Hi

I got this scam this week. Pasting the information here so it shows up in future Google searches as it's in another name. It was the freight company that made me Google...and I also looked up Google Street View to see what was in the address listed...another store with a current website (so not closed) but a different name.

Looks like they have another shipping name and email address.

Very thankful for this website as I was very close to going through with sale. Was contacted same way as others, order was even typed out like the shea butter order on this forum. Couldn't use UPS due to remote area. Had to be their shipper which only accepted RIA. Buyer could not use PayPal... emails are lengthy but I want to be able to help someone else like this site helped me. After seeing these post I simply replied, " can not continue transaction at this time. I have canceled previously emailed invoice.
------------------------------------------------
I am waiting to hear back from you so i can move on with the payment.

Sophie,

I just provided all information to UPS and they are quoting $500 for same 3 to 5 day service. I think this would be a much easier and cost effective option as there wouldn't be the extra $70 and no one would have to make special transfers. Please let me know if you are open to this option so that I may update your invoice

Same Scam from [email protected]


Hello,
Thanks for your reply back with the total quote of my order, I really appreciate you getting back to me.
We have experienced lots of difficulties when it comes to receiving shipment to our address here in The Netherlands, We're located in a very remote area of the city, which cause us a lot of hindrance in receiving shipment in the past. I want you to contact my shipper which i use every time i purchase order worldwide via the below e-mail address about my order [email protected] with the weight and dimension inclusive the value for insurance quoting my customer ID #MK78742928F. They will deliver the shipment to me door to door,their cost will include the custom clearance and handling cost with my order. They will come pick my order up at your location when the shipment is ready. I will need you to obtain a quote and tell them that i want to Insure the package and I will like you to get back to me with overall cost of the items with the details from my shipper.
Once I have these details, I will get back to you with my credit card details immediately for payment.
God Bless you (Amen),

Kind Regards,

Below is the information for someone trying to scam me. They of course wanted me to pay the shipping company directly, after they paid me in full. I advised both the shipper and the "customer" that the "customer" would be paying for shipping directly. I'm pretty sure I will not hear back from him. I'm hoping that by posting their info, it will help someone identify the scam.

Thank you so much for posting this. We were contacted by the same person wanting to make a purchase from our store. But when I got the total for shipping to Australia, 2-3 express air mail and it was almost the same as shipping in the states, a huge red light went off. At first I was going to see how far he would take it, but now I’m not going to waste my time. Thank you again so much!

**Went back and forth for a few emails, and it became immediately suspect for how fast they ordered material. I received this:


Kindly get me the quote plus tax without the freight cost for now.it will be pick up from your location

Regards

**Sent him the estimate as he asked and then received a confirmation to order and then:

Alright.kindly go ahead and get me the shipping cost from the Bayou Board Shipping so we can complete the full payment at once.

Regards

**I responded:

Can we use a different freight line?

Saying Bayou Board Shipping is not legitimate.

**"Shawn Hendrix" came back with:

No, sorry.



(Well that was the end of that scam but seriously annoying and wasted my time getting quotes)
