This has scam written all over it.

This IS a UK company, but they are listed as scammers all over the internet. They even allegedly set up a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ Royal Mail website.

http://www.trirdpaty-royalmail.safe-rm.com

They do not take credit card payments and want Western Union. Big surprise!

After your first order, you SUPPOSEDLY have an unlimited credit line with them. No company could legitimately offer this.

Their website is registered in Melbourne, AU and they are located in the UK, but their prices are quoted in US Dollars. Not British Pounds or Euros.

On one website they are listed as buyers of used oils for biofuel:
Rightagentuk,Ltd. - CrudeoilsRefined, SunflowerOil, CrudePalmOil, vegOil

I looked at the REAL Royal Mail website, and they do not appear to offer any type of escrow service. They DO have warehousing and logistics for business operations, but I found nothing about them guaranteeing transactions between buyers and sellers or checking and verifying merchandise.

This is from the REAL Royal Mail website:

http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/j...diaId=64100708

Fraudulent payments

Royal Mail does not handle cash on behalf of 3rd parties. If you are instructed by any 3rd party websites or contacted by e-mail to make a payment via Western Union money transfer to a Royal Mail account or agent, DO NOT make the payment. Contact Customer Services or call us on 08457 740 740.

A few other things...

It is entirely possible that RIGHTAGENT UK LIMITED, which is registered with the British government is legitimate and has no idea their information is being used in this manner.

Apple is not conducting fire-sales on their products, especially not the iPhone.

Nobody could sell a big screen TV for $600 and offer free shipping to the US.

The OP's instinct was correct. If anyone contacts you offering name brand products at super low prices, they are either counterfeit or they do not exist. In this particular case, I'm guessing they do not exist.

Same companies not only tell you to use Western Union but also ffer Moneygram and "Secure Bank Transfer". Please note that there is nothing "secure" about a bank transfer. Money goes out overseas = virtually dead. You won't get much police help unless you are a bigshot or you are dealing with money that is important for the government.

Be careful.

But they DO care!!!!

The thing is, they know it is said that it is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich person to get into heaven.

So, really, there just looking out for your eternal well-being by stealing your money.
