An instagram scammer attempted to rip people off using the stolen identification of “Yuri Sincero”. She managed to get money from someone and attempted to scam someone else. The name she used to retrieve the money was Denise Manlutac at 156 Brgy. Balibago 1st, Tarlac City, Tarlac, Philippines. If this person tries to get money from you, don’t do it.
Me and my husband were browsing through websites on flippa. We were planning to buy a cooking site as a new website but did not want to build all the information from scatch. As we were browsing, we found a cooking site for sale that is under bidding. We contacted the seller and ask for how much is the final price he is asking for his website. It sounded like a great deal for us and we were interested in buying. However, the website or hosting service had a pop up that looked like malware. The popup would not allow you to get out of the website without shutting down the browser. We told the seller about this malicious popup. He insisted that it was the hosting service. We tried to go there many times to scan the articles if any of it is original. Not that there is no unique content and all copied, but everytime we attempted of browsing the website the pop up and at one point we had to restart the computer. Needless to say we did not buy the website.

You contact them via their ad and then they tell you that you are accepted! All you need to do is fill out the documents and send them the security deposit. There are a couple of issues with this: It is a scam.
How can you tell? There are a couple of ways to verify that it is a scam:

“I’m out of the country and need you to wire me the deposit.”
How the scam works: You find a great rental (it’s usually too good to be true), but the landlord is located out of state or out of the country. They’ll rent it to you and mail you the keys if you just send a deposit.
Tip: Don’t wire money to anyone you haven’t met in person. If it looks like a great deal and is too good to be true, it’s likely a scam. You will lose your money, and the place you were looking at isn’t really even on the market.
Jason & Lea the Romance
A year ago, I wrote fiance visa process and made videos in youtube. A filipino man named Jason (not real name) who is currently working in Saudi Arabia as an engineer contacted me just yesterday (June 03,2015). He just recently met a US citizen filipino women Lea who claims that she is a doctor working in Syria. She said that it is part of her medical practice. She is also saying that she wants to marry and him so that she can leave her job in Syria. Jason thought it is okay because he is single, ready and willing to marry.
anti-romance scam tip #1: It is not uncommon to meet an American Citizen who is abroad (many US military people are abroad) however, take your time getting to know them. Do not rush into a romance.
The fiance Visa Set Up
Jason told Lea that he would rather marry in the Philippines as it is more formal to meet the family first then marry. And so if she could go there it would be better because he prefer a CR1 visa as well. Lea keeps making alibis saying that a fiance visa is faster because it only takes 5 months to process it. She also said that she will need 10 gifts to prove that the relationship and a diamond ring which she sent a picture of to Jason. Lea also demanded of a Samsung 6 as a first gift. Jason asked her if they could meet first since they are talking of getting a fiance visa. She said that it is not necessary yet. She wanted to do the fiance visa first. Get the NOA 1 and NOA 2 before they meet. He had been asking if they could talk on the phone. Lea reasoned out that she does not have a phone. It is not allowed in Syria. She also said that she does not have a facebook or skype but only email.
anti-romance scam tip #2: ALWAYS, make sure you SEE your lover via cam. DO NOT accept alibis on why they cannot do cam. There is always a way and if they are as serious about you as your are about them, they will find a way to do cam to cam with you.
anti-romance scam tip #3: In a US fiance visa petition, you cannot petition your foreign fiance if you have not met in person. A main proof USCIS for a fiance visa is a proof of your meeting such as photos together, flight ticket, hotel room booking and an engagement ring. However, it is not a must to have an engagement ring.
Basically, this is purely a scam. So cautious of who you become serious withDO not be fooled with just the beautiful photos. They may not be what you think they are. Always ask to see them live on skype or any kind of video chat. That is the most guaranteed way to know the person on the other line.
