Scot Dench [email protected] ordering scam

In the last couple of days we received a request for a quote and order of 80 HP ink cartridges shown at the bottom of this email.

We requested a contact phone number and address for the quote. A phone number of 0881256701 and address 45 Eric Fenning Drive, Surf Beach NSW 2536 was provided for the contact details.

The phone number being 08 does not match a NSW address, and there was a reference to having the cartridges shipped to Matraville, but no full address given and being informed we would be told the address once payment cleared.

Calling the phone number a fax machine answers, so it was no real phone number at all.

The request, vagueness of shipping address and phone number not matching the state of the delivery address or smelt fishy.

After wasting some time trying to contact the Federal police and then scam watch http://www.scamwatch.gov.au/ I called Visa and quoted the credit card numbers provided.

They then gave US number for the supplier of the credit cards, and I looked up the number and found them to be provided by http://www.cachevisa.com. I then called them and quoted the numbers and the names for the cards provided. They said the name did not match the card numbers and they would advise the owners of the cards of the attempted use of their cards.

No one was going to take any action to actually catch this scammer. Hopefully if “Scot Dench” contacts you, you will find this and know that the attempted purchase is a scam.
