I filled out the application and sent it back, had no personal details. No bank accounts, no credit cards, etc. Not surprisingly, the application was accepted and they sent me the Employment Agreement. At which point this started to smell so I tried to do a little research on the company. IMD Expert LLC. Nothing. Was concerned about the potential of receiving stolen property, or exporting something that was ITAR controlled, and became pretty sure I needed to look further into it. Found this site, and others,

THANK YOU

Hello, you're still here? I spend something like that and I know that I do now.

I get mail from one company "re-shipping" and so I was finding out that I got the data and is the same example that you put below. in this case it's a scam with an iPhone.
THANKS IN ADVANCE

Aha, I did some research on this company through a domain name look-up. The company that emailed me goes by the name "SAT Logistics AG" domain: satlogisticsag.org (looks like they threw something up to look legit, lmao)

Got a few emails asking me to use my credit card to purchase goods, they gave me bank account information such as the routing number and account number to pay off my credit card.

I'm lost here, because why would i need to provide my SSN# and personal info for them to open up a credit line in my name.

Another email:

Hello Kris,

Thank you! Here is some more detailed information regarding the next step:

During this step you will learn how to receive payments form our corporate account. You should have an existing credit card for accepting our payments.
Your card is necessary for the first time only; We have to trust you before providing an access to the company's monetary funds.
All we need is only your balance and bank's name. This is enough to initiate a payment.

I need to know your Current Balance to find the most suitable customer for you to work with:
You could fill in the attached Payroll form or send this information by e-mail:

Credit Card Issuer / Credit Limit* / Current balance**

1) Capital One, Visa / $3,000.00 / $1,597.40
2) Chase, Visa / $15,000.00 / $14,597.40

NOTE! This information is public, it's just an amount of your debt that will help us to calculate your monthly salary and create your personal working plan.
For security reasons we are working only with major credit card companies (BOA, Capital One, BB&T, Amex, etc);

I will give you a call for a brief phone interview right away after we get your balance info. Many details will depend on this amount.
Using several credit cards is a great start. Your commission will be increased as for Wholesale Operations Specialist.

* The Current Balance is how much you owe. This is the amount we could work with. Each transaction should be lower than your Current Balance.
Maxed out cards are great.

** A Credit Limit is the maximum amount of credit that a financial institution will extend to a debtor for a particular line of credit.


Another Email:

Hello Kris,

Thanks for your information! Your cards are great and suitable for this job.
Let me know if you are ready to start tomorrow. What is the best time to call you?

Let me explain the payment process in more details:

- I will provide you with our account information;
- You should pay off Your credit card from Our account;
- We will approve your payment in the same day;
- The funds are usually available on the next day;

The main rule is to be in touch and follow my instructions rapidly. Before issuing your personal corporate credit card, we have to be sure that you could do everything in time.

Currently we are processing an emergency order for one of our wholesale clients. You will be purchasing Apple and Google gift cards in your local retail stores.
Job is about purchasing cards and providing their digital codes. This is much cheaper that sending them to China where our client is located.

NOTE! You must finish all orders within 48 hrs since the funds are available on your account. If you have any questions, please ask them before we start.

Have a great day
Lora Goldman, Manager
SAT Logistics Limited
347.627.0045 Office


I won't bombard this forum with multiple emails from them, but it looks like a scam. Why not just give me a corporate credit card and if i did "steal" funds from this card, just press charges? I don't get it, lmfao.

Names to watch out for:
Geraldine Rosenbeck, Lora Goldman, Joseph K Woods

Like I said, I don't know if this is a legit company, but I'm just letting people know about this. Like I said, I simply did a domain name check on SAT Logistics, and the owner of the domain popped up as "Wuxi Yilian LLC" and from there I did a simple Google search, and it linked me to this thread.

I figured. I was just playing along with them to see what else I could do. It's just hilarious how easy it is to figure out if they're scamming. They were sending emails from mail.com, mailjet, and then the domain name.

I think I'm going to keep playing with them.
#282364 by Bryon Williams Sat Jan 23, 2016 3:15 pm
I do not recommend playing with criminals.

I just realized i've been scammed... I fell hard for this one.

Called their office, everything seemed ok. Didn't think that once a charge goes through it could be reversed. It's been 2 weeks, everything got reversed.. trying to sort it out with the bank now. I know im stupid.. but hopefully everything works out for me.

I do have proof and etc of all conversations and logs, no idea how it will help my case, but hoping for the best. Wish i typed in satlogistics and scam in google first. This link came up in the top 5. I searched satlogistics.org and etc. Noticed their building was the time-life building. Did a phone number search and it showed NYC. Looked decent to me, Lady called me and talked to me for about 30 mins. Fuck. I feel like trash now....

Called my bank, can't sleep. Office not open until the morning so I'll have to deal with it later.

Anymore advice?

Thank you all for reading
#282882 by Tim Atem Thu Jan 28, 2016 7:53 am
I'm sorry they scammed you. So far you've done everything you can do, just make sure to print out all of your emails and take them to the bank with you as proof that you are a victim in this scam. It may not be able to change much with the bank, but it will be documented.

Is the scammer still using the same email address and contact information that's already been posted? If you have any new email addresses or phone numbers, please post them here to help other victims that may be searching the internet.

PLEASE DO NOT TELL A SCAMMER HE IS REPORTED HERE!

The only difference in number was on the acceptance file.

The number was 347-627-0045.

I waited for the credit card to be paid off, and saw that once the balance was available, it did not strike me as a scam. I thought that after paying off a credit balance and it reflects on the account, the funds have been pulled out of the bank account that paid the credit card.

Similarly, the process was to purchase gift cards. Now I know that I purchased them in store and I obviously cannot retrieve money back from the CC since those were made by me.

What should I do?
