Begging for help. Urgent urgent
My friend went to Kuala Lumpur as a general contractor to build a gas statation. Him and his men started the job and after a weeks work he was told that he would have to give them another $50,000 for taxes . He did not have that kind of money so they stopped the job and put him in jail. They took his clothes expect for his underwars and told him he will not get out alive. He is in Kuala Lumpur. And is getting very sick, he is 69 years old. His name is Bruce Martin or Martin Bruce. They say they will kill him. He just wants to home to the U.S. Where he is a citizen, and has a 25 year old daughter. They will not let him write or USA his cel phone. Please I beg for your help. He will leave his equipment worth $50,000 for them to keep. They give him no food or water. Please help before they kill him.i am begging you to save his life. Or put me in touch with the people that can help. Me help him. There is no reason for them to kill him. This is urgent. I already had to send him $20,000 and have no more. I am begging you to help him. He is not a criminal.

Mark Lawson (60143308518 callers number)
got a call from this guy, saying that my bf had an accident on his way to the airport, since he stayed in the hospital & missed his flight, bf is going to need money for hospital bills & new plane ticket. I ask him to send me the name of the hospital ,phone number, what floor & room number bf was at . I asked him to take a pic of my alleged bf & send it to me. To make sure that we are talking about the same guy. I haven't heard from him since then. Haven't heard from the bf either.

I am in the same situation than Amy Coy, she could not described better , the name of the guy that i met is Mark Lawson email, phone number 315-944 0890,904-351-8803, the last number if you goggle it it will show Kuala Lumpur, the only thing that i can say that the Government of each Country should do something about it, most of the scammers are from Nigeria,Ghana and Malasya,you can't trust anyone anymore.... This guy took all my savings,they made you believe everything they tell you even if you are skeptical about it, they are so good on this.....shame on these people, they play with people feelings and finance.

Australia and others - Beware of scammers
I am so sorry to inform you that this man is likely a scammer. The brief information you shared is classic. I was very seriously scammed out of my life savings. I had never heard of "catfish" or "romance scammers" before 2014. I fell "hook, line and sinker" for this guy I met on Match.con. His MO was similar - he said he was from the US and UK and in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a job. As I now know the man calling himself "Dwayne Hodges" does not exist and I wired money through his contacts (mules).

From my research about these types of scams; whether it be receiving packages or wiring money for a "fake" crisis these men are able to get to us. I felt like I was under a "spell" and did everything he ask of me. As the story went I sent him my savings to help him and enable him to leave KL and come to my home town. He stole my money and broke my heart!!!

As it turns out if you go to YouTube or Google and search words like "romance scammers Malaysia" or "419 scams Malaysia" you will get an ugly introduction to the types of scams taking place. Unfortunately, I was probably courted by 1 man, and a collection of fellow scammers. You may also want to Google "Nigerian romance scams". From my research there appears to be a lot of "fake" students getting visas from Nigeria living in KL, Malaysia. They sit in internet cafes and work full time at scamming people.

The 419 scams have many twists - similar to the scammer you are dealing with. You may want to check into YouTube, Google and Facebook for "Yahoo Boys". A lot of the evil Nigerian thieves are known as Yahoo Boys. On Facebook I have noted the Nigerians in Malaysia are living a much better lifestyle then the boys in Lagos, Nigeria. Visas only last 11 months so unless they marry Malaysian women they come and go. There are hundreds of thousands of scammers now preying on nice, innocent people online.

Please everyone that is questioning whether your new "love" is real or whether to invest in anyway do your homework. If they send you pictures try going to Google and do an "image search", try to find them on social media sites. If they send you IDs like drivers licenses or passports check them out for authenticity. Be smart and trust slowly. Best of luck in 2015. I hope more of us get smarter and realize the scams these evil criminals are committing and we try to STOP this crime!
