Internet Love Scam
scammer: Charles Greenfield
whitehouse, canada
graduated from university of waterloo, ontaria, canada
grew up in aberdeen scotland
environmental engineer
USES COFFEE MEETS BAGEL; HAS A LINKEDIN PROFILE
consultant with kuwait petroleum corporation (kpc) on an oil rig off the coast of sarawak. claims that he wants to start a solar energy business in singapore after his contract with kpc ended. His command of English isnt very good for someone who graduated from an canadian university. HAS A THICK EUROPEAN ACCENT.

We communicated on telegram using desktop.. he claimed he couldn't video call as use of mobile phones are not allowed on the rig. He claimed to be undergoing divorce proceedings in poland. wife cheated on him. because of this, his account is frozen as wife is claiming part of his past wages as settlement contract with KPc pays half his fee at the beginning of contract and the other half at the end he asked to borrow money to help pay for chemicals to clean up an oil spill (very URGENT) as he has run out of the first half of his contract sum supplier is Lee Y?? Chemicals. contact is Ms Hui Yew +60 1 ****0248. sent picture of invoice for a previous order. spoke to hui yew on the phone. spoke good english. sounded local.

Money to be deposited into a local account held by mariani binti syarifud??? (cimb account ending 1507) as he did not have a Malaysian account and he goes through his worker to pay for supplies and this was the account given.

Amount transferred: RM12000 (S$3938) Later, he asked if i can help him open an account in singapore in my name so that his previous employer (TOTAL) could pay him without his ex-wife's knowledge (or else this money could become part of the assets she will claim in the divorce).
i refused. 

WHILE I had HOPED THAT HE WILL PAY ME BACK, I AM RESIGNED THAT THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN. Have since blocked him.
