Tommy first connected with me through Linkein. His profile claims he is an orthopaedic surgeon and is currently working under United Nation and is in Syria. He was coming to Sg for 3-4 wks this September for vacation. On the day of his arrival, he claimed that he lost his funds certificate and was held by Malaysian immigration. After talking with them, he needed to settle 20,000MR and he asked me to lend him the money, which he promised to repay me upon arrival in Sg. I became suspicious and didn't send the money.
