Profile used: David; 39 years old; Architect; Manchester College
Briefly explain what happened during the scam. :
He first asked me for a wechat number at CMB, but I don't have. Instead, he messaged me from Whatsapp.

The key core of his messages:
My name is David cheung, I I was born in XXX but I grew up in Uk, am single work as an architect in my own company.
I live alone here in Uk but my mom lives in XXX. I lost my dad few years ago I do come to see my mom three times in a year because she’s living with an house help and she’s is suffering from leukemia.
I would love to relocate back to XXX but I want to meet a serious woman so I can start a new life with her.

My purpose for contacting you is to see if we can have the opportunity of becoming friends that can grow to maybe the stage of a relationship which can end up in marriage, i Amnot a flirt or into games, i was raised decently by my parents

I usually wake up at 6am, I live the house by 7am to get to the construction site. This is because I am currently supervising a construction project. Normal days when I am working on just designs I can work from home. I am self employed, I registered a construction firm, but I do not have fixed staff only contract staff when I have to handle construction projects. I make use of sub contractors and other artisans.

We didn't chat very often because he claimed to be busy because of the nature of his work. I googled around and found the above similar scams so I believe that he is a scam.

You are correct he is a scammer, abusing stolen photos. Stop! all contact with him. Do not reply to any of his messages.
Do you have an email address for him?
