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.

So i met and knews this person from Indonesiancupid.com.
He so polite and nice like executive and mature. He asked me for no more chatting through other online because he want us concentration with this relationship. And he want me to delete this from dating site.... first, we are relationship going well but after he said that he get oppurtunity for his late father in Sarawak ... and after meeting in there he told me that meeting was going well but he must pay for tax 2 % (his late father) he already take all his money from credit card $16.000 ... and asked his mother maid to send back the money $6000 ... so he asked me to for $2000 for balance amount $24000..and he told me that will paying back soon after he arrive in Indonesian. He wants me to transfer to Ms. Norhema binti Rizal Country – 29/2 Jalan Ipoh USD 2,000 for complete for the tax. He sent me a letter from Petronas, but very stranger in this letter find 2 dated different year, how can in the same letter have 2 date. And than his father name like retype not original, and the undersigned there is no the name of the director, and the letter head like photocopy not original. He very dissapointed with me because i can not give or transfer to her/him. After that he never reply my sms (he use the number +60 16 401 1674) and he use the number from british is (+44 70 3180 2668). After this situation he never call or send message or send message from gmail. He use another name is Richard Carter (but his real name). He use another photos in Indonesiancupid he use Mr. Remigijus simasius (mayor) he stay in Lithuania. When I visit Mr. Remigijus website i get the photos that Richard send to me (he use another photo not his real photos)

He can make me the woman so nice (romance scam).

Be carefull ladies. Dont ever believe with the foreigner with use sweet word and want us to give the money even we never seen before. Until now he gone with the wind.

Thanks God to protect me.

Geradina Wils (Gerardina hewitt wels)
This woman called Gerardina Wils (facebook:id=100009716020329&sk=about#)from the UK,State:Lincolnshire,born 15 november 1983, is using pictures "stolen" from a woman called Maria Zampara (greece). Receptionist at the ATHENA LUXURY SUITE'S in greece (santorini). Or its the same person playing a wicked game. (see linkedln..both names)..SCAMMING PEOPLE for money...The picture of Maria Zampara is removed from linkeldln. Not to let you see the same faces of the woman!...So we think its the same woman playing a game! Also Maria Zampara changed her name on facebook to greece one. The question is Why?

You can see at GHANA ROMANCE SCAM or Reporting romance scam site about this scammer after that we collected all evidence...SOON! (Details,fake documents,pictures of both woman with different names,etc). She ask MEN to send money with WU and Moneygram...with fake promises and details (Passport and other fake papers). She's using a lot of datingsite's with different names to look for men "VICTIMS" to pay....She wants to marry you,love you,.....and try to convince you about her story that she's in a certain way in trouble at the country:MALAYSIA.( GOLD BUSINESS). This "woman" is a SCAMMER trying to steal your money.

Dear all,

I have only one sincere advice, do not believe in someone who you haven't met before that claim how much he/she loves you, that's not real. Further, if they start asking for money, ignore & leave it. Trust me, they will never show their faces, the moment you tell them to use video call, Skype, etc, they will give excuses.

We have enough victims who fall prey these scammers, it has to be stopped.

I feel so lost!
Btw, I'm from Malaysia...and i feel I have been scammed...I have been paid alot of money...but Until today (about 3.5 years), I have not received my money back. I even was told that I may lose my funds....Can someone relate to a similar case like this? Funds being held in a "lab" under International Monetary Funds?? I stopped sending money when I have come to my senses that this is not right!
How to report this to the right authority? I think if I go to police, nothing can be done.
Need advice. Thanks.

I am a victim
I met a guy who claimed he is from Holland but live in Scotland to manage his late father's company thru fb few months ago. I decided to add him since we have 2 mutual friends. Then he gave me his phone no. and asked me to add him on whatsapp. I insisted at first and tell him that I don't believe in stranger. Then, he say it's okay and he will wait until I believe in him. Few days later I decided to add his no. and we start to converse using the app. 2 weeks later he said he had fall in love with me and want to move on with our relationship. I sensed something wrong because it was too fast for him to confess and I keep asking is he serious about this and he got angry with me for keep asking him the question. But due to my soft heart, I fall for his words. He asked me to transfer money for visa application and also for him to transfer money from his company account to me. Before he can transfer his company money, he need to declare with my countrt central bank and asked money to pay for the form and also the taxes. I didn't agree to transfer money to him at first but I don't know why I keep falling for his sweet words and promises. Foolishly, I transfer the required amount of money to few local bank accounts belong to local person here maybe to make me believe on what he said are true. It is all come to my sense when a diplomat called me telling me that I need to pay for clearance and insurance fee of a consignment sent by that guy. I know it is too late for me to realise and I feel very stupid now to believe in that man. I decided not to make any more payment and until now they are still waiting for me for the payment but I keep telling them I don't have the money yet. I did asked him since he own a company why don't he use his own money and he told me that all the processes is done in Asia and he is not in Asia. I foolishly believed that.
