Drivingpayuk.org www.drivingpay.org IS a scam
Drivingpayuk.org scam was ukdrivingpay.org scam but since the lowlife must have been getting well known as thieving pond life they have got themselves a new domain to rob the unsuspecting with.
Their is NO work, they have no drivers, no 'specialist' work that normal couriers don't know about and you won't learn tips to only pay a fraction of your insurance and road tax.
- Out to get your cash with nothing but 100% lies
- They just say they have work and to get your hands on a slice of it you have to pay an amount, currently £49
- Illegal use of webguard logos on their site which tells you they have been trading since 2002 yet a site that was put together only a few months ago?
- They quote globaldrivers.org as approving them but it is simply an advertising page set up by the scum to fool the unwary into believing this is a genuine opportunity. Link below but DO NOT click any of their links as this will put money in their pocket.
The low life have started calling around selling space on non existent wall planners and business directories for 2015.
These will usually phone you claiming to be producing a wall planner type publication that'll be sent to 10,000 businesses in your area etc etc and you can have a 4x4 box on it for £100 or whatever size/price they decide on. You pay up, they send you one or two wall planners as proof. These are usually the only wall planners with your details on that were and ever will be printed. You'll not get any work as the one in your office is unlikely to be seen by potential customers.
DO NOT get into a conversation with them, hang up immediately. There are many reports of people asking info which they translate into an order and you get an invoice through the post which gives you a headache you don't need. There is no wall planner / chart, it is purely a scam. If you get the call, hang up, no chatting, no questions. But of course, you are free to tell them what you think of them in clear terms.
Hendon' scam to take your cash directly from you
What to look out for
- collection or delivery on the street
- one off customer asking you to pay for something on their behalf
- change of delivery address once on route
- only a mobile number for contact
- oddly, people involved in scams like these tend to use surnames. e.g. 'Mr James', rather than 'Stuart'
A courier will receive a call from a person claiming to be from a big company like Marks and spencer, tesco, or similar needing an urgent collection and delivery of a small package. An address will be given for collection and a time agreed. shortly before collection another call will be made saying something like 'We'll have someone meet you on the corner of whatever street name as parking is bad etc and we don't want you getting held up, oh yeah and could you pay the person a sum of money for the item as we're having problems with electronic payment/paypal/ etc and we'll give you the cash as soon as you deliver to us.
Those that have been stung like this think it's ok, they've got the item and can hold it until paid for but on arrival at the destination either the address doesn't exist or nobody there knows anything about it and when the package is opened it would contain junk. The courier loses out on the job and the cash parted with in exchange for a worthless package

How they get you
This is quite a recent one. You get offered £2000 per month to put up to 8 signs on your vehicle. We'd heard about this one not long ago but were not 100% sure until they confirmed they were the same scum as courier-hub and simplysameday
The catch is, you have to pay £40 for their 'MTA Agent pack', so you lose the £40, likely never receive a welcome pack or guide on how to do it and certainly no £2000 a month for any ads. You may also be asked for £70 to pay for the signs, which again, don't exist and you will never see.
Lies from their site "In order to begin as a Moving Target agent you now have to purchase the pack which is a one off payment of £40.00. Our Guarantee. We offer a 30 day no quibble guarantee. If you are not happy with our product you have up to 30 days to claim a full refund. Simply return the pack to us and we will refund in full.
