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.

I have talked at length here with a woman on FB who says he is from England but now in maiaysia because of his father's death. Perhaps there is someone here who can testify that she surely is from England, her name is Aabel Johnson, so most recently at Christmas, she would have gone out of Malaysia because I had paid all her expenses there, but then I get a message here a few days later that she has blivigt arrested there in malaysia by the police that it was something wrong with her passport, where she has been unable to leave the country. perhaps embassy there to help me to check if she prtar truth there. then I have urged her to visit the embassy there to help her passport.

JAMES BROWN - Romance Scam
I cannot believe this happened on me, but I would like to share this to alert all people out there. I knew a guy from FB about one month ago. And the story is pretty the same. He is British business man from Manchester who is selling hospital supplies. 3 days ago, he told me he is going to pay me a visit and also contact with a local hospital equipment company before he go to China for his business trip. Now the drama part is I received a call from him that he been detained at airport due to the cash and also the hospital equipment that he brought. Later on, I received another call from the malay lady which the story that she claimed is exactly the same as this post http://lunaticg.blogspot.com/2012/12/malaysia-custom-scam.html . I just told him if you want my help, I will only ask my lawyer go to to airport, I will not involved in the bribery to those scammer who pretend to the custom officer. He keep begging and said I am the only hope and beg me get him out of there. When I talked with him over the phone, I knew everything is a lie. Luckily, I started to doubt this fraudster at the very beginning. Ladies and gentle, for a real person standing in front of you, you still doubt them for thousand of reasons, moreover just a friend that you have never met! Many clues will tell he is a liar: terrible English which consist of a lot spelling mistake, not European accent, terrible resolution picture (even he claim he is using iphone 6),still can on FB after detained at airport. I have reported the account to FB and perhaps this fraudster account can be closed down. Below are the telephone number for your reference: James Brown fraudster: +447708655523, +60163517204. Malay lady scammer:+601126780184. PLEASE BE ALERT!

Fake Ramotar Singh Tyrone from UK
I just wanted to add that you are the only one he got. He can't pay his hotel bill and wants to come to you if you pay for his ticket. If you do he want's more because something happen to the money. He was robbed. He is a real SCAMMER. Please don't believe him.

I have been scammed by this man. He wanted me to pay so he could get his box with money. He worked for London Mediterranean Shipping Company UK as a marine engineer. Director of operation for 13 years. He said he lived in Ireland in Lisburn. Fake all of it. I paid him to get his box. He is in Malaysia and scam other women. He is very convincing,Don't believe him HE IS A SCAMMER.He uses other s accounts to get the money. He writes so wonderful love mails. But it's all fake. RAMOTAR SINGH TYRONE IS A SCAMMER.
