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.

ABOUT WHATSAPP AND SCAMMERS
When you reply to the scammer the way you did, that is exactly what they are expecting from the victim; maintaining contact as long as they can - to get you as upset as possible, then either suck you back in to the scam or destroy your devices; as they did mine for opening an email.
When you reply to the scammer or any of his scam ring members, you are allowing the scammer the amount of "seconds" needed to load an electronic virus onto your device/s. If the scammer asked you to open an application/program so you can have contact, then your divice is hacked.

That is how scammers get into victims devices (PC, phones, etc.).
WhatsApps program is a favorite app scammers ask victims to load up because the app allows the hacker to take over control of your device. The scammer will mirror your contacts list and private information, they can erase information, change passwords and lock you out of your account and/or your device.
Whatsapps, was suppose to have these features for parental control; but scammers/hacker have taken control.
It is humiliating that a scammer can have this power over their victims.

Please scan your communications devices for virus/programs that scammers may have installed onto them.

Please be safe than sorry.
Do not give the scammer the pleasure of taking joy of their victims frustration once the damage is done.
Give scammers the SILENT treatment "hand in face". They do not understand it, nor do they know how to respond to it.
It is like giving a kid an imitation toy that has no movable parts, what do I do with it.

Bank is more important right now. Police will take raport and that's all. In the mine time he can deposit more stolen money. That is money laundry for terrorists, human trafficking, drug smuggling. This is important to have this done in fraud department

Magda, I already gave you the best advice. You gave your info to terrorists. Philipina is part of the gang and everything you hear it's a lie. Do you honestly think that they will tell you a true??? They want your money and they not care if you rnd up dead or in jail.
Right now you are a part of yhe gang too. You became a MULE . He did not deposit money back to your account. The money came from another victims bank wire and is deposited for laundering. You have to go to bank fraud department as soon as possible. Each bank had disclaimer that if someone deposit money to your account from stolen founds you became compliance with thief. Read my comments and you will see that you are heading straight for prison. This philina wantsbher money back and that's why she pulls you into the scam, The true is scammer will never pay you back. Look to my older comments, file police resports, because only this way you may be cleared and not get aressted.
