Long story short, he stated that he had a hospital project at New Zealand for 3 weeks and will come to my country this end of September, already sent me the E-ticket booking from Air New Zealand. He sent his belongings which is his summer outfit from GUCCI to me. I already suggest him not to sent it, but he insisted, so I gave my address. He sent me the proof of delivery and I've got an email from the Fairway Express Couriers and requested me to pay GBP 295 to someone in Malaysia using Western Union for clearance fee. I checked with google, lot of scam of the Fairway in the internet, started to suspicious also why a courier using Western Union personal account?? Checked by email to Royal Oldham Hospital's assistant of the Gyneacologyst section, no Dr. Evan Rodriguez exist as doctor there; checked to Air New Zealand about the booking number which is invalid; and checked Fairway Express Couriers, they told me to not send money, it's a scam because Fairway Express Couriers DID NOT HAVE international services. DANG!! Eventough I'm not lose money to him, but I cried few days, not only "WHY DID HE DO THIS TO ME?" but also "HOW COME I BECOME SO STUPID?" Grrrrrrr...
I guess it's kinda my fault to ignore these things at first, but these are the Red Flags Alert:
1. When I asked about childhood photos at BBM (08-Aug-2012), he sent out 4 photos to me. One of it has a "DAMANSARA" as a part of the file's name. FYI, if we took photos with BB, and hit a special button, it can show the location of the photo taken. I've already ask him about this DAMANSARA thing which is an area located in MALAYSIA. He said he don't know about Damansara thing and stated that the photos even not taken with his phone.
2. Before I reply for his message in Facebook, I've arrange a background check for him. And I didn't find doctor named like him in the consultant/doctor database in internet. I just make my own excuse for him, maybe those list didn't really update. Or maybe he is a medical director, so didn't list there. This was my biggest mistake!
I guess this scammers kinda smart one, he was very good at calculating and predicting time.
Example: Our 5 hours time different, he know when to open my BBM, as if he just wake up in the morning at UK.
Or when he said he flown to New Zealand, he know the right time to activate his BB, as if he just landed in the NZ airport.
Also I have a suspicion that this scammers were located in Malaysia (DAMANSARA thing and Western Union to Malaysia), not an Nigerian, because I talked to him it was "like" a latin accent (or I've been mistaken??)
