:"Beverly Hills", California
recipe follows typical romance scam:
Met on arablounge.com (they take no responsibility for this and will not remove his "profile")
"Frankie" initially was living in Beverly Hills at 1st contact but was leaving to do oil pipeline repair....Alaska then Caspian Sea. Had a phone #310-601-4479 (Beverly Hills). Skype showed it as out of Maine?
Sweet words emails, im's, phone calls.
Claimed to be born in Greece of Italian mom, American dad. Mom died when he was 14....Petrochemical engineer as his career.
After 2 or so months needed me to send a Western Union pmt. to a "Secure Securities and Investment Co." contact person Neul C. Owen to get his "secuity deposit box sent to the U.S. for him since he was coming here for us to be together "forever"...blah, blah, blah.
Fell for it and sent the $$$ almost $1400.....along w/ my social, copy of Ca. D.L. and passport...OMG....3 days later got an email from this company stating they needed $4300 more....then I realized I was scammed. Cried....heartbroken and financially hurt badly.
Over the heartbroken more mad now.
These people are scum....I kept thinking it was the nice looking guy in the picture but now I understand it's a "team" of scammers using stolen identities. Satan at it's finest.
