Warning: Fake shipping company scam

Comments

I just returned from the conference and I have a good news for you. Unfortunately for you no orders, but my employees do not have to suffer from it. I offered your candidacy for new position and I tell you the decision of heads of tomorrow after the meeting. I want you to see you on new position and I hope for your good work. You are ready for it? And you want a raise?? Few details about new position, this work in the accounting department, where you will not work with the parcels, you will work with the money, receive and send it. To do this, you should be able to a little calculate, I hope you are able to add one number + another. Work 1-2 hours a day. You will earn good money, I would say the exact figure tomorrow. More information I will speak as soon as I have. My best regards, I hadn't even started working yet and this guy promoted me!! Too good to be true :(

I just recieved similar request this week from a mr Harry Kane for a $5,000 coffee order to be shipped to Haiti via diamond star freight ltd. Contact name their supposedly Mr John Lee diamondstarfreight@outlook.com he is more than willing to give credit card numbers etc... I am stopping contact now. THANKS TO GOOGLE. Jan 22 2015
Anyone Know about MIKE URBANSKY With JUST LOVELY SALES? He is trying to get me to do "freight forwarder" position. It already seems fishy. Anyone have problems with him?
Just received a similar attempt by a Jason Yacob out of Dubai. Figured it was a scam but couldn't figure the angle. So, if I'm clear, the ripoff is in the payment by the vendor to the shipping company. Scumbags. The shipping company is listed as Valley Air Freight. They have a website, but no contact phone number. Thanks for this info!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This just happened to our company and we are out 2,900. Mr. Tim Harris contacted our company via website inquiring about a specialty material we sell to the medical testing field. It is a costly material and his first inquiry was for a small amount. Same story as so many on here. Do you take credit cards can you ship through this logistics company to Liberia. None of this seemed strange to us as this is typically how we do business and we have numerous overseas customers. The gentleman gave a credit card and paid the invoice in full plus shipping despite the fact there was a 3 week lead time on the material. I made the wire transfer to the freight company and two days later he sends another email and wants to order more this time it is 11,000 worth of product with freight at 4,900. Again he insists on paying in full even though product wont ship for a month. He gives me a credit card number this time it is a different card with an address in a different state. ODD but it goes through and i initiate the wire for 4,900 in shipping although i notice suddenly we are wiring to a different bank even though the shipping company has not changed. Something didnt feel right so I called the bank and pulled back the wire. I emailed James Feeney with the logistics company asking for a website low and behold the site is under construction. I called the credit card companies and gave them the numbers he used and was informed one had been cancelled and reported stolen while the other did not belong to Tim Harris so I suggested they call the card holder and let them know I had charged 11,000 to the card but would be reversing the charges as their card was clearly stolen. I am currently emailing Mr. Harris to tell him his card would not go through to see how many more card numbers I can get from him so I can notify the banks and they can let these people know. There HAS GOT TO BE SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO STOP THIS PERSON!!!

We received a call from the same group of scum around middle of December 2014. Garry Warehouse, Bill Patrick, etc.. very poor English and seemingly very unfamiliar with the products they were interested in. Flags went up on several fronts as almost all the details line up with what everyone else has stated. They took us for about 3500.00 in transportation costs our sales lady wire transferred. We are based in WA state. Thank you for the information.
Also heard from the scammer williamdavi48@gmail.com and wanted to pass along the warning. Thank you for this site and hope this helps someone else.
I am looking for information on a Davis Richards @ Aragon shipping in College Park, GA who i know is a scam company seeking individuals about a Courier Representative job position and has people work on a monthly pay basis but doesn't pay at the DND of month worked... Any info concerning thus matter would be greatly appreciated!
Hello: Here's another one from Leo Stone. Just got this email. Several tip offs - our website has catalog numbers on all items listed, bad English grammar (and lower case I ), shipping to Belize and the question regarding which type of credit cards can be processed. Attn Sales, Warm Greetings from Leo D Store, am writing in respect of our interests in purchasing some products from your company. Before we proceed further i would like to know if your products are authorized to be shipped out of your country to Belize, Central America. If its okay for your products to be shipped to this location then i will be pleased if you can get back to me with the following information so that i can proceed with the ordering. A catalog of the items you have available A website to view your products A price list if possible. Please also be advised that our preferable means of payment for this ordering has to be via credit cards, so i need to know the kinds of credit cards you accept for the payments. I await the requested information so I can proceed with the ordering. Salvador Tovar Leo D Store 21A Coney Drive, Belize City, Belize Central America Telephone Number: (501) 8220772
i just got something similar: 'Good day Sales, I would like to make an inquiry about some products. But before i proceed, Please inform me on: - Shipping to Belize, Central America (if possible) ? - Minimum order quantity ? - If credit card is accepted ? - Delivery lead time ? I would be awaiting to receive the reply as soon as possible. Sincere, Salvador Tovar Leo D Store 21A Coney Drive, Belize City, Belize Central America Telephone Number: (501) 8220772' --as others are saying - a clue to things being awry is that i do have an online product catalogue and its most unlikely that a prospective wouldn't have a pack size and product application in mind -- coney drive seems to house many business addresses but google hasn't located the other details in the enquiry above -- trade carefully ed martin
Ditto!
There is a company trying to hire ppl for courier representatives in each staye to receive shipments and relabele and send back out n they say they will pay $1800 compensation for job and at month end. They DO NOT PAY after you have done the work for the month....company name is ARAGON SHIPPING and name is DAVIS RICHARDS. Even after they didn't pay the day they were supposed to (which was january 2nd 2015 i recieved another email stating 'it was due to the holidays and apologized for any inconvenience and would pay on January 6,2015 but I didnt receive it nor could i get any response to my emails I sent and phone numbers would not go thru! THIS IS A SCAM job opportunity and hope no one else gets sucked in...beware any online jobopportunities and i hope they get caught and prosicuted!!! s
Excellent information on fake shipping logistic, Its really a nice guide form your blog. Freight Forwarding Companies in Singapore.
I do believe that I'm in the middle of one of these scams right now.. I am always skeptical though. It has only gotten to the part where the 'customer' wants to use his own shipping company called Package Express Delivery (email package_expressdelivery@hush.com). When I contacted them for a quote it was $1200 more than my Fed Ex quote ... but the real red flag (besides me smelling a rat anyway) was that when they asked me to provide them with information for their quote, I didn't tell them what I was shipping... When they sent the quote, they had the item as 'paintings'.. Hmmm, how did they know?! Guess they are psychic! .. They will also only take bank wire transfers. .. I wrote my 'customer' in Malta (another one of your red flags, way across the world from me) and told him that my company only pays via company credit card for shipping and also that Fed Ex is much less expensive, so we'd go that route. I haven't heard back ... and don't expect to. If I do, I may suggest that he pay the shipper directly and for my prints separately. Anyway, heads up for Malta scams and Package Express Delivery!

There's a guy going by the name of Harry Kane with a foreign accent who's doing this scheme. He attempted my small batch coffee roasting company to contact his shipping company called Diamond Star Freight LTD with a contact person named Mr. John Lee., and have my product to be shipped to: Boulevard du 15 October, Port-au-Prince,Haiti. Mr. Kane first contacted me through my contact section of my website. I followed up on his request and then I emailed him back to telephone me. Mr. Kane then telephoned me, I suppose from his cell phone (302-689-8026) and he then followed up with another email of shipping instructions of his choice. Mr. Kane was calling from Delaware and the shipping destination was Haiti. I knew immediately that this is a scam. This most important website confirms this. So please everybody concerned be aware and don't fall for criminal scheme. The date was yesterday 1/16/15
Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it. replica louis vuitton purses http://www.awhitwood.com

CAUTION: "Gary More" of "Lunaromo Enterprises Inc.", "garymore101@yahoo.com, Clayton, Panama and "Alex Davidson" of "First Choice Trucking" "firstchoicetrucking01@outlook.com are working this scam. Close call for us.
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. "Here is the exact email I received from Mr. Dominic Dover Thank you for your email,, I am Glad with the whole sale price you gave me on The Starter Kit , I will like to purchace 12 pics of Black, Silver, and Blue, 10 pics of the Pink, and Purple .. i am glad with the hole sale price Total for 80 kit is $1840,,i will also like to purchase 160 pics of the Juice,, 40 of the Juice and 40 Of the Juice,, I am Using it for my New Night Club in Austria, I will like you to add the price of the Liquid and and the kids and give me the total so that i can call you to tame the payment,,,Hope to hear from you,After i make payment and the Unit are ready myfreight company will come and pick them up Thank you, Mr Dominic Dover 132 terry rd , Hartford, CT 06105, 2033020859 Mrdominic64@gmail.com Re: Thank you for your email again,, I will like to purchase the 160 Bottles is for the total of $800 ($5 per bottle ,, thank you for the discount,, the total of the Kits $1840 the total of $800 total of all is $2640 I hope i am right with the total,, 80 unit with 12mg, 80 unit with 16mg,, this is good for me and my business,, hope to hear from you..
