Report N1 (added on July, 26, 2017)
I met Ray online at Match. He asked for my personal e-mail address as there was something he didn't like about the responses he was getting from the women on Match. He immediately took his name off of the site. We exchanged rather long e-mails and texts on a daily basis for several weeks His grammar and sentence structure were commiserate with his stated education He said he is a self-employed civil engineer, planning to get out of field work and manage contract bids from home He said he was in Dubai working on an oil rig when an accident happened, causing one man's death and 3 to land in the local ICU. A few days later, he said there were cash flow problems, as Abu Dhabi had loaned Dubai $10 billion and before the government would release the payment for the contract of $13.6 million, he had to pay the taxes of $120 K. He said he could get most of the funds from friends and family, but needed the additional $45 K from me.

I went to my bank, and the bank was unwilling to make a wire transfer without a background check. I contacted the company he stated he was working with/for, Octego Ltd. They responded that he was not an employee nor anyone they had ever heard of. I then did a reverse telephone number check, learned the number is for a landline in Rochester, New York., which also brought me to this site.
Report N2 (added on August, 18, 2017)
Similar to another report on this site Raymond contacted me through Match. Wanted to immediately communicate via personal email. I got the exact same story about being an engineer just finishing up a contract in UAE and then he would be shifting to working from home writing contracts. But, there was a problem finishing the project...accident on the job site which sent 3 to the ICU, then he was detained leaving UAE. Just got another email a month later stating that he had left the UAE and was now in the UK but had been detained once again because he didn't have a certification stating that the funds he was paid out were not terrorism related. I wish I had not deleted all of the other emails I had because I had quite a collection.
I was asked several times for money to help with paying taxes so his funds could be released and then sending money for bail so he could get out of detention in UAE and fly home to me. This went on for almost a month. The emails have started again but thanks to this site now I'm positive it's a scam and not just suspicious.
