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.

I know who is the real person on the picture, but I can't tell you. Many victims are still in love with photos and they become stalkers. At first they inform the person ,later they keep calling them and bother. We do not say identity except to the police.

I am so sorry but you are used as a MULE and terrorists using your name and bank account for money laundering before it will get to them clean and they will cash it. You need to go to the website : FRAUDAID.COM for help immediately. There is no mercy for MULES, mules they the only in scams who have real names and info.I am so sorry but if you do not report to the police you will end up in federal prison, as of money of other victim go through account signed up to you.

Read this info:

Online criminal groups have gone to great lengths to recruit mules in recent years. Social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter have all been used to recruit individuals willing to let their bank account be used to receive a transfer from an illegal account, then forward it along. In turn, the FBI has said that it was going to be stepping up efforts to crack down on money mules.
Alternatively the ‘mule’ may be asked to receive goods, purchased online through fraudulently obtained funds, and requested to forward these on to an overseas address. A promised payment may sometimes be arranged, however in most romance scam related cases, promises of a new life together often substitute any monetary gain for the victim.
Have you met someone online that has asked you to receive funds or goods on their behalf? Quite simply, this is money laundering and any individual assisting these criminals can be prosecuted and have their whole bank account frozen. A conviction for an offence of money laundering may carry a penalty of up to 20 years imprisonment.
If you have received money in your bank account, or have received and/or forwarded goods under these circumstances, please immediately report the incident to your bank and your local police station.

Online Romance Scam
I was be a friend with this guy through online. He want to be me as a friend,we start be friends online since June,2013. He is a divorce man. I start interest to him when he gave me the picture with his son. His son so cute, then I am very close with him even though never meet each other.He is from UK, his mother staying in Scotland. I ever talk to his mother also. His mother so friendly when talk to me like I ever meet her before and very friendly even talking on the phone only.
After a months I friend and chat with him, He told me, he will come to Malaysia to claim Money from the company where is his father working before under Oil and Gas Company. His father was worked with this company and pass away within work in Malaysia. He told me the company call him to get his father money, long time he fight to get that money with his lawyer. He is Engineer. He told me in the meeting, he was get 3.5 million pound sterling. But he need 2000pound buy insurance to change his cheque, after I help him because I think he is honest with me, then a few weeks he ask me to give a sum of money for him to change the cheque, Now it is 35,000pound sterling. He has taught me how to get the money.He asked me to borrow from my siblings and from any money lander. after I get that money, He told me he will open for me an account in London because he think better he put that money under my name. He sent me an email, he gave me his Accountant Email address and, after a few days that man sent me the Santaderinti Bank and open my account through on line after fill up everything need.Then when I open the website of the account the money is appear on line, He ask me to ask bank transfer the Money to My Account in Malaysia, but the Accountant said I have to pay 78,000 pound first to get the pin number. He always ask me to help him, for paying the amount to get the pin no. I've no money any more then he ask me to get money from money lander or make a loan from bank.Actually very difficult to get the loan, to many times I was tried, at least I was get it but not full amount as he want, he said " it's okey, he will try to get from his friend". I only get 59K Saudi Riyals, He ask me to sent via his friend account but the account is not active anymore, then he ask me to sent via Western Union with a few difference name on the same day.I told him I will bring that money and I will meet you personally but he look angry to me, because I can felt he try to lie me. I don't know he force me to send, look like he want to use that money in urgent. After a few days I went back to Malaysia he promised me will meet me after next week because that money transfer still in process. After that only 2 times I can talk to him. The next week on friday 20.12.13 he sent me message. He told me his mother admitted in ICU in UK and he need to go back to London in urgent and he also assurance me will come back by next week and will meet me. Until know I am waiting for him to come but it was not. When I open this website I saw the picture is exactly same as him. Now I felt very sad and broken heart, because now I know I was lie by a big liar. My family was told me to be care full with this scam, but I make it don't know. I thought He is very nice man and sincere and honest with me, from his face he wasn't look like a liar. I am so sad now!I hope British High Commission can take action with this guy who is claim, he is working in Apex global Contractors. He claims his name is Henry Owen Clerk. I don't think if Henry Owen Clerk don't have money to claim all his money. I was suspicious before, but my felling tell me he can not be liar to me.This is my bad experience on this scam. I felt so sad and now I hate with English man, before I thought English man very good and very high prestige to me.I hope British Commission can take an action for this guy and a gang. I have a proof to catch him, I will make a police report, about this. What I need if he will be catch by police interpool, I only need he pay me back the amount of money that he was took from me. I don't want3.5 million as him put in that account. It is not meaning full for me. I want my life back, I want to be happy before with my little amount money. ...Huhuhu! I was be a victim with him!..Please help me. It was new happened to me. I hope every one please be care full with them from On line.

The Nigerian Scam
This is effectively a variant of the Dating Site Romance Scam where the fraudsters have large teams of people who are actively trawling chat and matchmaking sites to generally recruit single western women. The grooming process can take a long time as the mark's confidence is gained. Then, when a trusting relationship has been gained the criminal proposes to the woman and promises to marry her when he comes to her home country in the very near future. Arrangements are made, but the fraudster then makes some pretense and asks the permission of his 'future bride' to ship some goods he is going to buy before he comes. As soon as the woman accepts the fraudster uses several fraudulent or stolen credit cards to buy goods at several internet sites simultaneously. Often the correct billing address of the cardholder is used, but the shipping address is the home of the unsuspecting 'future bride'. Just before the packages are due to arrive the fraudster invents some excuse (sick family member, accident etc) to explain why he cannot come and he tells his 'wife' that he urgently needs to pick-up all the packages. Since the mark has not spent any money and she is in possession of the goods she sees nothing wrong in this and as she loves the man she readily agrees. Soon after, she receives a package delivery company package with pre-printed labels that she has agreed to apply to the boxes that she already has at home. The next day, all boxes are picked up by the package delivery company and shipped to the criminal's real address (in Nigeria or elsewhere). At this point all communication between the woman and the fraudster ceases after all her usefulness to her 'prospective husband' is now entirely over.
In many instances of this scam the fraudsters were even able to use the mark's own address to create accounts with the package deliverer, based on the woman's name and address. A week or two after the packages are delivered it is not uncommon for the woman to receive a huge freight bill from the shipping company. Unwittingly therefore the woman has been conned into becoming a criminal re-shipper and to help the fraudster with his criminal activities
