SCAMMER USED A FAKE PROFILE TO FOOL ME

Internet Love Scam 

I met this guy who calls himself jin on Instagram. He said he is a Singaporean working and living in USA. WithIn 1 week, he professed his love and admiration. We could get along really well and he was very sweet, UNDERSTANDing and encouraging. We exchanged many photos and he knows about my 2 children. He claims to have one child who is 4 years old and is divorced. As I am going through a divorce myself, it was a match. We chatted every day for close to 2 months. He said he is coming back to Singapore to see me and we will plan a life together. He said his boss needs him to go to belgium for work before he can come back to SG.he is suppose to buy some machinery. On the 6th day of being in belgium, he was going to buy the machine but left his company card at home in USA. Then he realised he cannot use his personal card. Neither can he wire money over to the seller via internet banking . He couldn't ask others or his boss because he didnt want to look incompetent. So he asked for my help - by logging in to his account from Sg and transfer the money to my bank account before transferring it to belgium. Somehow the transfer didnt go through to me. All this while my red flags were up. I did a check on his bank and it seems fake. I also did a photo reverse check on him. I found that he has stolen someone Else's profile and pictures. He is not who he said he was. I blocked him on Instagram and deleted our chat on Google hangout after confronting him. He has since shut down his IG account.

Internet Love Scam 
I met this man through a dating app and he was very kind and sweet at first. He said he was based in an offshore island in Malaysia and was relocating to Singapore. After a month of texting and phone conversations (he said he was unable to do video calls because his phone could not support it in the offshore island), he called me one day sounding ANXIOUS- the day that he was supposed to come to Singapore. He said that the officers had increase his income tax and he had to pay 9000 ringgit. He asked me if I could help him to transfer USD$2000. He said once he comes to Singapore, he will return the money. Feeling bad and also, hoping to see him, I foolishly sent SGD$1000 (I could not afford more than that). But he did not come that day as he claimed that the process to clear his taxes took long. He said that he will come to Singapore the next day instead. Again, he called and this time said he needed money to pay for the chopper (mode of transportation from the offshore island to KL) and to transport his machines too. This time, i was a bit more wary and said I could not afford it. We still continued chatting and I started asking him for EVIDENCEs/proof. He became very defensive and angry that I did not trust him. I said if he wanted me to lend him money to provide proof but until the hand, he sounded very defensive and rude. He also sent a fake us passport profile once but I was able to see through the scam now after being so stupid. I blocked him from then. I did ask him to return my money but I have yet to receive. I hope this incident will cause one to be wary- to please not blindly trust those online who are sweet and kind. I found his images on another dating site with another name.

Scammer got a loan using my bank details

Here is a story about scams in Zambia. It happened in September 2018
Scammer claimed to have connections with people who can make my father's pension be paid faster. It was an irritating story how I have been traveling to Lusaka for my father's package after he died. But through Facebook a Scammer inboxed me that he could help me through his uncle who worked from the pensions offices.He calmed to me that i would have the money paid instantly. It all turned to be a loan scam.

After asking for my details including the bank details he managed to get a loan from the worst financial institution called getBuks in Lusaka. The getBuks financial services are the dumbest in everything they do. Not competent and easy to scam. They are agents of Scammers.
He got ZMW15k too bad.
