Knew a guy from online (Jim Ethan Hong Tel: +1 909 443 4992) and few months later he said he will post gifts to me. Ask me to track location of parcel from https://overseadeliveryservices.com/tracker/. (Fraud website) This site look very real and will show the parcel's location. Received a call from someone (+60 164647438) claiming to be a parcel delivery agent. Ask me to pay a clearance fee for the parcel sent by Jim. I went to check the website and there is a chat portal that i can chat and get answers instantly. The fraud website indeed showed the parcel was in Malaysia and the chat portal customer service officer told me there is indeed a clearance fee needed. I was off guard as the website and the online portal look so real. Transferred money online. Minutes later, received another call from the same caller saying a large some of money was found in the parcel, need to pay another sum of money for Money Laundering Certificate to show that the money is not for money laundering. Again, i went to the website and again the online portal customer service officer said yes there is this money needed, urged me to pay this sum. This time round, i thought something was not right. Went online to check for such scam and yes, it is a scam. Told "Jim" and he denied he was involved in the scam and promised to pay me back the money for the parcel clearance but of course, the pay back was never materialised. I threatened him to pay me back the money else i will report him to the police and will expose the website. I went to check on the website, it was not functioning anymore and i made a police report immediately on 23 Dec 2017. Today (21/01/2018) i went to check the website, it is functioning again. I believe this syndicate is trying to scam someone out there again. Hopefully potential victims will see my report and not get con.
