Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
Dating/online relationship, claimed he was a widow with 5 yr old child then he started a works project in Spain which ran into difficulties as he supposedly had to pay spanish residency taxes amounting to about $35,000 in order to restart the work. I fell hook, line and sinker !!
Asking for money (stupidly I sent Â£300 as I didn't know about scammers at that point).
The photos he sent were all fake (incl home and work project} and I have google imaged his photos and they actually belong to a Pastor Matt Smith in USA. He obviously isn't called Christian Giovanni but have no idea of his real identity
I believe he has also used the email add email@example.com
He first contacted me in February via facebook but his profile is now gone!
Hope this info goes to helping another unsuspecting soul.
