  • The Lewis Ficher is out again! E-mailing me right now. I had a gut feeling so I type he name and here is where it lead me. Still using the same e-mail address: lficher@ymail.com.
  • I'd like to comment on Nemg_lina posting which was make on August 28th. I too have been contacted by Nelson Ben! He contact me through a dating site. His posting on the website stated he lived in the USA, but once we begun IM'ing I find out he lives (so he says) in Singapore. That he was raised in South America. He has no family left. His parents were killed 11 years ago in a crash. He has a younger sister MaryAnn, but they are no longer close now that she is married. He said he moved to Singapore 9 months ago to be closer to his Textile farm that he owns in Thiland. The red flag went up for me the moment he said he lived out of the country yet posted on a dating site that he lives in the states. He said he was in that city for business, when he originally posted his profile. He moves very quickly telling me within days how much he likes me and can see himself with me. I don't buy it one bit and since have stopped talking to him. Please be careful out there, please are something now a days.

    Nelson Ben - Age 38

  • I'd like to thanks Nemg_lina who has posted details of scammers with name and emails. You make a lucky day for me. It's help me a lot because i also have contacted for these scams in Date in Asia website. Thanks again.
  • Hi i just got scammed in ordering iphone in Uk he gave me the address that he is in manchester and when I confirmed it to the western union they said the money was picked up in london and so the guys cannot provide me with the tracking number. I conclude they were scammed and try to cancel my transaction and said they will owe me nothing if i do that. I told him that i will file a complaint and he can be easily tract down because when i talked to the western union they will provide the authority that will be needed for the crime, best thing is that we have cameras all over the world :) Even if they have valid ID. I reported it to my friend he's a General and working on it, ill will not stop until they get pay for the crime they made.And now im waiting for progress but before that i also report it to ic3...I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ON HOW TO TRACE THE IP ADDRESS?
  • by the way the recipient is JOHN DAVE KINGSLEY and hi sale "associate" jocelyn sadalas and patricia lozano
  • One more thing I have a suggestion to the victims of scam..you have to report it to your local FBI so they will be contacting INternational FBI so they can work on the cases..we have to give all our best to participate with them in order to give lessons to these fucking scammers. And if we wont do anything there will be more victims to come and in the end happy feast to all victims

  • Hi all I think I have been played here.Met this handsome Italian guy on dating site he's from UK then he travelled to Nigeria for business.He does not travel with cash he only uses credit card.His credit card is not accepted in Nigeria so he asked for money to settle the hotel bill and buy plane ticket to come and see me in South Africa.He promised to give it back as soon as he land even sent me copy of plane ticket.Now as he is about to board the plane they demand Basic Travel Allowance from him of R1000.00usd. Now that I said I don't have the money he is still in Nigeria they wouldn't let him leave.I suggested he goes to UK embassy he gives me an excuse and when I suggest he calls a family member or colleuge back home still gives me an excuse.
    The way he is crying I actually thought his story is for real.He even proposed to marriage to me and he is coming with the ring.
  • A few years ago, I got scammed by a guy who claimed to be american-turkish desent, he changes up his name a lot, but I talk fast and confused him so he contradicted himself. He went with the story that he was an engineer, then a contractor, in Ghana, then transferring to Lagos Nigeria; said he was divorced, wife caught cheating w/BF. says he lived inCA, then Seattle, then Atlanta. Asked for $$$ numerous times for numerous reasons, medical bills, got robbed, daughter in crash and in coma, sister in DV marriage trying to escape husband in south africa, etc. Then on theway here and all of a sudden he's arrested at the airport w/cocaine in his carry-on and needs bail money and bribe money to be released and allowed to fly out of Lagos, BTAis bullshit--if you'reflying KLM (which seems to be the airline of choice for these scammers) you get fed and don't need $ to eat on the plane. If all you're concerned about is getting out of a country where all kinds of bad things have happened, then flying broke means nothing, as long as you're on the way "home". This guy had fake checks sent to me and almost got me locked up over them. anyway, he went by Phillip Morgan Corbin, MANY email addresses, all on yahoo, he was also onMatch.com, and now he's going under morgan.phillip96@yahoo.com. His daughter's name was supposedly Erika. What kind of sick person would make up a child, or heinous ailments to get $? Like one reader posted, they'd do better to be honest, since Nigeria is an impoverished country due to government corruption, to be honest and ask for help instead of breaking peoples hearts and bank accounts. Good luck...be smart and be safe
  • BTW Lewis Ficher has 2 profiles on Match.com right now, still claims to be in Selma Alabama
  • I was contacted by somebody using the name Adrian Palmer. His email and IM are Sevenstarstunner. I saw a couple of other comments about him on this site. He found me on chemistry.com. He is a real charmer but I thought him too good to be true. I typed in Sevenstarstunner to a search engine and found this site. I haven't been scammed yet but it gives me the creeps. Everybody please be careful.
  • Scammer is on blackpeoplemeet.com. Uses the name of solomon11, ussolomon11, toneyloves, toneyloves1, usstoneyloves, email toneyloves1@yahoo.com. Uses the name Tony Steele, Toney Steele, Felix Steele. Uses the age range of 45, 46, 49, 51. Claims to live in Pensacola, Florida. I tricked him and said I was on my way down there. Suddenly he is not there and is now in Orlando. I said, "okay, I come there, give me the address". Now he was stuck and so said, no just go to Pensacola. I guess he thought he would save me the extra miles just to find out it was a scam. In the end, he laughed said all his friends were laughing about a desperate woman that would drive to Pensacola. He called me names, abused me verbally and even threatened to kill me. QWho knows how many ads this guy uses but he some how calls from a Pensacola area code of 850. He must use some type of VOIP. He called day and night. Seemed he never slept. He certainly never worked. When he sent text the text messages came across funny on my phone. It was one word then skip to the next line and the next word and so on. It is more than obvious that whatever he was using to send text on was a keyboard and was not very compatible with a cell phone texting system in the U.S. He always made errors such as when it should be a "u" he put "i", which is right next to each other on a keyboard so his typing errors made it evident he was typing from a keyboard or at least a Qwerty keyboard on a cell phone which is highly doubtful because of the way the text were not compatible. Also I am sure it was not a cell phone as he claimed because I did a cell phone search on one of the websites and it said it was from a landline which is how it shows if you are using your computer to run your phone through. In the end when I called him out on it, he admitted it and would not quit with his harassing text. I finally text and said, "do not text me again. consider this your official warning. If you text again I will report you for harassment". That scared him off and he stopped. Signs were there that something was wrong. He did not ask me for money but he mentioned things that I knew where they would lead. such as he was saying he is going to go in on a bar/restaurant with friends in Pensacola. (the fact he couldn't even spell Pensacola right but claims to live there). When I said I wouldn't want to be with a man that owns a bar. Then he abandoned that business idea and next tried to get me to go look at a website that sold african stuff, and he was saying that he wants me to build him a website so he can sell stuff from there. I said no. Then he tried again with this african stuff and tried to lure me to go on that site just to take a look and give him advice because he will try and sell it at festivals etc. I never went to the website. I would encourage all of you to steer clear of a website like that in which someone is insisting you go. They can spread a virus on your computer, or possibly try to get you to create an account there and thus get your passwords, etc. lots of people use the same password to order online as they do for email addresses etc. Well the good news is the guy got nothing out of me and wasted a couple of months of his time. The bad news is that he wasted a couple of mine as well.
  • FYI: the above post regarding Tony Steele in Pensacola, I never did find out exactly where he is located. Also, he has an american sounding voice and posts a picture of a black guy. He only has a total of 6 and can't come up with any more than that. He says he was born in the Caribbeans, but then later said he was from Brooklyn New York (after I asked him if he was a month prior... haha). He sounds like a white guy from the U.S. and on one profile says he was never married, another one said legally separated, another said divorced. one profile says he has one kid and one taht lives with him. one says one kid and it doesn't live with him. One profile says he smokes socially and one says he doesn't smoke. He was also posted out on craigslist but took that one down when I found it. When I was talking to him he acted very jealous, which only makes it seem more real that his feelings are genuine. Don't be fooled by that. In the end all he is after is to scam, and keep in mind, he is not just talking to you that way, he is talking to tons of other women and saying the exact same thing to all of them.
  • I am searching this on line because I had one contact me on Face book. I rarely accept friends i do not know on face book but i asked him how he found me. The usual I like your smile. Short story he asked for very expensive party for his daughters birthday, did not send money, asked for money for her expensive field trip (in nigeria) and he is working in Scotland and lives in NY working for Exxon. I started researching him by his email address the the UK phone number he gave me. KelvinRoberts41@yahoo.com. Nice pic on face book but it is not him. Even sent one with him and daughter!! When i searched the email address also found the phone number he gave me on all the scams he was running for a nanny and it led to more scams running same add, different email addresses but same UK phone number which was blocked when he called, When he unblocked it was a US number from california. When I first got suspicious i told him to take a pic of himself with his blackberry and send to me right then. He could never do that. His name is Kelvin Roberts (at this time) and he runs scams on line for nanny's for hire. His last attempt was to get his paycheck for him and send to him in Scotland so he could make trip to Nigeria. When i could not do that and made other suggestions to him that would work better he got really mad. Always making it look my fault. My brain does not work this way so this really amazes me. He sure was a lover until he got mad. When I did finally talk to him in Scotland, he does not have a NY accent or Canadian which he claims is where his dad is from but very strong Nigerian!!!. Imagine that. I don't mean to slam anyone from Nigeria I know there are scams all over the world, it just seems they have had them come out of the woodwork. Just some tips if you do not know...their written and spoken language is not proper english unless someone is writing it for them. Most other countries do not use articles in their language both written and spoken so those are missing. Ask too many questions and they stop answering and they start not adding up. Never send money and make them feel bad for asking this of you or they will beat you down. Glad I found this spot to post. Also face book users, face book is a networking site not a dating site. But they will say they saw your pic there. Be careful that they are not contacting your contacts for money ad advised by you. They will immediately post in relationship with you so to open up your contacts. Be careful ladies (and men)
  • Does anyone know a person named Rob Maxwell? His email address is robmaxwell@ymail.com. claims he is in London. Has had two emergencies with his son needing surgery on his head twice.

  • Thanks to this website I read someones post about Tami Kiefer and it was exactly like my story....same inconsistent story and cities, etc. BEWARE!! kiefert65@yahoo.com


  • 419 Aussie Lioness vs Nigerian Lion Romance Scam? On the verge of all out mega mugu cyber warfare a Voice of Nigeria speaks out at; both sides in this mugu tale claim to be mugu! Both sides percieve the otherside as the mugu-hunter! One claiming that their dollar might be exploited and the other their manhood exploited. Who is the mugu? Aussie Lady or Nigerian Gent?

    Romance scam? A man from Nigeria accused of being a romance scammer claims to be ignorant of how the Internet works other than Facebook, email and chat. He would like his view of the situation to be made public so that the argument is not one-sided.

    This is a unique video as instead of having a mugu hollering 419 in cyberspace we now enter a new generation when those accused of being romance scammers actually are coming out of the woodwork to have their videos made as part of the Mugu Media referendum.

    This is one of many videos where those accused of being mugu-hunters can voice their feelings, opinions and suggestions. There are many different types of mugu-hunter that wish to share their experiences ranging from confessions of a midnight mugu-hunter to those that percieve themselves as suppliers of dreams and magic services to rejuvenate and exhillarate not romance scammers or 419ers.

    From the bowels of Bangkok the first in this mugu-hunter tales mini-series has emerged and a new form of defence is being adopted. Nigerians have learnt that videos and blogs are being created which they claim tarnish thier sacred image and so they would like to have blogs, sites and videos to enable them answer the moans of mugus. They would like to beg scambaiters to stop being jokers and destroying their industry, they would like to explain how God is punishing the greedy and that they are just a smaller part of the system trying to manage their lives as best as possible without stealing or dealing drugs. There are others that would like to thank all their mugus who were so nice and friendly and for their kindness both when chatting and donating to the poor and the needy. There are those that are innocent and who would like to curse both the hunters and the hunted. So folks you have heard what the scammed have to say for themselves prepare to enjoy tales from the other side.

    Watch Chidi give his confession and judge for yourselves, read the blog http://www.9jathailand.blogspot.com/ - is he a poor Midnight Cowboy as he claims or is he a Romance Scammer?

    He also claims that he was lured into long wet wet weeks of hot steamy saucy choco-vanilla passionate sex by the promise of an Australian visa. After nights of mounting his lioness expensive hospitals with cute nurses were he claims required to treat his withering member with creams and lotions. He further claims that his girlfriend proudly called him her "African Lion King" due to his highly acclaimed Valentino skills on the mattress.

    When full payments for services provided were not forthcoming the accused by Aussie mugu-hunter claims that he is the real mugu who was scammed into providing cheap services only for his Aussie girlfriend to leave him for other Nigerian lovers whom she dated for quite some time before coming back to allegedly blackmail him through knowledge of his Nigerian girlfriend in order to get a refund which Chidi sees as pure exploitation because it would mean that he would have sweltered his mugu marathon sex sessions only to become a mugu himself by having to pay Advance Fees to the nurses for the lotion treatments. Due to potential HIV risk Chidi sees bareback riding very dangerous and as such certain danger premiums should also be paid to help keep the service clean and exclusive.

    Please feel free to discuss your feelings and opinions, was Chidi jealous that Solomon stole Kerry-Anne from him, that perhaps Solomon was a better performer? What arouses Chidi's feelings is why Kerry-Anne paid numerous other Nigerians cash over a long period of time and then come back and as he sees it blackmails him.

    Who is the real Mugu?

    Real 419ers in Bangkok are very intelligent suave and sophisticated people who usually drive nice cars, always have lots of cash, they like to wear designer clothes, crocodile boots and real D color internally flawless diamonds, they reap in masses of big time mugus in their cybernets. Chidi however met his Aussie Lioness face to face and his situation was a disgrace. Real 419ers have young Aussie girlfriends and lots of money to show them a good time, Chidi had all the signs of being far from a 419er, he had no cash, cheap clothes and without the brains of a 419er - or is Chidi a genius who acts poor with his secret Swiss bank accounts? In one breath he would like to see himself as a Midnight Cowboy hustling a honey but in another states that his inibility to perform cunnilingus may have been a key factor in his so called buddy Soloman stealing the Aussie Lioness from the African Lion.
  • My sister probably saved me a lot more heart ache and trouble. She investigated a guy I met on face-book because he was making arrangements to come spend New years with me. I was seriously starting to fall for this guy called himself Wayne Bill, a brother calls himself Bill James. The brother in communications who I felt compelled to believe because he claimed to be an American soldier serving in Iraq. They backed up each others stories, there may even be an on line girlfriend of the supposed soldier working on me.Wayne professed him love early on but I bought it. The men claimed that their mother was Nigerian and father American. They were born and raised in NY. Both parents died in car accident many years prior and all they have is each other.The Brother has a listing on his Profile about his lonely brother,wishing he could find his love.I communicated with both men. Wayne said he wanted to marry me and started calling me honey and wife and calling my 2 young girls his kids."how are my kids today, honey" We spoke once briefly and his accent was soooo thick his voice didn't match his photo. We IM several times a day and night. There is a girl who may be being scammed or may be working with them I wont mention her name in case she is innocent. She was a semi jealous girl friend of the brother and I friend-ed her and explained that I was interested in the brother Wayne not after her interest Bill James. We visited quite a bit too but now I am not convinced she may be the same person as the proclaimed brothers. They really convinced me of who they were and to this very moment I ache a little at the thought I could be wrong about them and lost the potential love of my life. They had not asked for money yet, I can see that they were laying the foundation for it. I would have bought in hook line and sinker. I am a poor single mother but I am kind and generous to a fault and probably would have sent him some amount of money had they got that far. This is sad. How do I report something that didn't happen but probably would have had my sister not showed me this site.
  • i've got one he is from Facebook...his email is daniel_jones197040@yahoo.com..girls n guys pls beware with this guy if he want to be you friend..because he is very sweet talker..pls..pls beware he will make u fall in love with him..and tell that he will come to you and give you a lot off stuff and want to married you all that...using fone number ++447031887824, ++447513109338 and another one is +3563079916873...

  • Hey ladies, I am from nigeria, I am not saying these men r right, but please ladies, u don't need some one to tell u these guys r up to no good! Its common sense why would a guy from nowhere ask I for money bcos he had one accident or another! Has he no family members or friends around to ask of that favour? Why try to send someone u don't know such amount of money, please b weary and keep ur money in ur pockets!
  • Well Ladies and Gentlemen, my story goes a bit deeper than most. I had an ongoing relationship with a man from Match.com for a year. After a year, I asked him where he really lived. I knew he spoke a form of Yoruban and I sensed he was Nigerian. It didn't matter to me because I had totally fallen in love. After a year and a half, I flew to Nigeria and spent a wonderful month with him. We decided to get married just before I left. When I got home, it just wasn't the same...we had spent all my money having a good time, the economy went down the tubes, he agreed not to do any more fishing on the dating sites if I could support him. I supported him until I ran out of money. I told him that the time has come for me to put my house into storage and come live with him while he finishes his education. He panicked and I have not heard from him for about a week, just before Christmas when we used to talk every day....I sit here and cry almost every day. Our plan was for me to go there and live in the apartment that I leased for him, spend 6 months and then bring him back home to the US with me. He is either a very good actor or something is really wrong...I hate to think that all the love, devotion, marriage, and talk of having a family was all fiction...I knew that he that he moved because I paid for it but I don't have his address and he lost his phone, so it just rings and he has not responded to any messages to his friends or IM...
  • i think this is the same story, i've got one he is from FB, his email is daniel_jones197040@yahoo.com or georgeobrian@yahoo.com to all the girls pls beware with this man if he want to be your friend at FB or YM or if wants your phone number cos he is very sweet talker.. he will make u falls in love just in a few days and tell he will come to your place everywhere u are live and give you a lot of thing like jewelry gold diamond etc and want to marry with you.he always call honey, babe, sweety, and my wife to us. he using the phone number +447031887824 (just for calls) +447513109338 (just for SMS) and another one is +60103682412 if he tell you he is in Kualalumpur (Malaysia)

    just putt all the info here to make sure everybody beware don't be his victim
    thank you
  • I am sorry that you fell into his classic Nigerian 419 trap. Do not fall for it again, you got off cheap. Move forward, don't look back. I do know exactly who you are talking about, I have seen him on numerous sites where they fish for women like you/me. Learn from your mistakes and be grateful he did not talk you into selling your car or your home to help him.
  • I've seen this about David Hunt http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6566&start=30 I can't see anything about mine, Kelly Samuel, I found his photo on that site, but he told me that his photos where stolen, that he is the innocent. I don't know what to think please if someone finds something about him, send me.
  • Dear Dorcam

    Please can you explain who you saw on that particular site was it d hunt or is it Kelly Samuel?
  • about David hunt I saw some reports if you check it out. about Kelly Samuel I found his picture on the same site I gave, but I didn't find his name.
  • I am insecure as many of the claims made, relate to my experience. Yet, my guy communicated by webcam also. He claimed to be going to Iran than Nigeria on business. Then he contacted me claiming he was abducted from the airport, being held hostage & the kidnappers keep emailing wire transfer documents for 50,000 to be sent to a bank in China. Is this a scam, or could he have actually been kidnapped. He is still on my facebook, email, yahoo mail etc. But, has not had contact with me in days?? He sent me an email with his lawyers info to get help, someone claiming to be his attorney replied, claiming to be in another country & demanding to know my realtionship & involvement with our mutual friend, then never replied again? Where do I go from here????? I did contact the authorities, desperate to insure his life & safety. They laughed, advising me to delete him? Could you if, if there was any chance this actually occured and you may be his only lifeline? Has anyone encountered this. He is Swedish, living in the Uk, had his (daughter emailing me & sending photos etc). How can you find out if someone exists? I met him regarding a business endeavor.
  • Have any of you heard of Michael Stanford? Mic_stanford44@yahoo.com He was supposedly from Topeka, Kansas. Left very soon after we met on match.com for Egypt to build gas stations. We have been communicating for over 6 months, until 2 days ago. He took me for ALOT of money. I can't even face how much. I grew to trust him. I had him totally checked out by a P.I. & took every precaution. I just have felt ill....totally sick inside. I am dis-abled....was NOT looking for a man. I am scared that he is just GONE now.
    I have to send my daughter to college next year. He claimed he is a civil engineer. I had been quite ill & went thru a big surgery right
    before he found me. I just feel lost right now from the shock of what might be taking place in my life. How do you get through this without wanting to just exit life? All of my money is now gone. How do you cope with the loss & the guilt??? CC
    alwaysvanilla@yahoo.com
  • One more thing about Michael Stanford. On Match.com he went by iremainmike, He asked me to turn off my profile after we talked for a few days last July. We both turned off our profiles. He called me & sent me the most gorgeous roses before he left to go to Egypt. He has a French accent & says that he was raised in Toronto, Canada.
  • I had to go back and look up this Michael Stanford's name on Match.com. I am NOT a member of any site. It was a free period when I just happened to meet him as I was exiting off.His name on match.com was iremainstillmike so beware if you run into him. He's GOOOOD. I haven't gone on another site since then. I don't trust anyone.
    UPDATE: He called me at 5am this morning...from supposedly Egypt again, but the 234 area code is Nigeria. Still claiming that because of the uprising over there, that he's stuck & can't get his money out of the bank. I told him too bad for him, he'll have to find another sucker. He called back at 11:30 this morning again wanting to discuss it further. I told him I KNOW what he is. It's pointless to talk further because I'm NOT sending him a dime more. He said he wanted to talk to me again about it later on....forget it. I know he's not intending to pay me back & I told him I know it. He's HEART-LESS. Totally heartless. He has used 5 different phone numbers with me now. 3 of them within just the last 10 days. Something is up.

  • People please, i know love is a very sensitive feeling but at the same time its good to be very observant. I am a Nigerian living in Lagos, and I am proud to be a Nigerian. My country has a population of about 150 million people so you can expect to have an handful of bad eggs in that, but that doesn't mean that we are all bad people.
    Falling into a ditch might be allowed but falling into it with both eyes closed is totally out of this world, i am not blaming anybody for falling in love and for being so caring but please be guided in what ever action you are taking.
    The bottom line is DO NOT SEND ANY BODY MONEY FOR ANYTHING, NO MATTER HOW TOUCHING THE STORY MIGHT BE.
    If you are into a relationship of that sort presently, demand for video evidence of the person's existence and of any sad story he might bring up. No body can love you as you would love yourself, so always look out for your best interest first, DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE SCAMMED.

    i can not really say enough.
  • *WARNING* I encountered this man on a social music site : Jango.com. He contacted me and said his name was Christopher Bundly. He added me as his friend and other ladies ranging in age : 33 to 49 I was wary and am always watching scammers as I know how they operate.

    I'm an attractive former model the age he says he is. Why he targeted me I have no idea. On my profile I have I'm Native American and I am also half French. Perhaps he thinks us Native Americans are pretty and stupid.

    He gave a story his wife died four years ago on her way to see her parents in France and his twin brother also died. He claims he's French and lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania however is working in Algeria.

    We spoke on the phone, he gave me a number and I traced it to a Nigerian number. 2348169339929 When we chatted online on yahoo which is a new account created January 15, 2011 that was red flag everyone. I wondered why a man almost 46 (says his D.O.B. is: 02-16) would have such a newly created e-mail and wondered what he uses or used prior.

    I told him when we chatted, you sound Arabic not French and that I have lots of Arab friends, I do. And a few French, he does not sound French, trust me.

    Lo and Behold it took me only about an hour today after he quickly got off Yahoo chat when I mentioned Nigerian scammers. Finally I found the photo he used on his Jango.com account he contacted me from. After reading on this very well informed site I'm glad I found. He has it posted on everything from Match.com to Myspace and Yahoo. UNBELIEVABLE !!!!

    He's carried on this "Farce" with me for almost a month. Hasn't asked for money and won't now, he knows I'm on to him. I heard the I love you etc. and today, I received a lovely poem he no doubt copied and pasted.

    Please ladies and guys to check out this link. Not only does it have this man's photo but all his aliases and e-mail addresses and Nigerian phone numbers.

    He told me he's in Algeria and had been there almost three months. That he travels a lot and would like to go to China next. I'll bet he's travelling all over the world first class on innocent peoples money living the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

    Click on the following link, it has a lot of information that is helpful in catching these rogues. There are women listed on there too for all you guys. They list Russian scammers also. Apparently the Russian want in on the action and are giving the Nigerians a run for their money.

    If you have any questions or information regarding this man, let's stop him everyone as it's one less. Please contact me.

    The link to him and site with up-to-date information :

  • I met this guy on Christian Mingle. Says he is a football/soccer scout. Sent me an e-mail in December telling me how pretty I was, but I dont have any uploaded pictures there. He disappeared for about a week. When he finnally contacted me again in January he told me that he needed 10,000. To go and get a loan because due to inflation he needed to pay mor for recruiting the boys from a team. Says he is in the UK, over the course of 2 weeks he lowered it to 5000.00 the 3000.00. Now wants me to send money to this guy named Victor, then last week he asked me to send 300.00 to a Andrew Rogers both from Nigeria. Says as soon as the guy gets the Western Union that he will be on a flight home. I traced his IP address to Sunnyvale California, then from the UK. He says he is from Lafayette Arkansas, no record of him there. His email address that he is using is sweetkeith_w@yahoo.com. He asked me to remove my profile, when asked a few days later why he went back on his he said he had dome documents to find that he put on there. When I started asking questions his profile disappeared from Christian Mingle. The phone number he was using is 011-44-704-571-5627. He always blocks the number. When I try to call it says it is not a valid number, when asked about it he says the phone is broke. He slipped up and called me from a Nigerian number of 234-9060659339. Does nayone recognize this guy?
  • Greetings Jeanne,

    Your story sounds so similar to those I've read about on here of the IP being traced back to California.

    A few months back a close friend of mine met a man online and said she was moving to Texas where he said he owned a nice house. He went as far as sending her flowers, candy things for her children etcetera all to build and establish rapport thus woo her in the trap of the scam.

    He sent checks giving her a sob story he could not cash them and needed her to in turn send money back to him in the country he was in, not sure what country.

    Of course the checks she found out were fake and no good. Only after she'd gone shopping (he including a little extra $$ for her, how sweet :-/) for herself and children, her bank contacted her... One check was for : $ 1,500.00 & $ 900.00. That is a lot for a single mother and it's a lot period for anyone. One dollar is too much to lose to these crooks.

    She was fortunate and her bank informed her she was a victim of a scam and did not charge her for the checks. However, someone picked up the tab. When these scammers whether they are from Nigeria or "Ten-Buck-Two", we all pay in some shape or form it falls back on us. Could be in a subtle way like prices going up on something (taxes, inflation health care, food, movie tickets for example).

    I don't care what "woe-is-me" story someone gives me, I have people I know that I love and care for, my family and friends I'd rather assist than a stranger I've never known in person that is most likely a thief in a far away place.

    Everyone on here are smart people else "we" all would not have wound up here. Some may have lost money, some not. However we are being well informed and educated in the art of how to "spot and catch a thief." We are doing something about it too making it harder and harder for them to steal.

    The Internet is a wonderful way to meet new people, find old friends and family perhaps find love. I know many legitimate people I've met online. Just please, let's all use "Due Caution" instead of throwing caution to the wind.

    Have a Wonderful Week Ahead Jeanne & Everyone.

I searched several pages and no data, any informations.I have two different photos , can anyone help? Now, It has stopped writing, but I think in a few days comes the demand for money. Thanks Vera ( veluli2rou@yahoo.com)
  • Hi Ladies & Gents, I think you'll like my little story. Not easily taken in and probably too suspicious for my own good, you could say that I sort of led him on a bit to get to the 'big money question'. I met my 'Sea Captain' through PARSHIP (have since reviewed my 'compatibles' and he's in there again under different profiles - twice!). Probably not the best marketing for a dating website. Anyway, he's 44, widowed, got a son of 6 - Michael, lives in Aberdeen and he's recently flown to Beijing to bring back 'his oil tanker' to Liverpool. All goes well until his ship runs aground and gets boarded by 'sea pirates' (are there any other types!). They shoot his crew, but not dead I hasten to add (phew!) and hit him over the head and put him and his son ashore via speedboats. Luckily they don't take his cell and a kindly local soul called Benjamin has taken them in. Now, the money that his friend Richard sent has since been used up on hospital bills, medicine for Michael, McDonald's because Michael can't eat Chinese food and "I've thought long and hard about this, can you send me US$1500 through Western Union". He needs to get back here so he can report the attack to the British authorities (I fear for the lives of the crew and all that oil as it's over a week since the attack!). After numerous txts telling me to 'sort this out myself and not involve anyone else' I told him as I had work, I'd get my brother to sort. That did the trick so now we're at the 'I won't ask you for money ever again, I just want your love' stage. Touching. Ladies, be warned. Love doesn't have to be paid for. No self-respecting man would ask a woman for money even in this age of equality. Don't be taken in by the flowery words and poetry; oh yes, I've had it all including undying love. Don't get me wrong, my friends and I have had an entertaining 6 weeks playing along but having read the stories of money being handed over and 'lost loves' it somehow doesn't seem that funny anymore. Don't let you heart rule your head. AND let's not be taken for mugs. If alarm bells are ringing - listen to them. You can trust your own judgement. Now I'll go and report TTBP to the authorities. For your future info, he goes by the name Jody Smith and say's he's South African. capjs1313@aol.com. If you come across a profile that involves water,sea,ocean,sea captain,vessel operator - move away. Don't get fooled. Ciao.
  • Hi all, I have to say i love this page. But i am looking for some help. I met a guy who says he is from South Africa but was raised in U.K. When i spoke to him on the phone he has a very strong accent but i dont know what it is. It just all seems too good to be true so i wanted to check it out but not sure where to go. Many similarities with stories i have read here. He says he is a widow..lost his wife and two daughters in a plane crash. Has one surviving son. Is an engineer based in manchester. Is in dublin at the moment as his father used to own the zulu land and he passed away so he is getting hi inheritance. It sounds far fetched to me. He hasnt asked for many yet but im very cautious as i am a single parent. I have tried goole for info but cant seem to find the right place. I want to check his phone number cos like a lot here it starts with 447. Can anyone direct me where i can check. I have spoken to him on cam but i want o check it out..i figure better to be safe than sorry. He started proffessing his love the frst time we spoke which raised a flag. I have been very careful not to give too much details to him. I dont have any money to give anyway but dont want to have my heart broken again. Any advice of where to look would be greatly appeciated or anyone heard the same story? Blessings!!
  • I just need to know where to search if people are real or fake. I put his 'name' in google but so many hundred comes up i cant go through all of threm. This page is so worth while. Thank you to everyone who is adding names and emails so we can all keep watch and keep safe.
  • ok...am update for you all. I am now convinced he is a scammer as tonight he asked me for 5,000-10,000 dollars so he could have his inheritance released. The stories i ahve got from him are so over the top it was obvious but i was playing along to see how long it would take for him to ask for money. It was a total of three weeks. Please be warned. He goes by the name Kelvin Robert..his email..robert.kelvin@yahoo.com His number is 44701423802 He says he is an engineer working in Alaska but is based in the UK. He says he has a son Peter aged 14 who lives in the uk. His story is he was left a huge inheritance by his father who at one time owned the zulu land. He can not get his inheritance until he is married..oh and he says he is a widow. Wife and two daughters dies in a plane crash even thought he doesnt look old enough. We chatted on cam so i thought it was ok but the story was too far fetched and then confirmed it tonight when he said he needs all that money so he can go to India and spain to claim his money then will tranfer into my account. Im not that silly but wanted to put a warning out there to others. Thanks for this page.
  • IVE BEEN SCAMMED,BY A GUY CALLED JOHNFUWAD,DOES ANYONE KNOW HIM??SAME STORY LIKE MOST OF YOU ON HERE!!.I WAS ONLY CHATTING TO HIM FOR A PERIOD OF 2MONTHS,HE TOLD ME HE WAS FROM HAMPSHIRE,ITALIAN BORN,FALLING IN LOVE ME ,WANTED ME TO SEND HIM £300 POUNDS OVER TO HIM FOR HIM TO GET BACK TO THE UK,HE ALSO ASKED ME IF HE SENT ME A CHEQUE OVER OF WOULD I PUT IT IN MY ACCOUNT,TO CLEAR THEN SEND IT ON TO HIM ETC....I TOLD HIM NO WAY..SO IF ANYONE GETS THIS PLEASE DONT FALL FOR HIM I NEARLY DID BUT THE PENNY DROPPED WHEN HE ASKED FOR MONEY..HE WAS ON GDFF JOHNCOOL AGED 49 GOOD LOOKER BUT IT WASNT REAL!!
  • I thought I'd add my little 'tips' in case any of you come across my 'sea captain' accosted by pirates! He purports to be South African. Father a drunk; mother left him as a kid. His young son is 6 yrs old with child-hood asthma called Michael. Originally from Jo'Burg but now in Aberdeen (UK). He rang me a couple of times and his voice wasn't SA but they ring through Skype and after ringing on 3 separate occasions and just managing to say hello before cutting the connection I told him not to ring anymore unless he was prepared to have a 'normal' conversation. You'll like the bit about him having a parrot named "klhoe". It took him 6 weeks to get to the 'big money' question. Although he did test the water with a request for an O2 'voucher' - I assumed that was a 'top-up card' - needless to say he didn't get that out of me so why he went onto something a little larger I'll never know. Tip Girls, try not to associate the picture with the texts/emails you get. Once you start separating the two it makes more sense. If you can drive a truck through the stories then it's probably a scammer. Little bells started ringing for me in the first email and they just continued to ring. It's quite disconcerting because some of the emails were written with reasonable grammer then up would pop an email clearly written by someone who's 3rd language wasn't English! The pictures lure you into a false scenario. IM "jodsmi1313@rocketmail.com" or "jodysmith19" or +447784823148. A mate at the gym had read a book by some American guy who stated that they will continue the scam, reducing the amount everytime, until they at least get a quid out of you. I called a halt to my 'entertainment' when he kept insisting I "sort the payment out yourself honey" or "and please do it yourself" and "its best you help sort out yourself".
  • Beware of "Desmond Gallo" - from Match.com. Said he was an orphan from Italy, living in Humble, Tx, wife died in China or Hong Kong, working in in Oil & Gas.. 1 daughter going to school in Liverpool; also, he went to school in Liverpool.. some messages had reasonable English grammar but others appeared to be written by someone with less English language skills.

    Said he was working in US on a "blue" card.. all the real people I've actually known were working in US with a green card.

    When I asked for the name of this "orphanage in Italy" - got no reply.
  • Someone who know the name Mathew Braun. He says he is from UK working in ivory coast or nigeria as a soldier. No family no friends a lot of problems with tickets etc.
  • I man who goes by the name of Mark Santa will swoon you over and over with his smooth words and beautiful writing but will scam anything he can get out of you. Claiming he is stuck without $ and has NO FAMILY or anyone to help. Claims he will get home soon to marry you and sweep you off your feet. Claims he has been mugged by Nigerian Oil Pipe Workers, Stuck in Premier Inn in London and that was a "court" order to pay for his stay until he gets to cash a $336,000 check and he will repay ALL that he owes. The check supposively is written by Bank of America and Mark cannot cash until he gets in the states. Now back in Nigeria and supposively "living" in Parkland Hospital In Enugu State. I can keep on and on. He has all these other men & women helping him scam thousands of dollars and then he keeps claiming he is sick he feels like to kill himself. DO NOT MESS WITH THIS MAN HE IS A HUGE LIER!!!!

Howdy, Stranger!
