Complaint / review text:
ONLINE DATING SCAM - My sister went online to match.com and had to subscribe and pay to communicate with anyone. She got a hit from Robert. Robert said he was from the Ukraine and he had an adopted daughter name Jordan. He sent my sister pic of him and his daughter. He worked on my sister for about 3 months. After one month he was in love. He sent her sweet words and love songs. He said he was an architect and very rich that she would never have to worry about money which she said she was a single mother on a fixed income but she takes care of herself and her children and did not need money. Finally he said he was flying in with his daughter to meet my sister.
The day he was set to arrive he called her and said he had just gotten a big contract in Africa and they would be there for some time. "I am so sorry my love" is what he said. Then he calls her from Africa and said someone stole his cell phone and his wallet and I don't know what else. He calls my sister and said he was desperate and needed $1000. She told him she did not have that kind of money. So finally she went and sent him $300 western union. Just as she was leaving he text her from his cell phone and said "Thank you my darling!" She went back in and was able to cancel the transaction, thank god!
She ask him if they stole everything including his cell phone how was he calling her. He got irate and told her she lied when she said she would send him money. It has been about a month now and the text and calls have started again. He says him and his daughter are trapped in Africa and in danger. "Please send me money. I love you, my darling." She said she did not have money. All she has in her life was her sister now. He wants to talk to me and says if I send him money he will double it when he gets back to the United States. I told my sister to text him and tell him I think he's a fraud and I am reporting him. Monday I am calling the police and the attorney general's office.
What make me so mad is these people prey on other when they know they are weak of heart. My sister has been gone thru so much and now he is harassing her. She was right, she has a sister that loves her and I am going to put a stop to this guy or whoever he may be. He has text her 4 times this morning and want to know why I have not called him. He wants to profess his love for my sister so I will understand. His name online is Robert, the number he is calling from is.
