Hello to all,
I recently purchase a Mac pro 12 core 2010 model ($1000) in Gumtree (Australia). I emailed the seller under the email add email@example.com
. The seller reply back with her own personal email which is firstname.lastname@example.org
. I found out she is currently in UK taking care of her sick father.
So we made a deal that I will pay the item through this shipping company called GreenShippingCo.
The rule is to wire money first through Western Union and it will be sent to one of the "green agent" of the shipping company. The interesting part of this is that the seller mentioned to me that she is ok with refund in case the item is not legit.
But one thing bothers me is the shipping company website which is http://green-shipping.zxq.net
The problem with this website is there's no address, contact no. and only email plus fax no. I tried searching through google under the zxq.net and found out its a free web hosting site. That is why I need your help guys.
I would like to know if the person I am dealing is legit and the shipping co. is not fake.
Here's the copy of the invoice.
We are glad to announce you that you have a package in custody at Green Co Deliveries.
