Complaint: Met him online last October and within 48 hours he claimed his account was hacked and taken down. We continued to communicate through email and texts. He claimed he had to go to Malaysia to work on a rig and that he was a environmental engineer. Communications continued for about 3 weeks when he was to return. He sent me his itinerary and a reservation for a hotel. When I checked the hotel using the reservation number it showed a credit card decline and a cancelation of the reservation. He texted a few hours before his flight was to land saying that he had been detained at the airport when they found the bank draft for the work he had done, and he was required to pay taxes. Over the next few weeks he said he had gotten help from friends and he also emptied his accounts but they wouldn’t let him go. By now, I was sucked in and sent him what I could and even took out a personal loan. He told me he wasn’t eating since he had no money. He told me he deposited his bank draft in a new Cyprus account and sent me a contact so I could have access to the funds to pay the tax in Malaysia. I can log into the account to see the funds so not sure if this is fake or if the bank is another victim. I had to pay a tax for the Cyprus account and was told that the banker aslo helped pay for that amount (fake?, not sure anymore). Most recently I was told that the Banks Governing body would not release the funds until both Steve and I completed documents attesting to this, since we don’t have the same last names and I would need a Cyprus attorney, which would be another $8000. This has not been paid and as far as I know, the money is still in that account. He sent me a picture of himself apparently in a hospital where he was to have surgery due to an injury while he was on the rig, and the doctor would not operate until he had a cash payment, which I sent. He is now released but needing medication he cannot pay for. I have sent him or a bank escrow account more than $25,000. He has not communicated in the past 48 hours or responded to texts. I had Googled his name a few months ago and did not find any negative information, but when I did another search today, there I see 4 other complaints about him from women with very similar stories. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else! I also could no longer find the website for his ‘company’ today. I’ve had nagging feeelings about this off and on for 4 months and should have paid attention to my intuition. But today, knowing he apprarently scammed me as well as others, makes me feel free. I have much more debt than when I ‘met’ him and I can pay that off over time. I would love to have my money back, but it’s more important to have my self respect back.
