This person/scam got my details from the Dating site called Silver Singles.
I was asked for my email because his subscription was finishing soon and he wanted to get in touch with me.
For 11 days I let him groom me not realising what was happening. I’m 65 years old so with some experience of life. It wasn’t until he came up with a story of having had a message from his bank informing him that his bank account had been compromised that I started clicking. He then went on saying that he would not be able to pay for his helicopter flight and overnight stay from the oil rig to Dubai mainland. At this point I made it clear I was not going to help him as he was a stranger to me. He still tried to make me feel bad about not trusting him. Since then Ican see that the whole experience was too good to be true but feel really bad for allowing someone to take me for a ride.
At the same time that this person asked me for my email address I had another one by the name of Michael Hills +447480735077 who did the same and my suspicions were right when I tried to confront him about it.
