  Information

I joined LinkedIn in search of a job and I have been an inactive member for two years now. One day some person called pedro sent me a massage to connect with me and I accepted. He wrote to me and asked for my email address which I gave and we started an online dating kind of thing. He sent me photos of his family and I sent him mine. He asked if we could talk on phone which I agree to and then told me that we should meet. That I also agreed and that's when I realized that it was a scam because he was supposed to send me money to arrange for our meeting, what showed me that it was a scam was the fact that he was sending a huge sum of money through the post office, I told him that if there was a problem with that money , he should be blamed because no one sends money in that method. He asked me to check on the parcel status online and it indicated that the parcel was in the fly zone. That same evening I received an email from the parcel company that my parcel has been confiscated because it had money which break the rules and regulations and therefore I should send the 2300 pounds before the parcel could be delivered. I contacted him and he told me that he is far and that I should pay what I can and his aunt will pay the rest. I told him what I thought of him and disconnected from him. However I never reported to the administration of in LinkedIn that they had a scammer among their so many professionals. Hope this helps. I wish to know whose photos he sent me because I am sure he is sending my pictures to other people in the hope of stealing from them
