I placed a winning bid on e-bay for "Two Massive Ivory Tusks". I received the usual e-mail from the seller (a company called VACO CO) It instructed me to send a cashiers check or moneyorder to what turned out to be a "middleperson" hired from the Business post web-site (Peter Gaynor/Cindy Perlman).
I sent the funds (cashiers check) to a Lydia A. Jackson (middleperson). I didn't receive the tusks. After researching her phone number, I contacted Lydia A Jackson who explained she knew nothing about the tusks. She claimed she was hired for a "work-at-home" job by Peter Gaynor via the Business Post web-site. It turns out the "middleperson" gets ripped-off also.
My cashiers check was cashed and the funds wired to St. Petersburg Russia to a Rostislav Vashakmadze. Lydia A. Jackson FAXed me 60 pages of information from correspondence with Peter Gaynor with names and addresses of operitives in Russia.
I also traced the source of the e-mails sent to me from VACO CO. They use a business that rents computers by the hour. The business they use is: Everyones Internet, Inc. 2600 Southwest Freeway Suite 500 Houston, TX 77098 USA. Latitude: 32.7451 Longitude: -97.3297 Owner of IP Address: Williams, Randy, 1-713-400-5400 [email protected]
. There is also a FAX number the criminals use: 775-806-1726; it is a Nevada area code but a search of the number references a Cindy Perlman at 111 East 85th Street, New York, NY, United States 10028. Here are the names and info of the scam "players" I have so far:
