Old news, but frankly I’m getting bored from all these scams, so I would like to spread the word. Hopefully someone that perhaps live near them, will go to pay a visit and beat the living crap out of those “people”.

Got a letter in the mail today from a company called “Online Business Registration” regarding the renewal of the business name. I know what you are thinking.. Online and they use the normal mail?? Yeah, I know, that was the first bell ringing..

Gosh, the temptation to send a letter is so strong, but to which address? Victoria in Victoria or Victoria in NSW?..

Ok a quick Google search reveal that 37/336 Murnong St is a:

 

Ok lets try the Suite SZ1111 in Cherrybrook NSW 2126.

Oh, wait. Those silly dumb ass forgot to put the building name and put instead a PO Box number… Idiots!! Why would you need a Suite number when you already have a PO Box number. It actually turned out that they do need a suite number because the PO Box 775 they are using, actually belong to another company called Aussie Mailman, and you guess it, they are a delivery mail company. Is this suspicious? By the way the SZ1111 is not a suite number either but the actual customer number given to them from Aussie Mailman..

Now, I don’t know if this Aussie Mailman is involved in the scam as well, but at least they have a mobile number listed… So it seems that I can reach Victoria either in Victoria at the Indian restaurant or in NSW because of the purposely missing building name in her letter..

Calling the number 1300 651 752 also didn’t help because the Nigerian lady on the other end had no idea of why she answered the phone in the first place as her English Creole mixed with a pinch of Yoruba, made the monologue quite interesting..

“Sorry Victoria, I did try my best to get in touch with you, but it seems you don’t want to be found, and I don’t feel like eating Indian tonight”
