Hi,

i guess i am having an excited experience of scam.

He, Philip H, found my profile on http://www.tagged.com and for now i have received about 100 of his emails.

Here is one of his mails:

My dearest heart,

Yes it is my pleasure to receive your mail, my previous mail was composed and inspired by my spirit and that is how I felt towards you, I have strong feelings towards you which no one will resist me of loving you, you are the only woman I ever loved and I believe you will make a great impact in my life.

I have not yet booked my ticket, darling, there is something I am considering of and I hope you will buy my idea, during ending of April, I have serious business meeting in united states, so I am planning to come and meet you from united states immediately the meeting is over.

So I will like you to send me your bank account details so that, I wire to your account the money we will use when I come and the one to buy the house where we will lodge. The type of house I want us to buy is fully furnished duplex with nice compound, so negotiate for that.

Please I wait for your opinion and advice as regards my above opinion in transferring the money to you before I come because I cannot carry money to United States for security reasons. My wish is to transfer it to your account so that you will make use of it to our proposal until I come.

My day is okay and I am in good health, that is the most important, my weekend was also successful, I went to beach for sight seeing and refreshment.

I wait for your lovely response and opinion.

With love full of passion,

Philip."


And he wrote :

"
I do understand what your motives is by not allowing me to transfer money to you due to one reason or the other, so in that respect, I will cancel that until I return from united states then I will come and meet you in your country with the cash for us to reason together regarding buying the house for our lodge. I want you to consider me as a member of your family because I have decided to marry you in nearest future. So do not count me out of your family.

Love Always,

Philip.
"

And I replied him :

"
I thank you for the understanding of my delay, and for the trust and for the idea of the transferring money for buying the house, but inspite all above mentioned , I do not feel comfortable about wiring your money to me. My current social status does not allow to me to do such operations with foreigners because you are not my family yet. I dont want us to be under the suspicion of money laundering and so on, as these kind of operations violate the laws of my country , and i believe your country's too. Even in case i will use that money i cannot prove the origin of the capital. That is the problem.

By the way, your concerns about the safety of money in the U.S., do not they can safely stay in your bank account?
"

He answered :

You can reach me here always by +447031870657, I look forward to hear from you again, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmuah kisses.

Love Always,

Philip.


So, i explored some of posts here and i feel like this is a scam. Only thing i want to know - how can he get a benefit from buying house in my country for a cash, if he will do this? What is usually scammers' next act?

Thanks in advance.
Archa.

Welcome to Scamwarners Archa.
It's 100% scam. The redirect phone number that transfers calls to another phone anywhere in thw world leaves no doubt whatsoever.
He isn't going to transfer any money to you. I expect you would get an email purporting to be from the FBI or some official source saying that the money transfer has been held up for some reason, and can only be released if you pay a fee by Western Union.

Hi Arnold, thank you for the clarification of my case!

Also he sent his photos, is there a need to post them? Probably , there is a misuse of someone's personal images.

Twice he called me from a phone +85219080504 and +85219880331. Are these numbers based in Malaysia?

What to do next? Just leave as it is, or better to send him a revelatory letter?

Thank you!

Hello Archa,

It is best to leave t`his scammer alone. Just quit responding th him.

It will help if you post the email address this scammer is using.

Regarding the photos you have, they are of someone else. You can post them in this thread. If you do please deface them by indicating that the pictures are being used by a scammer. The other option is to post them here viewforum.php?f=28

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

I am another one that had been scammered by him. He used this name in contact with me and also use the same style getting to know me and at last he sent me a telex copy of money transfer to me. Two days later I received phone calls from HSBC in London that the money had been holded in Malaysia and I had to pay them 2,500 Pound for some documents before receiving money. So I known that he is a scammer. I just want to share my experience.
