Mobile phone scams from Nigeria and Europe (payment by Western Union)

Fake electronics stores and how to detect them
You will find many businesses on the Internet (especially on B2B sites such as Alibaba.com) that offer mobile phones, notebook computers and other electronic products are very low prices. You should be aware that many of them are fraudulent.

These companies are not actual registered businesses. They have no offices, no warehouses, no accounts, just a bunch of guys with cellphones. All names and postal addresses are fake. The whole purpose of the fake companies is to trick people into sending cash or providing credit card details without ever shipping any products to the customers.

The criminals are taking advantage of the fact that there is a serious lack of law enforcement resources targetted at small scale online fraud. If you have lost less than $5,000-10,000 the police would rather not even open a file on your case. Don't expect serious action unless the damage is much higher. This comes as a shock to many victims, but it's the current reality.

Many of the "businesses" listed below are based in Nigeria, but others are based in Europe or elsewhere. These fake stores are primarily run by gangs from Nigeria, Romania and Russia. In some cases the only indication of where the criminals are is the country where the bank account is based, which may be different from the address claimed for the company. Here are some simple rules to follow if you don't want to get burnt:

  1. Never pay for online purchases by Western Union wire transfer (no exceptions)! It doesn't matter where the store claims to be based: Once you send money it can be picked up anywhere in the recipient's country, with no way of tracing the person who picked it up. The criminal remains anonymous. Do not trust any schemes to later change the recipient's name or the question/answer pair. Assume that if the criminal knows your name and the amount you sent he can pick up the money, no questions asked. That's why Western Union has become the leading payment vehicle for online scams. Western Union is fine to wire cash to a stranded family member in a hurry, but do not use it for internet shopping, ever!

  2. Beware if the seller uses a free webmail account (Hotmail, Yahoo, etc) or if the company's main phone number is a mobile phone (Spain: +34-6xx, UK: +44-70xx, +44-87xx, Nigeria: +234 80x) or if it shares the same number for the phone and fax or it doesn't list a postal address.

  3. Beware if a seller doesn't have his own website or uses a free webhosting site (e.h. http://phonestore.8m.com).

  4. Beware if the business has its own site, but the domain was created less than three months ago (use the following link to check their domain registration).

  5. Search for the name of the company on Google. Search for the phone number too, some of the frauds get reincarnated with a new company name but still using the same mobile phone. If the search yields scam warnings or only classified ads by the company and its own website or if you don't find anything at all you should be very careful. Use the form below to search:
    Google

  6. Beware of prices that are too low and/or free shipping and/or worldwide on-site service. Legitimate businesses need to pay suppliers, rent, taxes etc. and still make a profit. They won't underprice the nearest competitor by 30% or 50%, if they can also get the sale by being only 5-10% cheaper. In the real world international shipping is expensive and so is on-site service. You only get what you pay for. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

  7. Never pay by bank wire transfer into a bank account in a name other than the name of the business or in a country other than where the store claims to be based (e.g. UK company, Spanish account or German company, Dutch account). Why would a legitimate business use an account held in the name of an individual or not have an account in the same country?

  8. If you pay by credit card you're generally protected, but if the business is a scam they can abuse your credit card details for making fraudulent purchases elsewhere. PayPal is the safest.

  9. Don't buy mobile phones and other electronic equipment from a supplier in Nigeria unless you actually live there. Nigeria does not manufacture high-tech electronic equipment. All such goods have to be imported first and its ports and airports are notoriously inefficient. There is no reason why anyone there should be able to export mobile phones, computers and other imported high tech, high value articles cheaply. When you receive offers for such equipment at prices that sound too good to be true, assume it to be a scam.

How to fight back
If you have been defrauded, report the email addresses used in the scam to the webmail providers and ask for the accounts to be suspended (see here). This interrupts all scams in progress and forces the criminals to start from scratch using new email accounts, making all their ads on the web obsolete.

If you have had any questionable offers to buy mobile phones, laptop computers or similar items in Nigeria or Europe, please forward copies of emails to 419@419scam.org so we can warn others! Please use one of the following subject lines for your message:

[419] Lagos: mobile
[419] Lagos: fakecompanyname
[419] Lagos: scamemailaddress

When you see such offers, use a disposable yahoo.com address to contact the company and get a quote for any phone or ask for a price list. You can also ask for payment instructions (bank accounts, wire transfer instructions). After you receive a response, click on the arrow on the right hand side of the Forward button in Yahoo! Mail and select "as attachment" to forward the reply to us. Use the above subject lines. When we receive those forwarded mails we can see where the mails are really sent from. It allows us to tie different scams and email addresses to the same originators.

Notes about this email and the company behind it.

  • The email address is a free webmail account. Why would someone from an English speaking country such as Nigeria use a french version of Yahoo? All the menus will be in French, but this guys doesn't sound French...

  • The website is a free site, or was a free website, I should say, because it no longer exists:
    404 Error - File Not Found
    The page or file you are looking for
    (http://www.bbmobilez.bizhosting.com/index.html) is not here.
      Possible Reasons:
    
    You may have spelled the URL incorrectly.
    This site may have been removed due to a violation of the BizHosting
    "Acceptable Use Policy".
    This site may have been moved to a different server.

    When you can buy a domain for a year for $19.95 this does not look like a real business.

  • The main phone is a mobile phone, which is not really unusual for third world countries, where fixed lines have long waiting lists, but it does make them more difficult to trace.

    I googled for that mobile phone number. These guys have been around, sending out spam like this one:
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-charsets/2003OctDec/1655.html

    Notice how their free email addresses have changed since then. I wonder if they got shut down when someone complained. The postal address changed too.

I have not found any references for this company, other than free business directories or business solicitation spam, in other words, no third party that recommends doing business with them.

What I have received is the following report of a fraud:

I write this e-mail to you cause unfortunately I know bb mobilez 
from Nigeria.
3 days ago I read a message post from this "company" that selling 
some cell phones at cheap prices.
I sent an e-mail asking for a pricelist and they contacted me with 
Yahoo messenger with an address  bb_mobilez@yahoo.fr .
So...I asked for 10 cell phones and they told me that thay normally 
sell 20 units block ,but just for my first time could sell me 10 phones.
So the total amount was 1240euros....I paid with Western Union and 
the next day they tell me that they can't ship me the phones and 
I must buy another 10 phones to receive all.
I asked my money back, but they don't want to re send me back.....
So I'm still trying to have my money...but I think it is difficult.
This is my story,I hope you can give me a little help,

Thanks
Firstname
Here was one of the emails:

Firstname,

Your order is ready to be shipped out today. I took your package 
to our company Chairman for the shipment approval, but our chairman 
has totally disagree not to sign the shipment of the package, due 
to the quantity of phones you ordered for is far below our company 
minimum order required. 

My Chairman felt really bad about your order quantity and an 
increament needs to be made as soon as possible, so that the 
shipment of your package can take place today before this week 
runs out. Our Boss (Chairman) just arrived from London-Europe 
early this morning. The solution left is for you to make the 
neccessary order increament today, so that the package can be 
shipped out today before this week runs out. 

I am very sorry for the inconvenient, you have to bear with us. 
I surely guarantee you that your order package will shiped out 
today immediately the order is up to our company standard. 
According to our Chairman your order need to be increased from 
10pcs to a minimum of 20pcs or 22pcs. This is the only options 
left to solve the deal, so you need to make the increament as 
soon as possible, so that we can instruct our junior workers to 
add the new order to the package.

A free nokia 6230 phone will be added to your order as compesation. 
Make the neccessary arrangement of your order now. Your order 
will be shiped out as soon as the total order is packaged. Do 
you want to order for the same model of phones you requested for? 
Or do you want to add other model of phones to the package?

Let us as soon as possible.

Lehman.

Here was our reply to the victim:

Hello Firstname

I'm sorry to hear the warning came too late for you.

Western Union is not safe to use with anyone you only know via the internet.
The reason is that you have no way of tracing where the person who receives
the money actually lives, because he or she will come to an office after you
email the transaction code, picks up the cash and leaves again. All you have
to try and find this guy is a free webmail address, which really is nothing.
That's why Western Union is so popular for payments with online scammers.
Any business deal that involves both a free webmail account and Western
Union is almost certainly a scam.

This guy is trying to find if he can cheat you out of 2480 euro instead of
just 1240 euro. But you have no reason to trust this fake company with
another 1240 euro when they were already dishonest on the first 1240 euro.

I doubt there are *any* legitimate companies exporting mobile phones from
Nigeria to Europe or North America. Nigeria doesn't make them and shipping
would be expensive. Mobile phones are built in Europe, North America, Japan,
China and Latin America - just about anywhere on this planet but Africa!

You don't know where this "company" is based. Any postal address they have
given could be totally fake, because it's not required for a Western Union
transfer and they already changed their address once. The guy's name is
probably fake.

You could report this to the police in victimscountry, but I doubt they would
seriously investigate, considering it's an international fraud case and the
amount is not in the tens or hundreds of thousands of euro.

Can you forward me all the emails he sent to you? Please use the "as
attachment" option of "Forward" in Yahoo! Mail. This helps me find which ISP
the scammer uses. You can also report the crime to abuse@yahoo.fr and let
them know the email account is used for criminal purposes, so they can
suspend it.

Here are some email headers from messages by the "company" provided by the victim:

Subject: Re: Sony Ericsson P910i


hi,

  our phones are brand new in their original factory sealed boxes with 
manual and complete accessories. we have clients in the United states,
Poland and lots at home here. We have been in business for the past 2 
yrs to be precise.

 We are registered and licenced company, below is our company policy:

Name: MOBILEZ PHONES LIMITED

Add:24 Adeshina street isolo, Lagos-Nigeria

reg no:0120475

Anderson.

N.B: To cut the story short, i'll advice you take a sample of the 
p910i to see before placing a higher order but if you wish to take 
all ten units at once then i can allow you make transfer then withold 
the transfer details such that your money remains there until you get 
delivery of goods.

Western Union is not an Escrow service. It is not meant to be as one. Do not use it with recipients who you don't know personally or don't fully trust. Do not use Western Union for any online transactions, least of all transactions involving countries in West Africa.

Withholding the recipient name or the answer to the test question offers no protection against fraud because in some locations Western Union office will make payouts even if those details are not known to the recipient. If you wire money by Western Union to Nigeria, expect the criminals to pick up the money, no matter what schemes they propose. They suggest them precicely because they know they offer no protection to you.

Who is "MOBILE PHONES INC. / MOBILE PHONE INC / FRANCA BROWN"?

+234-8032491094.

Here is a report from a not very satisfied customer of theirs:

I had an encounter with Mr.Franca Brown and Mobilephonesinc. I paid 1636usd and still haven't recieve anything. Now he is telling me about paying $170 us for insurance immunity or shipping immunity,something so. Basically,what he is saying is that it is for the package to past through customs quickly. Have you ever heard of something like this? I'm still in contact with him because i wanted to contact you first and tell you the story before i break contact with him. I'm hoping you give me some advise.

Its been 3 months now since i started dealing with them,first thewy sad it was ok to buy 3 phones(this was the sample order) and then after i sent the money,they told me that i had to upgrade the order to 10 because that was the minimum amount. At this point, i was dealing with Mr. Fidelis Smith. A mrs. Maria Steven then sent an email saying she was the General Manager and that I had to upgrade the orders. After i complained abut this Mrssteven said Mr Fidelis Simith was fired because he was not suppose to make a deal for the 3 orders.

From that point on i started dealing with Mrs. Maria Steven.When I had one more installment of 400 to pay to complete the order Mrs. steven wrote me regularly,telling me to pay it and showing me an invoice . After i sent it i didnt get any response from mrs. steven. After 4 days of no response i checked out the website and its their i saw Franca Brown. So i contacted him and he told me that Mrs. Steven is on maternity leave and that on the record shows that i paid the 1636 usd for ten motorola v3 razr phones.

However,he is now telling me(and this wasn't mentioned by either mr. fidelis smith neither mrs. maria steven) that if i want the order now i have to pay the 170usd that i mentioned in the first paragraph. Otherwise i have to wait on mrs. steven to return.

Management.

On a Dutch language message board we found a report about another phone scam involving the same postal address, in the name of "Fola David" (phonesellers9@yahoo.com) who was requesting Western Union payments to the following recipient.
James Nicolas 
12 Adeola Street Egbeda 
Lagos, Nigeria 

The buyer had orderd Apple iPods, but was then told to pay another US$250 for custom fees is the recipient country. He was told that without that money the merchandise could not be shipped, which is nonsense: Customs duties are always paid by the recipient, not the sender.

Often in Nigerian scams, the scammers try to get the victim to throw good money after bad money, testing just how many times they can get the victim to send even more money after the initial payment. Unscrupulous criminals will milk a gullible person for as much money as they can.

CC KEVIN PHONES INC STORES
This appears to be the same scam as "PHONE HOUSE STORES INCORPORATED" because their website refers to images on the previous (now defunct) website. They offered Motorola Razor V3 phones, first for $220 each, then for $150 each, which is a similar price to other scam sites. They want payment sent via Western Union, in advance (you'd be better off giving the money to charity than doing any business involving this mode of payment, especially to Nigeria).

"PAUL GLASS, ALPINE STORES LTD(UK)"

This scam looks like it may be related to "BB MOBILEZ" as it's sent from an IP address very close to these other scam emails. One major difference is that ALPINE STORES LTD(UK) claims to be UK-based, while in reality the email is also sent from Nigeria. The UK phone numbers are special service numbers (+44 70xx) which can forward incoming calls to any number.

TELECOM PLANET

This company offers cheap mobile phones, has its own website and advertises on various other sites. It claims offices in Lagos, London and the Netherlands. Before doing business with them, consider the following facts:

  • Even though the company claims to have been in business since 1999, the domain of the website (etelecomplanet.com) was only registered on 2005-03-07. The address listed in the registration is Texas, not the UK.
  • The postal address listed for the office in the Netherlands actually belongs to LGSA Marine, a well established marine surveying company who have never heard of TELECOM PLANET.
  • Companieshouse.gov.uk has no record of any established company called TELECOM PLANET in the UK, even though the website claims the company to be one of the biggest electronic retailers in the country.
  • Neither the UK nor Dutch company have a name identifying them as an incorporated company (Limited or BV).
  • Neither the Nigerian nor the Dutch office list a fax number. The UK phone number is a special service number. The Nigerian phone number is a mobile phone.
  • We came across an ad for the company claiming an Ohio address. The name of the person (Naz Hayat) is the same as in the domain registration, but the address doesn't match the registration and the website doesn't mention any US office. The ad lists a US phone number: 9374552010 which is in Dayton, OH, whereas the zip code listed in the ad is in Springfield, OH.
If you have any experience with this company, let us know and forward copies of their emails to us!

As long as the company ships you anything (e.g. a brick) they can give you a tracking number. Is that all it takes to get someone to wire cash to a stranger in Nigeria?

El Future Shop Inc

This company claims to be "one of Spain's leading retailers of high performance, name brand, audio, video, computer, mobile electronics, and home theater products", yet:

  • Its only phone number is a mobile phone.
  • It doesn own a domain name, let alone a Spanish (.es) domain. It uses a free .tk URL for its website.
  • This supposedly Spanish company has no bilingual site. There's no Spanish to be found on their website at all.
  • A limited company in Spain is not called "Inc" but "S.A."
  • The only hit on Google is its own recent ad on Alibaba.com, the trading site.
  • The .tk website uses files hosted at "joeslaptopstore.com", a domain registered on 2005-01-11. There are no Google references to "joeslaptopstore.com" whatsoever. This is another cheap electronics site that looks questionable to us. The text on the main website of "joeslaptopstore.com" is largely a copy of another laptop site, "skyexlaptopstore.com" (registered 2002-01-19), which appears connected to "usanotebook.com" (registered 2001-06-25). The latter two appear to be legitimate sites selling refurbished laptops.
  • The phone number listed in the WHOIS record of "joeslaptopstore.com" is mentioned in a thread on Webhostingtalk.com as being a dialup modem. According to that thread the same phone number was used in trying to set up a fake website by someone accessing from Romania.

Habana Shop, Incorporated. (habana.shop.ms)

This scam is a re-incarnation of "El Future Shop Inc". Like that other scam site it also links to "joeslaptopstore.com". Prices are half of wholesale prices. The website is hosted on a free advertising-supported webhost. It's main phone number is the same Spanish mobile phone (+34 6xx) used in the "El Future" scam.

Information from the website:

We have created a separate page for the domains registered by this Romanian fraud gang. Please follow the links below.


Fsc Mobile store Inc

The company listed no website even though it claims to have over 100 employees. Domains are popular and cheap in Germany, with over 3 million registered .de domains. This "company" listed a free yahoo.com account as its email address (not even yahoo.de -- you'd have to be a German speaker to use that). The company name is another giveaway: Limited liability companies in Germany are either called "GmbH "(like a UK "Ltd") or "AG" (like a UK "PLC"), but not "Inc", which is American. Any online offer of a business calling itself "... store inc" suggests a Nigerian connection, based on our experience. In June we found out that "Fsc Mobile store Inc" now has registered a domain, mainly for sending email ("Fsc Mobiles Phones Stores" <sales@fscmobilestores.com>). The domain is hosted by Rediffmail in India and is registered under a fake name (Indian registrant).

ronzinio@hotmail.com

We received this report about a dubious mobile phone vendor operating from a Hotmail account:

I was looking to buy a number of mobile phones in order to re-sell 
them on ebay. Whilst looking for wholesale mobile phones i came across 
someone who was interested to sell me some. His answers were vague and 
he kept on trying to get me to buy phones from him, i asked if we could 
do the transaction through ebay so i had some kind of protection from 
fraudulent transactions, he refused my offer and further said that i 
should send money via a bank transfer, in the end he was even offering 
for me to pay half then the rest when i recieved the phones. I asked 
that if he was a genuine company which sell mobile phones where is his 
website, he replied with  http://www.mobile-phones-uk.org.uk/, which is 
merely a phone review site. he is operating with the 
free e-mail ronzinio@hotmail.com

After a sales inquiry to this address the following reply was received. It seems that with this dealer any phone costs the same and the shipping rate doesn't vary with the country:

hi there ...

ok,

These are the models that i have for sale: Motorola Razr V3, MPX300,A1000, 
Sony Ericsson P910i , Samsung D500 ,D600, Z130, Z700, P830 , Nokia 6230, 
6230i ,6021 , 6030 , 6260 ,7260,7280, 7610, 7710,6680 , Panasonic X 700,

i will sell you 1 phone-any model you want, for 150 GBP (including
all shipping fees)

if you want to buy more phones,I can make you a BIG DISCOUNT.

10 phones for 1080 GBP

15 phones for 1280 GBP

20 phones for 1500 GBP

The prices include all the shipping fees

all the phones are brand new and are unlocked.All my phones have 1
year international warranty and will come to you sealed with all the
original accesories and papers.

if you agree with the price, please tell me how many are you interested to 
buy.

if you want to buy the phone from me you will recive FOR FREE 1 x Nokia 7610
reply me!

P.S you can check my site for other models:

thank you

Another instance of the mobile phone number was found used for a job scam (advance fee fraud). This company is called "WIDE ASSOCIATES", just like the fake mobile phone seller ("MARK COLE" scam) and, surprize, surprize! It also shares a phone number with that scam (+234-8055308737):

Here's what they say about themselves:

Megaphone distributors incorporated, established in 
1990, has coporate offices in cape town(southAfrica), 
Lagos(Nigeria) and cairo(Egypt) is the industries 
leader in cell phones and accessories.

Consider this:
  • Domain registered on 2004-05-26 (a bit late for a 15 year old company), hosted by a company that charges $39.95/year for hosting
  • Two free webmail accounts for email - no @megaphonedistributor.com addresses. This suggests they read their email in an Internetcafe, not an office.
  • Only phone number is a mobile phone
  • Only Google reference to their street address are their own ads and the following scam warning:

Compare the wording with the following:

ACCESSORIES, SIM FREE, UNLOCKED TO ALL NETWORK, NO LOGOS AND THEY COME WITH
ONE YEAR INTERNATIONAL WARRANTY. SHIPMENT IS THRU UPS AIR SERVICE (INCLUDE

The latter was from a posting on 2005-03-29 by "DUKE CLEARENCE" whose email address was excelphone@excelphone.biz. The similarities in the wording are stunning, considering the two month gap and the different company names. It's like these two guys follow the same scam manual.

The domain for this online mobile phone and computer store was only registered on 2005-07-06, only the day before the first person asked us whether the site was legitimate. There is no postal address or phone number to be found on the whole site. Pictures of the phones seem to have been "borrowed" off other mobile phone sites, with the copyright notices and URLs still visible.

WHOIS details for domain "paygmobiles.net":

The name and postal address below are that of a travel agent. Most likely the address of an innocent third party was abused for the domain registration.

Email address monik_mzts@yahoo.es also appears to have been used in recent auctions of Nokia phones at eBay.ca. Apparently these auctions did not complete, as eBay removed the items.


E-Market World Shop (http://web.site2you.com/E-MarketWorldShopBox/index.html)

This claims to be an electronics store in Romania, a country known for having one of the highest incidences of online fraud in Europe (along with Ukraine and Russia). So I would advise to be very careful to start with.

The company doesn't use its own domain for the website, but a free webhosting service (http://web.site2you.com). This looks unprofessional and is very untypical for legitimate electronics stores.

The site lists a 2004 copyright, yet the domain they use for email, "e-marketworldshop.com" was only created on 2005-06-17. This domain is a MSN Personal Address domain which cost them $34.95 for the first year. When you try to open this domain as a website (http://www.e-marketworldshop.com) it attempts to install a plug-in on your computer, which could be Adware or Spyware.

There's not a single Google hit for the company name except for their own site (and very shortly this page here).

The prices are unrealistically lower. For example, a Sony VAIO VGN-A690 is listed for USD 900, while US discounters typically sell them for between USD 2300-2800. Even refurbished models sold at online auctions cost twice as much as what the store charges. There is simply no way anybody can buy computers and resell them at a profit with prices like that.

The main phone number on the contact page is a Romanian mobile phone number (as are all +40 72, +40 74, +40 76 and +40 78 numbers). The fax number is in the United States. In other words, if the supplied postal address was fake, you wouldn't have a clue where these guys were based.

The "About us" page mentions Western Union, a payment method which is not safe unless used with trusted parties. The recipient in a Western Union payment can not be traced.

Brititel Electronics Ltd. is a fraud
According to their own homepage, this company is "UK Largest Mobile Phones Dealer". This is clearly not true: The UK government registry at companieshouse.gov.uk does not even have an entry for any company called "Bititel Electronics Ltd." or any similar names.

The domain for the website was registered on 2005-06-11, only four weeks ago. The domain is registered under a US postal address, probably that of an innocent third party. The only references to the company name are their own ads on various trade forums, such as Alibaba.com, b2bfreezone.com and bizviet.net. The same is true for "Elenor Mitchels" who is supposed to be their contact person.

Some of the text for the website was "borrowed" off onestopphoneshop.co.uk, a legitimate UK mobile phone dealer.

"COUNTY TELECOM LIMITED"

The website is hosted on a free hosting site, the only email addresses are Yahoo and Hotmail, the phone number is a Nigerian mobile number. The email address is a bland generic label (simstorephones) typical for fake companies from Nigeria.

There are only a handful of Google references on the WWW to the street address used by the company - all of them in sales solicitations by this company. Some of the hits mention one "Micheal uzoh, Director" who runs this company. There appears to be only one person by that name on the WWW and all mentions are in classified ads (mostly phones but also laptops). It's always interesting when someone forgets to capitalise his surname or makes spelling mistakes in the name. Most people pay close attention to their own name.

The company accepts Western Union but no credit cards or PayPal. Credit cards and PayPal offer anti-fraud protection to the buyer, Western Union does not. You should never use Western Union to pay someone who you only know via the Internet.

Before switching to simstorephones@hotmail.com, the current number was associated with address countyphones@hotmail.com (which is still reflected in the name of the free website). Why the name change? That other address was used as recently as 2005-07-28, about six weeks ago.

"Mr Mario Alexander, Top Mobiles"

The address below is fake. In UK addresses, the street number preceeds the street name, unlike in addresses of many Central and Eastern European countries. Google finds many references to a "Gateway Street" in Leicester but not London. The Yahoo address does not inspire confidence. The 03221 phone area code does not seem to be commonly used. Conventional London numbers start with 20.

your-mobile-world.com (2005-09-12)

"your-mobile-world.com" is a fraud. It's not a real business. We suspect the primary purpose of the website is to collect credit card details of people trying to place orders there so that they can be used for credit card fraud elsewhere.

The website of "your-mobile-world.com" seems to be largely based on the contents of Chumbo.com, a legitimate retailer. Compare:

Here is the original of this text at Chumbo.com:
http://www.chumbo.com/Help.aspx?t=about

Who We Are

MobileWorld is an online retailer of consumer electronics. With our nationwide distribution and automated order processing, we offer exceptional product availability and expedited delivery to our customer base of consumers, government, academic, and small business.

Founded in 1998, MobileWorld has hundreds of thousands of  customers and was awarded back to back PC Magazine Editors' Choice Awards in 1999 and 2000. MobileWorld is headquartered in New York, NY, United States.

What We Do

At MobileWorld, we strive to always be ahead of the curve . We offer our customers an incredibly diversified technology-related product assortment and utilize our online merchandising expertise to make sure the product you are looking for can be found in a convenient fashion. We also ensure prompt delivery by offering free FedEx 2Day shipping on all orders.

Chumbo.com has been online since 1997 and has a very respectable Alexa rating of 29,450. The Traffic Rank for "your-mobile-world.com" by contrast is about 1.6 million, which basicaly says Alexa barely knew they existed and is definitely not in line with a site that boasts of "hundreds of thousands of customers". The rating is hardly suprising though considering the site really was only created on 2005-09-12 (three weeks ago as we write this).

The various trust seals such as Hacker Safe (Scanalert), VeriSign on the home page of the fake site are deceptive because the links don't verify the URL of the site in which they are embedded, which is how these trust seals are supposed to be used. Instead they are plain links to the home page of the verification sites. The Trust-e link actually leads to a warning that the referring site is using the logo without authorization.

Here are their fake contact details:

We're always glad to hear from our customers. If you have any questions about our company, the services we provide, or the products we offer, just let us know. And definitely tell us what you think of our site - we're really listening.

These are the same scam as "your-mobile-world.com" and e-plasmaworld.net.

This is a fake mobile phone seller claiming to be based in New Zealand or Costa Rica. All these recently registered domains refer to the same website. Neither of them lists an address as the registrant that matches the listed business address of the company. Either the registrant is in a different country or is hidden by a proxy service.

This fake store demands payment by Western Union. It's a scam. Any money you send is irretrievably lost.

For the emobileworld.net scam the criminals even purchased Google ads in order to get maximum exposure before the site gets taken down.

For our records we require the message "Buying Ecurrency" to be attached to the transfer.Inform us when the payment is done and provide the shipping address so we could ship your order same day.

The "Costa Rica" version of the scam still uses the same New Zealand telephone number as the "New Zealand" version.

e-plasmaworld.net

This is the same scam as "your-mobile-world.com" and e-mobile-world.com.

This website is a fake mobile phone seller in new Zealand. All these recently registered domains refer to the same website. Neither of them lists an address in New Zealand as the registrant.

This fake store demands payment by Western Union. It's a scam. Any money you send is irretrievably lost.

newdigiworld.com

This company claims to be based in Beijing and to have been in business for almost 10 years, but the domain was registered only about two months ago. The copyright notice (which claims a starting date of 2001) lists a website URL instead of a company name as the copyright holder for the site contents. Nowhere on the site does the company refer to itself by name.

The registration information for the domain "newdigiworld.com" doesn't have a valid postal address as it is lacking a street address. There is no postal address on the contact page of the website either. The phone and fax number are not the same length. Normal Beijing phone numbers are 8 digits long, but the phone number listed below is longer.

Some pages on the "newdigiworld.com" site refer to another non-existent site using the domain "digital666.com". Most likely newdigiworld.com is a reincarnation of digital666.com, which was hosted on the same server as newdigiworld.com (siteem.com). There are no Google matches for Digital666.com.

The company contacts buyers on various eBay sites using a Hotmail address.

Global Phones Limited (2005-09-17)

This is a fake Nigerian phone seller claiming to be UK based. Any payment you send will be irretrievably lost.

Like many Nigerian scammers using a +44 70xx number (which is a redirection service) to pretend being in the UK they are awfully confused about their UK geography: They claim to be based in Leeds, but then list a postal address in Manchester. They say Yorkshire is a "province" when it's a county. They claim Lancashire is a city in the county of Manchester, even though Lancashire is a county. It borders the county of Greater Manchester, which includes the city of Manchester.

Snippets from their website:

We at Global Phones Limited is one of UK’s leading businesses in telecommunications, Computers and electronics wholesale export. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves to our future clients and customers as a company that prides its self on dealing with only real product. We only offer product that has been verified with official documentation and comes with valid warranty.

Electronics World Limited

It seems odd that a company that has its own street named after it ("Electronics World Avenue") uses a mobile phone as its main telephone number (8034671756).

Company Name: Electronics World Limited
Contact Person: Mr Elvis Blue
Address: 1 Electronics World Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos State, Nigeria
Zip: 23401
Telephone: 234 00 8034671756
Fax: 234 01 7757017

The same phone number (8034671756) is connected to "lifebestphonestores@yahoo.co.uk / Dan Anderson".


electrobillig.com / Landbrand GMBH / camtel-gmbh.com / Ekloef GMBH

Fake electronics store in Germany. The street used in the Berlin postal address is actually a street in Klagenfurt, Austria. The domain was only created in December 2005, registered to an address in France. The same phone number and street address was also used by an equally fake looking "Camtel GmbH". Before that there was an "Ekloef GMBH".

dennypratama.com

The domain was only registered a few months ago. It claims to be based in Indonesia, yet claims business hours from 9:30am to 5:30 pm EST, which would only make sense for a business on the US East coast, no in the Far East. 9:30am to 5:30 pm EST is 9:30pm to 5:30am Indonesian time.

This is the same scam as "Fashion Mobile LTD." (e-fashionmobile.net) whose website is identical.
