The same scenario exactly as yours. I met this Mr. Bentio Flavico through Myspace. He seems very good man and shows interests on me, chatting and even calling me. He made me feel that I am so important. For a couple of weeks exchanging chats he suddenly asked for my shoe size as he will send gifts before he leave to Wales for 3 months.

He said, he is looking for a future wife. He is marine engineer in an Oil company based in London.

I wonder also, since 3 weeks I entertained him he felt love and he even said to marry me after his contract in Wales.

Then, today September 05, 2011, I received an SMS from Mr. Abdul that I have a parcel in Malaysia but it was kept on hold as there is currency found during scanned and I need to deposit money as charges in order for them to release the parcel.

The same day, I informed Mr. Bentio Flavico, he is quite surprised and he just told me to please PAY THEM that is small amount only compare to the money I inserted around 5,500 pounds along with the diamond ring... Please do your best to release the parcel... I spend more money to send you that don't waste..

Oh my God, good thing I checked from the internet and I found out all this fraud.

All other ladies, please be careful...

DEAR MR ABDUL & MR. BENTIO,

MAY ALLAH AND ALMIGHTY GOD TOUCH YOUR HEART WITH YOUR CONSCIENCE...

FROM THE BEGINNING, I REALLY THOUGHT THAT ALL OF YOU ARE TRUE, YOU MADE ME BELIEVE.

I also have this email from PHB Cargo Attn: Mr. Abdul... they asked me to send the money and I told them I don't have money to pay it. The most stupid I am was they have the team who someone said love me (we met in Social Network Finder) and sent the parcel with the money inside and they are collaborated to cheat people.

Thanks God I had read this all and hadn't sent the money!

I had Chris Allison chatting on line claims to be from USA and going to work in Mexico for few weeks. Has a 28 years old son kelvin who was getting married in December. He has sent the gift containing a brand new HP laptop, 2 Apple iPhone, 2 iPad, bracelets, wrist watch, Gucci perfume, jewelries, rose flower and the sum of USD 12,000 dollars sealed in the same computer pack to enable you settle some of your daily needs, buy little things for your kids cos I know you are a caring woman. I can imagine how hard you have been striving alone to make a better life, and a box that contains some vital information you need to know about me. Just accept this token from me cos I know you truly deserve more cos you have proven to me that you are very caring woman and I promise to make you happy all our life.

Since there was no time to contact you any longer for your bank account details to do a little bank transaction I had no option than to sealed the money in the same pack with a rose flower right in the same computer pack and I sent it to the name and address you gave me.

From my inquiry the pack will arrive to your country 3 to 4 day’s time. Above are attached pictures of the pack containing the items and the air way bill from courier company for easy identifications. Please let me know when you receive the pack OK.

Rose, you know my heart is open for you this short moment we have known each other, my heart rest on you, cos you mean so much to me, I care so much about you and all my desire is to meet you some day cause you are a very good friend to me and share things together with you...

After am done with what I am doing in Mexico I can't wait to meet you and your family so we can have more time together. Please do take care of yourself and kids for me don't work yourself up much alright cos am here thinking about you so much alright. I know I will miss you! Will let you know as soon as I get to Zealand alright... Take care of yourself for me and have a wonderful day.

Kisses,

Chris.

Then got a call from the fake customs asking for USD1,750 to clear the customs fees etc.

These people are his friends who call and demand money gave the Western Union name but not the account name in Noor Azizah bt Chali Address: No 2b-7d Tasman Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Chris is using white man's profile and he is black African or American etc. Same guy posing as Gareth Dunn and scammed heaps of me.

The syndicate is still at large. Now they are preying on Malaysian girls and neighboring countries via Facebook. I nearly fall into the trap today when I was asked to transfer money for the parcel to be released from Malaysia. The Facebook lover called himself as HAKIM MOHAMED and the one who called for transfer is a Caucasian. Using the same phone number mentioned here.

Beware ladies! They also use the trick of being held by the authority and seek their future wife to be/victim help to transfer money.

This is a legitimate company name that they use but it is after all still a scam.

CTS COURIER/ LOGISTIC DELIVERY SOLUTIONS LTD
Asia Zonal Office
No. 148, Jln Persiaran Jubli Emas,
01000 Kangar, Perlis,
Malaysia.

Tel: +60169088719     

Email: tdsasia@transnet.ofshoregp.com

Attention:  Mr.Nigel P Smith

My name is Mr. Khalid Mark, the deputized official of the CTS Delivery Solutions Asia Zone. However I am here to notify you that the courier package addressed by Dr. Angela F Thomas from the United Kingdom to the aforementioned name in Australia has been withheld on its transit at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia by the Malaysia Customs. According to the Malaysia Customs, during their normal rummaging on all the packages on transits through their Country, it was discovered that the sender of the parcel paid only airfreight fee for the parcel but he or she did not pay for the due tax fee on the parcel’s items from the point of origin while the quantity / nature of the parcel’s contents / electronic items in the parcel are not duty free items thereby the concern parcel has been withheld by them.

Through this process, the Malaysia Custom has imposed some levies of penalty fee on the package in the sum of$570 USD (an equivalent amount of approximately RM1,754.93 Malaysia Ringgits) that must be paid to them within 48hours as the Penalty fees make up for the evasion of tax fee by the sender on the parcel’s items, before the   package can be released on its transits for the onward delivery to your designated address in your Country without which the parcel shall be confiscated by the Malaysia Customs after the expiration of the 48hours ultimatum given by them. Hence the said penalty fee need to be promptly advanced to the Malaysia Customs within 48hours in order to prevent the parcel from being confiscated by the Malaysia Customs Authority.

Meanwhile we have tried to reach the sender of the parcel through her phone but she did not answer her call while she did not also respond to our SMS notification that will sent to her phone, thus we also contacted her office number so as to see if we can get in touch with her through her office line but we are told that she is not available for now as she has since left to the offshore where she can hardly be reached. So in view of the fact that this matter required urgent attention of either the sender or the receiver of the parcel, hence it is imperative for us to notify the receiver of the parcel regarding the status of the parcel for it is a very serious matter that needed urgent attention to be sorted out so as to avoid any further unwarranted situation towards the parcel again.

Besides this matter cannot be handled by our UK office again as this incident is already out of Europe Continent, rather it can only be handled by the Zonal office here in Asia, hence you are hereby advised to urgently get back to us so as to find urgent solution to the aforementioned issue. Meanwhile the Malaysia Customs made us understood that once the requested penalty fee is being paid to them, they will issue the receipt of International Tariff Fees and stipulate it to the parcel in order to free the parcel from being subject to any duty or tax fee again upon its arrival to your Country

So you can call me, send SMS or email me through any of the above contact information for the prompt arrangement on how the said penalty fee imposed by the Malaysia Customs can be paid to them to facilitate the prompt release of the parcel for the onward delivery to your designated address before the expiration of the given ultimatum of 48 hours..

Awaiting your urgent response,

Best regards,

Mr. Khalid Mark

There's is guy, Tony Lee, who claims he's an engineer working in Manchester. He started off by chatting in Facebook and then subsequently in Whatsapp. It started off rather innocent but it quickly escalated to him falling in love with me (in a short span of 2 weeks of online chatting). He even sent several photos of himself to prove he's real. 

By the 3rd weeks, he said he'd sent a luggage of gifts for me with iPhone 10, iPad, PS4, gold chains & 8500 pounds. I was later told that the cash was for me to pay for the tax clearance in Malaysia which is odd. Cos' my place of residence isn't even in Malaysia. I was contacted by this dubious Malaysia number which informed me to pay $3000 for clearance via bank transfer. Most courier services do not do bank transfers via personal accounts. So this definitely raised alarm.

Well, I didn't want to pay and told him the same via text that I didn't believe him. And he just got really angry really fast and became all spiteful. From "Dear, I miss you" to "you are fool". And the parcel is suddenly forgotten. Eventhough he kept pressing me to check in the beginning. Now that the scam is exposed, he retreats with anger. Where do they get this sense of righteousness from I wonder?

P.S.: His English was consistently broken as well. Eventhough he claims that he was born and raised in US and is permanently working in the UK. And he would type messages to profess his love in form of poetry. Totally not credible. 

Well, just hoping nobody would fall prey to such schemers/scammers. Never believe anyone who'd fall for you in 2 weeks without even knowing you as a person.
