Apparently, they've run this scam before as It is also currently running as and  They have a fully operational website that states they sell and ship to anywhere without prescription, or even if not legal in your state. Just like any other online merchant, you then add to your cart. Instead of paying at checkout, you get an email stating you have to pay through WesternUnion or MoneyGram and since even legal stores don't have good access to banking, so it seems reasonable. They even go as far to send you a tracking number to their other partner in the scam, the shipping company, Reliable Priority Express Delivery. 

Checking the tracking number gives a delivery date a couple of day in the future.  On the day you're expecting delivery, you get an email from the "shipper" stating your package needs to be "insured" for $500, but you'll get 98% of it back upon delivery. You then get insurance on any future deliveries without having to "buy" additional insurance.  Isn't that so nice of them?

That's when you know you were scammed.  There is nothing listed on the website about needing insurance. There is a detailed FAQ section that explains your shipping options, and wouldn't you know it? Reliable Priority Express Delivery isn't even mentioned as a shipper, although USPS, UPS, and FedEx are.  And wouldn't you know it, they only take WesternUnion or MoneyGram as payment too. They haven't even bothered to change the name of the "shipper" contacting you for the insurance part of the scam. Another user that was scammed by these same people posted the email he received from RPED, and although they changed the wording somewhat, it was still signed by Daniel Shaw; the exact name from the email I received.  The email I received from the same "Daniel Shaw" is posted below.  Note the phone number listed for the shipper. It is a Minnesota exchange for a business that is supposedly in Maryland?  Also to note, the fake shipper's website has no active links at the bottom of the page. 

Welcome to Reliable Priority Express SERVICES! one of the world's fast, effective and easy means to transport your goods.

Dear Client,  (even though they have my name and address)
Use the Booking Numbers "BogusShippingNumberHere" to check the status of the shipment or delivery at

We wish to inform you that your consignment must be INSURED before we can proceed with shipment and delivery. The content of the package happens to be "DISCREET" and we need to be as discreet as possible.
According to our policies which states that:
All Items/Commodities And All Conditions:
Used And New Shipped  Across States must be Insured and custom charges paid.

Reasons to Insure With Us:
Full Replacement value, not depreciated cash value. Multiple
Coverage options: Catastrophic, Basic Risk and All Risk.
Your Freight insurance coverage placed will be Primary not Contingent:
Most of our competitors offer "Contingent freight insurance" which is coverage that is contingent upon the carriers liability and their terms and conditions.

It's secondary insurance and it will only cover you if your claim is denied by the carrier. If the carrier accepts your claim, then you will receive their limited freight liability coverage which pays based on the weight of your shipment,not it's full value, usually around $0.50-0.60 cents per lb. In addition, they don't cover high risk items, or high valued items.
If you want full coverage for the full declared value of your shipment, regardless of the carrier's terms, then primary coverage is the answer. Our Primary coverage is replacement cost coverage for the full declared value of the items and is in excess to the liability of the carrier; meaning our insurance coverage will come first. Don't leave it up to the carrier to decide your coverage. You want full protection of your shipment with primary freight insurance. Coverage is provided direct from insurers with the highest industry ratings for Financial Strength and claims payment. A with AM Best and A+ with Standard and Poor's.

No Hassle, Fast and Easy Claims Processing:
The benefit of being protected by a top rated insurer, is that you can rest assured that they can pay for your loss. Our Insurer has the highest possible industry ratings for financial strength and claims payment handling. We help expedite the process by immediately submitting your claim direct to the claims dept. and keeping track of it, to make sure you're taken care of.
Our Friendly Service:
Exceptional customer service is our goal and our friendly insurance agents practice it every day. We are always here to answer your questions and help assist you with yourinsurance needs.
Full Replacement value, not depreciated cash value. Multiple Coverage options: Catastrophic, Basic Risk and All Risk.

You will have to pay a refundable Cargo Insurance of 500 USD . This Cargo Insurance is 98% REFUNDABLE upon delivery of your consignment. 98% of the CargoInsurance will be refunded upon delivery of your consignment. The sum of 490 USD will be refunded to you by the delivery agent.
This Refundable Cargo Insurance is valid for 12 months, as such you can ship other items using this same coverage for a period of 12 months.

Mr. Daniel Shaw

The shipping email exposes the scam leaving no doubt. There are also signs on the website that they're not legit (besides the fact the whole thing is not legal) if you bother to look close enough. The last paragraph at the bottom of their homepage speaks volumes. 

It appears the weed websites these lowlifes use are constantly changing as they get shut down, but the shipping company has stayed the same. Be on the lookout, and warn anyone you know of this scam. They got me for a few bills, but luckily, I have a disposable income.  These a*s clowns could end up taking someone that doesn't, however, and is depending on this as medicine. I'd hate to see someone scammed that really couldn't afford to be.
