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.

Malaysia Romance scammers
Translation by Google
A savvy scammer used the Internet Pilfered photographs of former Prime Minister Yves Leterme to make the head spin unsuspecting women on Facebook and turn on to transfer large amounts. But also men are victims of dating fraud. As Jurgen Luff, a 43-year maintenance technician from Wetteren. He sold his house and collapsed 120 000 euro to a woman he had fallen in love head over heels. Without knowing how she looks real. "I can not believe myself that I'm so carried away."
"It was a British businesswoman who I fell in love," sighs Jurgen Luff. "They called Gerardina Hewitt Welsh. Though I realize now that she has a different name and is not a business woman but an unscrupulous con artist. And that the picture on her Facebook profile might be another woman. "
When I ask him how much money he has lost his love, he sighs deeply. "All together 120,000 euros. Paid in 23 payments over a period of nearly two years. Always promised again 'my internet friend' that this time would be solved all its problems and that she would come to me so that we could live together and be happy forever. And I believed her, the loving fool I was! Until they reached the 24th time money early. Then it finally penetrated my friends who had advised me to deposit any money it might sometimes might have got it right. "
"I lost 120 000 euro to a woman I've never seen"
Jayne, who has two children aged 10 and 18 years from his previous marriage, it is now difficult to make ends meet. He has two months lost contact with Gerardina Hewitt Welsh. "But I dare not say that if they contact me again, I'm immune to it," he confesses honestly. "I want someone pays for the fraud and losses played fortune but I'm not sure I can give her the boss. she is so incredibly cunning ... "
Pay 23 times
It started two years ago, however, all so promising for Jurgen. "I was divorced a year and registered on dating Rendez-Vous," he says.
"Typical," said Tim Cools, Deputy Head of Internet investigation by the federal police who know the phenomenon well. "The crooks search the Internet for vulnerable victims. It could be someone who recently had to handle a divorce or the death of the partner. But still, a woman who has been married for 40 years and for whom the sudden attention of a sweet, handsome-looking foreigner breaks the routine and let budding romantic feelings. "
Jurgen Luff was on the dating site itself contacted by "the British businesswoman." "After two or three messages she asked me to come to her Facebook page."
Jurgen gasped and walked the next few weeks with open eyes into a trap that slowly but surely pulled close around him. "First there were the usual conversations. Then Gerardina had occasionally noticed that she liked me and cool. Until she said she'd had met me. The problem was that she was in Malaysia. She was there as a buyer of her company that trades in gold. But was due to a problem with the collection of traveler's checks them equally without cash. She asked if I could deposit 300 euros so they could buy food. I did too much. But it did not stop at. Could I perhaps also stopped her hotel expenses and staff that worked to pay for her until she had money again? Then it was the security people had to be paid to guard the gold they had purchased. There was always something. "
"I lost 120 000 euro to a woman I've never seen"

The deeply in love Jurgen was sloply dragged into a downward spiral that cost him more and more money. "It was all played very convincingly. Everything she could show me documents. She had me also 10 percent shareholder exercised its business. At one point I had to deposit tens of thousands of euros on an English bank to release a large sum attached. I was forwarded a website of the bank, a code to log in and then a summary of my account. Just really, everybody. Until after three attempts did not return the money and the bank suddenly disappeared from the Internet. When she asked me then to a final deposit, I had enough. I replied that I would not do it, how they got very angry and even disappeared from the Internet. Since then I have heard nothing more about it. "

"Chances are it's going to scammers from Nigeria or Ghana," said Detective Tim Cools. "They operate in groups from Internet cafes and are almost impossible to find, especially since cooperation with these countries is virtually nil. Too bad, because last year 500 people filed a complaint with the police for dating fraud. On average they lost 25,000. The victims are not all marginal people. On the contrary, the scammers are out to prey who have money. There are doctors to lawyers, a physiotherapist who has lost 300,000 euros. Sometimes it leads to major human tragedies. One person we almost literally under the ready to save hanging rope ".
Nevertheless likes Tim Cools that the police still have too little attention to the phenomenon. "All too often the victim is walking sent back by the police. Eigens debt, thick hump, you know. "
Jurgen had hitherto little help. "The police Wetteren has done a good job. But they told me they needed the prosecutor to find out who was behind the fraud. And showed me the office of Dendermonde know that no action will give my case because "not important enough for follow-up and investigation." I should imagine civil party but I currently do not have any money ... "

There may also change now former Prime Minister Yves Leterme was abused by fraudsters dating. Facebook Leterme has two sections. On both adorns same picture. he only called in one Yves Leterme, and on the other Lorentz Scholvin. Is not he born in Ypres but in Geneva. And he gives himself out as a banker at the Swiss National Bank. A banker with extensive connections in addition, as evidenced by the photo that Scholvin (Leterme so) together with state King Albert.
"Clearly the work of a friendship fraudster" says Tim Cools.
"I lost 120 000 euro to a woman I've never seen"
The false account of one Lorentz Scholvin, using photographs of Yves Leterme

Contacted by us, Yves Leterme falls from the sky. "Thank you for bringing me know but I knew the phenomenon not even know," he tells us from Stockholm, where its headquarters are located IDEA, the international think tank for which the former prime minister is working. Leterme gave Tuesday instructed to contact Facebook with the demand to remove the fake account. "I will discuss this week with my lawyer to take any further steps against it."
Naturally, every Belgian notes stroke the account of "Lorentz Scholvin" is false. But in foreign countries, where almost nobody recognizes Leterme, the face of the former Prime Minister looks like that of a successful businessman who inspires confidence.
"It's not the first time a Belgian politician is being abused by fraudsters dating to extort money," says Tim Cools. "Even Elio Di Rupo was stolen a photo from the Internet. With that picture crook managed to steal a victim of thousands of euros ".

He send me the contract and it is being stipulated there that the end of contract is on July5th. Now he is asking for assistance because he is out of funds due to land space which he is not aware that the seaport authority of Malaysia will charge him that big amount.According to him the land space is 24,000 MYR which is more or less 300,000 pesos and he has given 1 week to settle the balance.I am from the Philippines I already send money to him with the amount of 243,000 last june 30 and last july 4 but I online the money to Jeremy Go Franco in which according to him he is the Philippine's agent of the seaport of Malaysia. He said the seaport authority charge him again the demmorage with the amount of 3,800 MYR. So now he keep calling me and ask for help for the balance so that the seaport will give him clearance so he can deliver the trucks to Nakano Corporation because according to him the check is already issued and ready as long as the trucks delivered. I would like to ask for your help to verify the seaport Klang in Malaysia if they have shipper name EDWARD RANDALL DARIO from 1 Marylbone High Street, WIU 4LZ London United Kingdom who have contract to Nakano Corporation since he is still in Malaysia right now and keep asking me assistance for the balance of 100,000. I hope you can help me on this if his transaction is legit can i ask assistance from you to help him settle the balance because i don't have resources now the reason i also want to help him is that i borrowed the amount i send to him. According to him once the truck delivered he will pay me back so I am so worried now of the money i borrowed from the people here with 20% interest. Please help me verify now.
