This is a very similar MO to previous sites. this time they appear to have lifted the reviews and some content from Containers Direct, a legitimate container trader in Liverpool.
Chances are if dealing with them, you found an advert on Gumtree or Facebook marketplace advertising shipping containers at very attractive prices. If you spoke to them you were likley referred or directed to this website, or if dealing via Facebook the person posting the advert likley took your number and passed it onto the scammers who will call you back.
If you call you will always get through to an answerphone and leave a a message and they will call you back promptly. This is to allow the scammers to screen out calls from angry victims.
