Love Scammed… *tooting* USD Love Scammed

28th October 2017
Hoax? Scam? Out to take advantage?
I dont know, I dont really care anymore. He was verbally abusive. That was all.
Yet another guy that left me with a broken heart. – October Guy

7th September 2017
They dont stop coming do they? Am thankful that this post has been going around and helping people.

This 2nd one I met.
On the site, he indicated UAE. So I asked him what’s he doing there, he said he’s developing a project. I asked him where he’s from, he said woodlands (in SG). Is that true I dont think so.

16 Dec 2016

Got this from the HK police.

Though it’s kinda expected (yar, not surprising abt the fake identity bank account registration), it’s still painful to face it.

Spread the word!!!! Get rid of those irritants!!

Oh, n someone asked abt the LINE Account thing:

Scammer Lippo v1 Scammer Lippo v1b

Scammer Lippo v2a Scammer Lippo v2b
The one in black suit is the current one that he is using. Confirm is targeting those 35 and above.

Thanks for coming by

So, after this post was published, much girls contacted me, Just thought its a good idea to share some of the more active after actions or what I responded to one of the girls.

Thank God you didn’t transfer any funds to him at all. Please do not do that. I believe that he can do nothing about your account number. If I’m not wrong, unless you’ve provided authorization to the bank, the bank is not authorised to release any funds from your account.
1. I suggest you change a bank account number if its within your ability.
2. Inform bank via phone call or a visit to tell them that you did not authorise and should not under any circumstances allow any movement with the next few month (except pre-arranged giro arrangement).

The truth of the matter is, this photo you have, Is definitely not the real guy you are dealing with. They basically screengrab from other guys (even reverse search on google does not show up). One of them even had the opportunity to chat with guys that supposedly worked in the same company, his hoaxed was even able to supply photos of wedding ceremonies that he supposedly attended. They probably went around an collected an archive of life-style photos.
I’ve been in active conversation with plenty of us, being-scammed-ladies to know this. Even the Hong Kong police indicated “Do not send me anymore photos!!” in his email.

(She asked for my hoax’s account number)
They have plenty of account numbers to go around.
I personally transferred to 2 accounts, both were from different HSBC account. Was pending to transfer to the 3rd account when I got my verification from Lippo Securities and decided to called him out bluff. (when I asked him whose account those were, he said its the finance department that arranged it, he isn’t sure).
There was another lady, transferred to 4 different accounts, 3 from HSBC and 1 from another China bank.
There was a single mom (yes, even single mom, they would scam) its another China account too.
So it doesn’t matter the name of account holder or account number.

To help you verify, you may email the company he says he is representing to verify his identity, to find out if he works for that company. That was what I did. (I know it feels as though its distrust, but no. its protecting yourself. You owe it to yourself to figure out)

As you have noticed from my blog, my policy looked really legitimate too. Unfortuantely, it is not. Lippo securities cleanly deny any relationship with my scammer.

I was supposed to fly to Hong Kong to meet him. He managed to postpone and not meet me saying its part of the contract obligation.

The other lady, he was suppose to fly in to SG to meet her, she went to airport to pick him on the actual day, waited for 3 hours, no show. His “colleague” later contacted her to say he was held back by immigration.

The lady with the 4 account numbers, the 4-times transfer were for: 1. Initial investment. 2. Tax payable 3. Stamp and duty fee 4. Overseas outflow fee. – Just sharing how they will cheat you.

So please don’t send him any money. Cease contact is the best option.

I thought I should carry on chatting with him to stall time for the police and get more live information. It took longer than expected time for the police to respond. Its pointless and it is just conditioning our heart to not trust man (worthy man, included).

Again, please don’t send him any money. Cease contact is the best option.

I hope its not too late for you, that you havent already transferred money to the scammer.
There are a few channels for you to report to should you be a victim.
1. Your local (specific to country) police.
2. The country your supposedly scammed policy/investment company is from. – IF its from Hong Kong like in my case, (1) Hong Kong Police and the (2) Securities Future Commission.
3. Your local bank (or the bank you’ve transferred money from)
4. The receiving bank (or the bank you’ve transferred money to)

Do not suffer in silence. Lodge a report. Do something about it. Its important to have paperwork, Leave a trail. In a way, that helps you should there be chances that you could get your money back (although its really low chances since its voluntary transfer). 🙂

 

As I said on a facebook post, “Whats wrong with the world? One human being scamming another human being.”…

We are all born with different deck of cards. Its what we do with it that matters.

 

thanks for coming by,

P/S: Its really disgusting when I see my scammer’s Line account profile photo changing from one to another. Its like using that same number, changing 3 different identities, I wonder scamming how many girls.

PP/S: Its pretty disgusting too, when scammer use a similar userid on 2 separate occasions to message (on the dating site) me. Its either they think I’m really dumb, or they are just out to remind me of how dumb I was.

Peace out.

 

周宇航 周宇航 周宇航 周宇航 周宇航

so handsome right!!
I know, its like perfect match with me isnt it. One handsome, one pretty.

😀

Well, Love is blind they say. and I am so blind too.
So, I met him from an online dating site and exchange LINE contacts. Didnt really spend time chatting with him initially, cos im not a fan of LINE app, felt theres too much spam of advertising and since majority of my contacts are on watsapp, it didnt matter.
intro_asZYH first_exchange

So he introduced himself as 周宇航 (Zhou Yu Hang), from Hong Kong, handles VIP customers, didnt exactly say which company, I thought that was just for his own internet security. DIdnt bother to pursue and ask. He even shared about his annual pay being certain huge amount, drives a BM 6series because its more safe. He said his English wasnt very good. shared that he is from Xiamen
annual_Pay100wan bmx6 diff_get_leave Englishnogood home_in_xiamen job_intro

We chat for extended period over the days.

He expressed his intention of starting a relationship with me.
The whole idea that at our age we cannot afford to fool around “毕竟嘛,我们这个年龄感情我们是玩不来也伤不起。”, that he felt I’m a nice girl (yes I am), who is filial (yes I am) and was really pushing to start a relationship.
cant afford to play HK_Girls marriage_proposal push for relationship love story act_Blur_Scam

I asked why not HK girls, he looks decent, what happened to previous girlfriend? He shared that HK girls were full of themselves and materialistic, I googled and well, results does point towards that side. Shared saying never to spilt that quarrel is a norm between couples (I bet he will use that in all his relationship conversation) “因为一份爱情肯定要经历碰碰的只有互相支持理解信任才可以度过这些没有一份爱情是不会经历这些碰碰吵吵闹闹的。” I said to at least meet, for all I know he could be a scam, he could be yet another imposter. I argued I need to find out more about his values and principles. He said he felt that I am the one, he doesnt want to miss out. Internally, I was telling myself, he seems nice enough, stable, and well, I’m at work, its difficult for him to apply for leave. We are lovers separated by fate. (my foot).

It was weird that he didnt have a phone that has internet access or with camera functions. I felt that perhaps in his line of work, it didnt really matter. My bff calls him “dodgy guy” straight up (yar, she doesnt remembers their name, but usually gives them label. 😀 helps relate better).

Perhaps because I was lonely, perhaps because he is good with words. Perhaps because his timing was consistent – wake up at 8am+, prepare for meeting around 9:30am+, 12pm+ lunch 1pm+ noon nap, 5:30pm+ get ready to go home, 7pm+ reach home from dinner and stroll, chat till 10pm+ or whenever one is tired and wants to sleep. Saturdays he would sleep in and go hangout with friends, Sunday go gym and lunch or dinner with friends. It was stable, routine and typical of a working adult, ready for next phase of life. I bought in. I was engaged emotionally. I was committed.

So then came the night when he said he had something to share.
That it would do our future well and its a good thing for his career in the company. Saying that since it is internal news within the company, I am not to tell anyone else.
Secrecy investment_pitching816 investment_pitching847 investment_pitching841 investment_pitching837 investment_pitching835 investment_pitching830 investment_pitching826 investment_pitching819

and so begins the investment pitching. That some items on the market are showing symptoms, that this form of investment is calculated based on the 33 groups of shares on the market, bet on it dipping or rising. He went on to explain some technical stuff. Adds on that the company he works for received internal news saying that initial report submission indicates certain trends ahead. That this is a golden opportunity to buy in.

It just so happens that there is this VIP customer that he handles had migrated recently and wanted to close his account. He had not closed the account in time. His superior says to look for someone trustworthy to takeover his position and put in money. Since this is an internal arrangement, it cannot be his family members or close friends. and guess whom he proposed to his superior? JAng Jang Jang! His girlfriend in Singapore.

Me being me, asked him, “All you want is for me to sign right? But I dont have a lot.” then he said, “its okay, take a look at the policy. its 40-80 times return. its okay one, no problem, confirm profit. Its for the good of the two of us.” I protested saying “I dont have so much cash. maybe just a few thousand.” I added, “paying a few thousand to see through a person is very cheap.”

policy2 policy3
His policy (representing Hong Kong Lippo Securities) even seemed legitimate. I said I couldnt sign through my phone, how, he say its okay, this is an internal arrangement, he could sign on my behalf. So I proceed. 22nd July, I did the first transfer. He even asked for screen shots of transfer.

asked_for_proof_of_transfer

The next weekend, he was out with his friends. It was Sunday afternoon and he asked, “What do woman like?” He explained that since this investment opportunity was granted by his Superior, he would like to visit him at home to express his gratitude. I felt that was legitimate, courteous of him. He said buying a gift for the superior might be alittle awkward, so buying a gift for the wife would be better. So he concluded to buy Bird’s Nest. Thats a great idea. Its sincere and definitely not cheap. He went ahead.

investment_pitching2ndRd
and he came back that night and said the Superior’s wife is very happy with the gift, the Superior propose to increase investment with no further condition.

I protest and said I have no intention to increase. He pushed, because he felt its difficult, awkward to reject his Superior since the Superior was that kind and takes care of him. Me being committed and all. Succumbed… 1st August, I transferred the 2nd amount of money.

I asked him whos account were those that I transferred to? He said he didnt know, it was instructed by finance department. I thought that was fine, since each department does what they had to and it is an internal arrangement afterall.

whosaccount

Initially wanted to fly over to celebrate his birthday during the 5th Aug weekend, but because of the investment, the contract indicates that I (beneficiary) am not suppose to meet him (gurantor). I was very upset and said if I have known, I would not have invested. He argued saying the investment would end on the 10th, promised to meet me on the weekend of the 12th.

Wednesday_Closing

So came the following week. 10th Aug. We closed the bid and its time to cash out the profit. I was contacted by a Mr Chen from their finance department. He explained that the investment had a 38 times return, that I was required to pay a 6% tax figure before I could cash out the profit. I was half happy and half in doubt. I asked him to tell me my account number since the profit would be credited to my account. He said he wants to verify with me my account number, asking me, instead to tell him my account number, I insisted, I want him to tell me. He said it was procedural for me to tell him my account. So I told the first 9 digit, and I said for him to tell me the last digit. He couldnt, he said he has much paper work, he needs me to call back in 5mins. I did.

actblur_abttax defending_abt_UOB_unabletorespond finance_number

I went to make noise to the “boyfriend” telling him that I dont have that kind of figure to pay the tax. He asked about the phone conversation. Defended the finance guy and act blur saying he didnt realise that its necessary to pay tax. Its usually between the client and finance department.

came the 11th, I reminded him to pick me up the next day. Lo and Behold, he change his story, and even blew up a little and said if I had understood what he was saying about me cashing out the profit and then we could meet properly. Turns out we were not going to meet as promised.

postpone_tickets

I was beyond disappointed. I was heartbroken, I cried. Why is it so difficult to go to be near my loved one?

and you know, girls being girls, I already shared with my colleagues that I’m flying out over the weekend to meet that guy, he looks really cute, lives in Central, Hong Kong, drives a BM6series, blah blah blah.
and when they followed up and asked, are you excited about meeting him finally?
I had to explain that I wasnt going to see him. That I am very confused. I explain the situation and colleague said it is dodgy. that she has a friend in Hong Kong, could help me to call up Lippo Securities to verify if he works there.

She did, she helped me sent an email to Lippo Securities to ask if “Zhou Yu Hang” works there. The email came back saying no. I was thinking, nah, he uses Chinese name, the email asked for English name. I should still proceed to make arrangement for the cash out. I would let my boyfriend down and pull down his career and disappoint his Superior too if I didnt proceed.

The colleague said if she were me, she will so bite back with vengeance. I was in a huge dilemma.

The next day, my colleague asked, “so”, “how was it?”. I said I was still going to proceed. I said its a gamble. and no matter the situation, it is just money.
and just as my bff said, “worst case scenario is I get cheated physically and monetary.” I said, no, the worst case scenario is dying.
The colleague asked again, “why are you punishing yourself.” I burst out tearing “I have no answer for you.”

noprofessional_email verification_chen_phonenum

I sent a message asking him for his professional work email. He answered he dont have one as he handles VIP, high privacy profiles. I was so upset, I argued, “Lippo Securities is so big and you are telling me you dont have a professional work email?” I told him my bank needs information of him in-order to proceed with the transfer. He gave me the official name of Lippo Securities and the phone number of the finance guy. I let it hang there. I couldnt make up my mind of whether thats a valid verification or not. It was not requested on behalf of the bank. The bank had no idea yet.

The next day was a Saturday. I didnt take up the invitation to go for a nice dinner with the colleagues. I was still very stuck, to pay or not to pay. There was no peace in my heart. But as the hours past, I decided that I owe it to myself to figure out does he really work for Lippo Securities?
So I sent an email to Lippo Securities for verification with his name in chinese and the exact info-for-verification-use he gave me. That was Friday evening.

So came Saturday, I was still topsy turvy. The previous times I googled for his name, there was no returns, I googled his name and Lippo Securities, there was no returns, I reverse google his photograph, no returns as well. It kinda make sense, he doesnt have a phone with internet line, he doesnt speak English well, he doesnt have a camera. Pretty much legitimate reasons to not have an online profile. My dodgy guy seems legitimate.

Then I googled more keywords, Hong Kong Scam, Lippo Securities Scam, Securities Scam. Lo and Behold (again) I found the exact same investment pitching on the forum that scam victim contribute to.

Love_Scam

I burst out laughing at the situation. I got scammed. So *tooting* scamed. USD… scammed. *toot*. I lied on my bed and began texting the girls that knew about my possible relationship. I talked it out with my girls.
I was pretty much 70% sold on the idea that I got scammed. But I insisted, I want to hear from Lippo Securities that he and the finance guy do not work for them.

I waited.

Came Monday.

Lippo_Veri

Jang Jang Jang!

So I stayed back after school to put together a proper report and lodged a Singapore Police Report, multiple banks report. Thats it. I hope my form of coming back with vengence would nip them in some parts of their butt.

So, I dont think, the photo is him, the name is his real name. But these I notice.

1. Its definitely organised crime. He could build a daily routine, he has finance department personnel, he has policy documents, he has a fix story that he has used. He knows the words to use.

2. Note to self and to other ladies out there, he uses the same persuasive text saying in all relationships there will be conflicts and hits, not to give up just like that. “毕竟嘛,我们这个年龄感情我们是玩不来也伤不起。” and “因为一份爱情肯定要经历碰碰的只有互相支持理解信任才可以度过这些没有一份爱情是不会经历这些碰碰吵吵闹闹的。”

3. Please note these 2 contact numbers in-case it comes up 0085251364159, 0085260984813

4. English language and data connectivity is almost necessity in order to earn money in Hong Kong.

5. Verification is just an email away. (If only I had done it earlier)

6. Talk to people close to you if its a matter thats keeping you all stuffy in your chest (not talking about boobs), talking about the part that my colleague asked one question and I burst out crying. Its that emotional pressure. Once you feel it, let it out, speak about it. That was my turning point.

7. Yup, crisis is the time where you see friends who trust you (its complicated, not gonna share too much).

So after all was said and done, I confronted him. He flat out deny. Asking why am I so stupid? Why would Lippo Securities reveal their VIP staff to members of public. He asked me where did I get that “similar story” from? Notice that what he is doing is trying to get the sources that root him out? I didnt provide my source of course. I concluded that I wouldnt be paying. He carried on saying why I am I so stupid to believe others and not him, why can I not see from his point of view. Why I gave up that huge some of profit. Nothing about his career being affect. I didnt respond.
and guess what.

He sent an ultimatium. “Remember those photos you sent me?”

WAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL (nope, my face was not in them, nope its content is none of your business)

Well, as sextortion experiences would tell you. Ignore. Absolutely.
I ignore.

and he texted “Are you not going to respond to me?”
😉
indeed USD…. to see through a person is very cheap. More than that, I learnt to be smarter. You learn from my experience. I learnt who trust me. I learnt how to approach banks in situations as such. I learnt that I am… a KEYBOARD WARRIOR.

HAHAHAHA! FYI, I played a pun on keyboard warrior. Its a negative indication. But obviously in this case its a good thing.

Okay, I’ve refunded my airflight ticket to Hong Kong, I’ve reported to the various banks and police, I’ve blogged about this. I think this is closure. 🙂

I can move on happily now. 🙂
thanks for coming by
Be Bless
Love,
Amanda

    Hi 🙂
    It’s voluntary transfer. Chances of getting back is very low. I’m still working with HK police, HK HSBC n SG UOB are in the loop. Hopefully things will work out.

  2. avnjl Post author

    you are not alone. If only we read before we went further. Mind giving me the phone number and account details that you transferred to? Theres so far 3 girls that contacted me. I thought of listing those information on the blog.

Now they still waiting for me to remit the tax to them. This 李嘉贵 told me now he is being investigate by 廉政公署 coz he say he keep transfer $ and give gift to the 银行大堂经理. What should I do now?

  7. Cyndi lee

    He say want to transfer SGD80000 to me to help me in the investment which he claim sure can get money however there are many happening. On 27Mar he ask me to fill up the contract using word app, I told him I can’t download from my Hp so I ask him to fill for me. Then he say he will remit SGD80000 to me as he know I have no $. On 28Mar afternoon he wechat me say have done the transfer then ask me to go bank after work, I told him can do it on 29Mar as is my off day. He say he will ask his 财务. He wechat me on 28Mar say his boss is chasing for the $, I told him he only transfer in the afternoon, don’t think I can get it so fast. He is very worry & panic coz he is my 担保人. Anything happen he say he will have to pay all and have to declare bankrupt and will be jobless too. I feel bad that becoz of me he end up like that. And I am very blur too, next day morning I login to my bank account and thought the $ is in (actually is my own $ as is my first time using Ibanking.) I told him the $ is in and I transfer my $ to the account he gave me. Then he ask me to wait for his $ to be transfer to my account so I can top up the rest. But waited till 30Mar his $ not in yet then he say someone reported to company say the $ I put in not enough end up company 结冻 his $ coz he is my 担保人。I told him I no $ to top up,he ask me to borrow from friend etc. eventually I top up for him. I don’t think I can get back all the $ and now his 财务 is waiting for me to remit the tax to the account he have given to me.

    I’m lost n I hv the same case as u. All words of what he said was the same as from your “boyfriend”. I’m collapsed and lost. I still thought he really love me until I saw your blog. I have remittances USD104,000 to Chen Jin Rong – ICBC bank. The account number I transferred was 712813141200. My “boyfriend” whom I know from Facebook is name 许凯文. He told me he works in Concord Securities Ltd. After knowing him for sometime, he told me there was an investment which internal staff cannot involve and want me to be the representative. I remitted USD10,000 and after a week an accountant whose name is 王建良 called me and said I had made a profit of USD480,000 and he was doing the remit to me. After two hours later he called me again saying he can’t transfer as I needed to pay an import fees of USD24,000. Then on second day said I needed to transfer another USD30,000 and finally another USD24,000. For the last remit, I was totally broke as only could remit $16,000 as 许凯文he understood I’m lost and collapse and he would help me to pay the balance of USD8,000. However, yesterday 许凯文called me said he was gonna penalty for paying the USD8,000 as internal staff is not allow to involve in the investment. He said his company management was doing an investigation on him. He asked me to transmit the balance USD8000 or else he would go to jail for breaking the guarantor contract. He said he not only will go to jail but his guarantor money of USD100,000 will be confiscated. I then told him I’m totally broke. I has no more money and now in deep debt. I owe, bank and friends money. I cried. After 30 minutes 王建良called and said if I don’t remit the USD8,000 , 许凯文will be in deep trouble and whatever money I hv remittances and investment profit will go to charity. I realized the actual company name is Concord Securities Co. Ltd and not Concord Securities Ltd. I have called Concord Securities Co. Ltd but they told me there is no 许凯文 or 王建良.

    都是爱情骗子。

    I hate how he made use of how much he meant to you and kept digging cash from you. Oh my goodness. That is so despicable…
    Do send e-report to the respective country, girl. I think it’s been a lot of cases, the HK police are beginning to do more compared to the initial treatment i got. Do send.

    Amanda

  12. JL

    I hv alrdy file a report to HK police. Am I right to say those photos they put on wechat n fb r fake? I hv also asked him to send me his bedroom n his daily photo. But it seems those photo look so real. However, his namecard look fake. Company name and Address are wrong. The moment when I asked for his namecard, it took him about 30 minutes before he can provide me. Why are all these ppl so cruel to cheat our love n money. I still can’t get over it and feel like dying. I don’t know what to do and only keep on crying.

  13. avnjl Post author

    Yes, it’s all fake. I have other girls sharing abt theirs evening attending friends wedding etc etc.

    It’s okay to cry. It’s our coping mechanism. He is not worth dying for.

    You r not alone in the debts thing. I have other girls who borrowed from siblings n bank loans n had to declare bankrupt.

    No one is worth dying for. Stay strong..

  14. JL

    Thank you. Thanks for hearing my grieving. Think only time can recover my pain. The pain from my feeling is much more hurt than those money that I had lost. Hai….希望他们早点受到惩罚,报应。Wonder how they get all those photos hai….

    Sorry to hear about all these from you ladies. I had almost became a victim 1.5mths ago to a guy named “梁光飛” from King International. N know what, now I am dealing with another scammer “梁嘉超” from King International as well. Both are using the photos of a sales rep from KING.

    Since I’m alrdy well aware that 梁嘉超 is a scammer, I decided to forge an identity to play around with him third time round. Yes, I may gain nothing in the end but I am all prepared to hurl profanities & curse &I swear at him once he make his moves. This is all I can do to comfort myself for all the emotional breakdown that the scammer had done to me.

    Ladies, just remember. It is not love when he talks about money.

  18. CR

    Hi, I’m a recent victim.. similar story with yours. Some sentences are exactly the same. Mine sings for me, shows me videos of his daily life, etc. It felt totally real.. sigh.
    I have filed a police report with his passport details (which I don’t even know if they are real now), I’ll do one with the hongkong police and inform the respective banks. Anything else that would be good for me to do?

    Yeah, mine had a song too.
    The HK police might invite you down to do a statement record, you may want to do that?
    Otherwise, I personally had no further actions. 🙂

    Jia you! Stand strong.

    Hi Amanda,

    I wish i had read your post earlier. I had just found out from your post and this had been continue. I had been scam too. This time round the company is Haitong International Securities Group Limited. This guy is call王意诚. His facebook is https://www.facebook.com/jinying.xia and he had another facebook account https://www.facebook.com/jhd3847 . He used the similar tactic also. i had went to the police station and email the hong Kong side as well. Now i am going to email to the sfc.

    i had also drop you a message on your facebook because i really dont know how and have no one to talk to. I got myself into big trouble this time.

    I have got his photos also. He also share his photo of his good body and gym as well. His line ID is andy_19810728 and the mobile is 852 6857 5787. I hope they get back their karma for cheating our feeling and money.

    I got to know a guy who said his name is Wang Shi Hao from WeChat. His registered phone number is +852 9717 6503. He claimed that he works as 策划总监with Emperor Watch and Jewellery in Hong Kong. The investment department called me a few times with number +852 6355 2071 on 23 August.

    After a month of regular chats, he mentioned that he has problem at work where a very important investment project he is handling needs an immediate oversea investor to take over a VIP client who pulled out last minute. He said this project is bound by confidentiality and no internal employees nor anyone residing in Hong Kong/ Macau can participate.

    Initially I hesitated and declined. But I fell for his tricks at last. I have transferred a total of USD41300 in 7 transactions into 3 separate accounts in Hong Kong in the last 3 weeks.

    [This account is claimed to be from CBRC 银监会]

    I received a call on 2nd September from a guy who claimed to be from China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC). The number is +852 6842 6764.

    Now he stops messaging me and I cannot contact him after all the monies are transferred. I have been trying to call but his phone is off.

    I have made Hong Kong police and SFC report on this case.

    I encountered another one recently too. Switched over to WeChat after that. His facts didnt add up. Text in English. Very dodgy. Gonna come up with a post soon.

  27. WSH

    I met 2 from WeChat. Both are from Hong Kong and claimed they were on business trip in Singapore (early July) when we connected via PeopleNearby in WeChat. I managed to dodge the first one when he asked me to invest in an IPO with so-good-to-be-true picture. I reported him directly to SFC and now it’s under police investigation.

    I thought I wouldn’t be so unlucky to chat with 2 scammers at once so I continued chatting with the second one and soon really fell for his charm. I couldn’t blame anyone else but for my own foolishness when I ignored the so many red flags and signs telling me I should not proceed just because I don’t believe I’m chatting with 2 scammers at the same time. This guy is way too scheming and convincing!

    Anyway, my heart sank when he stopped messaging me and off his phone after all the funds were cleared. I had called up DBS and they are investigating on the matter now.

    This 2nd one I met, on the site, he indicated UAE. So I asked him what’s he doing there, he said hes developing a project. I asked him where he’s from, he said woodlands, said flying back end of the month. I asked for photos of his development he said it’s in his laptop in HK. I didn’t pursue. But that’s dumb. U r at ur site, confirm u wld have taken photos unless it’s a lie. So end of the month, he flew HK. I questioned, he said he told me he’s going back SG bcos he wanted us to meet. So I asked him what was his company’s edge to have won the project. He couldn’t respond well.
    So I asked for his SG number, he couldn’t provide. I ask him to blur out his ic number n send me a photo of his pink ic. Couldn’t provide.
    Ignore him for a while. Then he messaged to say he couldn’t text me for a while bcos his mom died, he was sad and busy.
    I said even mother he also bring in.
    Then after that he responded saying oh thank you for my kind words. Hai… Dunno how many girls he is scamming at the moment. 🙁

    Girls, please be careful of who you met (or haven’t met) out there. They are pretty well trained and know how to make you feel special and wanted. Watch out when they asked you to send them pictures of your work place or anything related to you. To you it may seems they just want to get to know you better, to them, it is to add on to their scam library so next time when another unsuspecting victim asked for pictures of their office, he will source from his ‘library’ and send to the poor girl. same thing with your personal identification number, they will use it to mask their real identity and fool the unsuspecting victim.

    I asked my scammer for his office photos and he sent me quite a few with big office space but just without him in photo. I doubt that the photos are actually his office.

    Also, he bought my trust by telling me he told his mom and colleagues about me and how excited they are when they hear that he is attached. He said his mom wanted to speak to me on the phone but too shy etc. All valid excuses and I was so dead trapped.

    He did sent a photo of him and his mother from his childhood to teenager. He asked for my childhood photos too and now I’m wondering who he is going to scam with my childhood photos. :((

    I am victim too after being scammed in March this year. I have to thanks Amanda for giving me advice etc. Girls, there are too many scammers out there cat fishing especially at dating site. They are actually China citizens who fake themselves as Hongkong or Taiwan citizens. If you feel he is too good to be true and showering too much care and concern and sound desperate wanted to commit himself into relationship immediately then most likely he is a scammer. Girls. we have to stay strong, life still have to go on.

    All these stories sound too familiar. I have recently met a Chinese guy on ChinaLoveCupid. He claimed he is from Xiamen, China but have lived and work in HK for 11 years now. He said he works in HSBC Central, HK as VIP Customers Manager in the Broking Dept.
    My gut feelings tell me he is fake and is a scammer. He is very pushy and desperate to get into a serious relationship with me. He claimed to be a widower and his wife passed away 3 years ago in a car accident. Calling be bao bei, wifey, & etc etc. He even asked me to send him naked or sexy photos of me but I declined everytime he asked for it.
    When I asked him to send me his photo when he is at home, his room, his house or when he is with friends when he is out, he said he doesn’t like taking photos or selfie. Bullshit! On his ChinaLoveCupis profiles, he posted all his selfies there. Oh ya he did sent me a photo of him in his living room apparently but my gut feeling again told me it is fake. (he said his house in HK is 2 rooms but the one in the photo looks like a posh house. When I asked him to video call me to let us see each other, he hesitated for a while but video called me in the end but I couldn’t see a single thing from the screen, the excuse that he gave me was his iPhone fell into the water when he brought it into the bathroom 2 days ago! LOL!!! He really think I am that stupid to believe him.
    I initially told him that I am going to HK soon for holidays and he is excited to meet me. He keeps emphasizing on sex, saying that we should make love when we meet as he misses me sooooo much. LOL! Then I decided to tell him that I couldn’t get my leave approved, plan has to change. He will have to come over to Malaysia to meet me, which he said he will definitely come. Then, immediately today he has turned a quite cold by not texting me in the morning and remained quiet throughout the day. (That’s so obvious coz he knows I may not fall prey to him). I took the initiative and texted him, he did reply but pretend to be busy at work, but I check on his Cupid account and he is online from time to time. Ya, busy hunting for new victims to be.
    I am all out to play along with his tricks as I want to prove that he is a real love scammer. I want to see what will be his step, whether will he continue to prey on me or will he decide to give up soon. Oh ya, today I have called HSBC Broking Services where he claimed he works at but they told me there is no such person when I quoted his name. Scammer!

    He will make you to be drawn into his world/story, I feel myself like being hypnotize by him and eventually have this close connection with him then lead me to believe in whatever he say. Don’t play with fire if you know he is a scammer

    Hi everyone, i encountered the exact situation lately.
    His name: Guo Bin 郭斌
    Company: Luk Fook Financial (fake, already verified)
    Age: 33 (1984)
    Birthday: 15 Aug (i think is fake though)
    Number: 852 6235 3139 (definitely prepaid card)
    Wechat ID: 岁月寄歌

    Please watch out and do not fall for his trick! I am so glad i read Amanda’s post and did not remit any money over, already had my suspicions when he was so eligible but yet so enthusiastically wanna be with someone whom he never met. And of course the hp part, he lied he got drunk one day and hp was smashed with camera/video malfunction. BULLSHIT
