Hi AnastasiaLow,Hello... everyone, is been months I have post.
The healing process is still going on, is been so hard to strive on. Every day I have been judged by friends and coworkers.
I had lost many friends every since they learnt that I've been scammed. Till now my family punished me for being involved in two scams. I had moved out and stayed in rental for time being. Is been a hard struggle, and been feeling pretty down every since.
Romance scam may involve monetary means, however it impacts the heart hardest, the heart is still hurting from the pain of being in love with wrong person. It still hurts so much. Any advice on how to heal from broken heart?
Been exercising and going to church. Trying to get mentally strong...
Hi cparis1616,I am so glad that I found this site. This morning I put two and two together and realized that I was being scammed as well. I knew I should have trusted my instincts. He was too good to be true. I tried to hold my heart back but he was so persistent that I finally decided I would let myself be vulnerable. The emails and text messages back and forth were every word that I wished a man would say to me. He looked and said exactly what my prince charming would be. I started to get suspicious yesterday when he asked me to purchase him an iTunes card, which I did. He asked for $25 and I got one for $15. He even sent me a video of "him" and a friend singing along to a song. It was so convincing. And even today, now that I have found this site and done a reverse search on the pictures that he sent, I am still having a hard time accepting this revelation. There is still a small part of me that wants to believe he is real. My head says no, but my heart wants that love so badly. I am so mad, ashamed, heart broken and numb. I am thankful that I only invested two weeks into this and that I started to realize something was amiss today when he cancelled the "date" we had scheduled this weekend because he was being "deployed". I am glad to know that I am not the only one out there. I am embarrassed to tell my friends about this because I have always been the one that fell hard and fast and I did it again. I will shed some tears, drink a bottle of wine, eat some fabulous italian food tonight and move on. But damn... this hurts!
You need to immediately go to the bank and CLOSE the compromised account. Scammers could use it to launder the money and since you own the account only you would be responsible for crime. Money laundering is punishable with prison time and you could be send to jail if convicted of offence, so please go to the bank and speak with fraud prevention officer.
You need to call the passport agency or your local police and tell them that your passport copy is in the hands of Nigerian fraudsters and can be used in crime. They will give you best advice what to do.
Please BLOCK scammers once and forever, try to move on. You loved a cyberghost , don't give him another minute of your precious life, keep busy, try not to think about scam. Good luck to you.
Hi TTRT, glad you are recovering. It is truly hard physically and emotionally. They are very good at what they do to fool us big time, and prey on our kindness and trust. The difference is I do wish ill upon them. I went through pure hell for a long long time. More than I talk about here. I have already forgiven them but vengeance is mine says the Lord.Hello everyone,
I have always had some sort of doubts right from very early on and my friend and my mom kept telling me about all these scammers on the news. But I wanted to take a risk. When I realized it could be, yet I believe I wanted that feeling and I was ready to get hurt and lose some if that is what it takes. Yes, stupid as it may sound but I believe everything happens for a reason. I needed to go through it to come out stronger.
It wasn't till an image search and phone number search did I realize he is indeed a scammer like my mom and friend had warned from the start as I also wondered myaelf...like the phrase "When it is too good to be ttue, that could be it". I allowed it, I wanted to walk that path. So in this case, I have only myself to blame.
Anyway, I started doing a lot of research on thia topic and I am so thankful to find thia site as I now need healing. I don't want to take too long to recover either. It is really affected me emotionally and psychologically
I never thought this could happen to me. But I have to give credit that these scammers are extremely food at what they do and this one is respectful, polite and "real". Also gives us hope, real or not I need to thank the acammer who gave me those great feelings during those couple of months. Oh well...it is his career so better he good at what he does.
I would like to thank everyone on sharing their experiences and insights. I am here to heal. I also believe in Karma and these scammers will receive theirs someday but I will never wish I'll upon them as that is it right thing to do. The greatest and most difficult thing to do is To Forgive as it will help with the healing. May this be a learning experience...everyone walks into your life for a reason and everything happens for a reason.
Let us all love each other and heal together.
