Scammer on Dating site

**********Following is a story of SCAM *******  SCAM  SCAM SCAM

Ok… We met on OK cupid. He said his name is Patrick Johnson, a window, YM patjonsen947@yahoo.com. He said his mom is american and dad was English, both politicians in UK. He is computer engineer. The story was that… We chatted over a week then he think he fell in love with me. One day he said he was about to come HK on the weekend and stay for 2 weeks, ASKED to take care of HIS accommodation. I wondered what TAKE CARE he meant? ” is he asking me to PAY for his 2 weeks hotel?’ Then I told him I couldn’t afford that AND You would get better deal when YOU book with the flight together I BELIEVE’.  That evening, when I was in the school, he called me few times, and left me offline messages saying his mom GOT SHOT and been transferred back to her own town in the states, and he had to fly back to the states from UK to look after her and would come HK after this. I thought oh what was that… his mom got shot? his wife died, his dad died …..what was going on with his family?  Then he explained his mom was politician in UK and GOT A CONTRACT FROM GOVT which worth a BIG money. how old is she? SHE IS 69. HMMMM she must be a very important woman then , aged 69 and GOVT STILL WANTED her to do thingsssssssss for them and pay alot? I thought… who is she?

Patrick called again when I was on my way home after class. He said he was on the way to airport and he sent a parcel with gifts for me? He did mention that he bought me chocolates, clothes, jewelry. He gave me http://royalxpresc.com/index.html with tracking number. He asked me few time to check it out. Then I checked out.. WOW  it said on the site  He sent  a box sized 12 x4, weighted 35kg.  DID he put a stone in such small box?  EVEN it was a huge diamond, It wouldn’t weight that heavy.

The next day, I asked him what actually he put in the box. He said he put 10K pounds cash and 6k traveler checks inside. I must keep them till he comes. I said ok…. WHY did u send lot of cash? He said I wanted to have good time and get me a nicer residential apartment.  HMMM 10K wouldn’t be enough for that , I thought.

Few days after, I got a distance call, number showed from Malaysia. The guy claimed He was the officer of that courier company In Malaysia. He said the parcel is holding by Malaysian custom as they detected CASH inside and asked me  to pay charges which is equal to $500 USD.  Then I said please call the sender then. He said they couldn’t reach him.  ** I just called the sender and his phone was ON. **  then few calls back and forth, that Malay guy and Patrick keep push me to settle it. But I kept asking for official proofs of it. I asked to email me the custom document and payment method. What the Malay guy sent me was a SMS with his name and the country name. Then he called back asked me send money via Western Union. Hence just his name and place is enough. Of course I wouldn’t. Patrick kept pushing. I said I don’t have the money. AND YOU COULD SEND MONEY ONLINE WITH WESTERN UNION ANYWAY. IF YOU REALLY SO CONCERN AND WORRY ABOUT YOUR 10K CASH IN THE BOX.

Anyway, since I have searched that courier company website, on yahoo and google, it has been blacklisted as 419 SCAM.

All I want to say is many dating site are fully of scammers. I really don’t know if I would be lucky enough to get a real person at all .. geeeeeeeeeeee  I did saw Patrick on cam a few SHORT time. Then he said he dropped his cam and broke it. WEll Usually scammers are FULL OF DRAMA.
