I recently placed an order with MN Tobacco. They demanded to make the payment through Western Union and I did.

After a few days with no reply I finally got a track&trace code. They used this shipping company called - all seemed legit but I had a strange feeling about this.

I was able to trace the shipment through the website, final destination being The Netherlands.But the shipment was in transit in London for 3 days than I recieved an email claming I must pay an insurance fee worth 95% of the value of the shipment and this "fee" would be refunded on delivery.

Now I know how insurance works and this is not it. I suspect this shipment company is just a part of the scam MN Tobacco company is playing.

I also contacted the UK Customs at Heathrow airport, where the shipment is supposed to be in transit, and they told me what I basically already knew. Ofcourse they don't charge this type of "insurance" fee.

Alan Yinko is the person I spoke at this so called company, he doesn´t give me a decent reply to my messages whatsoever. The company seemed legit, but I probably lost my money. Hopefully I´ll be able to work something out with my creditcard company and their insurance policy.
