This is the story where I pretend like I know the guy. If you haven't read it, please do.
Well my co work who works for the cyber security department said I should forward this story to the FBI. So I did. I mailed the conversation to the local office. Mentioned my friends name and where we work.
Yesterday I got an email from a lady from the FBI (who also knows my wo worker). Here is the email I got.
It was refreshing to be provided information regarding romance scams where NO money was lost! It's also great you take the extra step to notify the banks because they'll review and even close down accounts if they suspect fraud. It wouldn't hurt to notify the dating website of the profile requesting money as well. Let me know if you have any questions and please tell Theresa I say hello.
This was nice to hear to back from them. I saved her email and in the future if anymore scammers share info I will forward it to her.
REMEMBER: DON'T SEND MONEY TO SOMEONE YOU DON'T KNOW!!
THEY DON'T LOVE YOU!! THEY LOVE YOUR MONEY!!!!
