Hi I met a man on username 4nicewoman on the 22 April 2013 this year, we starting communicating to each other. His Name is Roberto Neal he said he come Swan Hill Melbourne Australia, he got a project in the UK to work on the Oanda Oil and Gas Resources PIC Montrose Field, North Sea, United Kingdom. His Phone number in the UK 0011
447011196594. he got a payout figure of 1,050,000.00 for doing this project and now the authorises over in the UK are holding these fund until he pays the tax that is due for these funds.
The FSA in London are holding these funds until he pays these tax fees, I have phoned the FSA London, and they told me that, they have ceased business and incorporated into the FCA over in London He told me because he is an Australian citizen, that cannot do anything for him. He asked for some money from me, which I know now that was a stupid thing to do. I gave him my bank account details for he could deposit the money he got, he cannot get any of out, because he would need my other account number I also reported him to the authorises here so they aware of these.

I have the account name of his friend were the money went into, it as follows her bank is HSBC BANK Account number 361610451347 BIC 496576 Rosemary Daniel 34 Windermere Point Old Kent Road London SE15 1DY United Kingdom Beneficiary/bank code MIDLGB2141U Beneficiary Account Number GB18MIDL40052531675265

The things if the FSA has finished business means someone has their old letters writing to people like me and this Roberto Neal, or maybe he was played for a fool as well, like he played me

I NEED TO HAVE INVESTIGATED, PLEASE HELP ME I know I wont get any of my money, but this will stop it from happening again

Can I upload photos of this guy on here so everyone is aware of this man, or thing. I think it not his true photo, but with the information I am starting to wonder this person is photos, so that he impresses the women on these dating sites. How they got hold of these photos, I don't think this guy is aware of what is happening with his photos

Hi Rachelina, sorry, but this is a fairly common scam.

The phone number he gave you starting with 4470 is a re-direct number, which means he could be anywhere in the world, most commonly with this scam, he is in either Malaysia or Nigeria.

Do not bother contacting or communicating with him any further, he will have a long list of excuses, pleas and different techniques to use to try and get you to send him money.

If you could contact one of the Moderators, (Green names) and forward any emails to them, they will be able to have the bank account checked.

Perhaps not but I wouldn't take the chance. There's also the possibility that you're now open to Identity Theft.
Let your bank know what has happened. They may need to give you a different account.

Hi Rachelina as said ^^^ I'm sorry to add that the Montrose and Arbroath Field is operated by Talisman Sinopec Energy UK Limited.

The Montrose and Arbroath Field is coming to the end of its producing life and margins are tight, there is no way any one would receive a completion bonus of that magnitude.

Hi Rachelina and welcome to the Forum.
I am very sorry that you were scammed Romance scammers are a particularly horrible form of scammer, they take more than money. Please for your own safety, cut off all communication with him. Block him, change you email accounts if you can, block him on your phone or in chat. No matter what he told you, it is likely that he is a young Nigerian man in a internet café.

Please visit our sister site, Scamwarners , they can help you although the money is gone. Posting his email address, and letters can help other victims.

if you are willing, can you post the email asking for money with the full header displayed. We may be able to make his life more than a little difficult.

the Financial Services Authority has indeed closed shop, but its remit is now met by the Financial Conduct Authority which is pretty much the same thing.

This is a common type of scam and and as Capone correctly pointed out, particularly callous and hurtful.

Just as a heads-up, the scammer or his crew may try to hit you from other angles. Identity theft may be one, or they may try to pay into your account and get you to send a surplus payment on, or they may pretend to be from the FBI or other law enforcement agency. Just be very suspicious of any unusual emails or calls and if you have any doubts, please share them with us, either on the forum or PM'd to a moderator.
