Glassdoor - glassdors.com

Glassdoor is a website where current and former employees anonymously review companies, founded in 2007.

The fraudsters decided to use a spoof for promoting the same fake escrow company:

Some of the "reviews":

February 4, 2020
No opinion of CEO
I like the fact that they provide both the company and the driver contact information once the shipment has been dispatched. It makes the coordination on both ends a lot better. No complaints on the process from start to finish.

January 24, 2020
VTE Automotive Cargo
"Great service!"
No opinion of CEO
I researched many companies that transport cars before I finally decided on VTE Logistics. They had a reputable reputation with the BBB (excellent rating) and great customer service. They kept me well informed with email quotes, phones calls and texts. The driver came to pick up the car on the day they stated (he was here right on the time he said), Drivers was really nice and courteous.


The fake VTE Automotive was registered on May 27. Still, their "happy clients" dealt with the "company" before it was even active.

There is no mention of any VTE Logistics on the BBB website...

Report the case to the police as soon as possible.

Contact your bank and report for fraud the bank account used to receive your money. Also ask your bank to contact the receiver bank about that bank account.

Your bank can tell you if there is any chance for you to recover the money you lost.

Without reporting, there is no chance to recover anything.

Try please to forward to my email address (you find it under my post) the emails, pictures and documents you received from the fraudsters. The details you share may save someone else soon.
