Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
| Dating/romance scam Several months ago, I was contacted on a dating site (Mingle2) by a 'woman' and became friends over a period of time. She allegedly was in the United States and was having some health issues. After a few months, I agreed to help her with an 'emergency appendectomy', then start up a clothing business. Over time, I grew suspicious and through some minor detective work, found other people who were being used by 'her' to forward my money to Nigeria (Lawal Festus Alabi, Plot 86, Oke ata, Housing estate, abk, Nigeria) I always knew 'her' as Rosa Sue Don and she sent me a copy of her birth certificate, but could never provide me with business contact names or permit numbers for my records. Over close to one year, needless to say my 'loans' grew to a significant amount, but 'she' always reassured me I would be paid back in full+ when the 'business' got off the ground. I grew suspicious over time when she got very upset when I attempted to contact her 'business partners' in the U.S. and the lies began to surface. I have kept almost all emails, pictures and money transactions for my records hoping they will be useful as evidence in future. Unfortunately I realize now that the 'loans' will never be repaid, but hopefully this will help prevent someone else from being scammed. These scammers are very good at their craft and are experts at playing on your sympathetic nature and manipulation. Please feel free to contact me. I have contacted authorities, but I am aware now just how difficult it can be to trace these people and put a stop to their illegal and immoral deeds.|
