I'm researching potential suppliers of used tires for a family friend and keep coming across what can only be scammers. Prices are just a bit too good, quality just a bit too high... He's been scammed twice by putting deposits on container loads of tires that never arrive.
After dealing with another person today that stated "You need to put down a 50% deposit before you can come meet us in person" I'm just so bloody sick of it. Some of these people even have fake websites. I found one that is a copy of a US company's site with the names and contact info changed.
Are there any tools out there to expose these scammers? I've learned what I can from WhoIs, I reverse image search their website pictures and I cross reference their emails with G+ and LinkedIn currently. Do you all have any other tools for me or skills at blowing the lid off scammers?
