Hi guys,

First of all thanks heaps for this site, getting bogus emails is kind of obvious these days, but for it to be affirmed in one google search makes life pretty difficult for these pains.

If your are new to hunting scammers try a couple of things:

Never do anything until they give you a full name and address and it checks out
Always insist on using your own courier company (even if you dont have one)
No cheques/checks if they can be avoided, and never ever any money transfers, exchange of bank details etc
Biggest rule: customer pays for goods and then things happen, never before

Anyway am basically adding my two cents so this also comes up in any keyword searches anyone else does and the scammers are using similar info. Scam follows (its backwards as i just copied emails so start at bottom):

Hi Mary, [Mary stopped writing after this email, wonder why...?]

Unfortunately we have our own shipping company that does all our international shipping exclusively; their prices are very competitive. My contact there has given me an all inclusive price of $3109, which will mean total cost of the order comes to $5806. Please provide your contact number and address, as well as payment details to finalize the order.

Kind regards,

We should all be aware of these scam shipping companies. They give nothing to us but a problem. So we must stay away from them. Instead, we should choose more reliable companies like the FedEx.
