NotesONLINE ROMANCE SCAMS

Have you been having conversations online with someone you've never met before who claims to live in the UK? Has he told you that he will come to visit you in Malaysia? And now is he frantically contacting you because he are being held at the airport, and needs you to pay a fine so he can be freed?

It is a scam. There is no romance, and there is nobody being detained at KLIA. The same person who was chatting online with you was also chatting online with many other victims. They are trying to trick you into sending money to an accomplice. Once you have sent the money they will disappear forever. Every year these scammers bilk unsuspecting victims out of thousands of ringgit. Don't be one of them.

Damian Weil says from Houston Texas
sent me a message on fb, then for months talked, then he said he had to go to London and then from London to kuala lampur to receive an inheritance check. Asked for money to help him open an account to put the 3.5ml check in. now when I told him hes a scammer he has deleted his facebook. beware he uses a check for Maybank and a letter saying his late father Phillip Khan Weil.

Tom Hanson and more scammers
Just realize that Tom Hanson's friends (still on Facebook) David Walker Belfast and James Sinclair (maybe the same Person) are scammers too. Must be a Connection with false identities. Be careful. They all use what I call the "Scammers Manual"

Naughty Linda from Nigeria
Linda - why would the "Attorney General of Police in USA" get involved with a loan deal in Nigeria? Your "flag" shows where you are from. And in most of the world "Mrs." is for women and you are calling your loan officer a "HE". And YOU are also "Linda" - How many identities do you play?

I've been contacted about a year ago on a private facebook message by a man saying he is engineer on oil rig and from Manchester UK, had a son at university and all at once said he had to travel to Kuala Lumpur for his own business. While there problems occured and he needed money to get out of it and of course i was the only person that could help him, my future husband. Just a little amount at the beginning that i sent him, and he needed more and more. This went on for many months. Of course i did not have that money to give him. He kept trying. A nightmare, as he was promising to come and see me in my country. Ask me to look for house where i live and so on, mariage and all. I hope no one will get on his trap, he is still on Badoo and Dateyou.me as he goes on the name of edmondgil@yahoo.com, he used to show as brittjohn85...I have since recovered from this, because i had the chance to read information here and on other sites. I'm glad you all exist.Please don't give any credibility to this man, he is Nigerian, his voice on the phone was strange and a little creepy. Thanks to all of you and be blessed.

they are honest and there loan are secure
It really is teeming with scammers on the internet, really not normal. In one week I lost 500usd for payments. I had inquiries made ??at Dandy Cash.com
came just disappointed. I would recommend anyone to advertise on the site.I’ve only tried it a different website, and when I had finally found someone
who was still honest (lindaparkerloancompany@gmail.com) Because he asked me in advance, but doubted he could give evidence and so I took the risk anyway
and I was able to borrow from him. 30000usd,please dont email anybody said to be a loan lender in this website because they are all scams,they
disappoint me and run away with my 500usd,Mrs linda parker is the only one i trust because he gave me the loan i needed,,please do not email anyone in
this website because they are scams they pretend to be loan lenders they rip people of their hard earned money the USA Attorney General Of Police are
searching for this guys in the internet right now so dont email this guys please they will rip you off like they did to

Naughty Mrs. Benita
Mrs. Benita - - - - - If you are really in New Jersey then why does the "flag" in your post link you to Ghana? I hope you are not trying to trick innocent people into thinking your testimonial is "real"? I also hope you understand how "God" would judge your leading his children into the wolve's din.
