ALCO SAFE TRANSACTONS
THIS IS A COMPLETE FRAUD AND SCAM. THEY WILL SCAM YOU OUT OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND NEVER DELIVER THE PRODUCT. THE ONLY WAY OF CONTACTING THEM IS BY EMAIL WHICH THEY ONLY REPLY WITH FORM EMAILS SAYING THEY NEVER RECIEVED THE MONEY,
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THEM. THEY USE A BANK IN UK CALLED BARCLAY'S. YOU WILL HAVE PROOF OF PAYMENT AND THEY WILL SAY THEY NEVER RECIEVED THE MONEY.
THEY ARE A COMPLETE SCAM. THEIR WEB REVIEWS ARE WRITTEN BY THEM AND THERE ARE ALOT OF THEM. THE SELLERS ARE ALSO PART OF THE SCAM. WE WERE DEALING WITH A JILL JENSEN IN VICTORIA, BC AND THATS PART OF THE SCAM.
THIS IS TRULY WHAT HAPPENED TO ME 2 WEEKS AGO. SENT MONEY AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY CONTACT FROM THEM REGARDING ANYTHING WHATSOEVER. ITS A FRAUD. PLEASE DON'T THROW YOUR MONEY AWAY LIKE I DID.

Beware. This is a fraudulent website designed to scam unsuspecting Craigslist shoppers out of money. It posts fake Craigslist postings designed from legitimate Craiglist postings to lure potential buyers into inquiring about purchasing the item. Posing as a seller the website owner (who is as much of a thief as someone who picks your pocket) will tell the buyer that the listing transaction is being completed through AST (Alco Safe Transactions). The individual will obligingly explain the process in which Alco Safe Transactions will accept payment from the seller into an escrow account at a bank. It will always be a foreign bank (eg. Barclays Bank in United Kingdom) and it will always require an international wire transfer of the money, which cannot be reversed. The buyer will be told that that a foreign bank must be utilized because no domestic bank accounts are available for use. Subsequent to completion of the wire transfer emails to both Alco Safe Transactions and the seller will go unanswered. You are simply left with a smaller bank account. There is no corporate headquarters. The 1437 West 190th Street, Gardena, CA address is a Public Storage (PS) facility and the 1411 West 190th Street, Gardena, CA address is a Toyota Plaza facility. The webpage “About Us” was copied from the Postal Connections webpage “About Us.” The photos and bios are the same. The names have been changed. This can be verified by going to the Postal Connections website. The scammer has a previous website eznettransactions.com which was also designed to defraud potential buyers. DO NOT let the sophistication of the website and its links fool you. It is a fraudulent site.

11 Days Since Payment Sent and No Response from Alco or Seller!!!!!
It has been 11 days since we sent our $2700 payment for a jetski and have not hear one word from either the seller or Alco Safe Transactions. We have sent several emails and faxes with no repsonse. They do not offer telephone numbers so there was no way to reach them via phone. If I do not hear from them in two days I will be contacting the proper authorities and posting EVERYWHERE that it is a scam and a fraud. We did our research before we did this, read the reviews, but failed to notice that on all the sites, all the reviewers only had one review!!!
