I live in Australia, and had heard that certain medications were much cheaper to order online via The USA than they are in Australia. I was a very experienced internet shopper and ended up at a US online pharmacy. I entered into a chat room with someone I thought to be a parmacist. I described by condition (which was extreme fatigue following a prolongued illness) and she/he recommended a particular product. I bought a bottle of 100 pils and given that the person in the online chatroom raved so much about how great the medicaation was, I agreed to pay for a fast shipping service. I was given a tracking number, and a link to a website. Everything seemed to be working. I could see that my parcel had gone from Los Angeles Airport, to Mascot Airport in Sydney. (I live in Melbourne). However a couple of days later, I received an email from someone claiming to be from EMS Shipping Service  He told me that my package contained prescription only medication (which I honestly didn't know, because the medication is not even available in Australia, and I was not asked for a prescription by the pharmacy). He said it was therefore contraband substance, and it was probably picked up because my name was most likely on a register of people who frequentlly purchase items from overseas. I knew this was wrong, as I had not previous bought anything from overseas via the internet. The email told me that unless I padi a "refundable" (yeah, sure) deposit of $5,950, I would have law enforcement at my door in a very short time, but I shouldn't worry, because once they received my $5,950 they would make sure that my parcel was delivered safely. By this stage, I knew I'd been scamed and I tried to enter my tracking number into the legitimate postal service sites that use EMS Shipping numbers. It didn't work on any of them. I told him that I didn't know the medication was prescription only as it did not exist in Australia, and the US pharmacy had not asked me for a prescription. I basically told him that if he wanted to call local law enforcement, that would be fine with me, because they could help me convict him for fraud. 

He sent me a more aggressive email, again threatening me with the notion that I would be picked up by local law enforcement. HIs written English was full of grammaticl errors, whcih made me suspicious, because EMS is an internationl mailiing system and would not likely employ someone who could barely use a 10 year old's grammatical skills in written communicaation. I told him I didn't want the medication if it was on prescription in the USA and that he should send it back to the company or destroy it. 

The bank details he gave me were for an individual's account in Milwaukee, and that was the exact same place that the pharmacy stated that I had to send the money to Western Union. So, I figure that the pharmacy adn this rogue shipping website are part of the same organisation, or at least working together. They could even be the same person. I have used the name he provided me of the account holder for the bank account, as I think the name he gave me on his email is completely bogus.
