Dear All,

I want share to you all that this scammer happen to me last 3 days..
I had called by skynet courier service that I received one parcel under my name, but hold by custom at KLIA due to money inside the parcel. The asked me to bank in RM4,000 for clearance at custom. after that, they called me again to asked another RM7,500 for insurance as instructed by Malaysia Inland Revenue.
To short this matter, I haven't pay them for the insurance. Then they threatening me to ask their lawyer to sue me. After checking via skynet courier service at Kota Kinabalu, they is no parcel under my name yet. this is website I received from the this agent https://skynetcs.net/uk/ . I assume this website is scammers!

Unfortunately, I had another parcel at same day via universalexpress courier service. I had pay some money to them also. But after I checking with city-link (which is it branches at Asia)..they told me that no parcel under my name fro universal. Please check out this website http://www.universalexpressuk.com/tracking/trackpro.php. It shown status of my parcel but yet no exist at all!...

Poor to me but hope keep lesson to me & everyody here..

Have nice day! :)

Welcome to ScamWarners Innocent girl. I am sorry to hear you have been scammed by this shipping scam.

How did you pay them for the fees? If it is by Western Union or any other online transfer service, your money is all gone. Real companies do not receive payment by Western Union or any other transfer services.

I agree, hopefully your experience will help save someone else.

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

Welcome to Scamwarners sweetcoly32,

Yes, it is a scam. There is not any packages, shipper or Regional Agent. It is a scammer trying to steal your money.

If you paid the fake fees. You will never get your money back. NO package will ever come. The scammer will keep lying and telling you to pay more fee's.

Never send money to someone you met over the internet for any reason.

It is best now to just not write the scammer back and ignore him.

Please post all the email addresses the scammer is using this will help others avoid his scams.

Please contact Mike Wilson if you have a question or information about this post.

Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.

Scammer name : Frankly Williams Terry (FB / Whatsapp / WeChat / Viber )

Same as other scammers, he claimed that he is sending me gifts from Japan (so happened that he was outstation in Japan), I have given my office address instead of house address. Guess I should resign soon before they came to my office....

The fake courier company I encounter was called GENERAL COURIER & SECURITY CARGO.(I've read almost all other victims were scammed by Universal Courier Express Service, wonder why). You would be able to track your parcel on their website. However it shown only the latest status which was "undergo inspection in Custom Malaysia". Then I received their calls and email.

Unfortunately, the most foolish me, had paid the fake fee of RM 5000. Then they asked for another RM 15,000 for insurance for Malaysian Inland Revenue. (LHDN). Then I knew I was being scammed as this should have nothing to do with LHDN) !!

I've now stopped contacting/block the scammers and everything.

I blamed myself so badly for being too stupid and I knew something was not right at the beginning, but it's already too late now for everything.
My heart is bleeding but I would stay strong and prevent for any future scam, Also I want to share this out to all people so you all can avoid or escape from these scammers. I wanna create some awareness to all as there are still many of us are not aware of this kind of scams.

Curse all these scammers all to death, or suffered lifelong for whatever they have done.

Amen.
