Split from viewtopic.php?f=17&t=40833&start=10, where the fake site used in scam - arapturkbankasi.online - was reported.

Posted on behalf of the targeted victim:

An acquaintance named Happy James Ryan put an account of his work contract in Ankara-Turkey to my name as a beneficiary in March 2018. The money, according to him, corresponded to the payment of his work as a pump contractor for oil platforms.
At the beginning he said that he was going to deposit money to my account in my country and he asked me for my documents, something that I sent him because he had the confidence because he wanted to come and meet me personally to marry me. After that I was surprised when he told me that the bank in question preferred to put the money to my account and that the transfers could be made online. I kept trusting until the transfers could supposedly be made but I held on when they asked $5,000.00 for the International Monetary Fund clearance. I told James that I did not have that money and that it was preferable that he put his money in his name. He got upset because he said he did not have it and what he was going to do now. I told him to solve his problem with the bank because that is his money. I told him that he would prefer that he not write to me anymore.

Undoubtedly James Ryan is an accomplice to the scammers. They ask for friendship via Facebook and they make friends for many months until they get involved with the person. They promise many things.

xxx Look, you may not understand but the time as come to put an end to our short story. you are not nice to me. I was caring and needed a future with you.
But yet, I think that I expected too much of this relationship, which, as you may remember, started by accident., don’t get me wrong, but if things are not working out, I think the best thing to do is to put an end to it instead of trying to keep up something which has no future.
On my part, you should take full responsibility for this failure, after all, I expected too many things from you and I thought I could give more than I actually can. I honestly hope that, soon, very soon, you will find someone you think is better than me.
A kiss from me, and I hope you’ll be very happy because you break my heart.

i thank you for all you have caused me...
