Best Romance Scam Victim Ever


After a wild and intimidating trip to Malaysia where Becky Shawver met a retired CIA agent and learned that she was dangerously close to becoming yet another death statistic all because she made this trip to help a “friend”, she decided to take that CIA agent’s suggestion to write about her experiences.   It took nearly 1 ½ years more until her main scammer told her that she had been a great victim, an angel even, before she finally “woke up” to the reality that he was not her friend, and she was never going to get her retirement funds back like he’d been promising this entire time. This scam crossed international waters bringing the CIA into this harsh reality, along with the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service.  Her story is told through the voice of Heather and the text messages and emails she shared with the various people she came in contact with.

This scam story is like no other.
