Received a call from 323-284-6307. Thick accent on the other end. Said his name was Adam Goldberg (isn’t this an actor??). Wanted to confirm my order, but could only receive payment via PayPal. To my curiosity, I did place an order back in September but cancelled it prior to shipment. ‘Adam’ was referencing this order and said he just received the order instructions yesterday (in December – 3mo. after initial placement), but I would need to send payment through PayPal before he could release shipment. He already had my information (name, phone, email) from this previous order online. I let him send the invoice, but inquired who the email would be coming from?? I asked if the email was coming from the company which I placed the order. He replied, ‘No, it will be coming from Adam Goldberg.’ Red flag!!! I did not pay it! The invoice did not reference my actual order. I called the number back, and ‘Adam’ answered. I inquired why the invoice did not reference my actual order items. His response, ‘We cannot disclose the actual shipment description on the invoice.’ Red flags all over this conversation! Scam!! Block this number.
