Office Furniture Fraud
Please add the following company to your list of “beware” customers. They approached Spacio Office Dezigns to purchase office furniture, requesting it “urgently”. Luckily Spacio Office Dezigns were relatively cautious and when they saw that the request was sent form a Yahoo mail address with no supplied physical address or landline numbers, they did not even order the goods until the so-called funds were cleared. All their information is as follows:
Company name: Valostar14CC; email firstname.lastname@example.org; contact person Matthew and cell no 073 653 5529.
Below is a copy of the EFT proof of payment. A noticeable difference is that the full banking details of the recipient is reflected, which is not standard. After they realised that the EFT funds would obviously not reflect on the Spacio Office Dezigns bank account within 24 hours, they deposited a cheque for said amount into their account. Needless to say the cheque bounced within 4 days, with the relevant bank not interested in following up a possible fraud case.
