NIPOST's EMS Speedpost - what are your experiences?

Well as we all know one of the postage services by NIPOST is the EMS Speedpost Services. I am planning to use such services in the future, and I was thinking whether anyone has experience is using the service. Whether it be good or bad in terms of reliability or even duration taken to deliver.

So ladies and gentlemen, I need your testimonials. I would be very grateful.

Seems like many people have had problems with their packages being delivered to them through this service. Some report that they had to bribe people to get their things, while others faced fraud and have been scammed. There are also those, who think the service is just fine. So, as you may see, there are some risks involved and it is only up to you to decide whether to take them or not.

Thanks a lot Fogman.

Funny enough the items arrived at the post office today. However, the customs are asking for N45,000 in duties. Any suggestions??

Yes, have used it many atimes to receive parcel from USPS. Item arrives between 7 to 10 days. Just continously track it on both USPS and EMS Nigeria websites. The snag with EMS Nigeria is they might not alert you of its arrival, with regards to my experience. Once you confirm its arrival, just visit the post office that covers your address and present them with your tracking no, they ll charge you N1500 before it is release to you provided it is not a dutiable goods, otherwise you ve to pay duties to custom desk at the post office.

I'd like to inquire further about the USPS Express Mail Service fulfilled by EMS in Nigeria.

Has anyone sent electronics and other small items through this service recently??

How would you rate it?? Is it reliable?? will your items arrive on time?? Will you receive them in the condition sent??

Thanks for your replies.

I just got scam by this seller who used ems-link delivery, yeah its true what daking said, everything looks so real with the tracking number, if i read about this forum before I make a payment nothing will be lost, i bought a camera and they make a mistakes by sending it 5 camera instead of 1, ive paid for 1, but then everything runs smoothly and suddenly my packages on hold at cyprus, then he said that my item on hold because at first the item declare as gift but now the cyprus custom want the waybill but they did not have, so they said i have to pay euro165, i was so worried because i really want the camera and i pay it, but few days after that i thought the camera will be release but he said i get another fine euro200 bcoz demourage, at that point i know something wrong, then i go to the ems website and take the contact number, when they pick up the phone they dont even ask my name but they simply said that "you have to pay euro200", it gave me a shock!!, at that point i know ive been SCAM!, and some more they said the company from UK but the accent is not british at all and the accent is like african!, then i directly call the seller and another suprised the voice is the same!!!,

so as i scroll down the forum you said the website has been close, but its NOT, i hope you can check back and shut this web so there wont be any other people scam by them,

so to naijacutee i will send you the more info on this, hope you could help me,

I find this thread very interesting to read.

In my opinion however, i foresee Nigeria having a strong online business going for them in the near future. Too bad there are lots of negative experiences, i believe they will emerge from it and take things to the next level, it definitely can't be that bad forever. So whilst most people see: FRAUD, SCAM, BEWARE, etc, let's not forget that there are un-mined 'gold' with a great potential.

I do agree people should be more careful and do their own research before going forward with any business online especially when it comes to money. The downside to this is that legitimate business gets affected by it as well. So maybe people should give those doing legitimate business a chance.

I am working on a petition against NIPOST/EMS for the cases where people are asked to pay some extra money under the table to be able to pick up there packages/mail and I was wondering if any of you who have had issues of this kind with the company would like to sign my petition ?? I intend to submit it to the ICPC and also submit a copy to the EFCC. To Fight corruption in Nigeria , we the people need to get involved to some extent and this is a good way to get your complaint heard by the right authorities.

I myself have had to tolerate this for too long and since we already know that we have forces that are working to get things cleaned up now, it will be a good move to actually join the fight and let them know that we are behind them and at the same time get our voices heard. This is 2008, a year in which we can effect the crime situation in that country in a big way by simply taking advantage of what is being offered to us now to our advantage.

NIPOST EMS Speedpost

I did not buy anything from the website, the mistake i made was to allow my friend send me goods worth a $1000 through EMS Speedpost and not through FEDEX or UPS,though they are expensive but reliable, you can track them but EMS Speedpost is a complete headache since the 24th of July that EMS Speedpost said my goods left Nigeria for USA,I haven't got it till now and moreso the track and trace they put on is dumb,the only thing that is there is the day it left Nigeria unlike other postal agency that will give you up to date information, i just pray Nigerian postal services haven't shown me their true colors by stealing my product, i can't even sue them,who will i sue? I am having headache 24/7 waiting at my door for the bell to ring, has any one gone through this same problem? please tell me what you did, i am tired of calling them at their office, it is either they can't transfer me to customer service due to lack of electricity or they have to log on to the internet, its really shameful, i feel so ashamed to say i come from that country,i don't know what is going on? i don't know who to blame, the leaders or the workers? Nigeria is getting worse by the minute not by the day.

This scam is commonly refered to as 419 which is the nigerian criminal code for fraud. Pleease educate yourselfs. CNN and ABC news have done countless programs on these Scams and yet people still fall for them. Nigeria is not a place for any cheap electronics. As matter of fact Used ones are sold there for hundreds of dollars so please unless it is oil nothing else from nigeria is worth buying. Be ware you have been worn.

Why talk about only DHL, EMS AND UPS.

There are other efficient courier coys that offer efficient and cheaper courier services both locally and interntionally.

e.g TRANEX, TRANEX was formerly know as TNT-Skypak Nig Ltd. Because of the new name, many people dont seem to know them. I bet you TRANEX will give you service quality for your money. It has a track and trace facility. for more information visit www.tranex-ng.com

Yes go ahead, it worked for me on two conservative occasions whereby i used their service to send two parcels one to Russia,and the other to Norway.

Cheap too! compare DHL,UPS N18900 EMS N7850 same parcel of Ikg in weight.

Tips, make sure you register your parcel on Mondays.if it will be going outside the country,parcels leaves evry Wednesdays or there before

2 Write out the destination address by yourself clearly.

3 The EMS is a worldwide post offices courier format obtainable where main post office exists, Not a Nigeria Stuff

4 Your parcels are covered by insurance

5 You can track your parcel online,if you know how to go about like DHL etc

$6.00 MAILING LIST GIFT LETTER IS A SCAM,

SENDING CHAIN LETTER AND RECRUITING PEOPLE IS A PYRAMID SCHEME

Pyramid Scheme: A scheme in which a hierarchy is created by people joining under others who joined previously, and in which those who join make payments to those above them in the hierarchy, with the expectation of being able to collect payments from those who join below. Pyramid schemes are prohibited by the laws of the United States of America, by the laws of each of the fifty individual states, and by the laws of most other nations. Pyramid schemes are variously defined under these laws either as a form of gambling, or (more accurately, in my opinion) as outright fraud

Hey GNature,

Just for your information, I was the one being scammed!

I guess you will never know unless you tried it. This was a wonderful experience for me as I would not waste my time, if it truely wasn't. This $6.00 doesn't go to me, if you read the article you would know that! Yes, I was scammed, but tryng this out was the best thing that I could of ever done. Yeah, felt silly about trying it, but thought, what the heck, what's $6.00, I drop that in change! I guess, you will never know!

I apologise for my laughter on this thread. First of all, I am impressed that Nigeria finally has a functional postal system and I'm equally appalled that the scammers have gotten there already!

Ok, how can we make it clear to the world that cheap electronics originating from Nigeria simply do not exist!!! (or any African country for that matter!.)

Our main specialties in Nigeria are :

- Crude oil and gas

- Palm oil

- Kolanuts

- Root and tuber crops (e.g yam)

- Cocoa

- Rubber

and some others I may have not mentioned. If your area of interest doesn't fall roughly into these categories, please donate your money to charity.

Anyone, I need help! I believe I've just been scammed by Nigerian Company, Epower Telecom. They have a website called infinitysources.com. Has anyone heard of this company. Well, I purchased 1 sample ps3 from her, then she tells me her manager requires her to sell 10 unit. I told her that I will only pay for 1 (which I did) to make sure you are a legit company before buying more. So she agreed and told me she is to send 10 and I will have to pay her 9 when I recieve them. She then shipped them through EMS Speedpost in Nigeria. Nigeria EMS Customer Service then emailed me with the confirmation of my delivery stating the tracking # and the day of arrival. Okay, everything looks legit. Well, then, I recieved an email from EMS again stating that I need to pay $400usd for Custom Fees! What was really suspicious was that they told me to pay via Western Union to EMS to some guy named Albert Remmy. I emailed my distributor and ask her why in the hell was I going to pay someone in Nigeria U.S. customs fees when I'm suppose to pay the U.S. for it? Am I right? Now, before I could get my goods, I have to pay these fees and after reading everyone else's experience, I feel this is a complete scamm! Oh yeah, I've tried to also track my number under EMS SPEEDPOST and my number doesn't show up as recorded? I know all those post are from years ago, but has anyone been scammed recently from this company?

Please give my any experiences of such or suggestions.

Thank you,

I think NIPOST should help these guys who Nigerians in Nigeria had duped. I could not understand how these 'dupers' have access to these documents at the post office. At USPS in America, you are given a computer generated sales receipt with the track or label number, custom form number together with EMS form filled by the customer. The sooner we understand that there is an internationally acceptable mode of business transaction the better for us all.

I ordered a TV from a Nigerian company. The cost of the TV and cost of shipping we rolled in to one. They said they were using EMS shipping and I would receive it in 48 hrs. I never received my TV. The company said that EMS was holding my TV and that I had to pay 200.00 for customs. I contacted EMS they said that customs needed the 200.00 for taxes and what not. EMS told me that it is against company rules to have any contact w/ customs. They said I was to pay my money to EMS only and they would forward the money to customs so they can get my TV released and have it delieved in 24 hrs.

Has anyone else experienced this problem. Does anyone have any infomation on contacting Customs to see if this is true or not.

please reply - EMS says if I dont pay for the TV now, they will start charning extra money for damanges or extra holding costs or something. I need help

Sorry people you've just been defrauded, swindled, jobbed and like we say in lagos o ti san owo mugu (You've just paid fees). You should have known better than to buy phones from Nigeria a country that does not produce phones. I suppose they were very cheap and you couldnt resist the unbeliveably low prices. Well thats the price you pay for believing something thats too good to be true.

This is not to say that all nigerians living in Nigeria are frauds. Actually most Nigerians are hardworking trustworthy people. You were just unfortunate to have met a crooked one.

Next time if an offer is too good to be true know that it is.

Hi Metooo,

Sorry to hear that you went through the same misery like I did. Since my last post, a lot of things has happened. Supposedly, these people were able to release these phones from customs. They kept telling me that it is in the United States (where I live) and to make a final payment to have it delivered to my door in a matter of hours. I asked them about the shipping company info again and was told to contact helpdesk4emscustomers@yahoo.com. The "yahoo.com" did not sit well with me but I played along and sent an email to them. To cut a long story short, a fellow with the alias Henshaw Douglas said that it was indeed delivered to my area and that my "agent" picked it up. As I told him that I had no such agent, he referred me back to the company. There, a guy who is supposedly the manager who goes by the alias Duncan and Acha Buchi (who is the one I originally talked to and was given that yahoo email address above) told me that the agent is of his company and that I needed to pay my balance before he delivered the phones. Originally, I had no trust for this deal and so it was told that once I received my shipment, then I would pay in full. Anyhow, he said that he fired the original guy that I dealt with (Edward Darlington - the name that appears on the ads on the web) because he was suspected of being involved in "shady deals" and had the nerve to accuse me to be a part of this shady deal as well. Once again, to cut a long story short, I told him that if this is not fraud, either send me my phones and I will pay in full (as that was the original agreement), send one phone first so that I can test his authencity as I've paid for more than enough to cover one measely phone, or sell the phones off to someone else and reimburse me for what I've paid so far because I've gotten nothing so far. Needless to say, he kept going around this subject and never responded. Since I had made it clear that I will not send anymore money and cut my losses then and there, this bastard has not been writing to me anymore. Since then, I've reported this case to the IFCC (since I live in the U.S.) and the EFCC (the authority that handles fraud and other matters in Nigeria). I suggest you not send any more money and just take this as a loss and lesson learned as I have. If you have time, perhaps you should report these scams to those agencies that I just named. You can find their website by typing in IFCC and EFCC in yahoo or google. If many people make reports, perhaps they might do something about it. Hope that helped.

i had almost the same problem too..i only bought two phones from them in the beginning and they email me with a receipt saying that they accidently sent out 6 units of the phone..then they ask me to pay for 2 more and will give another 2 for free to me...at first i didnt really believe him...but after few emails communication i just decided to pay for the second payment because i guess im silly enough to trust him...after that he said i should receive my item by next day but it didnt arrive..he sent it by EMS speedpost...i ask him to tracking number but he said EMS doesnt have tracking number...and then he said he found out that the package is hold down at the custom...need to pay that amount of money to get the package..however i told him that im not going to pay anymore extra...and if he's a scam i just ask him to stop bothering me since i will not pay anymore extra money and he already got what he wants...but he still replied me and said he will pay for the custom but i just need to wait for one month cus he say he will pay for it after he got his next pay check...i just feel this whole thing is weird...can anyone please help me?

I have the same problem as Moto and would like to get some answers as well. I've dealt with an Edward Darlington ordering some cell phones from emperorphones which is located in Nigeria. After sending my money, I was told that EMS was used as the courier and that customs had a hold of my shipment. In order to have it released, I need to send money for custom fees. I stupidly sent a portion of the fee as it did not seem too much. Now, I'm told that there are other problems waiting to be resolved. I also got a copy of my receipt via an attachment. Because everything was handwritten, it's legitemacy is questionnable. Because I'm unable to track my order like Moto, I've going crazy. I ordered my phones about a month ago and I'm nowhere except believing that I may have been frauded. Can anyone tell me anything about past experiences with EMS Speedpost? Such as was the receipt you got from them mostly handwritten instead of typed or computerized? The information that was handwritten was the date, "received from", "the sum of", "being", and "expected delivery date" sections. The receipt seems authentic because it has an EMS Speedpost stamp at the bottom right corner but everything else has been suspicious. Please save my mind and inform me if you have any type of information regarding EMS. Thanks.

Hi,

I am not from Nigeria but have recently conducted some transactions with a Nigerian company. The Nigerian company used EMS to ship the items that I bought however now they're telling me they are held up by customs and that we have to pay the Customs charges to have them released. Has anyone ever heard of this practice by Customs officials? Furthermore, does anyone know the contact info for EMS in Nigeria (preferably an e-mail address and phone number? I cannot seem to load the website of the Nigeria Post Office and it doesn't look like they offer track and trace features. I do have a copy of the receipt from EMS that the vendor provided me.

Any assistance would be appreciated thanks!!
