Dear Leslie (Hay Barn),
This is very important, we have recently been contacted by someone
using the name Laxix Osehon who found our ad on your website. He
ordered 7 tons of hay via email. Never once did he call, but simply
placed the order via email and sent $4850 in a cashiers check to us.
The check cleared with no problem. He asked us to deduct $2860 and
Western Union it to his "shippers accountant" in Manhatten New York
by the name of Patrick Inyan. His shipper goes by the name of Mr. Carre
and he did call us once asking where his money was and that he wanted
it that day. We told him the check had to clear the bank first.
Then one day before his shipper was supposed to arrive here in Iowa,
Mr. Osehon asked us to send $1,000 to Patrick Inyan once again because
the shipper was requesting this additional amount in order to pick up
the hay. He asked us to take this amount out of our personal account
and explained to us that the shipper would reimburse us when he arrived
to pick up the order.
When we professionally refused to do this, Mr. Osehon explained if we
could not, he would need a complete refund. We offered to deliver
the hay ourselves and save him the $1,000 but he is so far refusing
this as well.
The entire ordeal has been beyond strange and we simply wish to warn
you and your advertisers of a very possible and serious scam.
