Quote:
Det Inspector Geoff Smith, from Durham Police, said: "We had a lady not far from here [Shildon] that was duped into receiving a lot of stolen goods - vanloads of camcorders, digital cameras.
"She had to send them off to criminals in Nigeria, so I'm not surprised by today's figures."


I would be interested to know more about the background of this case. Sounds like a mule. I wonder how she was 'duped'? Pretty piss poor reporting, not going into the detail to warn potential victims. The cop indirectly disses Nigeria without really warning anybody. Crying or Very sad

What has this got to do with 419? Probably nothing unless she is receiving fake checks in payment as well as passing stolen goods.

Yes, probably a reshipping mule scam, have a read of this about how reshipping scams work, see the full article here:

http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2005-07-10-cyber-mules-cover_x.htm

This is a short timeline of events from the article, showing how they use stolen credit cards:

Quote:
How a reshipment gets done

USA TODAY examined a paper trail of e-mails, letters, credit card statements, packing receipts and mailing labels that Karl kept of his work as a 'mule' and pieced together this account of an illegal reshipment:

April 18. Someone from a bogus Web site at the center of the scam, kflogistics.biz, tests a $1 charge on iWon.com, a prize-giveaway Web page, using a Bank One Visa credit card number stolen from Brian Spoutz, a 48-year-old San Jose, Calif., software salesman. A Visa investigator notified him about the compromised card in May, Spoutz says.

April 20. Kflogistics.biz uses Spoutz's Visa card to place an order at Newegg.com for a $2,607 digital camera and extra memory. It directs shipment of two separate parcels to a home in Gilroy, Calif.

April 22. FedEx attempts to deliver the parcels, but the reshipper in Gilroy has gotten cold feet and rejects the delivery. Using FedEx's online tracking, Michael Birman of kflogistics.biz notes the failed delivery, contacts FedEx and redirects delivery to Karl in Grass Valley, Calif. Birman then alerts Karl via e-mail to watch for the two parcels.

April 23. Birman goes to USPS.com. Using a hot credit card number, Birman purchases a $48 Global Express Mail shipping label addressed to Roman Radeckiy in Moscow, then downloads the new label as a JPEG image file. Birman attaches the JPEG file to an e-mail to Karl, instructing Karl to combine the two parcels into one box, affix the label and mail to Radeckiy.

April 24. FedEx delivers the parcels to Karl in Grass Valley.

April 27. Karl prints out the JPEG label. Karl repacks the camera and memory into one box, affixes the printed JPEG label and completes the reshipment.

We had a lady near me who got caught up this after a successful love scam by the lad. She was led to believe that she was doing legitimate business for the lad. Fake checks, stolen cc's from "clients" of his. Mad She got into a real jam and got arrested, the lad of course getting off scot-free.

Poor shipping mule lady has likely just started her tale of woe. Lots of women (seems to be mostly women as the scammers are largely male) fall in love with some guy on a dating site who tells her she's so beautiful and lovely and blah blah blah, being lonely, she responds. Next the guy asks a simple favour (reshipping) blaming local import duties/rules/lies, and surely he'd never con the love of his life? She's left handling stolen goods and heartbroken and humiliated, and some fucker struts around with a new Rolex showing off how clever and cool he is. Beneath contempt.

Or maybe she's 'lucky' and 'just' applied for a 'job' and became a shipping mule instead of cheque mule.

Sick greedy arrogant bastards, knowing no shame and clearly not having respect beaten into them by their elders and peers. Makes my blood boil, can you tell?

The said article pointed out that a huge 25% of all online credit card transactions in the UK were fraudulent, that is just massive!

I'd take that 25% with a pinch of salt, Fraud claims also include section 75 claims, Which people claim for such stupid things.

25% sounds unlikely - surely no vendor would accept cards online if they lost money on 25% of transactions? I know I sure as heck wouldn't!
