Internet Love Scam

Met daniel through cmb app. After reading the accounts here, he triggered many warning bells.

- initially he was very intense and claimed he was dating to settle down and get married

- his fiancee slept with his friend and left him one month before his wedding

- he quickly move our conversation to wechat from cmb

- was requested not to tell any of my friends about our interactions

- claimed that his parents divorced when he was young and his mum took him to us to live with his uncle

- claimed to be a geologist from baltimore, maryland and decided to go independent

- have no social media profile

- was bidding for an oil rig project with the ukraines in the dnipro for a project in the black sea and won the project. However, he had issues transporting his expensive equipment and one of it was damaged and held custody in turkey. Wanted to borrow 5,000 and i declined


Thereafter, i did a google image search on the photos he had given me and it was linked to a doctor based in malaysia. That's how i knew i was tricked.
