Hi Dear,

I could guess you are doing absolutely great today; I am so glad that we are moving ahead to know each other, As To know if we can find the chemistry between us then we can decide.

I WILL SOON MAKE A TRIP

My Dear,

Thanks for your kind attention and your time to write me, I called my Mum yesterday, and she wish to see you as soon as possible. Considering your wish in meeting me here. I am making a proper arrangement to visit you very soon in your Country, I can't stay without things of you. It is very important for me to express to you how much you really mean to me. I wish I could do this in person, But since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this, I told you about my previous marriage life in the first email i sent to you may be you didn't read it, try to read it you will know about my previous life.

I have a contract coming up but I didn't know how soon that will be, please don't feel so lonely here for not writing to you all day. I know it is difficult for you, as it is for me, to be separated for so long. Life seems to be full of trials of this type which test our inner strength, and more importantly, our devotion and love for one another.

After all, it is said that "True Love" is boundless and immeasurable and overcomes all forms of adversity. In truth, if it is genuine, it will grow stronger with each assault upon its existence. The longer I am away from you, the greater is my yearning to be with you. I cherish any thought of you, Price any memory of you that rises from the depths of my mind, and live for the day when our physical separation will no longer be. Until that moment arrives, Please keep well and take good care of your self.

With Love,
Arnold.

Madam
The management have spoken with your husbands about your inability to come up with the required amount about your parcel that you must come up with 50% of the charges before any thing can be done because of your husbands situation on the sea. You have to make this urgent because we will confiscate the parcel and you have to come down to Malaysia for the clearance if the payment is not made.

This is because the parcel is not now in our custody,That is in Custom Custody and what so ever that happens is let for both the sender and the receiver. We can not clear the parcel from the custom to send to the receiver without the clearance charges.

Darling,

I received a call from the company which made me to call them back, The company told me that the Custom Authority detected the money I put for you inside the parcel that we must pay for the clearance charges. I asked them to charge my credit card so that they can be able to settle the fee required and send the parcel to you immediately, but their Operational Manager in Malaysia told me that they don't accept credit card for payment, and where I am now, I don't have access to any banking transaction, am 75 miles inside the ocean for my offshore work, Otherwise I could have remit the charges for them.

After series of telephone conversation with the manager, he told me that we have to make the payment urgently so that the parcel will be delivered to you at once. I just want to make you have a memorable feelings in your heart about meeting me and knowing me that was the reason I put the money for you and also for my hotel when I come over to meet you.

So Please contact the company now and send to them the required charges so that you will receive the parcel.
with care,
Arnold.

I encountered also the same case for that matter. Do you have photo of that guy?

He send me exactly the same message and asked me to pay USD$750.00 for the same courier, for the reason that the parcel was on hold by the Customs of Malaysia.

This is very alarming.

I helped you by calling the number given. They gave a false tracking number. They also asked for my money, about RM2150 for my parcel to be released. They have been using this number since for their parcel scam. The person I've spoken to on that number can't speak any Malay language. He asked me to pay to:

Maybank account *111252047434*

I am facing the same problem too whereby this guy known as Mohd (living in UK, working as engineer there, been studying in Edinburgh University, living in Edinburgh, Scotland and parents living in London) eventually wanted to be friend with me.

He's been texting me for a week, telling me that he likes me and all of sudden he said he wants my house address together with contact number. I asked him why. He replied that he already bought a lovely set of white gold (earrings, bangles, necklace, 2 set of yellow gold and rose flower, chocolates, perfumes, wrist watch Pierre Cardin (2 pieces), 2 ladies handbags (Louise Vuitton) and have a brown envelope inside one of the handbag with sum amount of money (about 10K Dollar) for me to use to spend it on buying cloth and shoes in Malaysia.

He claimed that he already paid for the international charges. I only need to pay some local charges in order to get the parcel direct to home which I feel that it's a bit ridiculous therefore I gave my friend's address. He said that he already send it to me by yesterday and should be reach Malaysia by today.

For someone who barely know each other and just contact via messenger only, can you simply give so many expensive items plus large amount of MONEY to your online chatting friend? Only insane people will do that. Some more, he's been staying in UK, why want to give me money in Dollar? Why not in Pound?

This morning, I received a call from this number 0143686520 asking me to bank in RM1850 to this bank account under name of Zulkify Bin Mohd Yusof-RHB bank because according to the caller, Edi, the Malaysia courier branch of this Global company is only available in Sabah; not KLIA/KL/JB (which makes me curious because as far as I know, all courier are directed to KLIA first since KL in the capital of main courier transportation or Borneo - if any of the receiver stay there and the charges will be extra). And the caller doesn't even know how to speak English but she spoke in Sabah dialect! Which makes me more curious because as far as I know that all courier company must be able to speak fluent English.

And why the company doesn't have their own account number? Why use somebody account? I asked her why the parcel were delivered to Sabah and she replied that their company are taking direct courier from UK to Sabah. I asked her the address of the company and she said she will call back later. Won't it be suspicious for the person who have been working to the company doesn't even know the company address. She called back later and told me Jalan Pintar, Penampang, Sabah.

I asked her why I couldn't find the company in Internet, she replied that it's expensive to advertise the company in the internet! Guilty again. It's not logic for a company who has been dealing with UK unable to advertise their company on the internet.

I've asked my sister who stayed in Sabah and she said there's no company by the name Global there. I text this guy, Mohd and complaint about the company asked me to pay the money but he did not reply. I try to call him by the number that he gave me yesterday (+447513635427) so many times but it shows on the screen 'call failed'!

I text him via Facebook messenger and told him that my dad is holding my card and I can't pay for it. If I have to loose the parcel, I'll abandon it for the sake of listening to my dad since my dad does not allow me to take the money. I told him to pay first and I'll pay back to him later since nowadays, every business can be deal through internet within few seconds, therefore, for someone who claimed that he's wealthy, if he really wanted to give me those gift, can't he settle everything for me?

5 minutes later, I received a call from "No ID". He claimed that he's Mohd but he didn't sound like somebody who has been living in UK for 18 years! He speaks in broken and crap English. Doesn't sound like educated people. Even from the text also I can judge that this person is lying to me. The grammar, past tense, present all upside down. Yet, for somebody who already migrate to UK for more than 18 years, doesn't he know how to type proper message and speak Brits English very well? He scolded me for nothing. I cuts the line. Fortunately, I've read the complaint regarding same issue in here just now when I was googling about this company which is exactly and similar to my story. Lucky I did not bank in the money. Though it's not much, but money is money. It's still valued and it's not easy to earn.

Mine also same story. I just post it on the forum.

This fellow (claimed to be Mohd Faizal) have been chatting with me for a week. He wants to give me a parcel similar as above story and gave me this number +447513635427 but "call failed" will appear on the screen once I dialed. Whereas this number, 0143686520 claimed to be Global Courier, the person can't even speak English; spoken in Sabah dialect. He asked me to bank in RM1850 to a personal bank account under 'Zulkify Bin Mohd Yusoff', RHB Bank account number 10701900765301 in order for me to get the parcel delivered direct to the receiver address. Weird right? A courier company does not have an account?

Nowadays, people will do nonsense things just for the sake of money. Luckily and fortunately, I've read the above complaint when I was googling the company on the internet.

I also have the same story...

Just got to know a guy from Facebook name Mathew Cheng a pilot and request my personal phone number... Then added me as friend in WhatsApp... started chatting with sweet words... only 3 days he suddenly said 'Darling how are you doing and how is everyone in your family? Darling am in Canada now, I did some shopping for myself and I bought you few things, I wanted to make it as a surprise to you but I don't have your details to send them across to you by courier service that's why am telling you so that you will send me your address okay. Take care and hope to hear from you soon.'

After providing the details... Then he replied 'Dear I just got time to send you the details, it has been posted. Dear, the things that I sent to you are ladies bags and jewelries, wrist watches and iPhone. Dear, I know you will be surprised for what I have done for you, I want you to know that your friendship is important to me. You are such a nice lady, and you deserve more than this. I kept a brown envelope inside, open it and there you will find USD25,000 is for you to tidy up yourself and your family. The courier company told me that the receiver have to pay for the clearance when they arrive in your country before they can deliver it to you, that is why I also kept the money for you in the package in case you spend any money to clear the package. I want you to also take 10% of the money and donate to any less privileged  Organization in your country and take the rest to assist your self.

After 24 hours... then this happens...

[28/04, 10:30 am] Mathew Cheng: Dear the courier company just called me now that my parcel has arrived in your country. Have you received my parcel?
(The courier service called me asking to pay RM3000.00 from this number 011-16910944 saying they are in Cargo Sepang... No details can be provided unless the money is ready....)
[28/04, 10:33 am] Mathew Cheng: Dear please fellow there instructions and make the payment for them so they can deliver my parcel to you today okay.
[28/04, 10:37 am] Mathew Cheng: Dear go now and make the payment for them so that they can deliver my parcel to you today okay.
[28/04, 1:28 pm] Mathew Cheng: Have you made the payment to them?
[28/04, 1:44 pm] Mathew Cheng: Their name is global express.
[28/04, 5:11 pm] Mathew Cheng: MOHD SOLLEH BIN AHSA  22301002877 HONG LEONG 
(So I asked why is it to bank in money to a personal account? He just said, I don't know they have just sent me this and you just follow)

Is there anything to be done with this?

I arrived at this site because I have been searching for any possible package scam connected to East West Global Delivery and Logistic Services.

My co-worker was added by one "Henrik Morrison" on Facebook. They have been communicating for some time now until he informed her that he will be sending a package containing two iPhones 7, black and golden color, One black HP window 7 Laptop, One White color note pad. He was able to give her a "Tracking Number" and a website (eastwestgdls.com) where she can track the shipment of the package. It was supposed to arrive last June 30, 2017. Then she received a text message from a "Custom officer" from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Manila, Philippines that the package is with the Custom Officer and that she has to pay Php7500 for the "Clearance" of the package. She confided to me because she was hesitant to give out a large amount. When I tried to check the conversations she had with the "Custom Officer", I started to doubt of her identity because she was using her personal number which I think is very inappropriate. She cannot even speak straight English cannot spell correctly.

My co-worker said "Henrik" has been contacting her through Messenger asking her why she did not claim the package. She also tried to send a message to the said courier via e-mail asking them why the package was not yet delivered. According to the received e-mail, "The agent is complaining that you refused to clear your parcel from customs... Please do comply with them as to facilitate the delivery of your package okay". 

My co-worker is very confused right now since she is also thinking about sending the agency the money to get the package because "Henrik" has been asking her to settle everything.

What should she do?
