Tight Designs & Printing Service of Florida

Tight Designs - Printing Company of Ft. Lauderdale, South Florida

Don’t fall victim to scammers posing as willing print buyers.

Scammers pose as willing buyers and request a huge order to be shipped. The logic says there are commercial printing companies everywhere.

There is no need to pay an enormous amount of shipping cost if the buyer uses a local print company.

How the scam works

The scammer requests a huge order that is quite profitable for the printer.

After the agreement is made on price the buyer (scammer) requests for you to ship using their preferred freight company.

The buyer pays the printing company with a stolen credit card.

The buyer receives the funds, prints the job request and pays the freight company.

How the printing company is affected

When the print company pays the freight company for the shipping cost, that money is gone.

The money that was received from the stolen credit card has to be paid back.

The print company is stuck with unsold prints.

This is a triple whammy.

Don’t fall victim

Do not accept too-good-to-be-true orders. Use your judgement. Do they not have local print shops in the city where the requester wants the prints shipped to? More than likely they do, so why would they accept to pay for shipping?

Red Flags

  • ?Large orders
  • ?Willing to pay above the cost
  • ?Shipping Internationally
  • ?Shipping through Freight company
  • ?Domain name for website recently opened (check here)

We will try to update this page with more names that try to run this scam. Please link to this page to share this information and protect fellow print companies from falling victim. Most print companies are small mom & pop operations and do not have the funds to lose as a big company like Vista Print.

If you have been scammed or there’s been an attempt, please let us know the name so we can update this page and no other print companies can be affected by these deviants.

PengGaot_gaop@163.comHello there! I am from Beijing, China, do you design and produce business cards in Chinese characters?

Shipping to China is not a problem!
In the United States, there is an overseas forwarding company of China Post Express Company, and they can ship printed materials to China.
