James Burton 62 Younger James Burton

James Burton, says he is an Oil Rig Contractor out of Brighton CO. He has a son named Lane and is a Widow. Has an accent that he says is Dutch. He was born in America but raised in Europe.

He has 2 looks that he uses on Facebook with slightly different profiles. One is a man with a closely shaved head about 45 to 50, a baseball cap and beautiful hazel eyes. I think he uses this one for the younger women. Both I believe to be the same man.

The one I know him as is a 62 year old man with long silver hair that he frequently wears in a ponytail. He sent me a friend request, and normally I reject requests that I don't have any common friends with or know. However he had a smile and light in his eyes, and I thought it was God's way of helping me find someone so I took a chance. We hit if off, amazingly we had a lot in common. That is an easy one to do if you get the info first.

He knew scripture and we had lots of debates about traditional Christian vs new thought Christians (me). At first I was hooked but there was so many warning signs it was hard to not get suspicious. The phone numbers and ways of contacting each other constantly changed. When we talked the connection was always bad. Easily explained by being on a rig right...it just didn't ring true.

Also answers about his son were evasive and didn't make sense. The scenarios he painted of our life together never included his son. I think he has access to this boy if he is not the parent because he can provide many pictures. I did searches but found nothing about this man. I even told him he would never get any money from me, of course he was offended and hurt that I would think such a thing.

He said God was good to him and he didn't need a woman's money. I so wanted to believe, initially I ignored all the warning signs but I soon started to play to game, and I needed to convince him I was madly in love with him so he would make his play so I could be sure because I was falling in love despite my fears.

Finally I guess he thought he had me hooked so he pretended to be upset so that I would ask him what was bothering him. I played and got him to say he was worried about a big payment due soon that he wasn't going to be able to make. This from a man that said he was well of and would never need my money. Well needless to say I ended it.

But it didn't end there and like a dummy I thought I could reach him on a spiritual level...wrong. Then I ended it again after he refused to open up to me about who he really was, silly me for thinking he would. But yet again like a dummy I responded to him when he reached out again saying he couldn't get me out of his mind. I said he had to come to me after his current job before I would believe him but would let him try to win me back.

I guess that was too difficult for him so it didn't take long for him to ask for money again to replace lost heating blankets that got lost in the storm and was putting his crew in danger. He couldn't report the loss for fear of loosing the job and then would not be able to come see me if I didn't help.

This time I blocked him.

I believe things happen for a reason. I needed to believe I could love again and he helped me with that. I stumbled across this website so I believe I needed to post this information for the next women to find. When you do, walk away from him. Know that all you need is the love inside you.

Cultivate that and the right true person will find you.

James Burton is not that person.

Told me he was called Dave McClean with a son called Chris. And yes lots of photos. Lots with him and a young boy. Never got to money stage as I rumbled him too early. He was so offended I would suggest he was a fraud. What a loser and actually sick

He went by the e mail thmgrf400@gmail.com

You were smart to block him as there are so many they are like cocktail roaches and they breed faster than we can turn them.

I wish you the best you are not alone.

I'm sorry you went through this experience Diane. I too believed that my 'scammer' was sent to me by God, he was the answer to a prayer I had made to God long ago after my divorce.

I know now that this was not an act of God. You sound like your faith is very strong and you are handling this as well as can be expected.

I wish you luck and hope that all goes well for you.
