I was repeatedly ask for an assistance by my FB contract shortly after we met.
Mr. Frank Johnson, the name he gave me and he is registered on a FB by, presented himself as a self employed, having a contract with Shell petroleum company as a corrosion analyst. The contract was held in a South sea region, China.
I was provided with a copy of a contract with the Shell company logo. My name was included in the contract as next of kin without my permission…
The assistance I was asked for was constant and covered different needs of Mr. Johnson both professional and personal.
He sounded very believable for a while, having good spoken and written English.
But there were significant discrepancies noticed by me which he tried to explain.
I wasn’t getting any pictures of him. Just a couple from the site of work. I definitely saw Chinese ppl on them.
For the receiving of the transfers there were Chinese people used with the real valid IDs..
I was in constant daily contact eith Mr Johnson via Viber, email and fb messenger ( till it stopped working).
He is assumingly still in China due to the overstated visa ( according to him).
He stopped contacting me once I refused to send him the money.
The total loss is about $20,000. There was my bank account used as well.
It is of a huge importance for me to find out who this person really is. I am not counting on getting my money back.
Just want to prevent further scam
The person presented himself as a widowed father of a girl.
Independent contractor having a contract with the Shell petroleum company. The contract was held in a South sea region, China.
I was ask for nonstop assistance in multiple situations which was hard for me to verify in terms of legitimacy. I do understand now that most of the information was of a fake nature.
