Victim has indicated that this thread is about Sri Lanka

I have just been a victim of a 'Grooming Plot' in Negombo by a local tour guide family trying to gain visas to The West etc and in my case the UK. These people also con women out of money and expensive gifts.
PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH "Anthoniyo Tours and Travels' situated opposite 'The Camelot Beach Hotel' in Lewis Place. (It is a small red shop) I very nearly married the son Anton - after coming back to Sri Lanka 6 times to see him and do voluntary animal work with him.
HE IS VERY DANGEROUS - A USER AND A LIER! AND HAS PREYED ON MANY WESTERN WOMEN / TOURISTS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS - He has targetted women from UK, Germany, Holland, Russia, Sweden etc.
He is only young - 24 years old, but looks and acts older - is DEVIOUS and charming. He is quite good looking and plays on his looks to flirt with and trap usually older women into falling in love with him - He is very clever and this process can be long drawn out - in my case over 2 years! At the same time as me, he has been juggling at least 5 others - to hedge his bets of marriage, visa and to scam money and presents. HE RARELY USES CONDOMS AND TRIES TO GET WOMEN PREGNANT.
His ENTIRE family are all part of this evil ingrained plot.
His full name is Morawage Anton Dilrukshan Fernando - but known as Anton - he has pony tail hair and different styles of beards - usually wears casual western style clothes / sporty / hip hop / rap. His father is called Santha and uncle Harrison.
They both drive flashy Toyota Town Ace minibuses - and usually tout for business outside the shop or outside the opposite hotels. They do airport runs and tours to the sights of Sri Lanka.
PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM THEY ARE AN EVIL, NASTY SET UP... I have only just escaped by the skin of my teeth. Please feel free to get in touch with me for more info or if you also have been a victim. I have just found 3 other women who have also been victims. (2 of us were pregnant by this trickster - and i know there are lots more like us)

Wow,

lucky escape. Ive heard of plots like this when travelling, seems to be a common theme.

In Bali they are called 'Kutu Cowboys', romancing (normally) older Aussie women to get visas.

In the Gambia they are called 'Bumsters'.

Guess you get them all over.

Thanks for the warning.
Have you thought of complaining to the Tourist Police or to the Ceylon Tourist Board. It would be good if you did that as well with all the details.
Let this be an eye opener for others as well.
Cheers

Lilly,
Thanks for posting your warning to others. Travellers fall victim to all kinds of scams while on the road. Being overcharged for goods and services is just a fact of life in Asia. Prices are not posted many times and they charge what you will pay. This just costs us money. What happened to Lilly not opnly cost her money, but emotional pain as well. Having your heart broken and lose trust in others is much worse than losing some money.

I hope many read this warning and remember it when travelling. All of us are more vulnerable when away from home and need to be aware of what is going on around us. Do not leave your common sense at home when you travel.

Lily- good luck to you and i hope you can get over your terrible experience-

One obvious thing I have to comment on for all who may listen is you say he "got you pregnant' and didn't use a condom-- Well that is tragic that you have (?had) an unwanted pregnancy. But this should also be a lesson to all women that they need to take responsibility for themselves-- you could have insisted on condoms- unless he raped you which it doesn't sound like. As a physician I have seen many cases of STDs in travelers who leave a lot of their common sense back home- there are a lot of nasty things, some incurable, that you need to worry about when you have unprotected sex , especially with locals in third world countries.....
