'He destroyed my life' - woman conned out of £13k in internet dating scam

Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill

First published in News by

A WOMAN who was scammed out of more than £13,000 by a man she met on a dating website said her life had been “destroyed”.

The 56-year-old from Bournemouth met the man in February this year and they became friends over two months via email and Skype.

He claimed to be a UN medic working in Syria and seeking companionship online, but in reality she had fallen for a cynical scam.

“I have paid the price for being naive,” said the victim, who wished to remain anonymous.

“It is difficult to meet men in everyday life at my age, I went on this website looking for companionship and we became good friends.

“He gave me his life story, sent me a picture, even spoke to me on Skype, I had no reason to disbelieve him. He talked about our future and paint a beau-tiful picture. But that’s all it was.”

The scammer said he was sending her a package for safe keeping, and in March she received a video supposedly showing the package at Heathrow Airport with gold bars being removed by customs officials.

When questioned, her online correspondent said he had been given the bars by a Syrian sheikh and wanted her to look after them.

But with the video came emails with official-looking documents from the airport, the Home Office and HMRC demanding a £1,770 handling charge and £7,400 in tax before the package would be released.

By borrowing money from her mother and son and maxing out her overdraft and credit card the victim paid the fictitious fees, and she later transferred £4,000 to the scammer for his air fare home.

The fraud was only exposed when the victim’s son spotted the same video of the gold being unpacked on YouTube.

“I have accepted I probably won’t get the money back, I am paying off my debts at £300 a month but I only get paid £850,” said the victim.

“Looking back I can see I was really stupid, but I didn’t know that these people were so clever.

“I want to warn people not to make the same mistake as me, as I would hate any other vulnerable woman or man to fall victim.

“You never know who you are talking to on the internet.”

The case was referred to West Midlands Police by Action Fraud, but the victim said the force had told her its investigation had stalled.

Crime Commissioner: Case has been handled in slapdash way

DORSET Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill said her case had been handled in a “slapdash and slapstick” way and he would refer it to the Policing Minister.

The victim had made a complaint that neither Action Fraud nor West Midlands Police had updated her regularly about the status of the investigation – and her phone calls to them were just “passed around”.

“Other than an intervention from Victim Support, the victim has had nothing. This is not the way to carry out police investigations,” said Mr Underhill.

An Action Fraud spokesman said there was “more for us to do” to support victims of economic crime.

He said a new system for informing victims was introduced in April, as well as funding to set up an Economic Crime Victim Care Unit

At her age she should be a lot wiser than she obviously is. Surely no one is so desperate for company (after all she has a family and friends), that they would PAY someone to be their friend, for that is basically what she was doing.

This shows again, just how vulnerable people are when on the internet. When someone flatters you, you take it more deeply than you would in real life, and the area of your brain which doubts or questions someone's actions doesn't seem to be working. The worrying thing is that these scams are still successful, even though we've been aware of them for years. Family members must watch out for each other.

The funny thing is if she had received an out of the blue junk mail from this guy asking for just 13 pounds in exchange for gold she would have deleted it straight as a scam but a few months of chatting on the internet and she's suckered into giving away a thousand times that amount!

I think they also feel that because they met them through a dating website then it is somehow safer, she may even have been the one to make the first contact making her unaware that she was in fact the target?

I don't think this was a case of her being greedy and hoping to get something for nothing like the Lottery winner scams that drop through the post, I think she truly thought she was helping out someone she had become attached to, but I think the family, especially her son should have been a little more vigilant before lending her the money, unless she lied as to its reason of course? Sometimes it needs someone outside of the online relationship to see through what is going on?

and I would not have charged her a penny.
All she needed to do was to pay both of our train and taxi fare's to the Ritz and a single fare for me back to Bere Regis
I would not have charged her anything
you know.
I'd rather pay the £13,000, than to deal with your' pathetic ramblings.

Maybe actually a train trip with you, so I could push you out!

Bedsit?

I live 2 minutes from the Royal Crescent, Bath in a Grade 2 Listed house.
Idiot.

Let me guess. You live with Mummy & Daddy, with everything done for you?

Silly boy.
