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.

A Guy,

You're right, he's now asking for help in indirect way, i mean, he has so many alibi just to ask money to pay for his bill in the hospital. Oh my God, can't believe he's possibly one of them. For almost one year we'd been communicating, and had no trace of doubts that he can do this. Just so thankful for news i'd heard about this kind of scam and with this site who warned me with this kind of people. Am almost a victim. Thanks a lot.

So far anyone send money to this account?
or only talk about it? shall report to police before next victim?

Yeah, already thought about it. we had communication back now, he said he's still in the hospital and getting better, but he never ask money yet to pay for his bill. I'm cautious already, just observing him what's his next move. What's important is that, am aware about their modus operandi, and won't ever send money to them.

Thanks anyway..

To Mira
Mira, anyone can get a phone number from any country. There are online services that make it cheap and easy. So you cannot trust the country code as an indication of where someone is.

Thanks for the info, well, we'd been communicating this man since he was in uk, one of my proof is the number his using is actually a cellular number with country code from uk until he reached malaysia, he has also pictures on facebook and he also sent me pictures on phone, but am not sure also if he's really true or just having identity thief, that's why i cannot post the pictures they used to sent me because of that reason, and in fareness to the true identity of the picture. Well, i tried to contact the british high commission in malaysia to check if this name really reported in their office, but i don't know why they cannot tell me if this name is genuine.
