Wednesday, January 12, 2011 FRAUD  FAKE FRAUD SCAM a fake shipping and escrow company run by Romanian scammers, registered in Russia and hosted on a server in Russia.
The fake site is targeting car buyers in Australia.
We all know that there is nothing in real life as a shipping and escrow site.

These scammers created a domain named, which forwards to the legitimate site, to trick buyers into thinking they are dealing with a legitimate person in the Royal Australian Air Force.
The scammers are then instructing their intended victims to send payments via Western Union.

This site is being run by the same scammers involved in the previous clone site:

Here is what the scammer is sending to his intended victims:

I've spoke to my superiors and I can take 4 days permission to bring the car but I don't want to take this permission and maybe come for nothing, I mean that there is a risk of coming to you simply don't show up and I don't want to be embarrassed because there will not be a second chance for me to take a second permission. Carsales website recommends using escrow companies for distant transaction and I believe can do a very good job. I've read their terms which is suitable for both of us but first you must register at their website and then provide your user name so I can start the transaction. You can read how escrow works here: .
I can give you one day to test the car at any inspection service you wish and only if you decide to keep it, they will release the money to me so, this is the safest way. I'm going to drive the car myself so...there will be no shipper or shipping company and the reason of using an escrow company is because I don't want to drive all the way just like that, I must be sure I'm coming for something because as you probably know is a very big distance . Let me know your decision because there is another person who wants to buy it and I need to know which way to go.

I'll bring the car with the log book and we can sign the papers right away
