He contacted me true Facebook and he started with explaining that he was divorced and that he has a daughter Charlene, 10y old who live with her mum. Afterwards he explained that his mother died on breastcancer and his died just died very early in his life and because of the fact that he was divorcing his wife the bank frozen his account. After some time he told me that his father was an engineer who worked in Malasya and that he had to fly to Malasya to get his inheritance which was pounds.

For getting his inheritance he needed money for paying the tax to the registration office of Malaysia because his father owned them still some money what was about 9700 euro... He also asked me to pay his laywer which he could not pay because of his frozen account.

In his mails he wrote that he was a good man and a christian and all good things about himself. He even gave me the feeling that he was very much in love with me and that he would come to Amsterdam to meet me once he got his money from me for his inheritance. He invited me also to Malasya and to his house in London... He sounded in his mails very convinced. I discovered he was fake and was making romance scam mails from a friend that is a banker and which i told about him for the money. Lucky me my friend told me that people like him are very dangerous and make believe women that he is in love with them for giving his money. My friend bankier sent me all the details about him and indeed i discovered his photo on the internet with the scam mails and he also take pictures from pretty man en women to sent them afterwards to his next victim!!! He sent me even the form of the will of his father and the inheritance document so i could believe him!!!
