Update On The VL Martin Enterprises Sendmeabox.com Reshipping Scammers
It seems Top-Recommendations.com has really ruffled the feathers of this particular group of crooks behind the reshipping/package forwarding scam at Sendmeabox.com that we originally warned our readers about in our previous article on 8/3/2017! Not only have we been flooded here with ridiculous spam comments full of lies and BS from these scammers posting under fake names and fake email addresses, (I refuse to engage any further with these scammers so we are now blocking their comments) but they are also posting their garbage under fake profiles at various sites around the internet in an attempt to discredit top-recommendations.com as well as their victims and others who post anything negative about their fake VL Martin Enterprises Global Logistics “company” that cannot be validated anywhere as a legitimate business!
These scammers has gone so far as to publicly slandering one of their victims for simply realizing they were being scammed and therefore reporting it and turning over the merchandise they received to the police as they should have! These were items such as Apple iPhones, laptop computers and other high dollar electronics which is reported by federal agencies as items typically purchased by criminals using stolen credit card information! Nilson Report estimates that in 2016, losses due to credit card fraud topped $24.71 billion and 47% of the world’s credit card fraud happens right here in the U.S!
Top-Recommendations Posts Fake Articles?…REALLY?
One of the sendmeabox.com scammers posted a complaint on a website called “reportscam” saying top-recommendations posts fake articles and that our
“web-site doesn’t pass any test on objectivity and legitimacy. Ludicrous and absurd information about the companies is allowed to be posted. It has no grain of truth. Most probably the web-site is a satellite of the competitors. The sole purpose of the web-site is to undermine the reputation and role of the “respectable” American companies. “
First of all, Top-Recommendations.com has been online since 2012 when I personally registered the domain myself. We started exposing all the various job scams and fraudulent websites that were targeting unsuspecting victims in 2014 and every suspected scam we have exposed since 2014 has proven to be in fact..a true scam engineered by criminals whose agenda was to target job seekers who post their resumes on job sites like Careerbuilder etc. and their goal is to steal money and the identities of these hard working innocent people and in the case of re-shipping scams putting their victims in the position to face possible criminal charges of receiving stolen property and credit card fraud not to mention identity theft!
So I guess if you were the sendmeabox scammer whose scam was exposed, posting a complaint in a scam reporting community to try and discredit the source as a way of retaliation will surely make you look more legitimate and trustworthy don’t you think? (holding back a snicker here)
Well their so-called “complaint” gets better folks..
Email address stated in WHOIS data is registered on free email services. Does it sound like a legitimate company?
I don’t get their point there. Most people use gmail and other free email accounts. At least the email from our registrar gets delivered along with all the spam emails from scammers who scraped our whois information from the registrars database even though we purchased domain privacy to protect ourselves from scammers like these. However the “legitimate company” question they posed…well my stomach is still sore from all the laughing I did at that one since top-recommendations.com is not and has never claimed to be a “company”! It is merely a website with a blog format.
“Their server 188.8.131.52 displays a bunch of suspicious web-sites, like https://blokbud.lviv.ua/ or http://mengeme.com/”
According to https://www.scamvoid.com the web-site has Low Traffic Volume. This is kind of proof of selectivity in search and creation of the “compromising information” that is completely unfounded and just bears negative buzz around the company.
Our “server” btw, happens to be a top shared hosting account on cloudflare which is a very reputable company that hosts thousands of other websites as well as the reportscam website you scammers are posting your fake complaints and comments on. None of those “suspicious” websites as they claim are owned or registered by us nor do we have any control over who hosts their websites on cloudflare’s servers.
Top-recommendations.com has had a total of 54,137 views and 382 comments since 2014 and consistently gets page 1 rankings on google for nearly every article we post. So I personally don’t give a rats a** what scamvoid.com says. Their info has no relevance to what our purpose here is which is protecting job seekers from scammers such as those behind Sendmeabox.com!
And finally here’s their most hiliarious claim:
When entering the web-site the first thing to catch an eye is abundance of muscle pills, tampons and via-gra ads. It’s the first signal of illegitimacy.
Sorry we don’t post any ads for tampons, muscle pills or viagra on this website! We do however allow google adsense to serve their customer paid ads through our site which are retargeted to our visitors interests based on the websites our visitors have previously visited. So if one of our visitors recently visited a viagra website or a tampon website they could very well be served ads by google featuring these products they showed a previous interest in. Top-recommendations.com has no control over the ads google adsense serves. I might add that google serves advertisements on MILLIONS of websites like ours worldwide! So it looks like the sendmeabox scammers must have a keen interest in viagra, muscle pills and tampons if that’s the ads they see at our site. Speaks volumes about THEIR character eh? None of our own ads we do have control over has ever featured any products like that.
But on a positive note, the scammer who posted that nonsense concluded his rant with some backlink love for us with this line:
Just to prove the point here’s an example of lies they spit: https://top-recommendations.com/v-l-martin-enterprises-logistics-manager-reshipping-scam-at-sendmeabox-com/
I have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll see out of them. I’ll keep you posted of any updates 😉 I’m sure they are already out scouting other business names they can steal to plot their next re-shipping scam.
UPDATE 8/15/2017 – Reportscam.com has removed the fake complaint by the sendmeabox scammers about top-recommendations.com from it’s website.Disclosure** We get paid a commission when you purchase from LifeLock using one of our links.
