Report N1 (added on September, 5, 2016)
Scammer got to know me through Okcupid, a global friendship website. He told me that he is a single father with a 10 year old son and looking for a soulmate.
We chatted on the said website for awhile before he asked me to add him to facebook by giving me his profile id.
During our conversation in messenger, he told me he is coming to my country to work and see me. Then he started to send me love messages and clipart to declare his "love" for me.
This went on for a month before he came to my country. Upon his arrival to my country, he told me that he has checked into a hotel and bought a new prepaid cellphone number. He gave me the cellphone number and asked me for mine.
Then at night he called me to tell me that he needed RM3500 for custom clearance as he has exhausted all his money. He asked me to loan him the money but i told him i dont have any money. He then asked me to borrow it from my friends.
The next day, he called me again and asked for the money. Then he used messenger to text/persuade me to help him but i repeatedly told him i cant help him. He got angry and cursed me.
Two weeks later, he text me in messenger to say that he is in the hospital and needed balance RM12,000 for his leg operation. He asked me to take advance salary from my boss or use my name to ask people/friends to help him (after he sent a photograph of himself in the hospital). I lied to him that my boss wont allow me to take advance salary and nobody want to help me. My name is unlucky name as upon hearing it, nobody wanna help, not even the banks.
Again he got angry and cursed me. Then he used excuses to ask me to top up his cellphone credit for him. The three excuses were (1) he was trapped somewhere and cannot come out, (2) & (3) he was in the hospital and cant walk. He need to call his country. I lost RM40 for believing his stories.
