I was trick by this scam, after somebody befriend with me at WAN site were to find friends...after they will hooked u up they will tell u that they have sent a parcel for u with some money, jewelries and valuable things and a picture of the parcel You can't even see the details. After some time there will be a call from Malaysia that you have penalty, and you must pay the charges through western union money transfer, it seems so real because your hooked up with the guy that exchanges sweet messages ( to good to be true),I was fooled and have paid the said amount after sometime they will ask u to fax it (but u cannot fax the message) and will asked u again the parcel will be hold again because money and valuable things are scanned and it is prohibited, u will be asked to pay the insurance and be told they will refund the money after you have received the parcel. They don't choose anyone...they will use different random names and pictures. And they give you he address of the courier, the username and password of it.
