Default Scammer on the Loose

A fellow calling himself Cedric Graham with a company: Majid Inc. 95 Baga toiruu 49Sukhbaatar,DuuregUlaanbaatar,Mongolia e-mail: [email address] his MagicJack phone number is 239-349-4981 contacted me wanting this lovely 6-8 Gauntlet S type. He had his freight worked out through Universal Freight Cargo, Headquarters (Ghana) Lobby #12 3rd Freight Towers, Tema - Ghana, 00233 e- mail:universalfreightcargo@outlook.com

Mr Graham wanted this machine with freight included (per Universal Freight Cargo's quote (bogus $3,500 and change for airfreight to Mongolia). All to be paid for by credit card. His associate called me with a MasterCard (the associate's international phone number is 233247770000864). The associate, calling himself Tom Mitchell of Lucedale Mississippi, tried unsuccessfully three time to process the purchase on a MasterCard, all were declined. After Googling Mr. Mitchell we find out he a Reverend with no interest in buying a used Gauntlet S machine.

I contacted the good Reverend and let him know that he nearly was in the T-shirt printing biz.

Just a little story for reference in your machine buying/selling transactions.

Oh PS: the machine is still for sale

thanks for posting, for me the Mongolia/Ghana thing would have stopped me instantly from any further communication with these people. I realize we live in an ever decreasing World Wide environment but personally am still too naive to deal anywhere outside North America. So erring to the side of caution.

I have sent machines to 6 continents and in general had good results, you just never know where the rats are anymore. We were skeptical of the country, but I guess they print t-shirts everywhere.
