Dino Gergory, first saying he was Dino Greg, and then on being challenged with inconsistencies in the pictured document said there was an error in his name - but didn’t say what that was. Never did explain the ridiculous value recorded.
Generally used the usual scam tactics. The mark never took the bait on a couple of implies of his needing help, so no money ask was ever made. (eg: sick uncle, wanting to move uncle).“Stuck on the rig” and “money all tied up in this project” lead-ins were starting.
The mark caught on and made a few challenges that received aggressive responses. Contacted Petronas ethics division who were genuinely interested that their company ID was being inappropriately used.
Did have two pic of ‘Dino’ that were used but have inadvertently deleted. Did not show up on reverse image search.

Used Tinder to meet, and almost immediately went to text/email (ghost IP for Tinder location as undoubted was never that close to the mark geographically)
Really didn’t know much about oil rigs or what an engineer on one did considering he was supposed to be a Drilling Engineer.
The document isn’t very well done, but it was interesting to discuss it with the mark. It was ‘in confidence’ and not to be shared (so, was very reluctantly shared). Surmise it was briefly looked at while discussed over text with ‘Dino’ and then closed since it was ‘so very confidential’ - since it wasn’t scrutinized.
There were even a couple of Skype conversations. Very poor quality video that kept freezing, though voice retained. Many methods to simulate a poor video call
Good news is that she’s a smart lady and knew some things weren’t sounding/reading quite right- so she asked her friends to check what she had. Emotional turmoil painful, but no money lost.
