This fraudster should not be confused with any genuine company that has the same or a similar name. The website graphics and the evidence below identify this criminal alone.

This fraud has been transferred to a Rockphish botnet - new details here:
Global Shipping Agency Ltd

Global Shipping Agency is a standard money laundering job spamvertising website that is hosted on the same host and the same nameservers as the
SIBERIA Hunting Agency money laundering fraudster and the Shopper4U and YourShopper 'Purchase Agent' fraudsters. Their home page website content has been part stolen from the Westward Freight website and partly from the Mediterranean Shipping Company website. That much is self-evident and clear proof of site theft and fraud. They appear to have stolen the identity of a genuine Chinese branch company of the same name, (details below). They make the claim on their above home page: "Global Shipping Agency Ltd. (GSA Ltd.) was formed in 1996", but their domains gsaltd.org and gsaltd.net were only registered very recently, they have no web presence, they are advertising a clear money laundering mule job. In other words just a standard every day criminal fraud website created to fool the unwary into applying for a criminal 'job' with them which consists of accepting stolen funds into your personal bank account and transferring a balance back to these criminals using Western Union/Moneygram.
Evidence of Criminal Fraud:

i) They state on their above home page "Global Shipping Agency Ltd. (GSA Ltd.) was formed in 1996", yet their website domain gsaltd.org was only registered with PublicDomainRegistry.com on 30-Jan-2009 and their domain gsaltd.net was only registered with IMENA.UA on 30-Jan-2009. - a clear indication of fraud.

ii) Their home page website content appears to have been half stolen from the Westward Freight website and half from the Mediterranean Shipping Company website - clear evidence of site theft and fraud.

iii) They appear to have stolen the identity of the Hong Kong branch of the genuine Shenzhen Global Net Logistics Ltd. The branch is not listed by its parent company as having a website.

iv)
Despite their above claim of being in business for years, a Google search for "Global Shipping Agency" shows that this particular fake company has no web presence whatsoever. Do not confuse them with the genuine Hong Kong based freight forwarder of the same name whose details they have stolen.

v) Thay are hosted on the same Russian host, (ISPSYSTEM), and the same nameservers as the SIBERIA Hunting Agency money laundering fraudster and the Shopper4U and YourShopper 'Purchase Agent' fraudsters.

That is a crystal clear illegal money mule function of accepting funds into a private account and transferring them back out to the criminals less a percentage and on its own defines the company without doubt as criminal and bogus and is clear evidence of criminal fraud.

Do not be fooled - no legitimate business would employ unknown private individuals in a foreign country using their own personal accounts to 'process' transfers in this way. It will get your account and your assets frozen and could earn you a criminal record - do not be tempted.

vii) The Contact Details from their website:

Global Shipping Agency Ltd.
Unit 5, 8/F., Sands Building,
17 Hankow Road,
Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon,
Hong Kong
Email: GSA@gsaltd.org
Tel: (852) 2882 9706
Fax: (852) 2882 9610

•  - A Google search for the telephone number 
2882 9706 appears to indicate that this criminal has stolen the details of a genuine company called Global Shipping Agency who are not listed as having their own website, but are listed as the Hong Kong branch office of the genuine Shenzhen Global Net Logistics Ltd company.
The above evidence clearly demonstrates that the Global Shipping Agency website is a fraudulent website set up by criminals with intent to deceive. If you are an abuse team that has received an abuse report regarding these fraudsters, please consider immediate termination of their services in view of the absolutely undeniable evidence of criminal fraud - please don't delay - these criminals will not respond to any communication from you, (all their whois data is usually false), but will simply take advantage of any attempt at communication as a delaying tactic to allow them time to carry on their criminal activity and prepare their next network.
