REPORT N1 (added on May, 28, 2013)
Noeleen (South Africa)

Merika Serika plays on woman on the dating site. Tells them he is sending them gifts and they must just pay the small amount at customs. Uses a service called PARCEL EXPRESS DELIVERY, who send you a Tracking number and a website address (passed.u-ii.com) where you can track the number. Their email address is: info@passed.u-ii.com. This is the only correspondence from the company. A man calls on a local cell phone number to tell you he is at your local airport, pay the fee (usually a small amount around R3000.00 and they will delivery. Once that is paid, they request a larger amount now because they miscalculated the value of the parcel. You pay the next fee, then they want a huge amount because they found a huge diamond ring in the parcel and now they have to get authorization to get it through customs. All the time the original scammer, Merika Serika, keeps sending emails professing his love and he is sorry but he has put his life savings in the parcel and sent you a diamond ring to prove his love. Please accept the gifts so he may move out of America and join you here in your country. Naturally he has enclosed about 50 000.00USDollars in the parcel for you so that you will get all your money back that you have spent to claim the gifts.
The bank details to which I was told to make payments to is as follows:
Bank: The SA Bank of Athens
Account: 40007365558
Branch: 410700
I check the name of the account holder. There is a legitimate company called ADEKANBI ALINLA here in South Africa but they deal with the Registrations of new businesses in South Africa and are in Johannesburg.
Phone numbers I was given for contact purposes where as follows:
Merika Serika cell number: +1 224 210 2022
This number only went to an advertising answering machine.
Merika Serika home number +1 301 288 3568
There was never any answer on this number
Courier Agents number in SA +27795346713
He went by the name of Francis.
The Courier Company did not supply a telephone number at all.
