    I can't even begin to explain how helpful this forum is! I run 3 different billiard accessory sites and the amount of fraudulent emails I get are ridiculous! I just ran across this site by googling someone's email address that I was suspicious about. Instead of wasting more than 10 minutes trying to land an order for someone who is just going to rip me off, I figured out within a minute to ignore and delete the email! THANK YOU!!!!

        good thread this... got an email sent to me from...

        rickbarry89@gmail.com

        1st off, they sent it to the email which was associated with the website designer, not the company, so instantly it looked dodgy (very bot like). 2nd, the grammar was very poor.

          What an ace forum !
          I got an e-mail from a joker asking for some products of ours. Didnt really seem genuine. So dropped his e-mail address into Google and found the threads from this forum. I am playing now with this guy to see how far he is prepared to go. Watch out for these e-mail addresses:

            I just got an identical e-mail (for traffic cones). Actually, I got it 3 times. Twice addressed to my e-mail and a third time addressed to someone else.

            Having managed an online store for 4 years now, I have learned how to spot likely scam artists. Here are a few hints:

            * Grammar is terrible
            * E-mail address originating from G-Mail (sorry Google but your service is used by a lot of scam artists). Any e-mail originating from a free e-mail account will make me look twice but G-Mail is the worst.
            * Asking for information that is readily available on your website.
            * Inquiring about unusually high quantities of products
            * Wanting to have a third-party shipper pickup the order

            These are just the more blatant scam indicators. My general response to them is to check the website for all current products, along with out terms and conditions. We will not ship our on a third-party shipper and we do not ship to freight forwarders unless it is for a known customer. I will also asked them to call in and speak to their assigned sales rep, if they cannot find what they want on our website. If they are reluctant to call, I simply tell them that we do not do sales via e-mail.

            When in doubt, do not hesitate to call the customer. Legitimate customers are pleased that you are looking after their best interests ( along with your own). Use available online tools like Searchbug.com for reverse people searches.

                  I also got an email requesting a list of 2005-2010 Corvette car covers we had instock from this same Richard Morrison. I emailed him back a list of the various car covers we had instock and the next day he emailed me back with the styles he wanted. He told me he wanted 60 covers and requested that we contact a shipper he liked to use to ship to Germany. It's not to out of the ordinary for us to get large Corvette part orders going to Germany. I thought it was weird when the shipping company contacted us with a ship quote over $3200. I contacted Richard back and told him we could locate cheaper freight for him. I got suspicious when he said that he would only use this particular shipper and wanted to pay for the covers and freight all together ($9500) and have us handle the transaction with the ship company he requested. I searched his address and found this forum!

                  Thanks,

                        Scammer Majid hawal &lt;majidhawal13@hotmail.com&gt;

                        This person contacted my company via email from a supposed company in the United Arab Emirates wanting our product and pricing info. After a few emails back and forth he requested a invoice and wire transfer information for our company. After a month or so, emailed us that payment had been issued to our bank. A bogus business check from Custom Service Hardware (also a victIm) was deposited at a branch of our bank (brach location unknown and not wire transferred) The check was for $49,528. when is was supposed to be for $4,050. I put a security hold on my bank account. Contacted Custom Service Hardware and was told that this was just one of many bogus checks this person had tried to issue appearing to be from Custom Service Hardware.
                        Be careful when distributing your bank information to parties which you are not familiar with. All they need is your basic company info, routing and acct number to make problems for you.

                          Like to pay with credit card and then arraign his own shipping so as soon as he picks up the order he can stop payment.
                          That is a credit card violation so please do not let your customers do this.

                              new level of scamming

                              Scam artist:

                              pacific_ocean86@hotmail.com

                              Scam artist is using a PO box.
                              Some how he is getting his credit card bill to and ship to to be the same and letting the credit card processing go through.
                              This is a new level of scamming not seen here before.
                              Using a credit card with code (S) address not supported. This means that since the address is not wrong it still goes through.
                              Currently attempting to purchase car wash equipment and parts.
                              Code 's' cards are credit cards you buy at the store. These are orders where the customer failed to register their address with the credit card bank.

                                They took the time to negotiate a realistic type order and after a month or so advised that their client was wire transferring the funds to our account.
                                A deposit did indeed appear in the account but it was a direct check deposit from a bank in Canada , to our account at Chase.
                                The amount of the check exceeded the value of the order. They said they would let us know later how to handle the over payment.
                                Our bank confirmed the check was fake.

                                I could go on with the story but many of you are already familiar with the scam . I just wanted to share the name in case it will help someone else.
