Re: New ways to identify scammers. 7 advices

Thank you for your information. I have placed an order with a company called McPlaza Electronic Co. Ltd at 56 Queen's Road East, Wanchai - Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Phone 852-9642-3421. They accepted payment through paypal but with a name other than McPlaza. I decided to email the address where money was to be sent. It was an individual and he informed me that he had nothing to do with this transaction and had denied my payment. Thank goodness for this honest man! Mr. Blijah Hassan was the name of the person who was supposed to be working for McPlaza. Funny thing about this purchase is they kept pushing for me to send second half of payment via Western Union. I refused. Then they said they enclosed two laptops, which I had not ordered but had inquired about, and they wanted me to send $1300 via ...Western Union. I refused and said I would send the laptops back. Then they said they needed $850 for customs fees. I said then cancel the order because I wasn't sending anything else. They said, oh no you misunderstand. Funny thing is I haven't heard from McPlaza or Mr. Hassan since the 25th of April, 2 days ago.
