The Shipping: Even though they have no intention of sending you anything, they will continue charging you more and more fees until you refuse to pay any more.

How can I help?

Scammers use bank accounts, Zelle accounts and other assorted payment types. Let us know the details and we will try and shut down their accounts.

Our goal is to gather as much information as possible about and the individuals behind it. By providing us with details about the criminals, we can create a comprehensive understanding of the scammer’s network and take steps to shut it down.

We welcome any information about the scammers, even if you haven’t lost any money. Disrupting their payment methods can have a greater impact on their operations than just shutting down a website, which can easily be recreated.

Protip: If the scammers provide you with bank account information, request that they use Bitcoin instead. If they offer a Zelle account, ask for a bank account to transfer the funds to. You can report multiple accounts to us for further investigation.

You should never give your banking information to these scammers.

Bitcoins are just like digital cash that hackers cant get their hands on in any way. At the same time, your true identity is hidden for good. This goes a long way toward avoiding targeted data breaches like the one at the UPS Store. In the case of BTC, consumers benefit from anonymity because all of their data is kept confidential and stored using blockchain technology. Transparency, on the other hand, allows users to conduct transactions in their own time and with complete freedom. The great thing about BTC is that it gives users complete power over it, as well as the ability to keep their coins safe and stable. Another important point is that since the whole transaction is built on blockchain technology, users should expect high levels of security.
