Courier and Parcel Delivery Scam Alert
SCAM ALERT. Be Warned: We have received multiple complaints from people who have been scammed by fake package and parcel delivery companies. They typically get messages that they have won a prize from a celebrity or a friend sent a gift to them and they need to send some money to pay for shipping or clearing of the package.
Courier companies should NEVER ask you to pay for the shipping or waybill or receipt of a package that has been sent to you. Typically, the sender pays the full cost of delivery.
We have received multiple complaints about the following businesses, which do not seem to exist in Nigeria. They include:
- IOSAS Freight
- ENL Courier Express, INC.
- RCS logistics, Abuja (RCS Logistics is based in the UK and does not offer courier services too Nigeria).
