REPORT N1 (added on May, 22, 2017)
Dorothy (UK)

I was the one who initiated contact on Match. Thought his profile was quite decent and he did mention that he did not go onto that website that often but if you could work out his email address and send and email. I worked out what his email should be and sent an email. I received a reply about 6 weeks later I had forgotten that I had sent it. We corresponded on a regular basis and he gave me details about himself. His wife who had been a Paris Fashion Model had passed away a few years earlier. His father had been an international businessman and had been German and his mother who is still alive was Australian. He had been educated in Australia but chose to use his father's nationality German on his passport. He had also obtained a First Degree in Engineering and had his own business. I have an invoice for his business as he was trying to sell some machinery in order to pay me back We corresponded for quite a few months before he suggested we talk via Yahoo Messenger which I downloaded onto my laptop in order to talk to him. He said he was out in the Philippines on a contract for some company base in Sweden on an oil rig named the Pearl Oil Rig, which of course I googles and it appeared to be legitimate. There subsequently was an accident and he sorted out the families involved as he felt he had been responsible no mention of money then. He then went to get payment for the job in question and he was denied payment for some reason or another. His passport was seized and he had no way of leaving the country. He then had some for of accident in which he ended up in hospital. This was when he started to ask for money. I sent over small amounts to begin with to himself and also to the so call Doctor in question who also collected the money. At one point the money was not collected so I took it back. The money was sent via Western Union. He eventually came to leave the country and he did send me a copy of his flight unfortunately I didn't keep it. When he got to the airport he got stopped yet again because he had a cheque on him and for some reason he did not have proof for the payment that he had received and was also told that he needed to pay taxes on the money received I subsequently sent over about 9k but not to him but to some company in China in which he said this was where the money had to go to as it was owed to them. I sent over quite a few large amounts via bank transfer and the others via Western. I have asked him to return all funds which were owed to me. I did receive money into my bank account which of course I should have kept and transferred into another account, but at his insistence money had to be sent to some company in China as he owed them money. Consequently this money had been sent to me in error and the sending bank tried to reclaim the full amounts that had been sent and in doing so cleared out my bank account. This has happened on more than one occasion and the bank has since closed down my account. .When I challenged him on this he has denied all knowledge of knowing anything about this. In total I have given him about ?43 000 in total, the last amount which was within the last month. Which of course he said he never received and wants me to get more for him. He had assured me that I would get the whole amount owed to me plus interest back by the 5th May which of course has now come and gone. He even has the nerve to ask me to get an equity loan on my house which of course I do not own as it was left in a deceased estate and has to be split. Which of course I would not dream of doing. He did send me pictures of himself, also a Promissory Letter for an amount which he owed me which was supposed to be done by an Attorney. I also have letters for a so called sale of equipment which I insisted that I have before I would even try to help him out. I have tried to get in touch with the Attorney but have not received a reply and the email has not bounced back. I did receive a cheque for a certain amount for some accountant which was from a company based in the US and tried to follow up with him but that email has come back as non deliverable.
