It is also a misconception that the victim's bank account is requested so the culprit can plunder it -- this is not the primary reason for the account request -- merely a signal they have hooked another victim.The most prevalent and successful cases of Advance Fee Fraud is the fund transfer scam.These fees may even start out as quite small amounts.If paid, the scammer may make up new fees that require payment before you can receive your reward.Commonly, the guise is an urgent need to "confirm your identity".They will even offer you a story of how your account has been attacked by hackers to lure you into entering your confidential information.
Is there a way for us 'victims' to post pictures of our phony lovers?
That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. The contract - cancelled - came back saying Carlos Smith. 3 The chat videos that they used were from some Italian musician and you can see he never looked right. Whenever I send the one of 'him' to the reverse pic site, it only states, Senior gentleman. Said he worked as an Oil Rig Engineer and would NOT video chat.
I showed him a copy of his ip trace.said I would die - be killed. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him. My scammer used the name Carlos William for the Maresk drilling and thought I was going to pay 1970.00 to have him getting off there and he said he would pay me back - right. The scammer site said the scammers used the video - and the site said if you do come across a video chat have them write out a card or something and hold it up just to know that it's them. I'd like to see the others, and I'd bet your other correspondents would also like to have that at their disposal, to compare, or check out. Literally put his finger over camera saying he could not see me. I googled name and found a Facebook page that only had about 8 friends. I never gave money and didn't trust him from the beginning especially when he told me he loved and missed me lol. He even sent a fake contract showing how he was working on a 1.75 million dollar job in Malaysia.
Many individuals have lost their life savings due to this type of fraud.
We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him. I've already posted one of mine, holding up his prize bass.
