Beware of BuySell.com Fraudulent Sellers

It has come to our attention that certain individuals that are selling merchandise on BuySell.com are impersonating our corporate identity. They are listing merchandise for sale under the name “Shipsurance”. These listings have nothing to do with our company and we suggest contacting the authorities and BuySell.com (as we have done) as these listings are clearly fraudulent. The listed sellers are in Montreal (3466 St-Denis Montreal,QC H2X 3L3 Canada) and they are requesting payment to a bank in Madrid (Torrejon de Ardoz,Av. Madrid 40L 1Y2,28850,Spain).


BuySell.com’s parent company is Trader Corporation and can be contacted at livesupport@trader.ca or 800-807-4373.

  • I had an experience with a BuySell.com scammer:
    I found a good deal on a Cervelo carbon bike with Dura Ace components on BuySell.com and was emailing a guy, supposedly named Larry, about it, he claimed the bike was at a warehouse in Canada because he moved to Italy and his buddy took it to the warehouse and that Shipsurance would contact me to get money and to ship the bike to me. The grammar that the guy used was awful and he was very vague about the specifics about when, where, how he got it and about the bike, and I knew something was fishy.
    I called the real Shipsurance and they told me about this scam and I thought I would share my experinces with this.
    The email address that this scammer used was larry1978@live.ca .
    Be vary careful about the bikes on their website, as many also seem to good to be true and probably are.
    I contacted buysell.com and told them and hopefully they can get rid of these scams.

  • Justin,

    Thank you for notifying others of your experience. We were also made aware of a similar fraud scheme on craigslist from a Canadian seller asking for funds to be transferred to an account in Spain.

    Shipsurance

    • I’m a stroke victim whose been desperately seeking a Nu-Step Recumbent trainer to help me walk etc, because I’m also an amputee – well, I found it, for $1500 CDN, blah blah blah, same as everybody here, but his name was Leonard Marius Tudor, in Brescia, Italy…to my total horror I’ve stumbled across this – TOO LATE – becuse I believed what I was being told was the truth,,,and OMG I feel so stupid! Is there anything I can do?

  • Thank you…..my son had been emailing Larry Whang, in PQ, claiming he just got a job in Italy and was selling his 2009 Pinarello FP6, my son agreed. We got notice from Shipsurance, asking to submit the money via Western Union to a Sears Agent in Italy. On the shipsurance notice, they had indicated that Western Union and Shipsurance were in a partnership agreement and that some of the Transfer Fees would be donated to American Red Cross for Haiti Relief……. I did not do it, the lady at Western Union verified that they had absolutely no partnership with Shipsurance.

  • I had a similar experience with an ‘Emma Green’ who told me she just got a job in London and was selling a camera a Canon EOS 1DS Mark III. I received a note Sears asking if I would send the money to an address in Italy. Something they were doing as a partnership with Western Union and that some of the transfer fees would be donated to a Haiti fund. This made me very suspicious, why had BuySell become Sears and why did Canadian dollars suddenly have to become Euros? Beware of emmagreen49@live.com!

  • I had a similar experience recently with Emma Green concerning a bicycle (Cervelo Soloist) on Craigslist. The story goes that she just got a job in Italy so her friend in Quebec was holding the bike on behalf of Wal-Mart classified services. Wal-Mart has no record of this bike or person. Email that was used: emmagreen49@live.com

  • Dan, I just had the same issue with “emma green” with the cervelo soloist on craigslist. Did my research and I’m glad I did. Sketchy stuff. Glad I didn’t fall for it. I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night. 🙂

  • I saw an add on victoria Kiiji fom the same “Larry Whang” guy. The add is for a cervelo P3.
    I enquired about the bike. Here was the response.
    “Hello,

    My bike is still for sale, in excellent condition both cosmetically as well as mechanically!The price includes shipping and insurance!
    I ‘m in Italy so I’m using WalMart services to take care of this deal, smooth and safe. A friend of mine from Quebec took the bike and left it there at the WalMart warehouse,in their custody.
    The price includes shipping and insurance to your address and you will have 10 days of inspection.
    If you want to proceed , reply me your full name and shipping address and i will begin the shipping through WalMart.
    After that Walmart will start the shipping and will contact you with the following details:Tracking number,shipping method,delivery time and payment details.
    If you need more information feel free to email !

    Larry”

    Sounded fishy…glad I checked. I reported it with Kiiji.

  • found emma green scammer on craigslist ad in denver for precor elliptical the same exact ad was on new yorks backpage as well

  • I too just finished a deal thru email with LARRY WHANG to buy a vintage coke machine for $1500.00 fully restored, where all other legit people are selling the same machine for 7000 + here is his email to me:

    Hello Ed ,

    The price of 1500.00$ CAD includes shipping and insurance through Wal Mart .
    They will shipp the machine directly to your address.

    “”The coke machine is in PERFECT condition and works everything .
    Anyway you will have 10 days of inspection and if by any reason you decide to send the machine back , wal mart will refund your money.

    Let me know your details so i can start the transaction.

    Thanks,

    Larry””

  • Just had the same thing happen with this “Larry Whang” guy.

    Looking at this Serotta bike
    http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/2084432086.html

    After I contacted the guy, I received this:

    Hello,

    Thanks everyone for the info. I’m not pursuing this anymore (obviously). And BestBuy?!

  • “Larry Whang” with another scam ad: http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/2088631040.html

    Shipsurance note: The link looks like it was removed by Craigslist

  • I had the same experience as Elsa, but for a Cervelo S3 bike, advertised on Atlanta Craigslist. This time the reply email was from a “Janet Stacks”, email address janet.stacks@live.ca.

    The wording of the email from “Janet” was the same as in Elsa’s November 23 post, word for word:
    Hi ,my bike is still for sale , in excellent condition both cosmetically as well as mechanically .
    For the moment I’m in Italy with my father and the bike is here with us.
    My father has signed a contract with Bestbuy Outlet Center and they will help us to sell the bike .

    If you want to proceed reply me your full name and the name of your town where you live or the address from a BestBuy store closer to your town.

    Please note that for an extra 50 $ BestBuy will ship the bike directly to your address.

    Thanks you very much.

    Then I got an email from “Best Buy Outlet Center, with Best Buy logos and all, very official looking, asking for payment to a “Best Buy Agent” in Milan through Western Union. It’s a good thing I decided to check it out.

  • I just engaged in a little scambaiting with Larry Whang. He is still operating with the email address larry1978@live.ca and still advertising high end bikes. Here is his initial email:

    Hello,

    My bike is still for sale, in excellent condition both cosmetically as well as mechanically.The price includes shipping and insurance.
    I ‘m in Italy so I’m using BestBuy services to take care of this deal. A friend of mine from Quebec took the bike and left it there at the BestBuy warehouse,in their custody.

    After that BestBuy will start the shipping and will contact you with the following details:Tracking number,shipping method,delivery time and payment details.
    If you need more information feel free to email !

    The recipient on the bogus BestBuy Outlet invoices was as follows:

    Best Buy agent details – First Name:FLORINA GEORGIANA,Last Name:CIOBANU, Address: Via Alessandro Manzoni, City: Milano, Zip Code: 20121 , Country: Italy.
    Amount to be sent – $CA1,000.00

    I went to the bogus “Bestbuy Outlet” website – it was an absolute joke – check it out
    http://72.149.207.123/BestBuyOutletCenter/
    A five year old could build a better website than that.

    After a weeks worth of email banter – I decided to finally “close” the deal and sent him proof of payment with a creative Western Union receipt.

    He accused me of being a scammer after I sent him the Western Union receipt, because it said “This is not a bill” on it (because it is not a bill, but indeed a receipt). – but “Larry” is too stupid to understand such a concept.

    I keep reporting these ads to Buysell – but they keep cropping up. All the ads look the same – a high end bike photographed against a plain outside wall, extensive component listing, always under market value.

    Very annoying – but hopefully no unsuspecting victim will ever fall prey to this pathetic scamster.

  • Emma Green is now trying to sell a QuickGym in Dallas…here is the scam email I received in response, I was looking into it and found your posts, thank you thank you thank you…I will not be scammed!!!

    I am glad to read this blog and not send the money, Thanks to all 1/4/2011

  • I am seeing the same type of scam on Craigslist – Toronto today – January 18th.

    Felt Bike at a too good to be true price.

    The person in Maria Gray – in Italy and the bike is in Sears a warehouse in Quebec.

    Scam

  • Dang, thank goodness for this forum. When you so want something to be true, even when you know it’s too good to be true, it’s a good thing you can track the information here down without too much trouble. I was very embarrassingly close to getting scammed because I so wanted a Cannondale SuperSix I found on the web at a crazy good deal.

    The original ad was from “Backpage.com” out of Los Angeles and the company being used as a cover is Sears Outlet. The seller’s name “Andy Brown” uses andy2006brown@hotmail.com and 10st3r@hotmail.com as his email addresses. 150 West 57th Street New York,NY 10019 USA as his USA address. The person/place he’s asking the money be sent to is Best Buy agent details – First Name:FLORINA GEORGIANA,Last Name:CIOBANU, Address: Via Alessandro Manzoni, City: Milano, Zip Code: 20121 , Country: Italy.

    I got this email as part of the scam:

    from Sears Outlet
    to fpcelico@gmail.com
    date Sat, Jan 22, 2011 at 5:26 PM
    subject Invoice Verification

    Dear Customer,

    Please inform us if you have received the invoice for payment and the shipping information.*NOTE It may occur that your e-mail doesn’t support HTML language and that is why you haven’t received the invoice from us. Please check your bulk/junk/spam/ messages, the invoice may have ended there because of the ever increasing filters of the e-mails nowdays.Also when you go to Western Union Office please use the GREEN FORM to transfer the money to our agent in Italy.Please follow our exact steps for a fast and safe transaction.

    Sincerely,
    James Malone
    Sears Outlet Center
    Customer Specialist

    Another person listed in the phony invoice I got was Jessica Anderson, who apparently lives with Andy at his NYC address listed above.

    The drill was that the bike was in a warehouse in NYC (a bit weird since the ad was in a LA newspaper) Andy was in Italy and was selling cheap because he needed to sell fast and the request was for me to send the money to Florina in Milan via Western Union.

    An interesting twist is that when I Googled Andy Brown, the name came up on Linked In that he was a national sales manager for Sears lending credence to the scam.

    Anyway, I bummed that the SuperSix won’t be mine but glad that at least my money will!

    I’m going to copy this post and link and forward it on to Sears customer service.

    Thank you all, BuySell.com, and Shipsurance for saving me from myself! Frank

  • New scam out there looks very similar to these, makes sense now as his price was low. Selling an Orbea with 800 miles through Sears Outlet, was his wife’s bike….

    Don’t work with Adam Foster

  • There’s also an Argon bike from the Dallas Backpage by Claudio Hijerra, also supposedly through Sears Outlet. The other information is exactly the same as listed by Jennifer above.

  • A guy named Claudio Hijerra is selling a cannondale bike and I googled his name and found this website. Looks like I lucked out before it was too late. He has a canadian email address, the listing was in a local classifieds in Tampa, and he says sears outlet will contact me. Thanks to all who alerted me to this!
