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.

Another british scammer !
I have read about scammers at your site, I have the same case, the man James Hansvan contacted me 3 weeks ago, widower, poor child without mother,10 year-old girl Jenny , her mother died from a lung cancer. James is a rich businessman living in Chester and having a nice house in Liverpool, he has no family relatives, only a child. Now he is in Kuala Lumpur and he lost his wallet with all credit cards, debit cards and all cash money. He asked me for quick help to send 700 EUR via Western Union immediately. He promised me infinite love, he pretended he´s fallen in love with me so much and he wanted to meet me very soon and marry me. I see the similarity with other cases mentioned here. He is James Hansvan, originally Holland, 51 year old man with 10 year old girl Jenny, very rich, doing business with various goods, now he is going to sign the contract with malaysian seller about delivery of Palm Oil. His Facebook profile is very simple, no friends, no news, no information. His messages and e-mails were very sincere and sweet promising the big love forever. His e-mail is Ladies, be carefull, he is a trick man !!!! His e-mail is : jameshansvan@gmail.com and tel. number +44 759 408 7394. I didn´t believe him from the beginning though his messages were sweet.
I have got his several photos. BE CAREFULL LADIES !!!!!

Scammers in Malaysia
Dear Ilia,
There are many Nigerian came to Malaysia with current open policy for education for foreigners and some of them end up doing criminal. However anybody who had been scammed involving money should make an official report so that file can be open. Its like recent case that have been reported in the news. I felt pity for her for losing about 65kRM.. But I respect her for the effort and drive to make a report. That is really an encouragement to victim to do like her.

Looking for scammers
Here is s site that people report their scammers to - pictures, emails, etc.
Ladies check out this email and link for David Brooke: davidbrk338@yahoo.com
http://www.youreittoday.com/scammer.php?scammerid=590122

I am still looking for the guy that scammed me. His name was either Duane Hodge or Dwayne Hodges - of course aliases. His emails addresses were: duane.hodge@yahoo.com and hodgesd010@gmail.com
Typical story - from Manchester, UK and California, US. Working in Kuala Lumpur as a Computer Analyst. Money crisis and I helped him financially. Only months later figured out he was a scammer and was Catfishing me. I know he has some connections to Nigeria as some of his phone numbers were 234 numbers. He also had a Malaysian and US phone number. Never used a UK number.

Anyone come across a scammer with a similar story?

Please ladies be careful on the dating sites and social media sites. There are lots of scammers that make a very good living at it - check out the "Yahoo Boys" - they seem to be doing very well living the high life on our hard earned money!!!!!
