Eng. Lahm Lisbig

(Arizona, U.S.A.)

I was contacted from Christian Mingle.com. I had experience in the past of someone messing with my profile after they were given my email. I would not give that to him so he suggest we communicate on Yahoo.com.


All he had to say seemed very real. He was working off the coast of Australia on an oil rig. I tried to verify this with the Australian government and got nowhere. It was all very impressive. He had a bio on official company letterhead and had a crew of 20.

I was given pictures of his house in Manchester, England, his deceased wife and his dog. I am a trusting person unfortunately. He was to arrive in the states on July 4 at such time we were going to get married. However, because of security, he could not send me a current picture of himself. He was making me a part of his Krag Oil team so he needed pictures of me with my passport, driver's license and a current utility bill with my physical address.

He did ask and I sent him by wire to a U.S. bank $8,200. Several weeks later, he asked for more. All valid reasons so I thought. My friend was visiting her sister on the east coast who is a website designer. She took Lahm's email and discovered the IP address was from Nigeria.

Fortunately, I did not send anymore money. I called my bank where the wire originated and the bank where the money went, $8200. Several days later, I received my money back.

I was one of the lucky ones.

Lahm still persisted in asking for money. It ended with him telling me he had my information and he was in my backyard. I was also told to call 911. I sincerely hope this experience does not come back to bite me.

Meanwhile, I have talked with the FBI and AARP.

I don't have much hope these people will ever be caught.

My suspicions were correct!
by: Anonymous

I was also contacted by this man. I became suspicious and asked Christian Mingle. They removed his profile that day.


I was then contacted by another man who has a very similar story. His emails resembled the Lahm's.

When I asked Christain Mingle, that profile was also removed.

Lahm Lisbig and Marriage
by: AnonymousThomasisha Skelly

Hi,I too was contacted by LAHM lISBIG with identical propositions....He was working off the Western Australian coast, I happen to live in Western Australia and he promised me marriage in early July and all of the same comments.....

When I refused to send money he switched off and I haven't heard from him since....

I did check the scammers list at the time but this name hadn't gone up then......

I ALMOST believed him and his approach was so romantic ,I nearly fell for it...

I hope they catch this animal and soon

To Margar

Hi Margar! I am so sorry to hear that you are a victim of the scammers that constantly troll the Internet for unsuspecting people. I have had hundreds of them try the same trick on me.

The first clue is the way they spell, they don't capitalize where it's supposed to be, and they ALWAYS tell you they love you within a few days.

They always want to talk to you on Yahoo or Messenger. I am happy that you got your money back, and it is sad that too many people fall for their lies and tricks. If in doubt, ask them for their home address, current phone number, and their social security number.

Guarantee that you will get none of these, then you know that they are lying to you. Just keep passing on the word about these scammers and how they go about doing it so that others may not become victims as well.

Good luck to you!
