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.

This scammer is not UK citizen ,he is Nigerian and you will not get help from UK.Those phone numbers are redirecting and you can use them any where in the world and they look like call from UK. This is what you should do :

Is he from the UK?
I am in the process of trying to track and get information about a scammer that has taken me for a lot of money. It was the typical “love scam” scenario and because I had never experienced anything like it and was the perfect mark I got hooked and taken. I have been researching the various scams and because his original IP address pinged in the KL area of Malaysia and some of the money I sent went through banks in the same area I feel certain that the man and the syndicate he works with is located in the Kuala Lumpur area. I am not sure who to report it to. He says he is from the UK. His accent and his spelling are consistent with that part of the world being where he was educated or spent his earlier years growing up. I have also noted that his IP address was in the +8 time zone from our initial contact in December 2013 until Mid May 2014. His IP address is now in time zone +1. I am guessing he has relocated or is visiting out of the area. I need to file reports in Malaysia and wherever else I need to file. I am not sure whether he is from England or not. The +1 time zone could be the United Kingdom or it could be Nigeria or somewhere else in that zone. Do you have any advice about how to best track the IP address or the header information in an email?

Also, FYI I tried the Readnotify.com service that you have recommended and I have an important observation to pass along. I was going to try using it on my “scammer” as we are still communicating because he doesn’t know I have figured him out. But before I sent an email to him using the service I tried it on a friend. What I discovered is this – my email address had additional letters added after the .com part. Very obvious to anyone that it was not my normal email address. And in the body of the email header there was information that actually indicated that I was using Readnotify.com. If this “scammer” knows a little about computers or is even slightly computer savvy he will see that my email address has changed and I will have tipped my hand. I am not ready for him to know that I am on to him. I can not recommend Readnotify.com unless you can explain a way not to expose my using it. Pass that on to anyone wanting to use that service. I would have been busted and lost my connection.

I have my “catfish love scammer” on the line still. Is there anyway to work with authorities to catch him since I can be used as a connection? Please help direct me somewhere for help. I am in American and don’t have information or connections in Malaysia. I would like to bring down the whole syndicate. Thank you.
