Western Union + Cash = RUN!!!!

Total Scam.

There's no such thing as "Express Trust Shipping Co."

Ryan, They got it all wrong. They send you money. Wait the 5 or seven days to clear then proceed.

It looks a lot like a form letter. What breakage can there be in banners?

Ryan - the only way to accept his order is when he wire transfers the correct amount into your account. At that point you cna ship the banners freight collect. We get this kind of stuff everyday at the office. DON'T ACCEPT ORDER WITHOUT PAYMENT UP FRONT.

Get the auth on the card. Then call visa for a verbal confirmation. They can call the customer and confirm it's him and not a scam.

I had a buddy who was in a simliar situation, the credit card cleared with no problem...he shipped the merchandise then the charge was contested...he never got the money or the merchandise back.

CASH IN HAND FIRST.

We've had similar requests for parts and equipment all of them have been scam's and have wanted equipment shipped out overnight. We always check them out with D&B and see if the Credit Card is even a valid one before starting a transaction. There are too many scammer's out there in the cyberworld these days...
