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.

Harris Cooper - Romance Scammer
Hello Cindy, I had the same message on facebook from a guy using the name of Harris Cooper and a marine engineer and was sailing for his last time to Australia. We did email for a few weeks from the end of April 2013 to end of May,but when he told me about the Somali pirates and that he wanted to send me $470,000 for safety I told him that I did'nt want anything to do with it as I was waiting for something like this. In no time at all his profile had been removed from facebook. his email address was as you say harriscooper13@yahoo.com. he sent me a lot of lovely photos, even when he was a baby and a young child with his parents. I was'nt a victim,but feel sorry for the guy in the photos' as he was not the scammer.

chatting via FB with someone from england
i have met someone via FB and chatting with him for a months. He always said that he loves me and want to be with me soon. He also said want to marry with me one day. until 1 day.. He told me that he has sending me a money with amount 500,000 pounds for my personal use. he asked me for my details so its easy for him to send that money thru' my personal account. I was so excited and agreed. So i gave him all my details except my PIN no. Then, on monday June 18, he told me that he had transfered the money to my account thru' British High Commission UK. I ask him to prove all the transaction by sending me a certificate of deposit and etc..and yes, i received all the documents i requested by an email. i already paid RM4,600 to get my british clearance certificate to someone called T.yugaletchumy thru' her personal account. Yesterday,The BHC officer, mr albert hugges called me and said that i have to make a payment once again to pay for government tax before the transaction of the money will succesfully transfered to my account. They give me 24 hrs to make a payment to them and if i did not pay today, all the money will be confiscated. I told my story to my best friend and he advice me to do not pay the money as requested because he feel something is goin' wrong. He also told me that it was a cyber syndicate. So, today , i make a decision to do not make a payment to them because i feel the same way with my friend. This is all not true. For the man who always said you love me, i am getting over with you from now on. i regrets for all what happen to me . I should not trust you very easy.
