Gud day! Ma'am/Sir, i just want to know if my package from Liberia has arrive there in Mactan international airport. the sender Mr. Dennis McClane and the receiver is Ms. Gerlie Mae O. Huiso. i also want to know if is it true that i have to pay custom tax and clearance fee for the release of my package. THANK YOU!!
Let me know if it is true, it is a small parcel from Indian Ocean, 10kgs. I received a message from the officer name HARRISON EKE STEVE, i need to pay for the taxes worth 30,000peso, if i want to release it from the customs.. Please check if it is true or scam pls...
"Hon how are you doing? i am happy now that the package is your country now finally, honey i paid only for sending the package and the tax here not included the tax in your country, i forgot to tell you in my previous email that you need to clear the items also there in your country immediately the parcel arrived there because of i bought many things so before they will deliver it to you payment of clearing will be needed so honey look for a way and settle the amount needed., honey don't let those things become a waste, because if they even return it here i am not longer there to receive it so what will happen to the gifts which i cherish so much and again the money i fix in the laptop because i did not see any MONEY TRANSFER here because of the fight going on here many places is shot down, the money you are paying is because of the gadgets in the parcel which need clearance from airport before they can deliver to your address, i decided to fix the money there in the laptop, and you know that i am here in ship as i told you in my previous email, honey do all you can to clear that as soon as possible, since they said you should pay then send them the money , so they will deliver in your address is door to door delivery you cannot pick it up, i understand that if you did not settle, they will charge you also for living it for long there, so honey i beg of you to listen to them as they instructed you. Don’t let them know that i put money in the laptop the company has emailed me that the package is there in your country but not exactly in your address as they said after the payment they will deliver to your address so try and look for money and settle it then when you receive the parcel have the money inside and use wisely. i love you honey email me if you receive it already so that i will have rest of mind here hon, you know is risky for the package to stay long under their custom it might spoil or even get lost and you know i fix money in the package."

Howard crowfort is my chat mate in Tagged . He said he wants a seriuos relationship he's divorce and he's coming over to visit me next month. He send me pics of package rose flower, necklace,earrings,iphone, laptop acer and 3,500 british pounds. Today john summerville emailed and texted me asking for 8,200 saying tax for my package. Its a good thing that my daughter knows how to search on things if its legal or not. They ask me to send money thru western union under Jovelyn Castillo . I was about to send the money when my daughter saw this page. Thanks everyone for sharing your stories.
PI passport? if PI passport try to go to the airport office and ask at their lost and found area about your passport, if not, get affidavit of lost and gather docs (just like first time applicant) and apply for passport at DFA
Last Feb. 21, 2013, A name Andrew Newman sent me a message, I replied and we started exchanging emails, then after about 8 days he sent me a message asking for my address and complete name and #, since I trusted him I gave it to him, couple of days after he sent me an email again saying he sent me a package with 1 APPLE LAPTOP
1 I PAD
2 GOLD NECKLACE
1 ROSE FLOWER
2 PAIRS OF GOLD RINGS..
I was surprised, I didn't buy it but I just played along, he even said he put 3500 usd inside the package, after couple of days I received an email from email@example.com with tracking number when I checked everything is there and It really look so true, seems the airway bill is original and genuine, after few Hours I got an email from Andrew Newman asking me if I got the package I said nope not yet, then today I received a text from Alice Mortiz (09158629526) saying my package is in Davao waiting for my clearance and to check my email for more information, I asked her why is that the package is in Davao, knowing I am here in Manila she said there's a lot of delivery in Davao that's why they just include mine, when I checked my email I got a certificate from Bureau of Custom asking me to pay 12k pesos tax, I was like, I knew it, It is a scam. I hope they will catch these scammers, The certain Andrew Newman sound like Australian, I called him before, he said when I was chatting with him that he is looking for a serious relationship and that he is divorce that he will visit me here in PI next month he also said that he is from US but right now he is in London for a conference, but I never believed what he said I was just playing along.... Alice Mortiz I hope you'll burn in hell with what you're doing with your fellow Filipino,
