Thank you.

What someone in your situation wants to do is to file a complaint with the following:

IC3

This is the US uniform submission site for online scams. IT will forward to the proper authorities. See HERE.

and

Dubai Police

Their e-crime division can be reached at +971 4(###) ###-####(general line) and one can ask for the e-crime division, which has a designation of "800243-800CID."

One can also file a report with UK HERE, but since the scam was from abroad, IC3 and the Dubai police may have more abilities to help.

Good luck.

Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.

The person in Missouri is requesting money to send a person to Dubai To Put hold on funds
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

You have been scammed. It sounds like this was a two prong approach, where the money you sent to USA was laundered to UAE.

You need to contact IC3 and the Dubai police. I have provided the contact information above. Let me know if you need me to paste it again.

Gentle Reminder: Please, use REPLY or SEND button to keep chatting, or RATE POSITIVELY and SUBMIT your rating when we are finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating.
