The Thai woman transferred money to an account several times, totaling Bt130,000, but she still did not receive the “valuable gifts”.She eventually filed a complaint with the Technology Crime Suppression Division.
All in all, police said the man, who is the alleged leader of the so-call romance scam ring, has deceived more than 30 Thai women who wired his gang over Bt10 million during the past five years.
Chattraporn implicated OJ, saying he hired her to open the bank account and send him the money after the victims wired it in.
Siripong alleged OJ was the leader of the Nigeria 419 romance scam gang that has been preying on Thai women looking for love with western men.
Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. He wanted me to open a new account and he tried to wire money. Pretty soon indicated his company was sending him and 3 others to Syria - he even had a 'ticket' he sent to me showing the time, date etc, city where he was going.
There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. I got a message from a Jessica Brooks Precious on face book. After he 'arrived' if he really is there - he said his kids were headed to Paris on a field trip but because he was in Syria and no funds are sent in to the country and none sent out..asked me if I could send 1000 pounds to a "nanny" in England so the kids could go. I told them to have a good time - that it would be great.
