REPORT N1 (added on March, 27, 2017)
Anne (Canada)

This is JP's story. He is supposed to be a devoted Christian, he has been divorced from his deceased wife (Esa, a drug addict) who was killed in a car accident for more than ten years ago, JP's an independent contractor engineer in the Oil & Gas business. After having finally became more financially stable again, he claimed he was ready to find love again to fill a void in his family, and I was supposed to fill that void. He used to have a full time elderly nanny, who had been looking after his son Sam after Esa died, whether JP was living at home or out of the country working abroad, 3 months at a time.
JP accepted a contract with a company in Malaysia to drill oil in Port Dickson in June 2015, where he got into all kinds of troubles with the observance of Ramadan, he was both fined & penalized for working on those days and for the workers who smoke when they ought to be praying, so he stayed longer than expected. He began to run out of money because of the longer than expected stay at his 5-star hotel, as well as a lot of his money was spent on the rental of the machinery to drill oil, and (he claimed) the workers were very lazy and he had to pay them up front as well as hire a translator to help him communicate with the workers, so there were a lot of unexpected expenses. JP was arrested by the police, for not being able to pay his hotel bill, & the police threatened that they could kill him, and no one would be able to do anything about it. That's when JP started asking me to send him money through MoneyGram. He claimed, since I was his future wife, it was my obligation to help him, since his bank is in Scotland, being an only child and a widower, there was no one in Scotland to help him. When I wired money for the 3rd time to a third party through MoneyGram, my transaction was refused, because they suspect I was being scammed. That's when JP went berserk, claiming that being called a scammer is a great insult for all Scots, and he vouched to sue MoneyGram when he comes to Ottawa to help me move to Scotland. I told him he should put his time & money to better use. Under my advice, JP moved to some place cheaper to save money that neither one of us has. When work was finally done, he did not get paid, he had to set up a commercial account, buy insurance, pay taxes on the money, then to make matter worse, he got dengue fever and needed blood transfusion, all in all I was wiring him money through PayPal, PC Financial, TD, Western Union, until there were no more ways to send him money, so he had to leave Malaysia without getting paid. He promised he would send me money once he got home, but of course that never happened, so I said in that case it's my duty to report him on the scammer's website, he said he would sue me for everything I've got for damaging his reputation. He had also become verbally abusive ever since I stopped sending him money.
What were the incurred costs, other than the handling charges from financial institutions? There was cost to set up the business account, insurance on the cheque, taxes, hospital bill for the blood transfusion, 6 months of lodging in Malaysia, cost for letting his working visa expired, plane fare back to Scotland.

Scam Letters

Romance scam letter(s) from James Patterson to Anne (Canada)
Hello dear Jean, I will start by apologising for not calling all this time, sometimes I want to call then I get nervous cos I dont want to call at the wrong time, you might be busy or your mood not right, you should its a house phone, if it was your mobile number I probably would text you first to find if its a good time to call before I call.

Unconditional love has no special meaning, it means loving someone no matter the situation, for better for worse, in other words we can simply call it true love. When its from the heart it true love. Some people say the words love everyday but is it true love? The kind of love you love someone so much and you get sleepless nights cos of it. Well I'm not a love professional but I do know true love when I see one.

I'm not expecting much from you dear, but if really in your heart you feel like we can make this work then I am willingly to give you my everything, heart, body, mind and soul.
