Internet Love Scam

I got to know Jerry Cheung via coffee meets bagel app and chatted with him daily for 3 weeks. Jerry introduced himself as a singaporean raised in moscow as he was adopted by a russian at a young age. He said he has been living in Singapore for 8 months and he is waiting for licence approval to set up his company in singapore. He introduced his occupation as an architect.

Jerry will shower you with lots of attention and professes his love, saying that he feels strongly connected to you even before he met you. You will think that everything sounds normal as Jerry shares his daily photos with you (e. G. Gym, food), updating you of his whereabouts etc. He also set a time to meet though not immediate as he said he had to return to moscow for work one week into the chat.

Two weeks after chatting, one day, he said he had to rush to Indonesia as one of the building he erected collapsed. During investigation, his passport was seized by his client and he was hit by his client, injured and had to go to the hospital.

I was half believing when i heard the story, but thank god my friend told me about this site and i found a few reports here with exact/almost similar plot. I blocked him on line since then even before he could ask me for money.

To all the girls out there, please be aware of this person who might use the same story line to con others.
