    BE WARNED-FAKE ESCROW AND MOBILE PHONE SCAM FROM ITALY AND USA

    I have recently been caught up in a scam for which I lost £984.00 via a Moneygram transaction due to a fake escrow company and mobile phone wholesaler, both of who could be the same person. I will give you full details in order to investigate the persons involved before anyone else loses money in the same way. I will explain the circumstances so be careful if you come across these cowboys. If anyone has already ad experience with them, please let me know.

    A few months ago contacted a company in Italy called Hansol SRL run by a man named Mr Freddy Peter as I was interested in buying some mobile phones for a new small business that I was to set up. He may also be known as John Tucker or Alan James and uses the following two addresses in Italy:
    Freddy Peter, Via Sargato 38, Rome, 00100, Italy, Tel: 39-020-756234, Fax: 39-020-756521, Email: peterfreddy20005@yahoo.com
    John Tucker, Via Ragussa 10, Rome, 00100, Italy
    His agent whom I paid the money via Moneygram is known as Alan James, Via Cardinal Caprara 25, Italy, 00167, Email: alanjamesme23@yahoo.com
    Having now done more checks, Alan James is the registrant of the domain name OnlineWorldDelivery.com which recently changed from Online-Deliverys.com.
    This company known as World Delivery Inc has the following address: 766 Chestnut St # 3, 94070, San Carlos, USA.

    I made an agreement with Mr Freddy Peter for some mobile phones with a total value of 1315 euros which he said he would leave with the OnlineWorldDeliverys.com who he trusted as an escrow company. I would receive a tracking number and should send the funds via Moneygram to his agent Alan James where the funds would stay until I had checked the merchandise. However, although I received full details and tracking number, my money was taken by Alan James, no merchandise has arrived and all communication went cold. The tracking number is connected to a database and is fake as is the whole transaction. I have attached a copy of the first response from OnlineWorldDeliverys.com with tracking number, details etc. I will not be the first or the last person to be scammed by these people but I want to get them stopped.
