Spam and phishing mail

Scammers’ delivery service: exclusively dangerous

Well-known companies and brands are favorite targets for fraudsters. After all, it is much easier to get people’s attention with the use of a popular name, so scammers have more chance of trapping a gullible user.

In this article, we will analyze phishing and malicious emails sent by fraudsters that claim to come from international delivery services. The most popular of these are DHL (Germany), FedEx and United Parcel Service (USA), TNT (Netherlands). All of these companies are international, with millions of customers using branches in major countries all over the world. They provide similar services, so scammers use the same methods and techniques in their fraudulent mails.

The phishers’ goals include:

  1. Theft of confidential data (bank card credentials, logins and passwords from personal accounts), mainly with the help of fake web pages imitating official pages of the site. In a phishing attack users provides the fraudsters with their personal data by filling the fields on fake sites or sending them via email.
  2. Installing various malicious programs on users’ computers. These programs are used not only to monitor user online activity and steal personal information, but also to organize botnets to distribute spam and launch DDoS attacks.

Headings of fraudulent emails

The From field

Structurally, the  address in the From field looks like this: Sender Name . To confuse recipients, scammers can change parts of the address and often make it look very similar to an official address of the delivery service.

There are several groups of email addresses seen in fraudulent emails:

  1. Email addresses which closely resemble companies’ legitimate public addresses. Generally, they use the name of the company (DHL INC, TNT COURIER SERVICE, Fedex, etc.) as the sender name. The name of the mailbox often includes the words info, service, noreply, mail, support which are typical of email addresses used to send official notifications. The server domain name often has a real or very plausible company domain.
  2. FraudShipment_1

  3. Addresses which do not resemble legitimate company addresses. The sender name still reflects the company name (FedEx, DHL Service, FedEx.com) but the domain name usually belongs to a free email service or an absolutely different company. The email address could be taken from a real user (taken from public sources or hacked mailboxes) or automatically generated addresses. The latter usually appear as a random sequence of letters, words and numbers.
  4. FraudShipment_2

  5. Addresses that resemble e-mail addresses of company employees. The sender name may contain the name and surname of a supposed employee, or the company name, or a position (courier, manager, etc). The name of the email box usually contains the same name and surname as the sender name because any difference in the data may alert the recipient to a fraudulent email. Either the real company domain or other domains not related to delivery companies might be used as a domain name.
  6. FraudShipment_3

  7. Addresses which only indicate the sender’s address without a name.
  8. FraudShipment_4

While analyzing sender address, remember that scammers do not need to hack the company servers to use the real company domain in the From field. They can simply insert the necessary domain name of the server into the From field.

The Subject field

The subject of the fraudulent mail should capture the imagination of recipients and encourage them to open the message, but it also needs to be plausible. Therefore spammers choose common phrases typical of official notifications from delivery services. After sending a parcel or a document, customers worry about its successful delivery and try to follow its progress by reading any notification from a delivery service.

The most popular subjects are:

  1.  Subjects related to the delivery/shipment (shipment notifications, delivery status, shipping confirmation, shipment documents, delivery information, etc.).
  2. Examples:

    FraudShipment_5

  3. Subjects related to tracking shipments, order information and invoices (the tracking number of the shipment, tracking the shipment, etc.).
  4. Examples:

    FraudShipment_6

  5. Subjects related to notifications about messages and accounts (creation and confirmation of accounts, new messages, etc.).
  6. FraudShipment_7

The design of the email

Scammers pay special attention to the design of the email. Their main goal is to make message as believable as possible. After all, if it looks suspicious, a potential victim will most likely delete it despite the attractive subject and plausible sender address. Let’s analyze the basic techniques that fraudsters use to make emails look legitimate.

Graphic design

All major international companies have their own corporate style, including wordmarks, graphic trademarks, corporate fonts, slogans and color schemes. These are used on the official website, in mailings and commercials, and in other design components. Scammers use at least some of these elements when designing fraudulent emails to make them look convincing. Usually phishers focus on logos because these elements are unique to each company and is an immediate identifying mark.

Examples of DHL company logos used in fraudulent emails.

FraudShipment_8

Let’s take a closer look at these examples. It’s immediately obvious that the second example is very different from the company’s official logo. Another sign of a forgery is the difference in size between the false logo and the original, as seen in the fourth example where the logo takes almost a third of the message. Here the plan is probably to attract the reader’s attention with a large bright picture rather than plain text. That also explains why the phishing links appear in a larger font: users should respond to it immediately, without trying to read the small print.

In the first example, the scammers are trying to copy the design from the official site (a very popular method). However the logo is placed on the right-hand side rather than on the left. Also they are using a color blend for the logo background rather than making it single-color. The logo in the third example most closely imitates the original DHL logo: the scammers have tried to match its size and design. It’s not really all that difficult to make a logo for a fake notification: there are plenty of versions of the original image available online in several formats, including vector graphics. In addition to the logo the fraudsters use the color spectrum chosen by the company in its official resources and mailings. For example, for DHL it is a combination of yellow and red.

The text design

In most official emails we find a number of set phrases, especially when it comes to standard notifications generated and sent automatically. These messages often include contacts and links to the official resources of the sender. Therefore, to make the text of the fake email look like an original notification from a delivery service the fraudsters use:

  1. Standard phrases typical of official mass mailings: Please do not reply to this email, This is automatically generated email, please do not reply, All rights reserved, Diese Versendung ist automatisch, Bitte beantworten Sie diese nicht, This communication contains proprietary information and may be confidential. Questo e’ un email automatico, Si prega di non rispondere, etc.
  2. FraudShipment_9

  3. Links to the official page of the company. Not all links contained in the fraudulent email are phishing – spammers may also use the links which really lead to the official resources on order to make their emails look legitimate and bypass spam filtering.
  4. FraudShipment_10

  5. Contact for feedback. The fraudsters often indicate the contact information of the sender or the company (name, surname, position, office address). These contacts might be real or fictitious.
  6. FraudShipment_11

The content of the email

When fraudsters send out fake emails convincing readers that it is a real message is only part of the battle. The next step is to persuade the potential victim to do what the scammer requires, such as providing personal information or installing a malicious file. This is where psychology comes into play, and the email content is the main tool.

In fraudulent notifications allegedly sent on behalf of delivery services often use the following tricks:

  1. Notifications of various problems (eg. unsuccessful delivery, lack of information, wrong address, no recipient at the delivery address). These phrases are usually related to the delivery since the companies in question are in the service sector. Therefore, a logistics company warning of a problem with a delivery doesn’t prompt any suspicion, especially if the email contains some details of the situation.
  2. FraudShipment_12

  3. A demand to do something or face some consequence. For example, “collect your parcel within 5 days otherwise it will be returned to the sender”.
  4. The scammers use deadlines like this to make recipients react immediately. The phishers hope that users will be so worried about losing the parcel or paying extra costs that they won’t hesitate to provide personal details or open a suspicious attachment.

    FraudShipment_13

  5. Phrases about the content of an attachment or link (invoices, detailed information, documents).
  6. Users are unlikely to open unknown attachments or follow unknown links. That’s why scammers imitate official websites and present malware as a document with information a parcel. In addition, if the text of the notification states that the attachment contains, for example, a consignment document, the malicious archive will have a similar name, such as “consignment.zip.” This applies to phishing links as well – scammers name their links with an appropriate phrase from the text, such as “shipping information”.

    This simple trick is intended to reassure recipients that the attachment or link is perfectly legitimate.

    FraudShipment_14

  7. Phrases about the need to do something (follow a link, open an attachment, print out a file, etc.).
  8. Assuming the fraudsters have convinced the recipients that the email is real, the next step is to tell the victims how to solve their problems. Fulfilling these instructions is the ultimate goal of the fraudulent email. Here it is important for the scammers not just to tell recipients what they need to do, but to make them understand correctly what is written in the message. To avoid any misunderstanding on the part of the recipients, messages often contains detailed instructions about what to do.

    FraudShipment_15

How the text might change

Cheating the user is not the only thing scammers have to do. They also need to bypass spam filters and deliver the email to the email boxes of potential victims. One of the most popular and long-used methods to bypass filtering is to change text fragments within the email. Modern programs designed to send out spam messages include ample opportunities to generate multiple changes in the text. The text of a message which varies from email to email makes the email unique, while different personal information specified within one mailing (such as the number of the shipment, the form of the address, the dates) helps to convince recipients that the email is intended for them. In addition, the fraudsters can send out emails designed in the same style for several months – they only need to change some elements in the text.

Fraudulent notifications from delivery services can change:

  1. The information about the order/shipment, including the tracking number of the shipment, delivery dates, etc.)
  2. Contact details, sender names and company names. Some mass mailings provide an e-mail address or a phone number of a company representative for feedback. This particular data changes from email to email. In addition, names of company representatives and even company names themselves may also vary.
  3. The name of the attachment. It mainly refers to malicious attachments which names vary in messages within one mass mailing while these different names hide one and the same malicious program.
  4. Links. In phishing emails and emails with malicious attachments scammers often specifically change the addresses of the links, masking them with the help of different URL shorteners. Most of these links are quickly blocked by current antivirus programs.
  5. Phrases indicating numbers and dates. These can refer to timetables (days, hours), sums of money and dates (day and month)
  6. The greeting. Here spammers generally use the email address and/or the name of the recipient. Sometimes they use generic expressions (Dear client, Dear customer, etc.) instead.
  7. Other text fragments. Some words are replaced with other phrases that have a similar meaning so the general sense of the sentence remains unchanged.

Let’s analyze some examples of changes in the text of fraudulent emails.

FraudShipment_16

Below are some emails from yet another mass mailing.

FraudShipment_17

Fake pages

To steal personal information from users, scammers create phishing HTML pages which partially or completely copy the official website of a company. If victims of fraud enters their personal information (bank details, usernames and passwords) on this page, that data immediately falls into the fraudsters’ hands.

To mask the links leading to phishing websites the fraudsters often use popular free URL shorteners. In addition, most services offer customers the ability to view the statistics on the short link which tells fraudsters more about the number of clicks on any links etc. Phishing pages can be located on specially registered domains which usually have a short life span as well as on compromised domains whose owner may not even be aware that the web site is being used for fraudulent purposes.

Let’s analyze a fake email sent on behalf of FedEx in which recipients are asked to update their account information. The text of the email contains a link to the official website of the company while the real address to which the user is redirected is nothing like the legitimate page and is located on a free URL shortener service. This becomes obvious when you hover on the link.

FraudShipment_18

After clicking the link, users get to a fraudulent page imitating the official website of FedEx, where they are asked to enter their logins and passwords to access their accounts. Once the users fill in the fields and click “Login”, the entered information is transmitted to the scammers who can then access the victims’ personal accounts. The menu tabs and other links on the phishing page are often inactive, so clicking on them will not take users to the appropriate page. However, in some cases, phishers imitate all links on the page so that users do not have any doubt about its legitimacy. Sometimes the design of the page imitates the official site but does not copy it completely. If you have a closer look at the details, you will see some differences between the designs of the real and the fake pages. However, most users do not pay attention to small details and this carelessness helps the scammers to steal personal information.

FraudShipment_19

Below is yet another example of an email sent on behalf of FedEx. This time it contains a malicious link.  The email informs recipients that delivery is impossible because of missing information. And now users have to follow the specified link for verification.

FraudShipment_20

The link leads to a fraudulent page where potential victims are invited to download a program that will supposedly check whether they are really going to receive a parcel. Naturally, the program turns to be the well-known Zeus Trojan, which helps the fraudsters to access the computer and all the personal information on it.

FraudShipment_21

Scammers might not only include a phishing link in the body of the email, but also attach an HTML phishing page designed to steal personal data. However this use of HTML attachments as phishing pages is unusual for fraudulent mailings sent on behalf of delivery services.

Fraudulent emails in different languages

To increase the audience of recipients and customers, spammers are mastering new languages. In addition to traditional English and German, current spam traffic includes emails in Hebrew, Albanian and other languages​​ which were found in advertising and fraudulent mailings a few years ago. For example, you may come across fake notifications from international delivery services written in Italian and Dutch. These emails do not have any special features that distinguish them from English- or German-language messages – to cheat users, the fraudsters resort to the same tricks.

For example, this Italian-language fake notification from FedEx tells users to confirm their identity by following a fraudulent link.

FraudShipment_22

Yet another mass mailing in Italian contained a malicious archive which included the Zeus/Zbot Trojan used to steal personal data. The fraudulent email claimed that the user profiles on the website had been updated and there was more detailed information about it in the archive.

FraudShipment_23

Another fake notification written in Dutch on behalf of TNT informs recipients that new accounts have been formed for them, with details in the attachment. The archive attached to the email contains Backdoor.Win32.Andromeda, a malicious file that allows the scammers to control the infected computer without the user knowing.

Malware in fraudulent emails

Spam is one of the most popular ways of spreading malware and infecting computers on the Internet. Attackers have various tricks to make victims install malicious software on their computers. Email traffic includes a variety of private emails, such as wedding invitations, dating offers and other similar messages. However, fake notifications from well-known companies and brands providing different services remain the most popular cybercriminal trick. International delivery services are also used by spammers as a cover for malicious spam.

Malware spread in fake notifications from delivery services is divided into:

  1. Trojan programs developed to perform unauthorized operations in order to delete, block, modify or copy data, to disrupt computer or network performance. Trojans distributed in spam include Backdoors, Trojan-Downloaders, Trojan-Proxies, Trojan-PSWs, Trojan-Spies, Trojan-Bankers and others
  2. Worms, malicious programs capable of unauthorized self-proliferation on computers or computer networks. Those copies go on to spread themselves further.

What is dangerous about malicious programs?

  1. They can steal usernames and passwords from users’ accounts, as well as financial or other information sought by the attackers.
  2. They can create botnets for distributing spam, DDoS attacks and other criminal activity
  3. They can provide fraudsters with control over victim computers, including the ability to run, delete or install any files or programs.

Current malicious programs integrate broad-ranging fraudulent functionality. In addition, some malicious programs can download other malware, providing additional opportunities. These might include stealing usernames and passwords entered in the browser or seizing remote control over the whole computer.

Malicious objects in fraudulent notifications can be embedded directly in the email or downloaded from a link provided in the body of the message. The most dangerous thing about it is that malware can be run and installed without users being aware or installing any software themselves. Typically, malicious ZIP (less often RAR) files enclosed in fraudulent emails have an executable .exe extension.

How to recognize phishing emails

Below are a number of features that can help to identify a fraudulent email.

  1. The sender address. If the sender address includes a random sequence of letters, words or numbers, or the domain has no connection with the official address of the company, the emails should undoubtedly be considered fraudulent and deleted without opening.
  2. Grammar and spelling mistakes. Wrong word order, incorrect punctuation, grammar and spelling mistakes can also be a sign of a fraudulent mailing.
  3. Graphic design. Scammers are doing their best to make the email look very similar to the original. To this ends they are trying to imitate other companies’ corporate styles using some of their elements such as color schemes and logos. Inaccuracies and noticeable design errors are among the signs of a fake email.
  4. The content of the email. If the recipient of the email is asked under various pretexts to urgently provide or confirm personal information, download a file or a link – especially while being threatened with sanctions for not doing so – the email may well be fraudulent.
  5. Links with different addresses. If the address of the link specified in the body of the email and address of the actual link to which you are redirected do not match, you are definitely looking at a fraudulent email. If you are viewing your email from the browser, the actual link can be usually seen in the bottom left of the browser window. If you use an email client, the actual link can be displayed in a popup window if you hover the cursor over the link in the text. Fraudulent links can also be attached to a text phrase in the email.
  6. Attached archives. Generally, ZIP and RAR archives are used by cybercriminals to hide malicious executable EXE-files. Therefore, you should not open these archives or run the attached files.
  7. Lack of contacts for feedback. Legitimate emails always provide contact information for feedback – either the company or the sender’s personal contacts.
  8. Form of address. Fraudulent emails do not necessarily use the first name or the surname to address the recipient; sometimes a universal form of address (“client”, etc.) is used.

    1. irene

      Same experience a man named chung hee sent me a friend request on Instagram and i accept his request then he messaged me saying thank you for accepting him. After that we had a lot of conversation until he ask me if i have WhatsApp account and i just give him my account on Whatsapp we continue our conversation their until one day he said he want to go shopping and buy stuff for me. At first i refuse to accept his offer but then again he told me that he just to give me a gift for a better friendship so i let him do that. He asked my personal information saying that it will be needed in the delivery company. So i give him the data he needs after that he sent me a receipt on the said Courier including the reference of the package it looks real so i didn’t doubt him. he also send pictures and videos of the stuff he buys for me. He told me I jus need to wait 14 hours before the luggage will arrive in the Philippine. So after that i got an email from the courier company naming H&B Logistics Diplomatic courier service saying that the luggage already arrived in the Philippines and in order for them to deliver it immediately i need to pay 3500 for clearance fee and i did what they told i send my payment through gcash account. After that i received a message in Whatsapp demanding me to pay another 3k for the Anti money laundering certificate because their is cash inside the luggage and if i don’t send the payment immediately they said i will be get arrested

      1. Reni

        Same thing happened to me.. like because he was telling me that he wants me to get gift for his huge oil project that he had in Turkey, so he was like he put 15 000 USA dollars inside of the package.. so I had to pay for like around 1 200euros. and if i wasnt able to pay whole price I could pay 600euros. but since I havent send any money.. They scanned the money and he started to telling “the company that delievers package” kept telling me that I will go to jail and that I have to pay extra fee now around 2000 euros. So as i got the message my “friend” about it he automatically blocked me on the WhatsApp.. So I did some researching about the address they gave me in email. As it seems the address does not exist at all. And they are keep on messaging me on email and asking money. How can I stop getting emails from them? Thanks for the help.
        The company for delievery that was used from the person is Express VL – CARGO
        E mail: expressvlcargo53(at)gmail.com which doesnt match with the real side of the Express cargo company

Then he told me told i need to pay first the $250 before recieving his luggage. He also send me some many proof that his luggage was on process already but its kinda weird because why i need to give money first. Anyone could answer me if this is scam?

    I wish I would have come across this before. A week ago a white man friend requested me on IG by the name (@jacksmart000)we began having conversation and later he asked for my number he later chatted me on whatsapp with a UK NUMBER WITH THE CODE(+44). Thinking that I was the luckiest woman on earth finding a white man I hadn’t seen it all untill this guy after a long chat of knowing each other he just told me he is heading to a supermarket what should he get me? He asked, and so I answered anything nice he will get. So he told me to send him my address and full names so I did,he then told me he will send the parcel immediately and I’ll receive it the next day cause he was going to use DELTA CARGO COURIE COMPANY. The next day came and I received a call in the morning by a guy who claimed to be working in the office so he demanded 20,000ksh for delivery and custom fee, so I did my best and sent the money then after some minutes he called again and asked me to send another 15,000ksh cause he released their is money in that parcel which is illegal to be sent through as part of the parcel. Mind you this mzungu guy after going to supermarket he sent me a list of what he had bought me it was as follows :

    A gold jewelry
    Diamond necklace
    I Phone
    Hand bags
    Rolex watch
    A ring
    And an envelope of (30,000pounds)which in kenyan money is almost 4 million. I was a happy person on earth not having any doubt. So the guy from the office told me that their is alot of money here you are supposed to send another 15,000 as a government mandate to allow this money to be delivered to. I started hustling seriously until when I approached lots of people about it and told me their is nothing like that, and that it was a scum it was still hard for me to believe. But now as we were communicating with this “mzungu” and telling him the office is demanding money from he kept on insisting that I should just send them for the parcel to be released cause it has lots of expensive goods,of which he was very convisable. Only after realizing this office guy was a scum because he started becoming so rude cause I was not sending the 15k.On the other hand the mzungu was insightful now and then that I should send the money. So this morning he asked me if the office called me I decided to lie by telling him no cause I had already started sensing that something is wrong. After some minutes he got back and told me but the office is just telling me that they have called you. I became a little bit bitter by digging in asking him questions and when he found out am now on the lime light he ended up blocking me. BE ALERT AND AWARE OF THIS BUSTARDS GUYS. IT WAS A GOOD LESSON LEARNT IN A HARD WAY AND THEY ARE MOSTLY USING LADIES!!

      Thanks a lot that you have shared this story!
      I have almost the same story. Handsome man with UK phone nr, almost the same e-mail address with …001@gmail.com
      Just I got an e-mail from Zippy Courier Express (not an existing company) that I need to pay 1200 USD fee + container clean up. This is where things started to get suspicious and I stated to search on web and findr you comment + this page:
      https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2014/12/package-delivery-scam-delivered-your-inbox?page=4
      Don’t pay anything to them and please don’t trust in this “handsome” man.

        I have email at Express Global shipping Company that i have a package from my friend .but the shipping company ask me to pay a shipping fee if 48hrs.delivery i must fee$15,000 USD.but if i choose 72hrs.$11,000 USD including tha tax the last economic deliveries 96hrs.the shipping company demand $5,000 USD.i know its a SCAM because the legit shipping company did’nt demand a huge amount to pay for shipping fee.i know if the package arrived at the airport they need to exray the package but if had a commercial the customs examined the items and the customs examiner is the only person who value the tax it defend the items when custom examined.the shipping company have no right to collect a very huge amount as a shipping only SCAMMERS demand the huge amount.why so many people SCAMMERS at dating site at first they are so good but they had bad intention if we Trust him.Ladies Beware of the Dating Apps so many SCAMMERS there.Don’t Trust to someone else.Don’t be a victim of a SCAMMERS.

    2. Besashiele

      Oh my!! We have the same experience. A Thai guy chatted on me, so we confabulate a lot and on the next day, he asked me to give my line number or whatsApp number. According to him he wanted to have a private conversation. He also promised to call me using WhatsApp. After our long conversation, he asked me about what cellphone I’m using, and anything I want. He wanted to buy and shopped for me. he sent me videos and pictures. After that, he also told me everything that he already sent it to the company; then asked my address, and told me that there is money inside the package, too. So, I gave him my real name, address. I was so sincere on responding on his chats. However, there were doubts on my mind and i started to ask him because he told me to prepare 15,000 pesos. borrow and when my package has been delivered I have to go to the bank convert the money and pay my debt. Now, I told him it should never be like that. He suddenly got mad. he sent a picture of receipt. I keenly looked at the details, and I realized different name were indicated on the receipt. On the next morning, This company, called me. They wanted me to pay, of course I argued and report it to my Thai boyfriend. I was puzzled with his reaction. He was not panic nor worried about his package. I still keep on chatting with him, and response as is I truly believe it. … I sent him a lot of message but till now, he didn’t make any responses..

    5. Kecey

      Kecey. This happened to me recently a guy he is a medic gynae in his profile pic keeps changing showing he is a doctor with stethoscope. We started talking before we know it we are friends. I actually informed him my birthday was coming up and I didn’t ask for anything. He said he will surprise me and I will love the surprise. My birthday was 6july so on 3rd he woke up texted me he is going to shop for me, I didn’t ask what he was going to shop he said it was a surprise.. he sent me picturebof package but it wasn’t clear oh my gosh my mind was not working clearly to even ask why the photo wasn’t clear it was in a big box. On 4yh July my package arrived. I was called to pay 17k who was I I had saved some money I paid without asking myself questions after sometime I receive a text via WhatsApp app why I allowed to be send such huge alot of money. Huuh I was shocked 20000 pounds. I called the guy and asks h if he did send money he said yes and put it in a handbag that it was s surprise he wanted me to use care for myself before he visits me oh my gosh . So they asked for 65k for clearance certificate who was I I sent because toy head I was I have 20000 pounds coming that day I don’t know where my gut feelings was. My savings oh no after I paid then received a text saying the back has been informed I have huge sum of money , I need to pay 128k to clear that’s where is started being suspicious and they threatened I will be arrested if not and I’ll not received my package. That day I cried I was at work I didn’t think cleary. I called the guy and told him the whole story to my surprise he told me to pay so that I receive my surprise oh my gosh I paid the rest of money I had 50k.after that nothing happened they still asked for more before I knew it I lost 132 k I saved for my things I wanted to use money. I was back to square 0 I cried that day. The guy I called him he really sympathized with me. The next day he was mad not talking to me

      He asked me if I had an idea how much he used to send me all that package I told him I don’t know. He started being cold. But upyo now he still talks to me though . I don’t know I was so stupid. I have learnt painful lesson never to repeat such.

      He is called Dr Williams George someone confirm if has ever being scammed by him. The courier service was delta courier service

  20. Chris

    Hey can you tell me what happened after this? I dated a man online and we video chatted seems legit. Falling for him. And he said he needed to send me some of his belongings before his send off mission. But this suspicious company is emailing me to pay and send 1,350USD to had this packaged be shipped. Please advise.

    1. Anonymous sender

      I had the same stories. I have chatted someone and he said he will send all his valuables including gifts for me. He sent a tracking code to check the shipping thru a courier company website. Seems so real. Then after I received an email from the company that the items is now enroute. Then after they will send again another email that the item has arrived. They they said that inorder the item to be delivered I need to pay the custom charges and clearance fee amount of $1120. It is a scam coz they ask to send it thru an account number which I think belongs to a personal account and not a company owned. It is a scam! BEWARE!!!!!!

      1. Juliana

        Same..me too..and the cargo company just email me and tell that i must pay for more recharge..i must pay 1000 USD..and the package from romania..i email them back to returned the package..cause i don’t have money and they replied like them mad at me cause must returned the package

    2. Qwertyuiop

      I contacted with one person bcos i was using an apps to looking for friends or partner. We chatting everyday. And suddenly she told me that she got something for me she need my full address, phone number and my full name. At first i refused, but the next day i send her my address and my full name because i trusted her. And last night she told me i need to pay for the government tax. And the package will be arrived on Wednesday morning. Now im still here waiting for Wednesday to come and see what will happen. And now she not respond to my chat. We shouldn’t trust anyone we just know on social media. Lesson learned.

    I would say that we were having the same guy try to scam us. He used Lucas and he changes his last name and at times will use the name, Paul. He told me he bought me a car, jewelry, and clothes. Today, I was sent a text and email stating I needed to pay $5,800 for the items to clear customs. That was a lie. I looked into how much it would cost and it was $2,000.00. Not only that, but I would never pay for something that is coming into customs. Sky Express Delivery —- Scam

    1. Cherilyn Kennedy

      I’m pretty sure that I’m being scammed by the same man. He says his name is Lucas wall and that he is from Germany. He claims to be in Syria with 49 other Surgeons working for the United Nations. We have been talking for a long time on Hangouts and now he says he wants to come see me and that he loves me. Then he tells me that he put in for a leave and got it and that he sent 2 boxes with all his belongings in them. Including jewelry for me and numerous other things and that as soon as I received them then he would have clearance to leave. Then the next day I get an email from global Fast expressdelivery. They are asking me to send them a total of €40,000 in order for them to be delivered to me I was very suspicious and I questioned him and he claimed that he didn’t know about that but that I should pay it anyway because he didn’t want to lose his boxes. Since reading all these People’s stories I am convinced that he is a fraud . He thought he could scam me out of money by sweet talking me even though I had already told him that I was living on a fixed income and now he’s begging me to try and raise the money and that he will pay me back as soon as he gets here just so you know this is a very handsome sweet talking man who claims to be an orthopedic surgeon, a plastic surgeon who has one child, five children and that he is a widower , But then I found out that he was not and he has a wife that is very alive. So ladies please don’t fall for this guy he is a CAD and he needs to be stopped

      1. Haritha

        Exact situation is being faced by me at present. I got request from a guy in matrimonial site who mentioned that he is working as a dentist in Netherlands and like my profile very much and wanted to meet me along with his mother so booked medical flight and so can’t take his luggage along with him. Because of this he wanted to courier it so after the courier he said they may charge me little local charges while receiving. When asked how much charges and also courier details he said I will receive a mail. Now I received a mail with a subject URGENT FROM COURIER and titled EXPROYAL COURIER with the mail asking Is this Haritha (my name)? I didn’t reply as I have doubt whether it’s real or fraud and checked the email id and also EXPROYAL COURIER but no courier service found with that name having that mail id in it’s contact information. Can anyone suggest whether it’s real or fraud?

He convinced me many times but i dont agreed. He begged me for his future and dream hospital wants to build he said. I dont agree coz i know money cant be sent in package it can be hold by the Customs but he said it was approved by UN govt so its okay. He was in a hurry coz of his mission. No bank opened in there area coz of war only courier can send their package to.He convinced me. I gave my personal details.First stop service courrier emailed me asking for insurance fee $1500 in china customs. Before 24 hours I paid the amount coz my friend begged me to pay and promise will double my money. Next. stop, got emailed from airmax courier that phil customs ask for changing ownership and the amount is $4000 i replied u cant change the name of ownership coz i am just a reciever not a sender of that package why should i pay isnt it to much? You may send back the package to the place where it came from and i will not pay for it. If youre not pay w/in 24 hours the package will be confiscated by the customs they said.I told my friend he tried to convinved me to give the money and ask for discount. I told to him i am being scammed and i will not allowed it but he keeps chat on me many times to pay and give the money. Airmax courier emailed again threatened me if not pay w/in 48 hours US govt will come to my house and will take me to jail for being unresponsible. I told to that man lets BOC take over your package we have now funds to purchace for covid vaccines. Then I ignored both of them

      Any updates on this? Did you hear from them again?

    Proficient Express Service. Products keep getting held in various countries, they keep asking for more money for VAT and taxes, keep claiming I will be reimbursed once my products are delivered. Also asked for another $800 as my products were on hold for COVID insurance? Seems like a definite scam, I should have gone with the freight company I usually use, but I was drawn in by the “Free Shipping” Lesson to be learned, trying to save a buck and cut corners costs more in the long run.

    1. Shane

      Also shipment had a “mistake” they “Accidently” sent 70 instead of 7 and request I pay the VAT and taxes on them before they are released.

  98. Apple dela Cruz

    Met a guy on Instagram from Shanghai China but raised and born in USA, His IG name is Kendrick Yan. We chatted and end up chatting on whatsapp. After a few days he told me that he is going to Turkey for a company project and then ask me to open his account because he cannot access his bank account I told him I cant open it because its not mine its yours and he wanted to give me instructions for the money transfer from his bank account to Germany to get the materials on the project. I refused of course.

    After few days he told me he will go on shopping for himself and get a gift for me. He send it via first flight delivery ltd, gave the website and the tracking number so I could track it. After 3 days the package arrived and someone sent me an e-mail named Dave without last name (info@firstflightdelivery.com) that the I have to pay for the customs fee and overweight charges. I told him where will I pay, can online bank applicable or can I directly pay to the customs, even told them to send me the statement of account for customs/ or courier advice but instead they gave a bank name/bank account (Account name: Jasmin M Abrazado). I refused, I said why would I pay that huge amount of money that I dont even know if that person is really connected to that courier service. I make some research here and there.. also contacted the customs customers service to check the legitmacy of the package if it fake/scam or whatever. and then I saw this page and confirmed to me it s a scam. Their target are mostly girls..at first they are so good but really they had bad intention. Beware of the Dating Apps so many SCAMMERS. Don’t Trust to someone else. Don’t be a victim of a SCAMMERS.

    Hi. I am a swiss woman and as of January 2021 a man contact me. He was still nice and friendly. He said he is in the US Army in Kabul. Now, a few month ago he went to Damascus. He could not take his valuables with him so he would send it to me. I gave him my address, Now….Highclass courier contacted me for paying 1600 pounds for the parcel. I said no. He begs me to pay, because it would be all what he has. But I never met him. Sure, he sent pics, but I am not stupid. He said, that he sent in a box juwelieys and platin, and dollars I have to pay other juweliers for him here in Switzerland. And he said he put into the box a revolver for my protection. I can come into jail if this box with a revolver would be exist in fact. But it is a scammer, I knew it from the beginning. What I should say is, that he was always care about me. Concerning this I do not stop to response. But we discuss a lot and he said I am so stubborn. Now I said, he should look for his parcel because I do not pay a cent. But he knows all of me, because he said he could find everyone. He kows my address, and all. I am scared, because he said he somes soon. I hope not

  150. Mary Lee

    Hello. Good day. I hope you can help me. I had a chatmate we met thru instagram almost 2 months ago. He is requesting me to get an unclaimed parcel from UK stating that it should have been a gift from his late girlfriend. I asked him details about the package and he mentioned Capital Delivery Experience courier (Korean Company) I have checked details of that cargo company but I have not seen details. He mentioned that I should contact them thru hang out or email. I am having doubts about what he mentioned since I keep on telling him that he should have contacted the company because he have their contact details to send tha parcel back, he said he wanted to be here in the country thats why I need to secure it. Any thoughts on this?? Please help.

Supuestamente un amigo que conocí en línea vendria a visitarme y me enviaria su equipaje pero éste fue detenido en Ecuador me llego un correo de que se tiene que pagar $1850 usd para q el equipaje sea liberado pero busco la compañía en google maps y no la encuentro aunque si tiene página de internet sera estafa?

    1. GAES

      Hola ERVA.
      ¿Cómo resultó finalmente este posible fraude?, ¿Podrías decirme que excusa te dijeron para la retención del equipaje?, Creo que me pasó lo mismo, con esta misma supuesta compañía courier.
      Gracias por la información de antemano.

  155. Judy

    Is New World Express a legitimate company? The only one I found was in Dubai. The man I’m talking to sent his Italian ID card sent from Ohio to Canada. And now held in customs for a fee. First wanted 14,200 US, bartered to 9,000 then now 7,550. Is this legit. I confronted them and said the agent lived in UK. Where they had a division. Urgent request.

  158. Arreno

    It does not matter if the delivery service is legit! These scammers use fake emails with copies of actual services rendered or they make it up completely. Any person asking for money and your personal information on the internet is a complete scammer. Keywords to look for in emails are if they say their husband recently died, or they are dying, or thank you for your efforts, attention beneficiary. If they do not address you by your name in the first email, hit the block button! These scammers get away with what they are doing because there are too many gullible people lured in by their lies! There is no such thing as free money or free gifts! If somebody is offering you something, they should pay for all the costs!

    I received an email from a Swiftfly courier service which I did not click on links instead I Google if such company and went into its website put the tracking number from the email send it come out with all the information from the email, does this make it legit? Also asking for insurance money for delivery from the UK.

  161. Nari

    I was to receive a package from Florida through Airway Line Delivery. I got an email that they needed over $2500 USD for insurance and the $3500 for GST which they said they will refund by cash when they deliver the package. Unfortunately I think my sender was in on the scam because I sent the money to my sender. Then they requested for $2500 for late fees at which point I told my sender to cancel the transaction as i was no longer interested. Now they say they are refunding the fee but need to pay for the refund to be delivered.

  162. Rory

    Anyone ever heard of global swift courier logistics? They are saying I owe a “ City Permit and Postal Trade Distribution license” fee of $500 to release my package for delivery from the airport.

    1. Jared

      Hi just wondering what ended up happening with your situation?
      I’ve been sent a package through the same company global swift courier logistics, and theyre asking me for $1200 “refundable” deposit for the exact same “license”.
      Was it a scam?
      Cheers!!

      1. Anna

        I would also really love an answer to this one as I’ve gotten myself into the same situation.
        Thanks!

    Hi, Two weeks back I received a whatsapp message with +44, The guy introduced himself as a manager for Shell company and lives in England, we started chatting and he would always ask me what am doing.
    Now this week he said he was going for shopping for his family and wanted to buy me some few things. I said its cool. He asked for my address, ID, full names and all details.
    I gave him my gmail and address for my company but in another area.
    Today he told me he came back from shopping, sent me the list of items he had bought for me and what has made me suspicious is that he sent 100,000 pounds in those items.
    I became suspicious and he asked to let him know if I receive the cake.
    I asked him which courier services he used and said he uses Delta courier service.
    I searched for that courier service in Uganda and it seems unknown. Am quite knowledgeable about the courier services in Uganda.
    I went and searched about it then landed on this because he told me the deliveries will reach tomorrow but in my country the least expected delivery from abroad is 5 days.
    I thank you people for this comments because I would also be a victim tomorrow.

    1. SHANSHAN

    There’s this scammer hiding in “Geo Courier Company” name. I received an email but there are lots of grammatical errors and never seen any of such before. Aside from that, they are asking for a freight fee to be paid via Gcash and it smells like something’s fishy here.

  168. SHANSHAN

    Is Global world couriers (globalworlddeliveries) real? I had an online friend who bought stuff for me and ship out. He have the AWB. But I was worry all this is a scam because I need to pay clearance fee of SGD850 (Parcel weight is 6.4kg consist of clothes, perfume, iPhone 12max etc)

  169. Ektaa

    Started chatting with a guy from Instagram then moved to Whatsapp. Started telling me he wants to send me gifts as it was from his mother and that I should accept it. Sent me pictures of all the gifts today morning with a message of a tracking number and weblink to track package. Is PostNL Express legit?? Had a look at the tracking number, looked quiet real. Noticed that the clearance is to be paid by receiver. Almost got tricked into paying $450 (Ksh 52k) for something I had not even asked for. So glad came here before being bullied by the “Handsome” man for paying the fee.

    No facebook um tal “Marcus” Almeida Pinto ou Pinto Almeida, não sei o seu primeiro nome, só diz para chamar de Marcus. Enviou-me mensagem para o messenger e depois disse que era médico chefe cirurgião ortopedista e que está na Síria em Aleppo pela Nações Unidas numa missão de manutenção de paz, que tem 45 anos é viúvo e que tem uma filha num colégio interno em Londres. Diz que nasceu em Lisboa, mas foi criado na Inglaterra, que os pais morreram num incêndio quando tinha 13 anos e foi para um orfanato porque não tem mais família, o mail dele é almeidapinto888@gmail. Depois pediu para falarmos no hangouts porque na base não podia usar o messenger. Assim que o activei no hangouts o perfil dele do facebook desapareceu, achei estranho, mas ingénua acreditei em tudo o que disse. Depois disse que ia para uma missão e que tinha de me enviar uma encomenda com coisas dele, porque não tinha mais ninguém. No início rejeitei, mas depois ingénua enviei o meu mail e morada e número telemóvel. Depois comecei a receber estes mails de este remetente fedexpresshippingcompany@yahoo.com: forneça um endereço postal válido, número de telefone celular e o aeroporto mais próximo. você está se preparando para o envio?

    Pedem 1600€ para libertação da encomenda e pedem os meus dados e sempre a dizer que tenho 48 horas para pagar. Mas como, não me enviaram factura nem ninguém veio à morada e como já estava a achar tudo muito estranho mandei mail para eles me enviarem o número de rastreio e a factura. Só responderam a dizer que tinha 48 horas para pagar. Entretanto, enviei um mail à FedEx em Portugal e eles disseram que todos os endereços de mail da FedEx acabam em @fedex.com e que de certeza absoluta aquele mail acima referido não pertencia à FedEx.
    Agora estou com medo pois o tal Marcus envia menssagens para o hangouts a dizer que tenho de pagar porque senão perde a encomenda e que tem documentos e dinheiro que não pode perder e já me ameaçou.
    Alguém pode dizer se o mail fedexpresshippingcompany@yahoo.com é válido?

          Se a Fedex diz que não possui este endereço, então definitivamente não. Eles são os únicos que conhecem todos os seus endereços e domínios.

            A FedEx de Inglaterra também disse que não pode ser um mail da empresa. O meu medo é que tem os meus dados e ameaçou vir a minha casa quando vier a Portugal. Só me resta esperar que tal não aconteça.

    Thank you so much I found this, it’s a very great help for every one of us.. Now a days there’s a lot of scammers usually they are fond of having a lot of sweet thoughts to fall on their trap, like all of you here, guy’s I have been experiencing this situation that you have encountered. I have a man who chat with me in my messenger then he said that he wants to have privacy so he use a watssApp as our medium of communication, he told me a lot of things about him, that he is an engineer in the rig with five years contract. He always says a nice things and sweet thoughts that any girls will attract him and be fall in love with his trapped.Then he said that he wanted me to inquire me if how much is the cost of a beautiful and big house here in the Philippines. Because he wanted to buy it for us because he will visit me here and want to have a privacy with me,.Then he wanted me too to visit their country which is Korea, then after that he told me as well to go shopping, because he wanted to send me a valuable things like Apple cell phone,
    diamond earrings,
    bracelet,
    diamond ring
    Diamond necklace
    And he said that he send it already.. He also send me the videos of the things inside the package before he send through the #GLOBAL FAST COURIER NATIONWIDE.. but then,I think Im smart enough that I noticed something when he send me the online receipt. After that, he told me the next day that theirs a 40000euro he included in the package. Wow! Impressive and I couldn’t believe it, we only knew each other for 3days then eventually he will trust me immediately? So I’m so curious.. Then after 3days,I received an email from the Parcel #Global fast courier nationwide.. That it stated this way.
    Hello( sir /madam(MY Full Name)

    Thank you madam We will send you an account

Then he said that I need to follow the instructions and keep insisted that I must pay the said amount stated their. I told him, that the courier he used is a scumbag because, I observed that the sentence and the indent, is wrong. Why should I pay for it? I ask also that, I don’t have enough money to purchase it. He got angry easily like a devil in the hell! Because those things are valuable and theirs 2million he included their.. So I responded that, Im sorry, I don’t want to have it.. Tell the courier to send it back to you soon.. Thanks God I’m smart enough. So to all of us here, be mindful and vigilant as always. God bless us all.

      Pois comigo também quando recusei pagar ele ficou furioso, e disse que tinha recebido um mail da fedexpresshippingcompany@yahoo.com a dizer que eu recusava a encomenda e que devolvessem ao remetente. Depois ficou amoroso e implorou que pagasse o valor que me pediam porque não podia perder a encomenda, porque tinha dinheiro e documentos valiosos. Eu respondi que não podia pagar. Ele que pedisse o retorno da encomenda. Começou a ameaçar-me que vinha a Portugal e que me ia magoar e a toda a minha família. Bloquei-o no hangounts, apaguei o histórico, as conversas, desinstalei a aplicação e apaguei a minha conta do gmail. Ele apresenta-se como Almeida Pinto, Cirurgião ortopedista numa missão das Nações Unidas em Aleppo Síria. Espero que me deixe em paz e não caiam no conto de fadas.

  174. Em Martin

    I wish I had known this site before. All of the elements of scam presented here happened to me. But I ignored them because my online “boyfriend” to just trust him and I should follow up the email sender. It started with email saying I needed to pay USD1570 as tax before it would be cleared by the US Customs. I should have been warned because they asked to be paid in bitcoin and not through company bank account. Still, my “boyfriend” said. just trust them. Since I could not pay thru their bitcoin wallet, my “bf” said, I could send it to him which I did. And after one payment, another followed. And when it came to delivery, they had excuses.. I needed to pay demurrage charges until it went on for almost two months. When I finally completed the payment, I waited and waited for delivery. Nothing. And no more response. I checked Spring Global Logistics later, it did not appear any more while in the first few days, there was still the website. LESSONS: 1. If they ask for payment, ask them to give you the company account. Then check it. 2. Check with your local customs office to find out if the courier is legitimate. In the Philippines, we can email the Bureau of Customs. 3. Have them give you a photo of the shipment that includes the label. If the courier has no legitimate telephone number, don’t deal with them. No whatsapp, no viber, no celfon. All legitimate businesses have landlines. And get their local counterparts. Someone said that most of the victims are women. I am. and I am 71. But I am wiser after USD2500.00 money scammed. Tuition fee, I guess.

    I received a mail from Umar Global Courier Service from Ghana. They asked me to pay 1980 cedis to clear the good but I could pay half and when I get the goods, I’ll pay them the remaining half. I paid half and was expecting my goods. They later said they found more items and I’ll have to pay 1505 cedis, that once they confirm payment, they will refund 900 cedis back to me. I’ve searched for them on Google but I didn’t find anything about them. What is going on? Is there anybody I can contact in Ghana shipping authority to help?
