I just read a complaint against this company from another victim. I have reported this company to the local authorities, the FBI, the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), even MSNBC. Kenneth Hill (whatever his real name is) was the contact for KLM Logistic Systems. These criminals need to pay for their crimes. Here is the report I filed:
I believe I have been victimized by an employment scam. I had been in contact with a company that responded to my resume submission since Oct. 24. The company's name is KLM Logistic Systems. They offered to train me, along with other candidates, supposedly, for a project management position.
Along the training, projects were assigned in purchasing in which payments were transferred to my credit card account. They gave me account information to draw purchase funds from. First transfer was Nov. 26, for $5940.00. I was instructed to purchase 4 Macair laptops and ship to the new office in Kiev. I checked my account the next business day and saw that the funds have posted, so I thought. I went ahead with the purchase order. I was given another purchase order and was instructed to transfer $11,450.00. On Nov. 30 I made the transfer. Again, I checked my account the next business day and saw that my online statement said 'posted Nov 30th'. I went ahead and purchased and shipped 5 more laptops but several days later my bank reversed payments on both transfers (total of $17,390.00) due to unauthorized transfer on Dec 5.
I contacted my bank and they explained to me that transfers from a third party will be on hold for 10 days before they are officially authorized and posted... This I did not know. I then contacted KLM Logistic Systems and they gave me new account information and instructed me to transfer bounced amount. They explained that I needed to input my name on the name field instead of “KLM Logistic Systems” when I inputted the account. This, they explained was the reason the transfer was denied. On Dec. 6, I made the transfer but I as suspected, the funds bounced on Dec. 10 and I am unable to contact KLM Logistic Systems. As of now, they have taken me for approximately $16,000.00 in credit card charges.
I feel angry, frustrated, helpless, and foolish at the whole situation. I filed a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3.com), with the local FBI, and the local sheriffs’ office on Dec. 11.
With all that has happened, I still look at my situation and am thankful that I am employed. With the economic situation, I can't help but think of the many who are unemployed that fell for this scam, honest people who are trying to better themselves and to better provide for their families.instead what they get is a substantial amount of debt.
After further investigation of KLM Logistic Systems web domain name (klmls.com) using whois.net (which I should have done before getting into this whole mess), I found that the website was created in Ukraine, which is where the goods were shipped.
Realistically, I probably won't recover what I have lost monetarily but if for some remote chance these vultures get caught and brought to justice, it would be worth the $16,000.00.
