This I plan to do I am giving him/her 1 day and then I will follow though on all actions I told them

Thanks
JAy


BTW Mel I really do appreciate the help I just want to make sure ( if he gave the wrong addess then the person at that addy may know them)

Okay this is what I did. I called the # listed for the company (I have unlimited long distance) and spoke with the owner which answered the phone. They told me that their address is 1118 Lancaster Drive Suite #342. They also said that their address used to be 981 Hoffman Rd. NE which was a home business. I asked if the said person
Carrie Hortt worked for them. They told me she used to. They asked me what it was about and I told them that there may be an internet scam going on to that physical address. They said it is a vacant home in which they own. It still does not explain how there was a signature confirmation.

They further told me that Carrie was in a very bad car accident recently. Unfortunately I could not block my phone # because they have a restriction on their phone that would not let me get through that way so that person does have my phone # but promised not to give it to her. I hope I do not get harrassed now
Anyways I tought I would try to help and this is what i found out for you guys.

Mel

Mel you should have been a Private Investigator (mind you it gets really boring following people with a video camera)



Thanks for all you help

Now at least we know that Carrie Fort is a real person (unless the person who answered was the scammer, but probably not)

Regardless of the severe accident or not I have had 5 people now respond to me that they got nothing and some went back up to 3 months ago.

I appreciate everything you have done

Cheers
Jay

Way to go Jay and good work Mel. I still haven't heard from her when I asked for her address the other day. I don't think she gave it to me before.

Question

Doesn't anyone else think it odd that the address is for "Encore Entertainment"? And she's using a vacant home address to receive packages?

I'm not holding my breath on this one. None of this smells right to me. (The accident ploy has been used once too often among bad traders.)

Have those affected by Carrie done some sort of check to see if she's had any good trading experiences?

Speaking from personal experience, it is sad that traders are more apt to attack traders that are down than defend those in need of a good word.

Jay, please let us know how this turns out.

If this is any help, I figured if the alleged automobile accident Carrie Hortt was in was severe, it would probably have been reported in the newspaper. I ran a search in the Statesman Journal newspaper (Salem, Oregon) for all articles containing "Hortt", and came up with 2 articles. Nothing since 2002. Go to the newspaper's website at:

http://www.statesmanjournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/frontpage

At the top of the page is a search box. Type in "Hortt" and select "all articles" from the drop down menu.

I have traded with carrie hortt before over on tv-show-tape-trade - she did send me my stuff (well most of it), but not all of it. This is the address that was on the bubble mailer she sent me:

Carrie Hortt
4647 Swegle Rd NE
Salem, OR 97301-2015

Carrie Fort's coming to the defense of Carrie Hortt. She has not been doing her homework, I don't think.

They also can't spell and you would think they would have enough sense to use a different name not even close to Fort lol

Maybe the accident is legit but so is the scammer as this has gone on long before the recent "accident"

Mel you definately scared the crap out of her by calling Encore, lets hope that she is scared enough to pay back the 5 (or more) people she owes

I wish we could catch all scammers this early

Well

I t looks like we definately nailed a new scammer as I was contacted by 1 more person who was scammed and on the Yahoo forum another member is asking her where his 80 cd's are. I am glad we caught this person before she became a larger nuisance. Frankly I do not care any more about the 13 dvds as long as she does not get to scam any other people.
