Report N1 (added on September, 30, 2011)

First met this person on ukdatinggroup, she had no profile picture and she winked at me first. She wanted to email me her pictures so i said ok, i emailed her some more pictures of me. She wanted to chat further on yahoo messenger so i did. We chatted every night for about a month, she was concerned i was talking to other women on the site so i cancelled my subscription to the dating site.
We had arranged to meet, I booked her on a flight to aberdeen and she was happy with that. The week before we were to meet she said her car had been impounded and needed help to pay the 1500 fee to have the car released before it was crushed so i stupidly paid it. Before i knew where i was i had given her 2500 to pay various bills, she never turned up to meet me, making up some excuse she had been in an argument and gotten arrested that weekend. I have called and texted to have my money sent back but to no success. I have talked to the police but they say as i willingly gave this person money it is not technically fraud, of course i know it is a scam now but there is no hard evidence the person is not who they say they are. I do not usually fall for scams but this person was so skilled at talking to me and twisting me over the weeks i was completely taken in by it, this person(s) are obviously professionals who have done it before and will do it again. I believe it is a man and a woman doing this scam as i have spoken to both a man and a woman on the above numbers, both with london accents. I also still have a card which the person sent to me.
