AIR PARCEL EXPRESS & VICTOR JOHNSON / Scam & Cheating
Dated 31/10/2008, I was informed by a friend in Tagged named Victor Johnson that a package was arranged to me through AIR PARCEL EXPRESS in UK. He highlighted that there will be VAT and Tax involved which he could not process payment in UK, which will require to pay upon reaching Singapore.
Dated 03/11/2008, I received an email from Muhamad, AIR PARCEL EXPRESS (Branch office) in Malaysia, confirmed me that the package is here in KL and require to pay RM2454 in order to process delivery through DHL Express, as they are the sister company of DHL.
After one day clearing the payment thru WesternUnion at Singapore post, I have received another email from Muhamad, claiming that DHL officer is holding to the package as there are illegal items and can only be clear by a payment of RM1500.
Till to date I have yet received my parcel from AIR PARCEL EXPRESS and Victor Johnson has disappear in thin air.
This is a well plotted scam from Victor Johnson, this is unlikely his real name and there are a lot more cheater like him in the internet.
According to DHL and UPS, there are no cases where parcel require to clear payment upon reaching the destination.
Just be careful and never make payment through WesternUnion, as the payment is un-traceable and you are likely to fall into a scam case.
