Young son being abused

Unread postby chiaraob10 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:32 pm

My 21 years old son is disabled and victim of a romance scam. I have submitted several reports to the FBI, complete of gift cards list redemption dates and user names. Nothing has been done. I cry watching my son thinking someone is loving him and one day will come to visit him. He is being bullied and emotionally abused. I cant take this any more.

My 21 year old son is disabled and being abused by a 419 scammer on Google Hangout. The scammer name is Sarah Bell and has been doing this for almost a year. My son has schizophrenia and is unable to understand the obvious..I'm a very concerned mother. This is emotionally damaging , he has been bullied into giving gift cards on kik and Google Hangout. I have filed several reports with FBI but with no results. I need help in catching this scammer. I have to help my son.

It's very hard playing the middleman in a Romance scam situation. The first thing is to not give him any money. If something needs paid to keep a roof over his head or the lights turned on, pay it directly. Do not give the money to him as he will just send it to the scammer instead.

Don't pay for whatever service he's using to contact the scammer. (Phone, Internet)

Beyond that, there is little you can do as long as he's in denial.

The other Mods or Admins may have some ideas too.

The situation will not be solved until all contact with the scammer is broken completely.

What may help is to get his psychiatrist, social worker, others responsible for his care involved.
It would help to remove his cell phone and any PC and stop his access to them for good. The internet is not a good place for someone with mental disabilities.
Possible involuntary commitment to a mental health facility to break the scammer's brainwashing of him might be needed, and will take strength by the family to do it. But when he is hurting himself by sending money he needs to a man impersonating a woman and does not realize it nor accept it, it might be necessary to save him from more hurt.
He has been put into a highly delusional and self-destructive state by the scammer and he needs professional help at this point.
If anyone asks you for money on the Internet they are always a scammer, 100% of the time.
