| Online Romance Scam |
later it turned out that the uncle was in LA, California & he has a cousin in Canada.
supposedly stays at Drexel Ave & drives two cars.
The scammer used Shakespeare phrases & lines out of a poem to initiate a beautiful message on FB. the day we started communicating, he had just returned from his successful business trip...soon enough the next day I become his lady luck because he got a promotion for the hard work & the successful business trip. Within a week from then he proclaimed love and within a month\'s time discussions were about meeting my parents to ask for my hand in marriage. for this he has to travel since I am not in the states but in the Middle east..So he came up with a story of a trip to UK for an annual training-cum-seminar that he has been chosen to represent on behalf of the company.
3 days before leaving to UK he decides to initiate phone conversation with me...post the phone conversation, he shared his email ID (until this point our only means of communication was FB messages). he reaches \"UK\" & takes 3 days to contact me via emails...now he is stuck since his credit card is not working & he cant get through to his account officer...pleas to report the situation to the Embassy / uncle in LA / lawyer (!!!)/ Bank customer care are all excused out with something or the other. I never offered to help out personally since by now I knew i was dealing with a scammer...Finally he writes to me openly asking for cash to be wired to him via Western Union / Money gram that too 5000 GBP!!!. SSN provided by him thanx to me being persistent was 640-33-5769...the address that i was asked to use for the western union transfer requirement was 1Barnet road, London colney, St albans AL21AB
I gave him a fake MTN ID of Western Union & have blocked him from FB / phone calls & emails too...
