Bryan Hudson aka Darren Ricardo Wayne, Engineer, Independent Contractor - Reno/GOM

The person I've been communicating with for nearly a year tells me his name is Bryan Hudson, formerly of Scotland, Baltimore, Dallas and now Reno. We've had a few phone conversations and hundreds of texts/emails.


When we first began talking he was excited about a project in the Gulf of Mexico and he was waiting to hear if he was chosen to travel to GOM to present his proposal. We had planned to meet, then the word came through that he was to travel to GOM to present his proposal, one of five contractors.

He said he was on Blake Rig 14 and he was presenting to a Scottish company (didn't give me the company name). He said he was awarded the contract but then was disqualified because he lacked certain IADC credentials. After that, he was "stuck" on the oil platform. He said there was a fraudulent transaction on his bank account in April 2015 and his internet banking was shut down.

He said he had money to pay me back, but can't access it from the oil platform. He's needed money for certifications, renewals, seals, chopper fees and more recently, a helipad fee. To this point I've paid all but the helipad fee.

All this time he has said there is much he needs to tell me, about himself and his past, and he would only do that in person. Like I said, we've exchanged hundreds of messages, all geared toward being together when this is all over in the Gulf.

I've done searches through google images and have found a few FB pages and LinkedIn accounts with his photos. When I called him out the FB page, he said it wasn't his profile (but was his photo) and he reported it to FB. I also discovered other sites with his photos and when I called him on that, he said he had used the user name "Wayne" for online dating a few years ago. I hadn't given him the name I'd found and the dates (2013) matched.

I'd performed searches for this type of scam before (yes, it was in the back of my mind that it may be a scam) and found nothing, so all along I thought I was doing the right thing by helping this person. So glad to have found this site! Has anyone else out there encountered this person or a similar story?

If he was reported to EHarmony what would they do? They probably have some policy about going off their website or something. This guy sounds like a piece of work, disappearing with no explanation. For those that have actually met him face to face, what does he look like? Is he even attractive? What is the big draw?

I don't understand how men can treat women sometimes.

This is sad and need to be reported to Eharmony. We met on Eharmony, and he disappeared after our first weekend together giving no reasons for his disappearance.

No contact and not a word from him. Neglecting emotions isn't the best thing to do no matter the tragedy that took his wife.

So sorry for what happened
by: EVELYN Gail...canada

I myself was conned by another person. You need to tell yourself this man is not real and keep saying it until you accept it.

Then you need to understand that he is a lier and you really do not want him in you life. Please go out and meet a man you can touch and look in his eyes.

There are good men out there and they are not on the internet.

I Wish you a safe journey in life.

Bryan is heartless
by: Mary

I was talking to the same person some months back and he asked us to meet half way, and I wish we did, but then he didn't not want anything to do with me.

I think he is just after physical appearance, and he hurt me a lot because I was starting to fall in love with him.

How can he tell me he wants to be with me then we meet and he does not reply to my messages or phone calls anymore.

Who is Bryan or Darren?
by: Anonymous

Yes, I am texting and talking to him now. He has asked me to meet him. We met on eHarmony. Just like reported he said he has a lot he needs to tell me.

Is he dangerous?, he also told me he was from Scotland. Currently in Reno and a Geologist by profession. He says he has been alone for years and had lost is daughter in a tragedy that he still can't bring himself to discuss.

I even asked him if he was Catfishing me and he implied that hurt his feelings and he would never do anything like that...

Should I notify the police, eHarmony, or do something before someone gets physically hurt.

I could really use some help, please, I'm shocked, afraid and confused...... please)
