Report: Contacted me on Match.com. Claimed to be a widower of 10 years, working for Barclays as a foreign funds manager. Within a month, his mother alleged died, and his company was inconsiderate in their treatment of him. He tendered his resignation and decided to join in the last fund trade with his retirement money and money from the sale of his house in Texas. He then asked if he could name me as a partner in this transaction instead of using anyone from his family. I guess this would have been insider trading but I did not realize that at the time. After the alleged transaction was complete, the funds were to be sent to a Swiss account from Barclays and then transferred to my personal bank account. This was done, except that suddenly a transfer tax was necessary, amounting for more than $422,000. How was this to be paid? He asked for my help

Two weeks into our communication, he Began to inquire about my occupation, the balance on my mortgage, my annual salary and very personal and intrusive. He bragged about his opulent lifestyle. Yet he asked me to help him financially. I refused because I think it is rude, in poor taste and lack decorum to ask someone for money; especially someone you have never seen.
