  1. Hello,
    I have not been scammed but I’m looking at a job opportunity and I want to make sure it isn’t a scam before I give out any personal information.
    I called AARP and they could not verify if this was a legitimate job opportunity or a scam but the lady I spoke with told me I might try scamavenger.com so here I am.
    The name of the company is Hermann Delivery Service LLC and they are in Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852.
    The position would a product checker and this would entail receiving products from American manufacturers and inspecting these products prior to them being shipped overseas.
    If any additional information is required I can furnish that.
    Any information, advise or help you can give me in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you very much.
    Sincerely,
    Tom Olenych

    1. Tom, this sounds very suspicious.

      There is a legitimate transportation company named Hermann Delivery, however, they do not hire “product checkers.”

      Please give us more information about this job. How did you find out about it? Do you have to pay them? Please include a link to their website and offer.

      Once we have this information we can thoroughly vet this offer. Meanwhile, please do not give them any money.

  2. 800beacon.com (aka buckramce.com) advertises a wide variety of products to attract you. The site is well-constructed and appears legitimate, listing an address in High Point, NC and a local phone. It’s a front.

    In March 2020, I ordered two softball bats, and they immediately withdrew my payment (credit card), showing a Chinese company as the one doing the withdrawal. I received an email with a no-name shipping company that displayed shipping status in Chinese. When translated to English, it appeared reasonable. Long story short, the shipping site’s status did not change, except to show a “security issue” and a later shipment date. After 4 months and many contacts with the business through email, their replies continued to ask me for patience. I asked for a refund, and their reply was to send the exact same canned reply about patience.

    I’m not alone. Checking BBB.org, you will see several instances of scams from this website and they receive an F business rating there. Save yourself some money…avoid this site.

  3. Scam Sites

    PILLSREGAWAY.COM – PACATGLOBAL.COM
    These sites are an elaborate scam. After you order, they send a package via some tracking site currier that’s domain was registered 6-months ago(but website says established in 2002). Then that site emails you and says you need to pay an import quarantine fee to the sender, of course, and he will handle it by going by the shipping company(pacatglobal.com) and filing a quarantine permit with a fee. Then they create more import license fees(when I sent them an import license) they ignore it and again tell you to send another $700 total in fees to a guy supposedly in another country (sender pillsregaway.com via pillsregaway@yahoo.com) and he can handle it on his end. Then the sender(pillsregaway@yahoo.com) says he can handle it if he is just sent the fees. Why would the sender handle a license (I already have) to release the package out of customs, who now supposedly has it(stated on the tracking at the pseudo shipping company pacatglobal.com, very cogent). The sender alludes to police getting involved and customs agents and the item is illegal. Illegal? I have all the licenses and prescriptions needed for items. Pacatglobal.com is the shipping company they used. Supposedly around since 2002 but if you look up the domain it was registered January 2020. The tracking is fake but that’s their ploy to lure you in for more money. Pillsregaway.com and pillsregaway@yahoo.com are all in the scam. They send you legit tracking numbers for DHL or some other real company that check out delivered from the Ukraine but after you pay them they say they had to use Pacatglobal.com because of some bogus safety reason. The tracking number they provide works at the site so it seems legit, but then when it gets to the USA 3-4 days later you get an email from the shipping company(pacatglobal.com) that the guy labeled the item as some rare plant or vegetation, something customs are interested in and not something benign like a sample of plastic or paper or anything but some plant/herb that would not dictate a permit. It’s compelling, you think it’s legit but the shipping company tells you to pay the sender, it’s faster, he has to go to the shipping company and pay for a quarantine permit that he forgot to do. He emails me that it was an overlooked and unseen event. But don’t quarantines mean to separate from? How could a permit mean to immediately release the item to you? But I fell for it like a fool trying to save money and help his cancer victim wife. After all we have prescriptions and permit for import. But then more fees come doubling spent so far, when the shipping company said the first fee for the quarantine was all that was needed at first and it would be immediately delivered. Another indicator is his email from Yahoo! Why would a company use a Yahoo! Email when domains have email, and the guy is a rep from the company, plus another lure is no prescription or permit to buy from them it’s a pharmacy or research chemical type website. Things listed you need a prescription or permit to buy, which we have, but he said it’s not needed. I figured a small 3rd world country you assume that no script is actually needed like Mexico. He would probably want the safety of a more secure email that promotes anonymity or sans tracking. But again you think about your wife that has pain from several ailments that make her life so miserable and debilitating, the savings, the brief temporary mask to her suffering to squeeze out tiny smile. But hindsight is 20/20. I just want all of you to know about these scam sites and email they use. Very elaborate, planned out, calculated, and tempting this place is, especially the fake shipping site that you will never here of but it’s a 3rd worldish country that you think they have their reasons to use, lax record keeping, cheap, or/and corruptible. Here they are again: Pacatglobal.com, pillsregaway.com, pillsregaway@yahoo.com, info@pacatglobal.com, shipping company used the domain at least to create the fake email from the cogent fake company. I really broke every rule in my common sense, logic, and insight book on this one! Don’t do the same.

    1. Hi, Vick,

      Thanks for reporting PILLSREGAWAY.COM/PACATGLOBAL.COM we’ll add it our scam site list.

      Gary

  4. Linked from FB… discounthotsale.shop/shop/sandals-c-8_10/?sort=20a&page=5
    Really good looking site offering Keen shoes and sandals at cheap prices. Even has Keen logo and copyright 2020. A quick search turned up several similar sites. I suspect scam?

    1. Definitely a scam site. It’s only 9 days old and parts of it appear to be written by a non-English speaker.
      The product images are taken from other websites. If you give these people your money you won’t get the product you ordered and you won’t get your money back either.

    2. I just ordered from them…..ugh, no email confirmation… I thank god it was for only 54$ my bank is watching for this

  5. Saw a sewing machine on line, I know not the website, The place is reliable kind singapore sg trace #15178000000 for $79.99. May 30 2020. I have no phone number for them. The bank called and asked about the charge and I oked it not knowing this turned out to be a scam.
    Is there any recourse?

    1. Hi, Larry!

      Thanks for telling us about cot.avawx.store. We’re in the process of writing an article about their scam.

      Gary

    2. I had the same experience with cot.avawx.store. They sent me the wrong (fake) Costa sunglasses. They admitted that they were the wrong ones and asked me to keep them and try to resell them. When I asked for a full refund they stopped emailing me.

  6. teasemyfling.com promotes that it is a dating site but it’s full of enticing nude photos and profiles of women supposedly looking for sex. To respond to messages costs an absurd $24.50 CDN for ten messages. In just over a week I received almost six hundred messages and what they refer to as “flirts”. I fell for it once only because some of the messages were from women who lived in my city and wanted to meet me. Not true.

    I believe that this site pays women some sort of commission when users sign up so that they can respond to messages. I did an image search on several of the women but not one of them showed up. Nothing but a scam.

  7. Hi, Gary,

    I’ve been looking for a pair of Adidas shoes with the cookies and cream colour-way, spending hours browsing sites to find a reasonable price (retail is about $180).
    Then, Google recommended a site called: lamejor.fun/

    They supposedly offer Adidas “ultraboost” shoes at fair prices ranging from $99-$169, which seem alright in comparison to other sites that sell footwear.

    I’m about 90% sure it’s a scam due to the homepage having YouTube thumbnail images (from videos I’ve seen), but the 10% is hoping that it’s legitimate because i’ve been proven wrong before. That’s why i’ve held off on purchasing anything from here until I know if it’s real. I was hoping you could find something that I didn’t.

    Thank you

    1. Hi, Quetin!

      Lamejor.fun is probably a scam website. There are several red flags.

      First, it’s only 11 days old. Scam sites are typically new, because they make a grab for cash,
      then shut down before authorities can get involved. Later, they open with a new website and run the scam again.

      Second, the business does not have a physical address. This too is typical of scam sites.

      Third, the website URL is not related to the products they claim to sell.

      Fourth, the product images are taken from other websites.

      Fifth, the about page doesn’t say anything about the business but makes excuses that you
      refund make take more than 2 weeks. (In other words, you won’t get a refund).

      In short, it’s a highly suspicious website. I believe if you give them
      your money, you won’t get the product and you won’t get your money back
      either.

      Thanks for bringing this website to our attention. We’ll add it to our list.

      Gary

  8. Hi Gary, so glad there’s people like you and all the commentators helping each other out and today I’m here to ask you since I literally couldn’t find any information or links from other sites to this INSIDER TRADE website:
    wallstslgyejrmud.onion/index.php
    You can tell already just from a first sight of the page by how its made that something’s just wrong but couldn’t confirm yet..

    1. I’m not able to access that site from the United States. The site might be down.
      However, judging from the video link you sent, it’s a blatant scam.

      Businesses in the US cannot pitch investments without being licensed by the SEC

      These guys don’t have a license and they are not regulated.
      They are not in the US.

      If you try their so-called investments, you’re just giving you
      money to a stranger in a foreign country. You’ll never see
      your cash again.

      Thanks for bringing this site to my attention.

      Gary

  10. Coinpaq.tech is a SCAM.
    They sent me an email which unfortunately I fell for.
    They claim to offer various investment plans to double your crypto in 3 days.
    I invested £1000 worth of BTC on 6 May 2020 and although my investment shows as doubled on the dashboard, I cannot withdraw it.
    They keep offering to re-invest it for me.
    They recently asked me to transfer $200 to verify my withdrawal!!
    I keep messaging on their “24/7” support but they do not reply .
    It is a SCAM.

    1. Hi, S. Boparai!

      Thanks for telling us about Coinpaq.tech. Yes, indeed, it’s a very suspicious website.
      We’re sorry you were scammed, but will add this site to our list of scam sites so
      other people can be fore warned.

  11. Hello,
    I just wanted to drop a list of scam websites. Photo of the CEO and his signature is a clipart. The links on this sites go nowhere or to more scam websites. Links to social media don’t work. Adresses on the sites are non existent or go to the places without buildings. Some of those websites copy a legit company – wheelco. Whois search doesn’t show the real domain owner, it just links to privacyguardian.com. The scammer’s email adress is: fatmakiraz77@gmail.com

  12. Hi Gary could you if legitfxtrade.com and Stella Dominic trader are not scams. I have spent 1600USD and a friend of mine 2000USD but before getting our money back, she asking for a government fee of 3%. We are thinking that could be a scam. What do you think?

  13. Hi Gary Horton

    can you please check if this link legitimate i got an email from a lady on face book advert claiming the have a legitimate online business costing 149 US dollor

    event.onlinecoachinggroup.com/webinar?fname=Mahamoud&email=mfahiye@gmail.com

    1. Hi, Mahamoud!

      That is not a legitimate offer. The website where this comes from is concealing much of
      its information, this is typical of scam websites.

      Gary

  14. Sorry I forgot to post all the details the first time, it was a man called Andrew G Davis, he is on Instagram and he had beautiful photos of himself and his daughters, he immediately asked me to join Hangouts, silly me I did because this as it had never happened to me before and I had never heard of Hangouts. He claimed he was working for the UN and that he needed to get money to his daughters, who were supposedly in a school in the UK and that their credit card had been damaged and needed $3,600 immediately because they were starving. I didn’t send any thank goodness. But he now wants me to buy him 2 Steam gaming cards, which I again didn’t do. How could I be so stupid!!!

    1. Hi, Leanne,

      Don’t beat yourself up. This guys are pros and they know how to pull our heartstrings.
      If you’re a US citizen, you can report your experience to the at the internet crime complaint task force
      https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

      I’m glad you didn’t give the guy any money.

      Gary

  15. I have had a man try to scam me out of $3,600, I didn’t give it to him but now he is asking me to buy him a Steam gaming card., which I won’t do but I’m so upset with myself for falling for this I didn’t think it would ever happen to me. How can I report this, it started so innocently, I thought, through Instagram.

    1. Hi, Leanne!

      I’m sorry you had this experience. This article will tell you who to contact: https://scamavenger.com/what-to-do-when-you-get-scammed-online

  16. Hot mature affairs .com another scam site stealing photos from the internet and using them as their own with fake profiles .

  17. Hey Gary,

    Thanks for your services regarding fraudulent sites. I’m Mr. Shah, and I mistakenly came across a site address of: https://www.depotne.com/

    They are using off site photos and information to sell product from their site which is unfortunately not legit. Once I placed an order with them, I quickly found I was not able to contact them in any way, nor would they reply to any of my emails. The product I purchased they utilized PayPal for the processing. They are very tricky in how they have been able to come across as a complete legitimate site. It has a ton of product and details regarding their shipping, return policy etc. I can’t imagine how much money they must be raking in from so many people!

    Please do what you can to have them reported properly and hopefully investigated!

    Sincerely,

    L, Shah

  18. The company that owns Victoria Hearts has at least 50 other mirror sites. That uses the same women profiles ID numbers on their mirror sites.

  19. This all began when I was searching online in order to locate some n95 masks. In searching for the masks I came across a good deal online for the mask that we were looking for. By clicking the image of the mask that seemed like a good deal it then brought me to the website which was “emgeneral.com”. The product was basically like half off and they were claiming to have a “super sale” with the price being around 24.99 which of course went up in price after about a week to 29.99 for the masks. Upon viewing the website everything appeared to be fine as if it were a legitimate website. Although, the one main thing that stuck out to me was the fact that they always want you to contact them via email. When you would call the number listed on their page it would always go right to a generic voicemail answering service which then would prompt you to email them. My employer and I both emailed em general to the email provided but never heard back from them. We ended up paying for the masks ($361.12) which long story short ended up getting double ordered because once the first order had gone through they had brought up another screen saying that we had qualified for a bigger discount which we then proceeded to order the rest of the masks that we were looking to buy but in doing so it was actually completing a whole different order so we ended up being charged twice. Upon researching em general they were using false pictures on their website because I had done some google image searches and the “CEO” was actually some common model who’s picture you can find all over the internet along with the other fake employees that they listed on their website. One thing that is definitely strange is that they have already been changing and editing their websites layout to include the popular “n95” masks even giving it it’s own special category to click on along with even a different phone number and email address. The original email address was emgeneralhelp@gmail.com now it’s support@emgeneral.zendesk.com and their numbers are 616-419-8342 and now it’s switched to 1-800-913-8548.

    1. Hi, David!

      Thanks for bringing EMGeneral to my attention. It appears to be a scam site based in China.
      I wrote a full review of it here: https://scamavenger.siterubix.com/emgeneral-com-review

      I’m sorry you and your employer lost money with these guys, but thanks
      for sharing your experience so others can be warned.

      Gary

  20. Wanted to buy what I knew to be a “like the designer” handbag. It’s no longer made and the website myluxurybags.ru is very well developed. I paid through and sent verification of my funds to the instructions per the website. They display a portal of status and other contact info that isn’t real. Looks like they copied another site soup to nuts.

    They were very responsive right up until they received my money, which thankfully wasn’t but a few hundred dollars. They respond when I email them from other email addresses, so still scamming people. I hope you can prohibit these crooks from making more money. I’ve found out a lot since going through this.

    1. Hi, Kimberly!

      Thanks for sharing your experience with myluxurybags.ru.
      I’m sorry you lost money but will post your experience to our list of
      scam sites.
