by Catherine (Sheffield, UK) I am a widow and after just over two years my friends told me to try internet dating.As I was in my 40's I thought I would join a site for over 40-plus dating which you pay a subscription for and I thought would be safe.Here is a piece of email I have received from his Barrister.Hello Madam, we were just told that he needs to pay for his flight ticket and BTA money before his documents can be approved because his documents supposed to be out today so he can get it over there in Syria by Monday, so we waiting on the payments of his flight ticket and BTA money so his documents can be approve by the UN Madam. We met on a dating site 2 months ago and he said he was going to buy a house for us and get married to me when he comes back to Australia.He claimed that his wife died from polycystic kidney disease 8 years ago and he was ready to move on. Said he was from Washington DC, but lives in Baltimore, MD. His English was broken and he seemed confused by situations happening in the US (such as insurance stuff, in regards to hospitals). He had way too much time to spend on Twitter for being a military doctor dealing with a suicide bomber a couple of days ago.
But I will say if they sound too good to be true cut them off and don't even say anything to them just get rid of them as soon as possible for the sake of your heart and in a lot of circumstances your pocket.
I didn't let him get to the point of asking me for money.
I just talked to him yesterday and stopped it today.
Please note , it will cost 5950 US dollars for the both, i mean the flight ticket and the BTA. He needed ,000,000 dollars to send things to me and I gave him that money, and he gave me an address in Frankston. Watch out for a Robert MIller [email protected] me on a singles line.
I hope to read from you as soon as you get my mail. I went there and it was not his, a young couple live there, he is a scammer so please be carful as I lost that money and reported him to FBI I too got contacted by a guy on fb, very similiar story to all those already posted except mine said he can't send a pic as mobile phones not allowed in army barracks he works in, in Aleppo Syria. My friends think he is a scammer but so far its been nearly 2 months and no asking for money. He says he is a contractor working in England from Austin Texas, and wife died.I haven't responded yet because my alarm bells went off straight away. But I told him I didn't have it and he asked if I could send him a credit card.
