Last month a friend from UK sent me a parcel.  The parcel was detained at Sarawak Customs as they informed me that they detected some cash in the parcel.  My friend told me he has put some cash in the parcel as the courier company informed him that I have to pay a clearance fee.  I have already paid the clearance fee of RM4500, which was banked into a personal account, which belongs to a staff in custom.

Now they want me to bank in another RM13500 as a declaration for the cash.

What should I do now?  Someone please help. Who should I go to for assistance!

You have been asking the same question over over here and there.
You have been answered several times of which you do not accept.

From what you have described there is no parcel of goodies. Even in the event there is, it could be filled with outdated iPads and costume jewelries and Parker's Monopoly paper moneys or even counterfeit photostated moneys.

Customs does not deal thru the phone. You deal inside the customs office, open the parcel in front of senior customs officer who will document or even video tape the whole process. If there is is counterfeit currency inside, you would be arrested on the spot. And if there is substantial cash inside, you have have to sign tons of forms and make Statutory Declarations and file in a Court of Law under the Anti Money Laundering Acts. 

What you have posted all indicates elements of possible scam. Your RM4,500 payment is just a tip of an iceberg in the Antarctic Continent. Many women have lost RM100,000++, some even their lives over such scams, documented in the media. Scammers lives happily on the word "Greed" "Love" and "Lonely".

Your boyfriend appears to be a seafarer or even well traveled MAN. All would have know how to send moneys to their loved via other means, some even can cash out within 3 hours electronically. Just take a trip to the Airport and let the customs officers there delightfully enlighten you.

Simple solution, ask your boyfriend to send you RM15,000 by Western Union for you to clear the parcel by tomorrow morning. And if he does not send by tomorrow, the parcel belongs to the Malaysian Government. Test back his love, his sincerity..!!

Perhaps it would good if you identify yourself as a Zambian rather than as an "African".

In this part of the world, most of these scams are often know as African Scams or Nigerian Scams.
Do not be mistaken, I have a Nigerian gf before, a few years ago. She did her masters in Business Admin in a local private University. She has gone back since.

In Thailand, the Thai Military have classified them as "African Scams". The main scam operators have been identified as Nigerians of the Muslim (Shias) sect identified by their dressing. 100's of thousands of Thai single mothers and lonely singles were scammed of moneys thru various methods.

When going thru Thai Immigration, anyone that looked like Africans have a hard time, often identified by their loud vocal english, which invoked more hostile reactions. But the thai ladies are jublilant with African Male Tourists.

The success of all these scams is
Greed
Love & Loneliness
Sex
