Globelink Security And Courier Malaysia / FAKE PARCELS
i was almost a victim here!
i am refering to this fake courier "Gentle Express Courier" and " GLOBELINK SECURITY AND COURIER-MALAYSIA.
i met a guy thru TAGGED, he introduced himself as a bachelor from London who is desperately looking for a wife to marry. i was fascinated with the manner he talks, he seemed real. we chatted for quite some time until he told me that he is coming over to singapore to meet me! and before that he wants me to make a 1 week hotel reservation for him. he said he is sending a parcel for me containing gadgets such as brand new palm top computer, digital nokia celfone, jewelries, and cash worth 5000 pounds!
i almost believe it was real coz he sent me the "confirmation" from the courier"...it looked genuine.
after 2 days, i received a phone call from Malaysia from a certain man named STEVE BROWN..he sent me an email explaining that the parcel has been put on hold by the Malasian Customs because it contains cash. So in order to claim the package, i must pay the necessary fees (clearance fees / administrative charges) amounting 3, 400.RM
at this point, i noticed something is wrong. The erroneous typing, in the amount to be paid and the gramatical errors made me think that this is some kind of a fraud.
when this MR BROWN called me again, i can't help but curse him saying " hey! i don't have time for this bully ###"..
i told him that i don't have the money to pay them so they better send the package back to MR JEFFERSON BILL (or to MR FRANK COLLINS)!
may this experience serve as a lesson for everybody, that to never trust anyone u meet online especially concerning your personal information.
