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.

Three Scammers
by: Anonymous

I had three invites yesterday from three different men at the same. I didn't accept any one of them and I blocked them. One said hello baby the other one said you look beautiful and I can't wait to chat with you, and the other one didn't get a chance.

All I'm saying Ladies is be careful because they are all over the internet so they all got my answer Blocked.

Surgeon in Peacekeeping Program with UN in Southern Sudan
by: Anonymous

Match.com 18/4/18 This is the 8th scam in 2 weeks. George, from Italy asked for my mobile number to talk on whatsapp, and he gave me his number so I rang it, it was a UK number with EE answerphone. He whatsapp'd me from the missed call, telling me that he was away for 63 days, that he was originally from Georgia and born on 25/12/1962. I asked where he was and he told me he was a surgeon on a peacekeeping program in Southern Sudan.

I blocked him immediately, and reported him to match.com as a scam. They have deleted 7 profiles off my scam reports. You can report emails to the police, and there is an email address on the internet where you copy and paste your emails

Yet another scammer
by: Anonymous

Orthopaedic surgeon, born in Manchester, raised by uncle in the States in Houston, widowed, daughter Ella, 15.

In love with my photo, contacted me through FB. Insisted on becoming a friend. We chatted using Messenger. Realised soon he was a scammer. Blocked him on FB.

Uses name Micheal not Michael Lange. When I read all these comments I couldn’t believe that some ladies actually parted with their monies. We should protect each other.

So watch out for Micheal Lange. He will most probably change his identity soon.
I’m from Australia.

Almost got scamned
by: Anonymous

Met him on Facebook. Widowed. 15 year old son boarding in calif. He's a Dr in Syria then a white helmet. Switched. He's originally from Poland and a Dr in the Bronx before he went away to Syria. Has to get out of there. He loves me madly and says life there is 50/50. Only has a computer. Cannot take pictures and needs money for plane out of there.

First he wanted Itunes cards. Did send one as I was stupid. Anyway somehow he got a plane and was coming to me but at 2am he woke me up with a story. His plane was hijacked and he is locked up. They took all his possessions and passport. Funny they let him keep his computer. He needs 15,000 for a lawyer to get out and come to me. I spotted him a while back but played along.

After he asked for the money I told him off and told him I knew about the Nigerian scams. Told him he's the scum of the earth and called him every name i could think if. Told him to rot in jail. Went off line and a minute later he texted me again about his problem and please help him

His name is Ken marc or ken mark or Ken moro or any combo. Talked on hangouts at his suggestion. He is persistent so beware. This went on for four months

Dirty Scammer
by: Anonymous

So sad how much of this is still going on! I wish I had known about this site before I got involved with an oil rig scammer. He too, was single, widowed with one child. All have sob stories after they get you to fall in love with them. They use their children to make you feel badly for them.

First its I tunes cards, then money and more money over and over. I almost gave my retirement savings to him, thinking I'd get it back when we ended up together! Thank goodness, there are so many tax laws out there to protect that money. I was ashamed of myself at first then I realized he is the one that should be ashamed of himself!

Dirty scammer!

I met this man on Plenty of Fish, and we talked in there briefly before he asked me to talk in Facebook Messenger. We are not talking on hangout. We have been talking for 3 1/2 weeks. Has sent sever pictures of him, his home in Austin, his son, his mom, and his late wife as she had been gone for 11 years.

I have tried to research him and I told him I have and I can't find anything on him. He didn't get upset and understood my concern. He is to retire from the service in November. He has not asked for any money or anything!

Is he to good to be true?

Please don't fall for this scam.

He says his calls were all intercepted by UN so he could not call me. When I start hearing these stories, it's time for a photo with my name. Get aggressive and be demanding!! No one's going to waste my time.

Update and more info
by: Anonymous

Update on my previous post. I have continued talking to my lovestruck "Doctor" who now says he is desperate to come home and see me so has asked me to write to the base asking for special leave. I said I didn't know what to write so he said he would tell me what to write and sent me this, including the poor grammar.

I AM writing in respect of (Doctor Friedrich Guilherme Marco) who is currently on a contract

I write fr legal advice on how to get a urgent vacation to enable him to leave the base and cme to Portugal as soon as possible, I will appreciate if my humble request is considered

Below are his security details for proper verification

cam name: 4 TH Combat aviation Brigade Base Pakistanischen Stadt Quetta
APO#APO AE 09342
Doctor ID: CH 005585E
Name:Doctor Friedrich Guilherme Marco

Send to Departure.vacation@email.com

When I asked if they would ask why and for how long he said no they won't ask but tell them for 3 months. I then asked if it would be better to wait until his contract finished so he wouldn't have to go back and he said it was my choice but he would really like to come home so we could start making plans for our future when his contract ends.

The base and the APO he mentioned are in USA, the next part is in Pakistan and the ID and name don't exist.

My final reply was "You are delusional if you think I am continuing with this scam, get a proper job" then I deleted and blocked him.

Sorry it's a long post but I wanted to get all the information on here for others.

Another name to add to the list
by: Anonymous

Add another name to the list. Dr. Eric Moore. Orthopedic surgeon. Says he a contractor for the UN. I asked where at and he said "Here in Damascus". Says he has lived in Los Angeles for 25 years and originally came from Belgium. He stated that he lost his wife and only son about 3 years ago. Is a single dad of a 15 year old daughter.

All he wanted to talk about was our bright future and I kept telling him I was not interested in marriage. I, thankfully, allowed only Instant messenger. And we have only been communicating for less than 24 hrs. He introduced himself while I was playing words with friends.

My Facebook has all the security that I could put on it. What ever I could edit out, I put seen only by me. Hopefully this creep gets what ever is coming to him.

Dr. Jason Coubly is supposedly an orthopedic surgeon in Syria. A story very familiar to what I read below. From Florida, raised by his mom after she left his abusive alcoholic dad. Educated in the UK but not listed in any medical directory and now on contract with the UN working in Syria but not listed as a UN physician either.

Never uses my name so it is always, honey, sweetie and my queen! Son in a military boarding school in Georgia. Wife was also a doctor who died of pancreatic cancer 5 years ago. These guys are good. They are sick and pathological to be able to make this stuff up. I am a nurse and an intelligent person and I was on board with this for a while. As I said they are good but BEWARE ladies!!!!!

Watch out for all these cons
by: Anonymous

Ladies save yourself a broken heart and do not pay attention to all of these so called doctors. They are All scammers. They follow the same patten. Dead wives, kid in boarding schools, tragedies in their lives. Now or later they will ask for money to get them out of Syria or other places.
Do not trust these terrible men.

Until I learned my lesson I couldn't believe myself they were scammers. And I met two of them who were very skilled. Perfect english, very intelligent. The doctor in Syria was Edmund R Larsen from Baltimore. After 2 months of chatting he asked for 40 thousand dollars to pay for a private flight out of Syria to come to meet me!

He had a 14 year old daughter left with a teacher near Baltimore. I reported him to the FB where he contacted me. I am sure he operates under a different name now. His voice sounds like south African.

The second one was Walter Ackman who was saying he was from London. Perfect english accent, he asked for 20 thousand after a few weeks. Give me an account to send the money to a bank in Poland to somebody named Peter Ezekiel.

I researched the name and I found out that a lot of men in Nigeria have the same name and they speak perfect British English. I played him and I managed to get another name from him to send the money by moneygram and I got Dilek Hatun Elgin which is a turkish name.

Usually a women's name. May be his wife or girlfriend. I blocked him but he still operates on Hangouts under the same name. He got rid of his FB and Messenger. I reported him to the FB. What is really sad is they are all over the internet. All scammers pretending to be US generals, soldiers, sailors, marine engineers, oil rig workers etc.

If you meet John Hughes, Anderson Scott, Providence Agbi, Stephane Radet, Sam Nicole, Larry Lawrence, William Apro, George Lam, Lary Frank, Patrick Williams, Ducote Thomas, Frexerick Monelle, James Caldwell, JamesUNJames, Jean Phillipe, Daniel Ruiz, Laurent Pichette, Leon Michelson, Michel Dumont, Powell Green, Roger Lewis, Prevot Jean Francois, Solange Leduc, all from Triptogether site stay away. All are scammers.

Also from Instagram:Jthomas0009, pw700616, jjo9438189, clinton_94115, louisalberto141, david_bain555, mark Chris, Johnhenrich579, Jimmyrally123gmail, Robertgoodlove, gregfranklin.

PLEASE Ladies do not get involved with these men and others. They will promise eternal love to get to your pocket or to get your personal information. It is sad because they are so many on these sites. But do not give up hope. One day you will meet that real loving person you are waiting for!

I didn't lose my hope either. Good luck in finding you other half.

After three times chat on FB, he asked me to book a flight for him to get out of Syria. Hmmmm, I said I am a single mom and I can't do that. He told me don't worry.

We chatted today, but still refusing to say military range.

I came here to find similar stories. He widowed three years ago. Have a fifteen years old son in school? Can't say boarding? His parents are dead and he was raised in an orphanage.

He became an surgeon and signed with UN doctors last year.

"Well I'm a single dad with one lovely son, I lost my wife several years ago during childbirth and I'm a medical surgeon I work with the United Nations and the WHO, currently I'm here in Syria to help look after the injured army and the innocent civilians"

I wish I could post a picture of his profile. He only had two pictures and had JUST started his account today. People kill me. Beware ladies! I’m reporting him.

I've been talking to a guy named Friedrich, he's apparently German working as an orthopaedic surgeon at a military base in Pakistan. I met him through Tinder and he claims to own a house not far from me in Portugal, and even gave me the name of the village. He's a widower, his son is called Jerry and when he has to work away from home and his son attends a boarding school in Spain. He says he should be home in a few weeks and will pick his son up first and hopes we can all meet.

It all seemed great to start with, lots of compliments, photos of him at work, with his colleagues and of his son at school and then I read this page.

I asked him if he had facebook so we could find out more about each other but he doesn't use it any more so I told him I had been reading on the internet about the scams and asked if he could prove any of what he told me as what I read had scared me (not at all I just wanted to get the truth) but his reply was "I hate doubt so it's better we stay away from each other"

Now he's not replying and I'm just wondering what happened to the undying love he promised me. lol

Scammers are on IG too - (1) DylanHarrison253 (IG account), (2) Dudley Macgrey, and (3) Larry Edwards. All DM me on IG.

#1 claimed to be a construction field supervisor in the UK. Lost his parents, divorced and is a single father. He was very charming and sweet, and after a few weeks, he asked for money. After I NICELY told him no, he was nasty and verbally abusive. We had been chatting via email and he emailed me and requested for my Verizon login info. I put him in my spam. I will block him if he contacts me again.

#2 lives in FL. I forget what his job was, but he told the same sob stories and even "lost his best friend." Then, he pretended like he wanted money, and became verbally abusive. So, I ignored him.

#3 is the same as all the rest as son is in the US, he's an orthopedic surgeon for the UN in Saudi. Has not asked for money, but since I cannot find him on the UN's list of Doctors, it confirms that he's a scam too.

I never have responded except for hello and he has been begging me to join WhatsApp. (I don't even know what that is) or give him my gmail. Have not done any of that. Told him I don't chat.

Tonight earlier he told me he is a surgeon in Syria working thru United Nations medical department in a safe camp. Widowed, wife died few years ago in gas explosion. So I started some searching and ended up at this site.

Hi there, I'am not english native but I hope that you will understand me. I started talking with Ken Gardner who told me he is a UN doctor orthopedic. The same story like yours, wife died before 6 y, 14 old doughter in a US school. I was suspicious and then he called me using video call, and it was really him.

The pictures are not fake. I don't understand because he did not ask for money, he wanted me to contact the UN for his vacation because he can't live without me anymore after 10 days chatting.

The same stupid mail unitednation.un_124@yahoo.com

I don't know what he wants but he didn't ask me for money, but maybe to try to get from me info about my ID card or passport or maybe banking information.

I told him I don't want to give some info about me, as it's not about me but it's your vacation. Always when I say no I don't want to he asks me how do you mean? I don't understand you.

And yes, he always asks me did you eat today, have you eaten. Could someone can put the link from UN where are all the doctors are with a contract with UN?

David Simran Jnr
by: Anonymous

Hi. I don't recognise the name however, it's the same usual story. UN Doctor widow, child away at boarding school.

As someone said previously reverse google their image - this will tell you where else they are operating and check the UN website for registered Doctors.

I notice it's different names now appearing. It's probably a man who has used numerous names before, to try and scam women.

DR Roland Smith MSF (Twitter) and Dr Davide Smith (Twitter) are the same Nigerian scammer and I think this same person is now operating as James Chandler. Look on Twitter for their photos.

Twitter have been made aware on numerous occasions. if you have a gut feeling and it's too good to be true then it is a scammer.

My advice block and report them.

Has anyone heard of a Dr. M Croner?
by: Anonymous

Says he's a Dr working for the UN Hospital in Syria. I met him on a dating app. He sends me pictures always and asks for mine. I deleted the dating app because I didn't like it. However, he was the only one I liked and I told him I was deleting and he asked to be able to contact me on What's App, which I have for work.

We've been chatting and sending pics back n forth but my gut is telling me something is very wrong. Being lied to is what's led me to be alone for 3 years! Now I'm ready to get back out there and the only reason I tried a dating app was because I didn't want to meet someone in a bar and I work a LOT!!

If ANYONE out there can help me find out as he's sent photos, sent me sweet messages etc. If anyone has a picture of THEIR DOCTOR from Syria I would love to see it BEFORE I go further.

I've never been gullible and I'd rather not start!

Thank you so much!!!

Claimed mother died during childbirth for a sibling and both died. Claims he has no friends, I wonder why. I asked where he attended school and responded Oxford in Tennessee!!!! He plans on vacationing with his son for 3 months when his tour is over.

Claims he lived in Italy and speaks Italian fluently. Can’t spell spaghetti (supargati).

He just sold his house in Texas and plans on starting a business and relocating to LA. Poor grammar, no knowledge of basic medical terms. Was in love and wanted to marry me in 36 hours!!!! He didn’t get a cent out of me - I shut it down immediately!!!!! Despicable man.

Chinese/Cypriot
by: Anonymous

Has anyone been contacted by a man named Deshi Chung through LinkedIn who claims to be in Istanbul Turkey presently, from Limassol, Cyprus, Chinese father (banker) and Cypriot mother (nurse), both killed in a car accident over a decade ago.

He claims to be 38, a petroleum project manager (completion). Planning to move to China with own business and orphanage in mind. Did some modelling while in high school. Asked me to chat on WeChat. I have checked his picture for stolen ID, and he came clean with all the photos he sent to me.

So far, he has repeatedly, since the very beginning of our chat that he has saved money of his own, with only an elderly uncle (mother's side) left in Cyprus. He needs to retrieve his father's documents and settle properties (been in Turkey for 4 years). Has 3 cars (automatic). I have already confronted him by saying : hope you are not a scammer" to which he replied that he had a fair share of them, and his friend almost got scammed recently by a lady from the US.

Then I spotted some bottled love messages (those copied from the Internet), which raised a red flag and confronted him again, to which he replied: I am not a scammer, I don't want your money, I have my own money, I just want to meet a woman with whom I can live with (something like that), for a repeated time. So, I kind of gave him another chance, and he continued chatting with me as usual.

If you have any clues, please let me know! thank you very much in advance!!

Do take care while making friends on the Internet!! Bless you all!!

Hi For the lady who posted a comment on 9th March about what red flags to look out for. They usually follow numerous women on social media, never usually men who may have similar interests.
They call you babe, honey or dear (so they can copy paste and send the same message to multiple ladies).

Usually handsome men in jobs such as military Dr or maybe a soldier. Widowed child usually in a boarding school ( n my experiences usually Africa).

They are online all the time and have a fairly good connection to say they’re in a war zone.
Like to talk on hangouts. Fall in love with you straight away and can’t live without you (usually after a few days),

I’m sure there’s more but hope this helps. This is what I’ve read and experienced. You can also reverse google their photo and it will tell you where else it’s posted. Usually a dating site.

Be careful these men are seriously strange to do this to innocent ladies.

Take care of yourself.

Then an amount of 17500$ to be transferred because he cannot reach him account in good time.

Of course I did not follow any of his requests especially when he sent me the general email in the us military as it always ends with mill. No hotmail or gmails. Doctors in UN cannot ask for leave.

Soldiers do not pay for tickets treatments.

This man recently hit me up to follow him on instagram. He works for the UN and has a son who is 15 and is in boarding school in atlanta Georgia. Just started chatting on hangouts so now he chats more.

No idea how he has time to talk to me when he is 8 hours ahead in time and should be sleeping. Not sure this is real.

Can you help me out ladies? What red flags do I look for?

Scam
by: Anonymous

A guy that says he is German and American is trying to scam me. He says he is from the United Nations and is a orthopedic surgeon and has a 15 year old boy. We have talked over the phone but he swears up and down its not a scam.

But i dont beleive him. He even did a video chat with me. I still dont beleive him. Anyone who falls in love with you instantly and asks you for 3,000 to get him home then asks for 1200 for a marriage license is a damn scam

Claims to be a surgeon in Syria for the UN. Says He's 67 years old but looks 45 in the photo. 16 y.o. daughter in private school in Ghana - yah right. Misspelled sloppy text.

Desmondbustos@gmail.com

When I asked him who that was he said Desmond was his middle name and Bustos was the name of his son who had passed. I googled Dr. Desmond Bustos who is not a white man. Could not help his wife who died of breast cancer 5 years ago. Said he was "all alone." No mention of being a surgeon on facebook profile.

I am an RN and wound specialist. Not only did he not sound like a doctor, he had nothing to say about medical terms I used. All he said was "I understand." Sent me a photo of himself in a nice office in Syria??

UN is no longer in Syria.

New Doc on the block. Andrew Williams
by: Anonymous

Very charming "orthopedic surgeon" with the UN in Syria. Excellent at Word With Friends. The poor man lost his wife 6 years ago in a ghastly accident. His son is 12 and at a boarding school in West Africa.

He was offended when I tried to very his status as a surgeon from New York City.

The medical license # he gave belongs to a dead man. Curiosity got the best of me so we chatted more. Within a few days his son was in a school bus accident. And yes he is now looking for money...sorry buddy. I'm not even sure if the same guy was chatting with me after the bus accident. He certainly lost all his charm.

Dr Tomson Smith
by: Anonymous

This man contacted me via Words with friends. He started with liking my profile then asking where I live and what was my job. He told me he was working in Syria as a doctor and the part he put in looked liked it had been copied and pasted.

The English in that piece was better than the English in his posts. He then asked me he talk on Hangouts. I often asked him questions but he never really replied. He said his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident in America and he had a 16 yr old son being looked after by his teacher in England. I though the photo was slightly familiar and was wondering if it was an actors photo. Must admit I was taken to him.

I invited him to my country to see me and he said to do that I would need to write to the United Nations so he gave me an email address which didn’t look right. I don’t think that the UN's email would end with hotmail.com. But still I hung in to see what would happen.

They sent a message back and said I would need to send $2500USD so he could be released. As I did not have it I did not send it. I have deleted him from Words with friends and Hangouts. I still have the email, with the bank and account number for me to make the payment. I may write to them and they can trace the recipient of the funds. I work in a bank and see many people scammed by people like him.

Hi. For the lady that posted about this man, the photos are stolen. He contacted via video call, and he didn’t tell me he was a 32 year old man from Ghana (he said he wanted me to know the truth and surprise me - yes ladies definitely a surprise ).

The low life rat then had the nerve to invite me to Ghana to see him (so we could get married). I declined the offer.

Roland Smith told me he was a 58 year old man with a 10 year old daughter called Mimi. He’s very charming sends nice images and contacts you day and night. Even after telling me his true identity he still emails me as Dr Roland Smith - I said they had mental health issues.

If you reverse google image the photos it will show other sites such as dating sites where these men are registered.

I have reported this man but like you said nothing happens and he continues to operate.

This is frustrating knowing that another vulnerable lady is falling for his charms and an innocent man’s photos are being used.

Do as myself and the last lady and did block him and report him.

These men have multiple accounts
by: Anonymous

I think most of these comments are about the same men. I think they have multiple accounts with different identities. Dr Roland Smith has different accounts under different identities, and after I stopped communicating with him he followed and messaged me under a different identity ‘to see what I would do and if I was faithful to him’.

I think these men have some serious mental health issues. Dr Roland Smith revealed himself by video calling me to show his identity. He’s a young man in Ghana. Actually he apologised for what he did, "because he loved me so much" - I don’t think so.

He continues to operate on social media.

If you get a follower request and they follow mainly women this is usually a red flag.

I had the same thing happen to me just recently. Needed to get out of Syria and needed me to get him the money for his plane ticket and then sent me pictures of his son in Africa in a school in an auto accident and said he was dying and needed money for medicine. So because I am not doing anything for him I am a horrible woman.

I am so tired of men scamming us women. I have had at least 10 to 11 men on Match try to scam me for money all saying how much they love you and want to be with you till the end of time.

Claiming to be settled in US and having lost parents in Italy and belonging to Gujrat-India but never visited, he is using the identity of one Dr Chittranjan Rao. After a few days of chating with my uncle he wanted him to send a mail to a consultant as he wanted money to be transferred to his account as his account had got locked.

He says he is an engineer and owns his own company and lives in San Diego. His wife and son died in a car crash, and he has a 8 year old granddaughter with a nanny. He is really attentive, sweet and the perfect boyfriend material with good night texts, phone calls all the time on hangouts, texting for hours, poems, love talk, and asks you to marry him.

His daughter had to be relocated to Las Vegas due to the California Fires. Says he is coming out to see you as soon as his contract finished. Said wants to take me on a trip so will take one more job in Turkey, and send a video of him leaving the rig in a helicopter, with his matched pictures on profile, it also showed suitcases packed on a rig in Mexico, and showed it landing and him in a car with a driver in Turkey and pictures eating with his new boss.

Sent lots of pictures, him eating, in his room at the hotel room with two beds. Sent a pic of a letter from Turkey Customs and copy of a check when the contract apparently ended. Turkey required 5,000 tax to be paid, and he sent a pic of 1,000 cash he has left, and says he could not collect his money until paid, and he also said HSBC bank in Turkey would not cash the cheque, as it has to be cashed in the USA.

He has no atm or credit card as bad credit apparently. Wanted money for food as he had to send his last money to register his daughter in a new school. He then said he needs money for hotel room and wanted me to go get a loan and wanted my credit score. I did not give it to him, and lied as I said they wouldn't give me a loan.

Then he wanted me to cash in RRSP stocks and send to him. I Refused, and called him a thief and con artist and scammer. He also sent a link asking me to send banking info and passwords to internet banking. I told him that was against the law and fraud. The bank would have him arrested.

BE careful ladies as he is very charming and charismatic in the beginning. Then when you don't do as asked he is extremely relentless and verbally abusive.

Be aware of this very charismatic man. May contact you via Words With Friends. He will then ask you to join Hangouts - the App of scammers I think. He will tell you he has a dead wife and one son Nathan living in Mobile being cared for by a carer while he is away. No other family apart from an uncle that he has lost contact with, However later in conversations he will mention a sister. When you question him on that he will say that she is really a cousin that he feels is close enough to be his sister. OMG.

Says he in an engineer working on the platform off The Shores in Alabama - says he is from Mobile Alabama. Very good scammer however, it wont take long before he tells you that he has no internet left & wont be able to talk - he needs $100 for his internet until his contract ends in a few weeks.

DONT SEND ANYTHING.

He will then revert to being charming & the next request will be for $500 as he doesn't get paid until his contract ends and his son has run out of money for food.

DONT SEND ANYTHING.

He will plead & beg but stand your ground telling him that you don't any money either.

I have been playing along for a few weeks now just to see how far he will go - now he needs $4000 as there was an accident on the platform & he was nearly killed, & that he has to fix the damage as it is his contract & his bank has frozen his overdraft until he gets paid.

He will beg you to get money for him from your bank and even ask you to take out a loan or borrow from your friends - he will pay you back as soon as he has finished his contract. He loves you. Would never do anything to hurt you.

Just wants to get off the platform & be with you!!!!!!Yeah right.

DONT SEND ANYTHING AS YOU WILL NEVER SEE IT AGAIN.

This is now where I stop playing the game and block him.

Please be very wary ladies.

Hi. Regarding the last post I’ve kept emails and messages for this purpose. Although I don’t respond to Dr. Smith anymore, I still have the details and emails he sent, and he knows some of my details unfortunately. Therefore I am keeping the information for anything that may happen.

It’s frustrating that this man still operates on social media and is probably giving some vulnerable lady the same sob story right now.

Want to throw them away but keep evidence
by: Anonymous

"I deleted my hangout account so now he definetly can't get in touch with me."

Yeah, correspondence with perpetrators really suck and I want to delete everything. Cutting the communication avenue is vital but even if you have not been swindled, records of correspondences may help investigation by the law enforcement in the future.

Also, if you have given your personal information to catfish, scammers or whatever, then your information (such as name DOB, email address/IP address, phone number etc.) can be used for criminal activities. E.g. counterfeit passport, opening bank account/credit card for money laundering and purchase something, use for computer hacking.

The damages you will incur is not limited to financial loss, but you can be a suspect of illicit activities by a perpetrator and/or the third party. In that case, the correspondence records will be evidences to prove that you are innocent.

Hope this helps and stops ladies being scammed by him.

Luckily I did some searching on him and found him to be a fake so I didn’t lose any money just my pride by letting him fool me for 7 months.

Report to law enforcement

"Avoid him. He likes to talk on hangouts
I have reported him to social media but they didn't really do anything."

"Seen him on twitter and Instagram and I have reported him to both social media sites however he continues to operate on social media.Complete fake and even said he looks for women on these sites."

Unfortunately the site administrators of SNS and dating/matching service are unwilling to take appropriate measures when you report with certain evidences and information. Yet, you should make a claim to the site administrators, and report to the law enforcement agency (e.g. local police, FBI, Interpol ). You do not necessarily have to press charges. Information from you may help their investigation as some cases involve cross-border organized crime. Of course there are many individual fraudsters out there though.

Watch out for David Gomez Morris. He is as fake as can be. He will send you a request in FB, then heat you up in messanger. He tries to be nice and pleasant. He tries to communicate like an American, but he fails big time.

He said he was a licensed medical doctor working with UN government, and he gives medical attention to UN soldiers and UN Senior officer that are ill in Syria, but what is wrong with this? He think here in America we're dumb like him, lol.

But that's not all, I asked him his ethnic background more than once, once he answered White American Citizen, but I let it go to see how far he would try to go. I asked a second time and he said White American, but I reinforced the question after his stupid answer (Ethnic Background???) How a doctor don't know what ethnic background means.

He felt miserable and blocked me from messenger and unfriended me from FB.

Just wondering who will be the next idiot to try me, lol.

DR Roland Smith
by: Anonymous

Hi. Regarding the previous entry Dr Roland Smith uses a number of places to be 'based' but uses the same story.

Told me he was in Baghdad then Afghanistan, and wanted to move in with me once he left. Had a daughter who he 'introduced' me too. She wanted me to be her mum because her dad loved me so much(yes ok!).

uses the email drrolandsmith6@gmail and drrolandsmithmsf@gmail.

Very charming and says the right things, wanted to get married straightaway (alarm bells), very handsome in the photos he uses on social media.
Actually contacted me and sounded Nigerian, but denied it said it was because he had been working abroad.

Avoid him. He likes to talk on hangouts
I have reported him to social media but they didn't really do anything.

CORRECTION: Henry Walace → James Hopkin

I got confused about the identities (attributes) of the two men in the previous post.

The phone number 206 866-2962 belongs to James Hopkin (don't know the real name, but information from comment below).

Henry Walace who now names himself as Anthony Craven uses the email address: morninghenery82@gmail.com


Sorry about making you confused ladies.

located in Seattle
by: Anonymous

With regard to Henry Wallace or Anthony Craven mentioned on January 28, posted by the lady who met via POF, the phone number of Mr. Wallace 206 866-2962 is of Seattle, Washington (check the phone number lookup). That suspicious man uses henry82@gmail.com

But you can't detect a location of a sender using gmail email service by "view source message" unlike other email service such as outlook/hotmail.

Phone number and emails include important clues of predators, and in some cases exchanges of contacts help investigations by law enforcement agencies. So, stop contact with con artists but keep the communication record in case.

Lastly, even if you find a location of your ideal guy is in North America, Australia or Europe, it does not mean he is OK. There is an Irish perpetrator who uses his residential address in Dublin, Ireland as well as the sub-location in Seattle, US.

I was contacted by this man on POF. Said he lived in Liverpool on his profile and that he was 58. Asked to chat on WhatsApp. Told me that he works for Doctors Without Borders as a pathologist trained in combat medicine. Says he works in Aleppo but won't be specific.

Said he was a widower with a 14 year old son at boarding school. Said he was half German half American and lived in Texas. He has a very good looking profile picture. After a few days of chatting he started telling me he loved me and sending flowery texts at which point I realised he was too good to be true. I asked him to prove that he was in fact Dr Hopkin.

He Won't answer questions about himself or his family. He sent a photo of his driving licence which had the wrong date of birth on it if he was 58. I told him what I thought of him. He actually rang me up. I have more of American accent than him and I'm British. He trips himself up by using words in the wrong context or wrong tense which a well educated doctor wouldn't do.

He is now blocked. The phone number he uses is 206 866-2962

When perpetrator finds he cannot get money from the target
by: Anonymous

When a juggler finds that his target does not have money or unwillingness to send money to him, a juggler goes mad instead of leaving quietly.

An Irish airman J. P living in Dublin who has been on Veggieconnection (posing as a single guy and claims he is seeking a wife and girlfriend) talks about the financial crisis of his family business (sales of electric devices) in Waterford run by his parents and younger brother to a target he hooked. In order to get sympathy, he told about some sad stories e.g. lay-off the employees.

But when J.P noticed that a woman did not offer any financial help for his family, he does not mention about the matter anymore. Instead, after a while, J.P then talks about his dreams of after his retirement from aviation. Some of his dreams are farming and involvement in animal sanctuary. Yet when a woman shows not much interest in cooperation, suddenly a spouse of J.P appears and the couple curse and intimidate.

Despite the sudden appearance of J.P's wife, J.P has been still active on the dating site posing as a single man seeking wife and/or girlfriend.

He told me he worked in Lybia for a while and he said he met a lady there and that he had invested in her and her fathers business but on his departure her father could not pay him so he paid him in gold bars.

He was a very charming gentleman saying all the right words but that moment came when he asked for money but it was the wrong word to me and he claimed he shipped his box to Turkey but needed me to send some money so it could be delivered to his Nanny.

Ireland is a money laundering haven
by: Anonymous

Beware! Ireland is a money laundering haven and also an exporter of scammers (groups of fraudsters have been arrested in the US and Australia lately).

Even an individual whom you actually meet in person through the matching service does not mean he is real, safe and honest. Personal information such as name, DOB, residential address, phone number and family is treasure to individuals or criminal organizations for money laundering and financial fraud.

Fraudsters are not only the things about Nigeria, and much gangsters-like criminals work for well known corporates such as flag carrier.

Catfish, con-artist and married man who actually has wife often say looking for a woman who has sense of humor. This is because those perpetrators are afraid of being reported to the police or site manager of the dating site, and informed to other lured victims.

Perpetrators may want to persuade targets who notice their wrongdoings as "clever lady does not get angry, just laughs and forgets about the things".

Asking "HUMOR" for a potential partner on the dating site is one of a RED FLAG.

John Power on vegetarian dating site
by: Anonymous

Hi ladies!

If you have been communicating with the Irish airman named John Richard Power (either in Dublin or various cities in the US), stop contact and keep all corresponding records.

John Power has been on VeggieConnection about a decade and a half (joined early 2000s) for searching girlfriends and / or a wife, but he is already married. Once John Power contacted a girl on that dating site, he blocked his profile (personal ads) in order not to be viewed from the girls he hooked. He asks you to go off-line immediately and flies to see you in person very soon, could be within a couple of weeks from the initial contact!

But you will receive intimidating emails from both Mr. & Mrs Power (named Liza originally from Guatemala, one of the countries consists Northern Triangle) years later. The couple share the personal information getting from the girls whom he met on the site.

False pretence on the internet matching sites is illicit and often involved in ID theft and fraud. Therefor, you had better consult law enforcement or any authorities about the possibilities of misuse of your personal information that is given to John Power. The airline in which John Power works for turns out two arrests in 2017 who had been engaged in human smuggling by means of the workplace resources (uniforms and truck) for a long time and one of the traffickers committed money laundering as well.

BE CAREFUL!

I was contacted firstly via the Words With Friends App by Orthopaedic Surgeon Alex Williams working for the UN in Syria. After several days of nice general chit chat he asked me to download Hangouts app, which I did.

He said he was from Chicago and that his wife and eldest son were killed in an accident 5 years ago & that his youngest son is currently in a private boarding school in the US.

He said his contract was ending on 21 December & that he would be returning home to start up a lucrative business. His general chatting soon turned to romance and a marriage proposal. I then got a distressing message saying that money that was being held by a security company was going to be destroyed unless he paid the Attorney for the security company $4,000 dollars to have the suitcase holding his money ($4,000,000.00) was going to be destroyed. He said he was paid $1,000,000.00 in cash which he deposited into a locked account in the USA.

Ding...ding... scam!!!!

I played along but said I didn’t have any money to help him out & that I would have to take out a loan - that didn’t bother him. He was very careful not to answer any of my questions too. He forwarded a letter of request from the Attorney Mark Michael & when I questioned him on the fact that there was no legal firm logo or letterhead, no address & no phone number he kept on pressuring me to pay the money and do what the Attorney asked.

He has also given me the name of the secretary who would be picking the money up & her PO Box number. I told him that there needed to be a real Address not a P.O. box. I told him there was no way that I was paying any money out and called him out as a scammer.

Please if it stops just one person being scammed out of their life savings it will be worth it, I know I have lost all of my money but I won't let this evil individual bring me down, I would like to hear from anyone If I can report this low life to the FBI moneygram western union and RIA,

I have so many emails from his so called colleagues maybe just maybe he can be caught.

Take care all you beautiful woman out there. You deserve so much more than these low life's so please no matter how they flatter your ego and tell you how beautiful you are they are only after your money

Yes you have been scammed big time. This guy is somewhere in Nigeria waiting for more money from you. Why you need to walk away. Save more heartache for yourself. I know you cannot believe that he is a con but I was there and I know how hard is to accept reality. These guys should be in prison not on the dating sites. One day you are going to meet the honest one.

When you see too many loving words from the start and then they will ask for money that a sign you have to block them.

Good luck to all the single ladys looking for love.

Dr James Brown orthopaedic surgeon working in Syria for u. N.
by: Anonymous

I was contacted on Facebook by Dr James Brown who told me he was an orthopaedic surgeon on contract to the U. N. In Syria, had a daughter who was with a nanny in Australia for security reasons because of his job we spoke for a while longer told me he was a widower and wanted a serious relationship.

The first time he asked for money was for leave to come and see me and I was contacted by a supposedly lawyer who I was told would email me documents concerning the said leave but there was an international travelling fee that had to be paid before leave was granted of £1000 which stupidly I sent and then my friend contacted me and told me that u.s military couldn't fly him home alone on a jet and he would have to pay £650 towards the cost which again I sent as he told me that he couldn't access his bank account in Syria for security reasons.

Am I being scammed?

DR GARRETT MITCHEL IN DAMASCUS
by: Anonymous

He is a scammer. You should block him and save yourself a broken heart. I was there that's why I know. He was Dr EDMUND S LARSEN. See my comment from November.

Also Damascus And a very skilled scammer. Good english. And he become nasty after I refused to send money for his transport to come to see me.
He will ask for money in the near future. There is a list with UN doctors but I am sure he is not on that list.

Also watch out for new tricks they have. I met more guys online. Some will say to take their kids for holiday and will ask you to send money for their kids plane ticket. Or ask for money for a phone for that kid. Or ask for money for emergency treatment for their kid or some of these scammers will ask for your information like they are somewhere on the open seas and they are afraid of pirates and they need your information to send you a box with valuables.

Watch out if this scammer is in Syria as he will give you a UN email and you are supposed to write to this email to ask for leave for him saying you are his fiancee. The email won't be good and he will ask for your login information for your email. Did happen to me. You should block this "doctor" and walk away from him.

Good luck!!

Dr Garrett mitchell iun. Damascus’
by: Anonymous

I have been texting with this man over a month. He claims to be a widower of 7 years and having a 16 year old son, named Michael. He states he has been affiliated with the UN for 20 years and has been stationed in Damascus’s for the last 4 years... so doing the math( he says he’s 57) 57-24=33, which is about right for a specialty surgeon.

Claims to be from Hreemville North Carolina. I have searched the voter registry once I found the county. Nothing. I referred to white and yellow pages for Greenville and surrounding areas. Still nothing.

I surmised he would have finished his post grad by 1994. So went to the year book! A Garrett Michell however it was a totally different person than what Garrett michell’s profile looks like.

HE HAS TOUCHED MY HEART but I am still Leary. Especially since he advised me not to share our relationship with anyone.

ANY ADVICE, COMMENTS, would put my mind to rest.

Thanks and God bless!!

Am warning you ladies of these scammers who are using Dr pictures to scarm you and say they work for Nato in Syria. They act nice and pretend they love u but when you ask them to call with video calls they come with stories that they can't disturb patients who are sleeping.

Cut a story short they mention that they have one child in Boarding school, he is divorced and he mentions about the money they receive in Apello and it must be delivered to you and you need to sign for it but there must be a fee that you need to pay of $285 to receive the cash.

Why should l pay to receive the money which is not mine.

Maybe I look like a target but I have been approached 5 times in the last six months. I need to change my status to married. They are on the hunt all day and all night. I fell for the last one simply because of his looks. He was the image of a man I loved and lost.

Promise of love and marriage right away. He was in construction In San Antonio, Texas, a widow, with a daughter. He showed all kinds of photos and even a video while he was at a party. He gave me 2 phone numbers, but never answered. Just messages but we did text on one of the numbers.

I have an address as well. This guy was good but I questioned everything which really annoyed him. He is very good at what he does - Scamming!!

He knows how to build trust with all the photos and he even showed me him at work, sitting behind his desk (hahaha)

Now I know that he was at an internet café playing a role. I truly feel for other victims. The guy whose identity was stolen.

Dr. Cobby Brown. This con man says he is an Orthopaedic Surgeon from Everett Massachusetts. Con Man Brown can be found on Facebook, Instagram and by googling his name under scammer. This man says the most charming things to scam women in the name of love.

He stated he was divorced with one child. He advised how he was so depressed over his wife cheating on him numerous of times. He stated that he was finally ready to settle down and found true love. Cobby Brown stated he was a contracted Surgeon with the U.N. His last contract job with the U.N. was going to be in be India.

However, after a week in India, he stated that Chase Bank froze his account because someone hacked his account. Con Cobby stated he didn’t have money to return home and he wanted me to take out a $2000 loan to help him.

I informed him that I didn’t have $2000 to send him. Later he advised he had his Godson and some other people to help him but, he was still short of funds. Sadly, to say, I fell for his lies and lost $550.

Please don’t fall for this devil lies. Later, Cobby stated how heartbroken he was because he didn’t have enough money to get his flight to come see me. When I informed Cobby Brown about being a scammer, he said more charming words to deny the fact. Lastly, the turning point was when Cobby was chatting with me online and all a suddenly, he received a text from his nanny. Cobby the con artist stated that he was freaked out because his little girl need emergency surgery because she had a Wilms Tumor.

Yes, the Cobby Brown aka CON stated he needed $2000 before they would perform the surgery. At this point I advised Cobby that I wanted my money and he was a con, he then blocked me from social media.

PLEASE DON’T BE FOOL BY THIS CON.

Similar to NOV 13, 2017 post. He is a Doctor from Boston Massachusetts. Working overseas in a war zone. He lost his wife 6 years ago to cancer and has a 14 year old son who is in a UK boarding school.

My sister started chatting with him on Facebook and then Skype and Messenger. After a few days she sent a Western Union Money Order to the UK. His son had broken/lost mobile phone and he wanted $1800 to buy a new iPhone. Some security lock down story as to why he had no access to money to give son. I called him out as a scammer. She said no he wasn't...and even told him I had said that to her.

After 4 weeks she told us he wanted to fly out from where stationed to meet her and family. She talked about marriage and moving to America in the future. She borrowed money to pay for flight he said he needed money for. Myself and family were stunned and told her it was a scam and don't send the money.

Anyway he didn't make the flight. She denied he asked for money again. He told her his gold has been held up in customs and he needs $10,000 to pay taxes owed I suppose. She is angry with us and doesn't want to admit he is a fraud.

He said his wife died 4 years ago. He had a daughter Suzanne. He said he was 54 years old. Two weeks ago he did go to Syria with a UN DOCTORS TEAM. His english was really good. He said that when he leaves he will come to meet me. By last Friday he started to ask me weird guestions like what I like, which personalities I admire and why. What I will like to do in the future (my goals).

It look like a personality test. Next morning when I contacted him he asked for 40,000 Us dollars. He didn't get a penny.

Very sweet talking similar to others stories - wanted to talk via hangouts talked for about a month and appeared genuine but then the usual fell in love with me and wanted to be a couple.

Had a 8 year old daughter at boarding school. Always appeared to be able to talk via hangouts, and wanted us to go away once his mission finished.

Then asked me to help get his safe box, as the security company was folding and he needed me to keep his money safe. Money outstanding and wanted me to transfer via Western union.

This was millions of dollars and was to build a hospital.

Stopped messaging him and blocked him. Has anyone had the same experience

Today I accept for friendship a face that took me about 15 minutes talking to him to know he was BS and I blocked him. He told me he was british american but in the picture he look Hindu, and he said he was a military doctor.

I asked him what branch and he answered a surgeon, apparently military doctors don't know branch means navy, marines, army, etc. He gave me a story of a dead wife, his face profile has no likes from doctors only woman who are all divorced or single from different parts of the country, none from his supposedly home town and most important there's no doctor in US with his misspelled name.

Easy to check in the doctors online registry. Anyway I know sometimes we are lonely and want to talk to somebody, but never give your adress, restrict info they can see, never send money, and research the career they are pretending to be as easy as Google it.

Ask a difficult question and they should be able to answer and they won't. In other words if it's too good to be true, its false and all men are liars, try for a local men in your area where you can see his family, job and records.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by this man on Instagram. At first we exchanged simple information. He told me he was an Orthopedic Surgeon who had worked for MA General in Boston. He lost his wife 6 years ago and had a 14 year old son who was in boarding school.

He signed a 4 year contract with the United Nations Peace Keeping Mission. He was located in Kubul, Afghanistan.

He told me he preferred chatting on Hangouts.
We carried on chatting on Hangouts for several days, and he told me he loved me and could not wait for us to be together for a lifetime, and he also asked me to marry him.

I did see red flags so played along.

Today he asked to help get his safe box, as the security company was folding and he needed me to keep his money safe. His attorney asked for $1,200 plus personal info to get the said box to me.

I was to wire cash via Western Union.

When I confronted Frank he was furious with me as to believe he was a scammer. He even sent his UN ID to me that looks official but, doubt it is.

Has anyone heard of this guy.

I thought I saw his picture on a site called male-scammers.com. It stated he was from Nigeria. I would feel bad if he was legit, but still would not send him money. Said his birthday was 11/12. He is 62.

Hope someone can help me.

I will admit, I did enjoy all his compliments. He stated he signed up for a 5 year contract with the United Nations working as a cardiologist.

He "loved me" so much he wanted to break his contract and come here with me. The catch was he needed $1200 for permission to leave on a vacation. As much as he professed his undying love for me, I came up with all kinds if excuses why I didn't have any money to send.

He eventually said he saw no future in our relationship and needed to end his heartache for not being able to leave Syria asap.

Beware ladies.
by: Anonymous

I'm going through the same thing now. I was found through Facebook. I looked up his profile picture. He is definitely a good looking man and tells you everything a woman wants to hear. He said he was a doctor and that his wife has passed and he has a five-year-old son. Things went great the first few days until he started asking me for money telling me his child has malaria and needs to medication.

But I told him I didn't have it and he asked if I could send him a credit card. I told him my situation and it was impossible and why would he be asking me for help when you're a doctor. I'm sure he would have plenty of credit cards. He told me because of being in the UK Bank of America closed his account and he doesn't have access to it. I work for a bank and I know that if you have an account with us you can definitely call and tell them your situation and they will not freeze your account.

I'll tell you ladies he's really good at what he says and how he makes you feel. If he asks you to file for vacation time and tell them you were his fiancé, don't do it as it will cost you money and it all goes to his pocket. If you need to request time off he himself can do so without any money coming out of your pocket.

Beware ladies. He is handsome and easy to talk to.

Twitter UN doctor
by: Jessica

So this man sent me a couple of DM's on Twitter before I finally responded. He was clearly trying to charm me, sending me a video of that titanic song and stuff.

Same story as most. This man claims he is a doctor with the UN in Afghanistan. Has been in the US military for 14 years. Plans on retiring when he is done in 15 months, and opening a hospital. I didn't let him get to the point of asking me for money. I just talked to him yesterday and stopped it today. He claimed that his wife died from polycystic kidney disease 8 years ago and he was ready to move on. Says he doesn't have any kids. Said he was from Washington DC, but lives in Baltimore, MD. But somehow, he spent most of his time in the UK?

His English was broken and he seemed confused by situations happening in the US (such as insurance stuff, in regards to hospitals). Nothing really seemed to add up.

He had way too much time to spend on Twitter for being a military doctor dealing with a suicide bomber a couple of days ago. He was messaging me all day, which I ignored, because I had stuff to do. Then all night. It was like he never slept, and the times didn't add up (if he was actually in Afghanistan). It would add up better if he was in Nigeria.

I woke up this morning to this poem:

"The darkness of the night has disappeared and the moon has taken shelter. Now, the sun is here and the sky is as blue as ever. Wake up and open your beautiful eyes because I have a little sweet word for you. Good morning dear friend"

It's listed word for word on a site for poems for your lover, LOL! I'm a softy, so I was nice about putting a stop to it. Since he didn't ask me for money yet, I don't 100% know it's a scam, but it seems very, very fishy (especially since there are a couple of similar profiles with a variation of the name). But I just told him I wasn't interested.

I've gotten friend requests from these guys on Facebook since my status changed to widowed a couple of years ago. They are easy to tell on Facebook (few photo's, no postings, friends, ect). But on Twitter, I made the mistake of engaging.

Be very careful ladies! Most of these military love seekers are scammers just looking to hook you and get your money. Please don't fall for it! They know that women who are widowed are vulnerable and they want to take advantage.

Like others have said, if it's too good to be true, it is!

Beware - Williams Clems
by: Anonymous

This man calls himself Williams Mason Clems/Williams Clems or Clems Williams. He says he is an orthopaedic surgeon in the UN, says he is a widow and his wife died about 4 years ago and he has 1 daughter. He immediately asked for an ITunes card to be sent to him saying he urgently needed private internet access.

He suggested gmail Hangouts. Calls people "Dear". He is a scammer so everyone beware. He must believe that his good looks will get him whatever he wants! I don't believe he is a surgeon or doctor, if he was he would have plenty of money and I don't believe that the photo is of himself.

If he contacts you delete him immediately, he is a scammer!!!

Jason Wong in CMB - freelance engineer based in London
by: Anonymous

Jason said he is in love with me after 3 short chat on the dating app. He claimed to be a freelance engineer and hv taken courses on architect and based in London. After we have one call, he kept on calling every day, morning and before sleep and always said call in love with me without a reason. I worked in an UK based company and chat with UK workmates frequently. I questioned to his non England accent and he claimed I’m the first one to tell him such.

He asked for my WeChat account and claimed that he doesn’t use other chat apps but WeChat. Sounded weird for a UK man, right?. He doesn’t have fixed colleagues and physical company coz of cost saving but can bid a GBP 45Billion project in Dubai. Amazing.

One of his past projects in Turkey got collapsed, and the responsible person got in touch with him and asked him to get to Turkey and handle the case. A mature businessman like Jason didn’t check for the actual situation, like injuries and just went alone without colleagues (he claimed freelance and keeps no colleagues) and lawyer.

He lost his wallet in Turkey and didnt know what to do and needed to seek my advice. I got him to report to police and cut all the cards. He can finish police reporting and cut 3-4 cards, and suspend online banking within 15 min. Thoughout the process, he acts like a teenager and didn’t know what to do.

In the end, he asked for money because he has cut all the cards. He wants me to send a small amount to his UK lawyer for his airticket thru western union. Lawyer should be paid in one bill. Even for airticket, he should be sent to the law firm’s account but not personal account I believe.... just want to see how this game goes.

Dr. Frank Andrea on Hangouts
by: Anonymous

Was contacted via facebook and asked to join hangout right away. Said he was a Doctor with the NATO Organization (I have friends who work for NATO) stationed in Syria (right, right, right).

Claimed to be from Italy and a widower with a 15 yr old son named Dennis who goes to a boarding school in Georgia. In all honesty, I was having fun with this guy because I knew he wasn't for real. I asked for a video in real time of him saying hello to me and he sent a old video of some doctor he's been impersonating. Said his specialties were pediatric, plastic, vascular and general surgery.

That list doesn't even make sense. LOL...After 3 days of chatting, suddenly he's in love. Laughable! He sent a picture of whatever doctor he was impersonating saying he was "just starting work" but whoever he was he didn't realize there was a clock on the wall in the background of the photo. Clock said 8:05 yet if he's in Syria, it should've said 3:05 because of the time difference.

I finally had enough fun after sending a message that if he ever tried contacting me again, I'd report him to the proper authorities. Deleted hangout app from my phone. This is all so comical to me!!!

Seems this is also happening to gay men, like me. Someone with this name contacted me on OKCupid, claiming to be a UN orthopedic surgeon in Yemen. Says he was born in Venice, is divorced, has 12-year-old daughter with wife who slept with his best friend.

We've been emailing and chatting on Google Hangouts for days, but then I finally googled him, the only hits of any use were on Facebook, where someone with this name is on with pictures like those he had sent me of himself and the daughter, but the older posts are all seemingly related to Africa.

When I challenged him, he acted all hurt and sent me a photo of an Italian passport that looks genuine--but of course this can be a case of identity theft.

Hello, I wondered if anyone had been contacted by someone using this name, claiming to be an orthopedic surgeon from Venice, Italy, working with the UN in Yemen and living in White Plains, NY, when off duty. Says he has a 12-year-old daughter, Tracy, who lives in Virginia with his ex-wife, who broke his heart by cheating on him with his best friend. He has been emailing me daily with extravagant professions of love, YouTube music, etc., and says he would give up the UN job to be with me.

We have also been chatting on Google Hangout. When I challenged him yesterday after I found this and similar sites through Googling, he emailed me a copy of an Italian passport for someone with the name he uses--the photo looks like the photos he had sent earlier and all the information on birthdate, etc., agrees with what he had told me, but of course that doesn't prove that he is actually that person.

He also says he will skype but has to do it from an information center. (I've never skyped so would have to find out how myself.) A Facebook page for someone with his name shows pictures of the same person and of the daughter (or the girl he'd sent me pictures of), but they were added just a few days ago and the older entries on the page seem to be related to Indonesia or Africa. (Of course, he claims to have visited 60-70 countries with his UN work.)

Any information would be appreciated--thanks.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Dr scammer Liar

Ladies all these Dr's are scammers. There are 1 or 2 scammers behind good looking pics for Drs. However they not real.

Scammers tell the same stories & read it from a script. They start off sweet talking & then before you know it they have a sad story & just need to borrow from you until they get back to the states & then promise to pay you back.

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.

I was scammed until all my money was gone. I worked a lifetime for it. Ladies it never happens. Money & a Dr you have never seen & they want to build a hospital.

FUNNY takes billions for that.

Wants a wife to take care of his son. Says he loves me without seeing me or talking to me on the phone. Has broken English in his writing. Often doesn't use correct syntax. He seems to have a lot of time to talk.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Armando Clemmer Orthopaedic Surgeon - Syria
by: Anonymous

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.

Good stuff.

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.

Me too
by: Anonymous

Thru POF, I met this good guy and we exchanged pictures. I liked him at least the guy in the picture was handsome and of course I like him.

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.

Ladies be aware of these scammers as they will break your heart but NOT MY BANK ACCOUNT...

Lately I have been picking new players to play scrabble (words with friends) and got the same old line. I am a widower with one child, I'm an orthopedic surgeon working for the UN. I called him on it and he was quite indignant.

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?

Charming doctor
by: Anonymous

I met a charming 'doctor' on Tinder who is very good looking and around 6 pictures downloaded. Goes under the name of Johnson Owen. Classic back to front name. He said he was a Orthopaedic Surgeon born in the UK and raised in USA, divorced, daughter 16 in boarding school in Thailand!!

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.

Be brave ladies and try not to fall for these professional scum bags, as there are LOTS out there.

GR contacted me via FB claiming to be a general surgeon with the UN serving U.S. soldiers in Syria for the past 8 months (due home in September). He claimed that he's originally from CA and now works in Cleveland.

Check: he's a widower. Check: he has a 15-year-old son. Check-not: he's using photos of an actual Dr. Garth Davis. I contacted Dr. Davis via FB. He estimates 10-20 daily scams using his info!

Randy Watson Vascular Surgeon in Syria
by: Anonymous

I met a person on instagram called Randy Watson who says he is in Syria on peace keeping. He says he is a vascular surgeon. He asked for a vacation to come to the states to meet me. He says he is originally from Taos New Mexico and he was in New Jersey. He is a widower with a 15 year old son away at boarding school in New Zealand. He wants me to send him money for a plane ticket back to the states. Or to accept his allowance. I have said no to both.

He has had his son contact me and the sons name is Jeff. But his name comes up William Davis 0650.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this person?

Victim of UN Doctor military
by: Rowena

Im very sad. That all i read relates to what happened to me last week that I met a Doctor who works in Syria. He said I should send money to make our marriage certificate to get the conpensation money off his wife. I believed him because he sent me the certificate and I sent $2800 but he asked for S6700 more and I dont have it. Already he got mad and finished the relationship so I started thinking that it is only a scam and then I read your website.

I wish and Pray the return my money that I only borrowed.

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...........

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

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.

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.

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.

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 .

UN Dr in Yemen
by: Anonymous

This is a scam. The picture is not a picture of him. He is trying to extract money. He did the same to me under a different name, but the moment he asked for money and fell in love in 3 days, I terminated the contact.

He goes from name to name and dating sites to Facebook.

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.

DO NOT give him any money at all for any reason. Remember the picture you see is someone else's picture being used fraudulently.

Doctor working for UN in Yemen?
by: Anonymous

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?

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.

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

($ 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

I told him yes and I pay him on Monday.

Another UN surgeon James Miller

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!

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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."

Hello, I've been contacted by a cardio doctor. He is suppose to be in Aleppo. He didn't ask for money yet, but he is in love with me after 3 weeks contacting. Now we are chatting by hangout, and he has very nice English, and says that he is divorced and no kids.

He contacted me by Facebook, and after he got my email address his page FB disappeared. So far he seems to say the trues, but I don't ask too much, I'm not really interested in him. He sent me a bunch of pictures, and asks all the time for mine.

I'm from France, and he is promising to come to see me as soon as his contract ends, at the end of May. He told me he's 50 yeas old, but on FB page he was 48. I'm just keeping in touch till he asks me for money or another kind of bad thing.

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Ladies, thank you so much for sharing your experience!!! I am in a virtual relationship with an orthopedic surgeon, who works in Syria under UN. He is planning to come back to Toronto on March 15th and cant wait for seeing me meeting him at the airport.

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 this is a classic scam. Do not send him any money, you will just be asked to send more and more. This handsome picture is stolen off another site.

The Messenger is also a classic sign of a scam. As I always say, cut all communication immediately.

Please think about this, I know it all happened to me.

Scammed again
by: Anonymous

Ladies...I swear they're all the same person or group of people....It is their "job" to get as much money from older, divorced, widowed, wealthy women as they can.

The more money they get...The higher bonuses they get.

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!

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.

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.

by: Anonymous

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!

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.

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.

Thanks for the info. This guy has to be stopped. Somebody is going to fall for his line of lies. I reported him to. Tinder and that other one who says his name is Margolis. He is back also just with different cloths. Makes u wonder how good Tinder checks their people.

To all the woman out there be proud and confident and love yourself. Be happy. And know if it sounds to good to be true it probably is.

UN Otho on Facebook
by: Anonymous

I got a friend request from a man claiming to be Joel Iverson from Milan, Italy, a widowed surgeon with the UN living in SF.

Photo of an extraordinarily good looking man about 50. I would normally ignore this, but for some reason I googled him and there is a Joel Iverson from Milan, Michigan, but he is much younger.

Then, I found this site.

Anyway, I deleted that request and suggest you do, too!

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.

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

These are all the other necessary requirements before she proceeds.

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.
