If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.
The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC.If this happens to you, please report it at ftc.gov/complaint — click on Scams and Rip-Offs, then select Romance Scams.She put me in touch with Payne and they wanted me to open a bank account so they could wire me some money! We have so much information on these men that the ic3, ftc, FBI could use to catch them. I can no longer get a bank account, a credit card or any type of credit. Gave me the sad sob story of that he was worried that he wasn't able to talk to his son whenever he wanted to because his son's phone got stolen so stupid me offered to help in getting a prepaid phone to send to his son.But they don't want our information and say our crime is too small to spend the resources. These men are a huge international group with people all over the world. I've been talking to a man named Herbert Mundt. He stated that he wanted to get the new Iphone 7 for him that his son wanted that I told him sorry can't help with that. I was skeptical at first but then got hooked with his sweet and romantic words.
I didn't think it would hurt to do that so I did.
