I have been getting emails from someone claiming to be Shawn Reventlow, for almost a month. First he "fell in love with me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me". Then he wanted me to email a copy of my driver's license and passport to him so that I could be the beneficiary of his Father's inheritance. He said he would give me $5 million if I did this. (HA !!) It's comedy...... here is the email I received this morning.... (Great command of the language.)

"Sweetie i can not leave malaysia right now because i do not have insufficient funds sweetie me and i will need to pay some bills and also get my return ticket back to the state this are all what i have been thinking about because i have been spending money ever since i have been here in malaysia and i do not want to ask you for money because i do not want you to think i am after your money JERI...if you re really willing to help me i have a bills of $4600 to pay and plus my return ticket back to the state i will be needed the total sum of $8900...and i do not know if you can help me with this."

When I google the name Shawn Reventlow, he is all over the place. I don't know if someone is using this identity, or if he is actually the person trying to con money out of people. The photos he is using are the ones in your first posting.

Welcome to ScamWarners JLS. Scammers do use the name of real people to do their criminal behavior. Scammers NEVER use their real identity. If they did, it would be too easy to catch them and prosecute them.

Thank you for posting this information.

I am not talking to this guy, but I am keeping track.

My mom is falling for this guy's shenanigans hard-core and I'm doing everything I can to convince her not to send this criminal money for this supposed flight. This guy is extremely persistent, persuasive, and truly knows the art of 'a sale.' It takes a while to build rapport with someone in order for them to trust you. He has truly charmed my mom into some sort of spell.

Apparently this guy has been talking to her for almost 3 months now daily on the phone, text messages, email, and instant messenger. She's even talked to a little boy who says he's his son and a friend of this guy's late wife. His stories don't make sense and add up. I believe in miracles but I don't believe in fairy tales.

From what I've gathered this person has his money wrapped up in high-end antiques approximately 500,000. If he could only get to the US he would be able to sell them right away and pay my mom back and they would live happily ever after. He's living at a hotel and says he's stuck in Malaysia and is pressuring my mom to help him out because they're in love and he wants the best for his son.

His first incident with her is that he had put her name on an account as sole beneficiary at May Bank Investments because he loved her he even attached a phony online banking website. He wanted like 10,000 for a transfer fee to the US.

This man sounds dangerous and has a whole operation working for him.

I need advice... because my mom is starting to take this too far and trying to apply for loans.

Welcome to ScamWarners pleasehelp, I am sorry to hear that your mother is a victim. Have you checked the headers the messages are coming from? Instructions are found in a link in my signature line.

Please post up the fake banking site. We have site killers and we can also give you information you can present to your mother showing that it is a scam.

I don't want you to reveal a lot of personal information about your mother on the open forum. It is helpful to know how savvy your mother is and how well she understands the way banking and other functions work. Even how well she understands the way internet scams work. This is information posted by the FBI: http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/fraud/internet_fraud and of course we have specific topics regarding different kinds of scams.

Please send me or any other Moderator the information I am asking about. We can help better when we have specific information. Use the PM system. ------->

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.
