I have been scammed out of $150. I know that i am not getting that money back; I just want to warn others. I can afford to lose that money but other potential victims might be in a worse financial situation.

I suffer from a chronic disease and found some meds at a good price on India Mart from a so called verified seller. I know the dangers of buying meds online, but when you are uninsured and the price of these meds are sky high, it clouds your judgement.

I placed an order from a seller listed on India Mart. The sellers name is Venkat Pharma LTD (https://www.indiamart.com/company/77548253/ and I placed an order for Arthritis Medication to be delivered to my current address in South East Asia. After making a western union payment ( to an individual in India) I was contacted with the so called courier company (http://www.globalworlddelivery.com) with a tracking number. Over the next few days i checked on their website and saw my parcel move from country to country. After a few days the status showed on hold in vietnam. I was then contacted by the courier asking for more money for the parcel to be released. I believe there was never any product. The seller from India Mart (Venkat Pharma LTD) is the same person operating the so called courier website (Global World Delivery).

I am still in communication with the fake courier. Like I said, not looking to get my money back, just need to warn others. Any ideas what else I should do?

Thank you for your help.

go to this sitehttps://www.econsumer.gov/#crnt and file a report.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

Thank you Mike; I just filed a report.

After a few searched on google, I also figured that these guys are using different websites for their scam:

https://www.globalworlddelivery.com/

https://www.ziprologistics.com/service/internation-air-freight/

https://www.fastwayglobaldelivery.com/home/freight.php

I sent an email to the hosting company: namecheap.com but doubt they will follow up.
