Type of a scam Tech Support
I received this unsolicited e mail. I receive a e mail just like this one every week and all have been a scam wanting me to accept payment of thousands over the total cost to pay the shipping company that they will add to the credit card payment. If you go to company website it states they have been in business since 2010 but ScamPulse.com states website went operational 10/2019. ScamPulse.com website states Vape Warehousing & Logistics does not have a license to operate in the state of Indiana. Why would a company operating in Indiana want to buy from a small business located in Florida and pay extra in shipping costs for a item they could just buy locally? When you do a google search of the address Vape Warehousing & Logistics is not listed as a tenant and there is nowhere to park or load the semi’s they claim to own and the building is not a warehouse. One of the tenants in the building is a computer services company but instead they choose to send a email unsolicited to a business 1500 miles away to purchase laptops. The company website shows pictures of trucks at a loading dock but none of the trucks have their logo on them. The website has testimonials that uses generic business titles not one actual names the company. The company lists Fed Ex, UPS, and post office as customers. Why would a company such as UPS and Fed Ex need a logistics company, they have their own planes and trucks? None of this makes sense and this is nothing more than a scam.
