Abbas Sharri / Eric Gram / Malaysian Custom Scam
I too would like to share my sad story of someone by the name of Abbas Sharri who conned my aunty in Jakarta. They met each other in Tagged (social networking website), he approached her by befriending her and tried to add her in Tagged. This happened three weeks ago around end of August 2010. He told her that he was a captain of a UK navy marine ship and has been cheated by his wife back in UK. Currently, his son who is only 6 years old is residing with his ex wife and her new husband. Abbas Sharri played my aunt's sympathy towards his dire situation and took pity on him and comforted him. But if a captain is always at sea, how can he contact her via yahoo messenger everyday?
On 2nd September 2010, Abbas Sharri informed my aunt that he will be sending over a parcel through a UK courier company whereby it consists of novels and money for her. The supposed parcel was addressed to her and her contact details was given to a courier guy by the name of Eric Gram, H/P: [protected]. This Eric called my aunt on 6th Sept to inform her that the parcel is stuck in KLIA as Malaysian Customs refuse to release the parcel. He asked my aunt to deposit the 'tax payments' to these 2 account numbers. 1. Baigaijav Undrakh (MS), CIMB A/C: [protected] and Ambank Account No: [protected]. Passport No: E0259057
Since she believed Abbas Sharri, she deposited 3 payments to these con artist who are lurking among us. All in all she has lost RM 73, 800 to these ###! I urge everyone to beware of any form of story that you hear from people online. I hope this story will prevent them from conning anymore women out there.
