BRITISH COURIER WORLD SERVICE scam!! / Scam
I met this man (ADAMS WILLIAMS, he says) online. After 3 months of "dating" he proposed to me and said he was sending me a package from London (he lived in Scotland) with money, a diamond ring, and other gifts as a token of his affection. He gave me a tracking number to this courier and the package was sent to Malaysia (that's not even on the way to my country) and retained there. I then received the email posted below stating I had to pay 700USD go get my package. When I contacted my "fiancee" he said that he was in Canada, and said I had to pay for it so I wouldn't lose the package. I started doubting the whole issue, so I asked him to send me the money via Western Union, and he tried to manipulate me using my feelings to convince me to pay the money. When I refused, he acted offended, and then I never heard of him again.
So I post this so other girls are aware of the frauds that are found online, and to be careful with them.
I researched online and this Courier does NOT exist. The name Adams Williams is a dead man online. I never even saw a clear picture of him. So.. beware..
