Firstly thanks to God who given his grace to me so that I escaped from this scammer named David Jimmy, a handsome man from Dublin, UK who worked for Maersk Shipping Line, UK (he told me so). He did send me BP 250.000 thru Pigeon Worldwide Express Service, ask me to keep it. When he told me about the sea pirates, I already knew what's gonna be.. I curious of it. The package doesn't come yet and no call from the Courier. I check on internet and found this forum and by reading all testimony here I more thankful that God saved me. I haven't replied his email since I am curious about his reason to send the money. God bless us all!

I encounter the same story just now. He is calling Aaron Taylor. He plans to fly from New York to Sydney. Suddenly changes to cruise. Now he is talking to me that his ship is getting problem and landing at Leban Island. He asked me to send him address and full name. Luckily I search this post and found the similar stories. Thx ladies.

Now his name in Facebook is ALEX LINU. He sent nice messages. However, sometimes inconsistency in his ideas as well as the way words are written can be noticed. It's very obvious that his messages which are almost the same with WILLIAMS BENSON as shown above have been only copied from somewhere else. It's maybe done by a group of persons doing romance scam with women who use different names.

All the above parcel scams, are there a physical parcel? A friend from Facebook informed me that he has sent a parcel to me. A week later I received a call from a courier company in Sarawak International Airport saying the parcel from UK has arrived and I have to pay a clearance fee of RM4,500 before it can be cleared by the Customs. The caller gave me a personal account to bank in the money. She told me the account belongs to a staff in the customs office. I contacted the sender. He assured me to pay first as he has left some money in the package. Without second thought, I went ahead and transferred the money. Few hours later the same caller called me informing that customs have scanned the parcel and found cash in it. If the sender does not have any declaration document I have to pay RM13,500 for the release of the parcel. Again I contacted the sender. He assured me the contents in the parcel is worth more than RM13,500. If I can pay for the release and get the parcel I would be getting valuables more than the RM13,500. I couldn't pay this amount and told him so. He wrote and said he was so upset as I couldn't get the valuables in the parcel and he doesn't want it to be confiscated by customs. He asked me to try and think of a way to pay for it. Is there actually a parcel? If there is what will happen to it? Confiscated or returned to the sender? Hope I can get some answers to my questions. So confused. Thanks.

I cant believe that I fell for this guy too. I consider myself to be pretty cautious but this guy was smooth. He even sounded Danish as he claimed to be. 

My love l am sorry for my absence and not being able to write and chat with you,this is because of our situation here.The major fault with the ship was more than what we initially anticipated and we are seriously working on it.We received a frightening information from the Signal house about our Location and that is a major source of worry for everyone in the ship right now,this is the least thing i expected to hear.Just can't think of anything right now because of the panic and tension in me...I am worried about my safety,colleagues and everyone on board this ship.We received information from the Signal House that there are SEA PIRATES blocking the sea which is about 312 KMaway from us where our Ship anchored in Labuan Island somewhere in Malaysia where the ship repair is current ongoing.
The Captain is forced to announced that all on board the Ship should offload their valuables and goods for another means of transportion as the ship will remain here for another 4 days until its safe to continue sailing. At this point in time the decision of the Captain is always final,it is like one is given no other option and that worries me so much.It worries me so much because i have some savings here with me which is meant for my holidays and other expenses including personal dealings. I have you and i am very grateful to GOD for us.We actually have no option than to take and follow the directives of the Captain,because;
1.Nobody here wants to be robbed of his valuables by sea pirates if you know what i mean.
2.Situations like this the Captain's decision is final.
The good news is we have been informed that they have some security company stands at the sea shore and that has been a source of relief for me and everyone on board. This allows us to safely transport our savings and valuables to their various destination.I am thinking of what to do? and at this time I can't think of anything than you,so dear i will need your help to receive my money on my behalf and this is the safest option i have got.
I made inquires on their mode of operations,including the sender and receiver so i am very satisfy with it. I have decided on sending you the money so that you can help keep it safe until we are okay to continue the trip and finally meet you.
I have come to TRUST you and i have no doubt in my heart you are the woman for me,i know you will keep my heart safe,my whole heart safe so that life can move straight with us.You have placed so much effort in us,our relationship and our plans for the future,i promise i will never disappoint or hurt you,i will be safe and strong for you.I have learned to take life as it happens as I remember everything happens for a reason.I will further discuss with one of the security companies here.They will proceed delivery immediately and will have to get a confirmation from you to assist me in receiving the money because that is the option i have left and you well know i dont want to loose my hard earn money to sea pirates because i know how i suffered for it.
You quickly forward to me some information as follows to enable me process and send to you immediately.
Your Full Name:
Your Receiving Address: 
Please be fast about it...
I miss you, i was so tense and unsettled.I am worried and really worried,please i will need your prayers as well...
Awaiting your reply  Bill...

Hhmmm been chatting to a guy called William James (poss middle or surname is Smith). He says he works at a Shipping Company is from Australia originally and lives in London. Handsome guy, however his facebook is all girls and is really new. He has sent me pictures on kik which seem to come up as Camera (meaning they've just been taken). He calls me and has an accent, now he says he is sending me his dog to look after and some items by a friend who works for Maersk. He gets defensive when I tell him it sounds like a scam but I really do feel it is. Any thoughts?
