I read those messages posted here. I am in the same situation. My fiance sent me 2 laptops, an engagement ring, and 6000 pound worth of money last March 25, 2010 through CrossLinkExpress. He also gave me the tracking number, login ID and also the password to check when it will be delivered to me in the Philippines. I found that it has been delivered last March 29, 2010. On the same day, someone called me and said that he's from Malaysian Custom and informed me that I have to pay them $600.00 for the shipping charges and I have to pay them through Western Union money transfer. He also sent me an email stating the name of the receiver. I've already sent them the amount they are asking but still they didn't send the  package in the Philippines. They keep on calling me and asking me for another $600.00 because he told me that the total charges is $1,200 dollar. The same person is keep on calling me and ask me to pay for the remaining balance of $600.

I want to know if there is such company CROSSLINK EXPRESS?

Here are the details that my fiance sent to me to verify the exact date of the delivery of the parcel.

Please let me know if this is a scam also. My fiance told me that he might sue them to court if the parcel will not be delivered.

I hope you could help me find the truth in this matter.

There is no parcel and there is no Crosslink Express.
Your fiance is a professional conman.

Same thing happened to me.

I've been chatting with a person by the name BROWN RICH / RICH BROWN or JACK RICHARD. To cut the story short, he said he has sent me a package but was put on hold at the Malaysian Customs and I was being asked to pay for charges and fees in order to release the package.

I sent the money twice of amounting $2,728, 1st payment was for administrative and clearance, the 2nd payment was the tax and insurance fee which I paid all.  The 3rd they asked me another payment which was anti-money laundry certificate fee of $1,200. My money was finished because I paid the 1st and the 2nd but the 3rd I did not.

He still insist me to pay that package. But how come? I don't have even single penny in my pocket. Nothing to be honest, because of HIM. I trusted him because of every single word he says, soft spoken, used the always the name of GOD. It seems he is a good man and photos looks very professional... but all is the opposite. HE IS GREAT LIAR, CHEATER, FRAUD. IF YOU ENCOUNTER HIM PLEASE BEWARE!!! I met him in Cherry Blossom site. His email is Please stay away from this guy. He is very dangerous man.

His phone number +447031857295

Same thing happened to me. I expected a parcel with one HP laptop, a gold neck-lace jewellery and 10,000 pounds. The parcel was sent from England and was being blocked in Malaysia because of apparently undeclared 10,000 pounds found inside the parcel. They request for a fee payment of 1,300 pounds to release the parcel. I received the Malaysian company e-mail telling me about sending this 1,300 through Western Union so I replied authorizing them to take 1,300 pounds from the 10,000 pounds for fee payments and release the parcel but nothing happened by now. So what should I believe? Can anyone help? It's frustrating situation.

Same thing happened to me around August 2010, with a package that sounds surprisingly similar to yours [1 HP laptop, Gold Necklace, 1 Blackberry Hand Phone, and 10,000 pounds]. It was supposedly sent UK to Australia, and caught in Malaysia.

I suspect it is a scam, and I believe my ex-partner may actually have benefited from the scam (i.e. I think she is part of the scamming group). Her name is Adelaida Tomogon Ignacio (Phone: 0432 247 077).
