She found me on Facebook talking nice to me then it got a little more serious the i love yous started. Then she was asking where I work how my credit was if I had any credit cards. She then after 1 week started asking me if i can help her out. Then came the dearly departed dad that left her with a couple of houses but she doesn't have the money for the lawyers. After the1st week i ran her name on the internet and it came up she was a scammer. So lucky for me.

I've been scammed by a romance scammer

  • Monetary Loss: $200.00
This man that calls himself Alfallahy is a romance scammer and a Bitcoin scammer. We spoke for about 2 months and he said he loved me and showed me on Whatsapp the screenshots of his sister and mother telling them about me and wanted to marry me. This continued for several weeks he sent me tons of pictures of him but never video chatted but we did talk on the phone. Then supposedly his sister needed help and he asked me for a Amazon gift card for her because she needed supplies for a "camp" she was in. I told him no and he got mad and said I was wicked and had no conscience. He called me repeatedly and made me cry threatening me never to speak to me again among other things. So he broke me down and I bought it. He promised to pay me back but never did. Now he rarely speaks to me and it really hurt. Lesson learned. He will also try to get you involved in Bitcoins..this is a scam.

Andrew Medecki lies for financial gain

I dated Andrew Medecki in 2016, in 2017 we maintained a friendship. We both desired new living arrangements, so I applied in our names for several apartments. After multiple denials, Drew and I entered into the lease we are in now. He bullied me and threatened a restraining order to force me out at one point. In August, Drew, as I know him, and I were notified by the landlord of his intent to sell the property. Drew immediately stated his intention to stop paying the rent and "deal with the consequences later", those consequences being mine.
As I paid for the applications and background checks, I legally obtained Andrew's to decide upon a course of action that was within my rights, and was shocked. He had lied and told me he had no evictions, and he is using several different versions of his name, and several different current mailing addresses. He has judgements and liens I knew nothing about. When I went through our files, I found notices by banks to seize his funds for unpaid child support. Father of the year appears to open new bank accounts when that happens. Thankfully, the child support is now being taken from his check by his employer. But that doesn't help me at all. The bills are in my name because he has been taken to collections by utility companies. And he is about to be taken to collections for unpaid medical bills that are going to his last address. He is still trying to force me out because he and his new girlfriend can't secure anything. I meant his next victim. Ladies, this man is sweet when he needs something, but he hides his past and gives puppy eyes to you for assistance. Meanwhile, he spends 2-300 dollars a week on designer drugs, collects toys and electronics, and believes he is above having to pay his financial responsibilities. If he decides he has a better option, he will have no problem leaving a debt behind with you. I've reported his fraud to the state and in retaliation he has called police to have me falsely hospitalized for suicidal ideation, and vandalized his own things and claimed I committed these crimes. I have contacted government agencies but as he has committed no crimes against me, I have filed no charges. I have evidence to back this up, including multiple simultaneous address and name variation use. I am trying to update his current address so he can be discovered as a fraud more easily. Do not fall for his promises. He does not intend to keep them. They are just to put off paying his way or to get something out of you. And he does this because he has a negative credit and background history. He CANT qualify for that apartment without you. And that's all he wants from you is for you to sign your name. Beware, because he thinks he is doing nothing wrong, that his deceit is being smart and frugal. Your credit and finances will suffer if you enter into any contracts with Andrew E, Drew, AE or Gabe Andrew Medecki.
