TNT UK Courier / Fraud and cheating

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Hi there, I am really pissed that i was scammed by the microsoft promotions and the fake tnt courier service in the uk. I was scammed on september 4th 2008 by persons who claimed to be tnt dispatch officers and microsoft promo claim agents.

They called me everyday for three mths claiming they paid for part of my shipments... and that the parcel was being held in my country and i have to pay the difference of 1000us and it will be delivered to me the next day.

I was having cell phone problems causing me to lose contact with them for a month! When my cell was working again they told me the money is still there in my country being held by my government and i dont have much time left i paid them twice and now i hear nothing after asking for and update!

    TNT UK Courier - Fraud
    TNT UK COURIER
    United States

    It all started on Craiglist.com Best offer***MacBook Air*** 13.3 - $350 PostingID: 1739067978 This bad economy is forcing us to fault for this attractive deals online. Shame on those who take advantage of us. I spend my whole check that week for a Mac Air that I thought I would get for a lot less than what I can afford to pay. I hope no one else fall for this trap. Do not make any wire transation. Deal Locally...I felt for the trap and I lost my money. first email: Hi, The laptop is still available, but I'm currently in London, England. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States and I had to move at my sister in United Kingdom ( here I found a good job ) . The laptop is in perfect condition, and I will sell it only in US because here the warranty and the AppleCare are US registered. I am selling the laptop because I don't use it anymore. I work a lot with Windows XP Pro and this one can't run this Operating System. Click here : Apple_MacBook_Air to see some pics with the laptop so you can see the condition of the laptop. I bought the laptop 4 months ago and it still has 8 months of Apple transferable warranty remaining ( you can extend the warranty for one year on your name ). I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away. Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that: www.tnt.com/tnt.express.london.depot/third_party_service.html TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the laptop before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (on my expense). Let me know what you think.
