    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    I have received one of these email scams. The signature line is..

    Susan Jones (CEO)
    Dores Shipping & Movers
    2324 Winesap Rd,
    Bothell, WA 98012
    Tel: 206-337-6886
    Fax: 206-333-0488
    E-mail: Movers001@Dores.com


    This address or company doesn't exist obviously. When I was slightly buying into this I did give my name and address to them as requested which i don't believe can really do much harm. They then proceeded to send me a check for about $2,457 from star's edge international which is an actual co in florida, check is a certified wachovia bank check. I was instructed to then get a price from usps to ship 20 laptops within my state for 3day delivery. Then they would be giving me instructions on paying a freight forwarding co to ship me the laptops which i would then send out these laptops through usps to there individual destinations in my state using the original check money the sent from stars edge int. Im guessing this check i received is somehow fraudulent funds that i make accesible to the freigh fwd co as an avenue to get these funds overseas. Not exactly sure. But i just wanted to warn others who come across this. I will obviously be trashing this check that was sent to me.

    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    zachj - you got almost the whole thing.

    the last step is: you would be instructed to pay the freight forwarding agent, by western union, after you had deposited the fake check in your own account. the trick is, your bank is required to make the cash available to you much sooner than they will find out the check is a fake. the bank isn't that worried because, you and you alone are responsible for every item you deposit.

    in this case they probably have you wire $2000 before your bank tells you that you deposted a fraudulant check and asks if you are free to chat with the police today.

    the name and address you sent the money to will be found to entirely fake because western union will pay out the money to anybody that knows the details of the transaction, that is, the amount, who sent it, and the transfer #, all of which you will provide to the scammer via email.

    oh, uh, your job is over. they won't answer your emails anymore after they have your money. yes, its your money, not the bank's money.

    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    @ Almacigo
    Thanks for posting up the email address and email itself from that scammer.

    That scammer is looking for people to print and send out his fake checks. Looks like he wants you to commit Federal mail fraud by sending out fake checks with the USPS. That is even worse than sending them out by UPS or Fedex. Committing mail fraud with the post office will get you sent to Federal prison not the local jail.

    the bill payments will be dispatch to clients at my expenses also none of your information will be included in this NO NAME,NO ADDESS NO SIGNATURE NO PHONE
    Except for the fake check he will want you to cash and then Western Union the cash back to the scammer using another of his fake names posing as the stamp supplier or something. Except for your fingerprints on the envelopes, the Federal government does not look kindly on mail fraud.

    Thanks again for posting up that information.

    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    This is Christopher Pederson,

    Me and my wife have just recently fell under the scamming powers of Mr. Jones Martins and I a sure that this for sure is a scam. We received 2 money orders in the amount of $985.01, the money orders where dated for 2010-12-12 and Mr. Martins did not contact me or my wife until Fri, Feb 11, 2011 11:22 am. Below will be the end results of my investigation thus-far. Anyways, me and my wife not wanting to take the chance of depositing false money orders, took the 2 money orders to our local post office and they themselves confirmed that they were counterfeit. They are both currently under investigation. Not only did this Mr. Martins contact us via Email, bur he also contacted us via Telephone.
    The checks are from CA, the address he uses is from VA but the Zip code on the money orders is from MI.
    The following address which is used in the email is fake as well, here is what I have found out.


    Fake:
    Clover Shipping Enterprises
    15250 Woodcrest dr
    Orange, Virginia 22960

    U.S.A.

    Real:
    http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/15...12438648_zpid/

    Go to the above link and you will see the actual property that is located at that address, it is not a business, see for yourself.

    The Clover Shipping Enterprises is at the following link please look for yourself so that you too can understand what is being done here.

    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    That is great information. You did the right thing, you went with your gut and then did some investigation. So many people who fall for these scams will tell you that they knew something didn't seem right, but they still move forward hoping for the best.

    Re: Mail Dispatcher Scam?

    Here is the most recent attempt at the mail dispatcher scam as of March 30th 2012. From: careers@everardconway.com


    Hello,

    I have Local Shipping and Dispatcher Position to offer you (A Local Forwarder is an intermediary who acts on behalf of companies or persons, organizing the safe, efficient and cost-effective transportation of goods to the final destinations). I came across your e-mail address through your posting online. I'm Everard Conway, I own a small rising shipping business and I tend to operate a high cost of operation and I want to cut down my expenses by employing shipping, receiving and dispatching agents in each state.

    For instance the cost of sending each mail is around $23 by United Parcel Service and if we want to send out 100 mails, that would cost us $2,300 but we have a solution whereby, we will ship the whole 100 mails in one package at the rate of $180 to you in your state and when you get it, you will open it and send the mail individually through USPS which will be between $2 to $3.50 for each and by doing this we would be saving a large amount of money. I need a reliable individual that will be committed and enthusiastic about the job. You will be paid $500 every week and this is a long time position.

    You will be provided with funds to pay freight forwarder, you will be provided with funds to pay for USPS to dispatch the mails upfront, you will be provided with up to $3,400.00 to $4,000.00 as a running fund for dispatching the mails, sometimes, it may be packages of goods that you will be receiving and sometimes you may be required to pay for shipping and freight fees out of the funds we will provide to pay another freight forwarder when we need the service of another freight forwarder. The items you will be re-mailing or shipping will include letters, office materials, office equipment’s, home theatre, electronics and some other general consumer goods.

    I want to assure you that you will never use your own money for any expenses and you are not require to buy anything to begin the job, the job will only take around 10-15 hours of your time in a week and you can work whatever hours you want. The job is very simple once you have an address where you can accept the goods, you can put those packages in your room or in your garage and if you did not have enough space we can arrange a storage unit. You will have to present an ID either driver's license or any other personal ID to show to the delivery man when packages will be delivered to you and you have to show some sense of sincerity as you will be entrusted with client’s mails, packages and funds to utilize for re-mailing expenses. Can you let me know when you are ready to start and requirements needed for this job, you will need to provide your information as well in order to proceed further.

    I have also received the same email. It is easy these days to spot a scam. They normally offer a way to make easy money with doing a very little job.I think you can see that it is a scam.
