| Romance ScamI met this scammer on datehookup. He is also listed on True Beginnings dating site as Feddy717. We spoke for about 2 months. He started confessing his love for me. He told me he lives in Madrid Spain and gave me his cell phone number which has the country code of Spain. He told me he was retiring from his job at Banco Sabadell and relocating to New York. He was better than the Nigerian scammers. He told me he was never married, but has 2 sons living with their mother in the U.K. He told me he had a brother who is a medical doctor and a sister that was a housewife. Both parents are alive. His mother is 79 and his father is 83. His position at the bank was a International Project Manager. He was able to answer questions about Spain. He also said he has a degree in Economics from the University of Liverpool in the U.K. He speaks good English and writes ok. He speaks Spanish and English. Things were going good until last week. He asked me to let him transfer 2.8 Million dollars into my banking account until he arrives in the U.S. He said it was difficult to move that much money out of Spain and because he is not a U.S. citizen he could not open a bank account in the U.S. He stated that once he arrive in the U.S. he would open a bank account for his money. He said he wanted to start a business in the U.S. and need this fund of money. He went so far as to email a copy of his airline reservation for Tuesday, March 4th. I called the airline and they said a reservation was made but never paid for and cancelled a few day ago. I never told him I checked the airline reservation but refused to let him transfer millions into my acct. Now he has stopped communicating with me. I have had Nigerian scammers contact me and I know they were scammers. I guess this is a new type of scam. So, I wanted to make all aware that there is a new type of scam out there coming from Madrid, Spain. Also I knew he was from Madrid Spain because I also checked the IP address. His email is Feddymich717@yahoo.es. His name is Ferdinando Miguel Gonzalez. His cell phone number is 34603101583. He started a Facebook account but did not finish it. When I asked about him completing his Facebook account he said he forgot his password. When I asked about Skype, he said he had an older computer and it did not have a camera.|
