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.

He is back. His name is David. In a grey suit and tie. I know for 1000000000 percent he is trouble and a total Fraud. Please ladies block and report him. I just sent a letter to tinder and bumble about him and the FBI.

Please do that all of you he needs to be stopped. This is a very serious problem. Ladies we are all smart and beautiful and there are many good guys out there. Just so you know. If a guy had two first names. Like for instance David Mark. Just an example.

His grammar will be bad. And will tell you he loves you and wants to buy a house. And is in some countries. Then will ask for money after he tells you that you are the one for him. And wants to move wherever you are. Then will ask for money for plane fare.

Please listen to me. He needs to be stopped and put in jail. If we all report him maybe they can make a case against him. Good luck ladies. Please remember you are all great women.

Playing Words with Friends
by: Anonymous

Says his name is Andrea Gudson, widower with 2 children. He says that he is a doctor surgeon for the UN in the Ukraine but lives in San Francisco. Just started chatting but I don't trust anybody these days. Can't find his name on the AMA list or the UN list.

First clue, he asked me if I was interested in a relationship after two days of chatting and playing words.

Dr Williams Gray Hayford
by: Spanish

I don't speak English, but I will try to explain it:I met him on Hello talk, UN surgeon in Aleppo, widower, 57, a child interned somewhere in Africa. The behavior is as I read in the comments. This morning he told me to leave Aleppo urgently, and to send him money. Give me an email unitednationofficial.usa@gmail.com, and told me what I have to put. I sent the mail and they answer this:

Hello Madam

"Thank you for your request and we are ready to put things in order due to what's happening out there in Syria, we are sorry for the flight but you have to make a choice of it ......... ($ 6,700) In Asia is ($ 5,500) In Europe embassy is ($ 8,000) in West Africa UN embassy is ($ 2,600) this is the list we have For now thank you so much for the request

We look forward to your reply
Pick where you want to book to thank you "

I told him yes and I pay him on Monday.

What is the next step?

I do not speak English, so I'll try to explain it
He is in Hello talk, an app for language exchange. He says he's a brain surgeon in Aleppo, Syria. I'm talking to him on Hangouts. I want to know how far. 57, a widower with a son in West Africa. He tells me that he must leave Aleppo urgently, and that he has no money. He has given me a false UN mail. I have sent the text he has said. I am asked to choose several flight options, the cheapest $2600. I want to know how far. I told him that on Monday the banks open.
I told him that I believe it and that Monday I pay.

Another UN surgeon James Miller
by: Anonymous

I'm happily married and not on a dating site, but was messaged by a man on private message on Twitter. He said his wife died, son in boarding school. His English is suspect. He's asked about my economic background.

Strange question after an exchange about food! Says his name is James Miller and is an orthopedic surgeon working for the UN in Damascus.

How do I check him out, please? If he's genuine, neither my husband nor I mind messaging, but his constant use of 'my dear' and odd English make me want out!

Any of you come across a guy who calls himself Nelson Williams, alternatively William Nelson? From Los Angeles, 55 yrs, widower, wife supposedly died in childbirth (child also died). Peculiar english writing - I am Norwegian, but I should think that a US citizen with a medical degree would be able to write more fluently.

I blockef him today - did not bother to see any more of this rubbish.

Another name to add to the 'scammers' list
by: Anonymous

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'

How to identify a conman
by: Anonymous

Generally they have few peculiar traits which will help understand they are a fraudster

1) Their surname will actually be like first name of many people...here "amol" "chintan"
In India both are the first names

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...

Scott on Veggieconnection.com

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

Recently contacted by this guy Colonel Christopher Lastochi
by: Anonymous

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.

Do you reckon this is a scam?

Would appreciate your comments.

Apparently whoever is creating pages, has used his pictures over and over again using a series of names and it appears this has been going on since a bit before 2013. Whoever the scammer is, he trys to convince you to give money for a good cause. I didn't fall for it, but a lot of people have.

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.

Well not really. He has unfriended since. If we can post pictures here, that would be great fun.

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.

Tall
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.

Hopefully, you all know how to make your facebook account secure and change your passwords, and unblock the guy from facebook and email.

by: Anonymous

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!!

Dr Clement Fred Thomas, Orthopedic Surgeon
by: Anonymous

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.

Who do I report this to if this is a scammer?

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.

This man sent me a friend request and I asked him if he knew me on his messenger and he said he was looking for someone who had a name similar to mine and mine came up which I didn't believe.

This has happened before. Then he tried to call me on the phone on the messenger but I didn't answer. I had my son block him. I've talked to other men I've met on dating site's and all of them asked me for money. I did send money to one but didn't get it back.

One asked me to send him an iPhone but I didn't.

He said he will pay me when we meet which we never did. A police officer told me men were getting money from women and sending it overseas probably to the terrorists.

Thank you for this page-I've been scammed
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.

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.

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. 😅😄😃

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

He is not asking for anything, just to wait until he is back. An hour ago my friend told me a story that happened to her colleague. It was very similar situation but that lady was invited to Johannesburg and even got a paid ticket.

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...

Please let's all remember the old adage, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." My mother is actually in the hospital right now from all of the stress that this has put on her.

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

They're are good guys out there....But I can guarantee you they're not orthopedic surgeons stuck in Syria!

Please THINK before sending any money....Cause trust me, you will never see it again!

Ortho dr. Tyler Richard
by: Anonymous

Dr. Tyler Richard. Grew up in an orphanage, widowed fro 5 yrs, has a son in a boarding school in London, dont have lots of pictures on facebook, because he is a marine surgeon in Syria.

After he fell madly in love with me ( btw: I never talked or saw him, all his love was only by emails.... I am that good, what can I say???? Men are madly in love with me, just by email communication LOL).

Well, his love ended 3 weeks after the first email. I've asking him to send me money, I wanted to buy a ticket to go to London to see him in March, since he was about to retired and open his own hospital in Alabama.

This is a scam
by: Anonymous

You need to read, read and read some more regarding scams. This is a scam and somewhere down the line he will ask you for money.

Cut off all communication is my suggestion. Scammers are sophisticated and have infiltrated all dating sites? So Christian Mingle is not safe either.

UN Orthropedic Surgeon (Harrisburg)

My gram who is 65 has been talking to Gilbert Tyler who claims to be a Orthroperdic Surgeon working for the UN & he says he lives in Harrisburg Pa, which is about 2 1/2 hours from where we live.

He seems nice and hasn't asked for money yet, but he is supposed to come to our house today to meet her. And after hearing all of this, I'm not sure if I want him in my house. I'm not sure if he will actually show but it's creepy.

He claims to have a son going to school in London. And he wants to take me gram on his next mission but he's saying she will have to go through a mass amount of security to get approved. And saying things like this.

57 years old male medical doctor from Syria
by: Anonymous

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.

Thanks.

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.

Please don't believe him

Ortho surgeon in Syria scammer
by: Anonymous

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.

Ladies don't fall for guys you don't know in person, don't give them your information.

Too many scammers preying on women.

Yep I've had the same deal. Ortho working in Syria for the UN. Born in Milan Italy and educated in USA. Is widowed with 4 daughters in U.K. Said he had a tough time raising them but then in another conversation says they live with his dead wife's sister in Liverpool.

And they are all in their 20's but his wife died 6yrs ago. He's tripping over his lies. Tells me he's on his last mission and will come directly to me in a few weeks. He's retiring to take up gem buying and selling.

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!

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.

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

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.

Williams Dexter or Christopher Dexter
by: Anonymous

Who knows what his real name is?? Listed as "Williams", says friends call him "Wills", at first said his name was Williams Dexter, then said it was Christopher Dexter, claiming that no one uses "every" name on their birth certificate.

Claimed to be from Louisville, KY, on Tinder showed 11 miles from me. Then all of a sudden, he was 5900 miles away, now he shows 411 miles away. States he is an Orthopedic Surgeon working for the UN in Syria.

Has 4 or 5 pics of the same guy, very attractive - one in Hawaii, one in Minnesota. Has no cell phone, that he can give me the # to, we can only talk on "Hangouts" via gmail.

His email is willydex32@gmail.com

Has an answer for everything, he's not new at this.

Please beware!

I was also contacted on a dating site by an 'orthopaedic surgeon' claiming he was 'amazed by my beauty', thank goodness for mirrors!..LOL,

That was my first 'red flag' that this guy is a fraud..hello..I'm over 50 and fat. 2nd red flag..Surgeons do not need online dating sites to find a partner. I'm sure there are many willing ladies out there trying to catch them.

Nonetheless, I decided to teach him a lesson and waste his time with messages. I'm about to ask him for his bank account and money..who knows maybe he falls for it...LOL

LADIES BE CAREFUL. I have been talking to a so called orthopedic surgeon that works for the UN based in Lebanon for about 3 weeks. He goes by the name of Richard Frank.

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.

FB friend request
by: Anonymous

Had someone by the name of "Donald Smith" request to be my friend on FB and then we started chatting. Same thing as what I've read from others on this site - an Orthopedic surgeon working for the UN in Afghanistan.

His FB profile only had one picture (his profile pic), no other friends, no other pictures, no other posts. He said he had been divorced for 4 years because he caught his wife having sex with his best friend. Told me his mom died 2 months ago and his sister died 2 years ago from cancer. 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.

At one point he asked me "What is your marital status?" --- I mean, who the hell talks like that?!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
