    I met this guy online "Ben Lucas". And so blindly I fell in love with him over a while and I never knew he was a scammer. He lied that he was an engineeer working outside the country and he promised to send me a parcel with alot of his cash and valueables in it by a fellow scam ipost courier agent ("Tracy Lewis" email: ipost@deliveryman.com and ipostservice@deliveryman.com).

    He also promised to come back home and be with me a we'd live our lives together but I ended up sending over $200,000 to him and he's fake courier agents. I found out this was all a scam when I hired a personal investigator to check him out and also confirmed the identity of the criminal.

    I

    post personal (Tracy lewis) on the ipost website (https://www.ipostparcels.com). I was destroyed by this bastard, now I am bankrupt. I kept paying and never got the damn package.

    I saw this alert too late! They did not get any money on this one but they have my passport and drivers license information. I am praying that they do not open accounts with my information. Now I have to try to monitor that on credit reports. I have all of the correspondence emails that were sent back and forth to and from a fake Brett Newton and a fake Barrister Miguel Karin and fake Sigrid Rausing, Whoever these scammers are. It all sounded legitimate.

    To report it right, I need to be able to send full emails to you.
