British Embassy Deplomatic airway billluggage delivery service

P Review updated:

A certain Eric Powell Anderson who introduced himself as Executive consultant of Dunlop Oil and Marine Services Limitedin England, has communicated with me through a chatting at tagged.com site on the pretext that he is looking for a gf/wife. I never suspected any ill intention as he had been very kind and so I continue dealing with him. After a month, he decided to visit me in my country to get to know me better. But a week before the scheduled visit, he got an assignment to fly to Scotland to inspect some company orders. And so to keep up with the schedule, he decided to fly to my country from Scotland .To save himself from the hassles of carrying too many luggage, he contracted the services of BRITISH EMBASSY DEPLOMATIC AIRWAY BILL(accordingly a diplomatic haulage service company under the BRITISH EMBASSY IMMIGRATION AND HAULAGE DIRECTORATE in Edinburgh, ENGLAND) to ship the luggage to my address and that I should keep it until he arrives. But after shipping, he informed me that he enclosed a big amount of money in the luggage which he will spend during his visit. I got shocked and scared because i know that constitutes a money laundering act. But despite arguing with Mr. Powell, I cannot do anything because the luggage is on the way. Two days after, I got a call (bearing a Malaysia number) from MR. HENRY COLE, the delivery agent for Asian Region telling me that the luggage was held in custody by the Malaysian Customs Police because they found out about the money. He gave me instructions to pay a fine of US$ 1, 200.00 within 24 hours and that payment be made via Western Union Money Transfer to a certain ABRAHEM MOKENA (malaysian customs police) and they will release the luggage amicably without any charges. He further threatened me that if I will not pay, they will confiscate the luggage and have me and the sender, MrPowell arrested and charged in court. I immediately contacted Mr. Powell but he told me has no money at the moment because he was on a trip in another country and asked me to pay the fine first and that I can have it reimbursed once the luggage arrives from the money enclosed. That's when I suspected that this is a syndicated crime. I tracked down the name and address given to me of the companies DUNLOP AND OIL MARINE SERVICES LIMITED and found out that these are not existing. Am thankful that despite the panic, I remained compose and did the right thing of investigating further. So when Mr Powell and Mr. Henry contacted me again, I confronted them about what I have found out and they simply disappeared. Am sharing this to warn everyone.

    Same man who's e-mailing me since last week. This is the photo of the man. I don't know if this is the real photo of him. There are other pictures he sent me together with his, according to him, his daughter. Poor girl she's been used in this scam. He even uses GOD in his mails. Good thing I never give him any important infos about myself. Only my name & old photos. Poor guy!

    Sorry for what have happened to you guys and myself. I was so near to becoming a victim of said Mr. Billy Drake from Surrey, London.
    He was supposed to send me a package too that contains HP laptop, phone, jewelry box, a rose flower and cash of 5, 000 Euros... Unbelievable...He gave me his phone number. I gave him mine too. We exhanged e-mails and pictures. We spoke several times on the phone. Few minutes ago I conversed with him again. I asked for someonelse's name and he told me he was that person. Can't believed Billy Drake has not changed his phone number.
    Anyways, I have people that work at the US Embassy in Surrey and other parts of London and they are helping me investigate these scammers.
    Thanks for reading.

    The same cases wich have been commented here are happening me now with a man who says to have by name MICHAEL VIDMARK and who says to live in LIVERPOOL and to have a daugther who is 16 years old, besides until sent me photos of him and his probable daugther but I don't know if he and his probable daugther be really they or could exit. My case is being specially similar to the case comented by the Philippine woman. He started to win my trust but now I see his tentions aren't honests at all and he is getting a to make fraud now wanting to make me to pay by a penalty fee in Malaysia about 650US, due he without my authorization got to send me several gifts wich I didn't ask and said me now to be in Switzerland and to can't be able to do anything about that or to pay from there saying he hasn't money now. It's probably his false argument because all that story about the gifts sent to my adrress in Colombia aren't true. I think it's his pretext to get his ILEGAL CRIMEN OR FRAUDS. The probable handbag sent in the box, he said to introduce about 5000 US and other gifts not autorized for me. It's ilegal to send money or big amounts of money by couriers. That man said to send me a Box by this british embassy deplomatic airway delivery services including gifts as a rose flower, picture frame, necklace, perfume, handbag, laptop, video records, an ENGAGEMENT RING and after said me that he got introduce in the handbag 5000 US and all it without my authorization. According to him 2000 for me and 3000 for him since also said me that he would come to visit me to my country on May 25 of this year and 3000US would be necessaries for his expences of hotels and more in his visit. Until now the guy continue trying to contact me by the chat because he thinks that I'm a silly woman who finally will give to him the money wich he is asking me now 650USD but I don't think to contact to him anymore because reading all the stories here I'm now totally sure it's big fraud from his part...it must be a very organizated International net of SWINDLERS wich pretend to deceive and TO CHEAT to many innocent women as me all over the word, however It won't be in my case at all because he won't get anything about me. I have family in England who can contact to the embassy or police there and I'm of course DENOUNCING this Case HERE to prevent this type frauds or swindlers could continue happening to more innocent victims all over the world.

    Here I'm sending the photos wich sent me the sr MICHAEL VIDMARK and THE PROBABLE PHOTO OF HER DAUGTHER. He now is wanting that I send to KUALA LOMPUR IN MMALAYSIA BY WESTER UNION 650 US to pay a penalty fee to a sr named ABDUL IBRAHIM wich says to be the diplomatic agent for delivery services who is demanding that amount and who says to work in that region but I now know it's a total fraud, above all because I at any moment asked anything to him or authorized to him to send me money at all. I'm other innocent victim of this International net of Swindlers and for it I'm denouncing it here. Probably THIS must be happening to other women all over the world too and I'm trying to prevent it with my DENOUNCE here. Here are the photos sent by him but as it must be a fraud I don't know if he is really the person who appear in the photo, the same his probable daugther

    I get these all the time they crack me up! First of all, why would any government other than my own, be contacting me. UK, Nigeria, Ghana, WHAT????? Today's urgent email, OH MY GOD, someone has stolen my ATM card from of all places the UK. Are you kidding me? If just the shear content of email isn't obvious enough, just really read it, the spelling and grammar are hysterical. Dead give away .

    same thing almost happened to my sister...a man named peter kuruhog kenborg, looking for a good wife who can be trusted, supposedly sent gifts, 3 laptops, camera, tv, handbag and a rose w/c she doesn't ask.then a woman contacted her this afternoon telling her that her parcel has arrived and should pay 6 thousand nine hundred pesos at the custom in manila, to which she will send the money throiugh western union to a certain hannah lopez, that there's a money hidden in a certain small box worth 5thousand five hundred pounds and that he also sent his citibank atm card which has a 10 million dollars, so good to be true, but then we all believe that it's a scam...so we advised her not to fall prey into the hands of these con men-women and hope that many would be able to read this...again be careful...

    Well I think it's my case a 42-year-old Henry Allen Wilton is a colonel of the United States Navy, he's in Syria on a war mission and he wants to be my best friend and have a relationship if that's the case, He wants to know my country as soon as his mission is over. He told me that he found a box of 1, 000, 000 dollars and that it is not bad money but that he can not have it there only to send it to a family member and they have given him a time frame of 30 days and when August dies the money will be delivered to the government and then he will have lost his money. Then he will send me the money because I am his best friend and because the person who is more rationed, wants something serious with me. The money will be invested in profitable businesses here, it will become an orphanage, and it will live a happy life with me when I come to see the money to my country hahahahahha. Yesterday he sent me the invoice, but I was investigating the alleged agency and I found this page, and and I know they are the same, they still do not call me but it is obvious that I did not give them any money, besides I also felt scared because it is a lot of money 1, 000, 000 and that a stranger sends it to you, besides I do not have the money of the supposed commission and I would not either.
    if they call me I will tell them that I do not have money, that is what I was going to answer anyway and then I face them. this is your profile, be careful women
