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.

All SCAMMERS
To NINA, NATHAN and oldleapard
They are all scammers and they are operating from Malaysia. I don't have solid evidence but from the readings on the internet, most times the monies are wired to Malaysia which leads me to believe they are operating from Malaysia. Overseas mobile sim cards from the UK can be gotten easily and top ups are also easy. So don't believe any of them. Once they start asking for money, whether it's a doctor or a customs official or other government officer, that's a red flag. FYI govt officer will NEVER call you personally unless the person is dead and you are a family member.

? romance scam
Met this man on a dating site around September 2014, Chatted a while then texted and emailed. Feelings about each other developed. Told me him and his son lived in London. He said he is a project mgr. Worked in San Antonio. Job fell through. Lost touch until he notified me in February 2015. Now in Sweden.
kept in touch. On April 11th A Dr. in Malaysia told me he was shot in abdomen. He needed $3000.00. I didn't send any money.
The Dr. kept calling. Then the man asked because he didn't have access to his account in London. There are more details in between all that I have written. I just want to know if this is true so I can move on. I'm a nice person. I don't want to see anyone hurt plus myself included. The hospital where he is happens to be in the same city as the British Embassy. Kulim Hospital in Kuala Lumpur. I need closure.
