[SCAM ALERT] - Poland - Telenowela - Jozef Kukula

Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd share a scammer alert on here to warn others...

I bought a decent amount of MRE cases from this guy in Poland called Jozef Kukula (i'm posting personal information as its available on 'Allegro' the Polish eBay equivalent)

https://allegro.pl/uzytkownik/telenowela

https://www.olx.pl/oferty/uzytkownik/oswl/

The guy agreed to sell me 2023 inspection MRE cases - 'factory sealed' as he said

What I received is MRE boxes with various pack date codes plastered over with stickers - imitating official stickers & bar codes

Inside were MREs from various years ranging from 2017 to 2020. Some cases had menus missing (surprise surprise, menu 23 was nearly all gone)


When I contacted him about this he blamed this on 'factory error in Berlin, where they are packed & inspected :shock: )

My fault trusting him but he seemed like an ok seller with good rep.

There is no MRE (re-)packing facility in Berlin.

I can get 2020 packed MRE's at U.S. Commissary, but have to pay U.S. Gov't cost + 5% surcharge. That means about $125/case. Only James Bond can afford that, so.
