NotesYOUR ONLINE FRIEND WAS NOT ARRESTED AT THE AIRPORT.
YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED.


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.

Scammers are still on Facebook
Please, as Facebook still doesn't think the 'guys' I mention before on this page are scammers/fake...keep reporting them. I still feel awful/confused and upset because I believed in this 'romance'. But also because this has to stop now!

Nigerian Romance Scammers in Malaysia
There are many Nigerians living in Malaysia dont have valid documents or visa. They cannot move around, all they do is to sit infront of their computers and steal, scam and fool and play women's emotions just to have money to feed their stomach otherwise they will die in famine. They dont like to work, and very ambitious and social climber and duping women online. Nigerians are very lazy people, all they knew is to eat, sleep, and clubbing and drinking with friends and with these local asian prostitutes who assisted them in claiming the stolen money. Malaysian Immigration Officers nothing to do with them also, they are also corrupt. The government knew they dont have valid visa but they bribed 500rm thats it, you can enter Malaysia and roam around as long as you have 500rm whenever the police authorities halt these nigerians, thats why these Nigerians are hardworking online stealing money. Criminals, Cheaters & Stealers, Heartless. Dont believe when they say "Love" they dont know how to love! Money is more important to them.
