Yet another post that I need to clarify. This website IS ABOUT SCAMS. ALL of the posts on here are about SCAMS. I don’t think I can make it clearer than that.
This was left as a comment. At first I thought it was left by a scammer – but I’m not sure as it contained the customer’s name (which I’ve replaced with ****).
It’s a scam. You aren’t expecting a parcel from the “Elite Fleet” company – neither am I. Courier companies don’t charge the recipient, they charge the sender. UK companies don’t ask for payment by Western Union either. If you make the mistake of replying to this scammer you will find yourself being asked for money.
