Helda Elyani from Balikpapan (Region: Kalimantan timur) Indonesia

Name: Helda Elyani

Update 12 March 2011: This scammer is active on several asian datings sites, and she is so original to write on her profiles that she never has scammed somebody, but certainly the copy of her passport that is stored on our secured server proves that she lie. Also why you should change many times in week, even twice a day, your photos on those profiles if you has nothing to worry about?

Update 5 October 2012: We got some reports that this scammer are active again on asian dating sites.

Update 3 December 2013: Photos of this scammer updated

Update 14 December 2013: We seems again many activity of this scammer, WATCH OUT!.

Website(s) used:,,, (1), (2),,, Google+,,

Description: She contacted me through an Asian dating site about her interest in me, we started our communication, where after we continued on Yahoo Messenger. After 2 months of our communication i asked her to marry with me Halal and to get the Nikah, she agreed, so i prepared all for our marriage there in Indonesia as how Helda wanted. I bought flight tickets to Indonesia, Helda and i agreed that we should stay at home of one friend of her. But four days before my departure to Jakarta, she wrote me that her brother, not wanted that we such quickly marry and he wanted that i first came for meet her only and to buy house. Because i already had the flight tickets i was forced to agree. When i arrived there, i didn’t get any sign of Helda, so i called her by phone, she told me that her brother was waiting and will take me to Balikpapan. Then he called me to my phone saying that he was waiing at the information desk. When i have meet him at the airport, he told me that i can only stay 2 weeks no more, i told him that i have a month flight ticket, he say that he will change the date for me, after we got into the car and bring me to Balikpapan. When we arrived there i meet Helda and we began talk about us. On the next days Helda’s brother took a friend who knows about real estate, so we began to look houses for our future, where we should live… but the days passed away and was nothing that really was attracting me to buy. Because Helda’s brother told me that i can only stay 2 weeks, and the time was running out, we finally found a house, with a nice garden, not far from Helda’s friend house. Helda took her documents such as passport and other… and i my passport,we make some copies of our documents and then her brother told me to put Helda Elyani as owner of the house so that she will pay much more less tax then i as foreigner. So stupid as i was, i believed them in the name of the Islam, and put in the documents Helda Elyani as the owner of the house. After my departute from Jakarta, Helda asked me to return as soon as possible to Indonesia. When i was back at home, i saw on YM that Helda blocked me, also sending emails was not possible, also she didnt pick up my phone calls… When i did a try on google i found out that Helda was again active on several asian dating sites, when i asked her for explanation she only answered that wasn’t she.Then i know that i was been scammed by Helda and its “brother”. I tried a lawsuit against her, but that country is a big corruption that was impossible to get back my money. One thing i was making good to take a copy of Helda’s passport. Be aware with this very ingenious and original scammers. So original that you will believe her.
