That if a reverse payment is made, and something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of the fund as stipulated in the draft since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing. With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled out.Forward the cost of mailing your draft with any of the courier channel cost you choose above to us.

Note that your Price is protected by a hardcover insurance policy by GEOTRUST INSURANCE COMPANY, which makes it impossible for us to deduct any amount from your winnings before it is Remitted to you.This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the Price and hence must be provided by you before your Price is transferred to you.

Please respond to this email by making a selection from the courier options above. Also attach a scanned copy of either your driver's license, international passport (photo page) or any other legally identifying document(Optional) while sending your option to us.

OPTION 2:BANK TO BANK TRANSFER

Condition: The cost of COT (commission of transfer) being charged by our transferring contracting bank, which is (£3,000 GBP) of the cash being transferred will be paid by beneficiary(winner) for account activation/COT. Note: That your Price is protected by a GEOTRUST INSURANCE COMPANY POLICY, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before it is remitted to you. This means that the above charges CANNOT be deducted from the Price and hence must be paid pending on the option selected.

Please, respond to this email by making a selection from the options above. Also attach a scanned copy of either your driver's license, international passport (photo page) or any other legally identifying document. Once again, Good luck and Congratulations.

    Not that I allowed this ridiculous attempt to scam me go any further than it being sent to me, but just for the hell of it, I decided to do a search on the sender, "TNT Couriers" to see what came up and I came across this location. So here is what I received from these attempted scammers. Hope it helps someone.

    Hola, yo también recibí una propuesta similar de la "Chevron" y otra de "Google Center", soy muy desconsiderados estos estafadores virtuales, porque juegan con las ilusiones de las personas, siempre apuntan a paises subdesarrollados donde la esperanza de ganar una suma como la que mencionan cambiaría en forma radical la vida de muchas personas que trabajan duro para sobrevivir día a día. Sería bueno poder desenmascaralos, ponerlos presos y que nos indemnicen a los que fuimos estafados en nuestra confianza!

    TREAT THIS AS MOST URGENT

    I have a question for: TNT Express

    My question is about:

    wrongly asccesed custom duty and exploitation of customer by compelling to pay abnormal
    extra ordinary highest handling charges



    Dear Sir,
    We are retail and wholesale opticians
    We had appointed TNT couriers to collect a parcel containing reading glasses 28 pieces

    from china.
    The Airway No is GD [protected] WW.
    The parcel was dispatched along with Proper Invoice.
    The total value of the parcel is $12 USD i.e approx INR 480.
    However for unknown and unspecified reasons it was accessed of value 6 times more than the

    original value i.e instead of Rs.480/= it was accessed as Rs. 2800 and duty was charged

    accordingly. Instead of Contacting Us for specifications regarding the Duty and assessment

    charges, TNT couriers had accepted the charges without even contacting us.It is TNT's

    Duty to have the assessment done strictly according to Invoice value and if not the client

    ( US ) should be informed for further instructions. The values incurred were totally

    unexpected very high.
    With the duty charged on 6 times the original amount, the octroi charges were levied on

    the higher amount too.
    More to add to their total atrocities they have charged a handling charges of Rs. 394.

    which is almost equal to the product value.
    On complaining for the wrongly charges and worst customer services, TNT Manager did not

    even try to resolve any of the problems and said nothing could be done.

    Here are the figures.

    Original Parcel value : Rs. 480
    Accessed value by customs ( without TNT informing us about the same ) : Rs. 2800
    Duty Charged :Rs. 412 ( It should have been Around Rs.82 )
    Octroi Charged: Rs. 177 ( iT should have been around Rs.32)
    Handling Charges: Rs. 394 ( No details provided on how such a high value was charged . The

    amount is almost equal to the total parcel value)
    Courier Charges : Approx. Rs. 2000

    Total charges that should have been occured on Original Value : Approx. Rs. 200 + Courier

    Charges
    Total charges that is charged on over assessment : Rs 1000 + Courier Charges
    i.e. More than 6 times the usual.
    As the reading glasses are necessary medical aid product and they are very very low priced

    .we do not know how TNT agreed on 6 times the assessment value without intimating us for

    the same and more over to that collecting abnormal extremely highest handling charges ?

    I to have received the same kind of notice from UK saying I have won alot of money if I send them a wire transfer which is alot of money. The courier service is TNT and I have contacted them several times with questions. They want a wire transfer and or by banking account information to confirm the funds. It is very tricky. When you contact them by email they get right back with you. It's so wrong to fool people like this. I have saved their messages to me. If it will help I can forward them. How can they do this legally or not?

    I have received several of these types of emails and I find it very distressing that such things are allowed to happen. TNT Couriers (the real company)must be getting a lot of inquiries and it must be affecting its reputation etc as these scam artists use convincing letters to people. I'm on a pension so could easily have fallen for their trap as like most pensioners money is tight. I hope that soon there will be legal action that can be taken by tnt to stop these scammers before some pensioner or other person who can least afford it is ripped off by these people
