I have met a gentleman from instagram who says he is a surgeon in Syria on peacekeeping. He is a widower with a 15 teen year son in New Zealand at boarding school. I sent $89 for the boys meals at school. And $210 for testing materials. The boy and his teacher were in a car accident and I have sent $500 for treatment and 700 for operation. Now he wants me to st. $2500 for blood. I don't want to send the $2500 but I am concerned about the hour. The gentleman I have been chatting with says he can't get to his money. He does not hac a way to sisal to the doctor himself. Communication has been between myself and the teachers daught through the 15 year old boys phone. How do I know if this is a scam and that there is not a 15 year boy really hurt
I have only started talking to the gentleman a month ago.

Yes, it is a scam.
Our recommendation is that you stop all contact with the scammer.
Do not tell them you know they are a scammer.
Do not send them to our Scam Warning website.
since you have already sent them money then you need to be especially careful
of new contacts from people you do not know as they will try to scam you
again and again.
You should also file a police report.
There is even a scam that claims they have caught your scammer and want to
help you get your stolen money back.
If you sent money by Bank transfer you should contact your bank and get your account number changed.
