Kelvin Yang AKA Kenneth Lee FRF Couriers & Security

I got an email from one of my readers letting me know that Kelvin Yang is still sending the same pictures and still trying to scam people but is now using the name Kenneth Lee on Facebook. He is still using the same story trying to get people to send him money. DO NOT SEND HIM ANY MONEY. As you will never see it again. He is also telling people that he is sending a package through a scam courier company.

The name of the scam courier company is FRF Couriers & Security. Their website is www.frfcs.com and it looks like a legit courier companies website FRF Couriers www.frf.com.au which is out of Australia. You will see if you go to both websites that the scam website frfcs.com adds on the word Security to the company name. On the legit companies website it says customer login at the top. On the scam website it says track now. If you click on this it asks you to enter your tracking number. On the legit website it has you login to your customer account. Again www.frfcs.com is a SCAM and www.frf.com.au is a LEGIT company.

Each of these websites has different contact information. On the scam www.frfcs.com website the contact information is placed poorly. This is another red flag. A company as big as FRF Couriers is going to have a professionally done website. Not something that looks like it was thrown together in minutes.

Make sure to do your homework on courier companies that you are going to do business with. As you can see scammers are using legit company names to lure people in. If you meet someone online who starts talking about sending you a package and then you needing to pay these "fees" for you to receive it then it is a scam. Stop talking to them immediately and block them if you have to. Most of the time though once you tell them that you know their a scam they will leave you alone.

Phony Quickway Security Company

The other day I received an email from someone else from Malaysia saying that they got contacted by a guy and he wanted to send them a package using a company called "Quickway Security". This company is a scam and just wants the receiving people to pay money for all these customs and clearance "fee's". They then give a bank account number to wire transfer and after you send that they then make up another excuse for you to send even more money. Since this is the second person who has told me about this scam I wanted to dig into this more. Here is what I found....

Quickway Security appears to also be known as Quickway City Express but Quickway Security gives much more contact information. Both of these companies are fraudulent. Their web sites are from a free service and are http://quickwaysecurity.page.tl and http://quickwaycity.page.tl. They stole information and pictures from a legit trucking company called Quickway Carriers. The website http://quickwayexpresscourier.page.tl I had posted about Quickway Security on my post about Kelvin Yang appears that they are no longer using it.

The bottom line is if anyone from another country is offering to send you a package through some unknown courier with a free website don't do it. Especially if they then start sending you emails asking you to send over money. The 2 people who contacted me were from Malaysia but I bet this scam is happening all over.
