I have gotten several email form a man who wishes to order bears from me ..but something about the order doesnt feel right.
His name is Richard Moriss. Dont worry about shpiping his agent will pick it up,,cant use paypal..i google earthed hsi address
and there is such an adress but all i see is a fishing hole there, No actual houses, any advice?
I goggled his name and came up with this interesting page. Looks like it is a scam and he goes by several names.
Easy... Tell them that, if they don't want to pay via PayPal or by legitimate credit card, you will accept cash, check or money order, paid in advance. You will fulfill the order when the payment clears the bank and not until. You will ship via Fed-Ex, UPS, Post Office or via private courier if all shipping charges are paid in advance. The customer is responsible for customs, import duty or other taxes. Again, all paid in advance or paid by customer to the proper authority upon receipt of goods.
Write everything down before agreement is made:
"Upon receipt of 'X' dollars, I will send you the products listed, shipped via 'such-and-such' carrier. Shipping and taxes will cost 'Y' dollars for a total of 'Z'. Work will begin on fulfilling your order when all monies are paid in advance. Product will be shipped to 'your address' upon completion of work. Estimated due date of completion is 'date." All payments are non-refundable once work has begun. Please verify that your order is correct before sending any payment."
(Or something similar. I think you get the point.)
If they don't want to play by your rules, they don't have to play at all.
wow thanks for the links..you have to be suspisious of everyone these days..sheesh!
I did find it funny that one of the addresses he gave was very close to home for me. Longwarry North..I lived at Longwarry for 10 years as a kid..its a tiny town of about 500 people..it does have a street called Princes Way..with about 10 houses on it...as for Longwarry north..um..its pretty much a few farms north of longwarry..lol..im sure the people there would be just "thrilled" to know a scammer was using their name worldwide.
