WARNING – INDONESIAN CUPID ONLINE DATING SCAM

An online user corresponded with this scammer on IndonesianCupid.Com, a Indonesian version of OkCupid. He sent photo attachments as well but sadly, I don’t open attachments from unknown users. The email users intent was good. I just don’t open attachments for safety reasons. If anyone has received an email from this email address and has any photos, please send it but copy and paste it, versus sending it in an attachments. Thank you.

Judul: MORE ABOUT ME AND MY PICTURES

Hello dearest,

How are you doing? I hope you’re doing great? It’s a pleasure to hear from you again. To be sincere with you dear, I’m new on this dating stuffs and I have a friend who was blessed with the help of the site and he found a partner whom he recently got married to. He was the one who introduced me here. Hopefully this communication would bear a good fruit?

Well, I never involve myself in all these stuffs before but have heard a lot of testimonies regarding people who have been blessed through online dating sites and they found their soul mates here. It’s amazing dear. You are such a kind person I guess lol hehe, and it going to be nice to get to know each other well. I am glad to meet you here. May God help us as we are going further to know each other better. Meanwhile I want to tell you more about myself for your better understanding of who I am,

My name is Martin Buren. I was born on December 18, 1969.My height is 6ft 1″(187cm) and my weight is 76kg (171ib) i have never married before, i don`t have any kids yet. I am originally from Ireland United Kingdom, but live and work here in Ontario, Canada, I so much love God and put Him first in everything I do. I am an Engineer by profession, working in Belor Construction Ltd Ontario, I have been to Architectural job for past 15years, work as an Architectural Engineer, I design , construct houses, roads , bridges and shopping Malls etc. I do also the sales of building Materials. You can call me a contractor as well.

I Love my job, coz I do travel some parts of the worlds and living a good life with my family. I have always loved to be Independent in life. That’s why I decided to relocate to Ontario, Canada in search of greener pastures. I want you to know l’m not here to have fun or play. Just looking for a true love. Are you still interested? Life is good here but as you know, because of the global economic crisis, things have turned apart. But in all things, we are still enjoying life to the fullest.

My late father is from Austria but migrated to United Kingdom when I was young, may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. My late father was a honest and kind loving man till death. He was a philanthropist and had worked in various organizations in the past and assisted many groups both less privileged people morally and financially. My intention is to carry on with what my late father had left behind and I love charity work too. It is great to be involved in helping people, especially the unfortunate among us. As a matter of fact, he was the one that introduced me to the business of contracting and Architecture before I went to the University to study more about it, and I hope to use my office to get what rightfully belongs to me.

We are 3 in our family, 2 boys and 1 girl. But now I am the only surviving son of my family, because i lost my brother and sister in a car accident in 22nd of November 1994, I hate to remember this because whenever I remembered it my eyes will be full of tears, the only person I have now is my mother she is very old now 76 years, I pay a private nurse every month for taking care of her.

I don`t drink alcohol; I don’t smoke or do any drugs. I take care of my body both mentally and physically. I go the gym always to lift weights, run and do other forms of physical fitness. I don’t look for sexy or beauty, I believe a true beauty of a woman can be seen inside of her and not only the physical appearance. I don’t care about the race, culture or religion. I just need a simple woman who is ready to spend the rest of her life with me.

Furthermore, I am a fun loving guy who cares for the need of others. I am romantic, energetic, friendly and easy going guy, I love traveling and shopping. I like listening to music. On weekends, I normally go out with my friend to play football and golf. I sometimes go out to the sea side for refreshment and sightseeing. I do cook sometimes as I like cooking. Being happy always makes me feel young every day. I am so glad for my life today and really thank God for all His blessings upon my family.

Before enclosing this message, I would like to remind you once again that distance or relocation won’t be a barrier. I will love to visit you when the time comes or invite you here in Canada. Waiting to hear from you when time permits you, please I would like to have your own introduction as much as you can share with me.

I am willing to welcome them all .Let’s forget the past, believing that God knows us and has a great things in store for us in the future. I hope you do not get bored reading everything about me in this email, I must tell you all about myself.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards
Martin Buren
From Ontario, Canada

Email: Hello (name of potential victim),

It warms my heart to hear from you, my heart accepts you from the very first time i don’t know what you have done to me to make me feel like this, i am aware of our age difference, i will be 26 years old by next month, to me age is not a problem at all, age are nothing but just numbers, what matters to me most is the heart, love, happiness, maturity, i need a real and sincere friend that i can trust and talk to, i have kept this secrete for too long i need to open up my heart  to you because my heart chooses you as my helper, Sometimes the world seems to be upside down, things seems to be so unusual, sometimes i feel like am living in this world all alone,
My heart has been so lonely  ever since my parents was assassinated and i was left in this world all by myself,i am the only surviving child of chief John Peterson, my late father was the owner of Guarantee project company but his was assassinated by his business partner and i was left alone in this world all by myself, i did,nt have any  friend or family to turn to  and i was so scared that the people that killed my parents will come after my life,  that was why i left my country to this country i am now, I’m presently in Dakar, Senegal.

Getting  here i don’t know anybody or have any where to stay so i was taken to the Church hostel where i live presently, though here in this hostel i don’t have freedom and the living here is very bad but what choice do i have, i have to keep myself alive, when i came to this country the first thing i did was to try and claim my inheritance that my late parents left for me  but i couldn’t because of my status here in this country but i believe with time i will be able to claim my inheritance hopefully when i get somebody to help me claim it, my inheritance is enough for us to invest on any kind of business we choose, i like to sing, cook and walk on the beach, please tell me more about yourself and your country,
I would really love to hear your voice sweetie  but is so unfortunate that i don’t have a phone of my own, but you can call me  with the Rev father’ s phone here in the camp,
the number is ( +221 772 093 435 )  when you call just tell the Rev  Father that you want to talk to Judy he will send for me, i really cant wait to hear from you again  my heart really looks up to you, i hope my present situation will not scare you away or make you abandon me here, because hard times don’t last long,  please don’t let my color, distance or our age difference stop you from helping me, this is the truth of my heart and my real feelings to you, i don’t care about wealth, i just want to live free and happy again, i hope you understand me, everything will be alright soon, hope you like my pics,
until i hear from you again,

Take care,

Judy.

Man Commits Suicide After Falling For An Online Romance Scam (2009 Article)

Hessle

Pictured; Hessle station in East Yorkshire near where Philip Hunt took his own life on August 13, 2009..

GRIMSBY, UK — A Grimsby man took his own life after he fell victim to an online dating scam that promised him the love of a “beautiful woman” – but instead left him with debts of over £80,000.

An inquest in Hull heard that at around 9.30pm on Thursday, August 13, 2009, 58-year-old Philip Hunt, of St Catherine’s Court, was struck by a train in Hessle. A post mortem examination revealed he had suffered multiple injuries and that his death was “instantaneous”.

The jury took just 15 minutes to return a unanimous verdict of suicide to the coroner Geoffrey Saul.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said Mr Hunt had “insurmountable debts” and was the victim of a common scam known as the Nigeria Letter or 419 Fraud.

The inquest heard he had been targeted by someone posing on an online dating agency as a Nigerian woman called Rose, in December 2008. She convinced him she was young, fabulously rich and if he could help transfer $2.9million from Nigeria to the UK then they could start a new life together, an inquest heard today.

Mr Hunt told his ex-girlfriend Lesley Smith – who gave evidence at the inquest – that “Rose” had promised him a share of her father’s estate if he could help her get 2.9-million US dollars into the country.

Ms Smith tried to warn Mr Hunt against it, telling him it was a ‘scam,’ but he was head over heels and blinded by the love of this impostor and believed the scammer over his former girl-friend of three years. 

The 58-year-old was so hooked on the fantasy of a future with the stunning ‘Rose’ and he willingly paid out tens of thousands of pounds to help her beat malaria and get her funds through customs and into the UK.

The cargo officer remortgaged his house, took out loans, ran up overdrafts and begged for cash from his employers after repeatedly transferring money across to the fraudsters’ account.

Ms Smith said Mr Hunt – who had worked as a cargo officer for DFDS Tor Line, Immingham, for the last 14 years – had sent her a text in January last year, saying: “There are amazing things happening in my life”.

She told the inquest: “He told me that this lady needed to come to England with this case of money to be able to convert it into usable money. “He retrieved a suitcase from City Airport in London and under instruction went to a hotel room and waited there.”

The inquest was told by British Transport Police that he was met by two men, who revealed the case was full of blank paper. They showed Mr Hunt how they could “turn one of them into a 100 dollar bill” with the use of a liquid solution.

Eventually he became so hopelessly mired in debt that he committed suicide by lying down in front of a train.

Mr Hunt appeared to believe in Rose until the very end. His mobile phone was found in a rucksack near his body and a text message to Rose – which was never sent – read: ‘I’m cold, lonely and depressed, I’m so lonely without you tonight. Going to meet my maker..’

WARNING: NIGERIAN (419) SCAMMER

This is a ‘ Romance Scam ‘ and I am baiting this Nigerian loser pretending to be some damsel in distress (lol) – This is the 3rd email and she’s already trying to scam me with a fake check. To read email’s one and two, check the comment section.

Name(s): Monica Gazairi <> Monica Zirri <> Moni Ziri <> Monica Ziri <> Monica Gaziri (this scammer has spelt this name multiple ways in both emails and email-addresses. Most likely to throw off search engine results so I posted all of them.)

Email Address(s) – monicazirri@yahoo.com <> moniziri@yahoo.com  <> monicagaziri1@yahoo.com <> Monigaziri@yahoo.com <>

Dearest One

I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.

how is your day over there Mine is a little bit cool over here in United Kingdom UK.

my condition here is terrible Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.

I don’t have any relatives now whom i can go to all our relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev David Thomas who is the pastor of the (ST. PETER CATHOLIC CHURCH) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the women’s hostel because here the have two hostels one for men the other for women.

The Pastors Tel number is (00447010053691) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel.

My condition here i don’t have any right or privileged to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.

I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragedy incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.   Please listen to this,i have my late father’s statement of account and death certificate and deposit certificate of funds here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in which he used my name and future husband as the next of kin,the amount in question is ?5.5M(Five Million five Hundred Thousand Pounds) So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.I kept this secret to people here the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.   So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don’t tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it.

Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and hardworking man. Myfavorite language is English.

Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said i have a lot to tell you Have a nice day and think about me.

Awaiting to hear from you soonest Yours loving, Monica
