Scammers abusing stolen photos of Etienne Grech

Unread postby Chester » Mon Jul 27, 2015 9:20 pm

split from viewtopic.php?f=11&t=34352, where the email address is reported for being used with a different set of stolen pictures.

I was searching photo's which a facebookfriend Bran Darson (not real name, now Darsun Bran) used and sent me.
He is a scammer and I sent also his/your pictures to pigbusters so other people are warned. You can find it there with his email adress what is still current: darsonbranconsultant@gmail.com.
I found him also on FB under the name of Samuel Robinson. I found 4 pictures here: http:/ /forascammer.blogspot.nl/2013_04_10_archive.html
In January I went to the police ,for a report because I gave a lot of money for a loan, for a short time but he doesnt know when he can pay back. (first 16/10/14, then 22/12/14) I wrote to the bank in Maleisia, embassy, police there, in UK, actionfraud, crimestoppers, my own bank, and all without results.
He came in as a christian and we chatted on messenger. He told me of his wife she had cancer and died and he cares for his three sons, the twins and the younger brother. He had a friend who died, and he cares also for his children.
He called his friend Abel and Brown. He was his best friend and partner in business, and after his death he went alone in Vietnam for a contract.
The drillmachine was broken and he needed money to go on with the work otherwise he losed the contract. I asked some FB friends Jim Holmes and Paul Friedman; he must be them because on one day they were gone both. I booked some, but later he asked for more and I did, there came more problems. See his chat after the payment.

Chester,

Being scammed is an unpleasant experience. It may be hard for local authorities to help you recovering the money you lost. Nothing the scammer was telling you is real - everything are just lies. If you sent him money using a wireless transfer system, those money are lost. The only thing you can do now is to try and minimize the damages the scammer left behind.

You have a pm (private message). Please read it and try to reply to it.
Help yourself by helping others - report your scammer here.
Google can be your best friend;use it if you have doubts about someone met online. If someone met online only asks for money, no matter what reason, it´s 100% scam.

Posted on behalf of the victim:

I came across the scam survivors page while researching the phone number of this man (4133084388) that I met on Tinder and have been talking to for around 10 days. He told me his name was Robert Mick and that he was in his fifties and all other details were the same as it was in the post. "Robert" said he was in a rig and had very bad service, therefore he was unable to call or facetime me. He immediately asked to change to talking on Whatsapp. We began talking and he started showing love quite early on. I sent him some personal photos throughout this time. He also asked me to help him forward some emails to a steel materials company, in which he indicated he needed those supplies for his rig. Two weeks later, he asked me to help him with a favor, where he gave me his account details and asked me to transfer funds to the company that was supplying his materials (the same person that I have been helping him forward emails to). This is when I got suspicious and began searching online if this situation is a scam. So i searched up: someone asked me to use their account to transfer money. The internet said this was most likely a scam. Then I came across this post on your site
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=75702 in which the girl had the same experience as me. Immediately I told him I cannot help him transfer money and then I blocked him. I thought everything would be okay until I received an email and some texts from him with another number. I am not sure what to do now (...). I did not add him on any social media platforms and only contacted through WhatsApp. So he knows my phone number and my email address and also the name of the company I work at. I feel like they also stole the details of this company as I Googled the company and their webpage states that some people have been using their details to commit scams. I am so glad that I came across that post on the scam survivors website so I was able to stop contacting this person before I helped him make any payments. However, now he is saying that I am trying to steal his money.
I hope no one else will fall for this scam.

company said we will pay

Message received after the targeted victim cut the communication:

Babe all i ever wanted was to be in your heart, and for us to be together, and never be apart, when you
are sad, i will dry your tears, when you are scared, i will comfort your fears, no one else in the world
can ever compare, you are perfect and so is this love that we share my sweetheart. It hurts me that you
have to leave me this way after all we shared. You gave me your body, soul and everything, I love
your body and heart. You are so beautiful and clean. I watch the beautiful videos of yourself you sent
to me and I smile every minute. I built my love and hope around you. We planned our lives and how
our family will be. I risked all I have laboured for in this life to you and gave you access to my life
savings and you stopped contacting me. You blocked me just because of money babe. You know deep
down inside your heart if you ask me to assist you with money I will do so babe, why did you block
me when I needed you the most. I know you might be afraid but trust me, I’m not bad at you yet. I
want my babe back to me. I want the love of my life back. You gave me new hope and reasons to love
again. I do not care about the money, I only care about you and the beautiful family we both will be
build together. Naomi asked me about you. I have to lie to her that you are good and soon will meet
her and she was very happy. I don’t want to break her heart, because I don’t want her to hate you.
Babe, I love you please come back to me we can talk about it together and find solution together babe
ok.

Re: Scammers abusing stolen photos of Etienne Grech

Unread postby catlover » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:04 pm

I met Etienne Grech on Tinder somewhere in July 2019. He was on tinder by the name Fahz. He told me his name was Fazil Iman Amin and that he was residing in Washington DC. He told me that his was was passed in a car accident 7 years ago and that he has a son age 9 by the name of Jamie. He even told me that he was a Muslim and that he was a businessman selling gold bars. We communicated everyday for more than 1 month and he even spent so much time in a day either talking to me or whatsapping. We did skyped once because he wanted me to trust him that he was really the guy in the photo on Tinder profile. He told me that he was coming to see me and even posted to me his air ticket. He was so romantic and promised me to get married and to start a family with me. Few days before he was supposed to come to my country he was telling me that he had to go to Vancouver for a bussiness meeting and will fly from Vancouver to my country straight. Before he was heading to the airport, he was telling me that he need to go to the atm to withdraw some money. I started to feel weird on why he was telling me that. After that he was quiet for few hours. Around 1am my time i received a phone call from his number but he claimed to be a doctor from a hospital in Vancouver. He told me that Fahz was been attacked at the atm and he was unconcious and badly injured. The doctor told me not to be panicked and that he will call me again to update me on Fahz condition. I was so worried and checked with various hospitals in Vancouver but none with his name. The next morning i found out through my own investigation that the guy real name was not Fazil Amin but Dr Etienne Grech from Malta. He called me the next day but i did not answer the call. I told him that i knew who he was. He then blocked me on whatsapp. I am very sure that guy was indeed Dr Etienne Grech because i skyped with him before and i remember very well how he looked like on skype.
