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.

If you ever accept this money, remember it will make you a MONEY MULE.He is not sending you his money because it is not what scammer do. He will send you the money from other victims and you will do the money laundry for him, which is federal crime and will put you in the prison as well as many other victims.

This is what POLICE, FRAUDAID and FBI says :
Below is information regarding re-shipping scams and consequences.

Online criminal groups have gone to great lengths to recruit mules in recent years. Social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter have all been used to recruit individuals willing to let their bank account be used to receive a transfer from an illegal account, then forward it along. In turn, the FBI has said that it was going to be stepping up efforts to crack down on money mules.
Alternatively the ‘mule’ may be asked to receive goods, purchased online through fraudulently obtained funds, and requested to forward these on to an overseas address. A promised payment may sometimes be arranged, however in most romance scam related cases, promises of a new life together often substitute any monetary gain for the victim.
Have you met someone online that has asked you to receive funds or goods on their behalf? Quite simply, this is money laundering and any individual assisting these criminals can be prosecuted and have their whole bank account frozen. A conviction for an offence of money laundering may carry a penalty of up to 20 years imprisonment.
If you have received money in your bank account, or have received and/or forwarded goods under these circumstances, please immediately report the incident to your bank and your local police station.

This guy willing to helps me by sending 10k Malaysia dollars to me.
Let's forget whether this is a scam or true..I just would like to inquire what is the best way for him to send money to me.
at least I will know this is a true friend. As for the money, of cause I will pay him back. So, what is the best and safer way? By TT or by diplomat ?

to all
EVEN IF YOUR RELATION WITH YOUR MAN IS A MONTH OR SO, NEVER NEVER SEND MONEY TO THEM. EVEN IF HE MET YOU IN PERSON AND MEET YOUR FAMILY, STILL NEVER EVER SEND HIM MONEY. WHY? MEN WHO LOVE YOU WILL NOT ASK MONEY. HELP HIM ONLY IF YOUR WEEDING BELLS HAD RUNG.

Hi Rose J,

My advise is for you to contact the banks through the enquiry/feedback or email.

Like for my situation, I didn't transfer any money but I enquired or emailed to any relevant airport, airline, website I can think of to check on the person.
