|+1 Romance scamMessaged me at Facebook, claimed to be a marine engineer with Evergreen Shipping UK sailing to Australia, widowed with an 11 years old kid at home at Bristol taken care of by an old maid. Quite persistent to be friend even though he was told that a relationship was not my cup of tea. Not much love words but just chatted as friends but sometimes made attempts subtly to tickle my fantasies. Later chatted over phone and emails daily. Suddenly called one day that his boy was dashed to the hospital for broken bones and needed 1300 GBP to be sent by western union or moneygram for down payment before dr carried out surgery. I insisted to pay hospital direct and wanted to have details of hospital so that I could arrange a dr friend in UK to check the situation. He suddenly remembered he got extra cash at home for the purpose. Two days later came the mail about pirates blocking his ship somewhere in Malaysia. Wanted to send over to me about 300 thousand plus GBP kept in the vault of the ship. I checked the IP of his emails after talking to a police inspector and traced the source to be from Ireland and Russia. I replied that he was not honest and I won\'t carry on with the conversation. He disappeared. These two days I received weird calls supposed to be originated from Russia but with untraceable area code 553. Don\'t know if they were from his gang but I didn\'t puck up the calls. Can\'t paste the emails here because I deleted everything right away.|
