Atlantic Cargo & Express Company - Malaysia Customs Clearance DeptCustoms Clearance - Additional charges to receive parcel

Below is a copy from the email I received from customs. I am attaching a copy of the email and documents I was sent by John Benson to track per his request - this will be below the Customs notice. I met John thru an internet site ( and we have been talking for 2 months. He has been on a business trip this past month and to date, I have verified most of what he has said as to where he has been but there are alot of phishers/scammers I have come across on a multitude of dating sites.. I have avoided most but now am afraid I have come across another.

      Agree.. I've also been put into this situation, knew a guy from The pattern of his writing is the same as the one submitted above. He uses Atlantic Express & Cargo too and with a guy by the name of Mr Edward Jones mobile : [protected]. He sms me today informing that I've received a parcel from UK and that the Customs are giving him alot of problem. I told him to settle the problem as he is professional and paid by the company (Atlantic Express & cargo) to deliver the parcel. I also inform him that if he still have problem, I will request the police for help to see if they can assist. He replied my sms saying that I'm insensitive and very insultive, and that he regret to accept the assignment. He then say he will leave the parcel behind at the custom and challenge me to get as many policeman as possible.

      Subject: Re: Do these officials work for Customs

      Thank you for using the Customs department e-Pertanyaan.

      Refering to your inquiry on the above matter, the explanations are as follows:

      Kindly be informed, we have received several similar cases in the past few months whereby innocent victims are tricked into thinking that they have parcels containing currencies being sent to them from overseas. However, the parcel is said to be "stuck" with the Malaysian Customs and certain fee has to be paid in order to get the parcel released from us. This is a scam. The Royal Malaysian Customs would not sent an email to the reciever of the parcel to make the payment for Customs clearance. The payment of duty/tax is not to the accountant or any personal account.

      Any form of payment made to them is NOT transacted to the Malaysian Customs Department at all. These unscrupulous people would abscond as soon as they receive the money. We strongly advice you NOT TO MAKE ANY PAYMENT TO THEM. If payment has already been made, please contact your local police station or the Royal Malaysian Police Force at Bukit Aman via e-mail at [email protected] to lodge a complaint.

      We hope that you are satisfied with our explanation.

      Thank you.
