REPORT N1 (added on March, 30, 2016)
Trish (USA)

He charmed his way into my life on Zoosk, saying he loved me and he wants to marry me.We exchanged emails and numbers.
He says he is a business man. So he went to Cape Town on a business trip and when he attempted to check in a hotel his card was declined. He maintained he comes all the way from Republic of Pamana of which he was using a foreign account.
So he contacted his bank and they said it would take 14 working days to sort it out. He wanted R15000 from me. That's when the drama started. Thank God I'm wiser!

Hi, Pamela.
