Jerry loves sending stolen poetry

Ever since you walked into my life, I have been smiling. There hasn't been a day when I have gone to sleep with a frown on my face, and it's all because of you. Honey, I am glad that you came into my life. I have always wanted the love of my life to be understanding, loving, caring, faithful and most of all someone who would accept me for who I am. Now I have found the person I was looking for. My heart told me that my Charming was there when you first said hello to me over the phone. I didn't have to think twice when you asked me to be your wife. I knew that you were Mss. Perfect. I don't think that there is, or there could be, anyone better than you out there for me.

I love you with my whole heart. I have never trusted anyone the way I trust you. Sometime I even doubt myself, but I know I will never doubt you because you are my true love. I know deep down inside that you will never break my heart or never let me down in anyway.

Thank you honey for everything. I pray to god everyday to bless you with everything you deserve. I will love you until the end of time.

Always and Forever Yours,
Jerry

When I feel so confused & my life so weird,
I just turn to you so that I could breathe.
You make sense to everything that I hear or see,
Because you are my soul, thoughts & dreams.

Because of you in my life,
You made me realize how life can be so wonderful.
You gave me love & strength,
You made me believe in love one more time.

In your eyes I see my destiny,
In your smile I see hope.
In your dreams I see success,
In my life I see you.

You made me breathe again,
You made me feel comfortable.
You took away the heavy burden on my heart,
& you took away my pain.

You gave me something that nobody can get,
You gave me your love.
You gave me the key to your heart,
& you took away mine.

You are always in my thoughts,
In my dreams I see you,
Kissing me & hugging me,
& giving me the love that is so pure.

I love you like I’ve never loved before,
I love you because of your love to me.
I love you because you help me find my goal,
I love you because you believe in me.

this number is malaysian number......

Hi morena,

What Ralph was trying to explain was that although the telephone numbers are Malaysian, it is not certain that the scammer is in Malaysia, he may be using someone else to use the phone.

It could also be case that the phone may have been purchased in Malaysia, and then sent to the scammer by post, or even by a previous Malaysian victim.

Never send money by Western Union/Moneygram.
Never give personal information.
Online anyone can claim to be anyone, any age and from anywhere.

All of the reasons listed by The Enchantress are possibilities.

In this case, I believe that one of 2 or 3 scammers (all African) in this group has moved to Malaysia, this is certainly not uncommon and lines up with the IP addresses I have seen.

In the last year I have noticed an increasing number of African scammers operating from Malaysia and targetting Malaysians, we even had one visit us about 6 months ago
