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.

The same happened with me but I am lucky that I called up a friend of mine who is in Airways and he said this is all scam and that I am into a fishing racket so to be aware of.  This courier company is express courier service Chicago n dis man whom I came to know through a matrimony site is Vijay William Morris.  He said me similar rosy things  I am from India and today got a call from a lady asking for custom clearance of Rs 45,500 into some agents bank address. Beware

I don't know what to say.. because I have been in the same situation.. I know him for just 2 months and he did the same, which was he sent me gift containing USD 100,000 cash (because his lawyer blocked his transfer online due to fraud issue), watch, handphone and laptop (Apple brand), gold bracelet, and handbag.. I don't believe him but he always update me where he has been.. He always sends me a selfie... And he has a daughter. That's why I believed.. I had transfer RM 2,000 for clearance payment.. And now they want me to pay RM 4,500 for anti-money laundering certification.. But I can't afford to get it anymore so.. I gave up.. Now I am still in contact with him and he said he will try to transfer to me the money because I'm begging him as I don't have money anymore. Now I am waiting for blessing from God!

I have the We met on Badoo, a dating site; we exchanged WeChat, we did not talk so much, I ignored because I am dating with someone else, but one day he asked my address cause he wanted to send me something. I gave him without any doubts, after that he keeps on saying that he bought me so much valuable things, I did not believe him because it is unusual to give a stranger a lot of expensive stuff like this.  I started to be more polite by answering his messages after sometimes. I researched his name on the internet, but there was no single information I had found, no facebook, no tweeter, no Linkin, this is abnormal. The address he used on the invoice was not precise; it has been on housing stock as I checked. The name he is using is Willians Jerry, an engineer, Canadian, Work in London, phone +44778401311; address in London: 62 Greenwich street, Greenwich London SE10 8UN United Kingdom

On 13 November 2017 at 11:36 pm he sent me an email to the email address I gave him as below to confirm that he had sent me a parcel. He was using Inxpress shipping company, which is a real company that I have checked: 

Greetings from GERMANY

First of all, I hope that everything is well with you, so with the rest of the family in God's grace and blessings..

Anyways, I just want to let you know that I have made my trip,  And yesterday was so busy that I couldn't manage to call you before my flight.  Baby all I need from you is your prayers that everything goes smoothly and for me to work hard and I promise that I will be there as soon as i am done here.

I have sent these things as my surprise to you and here is the contents  of all I sent to you.

One grayish bag containing my belongings:
1 Japanese Ladies Gold watch
Two pairs of jacket with trouser
One brand new HP laptops
1pc 24K Italian Gold Necklace
2 boxes of ring
1 Per Una V-neck Frill Chemise
3 packs of chocolate beverages (varieties)
Two cups of variety vitamins, pcks of ibul propain and paracetamol
One brand new Samsung Galaxy Phone
1Pc Chanel Bag
2 Victoria Secret  Perfumes
2 Es tee Lauder Perfumes
Marks & Spencer set of under wears
Two pairs of shoes
A BOUNCH OF INCANDESCENT-ROMANCE FLOWER

TRACKING NO:   AWB-314680520
WEBSITE:  http://www.inexpress.ltd

For you to look more sweet 'till I come back..  Baby with sum of (20,000pd) as my surprise for you to take good care of yourself and settle all expenses to rent a new house (I don't know if this money will be enough for the house so you may rent if it can't be enough, it was bcs the allowance was said to be completed when I am through here) and please honey check if I put my driving license and my master card in that bag because I can't remember again if I did as I was in a rush.  Honey just thank God for me because i nearly missed my flight when I was trying to send this to you. I was with the agent and I was called that it was our time to board and I had to rush again to the airport, honey low and behold I was the last to board. This would have terminated my job but God is great. There are swimming kits, hand lotions in there too.

About all these presents I sent to you, this is just to let you know how much you mean to me since I've met you.

Baby don’t worry about the money that I put inside it's just that I'm on rush and I can’t make  any transaction that is why I include  the money inside baby when you get the package just open the Chanel bag and you will see the money there then use them as I told you love.

You may have not known how much I love you and you mean a lot to me.. About the money I gave it to you from my heart
He has the invoice attached but I do not know how to input it here.

On 15 November 2017, I received two emails, same content but two different places (the first place is Malaysia Custom, second place is Taiwan custom- which is in the tracking site record), from INEXPRESS COMPANY POST COURIER SERVICES, as below by Gmail, which I did not give him.

I have blocked the above email address. Besides, I had received a phone call from Chinese women name Wu, phone +886 979-968-144 from Taiwan told me to pay the amount of money $2500 to get the parcel release. 

I pretended that I know nothing, but keep on saying that I do not have money, he keeps on telling me that I should borrow my friend's money. I stopped talking to him but still not yet deleted his Wechat to see what is he going to do.

I was also not aware on this kind of scam. Just happened on me on 12 January 2018.

The guy - Philip Wong who work as a pilot and added me in Facebook and then requested to chat via WhatsApp. After chatting in WhatsApp and I cannot find his profile in Facebook, I felt something fishy. He told me his name is Michael Wong in the Facebook but in WhatsApp is Philip. His WhatsApp number is +1 (916) 8361508. So, I never to text him and just keep it to myself but he kept WhatsApping me daily...

We know each others not even a week then asked me to pray for him to touch down safely as he is pilot. On 11 January 2018, he told me that he is in Canada and bought some gifts for me. He said wanna surprised me but he did not have my address. He requested my full name, address and email. I given to him and asked why bought me gifts? He said coz I am his friend and am good to him. But I really did not entertain him most of the time. He told me he was sad coz misplaced his wrist watch into the parcel which he sent to me and for that reason I have to pay additional charges when I received the gift. At the moment I didn't think too much and I said if there is a small surcharge, I can pay. He asked me don't worry as he did put money in the parcel.

On 12 January 2018 early morning, I received a WhatsApp call which is Malaysia phone number at 01137941174 (Frank) who claimed he is working for United Overseas Courier but my line was not good. Frank text me and said the parcel has arrived but I need to pay RM4,500. I was shocked and asked why so expensive and he told me coz exceed weight and some imported duties fees. I asked where the parcel was and I need the tracking number. He asked me to liaise with Philip on it. Then I text Philip and he told me got iPad, iPhone 6 (if bought on 11 January 2018, should be iPhone X instead pf iPhone 6 right?), perfume, shoes and bags. I asked why bought so many and he said just wanna to make me happy....the most important thing is he said inside got USD50,000. I felt so funny and I said I need to clarify all the things.

Then I text Frank and questioned lots while searching Google on United Overseas Courier and it came out lots SCAM cases... so I kept asking and Frank was impatient and started to say I was insulting his company and if I do not make the payment, I will get in a big problem and police will come to me. I told him that then we both lodge a police report now and let them investigate this. Then he tried avoid answering it and at the same time I told Philip and Frank this is a scam case and is a trap for me. Then Philip said is not and he is different from others and asked me to send both of them the scam case link.. I took the pic and sent to both of them.

The worst is Frank as he asked me to show him my family photo when I told him I am telling this to my dad. Philip and Frank asked me don't bother my dad and just pay the money. I said my dad will lodge a police report and Philip asked me don't do that.

After that he asked me to pay the deposit to get the gifts and pay the rest when I get the gift together with the USD50,000. I told him that dad and friends do not allowed me to do so and I have no money to pay. I asked Frank to provide me the address for courier company and tracking number and he rejected. Also, threaten me if I want the parcel and must follow their procedure instead of my own procedure. As I told him frankly that I won't pay if payment is to a personal account. I think he was angry as he might already know I won't make any payment since I know he will give me a personal account.

At the same time, Philip still keep asking me to pay deposit and I said unable to do so as my dad is holding my account and won't release it to me and he asked me to look for money from my friends as well. I said can't as I did share this to them and they know this is scam and won't borrow me any money. I also told him, how come a real courier company allowed us to pay half and why not he pay all or bank in to them. He said please believe in him and he is a Christian so he won't to cheat me.

He is already frustrated and just told me if I wanna to settle the payment please bank in to this CIMB bank account 7015831403 under a Malay girl's name, Razdha binti Rasul. I told him I want the company account and address for me to go to the company and clarify. He ignored me and just gave me the account.

I reported him as scam and blocked him in WhatsApp. And Philip still begging me to pay the deposit and I told him I am not gonna do so and will block him. I am not sure what will go on since they got my address. And I made a police e-lodgement to protect myself. So, must be aware.
