Beware of Shelia Williams or Anita Odole (Nigerian Scam, Paypal Scam)

Last week I received an email from this person who used the name "Shelia Williams" with an email, shecok10@gmail.com. I didn't know this person and I just receive an email from her that she wanted to buy my "item for sale" (I will use the phrase "item for sale" here for privacy). I've posted this "item for sale" in a classified ads website.

Nigerian Scam, Paypal Email Scam - BEWARE!

Here's the message of her emails. I omitted some unimportant lines here:
"Hi am interested in purchasing your item,hope still available?"....

"busy woman,i work with McDonald in New York,and am buying it for my
son who study Marine Engineer in abroad,i want the item shipped to him
via Philippines Post or Dhl Courier Service and i will offer $250USD
for the cost of the shipment,as i prepare for the payment do you
prefer the payment via Bank Transfer or PayPal only let me know your
decision to know the next plan
"....

"Here is the Shipping address:

NAME: Kayode Odole

ADDRESS: Nw6/324 Akintola Rd Ekotedo
CITY: IBADAN
STATE: OYO
COUNTRY: NIGERIA
ZIP CODE: 23402
Phone: +2348023753377

"as i prepare for your payment,i will proceed the payment and once the

payment is made will inform you
"....


I responded her that the "item for sale" is still available. Then the conversation continued. After few talks (thru email), we agreed that she will pay me thru Paypal. But before we agreed, I know that this was a scam because I already searched the net regarding the name Shelia Williams, Paypal scam, Nigerian Scam. This is really a scam.

Notice the email address, PayfundPal@europe.com. This email is really fake. It's not a real email from Paypal. That's a very funny email address. If you search PayfundPal@europe.com in google, you will found no results. It means this email address is newly made by the scammer. I bet if you search the email PayfundPal@europe.com in google, you will surely land on this page. Scammers usually creates new fake paypal emails for their victims. To differentiate the real Paypal email from a fake one, here are some of the real Paypal email addresses:

Real or Genuine Paypal Email Addresses:
<paypal@info.paypal.com>
<paypal@email.paypal.com>
<service@intl.paypal.com>
<reply4@info.paypal.com>
<spoof@paypal.com>
These real paypal email addresses are the ones I receive in my email when I transact with Paypal. You can read Paypal security tips here.

Take note:
  • An email from PayPal will: Address you by your first and last names or your business name

  • An email from PayPal won't: Ask you for sensitive information like your password, bank account, or credit card

So let's continue. I will show below the message (the fake Paypal Notification Email) sent to me by the scammer which is a fake Paypal Notification Email:

OML, I'm trying to sell my condo and was conversing back and forth with this guy jasonbravo1@gmail.com who apparently offshore and promises to make payments in increments of $10,000. everyday for 7 days. Thank God I checked here first.
THANK YOU!

ak   (17 December 2013 2:57 PM) [Entry]

Unfortunately this is still going on, with EXACTLY the same address as put below. So has been going on for years and nothing being done about it.

We were lucky in that we ALMOST sent the product and the Courier Company said we should check their address out on the Scammer page. Which he did, and the address in Malaysia came up as a Scam. So we were lucky - but others will not be.

IF YOU WANT something done or at least to make a complaint - do send a letter - I am sending one to PAY PAL and EBAY..

Esther Johansson   (09 November 2013 1:34 AM) [Entry]

Hey Esther,

I'm very sorry for the late response, i have successfully completed the payment i sent $670 which i included an extra $150 for the shipment fee and am sure they would have notified you since i made the payment so kindly check your PayPal Email Address on (antti_johansson@yahoo.com) Either INBOX OR SPAM FOLDER to received the payment confirmation from them and read it carefully for better understanding on how to complete the transaction. And kindly proceed with the shipment ASAP via either EMS Singpost or DHL and get back to PayPal with the shipping tracking number so they can complete the transfer without any further delay.

Here is the Shipping Name/Address:

Note: Please Wrap the item properly before going to the post office and When shipping, please declare the item as a "Gift Box" and do not declare the cost of the item for the safety of customs duty. i would be expecting to read from you ASAP!

Thank you.

Talia Chow   (31 October 2013 8:23 PM) [Entry]

I was almost scammed too by this guy called Jason Bravo. jasonbravo1@gmail.com. Below is a abstract Email sent to me after His supposedly paypal transaction. I told him i will get paypal to verify and he said i was the scammer. Oh my gosh. what a scammer.

Hi Chow,

Am very sorry for been so late to get back to you have been out of signal just got back to email you...So i'll like to inform you that have already made the full payment including the shipment fee and am sure PayPal would have notified you by now as they said to me, i sent $280 which i also responsible for an extra at my end to cover the whole transaction charges in order for you to receive the full payment without any charges i sent all to your PayPal (chowyijie@hotmail.com) i added $80 meant for shipment/delivery fee also, they said they have notified you to this effect.

Like i said, am sure PayPal would have notified you with the transaction procedure since i made the payment because they have already deducted the full payment from my account. So kindly check your Email Address either INBOX OR JUNK MAIL FOLDER to receive the payment confirmation and read it carefully for better understanding on how to complete the transaction.

So i would like you to get the item wrap properly as present gift now and get it shipped immediately also here's the receiver's name/address you needed to get it sent to via either Singapore Post or DHL Courier.

Tim   (12 October 2013 10:59 AM) [Entry]

I received an email from Du-Marie Maverine regarding an add I had placed up on GumTree (selling engine here in Australia) and she offered me a good price and offereted to pay for highest level shipping as she "needed it to get there in time for her brothers birthday". Like you guys I had to send it ti Mikel Desmond at the address specified in your own messages.

Foolishly, I did it through paypal, received emails from them, shipped the product, sent through tracking information, only to find out that it was a SCAM when I rang PayPal to complain about why I hadn't received my money, and why I was being asked to do a Western Union Money transfer of $850 AUD due to paypal supposedly overdrawing her account by that amount.

I am now attempting to resolve this with my international postage agent and local and national police. I have also sent through all relevant material to PayPal's phishing team so that they can work on it from their side.

After all this, I am down $1650 that was the agreed price for the laptop that I shipped, plus the $200 for express shipping. And I have a massive headache and doesn't look like I'll be getting anything back.

So wish I had found this site before now :(

Cheers,
Tim

Sam   (25 September 2013 7:45 AM) [Entry]

I'm so glad I found this.

I had a hit from a "Peter Adams" with similar stories as below.
He also provided the address for "Mikel Desmond B-12-12 vista millennium condo. Puchong Perdana, Selangor 47100 Malaysia +60146617083."

Luckily, all this stuff seemed really random and I had to do a quick search.
Thanks.

Thank you for this site and search engines!

I have almost been scammed by Thompson Brad (thompson574, thompsonbrad574@yahoo.com).

Tried to purchase some goods from me (my price was 150 EUR, he said he will pay 300 EUR for shipped to Malaysia). Our conversation is as follows:

First contact:
"do you still have this item available for sale?how much is your last best price and what is the present condition of the item? get back to me soon

Thanks."

i have replied a short mail, to which he replied:

"

Then i've checked on this guy as i always do -- and i recommend it is a practice for you, too -- and i've found this site.

Thank you again!

Hi! Probably someone as you, are trying to investigate about scammers, true? Well, I had a particoular piece of news for you:

About that scammer, Shelia Williams shecok10@gmail.com - That's her pseudonym, and we can find that scammer on social network... Maybe! ^^

So, lesson number one: scammer are human people, who can have some fun and social activity on social network, right? 

1) Copy-paste this link in Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/login/identify?ctx=recover

2) You can try to make a search digiting

*the email of the scammer or the phone number*

So, try to digit the phone number you got, and finally you can find the profile of the scammer (sometimes, if the scammer is clever, he can be able to hide every information and you could not try to search him\her on Facebook! But making this, and giving dates on Police, you can help them to fight criminals like them)!

Shelia, uh? The true name is Chichi Bose! And more probably a true nigerian scammer (or maybe not! But the meter of judgement in the case can be leaved to your investigating abilities)!

If you are interested about finding scammers, search me in email

golturion84@gmail.com ! Stay tuned!!!

Hi. If anyone want the proforma letters I have, please email me at aimau@iinet.net.au I will email them back to you via your return email address. It is more convenient for me, and quicker for you.

Remember, the more pressure we can keep on the people, Malay Police, 60 Minutes [and other currant affairs programs], Australian Consumer and Competition Commission {who deal with scams] Pay Pal, DHL, Pack and Send and any other organisations you have encountered, who have some part in facilitating services in the process of these scams, the more chance we have of getting some action. I am starting to go Pat Pal, DHL and Pand Sent for my money. Enough people pushing for this the greater the chances of getting the media to take the matter seriously, which, if enough people push hard enough, we could look at a 'Class Action'. It worked against AMZ Bank.

thanx for the heads up. ive been dealing with "rose adkins" wanting to buy my ring. wanting me to post it by hiding it in a teddy bear or something and send it to B-18-11 Vista Millenium Condo, Puchong, Selangor, 47100, Malaysia. addressed to Mikel Desmond. ive recieved fake emails from paypal telling me to send the item, all is safe and money will be released to me once i give them a tracking number. i was obviously suspicious on a few things typed in the names and found this site. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Mazza   (31 October 2011 12:41 PM) [Entry]

I'm currently playing with a Mrs Rose Adkins. The script hasn't changed much has it? The address details for mailing are (note the slight variation in apartment number?):

Name: Mikel Desmond
Address: B-18-11 vista millennium condo
City : Puchong
State : Selangor
Zip code : 47100
Country: Malaysia
Phone: +60142313965

The "Paypal" verifications have been coming from "servicefundpaypaI@consultant.com " masked as "service@paypal.com.au". Again they discuss an escrow process but I've never used that here even for large sums.

I love how the confirmation tells me I have been "mandated to ship the package within 12-24 Hours and supply the Shipment Reference (Tracking Number/Bar Code, as appears on the shipment receipt). Your account is being monitored and the funds will be accessible in your account when the reference(s) are received."

Still, I'm playing this lil fishy for the entertainment he/she/it/they are giving and ultimately intend sending something a la the Powerbook saga whereby the duty must be paid before the baddies get the goodies.

Началось с того, что человек захотел купить гитару. Переписка была обычной. Он запросил банковские реквизиты. Потом пришло 2 письма якобы от Лондонского банка красиво оформленных о произведенном переводе материальных средств. Я даже пошутила - что я и сама могу наверстать в html такие шедевры дизайна.
С переводом с английского помогла подруга.
Смутило сразу - что Лондонский банк требовал сначала "стулья-потом деньги" - то есть сначала отправить гитару и дать им номер отслеживания, а после чего обещалось положить на мой счет оплату и зачем-то просили мой телефон.

Я начала проверку состава письма.
Сначала проверила на внешнее содержание.
1. Адресат-заказчик Celia Coasters оказался проживающим в Лондонской клинике-больнице South Westminster Osteopathic Clinic St. George's House, согласно указанному им якобы домашнему адресу:
82 Vincent Square
London
SW1P 2PF
2. При наведении на ссылки в письме мышки - в статусной строке отображалось совершенно иное направление - куда бы я попала - нажав на предлагаемый там e-mail для связи.

Вскрыла заголовки письма
1. IP адрес вел в Калифорнию 74.125.82.179
2. шла подстановка настоящего адреса отправки (Sender: fakeinbox11@gmail.com) на адрес в видимой области "От кого" (From: transfer-bankofengland@accountant.com)
Subject: Notification of an Instant Payment Received from Celia Coasters (icemam3@att.net)
3. IP адрес в первоначальной переписке до банковского письма у него тоже Калифорния - 209.85.160.179 , но e-mail уже - icemam3@gmail.com

Проверка кода html полностью повеселила
1. Картинки в письмо вставлены с украинского сайта шапки Лондонского банка
http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/images/header-monetarypolicy.jpg
и также с сайтов apple.com и paypal.com прямыми ссылками
2. прописана подмена адреса ссылок - с обещанной transfer-bankofengland@accountant.com на ту, куда бы ты попал - contact_bankofengland@consultant.com, если учитывать - что адрес реального Лондонского банка вообще enquiries@bankofengland.co.uk

Ну и последнее - в инете оказалось уже несколько потерпевших от мошенника, кто успел ему отправить товар, так и не получив денег. Например:
http://aristonix.wordpress.com/2010/12/08/i-was-supposed-to-be-scammed/

... И весьма улыбнуло - как наш "лондонско-малазийский друг" решил купить ноутбук Aser Aspire у Минского продавца.. Видать там в Лондоне с Асерами совсем беда... - он ему пишет:

Кстати - текст первого письма мне по гитаре был именно такой - да-да-да! - "Hi, Do you still have this item for sale? please get back to me asap. Thank you"

Вот еще такое же http://www.vandlaptop.ro/laptop-toshiba-satellite-a200-1zf-cu-rucsac-si-mouse-laser-logitech-mx-620_a13475 .html
celia - Hi Friend, Do you still have this item for sale? please get back to me asap. Thank you icemam3@gmail.com

.. да и много он уже наследил ))) .. где-то намекали на полицию...

hi everyone! thank goodness i found this website.

I was selling my laptop online and this ----'Anna Oarlay'---- sent me an email, wanting to buy it. This is her email:

"I'm a serious buyer and am interested in buying this item so what's
your last desire price for this item and it's present condition? i am
working offshore and very busy atm(am not able to view the item) and i
want it shipped to my cousin who's on a project work in Selangor,
Malaysia and am happy to offer you $200 for the shipment fee via FedEx
or Pack&Send btw payment is ready to go via Paypal only, i hope you
will consider my offer and kindly get back to me asap to know the next
plan,"

Thinking that she is really a real buyer, I checked the postage fee for a few types of services. Then I replied her saying that AustPost is only $70 while DHL costs $250. Then she replied:

"I'm glad to read from you, what's the total cost including the
shipment fee. am happy to get it from you and i only want you to use
Pack and Send for the shipment, well i have just gotten the shipment
address and i hope the amount that i offered will be Ok for the
shipment fee? (please check Pack&Send or DHL to be sure of shipment
fee via express service). let me know the total cost and if you have
paypal account you can send me a PayPal invoice to my email? Here is
the Shipping address:

Name: Mikel Desmond
Address: B-18-11 vista millennium condo
City : Puchong
State : Selangor
Zip code : 47100
Country: Malaysia
Phone: +60142313965

i shall proceed to the payment once everything is settled..."

So I google her address and came to this page! I even searched the Malaysia Yellow Pages and Malaysia Post Office Website to look for the address, there is no record of this address. Then I went to: http://pulse.yahoo.com/y/landing?.done=http%3A%2F%2Fpulse.yahoo.com%2F
to look for the phone number she has given, and the only result that came out was this page!

Her email is : ------"oarlayassuiestore@gmail.com"--------

Please dont fall for this person's scam. I think she is likely to use the same address and phone number.
Whenever you sell something online, never trust the buyer. Always google up their name, address and phone number first. When she was willing to pay any price I offer, it seems a bit fishy. She even preferred a postage service which costs $200 more. Would anyone really pay THAT much more to buy a second hand item? She could have bought a new one with the price that she said she is willing to pay me! So please be aware when you sell something online. Oh, and I didn't sell her my laptop! :) Cheers~

Warning to everyone. If you use Pack and Send, they have a contract with DHL, and if you want to get the delivery stopped, you will most have to go through Pank Send. DHL will not discuss it with you or take any action on your behalf. This may apply to other freight companies, and their sub-contracts, so always ask. Until Pay Pal sort this out, I would ensure payment was made by TT to your bank account. Banks have far superior security for your account, and insurance to cover an unlawful access. Pay Pal simply doesn't care. I have tracked down their USA and AUS address and the letter goes tomorrow. In info as per earlier post would be great.
