iocu.us - Fake verification agency

Some of the electronics scam sites are using this site claiming to be "verified" by it:
"International-Organization-of-Consumers-Union" - http://www.iocu.us/
Enter for example "www.electalk.com" (common scam) and you get some crappy fake certificates.

The English on the site is horrible.

Thanks Daneel - Spread the word

Daneel,

Thank you for the "research" you did at iocu.us. I hope you do not mind but I copied your lists and gave you credit for the discovery here at <a href="http://www.chinaelectronic.info/?page_id=16">www.chinaelectronic.info</a>. My thought is the more we post these list on fraud exposing sites the more we can knock this business out. Please feel free to post more of these sites as you find them.

Sincerely
j

Complete list of sites "verified" by this fake service:

With a few exceptions like baidu.com (Chinese search engine), my own blog and "www.clownpenis.fart" (probably some other joker) these are likely all scams run by the same criminals. Many of the older ones are dead by now.
Here's one more that I'm embarrassed to say I almost (read almost) fell for today. Glad I was cautioned by Western Union on the odd divided / split payment for the full amount that was requested be paid that way by the website owner or rep (which is illegal according to WU). I'm also glad after receiving an email asking me to confirm their legitimacy as a legal business at iocu.us, that I found this forum while trying to research that verification website. I had to of course cancel the order after WU said that was illegal to split a payment to the same person like that and I'm thankful that happened and I had to cancel the order - or else I would have been duped!:eek:

www . palmyshop . com - Viral

Considering I would get almost immediate replies to emails concerning a pending order, it's pretty obvious it's a scam since I sent this email (text below), just before posting this here and no reply yet.

I regret to inform you that your website has been determined to be a scam and so is the fake verification website - www.iocu.us
Needless to say, you have been exposed, and your website had already been reported as well as the fake verification website you provided a link to. This is my last communication to you.

Scanning site with: Threat Log DETECTED

thebluesing,

Scam your PC.
Thx, :)
I'll check my McAFee scan and threat logs and scan my laptop as well as do a restore to a previous time before Thursday's first visit to site. Incidentally, no response to my last email indicating they've been exposed (both storefront and verification websites). No defense to this claim:

"We are legal company .we do business for five years . We buy goods directly from the producing compaany,and we have set up good cooperation relationship,thus all of our goods are at a very low price.we have customers all over the world. we ship our items to buyers everyday . We do business by honesty , you can check our shipping information by click the " send goods " in our web. After your items be sent , you will get your tracking number at the same day once your payment is confirmed . Then you can track your shipping information in shipping agency website and get your goods in 4 -6 days .http://palmyshop.com/sendgoods.asp
You may check the truth of our website by the official website www.iocu.us the wicpnumber is 1220117924."


I think you meant scan my PC right? I typo'd my user name myself when creating my account. It was supposed to be 'thebluesking'. Oh well. As long as I didn't get scammed, I'm happy to be known as the 'bluesing'. :D (probably some typos in my reply).

This thread deserves a more prominent place or maybe another warning thread on websites with no searchable real history or some other easily found search topic / query (like 'Before you buy from any website requiring Western Union or Moneygram for Payment'), that will lead people to your website. I didn't think to Google Anti-Fraud International or any combination of those words. I Googled the company name and found a couple things on Yahoo saying it was a scam and that was it, but two posts wasn't quite enough to deter me as some people might post a negative thing like that just for lack of something to do even if there was nothing of a history of praise or complaints about the company. What did the trick was the email directing me to the verification site that lead me to your site with a Google search.

Finding this post on your site on the verification website was what told me I escaped getting screwed out of $1,200.00!!!:eek: I know these sites are too good to be true and they take advantage of the holiday season. People like me might only find your website after it could be too late. If you have other search queries I can post about on my music websites let mem know so I can spread the word to others.

Wanted to give a thumbs up here, but don't know how to get that from the bottom smiley list.

thebluesing,

Scam your PC.
Nothing on my PC and no email issues. Just for s*%ts & grins, I copied some FedEx shipping numbers from the Palmyshp website and they show multiple package items delivered in weights as high as 38 lbs. so clearly they're delivering something to all these people. I wish I could talk to some of them and see what their experience was like and what they received vs what they ordered. Check it out:
