    Here is the answer after my inquiry
    corporations@sos.mo.gov>

    Dear Ms. Bersali,

    Thank you for contacting the Missouri Secretary of State’s office, Business Services Division.

    After researching our business records, I did not find a company by the name of C&K Shipping LLC. I did; however, find a company by the name of C & K Shipping Inc. out of Kansas City Missouri. I am attaching their filings with our office for your review.

    To further investigate the company or determine if any complaints have been filed, you may wish to contact the Missouri Attorney General’s office at 1-800-392-8222 or visit their website at http://www.ago.mo.gov. And also, the Clayton Missouri area Better Business Bureau by phone at 1-314-645-3300 or online at http://www.bbb.org/stlouis.

    If you have another business name you would like searched, please let me know, or search our records online at http://www.sos.mo.gov/business/search.

    I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Sincerely,

    Debbie Evans

      Thank you for the information! Quite frequently,these scammers will try to steal or closely copy the identity of a legitimate business in order to appear legitimate to their victims. The scammers realize many victims will research the business name to see if they really exist and that’s how they fool victims because many times the victim may not see or question the inconsistencies between the legit business and the fake one as long as they see there is (or was) a real business operating under that name.

      • admin says:

        LOL these scammers actually has a link on their contact page to the “Missouri Secretary of State Official Website Authenticity” at https://bsd.sos.mo.gov/BusinessEntity/BusinessEntityDetail.aspx?ID=3625494. But notice the registered business name on the Secretary of State website is C&K Shipping, Inc NOT C&K Shipping, LLC! Inc and LLC are 2 different business entities. And of course the mailing address is different also. That’s the BIG RED Flag that shows they have stolen the identity of the legitimate company- C&K Shipping, Inc.

        • Bersali says:

          OMG !
          Do you think it’s necessary for me to tell the Secretary in Missouri?

          • admin says:

            No, I think they already know it now after they read your inquiry email to them, however you could report them to the Missouri Attorney Generals Office, or file a complaint with the FBI’s Internet Crime site at http://www.ic3.gov

    • admin says:

      Do not reply to them or give them anymore information. If they call you-Block their phone number if you have that feature on your phone, and if you receive any packages return them to sender and report this to the post office and let them know these criminals are trying to involve you in a reshipping and money mule scam.

    August 2015 – they are now operating as “C&K Shipping” using exactly the same format of emails. Alex Levine is the name on the emails still. They have impressive looking registration details with the Missouri Business Filings.

    See them here : http://ck-shipping.com/index.html

    • admin says:

      Thanks Julie for the info. I did some checking and ck-shipping.com was registered the same day as LRF-shipping.com which was June 5th 2015 using the same address 8000 Maryland Ave. Clayton, MO 63105. It’s not uncommon for these scammers to throw up several identical websites under different company names, it just gives them more opportunities to hook victims.

      • Julie Stewart says:

        Well, thank YOU – it was when I was checking them out after receiving their emails that I found you after stumbling in the search engine. Once your article confirmed what I’d suspected I wanted to share the information that I’d found.

        Bonne nuit from France!
