SUSPECTED SCAM!

Date11/30/2020
PseudonymJoe Doe
Scam contentsI received a package in the mail that we did not order. It appears to be a battery and 2 circuit boards. We looked up the part number on them and it's to a Touchless Thermometer. We did not order anything like this. It came from: Joe Doe, Suite 111, 1140 River Road, New Castle, DE 19720,
Not sure why we would receive something we didn't order but going to keep an eye on our bank and accounts just in case.

    Open Sky is a scam who is sending out old clothes and supporting JOe DOE with used, worn clothes with cat hair that I did not order either. Open Sky needs to be investigated for fraud and being in cohoots with a criminal. i am sending this garbage right back to JOE DoE suite 111 1140 River Road New Castle DE 19720. i am going to report the to the consumer protection as well. Open sky needs to be prosecuted

    I ordered Seresto flea collars from what appeared to be a legit website online and contacted seller because I never receive shipping information. I read that these collars from China were bad and I put 2 and 2 together. I contacted PayPal. Low and behold I got a package in the mail from this Joe Doe too and the same address as everyone else. Must be some kind of Chinses scam they are running

    Obviously, this is a scam with everyone receiving packages at roughly the same time. Watch your credit cards and your bank accounts closely.

    Just received an envelope from JOE DOE with the same Maryland address as above. I received a plastic cylinder taped up at both ends. This arrived USPS. USPS is complicit in this fraud since the return address is not legitimate. THE FBI NEEDS TO GET INVOLVED AND THE USPS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED TO FIND OUT WHY THEY ARE SHIPPING PACKAGES USING AN ILLICIT RETURN ADDRESS. If I go to the post office to ship a package, I must show photo ID of my address and YET no problem for criminals to run an enterprise though USPS.

    My fiancé and I just received a package at our doorstep from this JOE DOE place - a random Chinese looking teapot and sugar bowl from the same address everyone else here has mentioned in Delaware. I did some googling and found this page and all you guys here as well — and if you notice all of our comments are super recent - so this is definitely a recently active /currently ongoing scam. Has anyone figured out if this has anything to do with eBay directly? Has anyone seen fraudulent charges in their bank accounts? Suspicious activity? I don’t know exactly what to look out for but definitely feeling majorly uncomfortable that I’m targeted. So far no strange activity on either my eBay account nor my bank account that’s attached to the card I ... Read more

    Glad I found this I just got a package from same address and as far as I know we didn’t order anything other than orders placed that we already got. No idea what this is and I’m gonna throw away. Makes me nervous that someone is willing to pay postage on mailing packs to people they didn’t order there has to be some kind of point to it perhaps to cause harm I can’t think of any other reason. If anyone gets a crazy charge or worse or gets sick or something crazy please post!

    I received a cork screw/bottle opener yesterday...
    Sounds like a brushing scam: A seller acquires the actual name and address of a real e-commerce user and creates a fake account for them on the platform they’re selling on. They then make what appears to be an order of their product from the victim’s fake account, ship out a package that is either empty or contains a low-value, light weight item, and then, after the delivery has been confirmed, leaves a 5-star review to boost their rankings and attract more sales. To the platform and other users, these faux reviews appear to be from legitimate and verified sales. Beyond the benefit of favorable reviews, simply having additional sales is often enough to raise a product in the rankings of some e-commerce sites, such as Amazon... Read more

    I just received a Fanny pack that I never ordered. However, I did order a small treadmill from a Facebook ad back in December that was only $19.99. Figured it was too good to be true and I’m assuming this was tied to that because I never received it. What is going on?

    I just received an oven mitt that I did not order. Return address is the same as above, Joe Doe in New Castle, Delaware. The label underneath the USPS label shows a different tracking number. When I tracked this, the origin is Shenzen, China. This is very suspicious! I haven’t ordered anything recently except on Amazon. I ordered one item from EBay, but that was back in December. I’m definitely going to be wartching my bank accounts!

    I received an item... I don't know what it is... it is black satin on one side and beige on the other, with some kind of cotton strip covering a zipper. It is stuffed, similar to a pillow. Anyway, I did not order it. Once I opened it I went to the Joe Doe site... there is NOTHING there I would buy. I am confused. Haven't seen any money taken from credit/debit cards nor PayPal.

    After reading all these comments I am wondering if it is a "marketing ploy." I would have appreciated an zeroed-out invoice, and an explanation!! Wonder how many groups are discussing them right this minute. LOL
