I printed out several emails I received and the local cops said it appeared they came from the UK. They said without taking all the computers I used to communicate with these people, the printed out emails would be useless. They figure it's a network of people with several people out of the country and a bunch of people all over the United States.
What sucks, these packages were heavy and all were shipped Next Day Air early AM from Road Island and the cheapest cost $245 to ship. UPS told me I could bring any unopened boxes to their distribution center within 5 days of receiving them and they would send them back. I had to call the warehouse that shipped the other package because it was opened and the guy wasn't sympathetic at all. He said they would send me a call tag for the package but the shipping cost to receive it, the shipping cost to send it back and a 10% restocking fee would be taken out of my account. What account? I've never dealt with these people before in my life! I've never ordered anything from them. He went on to say I may not be credited for refused packages because the returns department was a different address than the address it was shipped from.
Let's see, the scammer had me sent a check from Georgia. When I told him the check was a phoney he had someone in Nevada send me a confirmation letter saying they were the one who signed the check and it was guaranteed good. When I told him no deal, I was finished communicating with him, he started having warehouses from several different states send me packages. Well, the first 3 went to the same place, another came today from a different state.
Basically, they said it appeared the guy was doing this because I told him his check was no good and I refused to cash the check and send him his merchandise along with his $4,500 overpayment refund. He keeps saying he won't be ignored and I will follow his instructions or things will get worse. Since I didn't cash any checks and all the merchandise was shipped back to where it came from, the local police say there isn't much that can be done at this point.
I just can't help but wonder how a scammer would get all this stuff sent to me and how I could put a stop to it. Since all he has are my UPS Store address and prepaid cell phone, how could he have made it look like I placed the order? Heck, I have a legit credit card and still have difficulty ordering stuff. I'm really wondering what the do about shipping and restocking.
