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.

Jovy READ IT CAREFULLY !!!
Below is information regarding re-shipping scams and consequences.

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.

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

The messages come from Caribbean islands and as many times as you pick up you will be charge for connection plus each minute. It is not your scammer, you adrees , phone number and other info is sold out among scam rings.
Please do not pick up any strange phone numbers a block them as well as block the numbers which text you. There is no other way. Do not count that your scammer will contact you and return money, if someone contact you it means they wamt your money. Please block, delete and ignore all strange numbers.
