Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
What money have you sent and to whom?
How did you send the money?
I am so very sorry but you have been the victim of an internet scam - and neither Google nor DPD are in any way involved.
Many of such scams originate from East Africa which is why the money is usually requested to be sent via Western Union.
I do understand why you believed in the emails that you received but sadly there are no funds waiting for you - and it is unlikely that you will be
able to recover the funds that you have lost.
You can report the crime here
Please ask if you need further details
I am so very sorry but NONE of the emails your received were from any of the firms you mentioned - nor were HM Customs in any way involved.
The people behind these scams are clever in the way that they copy legitimate websites so that what they are saying looks genuine.
You are certainly not the first person nor will you be the last to be caught in this way - but the real companies are in no way responsible.
The scammer is actually a criminal somewhere most probably in Ghana.
There are many websites which allow you to check the reality of any such "wins" - but sadly the fact is that if something seems too good to be true - it is not true at all
