Desmond Lee – Legit or Scam?

I came across a critical review of Desmond Lee on a Scam Reporting website –, titled ‘Pay duty to clear gift shipment’.

DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against Desmond Lee with a pinch of salt.

Here is what the review says –


+44 7895423972Appearance: He is an Asian-looking hunk (per his IG posts-humble and god-fearing), said to be a Korean born in the UK with Korean-accent. Marine/civil engineer by profession Process: He befriended through Instagram DM, then proceed to ask for WhatsApp to chat. Within the 1st week, he is full of praises & seek me as his future wife. In the 2nd week he is so mad for me & insist to send me gifts coz his company just got a new million-dollar contract. When I reject he threw tantrums saying “Why are you complicating issues, Don’t be ungrateful to who care about you”! One of his ‘signatures’ i think coz he keep using these. One day after posting the gifts, he inform that he will go offshore for his new contract, & also sent 9 pictures of the gifts-iPhones, Chanel/LV bags/shoes plus a stewardess checking in parcels onto conveyor. In addition there is brown envelop with cash & I quote –Dear i kept a brown new envelope,open it and there you will find $19,500 dollars inside the items for your upkeep and for your expenditure because i was told here that the receiver have to pay for Duty import charges tax before they will deliver to him or her,once they call you, you settle them for the Duty import charge so they can deliver to your home address immediately.. Dear as soon as you received the items you donate 10% of the dollars to the orphanage home in your country okayQuite important coz it is most likely cut-&-paste except.2 days later, courier agent-Swift Daily Courier contacted me via WhatsApp using a local number. When I did not reply immediately he called me. He too had a Korean accent, asking me to pay for import duty $5,000 to custom department airport. He was able to send me a receipt from the local tax authorities, a very personalized log-in to track only my cargo status via Swift Daily courier website. He also instructed me to pay the import duty into their superior manager bank account.Going back to the beau, he is of course offshore by now & cant make any $ transfer to cover the import duty. He could be described as angry, then pleading so as not to cease the parcel/dollars inside, not to spoil the happiness we build together, later negotiate for me to pay at least half of ‘import’ duty, coercing etc. Telling him that I’ve escalated & provided his contact & the courier agent’s contact to all the authorities- tax, customs, police, UK Met police etc he gave up responding after 2 days.
