Mail Order..........

This scam has the most hits and comments of any. Apparently this one actually works on the uninformed, sadly.

The Original Scam Letter

Hello Sales

Please, call me 'Soupy'

i would like to order some product from your store to mine in australia .so let me know if can ship down to australia so that i can email you the product i am interested in.

You are in luck. All we sell here at Soupy's Product, Inc. is product. Established in 1853 by my great grandfather, R. Product 'Soupy' Sales, as he noticed the increasing demand for product, we have been offering the highest quality product since product was invented. He started out with only 1 product and sold it under the catalog name 'Product P00001' and -- as you may have guessed -- we now have nearly 10,000 product in our product line.

The Product Board has just recently been discussing whether or not to ship product to Australia as this has been the only continent to which we do not ship product. By the way, the Australian people prefer it when you use a capital 'A.' I asked an Australian myself. (He was a handsome fellow with a cowboy hat pinned up on one side and kept going on about how my knife was not a real knife but his was -- his was huge! -- and kept talking about a shrimp named Barbie or something... I dunno, he had a strong accent.)

Anyway, if you can describe how large an order you might be placing for product, I may be able to convince the board that a large product order to Australia might be just the ticket.

also payment will be done via credit card details if you do accept that let me know so that i can place my order and the Items will be picked Up by my shipping Company at you store

But of course! Who, in this world, can do business (especially in the product market!) without the use of credit card details. Your having mentioned this consideration makes me really trust you to pay for your product from my store to yours. You appear to be a fine, upstanding gentleman by your use of credit card details.

Oh... wait a second... you have a shipping company, too? You are 'diversified,' aren't you? You are smart. We only sell product.

Anyway, to be safe, we'll use a shipping company I choose. It's better that way because there are some Nigerian scammers out there that order our product and then they overpay the invoice and then send their own shipping company to pick up the goods and they ask for cash back from the overpayment. So, in essence, what has happened all 16 times is that 1) I lose our product, 2) I pay my own, actual cash to the scammers, and 3) I end up with a handful of Monopoly Money.

I'm not falling for that again! Do I look stupid to you?
Nice try.

please Get back to me so that i can email you the items i am interested.

No need to do that... just tell me what you want from P00001 through P92007 and I will have it shipped from my store to yours.

  3. thanks to afriend of mine I am now aware of this scam, it almost caught me out, I was thinking if I get the money up front what could go wrong? but something wasn't right, so I sent the email, (which funily enough is almost the same as these ones here, same adress in Australia, signed by a Micheal Marie though) to my internet wise friend Dave and he sent me to this site! Phew close shve or what, thank you for having this site, well done!

  4. if they pick the item up, what would it matter if you ship to australia?

    pretty sad scam

  5. Thanks! I was thinking, gee, that's awful grammar for a supposedly English speaking country. When I hunted the address down, I came to your blog. Now I know I can safely ignore it.

  8. Just got the same email scam here... trying to get us to charge 6 different credit cards and also charge an additional $1900 so that we can pay the courier to come and pick the product up. Oddly enough, "Luda" also called here and caller ID showed a 234 country code (which is Nigeria)...

    ReplyDelete
  9. I just got the Luda email too, on Sept 23 2009, and thanks to Google I found your blog. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I am so glad I Google every part of an e-mail I do not trust. BIG THANK YOU for posting this information as I too received the same e-mail from Luda. If only they would learn English grammar, it might have a better chance.
    Have a fun day!

Thanks very much for the warning, much appreciated.

  28. Hello all else out there who have been contacted by these people.

    I get around 20-30 calls a week asking for Luda Johnson as it is our phone number they have been using in many of their emails! We tell all who calls to NEVER deal with these dodgy morons! They have wasted so much of our time, no to mention that of all those who call me to check out the legitimacy of the emails.

    Now they are using a street address close to us but now Warburton as the suburb, they just get more and more stupid as time goes on. Well I guess they wouldn't bother if some folk weren't falling for it? Guess the "we'll send out shipping company" has worked for them in the past. My first week on the job and I nearly accepted a parcel they had ordered, luckily my manager was onto it and noticed it was addressed to Luda Johnson.

    Dave, good on you for creating this website, a great community service you are offering.

  33. The scam is still in place. This time, they actually contacted a newspaper office and tried to have us ship them "product"!! I responded politely indicating they probably had the wrong e-mail since they were contacting a newspaper, got the same e-mail back, googled, and found this.

    Too bad I don't have time or funds to fly to Australia (or more likely, Nigeria) and do an article on these idiots.

  42. Same con - the key is they always want you to ship to some transhipper - often in Singapore ( I've actually contacted the SEB(Singapore Economic Board) about these scams - offered to cooperate in a sting. Mentioned how this reflects on Singapore - no responce or detecable action.

    Boy did they do their legwork! They logged onto my store and picked a few items but never actually used my descriptions, asking me for quotes and then to this place and that and then saying they'd get it shipped. Domain in India, IPs from central U.S. I didn't want to give him an official invoice as I presume they'd use it to bill other people with and next thing you know we'd see my address up there!

  53. Just received same Ricketts Mart scam but not falling for this again...just before Christmas here in LA, California I received an email from a customer Annie Lennon, NSW, Australia with interest in our product. Claimed in dire need of goods to be shipped asap via her carrier of which we needed to charge her credit card with transportation charges & forward to carrier in advance so pick up would be secured (via wire transfer)...we were duped about 1800.00 USD & able to cancel a second transfer once credit card company called us with fraud alert. We were able to save 1200.00 USD...Glad this site popped up!!! Saved me lots of time & energy!

  54. I was stupid enough to think that Dixon Mark actually wanted to purchase from my online store. This is the last letter I got from him before I realized he was trying to scam me:

    Thanks for the total quote of my order.The total cost of my order is quite correct and okay by me and I'm ready to pay the bills.I shall inform my freight forwarder who will be coming to pick up the order to hold on and come immediately you inform me that the items are ready for pick up then i can give you a call on that day to get the items packed for pick up and they will call you on their arrival at your address.Also I want you to help me Charge another $520 from my card for the freight forwarder who will be coming to pick up my ordered items from you.
    The $520 that will be sent to the freight forwarder is for the shipping of my order and other items i ordered from different part of the country which is to be picked up by him and should be deducted from my credit card.Also, I'm compensating you with the sum of $120 for the transfer fee and for your efforts. Please note that i should have given the shipping agency my credit card for him to deduct the freight charges but he told me that he doesn't have the facilities to charge or debit credit card , so that's why i bring my vote of confidence in you and i want you to assist me in this measure, so i want you to transfer the funds to him after you have make the charges and the money charged from my credit card is in your account,then you can now make the transfer to the agent via western union.i will have love to
    do this my self but there are no western union here around me cos i am out of town to monitor my estate construction at a remote village,So the charges you'll make on my credit card will be:

    Order Fee:$885.70
    Agent fee: $520
    Transfer Fee with shipping fare : $120
    Total: $1525.70

    Note that my credit card will be charged for the amounts above.Please do get back to me if you are in the office right now so that i can forward my credit card details to you, then you can charge the funds to him via western union.

    Thanks for your co-operation & understanding.

    Pity the Nigerian Government dosent do something about them. I run a charity in East Africa and many nigerian scamers even scam the poor folk of Uganda and Kenya. Lot of people in Africal are in REAL need of help and these scammers give the decent people there a bad name.

  57. Well, Suzy E. you just missed an opportunity to get more hits at your site and expose your music to more people, possibly making legitimate sales. How? Well, right here you didn't include a link to your site! (This is how spam works... it can be a good thing).

    I was siuspicious, but still glad to read your

  60. Thanks for the great site and information because here this guy is again. We Google mapped the address and it is in the middle of a roundabout in Queensland. Would be good if he were there - he could get run over and over and over and over...

    Australia, ph:+619 5093-7750, Email johnny.grant05@sify.com and is the same as the one received in the UK on the 16th of Feb.

    My trick on these emails is to Google a whole sentence of poor English as a phrase - the email addresses and names keep changing.

  65. Hi all

    Yeah we've received this loser's email as well. I was excited initially as we are selling products for our orphanage in Sri Lanka and they ordered 45 polo shirts. I packaged the goods, got the quote and then thought I might just check these guys out. I'm so glad I decided to google it and found Scam and Eggs. Thanks so much for saving us from whatever it is this scam is hoping to achieve.

    I wish there was something we could do about this but actually I don't really want to give them any more of my time and energy.

    These people are certainly a nuisance. I sent back a reply stating the above. I also check the properties on emails like this and you can bet there will always be a giveaway, like norely in one of the address lines...

  78. I got the Tom Marks one from Hirosho Investment. I laughed so hard I nearly fell off my chair when I googled the name and this site came up. There is another email I received back before Christmas, a guy from the States (supposedly) who wanted to buy my jewellery and sell it in stores over there. All I had to do was pay him $300AUD for him to set up my account... well the alarm bells went off... I ignored him but he does send one every now and then, spouting the same crap...

  79. Hi David,
    I almost fell for this scam. Below is the email message that was provided. I even went to my supplier, but after asking for a cost, decided to check online, and discovered that they are part of scam. Their email address has changed twice. Name was Chris, now Luda Johnson.

    BTW, I searched for the shipping address:
    "21/49 Norcal Road Nunawading, Victoria Australia" and came up with your scamandeggs site.

    If you have time, I am sure that they will get everything they deserve.

  81. I got one from Kerry Wilshere at Hiroshi Imvesment in Tokyo (very bad English grammar)asking me to send 100 pairs of earrings at a cost of £1,800 and to use Access Logistics Ltd to arrange delivery. Once I had got a quote from their email address: accesslogistics01@gmail.com, she would send me a scanned copy of her Mastercard so I could take payment. She hadn't even asked for wholesale prices but took the price from my retail site (even though she had emailed my wholesale email address). Oh, how I chuckled.

    Having said the above I would also like to inform of ANOTHER scam. Last year I ordered 4 x 44 gallon drums of coconut oil (I make soap). The order was placed with with Faisal Ali from Lautoka FIJI who owns Ester Maria Exports. We paid in full $3,030.00...He is not answering phone calls nor has our money been returned. I hope to visit Lautoka one day and introduce myself.

  88. I usually string these things along for a while.
    This is my probably last reply to Chris. He requested prices on 60 spoons, snail forks and bar wipes. When I sent him the cost he decided he needed 1000 of each!

    Chris, thanks for the order. It will take a while for me to work up the costs as I may be able to get better pricing on these quantities.
    In the mean time you might check out this site for more information.

  102. There is a new one e-mail from the UK for the Williams Company PLC. Micheal Williams is the purported CEO. It includes the name of the shipper (Access Logistics Ltd.) and their e-mail address. I found the shippers website and sent the e-mail with Williams account number and received a confirmation e-mail with a quote for shipping. It included the Western Union payment method to an individual identified as their accountant. Paying via Western Union to an individual sounded ludicrous so I e-mailed the shipper directly via their website contact and they informed me that this is a fraud and that they have forwarded all of the information to the Police. I received two different Visa numbers from Williams, both of which were declined by my merchant card company. I am out nothing but my time.

    Not a week later I received the Hiroshi Investments Japan version from Mike Johnson. This time the shipper is AIR SEA ROAD INTERNATIONAL LTD. It includes the same approach.

    Be careful out there.

    You should also be on the lookout for anyone using the name SMITH COLE as that was the first guy who tried this scam and unfortunately succeeded. I can't remember the name of the company that they used unfortunately.

    We had another possible that used the name Craig Williams and the name of the company was Dynamic Supply which was supposedly out of TX even though the phone number he gave had a Seattle WA area code, and they wanted us to ship to Thailand.

    From: Craig Williams [mailto:dynamicsupplyinc@copper.net]
    Sent: Monday, April 26, 2010 2:12 AM
    Subject: International Order Inquiry

    Sales,

    I am Craig Williams, I will like to order some of your products from our Texasoffice U.S and I will want it shipped to our Head office as follows :

    Shipping Address:
    14th Floor United Nations Building
    Rajdamnern Nok Avenue
    Bangkok 10200
    Thailand

    Therefore hope to hear from you soon regarding my inquiry.Do provide yourwebsite while i check with the available products you have for immediatepurchase. Lastly regarding payment i will be sending you my credit card tocharge for my order to avoid delays but can you let me know the type of creditcards you accept?

    I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

    Thanks and Regards

    NOTE IN TERMS OF SHIPPING THAT CAN BE ARRANGED WITH THE RIGHT SHIPPING COMPANYAND PAPER WORK TO THE SHIPPING ADDRESS DESTINATION

    Company Name: Dynamics Supply Inc
    2412 Yorktown St
    Houston, TX 77056
    USA
    Craig Williams
    dynamicsupplyinc@in.com

    I think they are giving international addresses because it is harder to investigate them here in the US once their courier picks up the product from a warehouse they can divert it anywhere they want to.

    THANKS AGAIN FOR THE INFO ON THIS AUSSIE SCAMMER

  111. I emailed back to these people with product information before googling and finding it was a scam. They got back to me with the quantity of product they wanted to have "picked up by their shipping agent" and everything. I don't understand this scam, but I'm thankful that this site was available to me, and all of us who are in the SCAM file. Yikes!

  113. Had the same email from Gabriel Peters wanting goods from my store in Australia to go to Japan. The fraud section of the bank checked up the credit cards and they were compromised cards from New Jersey. They explained the scam this way - you get the money via credit card then have to send a payment to the shipping company via Western Union using cash or funds directly from your account. In a month or so the real owner of the credit card sees an entry that they query and the bank comes back to you to reimburse the card. Once you have made the cash payment to the shipping line you probably don't hear from Gabriel Peters again. Thanks all for this site - they almost got me!

You can mail me once you receive the total cost of shipment and other handling fees, I will send you a copy of my credit card information for you to make appropriate charges.

    They will need the information below from you. send a mail to them at globalshippingint@gmail.com

  136. We got this email today:
    "Good day,

    I want to place an order in your store,and I will like to know if you ship to Tokyo,JAPAN and my payment will be remitted via Visa/Master Card issued in US bank. So please let me know if you can assist me with the order,and please do not forget to include your website in your reply.Your quick response will be highly appreciated,I will be very glad if you treat this email with good concern.

    Regards,
    Tom Mark"
    which seemed a bit suspicious, especially since the email had "undisclosed recipients" in the copy section, and a different reply address was programmed into it than the one it was sent from. The reply email address Googled to your scam and eggs site--thanks! I'd replied politely to the original email address first, since we do sometimes get oddly worded inquiries from overseas.
    Guess my next reply will be:
    "Please correct your address to read: Scammers 'R' Us," and your credit card information to read, "Stolen" before we can process your order."

  137. Below is an email I received last month. We recently attended a trade show where we were approached by a few companies in Australia. When I received the email I was not alarmed at first. I sent a few responses but did not receive a response back. When I would call the phone number it was always busy. I finally decided to Google their information which I do for a lot of my international customers to verify shipping information. When I do, it will usually pull up the company name and address which lead me here.

    When I did the search, there were several posts that came up but the title "Scam & Eggs" caught my attention (love the name by the way lol). I read through many of the posts and feel a little annoyed that I wasted a few days on this "potential lead". Thanks to Dave and everyone else posting their information.

    Regards,

    Jon

After having put all of these in my spam bin, I once decided to invent an entire identity and let the criminal call me on my mobile phone. This idiot really believed that I am ready to follow up on his stupid plans and it was my fun to let him call me international from his african crook town and in this way make him pay at least phone bills for nothing. Once I had enough of this little pleasures to make pay a crook and steal his time, I blocked off his number and he gave up. Nicolas Peucelle

  158. We are a Blue Mountain coffee retailer online (My Soul Cafe)and we received 2 inquires / orders back to back: one from Australia and one from Japan. We actually believed the Japanese one until the "shipping company" was suggested to us. That's when I was fortunate to come across this website - THANK YOU! This was the communication flow in summary:

    1. Chris Sure (chrisure011@gmail.com) wanted to place order, and asked what's in stock. We directed to our website
    2. Actual order was provided with suggestion to use his preferred shipping company "airexpressfreight". We contacted the company for a quote and they did not respond. Chris Sure started getting impatient and told us to contact "airexpressfreight" again, which we did and got an actual response from

    with your website/price list.I will await your prompt response

    OK, the english wasn't the best, but I've worked with Philippinos. It's that he hadn't seen my website that was curious, then again I get blog referrals from shaving sites for my shaving mugs/scuttles...

    Funny though, I replied to ausxxa@gmail.com but his email address was Stephen Bright this come up with no such address: I check on google and got some kind of X-Antiabuse line for ausxxa@gmail.com....

    Then: I put his whole letter into the google search and came up with you! Thanx again...

    Hope it's not going to have bad karma for this years sales! Best wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year, Cheers Helena

    PS: I checked out you too, not getting paranoid, just checking, and wow, Love your art! I have only just started oil painting these past 3 months and have been told I'm a natural! LOVE IT!

    Just one more thing! It's odd, I'm in Australia and correspond with Canada a lot and wonder if there is a connection there?

    The courier company asked for payment from a Western Union, which makes sense as their corporate head office seems to be inside a Western Union branch that is located at the very same address.

    Mr Lii of course only wants to pay by credit card.

    This is obviously a scam to hit us for the $900 courier charges.

    I received an email from Jonnie Rickets, similiar to some of the emails others have received but for no request of his own shipping company. I told him we only accept direct wire transfer of money on international orders. Credit Cards can be like a bad cheque, it will initially process, but if it a stolen card, your bank will scoop the money out of your account as soon as they have a fraud reported, sometimes 2 weeks after the transaction has gone through. It's almost like getting an NSF cheque. This has happened to me once already, so wire transfer of money is my policy only on large international orders.
    Poor grammar is a big tip off in emails like this. Below is the address in the email

    he wants me to take his credit card payment - asked him to process through paypal - so if it's a scam - paypal should catch it - if they send me a receipt, I'm guessing it's legit?
    pretty big order -

  184. Who allows these simpletons to get away with this crap. Look guys we all laugh at the appalling English they use but that's good cos' we can i.d. it as a scam straight away, i mean come on, 'My dearest' and 'upmost urgency'!!!What??? remember if it even appears not right use your business instinct. It usually isn't wrong. These morons must be absolutely brainless to think they can get away with bull like this. Stop wasting your and OUR time you cretins... were wise to you. Keep up the great work on this site and encourage others out there to highlight these criminals....

  185. Yet another one to watch. John Moore (ain't that a mail order catalogue in the U.K.?)from cruz00112@mail2world.com asking for your permission to be his partner to help him spend vast amounts of non existent money he doesn't have but hey it's all perfectly safe. I could be Cornwall's version of Mad Frankie Frasier (sorry no disrespect meant Frankie)or a mad axe murderer, but he trusts me...he's never met me before, but hey that's another dead give-away, WE just DO NOT give away our money to strangers like that in the west! so it must be fine. It must be legal and above board, straight as a dye, white as the driven snow, all ship shape and Bristol fashion ...no that last one ain't right, but you get the gist of it.. Watch em, they're out there..

  186. Received the same email dated 4/4/2011. Still communicating with Chris Miller of Chris Hat Brother Limited at 19 Norcal Road Nunawading, Victoria Australia 3131 Phone (+61) 9873 7677 Fax (+61) 9873 7655. He wants to order over $3000 in hats. Suddenly his "shipping agent" will not accept credit or debit card payments from him at this time (bells and whistles!!!).If I weren't so honest, I would love to scam him!
