Air Parcel Express / Scam and cheating!

1 Singapore Review updated:
Contact information:

On dated 08/04/2008, I ordered a hp laptop from a guy named jack kenny william from the internet. he told me has arranged a shipment through air parcel express in uk. I request him to forward me an airway bill and so I can track my parcel in singapore.

On dated 10/04/2008, I received an email from jack kenny william, confirmed me that the shipment was sent out at uk time 08/04/2008 @ 05:55:01pm. he also attached me an airway bill from air parcel express (epx) located at the address of 53, saltoun place, fraserburg, aberdeenashire ab43 9ry.

On dated 11/04/2008. I received a phone call from air parcel express (branch office) in malaysia. claiming that my parcel was hold in the malaysia custom, and demand me to pay myr 3, 430.00. I then, rang to air parcel express in uk and was told that my parcel is in malaysian custom now. I was instructed by the uk office staff that I have to pay the amount to an account officer name as mr makeba kelechi. I then went to western union to make the payment, till to date I have yet received my parcel from air parcel express. this is a scam to me.

    Yesh, same person, same thing happen to me. ASking me to pay the monies, which I refused to pay, since there is a lot of loopholes in the whole issue. Then I surf on Net and find this complaint of yours. So it is fraud.

    I have received a similar scam. Was told by a Mr. Catim William that he had sent me a laptop under:

    Order Number: APX:576543
    Ref No: APX:11052006/21

    On 29 Apr, I received an email and a call from Mr. David Smith - Head, Customer Proposition,
    Air Parcel Express Couriers, United Kingdom & Asia mentioning that I have to pay RM3, 120.00 being customs duty as the shipment is being held at Malaysian customs.

    Mr. David Smith then SMS me and said that I have to make a transfer money via Western Union to an account officer, Ms. Sabariah Bte Ahmad, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia before they can express release the shipment to me in Singapore.

    I've even checked through it's website but there is no such reference number..!

    I was fortunate that I saw this complaint board and never made the payment otherwise it would have cost me SGD1344.72 which is a lot of money to me. Just want to remind everyone to be careful of such scams...

    Yeap! I just encounter this today (29 Apl'08).

    I just felt it too skeptical and they requesting me to paid a clearance of RM 4000+ to an account in order to release the parcel due to some custom violation.

    Of couse, am not going to do it, and instead went to do some search on this. Immediatly, I found out this post and some other sites. And it gives me more solid confirmation that it not trustable.

    Conclusion:
    I requested them to send back the parcel to the sender, in which am not accepting the parcel.

    its same thing happen to me but i'm very lucky cause i'm so easy to cheat especially about money. Someone name eric howard friend from myspace call me and told me he have suprise for me where he will sent me one package it was hp laptop. so i'm waiting one thing i was things its really imposibble to receiving a package from uk to malaysia just in 3 days... I know it cause the faster will be in not 3 days. But just wait till after 3 days one guy call me and his name gary white. its same happen with other person who was cheating before where that person will tell that things arrived already but stuck in kuala lumpur airport custom. that are stupid where that guy ask me to pay about RM2, 450.98 crazy for that price better i'm buy that laptap by myself. so thats why i try to checkout every thing about that air parcel and suddenly i read where have a comment about air parcel express. so i'm so happy cause they cant cheat me but hope so other person also must think twice or more if someone ask you to pay...

    I definitely agree... it happened to me too... just this morning(May07 '08) someone called me and said he's from Air Parcel Express-Malaysia Branch that there's a package from UK from Mr. Catim Williams. i met and chatted this guy from myspace.com . Mr. Catim said he will send me a gift a laptop with 4000 pounds inside. Its so surprising dont u think? Now, APX kept it on hold because of the money content which exceeds their limit. I'm not stupid enough to believe that one can send an amount of 4000 pounds inside an HP laptop box. and that i have to settle an amount of RM3, 120.00 so they will release the package.

    I was really curious so i called this Catim, and its really funny coz he does not sound like British nor American like he said he was... i can hardly understand what he was saying!!!

    In short, all this was a cheat. And I will not be spending money for this one. I learned my lesson. Everyone should be careful…

    yes, I agree. 4 days ago there is guys send me email and he said he had sent to me the Laptop. after 4 days I ask him true or. then not long he call me, he had sent it. then not long someone call me he said from Air Parcel Express, they said my package in Malaysia now, and they ask me to pay RM 3, 120.00 But Im not stupid so I ask to the guys to paid it first then i will pay it to him if the package I got. But he have many reason, I said to him I dont hv money to pay and he ask me to borrow money from my frien. He think I'm stupid?? I knew him from tagged.com.
    So becarefull frieands...

    Then I sent him email and I say you are LIAR and Cheater

    Wow. When I first saw the initial complaint here, I was the first to relate to the NEVER RECEIVED's encounter. Who would have thought that there are so many others involved.

    By the way, I reckon that the guy who called is an INDIAN Malaysian guy. Its in the numbers used.

    I guess there is never such thing as free things in the world eh?

    DEAR VALUED CUSTOMER,
    As I have informed you we do not render cash on delivery services, it is unfair for you to think that we are not trustworthy.When you cotacted us I was the one that informed you that we have a parcel to be delivered to a Anne Somers but the destination was not Ireland but America.I contacted the lottery company and had them rectify the mistake that was done because the draft/cheque was in dollars and not euros they rectified it and I informed you, but there was an error which was caused out of the somany customers I have to attend to and .As I have informed you if you will not pay the charge for delivery then please inform us immediately so that your parcel can be returned.Thank you.
