    LOL he is trying it with me as well. Sounds Jamaican. Calling himself Bill Ashley. Gave me a card number with no CVV (three dig security code) I said I can process it without the numbers, he said he will call me back the another card. So here is the scam. The payment will go through. He will ask you immediately to pay the shipping company for him as they don't except credit cards. Once you pay the shipping business (which is him) he will cancel the credit card payment and you just lost the money you gave to the shipping company and you lost your sale as well. I have spoken to the bank to see if I could flip the scam on him and unfortunately the banking guidelines gives him all the power and us business owners absolutely none in this case. Anyone can cancel a credit card payment.

    I'm playing along with John Parker at the moment. Still married to Rev Susan Parker in Fiji.
    He phoned me (private number) with credit card details but wouldn't give me the CVV code. He's gone off to get another card and will call me back!

    He had sent me an email asking me to call him on (02) 4022 9412 to pay for the goods and freight.

    Sorry, I have no real information to help find him other than his Gmail address. The shipping company he used for me is
    Cecil McJones,
    The Freight & Logistics Manager (Int. Shipping Depart.)
    Transportation Services Int
    TSI.LOGISTICS @ OUTLOOK.COM
    Web: www.tsilogistics.com

    So same operation is still going on, same language as you have all described.

    Ordered $11,000 worth of products then asked to be refunded. We were in the process of refunding but he gave us another completely different card number then we cancelled the refund and alerted the bank. The original owner of one of the cards he tried to use called us and alerted it was a fraudulent purchase.
    He payed the amount of $11,000 on two separate cards. and went under the name of DAVID ATKINS. doesn't return emails or answer the phone unless he calls you, or contacts you

    We had the same today. Also shipment to Norway and using a fake credit card, and his own shipping company.

    same phone number (02) 4022 9412

    email Paul McClymont77 @ gmail.com

    Incredibly pushy.

    Hope someone catches him.

    I too have received emails from a Michael Rosenberg wanting to purchase timber blinds from me for a children's orphanage. This is a legitimate home, it was a legitimate freight company but not the right email addresses . His own address was a legitimate Sydney address and his name that was used is of a prominent person in West Africa who supplies computers to schools over there and has done a lot for charities. Very convincing on the surface. But I was not convinced as I know that they could have got the product delivered far cheaper from the UK due ti high freight costs this side. Seller beware!! I did not go through with the sale...

    I had a Joe Parkinson ( Asian accent, poor line) email me in similar scenario to those above. I played along assuming it was a scam. He wanted me to phone him back on (02) 4022 9412 . Before i did i googled the number and found this page. I took a screen shot and emailed it back to him. He phoned back the next day wondering why i hadn't called him back . I asked to check his email whilst he was on the phone. He must live in a bad phone service area as we lost contact.Funny that. I did send him a parting another email. I don't think ill hear from him again.

    David Atkin contacted me asking for 2 of our large price items. After saying he was in Australia and at an address in an industrial area of Canberra, preceded to say that the stock needed to be sent to Romania with an email address to organize quote for freight. Here I am, thankful for the other comments here as he will not waste my time further. Note to all business people, stick to the overseas freight companies that you know!

    We just had him contact us and another company using 2 different email addresses and now going under the name of Mr David Atkin and ordering a strange amount of a particular product, I always clarify orders with asking for a phone number first especially with this kind of amount.. he gave me this (02) 4022 9412 which I rang and no answer and then I googled it as I always do to find this thread.. thank you to all the others making comment so we don't end up making a mistake and wasting any time.

    In regards to this phone number, we had an email (gmail) from a guy called Jeffery Lands with company name and full address but no phone number. As he wanted to order some of our goods but wanted price, I decided that I should give him a call to discuss quantities.I googled the company name to find the phone number, however there was no such company or anything even like it. Using Google Maps I then searched his address in West Heidleberg Victoria which was a different company entirely but legitimate with a good website. Strangely enough the address was right beside a company selling exactly what he was asking for. We are based thousands of miles away, so go figure…. I then sent an email requesting his phone number to which he replied “Ph :(02) 4022 9412 .Am at a conference ,so my line is off at the moment but can send emails if you need any other details. Thanks Jeff”

    He looks like he is continually changing his name. I had a Kendrick Gunner with orders to be sent to Norway using his shipping company. I was suspicious from the start due to the large order with no direct answers to questions I had seeking clarification. I do not accept credit cards to my business and informed him of this and when he contacted me by phone he asked to make payment to which I politely indicated I cannot do. He hung up immediately and not had any correspondence since.

    He is now going under the name matthew and asked us to use the shipping company of his choice.He wanted us to pay the shippping but we have refused. We became suspicious as he wants empty boxes sent ot Oslo.
    He keeps giving me the number (02) 4022 9412 and seems very very keen to get off the telephone when he calls us and then wants us to call him back.
    His name is mathew in his emails but comes up as Matthew on his email - who's going to spell their own name wrong?
    He insists that you process the card while waits which we refused to do and it made us very suspicious.
    Email address Matthew..williams@gmail....
    We have reported this to card fraud.

    The scam has reached Darwin. We used to get these a lot from "Reverends" in the Bahamas on business trips sourcing tyres for orphanages in Ghana. The best was I got a scam email wanting to buy tyres, and a scam email wanting to sell tyres at the same time, so referred them to each other, and have heard nothing more till now.
