Stockdiscounts.co.uk is a scam website, used as a front for a shipping container sales scam. Please do not send any money to this ‘company’
Stockdiscounts.co.uk is a new website that has popped up that appears to be closely related to the Damon Foord Rail scam we have highlighted in an earlier post.
This is a scam website. Do not send these guys any cash. Despite claiming to be established for 8 years this website was first registered on 26/11/2019
If you visit the website, you will see a very suspect business address and a company reg number that is not valid if you check it.
If you fill in the enquiry form, you will receive an email back, which may read very similarly to this text below. (we expect that the content of this email may ‘evolve’ over time)
The email comes directly from a gmail account.
On behalf of myself at Damon Foord Rail Ltd I am inquiring to see if you would be interested in some of our stock that we have available. We are selling due to downsizing of our company and currently moving premises.
We have 9 shipping containers in total and will sell in single units or altogether. They are all in excellent condition and priced to sell. We also have other items for sale all in mint condition.
4 x 20ft containers mint condition £950 per unit
3 x 40ft containers in mint condition £1400 per unit
2 x 30ft office container units £1800 per unit
120 x pedestrian barriers £8 each
150 x heras fence panels £10 each feet £4 clips £1
2 x water bowsers 2000ltr newer £1000 older £800
1 x power washer bowser 1500ltr £1600
We also have:
Boss Youngman Tower scaffolding 5.7M £1000
890 x euro pallets in all grade A condition as we have only used to have delivery of stock delivered on the railway selling at £3 a piece
214 clean unused railway sleepers at £20 each
If you would be interested in anything that we have for sale I can send you some photos or give our office a call on 01622370130 to discuss any details or to set up a viewing.
This email is word for word the same email that has already done the rounds to many shipping container companies, some of whom have been contacted by victims of this scam.
We believe these scammers are using the legitimate company name Damon Food Rail Ltd and pretending to be this business. There is a lot of evidence for this but we are stopping short of publishing that here as this may also help the scammers improve their game.
Please do not spend your money with this scam website.
