Hello there. I am new to this board but I am looking for some help and advice. My mother has recently married a 36 year old Romanian man (she is 61). They met online through a virtual game last year, met once when she went over and then he came over here for a week and they got married around Sept time. He is still over in Romania. My worries -
1. He has 24 friends on facebook all of whom have pictures from this game.
2. He got her to send him £4000 last summer for dental work.
3. He was supposed to move here at Christmas, then it was the start of January, then she never heard from him for 3 weeks and all of a sudden (at pay day) he started chatting to her again and she has been over to the post office again to send him money (she goes to the post office quite often to send him money).
4. He says his family are in Italy, she hasn't ever met any of them despite being in Romania for a week.
5. His age.
I just think it all sounds rather dodgy and he has told her that he has 2 houses, why does he need the money then? My mother is lonely (doesn't take much to do with her 4 children, her doing), this is her 4th marriage so she is looking for love (3rd was to an American). I have never heard of people actually getting married with any of these romance scams so not sure what to think. Gut feeling is telling me he is a complete scam.
Advice welcome please!!
