Steve LAN/ Steve ChenCheating
Firstly , got his message via Match.. (I report to Match on the scramming too). He claimed himself as ARAMCO-CHINA (Beijing) project engineer. After 2 weeks, he decided to resign and joined new company Petrofac.. The first task to revamp a small refinary in Dubai..
First month, everything was perfect He is nice, patient, professional work alone. Second month, the project going well. But his bank account with spending limit per month.. So he needs me support urgently to buy a critical part (USD 10K)..to make sure the commissioning happened. And promise me he will visit to Shanghai.. And I got the travel agency email on his ticket confirmation ..
I supported him with some questions.. But after 2 days, he said, he has to pay some taxes in Dubai to make sure the turn-key happen.. I refused because I smell rat.. He kept pushing and writing email everyday.. Greetings morning, noon and evening.. Till I showed him another passport copy .. with same passport No.. but different name on that… He argued that was identity thief online.. I should stand with him together to hunt the bad guys.
When he needs USD cash, he would say a Chinese partner could give him USD cash but the guy must receive RMB in advance. So it is reason he could visit you in one day and refund you for the amount..his Chinese guy with a name Mike.
He used JOHN DOBIOS as travel agency.. OFFSHORE-TRAVELS.COM
He said with a daughter 7 years and lived with mother in US.
