dawds14795 (16/04/2011 3:57:30 PM): personal reasons in New york,we have lots of mafia and drug king pins who would want to get at you if they see you are successful, also wanted cell number. Wanted to know what my house was, how much it was worth, what type of car I drove.
While in Malaysia David Howard told me he had to fix all transactions of money due to the deal he had to funded in Malaysia.
At this stage I went back to the dating site and looked at email there and it had that: The member you are attempting to view or contact has been deleted by our staff for not following our usage rules or has violated our Terms of Use agreement.
I confronted with this during chat :
dawds14795 (27/04/2011 12:31:40 AM): look u know what?i am not gonna contact you any more as u said
dawds14795 (27/04/2011 12:32:26 AM): i just want you to know that i am so disappointed in you and i am gonna sue that goddamned tango wire site
dawds14795 (27/04/2011 12:32:39 AM): how can they tarnish my image this way.

Then I received an email stating:
How are you doing?how was your night?i hope you had a peaceful sleep ya..... .
I just want you to know that you are always in my thoughts and i love you so much.
I just don't know what got over you yesternight but i have forgiven you and i am gonna really make you understand that i am a man of my words and not every man is the same as you think.
Have a good day honey.
Kisses and Hugssssss

To cut a long story short, he said for over a week while in Malaysia that he had his “agent” organising his flights to see me and could I book the hotel, I sent him a link to a hotel and told him to book it himself.
A number of contacts were had and he then asked me to pay for his flight and accommodation as his ‘agent’ was not doing what he wanted. I then suggested that he do it himself online as he had a credit card and access to the internet.
Two days later contacted with the statement “I just want you to know that I am hurt and all thanks to tangowire site. As I asked him questions that make him believe I don’t trust him. Anyway take care and God bless .

Contact again on 6 May 11 from David Howard with this request:
dawds14795 (6/05/2011 11:14:57 PM): my vessel is been held presently at the seaport for a document i mistakenly misplaced sometime ago
dawds14795 (6/05/2011 11:15:32 PM): like right now,i am held in between the devil and the deep blue sea
dawds14795 (6/05/2011 11:16:04 PM): they said i need to do the document here and it would cost me about 42,000 us dollars
dawds14795 (6/05/2011 11:16:17 PM): where do i get that kind of money from?

He had a ship in port in Malaysia, told that I was not going to forward any money. I was abused and he did not chat further.

Welcome here Nomorescams.

Yes, you have a scammer on your hands there. He is using the same old routine of a businessman going to a foreign country on a businesstrip, and suddenly needs money to close a deal, or needs money because of some trouble he is into. The IP adress is pointing to the Yahoo headquarters, but it could be that the scammer is located in Malaysia, where he is using an internet café for his scamming. The scammer is probably writing to several other victims. So thank you for posting this information, it can save others from falling victim to this scammer!
I took the liberty to improve the coding of the picture links so that they show.

Being a victim doesn't mean you stand alone. We're here to help you.
