  • I received this email today. I work at a manufacturing office.
    This helped me not to fall for this fake email!
    Could you elaborate on how this email is a scam and what they are trying to accomplish through it? My boss will want to know why I will not reply to this fake email. Please let everyone know why. Thanks!

    • All the so called “COMPANIES” orders saying to arrange a pickup by “THEIR” shipping company after the payment has been confirmed are fake. They usually use information from a stolen credit card and the merchant who sends the goods gets nothing. Another way is that they will send you extra money (sometimes too much!) to begin with and will ask you to send/wire the balance after deducting all of your expenses. This way they have goods that you may send, the money that you may send as balance and you will be doubling your loss.

      Here are the tips

      1. Read the email language very carefully, you will be able to spot some of the errors that CEO’s never make. This is not a letter by a CEO. It more seems like a thug letter!
      2. Where is the website of MO Store? Contact info? Phone Number? Credibility? Even visibility is not there online.
      3. Try to find Martin Olsen in Cyprus in a search engine? What do you get?
      4. Try to find “M.O.store Inc.” in Google and see what do you get?
      5. If you received the IP address of the email, do some research on it as well.

      I hope this helps! Please send wording of the email you received and comment back what you may find to help others!

        • Hi Lorraine, thanks for sharing. This is how we can help, one by one the innocent people falling for fraud! Thanks again! I will be migrating this topic to my personal website http://subodhsharma.com in the coming months

  • I received a very similar email from the same person. Nice order (if it were really real). He informed me he had a shipping quote, but no one ever asked me for any weights and dimensions. Hmmmm. So many red flags. I let him know that we will have to require payment via bank wire transfer.
