A Boston family’s address has been used as part of a cannabis delivery scam for which perpetrators created a fake business, known as Starlight Greens Delivery Dispensary, and collected money from would-be customers but delivered no product, WCVB reports.
Denise King, the Boston homeowner, said several people have shown up at her home seeking an order they placed through the website – but Starlight does not exist in the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission database. King noted that the Starlight Greens website had no telephone number, no 21-or-older site protection, and requested people pick up their order from the address listed, which runs contrary to its description as a cannabis delivery service.
King and her husband Jimmy have filed a police report with the Boston Police Department. Jimmy said he was concerned that some people can be violent.
The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office told WCVB that it is investigating the incidents after receiving a report from the family.
The website, excellentcannabisdelivery.com, was offline as of Monday morning. A message on the site shows that the account has been suspended. A Google Maps search for “Starlight Greens Delivery Dispensary” leads to a listing in Chicago, Illinois with a website containing a misspelling – “greenleafdispentsary.com.” The link forwards users to smartcannabisdelivery.com which contains the same look as the suspended site and is also, likely, a scam.
