Targeted me on online dating platform, manipulated me into loaning him money due to a fraud case where his assets were supposedly frozen. Entered into personal loan, and he used fraudulent documents (fake pay stub & company ID for company he did not work for), fake attorney retainer letter to prove his case was real, fake name and drivers license at start, later supposedly provided real drivers license but refuses to repay loan. Stating "unforseen circumstances" won't allow.  Refuses advising location, repayment schedule, update of loan documents, etc.

He told me he was awaiting a $24 million accident settlement and also had hundreds of thousands in bank but it was frozen due to a tax fraud case.  I was manipulated and need my money back. Every time I ask he gives an excuse as to why he cannot repay. He refuses to provide any info as to his whereabouts, updated non-fraudulent loan back up documents, or a repayment schedule. I need my money back, I gave him all I had now I am suffering and he does not care one bit. He phases himself out of my life slowly after I said I'd no longer provide loan monies to him.

 I know you think you made yourself look better by adding to your report, but you really didn't. At all. "We notarized the document at the bank." All this means is that you got a notary to witness the signing of the document, whatever it was. A notary does not give a thumbs-up to a contract, he is not a lawyer who is hired to do a background check or anything like that. He is just a professional witness. That you did it at a bank means nothing either.

The bank had nothing to do with confirming the document- again, whatever that document was. You haven't been clear about that at all. "there are filed reports with the FBI, etc..." again, absolutely as meaningless as if you had written "I have posted this to, I have complained to the Better Business Bureau, and I have sent this to the United Nations and Santa Claus and the Attorney General of the Ocean."

You can file all the complaints you want, nothing erases the fact that you were an incredibly gullible person who fell for a dating scam and probably should not be handling her own money. And I find it very, very hard to believe that you gave yourself any time at all to actually get to know this guy before you decided to shovel your hard-earned money at him. VERY hard. Scammers don't invest huge amounts of time for $12000.

Hi John, not sure what your insulting email is about, but I am an educated woman and I only had a short space to truncate the situation.  I do have a written agreement in place, that he provided fraudulant back up documents to enter in to such with.  We notarized the document at the bank.  Yes, I met him in person.  Yes, I made a HUGE mistake.  I was manipulated beyond belief.  I regret falling for his lies. 

I trusted him.  But there are contractual documents in place, a fraud report to the FBI and a fraud report to the Federal Trade Commission for now, and I am working on other things I cannot disclose on this site.  Before you judge people, you should know the whole story and not infer that the person is stupid.  I've beaten myself up enough over all of this, I don't need some stranger making assumptions.

Sorry, but...

AUTHOR: John - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, September 27, 2021 far as the law is concerned, you just gave a friend money with no contract. Chances are, that money is gone forever. And, sorry again, have only yourself to blame. You're kind of a desperate person, aren't you? Did you ever actually MEET this guy, or did you just buy all his million-dollar nonsense because you wanted to? Nobody in their right mind would have fallen for his silly, cliche'd "I''m really rich I just need a little money right now darling" garbage.

It's the easiest thing in the world to fake receipts, cancelled checks, etc. online. Again, did you ever MEET this guy in person? If not, his name and picture are probably completely fake and he is gone and so is your money. Wise Up. Oh, and if you "needed the money," you should have thought of that before handing it over to what you now must understand was a total stranger on the internet. Amazing how fluid your money is until you realize you aren't going to get it back with $24 million more, isn't it? You've learned a lesson about handling money you can't afford to lose. Use that lesson to grow up a bit.
