Internet Scammers!!!

Hi Guys

I thought I should write a warning about internet scammers. I've been a victim already and paid big time for it.

A few months ago, I signed up for an ebay sellers account. I wanted to sell products using drop shippers. I searched for good drop shippers for a couple of weeks and then found a place called wholesale central (which is good), which has a list of drop shipping companies. Most of the companies on the site are legitimate and so they wanted too much information and money. I then found a couple of sites listed by ebay that offers a similar service as wholesale central. I trusted these companies as they were refared by ebay.

I joined both companies which were listed on the ebay information site. I cant name them because they might sue me. Anyways, I started to search for products I could sell on ebay. I found a lot of them and at affordable prices. I added the owners to my network list and they aproved. I then added some of these products on ebay. Two days after posting the products, I received 7 orders with a total of
$3 469.00. I was extreamely happy. I started communicating with the drop shippers and everything was good.

On day 3 of the orders, I placed the orders with the drop shipping companies through the service provider. I received an email from the dro shipping company , just an hour after placing the order. They asked me to pay via Western Union because their paypal account is suspended. Now, this service provider warns people about using Western Union for payment. When someone asks you to pay via Western Union, It's normally a scam! All the companies listed on that service provider are supposed to be paypal verified. I emailed the service provider about the issue and the reply was cold. I replied to the drop shipper and told them I wont pay via Western Union, period! I started to look for other drop shippers with the same product and there were many of them. I new, I was going to either loose my profit or be scammed. I contacted all the drop shipping companies on the service provider's list and THEY WERE ALL asking me to pay via Western Union!!!!!!!!!!!!! Scamers!!!!!!!

I didn't know what to do. I couldn't sleep for days because I know how strict eBay is. Well, few days later after contacting eBay, my eBay's seller account was suspended. I went crazy. I still had these orders and the money was already paid to me and still no products. I was worried that the buyers will start thinkin I'm a scam too. I contacted the customers and expalined the situation to them. They also started to freek out. I decide to return all the money back to them. I had to pay tranfare fees which were all over $200. I lost money just like that.

Okay,,, here is the thing and this is a warning to you guys... There is a a fake Drop Shipping Company which offers a Frenchise at 70 UK pounds a once off fee. Stay Away from them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not saying their name too but if you search for Drop Shippers this particular company appears on the 1st page. Guys they are scammers!!!! Please listen to me ... I applied because I thought it was a good deal, I mean 70 pounds only and you get a free website with 2000 products. My order was stopped because my credit card was declined due to insuficient funds at the time. I then received an email from them telling me to try again and I can chat to them live via messenger and I can come visit their ware house. HHHHAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!! They even have a picture of the so called ware house. I searched their particualr location using Google Map. The nice thing with google map is you can see the pictures of the the addresses. I searched and the address is a small English house. I emailed them and told them my findings and asked them to give me a propper address So I can visit as they offered. They never replied after I told them I didn't see their Warehouse. These guys are good at defending their company on scammers lists. I will post their address tomorrow... and you can see for yourselves.. I will actually post the name too......

Beware guys....!!!!!!!!!!! Beware There are actually more of these scammers. I will post everyday and add more and with names..... PLEASE CHECK as often as you can. This blog is actually for Internet biz but I decided to start with Internet scammers because they will take your money if you are starting out.

Follow my blog and I will give you some free goodies..... lol
