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.

Today, I received a phone call and an email from someone claiming to be in admin of Transfast Logistics and delivery with website admin@trnsdlc.com asking me to pay for the release of my package that contains jewelries and and engagement ring with cash and some gadgets. He also said he just sent the money because he has no time to ask for my bank account as he is busy for his departure to Venezuela. Sent from New York from a certain Steven Michael with home address at 1482 Madison Ave, New York which I know from the internet. I have read few letters here just has the same content with just different senders name.

He even provided me with the tracking number and when I inquire from the site, the result also has appeared and even the travel history of the whereabouts of the package and the delivery date, exactly when the delivery date of arrival in the Philippines. A woman did call me about my payment.

I am wondering how this scammers can make it look real and how can they get that link of the company that whenever you track the information it really answers as from the company website.
