His old profile says that he went to Dayton University, now he has a new profile on Facebook with the young lady on his back and he says she is his daughter who looks totally different from the other girl in the old profile. I was laughing so hard at one yesterday that I answered him back with my own " sad, widow, lonely" story.
He professes you are his wife, with poems and the like. The also claim to be "new" to FB and that's why they found you (another angle they use to get the sympathy vote from their victim " I'm so lonely since my wife passed & need friends or love)Then the game begins and I still get these messages to begin this "relationship ".
He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. The names of these last few are Bob Rowland from NYC but he was from NYC, also Jsmes Geisler ( Nigerian name is Jude which he gave me when I told him I knew what was up and he wanted to know how I felt about interracial relationships) & the real doozy, Steven Aaron, from Dallas (he's a pro) has a daughter named Mirabel (who needs a mother) & he even gets the "daughter to PM you also, his FB is VERY GOOD has names, pictures an entire history of his life AND the icing on the cake with him is he will post on your FB page that he loves you & goes as far as putting in his status that you're "in a relationship"!!! Later after a couple of weeks speaking he wanted me to send 0 so his children could go onto a school trip.
He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy. Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled! I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him. Be careful gang they are all the same signs & red flags! Borrow from friends, ask relatives, sell my jewelry and he will make things right between us. The money had to be sent through western union to johannesburgh and send to Benjamin, so really now my eyes are open. I have posted before about my guy who worked on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. I have sent him money to come to see me and every time something happens.
He seemed too good to be true so we didnt fall for his scam. Continues to ask for i Tune cards and my credit card. Not some scam that is asking for MORE money to get her money back. I last heard from him in August - I had stopped giving $$ until we met & of course he disappeared. I have A real man in my life so one day I will be be fully over this! So now we know so please all of you bait them up with sweetness and even make some promises but report them before you go on Hangouts or any other place TO GET THEM TO LOSE THEIR IP AND NAME ON FACEBOOK AS THAT IS A GREAT IDEA SO THEY CAN BE WEEDED OUT THAT WAY. Gave me a number to call (was Florida number) and the diplomat (?? No I didn't pay it but I have heard this story twice now.
He did mention once his tool broke down but he has yet to ask for any money. I keep talking to him but avoid the subjects he talks about. He will give her one lie after another as to why he did not show. Stay strong ladies - don't share info until you meet - that's my new rule. Just be smart how you keep them on the hook while the other hand is reporting them to Facebook. If you get a request from a man with a Hummingbird on his picture he is a scammer so just be careful as he is good.
He is very wealthy so you have nothing to worry about. This actually shows the ignorance of the scammer or that they are new to the scam game.
They are all Widows & have one child that is in boarding school because he has to work on an oil rig. ) They are 9 times out of 10 white, I'm the age bracket of 50-55. If you look at their FB page it shows either NOTHING as far as posts, pictures, anything that a normal person would have OR if you look at it a little bit there is all pictures of African American men with pictures supporting who they really are, with pictures of life in Nigeria, posts written in a foreign language and such.
Once again, I have been away for awhile but, the stories are all still the same. I've noticed similar things with these scammers, they try to make you feel guilty for questioning them, they turn it around, one accused me of being self centered, money driven, like to see people suffer, money rules my life etc. I've been through a difficult year and admit you could say I'm vulnerable and these guys have been gap filling but I have to remind myself they are fake. Gray was always very concerned if I’ve had a ‘blissful night sleep’. And he would end a chat by saying ‘soft kisses and hugs’. This progressed to requests for multiple Itunes cards and more and more money. Steve, I can’t thank you enough for creating this site! [Steve: you are welcome, and its wonderful to know the site helped you in some way. His wife died 2 years ago and now he is ready to find love. He hasnt ask for money yet, since im very poor hahahahaha. From day one I knew something wasnt right with all that lovely nature and falling in love 3 days after he saw my picture. Parents divorced and he was sent to live with his aunt in Poland and Indian Uncle. His phone is connected to a Danville, CA Phone messenger service and when I called it would sound tinny as if in a tunnel almost like when you call a foreign country. Watch for phrases that likely are my queen, missing you like crazy. In no time he is madly in love with you and wants to marry you. He needs an ITunes gift card, or his child needs something or his equipment broke and he needs big money for repairs. Don't let the picture fool you because behind it is a man from Nigeria. Please......ladies....a REAL man that loves you and does NOT ask for money. I'd like to get my hands on that devil man and his whole crew!
to tell me he had to stay, that the inspector didnt pass it. On Monday, he ended his morning chat saying ‘sending love and smiles your way’. Sometimes it takes several months once they feel they have your trust. Said he had borrowed million from the bank and put up his 3 homes as collateral. Meet the person in person but please don't give them your hard earned money. I’ve been on this site for 4 months waiting to hear something that resonated with my experience, and I think this might be it. It is so so sad to lose you retirement, your home and your sanity over a scammer. There's also a woman with a lisp going by the name of Janet.
He needed money to pay for workers to fix the problem, and this continued with stuck in hurricanes to living on the street, 00's of dollars later Im still waiting. Said he discovered some faulty pipes underwater that needed to be repaired and that the bank would not loan him anymore money. He never asked for money, but got belligerent when I would not provide a phone number. Have a Blessed Day and thanks again for Watch for Scams. Why are so many of us looking to see who else their scammer scammed? If you find yourself in a very vulnerable situation you can fall in love very easy with this Idiot. I just chatted with one guy who claimed to be Charles Krasberg working as an Oil Rig Project Engineer with Keppel Offshore & Marine. Claiming he is divorced with a 20 year old daughter in boarding school in UK. Got connected with him thru Profile name : charlie4life17Thanks. If anyone out there has talked to him please comment. I was frauded out of a small fortune by that creep It happened March thru Aug last year.
I mentioned our "mutual" friend (of course she is female). Seems like a very good catch and he will relocate to singapore in a month's time. He wants me to send money to his agent to complete paper work so he can get done with his contract on time. I have been talking to him for about 3 months, he has asked me for i Tune cards, and money, I refused. And, if you can find his information, report him to the FBI. I lost some money to him - not as much as these others but the heartbreak & deception hurt so much more than the $$. Yes I had the "my son is crying on the phone every day for school equipment he needs.
We managed to discover his scam when he accidentally copied the same email to the other ladies. Now he wants my credit card so he can put his money on it to do what he needs to do, and I asked him if he is crazy, he told me I am difficult and self centered. But he still loves me more than anything and can’t wait to meet me. She will never get her money back unless she tries through the FBI. I still wonder at times since I was so sure he was real. That is why they want to get you off fast so they can keep their IP address. He sure does want to get to know someone like me that has such a good heart and is soooo gorgeous! When that didn't work, he asked if I could receive his wages until he sorted his bank out.
