According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA), the women said the man introduced himself as Ravi Kumar, a single Airline Pilot residing in Los Angeles, California in the USA.

“He sends out Friend requests to women on Facebook and during a chat on Facebook Messenger, he asks for a contact number. The women are then contacted on WhatsApp using the number +39 3510164225.

RUSA said the prefix [+39] is the International Dialling Code for Italy in Europe.

RUSA added that after chatting to the victims for a few weeks the man requests home addresses so he can send them gifts.

The women were sent images of a box that allegedly contained 15 000 US Dollars (R300 000). The scammer then professes his love, promises to visit South Africa and marry the victims.

RUSA said the man later requests R5000 daily on each occasion explaining that the box packed with gifts and money were being withheld at Customs and he was either stuck at the airport or his bank cards were lost.
