Report: Viewed my profile yesterday morning. Seemed unkeen to communicate on the site and wanted to move to IM. Pleasant enough interaction though a little intense. Lovely pictures of 'himself' and his 4 year old daughter. Woke to a very sweet email but again a little intense. My friend had been scammed a few weeks ago and so I googled some of the wording to discover the exact same email on your site.

Report: I was the victim of an extensive romance scam with this man. He groomed me for six weeks and claimed to have fallen deeply in love with me. He then supposedly went to Malaysia for work and was held up at immigration for bringing too much money into the country. He then asked for money for living expenses until he got his stuff back.The initial request was for a small amount of 600 AU dollars. Then the requests became bigger each time, the first one being for getting his stuff back from immigration otherwise he would go to court and then prison. Enter the Chinese lawyer into the scam. Money was to be deposited by wire transfer into the Chinese lawyer account but not a Chinese name. The account name was Ariyati Binti Zaral Gaffar. the other account used was in the name of Iwuajoku Kelechi Chima. this account was CIMB bank and the other one was Maybank account. Then he said that his good s had to now go to the head man of immigration and the fee then doubled. All up it was 35,000AUdollars now sent plus the initial 600. Then finally whe he has his goods back he was supposed to give me that oney back but then said he was going to send by diplomatic courier via Interlink courier express. They have a web site set up for this service with tracking sheet and everything. then the next thing is to fill out a document for Malaysian internal affairs for the exit clearance fee which was another 25,000 dollars. then enter Chinese lady from the courier service who recommends a diplomatic red stamp just to make things extra safe. The Chinese lady has the name of Sharifah Mohammed Danial. The red stamp was another 21,000 AU dollars. Then I got a text from the so called diplomat from an Australian mobile saying he needed another 25,000 dollars for entry clearance fee in Australia. At this point I have a tracking sheet saying the consignment was in Melbourne. The courier site was very professionally done and difficult to pick it was a fake. All the while Carlos as I called him was saying he would be coming home soon but always another drama and more and more money all the time. finally when he was supposed to deliver the entry fee money to the courier company and come home as he said he was a resident in Australia and was a widower and wife died some 8 years ago, then another drama occurred. Finally what tipped the balance for me was I got a call from someone sounding like an Indian man saying that there had been a bad car accident and that Carlos and the lawyer were in a critical condition. the money for the courier company was being held by the police and then the courier company asked me for another 25,000 for the non-existent entry fee into Australia. then the so called wellness medical centre kept sending me emails about the condition of Mr Carlos and the lawyer. then finally after some weeks Mr Carlos made a rapid recovery and then the dialogue on facebook turned quite nasty. this was because I would not send the deposit demanded from the wellness centre of another 6,000 dollars. By then I knew that I had been scammed but of course the money is gone and so is Carlos. He even asked for money for meals and toiletries whilst in the wellness clinic. I think I was talking with other people at this time as the nature of the dialogue changed to a more aggressive tone. finally when I said that there would be no more money Carlos just cut off contact. However I believe is still operating from Malaysia as the phone number is still active sometimes. I don't know how they manipulate the phones but sometimes it says the number is disconnected and other times he answers the phone. Once he called me Allison. This is clearly a syndicate operating out of Malaysia and I would love to see them caught. they have exceptional IT skills and there are a number of players in the scam.I know that I have lost my money but worse still is the emotional investment of six months with this man. This is a predator of the worst kind to prey on the compassion of other people to steal their hard earned money all the while pretending to have deep feelings of love for that person. I am submitting this report in the hope that this will help prevent other women from being scammed like this.

Location: Shreveport, Lousiana (Military in Africa)
On web sites: Facebook, Badoo
Report: This man contacted me on Facebook as Saul Brendan. Right away we moved to texting. When he emailed his name said Saul Brenda. He said it was a mistake. He has very broken English which he tried to explain by saying he was born in Spain. His sister is very sick with cancer (he pays for her treatment) he is divorced from a woman who ran off, and he has a 16-year old son. He said he was looking for a woman to share his life (and large amounts of money) with. He told me he owns a nice house in Sheveport, Lousiana and sent me the address and a picture of it. He told me he had to go to Africa for an Army mission. He told me he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He sent lots of poetry he wrote (I later found through google word for word.) He talked to me for about a month and then started telling me that someone stole his wallet. Hmmmm?I sounded suspicious, he sent me a pic of his passport (which had been altered.) He said he needed $20,000 to fly to my state and be with me. He needed to pay his way out of his post in Africa, pay for his replacement, and pay for his leave. His money was tied up and he would pay me back. He sent me an itinerary showing he was flying to my local airport. It had another last name on it, Wesley?? Well, that did it. FB listed that he was born in Spain ? his passport listed Shreveport as his birthplace. (His scam-ring must not know that passports only list the state and USA, not the city and USA.) I could see glue where the pic was replaced. His pics in ?Army? uniforms were not correct ? no patches USA, no ARMY, and no last name on his shirt. Searching online he had a second FB (same photo) with the last name Wesley, a wedding ring, and some seriously bad photoshopping. He is also listed on the dating site Badoo (with the same pictures he gave me, but as younger in age.) Land records show ?his house? belongs to another person. The state department now has the fraudulent passport number, and I?ve sent Badoo a complaint with pics of his FB sites.

Report: I Meet him from tango on November last year(2015). He convice me that he is looking for serious relationship that can lead into marriage. In short we chat on whatsapp everyday but he refused to make video calls..he initiated that he will visit me with his daughter Jenifer (6yo) on Christmas day. He told me that he would send me christmas present that included ring for our engagement, other valuable goods n even money. I kept ask him not to send me anything yet but he insisted that is to show that he was really serious n to show me how much he love me, then finally I agreed. I gave all my details address and my email. He gave me the delivery receipt n told me that all the charges has already paid. 3 days later I got a call from Malaysian number, she told me that she is from delivery agent, she ask me to send money for SGD.800 to release the luggage as it is has to pay for tax to enter my country destination. I ask him how come the Malaysian custom ask me to send money than he ask me that the procedure then I send money under receiver SITI NABILLA BINTI A.RAHMAN (+601126023321 and +60102120836) And the following day that lady call me n told me that she was in custom office with the luggage, she said I have to pay another SGD.1700 to pass the tax. I was so feed up that he told me he already paid all the charges n in the end I still had to pay for a lot of money. He kept urge me to transfer money to lady n he promise me he will give it back once he meet me. And I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me, I send all the total amount of SGD.1700 n the money successfully transfered to that lady i even got notified from my phone that she collected the money immediately after I sent her the code from Western union. After 2 days I got sms from that lady. She pretend to be Malaysian police n threatened me will come on my doorstep of I don't send her another $GD.2000. During this periode he is more likely on that lady side, he keep telling me not to worry about my money. I told him I would make police report against her but he told me not in hurry he worry that he would lost his luggage He promised me will come to my country then go together fly to Malaysia to claim the luggage. He said he have to wait at least a week to get his leave but after 2 weeks he still give me excuse that he still can't travel due his work. This time I realised n 100% sure the both are scammer, I ask him to send me his passport or do video calls n he refused. In this stageI was so pissed off to myself how could I can be so dumb n stupid believe to people that I never meet. I feel like I'm being hypnotized. It happen in about a month I knew him from online then he dissappear n blocked me from the applications he used. I tried to track him use another number but I guess he changed number . I haven't actually make picR report not tell to anyone as I feel ashamed how stupid n easy I am can be cheated by online scammer????

Report: My experience is almost identical to Taliya's, listed here. Only this time, his name is Richard Adams. He expressed interest on OurTime.com. After responding, he asked for my email. He took his profile down. We wrote extensively for a week. Then he said he had just won a contract for a major project abroad. He never called, but sent a text message. I noticed today it had a familiar area code - California, where I used to live. He said he was from Mineola, New York. I thought it was weird, so I started checking. He asked me to cancel my membership before he left, and asked my ring size and asked for a commitment. He said that his parents had died when he was 15 yrs old; that his wife died of lung cancer 4 years ago, and his daughter, son-in-law and one grandson died in a car accident. He said that he was raising his grandson, John, after the death of his family. I asked for his travel plans, and he sent me a copy of the awarding of the EXACT contract shown here addressed to Timothy Lonsdorf, except it shows the name
