"I met a man on the internet who claimed to love me, yes i was duped in what they call a 'romance scam', well he started off with sweet talks about how he wants us to spend the rest of our lives together, that was all i wanted at the time, i did not know i was slowly walking into a trap, we were together for 3 months, on the internet of course when he told me that her mom had to go on a surgery and that she did not have insurance, out of the love i had or thought i had for him, i did not think twice before sending the first $20,000. A week later he told me they needed more money as she had complications, i sent $50,000, it was not up to 4 days that he asked me for money again, i then asked for the address of the hospital as i would love to come visiting. He started shrugging off that idea of coming over but kept asking for money, so i told him that if he does not want me to come over, i wont be sending anymore money. To my greatest surprise, he blocked me and i could not reach him anywhere. i was heart broken and duped at the same time. It took me a while to come to terms with the fact that he was a scammer. Anyways, i had the receipt and the account details that the wire was sent out to, and i sent all information needed to charge it backs and they recovered most of my money in less than a week."
