The email the firts send me...

Your mail has been detected suspicious and carries illegal content within the EU jurisdiction.  Following Section 7, Article 4 (NW-07/4 039746/13) of 20th MAY 2013 of the EU/US AVIATION COMMITTEE & the International Regulatory Board for Medical & research products It has been placed ON HOLD. Refundable Insurance Cover is urgently required. Once this insurance is covered your Air Cargo will be set for departure to Belgium 

NOTIFICATION !!!!


IA Logistics wishes to inform you about an insurance that your package needs to come with. 

Your package was registered as a DISCRETE package and according to the way we ship, discrete packages are never checked by customs and this is entirely or mostly because of the insurance that comes with. 

This insurance cost is higher than the value of the package but at the same time, it is 95% refundable. 

The custom officers don't know it's refundable so they believe it's a premium package and won’t touch it unless something toxic is coming out of it that renders the package suspicious which isn’t the case with your package. 

You are required to pay an insurance levy of £1500 .

The package will carry the insurance policy with it and once it goes through custom and reaches your address, 95% of this amount will be refunded to you. 

This means that your real insurance cost is £75 because £1,425 will be refunded to you. 

We usually ask the receiver of the package to pay the levy because he or she will be the one to receive the refund. Also, in the case of a total or partial loss of your package, this insurance is going to cover the value of the package including the refundable insurance levy.  

The fastest way for us to receive this amount (£1500) is via moneygram or western union because it’s fast and instant and also because a bank transfer to us is going to take up to 3 days which may lead to unnecessary delay. 

We don’t have any cashier who can be able to confirm payment by this method so we spoke with your sender and its ok for you to use the same address he gave to you yesterday. 

It’s advisable to make this payment as fast as possible because the next flight that’s going to leave for Belgium where the package has to be shipped leaves this Afternoon

Once it’s confirmed, your tracking information will be updated as soon as the flight leaves. 

About the refund, a form has been attached with this email. 

Fill this form at your convenience but before the package arrives. When the package is delivered, we’ll send the refundable amount (£1,425) via the payment method selected in the form. Therefore the form has to be scanned and sent to us once you’ve filled it. 

The refund may take up to 24 hours depending on the mode of payment chosen, the time when the package and also the time difference between us. 

Note: Your shipment number is your tracking number. (When filling the form)


You can get with your sender for we have explained everything to him in full detail.  


We look forward to hearing from you soon.

It's a definite scam. There is no such thing as refundable insurance.

Whatever item you are expecting to be delivered does not exist and the seller is part of the scam.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

The seller is fake and the courier is fake.

Don't tell them anything, just block them and stop responding.

You have been told that it is a scam and that the package doesn't exist. This email is even more proof of that.

UPS doesn't use free email services like Gmail.

Just delete the email and don't respond to them. And ignore any further emails from anyone else who writes to you about the package.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Hello,

I ordered sth as discreet. I paid for the order and more for the shipment.
Now the shipment company wants me to pay at first 500 for special insurance beecause the package is discreet and they don't know what is imside.
I got a mail which was foe me stamge and I don't find the comapny on the internet just over the link they send me per whatsapp.
I told them that I don't have that money just 240 and they said ok so just pay that and now they are writtimg me to pay amd if one methode doesn't functions to try enother one. And I said no they won't get a cent because I alredy paid shipmemnt they are saying that they try to handle that calm and that I need to pay or they will give package to customs.
