Same as Marose's case (Government Custom Malaysia Topic). I also have known a friend from Internet and he sent me a parcel containing UK currency. The courier demand a penalty in order to send me the package. The one who sent it told me he can't get through me to get my bank account number that time so decided to put the money in the parcel with other valuable things to send to me. I also don't have such money to pay for any penalty. What should I do now. Would you please help me verify if this courier and package from a friend who I've known from the Internet really exist.  Thank you very much for your help.

Attached herewith is the email from the courier.

Hello honey, I have just finished my seminar for today, please I want you to help me contact the courier delivery agent by tomorrow then you can send the money to the agent to do all the clearance so that he can make the delivery of the parcel to you in your address. Thank you honey!

Please advise me if i pursue this thing. Lux logistic services have been sent letter to me that the package of certain US Army has been there. And the US Army said he will deliver his parcel to me. However, there is a duty clearance amounted to 2,521 dollars which I need to pay it thru Western Union. And upon sending the remittance slip to then, the logistic will now proceed the deliver the box to me. They gave me due date until today, 2-21-2017.

At this very moment, there is a doubt in me. Is the Lux Logistic services legit? Their web is luxlogisticservices.com

Please help me to decide. I will send the money tomorrow morning.. I need the box but is this not a hoax?

What is in the box?

Bullets? Counterfeit moneys?

It is a scam..

It is better that you bank in your money into my personal account, at least I will thank you from the bottom of my heart. I promise..

Be careful who you meet online, never send money to someone you have never met, make friends, but when they start talking about sending money, just block them.

@jeff, so true.. Its better to bank in your account and meet later for some tea so that you thank you... Don't waste your money on these scammers, after you sen it they will go to club and you will be waiting for nothing.

Thank you all guys. I also get this messages from Mark Elvice. He said that he is from England. +44 7466 598863 is his WP number. He said to me about his parcel gift and 20,000 pounds sent but I was thinking like no one helps like him so I just search in google about parcel gift fraud and I read about this fraud scam case in detail.

Finally this time while my mom was talking with him I told him that I know this is all a scam and that my relatives are from DSP police department. They are gonna track him down. He cancelled WP call, blocked me and my mom from WP and also from Facebook too. His Facebook is Mark Elvis.

After reading and learning from this site, I decide not to call him next time. Thank you guys. Love you all.

But the thing is that he has my address so what should I do? I am 100% sure that we will not give a single cent but what our address which I have given him?
