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.

Ying - Chinese Loan officer from Nigeria on a Malaysian/English Blog - REALLY?
People - be careful when you see these "Fake" loan offers! I am sure that "advanced fees" are required like the 419 Advanced Fee Frauds in Nigeria -

Loans, lotteries, inheritances, corporate windfalls are all FAKE! The Nigerian have made the 419 crime famous - google it!

Be careful!!!!!!!

Scammers in Malaysia - Romance mixed with Nigerian 419 Scams
Yes - many of you are describing classic romance or love scams that take on a twist of the 419 crimes out of Nigeria. Google "419 scams" and you will find many thousands of cases. The main game for all of the scammers in a romance scam is that the victim is brainwashed into believing the con artist loves them and is planning to move to the location of the person that fell in love with them. Unfortunately, they always need money - lots of money - all of the money you can get your hands on! They will steal it ALL then move on to the next victim!

Many of these scams are located in Malaysia and are usually tied to the Nigerians, Chinese and others may become "money mules" there. They are forming large criminal syndicates to move money around internationally to protect the funds from law.

I had my life savings stolen so I know how much it hurts to get robed and get your heart broken. Here is the email address you can file your police report with: Royal Malaysian Police at rmp@rmp.gov.my

If we all report these crime maybe something will get done! TRY to get the word to law enforcement. Eventually enough of us will speak up and the criminals will get caught and the crime will get police and media attention!

If any of you can - let me know where you first got caught in the criminals web - was is Facebook, Match.com, or some other web site????? Thanks for letting other people know what sites to be careful on!

Be careful - Don't send money - it is a scam!!!!!

Betrug in EU
Ich habe auf Facebook einen Mann kennen gelernt der behauptete Englischer Ingenier von Civil Enignering zu sein der in Malaysia einen Auftag vom Malaysischen Ministerim hat .Dieser Mann Asthon Reid oder auch David Anderson schickte mir Bilder von sich bei einigen hochranigen Treffen ,worauf ich reingefallen bin .Er sagte mir das er verliebt in mich ist und wollte mit mir zusammen leben da er seit 5 Jahren verwitwet war .Er hat eine Tochter Namens Ver a,die in einem Internat lebt .Er ist In Malaysia und brauchte Geld da er keine Kreditkarte habe nur bares was ihm ausgegangen ist .Ich war so dumm und habe ihm geglaubt ,Schickte laufend Geld eine sehr hohe Summe ,was mich in den Ruin treibt . Diese Fotos könnten auch aus Familienalben geklaut sein .Diese Masche versuchte auch ein Frank Williams auf Facebook .Das war für mich eine Lehre für das ganze Leben .
