Oil rig romance scam
lisa marie - GOT SCAMMED
I know how you feel. My scammer, Bradley Bolton (see his page) was "working" in Malaysia when he found out that Malaysian banks do not take wire transfers from the UK (where his money was), but they did take them from the U.S. or Canada (where I live). He wanted me to set up an offshore domicillary account with his fake accountant, David Noel, then he would "transfer" me hundreds of thousands of dollars to me and I, in turn, would wire it to him in Malaysia. Of course, the "accountant" would have gotten all of my info (and in talking to my bank, they told me I would have had to have been a UK resident to open up an offshore domicillary account in the UK). I could have been arrested and gone to prison for money laundering and tax evasion, as the money would have been in my name. Of course, between my getting the "money" and it being transferred to Malaysia, we all know it would have gone bad. I shutter at the thought of what may have hepened to me by this scumbag scammer.
