REPORT N1 (added on November, 18, 2016)
Logan (USA)

I met Mark Kovacs through an Online Dating Website OurTime in November, 2015 (He sent me an email). We first communicated via Email through the Website; then, we exchanged phone numbers and talked regularly. He stated he was of Hungarian Descent; and was living in Chicago (Where I'm also from); though he was self-employed (Architect); a Widower (With 2 Adult Daughters, living in Hungary); and traveled internationally for his job.
In December, 2015; while working on assignment in Turkey, he was involved in a terrible Auto Accident (Of which he was severely injured; along with a native Turkish Citizen~~as he was scheduled to return to Chicago on Christmas Eve, 2015). While healing in the hospital, he stated to me that he wouldn't be able to return to Chicago until the case of the Auto Accident was settled (Per Turkish Law). This lasted several months; as he was trying to get money to me to help him leave the country.
Then, on August 2, I had received notification from my Bank that I had received a deposit of $10,000 (Of which Mark gave me advance notification); and once the funds were cleared, I was to transfer this money to a 3rd Party (LaDonna Torrance) (Within the US). 4 days later, I withdrew $3800 from the deposited funds, and proceed to transfer the money to Ms. Torrance (Receiving Institution: Bank of America). On August 8, I received notification from my Bank the account of which the transfer that Mark had sent to me was closed abruptly; leaving me to reimburse my bank. During the course of the month, Mark kept assuring me a Wire Transfer for the $3800 would be made; but, it NEVER happened. The last time we spoke was on September 6.
As of November 15, his phone number is disconnected.

Romance scam letter(s) from Mark Kovacs to Logan (USA)
Thank you. I am glad you feel that way. Besides my family I think my job is what I am most proud of.
What do you do you do for a living if you don't mind me asking. By the way do you mind talking on the phone?

Honestly I think you have pretty much said it all. I like intelligent people, spirituality,loyalty pretty much everything you have said is more than enough to be valued. You sound like you have a good sense of self respect. I like that.
You profile says you do not have any kids, I hope you do not mind that I have two. I have to say you have a very beautiful smile. I am not the best at writing these types of emails so I hope I do not come across as boring. Will be nice to learn more about you and hopefully you can do the same. Bye for now and talk again soon. By the way my name is Mark. What would you like to be Called?
