I am one of the victim and I am from Malaysia. I know that the scammers are all over the country because they still want to contact me and when I check their IP, they are from various part of Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur, Seremban, Melaka and even Pulau Pinang. I wonder why the Malaysian government didn't do anything about it even they know the matter become more serious. So sad... :(

RP Embassy in Malaysia Warns Against “Customs Scam”

RP Embassy in Malaysia Warns Against “Customs Scam”
Friday, 06 August 2010 10:04 Public Information Service Unit

06 August 2010 - The Philippine Embassy in Malaysia warned Filipinos, particularly those working and residing in Southeast Asia, of the so-called "customs scam".

The scam, usually targeting women holding stable jobs in reputable companies, involve promises of securing a valuable package in exchange for remitting money to the perpetrators. This is in the light of a case involving a Filipina construction project secretary in Brunei who met a certain British national named Mr. Hans Owen through the internet. Mr. Owen later became her fiancé-apparently even without having met him face-to-face-allegedly sent her a "valuable package" that purportedly required customs clearance during a stopover in Malaysia.
Mr. Owen convinced the Filipina to remit US$9,200 through Western Union to a certain Mr. Nasir Eric, allegedly a resident of Bandar Baru in the Kuala Lumpur suburb of Ampang. The money was sent in two tranches-one on June 17 and another on June 18.

Other than the two remittances, she also reportedly sent £780 to Mr. Owen on June 25.

Not suprsingly, no package arrived and the Filipina has not heard from either man or recovered her money.

The Embassy has reported the case to the Interpol section of the Malaysian Police and is continuously following up on the case.

Meanwhile, news reports in Kuala Lumpur revealed that a group of four Nigerians and two Malaysian who are in the "customs scam" was arrested after a woman senior executive in a private firm in Penang state reported them.

The woman executive responded to an email message that she can secure a valuable package if she assisted the Nigerians in settling some tax payments and other formalities, before the customs department can clear the goods. She later complained to the police that she lost Malaysian Ringgit (RM) 30,000 (US$9,375) to the syndicate.

Police arrested the four Nigerians, who are holders of Malaysian student visas. The two Malaysians arrested with them were "dummies" used to open local bank accounts to facilitate the scam.

The Malaysian police is investigating the group's possible links to other syndicates operating in the country. END

I was almost scammed! This guy pretended that he is Bristish . We exchanged emails for more than two weeks and he said that he is going to meet me here in Canada after he's transactions in Kaula Lumpur. Then he called me that he needs money to free himself ,because people in Malaysia took all the money that he has, and he couldn't fly back home. I sensed that something strange is going on and I confronted him then he got so upset and he told me that he didn't want to hear from me anymore. He got several numbers registered in the Uk and he got the number registered in Malaysia.
I have his email address and the phone number in Malaysia. what should I do? I am positive that he is a Nigerian man because I spoke to him several times. I even confronted him that he speaks like chinese not British and he was very upset.
:lol:
What should I do? I have his number registered in Malaysia. I want to report him. Any suggestion People?

Post all his details on the site. The more information the better. The sad fact is that the authorities will do very little about this, so your best course of action is to put his details online to help warn others.
