Nigerian Dating Scam - I've been there

by Catherine
(Sheffield, UK)

I am a widow and after just over two years my friends told me to try internet dating. As I was in my 40's I thought I would join a site for over 40-plus dating which you pay a subscription for and I thought would be safe.


I started chatting to a guy who said he was english born but his father was american. He was working for the united nations as an orthapedic surgeon which I thought was a bit of a story but I went along with it.

We were chatting for a few weeks and he suggested going onto messenger as it would save money on subscriptions. He told me things like he was also a widower and told me about his wife etc. This went on for 3 months.

I gave him my mobile and he rang me each evening and we would chat for 5 or 10 mins at a cost to him not me. He even rang me when I was on holiday in Spain. When I came back we chatted for another couple of weeks and then he asked me for some money so that he could home and we could be together.

I was so gullible for the love but as soon as he asked me for money I cut him off completely. The best advice I can give you is if anyone asks for money or your bank details to transfer money into - cut them off totally and report them to the site you originally met on.

I also did some checking on other sites and also facebook and reported him on each site in a hope that nobody else can be conned by him. But I will say if they sound too good to be true cut them off and don't even say anything to them just get rid of them as soon as possible for the sake of your heart and in a lot of circumstances your pocket.

They pretend to be soldiers, working in Pakistan and also in jobs that will pull at your heart strings to make you fall for them as soon as possible.

Please take this warning and be very careful and forget about how you feel when you find out, and get them reported to whoever you can.

Palmer Federico UN orthopedic surgeon
by: Anonymous

I seriously believe this is a dating scam. Says he is an orthopedic surgeon working for the UN and apparently lives in Toronto. Says he was born in Italy, moved to Canada Alberta at 11. Parents deceased, no siblings.

Very suave, wants to come to Vancouver to meet, says he will fly this weekend. I talked on the phone to him, and he wanted to Skype but his camera was broken so I can't see him.

Red flags galore. Won't take photos or video chat and hold up ID or utility bill with name on it.

Dr. George Dave Osbourne
by: Anonymous

Does anyone knows a person or rather say Dr. George Dave Osbourne a orthopaedic surgeon in Damascus Syria. He asked for friendship on Facebook and for some reason I accepted him, and it was so strange cos I don't normally accept friend request from strangers, anyway I have accepted him, probably because of his looks, and in No time he told me he loves me and he wants to come and marry me.

We then open private hospital here in SA and he can't wait to have kids with me and he wants twins. He is the only child his parents died when he was young, he was raised by his uncle, his wife died 2014 since then he never dated anyone because he was still grieving for his wife.

The problem started when he wanted to send some gift, and I agreed on that, but the next morning I received a call from a lady claiming she is working at the receiving (courier) my parcel has arrived, and I must clear it, so to clear my parcel I will have to pay R7503 so when I told my lovely husband that I don't have that money he was angry, that's when I knew he is not real.

Ok I was so much in love with the very handsome white doctor my heart was stolen but not my money, so ladies let us be very careful.

Watch out for this guy. I met him on Bumble which seems to be full of scammers like this.

Said he was working for the UK in the Philippines, was from Glasgow, lots of lovely messages to hook me in, ended up saying he was stranded in Amsterdam and needed money from me to pay excise duty and customs taxes.

Then he would be on his way to me, and he'd pay me back straight away.

Clearly a scammer and one to avoid.

The internet for dating was great at the start I think.

Now it's full of the underbelly of society that use it to lie and deceive to get money from naive women.

Take care ladies!

Received a friend request from this guy on facebook. Had a quick look at his profile, good looking fella so accepted but went ahead with caution.

Instantly he messaged me through messenger. He claimed to be from Switzerland but has been living in the USA for near on 10yrs. He is supposedly working for the government in Syria with UN troops as a medical doctor. I was very skeptical so went along with it for now. He asked me to tell him a little about myself so I did. I wanted to know a bit about him, so asked him. All I got was that he had a son. Nothing about a wife or ex=wife. He asked me for my email address so we could keep in contact because of our time differences. So I said ok & sent it to him. Mind you at this point in time, I'm getting gut feelings something isn't right.

Before I even recieved an email, I tried to google this guy but found nothing. I once again checked his facebook profile but went a bit more indepth. Only pics of himself, no posts. So I dug deeper. Lives in Ghana, went to some Education uni over there. Dug further. He likes men & women plus she is happy in her own body....yes I said "she

My instincts were going crazy, so I have an email ready to send at just the right time so I'm going to string this mongrel along for a bit.

I did recieve an email from him/her about 10 minutes after giving him/her my email address. I cracked up laughing because my suspicions were correct. He said he was madly in love with me, wanted to marry me as soon as his contract is finished in Syria etc etc.

My reply was short and simple....."yeah sure, why not, what have I got to loose." He was very happy with this answer. Funny thing is, I haven't heard from this person for almost a week now so haven't sent my readied email just yet.

Good luck ladies, hope you all find true love

I have been talking to this man who says he is an American Doctor working for the United Nations working in Syria. I should have known better than to believe him but I did. He said he could take a vacation but I had to apply for him and pay the processing fee. I told him I did not have the money and he is still talking to me trying to get me to send money so save him because he says he loves me and if I don't he will post pictures of me that I should never have sent him on the internet to embarrass me unless I send money to get him home.

Not sure what to do or how to respond. Any one else have this happen?? And if so how do I deal with this and find out who he really is so I can stop him from hurting anyone else

Two can play
by: Anonymous

I'm sorry for those people who actually sent money to someone they met on a dating site without doing any research about that person. I have found it to be quite entertaining to play along until they finally ask for money. ...and they all do.

If they are claiming to be a United nations doctor then they don't need money for a passport. Usually the real doctors have no problem getting back to the states when their tour is over. There's also a database of doctors on the UN website.

Most of the doctors are listed there or you can ask the State Department. I can vet these people out pretty quickly by asking them for a few pictures of them working with villages or visiting local sites. I have friends who are there and I guarantee they all take pictures to eventually hang in their offices when they return.

A lot of them take pictures of themselves in case they come up missing. A recent picture can be quickly circulated to locals and troops to get them located. I know it's a scam but it is fun to see just how long you can keep them strung along.

Roland Bulawa claims to be UN Baghdad Medical Specialist
by: Anonymous

Roland Bulawa claims to be UN Baghdad Medical Specialist and sends me a friend request on Facebook and I accepted. He told me he wants to be my friend and I greeted him and asked which country he is from and where he works. I only learnt today that he claims to be a Medical Specialist at the UN Baghdad. I asked for his mobile number and he provided a UK number.

I told him instantly you are a fraudster and a scammer. You want to steal from women. As I checked on his name under UN Medical Specialists I told him that you are not on the list my friend and this brings doubt that our friendship will continue. So finally I have blocked him. This is what he wrote "i am working ask a Medical Specialists here in Baghdad and this is my +44 7700 305893". Ladies has Baghdad turned into UK? Beware! Rest you love a wrong person and lose your money. These people sends a friend request with a fake profile and you check the number of friends they have you even won't find any and even the photos are one or two only. There is not much information on their wall.

Have just looked this up. I had a Ben Carson orthopaedic surgeon based in Syria on messenger. I didn't fall for it and just let him think that for all of about 15 minutes. Now blocked. It takes alot more to try and pull the wool over my eyes.

He has a Facebook page but nothing much on it, and says he is a widower and working with the United Nations, however the only person by this name I could find was a black surgeon / doctor and his wife was very much alive and well and well, so just take care of who sends you a message

Be careful of Barry Brown
by: Anonymous

A man by the name of Barry Brown came on my Facebook request page and when I accepted this request and he sent me a message on Messenger. While chatting I realized he was a scammer. Claimed he was Irish from Dublin, Ireland and is a widower, wife died 8 years ago but he said she died in 2006.

I carried on the conversation and when asked his profession said he is an orthopedic surgeon working in Libya with the UN. Fake again. When asked to tell me about himself it took a while before an answer appeared then when asked about his son he was schooling, questioned him if this was boarding school? He said oh yeah???

Questioned about his son and holidays he said the son stays at the teacher around the corner from the school. Then asked how long his posting in UN was no answer. He then said he was tired and gave me an e-mail address to e-mail him.

The conversation finished and I just googled to find no such person as a Doctor in the UN and I have lots of friends in Dublin who never heard of this human.

I automically cut him off my social media.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THESE SCAMMERS!

Don't Fall for It
by: Anonymous

I just had a run-in with this person. He went by the name Jeremy Stewart. Claimed to be a UN Orthopedic Surgeon in Kabul. Said that he had been divorced 7 years, and had a 10 year old daughter in Turkey named Kathy. Claimed to be from New Jersey. The profile didn't add up.

Claimed to be a surgeon, but for school it had Paul Mitchell (that's a hair salon). Also under Contact Info it had /irieme.nehitha. I called it out, and immediately they changed it to Jeremy.Stewart9876

I believe we're the numbers -- before I blocked this person. I looked up Nehitha Irieme on Facebook, and she is Nigerian. I sent a message to her asking if she knew Jeremy Stewart. Needless to say, I got no response.

Scam by UN surgeon
by: Margaret Powell

I've recently met a UN surgeon online. Been speaking since 13 July. But it's really a girl in Africa, and think it's a network of people. She gave me her bank account details. She is still pretending to be a guy.

I have her photographs and a list of aliases she uses. I saw babe photographs of the surgeon. I realised it was bogus but reeled her in for a while.

Who do I report this to?

I'm not as stupid as he/she thought. But I'm cross. No money passed from me to them. I received a strange phone call one evening from an African man, one of the scammers.

I think this guy needs to know what is going on and these people need to be caught.

Orthopedic surgeon
by: Anonymous

I as the others on this page, have been approached while on a group site designed for Genealogy. At first the conversation was normal; where you from etc. After a twisted escapade of 2 min dialog, I have reached the same conclusion as the others here.

1. Orthopedic Surgeon, working for the U.N. in Kabul.
2. Orphaned, at birth and then by adopted parents
3. Raised by Priest
4. Lives (no answer)
5. reference to Dec. (looking for a home)
6. stated wife took him for $348,000
7. Has 15-16 year old son

The list goes on..

Clue's, messages lack consistence. I don't know any surgeon with grammar or spelling issues. And, he could not answer any reference to medical term, he'd brush over the topic.

Last week I was on my FB and on accident I accepted a friend request. I meant to hit the delete button. One of the things that I do when I receive a friend request from any male that I do not know is I look at what they have posted on their page and if it is just a few pictures, no photos, no mutual friends, no other postings or other friends I hit the delete.

Within about 5 minutes of my accepting his friendship request he was blowing up my FB Messenger. He sounds just like all the other scammers that are showing on this site. He posed as an Orthopedic Surgeon, stated at first that he lived in Miami but then quickly changed it to being in Kabul with the UN.

RED FLAGS jumped at me.

A quick search of a few websites really put even more red flags up for me. He then sent me a picture of his son aged 13, with a story that his wife died of breast cancer 6 years previously.

More red flags.

When I ended the conversation that night he was wanting to go to another website to talk. I am not the most techie person but another red flag went up. Then I got some more pictures of flowers and I decided to cut it off completely.

I am so glad I did after reading what has happened to other women of my age. Please be careful don't lose your heart, or your money to guys like that.

Currently talking to me but I've known from the first sentence that it's a scam. Claims to be UN orthopaedic surgeon stationed with US military at Edwards Air Force Base, Lancaster, California. Widowed since 2009 with a 12-year/old daughter at an international boarding school. Father is deceased, mother has Alzheimer's and imaginary child does not see imaginary dead wife's family as wife grew up in an orphanage. Well, of course she did.

Talking about setting up private clinic when his retirement papers are signed in approximately two months' time. He was talking about a relationship and true love within 24 hours of first contact.
He contacted me randomly on Facebook's Messenger - I'm not on dating sites at all.

There are two other FB profiles with the same name, none of them have any friends. I did a reverse image search of the photos he has sent me privately and they are images of a Canadian actor. God knows who the kids are, they don't have any matches on Google.

I have reported the profile to Facebook. He has already suggested that we move to Hangout and has sent me a gmail address for himself, now wants me to set up an account and is asking if I have a pet name or nickname.

I am screen shotting all the messages and have been sharing them. My friends are hanging themselves laughing because I am claiming to be useless with technology while I wind him up. It would appear that I have suddenly acquired an ancestral home in the family for sixteen generations.

Stay safe, ladies. I'm a cynic and I check everything but I can see how someone at a vulnerable time in their life could fall for this crap no matter how sophisticated or intelligent they are.

Remove personal details from your public profile and report anything suspicious. Anyone genuine is not going to be offended by you investigating and doing the due diligence.

Dr Karel Milan from New Jersey
by: Anonymous

Hello, I have been involved in a dating scam similar to what others have written here. The man claimed to be a paediatrician. He was religious and very charming and respectful and understanding in his messages.

We met on Tinder and then began messaging on LINE and What'sApp, and at times we talked on the phone. He referred to me as his queen, his lady and rare gem. He claimed to have been divorced 5 years ago and that his two girls lived with their mother in Michigan. He sent me photos via email of himself and his daughters.

The man in the photos is very attractive and obviously the subject of identify theft. Karel claimed to work at a private clinic in New Jersey - Policlinic. On closer examination I realised that the website for his workplace looks fraudulent.

His Facebook page was also very sparse with no friends and only two work related photos. He said he was working on a project delivering medical equipment to start a hospital in Papua, Indonesia. He asked if I could send 30k as there were issues with customs clearance.

Fortunately, I awoke to my senses when he asked for money.

I was corresponding with him for about a month and then just in the last day he asked for the money. I hope this gives others some idea of the amount of time these scammers are prepared to put in to suck you in before asking for money. They are very clever and will make you feel adored, loved and appreciated.

If it seems to good to be true - it is!

That is the lesson I have learnt.

Oh they have all kinds of situations that arise & need more & more money. They want to live a life with you when they get back to the states & love you & take care you forever.

Started speaking with Peterson on FB only yesterday and then he switched me to hangouts because of security reasons. This is his story:

Head surgeon of the military department at United Nation Peace Keeping Rescue Mission and General Surgeon at UN World Health Organization. Lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Widowed, has two kids 15 and 17 Vitoria and Kelvin.

At first, I called the University of Wisconsin and he was not on the alumni. I confronted him and he got angry. Very smooth, but he is a scam artist. Stated that he is 58 and is in Kabul, Afghanistan waiting to retire and marry a beautiful woman to help raise his kids and open a hospital and shelter for homeless kids.

His kids are with a caretaker in DC and his home is in Madison WI. He originated from Germany but could hardly comment on Germany when asked. He said he couldn't video chat because his life may be at stake. He sent several youtube love videos, very respectful and can be the man you dreamt of having in your life.

He professes to be a Christian, that is where he got me but I also told him that I am praying to God to reveal him to me. And then I found this website.

God is good and His mercies endured forever.

Don't be scammed - test the spirits.

Amen.

He contacted me on Facebook. Says he is 43 and has a 10 year old daughter in boarding school. Says he's an army orthopedic doctor in syria. English is broken thru his text. Says he needs to be married to leave there. Did not send money. Was Leary. Now I know he's not real and I am deleting him. He sent a picture of him and his daughter. Her English is off too.

Continue about Dr Destiny Gilbert
by: Anonymous

I forgot to mention in my previous post that he said he was retiring. He is 56 year old. He is 5ft 8 likes music, art and fishing. He liked all the things I liked. He said he was going to build a hospital when returning home and that we would relocate from his home in Virginia and wanted me to pick out the location.

He said he was going to do some surgeries but hire a doctor. He wanted me to come live with him and work with him and that we would be married. Of course, I believed him because I was looking for love myself. I'm 58 years old and had never experienced anything like this before. I would wake up at 12:30 and 1am every morning talking to this guy because Yemen was 7 hours ahead of my time.

But things changed in August. He changed his status on hangouts so I wouldn't know if he was online and then he tells me his account was hacked and don't reply to his old email because it would mean his death. So he directed me to another email but same hangout.

I'm still confused about that when I got a big time scam from his old email. He was very upset with me when I replied that the person using this email was a scammer. He had me confirm with him that I will listen to him and that he still loved me. So now today I have broken all communication with him on hangouts.

He may have broke my heart but I will recover. I will never trust anyone online again. I still think he was romancing me to get more money from me. I think he came up with the fake excuse to get me to send an email for emergency leave and then I know with my heart that there is money involved.

Ladies beware of this scammer using this name. I fell in love with his words and a picture of him on Facebook. He would not do a video chat or a phone call all because of sercurity reasons. The more and more I think about all this It doesn't make sense.

I think the man on Facebook has had his identity stolen. I sure wish I can contact him somehow and warn him of this. The Facebook page also has where he attended several medical colleges. The thing is he was so convincing on everything. He did ask me to help pay for a package that his deceased mom left in China to be held for him.

He wanted me to pay $6700 to the Republic of China to have this package transferred to my name and sent to me and have me put it in a safe deposit box at a Bank of America. He said it has $877.000 gold jewelry in it, a diamond ring and personal documents. He would give me the code to open the package to pay me back the money once I received the package.

Of course, I didn't. He said it was alright that he would find another for the sercurity and trust company to hold it. And he still loved me anyway. We were very strong into communicating but only with words and in early August, conversations were getting less and less. But when he did come online it was always still the same conversations.

But now I think there are two scammers using the same name. The two conversations have been totally different from before and the Grammer and spelling is beginning to be bad. His excuse is the reason why he don't communicate everyday that there has been many bomb blasts in Yemen and he has been very busy taking care of people.

I ended it today. He has asked me for money three times in 4 months and I know he was going to ask again because it does say online they ask for you to help with leave and then you have to pay upfront fees and travel expenses.

I wasn't going to let him get that far with me this time.

Dr. Destiny Gilbert
by: Anonymous

This man friended me on Facebook back in May. We have been talking 4 months. He said he has been widowed for 18 years and that his wife died at childbirth and that he has a 18 year old son who is in the military in the UK. He claims to be a surgeon with the Marine Corp in Yemen but he is a medical doctor working for the United nations in Yemen along with the troops on ground in a war zone.

Very nice looking man. We got to know each other pretty well. Well about the 3rd week in he needed $500.00 for his 18 year old son in the military to help pay for something. But I can't remember what it was. He told me that the Mastercard he sent his son wasn't working for some reason in the UK and that his son could straighten it out with the bank. So would I please help and send his son the money to the UK.

I was hesitant, but did if anyway. He has been seriously romancing me for 4 months now on hangouts. We use to talk every morning for 3 months and now the conversations are about twice a week. We'll I get a message that he needs me to email his General so he can get a new emergency leave so he can come home and be with me and provide and protect me and love me forever.

He always calls me his Treasure and His sent Angel. Well this morning his words were different. And when I told him I was not sending money for his leave money he had me email Gen.edsonty@usa.com so I did just to see if any money will be involved and I'm pretty sure there will be.

When I confronted him that he is a possible scammer he said he would never scam me and that I have no trust in him. He told me his age, height, his likes and where his home is which he said is from Delaware but his home is in Norfolk Virginia.

I have pictures on Facebook that match his description. But he has no other friends on Facebook and claims to be a Christian. He would always say every morning Good morning my treasure and God sent Angel. I just finished my morning prayer and want to spend time with the love of my life.

He is always telling me wonderful things and how we are going to meet at the airport and how nothing will ever separate us. But he did take nearly 1 month before confessing his love for me. I'm pretty sure this guy is not the real deal. He just pleaded with me 3 days ago to never leave him because without me in his life he Could never have a life without me.

He would always tell me that he cherishes and adores me and how much he is in love with me. Like I said, I'm going to play his little game then block him altogether.

This person claimed to be an orthopaedic surgeon. Pleasant looking man. Contacted me on Instagram and within a day, he was in love with me and I was the woman he had prayed for all these years.

He was a widow of 18 years and his son is in England with his sister-in-law. Not wanting to give a lot of information but does let you know he has money and wants to buy you things, etc. Calls you My Queen, my love, etc.

Pretty smooth character. Not real. Others have the same story. Whoever is in on the scam they pretty much stick to the same story, dead wife, etc. Money and promises of a rich future, etc. Just a scam. Many others on this site are saying the same thing.

Story doesn't change much.

Orthopaedic doc working for UN in Iraq .uk born lived in USA most of his life. Daughter in boarding school Thailand. 17 years old. Long marriage. Divorced. Due back to uk oct 2017 after 4 years away. Birthday 8th October will be 50 years old. 6,4, shaven head, cool dress sense.

Images I've had sent are one with a little boy looks like they are in a camp or similar, one with striped shirt and funky oraage lens sunglasses, posing with a husky in the snow black and white shot and after I pushed for more a pic of him sat on the bonnet on a white sports car.

He hasn't asked me for money. He's told me he loves me and sends upteen love quotes, YouTube music videos and lyrics which were getting annoying to be perfectly honest. Promised me Paris when he was back. Broken English and not always understanding your comments were red flags and I even pulled him up on it - you don't get answers. I've seized all Communications with him after I discovered this site and saw his name on another post and similar BS story to someone else and I sent a message to him when was the day you were going to ask me for money ?

But he talked about how lonely he was for the past three years since losing his wife, he has no family, his accent he claimed it was French but it was a very strange combination of different accents. He said he belonged to a particular Clinic called the Watson Clinic in Lakeland Florida. His name is not among those listed.

He wants to open a medical clinic up in New York.

So called independent contractor in Brussels,
Half british/half american. Came to brussels to explore new grounds (civil and petroleum engineering). Talking for about 14 days on whatsapp, was his major dream to get the 'Lifetime Contract" in Brussels,

Shortly after the upcoming presentation was in Poland, Warsaw, he left his 'briefcase' in the taxi with passport, credit cards and documents. It was stolen. He was gonna lose the contract and was all the time worried and 'in pain' and 'hurted'.

I asked him if he needed money, of course I was not gonna lend him any. He said at about 1500$. Then I pulled away. I asked to call him via facetime/whatsapp. He didnt pick up the phone.

Reminded him about his stolen iphone, this was a 'backup' phone, with no camera on the front. I asked for his FB, it "hurted" his feelings, my
Lack of trust he said.

I said goodbye. He begged me not to mention his name anywhere.

I have got him on hangout which is something like messenger.

Have only been talking about three weeks and he say he is due to leave Syria at the end of September and wants to come to the UK to meet up.

He then wants us to get married and for me to move to the states (Alarm bells). One comment says he talks sweet nothing's to you but never mentions your name and this is so true of this guy.

I would just like to say thanks all for the comments I have read and they have confirmed my suspicions so now I can block him and start to get on with the rest of my life.

Goes by heartpeace1 on Instagram. Ortho Doctor in Syria, then suddenly deployed to W. Africa. I figured he was a scammer right away, but played along for a few days. I asked him each day in a different way if he might be one of those people I had heard about. He assured me he would never.

He was just a good guy who was looking for a woman to spend his life with. He claimed to have been badly burned trying to help a little girl who turned out to be a suicide bomber. Both parents killed on 9/11. Sent pictures of himself in the hospital right after the accident, complete with him holding up newly awarded Purple Heart.

Of course you could not see the name on the certificate. Fell in love with me on the first day. Was afraid I would not love him back because of his scars. Never asked for money. After three emotional days of love and devoted attention I pulled the plug and reported the jerk. To steal the identity of a war hero makes it even more vile.

They always want to go offline off the dating site, for example use "hangout".

Veggieconnection encourages users to contact via that site for a while so that an administrator monitor exchanges of messages. BUT!!! the messages are gone. They don't store for certain period. Initial contact and message are quite important when you report to an authority. In this sense, that site contribute to perpetrators' and scammers activities. I advise ladies to copy or photograph the contents.

Veggieconnection introduces highly sophisticated techniques: e.g. hide the profile (not being viewed from other members) while still able to search and check members' profile. Those arts are ideal tools for predators. We don't need such service, but need enough storage to save messages.

A few days ago I got a Facebook friend request from the above person, and as I only have family as my 'friends' and am a retired female, I thought it very odd that a young good looking guy who is young enough to be my son would want to be friends on Facebook.

I have had various bank scams on my mobile which I didn't fall for, and now we have these low lives at it.

Having a suspicious nature anyway, one of the first things I asked him was where he was.
Reply was 'From Holland but now in Syria' On asking him what he was doing there he told me he was an orthopaedic surgeon.

I then left him to it, telling him I had other things to do with my time. But I will be back on Facebook tomorrow. He asked me what I did for a living, and I will be able to tell him 'Retired Police Officer' who enjoys a challenge, and found your website which is very enlightening.

Yes block them, report them if you can. I guess this guy thought he could find sympathetic women on a vegetarian dating web site. These guys are everywhere just trying to get money out of women. They prey on loneliness. Get a pet. There are a lot of pets that need good homes, and you won't be lonely.

Vegetarian sites are safe for predators compared with PlentyOfFish, Match.Com etc. Less risk to encounter honey traps. The problem is veggieconnection introduces too many sophisticated tools for the site; and the predators can search prey (usually newbee on the site) while they are not searchable or viewed from other members. Besides, the site owner cannot/does not take action against dubious members.

We chatted for many days, with the first few days he told me that he had been at the United Nations, but he can't use his bank account.

Hmm I thought, but I kept on talking until last week he asked me for a "favor" and I asked what kind of favor.

I told him if it is money I think you are barking up the wrong tree as I told you my only source of income is my SSI, OW. He said you could help me, with some money as I need food and meds, I'm dyeing in here, but I just say sorry, I blocked him from my POF account and that was the end of my romance.

He sounded so sweet and gentle and spoke very nice and I guess I was falling for him. But one thing I could tell everyone is .. the only guy I will give my money is to my son, he is the only man, that make me smile and cry, broke my heart, but when I look in his eyes, I still go crazy, I love my son so much.

Orthopedic surgeon in Syria
by: Anonymous

I met a guy on an online dating site and he said he was a doctor and he seemed interesting and we were messaged on WhatsApp. From the beginning I felt as if something was off but I couldn't pinpoint it but just had that feeling.

He told me his wife mother and son were in a car accident ands his son was the only survivor. His father died later on but his father was Italian. His English was very broken, his grammar was off and he kept making the mistakes of people that don't speak English very well.

I'm surrounded by people that don't speak English very well so I am able to notice these things quickly. He told me he had serious feelings for me, and he would buy me a house and he couldn't wait for me to tell him I loved him after 2 days mind you. Yesterday he said he lost all of his iTunes music he said. This morning he asked me for money on an iTunes card and I said nope I just felt as if it was off.

He got offended when I stopped replying and said I didn't want to talk to him anymore when I was just working. I tried to do a Google Image search but nothing comes up. All I have is a cell phone number and his first name is Richard.

I met him on POF AND also I went looking for his profile and it's been deleted which is another thing that I found strange.

Is there any way I can find out how to report this?

Working for the United Nations in Bagdad Iraq. Gave me the name of the hospital etc. When I tried to google him absolutely nothing came up. Then when I read the information on here I downloaded the UN list of Doctors. Surprise surprise there was no doctor under this name.

Thank you to all you ladies out there that have shared their story's, if it wasn't for you all I would still be talking to the Worm!

Eventually I asked for proof of who he was, hence he did not like it and shortly after that and I when I had not responded to him he gave up.

For being a smart women she sure is being stupid. I do not know what else I can do to help her. Guess I will just leave it alone and let it happen

Ambrose Judson is not real
by: Melissa

I watch myself on social media. I frequently would get Facebook requests from gentleman members of the military, however, I limit my Facebook to only people I personally know. Other social formats we need to share something in common. Along came Ambrose Judson.

I don't usually respond to the men's hello messages they love to send, but he was a doctor. He seemed harmless. We interacted a few days on Instagram and then He suggested the move to Hangouts. He didn't say much about himself other than he was from London, he had a 13 yr old daughter and he was a widow.

From the start something seemed off.

In am pretty fluent in British English and many of his saying were off and sometimes I would type messages clearly and he would misunderstand. It was 2 days into chatting that an account with a similar name liked one of my pictures. I searched his name and found 4 Ambrose Judson accounts. I searched the internet and came up with 2 Facebook accounts.

I questioned the Instagram accounts, but held the Facebook accounts in my pocket. Each account had some more info to help me with the stories he was telling.

He loved to post some of the loveliest sayings. The first one took me by surprise it was so beautiful. I will admit I was flattered. The second one I decided to query on the internet and sure enough both were on a site for romantic things girls want to hear. I'm thankful I didn't completely fall for this and also felt bad for whoever the real person was in the picture.

Interestingly enough with the help of Google I did track this guy down.

The real doctor is from Poland. I have emailed his office to alert them to the stolen pictures. I have also reported the Instagram accounts and Facebook ones too. The UN also has a list of doctors that people can download.

I hope this is helpful to someone.

Tell your sister to go to google images search and take this guy's picture and upload it. She will see he has a bunch of phony names..............They all do.

Ask her to read this site and see how similar their bios are.......usually widowers, usually Drs. or engineers or medical personnel, usually have a son or a daughter in a "boarding" school or college.

Help her access the fraud sites. Appeal to reality. Does it make sense that someone is in love after a week or a few days? Does it make sense that someone would be asking them for money? She may want it to be true, but these people have many women that they are scamming at the same time.........And, have her notice how poorly they speak English or whatever other language they are communicating in...........

Guy claiming to be in Dutch Army working with UN
by: Anonymous

My sister was contacted by a guy either thru Facebook or Yahoo by an guy named Jean Lauwens who has been in Kubal in Afghanistan supposedly to be a general in the Dutch Army working with the UN.

He has created quite a story saying his wife died in a car crash and has a son in school in Canada that was in March. After about a few weeks he was in love with her yeah ok not. But any way he sent her a form to fill out for UN saying that he needed $2000 to give to UN so he can get his vacation time and money owed to him for 3 yrs. She has not sent him the money as she does not have it even asked me if I could help her with the money.

He has her so brain washed she believes everything he is telling her. Has anyone else been contacted by this email address

If you scroll down this page, you will notice very, very similar bios. Oh, it may change by country, but many of these are Drs or Medical personnel and many work for the UN. NONE of them work for the UN. NONE of them are Drs or medical personnel. NONE of those pictures they send you are real people.

These are all fraudulent identities with pictures of people who have been stolen to use in a scam. Ladies, I had one try to scam me with pictures of a Russian TV personality...................I never gave him money and terminated the chat.

There is this Dr Harsha Kumar, born october 10, 1980, both parents died, uncle in spain took care of him and he has nobody. he claims that he is from cedar city, Utah. Will go back and start his own medical practice and also open an orphanage.
he doesnt do video calls, whatsapp, skype but only messaging on hangouts supposedly due to restrictions when working as an orthopedic surgeon in the UN.

When questioned more about his job or if he doesnt get his way, he gets slightly angry bordering rudeness. Gets pushy at times also.
I checked him on Linkedin, he has an account there but with zero connections. Nowhere else on social platforms or wont trace him on looking up on google. He is nowhere listed on the UN doctors list either.

My uncle is very old now and he has no child of his own. I'm everything to him despite he is suffering from Esophagus cancer. I did some part of my schooling in Spain and USA. I created my matrimony profile recently because I want to get married and have a family of my own. I want to spend the rest of my life with someone who is friendly, honest, caring, trustworthy. I`m philanthropist, athletic build, mentally stable, physically fit, a bunch of laughs, warm, caring, honest, a good listener and a positive person. I am real easy person to talk to and a loving guy. I enjoy playing keyboard which i do often at my leisure time. I like going to the movies, or watching movies in my room or Cabin, I like swimming, listening to music and dance to any kind of music, I sing, traveling , going bowling and also a good cook. I am a family oriented person, love kids and there is more, but it would be better for you to find some things out for yourself. I saw your profile and i like it. It is very important for me to build a life of stability, security, and opportunity for the special person I hope to share my thoughts, feelings, experiences, dreams and fantasies. I am really interest in wanting to know about what makes you the special person you are today, I want to know more about your family, your background, your life experiences, your goals and dreams, your interests, and anything else you want to tell me. I even want to learn about the secrets you very rarely share with someone!. So come on and share it all with me, as I am not here to talk to you about general things such as partying, the weather, sports, e.t.c. I want to learn about you and what makes up your heart and soul happy as the friendship I want to build with you, I want it to be like no other you have ever shared or experienced. This friendship I want to build with you will be filled with substance, quality, spirituality, love, faithfulness and potential.

Dr James Collins
by: Anonymous

I posted here online to see if anyone had heard of Dr James Collins, an orthopaedic surgeon in United Nations ukraine. I had my doubts he was real but nothing came about.

I continued the conversations and after 7 weeks he eventually asked me for money to get home!
It transpired he was not real. He said his team could not get home because of Donald Trumps cut to United Nations Fund meant the new team could not be deployed. Apparently his director could arrange a flight and get him home if he could pay, that's where I came in, or not!! I refused.

He said he was divorced half Italian with 2 children Who lived with their mother in Swansea. His parents were dead, died in a car crash together. He said his wife cheated on him with his best friend. He began to get angry when I started to ask questions but would change the subject.

He wanted to marry me and buy me a huge diamond ring. He had a large house with swimming pool in Swansea. He wanted to take me to the Maldives!

Please please don't fall for this guy. I totally and stupidly fell in love with this nasty person who just wanted my money. Fortunately I didn't give him anything and it came to a head when I found him back on tinder with a slightly different picture.

He also says he can't get to all his money because he had to freeze his bank account because his ex ripped him off before.

A charming sleeze bag.

Dr. Robert Moore Bays is still scamming
by: Anonymous

Daily romantic messages, talk of unending love and plans for an amazing future together, interspersed with emergency needs for money, starting with the desire to give toys to the poor kids in Yemen and celebrate his birthday, and increasing in amount and in frequency demanded from that point.

He has photos that seem to substantiate what he is saying--including a picture in uniform with a label that says "Dr. Bays" on one side and "Captain" on the other, photos that appear to be of him as a handsome young man interning with the UN. Says he is a widow with a son, Alvin, who is 17 in boarding school in NYC, but studying in England this summer. Some scams center on his son.

Most of his words are charming, though he has a pattern of speech that does not correspond to that of a man who reportedly was born and grew up in Austin, TX. On hangouts when texting he makes many unusual grammatical errors. On occasion when he doesn't get his way, he displays anger bordering on threatening, but attributes it later to stress and apologizes.

Ladies, he can be formidable when he gets his hooks in you. Exit quickly. Don't wait around to be scammed big time.

Pretty big sob story about he lost all his belongings ("stuffs") in an explosion and needed to replace his clothes etc.

My antenna went up when his language changed, and fortunately found this site. I also checked the phone number (539) 888 4581 which comes out of Tulsa Oklahoma.

Fake persona -Aseem Baldev

Hi Friends, I have met one person on gujarati bharat metrimoney site, his uncle ravi chintan sent interest on me by saying they are interested in my profile, I am an unmarried gal and his nephew is working with the un army in turkey Syria war zone as orthopedic doctor.

One day his uncle called me on my mobile number by saying for marraige purpose he want to discuss with my parents so that things can be worked out, and he said you can chat with my nephew on hangout id : Aseembaldev2077@gmail.com,

I started chatting with him but after that Aseem said he wanted to come and meet me because he is in love with me ...i said yes come as whats the problem with that, but he said his account is blocked because its a war zone so nobody can access their bank account, and his allowance is not sufficient so he cannot buy the flight ticket from Turkey to India.

Initially I was fooled by his love, and he demanded 1000usd, and also provided a third party account number by saying conversion rate from Inr to Turkey currency is high so better credit amount in person (agent) account. That agent he said was working with them, but when I checked his account out it was from Mumbai. I was a fool so I transferred 1000usd.

After 3 days he said I am so happy because he is coming to meet me and all and he is going to meet the commander for the pass out process and leaves, and they are demanding 3000usd to grant leave and replacement, but that time I was shocked because I dont have that much money to help him.

When I said I dont have the money then he said please take a loan. And I discussed with my friend and they said don't do that with this guy because he is scammer fake.

When I said no for the money, after that the guy stopped everything and emotionally blackmailed me.

Please any suggestions about this guy as he has deleted the matrimony account and is only contactable on gmail .

You will not find him on the UN doctor list, and ask him what state he is licensed in and check that state's website. You will not find him there either or in any US state because this is a scam.

Doctor working for UN in Yemen?

My cousin was contacted on Instagram by a "doctor" from NY who is practicing in Yemen with the UN. They then started messaging on Hangouts. It's been 3 weeks - he's madly in love with her. He said his wife died in a car accident two years ago and he has a 13-year-old daughter in boarding school in Texas.

He asked my cousin to send "her daughter" a birthday gift - $1,000!! He said she should because she will be her "mommy". My cousin refused. Then, he started asking for ITunes cards. She finally relented and sent him a $50 one - he wanted $100.

Then, he asked for a $150 one. Now, he's asking for $1,800 for a flight so he can fly here this weekend and meet her. He said he's leaving Yemen even though his so-called contract is not up yet. He wants to build his own medical practice here.

His posts seem like they are from a Hallmark card, i.e. cut and paste. He goes by the name Dr. William Kelvin Gary. He asked my cousin to send the moneygram for the $1,800 flight to Theresa Robinson, Austin, TX.

His pics look like a model - early 50ish, graying hair, handsome. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Been contacted by a man through match.com He says he is a german orthopaedic surgeon working for the UN in Damascus. Goes by the name of DENNIS STEFAN. Being a pessimist I searched the list of Doctors working for the UN and suprise, suprise he wasnt on there.

Did an image search on his picture and it comes back to a plastic surgeon working out of Beverley Hills. I challenged him over this and asked for some proof and he got very angry, however all I did was laugh at his inability to spell or phrase in English.

I have reported him to Match.com and sent an email to the surgeon in the USA telling him his image is being used illegally. I think it's good practice to do an image search if your'e wary of something that sounds 'to good to be true'

2) They are highly educated but their English is very broken

3) They will be in immense love with you in just 1 or 2 conversations

4) They will generally call you darling, sweetheart, princess...because they already have ready made messages which they can forward to many without making changes

5) They will get angry if you ask them to send any identity proof

6) If you search on Google with their name or email id.. you will rarely find anything because they operate with fake names and usually fake profiles.

In order to help everyone people can post their photos, emails and phone numbers so everyone will be aware of such fraudsters.

Amol Chintan - Orthopedic surgeon Canada - Fraudster
by: Anonymous

Hi All, A guy named Amol Chintan's profile is updated in Bharath Matrimony site. His uncle Ravi Chintan posts this interest to me. I am a widow of 36 yrs age and have a son. Amol says he is 31 and never married and shows interest in me as I am experienced and mature. They claim roots are from Gujarat India but they are born and brought up in Canada and wants our roots back in India.

He says he works for UN forces in Turkey in a military camp so cannot access a phone. Chats on Hangout only.

This email ID is amolchintan123@gmail.com and his Uncles is chintanravi@yahoo.com.

Canadian phone no. is 001-587-317-5782.

He plays very gentlemany and decent over the chats. Says he Loves me and "I'll place no one above you darling" that's the sentence he re-iterates... I kept checking his ID on social medias like Facebook but no luck.

Finally I checked his ID with his photo and he is a completely different person. His name is Omar Faiad and he is Al Jazeera TV Channel presenter... A fraudster.. Guys be aware.


He has not asked me for any money yet though...

But you never know his intent...

It is funny, all these guys say they are Doctors or Orthopedic surgeons. On some mission and of course they are widowed. Of course they have a kid somewhere. They always want to go offline off the dating site, for example use "hangout".

Don't fall for any of it. This guy has a picture posted that did not even match his profile!!

He wrote me and note the English language is always "broken" like they cannot write one complete correct English sentence.

Yes block them, report them if you can. I guess this guy thought he could find sympathetic women on a vegetarian dating web site. These guys are everywhere just trying to get money out of women. They prey on loneliness. Get a pet. There are a lot of pets that need good homes, and you won't be lonely.

At least that may help until you find the right person!!

Good luck.

Sorry ladies, all of these men are scammers. Been there, done all that. Please for your own good, discontinue contact. They only want your money and will tell you whatever it takes to get it.

Cut off all communication, change email address etc. Whatever you do, do not respond and when they realize they cannot get any money, they will go away. I am speaking from experience, and I had to learn the hard way with a huge financial loss to me.

I am fine now, but it took a while .

Dr James M Billy (name doesn't seem real)
by: Anonymous

Same story; Italian born doctor in Syria, working for UN; brilliant 14-yr-old son in college in NYC; wife died 3 years ago of breast cancer. He knows I'm in TX and he said he spent three years here. I've told him that I'm married and he continues to write me.

He only contacted me a couple of days ago. His description of himself is obviously copied and pasted (probably 100s if not 1000s of times). His picture is of a strikingly handsome guy with black hair and a beard. At first, being 52 and married for a long time, I was very flattered that he was interested in me so I indulged in a harmless flirtation. Obviously I had my doubts because I went looking for and found this site.

Be careful out there ladies! Emotional scamming is bad enough but do not let anyone scam money from you!

Run! Run like the wind from anyone using this scam to lure you in.

He said he loves me soo much that he wants to meet me and anyhow wants to meet me and need me to help him to come to me - said he is used all his money for the Indian visa hence wants me to give money for the ticket fare Rs 65000 ie $1000 - I am 27years age and he says he is unmarried 31 years boy - roots are from India but born and brought up in Canada.

Hence ladies thanks for the post - I think I should beware now

States his name is Colonel Christopher Lastochi.
Based in a Syrian military camp as a Orthopedic surgeon.

States his wife died almost 4 years ago with his daughter in a tragic accident. Which is kind of morbid if that's untrue. States his son is in the UK and a boarding school.

I'm not sure obviously it feels uncomfortable and I'm going to go with my gut and not keep responding to him because he is sounding too good to be true.

Cant believe I googled' Donald US Surgeon' and this link came up....he's now got a 7 year old daughter called Sherry who he has told about me after a week and he's madly in love with me!!

He has sent loads of pics of the little girl....poor child, I wonder where he got the pics from.

Apparently he's moving to the Uk in June when his contract ends in Syria to 'buy a big house and build a hospital to do surgery'. He gave me a text book list of what he does and I pulled him on his grammar, he said he was just really busy ;-)

I never got a surname.... but he asked me to get Viber app to talk to him on. I can't upload a pic but he's blond (lots of hair) and looks the age he says 55....although I told him he sounded really young when we spoke!

I've been chatting with a Japanese/American surgeon who is supposedly with the US Military based in Syria. Said he's been there for the past 18 months. Only after 2 days of chatting he started professing his feelings to me.

I found this rather odd even though he seems to know what he's talking about...medically I mean. He didn't speak much about the site he's based at.

Also grammar and syntax are terrible which gave me my first clue........but the request for money made me unfriend him.........then I refriended him and he has not since asked for anything.........but, I am waiting.

Robert Moore Bays on Facebook. Orthopedic Surgeon with the UN, ho hum, widower, has a 17 year old son in college in NY.

After a few days the request for money went like this - "I plan to do something tangible for the needy over here as part of my birthday I tried to raise some funds and ordered a United Nation Diplomat who will leave for the base later Thursday to help me get some items like toys, books clothe and some other items to help me give to the kids which he has been able to do but according to him the toys I asked him to get weren't enough I don't know if you could be of an assistance to me, co-note don;t take it too personal am just asking for a favor I don't mean to do this I just wish if you find a place in your heart to for the helpless."


I said no, and he badgered me. I continued to say no, and he continued to plead and badger. I refused. He let it go, but now the deal is that he is in love with me.

Never met me, no frame of reference. Total scammer. He has two Facebook pages. He does have my email address, but hey, I can put him in the spam folder.

So, glad this page is here. This was very helpful.

Short Greyish hair
No beard, but a bit of hair under the chin
In Shape .. Lean
One picture of him was when he was sitting on a gravity lawn chair.

Hope this helps ladies!! And some of these guys can be terrorists. So do be careful. If you post anything on Facebook only post to friends about him, not post to public.

Cynthia and Maggie!! Yes I heard from this guy. He sent me a friend request on Facebook. Before I accept a friend request, I go and look at their profile. Well there was nothing. After a few days, I did accept it thinking I could remove him if he was not someone I wanted to be facebook friends with.

Well in 4 days, he must of sent me a combination of 22 facebook messages and emails. I blocked him from facebook after 4 days. Note: you can also block email accounts.

You can report these people. My only concern is some of these scammers could be terrorists and they have no regard for human life. So be careful.

Here is some of the scam. (I also think the picture is phony. A very nice looking guy).
=================================

"Like I said earlier in regards to my job, I am an orthopedic surgeon working with the Royal Dutch Army of Netherlands, I have served in Syria before I was deployed with the RDA troops to Afghanistan, it has been God all the way."
"


"I really miss my son and hope to see him soon as he misses me very much too, I do communicate with him via his school guardian's email address, and sometimes sounds unhappy not seeing me in a long while, He is studying in London due to the fact that before I left for my mission in Syria, I had a contract work in one of the hospitals in London UK, and I have to take him with me, not having much time for myself, I have to register him in a boarding school so he can have a school guardian to watch over him, I am delighted he is doing well in school."

"About my work well I don't have much to say than to summarize things about my work for you okay if I said I should say everything about my work it we take me weeks to end the story, I work with NATO international COMBAT force fighting against terrorism for years now, we have Thousand of work's in Afghanistan missed with female Doctor's, I am looking forward for my retirement​ soon to start a new family with the woman I wish to marry, my plan is to invest on Hospital and Restaurant after I get married "

Note: When his facebook account was no longer active and he emailed me he wrote":

"No Dear. I did not remove you from my facebook account okay i told you before that the Authority normally monitor my facebook account for security reason, we were having some technical problem that is why the Authority deactivate all account. I am and Orthopedist Doctor, My plan is to go into investment after my Retirement and start a new family with the woman i wish to marry, I also plan to return to North Carolina where i spent all my life with my family, I hope to live the war zone soon, since i have been in the war zone i have not gone to visit my son i am prepare to live here soon, Dear i we love us to always come and check on each other on email. Dear always check on me on here."

Oh yeah same story. Lost some money getting the good doctor (general surgeon) out of Syria via Turkey border to come visit me and claim me as his beloved wife. Widower with 12 yr old daughter and 22 yr old son. I was always suspicious but he got into my head big time and I decided for peace of mind I would send some money just to know the truth.

Guess what. He is now stranded in Istanbul!!

Wanting more money for a plane ticket. Fat chance. Wish I had seen this site last week. He could never reveal himself to me the 5 weeks we messaged on Facebook. Not allowed to have phones, video chat etc. The UN was very strict about that. Many excuses now that he hasn't contacted the US embassy, his father or son etc etc. of course by tomorrow he will be destitute after three days and no money. Oh.

It was going to take four days to reinstate his credit card. A fool no more. Thanks ladies for your stories and may we all just be a bit smarter!!

From all the posts I have read it is so much like I was given from a Clement Fred Thomas sometimes goes by Clement Fred Wilson. He's from Louisville, KY and has been in Syria 2 years and has 3 more years to go. Has a 17 year old son in boarding school back home.

I gotten so many pictures of him and one of his son which they do somewhat look alike. The doctor said he just celebrated his birthday on April 19th and he's 60 years old.

I'm not sure if he's for real or not, but I'm on my guard. For a doctor he does have terrible spelling and grammer which I find very interesting.

I have to be honest I did almost fall for this guy. Luckily he didn't ask for money for anything, but it wouldn't surprise me if eventually he does.

I met this guy in early febuary 2017, and he said he was a Orthopedic surgeon from L.A California, divorced with a 16 year old daughter named Sophia in boarding school out there, and said he was in Syria with the U.N. but was afraid his life was in danger since their was a war going on there.

Right away within a week or so he was "in love" with me, promised me a house, cars, trips around the world, asked me for money and being a widow/single mom I fell for it, and in total I lost $3800 trying to get this guy "home", and to date he says he is being held at the Logan International Airport in Boston Mass waiting on another $1000 fee for his bags and a demerrage fee after he tried to bring $5.5 million in cash with him through customs.

I'm still in recovery of the damage this person did to me and my daughter, and he is supposed to be 5'10" grey hair, blue eyes, and 55 years old.

Birthday 6/28/61 and wears glasses on occasions. I will never trust online dating again, so women be careful of this one, he is a real scum bag, and there is another report here about him too, so be warned and stay away.

by: Anonymous

His name is "Marcus Clinton." A friend of a friend on FB. I accepted his friend request and any friend of my pal Cindy was certainly worthy and safe to be a friend of mine. We started chatting on FB and I gave him my email.

I was not allowed to post on FB. Could not see his "friends" on FB. His photos were of a dashing man. He said he was born in London, England. FB page said he lived in NY, NY but in our conversation he said he was lived in California. His parents were dead.

His wife died in child birth and so did the baby. He has no brothers or sisters or relatives. His daughter, 10 years old is being schooled in North Africa. He gave me an email to contact her. I did not. He professes his undying love.

How in three months he is done is Syria and he will come for me and we will be married. OMG! I almost fell for it but there were so many holes in his stories. I am an investigative paralegal and I almost let my heart overrule my head.

Just blocked him on FB and need to figure out how to block him from my email. I am happy I came upon your page. I happened to come across it during my "investigation" of orthopedic surgeons in Syria.

by: Anonymous

Met him on Tinder, 39 years of age, from Long Beach, CA. Also works for the UN based in Sana'a Yemen. Divorced, with a 8 year old son named Mike. He's been over seas since last Feb, and also an orthopedic doctor.

I even asked him today if he was one of those Nigerian scammers, of course he denies it.

We are communicating through KIK. Too bad we cannot upload pictures here, probably the same guy. I tried a picture reverse lookup but found nothing. There were three FB profiles with only one pic.

He sent other pictures of him, but probably stolen.

ED: you can post pictures when you start a new submission [not adding a comment to an existing submission] - use the page below and you can see photos here:

Dr. Rahman Khan of UN
by: Anonymous

I met this guy from a religious website. He sent me a message and gave his details immediately. The first time we chatted over whatsapp he told me he wants to get married as soon as he finishes his contract in UN as a ORTHO SURGEON based in Syria.

He told me maybe I am the one he is waiting for (we never met and now he will marry me lol). I said i preferred talking over typing so he called me up. He told me he was born and raised in Texas but the root is from Bangladesh. He doesnt sound like American. The accent is far different so doubted him the first time.

He told me he cant reply immediately maybe because he was busy with his work (but in reality he was busy scamming other girls....talking to a lot of girls who were into his hand 😄😃😂). He always sent me messages and calling me through whatsapp. After the 2nd day of meeting him I consulted Mr Google but unfortunately cannot find any name like him so i came across to this website and browsed and read every complaint and finally saw one complaint from a lady who had the same story so i screenshot that message.

The 3rd day he called up again and asking me to see each other this coming May because according to him it is the end of his contract in UN and cant wait to be with me lol.

Too good to be true. Then asked about his job and he hardly explained and i said "You know what you sound like you are reading a script". He said this is me and I fall in love with you hahaha

Then I said I wanna send something for you and he said okay. So I sent the screenshot to him and he said what can I do as I dont get along with that girl. I said I got that message from the Nigerian scam website.

Don't use God to scam anyone as I believe in karma. Dont feed with family with that kind of job and one day they will catch you. He never replied and thats the end of the story. I blocked him and the site were we met and he was also blocked and reported to authority.

To all the ladies out there please be aware of the people you are talking to.

Thank you for this site, it helps a lot. 😅😄😃

He's messenging me right now as I add his name to the scammers. Wife died in childbirth, son is grown now. FB profile very limited. Called him out on his improper use of English grammar right away & now have him pausing as I threw a curve ball at him & asked him what High School he attended since he is claiming to live in Texas.

His fatber is Mexican. I told him Oxford is not a latino name & he said his father changed his name when he came to U.S. I guess he's stepping up his game now.

Must feel pretty confident in his English now.

Ortho in Syria
by: Anonymous

My sister has been talking to a guy on FB messenger for a few weeks. He claims to be from NC and Calif before that. Says his parents and brother are deceased. He lost his wife 5 yrs ago to cancer and has a teenage son.

He also said he works for the UN in Damascus, Syria as an orthopedic surgeon. Right away he proclaimed his undying love for her and calls her his wife, even though she is married. He wants her to end her marriage within a month and says he will pay her back for it when he gets back to the states. He also gave her his son's email and wants her to write to him.

I'm worried because I know it is a scam. Sure enough, he asked her for $1200 to replace his documents that he claims got burned during the bombing over there. Says he wants to come home to her before he gets killed. He said he got shot in the leg during the attacks too.

She is falling for this rubbish and no longer talks to me because I told her he's not real! I told her to report him to the FBI. I've looked up his name on the web and he has never practiced medicine in the US.

This has to stop!

Vulnerable, but not stupid!
by: Anonymous

Scam similar to others going by the name of Anthony Leniod.

Head Orthopeodic Surgeon with UN Reconciliation and Conflict Resolution Department. His language never seemed as if he could be of that intelligence. He expressed undying love for me after about 24 hours, and wanted me to be his wife (which he often referred to me as).

Never let up on this claim over a month of conversations, at which time I decided enough was enough. Never made any requests for money but did tell me how much he was worth (supposedly).

Widowed - wife died of cervical cancer. Daughter - Amy aged 15 (Sent photograph of her and 2 of himself. Requested I contact her to tell her I was going to be her new Mom - refused of course!
Never believed the guy was for real, but hung off telling him this to find out what was his real aim.

None the wiser on that, but he certainly did not like it when I pointed out he was a scammer and not a word he had said was true. His last comment was quote: "I put myself through pain and misery just to have you apart of my life, in return I got nothing. You’ll always have a place in my heart but just know you can’t ever have all of it" end quote.

Thank God for that!

I have one on the go today. Darren Joseph Taylor. Within 2 days is totally in love. Parents died when he was 10 and was an orphan. Was married for 22 years and has an 8 year old daughter, but is now divorced. Educated in USA but cant put a sentence together correctly. He also writes in German and is going to set up a private hospital in Germany.

Strikingly good looking man, dark hair and brown eyes, looks a bit like George Clooney! Checked FB has no information, no friends, but a couple of photos. Has sent me an email address that is verified. Found me on LOVOO. Cant send any current photos because of the nature of his job!

I wonder if he knows what an orthopaedic surgeon actually does. I'll report and block tomorrow, after asking him why if he is so well educated, he cannot write very well in English, and having my bit of fun knowing it is a scam.

As the saying my goes if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Good luck ladies, don't get caught out.

Ladies I cannot thank you enough you are truly awesome. I was approached by yet another orthopaedic surgeon working for UN in Syria. Jesus I got the works - dead wife, son in boarding school in US, and the UN saved his life as he was orphaned. What a load of rubbish.

He has not asked for money yet but wants to open a school shopping mall or hospital in Dubai where I do some contract work.

I suggested that he opened a hospital in India. He said he couldn't afford so I asked why he cant pay and that did not go down to well.

I feel as if I'm being smothered with affection, and didn't realise that I was so charming !! LOL
They are truly scum and I will expose him.

Well done ladies you are all beautiful people with good hearts that should not be broken by these scum bags.

Pediatric Cardiologist with the UN
by: Anonymous

Mine is a pediatric cardiologist working for the UN named Daniel Williams. He didn't come on too strong but has the hallmarks of a scam.

He wants to come back state side and start his own clinic after retiring early from the UN.

We have spoken on the phone and had a Skype video call. He has even sent me pictures and it is all the same person. The video chat voice matches the voice on the phone matches the picture that he sent and the ones he used on Tinder. He even had pictures of himself with other people.

It all seemed very real and plausible until he asked for $450 to get out of Nigeria after an attack on his UN camp by terrorists who took his possessions.

I did not send any money and when I accused him of fraud he said if he were not telling the truth he would not let me see him.

Based on a previous comment, it seems that the fraudsters are going to a whole new level to deceive.

Dr. Frank Mark Williams? Tells me he is in Syria with UN peacekeeping forces and "accidentally" got my name from Facebook. He says he loves me, was widowed 7 yeas ago and has a son in the UK in boarding school.

He wants me to write his son soon to let him know who I am and that one day I could be his new mother. I've been playing along because I want to catch him in his lies. But I think the time has come to stop the nonsense.

A friend of mine is getting info for me about his UN claim, because it's a federal offense to pose as a rep of the UN. She is former military and used to prosecute these folks.

Oh yes, he says he is an orthopedist too. I feel so stupid for thinking he could be for real but am relieved I'm not the only one.

This man is on FB, no friends, follows woman, and you cannot post anything on his FB page. It's ruined me as far as trusting another man. I was a fool, and I'm ashamed of myself.

Her "Fiancee" asked her to take a little package for him and she did. Love makes us blind...He didn't meet her and the story became really weird but to make it short: she eventually returned to Canada and was meet at the airport by security.

That package turned o be a heroin, 5 kilos... Now she is in prison, has no money to pay a decent lawyer, he son is with her old father...

My advice to all of us....Run...Delete... Report...And find someone local.

Hi Ladies,

Please help me. I met this guy from FB, 57 years old male from Syria who claimed to be a medical doctor. Wife passed away 3 years ago and had a 14 years old son who goes to boarding school in UK.

First conversation name was Dylan Philip then he said he had problems with his FB account and changed it to Dylen Philip.

Messages me everyday, telling me that he loves me which I find its odd because he only saw my picture.

He even gave his son's email and showed me the picture and started emailing by his "son".

He said he will be retiring at the age of 57 and will invest his retirement instead of working as an MD. Planning to come here in Las Vegas and met with me but I am so afraid of this.

Please help me.

Omg so I decided to search online for someone who I ve been talking to for the last 3 days and he goes by the name of Williams in tinder with some good looking pictures.

I guess he is the sane guy your'e all talking about.

His story is that he is a ortho surgeon making lots of money and he is a widower who has a son in boarding school. He lost his parents in a car accident. His words are odd cause he claims he loves me jajab and he would come back to the USA to meet me. He hasn't asked me for money but when I told him that I need to hear his voice, he tried to avoid the question and later answered that it was risky in calling me due to his job.

He wanted me to delete tinder and I guess he doesn't want me to report him . I am about to block him tomorrow and hopefully he would think I lost my phone. The story sounded too good to be true. Thank god i decided to look for information and found all these stories.

Same story 47 yo orthopaedic surgeon working on classified deployment in Syria, met through plenty of fish. One 18 year old daughter who lives abroad, dead parents, and a widow. Love at first sight and long love letters every day.

By the name of Ryan Diego born in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Spanish father and British mother, only child. I started suspecting when he mentioned going to the cinema, then a long list of things he wants to do, when I googled something I didn't understand, this page came up with the exact same list!

I told him he was busted that he's a scammer, and he communicated 3 more times insisting he was not a scammer but if I can't trust him there's no way a relationship would work and he'd be heartbroken.

I'm still stringing him along at this point. I'm going to ask him for money instead.

Listen up ladies. This is the same guy he scared me also. He is a low life. Just a tip any man with two first names as his name is usually a red flag. Example John Paul. If it's too good to be true it probably is. Stay away delete block and report to the FBI and Facebook and any other site he is on.

We are all smart beautiful woman who deserve good men and they are out there just not on dating sites. Stay positive and love will find you.
I got lucky I met a very nice man and was very quick to give me all his info to prove he was the real deal. And we have been together for about 2 months and things are going great.

He is a wonderful man. So please take my advice

Good luck and love will find you when you least expect it. It did for me.

Good luck ladies and get off these sites. Go to networking events as there are so many of them where the people are for real. Join a networking group and ask friends do you know anyone who I might be good with.

Steven J. Anderson - surgeon in Syria
by: Anonymous

Befriended yesterday by this person. When I asked him why he befriended me, he said while searching for an old friend on FB he saw me and was attracted. Ok, wanted to know personal things about me..when I questioned him, he stated he was a surgeon for the UN in Syria, widowed with a teenage son named Graham schooling in Puerto Rico because he likes going to school there.

Sounded rather odd.....for someone claiming to be from the states/New York and Florida, his English was not up to par. Looked up UN surgeons and he is not listed. Supposedly under contract in Syria for another 2 years and really dislikes his job. Would like to settle down and get on with life. His FB page lists no friends, photos etc.

His profile pic shows a good looking man with an older gent, I'm assuming to be his father. Well for someone who says he spends all his down time from being a surgeon on FB, there was nothing to show.

Red flags immediately! I have deleted and blocked this guy.

Beware of this guy!

Organized ring of scanners steal people's Facebook pics
by: Anonymous

It's organized rings of people doing this. They steal pictures of real people off Facebook and post them on dating sites pretending to be them or changing names and personal details and stories slightly from Facebook; they actually read through these people's Facebook posts to impersonate them.

Please be careful.

I got catfished 3 times in 2 weeks by these guys. As everyone says on this site, it's the typical modus operandi.

Fall in love too fast with you, messengering on external apps so cannot be monitored by dating site so less evidence, working far away in war, widowed, posts pics of other people's kids, soldier, military doctor, asking for money claims government won't cover incidental costs or allow them to spend money but has no problem being allowed to be on a dating site so inconsistent stories.

Targets lonely older, divorced or widowed women.

Report them to the site and stop contact immediately and move on.

Please tell your mom it's the same guy who scammed me. And he will ask for your bank acct number so money can be tranfered or use money gram.

Promised marriage, buying houses and cars and loves me, writes poems and says I am the only one. The same story about the dead wife and kids total BS. He had probably about 50 profiles. He needs to be stopped.

He will first ask for 250 for toiletries so he can smell good for you. Than he will need money to get the Internet. Than he will need money for airfare. Probley 750 or something around there. He was as bold to ask if i had some jewerly to sell when I told him I didn't have the money.

I was stupid enough to send him money. And I think you all know how this BS tale ends. He just moves on to his next victim.

Please I beg you all he is crazy. Block him if he had your email and change your email. Than report him to every dating site and the FBI and the United Nations because he is doing an injustice to a very good organization. So here is the happy ending. I have been just putting good positive energy out there. This ended with him I think around November. I since met an amazing man who adores me and respects me and he is smart and successful and I am very happy.

So there are good people out there. BUT HE IS NOT ONE OF THEM. STAY AWAY FROM HIM. I SPOKE TO A FRIEND OF MINE WHO IS A PI AND HE SAID ONE COMMON THING IN THESE SCAM ARTIST IS THEY USUALLY HAVE FIRST NAME AS THERE LAST NAME ALSO. FOR INSTANCE JOE LOUIS AND VERY GOOD LOOKING AND CHECK THERE GRAMMER AS ITS VERY BAD.

ALSO NOTICE THAT THEY CONTACT YOU THAN CHECK THE TIME IN SYRIA AND AFRICA OR NIGERIA. ITS A DEAD GIVEAWAY. TRUST ME NO ORTHO SURGRON NEEDS MONEY AND I KNOW FOR A FACT BECAUSE A FRIEND OF MINE WHO USE TO WORK WITH THE UN MISSION SAYS THE DOCTORS ARE TREATRED LIKE ROYALTY BECAUSE THEY ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE THEM. THEY ARE FED VERY WELL AND HAVE VERY NICE ACCOMODATION AND THEY PAY FOR EVERYTHING FOR THEM INCLUDUNG TRAVEL AND FOOD AND INTERNET AND TOILETRIES.

SO I HOPE YOU ALL CAN LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE.

My elderly Mom who was recently widowed is being scammed Please help
by: Anonymous

My mother who is in her seventies is being scammed by a man who says he is a orthodpedic surgeon who works for the United Nations.

I went on a UN websight and cannot find his name listed as one of their doctors. He is going by the name of George Normans. He has only been talking with her on messenger and on the phone for one week and tells her is going to marry her and she will go to Texas with him when he gets back from his next UN tour of duty and she will be his PA and work side by side with him in a big hospital in Austin TX.

He claims to also be a widower who has two daughters ages 17 and 11. He says thier names are Lisa and Elizabeth. His facebook profile shows him in a pic with both daughters. He claims to be fifty nine but facebook DOB shows him to be sixty one. He is way too young for my mom either way. I took pictures of other stories on this website and sent them to her but she still belives his BS.

Help me to get her to see the light. What do I do? My husband does not want me messaging this guy for fear he will then have all our info from Facebook.

He is Widowed with a 6 year old daughter. Very smooth talker, uses all the pet names to suck you right in. Claims he is so hooked on you then asks for you bank details so the UN can deposit money into it for his taxes, then he is able to break his contract with them and then we will be together forever claiming he will move to Australia.

Once he asked for my internet banking details the red flag went up and I blocked him.

Also said he had a 7 y/o son named "Jeff".

He told me all this stuff within 10 minutes of speaking in Messenger. Just dumping out his emotional purse looking for a whole lot of sympathy, real quick. His grammar was very questionable.

I have been chatting to a guy whom I met on match.com. He said he is an orthopaedic surgeon for UN. He said he is widowed 5 years ago.
He has said he is totally in love with me and wants to marry me.

How can this be true when we haven't even met?
I have spoken on the phone once but found it very hard to understand him as his accent was very broken. He said he is half British, half German.

I have since asked him to prove who he says he is. He seems very reluctant in doing this.
I will await his response for a couple of days then if he can't prove he is who he says he is then he will be reported.

Nigerian Surgeon working for the UN
by: Anonymous

Classic. I *met* a guy on Tinder - great profile pic etc. He said his name was Mason. His opening message to me cracked me up and screamed NIGERIA. "Hi Dear" lol. I messaged backwards and forwards. He told me that he was an orthopaedic surgeon for the UN in Nigeria, working on wounded army soldiers

I think he was possibly not expecting me to have worked with the UN before..and that my ex also worked for the UN. He told me that he had dual citizenship (NZ and USA) and that his mother was from NZ. His grammar was questionable and seriously, WTF is an orthopaedic surgeon doing, working for the UN patching up Nigerian Army folk...ahhh NOPE.

I got tired of chatting and so called him out on his lies. Funnily enough I didn't get any further messages ;-)

Seriously ladies, if you meet anyone online and they say they are a UN worker, or military or whatever, and ask for money, don't bother coming on here saying "are they real". You have your own answer right there. NO!



Cheers all!

I'm having the same thing happening to me right now. I met him on Facebook and he immediately started telling me how he was overcome by my beauty. We have been talking now for 10 days.

He has asked me to open up a Bank of America account so he can send me money and then have me send that money to his colleague in Nigeria who is on a mission trip. I'm not going to of course but I play along trying to get more information on him.

He has asked me to marry him already.

He claims he's an orthopedic doctor from the UN and is a widow with a 5 year old girl. He won't call me because he said he went down there with no cell phone or a whole lot of money.

Please help me catch this SOB

Re Johannes Sergio....
by: Anonymous

Never send any money via western union.
The con artist has now changed name as Johannes Sergio????

The story is same as below.

I've confirmed with UN that they never ask employee to pay for tax or to pay for un attorney to terminate the contract. It is scammer who created the story.

Just finish communicating with him right now before your emotion gets too much into it.
Report ACORN in AFP via online about him and report to dating site to protect all women.

Be smart!!

Be careful with email - jamesoa931@yahoo.com
by: Anonymous

A guy named James with different surname, James Andrick, James Lembit, James Andriant....
He is scammer. He will always pretend that he is a widow and send you a picture of a man with a son.

He will eventually ask you to send money for satellite phone, then ask you to send money to finish his UN contract not to go to Syria because it will risk his life and he wants to come home to be with you. He will be so good at making up story after story.....

He will pretend his mother went to hospital and has to fly to USA instead of coming home.

My friend was scammed with this guy exactly same as below stories. I think he changes his surname to fool different women. He uses a story that he is working with UN in Pakistan as an intelligence officer for 18 months contract.

He is not who he claims to be.

Most scammers uses their identity as ex-navy, ex-military, working with the UN overseas to avoid meeting you in person because they are not a real person who will meet you.

He is convincing you that he found you and he is so eager to be with you. He needs some money to fly home with whatever reason to convince you that you should help him to come home to be with you.

Never ever send money to anyone via Western Union.

This guy uses below names to ask you to send money via Western Union.

Michael Noora
Vyson Jedegwa
Euclid Onono

Whenever you come across a guy with this story and name, report it to the online site where you met him and ACCORN (Australian Cyber Crime Reporting System) to protect other vulnerable women.

Be proud of yourself when you are not trapped with this kind of scammer emotionally.
Never give personal details to anyone who you met online and you haven't confirmed their identity or you haven't met them.

James Lembit
by: Anonymous

I have been chatting to an internet guy who so proclaims himself as James Lembit and told me that he lives at Kirribilli NSW. He told me that he is a security intelligence officer for United Nations and is currently based at Pakistan (Peshawar).

He also told me that he is on a 18 month contract. He has been chatting to me since May 2015, but we have not met yet. I do not have his phone number or exact home address as he says he is not comfortable giving it to me for his own safety reasons. He was suppose to meet me but then had to fly to New Zealand and then upon returning to Sydney from NZ, he had to rush to New York to the United Nations for an urgent meeting.

From there he flew to Pakistan and his contract does not finish till November.

He has recently told me that he wants to keep contact with me through satellite phone service and needs me to pay the service fee of US$518. He told me that he is getting this service from a guy named Michael Noora from Virginia Norfolk. Since I am very vigilant and from day one, I found this Mr James Lembit to be too good to be true, I had been searching him online but could not find any thing about him.

Later James Lembit created a LinkedIn profile upon my request. But his profile does not contain a lot. Yes, he also told me that he is 43 yrs old and is a widower. His wife died of cardiovascular disease and he is looking for love again. His level written English is of a very high standard. This could make you really believe that he is definitely employed by UN and saying everything true to you.

I felt a little suspicious when he asked me to pay for the phone service, especially if he is working for UN then he should be paid well to pay for the service himself. On the first instance I refused to give any money. Later I decided to find out where he wanted me to send money, as from day one I had a suspicion that it could be the African racket (which I was aware of through current affairs).

I later asked him whom to send money to. He gave me the name Michael Noora and then I searched Michael Noora and found this website which mentioned his name as a scam artist. I am so glad that today I have hit the bulls eye and made it definite that James Lembit is a con artist.

Upon checking with North Sydney Council, I have confirmed that no one named James Lembit lives at Kirribilli.

Please ladies, do not give money to any internet guy if you have not met him in person. They are all users and are only after our money. We are not that weak. We do not have to be that weak.

Do not get lured by these men, they are just playing with our emotions.

Thank you to this site that I can now delete all the correspondence from this James Lembit guy. I am patting my shoulders for being vigilant and doing extra research about this man which paid off well.

I will surely crack a bottle of champaigne tonight to celebrate not sending him any money.

Fraudulent James Andrick
by: Anonymous

On Elitesingles Australia stay away from James 49 who states he is a Security Consultant. His email address is jamesoa931@yahoo.com.

He states his name is James Oram Andrick. His Phone number is +13479478977.

The scammer is most probably using another victim photo and story, so most likely will use mine along with my photos. I was fooled into sending $3,000 to cover a supposably secure phone line in Pakistan and administration costs for emergency leave with the UN.

He will win you over with well written emails and claiming to have a strong connection. He has a strong accent and sounds like he may come from Africa despite his 26 years in the US Navy. He will exploit your vulnerability and play on your emotions.

He claims he is a widow and raising his son who currently lives with his mum in New York whilst he is completing an 18 month contract with the UN. This was because he couldn’t bear to be home in Wahroonga(NSW) with the memories of his late wife Maria, but now that he found you he will do everything to come home.

He claims his wife passed away in 2011 when his son was 3yrs old. He retired from the Navy 2 years ago and has taken the UN contract. Just be ware he will play on your sympathy and tell you the most romantic story how he moved to Australia because of his late wife. All phone conversations and emails seem real and plausible, however when he asks for money RUN!

He asks you to transfer money into a UN Diplomat account where I am sure this is another woman he is talking with who has given her bank details, I know this as he later asked me for my details so he could get friends to help him out and put into my account for me to send via Western Union to his attorney Michael Noora in Norfolk Virginia.

He sends numerous photos of a man and his son. Then he will claim he has been selected to go to Syria but will find a way not to go because he has now found love again. He will claim he needs money to pay taxes to terminate his contract with the UN so they do not deploy him. This is all because he wants to come back to Australia to be with you.

I have completed a phone tracking online and it appears this phone never left New York. He is familiar with a few suburbs in Sydney, but probably researches this.

So don’t be fooled.

Do not give out any of your details. I am still hoping that I don’t find fraudulent activity in my name.

Dr. Sara Smith (asarsfg@yahoo.com) and Freeman Burgh (unhumanaffairs1@usa.com
by: Anonymous

I met "Sara Smith" on Match.com a dating website. She said she was an Orthopedic Surgeon for the United Nations, originally from "Chicago" and asigned to the United Nations in Liverpool, UK.

For 2 weeks she sent me poems and love letters, told me he loved me and asked me to be her girlfriend and start a new life.She then said she she received a memo from the UN saying that she will be relocated to war conflict area in Irak or Afghanistan and she was scared to die there and wanted to come home and be with me.

She asked me to email the unhumanaffairs1@usa.com requesting leave. That is when I knew it was a scam, googled it and found other complaints. I didn't say anything but sent the email and received a firm to fill out in a reply email from "Freeman Burgh".

I sent A copy of the expected reply I would receive from this bogus "Freeman Burgh". Then he replied my email with the following "Ref to the ongoing transit process leave request,
some steps have to be taken before Dr.Sara Smith embark on her journey and you have to come up with
the following charges to finalize the whole processing.

Medical charges :$660
Replacement for the returning officer:$590
Stamp duties fee:$600.

These are all the other necessary requirements before she proceeds.

Get back to us requesting where payment should be made to.
Thanks,
Freeman Burgh

Sounds like the same guy that tried to scam me, except he said he was in Pakistan doing orthopaedic surgery for the UN.

Gary Tindale/Frank Sammuels/Freeman Burgh
by: Anonymous

I have been talking with a guy for a few weeks who says he is an orthopaedic surgeon working for the UN. He said he was from Montreal but grew up in Germany, where his daughter is now, being cared for by his aunt.

He says he is working in Karachi Pakistan. He suggested that I write to the UN and ask for him to get leave to visit me, which was the strangest thing I'd ever heard of.

On his MSN messenger page, there was another girl he had added. She contacted me and told me she was suspicious of him...he had told her the same things.

Sadly, it seems that he is the same person that has been scamming for some time under different aliases. Freeman Burgh, Frank Sammuels and Gary Tindale...and probably many more.

Here are a few links to others who have had dealings with this scammer.

Love scam from Nigeria
by: Anonymous

I too was scammed by a so called american working for UN in Nigeria as a orthopedic surgeon.

He grew up in the U\Germany and got his education in the UK, We met on Match.com and he imediatly deleted his profile and said we should chat on messenger...

He was very handsome and he loved me right away sending me loveletters. I was a fool at first because he was so charming..

He had a son and was a widower with no family at all. He told me he was coming home in a week or so but was still waiting for his letter. He finally got it and said they had exended it another 3 months.

Then he asked me to email the un and tell them I needed him home. It only took five min and I had a reply that I needed to send $700 for some tax and that he would get it back. He would then be with me within 3 days. Im a fool but not that big a fool.

I right away did some research and figured it all out.

If it's too good to be true it probably is.
