A Sixty-Eight Year Old Male Posed as a Rich Man, Scammed Three Cougars

Wow, are you STUPID, or, are you just, S-T-U-P-I-D???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Yeh, proclaimed himself as the CEO of a company, in the fast-food restaurants, coffee shops, started enticing the population of divorced women from China, to seduce the ladies, to fall into the traps of love, then, used the name of making investments to borrow money from them, in two short years, he’d managed to scam over ten million dollars from three divorcees.  The police followed the leads, and caught him, and when he was arrested, he told them that he was set up.

The Taipei City Detective Squad pointed out, that Yeh (age 68) printed the “Thai-Asian Dual Star International Development Agency” CEO business cards, it’d made the ladies really believed that he was the man in charge of the developments next to the Taipei Main Station; Yeh found that many Chinese married woman after they’d gotten their national identification cards are mostly divorced or widows, they’d become lonely, and so, he’d falsified his image as a rich man, and zoomed in on those divorced or widowed women to scam them for money, using love as an excuse.

In the past two years, Yeh had utilized the fast-food restaurants in Taipei, the coffee shops, the super convenience shops, to connect with Wang, Chang, along with one other divorced Chinese women.  First, Yeh would take out the business card to trick them, painted a picture of him, as well-knowledged, well-connected individual, then, he’d asked them out and pursued them endlessly, stated that he wanted to marry them, and have babies with them, and would give them residences at highly priced districts too.

Wang, Chang, along with another Chinese spouse thought that they’d found the second love of their lives, after they’d invested their emotions, Yeh would tell the ladies, that his business had monetary difficulties that he needed the cash flow, to convince the women to make an investment, then, he’d taken out the checkbooks, to prove that he had the intentions of marrying all of them, Yeh was able to scam over a hundred thousand dollars total.

The police found, that Yeh is staying with his childhood sweetheart, Yu’s house, they’re both from Mazu, and are very close to each other; but Yeh had also used the excused that he needed some cash to make his business work, to persuade Yu to transfer the deeds to two of her government issued housing to Yeh’s wife to get a loan from the banks.  Yu didn’t get a single cent in return, and, her house became someone else’s.

The police got her call, and traced the leads, and found out where Yeh was hiding, and, when they took him, he’d claimed, that there’s only the business transaction of lending the money, that there was NO intentions of fraud; he’d claimed that he really IS the CEO of the Gemini Development Agencies, it’s just that he had yet to set up his company, that it was still in the planning stages.

And, see how those ladies fall so easily for that OLDEST trick in the book?  It’s all because they’re too desperate for love, too desperate to find someone that they can spend the rest of their lives with, and it’s EXACTLY this need for love that’s made them much MORE gullible, and easily tricked.

Claiming to be an Ex-C.I.A. Director, Scammed for $40,000 U.S.D., and the Woman Was Sued for Fraud

First of all, I gotta say: pardon the “French”, but, are you FUCKING kidding me, translated…

A woman with a physics doctorate, Liu, met a man who claimed to be the director of the C.I.A., David Pedros, the man told her he was going to hire a army pilot to come to Taiwan to marry her, asked her to wire-transfer $40,000, he also mailed her seven forged traveler’s checks, said that she could use it for the expenses on the wedding, causing her to get sued.

Liu was accused of forgery of bonds, when the Taipei District Court was in session, she stated that she’d used Skype video cam, to make sure that the documents were authentic, that she had one hundred reasons to believe that “David” was indeed, in charge of the C.I.A., that, was why she’d agreed to marrying him, that was also why she’d rushed to the banks, to get her traveler’s checks.  The D.A. believed that she had fallen prey to his scams because of love, they chose NOT to persecute her further.

Liu has a physic’s doctorate from Florida State University, had worked as an engineer for a semiconductor company here, in the Scientific Park in Hsinchu.

Liu did NOT turn on her cell phone, the guards said that she’d left her home early in the morning.  She’d left on her Facebook on April 24th, that “Everybody come to me to U.S., and get a picture with Tea Rice (what she called “David””, seems like she trusted the man completely, and expecting to see her boyfriend.

Last May, Liu used Skype videocam, realized that there was a friendship invite from abroad, the other individual claimed to be “the sergeant who got rid of the terrorists in Afghanistan and Libya, name was David; that after he’d returned home from capturing Gadafi, he is to be named the chief of C.I.A., and that he’s planning a divorce with his wife, wanting to date Liu.

Liu said that she cross-checked his references, found an online video of David, attending the hearing, started to believe that this, was real.  One time she was driving with the radio on, she’d heard the Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton said, “keep it covered, don’t go public”, believed that it was a sign for her, so, she decided to see him.

After David had proposed to her, she wire-transferred forty-thousand dollars to the States to help David with the wedding plans; David told her he wanted to hire an army jet to come to Taiwan to pick her up, and, because it wouldn’t be cheap, he wanted her to help exchange the money to the money to take over Libya, to use it as an expense.

Liu received a total of thirty-seven, each with five hundred Euros worth of traveler’s checks, went to the bank to cash it, only to be told that it was fake, and, she not only didn’t get picked up by the army jet, she also landed in jail.  After the whole thing blew open, Liu even showed the wedding ring that David had mailed her, proving, that “My love is real!”

How desperate can a woman get?  Are you freakin’ kidding me, I mean, at least, don’t be that desperate, to jump at every single man, who CLAIMED to be well-educated AND available, because you don’t know if they actually are?  And, on top of that, this woman lost a TON of money on this scam artist, and, this woman has a doctorate too, but, apparently, she’d let love go to her head in this…
