Same foreign criminal scammers who perpetrated the IK2WYJ scam.
Did you receive an email to track your package at skyxpdpcon.com/web?
Where did you mail the money order?
How can the Pueblo police say they're nothing they can do when there's now been at least two document cases of mail fraud in their jurisdiction. Total BS!

Sorry this has happened to you Jerry. I am guessing you sent a money order to the address in Colorado. Hopefully your post will prevent other hams from getting scammed. These scammers will get their day.
Yes I sent a money order.
It’s likely that this vanvalkyrie person is also a “victim” of sorts. The scammers use “ money mules “ to obscure the trail back to them.
Sure, there is a person at that address to collect the proceeds, keep a small percentage, and forward the rest to the big cheese.
Yeah, they probably know that what they are doing is illegal but they are not necessarily the perp.
Agree that they are accessories to the crime, but they are often recruited through ‘work at home’ advertisements. That’s why they are also ‘victims’ themselves. They get suckered into it.
Some are probably stupid enough to never realize they are aiding and abetting.
Look at it this way, just as the true victims are being duped, so can be the money mules. These scammers are much smarter than most ppl give them credit for.
Here's where the money is going:
