Facebook surprise: "The war is really bad here - I have to send you a million dollars, is that ok!?"

Picture: Sanook

 

A Thai woman who runs an accessories business told Sanook that she befriended a man on Facebook. 

 

In no time at all he told her that he was in fierce combat in Afghanistan. 

 

Things were really bad with all the fighting and death and the banking system had collapsed. 

 

It was necessary for him to send her 1.5 million US dollars in a cardboard box.

 

Would that be OK?

 

He sent her "proof" in the form of a picture of all the loot in a tatty cardboard box. 

 

All she had to do was transfer some tax to a Krungsri Bank account number.

 

"Just pay 36,000 baht and all will be yours for our future together...darling".

 

A helpful call center person called her to explain what to do so that the 50 million baht would be hers. The package had already arrived, in the name of Alvin Paschal, they explained.

 

When she refused Alvin - her erstwhile Facebook friend - got nasty. 

 

He said he would send the boys round if she didn't comply and they would trash her home and business. 

 

Nuanjan said she had parted with no money and was not worried. But she advised other women not to get sucked in by such scams. 

 

Sanook did not mention if she had contacted the Thai police in this matter.

I was promised the princely sum of  500,000 USD for just a pittance about 20 years ago.

 

Hard to turn down.   🙃

Did you take up the offer?

I know you're solvent but I'm willing to personally pay out of my own pocket to get your spacebar fixed.

A lot of the men in this forum are dating or are married to bar girls who are deceiving them every chance they get. 

 

It’s only news when roll is reversed.

As long as you don't believe in the local "darling love you long time" scams, you are safe.
