Dean James of 35 Kings Street, Manchester, UK contacted me off Yahoo web site initiated a friendship. After about a month of talking he said he was working as a contractor in the UK and was negotiating a contract in the US and would need someone of my background and experience to run his office. I said I would think about it. After a few weeks of talking he told me that he had purchased an antique Asian statue in the UK and had a buyer in the US. The buyers were a Dave Smith of Rock Hill, SC and a Mr Wong from China. He asked if I could receive the item and then negotiate with the other two parties to pay for the item and pick it up. It would be shipped to my residence in Washington, NC after being checked through customs and IRS in Charlotte NC. That sounded simple enough until I started getting request to pay tariffs, and cost of affidavit, along with customs in the Charlotte freight terminal... They advised that I would be reimbursed once the item had been cleared and in my hands. The amount of money accumulated until I had output 24,287.92 and I called a halt to sending anymore money. It was at this point that Dave Smith took over the management and supposedly hired a manager associated with the Charlotte Airport Freight to follow through with things. All was well until I ran out of money and he continued to tell me that once I paid the last storage charge of 997.00 he would meet me in Charlotte to receive the parcel and I would be reimbursed for my expense and time. Well when I told him that I could not continue to put money into things, he or shall I say they disappeared.... and stopped answering emails.Show more...
