In November I was contacted by a guy with the name of Ralph Parker.
He is apparently working on an oil rig in the Gulf Of Mexico
Stays in Cape Town and is a single father of an 18 year old girl that is staying in France.
He sent me some pics of him and he the proceeded to say that he wants to spend his life with me and wants to take me on holidays etc.
He then let me know via email that he sent me a parcel with handbags and an iPad,iPhone,jewellery.
The invoice he sent via email from 1time courier service seemed legit at first but on closer inspection I saw the irregularities in print on invoice.
Parcel was sent from Texas USA and upon arrival in South Africa I was informed that I needed to pay R2850 in taxes etc.
Allen van Zyl is the contact person and the two numbers I have as contact is 0218255166 and 0611277652.
Ralph also got upset with me when I said I don't have the money to pay for the tax on parcel and then also told me that he also included $5000 in the parcel for me.
I was lucky enough to avoid being scammed but it would seem they do this to so many people and no one is stopping this.
Please can someone help
They also threaten you when they realise that a report is added with incriminating evidence.
Pending private investigation outcome
