Monday, March 7, 2011 Fraud Targets eBay Sellers FAKE FRAUD SCAM

Same scammer running:
Posted here: aka Accurate Escrow Inc. is a fake escrow site targeting eBay jewelry scammers.

The victims are being instructed to send valuable items via FEDEX to:
Calle de Campezo Nr 4
The scammer is using this name and email address:
Delia Allsop

The fake escrow company claims to be located at:
Phone: 1-801-409-5705

If you look closely at the page containing the guide:
you'll notice that the scammer neglected to update the page from his previous fraud escrow site:
"We would like to remind the Seller that the expenses of sending and receiving the money will be charged to the consignee. For information on bank's charges please send us a mail to"

Here is some data from a victim:


Unfortunately I have just found your site but thought you would like my details to add to your list!!!
In hindsight, like everyone, I am sure one feels a right idiot to have been taken in but at the time they have everything so tightly covered that it appears okay.

This is my record of events:

1.  Received initial interest from ebay member potterychef1 who has a listing of 416 with excellent references from people, albeit as a buyer or a seller.  As I was unable to send him an email which was, allsoppgreen @ he suggested I send further pictures of the watch to his other e-mail allsoppgree@hotmailcom, which turned out to be as I thought, his mother in Madrid, Spain.  We carried on with interesting e-mails back and forth until she made an offer of £6,000 plus escrow service and shipping.  She suggested the service of which always came up with Accurate Escrow Inc.  I registered and was given a transaction no., whereby she paid the money into them and it was showing with "waiting confirmation from buyer".

2.  Being slightly apprehensive I checked their license and everything seemed above board.  I therefore shipped the watch out to:  Delia Allsopp, Calle de Campezo Nr.4, Madrid, Spain, 28022 by FedEx at my cost.  At first FedEx said it was undeliverable as the address was wrong but they mistook the 4 for an H.  They then delivered it again but it was signed for by a SVicente at Campezo Nr. 3.  When we went mad about getting it signed for by the wrong person and at the wrong address they have since come back and said that it was a hotel and that the receptionist had signed for it.

3.  At the moment we are claiming from FedEx for misdelivery as I also had paid extra for insurance.

I have written this in the hope that it may help someone else. Although I see by your list that there are many of us that have fallen for this type of scam.

In the scheme of things - we are not in Japan where the loss is far greater.

Here are previous sites using the same template:

Here are some images of the scam site:

Here is text from the scam site:

You have made a deal with someone who lives thousands of miles away. If you are the Buyer, you can't be sure that you will receive the item you have agreed to purchase and the Seller can't be sure he or she won't receive a bad cheque. We make sure that the cheque has cleared before instructing the Seller to ship the item. Both Buyer and Seller are protected.
