Friendly Reminder┃Do Your Due Diligence Before Accepting That Next Order–No Matter How Good It Looks ► http://ppai.us/23sIKBg #FraudAlert

Earlier today I had an email exchange with an alleged scammer (“Matt”) who wanted to buy 7,500 flash drives and various other electronic products. He had no idea that PPAI doesn’t make or sell promotional products. He said he got my name from “a promotional list.’ Having heard of a few recent scams, I decided to play along.

During my exchange, I did a little research and found the business to be non-existent, the shipping address to be an abandoned house in another city (thank you Google Maps) and no chance of verifying a credit card prior to accepting the order. Needless to say, when the interrogation continued, Matt quietly backed out of the deal.

Let this be a reminder that in business (as in life) there are people who will prey on those less informed (or maybe a bit too motivated to close a deal). With more and more business being conducted online, it is increasingly important that you pay attention and do whatever due diligence is necessary to make sure the people you are doing business with are who they say they are.
