Another Scam: from Sindy Myers (sindy.myers@yahoo.com)

About June 2011 a lady contacted me on RSVP hey a beautiful blond by the photos anyway.We communicated for a day and she gave me her email, when I went back on rsvp she had gone and when I asked her what happened to her profile she said she deleted it but later on rsvp told me they had flagged her as a scammer (to late). She or he went by the name Sindy Myers (sindy.myers@yahoo.com) a gemstone dealer from Toorak in Melbourne. She said she was going for a contract and if she got it would be overseas for a week. She got the contract and contacted saying she would be in London for a week. I was sure she could not have made it there since the last time we spoke .She had a great story, only child, sick mother, father had left long ago, boyfriend had run off with best friend (alarm bells should have rang already). Anyway when the company supposedly paid her she said she couldn’t cash it there and was out of money and I was the only one she had left (oh sure I am) for help. I sent her money 1850 and she said she would pay me back, anyway she kept communicating for months and sending flight itinerary which I checked and were false. I haven’t heard from her since Nov 2011. I have believed for a long time she was in London Heathrow all the time.
