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.

Fake loans - Or "419 scam" twists
Folks - hopefully everyone realizes that this is not the forum for borrowing money?????? These "fake" loan companies are a twist on the old "419 scams". "Google" that some time and get a shocking education about how many Nigerian and other West Africans (and others) make a very lucrative living scamming nice, kind folks. Many of these scammers are part of a group known as the "Yahoo Boys" - "Google" that as well to meet some of the very successful thieves. The "Yahoo Boys" do really well in KL, Malaysia - better networks and cyber cafes to work from.

I was scammed via a "Romance Scam" through "Match.com". The guy took a lot of money from me as a loan and I later learned that he was a "catfish" and scammer and my money had actually been deviously stolen. His IP address in the earlier emails he sent pinged outside of Kuala Lumpur and later in the time zone for Nigeria?

Be careful about the people you meet online via social media. It is so easy for them to lie, cheat and steal everything they can. If they won't video chat or FaceTime and show you who THEY ARE then they are likely not who they say they are. I figured that out too late! I was naïve, inexperienced and too trusting and got taken advantage of.

I am a Christian and these people will even pose as people of faith, "God fearing" and at best they may follow God but it has to be a different God. Maybe Allah and maybe they are doing their part to deceive and to steal and live out their personal "jihad" this way? Not all Muslims will promote this behavior so this is directed to the particular group that is radical! Deception and destruction is what they specialize in so be very careful!!!!!! Be Safe!

Donna from Nigeria and Dr Ibore
Folks be very careful!!!!!!!!!

Donna if you are from London why does your flag show you are posting this message from Nigeria?

I sure hope the "good" Dr. Ibore doesn't do juju spells on people to make them part with their hard earned money or maybe charge high fees for his services promising "love".

To all of the good people out there that are wondering whether you are being or have been scammed and can't figure out how it happened - it could be a spell. Interestingly enough there are laws on the books in Nigeria to prosecute witch doctors that do juju and voodoo spells. Sounds unbelievable but it happened to me.

Be careful who you trust and who you send money to. There are a lot of scammers out of Nigeria operating in Malaysia.
