REPORT N1 (added on April, 26, 2016)
Jane (USA)

This person contacted me through Match. Started wth romantic letters and texts I later found on your website. I was surprised by his sudden falling in love with me and his insistence of having found the woman of his life after the death of his first wife. Then he started asking for money in several occasions arguing he had to travel to Estonia for a problem with his company. He started asking for $75,000 then 25,000, and finally 10,000 which I never sent.. Apparently his company had a seroious accident and ir order to avoid going to court, local police asked him for a bravery and he did not have enough money to cover it. He mentioned that the police took his passport to make sure he would not leave the country. He used mind games to continue pressuring until I did enough research to discover him. I ever received a fake bank account.
REPORT N2 (added on May, 19, 2016)
Sarah (USA)

I joined match and in a couple of days I was contacted by Mr. Kelly saying he liked my photo and would like to get to know me better. We started texting and after about two weeks he said he had to go to Estonia for a problem with a building site that he had a contract on building. After being there for a couple of weeks he sent me a copy of his bank statement to show me how much money he had in the bank. Then he ask to borrow money because he couldn' get any of of his account because he had a limit he could take out in a foreign country. I told him I didn't have any he keep pleading and begging and I was in a distressed state of mind because my husband had passed away a few months ago. After the first amount he keep at me constantly to send him more. I told him the only what I could come up with any money was to take out a loan I really couldn't afford. He assured me he would have the money back in a week before the first payment came due. I sent him $25000.00 to a company in GA the first amount went to a address in NY state. I have deleted all of the texts. I still have copies of the bank statement that I printed out from Bank of America . The addresses of the places I wired the money.
