    Mr. Robert Mills

    I have received 3 emails from this person. My assistant replied to him once... now he sent another one. Looks like a scam. Here is the email.

    I have also received this email several times in the last few months (mills3008@yahoo.com).
    I have also received an email with the same wording from "Scott Miller" (smiller3006@gmail.com).
    I did reply yesterday to Robert Mills and received a reply today asking for large quantities of several of our lines. Over £1,000 worth, but he didn't ask for any discount on buying bulk and he asked for the total price without freight - both making me suspicious. Hence a search on google for Robert Mills where I see numerous mentions of his scam. Thank goodness for the internet and shared knowledge!

    Yes this grubby little moron is currently trying this on my business as well ordering heaps of gear that he obviously know very little about.

    Eventually he will want to pay be Credit Card (more than likely stolen) then decide he wants a refund. This he will ask, Iím sure, to be debited direct to his account.

    I have seen this scam before. Don't succumb to the T*RD!

    100% scam. Scammers have branched out into stealing money from small business owners along with c raigslist, ebay and spammy emails.

    There are several variations:
    1) Pay by credit card, scammer wants you to 'overcharge' the card and monygram the 'extra' to the 'shipper'. The credit card is stolen and the 'shipper' is the scammer himself.
    2) Pay by credit card but disaster strikes and scammer has to cancel the order, could you moneygram the 'refund' back to him? Again, the credit card is stolen.
    3) Pay by check, scammer send extra, wants you to cash check and Western Union the 'extra' to the 'shipper', who is really the scammer. Check is fake and bounces the next week.
    4) Pay by check, but oopsie, the scammer's assistant sent the too much and could you Western Union the excess back to the scammer? Again, check is fake.

    Anyone who places any size order and:
    1) Demands you use/pay his never-heard-of-shipping-company.
    2) Asks you to charge an overage on a credit card.
    3) Wants you to cash a large check for him.
    4) Mentions Western Union or moneygram.
    5) Insists on using an 'escrow' company for 'your protection'.
    6) Has to cancel the order and has to have the 'refund' immediately.

    Is a scammer, always.

    The latest variation is a scammer places an order, pays, the items are shipped and everything goes perfect. Then the scammer places a huge order and sends the fake check/stolen credit card/spoofed paypal and the small business owner is out the products and payment.

    Re: Mr. Robert Mills

    I agree this looks like a scam. We had 2 requests come in on the same day. Different e-mail addresses. It is interesting on the 2nd one the e-mail it came in from is different than what is listed under his name. Just thought I would pass these along.

    Re: Mr. Robert Mills

    We just received a request from Mr. Roland Woods for large amounts of our products and we thought it was strange. We did reply to see if he was serious, then he replied that we should go ahead and process the order and that we should contact his shipper and come up with a total price for him to ship the products to Ghana. He said he would pay with a credit card, but I don't buy it!!!
