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.

Loretta - thanks for you insights
Loretta,
Thank you for the clarification and depiction of the profile and description of the scammer and the scamming experience. You are doing an amazing service trying to warn the un—scammed from falling victim. I just hope that more people learn from this forum and not through personal experience. Would you know whether there have been any convictions of these cases in the Malaysian courts? Do the police there act on the reports? I did file the IC3 with the FBI and a fraud report with the US Embassy there in KL. I also filed a report with the RMP there. I also filed a report with the EFCC in Nigeria as I feel certain there is a connection as you have indicated. Is there anything that can snap the scammer out of their behavior or does lacking conscience mean they can not be converted? Can the press in KL help the victims? Is there a religious slant there that allows the scammer to so easily target women from the west? Again, thanks for you service and information!

Yes , this is what scammers do. They work on scripts.they learn from old movies how to be charming.

Scammers feel no empathy, there is no guilt associated with a scam. They have no conscience. That's what it means to be a sociopath.
At a very young age, kids are trained and schooled to learn to manipulate and control online users once they are in contact with a target. Added to this is the fact that such manipulation leaves them without any feeling of guilt or remorse. Scammers begin to shed any emotions like crying, feeling sorry, shame, etc. To the contrary, it leaves them with a feeling of satisfaction that encourages them to continue manipulating victims, regardless of the cost to the giver, the targeted victims.
They are self-educated and know how to be extremely sociable, although they are anti-social which means lacking any social conscience. Their charm and sincerity are empty of any real concern. They have the innate ability to easily compartmentalize their different characters, victims, and on-going scams.
The scammer can access each current script with the speed of a computer; and if they cannot quite remember a script (or lie), they can dance around the lapse so convincingly that you will seldom, if ever, notice.
All in all, with time and training, the scammer is a master psychologist.
The scammer is a psychological illusionist, able to convince anyone to believe in the illusion he created.
From the very moment a scammer targets you; his entire arsenal of psychological manipulation is brought into play. You are moved from a position of control to one of no control. The scammer moves into the position of supreme power, regardless of how powerful you may be in real life.
You are the only character in the scam that hasn't a clue as to what is really happening. The only choice given you is to react to what the scammer is saying and doing.
Reality is gone, you just don't know it - your real world has been completely and effectively replaced with that of the scammer, and the scam ring.
Once the scam is over, suddenly, without warning, you have to come to terms with the fact that you have been scammed,—The effect is devastating - it was planned to be — From the initial start of a scam you are kept off balance so that you feel you must cling to the scammer for support. During the entire manipulation, you are being emotionally positioned so that when the scammer disappears, you will feel as if you were pushed off into oblivion. In effect, you were.

To Sharon & Loretta
I was scammed out of a lot of money before I realized what was happening to me. Some of my family and friends said they thought I was under some kind of mind control. After I snapped out of it and looked back over the 3 month period I was wiring money it truly was as though I was brainwashed, under a voodoo or Juju spell, mind controlled or whatever name you want to call it. I just was doing whatever he asked. Thank God I only wired money and did not get into any other activities. Is that what you experienced? Where did you meet them in person?
Loretta is that a common experience?

Scammers try to make you their MULE. You receive gift from stolen Credit cards, This way your name is on the list in case other victim will notify police. Also they establishing your address this way.

Ami they use READNOTIFY, you need to go to the website and you can also sign up and track emails. You can learn how to read IP it is very easy. But most of host are covering IP and scanmers can also mask that.
