Man loses £130,000 in online scam

Okay, you’re a nice bloke, you decide to help out someone you’ve met online, fair enough.

You then get emails from some “FBI agents” telling you that you’ve been scammed, but it’s okay because they’ll investigate it if you’ll pay their expenses.

And you do.

All in all you cough up £130,000.

At what point did it occur to you that, just maybe, something wasn’t right?
