One alleged Mr. Kingston contacted me on whatsapp(whatsappp number +1 (430) 201-0779) and asked me to be friends with him ..he said he’s currently in USA and works as a software engineer at strong memorial airport Florida .
He promised to send me a MacBook Pro, and iPhone 11 pro and some money since I couldn’t connect with him with my Android device
The items were sent on Tuesday and he said it will arrive Nigeria at about 9-10 hours time as predicted by the flight officer..it was an Emirates airline as DHL have closed services for the day according to him
At about 10:00am on Wednesday morning I received a message that my parcel has been cleared for pick up at Abuja airport or request for a home delivery… I couldn’t go to Abuja because of transportation expenses so I ordered for home delivery which will take a service fee of NGN9,500…. I paid for it.
The customer agent later contacted me on whatsapp that it’s not NGN9,500 but NGN29,500. I asked if payment on delivery is allowed so that I can pay up the difference once it arrives here since the package contains some money but the customer service agent said NO. I tried contacting Kingston but he could hardly respond even the customer agent so I went online to contact Emirates online customer service to seek assistance and after explanation and evidence, I was told the company was not affiliated with Emirates airline services….. I was told that everything was a scam that I should report to the nearest police station.
I really need help to track down these scammers and get back my money.
