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.

I have same problem. One day, a man send me request on facebook, I have accidently accepted him (I never accept anyone that I don't know). After that he sent message to say thank you for accepted him, and say sweetwords to me. one day later, he recommended for a relationship, saying that he's CEO of his own business and share me a link http://gapsing-engineering.webs.com/ saying that this is his own company, and he's MD in UK.
he said he loves me a lot and want to visit me in Vietnam and asked me to pick him at the airport. on the following day, he call me (on Skype) saying that he brang so much cash (630K) and the Customs doesn't allow and he must pay money to get the luggages and asked me to access to a site to transfer money to my bank account, then send money to him. I denied because I think this is unbelievable, but keep on saying that I don't have good heart, that he was on that trouble because of visting me. He gave me a bank account of a local person and asked me to transfer money to that account then he can get money from his agent in Malaysia. I know this is scammer.

scammers on fb
I believe these scammers have targeted women on fb. I have 5 that i can name. They are all from UK. Sadly to say i fell for one of their scam too. He said he was coming to my country to see me and that he has sent me a parcel. But malaysian custom found currencies in the parcel. And from then on I had to pay for all the charges but to-date i have yet to receive the parcel. It has been like 6 months already.
