Samuel Golan (probably an alias) posed as a property investor, and wanted to invest in my business.
He said that he was willing to invest, but had to move funds from Switzerland to Holland, in order to send funds to me.
He asked if I could cover the costs of the transfer, by providing him with euros or gold. He said that he would create a contract via his lawyers, but said that I could have an initial amount in cash, as he had sterling currency with him.
We were supposed to exchange the amounts, but when he was supposed to provide his funds, he created a distraction that he had to collect the money from his colleague.
His colleague arrived by car, and instead of collecting the money, he drove off with the funds that I had given to him.
If anyone else has been scammed by this person, please let me know when and where.
I have already reported this to the UK Police, and will report to the Belgium Police. If anyone else has similar experiences, that will help catch him.
