Was scammed for over a year

I have read so many stories and they all sound quite the same. You are their Queen, their world, their wife and I have never met the man.

My story started out when he needed to pay customs for his parts to start a job and when I could only come up with $1000 instead of $5000 he took that money hoping to get his part and was ”arrested" for bribing. Then for 3 months I was paying his attorney to help his release and buy his plane ticket home.

The day he was to leave he was ”arrested” again at the airport for carting a large sum of money on him. They accused him of money laundering and the plane ticket was not real. Then he was put in a detention center for 3 more months until he finally got another attorney to take his case.

The entire time I was sending money to the first attorney for him to arrange ha release. The fine was supposed to be $14,925.00 but it was reduced to $9000 his new attorney posted some type of bail and he was released to the attorney custody until the fine is paid.

So he lives with his attorney??? He was arrested at the end of March, released to the attorney custody in July and is still there now needing a balance of $3000.

He was able to call other friends to help him out but now they are so close to final payment. He will get all the money back that is being held over $250,000 then he will be able to come home pay his attorney back and me back for helping him. When I asked if he was a scammer he denied it. Of course he did!

He called and texts everyday asking me to find a way to come up with the rest of the money. I’m so tired of these scammers even if his story was real how does he expect me to pay with money I don’t have. All the 'my wife' 'my queen' 'my world' is so irritating now. I know I should block him. I’m not sending him money but he still wants to come home and be a family. I’m going to try to post a picture maybe someone has seen the same man.

Scammed for Over a Year

The problem is you really start believing you are dating these creeps. If you are dating them, should you not support them? It is a horrible scam and puts many women and men into a situation where their heart gets broken.

I can understand you are vulnerable, lots of us are, but use common sense too! Don't EVER send money to anyone you have never even met, as I really can't understand why people are so desperate for love that they resort to parting with money to these tricksters.

If they ask for money they are not hopelessly in love with you, they are conning you. Please BLOCK this person then get out into the real world, join clubs, make new friends - real friends not some person on the Internet.

Put this down as a very hard lesson learnt and now move on.
