        Oh my god, I got scammed by the same guy yesterday! He was from Ireland and told me he needed cash for the ferry tickets for him and his family because he lost his bag with all his money and his papers. He said he'd transfer it immediately which I watched him do and I gave him 400 euros. I got his Whatsapp number but he doesn't reply. Through your report I realized that I have been scammed, thank you!
        Do you remember where you got scammed? I wonder if he just uses the same spot. And could you get any of your money back?

        Wow it's crazy, yes it's the same guy. He approached me at a rest stop near Cologne in Germany, he also had a 14(ish)-year-old boy with him. Apparently they are just road-tripping and financing their travel cost through this I guess? I called the rest stop but they hadn't seen him or heard similar stories.
        Did you go to the police with this?

        It's really a disaster that this guy is still doing this. We had the same today at the motorway rest station Hardtwald West near Heidelberg/ Germany. He (together with two boys) pretended to be a Scottish fan coming from the EM soccer games and was stollen his backpack, incl. credit cards, Eurotunnel tickets etc. He asked in such a special manner for 370 Pounds (EUR 440) that we unbelievably gave it to him, something we normally would never do. He responded on his mobile number. I will contact the police now. Somehow this guy needs to be stopped!

        ...to add: he showed me on his mobile an Barclays App and then bank transfer information. His name on these apps was also "Martin Maughan"...

        I was ripped off by the same guy today. The number & the photo match. Autohof Bensheim on the A5. 400€ for the ferry to Scotland. His rucksack was stolen and all his tickets were blocked. His son was also there. Saw that he made a "bank transfer", money will probably never arrive. I have reported it to the police.

        Autohof Bensheim on the A5. A scotish man with his son asked for 400€ for the ferry to Scotland. His backpack was stolen and all his tickets were blocked. Saw that he made a "bank transfer", money will probably never arrive. I have reported it to the police.
        -------------------
        He talked about his trip to Germany with his son. He had forgotten his rucksack in a restaurant two hours ago & then it was no longer there. He needed money to get the ferry from Calais to the UK. Cards were blocked, transfers still work. Withdrew 400€ for him. He has made a cell phone "transfer" for 400 pounds. Money does not arrive. No answer to the phone number. The number was correct, I called him directly on the spot and the call was put through. A report was made to the police.
