Complaint Review: Inch 3 Ads Inc.
Inch 3 Ads Inc. - Margerete Lummer - Michael Gehr - Michael - Pipolo - Marko Gjalaj, and Adina Hertanu Theft by deception Bielefeld, Germany
This company contacted me about advertising. (I own an ad agency.). I was a bit skeptical about it since I found out they are based out of Germany. After a month or so I received a check from them for $3215.00. I called the bank it was drawn on, "Astoria Federal Savings and Loan" based at Lake Success NY. The check was funded "GOOD", so I deposited the check and followed these directions:
First you must cash the $3,215 certified check at your bank, same day you receive it. Then, deduct your commission $400 and send $2,665 to company we specified, the rest of $150 is the transfer fee.
Detailed instructions: If you have a Credit Card or Debit Card issued by banks in USA, you may pay by Western Union online or calling toll free phone number 1-800 Call Cash (1-800-225-5227) and one operator will assist you. Or you can go personally to one agent from your town. If you don't have Credit Card or Debit Card use method below.
Step 1. Locate the nearest Western Union office from your town in banks, big stores or travel agencies.
Step 2. From the Agent clerk, obtain a money transfer form and show them your identification card. They will help you with the application. Here is receiver information:
Receiver's First Name: ADINA
Receiver's Last Name: HERTANU
City: Vienna Zip: 1030
Country: Austria (careful, not Australia)
Step 3. Give the Agent clerk the filled-up form, specify you want MONEY IN MINUTES method, cash and sign the receipt. If you transfer from home using your phone the agent will confirm the info.
Step 4. When done, a Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN)** will be provided. E-mail us back the following information:
Sender's First Name and Last Name:
City, State, Zip:
Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN):
Exact Total of Amount Sent (USD):
Receiver's First Name and Last Name:
**The Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) is a reference number used to by the payer and the recipient for tracking and collection of the transfer made.
After doing this they removed the money from thier account and took the money I sent. I THOUGHT I was being careful, I THOUGHT WRONG!!! I had contacted them several time before this had happened, both US and Germany look below:
