Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We would need to see what he wrote to confirm for certain that this is a scammer. However, I can tell you that there are a lot of African scammers that are active in Kuala Lumpur so I would be very suspicious.

Need to post photos?

Pls find attached email :

Darling I'm so sorry for the little misunderstanding we normally have sometimes. i really want you to know I'm stressed and moody sometimes and want you to always listen to me. i really want to make out time for you my love and as well write to you often from my heart. First of all, I would like to say I love you with all my heart! I will never ever forget that you are my one and only love and the only woman i want in my life. I remember each and every detail. Meeting you has been my dream and it shall be dream come true soon darling and as well answer to my prayers. I will always love you. My heart belongs to you and ONLY you. I never want you to forget that. Before I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with someone far away and miles away from me ... but, this has totally proved me wrong. I am truly happy to be with you. You are my everything and I will do anything for you. I promise you when we meet and have each other, I will never leave your side

You brought love and laughter to my empty, sad and boring life. My heart had known only emptiness until the day you came and filled my heart to overflowing with your jovial ways. Your sense of humor has turned my frown into a smile.

You taught me how to love again, you taught me to give and receive love by trusting in you and believing. You taught me to go the extra mile. And though there are miles between us, I never stop thinking of you, you have brought a change into my life and my heart is forever yours.

I can never forget you, Thoughts of you warm my heart. You complete me, Darling i want you to know that you are everything my heart desire.

Love You Always,

Hi ppp!

I'm sorry to say that there is no doubt that you are dealing with a scammer.
Google "You brought love and laughter to my empty, sad and boring life. My heart had known only emptiness until the day you came and filled my heart to overflowing with your jovial ways. Your sense of humor has turned my frown into a smile." You will find page after page of results from different scam sites. I'm sure that you could google other parts of the email and get the same results.
The best thing that you can do now is to stop all communication with this scammer.
