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..

    This sounds like a classic scam. The easiest way to verify this is to phone the Malaysian Customs Authority and tell them your story. Don't use contact numbers given to you by the men asking for money.

    Someone asking for a money order should always be a red flag. It's untraceable and unrefundable, so perfect for scammers.

    You fell in love with a scammer with international scam syndicates. Please, don't be inquisitive to know whether there is a package or not because they are simply after your $500 and more.

    Western union has no trace... thats money gone.

    If you would like to play on their intelligence, since the custom authority scanned the package and there's money in it, tell them to open the package, take out their $500 fee and send the balance and the ring to you. simples!


    tell your scammer boyfriend who was able to send thousands of pounds after 2wks to pay the $500 for you, and you will refund when you receive the package. simples

    need more scambaiting tips, do let me know.

    Thank you guys for your advices and tips. I really appreciate it... But isn't it that scammers hide their faces on webcams while they're baiting their victims? But he does not hide his real face to me... He was actually the one eager to meet me on webcam...

    Think about it logically. They need you to send them money so they can release a package of... money? That doesn't make sense. Tell them to deduct the $500 from the cash in the package!

    Hi Heartbroken
    This story of yours sound very familiar to what im going to face soon. The package is now on the way to my country...with 2 engagement rings, flowers and few thousand pounds! That is so scary and I have nobody to turn to for advice or think of any possible scam or all what we have been through for a mth is FAKE :( I am not sure.
    I knew him online and he sound very nice on phone and occasionally we chat online or via webcam.
    Did he tell you his name? Is there anyway I can contact you via email? Thanks..

    Hi Capricana
    If you're going thru the same situation right now, i suggest you, don't ever believe him and don't ever send money or any payment for that package. I was once victimized by that scam. Yeah during the first month he seems so nice and is chatting with me via webcam too, he even send me his scanned passport copy, but when i had it checked with their embassy, that passport is fake. He will let you believe that you are the only woman for him, that's why you will think that he is really serious with u, But all his stories and chats with you is only a ploy, a strategy to convince you to believe him. He will even blackmail you if you don't do what he tells you. So i suggest to avoid that scammer. I have a feeling that he is working with the underground syndicates. Goodluck ms. Capricana!

    My mom started chatting with a certain Paul Newmann in yahoo chat(namesake of an actor?)he said that he works at Eurochopter the largest military & commercial supplier of helicopter and that he grew up as an orphan, raised by priest. He said that his wife died last year 2011 due to cancer & he will be leaving for 3weeks to Iran for some work and he asks my mom for marriage coz he fell for her good nature & wants a new beginning after loosing his wife. So he said he sent a package to my mom containing wedding ring, a cellphone & 9000 $$! He gave a tracking number etc etc after 3days my mom got a call from a certain Malaysian customs dept telling my mom that they confiscated the package coz it contains undeclared currency. The so called 'custom official said that my mom needs. To pay 1500 ringgit as fine so the package would be delivered. My mom phoned the scammer Paul Newmann & told him about the fined amount he said he won't be able to send the money from Iran because apparently he said Americans are not allowed to transfer money?! What?? Good thing my mom told me her story & cautioned her about all this scammers that are going on by the net. I told her to stop communicating with this guy & don't ever ever give any valuable info or bank account details to anybody she chatted through net.! Just so every1 knows & b cautious here are the phone number he used to call my mother - 0012139355816 and the so called Malaysian custom number # 0060163214529 . Thanks!

    I'm glad I was able to find this forum. I've been dealing with a situation that I suspect is similar to your situations, only it's not me who has an online boyfriend but my mom. She had met this guy, who will remain anonymous for the time being, from Illinois on in August. I am suspicious of the whole thing for several reasons:

    1) She's never actually met him, and he is not willing to come to our city to meet her or even give her a round-trip ticket to go there (He claims that he's too busy working). Instead, he has been talking about packing up all her stuff and moving her there by next year. Not even four months into their relationship, which started almost as soon as they started talking online, and he is already talking about getting married in the coming summer. It seems really rushed to me, especially because he has only talked to her on the phone and online.

    2) Not only does my mom not live in the same state as him, she also is 16 years older than him. The fact that he is choosing to date her, as opposed to someone in his age and area, boggles my mind, especially since she is in her fifties and he in his late thirties. On top of that, she is mentally ill, and I am certain he is aware of this. Not exactly typical behavior.

    3) The information she's told me about him sounds very similar to her three previous online relationships, where they all turned out to be scammers. She says she has talked to his family and that they are completely supportive, yet she had talked to her last e-boyfriend's family. He claims to be a widower with a young child, and so did her last guy. Of course, her last boyfriend had asked her for a $300 money order, and that tipped me off as to his game. She still did not suspect anything until I and my grandfather had convinced her of the truth, granddad having done some investigating into his background.

    4) He apparently has dated other women online, one of which cussed my mother out on Pogo and was trying to cause problems for her.

    I'm really worried. I love my mother, and my gut feeling tells me that something is really off on his end of the situation. I suspect that he will try to take advantage of her, and don't know what I can do to find out the truth about this guy. Does anyone have any ideas? Any information would be appreciated, especially if anyone has heard of e-scammers in Illinois before. My email is [email protected] If you guys need more information, I would be happy to email it to you.

    Hmm, I have a very similar boyfriend as listed in the first e-mail too. Although, I have seen him face to face -- I would appreciate knowing what happend as well as his online name or e-mail so that I don't get scammed :(

    Hey, I have also experienced this kind of scam. The guy whom i met online which says he was form UK said he wants to send me a package. I don't know what's in the package. On the next day someone had called me on phone and i can't understand what he was talking about. he speaks like from an african accent. Then he texted me that his a custom officer in malaysia and my package is been on hold. so I immediately email the guy i met online and he told me that he will call the custom officer immediately. after awhile he told me the custom had ask money of about 500$ to be able to claim the package. he was in a ship and he won't be able to send the money so he ask me to pay it. and when he told me that i already know its a scam.

    Same story happened to me, I met that guy on the metrodate site, he was italian called "denispaul" but converted to islam and had different names, sometimes, Hassan, Hanif. He sounded so nice and started to ask many things about my family life but never wanted to talk with cam or even phone, only writing, arguing that most important is true feelings. After a while he said he will be travelling to Australia and then told me he bought value stuff to show me his love...and this is where the whole thing appeared.

    I received a call from a guy with asian accent asking me to pay 850$ to release the package to be delivered to my place, so I told him just to ask the sender to pay that money. In the meantime I checked the website that my lover gave me with the tracking number. After 2 days the site appeared to be completely fake. The so called Malaysian custom guy called me again asking me to transfer money urgently.

    I would like to find a way to get those crazy people fall into their own trap,because I am sure many innocent women are hoping this is true love.

    Scam. 2 weeks is too quick. You should never have to pay to receive a gift. Why is he sending you money in this form, it's very strange.

    Knowing his face doesn't mean you can find him. So how can he get in trouble? It's a big hassle getting his local police involved and it's hard to prove, they prob won't bother. So... he is playing with that safety net.

    Do yourself a favour and move on. This is pure trouble. Sorry luv, but you should listen to what your senses are telling u.

    I got scammed once, though nothing to do with my heart thankfully. It took me ages to contact the local authorities there to get some help, and finally I learnt there are actually whole groups of people who sit in a house with multiple phone lines and laptops, running these scams regularly. So u will never get anything back.. They know what they are doing so they are very convincing.

    Hi everyone

    can i ask what company your boyfriend use when he send you a package?
    i need a reply pls.

  • edited 11:49PM
    Please take note,and never send money. I met a guy online who wanted to come to Australia to meet me. He lived in South Africa but was from Congo. We chatted on webcam all the time and on the phone. He couldnt get a visitor visa so I went there to meet him. I went 3 times and the last time with my parents to meet him when he propsed. We were together 18 months when he stopped answering my calls after we supposedly lodged a fiance visa application. All up I spent $40 000 supporting various things he told me about from sick to died relatives to loosing his job needing a new phone so we could talk, to appartment that i could easily stay visiting and to help him pay- which I did to help our relationship. In the end he lied stole the money and didnt come or even place the application leaving me broke and hertbroken. So please be careful, seeing their face on webcam, talking on the phone knowing where they work, and meeting them are all not signs that they arenot scammers. I am an intellegent woman who got caught because I fell in love, and I guess in love with the wrong man.

    It is better you stop it cos that is the logic they used to scam on the internet. Think about it very well, when you pay that they will still call for another money, it is scam.
  • Has anyone on here had dealings with a man that claims his name is George Harrison and is from Marietta, Ga, He says he is 64 and a widower. He had a daughter named Rebecca who died at age 23.

    This man is definitely not from Scotland firstly he writes like a foreigner , his spelling and his terminology are not that of a Scotsman.
    Secondly the Marine Chips he writes about is nonsense and are also known as the Aqua Chip Scam perpetrated by people who claim to be based or doing business in Malaysia but are in fact scammers from Nigeria. 

     On this site on the right hand side read the emails from Tony and Jeff , they are very similar to the email you received.
    Both Tony and Jeffs emails have identical wording to your email in particular this one.......

  • I'm not sure what country you're in, but if customs wants you to pay import duty, then they need to send you an official receipt or some kind of documents. This sounds very fake.
  • Gemz, that sounds like a classic scam. For some reason these guys always seem to say they are widows with a single young child... DON'T send any money. 
  • hi guys, just want to add to this forum, 5 years ago i got scammed, by a guy called george makery, he says he is from california with a 15 yr old son and he is working on a contract, he comes out with the same old blah blah stuff and is very very good at what he does, he goes on dating websites and prays on new people who have joined the site as he know they are very vulnerable, i did report him to the fraud squad but alas no joy, he also uses facebook to collect victims too, and he is still doing it to this day so please please be careful....

    Hello, I wanted to know has anyone been scammed by a Cameron Paterson? My story goes like this: we met on line in November on a dating website called POF. I had just signed up and he was one of the men who were interested. He told me to set up a IM account and we started IM each other. The next day he deleted his profile and when Ii asked him why, he said he found what he was looking for so he didn't need to use the website any more. After about a week or so he declared his love for me. We still were IM or texting one another, no actual conversations. Then days later we planned to meet but it did not happen because he had to fly to his mom because she was in the hospital. He finally called me telling me he needed $8000 and could he borrow it from me. He mom needed to be transferred to another hospital in NY. I told him I didn't have the money so he asked me to get a loan to help him out if I cared about him. I told him no my credit was bad. I then told him I could fly down to be support for him and he said he loved me for offering that but it was not necessary. He started to badger me for the money and I told him no. After I decided I was done with him he said he was sorry and just desperate. A week went by and he told me about a friend Abrahams that needed money to leave Lagos. He badgered me for $1113 to help his friend out because he had no money because he paid his moms hospital bills. So I decided to help and he promised to come and to pay me back but instead he flew to Lagos to be wih his friend who was dying and in doing so missed his moms funeral. I must tell you he quoted scripture verbatim and I thought he was a Godly man but in the end I ended up sending him a total of $4300 for different things because once he got to Lagos he was stuck there because of the BTA and he needed help to get back home. He gave me flight information that was incorrect and when I went to pick him up from the airport he never came. Two months later he finally contacted me with some excuse why he wasn't on the plane and how he need more money because he was attacked and his money stolen. We talked about going to Italy and getting married there and adopting children. Needless to say, he is still begging for money and professing his love everyday. He asked that I wait for him and not to date other men just be calm and patient. He has tried manipulation by saying he is starving and that I have no idea how horrible that place is. He refuses to tell me anything about himself and that he wants to tell me everything once we are together. He even had a fake lawyer send me email stating how he would help him get home if I sent money to him but when I asked for a reference number so I could validate the lawyers legitimacy- the lawyer got mad and refused to help him because I insulted him. So now he wants another $2400 so he can come to me (his true love). I'm thinking I will never get my money back or even see him. I'm pretty sure this is a scam, what do you all think???
  • Gemz , I have lived in several countries and to the best of my knowledge customs always contact you by letter and they do not ask you to send money via western union. I am assuming you are in the Phillipines so you may not be aware that this is a scam and I agree whole heartedly with Ella and Anya DO NOT send him any money and stop all contact with him immediately.

    Suebee, you are right you will never get your money back it is a scam you should stop  communicating with this man 

  • Hi, Girls. I also experienced this exactly same package story. A person "Terry Smith" from UK sent me a message on website "Hi five" abt month ago and I gave him my LINE ID so we started having conversation. Few days ago he asked me for my address, email and phone number so he could send me a gift. Then he sent me an email said he also put 7000pounds in that gift and he gave me a courier website and tracking numbers. I was shocked and I think that must be a joke because who will do this stupid thing to send cash like 7000pounds to someone never met. Then I googled and found this is actually a cam. The other day I got notified that if I dont pay that fake courier company 1230 USD and I will not receive that 7000 pounds sent by this scammer because this 7000pounds are on hold by Malaysian custom.I really hate this so I was hoping to report this to police and hope they can arrest them but I found that I cant report to my local police they wont accept the crime happened in other country. I had reported this to IC3 and interpol but I dont get any response. I am even pretending I will send them money so I have got their account details for the police to arrest them.

  • Momo, you do not say what country Terry is from. Are you still in touch with him?
  • edited January 2014

    He said he is from UK. But I dont think that is real. I think he must be group with the person "WAHIDA AHMAD" and I m not in touch with him anymore.( please see below our last conversation yesterday,I didnt make it last night coz this system not allowed me to post too many comments in a short time.) I had provide those account detail to interpol and IC3 however I still dont get any reply from them. I feel hopeless. I am so angry. I dont understand why they dont arrest them by that account detail.


    I was thinking to let it go and block him coz i dont have the patience anymore. But when I think of they(the scammers group) has got my phone number and they could text me or call me anytime they want.

    yea, if its too good to be true, it is most likely a scam. Im glad you were smart enough to notice it. I use to do the same thing when i lacked confidence. But that was all in the past after using and gaining the confidence i needed to search for women outside dating sites.
  • hello have meet a gentle and sweet man he says he is from the UK we al write hour each other troght fb after a few weeks he asked me far my adrres an phone number he claims he will send a xmas gift for me, so after some days he write and let me know that he send some yhings for me in a package and that in this package there was 4000$ for me, some days ofter this i get a message from som costumer in Malaysia telling me i have to deposit 600$ for the package have been old in malaysia costum and if i dont deposit that amount of money they would not send the package, so wen i tell him bout it he told me that they thit contact him already but he did have to trouble to Holland for some job and he did not have no money with him, so he told me to get the money and deposit so i can get the package because he send plenty valouble things for me and an envelop whit 4000$, from hear that i knew it was a scamm so i dont deposit no money and they are still caling me for the money so i am so glad i get to this site and ready this stories so i can finally get sure that i was been scamm, the sweet an gentle man name is casper curtis
  • Well done Ketti. most definately a scam.
     Be strong as these people may harass you for the money.Can you change you phone number?
    Good luck and I hope you meet a lovely person who is not a scammer.
  • I have met a guy on line and being talking for months. He has a cell phone from austin Texas and a cell phone from Nigeria. I met him on line when he was in Texas.Works in Nigeria. Have send him money . He has a son in Texas who is ten and he is a single parent. Had fever no money goes on and on. Paid for his food ,flight twice, medicine , transportation.
  • Is he real or I'm I being scam. I love and care for him. His name is Michael Anthony Reeves.

    Anna, stop immediately sending this man money. Why are you sending money to a man you have never met.?
    Expat workers i.e. Americans, British etc earn very good money in Nigeria, they can have accommodation, healthcare etc included.So ask yourself why would this man need your money.

    Everyone of these scams have the same story the mans wife has died leaving them a single parent who travel abroad to earn money, Then there are a lots of reasons for your internet lothario to need money as you have found out.
    This man does NOT love you he only wants money, his child does not exist and he is probably in his bedroom or in an internet cafe somewhere in West Africa,. 

    GET OUT NOW dont have any contact with this man,change your phone number email address.

    Thanks for the information .Can yu look on Facebook's and see his picture . I'm the only one to access it and he said he has being hacked. He said he is coming to see me in a week . Also it is hard to get a flight to Canada. His Facebook's account is [email protected]

  • I gave him 1,500 for his flight to Texas as getting a flight to Canada is to hard. I also send 500.00 for change of flight . Want to know the truth . If he is lying want him stopped . Being talking to him since May 2013. The hard part is I love him deeply .
  • Yesterday he said he needed 150.00 for luggage fees. Or he couldn't get on flight . I send him 50.00. Said he will phone me tonight .The strange thing is if he got on the plane why did he check is Facebook's account at 545pm my time. And if he didn't get on the flight why hasn't he text me. I feel I let him down. Had no more money to give.
