Hi,

Anyone heard of DAB TRADING LTD, they claim to be multimillion dollar business located in Landon UK, but their address is used by many other registered companies it sounds to be business forwarding address, their domain name was registered on 2014 and they have reviews from customers back from 2011 on their website. When I call their phone number it is computer generated voice message. they are trusted Alibaba account (we all know how easy to get trusted by Alibaba).
Contact person is Dean Bernard.
Anyone has information about this company please share with me.

Best Regards

There is a registered company called DAB Trading Ltd, which has an expired website dab-trading.com listed on the site I looked at. The company was registered in March 2013 and its address is an accommodation address.

What website were you directed to?

ETA: Found this site http://www.dab-trading.co.uk/ - registered in April and offering brand name electricals at too good to be true prices. It's a scam.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

…. there are a whole host of red flags.

The spelling, grammar and syntax isn't that used by a competent UK entity.

Parts of the site are barely comprehensible.

We pay small and medium insolvent companies Government and Bank debts, avoiding the Company to enter in legal (very difficult and complicated) dissolving procedures, this way we enter in possession of their entire stock and save the items from being sequestered.


There are many more examples.

The testimonials include some dated prior to the formation of the company

:shock:

Proof of the scam

XXX,

Payment can be made in three ways: Local Pick up(company warehouse/appointment), Alibaba Escrow and Bank Transfer (T/T).

For Alibaba Escrow service, please see http://escrow.aliexpress.com/

The above service allows you to test the merchandise before we receive payment. This way we avoid any misunderstandings and we are both sure we will receive exactly what we are after.

All orders paid by Bank Transfer benefit of the same warranty and return policy. Plus, in case of a refund request, the funds are automatically re-sent to the initial buyer, after the refund request had been validated, thus saving time and additional fees that might occur when dealing with third party services.

Any method you will chose, shipping is free and estimated delivery time is 2-5 days.
For shipping, we collaborate with: Hapag Lloyd, DHL, UPS, FedEx, Royal Mail, EMS and TNT at buyers choice.
Minimum order: 1 LOT
Please let me know what payment method would you like to use. So, I can prepare all necessary agreements.
For more then one lots ordered I will be able to offer discount, for example for 2 lots 3%, 3 lots 4%, 4 lots and more 5%.

With esteem,

I started the transaction with Alibaba Escrow. For this region, Europe, all the transactions are processed manually so from our experience it will not be processed until Monday.
Please get back to me and let me know when Alibaba gets in touch with you.

Thank you,

Very interesting.

There's no way of knowing whether or not these are personal or company accounts, but firstly it appears there is a suggestion that they are connected with Alibaba and secondly they are offering to provide financial services (namely that of an escrow company).

Whereas with money mule accounts the account holder can avoid prosecution by maintaining that they are dupes, this is more difficult when the account name is directly associated with any fraudulent activity, moreso if it is a company name.
