TNT Wolverhampton Depot / fraud
If I google the address earlier, I had not be cheated by Arianna Barnett (barnett.[protected]@hotmail.com)!
I saw an ad in graiglist for a 15" MacBook Pro, with 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 2 Gb memory, 220 Gb HD for $300 USD. She said:
I won't return home so soon. I'll have to send it to you from here.
I found a way to sell you the laptop that will cover the both of us. It's a worldwide delivery company called TNT. They have a service that will allow you to test the laptop before I receive my payment.
Please go to the TNT website below and read their procedure so we can be on the same page:
I will pay the TNT shipping fee.
I replied her and agreed for the deal. And then I got an email from TNT with very detailed inspection for this apple book and wire transfer info:
Pay to: name of TNT Agent ( only First Name, Last Name: Maurice Stirling )
Payout location: Wolverhampton, United Kingdom
214 Bowery Street
Manager: Robert Kay
Email: email [protected]@ukship-tnt.com
After I wired the money from Westen Union, I got an email with the TNT shipping info:
Important TNT Payment Instructions/Shipment Details
Please read the Instructions carefully.
Reference Number: *[protected]*

Again, I forget to check the real TNT website. It looked everything fine so far.
Until the shipping day come (5/8/10)and of course nothing come, then I realized something wrong!
So regret that I did not check their info in Google first.
And then I found this website and they had done this since 2 years ago (maybe even long time ago)
I hope UK & US police will investigate this fraud ASAP, so that no one lost their money again.
