My name is [name redacted], I am a widow and live in South Africa. I met a William Farrah on 11 April 2018 of a website called WAYN (Where are you know ). I mistakenly reactivated my account on this site whilst looking for an email. I got contacted by him as I was not looking to connect with anyone. Out of respect I replied to his email and chatting I told him I had been scammed by a person from this site last year and did not want a friendly relationship.
He assured me that it was okay he was a good genuine God fearing person and would not hurt me. Well that was short lived after stealing a couple of hundreds dollars from me telling me he has an ex FBI agent friend in the Middle East who can help me find these scammers. He then told me it was going to cost me $2450 to register the investigation and $650 for the lawyer and $512 to transfer whatever was recovered to transfer to my funds the scammers took. He “paid” some of the fees and I paid a portion.
I kept telling him this was a scam but he kept insisting it was not and got angry when I told him this in my stress time and did not know what the consequences would be. So desperate to get my money back I had lost. In my second idiotic wisdom I sent the money but not all for the registration fees. I need him and his counterparts caught PLEASE. He stopped taking to me since Wednesday because he knows I am onto him. But does not think I will go to the authorities to report this.
He is still active on the phone number (518) 622-1939 and email address [email protected] all this he gave me not sure how many other victims they are scamming now whilst we speak. Please catch these people . The other number he gave me was 0018154509686 and email address [email protected] for a FBI agent Richardo Rodriguez who was “based in the Emirates” and who was to allocate an lawyer to oversee this investigation.
All his contacts were based in Nigeria and Money gram monies was paid into 1 person’s name the “barrister lawyer” called Paul Iyagan. I have lost a lot and just want to recover what is mine that I have worked for all my life. I will report the 1st scam later today this is currently still fresh and can be easily investigated. I can understand people taking so much advantage of the desperate lonely people out there… learnt the hard way 2nd time round but will make this a mission to expose them all. Please assist I have all the photos and information of this scammer.
I have photos f him abd his daughter Amanda and of his work colleagues. Also sent me a fraudulent copy of a US passport with changed details on it . The money paid was done via Money gram to Nigeria to the same person Paul Iyagan but 2 different addresses. There is also a payment of $361 at Western Union made by a friend of mine last Sunday to a person called Gilbert Blackwell at 66 W Lake Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30314, USA. Money was picked up on Sunday I have all the docs to prove it.
