Beware of Internet Love scams!
Anonymous | 30 May 2023
He started telling me about a private equity project on a BTO crowdfunding platform, explaining that David gave him the chance to work on it. He wanted to meet me near my office since he had a meeting nearby. I agreed, but ten minutes later, he told me that the client wanted him to send something back, so he couldn't meet me.
There were several red flags in our interaction. Within just two days of chatting, he revealed too much personal information about himself, including his salary, investment details, and even information about his family and ex-girlfriend. He didn't hold back when sharing these details. Within three days, he expressed strong feelings for me. He also brought up the private equity project suddenly and mentioned his boss, David Chen.
Given my suspicions about his words and actions, I decided to do some research and came across similar scams and storylines reported on a website. Fortunately, I only wasted five days of my time on this person and nothing more. I'm sharing my story here to raise awareness and encourage everyone to be cautious and alert.
