i want to thank your posts, otherwise i would have fallen for the scam. I thought it was a geniune order until the person got to the orphans part, really low. Got me thinking...why would an orphanage order from another country, when it would be so much more expensive then if they purchased it from locally?
Once again thank you!!

I just had a gentleman by the name of Mr Kelvin Smith email me regarding a bulk order of printer cartridges. In the initial email he also enquired about sprinklers???? At this point the red flag went up. I gave him a price, via email for the cartridges.
He followed the email up with a phone call. I couldnt understand what he was saying except for the part about shipping to Sth Africa. I told him I did not understand what he wanted me to do. Mr Kelvin Smith then told me he would email me the shipping details.
In this email was the requested delivery address. The address was for 'South African Charity Homes and Orphans'.
Now, I know its a sad world we live in when the red flags come up as soon as orphanages are mentioned, but I googled the shipping address and your website came up with the same address.
I thankyou very very much for sharing all your information. It has stopped me from being duped. I am a fairly generous and trusting person and probably would have gone ahead with the sale.
Once again, thankyou all for sharing
Craig McDonald

___________________

I searched on google for the orphanage's address (because "street Ave" doesn't make sense) and thankfully found this forum, scamvictimsunited.com. I then asked Marry to send her phone number and address. Here's the reply:

"Hello xxxx
My contact number is 5123776717 and i will like you to contact the shipper that will come to your location and pick it up and as soon as you contact them let me know the charge so that i can make payment with my master card

Thank you
Marry"
____________________

I called the number and an automated message said that the number has been switched off or is outside my coverage area. I've asked Marry again to send her address. I'll update this post if she replies.

My company is located in Canada; does anyone have any suggestions of where I can send this information?

Thank you.
