Internet Love Scam
Alex befriended me on 2 Mar 2019 On IG to whatsapp. Few days later, he claimed to send me a parcel with important documents , luxury watch, a Dior bag and US$50K Cash. I was given a tracking no. On a fake Global Express Logistic (gel delivery) website. ALex emphasized that he must have the documents and cash when he comes to singapore after his marine Project for His business. I told him I will not accept the luxury gifts. I Only help him to receive the parcel and cash on his behalf.

An officer from choice financial Labuan texted me that the parcel and cash were confiscated at Malaysia Customs and needed me to pay various taxes to release. He also sent me a malaysian identity card, Tax receipts to convince me. within 2 weeks, I lost S$8K. Alex claimed he’s a victim too, cheated by agent.

It took me 4 months to get over this painful experience.. SCAMMERS Do PREY ON OUR EMOTIONS !!
