Faking it — scammers’ tricks to steal your heart and money

Share this page

Image of cupid and heartNot everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? They’re looking to steal your money.

As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims. After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account. The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime.  

Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. They ask you to:

  • chat off of the dating site immediately, using personal email, text, or phone
  • wire money using Western Union or Money Gram
  • set up a new bank account

Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.

Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason. If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.

Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at ftc.gov/complaint — click on Scams and Rip-Offs, then select Romance Scams.

Well ladies I’m one of the suckers! My guy has been talking to me for 3 months. He is from Oakland, CA, but he has been in Istanbul on an oil rig for over a month. We have all of the sweet romantic conversations as the rest of you. He friend requested me on Messenger and why I accepted I will never know. His name is Jimmie Walter. He is getting a divorce and he has a 14 year daughter. He asked for a IPhone X after I told him I wanted to get him something for his birthday. I never sent it because I fell ill and was unable to do so. He has continued talking to me and now wants to send a package of his to my address. He says he is coming home soon and wants to meet me in CA. I a pretty intelligent woman and he almost convinced he is real. He sent a passport and a drivers license with the number covered. I have done extensive searches and have not found him in the US. I have figured out that he is a scammer and I want all you ladies out there to wise up like I have. If the guy is a contractor, in the military, has broken language, speaks brogue English, works in another country, and wants to get romantic immediately he is a SCAMMER! We are too smart to be scammed, so block them and delete anything they’ve sent you. Women United.

Oh my, my story is similar to all of you posting here. My I was talking to Richie Lambert, 55 on July 29. Born in Italy, now living in Virgina. Claims to be engineer and just got $100 million project with BP Oil based in Aberdeen, Scotland. One daughter Kim she 12 lives in New York with wicked aunt. He plans to retire as siinashecan get paid $1 million from BP. He wants me to get package but I need to send $30,000 for customs and immigration costs. His supposed daughter text me and as did a supposed guy from BP who was suppose to be agent sending money for him.

I lost my heart with all the wonderful things he said. It was everything I wanted to hear.

Don’t fall for this guy. Fortunate it only cost me $100 to to the point I figured out he was scamming me. First I didn’t have $30,000 to give away and I have very suspicious from the start. He got hurt when I tried questioning about motives. STOP!!! Don’t fall for his scam.

has anyone been scammed by a guy named cliff ambritz????

I was friend requested by a man named Phillip Liam on FB. He asked me to contact him on Hangouts. I just blocked him there because I believe he's a fake. He blocked me on FB after we started "chatting" on Hangouts. His English typing is odd. He's never asked me for money. He sent me a photo of him in a suit standing in front of an expensive looking sports car. When I asked him what kind of car it was he said a Zenvo. I googled it and it's a 1.8 million dollar car. He got angry that I mentioned it and asked why I was "digging" which makes no sense since no one who wants to get to know you would react like that. He claims he is from San Francisco, his wife died of cancer a year and a half ago, he has ac15 year old son named Jessie in school in Canada, and his parents were killed in a plane crash when he was a child. I had been scammed recently and this sounds like the same thing! I don't know what this guy's game is since he has not asked me for money. He claims to get off the ship in two months. I blocked him on Hangouts and reported his FB profile page. In just posting this in case others have been contacted. My gut says trouble!

There is this gentleman initials C .Scott stating he is from the USA currently in Damascus Syria with the world food program he is asking for iTunes and money I'm getting emails from united nations requesting money for this persons leave is this a scam

That sounds like a scam.

Ladies,

I have been talking to 3 different guys I met on line. Same site. One is stationed in Syria, one claims to be in the CIA, and the 3rd is a contractor working on an oil rig.

Guy #1 is amazing cute, he is 52 and has a 10 year old daughter. He claims he is retiring this month, first it was July 1st, then he said it would be the 8th he said he has orders to go on mission, he then tells me it will be the 15th due to mission had been pushed, he has asked for cell phones so he can sell them to come home
He was then coming home on Friday the 20th but now his mission I'd back on. He promises to be home on the 22nd. I feel after reading all of your comments he is a scammer.
Guy number 2 went to Afghanistan on the request of the president. He text me after a week and said he room was ransacked and his camera was taken and he needed 10,000$ for a camera, when I told him I didn't have it he got mad. Then about 2 weeks after that he said that they kept changing his come home date he was there on his own and needed money so he come home. I stopped.talking to me. So after that about 2 weeks ago he asked if I could sent him more ey for a plain ticket. I did not reply. I haven't heard from him since. Then #3 is in the water on an oil rig near Florida. At first it was he had to borrow money from a friend because his card would not work. I explained to him then I lived paycheck to paycheck. The next red flag was can you send a 50$ iTune card to his son in UK where he is in boarding school. Now he asks every day for me to get him money because his diving mask malfunction and he needs 2,200$ to get a new one. I told him I did not have it. Now it's if you give a friend 200$ he will then help him get the mask. He has even told me to his son an iTunes card again. Oh yea 3 days ago he asked me to sell my car. I am divorced and making payments on it. He then got upset and know not calling me.

Anyone heard of Richie Jnr Roberts on FB?? JW--no red flags yet!!

Met a what seemed very sweet man online apparently on line saying he needs money for paying his nanny do it for him n the daughter claims fone is broken for sound n pic when I asked to do a video call to c who I'm talking to... Also asked me to send money for I tunes and send money to his nanny's husband in Nigeria I don't believe a word of it all seems too fishy. The amount of lies to get a meet.... I do t even want to meet the guy now I'm just waiting for another lie to be spun...... All the lovey do ey messages its crazy I think defo a con artist. Sent me videos and pics of himself at the gym of his daughter his house his cars saying he will pay me back was I born yesterday

I know someone who met a guy online and quickly it became a romance with plans to be together forever. They have never met in person. The guy says he is basically a mercenary (former Special Ops) and is sent around the world for undercover security jobs. He is paid in cash, under the table. He is sending money to my friend, for my friend to send to Nigeria. This makes no sense to me. Is this a scam? Or is it a set up for a different type of scam in the future?

Some scammers use people to help them transfer stolen money. They don't reveal that the money is stolen - they tell a story to hide the purpose for the transaction. They meet people online, create a relationship, and ask their new sweetheart to use her bank account to receive and transfer money.

If you do this for a scammer, your name is on the bank account and on the money transfer forms. If you get involved with one of these schemes, you could lose money and personal information, and you could get into legal trouble.

Other scammers send fake checks to their new friends. They ask the friend to deposit the check, and then quickly transfer funds overseas. It can take days for the bank to find out a check is fake. If you transfer money before the bank has fully cleared the check, you can lose money. If the bank finds out the check was fake after you sent the money, you must repay the bank all the money you sent.

It is really disturbing to read all this and what people are doing out their, preying on people's hearts for a little money. I almost fell for it...the heart part....until I asked him about what music he likes to listen to and he gave me the whole story of not being able to buy iTunes in The Gulf of Mexico.
So here is his profile (but it will change daily).....Met him on Words with friends. Convinced me to move to hangout....some weird excuse about being in the Gulf. Hangout screen name is "Special Man".....his email address is Rogerbecker990 @ gmail.com. But that can all change as we know. Gave me some story about having to communicate on hangouts because he would be able to use to use WWF shortly....whatever. Pic was probably early to mid 40's, although we all know it is not him...but salt and pepper short hair, goatee. Brown eyes. Stated he was born in Germany, father died when he was 7 in military war, mother died when he was 13. He was raised by his neighbour, a teacher. Stories will also change pending on audience. Claimed he was 54, as he was figuring out my age. Pic did not match that age. Still was playing along soaking up the attention, being naive. "Honey, baby, dear, I love you".....no 54 year old man would be saying that, that quickly.....1st day of communicating. Still played along. Then when I asked him about what music he likes on day 2, he gave me the whole iTunes spiel and would not give up...asking me to buy him $400 worth of iTunes cards. That was it. Some other red flags.....repeated word for word texts. Would say "like I said"....but didn't say previously to me. Once the iTunes card would stop...Of course I stopped there, not doing that. And I am not done. I know lots of people including Cesis, law enforcement and government. I will do anything to try and stop these guys on preying on women. Even if I can stop this one! Be aware! Never ever give money or gift cards to anyone you don't really know, unless it is a charity or something legit you have approached!

Watch out for a guy named Scott Richmond. Met him on Twitter but then started talking to him on Hangouts. He said he was an engineer with ExxonMobil. Lived in Washington DC. Is a widowed father of two boys Nelson and Todd. He says he's 67. In his pictures he has white hair and sometimes wears glasses. I think he drives a newer white f150 and lives in Washington DC. He says he's currently in China on an oil rig last time we talked. He says his equipment broke so he needs 10,000 for new drill plate. Before he left for China he was asking for money constantly to cover cost of hiring workers to go to China with him. He says he's madly in love with you. Doesn't care if you're married. He calls you baby dear and sweetheart. He acts like he's very financially stable. He supposedly just got some really lucrative engineer oil rig contract in China. He was suppose to be there month and 2 weeks. This guy is a charmer up until you tell him you won't give him money. Then he's mean selfish and doesn't care about your well being. I deleted my Twitter acct but I blocked him on Hangouts, which has used several times a day. Probably talking to new victims. I never gave him money bank acts etc. So he must've gave up on me bc he basically stopped messaging me.

Anyone heard of a John sidel from Afghanistan which might be a scammer

So pleased I found this page.. have this doctor Robdavid500 following me on Instagram for about 6 weeks now. So handsome. Has little girl 12 year old in boarding school in America so he said first of all. He wanted to start messaging via hangouts. Said such nice things and asking me for face pictures. He is working for UN as surgeon in Iraq on Contract. He asked for money to be sent via money gram to his daughters teacher as his daughter had been overspending but gave some address in Nigeria !! Alarm bells straight away. He said he wanted to leave Iraq but needed money to buy out of Contract. He said his full name is Doctor Robert Lawrence Jones. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Yes he too seems to follow many women on Instagram.

I get at least one a week contacting me through words with friends. They are so predictable! Works for either the UN or NATO as a Doctor or Consultant/surgeon on peace keeping missions in Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq. Alternatively they are oil engineers working offshore or some remote place! All are single parents with children living abroad, boarding schools!

They use words of endearment such as my dear (really winds me up!), lots of compliments and proverbs about friendship and love!

Usually ask you to go on hangout or request your email address!

English is poor and I have asked whether English is their second language. Sometimes they admit they are and say they speak a European language. I had one who said he was German so I started writing messages in German. He then admits he can't speak German and left there as a child! What a crock...........!

2 questions
1. Do you give people so much information about yourself in the first five minutes of knowing them
2. Do you speak to strangers using terms of endearment?

If the answer is NO then you are dealing with a scammer. They are trying to pull on your heart strings and gain your trust quickly. Don't fall for it!

2 bits of advice
1. Don't give them your email or engage with them on another forum
2. Report them as impersonators on whatever online site you are on. Don't let them get away with it!

They really pee me off and sometimes I play along to waste their time....... whilst they are talking to me they can't be bothering someone else.

Any one heard of Greg Whitespencerman?.. on instagram or Whiteman Ricotta on Facebook?... same person, said I was special loved me etc.... was a freelance contractor, just had got a contract to build an underground train station contract was worth $11,000,000 then suddenly had to go to Dubai as he had to supervise some job , 2 days ago asked me for some help $300 worth cos he needed to recharge his ph as his money was tied up in the contract , When I refused .... he totally abused me and told me I was worthless etc etc,

Has anyone heard of Dr. Walker Evans1??? Or Walker Glover??? Living in Syria for now as an Orthopedic Surgeon, has worked for the Unitrd Nations Security Council for 25 years and is the Chief Executor for the United Nations as an Emergency Dr. permanently resides in Jacksonville, Florida. Wife died years ago in a car accident. Has a son by the name of Jerry in boarding school in the U K. Needs you to E-mail the United Nations and ask for permission for him to take a 2 or 3 week vacation to come and see you. A small amount of money will be asked for to go to the United Nations for him to get vacation. Professes nothing but pure love for you, asks for your picture and sends one of himself. Says he is 60 years of age.Has to be a complete Scammer!!!

I think you must be talking about the person I know as Dr. Alex Sullivan. Exact same story and information given. Says that he is only playing Words with Friends with other people but that I am the only one he "communicates with". Likely Story!! So far he hasn't asked for any money.

Hi I'm talking to a guy name Jeffery mendoza working for US army blue angel.right now posting in nigeria he has asked for $200..I haven't transferd it any..we are still talking about marriage..he has big tattoo on his hand..Very good looking..dimple on right chin..if anyone has been duped by tis guy

He hasn’t asked me for money yet, but I found it weird he sent me a pic with her daughter 6 years old and she looked older, at least he writes better than the other scammer I found. He told me he is in the Navy.

Has anyone heard of a John Wilson. Claims he is on an oil rig in the gulf. Has a 15 year old daughter in the Uk.

mine went by Leo on a oil rig and his daugther was 15 in the UK and he was from Australia and he got iTunes. Then he went for the big money and I said no here comes you don't love me . It was too late for me he got me on the tunes.

Has anybody been contacted by a USA Dr working away with a daughter in boarding school asking for money
Thanks

Is he a neurosurgeon working for the UN on a peacekeeping mission in Iraq? Is his daughter 10 and in school in Aruba? His wife deceased 3 years ago? His parents both died when he was 11. His BDay is 11/24/66?

I've been talking to a man from a dating site through email. He uses the name of Mark David Lee . He claims to be a self employed Contractor , with a Company named Empoint Construction . I've already found out that there in no such company . He claims to be in Dubai working on a contract job now . He said he froze his bank account before leaving the states . Now he is saying that he has to pay taxes on the money upfront before they will pay him on completion of the job . He said his daughter sent him $30,000 and he has paid $ 75,000 out of the money he took with him over there . He said he still needs $50,000 , and asked if I could send him the money , and he would pay me back double when he comes home . I know he is a scammer because I've already caught him in several lies , but he has tried to lie his way out of them . Now he is wanting me to let his bank manager transfer funds out of his account and into mine so that I can send him the money . He must think that i'm the biggest fool that ever walked this earth ! I told him there was no way in H - - - I would ever give out any of my personal information to anyone that I have never even laid eyes on , or even know that he is the man in the pictures that I am talking to in writing . I told him he could be Joe Blow on the street corner as far as I know . I told him to send me a copy of his Drivers License , and a copy of his passport , his Social Security number and Bank Account number , so that I could have him checked out . Guess what ??? I haven't heard back from him !! Remember the name : Mark David Lee

Differebt man but same storiesl Scammers.

I am a latin woman so i apologize if my English is not perfect. Last month I have been talking with a guy called Victor Morrison. He looks like a gentleman, is from England, is working with UN in Yemen, he is in charge of medical and food supplies. He is 39 (although he looks a little older), is bald, with a nice gray beard and always wear elegant outfits in different parts of world and all his photos are selfies. He has a tragic story, his parents and pregnant wife died on 9-11 after that he married again with a woman who cheated him. After that (2009) he has been alone in the world and only focused on his work. Due he lives in a war zone he cannot show me his camera and his facebook is closed. He fell in love since the third day we chat (even he could not remember my name…) and he is allways polite, respectful, and believes in God.
His tragic history was unbelievable but I wanted believe it. His behavior causes me suspice: He stops conversations suddenly (he has unexpected calls or emergencies), when I try to talk about the places he visited he never give me details, always wanted more pics (I just sent him some regular ones), he mixed the names of his wives and when I search for the pics on web I could discover two of them don’t belong to the places he mentioned. Anyway I continue talking with him, because it was a good way to practice my English, but he was desperated to meet us, marrying me ( he called me his wife) and live together in my country and run a business here. He needed request his vacations and he needed I help him with the paperwork. I said yes, I can but he suggested I should help him with money for the legal paperworks and tramits because it is complicated asking for vacations in a war zone. I got angry and I suggested he was a scammer and he was very hurt and sad for my accusation. I wanted to know more and finally I write to the address he sent unitednationsofficeforvacation@ protonmail. ch and Identified as his girlfriend (he said I should write I was his wife). The domain of mail is a super secure mail used by big enterprises. They replied the same day in a very formal letter but they needed my personal data to start the process of vacations. Due this I spend more time in the net looking for the photos and I found another profile with other name (Nelson) in other site and a facebook profile with only 12 women as friends. Almost all were latin women and I discovered one close to my city, I write her and we shared information. She was not yet in the mail stage, but the pics he use or talks or stories where the same. When I confronted him, he stopped talking me. I just hope the pics I sent don’t be used for scammers.

I have been having a conversation of several weeks with a man I met on Twitter. I have done my due diligence and done a google image search on every photo he has sent me, with no results. Must be new to the game. Says he is a Dr. stationed with the US Army in Syria. Widowed, with a daughter he never talks about. He wants mt to help him pay for a leave so he can come back to the US and we can be together. He first asked me to send him my credit card information and I absolutely refused. The he started talking about bitcoin and I told him I know nothing about it. Now he wants me to open an account for him at a bank so he can transfer money into it for me to pay for the travel expenses associated with his leave. I don't intend to do it. I know it is a scam, but I can't seem to break away.

Same as me .says in usa military deployed in russia..calls every day.voice fits pics..cant find images anywhere but found 2 other f.b accs on him..not same photos used off them..all seems ligit..all selfies..pics r not fake..just sent me pic in uniform..so gorgeous and saying all the loving stufr marraige etc..his commander has asked for 1400 dollars for his leave come to me in the uk..that is the only red flag i think..im trying get thw money together i cant pull away either..im not too certain its a scam i think he is who he says he is and ive fell in love and cant stop..oh gawd he seems so genuine..ive even sent a messenger message on his old f.b acc to ask is he the same person im talking to on watsapp..going out of my mind! he says he us telling the truth and was upset i thort he was fake says hes fell in love with me..i am also very attractive and perhaps he cud have as i have with him..looks like a model? Help!!

Mel, there AREN'T US soldiers, who are deployed in Russia.

anybody being scammed by a randy allen, at least he's aid that is his name, apparently leaves in kabul, afghanistan?

Has anyone found a true love on a dating site? Starts out he loves me dearly, when he gets home he will buy me everything I could want including a new house any where I want. I have sent small amounts of money from time to time. He will be able to afford this because he has been in Europe buying gold and diamonds. Now he is at a airport in France. He has passport, has airline ticket to USA and all his insured gold and diamonds but needs $12,000.00 to get his gold and diamonds to the US. Also he is sleeping in the airport. Comments anyone?

Brian Andreas Lukas says he is from Texas, and other states, an Architect, 60 years old, birthday 16 June, is scamming the ladies again, this man is on LinkedIn, on catfish, was taken off OK Cupid for impersonating, his email is or was blksa016 @gmail. com, telephone number in the us +1 650 435 7564 and in Turkey +90 548 878 4421. Ladies compare your notes and see what numbers you have, did you also get sent the contract for the Hotel to be renovated in Turkey - that certificate is a FAKE. Ask him to Skype you, he will say he does not skype. Tells you it is Brian and ......... forever, etc... etc. so convincing it is frightening. say that you are his wife. Calls on hang out day and night, sends poems off the internet, songs off Joox, you think you have met the one and only... BE AWARE he has been doing this for years. Sends about 8 pictures of himself (or maybe it is somebody else). He even tells you he has a translator in Turkey. Ask him to produce his passport - he cant do this. ask for any form of ID, he tells you it is with his translator for his work permit to be "extended". I just cant believe that somebody can keep getting away with this.

I may be talking to this person. Almost the same name; story slightly different. Do you have pictures?

“David Martinez” is active now; just had yet another email from him. It’s the whole scam—cashiers check, own shipper, overpayment, etc. etc. Don’t get sucked in.

Hi everyone! Unfortunately, I was taken for a ride myself; I went on a dating website since you cannot have a conversation with anyone in real life because everyone is looking down on their phones so I figured I would do a dating site and boy oh boy... call me 'SUCKER" because I was all caught up in stories of women's parents/husbands/boyfriends/Siblings dying and they were all alone; attractive women quick to send a picture of themselves and within two days, already fell in love with me and want to spend the rest of their lives with me and marry me and blah, blah, blah! Now, everyone posted that they were stateside on their profiles but when the texting began, they were either in GHANA or NIGERIA...working with UNICEF or WHO (World Health Organization) but needed money for medical expenses, new phones, laptops, or phone cards so they could keep in touch with me or else they will lose service and we will lose contact...we would meet on Hangouts and the funny thing about that is I was able to disable the alert that shows when I was on or available so they couldn't see when I was on but I could tell when they were on and weren't talking to me! And they needed monies either through iTunes or Amazon cards or the traditional Western Union or Money Grams...it was heartbreaking because they all sounded so sincere and I'm so ready to love and be loved and now it seems like a fantasy at this point...I cancelled Hangouts and I'm just done with how people could be so malicious, conniving and evil to take advantage of someone who just wants to be with someone and enjoy life together? God bless you all for sharing and at least I know I'm not alone on this.

If its any consolation ladies it goes both ways. Have had a rash of young women hit me up on FB to friend me. ( Name ) single for some days, want to meet you. Do you want? Click and then press (with a youtube link) Karina ,Terri, Lauren, Janet, Anne, Holly, Andrea ,Jennifer. All on same FB page. All have that mid to late 20s Russian bride look. What could they possibly want with a 61 year old man? Other than a sugar daddy. Or to increase traffic to their youtube video. Has posts from 1986 Born August 3 1986. My daughter is older than that. And no I'm not in the service or work on an oil rig or need anyone to send money. Some of your comments sound like a twist on the old Nigerian letter scam. Bill

Had a couple guys try to scam me on FB. Which they didn’t get far like a couple days. Using the oil rig story and boarding daughter bs line. Now last night some guy on LinkedIn called Steve Wortman. Works in Syria as a physio therapist with the UN. His wife died and had my same name and he has no children. I chatted with him via linked for about 30 minutes. One key, is a huge response with not enough time to write it. Copy and paste. I played along and gave him an old email. I awoke with an email so over the top, I copied and pasted into google and that is how I found this site. I block him on LinkedIn and wrote back to his email telling him I didn’t appreciate his BS letter and told him to get a real job. Ladies, I met my husband in 1999 online. He moved heaven and earth to get me to London which were I lived for 16yrs. No man worth a grain a salt would ask a women for a dime.

A man contacted me through OK Cupid. He says his name is Mark Stanley. His English is such that I can tell it is not his "mother tongue" and he texted "Alaya" and just ignored me when I asked what that word meant. After talking via text, very bland conversation I may add, he started telling me that "he felt he had known me a long time" and that I "reached his heart". My gut tells me he is a scammer, but I do not know if I am simply being suspicious since I was burned pretty bad by a scammer who called himself "Henry Adam." He sent me a link to his FB which said he had established the page in 2011 but there are very few photos and few friends listed. Has anyone heard of a scammer named Mark Stanley who says he is from Jacksonville, North Carolina?

Stephen Leo Wells is supposedly for Liverpool, uk with a 9 year old daughter who mother was killed in a car accident
Wants ur email address to write you beautiful love letters daily. I blocked him because quickly he went from wanting to be friends to he Was completely in love and wanted to move to the states and he became irrational and irate so upset that he sent me a message tell me that he told his 9 year old daughter, smh, that I didn’t trust him.

My friend is talking to a 4 star General goes by the name Jerry Morgan. He is in Afghanistan or Syria. He has a 15 year old in the state of Ga. Has anyone ever heard of this man. He claims to be 54.

I am currently being scammed by Maurice Paul Daniel. He had me transfer 300000.00 from a bank in Nigeria. I was to transfer to Eric Ramirez. I did it next day he texts that his machine on drilling rig and his bank wouldn't transfer funds over the phone. I was supposed to wire money to Tamara something. Can't remember but I have account number and pin number if not fake. He asked me to borrow money from my family. Demanded I do it. I texted him about romance scams and haven't heard from him since.

I have been talking to a guy - Frank Morgan widowed with a 7 year old son being looked after by his school teacher - he is supposed to be a wealthy oil rig contractor who had a $2.4 million contract to clear up an oil spill in the north sea. After a few weeks disaster his bank account is blocked and he cannot buy essential tools to repair a transformer damaged in a storm. He will not be paid unless he can repair the transformer but needs $3000 to get tools sent to him on rig. Anyone else know him?

Has anyone heard of brayan willex thing is he didn't ask for money just to help him get off the ship he was working. For the u n then I got a letter fake from the u n asking me to send money for his way home

Bridget Small FTC, a friend has been chatting with an Army Captian by the name Ares, currently deployed to Syria, always on night patrol, contact through Whatt App,. According to her, he was order to LOSE COMMUNICATION WITH EVERYONE. Also she claims the have chatted very briefly once a month for the pass 3 months. Could this be a possible scammer?

This sounds like the person who scammed me but the name he used was James Broussard and transferred money to Christian Richardson.

In my hangout app I got about 10 scamers.all of them or lady's, asking for money.never ever I didn't give money or real name or stuff like that.try to play around with them then will give up

Can you tell me more about this James Broussard? Just met someone with the same name....

Has anyone had any contact with cliff Daniel? Stated he is from Australia originally had three children and widowed. He stated he is in Syria as a contractor... I met him on a dating site I made a huge mistake ! I had done all the research and everything came clear. However I gave in I have lost over 80 grand and credit is ruin.
