| A man tried to scam money out of me by contacting me through Instagram. He contacted me through DM on Instagram. Said that he saw my profile and couldn’t stop thinking about me. I responded more out of curiosity. He then asked me to meet him the app Hangout. So we were chatting on there. He’s telling me he loves me, he wants to marry me and that he has a son and told him about me. This past Wednesday said he was being sent toSyria for work. He said he was a foot and ankle surgeon for the us government/military. He even sent me a picture of his ID. He then told me he was attacked coming out of the airport and his bag was stolen. He said his employer wouldn’t help him until he finished his contract. Said he was afraid for his life and didn’t want to complete the contract. He needed money to get a new passport and plane ticket home. He said a friend promised him $200 and if I could send him whatever I can. Even wanted me to ask my friends and family for money and he would pay me back once he was back to the states. I told I wouldn’t ask anyone and that I didn’t have any money personally to send him. He finally said if anything happens to him it would be my fault and that I am going to hell. |

Problems with this Report? (Spam/Legal/Abuse etc) ?
Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
