REPORT N1 (added on June, 16, 2014)
Roxanne (USA)

He contacted me on Match saying it was the last day on his account. We communitcated from May 1, 2014 until June 12, 2014. He said he was a General Fund Manager for Vanguard Investment International and their corporate office was in Kent UK. He tried to get me to wire $23,600 to a Suisse Bank to open an account.
REPORT N2 (added on June, 24, 2014)
Chris (USA)

I met this man on Match. Have never met in person, just corresponding thru E-Mail from May 1 to June 18, 2014 also talked on the phone a few times. He said he is a Consultant Fund Manger for Vanguard Investment International.Received documents just like the ones that are posted, I believed and did a wire transfer of $28,600 to JJA STERLING LLC ACCOUNT #151703945346. Please i feel like a fool and want to make sure no other woman goes thru this and loses their money from men that are dishonest with very believable stories. i was skeptical at first but with all the documents that was sent and the Swiss Bank looked legitimate.
REPORT N3 (added on July, 11, 2014)
Pam (USA)

My experience was exactly the same - met on Match, used the same email addresses and phone numbers, same story about Vanguard, and tried to get me to send $28,000 to open an account in order to get $11 million from an oil deal in Dubai. Fortunately, I became suspicious and refused to send any money. Phone calls and emails stopped on June 30, 2014. Beware!

Wow ! Thank you! Thank you. Thank you for responding to my email request to contact me through my private email; I know it was unusual for me to request that you email through my personal email when you do not even know me. I am glad that you did because I would have lost contact with you as my subscription has expired and I can no longer access my Match.com account. Anyway, that is by-the-way since I can still reach you via your private email, am so excited. Once again, thank you.

I hope you are having a nice week, mine has been a busy one as my office is relocating to a new building which is a permanent site. I have also been In and out of town this past week so it was really a long week till yesterday. I have sorted my busy schedule out and now free so let talk about my personal life and love .Lol.
