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.

Tom Hanson and more scammers
Just realize that Tom Hanson's friends (still on Facebook) David Walker Belfast and James Sinclair (maybe the same Person) are scammers too. Must be a Connection with false identities. Be careful. They all use what I call the "Scammers Manual"

I've been contacted about a year ago on a private facebook message by a man saying he is engineer on oil rig and from Manchester UK, had a son at university and all at once said he had to travel to Kuala Lumpur for his own business. While there problems occured and he needed money to get out of it and of course i was the only person that could help him, my future husband. Just a little amount at the beginning that i sent him, and he needed more and more. This went on for many months. Of course i did not have that money to give him. He kept trying. A nightmare, as he was promising to come and see me in my country. Ask me to look for house where i live and so on, mariage and all. I hope no one will get on his trap, he is still on Badoo and Dateyou.me as he goes on the name of edmondgil@yahoo.com, he used to show as brittjohn85...I have since recovered from this, because i had the chance to read information here and on other sites. I'm glad you all exist.Please don't give any credibility to this man, he is Nigerian, his voice on the phone was strange and a little creepy. Thanks to all of you and be blessed.

Naughty Mrs. Benita
Mrs. Benita - - - - - If you are really in New Jersey then why does the "flag" in your post link you to Ghana? I hope you are not trying to trick innocent people into thinking your testimonial is "real"? I also hope you understand how "God" would judge your leading his children into the wolve's din.

Loretta,

Exactly, that's what he used to described himself, white, widowed with one daughter, who lives alone because his daughter was living in canada, only son and his parents already deceased. he's a doctor.
He's still communicating me now using phone number in malaysia because he said his roaming number from uk was already unsubscribed, but not as often as the one we used to before accident happen to him as reported.
After knowing everything about what has been reported in this site, it's so obvious that what had happened to me is same as the case with other victim reported in here.
I'll support and help before they can find again for their next victim.
