    Has anyone heard of this company?. Are they legit?. I heard of this thru a Christian website- as a business opportunity. It looks to me like they are 3rd party providers of shipping services thru Ebay/ other websites. It sounds like it may be legit?......but then you never can tell these days. Appreciate any info.

    Do not do anything for expert-bid!

    It appears the damage is done for now as the site for expertbid.biz and the site you noted above is down.

    Also, all emails from Mihail Orlov are being bounced back from the server.

    Haven't found anything yet other than this posting, but am about to do some research for sure.

    I'm still not sure exactly what is going to result. I do however have a negative balance in my Pay Pal account of $5200.

    Appearantly, what expertbid did was deposit funds into my account using either fraudulent credit card accounts or phished info from legitamate accounts.

    Western Union provided some info about what potentially happened when I spoke to the Fraud department rep. on the phone.

    Pay Pal has not provided any information.

    What happened after correspondence relating to verifying my address and job functions (i.e. receive shipments to verify contents and ship to people who purchased at eBay or transfer money for items sold on eBay for users without paypal accounts), I received the following instructions from Mihail Orlov after verifying my address:


    Please check your paypal account

    2600$ from our client

    15% of amount 390$ you earn

    200$ - paypal and western union fees

    please sent 2010$ to our manager today via western union

    Receiver First name - Viktoriya
    Receiver Last name - Volkova
    Receiver Country - Russia
    Receiver City - Moscow

    And email me Sender name, sender country and MTCN number of Western union transfer for receiving money

    Thank you


    I did as instructed and after observing the charge back I contacted Mihail. Unfortunately the site was down by then and all emails (Mihail Orlov; ebay ebay [mihail_orlov@exprtbid.biz]; mailto:mihail_orlov@yahoo.com; Mihail Orlov [m.orlov@cnn.com]) bounced back.

    Pay Pal has not been very helpful in responding and all that I know thus far is that I have had both $2600 deposit charged back. Which now leaves me with a negative ~$5200 balance.

    I am assuming Pay Pal will write off as they have insurance as well. Have to see what comes of it as I was able to recover one of the transactions after contacting Western Union. One was picked up however.

    I filed a police report and once I receive my check back from Western Union for the service charge, I will deposit the $2600 back into my paypal account.

    Very frustrating and I feel like a complete idiot as I am a computer geek who should know better than trusting a business offer received by email without interviewing someone from the business.

    Hope this helps!

    SCAM! My pay pal account is neg. 1500. cause of this company. They change the url to the website ofton. Any thing from Mihail Orlov is a scam! His name was also the one associated with another scam that my sister fell for. Cant remember what it was from though. I would like to know whose paypal account the money was sent from from those of you who have been scammed by this company. The reason I ask is because the lady who sent me the money, I emailed her back & asked her to varifiy that she had sent it. She replied yes she did. I told paypal that & that I still had her email & offered to forward it to them But they did not want it. If the money came from the same persons account then maybe she was in on the scam. If so, I think we should all be able to settle it with paypal. Email me at sonyam@logantele.com if you were scamed by this also!

    Hi I received this email from Mihail today as well.
    After reading all these posts I emailed him the following:
    Sorry, Mihail.
    Have you ever searched for your name on Google?
    Not very pleasant things come up.
    I just don't know how you sleep at night....
    I wish you will eventually come back to the straight path and earn money legitimately.
    Have you no dignity as a human being?

    Henry Frank

    To which his response was:
    Whether to you to Americans to speak about advantage? Look that in the world
    it is created. You grasp soon all world, but on Russia break off as Napoleon
    and Gitler!

    Umm - translation please? Anyone?

    Wow.....haven't been on this forum for a couple of months- working P/T security; 8:50 an hour- 2 or 3 nights a week- long arduous work, and since they prefer 8 to 12 hour shifts, I've had to do a couple of round-the-clock tours. Can't keep it up, it's too hard on my health & nerves, along with my day job, consequently back to looking for good at-home p/t opp.

    Expert-Bid, looks like they were expert scammers!
