How would you know if your boyfriend you've met thru internet is for real and not a scammer?
I've met this guy from a certain dating site. He said he's from England and an engineer, never been married and is looking for a lifetime relationship. We've chatted for almost 2 weeks straight, sometimes with webcam and sometimes no webcam. After two weeks of talking everyday, he told me he loves me and want me to be his wife. And since Im already been in love with him, i told him yes. Then he asked for my full address and contact number cause he said he liked to give me our engagement ring, and other material things. So i gave him my full address... The following day, he sent me the receipt of the package from the courier in London, and told me that he already sent me the ring together with a few thousand pounds of money... The next day, somebody called me up and told me he's from customs of malaysia and they had scanned that package and found that there's money in it and according to that guy is a violation to sent money with that package, so they confiscated it. That guy who called me is asking me to pay 500$ thru Western union for the release of that package. If I didn't pay, the package will be in their custody and cannot be delivered to me here in Thailand.... So I asked my boyfriend who sent that package about it, I even gave him the number that guy used to call me, and he said he called the guy and he really believes in that guy's explanation. And my boyfriend is insisting me to pay for that package so it will not be lost and it will be delivered to me and i can use the money that he sent and our engagement ring.
I don't know if this is a scam or he's really innocent about it... Please someone advice me cause I really love him very much but I know I'm a fool if i pay for that package thru western union..
