Beware:We urge all Tradeloop members to verify company information when a Tradeloop member contacts you to set up a deal. A few minutes of due diligence can save hours of frustration. For example, this fraud attempt contained two red flags:
A person posing as Mike Metelitsa, of Keystone Memory Group is
trying to purchase equipment from people using the employee and
company's name, but bogus email address and phone number.
View the details here:
- An inaccurate phone number: The phone number is a toll-free number that is different from the number posted in Keystone's member profile and on the company's Web site.
- Suspicious email address: The fraudster used an email address hosted at Earthlink.net, instead of KeystoneMemoryGroup.com. There's no reason for a Keystone employee to be using an email not associated with the company.
