He will be nice to you and make you think that he is close to you. He will chat and make video calls to you. [July 2018]

After a few weeks to a month, he will inform you that he has some good information on Gold and oil trading news.

He has been earning big money. He will also say that he is out of a relationship and he cannot find and lost his past relationship. He will mentioned that he is a business man. But recently, we tried contacting him with another phone and he mentioned that he is working in fashion industry.

He will let you make 2 successful trades. Then he will ask you to put more money into the account to make it VIP with more leverage. To be a VIP, you have to input 50k USD.

On a night in late August, he informed again to make a trade. He gave the wrong amount of lots to buy in Gold and it burst the limit and make a lost of 28k USD.

After the trade, he will console you that he will help you in 3 months time with hard cash of 100k USD.

He will then tell you to borrow money from friends and banks to make another trade. Of which, i was so silly to believe it and waited for my Bonus to try 1 last time about 3k USD. Again it was lost through trade.

He will again console you and say that he will drop by Singapore and help me out as he promised. Again, he tried to persuade me to take loan from bank and promise a better information this time round. However, i cannot bring myself to trade on the expense of others. Furthermore, i have already lost my saving and my parents are retiring. I cannot afford such actions and worried over the consequence what may befall me and my family.

After which in mid October, he mentioned that he is very busy with his business and he has to delay his coming over to Singapore to November 2018. I have tried to convince him to provide a date. But all he say is that he understand and will try his best to come over.

On the 22nd of October 2018, he blocked my line chat and then only then I realized that i was totally scammed.
so in total, i lost about 80k USD plus without calculating the cost of remittance fee to the trading firm in Hong Kong.

He will market his age as 33 to 35 years old.
