Peter Gaynor and Glushenko Stepan Sergeevich (business-post.net) rip-off! This work at home scam resulted in police raiding my house, and my name in news! Internet
*Consumer Comment: Another name tied to Peter Gaynor
Like the girl in the report that thought she was just taking on a work at home job as a 3rd party shipper, I have been scammed as well... ONLY WORSE!!! A large police task force arrived at my house a week ago WITH A SEARCH WARRENT. They said they were investigating credit card fraud and identity fraud and were led to me, because one of the items purchased was a PC from Wal-Mart, sent to my house, in my name. It was purchased from a stolen card number from a resident IN THE SAME TOWN AS I (Kingman, AZ).
I had just barely started this job. Peters "company" supposedly take on the role as a type of broker for people overseas who want to buy items from companies who do not ship out of the U.S. (i.e. Wal-Mart). They then have the company ship the item to a third party (me) and I am suppose to re-package it and send it on to the out-of-U.S. customer. I had so far, up to that
wonderful day with the police, shipped out 7 packages to Russia, but packages 8, 9, and 10 had just arrived. (via UPS).
A detective then took me to the police station while others conducted a search looking for anything related to the case. This wasn't much in my case, as all my correspondence was via email with Peter Gaynor on my laptop. Police took my laptop, my daughter's computer, my other daughter's digital camera, the 3 new packages I had just received, and various post office receipts etc. that I had from sending out the other 7 packages.
I am questioned thoroughly and asked if I'd be willing to take a LIE DETECTOR TEST. I responded "HECK YES!" I was not treated rudely, but I was treated as if I knew more than I would say and as if I was a part of this. The detective wanted to know why my name would be on the package... huh???! If it is being shipped to a third party and I am the 3rd party than why would it NOT be addressed to me? I explained to the detective that I was not aware at all, before a package arrives, that it would
come addressed to me, where it would come from, what it would be or where it would go until I actually received it at my door. All I would get would be an email from "Peter" saying that I would be receiving a parcel with the tracking # of "such-n-such" and to let him know when it has arrived. I would do so. Peter would than tell me where to send it. I would do so, then
I would get the new track number and email it back to Peter.
Another perp in this is a Russian by the name of Glushenko Stepan Sergeevich. This guy sent me multiple western unions of cash so that I could ship these items out. His name is printed on the receipts.
IT GETS WORSE.
I am told by Peter, just a few days before the police come that I will be receiving some money orders via my mail box and to let him know when they arrive. I didn't really think much of it. Days later on the weekend after the cops raided my house,I get three money orders and a personal check totaling close to $3,000. They were all addressed to me, and written out to me. I instantly got a very bad feeling about it. They were for the purchase of valuable coins from ebay. The buyers had FORTUNATELY
included a copy of their transaction email to the seller with their payment, with the exception of one of them who didn't have their email included, only the email of the seller (one "seller" used "firstname.lastname@example.org" for three of these transactions, three different buyers).
HERE IS THE CLENCHER! The buyer thinks I am the seller. The reason I was suspicious right away was because I didn't get why the buyer would send out payment to a 3rd party if all they had to do was send their payment to the seller. I did not know yet that the buyer thinks the seller is ME!
SO NOW in comes YOUR WEB SITE! I decide to go to the business-post.net site because now several days have passed since I have heard from Peter, and I am wondering if he has been raided as well. I think he is in Reno, NV. and I am use to emailing with him continuously everyday. LO AND BEHOLD his web site company does not come up. I do a search and find your report. I have a COW!
I decide to email the people who sent money and explain what is happening. Three quickly respond, very relieved to know I have their checks and have no intention of cashing them. The 4th I have not located yet (note: I did locate him a few days later and contacted him).
THEN, two of the four contact the email address that was used by the "seller." (no one had my email address until I actually emailed the buyers). They (buyers) email me back AND GUESS WHAT?!! The "sellers" (both different names and emails), tell them that they wanted the money mailed HERE (my home, to me) because I AM THEIR GIRLFRIEND AND THEY ARE ON VACATION AT
IT GETS EVEN WORSE!
The next day, a family friend contacts me and says that on a local radio station a news blurb reported that the home of Sherry and John "B.....," of Kingman, was served a search warrant and raided by various law enforcement agencies in an on-going investigation for involvement in an international stolen-identity-theft ring!!!! I, by-the-way, am the Sherry half of the Sherry and John "B....." of Kingman. This was announced without ANY reguard what-so-ever as to how accurate the info was or not, or about the huge invasion and victimization already enforced upon us!! Then another friend calls, and another...
Monday comes and I called and told the detective about the checks being sent to me as well as me, contacting buyers, to let them know everything. This was BEFORE the news blurb. The detective ask if I made copies of all of the transactions of email with other victims and anything else I found out and I tell him I sure as heck did. He wants me to call him back in a week because he is going on vacation! They still have not returned my property which I use for all my work related contacts.
THEN... Yesterday, about a week after I get "raided," when I got home from picking up my husband at his work, there was a stat-icky message on my voice mail from PETER GAYNOR...! His accent was so thick, I could not get most of what he was saying but I caught something having to do with a package and to please
SO NOW COMES THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND and I think that the 4th check I received over the last weekend was the end of it all as far as anymore transactions, and I get ANOTHER CHECK, FOR $900.00. I can barely bring myself to open it. My husband immediately calls the gentleman who wrote it to me, who, by the strangest co-incidence, had just gotten off the phone with the sharrif of our county to report me for fraud.... Oh, dear Lord I thought... I can't take more police. This gentleman is the nicest guy, by the way, and I had called him to let him know what was going on, and that I had no intention of cashing his check. I called the officer. He came and heard my story and picked up the check and let the latest victim (well, almost victim!), know he had it and would send it back.
BY-THE-WAY... The perps must know by now that I am here either sitting on their money, or I have cashed it all and kept it. One of the other "almost buyers" told me that even after telling the fake "seller" that the cops had been contacted, the seller still tried to get this buyer to buy the coins!
BEWARE! I have now been treated as a criminal, had my name as one on the radio and been victimized by Gaynor and his gang. Gaynor, in the mean-time, continues to still operate as if nothing has happened at all! You can go to one of his sites right now and apply for a job!
