Scam Description

This was a romance scam, took the identity of a local man in my community. He said he needed temporary help on a business deal. He had many photos of the man he claimed to be and I believed he lived 5 minutes from me. Not to say this is the company who scammed me, it was a man. This is the company name the scammer had me send $102,000.00 to. They had accounts at Wells Fargo and Bank of the West. I cannot get my money back because I don’t know who the scammer actually is as he is using another mans identity. It was in 2 checks, one $52,000.00 sent to Royalty Family, LLC from Wells Fargo and one $50,000.00 to Royalty Family LLC to a Bank of the West account. Neither bank would speak to me. I need to get my money back as it was my entire savings.
