Scam Description

I met this person in a restaurant with friends. He talked his boat and then we exchanged numbers we started dating and then he began to tell me about his business and school. How he wanted to train me as a Fiber Optic Technician so I could make more money and I asked about my son and he stated he would train him too. How he wanted to see our people advance in this technology and make better money and be successful. I paid for the schooling and he was training us. He guaranteed job placement. At the end the certification he presented had no raised seal nor signature it looked like it was homemade. When I questioned him he never responded and just left. He also had blocked my number. I then checked for the accreditation through the department of education and I checked through bbb and there was none. I’m suing for my money back.
