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.

RomanceScam does all types of scam. You need to register to view and private message (PM) the administrator for questions and guidance.

The authorities do not usually respond, but if you try to give them a call, they will probably give you the status.

Do most scammers move a lot?
I am a woman from the US that was scammed very seriously during the first couple of months in 2014. I have been following this blog and many of you have shared very good information about what to do afterwards. Thanks!

I have reported the crime to many agencies and organizations from the US to Malaysia and added Nigeria. He said he was UK and US citizen and I am sure he is not. I have not heard back from anyone I reported the crime to???

I am still tracking him and have gotten some really great info. The "lad" accidently "butt called" me from a "cyber café" in Lagos Nigeria. I discovered he was an Igbo man speaking Ibo, and some Pidgin English. Interesting for a man that only speaks the Queens English - NOT! Luckily, I am creating resources daily and found a local Law Professor, schooled in Nigeria from the same tribe - got some great insights about the workings of these scammers.

Also, here is a new tool I found for tracking IP Addresses: http://www.iptrackeronline.com/index.php?ip_address=
I got great geo-locational info on a Yahoo email header. I was able to cross reference his IP address to Seri Kembangan, Selangor, Malaysia near the Mines area. The exact ping showed up for a Classic 419 Scammer also named Zouheir Hani Moussly (175,142,201,187) and my scammer (210, 195,116,113). Has anyone out there come across that name before? The guy that scammed me called himself "Dwayne" which I now know is a lie but the other name shows up when I do a Google search so I am guessing he is real? I feel very certain that the scam occurred while he was in Malaysia and before returning to Nigeria.

Do the romance scammers also do the 419 scams or are those "Lads" generally a different lot? Any input would be appreciated!

Przerwij komunikacje natychmiast i bez slowa. On nie jest z UK tylko Nigeryjski student w malezji. Ja tez bylam oszukana przez studenta z Nigerii w Malezji.
Uzywal telefonu z Anglli , potem udawal ze wyjechal do Malezji az sie pomylil i zadwonil z nigeryjskiego numeru.
Oni uzywaja REDIRECTING NUMBERS tzn,ze moga soboe wstawic numer tel z dowonlego miejsca na ziemmi a sa w NIgerii Ghanie Albo Ghanie.
