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.

Another poster here mentioned that the bank account she used to wire money to her scammer has been under investigation by the bank. So, it's look like reporting it to the bank is working. So, go ahead and report. Also encourage others to report.

I am not aware of the broader bank oversight in Asia. This matter is dealt with internally by each country. China may be a lot more difficult to reach given their restrictions on internet and language. But you can try googling the bank and the counterpart of their Federal Bank in the US. All you can do is try and hope for the best.

Loretta and Mona Lisa
Thank you both so much for information regarding the banks in Malaysia. Also, for the contact information. I will follow up and report the fraud/scam to them in the hopes it will help notify the banks of these crimes.
I also wired money through The Bank of Communications in China to the scammers in Malaysia. That obviously complicates my situation. Any advice regarding crossing country lines? Are there any broader banking oversights there in Asia?

Loretta - you have definitely convinced me that there is a Nigerian connection with the Malaysian syndicates. In addition, I recorded an accidental "butt call" with the scammers talking in a different language, possible Nigerian. Are there any online services that can interpret languages - may provide interesting leads? Thanks for the advice!

I am sorry but in the moment you send the money IT IS GONE.
Western Union will paid out the money anywhere in the world who knows the MTCN number. There is no way to trace the phone doe to VOIP . You will never find who scammed you as everything is fake.
