    goods stolen from narked at 90

    Over the last few months we have been targeted by fraudulent orders from a syndicate.
    The banking system cleared lots of the payments and the goods had been shipped to find out 2 months later the banks say it was stolen cards used,
    so they took the money back off us and we have lost the computers.

    we have been in contact with a number of anti fraud organizations that are treating this very seriously because they believe the money is going to fund a more serious activity.
    not all the items have serial numbers and we have not identified all the items stolen yet but this is a list of computer that we know for sure are stolen, if you
    have purchased one or have seen them you need contact my self and the police, because they are stolen

    Computers and Serial Numbers

    • PETREL Serial number: 38045940
    • PETREL Serial number: 32045cb3
    • PETREL Serial number: 3806710c
    • PETREL Serial number: 31045dbe
    • PETREL EXT Serial number: 38045cef

    • MB-sub VB50 umbilical touch
    • x3 lifeline radio beacons

    as a small company this is crippling us to lose the money the goods and then the banks to give us a fine for there incompetence, we are fighting them at this point and will be taking this up with the banking watchdog.

    That's retarded! I'm so sorry to hear this. How could the bank take the money back from you? If they messed up by allocating the funds that seems like their loss, no?

    I hope you find resolution on this.

    HAMMERHEAD!

    Re: goods stolen from narked at 90

    Sorry to hear it, John...

    I remember a few years back, I got a call from a guy who wanted to buy 5 Hammerheads for Inspo - quite a nice order, in fact...

    As we were preparing to bill and ship, he called and asked me if I could also buy here in the States some "Tri-Mode" Cell Phones to include in the order... That got me suspicious, since why would you ask a diving equipment company to supply you with phones?

    I Googled his name "Kelvin Smith" and found out that that name is widely used by scam artists who trick legitimate businesses like ours into sending them what they really want (the phones) along with our own merchandise, which probably goes into the bin... The bank just takes the money back (per their 5,000 page "agreement" you sign when you start accepting credit cards), and you are hosed.

    I never processed the order, and never heard from him again...

    This is one of the things small companies face in the modern era...

    Hope you get on with the bank - my instincts tell me they'll call up some arcane fine-print and tell you to take a toss, unfortunately...



    Kevin.

    John,
    Sorry to hear you are being targeted. These rings have no conscience and leave you feeling helpless.

    I used to consult online companies (everything from airlines to gambling sites) on how to detect fraudulent orders and tighten up their processes so know exactly the pain you are going through.

    Feel free to PM me if you think I can add any value to the advice you are already seeking.

    Regards,

    Tim

    Damn heathens... Im pretty sure posting here will get you better results than just police action, as I for one, am seriously disturbed by this and will be searching...
    I hope you at least get your gear back!

    Also, I love your speedy turnover for shipping, but its similiar to airline security after 911, we must deal with increased security (resulting in inconvienaces) to prevent further incidence, so if you must take a bit longer on orders to verify all is legit, so be it...

    Good luck mates

    Re: goods stolen from narked at 90

    Wow so sorry hear about this......I will keep an eye out for any computers on Ebay , Craigslist and Kijiji here Canada.... If anything comes up I will surly let you know. I totally understand how fraud effects us, I suffered through identity theft. Took me years to get out from and drains you financially and emotionally.

    Keep up the great work, your business important to us!

    Rob....
