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.

LAPORAN, LAPORAN, LAPORAN KE BANK MANA ANDA DIHANTAR WANG !!!

ANDA MEMPUNYAI pecah TALIAN PAIP YANG SAMPAIKAN BARANG UNTUK SCAMMERS.The THE garis utama adalah bank-bank yang digunakan untuk menerima dana yang dihantar oleh mangsa melalui pemindahan wayar. Melalui bank-bank, yang penipu boleh meminta mangsa mereka dengan cepat menghantar mereka berpuluh-puluh dan beratus-ratus ribu wang yang tidak boleh sebaliknya dihantar melalui pintu masuk yang lain, seperti Western Union yang mempunyai maksimum $ 2,000 / hari.

Jadi, kepada semua mangsa-mangsa ini penipu jahat, jangan takut dan malu untuk menghubungi bank di mana anda menghantar wang. Dengan melaporkan kepada bank, tidak meningkatkan harapan anda bahawa wang anda akan diperolehi semula. Walau bagaimanapun, anda membantu berhenti jenayah ini. Dengan menghubungi bank-bank, anda membuat mereka sedar akan aktiviti-aktiviti pemegang bank mereka yang boleh mengakibatkan pembatalan akaun.

HELP DEFEAT THIS CRIME!
It may take time, but all of those scammers will have their judgement day. They may be enjoying now the money they TOOK AWAY FROM YOU, but such happines is NOT WITHOUT END.

It has been proven time and time again - that the arm of justice IS LONG and will reach them no matter what.

Scam Victims - let your voices be heard. Do not be ashamed. Just like any victim of other types of crime, you need to speak up. REPORT TO THE BANK. Listen and believe all the posters here (Ami Coy, Mona Lisa, Nixon, etc.).

Always believe - Good deeds ALWAYS overpower bad.

Report the SCAMMERS
To all of the nice folks that are being scammed by the Malaysians and the Nigerians. I agree that if each of us starts reporting to the banks and they are bombarded with reports about scammers using their banks to launder money maybe we can all create enough concerns that the banks will have to address the issue.

Here is a link to a story in The Star newspapers in Malaysia last week. 08072014
Banks treated like criminals for anti-money laundering lapses: StanChart exec

http://www.thestar.com.my/Business/Business-News/2014/08/07/Banks-treated-like-criminals-for-antimoney-laundering-lapses/

I can’t believe the banks should complain when they need to do more due diligence to keep criminals from using their banks to rob innocent people blind. I encourage everyone to get their stories out to the banks, the government, the authorities, the police, and the press. Soon they will hear us! Good luck everyone!!!!

I am from the US and I am guessing we are from all over the world. I have contacted the American Embassy in KL, Malaysia and talked to Bon Fleming. She is actively involved with the scamming issue. Here is the contact email address for the fraud department: KLFraudReports@state.gov and also email to: klacs@state.gov

Thanks to Loretta, Mona Lisa, LaLa, Istover and Nixon for taking an active stand and helping supply valuable information and assistance.

Istover - THIS CRIME HAS to STOP and YOU CAN HELP!!!

If you sent money to these people by wire transfers to their bank accounts in Malaysia, you can report to the bank and say that those accounts are being used for scam activities. The banks are required by law to investigate if they received a report and might close their account. Review Mona Lisa's postings on this website for information on where to report.

Give complete details, for example:

Bank Name: Maybank Berhad
Account Number: 123456789
Account Name: Siti Khadijah Binti
Swift Code:
Bank Address

Man named Douglas Alfred
Said he was a Engineer in London. Met me on facebook. Talked for months. Said he love me and wanted to marry. Said his family was killed in a car accident. Wife and two daughters. Said he is very lonely. I believed him and then he took a job contract in KL Malaysia. Got there and Malaysia took is passport and wouldn't let him leave until the job was complete and he owed them $74000 US dollars for non resident tax. That took all the money he had with him and begged me to help him so he could go home. I have currently sent $9,500 and he keeps asking for more. I think he is lying. I don't have any more money anyway. Now I will have to pay it back because I had to borrow it. I am such a fool. I felt sorry for him.Hencried and begged me to help him and promised to pay all the money back.
