Scam Report(s)



Report N1 (added on October, 28, 2016)

Very convincing, copy of contract for 17.4 m, flight intinary, gave me access to a bank account - supposedly from Amsterdam (is really just a website with server in South Africa), to transfer money from his acct to mine to purchase phones. Sent copies of pictures from the supposed site project. Very romantic and alluring. Called me crying saying he had been stabbed and robbed, his engineer in critical condition. I would up sending him money for attny fees, hotels, flights, you name it. I thought I had done my research but... even the photo he provided on match is not the same photo here. I am just sick to my stomach over the whole thing.
