The Beaverton email scam

If you have received any emails with the following address in the email - beware. The emails are probably scams.
14525 SW Millikan #11450
Beaverton, Oregon 97005-2343

The address is a mail drop operated by a Seattle company. They offer mail boxes and electronic mail forwarding to companies that are typically outside of the USA.

There is currently a law enforcement investigation going on and has been for almost 2 years now. Here is the link to the news story that appeared in the Beaverton Valley News in Aug. 2007. What prompted this blog post was the fact that I received an email this morning stating I have a check waiting for me with no information except the address. Here is the email -

You may have a check pending.

Me back now. If you don't know the sender then just Google the email address or any information in the email first. Don't become a victim.

Just got an email from this address...they are still in business, I see.

Apparently they are still at it, since I get lots of traffic on this blog post. That tells me people are still looking up that address.

Ha ha, Yeah, I just got this message this morning. Only it was a message saying "let me know if you like this" But it had that same address at the end of the message to send them a letter and a link. I went to another browser and looked up the link and sure enough it was a scam trying to get me to send money to make money. ha ha. If I want to create a business I'll create a business. Not a scam. I send them a nasty message with about a hundred cuss words in it. ha ha. Then unsubscribed even though I had never subscribed in the first place. Then I spammed it. I know it won't be the last of them. I hope that the company that allows this type of behavior to occur in their name gets into some trouble over it. It shouldn't be legal to use a rented mailing address. It shouldn't be legal to rent a mailing address. If it is legal then I just found my new business. Mailbox rental.

I got an e-mail today from someone with the same uncommon last name as myself. I thought it was kinda fishy so I did a search on the Beaverton, OR. mailing address. Glad I did! Thanks for the blog.
