I contacted someone is regards to an iPhone they were selling on Craigslist. The girl responded saying she had actually already sold it but she had another one she was selling. She send photos of iPhone and told me she had just moved to Canada so would post it to me. She then provided details of "My Parcel Delivery" who she said she had googled and was a third party who would hold her parcel until I sent my money to them and hold my money with them until I received the package she sent and once I confirmed the contents etc were correct would pass my money onto her. I made a money transfer to an agent "Jacob Marshall" of My Parcel Delivery. It turns out that the girl claiming to Emily Preston and Jacob Marshall had done this numbers times to many other people who paid them only not to receive the good that was promised.

  • Hi, I'm the CEO of - a legitimate and well known parcel delivery site in the UK.
    Recently, some people have been running a scam via Gumtree and craigslist - creating websites such as:
    (and a number of other extensions)
    With the intention of defrauding customers by pretending to sell iPads and requiring payment via Western Union.
    Our company - - is in NO WAY related to these scam websites with various prefixes. is a UK based courier comparison site and we do not sell ANY physical products or work with agents selling or arranging shipments of such products through our courier services. As a further note, we do NOT accept any form of payment through Western Union to a specific person. All payments on our website are through Paypal or recognized Credit / Debit cards.
    As soon as we have become aware of any such sites adverting through Craiglist, Gumtree or other such sites, we have immediately contacted the company hosting the fraudulent site and provided evidence to prove that people are illegally exploiting our branding and content and asked them to remove the offending website. To date, we have closed over 10 of these domains.

    We want to protect consumers from these scammers who are defrauding people and also tarnishing our good name by creating these fake sites. If anyone comes across any further sites of this nature, please contact us via and we will put all our efforts into shutting down these fraudulent sites.
