Hi Dam, yes, that's scam, they want you to act as the "mule", you would then be receiving packages, which would be mostly goods won at auctions like ebay, and sent to you by the victim, for you to pass on to another address in Eastern Europe, like Russia for example.

Or, they will purchase electronic goods from the internet with stolen credit cards and phished accounts, and have those goods sent to your address, for you to again forward to them in Europe, when red flags finally go up and people complain about being ripped off, the buck stops at your door, as that's where they were sent to.

The scammer is mailing you from the Netherlands according to their IP address:

It's not surprising that you can't find out much about this company, their website domain was only registered a few days ago, I have also seen the same website template used in other similar fake couriers and fake escrow sites, here is the Who-Is for the domain:

Thanks for the info. The strange part is they responded to my email in which I pretty much told them they are scammers without having to say it directly. Why bother to respond to me when they could have walked away and tried someone else? Plus whats this with sending me equipment and then me repacking it and shipping it. Why not ship it directly from their end? Too strange to pass up stringing them along. The only info they have is the address for email and maybe my resume from pulling it off of monsters if they did. Other then that I never game them any info and never had it in my mind to do it LOL. I just love stringing them along.
Any help in stoping them I am all for doing it so you do your thing and I will keep pisting this all over. Just put it over at I am a member there and have been for years.

Many scammers will carry on mailing you even when you blatently call them a scammer, it's all part of the scammers psychology, the intended victim thinks they have called them out as scamemrs, and are then surprised that they respond, this tends to make many victims more trusting.

The thing with getting the goods sent to a mule, is just to put another obstacle in the way of law enforcement. It's wiser for the scammer to have it sent to a victim acting as a mule.

This is how the mule scam pans out, true story: ... over_x.htm

How a reshipment gets done

USA TODAY examined a paper trail of e-mails, letters, credit card statements, packing receipts and mailing labels that Karl kept of his work as a mule and pieced together this account of an illegal reshipment:

April 18. Someone from a bogus Web site at the center of the scam,, tests a $1 charge on, a prize-giveaway Web page, using a Bank One Visa credit card number stolen from Brian Spoutz, a 48-year-old San Jose, Calif., software salesman. A Visa investigator notified him about the compromised card in May, Spoutz says.

April 20. uses Spoutz's Visa card to place an order at for a $2,607 digital camera and extra memory. It directs shipment of two separate parcels to a home in Gilroy, Calif.

April 22. FedEx attempts to deliver the parcels, but the reshipper in Gilroy has gotten cold feet and rejects the delivery. Using FedEx's online tracking, Michael Birman of notes the failed delivery, contacts FedEx and redirects delivery to Karl in Grass Valley, Calif. Birman then alerts Karl via e-mail to watch for the two parcels.

April 23. Birman goes to Using a hot credit card number, Birman purchases a $48 Global Express Mail shipping label addressed to Roman Radeckiy in Moscow, then downloads the new label as a JPEG image file. Birman attaches the JPEG file to an e-mail to Karl, instructing Karl to combine the two parcels into one box, affix the label and mail to Radeckiy.

April 24. FedEx delivers the parcels to Karl in Grass Valley.

April 27. Karl prints out the JPEG label. Karl repacks the camera and memory into one box, affixes the printed JPEG label and completes the reshipment.

"The operation was amazing," says Karl. "It was highly coordinated."

OMG and here I thought I saw the worst with the checks and money order scams.

NBC Dateline correspondent Chris Hansen did a story on this very scam a couple of months ago. Different scammers but so many innocent peopel were tricked into receiving goods and reshipping them. They had to prove their innocence in the scam, and it was a true nightmare for those people. The best thing to do is ignore the email and cut off contact. .
