I keep it in the words of the victim
Early of May he contacted me through a language exchange website I registered years ago: https://
Note: Users have to pay to be able to initiate a conversation with other users. So the scammers don’t mind paying a small amount of money to get a bigger fish.
1. After getting my reply, he immediately purposed to move to email communication and deleted his profile there.
His email address: email@example.com
2. He claimed that he is JULIEN DARIO, originally from Basel Switzerland but is now living and working in London. He said he was posted from Switzerland to London to work with the company ACERGY oil and Gas Company in London office under the ( ACERGY GROUP INTERNATIONAL).
Note: The company actually was merged with another company years ago!
3. He admitted that he only wants Asian women as he was hurt by his British ex, and repeatedly gave promises for a soonest visit to my country.
4. Lots of typos in the email. As a person who studied in University of Columbia, Canada, those typos were unforgivable.
5. After getting only a couple of my friendly replies, he started to imply that our relationship would be a romance and he’s found the woman he wants.
6. One of his last emails has a huge amount of similar sentences used by romance scammers, that’s when I started to suspect and asked him why his sentences looked familiar.
Then he replied with all capitalized words expressing that he’s not scammer and he’s sad about being misunderstood. So I didn’t let the conversation go too far, thank God!
