The man who scammed me money three years ago, contact me again, he said he was sorry and will repay the money to me. Of course, I know he is lying, what should I do? My case was reported to police three years ago, but finally closed file by police for further investigation impossible. If you were scammed by someone, and you get a call about a refund, that call is probably also a scam. I was scammed by a guy calling himself Peter Kaua Sullivan, my fiance.
I met him on Match. Just as you all said he was stuck abroad, his son had cancer and he owed taxes to Istanbul, Turkish government for job done there. He also had the money forwarded from Kenya or so he said. I was at the airport waiting for him to arrive several times and he never showed. I had almost the same exact thing. He was coming to see me but his crude oil shipment wouldn't ship because he had to pay insurance. Supposedly he all ready paid 37K. He was telling me he was in Istanbul Turkey. I told him repeatedly I had no money. He tried to make me feel guilty because I couldnt send the money.
I was talking to someone on Plenty of Fish. He had a European accent and told me he was from Sofia, Bulgaria. We spoke for a long time and he told me he was on a ship heading to Australia for business in shipping. Eventually he did ask if I would accept a check that a client owed him. I said no due to scams.
I did think about it and said I would accept the check but I would not deposit it in my account. I went to the bank and asked them to check if it was legit. I can steal it!
The check was deposited to a new account just for that purpose. The following day the bank told me the check was fake.

I also requested copies of the check. I was able to contact the supposed sender that lives I Maryland. He was an elderly man who told me that he and his wife had identity issues and he never heard of the third party bank the check was cut from. The bank was legit, just not his bank.
I called the sender of the check and told him it cleared but I was keeping the money. Then after much fighting, I took pictures of the check that the bank had stamped and told him it was fake and that I spoke to his client that never had an account at that bank.
Anyway he denied all and had accused me of stealing his money! I had the exact same thing. Girl first asked for small amount to get her i tunes subscription but i didnt gave after sometime she stopped talking to me. Me also was talking to a girl i met in meetme she said she was an e6 sergeant in syria her name was Catherine hannisick after 3 days of talking she ask for itunes card and I brought it after she started to ask for more so i blocked her on hangouts we never spoke on phone only email and hangouts this went on for almost 5 months i send her about 1.
I got in touch with Catherine hannisick again through meet me app is where she always be she claiming that she love me and wants to marry me she said her commander said he will pay for half her plane ticket and she needed to come up with the other half of dollars then she said if i could pay the whole amount so she wont have to pay him back she also said that the commander will call me can anyone help me i dont think a person on a mission in the army have that much time to be texting and on dating app i send this person already i ask her for proof because she will say she have nothing to eat because the camp was attack she would send me an image of pasta from the internet i felt so stupid omg can anyone please help me what should i do.
I have a similar experience with a girl who said she is Mandy Bender, sent me a friend request on Facebook, I was curious why a beautiful girl like you should contact me, anyway she got me a hangouts site which suppose to be private and we chatted for 3 days and I had a inkling I was being scammed as she asked me to get a I tunes voucher, I played dumb and made out I couldn't get one, then she started asking me about money so I said I was in debt, the big thing was asking for my address which I declined, so I knew she was a scammer, she told me I was the best thing that has happened to her, she kept telling how much she loved me and I was the only person for her.
I have now blocked her and good riddance.
Facebook need to do something about these persons. I just had a similar experience on Instagram. A guy named Kurt McMahon sent me a friend request.

Then started professing his love for me too quickly. That his lost his wife 2 years ago in a car accident.
He was looking for love again and was convinced I was the one, the search was over lol. He even wanted to meet up with me. Then started asking for iTunes cards to upload some files online for a project he had at work, a contract that was gonna help him gain lot of money. I knew he was lying all along. I was communicating with him tru hangouts app.
I went bck to his Instagram page it said user not found. That was yesterday October 16, I told him countless time even from start that I he was a fraud, a fake! Told him that yesterday before blocking him on Instagram and deleting him on hangouts. Instagram needs to do sth about these persons too!!!!! Sounds like same guy that did same to me. Claimed he needed money that his bank account had been frozen in the USA.
Said he was working in the Gulf of Mexico. He showed me a video and didn't have an accent but talked on phone couldn't hardly understand him because of his speech. Its very similar to what happened to me. He wanted money said I was his lovely wife and his wife died in car accident. But I fell for his scam but sent no money. Mathew MacCleary was scamming both you and me simultaneously. Your name isn't Alana is it because he once called me that by mistake.
