I was approached via Facebook by Philip Chon who insisted I go on to yahoo messenger . After several months of romantic chats ,I was asked to send money via Western Union or Moneygram. He claims to be a petroleum engineer who suddenly had to go to Nigeria ( having been in London ) and whilst in Nigeria his passport was held by his hotel because he could not access his bank account. He asked for £850 so that he could pay the buyers and sign the contract. He came across as very caring, romantic and sincere. He asked for the money to go under his supposed middle name of Philip Denis . I found a photograph of Philip Chon on pig busters and his photo is the same as a Mark Fisher a well known scammer. This person can be very persuavise . He is very goodlooking and can easily capture ones heart. Please beware .

This man approached me on facebook and quickly suggested going on yahoo , which I did. He was in contact with me every day over six months and asked for money on several occasions as he needed to pay £850 pounds to complete a contract. He said he was a petroleum engineer from America and could not access his bank account because of restrictions. I fell for his charms hook,line and sinker. He was always very pleasant and charming and I really thought I had found the man of my dreams. He has several names that he uses Philip Chon aka : Mark Fisher, Philip Denis, George Darko Asiedu. Please make other women aware of this dangerous individual . I give him £800 then £200 and lastly £100. Regretfully.
