| Romance Scam This man messaged me to my inbox on FACEBOOK since November of 2012 expressing romantic interest in me. I did not notice. Until July 2013 and replied to it. He then kept on sending send me multiple love letters, photos (reently I found these photos were stolen from the website of other), sent me his above listed phone number and requested mine. After 2 months, he told me that his job needed him to travel to Australia. In late September, he emailed me that his ship was in a big problem and was afraid of pirates since the ship was having major engine trouble near the coast of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He asked me for my address and asked if he can send me his documents and life savings of 2 years in a safe box as a personal parcel sent through a security company with the name Pigeon Post Express Courier Service. After I searched that company and found that there was a courier service company with this name so I helped him to pay $2550USD for the insurance fee for the delivery service. Later a man contacted me and sent me email telling me his staff was interrupted by the Custom officers when leaving Malaysia. The Custom Officer suspected that of money laundry when having x-ray with the safe-box. I was so shocked when receiving the calls and emails. The man told me to pay $16360 USD for getting the Money Transfer Certificate from Malaysia UK Ambassy. I told the scammer if there was not too much inside the box, then just gave up the box. Honestly I didnt ask the scammer how much was inside the box. I helped him only cos of my kind-hearted. He said he did not care the money inside. He only cared the documents which belongs to his late-wife. He said he would pay me back and even told me the password of the box. He kept begging me to help him. Seeing this, I have no choice but helping him again. After that, he scammed me for the other issues again, like tax for the Custom Office, investigating fee for both UK and Malaysia Police, his late-wife\'s tax in UK ... etc. etc. I wanted to stop helping him. But he told me that he would rather die instead of losing all those documents and he wont go to jail when going back to UK for the tax issue. He even asked me to take care his son after his dead. He kept bothering me, cried over the phone, that made me lose my thinking and feel frustrated. I kept on sending money to help him.|
Finally in February 2014, I found that this is a scam. He scammed all my lifesaving and even asked me to borrow from the banks. But everything is too late. I lose all my money. This heartless scammer even messaged me in March 2014 telling me that he would pay me back when getting back to UK, and asked me to send money to his son in UK. A heartless scammer.
