I'd like some advice.

Last summer I met a guy who had just moved into the town where i live. He seemed really nice and after a month or so of dating he asked me if he could borrow some money, giving a long winded sob story first, I believed him and lent him some money. shortly after he disappeared for a week then reappeared tellingme how he had messed his life up and he was homeless. After speaking to his friend who also believed him I allowed him to stay and we ended up living together for a year. all sounds good except that during this time he ran up huge bills on my catalougue accounts, hid bills from me saying he had paid them when he hadn't, although somehow he managed to pay off his debts. We had a row recently and split up. He promised he would pay me back for all the debts he had accrued in my name, surprisingly i have not seen a penny since I got several excuses before just being ignored. I'm not sure what I can do if anything and would like a little advice please

First, please don't feel stupid. The scammers are good and this is what they do every day.

Second, I would like you to contact Donna at LoveFraud.com and tell her that Shawn from ScamVictimsUnited.com sent you her way.

Let me know if there is anything she cannot answer and you need more help from me.
