I placed a product requisition on India Mart looking for cosmetic dermal fillers. James Rajesh ([email protected]) emailed me with a price list and connected me with the German Division where the product was stocked. Everything checked out and looked legit, there were no complaints or scam reports towards them online. They asked is to pay in Bitcoin (which most overseas companies do because it saves high bank ACH transfer fees). I told them I only wanted to placed a small test order first which they agreed to (most scammers will try to get you to place a bigger order, so this also made me feel confident that they were legit. I got a tracking number from a shipping company called Alliance Logistic System (https://alliancelogisticsystem...) and I knew then I had a problem. Of course, my delivery date came and went and now they're just giving me the runaround.
FAKE SHIPPING COMPANY part of an Internet SCAM Company called Vineyard Pharma Trading (https://vineyardpharmatrading....).
