Warning: Fake shipping company scam
Share this article:
My customers "name" was Tim Harris -Opportunity Supplies. I was given 3 different credit cards before one passed. He was very eager to pay for his order and even more eager for me to pay the freight forwarder. Virtual Forwarding and Logistics 5689 Faanofa Street Ave, Accra Ghana 00233. They wanted me to wire the money to a account under the name John Adane. My company would not allow the wire so an overnighted check was going to be made. The forwarder gave a totally different name to make the check out to and wanted it overnighted to a California apt. address. I google both the company name and the forwards name with no hit. However, I did see this site right away. Everything that is stated to watch for has happened to me. I made my company aware of the issues. We did some of our own investigating and fraud does seem to be the issue. We have made contact with the credit card company as well. Oh yes, I asked the forwarder to call me direct and he said he was unable to get through several times and when he did call me , we were disconnected once money was being spoken of. Then I received an e-mail 2 minutes later saying they were going to close the file. I forwarded that e-mail to the client and he replied back immediatly with " CANCEL ENTIER ORDER". I am happy to say we cancelled this order and lost no money.

I have ordered samples of oil from Ukraine. The supplier accepted to Ship via express and I shall pay after proof of shipment. It seems that he has sent using a company called "Trench Express delivery", I never heard about this company before. Who knows this company? The seller is calling every time to ask if I have paid via western union, so I have a bad feeling regarding this deal. If anyone knows this company warn me. When I go inside the website of this express company, the information is very light, nothing about the company, just the possibility to track your product and nothing more. HELP PLEASE!!
