As reported by South China Morning Post
"Hong Kong’s love scammers hit on a new way to rake in millions last year by cutting down on the sweet talk while pushing their victims to put money into fake investments, police have warned.
The confidence tricksters raked in HK$85 million (US$11 million) from 181 cases, accounting for a third of all reported investment scams last year.
Nine in 10 victims were women, but the biggest loser was a male piano teacher who told police he was duped out of HK$13.5 million by his “male lover” online."
".......a man in his 40s who met his “male lover” through a dating app last August. The pair never met, but the teacher was lured into starting a trading account after just two weeks of sweet talk.
After reaping HK$6,000 from an early investment of HK$40,000, he went on to sink a total of HK$13.5 million in 16 transactions between August 20 and September 17."
Sounds familiar? Yup, greed & promise of love gets them every time.

There is no money in MT4, the money is already gone, what inside MT4 is just some fake number, it can even do the trading itself. The hope is not that, the hope will be catch those shameless fakersDo not give them any more money. It's like extortion...if you keep paying, they'll keep asking. I know you want and need your money back; I'm in the same situation, but it won't happen and you'll end up feeling worse about yourself. If you still have access to your MT4 account, I would blow all my money on bad investment; this way, they won't get to keep them. Unfortunately, they've cut my access to funds, so the 10k I had, now belong to them.
