Other Comments: This scammer approached the intended victim on a dating site - Exclusively Christian Singles Australia. This was a lengthy romance scam using pics not found on google image search and tin eye. The concoted story was about being an Australian artist and business woman in her mid 30's procuring art pieces in Kuala Lumpur for a Brisbane art gallery.. The romance scam ran for about a week, then came the usual shock crisis event of a street mugging and loss of all money and id's etc etc. I advised to go visit the British embassy of which she says she is a citizen of, but refused to do so. I said call your travel insurance and bank for help and advice - again refused to do so. Also refused to have any video / audio conversations prior to the crisis event and was then requesting AUD$700 for supposed accommodation expenses. The intelligent nature of and background lead up story of the scam was pretty good until the crisis event.. however the usual red flags of refusal to talk face to face on video applied. At this time of the supposed crisis event the scammer seemed to become desperate and irrational in their request and would not take the normal and usual advice given to someone who has been mugged when over seas. They quickly became hostile when their sincerity was challenged and they abandoned the conversation and chat once they realised they could not fool the intended victim
