REPORT N2 (added on April, 20, 2020)
Sarah (UK)

Was contacted by Anthony following a match on Tinder. We began messaging on there on 7 March and very quickly established contact via Whatsapp on 8th March. He told me he was involved in construction with a large local company. He said he was originally from Qatar and had lost his mother last year which rendered him alone, apart from a daughter he had had with a previous partner who was a drug addict and had cheated on him numerous times. He wanted to be his own boss and was in the process of securing a contract in Cyprus. We first talked on the phone via Whatsapp on 23rd March. He said he was busy preparing his presentation for his interview. He first asked for an itunes voucher to help him download something from Microsoft Word. I declined saying I wasn't going out. He left for Cyprus on 28th March ready for his interview on 30th March. He said he had to go back to hear the results of the interview on 31st March and was pleased to say he had been awarded the contract. He was going back the next day to sign the documents. After he had cleared the trucks which were coming over from China he would look at sorting a flight to come home. I found that quite strange as we're in the middle of lockdown and hardly any flights were leaving or arriving back in the UK. On 7th April he sent me details to say he had been to the port to clear the trucks but that he didn't have enough money to complete the clearance. That is when he asked me for money. He said a friend would lend him some but if I could too. I told him I didn't have any money. He said he would have to go back to the company and see whether they could release an advance for him to clear the trucks. He sent me more information on 13th April to say that although he had the cheque he was being asked to pay a further 4780 Euros to provide a Business Requirement Specification Document. He again asked for money. Could I borrow some from friends or family and he promised to pay it back immediately. I questioned him about being genuine and he assured me he was etc. It was only when I spoke to my friend that he looked up Anthony's details and they appeared here on this site I knew that he was scamming me. I confronted him and he denied it - saying someone must have hacked my phone to bring us sadness. I spoke with him a few more times. I blocked him on 14th April after he had tried to call me many times.
