Internet Love Scam
Matched with a guy on CMB named Harry Lee, who claims to be from KL. After 1-2 days of matching, he requested to exchange WhatsApp and continued the conversation there.

We chat twice a day, in the afternoon and at night. He mentioned he's a team lead security analyst for an ASEAN company, often traveling overseas for work. Claims to own a condo and a car, stating he's seeking a partner hence his presence on CMB. Even shared a video of him deleting the app, urging me to do the same. Also shared that his ex-girlfriend cheated on him, seeking sympathy.

He mentioned having work in KL for 3 weeks, during which he couldn't use his camera due to NDA. Kept the conversation genuine, even providing flight details, and suggested meeting up upon his return.

He repeatedly mentioned investing capital into a private deposit recommended by his friend Melvin. When I refused to discuss finances, he got angry and ghosted me.
