Can anyone help me out?
I matched with a guy on an online dating site. We exchanged numbers and we communicated via text on the first day, but the very next day he called me via WhatsApp but instead of the usual getting to know one another, he told me that he received an email from a company suggesting that his late wife had received a lump sum amount of 1.5 million pounds, but to receive the amount, he asked me to help him by emailing back to the company to tell them that I am his fiance/trusted person. He told me to give them only his full name and age, and the company will email me back asking for my information. What struck me then was that within a few minutes, an email arrived asking me for my personal information that I wasn't happy to give them, so I told the guy in question that I don't feel comfortable giving out personal details and confronted him that it sounds like a scam, but he was very adamant that the money was his and that he had worked for it and had forgot that he had the account, saying that over the past few years it had accumulated interest. The only problem was that it was in his late wife's name, therefore couldn't claim it without my involvement. The more he's trying to convince me, the more I'm thinking this man isn't geniune. Can any anyone tell me if he's true or not....here's the reply back to my email that I got.....

It's a definite scam. The 1.5 million does not exist, the scammer just wants to steal from you by charging you fees and taxes to enable you to receive the money.

The best thing to do is block everyone involved in the scam and stop responding to them. Don't accuse them of being scammers as they will just try to deny it and carry on scamming you.

Please post the email addresses, phone numbers etc used by the fake bank and by Marshal Szymon.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Since I didn't reply back to the email, I've not heard anything else. I did ask"Marshal" to send me the original email that he had received from the company in question, he hesitated and accused me for not believing him, bearing in mind I had just started texting this man a day ago, but then the very next day he sent me the email and the date on the email was dated a day later, which should have been 24th or before, the email he forwarded to me was dated 25th June 16.17pm, whereas the one that I had received was dated 24th June at 23.21pm this didn't add up so hence why I became more concerned....
