Internet Love Scam Money Mule Scam
I met him.on a dating app. He mentioned he is a marine engineer and have 2 yrs contract with keppel and will be coming out in oct 21. Later, he mentioned he needs to go malaysia for some repair works and mentioned his accounts in US were blocked and requested me to open bank account on his behalf. I have no idea where all his source of money come from. And each time, he mentioned he needed to pay his worker in Malaysia. Until my own accounts is being blocked by the bank did I realise that it was all a scam.
