Jan 16, 2019
Monetary Loss: $5000
i was scammed by mike martin ..he was claimming to be a us army soldier..i sent a money to a guy named Rasaq Ogunsakin..this money was 785.00 to give him a early leave to come home ...also sent amazon cards and goggle cards over 6 months..He told me he was stuck in belgium and needed 820.00 to come home..so i sent that to him..Know he claims he is stuck in mexico and needs 3400 to pay for a lost gun..i have stopped contact and blocked him...
He contacted me asking if it was Mark and then started chatting. Then he asked for money for data for his childrens phone and for his. After sending looked up Thomas and he is a captain of a ship for Maesuk and Vrendo said he is in china. now is wanting me to send money for him to come home. Blocked him.. Captain Thomas Lindegard Madsen is aware of people using his name an d pictures.
She contacted me through a dating website.I signed up for a different site but it appeared that she was contacting me through match.com under user name Shirin,however said her name was Mona.She said she lived fairly close,so we started chatting getting to know each other,after 24 hours she asked if I was going to a store today and if I could get her a steam card.Then when I said no,she got very defensive and claimed it was opening herself up to me.
Meet Dr. Fernando online. We have talked for almost a year. Said he had gone to Nigeria to get his son and now have been $2000 at a time to get him back to Brazil whete he is suppose to be a well known doctor. Now I feel like I've really been scammed. Just want to know if he is a scammer. If do he should go to jail. He should have to give my money back as I live on social security. Have all reports of money sent.
Another online relationship being scammed by Katie Terry
Jan 8, 2019
Monetary Loss: $650.00
Katie contacted me saying we've contacted each other before. So conversations began. Nothing of it. She advised me of her dob of 12/29/1981. Then she advised me she was a widow with a daughter named Jane Lora, with a dob of 12/27/2014. So she asked if i can give them something for their bday, so i sent $50 iTunes card. Then she proceeded to turn around and said am i going to get anything for my birthday so i turned around and gave her another $50 iTunes card. Then i made plans to go and actually meet her. She seemed to be excited about that. But on my way North Carolina i get a texted that her uncle made surprise visit and that she and her grandma went to Grand Rapids, MI. I so was upset at this time. She said her daughter was with her parent. She texted back and said she will make it up by coming back. Then the expenses began, for bus fair, then grandma wanted to come back with her, then i sent money for that, then turned around and she was going to fly back with grandma to get back sooner... Well then she needed more money for that. Then silence for almost 13-14 hours. Texted back bad news, grandma is in the hospital she collapsed on the plane. Then the next day everything was fine, but hospital wouldnt let her leave until the hospital bill got paid. Said whatever at this point. Not sure how she got the bill paid, to leave, but she needed money to re-book her flight.. then because her license was expired, she said that Detroit Metro Airport will renew her licence from there, for another 75. Then repeatedly though was asking for itineraries for the bus trip and both flight trips never got. But finally told me she is finally flying into Charollete Airport. But never gave me itinerary again or even flight information... waited at the airport for half a day and never showed up. upon leaving to go back home she said she was there, but come to find out her flight she says was of Allegiant Airlines, well calling Allegiant airlines they dont service out of Detroit Metro or Charolette Airports. The address of her new renewed drivers license is 433 Hay St., Fayetteville, NC... well upon looking on GPS and confirming by calling that is Fayetteville's City Hall. But she insisting it by a hospital and people are living in city hall. That was her story. But yeah total about $650 taken during a weeks time.
