Total money lost $130,000
Type of a scam Romance
Unfortunately I became a victim of romance online scam where i wired and transferred over $130,000 to few diffrent banks in US , Malaysia and United Kingdom.
After all my attempts contacting HSBC, Lloyed bank , Wells Fargo and Bank of Scottland , didnt bring any results and left me helpless and upset.
This scammer had sent me messages starting in July 2015 in facebook. He presented himself as Carlos Oliveira from London UK and then he made all efforts to establishe romatic relationship and online communication. This was done in order to gain my trust by telling me that he had fallen in love with me. It was almost one year I found out that this person he was using diffrent names as he is on the list of romance-scammers websit .
Carlos made me believe that he lives in London UK and he is self emplyed businessmen who travel to diffrent countries delivering cacao beans for Cadbury company in UK. Right after in August of 2015 he informed me that he was awarded new business contract and flying to Malaysia . Also he sent me a copy of Cadbury company contarct which later later turned out was fake document .
In September of 2015 Carlos Oliveirae informed me that cacao beans shipping was increased for $50,000 and ask me to land him this amount but it did not end there. Later he was asking me for more and more money as he was coming up with new stories and business truobles he experienced in Malaysia. It came to the point that he called me that he was arrested for not paying enouph for products storage and his passport was confiscated
On September 2 2015, i sent $9,600 tfrom my TD account to Maybank in Malaysia as he gave me instructions of shipping company receiver.. Later on September 30 2015 i wired $9,500 to to Wells Fargo account which was in state of Georgia, US Additionally I deposited direct deposit cash $6,000 to the same account . This was to a company that Carlos Oliveira trusted to pay for producats thru this company as wires to Malaysia later were returned for unknown reason
On December 16, 2015 I have wired $30,000 from my account to LLoyd bank in UK in the amount of $30,000.00 to receiver which was business partner of Carlos Oliveira and he was in contact.. This large amount I took from my pension fund. Again Carlos have given me a new receiver name. This time Carlos explained , this way it would be easier for him to get the money.
Thereafter there were few more wires from my HSBC bank account .In March 2016 to Royal Bank of Scottlend in UK in the amount of $7000 payable to Carlos Oliveira company SKT Ltd. On July 5th & July21 of 2016 two more wires to Wells Fargo bank in total amount of $11,800. Besides wires there were numerous Western Union and Money gram cash transfers in the amount of $25,000
Right after finally i realized i was scammed as ‘romance scam ‘ i have travelled to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and reported to their police -money fraud investigators. Also I have travelled to London UK and reported money scam to metropolitan police unit where they took my information but told me to report it on Actionfraud.police.uk
Which i did reported but i did not hear from them nor was anything done at that time. I have all documents of police reports , wires and emails from scammer.
As per new banking law my understanding UK banks are changing their law and will be more accounted for customer’s money losses.as . As per new code coming up in May of 2019 banks have agreed to accept complains and possibly reimberse victims who lost their money due to scam. But I am affraid its going to be for new scam victims but not in the past. At this time I am asking for your help to review and investigate my case where I have lost tramandous amount of money , basically all my life savings and pension as I am helpless devastated and financially broken. Maybe you can refer me to the right sources where I would have a chance to recocer my losses. Below I will provide you with each wire, receipts and police reports . Additinally I will attache copies of all documents to this email.a.
Scammer name as he preseted himself is Carlos Oliveira . Later I found out on male-scammers.com where he used name Rex Darron and used many names.
His cellular phone which he called me from 44 7438 8608 95, the email he used [email protected] The addres was unclear but as per fake Cadbury contract it was Oakley St Chelsea London UK. SW3.
