    Members should be extremely careful if they receive any trade communication from this company: -

    Mega Trade Star Co., Ltd.
    Mega Trade Star Via Vittorio Veneto,
    63 - 36035 Marano Vicentino (Vicenza) Italia

    They use an ingenious method to try and obtain your master password details by asking you to use their encryption site to download an order for product.

    If you have accidentally given any such information, immediately change your passwords.

    Re: Warning

    Could be useful to say which method they use as once known they may try similar under a different name and / or there may be others trying a similar scam.

    Thanks for the warning though it will hopefully help some people here

    Re: Warning

    This company gives some nice potted history about themselves - to give confidence. They say that they require a pro-forma invoice against their official order which can only be downloaded from a "secure site" Apparently, the file is too big to email !!!! Xls files are small as we all know, so start to be suspicious.
    Clicking on their link will take you to a very professional looking encryption site. Up pops a window, asking you to entre your prime email address and password. Wait a minute - what password? They did not give one. The uninitiated and unwary at this stage might then try to use their primary password (most of us have one) Bingo, this then goes off to the bad guys, who within seconds, will try to access your PayPal account and similar. Easy then to get your money.
    How do I know? A customer of mine has just lost over £2400 to these people. A smart guy usually, he inadvertently typed in his password, before realising that he had made a bad mistake. He got round to changing his PayPal password three hours later. That was when he found his money missing. These people incidentally are not in Italy!

    Can I also give a warning about an individual going under the name of "Eunice Johnson" from the Cameroon's. We traced his IP address to Greece. Very active on many Chinese B2B sites, claiming to buy and supply many products.
