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.

Beware - Another Loan Scammer
Mr. Mark Lee Paula(amutaemi) are you serious? You want someone to give you their bank information? You are loaning money from Nigeria to nice folks in Malaysia? I am betting you are a "419 SCAMMER"! This is just not the forum for making loans!

There are enough nice people getting scammed here and needing real help - scamming is wrong! Please folks beware!

I was scammed as well. He posted on Match.com as Michael Barner from Long Island NY but originally from Germany. He said he was going to Mylasia for a job then told me he didn't have enough money to get supplies to finish a job. The name and address he gave me was:
Selvam Sokkaiah
Japan 20 Pearl Ave
Kajang Selengor 43000
Malaysia
Be careful ladies!!!!

BEWARE: James Roman and the Benjamin Dean Group 2015
James Roman is attempting again to scam women. Claimed stuck in Quebec, Canada. Lost his wallet and owed taxes. All Americans should know there is a US-Canada Treaty about working in Canada and they don't hold you at the border, arrest them or hold money. I even went to the US Embassy, The Canadian Revenue Agency and Immigration in Canada and everything was a lie. Really, they think women are stupid. He attempted to make me believe that one of them was the Canadian official, and he didn't even speak French when I asked a question in French. LOSERS!

Scammers are Stealing Billions Worldwide
To all of the nice people all over the world. I was scammed out of a great deal of money in 2014. I thought I had met a wonderful man working in KL, Malaysia, originally from the US and UK. I met him on Match.com and would have thought the dating sites making billions of dollars a year might have been responsible enough to do minimal due diligence in gathering information about the members online. I was wrong!!!!!! I now know that it is difficult to get help from police, banks or any government agencies as the scammers cross country lines and there are few laws to protect us after the crime. As I am noting from this site the "flags" show the problem is worldwide and Malaysia is a hub, as is Nigeria particularly.

We can try to educate each other and warn each other of the dangers online. I am not saying you can't meet someone nice - just be very careful!! I have found a number of websites that are helpful in finding out if your new "love" is a scammer or if you are getting suspicious an want to know more. You may find information that will help you keep your money in your pocket not theirs! These scammers are evil criminals - date carefully!

Post from Tony Welsh -- FAKE Loans
What a bunch of verbiage!!!!!!! You criminals that solicit loans in this manner should be banned from the internet! Please folks re-read the post and you will get a lesson in Nigerian "speak". Notice the names they pick to use in their stories and the sentence structures. Neither American nor Brits construct sentences in that fashion. Be very careful about anyone that offer loans in this fashions. This is just a twist on the "Nigerian 419 Scams"!!!! Google 419 for an education! Please be careful of frauds and scammers! Honest, trusting people get hurt every day - we need to learn that there are evil greedy people preying on us and we need to dry up their source of funds! Trust slowly! Good luck!
