Beware of Romance Scam On Internet Dating
11 Throgmorton Street,
Today, I wanna share my experience so that girls you will not be the next victim.
It is all started up with online chatting. I met him up at www.wayn.com .
He emailed me that he felt delighted when he view my profile and all he needs in life is love. He gave me his YM ID, here it is email@example.com, and his mobile number is 44 7031839222 (but it always shown private no when I called). Without thinking I added him.
(He has various identity too like; The Don, Herbin J & Mike Brown that could be found in website search engine).
I think here these 2 email address firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are the same guys because they were using the same tactic to fool the women which I was conned by firstname.lastname@example.org.
We started chatting after 2 weeks I have added him. He claimed that he is the manager of vasco company in UK that produce gold silver and limestone. He failed to gave me his company website when I asked him, I tried to browsed through with whatever information that he gave me but I can’t find much information from the website, anyway, I choose to trust him anyway, one of the reason its because I have been lonely for years! (That this made my life miserable now).
He was so caring, lovely and tenderness while we chatted online. He asked about my family, do I owned a house, whom do I live with, do I owned a car of my own and so on, he started offer me to share my life burden that he is going to send me gifts and 20,000 pounds as a token and to show how much he loves me. I was so happy and excited that someone shown his caring to me after I was being lonely for years. And from that moment on I trusted him 100%.
Here’s the email sent by him that he claimed that he will courier the package to me :
“Honey I have sent the Gifts to you. it contains our diamond engagement ring for our marriage and my picture and family pictures, Gold wrist Watch, one Gold necklace for you , and a laptop for u my darling and 1 Sony Ericsson Camera Phone for you and some cloths for you .I bought a rose flower and the sum of 20,000 pounds sealed in the same phone pack to enable you settle some of your daily needs as after our chat, I can imagine how hard you could be working just alone to make a better life and also take care of yourself for me and your business too. honey please Just accept this token from me.
Since there is no time for bank transfer today I had no option than to sealed the money in the same pack with a rose flower right in the same phone pack.

The 3rd email from them was asking about Money Laundary Certificate and the charges is 5,970 and their UK office will need 5 working days to process it.
The 4th email from them was asking about demurrage charges that to be payable to Custom department and the amount is 5,700.
The last email from them was about taxable amount for the currency found in the package and I will have to pay RM10,200.
You may not believe me that I have paid all the above to the name that they have given me (Kerian Chukwu CIMB 14060549795528, Josephine Reynold Lopez MBB 157063885253) except for RM10,200 that I refused to pay because they really dry my pocket out.
Wait….. there are Part II for this story :
I was online with him one night that he said he is desperately need help from me because he did a business of 2.5m in Mexico and he need another 100k to complete it so that he could get his profit of 300,000 pounds in return. Otherwise there is no refund on payment made. I scolded him why there was no bottom line when doing business but he claimed that he want to get married with me and want to open a company of his own. The reason all he did that is because he loved me and he want me to be happy always! Gosh!
You know what? I have transferred him RM13,000 the first time and another RM25,000 when he asked for second time. He directed me to bank in to his friend account because he said it’s don’t allow money transfer from my country to Mexico (stupid me), so I banked in to (1) Okpara Christian Chimezie SCB 782194983828, (2) Okafor Chidera CIMB 07060003806201.
This modus scammer have scammed me out RM60,000 with his “tremendously” love tactic!
Last but not least, I hope by reference of person’s name, a photo uploaded, fraud shipping website (http://www.skyn3t-cargo.com, and the account number that I have provide above, you all could be more alert and do not be the next victim.
