How to Spot a Delivery Scam:

  • Legitimate, established courier companies do not use What’s App to communicate with their customers. We communicate via phone or email. Our email address will always have our domain in the address.
  • Check the spelling of their domain on their website. Fraudulent courier companies often have an extra letter or a missing letter in their name to look like an established courier. (ie: Golld Rush Express, Gold Rush Exxpress, Gold Rush Expresss, etc.
  • Check their address. Some companies are known to use our address to look like a legitimate company. Our address is now only listed on our My Google Business Page.
  • What area code are they using? Their area code should match their address, although beware that a number with a correct area code can be created using Google Voice or other communication apps.
  • If someone you met online is sending you a gift, you should not be asked to pay any money to receive the gift.
  • If you have received pictures of the items that were sent, do an image search for the same picture to see if the picture was found online.
  • If you are selling something online and someone has offered to pay more than the item is worth so you can pay the shipping company, this is a red flag. There is no shipping company and you will lose money. Any check that is sent to you will be a fraudulent check.

If you think you are a victim of fraud, but are not sure, feel free to give us a call and we will help you. We want to help everyone we can from becoming victims of shipping scams. More info on actual reported scams below.

 

MULTIPLE INCIDENTS WORLDWIDE!!!

Web Site Duplicated! Reported 12/20/19

There is another web site at the address of www.goldrushexpressdelivery.com that has stolen our information and is posing as us! This is not us and we are not affiliated with this site in any way. Our correct address is www.goldrushexpress.com. Please do not give them any money or provide any personal information. We have reported them in multiple ways and are trying to get their site taken down. Please email Management@goldrushexpress.com if you would like to notify us of your interaction with them.

2nd INCIDENT: Reported 4/18/19

Scammer is now preying on people in the US. Using our name as “Goldrush Express” and a very similar web address (just missing the “e” in express). Using the email DSSDimplomaticshipment@gmail.com. Asking the victim to pay $7500 in order to pay the duties for the international shipment. Please be cautious when meeting people online especially from another country. Do not accept any gifts and if you are asked to pay for the gift in order to receive it, it is surely a scam and you should report them to the FBI.

1st INCIDENT :  Reported 3/4/19

Please be aware that there is a company known as “Golf Courier Agency” is using our address to try and intimidate people into paying expensive delivery charges. They say that a package has arrived at a near by airport and “you” will need to pay $400 (in this case) for them to deliver the item to you. They provide this shipper’s invoice to help legitimize their scam. Please be cautious with any email you receive saying you owe money for a delivery. Research the company contacting you. Companies with a gmail account is one red flag. No phone number listed is another. We are thankful to this person for being suspicious and researching the company. They did not find a Golf Courier Agency but did find our company by searching the address.

The “company” requested a Money Gram sent to the below contact:
