Nigerian Reshipping Scam

by Yaumo
(Papa New guinea)

My aunt has been in contact with an "Eric J Peters" via phone and internet.


This "Eric" guy said that he is an engineer and lives in UK.

His contact number is 00447031899843.

After some time of being in contact with my aunt he said that he was sending her a package via a courier service called the "Sky-Line Express Courier Servce" with the contact number as "0060143679153".

The package contained a laptop and some assorted gifts.

Sometime later "Eric" then informed my aunt that the package was held up in Malaysia and due to the fact that the "Sky-Line Express Courier Servce" did not have any branch operating in Papua New Guinea the package will have to be hand delivered by one of their delivery officers.

A local delivery charge of USD$750.00 had to be paid for this service. The money also was to be wired to a "Michael Nelson
Mbezi".

The amount of USD$750.00 was sent via Western Union as adviced to the "Michael Nelson Mbezi" of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The money transfer was unsuccessfull as the receiver's name had been blacklisted by the Malaysian authorities. Contact was made via the "60143679453" number and a different name was given. This time a "Frnacis Daniel" acting as the Operating Manager of the "Sky-Line Express Courier Service". The money was successfully sent.

The courier company then responds and says that package contained money as it was detected by the scanners at the Kuala Lumpuar airport. The packakge was taken back and locked in some bond store.

In order to have it released a certain charge will have to be payed. "Eric" was notified and he appologized that he forgot to mentioned that he did put in some money in that package. My aunt that went ahead and wired the second charge via "Money Gram". "Eric" appologised sincerely and said he was out of UK as well and in a country called "Ukraine" working on some project.

Now that courier company has requested for another fee to be sent and it is the final fee to get through customs. "Eric" confimred by calling the courier services' head office in UK.

I personally think my aunt is a victim of a scam which is taking her money. I will advice her to hold off any further payments

There most be a way to stop thse people. Since I met Erick Peters and he tried to get moneyout of me( which he couldn't fortunately for me) I started to investigate all the links that could led me to the real Erick.

First of all his name was fake, he mentioned his mother's name was Sara, coincidently, when I enetered Ericks name linked to Sky line... there was a web page originated in the United Kingdom that is investigating this scam, and had followed the conection of the scamers, fron Ireland, UK, Nigeria nad Malasia.

In this page they mentioned a Sara Peters related to internet scams. This situation is frustrating. I don't think there is a way to get your money back.

May be if you present a complaint to wester union or which ever companey you used to send the money.

The best way to stop this is by prevention. We, who has pased through this kind of attack ( I consider this an attack to your integrity, dignity, privacy and of course to your money) most inform others about the risk of the internet relationships.

Why don't we go back to the old fashion way? Lets talk to actual people who we can actualy see and touch. I know in the past, many people find their true love through thse sites, but now it is the scammers territory.

They are like predators searching for new victims. Well they don't know that what goes around...comes around.

Lets stop this.

Nigerian dating scam
by: Eve

A similar situation happened with my aunt, actually. She was chatting online with a guy who introduced himself as Mark. He told her that he was travelling to New Zealand and that he'd send her a parcel when he gets there.

My aunt was notified that the parcel was held in Malaysia, and that she has to pay 520 dollars to get it shipped. After making the payment they informed her that she'll have to pay another $430 because the parcel contains money.

I believe it is a scam since supposed "mark" doesn't answer emails now and neither does skyline.

Do you think that the whole company is fake?

Is there any way to get the monet back?

Same fraud
by: Anonymous

WELL THIS IS AMAZING...THE SAME THING HAPPEND TO ME IN MARCH 2010..same modus operandis...same name Erick Peters...same package content and same route...malaysia..and to charge the $750.00 to Michale Nelson Mbezi - but with the difference I didnt send the money. The supposed Erick Peters told me to get the money elsewhere which I didnt.

What is most amazing about his thing is that Erick didnt change any of his operating system. He told me he was fron Ukrane...OMG... thse kind of people should be in jail. I'm sorry that your aunt got scammed - when I told Erick I didnt get the money I never heard of him again.

So now I always warn people about internet friendships
