Universal Express Delivery Limited / luggage delivery service

1 Schotland Review updated:

A certain ASMUND GIBSON who introduced himself as Marketing Manager of Global Marketing Company Ltd Scotland, has communicated with me through a social networking site on the pretext that he is looking for a gf/wife. I never suspected any ill intention as he had been very kind and so I continue dealing with him. After a month, he decided to visit me in my country to get to know me better. But a week before the scheduled visit, he got an assignment to fly to Austria to inspect some company orders. And so to keep up with the schedule, he decided to fly to my country from Austria.To save himself from the hassles of carrying too many luggage, he contracted the services of UNIVERSAL EXPRESS DELIVERY LIMITED (accordingly a diplomatic haulage service company under the BRITISH EMBASSY IMMIGRATION AND HAULAGE DIRECTORATE in Edinburgh, Scotland) to ship the luggage to my address and that I should keep it until he arrives. But after shipping, he informed me that he enclosed a big amount of money in the luggage which he will spend during his visit. I got shocked and scared because i know that constitutes a money laundering act. But despite arguing with Mr. Gibson, I cannot do anything because the luggage is on the way. Two days after, I got a call (bearing a Malaysia number) from MR. NELSON BECKS, the delivery agent for Asian Region telling me that the luggage was held in custody by the Malaysian Customs Police because they found out about the money. He gave me instructions to pay a fine of US$ 1, 150.00 within 24 hours and that payment be made via Western Union Money Transfer to a certain ABRAHEM MOKENA (malaysian customs police) and they will release the luggage amicably without any charges. He further threatened me that if I will not pay, they will confiscate the luggage and have me and the sender, Mr. Gibson arrested and charged in court. I immediately contacted Mr. Gibson but he told me has no money at the moment because he was on a trip in another country and asked me to pay the fine first and that I can have it reimbursed once the luggage arrives from the money enclosed. That's when I suspected that this is a syndicated crime. I tracked down the name and address given to me of the companies UNIVERSAL EXPRESS DELIVERY LIMITED AND GLOBAL MARKETING COMPANY LTD SCOTLAND and found out that these are not existing. Am thankful that despite the panic, I remained compose and did the right thing of investigating further. So when Mr. Gibson and Mr. Becks contacted me again, I confronted them about what I have found out and they simply disappeared. Am sharing this to warn everyone.

    We have exactly the same experience. I was about to receive today or until tomorrow a luggage full of Louis Vuitton bags, ladies watches etc from ASMUND GIBSON of Edinburg, Scotland who introduced himself as Marketing Manager of Global Marketing Co., Ltd. and he even said that he owns a 40% share in a hotel in Edinburg. He said he loves me and his mother approves of our relationship. I was able to talk to his mother and she was so sweet and loving. I didn't suspect any deceit in his intentions. But my sister was so insistent that I should not believe him at once because he might be a scammer. So I asked my niece to check the tracking number of the said shipment online, and to our dismay, your comment was the first item that came out. I really felt mad and disappointed this deceit happened to me. I immediately deleted him from my friends list and stopped all contacts with him. I hope our experience will serve as a warning to women especially Pinays who seems to be his favorite target for his modus operandi. GIRLS BE AWARE OF THIS GUY. DON''T TRUST ANYBODY WHO OFFERS YOU INSTANT MONEY AND LUXURIOUS LIFE AND A PROMISE OF LOVE. Your comment was very helpful and found it just in time before he can make any further step in this swindling scheme.

If you did, perhaps he changed name and bogus companies and now still continuing the same swindling scheme. I wish we can talk, how do i contact you? Am sure glad i posted this. Somehow it helped.

    i am currently talking to a guy whose name is MR. IDRIS JOHNSON with the same modus. he said he sent me jewelries, gold watches, laptop and a blackberry phone and a teddy bear with 25, 000GBP in it. Hesaid his mom approved of me as to be his future wife. He allegedly sent it via Universal Delivery Security Company.
    As i was waiting for the package..i kinda felt some kind of suspicion so i checked and googled it. and found about how it was a Scam. Just now my phone is ringing and a guy is starting to ask for money to be sent via western union for the immediate release of the parcel.
    Thanks God for letting me know beforehand. So girls out there...be careful.

    the reason why scammers are fooling those womans are because of they are too much involving themselves. i pity you all for this matter. but i also pity myself that u were involving my name. know your man first in order for u to be less fool. u womans are allowing man to fool u and thats what u get. but not all of us is after your money. for we have gained knowledge and degree from school that we can use to survive life. i am sorry for all of u. and may all of u wakes up from ur dreams. careful to ur man.

    I have a friend who became a victim of TONY BECHLEY lately. Just like the case of dvo lady, he also offered marriage and luxurious gifts. The sad thing was that she inform her friends already and now she doesn't how to explained to them about the scam incident. My friend is very smart but I can't believe that she fell on their trap.

    Its a good thing that she was not able to send the money that the "THE SWIFT GROUP" was asking her to pay. She began to doubt when she was told that the parcel contains 1 unit of blackberry phone, jewelries, ladies accessories and 2000 pounds in cash. The money according to the shipper ("The Swift Group") was not declared in the shipment so my friend was asked to pay for it.

    My friend is a frequent traveller in other countries because she has a good job and business. She knows very well that every item in a parcel that you're going to send should pay the corresponding tax and shipment cost. There is no way to forget that. I can't believe that a first world country such as the United Kingdom does not have a good scanner to scan the goods that will be shipped out of their country and only detected when it reached Malaysia? IMPOSSIBLE!

    The good side of it was that she learned her lessons not to trust anyone. Secondly, she discovered right away that the 'The Swift Group" shipper was not the real Swift Group due to different company logos.

    My friend is really smart and she deserves someone better. Sorry for Mr. TONY BENCHLEY and the rest of his group.
