com.au) and he wanted to order 1,200 tennis ball balloons to ship to Israel!! He was going to use his own carrier or something. Thanks for this post, I quickly searched his email address and it popped up.
Also had a email from matt.lambart@aol.com this week. He wanted to buy a very niche (expensive) item we sell. Give away was his signing off and poor grammer. There are many emails that come from a BOT hoping one will open an infected attachment, this guy obviously took the time to write the email and copy and paste the details.
Scam, going by the name of andy koster email akoster.sales@gmail.com using the freight name crown freight inc.

So I though it was weird that I got an email on my personal account asking for my website, when usually people would fine me on my website. Mine was from the Daddy Mark guy who signed his name Mark. He used two different email addresses. One from barrackpotter@hotmail.com and the other was dadd.mark@gmail.com. Wanted a huge order to be shipped to Fiji Islands. I thought the whole thing seemed fishy, especially when I could find no info on his company "Social P.store" I'm not sure exactly how this scam was suppose to work, but I'm so grateful to have found this site, which confirmed that this is a scam!

Received this which also sounded a bit off to me as no store is mentioned in the email. I do not sell goods wholesale to just anyone, so until I saw this blog, I was going to string him along. He consistently avoided giving me any info about the store or a resale number. "Hello, I will like to make a purchase to my store in Finland. I will be making payment via my credit card.I will also like to know the type of card you require ? shipment will be handled by my shipper once my payment has been made. I hope to read from you soon Warmest Regards. Thomas Boswell Albergagatan 3-9, 02600 Esbo, Finland"

I got a scam email by a company called best worldwide shipping company. Don't do anything with these emails. Same red flags. Nothing about the company online. They want you to send wire transfers etc to Lithuania. No phone numbers, and no name at the end of email to contact. just asked to reply by email. Just letting people know. Be careful! They target people applying for jobs. So if you have been getting emails from job search sites you might be receiving these emails every once in awhile. Good luck! Stay vigilant!
I got the same type of scam from a person named Todd Gilbert requesting shipment to Danicom Warehouse in Switzerland.
I got bill Wiley wanting 500 bottles of strawberry ejuice shipped to Haiti..the location is what made me question it....I see another bill Wiley above..and I was unsure how this scam worked until reading ....I'm okay and I would like to proceed with my payment. In the mean time I want you to contact the freight company that will do the pickup from your location to my new project that has started in Haiti,so I can get the freight cost as well. I will get back to you with my detailed credit card information as soon as I get the freight cost, so that you can put the total charges through and then proceed with the order. I am very busy at the moment but will give you a call later after confirming the freight cost for me. Details of the shipping company. Name: Ocean shipping Ltd Manager: Robert Sherman Phone: 734-256-5027 oceanshippingltd.com Thanks guys and gals
Here is one as of today, May 18th! 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 Then he ordered a bunch of glassware and sent this: Kindly calculate the total cost of our order so that we can provide our credit card account information for the payment of the order and the shipment. But about the shipment we will have our own shipper that will pick up our order directly from your location,we would have preferred to ship via DHL, but we don't have account with them anymore due to their high tariff,so you DON'T have to include the shipping fees,just give us the estimate of the order ONLY for now,So we will use our own shipping agent they will come and pick our order from your location directly. PLEASE NOTE: So as soon as we send our credit card account information to you,the payment of our order will be charged on our credit card account information and also for the payment of the shipping,So you will contact our own shipping agent,once you are able to get the shipping cost from,you can also include the 5% Processing fees if required for the charge of the shipping fees. We would have paid the shipping fees our self directly to the shipping agent,but at this time they dont accept credit card for payment,as they are not yet set up to take credit card for payment for now,they are upgrading their credit card machine at this time. so what we want you to do is to contact our shipping agent so that they can figure out how much pick up and shipping would be,because we already have some large merchandise with them already which after picking our order from you,they will then send them together to us here,so please note all this and get back to us with the estimate of the order so that we can give you the shipper's details for you to contact them and find out the cost for shipping,so as to get our order processed and completed. Thanks for your corporation. Kindest Regards, Lee Scott
matt.lambart@aol.com - total spam!!! Don't reply to any emails from this address. He claimes to be from Matt & Co Inc but there is no such business. He asked for a quote from us for a product we sell then asked me to increase the quote to a quantity of 400 of the product. Wanted to pay via credit card. His address was a Hobart, TAS address. Total rubbish - don't reply to his emails!
I got a similar email from a Mr. Bill Wilson. Thanks for the quick response back and i will like to move forward with the order and I am shipping these items to a client of mine in Puerto Rico and I will like you to contact the below shippers and get me a shipping quotation to ship the materials. Kindly go ahead and contact the shippers with the following information and request for an accurate quotation: Information Needed to Provide Freight 1.Pick up address : 2.Delivery address = FRIENDS OF THE EARTH 1001 Calle San Roberto Suite 500 Rio Piedras, PR 00926 USA 3. Size, Quantity/ Weight of shipment Shipping Company Details Name of Company : Pacific International Lines (PIL). Contact Name : Mr. Ricardo Bravo Contact Email Address : PacificInternationalLines@gmx.com Phone : 908 751 3002 As soon as you contact and hear back from the shipping company, Send me an email back with the total cost of the items plus shipping and handling charges so that I can make the full down payment altogether with my credit card account. Regards, Mr. Bill Wilson. He wants to buy a forklift from us using a credit card and shipping to Puerto Rico which by looking at the freight company's website they do not ship into Puerto Rico. I am contacting the shipping company while CCing the customer and his "freight forwarder" now letting them know I am on to their scamming ways.
I received a similar email today, George Best & Sons inc (using a hotmail address). Seemed too good to be true, they wanted to increase their order after I quoted them for printed banners. They want me to contact the shipping company directly, I'm sure this is going the same direction as comments above.. some excuse about the shipping company in an effort to get me to send someone money. This is aweful, I'm a small business owner who is barely getting by. This sounded too good to be true, I was excited at the prospect of a huge order.. now I am thoroughly disappointed.
I started working for a company called sensygift but the lady that inbox me her email was jmeyer@sensygift.com but brian strothham was doing the hiring I guess he was the one who posted the ad on craig list. any ways they was hiring for ware house gift wrapping working from home... they sent me items and im suppose to wrap it up like a gift and send it off they pay to send it off and everything. anyways they did pay me I earned 120 the first two weeks. they pay every two weeks. ok I know getting paid from them is not a scam anyways I did research found out if u working from a company like that its a scam and could be stolen good, so I replied to the lady ask her she said no they usually have people work from them and steal they merchandise I didn't believe so I quit working there.. they had me sending it to ohio and Illinois and Chicago I was reading the label they send me to put on the box anyways I quit and told her not to send anything else to my house even though they paid me I still felt it was wrong so I quit
