Oil Rig engineer for dating scam

by Nancy
(USA)

I had a fun time with my scammer. We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat.

His profile was pretty good. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. Broken English. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him.

He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy.

Every morning there was a heart poem.

Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled!

Nigeria, Spain, London, Dublin Ireland.

I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him. That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. I showed him a copy of his ip trace..he said I would die - be killed.

The picture he posted was awsome. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him.

Never the same story
by: Anonymous

I think this is more than just one person. Look how many of us were fooled in the last few days.
He sent me pictures of some guy, maybe took them from an Facebook account. The real Fredrik Lundstrom looks different. He just copied the CV.
Thinking about contacting LinkedIn and the real Fredrik to let them know what's happened.

Pictures will not help you. Keep in mind, they are using stolen photos and will use numerous identities. Even if you are being scammed (which you are), by the same freak with the same photos, as other women, it will not do you any good.

They lie with every word out of their mouths. He will only tell you that someone stole HIS identity!

Get out of it and fast.

No good will come out of it.

How are you ,

I read your profile on linked-in and you caught my eye,I am interested in communicating more and sharing more about me with you and hope to learn more about you too that is if you are single and interested in communicating further.This is all new for me, it is the first time i would ever go against protocol of doing business only on the Linked-in website. I do believe everything is possible if we put our mind and heart together just like i believe that good things can be found in the least places and when we least expect .I do not just give out my personal details like email or phone numbers to people on linked-in or off it, but i am willing to make a compromise to communicate with you so here am i emailing you off the site because i really wanted to touch base with you.

I am interested in communicating more this is me being honest .I hope no offence is taken , i understand the medium is a business networking medium and not a dating or social networking website and i don't intend to use it for one .I will wait for your response soon hopefully, mean while my profile on linked-in is on my name AUSTIN WAGNER .You should check me out and let me know what you think. I have no picture on my profile so i am sending you couple of recent pictures too just so you know what i look like.


Warm Regards,

He found me on Words with Friends, his name is Kenny Howard, and immediately fell in love with me. Such a charming man and pictures were fantastic. 62 years old. Oil Rig engineer off the coast of California with 60 employees. He should be writing for the movies because his words were fantastic. I’m ashamed to say I fell for this for about two weeks until he made a few mistakes in his writings to me. Never asked for anything other than my love.

Must be a little scared now as he cancelled his phone number.

John Hansen Scammer claiming from Netherlands
by: Maria K

I suspected this guy was a scamme from the second text. I copied and pasted a part of a text as it sounded choreographed. Found it and then stumbled on this site. Pretty much a playbook. Divorced single father. 16 yr old son in boarding school and name is Kelvin.

Disposed of him quickly. Started randomly chatting on words with friends. Claims to be from The Netherlands. Scary that some women fall for this. Not this chick. I work hard for my money. Like some loser will get it.

by: Anonymous

I have a 571-132 number which in Accra Ghana. Which got awful bitter and angry when I said I would not send him no money, I mean he was mean saying I want you to die and he has no food to eat but he had 80 American dollars to go buy a pair of soccer shoes of that one of the cup players wore and they are in his name. Funny isn't it. Nice and bright pink.

Please be careful all, I talked to this man's brother who lives in Nigeria and he asked me a simple question " Do you not ever get tired of him asking for money" and he said they are and most are squatters and will live off anyone they can just so they use and get money from American women. He said he works hard to support his family and does not believe in what his people over there are doing.

So Please again be careful. Today I got four friends requests of white men which it does not matter for I am not Prejudice but I look at all the likes and every single one was Nigeria and Ghana. So that told me these men stole the pictures of innocent men.

God Bless Each and Everyone.

Tim potente.aka environmental engineer. Doing his thing off the coast of alaska. He went to all the same school's as all the others. On a hunch I checked his given local address. Didn't live there or even in the town. One thing led to another. Police report done. Much more to do in the am. This is new today. Mixed emotions. What a fool I am.

Beware people. He should get an academy award or Oscar for his acting. I trace his phone to Nigeria even though the area code was Virginia which is where he said he moved from to Rochester area.

This is a classic case and I'm sickened by it all.

Edward Olof - claims he is on an oilrig in Prudhoe Bay - 65 widower, wife and child died 8 years ago. Looking to retire - claims has petroleum engineer degree from Germany but speaks no German??? - and has accent and says he was born in Long Island but cannot find any thing and he has no trace online.

Mother is Rose. Nice looking pictures, middle of the head bald and white hair on sides. Has not asked for money - but when I ask to do a video call he says security prevents that - very suspicious = So I broke it off - his letters are very eloquent and good English. But he cannot explain the accent.

Contacted me on LinkedIn. Widower, wife Anna passed MS, daughter Sarah, 7 years, living with his parents in Stockholm. Talked so much about how he needs someone to help him getting back to life, out of his shell, new mother for Sarah.

Little details made me suspicious, he never sent a current picture. Realised something's wrong when he called. Really bad accent and a young, high voice. Didn't work with the pictures. Started searching for him again and found the Facebook profile of the real Fredrik Lundstrom. He copied his whole life, school, jobs, etc. Confronted him with that and deleted everything.
So much detail and organisation.

David Webb
by: Anonymous

I hit few scammers on Instagram. Last one claimed to live in Atlanta and similar story about living in Brazil and then moving with his mother to US. He had his pics stolen as I discovered later who the real person is. When he asked for some money he needed for his business I called him a scammer and he told me not to talk to him again.

Later he came back confessing to me that he is not real and if we can stay friends. He was 31 year old Nigerian behind it. We became friends but I think they never change finding different ways to scam you as friends. They give you poor stories about their life so you feel sorry for them.

It is better to block and never talk to them. I was in a big scam three years ago, and lost almost everything so I can tell today who is honest and who is not. Too bad we learn after making bad decisions.

Block him ASAP.

David Webb
by: Anonymous

I have just been talking with Mr. Webb, who says I was on his recommended friends on Instagram. He has a whole profile full of photos, but I think I have seen some of them before on the internet. They are basically photos of a body builder and his kids.

Anyway, he is pressing me for a recent photo, which I declined, telling him I am waiting for my hair to grow back after cancer treatment (true). I could tell immediately that he was a scammer, as his grammar and phrasing are not that of an English speaker and he claims to live in Atlanta. When pressed a bit, he claims to have grown up in Brazil and has an American mother.

I figure the longer I can keep him engaged, the less time he has to prey on someone who might actually believe the scum.

This is about the 10th request I have received on Instagram in the last month, and I have about 5 requests waiting on Facebook. I wish I could do something to stop them permanently, but in the meantime I will string him along.

I am sorry to tell you that if he is in Nigeria he lives in Nigeria. They use their own people to be on the Rigs. They stay on the Rigs so they are not in a hotel room. Think you have been scammed sorry to say. If you keep it up you will be totally broke because just sending him 150 dollars of ITunes cards tells him you have money. If you keep on with him it will not stop believe me I have been there. Hope you realize what you have yourself in.

This sounds like the guy I am playing words with friends with. He said that he was from the states. He did say his wife and child were deceased. I tell him to go away to play the game and not worry about what I am doing. He is still playing. I have no time. The more I tell him I am not interested, the more he comes after me with his messages.

After spending months romancing victims, he desperately and urgently needs money to release a contract and cannot go to anyone else except the victim whom he "loves so much" (this after just a few days of conversation on Facebook).

Fake company and account is given someplace in Istanbul for wire transfer. Unfortunately I know someone who has fallen for this.

Scammer from Vancouver, BC
by: Susan in Indiana

I met this man on May 1st on Instagram. He said he wanted to be friends. He said he was going to an oil rig and would be there for three weeks. When he was on the oil rig he started asking for itunes cards. I sent him $150 in gift cards.

Before he left the oil rig he asked me to help him feed his crew.

After he left the oil rig he went to Nigeria where I believe he is still there. He has asked me to help with a hotel bill, money to ship his tools back to British Columbia, help with an airline ticket, and also help with being discharged from a hospital, where he was for several days.

How could I be so stupid? This man has conned me out of several thousand dollars which I will not ever see again.

He may never make it to Heaven!

A RIG guy from Sweden
by: HMM

Hello ladies, I also met a oil rig guy from facebook, and he talked so much about romance and said fall in love with me. He is a widow, wife and son all died by a car accident and he trust nobody. We wrote email day by day. 2 days ago, he asked for help from me, he said that a part of the rig (I forgot the name) was broken accidenly by his workers, and he wanted to buy a another one and he cannot do the bank transfer maybe because of his location, otherwise he cannot finish the contrat with ENI SPA.

He also showed me the bank account, and he told me to login, and I did. I think he just wanted me to believe that he has money. He said that he cannot do the transfer, and ask me to go to bank for him, and I said I do not have money and he asked me to borrow it. Hahahha I did not reply to him anyway. Could anyone tell me, how could a real engineer not have friends who can help him?

By the way, he even sent me a contract. Soooooo professional. I checked his facebook, there were some comments said that account was hacked by the real original owner's friends.

Scammer Andy Kay
by: Anonymous

A con man with pictures of Lee Lessack. On the road since 2017. More names of other women found on the net: Roland Williams, Matteo Tom, David Richards, Kelvin Richards.

Pose as contractor and work for Chevron. Profiles on Facebock, LinkedIn and Xing as well as on partner sites.

He's a 52-year-old widower working in Aberdeen for the oil company. Has a daughter Mia 12 years living in Indianapolis with a nanny.

IP address from America, mobile number +44 7597578463 England. Mails came with 2 hours delay, probably Nigeria.

His story: Urged to WhatsApp Chat, then daily news, great love, often asked if I eat well, talks little about his work at the beginning. Asked me how I live, if I have a house and how much rent I have to pay. Sent many pictures, all stolen by Lee Lessack. 1 phone call, very loud hum on the line, broken English, spoke very fast, voice sounded very young! Then came a new large order for 3.600.000,-€. Sent a photograph of the document via WhatsApp.

Funny for a company with one man! The contract was a fake. Then machines should come from China and he had to take over 30% of the contract price! He had to sell his house in Indianapolis, he risked everything. When he realized that I didn't fall for it the Chats became less and less, then I approached him with Lee Lessack, then I was blocked!

Please don't believe these stories, they just want our money, and nothing else.

We all need to fight these scammers. He came up on my word feud game. Started out with messages and family sob stories, he worked on Mideastland but lived in Texas born in Paris. One night he said I found this site we can chat easier on called hangouts of course I downloaded because I thought he was harmless.

He would send songs from you tube and I would send ones to him. He had pictures of this guy who was handsome in his work clothes on a rig. He had a picture of him in the bathroom with a towel on and sunburned I could see a ring mark on the finger and asked about it. He said it was the ring from him and his dead wives but took off now that he wanted to start a new life. He had a picture of his so called 7 year old daughter having her birthday cake the unsocialized nanny got.

I feel sorry for the people who’s pictures are stolen. Yes it was nice to hear kind things when going thru bad times but I caught on and played him for awhile. Get strength against these scammers and they get upset very easy.

Oil rig engineer scams
by: Anonymous

Beware ladies of a very handsome man using the name Drew Phelps Johnson, as I'm sure this man's profile was stolen and the man pretending to be Drew Johnson are not the same person. We met on FB and very quickly he told me he loved me. Every morning there were beautiful poems, love songs send to me. He told me he was a widower, lost his wife in childbirth with their second child and that he had a 15yr. Old daughter in boarding school in Canada. Things kept going with us for 7 months and when I wouldn't do anything for him he started getting distant with me.

But even before that he wouldn't answer personal questions I asked him which was a red flag. When I asked him for a recent picture of him working on the offshore rig, he said his camera didn't work, and when I asked him how he took all the pictures he already sent, he said that they were old ones.

When I suggested he have one of his co-workers take one on their phone, send it to his phone, then he could send it to me, he said he would if he could, and right there I knew he wasn't the man in the pictures he send to me. These men are very clever, charming and very deceitful.

More scammers
by: Wiser Now

Morgan Daniels got in touch with me too and I was scammed by Jeffblak01 on Twitter but when Morgan showed up I was still raw from before and blocked him fast. My scammer got me for 28,000 bucks and some of it has to be paid back every month but I am making headway on saving back too.

I think the scammer had me under a spell cause really how could someone on the other side of the globe tell a person to send thousands of dollars.

I have blocked and reported 11 men and they will keep asking until you are broke or refuse them and then they desert you as if you are a throw away tin can. I try not to hate and be bitter as I have learned a hard lesson. Anyone who's been scammed knows it is a sickening feeling after the damage and it takes time to heal time and to recover losses and not trust them liars ever again.

My scammer just left me hanging but then he came back time after time with friendly Hellos and try to butter me up.

It saddens me that someone else is now his target for his lies and deception. I pray he does not prosper on womens backs. I did turn mine into the police but they said "little hope in finding him" but maybe the mules or bank accounts can be warched now.

I think they work in groups of several scamners

He appears to have a point person (a woman named Judith) in Houston assisting him. When I emailed her asking some questions about him, they both immediately disappeared off LinkedIn all together. I traced his LinkedIn account and it came up with Nigeria.

Names of Scammers
by: Anonymous

I was reading a post from a woman on here. After I was scammed the first time, I have had approx. 8 more since than. My emails were full of SPAM, X rated emails starting appearing. I know their MO now, I thought. Please these are the names I have had so far:

Morgan Daniels aka Joshua Morgan, Anthony Morgan and he has a friend. Oil, in Dubai

Christoper Jacobs, picture of a 8yr old, all fake

George Agrim, San Diego, was going to jump overboard

Alondra & Robert. Santa Barbara POF

Alen Hunter, Santa Barbara, with a baby, all fake.

Reg Anderson, Ca.

Roderick Tyrell, portraying a body builder, come on. I found the real person behind the pictures.

I just got rid of 2 from POF, they are full of them: Wesside with huge dog, from Santa Barbara.
I forgot the names of the other 3 men. This is very traumatic but helpful when I talk about this.

All of these men are on a rig, or Dubai or South Africa. I even picked some people who were not that good looking, they were all scammers. I wonder how I keep getting them. I heard they pass your name around to others. If they say, HELLO PRETTY, MY QUEEN, WIFE, RUN AND DON'T LOOK BACK.

I found most of them thru Tin Eye & Google Search. I did this with every picture until the right one hit. Its very shocking at first. Every single time, they would already be in Africa or all of a sudden have to leave somewhere. Same MO every time.

I lost my job recently. 2 of them knew that and they didn't even care. They would act like they did, then in their 2nd breath ask, when can I get that money? Just know that they would have taken all I had and not look back just makes me cringe.

We have to stop this. All of it. PLEASE SEND NO MONEY TO PEOPLE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN AND OR MET IN PERSON, AND I MEAN BY TOUCHING THAT PERSON.

Referring to 14 Jan & 11 Apr posts, this Frank Chan is still around. We met each other on Tinder and he asked me to switch onto wechat immediately for private chat.

This scammer is using very nice profile pictures which did catch my attention immediately. The identity is as follows: born in Singapore, moved to Canada at very young age and now having his own company as a private contractor on oil exploration projects. He sent me an email a couple days after we start chatting using a new email address (frankchanking1@gmail.com)

He called me a week later, the voice sounds pretty young and doesnt come with a Canadian accent. This did alert me a little bit.

Then we continue chatting, shortly after he won a bidding to go to kuwait immediately for a 6wk project, worth of 1.2 mil. The payment term is that he needs to lay out all the expenses until he finishes 70% of the job. However the return can go up to 500k on one project. Of course his easy-to-break-down machine has to go with him into Kuwait.

And then I found this website!

Throughout the chats, he was trying to fish out his info and so he confirmed his "chinese" name is Jianhong and the mobile is still +1(514)700-6871 which proved everything.

Today is the 2nd week hes been in "kuwait" and 4th week after we start talking. First time hes telling me that he stayed up the whole night to work on the panel (worth of 200k) due to overheating. He claimed that everything is now under control and he hopes the situation will remain.

The show has begun!

Watch out ladies, Frank Chan is still alive

Words With Friends2
by: Anonymous

I recently installed the new version of WWF2 on my phone. I had been playing the older version for six years and had one scammer. Went by the name of CHRIS ANDERSON. After finally catching on and blocking him, I started getting more game requests from scammers. Could not understand how all of a sudden so many were finding me randomly.

It then occurred to me that it could have been CHRIS ANDERSON because he possibly had my user name, or it was his so-called CO-WORKERS.

So, I went into my profile and changed my user name and they ALL went away.

After installing the newer, better version I have been contacted by the following scammers:

Morgan Kelvin Kelvin
Jim Cantrell
Alexander Coman
David Jakub Caldwell
David Silas
Corey Anderle
Williamrich055
Geroge Peterson
RobertM12345
Mccaslinmark5
Mark Logan
Frank Wayne
Spencer Harry
Alex Adrew

And they ALL start the chat. Curiosity got the best of me so I played along. They ALL say the SAME THING. Hello Pretty, hello beautiful or just Hello. They want to know where you are from, they all want to know if you are married.
Two of them even said this: Are you still married with grown kids??

Yeah, right.

This game seems different as far as how they are finding us because WWF2 is showing our photos and putting us in as game suggestions.

My user name is now showing as my real name.

One of the "game of the day" players was a very attractive woman that was playing with the Jim Cantrell character because it does show you if they are playing with other people you are playing with. So, I sent her a game request and she declined it! Maybe she likes only playing with men.

But, Jim got friendly and after a few back and forth chats, he told me he was a subcontractor for an oil and gas company. I responded with "are you on a rig" and he blocked me!!!

I know most of us on this site are savvy but just in case, ladies please beware. They do not care one bit about you.

They want your money!!!

Oil rig scammers THOMAS TOMCHAK ANDREI
by: Anonymous

I found my scammer on tinder. He says his name is Thomas Tomchak, he has a 12yr daughter in boarding school in California. His wife died of cancer. He is Romanian but a citizen of the U.S. He works for BP oil company and is off shore in Louisiana. He said all the right things he ask me to get a app called google hangout so we could FaceTime. So I did and he seemed real, he was charming, kind, thoughtful, but when he sent me a pic of his bank account which had close to a million dollars in it and then asked me for a $15 iTunes card, I was like really!!!

So I accused him of being fake and he had the nerve to be offended. But still tried to prove himself he sent a pic of his passport but I’m sure that’s fake. So ladies if it sounds to good to be true it is!!!! He didn’t get anything from me but my attention. Now he doesn’t even have that!!!

From Denmark, but named Tony Clinton
by: Anonymous

Good grief, how sickening to think there are so many of these scammers. Yes, he said he was a industry engineer with a crew of 20 men, yet used broken English in typing, and in the occasional phone call but sounded so charming, and after all, English was his second language. Oh yes, born in Denmark, but lost his parents when he was so young- never could find out how young- and his fathers guardian was an American who gave him his American name- and dual citizenship.

Amazing! Lost his wife to cancer five years ago, left with a daughter who's 11 and in boarding school in Denmark; all so traumatic he never thought he'd love again, but in no time at all I'm the love of his life- beyond compare.

Yes need a helicopter to get him off the rig because he can't wait to see me and one problem after another, and so hard for me to understand why anyone who won a contract bid with an oil company has to scrounge for $$$ to do anything.

We connected through messenger but uses WhatsApp. His profile pix changed. Oh phone number reold??? Oh my Goodness, the lies pile on lies- who knows who the photos really are of- Facebook stolen I;m sure from some persons open page. Sick to think he's sent me photos of "him" with his daughter at young age, and now, and his parish priest.

Unbelievable work to create a scam.

Contract Engineer in Scotland
by: Anonymous

Well I'm so happy I found this site after only a week. He messaged me on Words with Friends where we began to chat, then he suggested Hangouts. He was Jacki Roach, 51 working on an oil rig for Maersk in Aberdeen Scotland with a 15 year old son back home with a nanny (he even sent me a pic of his adorable son) and was a widower of 8 yrs.

His wife was Jennifer and died of cancer. Also his parents died at age 12 and he was raised by a neighboring teacher. He had 2 months left on his contract. He came on fast and strong with the sweet talk but of course I ate it up because I've been alone 18 yrs. His picture looked like a movie star. But some of his answers just didn't sit right with me. When I'd question him, of course he would act like, " you have to trust me baby. How can you think that of me. Blah blah blah."

It gave me something to look forward to every day (but I also stayed stressed because something in my spirit kept telling me something wasn't right)He would txt me all through the day and night. Asking what I ate, etc like he really cared about my well being. Then he asked for an iTunes card. When I told him I didn't like that, he apologized profusely for making me feel bad.

Anyway, after a while I bought him a $50 iTunes card (HE ASKED FOR $200 card). He acted so appreciative but then the next day he asked for another $25 one. I got really upset and then came the apologies. After a week of answers that didn't add up, and me searching online for any proof of his wife's death, more pics, ANYTHING, the last straw was when he told me it was 1am when it should've been 12 am (there was supposed to be a 6 hr difference).

I got online once again and found this website that came straight from heaven.

I messaged him and told him he was going to burn in hell and I see he tried to message me back through my email saying " please baby explain. This isn't you. What's wrong?" Sometimes you want to believe something so bad you ignore all the signs. I'm just glad I got out now. I just feel bad for the real guy who's in the pic.

The real oil rig workers
by: Anonymous

Dear ladies. My dear friend is a senior paramedic working on an oil rig off the Angloan coast. She is part of a experienced medical team and there is a doctor on board as well. The "real" oil rig workers have full access to top medical treatment. They are flown back to South Africa by helicopter if they are in need of more advanced medical treatment. They have kitchens and canteens supplying good food, so they never starve!

All transportation on and off the rig is paid for by the oil company. Equipment required for repairs and maintenance is flown in. These men and women are hardworking, dedicated workers, often working in hazardous conditions. They don't have the time or inclination for constant social media chit chat. The majority of them are married with children.

Take everything these criminals tell you with a pinch of salt. They are all liars!!

Just block the scumbags.

57, Widow, with 2 yo daughter, and his mother lives with him. First request for money (after sweet talking for a month) was to help purchase a puppy for his daughter's birthday. Shot down.

2nd request was for money to buy his family food for when he was away on the rig. Shot down again. Said he ended up taking a title loan on his truck.

3rd and final request was for money to cover his medication on the rig as he became very sick. This request came after he sent me a picture of the rig, which I immediately found on Google Pictures.

Asked how he got a picture of the outside of the rig and he said there were two. After continued begging for money cause he was dying, I told him I found the picture and goodbye, and blocked.

Anyone heard of Stepan Wagner from hamilton?

Recently met Stepan Wagner on Match and have been chatting for a few weeks but hasn't asked for money or anything but after reading this I decided to try look him up. Couldn't find a single thing but he mentioned he is a Petroleum Engineer and just about to leave for Belgium. The number he contacted me from went no where when I called it back.

Very strange as I can't find him on Facebook or LinkedIn or anywhere. Is there a way to download a pic? The pic I got of this man is very attractive, dark hair, was pictured in a plane in business class, also has a professional looking photo with a light blue button down shirt with greenery of trees in the background. Said he's 52 from Germany and now living in Canada. His wife died of cancer 8 years ago, no kids, no family.

Sound familiar to anyone?

Jeff Hewitt - Words with Friends / Words 2 SCAMMER
by: Anonymous

From the first few messages I received from this "Jeff Hewitt", I knew he was a Nigerian scammer. Sadly, there are now thousands of these scammers preying on women playing games/apps on their phones/tablets/computers. I met my "Jeff" while playing Words 2 on my phone. I am fairly young at 36 but have been very lucky in the aging department because I look about 20. I am a fairly attractive blonde with blue eyes. For some reason, I get no less than 20 messages each day while playing Words 2...95% from men double my age, triple if you assume I look 20.

I just want to play the dang game but spend a lot of time telling people to eff off because I know they are all scammers. But seriously, why would a 65 year old send me a message and think I would want to talk to them? I feel the need to not ignore these scammers and happily cuss each one out and tell them its time for a name/pic change because I will be posting their fake name & pic currently being used.

Anywho...MY "Jeff"...I know he lives in Nigeria, but I felt I needed to keep one of these losers around to tell me I am pretty when I am having a bad day. That's why I call him MY Jeff...he could be YOUR Michael, or Allan, or Peter. I have been talking to him for a month now flaunting all the nice, expensive things I have. He hasnt asked for money yet, but I am sure he will eventually. I think he said he is 53...from Germany, but lived in the US (Florida) for 25 years, is currently on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, has a 5 y/o son that lives with his nanny in FL, and the icing on the cake is his wife didnt die in a tragic car wreck or from cancer, she died during the birth of their son 5 years ago.

Sad, I know, right and it hits ya in the heart harder than cancer or a car wreck. He knows I am happily married with 3 kids, and even asks me how my hubby is doing. Three days after the first meeting he tried to pull the "Hangouts" crap. I said "no thank you, we can chat on here plus I dont use Hangouts" so he then begged for my cell number. Yup, I refused that, too.

I have called him out numerous times about lying about his identity and he just pretends to get his feelings hurt & I tell him to quit whining. He claims not to have ANY social media accounts because he doesnt need them, he has Hangouts. I told him that is just weird because EVERYBODY now days has a social media account of some sort - even my neighbors cat. I had to tell him to stop calling me hun, honey, sugar, baby, sweetie, etc. I am nobodys "hun", except maybe my husbands, but I'd slap the crap outta him if he called me hun 76 times every day. My "Jeff" was also super curious where I was & what I was doing during the day. These moments were my favorite time to screw with "Jeff" Nigerians are SOOOO serious & literal when they communicate with you. It is actually kinda annoying because they don't appear to have a personality and definitely no sense of humor!

Anywho, that is my "Jeff Hewitt" story. I might be getting on his nerves so he might change his name soon. His profile pic is a middle-aged man with kind of a buzz cut with prominent widow's peak and salt-n-pepper hair, more peppery and a goatee the same color as hair, with a low trimmed beard and is wearing a green polo shirt with a gold chain showing in neck area.

He is not smiling at all, kinda grumpy looking with a raised brow and a pic is of him sitting in what looks like an office cubicle. Funny thing is, you can see lots of pictures of people in the background hanging up on the cubicle walls but not one is of a 5y/o little boy.

Ladies, we can't keep getting mad at these scammers for ripping us off. There are soooo many of them out there because there are soooo many women here willing to play their game. Ya, some of them have some really nice things, like cars, etc. but a lot of them are married men with children to feed in a poverty stricken country and they are only doing what they know works. If women in this country could just wake up & stop sending them so much money, maybe then they will stop. I am willing to tell you I love you and write poems for a couple of weeks if you will send me cash!

OIL RIG INSTAGRAM SCAMMER
by: Anonymous

Adrainw0 is the Instagram name. He says his name is Adrian and has 13 posts and 3k + followers.

Says he found me on "feed page". says Gus wife died years ago from cancer. He says Hume has a 14 yo daughter and says he’s an engineer for the Atlantis Deepwater Ool and Gas Rig.

He was very robotic and scripted in his answers which led me to searching this scam. There needs to be a way to catch these low lifes.

They pretend they are the IRS and now they’re scamming women on social media and dating sites. They are scum who pray on vulnerable Americans to get money. There needs to be more awareness to protect ourselves.

I hope you know he is a scammer and he will never come to see you or pay you back. This man sounds familar just the name has changed. These riggers will never video chat because if they do then we would know the truth on who they are. Hate to say it but once you send money to him he might just keep wanting more but don't give him anymore money please don't.

Just stop and think how many other woman this man has called them his wife and told them he was coming to meet them and pay them back. This is what they are good at is lying and one thing you will never get out of them is I am sorry for doing this to you.

So basically I sent this man money. And every time he was supposed to come see me he was always being drained for something. He was having issues with his passport, then he said he was detailed for fighting a police officer, then they put him in Cancun Mexico because he owed money for immigration duty.

He was always asking for money and like a dummy I sent it to him because his stories were so sad and I cared about him and his well being. But this last time did it for me. He was supposed to finally come home and then he needed $500 to renew his ticket. I sent it. Then he called me and told me they detained him because he was fighting. That was the last straw for me.

I sent this man damn near $3,000 all up for all his crazy situations trying to get him home back to the states. This man never came home. He claims he is stuck in Cancun Mexico right now and that they are talking about 2 years of jail time for beating up a officer or he has to pay $800 to get out. He has until August to get the $800 or he's going to jail. I told him he'll be going to jail because that's not my problem. I cut him off. I'm done with this liar. Also he keeps saying he's hungry and they stopped feeding him. I told him to starve to death cause I got nothing for him. Not my problem.

So done with this man. I feel so stupid but major lesson learned. Thank God that $3000 didn't affect me because I'm still blessed. But lesson learned

My story has continued, so I gave this man the benefit of the doubt. He said he was 42 and was born and raised in Peru but lives in North Dakota due to him being a Mechanical Engineer. He speaks both English and Spanish. But anyways it's a lot to this story and it's too much to write. So let me just get to the point. This man kept telling me how much he loved me and cared for me and when he makes it back home to the states he is going to come and see me. I was excited.

But the only problem was he didn't bring enough money while he was doing his contract in Nigeria. So he asked me if I could help him get home and he promised he would pay me back when he meets me and also he has no family no nothing but just a daughter. His parents are dead. So I felt soooo bad for this man. So I didn't want to help him until he actually video chatted me. He would tell me things like they weren't allowed to video chat because they were working at sea and also he told me that his phone got messed up from dropping it in crude oil. But he would contact me through Hangouts and call me everyday.

So anyways honestly I helped this man out. I WAS STUPID!!!!!!!!! so I sent this man money

Thank you guys for the info. I must stop communicating with this man. Thank you so much. Feel so stupid. He has had way too many situations for me and I still have yet to meet him. I feel bad because I fell for everything he said to me. It was like I fell in love with a man I've never personally met. I met him in February of this year.

We started talking through Black planet. And he would hit me up all the time and tell me how beautiful I am. So we communicated for a very short time on Black planet and he then asked me if I could chat on Hangouts with him. Like a dummy I did. Didn't think nothing of it. All I know is that I was really feeling for this man. I fell so deeply in love with his charm and pictures and how smart he was. He seemed to be so concerned and loving about me and so concerned about my kids. It made my heart melt even more. So as time had went on I just knew in my heart that this man was the one.

I kinda felt like he was too good to be true but I kept telling myself let me give him the benefit of the doubt.

You ask if anyone knows Kelvin. Do you not know they change their names all the time. I know a Kelvin but not the last name you have. You must be Leary if you are on this site. So to ask if someone knows him, Probably no - not with that name. Read the letters and see if they sound familiar and you will have your answer.

I am sorry but when someone says does anyone know so and so its been said so many times on here how they change their name, mine had five different names, but was using 5 other women to scam.

These OIL RIGGERS ARE SCAMMERS.

Please try to understand that. No Real, No Love, just money they want. I read three letters on here and I knew it was the same guy. Its Sad but I have my dignity back from the help of this site whom I thank with all my heart.

Break away before its to late. Mine called me his Beautiful Wife, He wanted to get married, even on the net, on video with a minister. There was no way. They say what they know you want to hear and that is it. If you start getting songs and poems that tells you its Nigerian. Look them up and you will find them on the net as they copy and paste and change the name. I know I have said this so many times. But when I hear Oil Rig I know a scammer.

Take care and get rid of him now for your own Sake

I am a strong Christian but never expected that it will be happening to me. I use my heart not my brain. Never again as I suffer paying all my debts but it is by Gods grace that I survived. It is hard to Love again.

Maxwell Lundberg, age 46 going on 47, 176 cm tall, blue eyes, light brown short hair, birthday Oct. 6, Widower. Daughter age 17 going to Boarding School(University in Chicago) Lives in St. John's Newfoundland, Canada. Phone Number 1-819-201-2877 comes up as from Magog QC when I searched. Very handsome and a trendy dresser. Likes golf, climbing, diving, walks in the rain, lying in bed listening to the rainfall, camping and fishing.

Called me "My beautiful Woman", found me through Instagram and apparently I came up in his feed. Asked me to move to WhatsApp to talk but he never used it. Asked me to marry hin and wed him at alter. OMG He had to go to California for business and was then going to work on a project in Kuwait in the near future. Has been all over the world on work, New Zealand, Qatar, USA, etc. Loves to watch the sunrise and sunset. Has a dog named Hector.

Wouldn't answer many questions," What is the name of your company, what is your address, send me a picture of your drivers license, with a local newspaper, etc. I knew pretty early that it had to be a scam, as things that are too good to be true usually are.

Pay attention out there ladies as these people are predators even though they make you feel young, beautiful and wanted.

If this sounds familiar to you, stay away, don't trust him. Also stay away from Austin Wagner, as a similar story that came through LinkedIn. If you don't recognize the person, don't befriend them.

Find a real person to love.

Keep sharing the scams, as too many of us are getting hurt out there in the world. True love will find you in person.

Hang outs
by: Anonymous

They ask you to go to hang outs because they can get your IP address and follow you and know what you are doing. Believe me I know, he attached himself to my email and was getting my emails too. I would put my cursor on a letter I would send him and noticed my name and his name was on it, so I stopped writing him in hang-outs.

I cannot believe how well they know the internet and what to do. But as I said earlier they are well trained, and I met mine in Facebook also and he said hang-outs and yahoo. I left hangouts after I found out all they can do to your IP address. Please I ask of all be careful in hangouts.

I hope your sister got rid of him and I am sorry she is hurting knowing the truth. It is sad they do this, and the one that was on Dr. Phil who was elder she gave this guy everything. She was so heartbroken but Dr. Phil gave her help and she came back on and looked good.

Watch out for these guys, ladies!!! Rodney says he’s an oil rig engineer off the coast of Nigeria...(how convenient!) Says he is Norwegian and has a house in Norway and Florida. He is definitely a charmer and I fell in love with him but woke up before it was too late.

He asks for the usual money grams, Western Union, wire transfers - money because his daughter needs it, or because he’s in a jam.

I have spoken with 4 other women so far who have been scammed by him and all over the age of 70 except for me as I’m 64.

I always got beautiful songs from iTunes and was called his wife, his Sunshine of his life, How he loved me more then the depth of the ocean or more then the stars in the sky. I thought dang think this is getting a little carried away here. Then sending love poems and I looked them up in search, sure enough they were there and they would just change the name in them.

I am so happy I woke up before I lost to much money but did hurt but I left him. After I found this page and my scammer admitted there is many of them that is scamming women here in the US and yes they are trained to do this. When I seen the picture of kids sitting on the floor with laptops knowing how to do this it did break my heart.

It's also Ghana that is big into this. When I went to Yahoo Boys and saw all the money these men and kids have scammed it made me sick, driving new cars, having nice housing and we are paying for that. I just received a picture from a friend over in Nigeria of a man with a kitchen table full of money because when they get it, it is turned into their money. They have fake id's so when you send it they do not use their real names, not even scamming us. They use the one on the id. so you have no idea what their real name is.

If women would read these letters about the gulf of Mexico how fake they are and these men are no where on a Rig. Wake up and know you're being scammed and they do not LOVE you.

Sorry but its the Truth.

God Bless

You mean to tell us that your 77 year old sister actually left her marriage for a NIGERIAN scammer? You said $90,000 - does that include the $33,000 credit card debt or is that in addition?

Dang, I cannot BELIEVE this and it sickens me to the core that she believes he is coming for her. She will be waiting the rest of her life.

My God, no wonder these scammers are still in business.

I know I should not judge. After all, I communicated with one for a few weeks. But after I realized what he was, that was it. I would not give one dime to a man that was supposed to be a millionaire. How people believe that they cannot access their accounts is beyond me.

They are supposed to be educated and doing this for years and they strand themselves on oil rigs with no way off and no funds and no access to bank accounts or credit cards?

Ladies, PLEASE wake up.

They are SCUM.

Mechanical Oil Rig, Mexico
by: Anonymous

Yes, they read from the same script. It sounds like Robert Green. Sent me utube beautiful songs. When he told me he had to leave to go on an oil rig, my heart sunk. He was the captain. Anyway, when they call you wife, queenie, queen and if you read God fearing, get running. Quoting the bible. How dare he!

I missed the calls and attention but then I think, how stupid for anyone to fall for this crap. This is out of control. Please everyone, send nothing. This other guy told me he sold his house but had the land because of Hurricane Harvey?? Don't they go hand in hand. First thing he sent me was the Affidavit which had eraser marks on it. My phone listed the date June 2012. The property on it is in Virginia. Its quite beautiful.

This has ruined my outlook on men. I don't trust anyone.

Mechanical Engineer on Oil Rig in Gulf of Mexico, Widow, Needs Money for Shipment
by: Anonymous

Met this one through a dating site that is geared towards interracial dating. Contacted me a few months ago. Asked me to go off line after a few weeks (e-mail, then just started texting me recently). Charming and considerate from the start. Upstanding. Called himself a "gentleman". Always concerned if I ate, if I got enough rest, asking about my work. Mechanical Engineer on rig off the Gulf of Mexico. He said he was British.

Almost 60 years old (but always watching hip hop videos or listening hip hop, what 60 year old British man do you know does that?). Widow (of course). No parents (of course). No children (new M.O.), has only one family member and best friend who live in overseas (I am sure these are his mules who would help take the scam further if I bit).

Supposed to get multi millions and retire after this last contract through an overseas company. SOUND FAMILIAR YET? Says he sold his house and everything to get the equipment and staff members to do this gig.

SOUND FAMILIAR?

All was going fine until putting through the "last" order for shipment. Supplier overseas supposedly wants a huge difference in cost before shipment.

SOUND FAMILIAR? SUPPOSEDLY, family member and friend came up with the majority, but needs tens of thousands of dollars from me to get this order this week or the SUPPOSED downpayment he put up for this deal goes all down the drain.

CATCHING ON YET LADIES? So really, this guy and I have never even shared the same air yet and he wants me to send him tens of thousands of dollars?

I think not.

I was always a little suspicious because how can can a man educated in England with a degree in Mechanical Engineering TYPE in broken English? OK to speak it (said he lived in various countries and picked up the broken English (riiight...), but TYPE IT?

I was not born yesterday. Turned from romantic, make you wet in your thighs Brit (let me tell you though, he was sexy as hell in his emails) to me "giving attitude" for not wanting to help him out of this tight spot that he "got himself into".

Called me QUEEN, SUNSHINE... (do they read from the same script?). Sent me songs and recited love song lyrics straight from the internet). I have nothing to give, so I sent him nothing and will not send him anything. I think this is a new persona he is using, so watch for him ladies. Yes, was supposed to meet me in person this summer when his contract was up. I'm sure that would have turned into a financial need too.

I paid money to be on the dating site. What a disappointment. Nothing but scammers and no one had been on their profile in a long time, so you pay to find that there are little to no real dating prospects. This guy paid to be on there too, so don't get fooled by it being a PAID dating site that it equals not attracting the scammers and lowlifes.

NOT TRUE.

There are people who meet online, truly fall in love and do eventually meet from all around the world and many get married.

BUT, unfortunately there are JUST AS MANY SCAMMERS. NEVER, EVER PAY FOR LOVE. I REPEAT, NEVER EVER PAY FOR LOVE.NO MATTER HOW LONG, NO MATTER HOW LEGITIMATE IT SEEMS.

JUST BECAUSE THE PHOTOS COME BACK AS LEGIT AND THINGS HERE AND THERE ARE EXPLAINED AWAY ARE NOT THE SAME AS A PERSON NOT REQUESTING ANYTHING OF YOU EVER.

TRUE LOVE ASKS FOR NOTHING!

Everybody knows my sister is a fool, but her. Yes, she is still thinking he is coming for her, and buying her a 450K home and a red Ferrari. He has 15 mil. in the bank, but no way to access it. She left a beautiful home and a wonderful man. He had to divorce her so he would not be responsible for her credit card debt. It is now a total of 33K. She is 77 years old, and I don't think she will ever recover from this charade. So sad!!

Sounds about the same. Met him thru Tinder. Norwegian national living in New York. Currently working in an off shore rig. Widower. 12yo son living with his mom. Sends me pics of a very nice, decent looking man in his late 40s. Professed his undying love for me after 5 days of chatting. (Red flag) Wouldnt video chat with me because the camera on his phone was broken. (Hahaha)

He wanted to pay all my credit card debts for me. But I needed to provide him with all my CC info. Asked me to take out a cash advance on the card, buy him an IphoneX (omg) and spend the rest shopping for "nice" things for myself. He would take care of the bill once I gave him all the info he needed. When that didnt work, he asked if I could buy his son a $50 amazon card because for some reason he couldnt access his CC.

I didnt provide him with any money whatsoever. But I provid him with something worse. I provided him my name and my pictures. Something that he can use to scam another person with.
Please, ladies be careful who you share your personal info and pictures with. Anyways this is the number he used to call and txt me from +1-518-823-3360. I hope it helps

First off if he is in the Gulf of Mexico their food is all paid for. He does not need money to feed the guys. They ask for ITunes cards to turn into cash. I fell for all this too till my lawyer and myself called the Oil Rigs companies that are out there. They said they know Nigerians and others are using their companies and they are trying to stop it because it is giving them a bad name.

I am sorry you got taken by this scammer but you should back off or get rid of him now. Next it will be his machine has broken down and he needs more money. God Bless and Hope you get rid of him before he steals your money (which is not stealing because you are giving it and breaks your heart) they are good at that.

So these jerks keep asking initially for iTunes for food and stuff?? How can you buy food with iTunes cards? Especially if they are on a rig. When my scammer asked me for one I said well since you love me so much just give me your CC# or go online and buy it and I'll pick it up and send it to you. I would always come up with reasons I couldn't send him monies. It became pretty funny the things he would ask money for though.

Your sister is a fool. Sorry to be so blunt. By chatting with him for one year and sent him $90,000? And I bet she is still hoping he will show up and share all the millions of dollars he has earned.

That money is wasted on a scammer and he is laughing all the way to the new car dealership where he has bought him a nice new car and some new fancy clothes. And maybe some good meals. If he is married, spent some on his wife and kids.

How very very sad that she has GIVEN a disgusting con artist ALL that money.

She believes him because he LIES so well. And she is infatuated with it.

Unless she has more money to give away, next it will be her house she sells and her car and she will be moving in with family and he will laugh his butt off.

So very sad.

Tell her to look up Nigerian scammers photos and she will understand who she is talking to. But it sure ain't the guy in the photo he pretends to be.

Seriously? You cannot possibly have doubts. He is NOT TELLING YOU THE TRUTH

Do yourself a favor and stop chatting with this low life piece of scum for that is what he is and STOP sending IT the Itunes gift cards. They are laughing behind your back.

He does not care one bit about you and your feelings. He wants ONLY your MONEY. And, if you cannot stop talking with him you really need to understand that that is how they get you. And you really have it bad.

If you want to continue sending this POS your hard earned money in the form of ITunes gift cards which is what they ALL ASK FOR, it will get even more fun for you.

Next, he will need a piece of equipment, or he fell and is injured, or one of his workers died. It goes on and on. He is NIGERIAN, probably young, probably married with kids and is USING you.

You are definitely blinded by whatever name he goes by (which we would all like to know) and his stupid poems and words of love and stolen photo of the real good looking man.

WAKE UP. BLOCK HIM. DELETE HIM for if not, you will be BROKE. You will NEVER meet him and NEVER actually see his face.

Marine engineer from Miami
by: Anonymous

Wow, didn't know there are so many "marine engineer" scammers. Scarcily I am now very likely dealing with one as well. I got to know him from Tinder, he quickly suggested me go on Hangouts which I never heard of before. He claimed he is from Miami and a marine engineer who under the contract with UN but also doing his own gold business.

And his life story is exactly as you described: parents died when he was small, wife passed away 5 years old from sickness, an eight-year-old boy in boarding school. He throws every day sweetest words to me, music, poets, and copies from google...and then he suddenly told me a few days ago he would fly to Istanbul for a business trip. we discussed to meet each other in the end he said he would change his flight schedule to fly to me ( I am in Germany) and already booked an emergency flight for the next morning.

Suddenly in the evening, he texted me that he got the email order from his head office, that he has to present on time on Northern sea of Arbadeen (which is supposed to be Aberdeen), and a company flight will be sent next morning to Istanbul to take him directly to Scotland then the helicopter bring him immediately to high sea, he would be assigned there for 3-4 months... according to what he said, he is on the way to Scotland now (LOL).

So far he hasn't come up to money yet...he melted my heart with his lovely romance, but with my suspicion,(because when I asked him to at least show me his flight booking confirmation to visit me he obviously got irritated and told me that my love for him is divided), I wanted google a bit and surprisingly found out, this could be a scam!

Has anyone received an email through match.com website from this woman professing to be a "cousin" of someone named David Martins, Engineer.???? The first one came a few months ago and I didn't play into it then. Then, yesterday a second one under the same premise that her cousin had seen my pix and profile on Match.com while he was visiting her at her house and instantly was infatuated with me and wanted to meet me, etc.

So, she, on his behalf, contacted me and told me about her cousin named David. He eventually contacted me through e-mail and I responded with questions. Today, I get an e-mail from David saying that his cousin forwarded my skeptical response from yesterday to him, and he was responding to me with more information about himself. His name is DAVID MARTINS and he is an engineer who recently started up his own firm and he lives in either Houston, or Missouri City Tx. Has anyone seen this particular scenario before?

Please let me know.

I love your sense of humor. Sounds like the scammer called Robert Green. Was on an oil rig in Alaska. He asked for an iTunes card, broke his phone, kept sending me pictures of him working which was suspicious to me right away, especially the ones covering his face. Pictures mean nothing. He was to be home a couple of weeks ago. When he asked for the air fare, I said call your agent. There is always an agent. He said, Oh, I owe him to, then he called and I screamed into the phone when he asked me to take out a loan.

I told him if you have 20 million then you don't need my money. Of course his funds were frozen. Now he is on hangouts as GOD. We do not communicate anymore. I told him he was a lying jerk and ugly scammer. He did want me to send him my used phones to a Theresia Hirchert in Moorhead, Minnesota. She is on facebook. I sent him nothing. My used phones had my information all over them.

I was stupid once but no more.

Scammers and FB reporting
by: Anonymous

I have reported one of the men I met on a dating site and found his Facebook profile with at least five of them with different USA cities. Tried to report it to Facebook and some of them removed sending me messages about it but left some of them saying they did not find anything wrong. Not sure how they do checking I guess their security job is not still perfect.

Play It Smart!!
by: Anonymous

Ladies, Gents, and the possible scammers among us:

PLAY IT SMART!! Do NOT put your drop information (the place where you deposit your hard earned money) to these scum. That is like hanging out a sign and saying ha ha I gave out your info!!

Be smart. Give all your info to the FBI or FTC.

DO give us the names and identity of these sick selfish blokes so we know what to be aware of.

And for the sake of your own dignity when chatting with a stranger, quietly say this to yourself at the end of each sentence you speak or text: AND HE WANTS MY MONEY.

Example him to you....good morning my beloved wife.
You to him: good morning my dear (and he wants my money)

Any gut instinct kicks in, block, delete, and run.

My scammer just blocked me. Why? Because I would not cover the final cost of getting him off his oil rig which he was supposed to have been off 3 weeks ago. He and his 12 workers and the machines.

I told him to rent a couple of dolphins and a whale; they’d find a way to get him to land so he could get the Cheque from the company. He wouldn’t do that. nd if I hear him cry one more time, which I won’t, let’s just say it’s best this nonsense ended.

Don’t be afraid. Report these scum. They deserve it.

And google Nigeria 419. You will be amazed at what you read.

Blessings to all.

Scammers and Facebook Messenger
by: Anonymous

It looks like Facebook Messenger is now including a brief description of who you are communicating with via Messenger.

I was communicating with a scammer known as Chris Anderson and have not had any contact with him for quite sometime.

I recently noticed that his messenger profile now says this:

"Using Messenger without Facebook. Logged in using a phone number from Nigeria".

Not sure if F/B is doing this now as part of their new method of keeping us all safe or not, but it is definitely something new. It shows a brief description of everyone that is using Messenger.

So, if any of you ladies happen to be chatting with someone on Messenger without being friends on Facebook check it out.

Just more proof of Nigerian Scammers. I never had a doubt but seeing it in black and white is a stark reminder of what he is.

Be very aware of him, Chris Anderson, as he is still out there.

He only got my heart
by: Stars and Moon

Well, I’m here to report his name is now Walter Gerhard, and he claims he’s been in business for 22 years on an oil rig and he has a son Martin who is - yes you guessed in boarding school!

I asked him for a picture of his wife’s obituary who just passed away from cancer! Nope he got mad and started calling me a liar! Lol! Asked him to send copy of his passport, a picture of him and his son together! Nope! He claims he’s from Germany, has lived in Texas and has a home in Maine, Maine!! Yes his family - none are living and died when he was young. He’s an only child!

He will ask you to accept a treasure box with $ and gold as the shipping company is going out of business and he needs you to accept it for him as he has nobody else to do it! They want your name, address, home phone, cell phone, copy of your ID, and an international agent will deliver!

NO I SENT NONE OF MY INFO!

No I’m not accepting anything! So told him I didn’t believe he is who he says he is and asked for proof! We are done! Of course he threw my past relationships up and said no wonder no man could love me and that’s why they cheated on me! Wow! Nope he is rich and going to retire! Maybe not now that he won’t be getting his trivia from the company who’s going bankrupt as he is on an oil rig in the Mediterranean off the coast of Egypt! He’s smooth!

But thanks to this site I knew from day one! I even mentioned scammers to him and he called me trying to prove he was real! Well like all the others the accent didn’t match! He had pictures of a gentleman on the oil rig and sent me 3 or 4! Very charming with words! Yes we met on Words with Friends!

Beware! All he got was my heart and my time! But I figured the longer I kept in it would be one less woman who might not be aware of these creatures! His son will want to correspond with you too as he wants a mom! Probably Walter writing the emails would be my guess! Martin wants to call you mom right away!

Beware, be safe and God bless all !

Oil rig scam
by: Anonymous

This Alfred Buster sounds a lot like my Charles Bothmann. He also when I was communicating with him needed large amount of cash help for equipment failure, getting it across the border paying this and that but somehow miraculous found a friend who could come up with most of the money and needed me to come up with the rest. I pawned my jewelry for him to help him, I was stupid.

So beware of this man, Im sure by now he has had multiple names and is not in the same area he was when we were communicating. He also stated he was a christian too, so I just told him sure you are.

I am no longer on the online dating sites, as cant trust any of them, they are everywhere.

Good luck ladies, may god bless each and every one of you. Block them and run and save your hearts and money.

Same thing, Mechanical Engineer at an Oil Rig. Widowed, wife died in a car accident. Supposedly from New York, now working in Norway. 2 young children, who are at a boarding school in London. Odd English. When I questioned if English was his first language, turns out his father is Romanian.

By day 2, professing his love for me, send him photos, wants me to be the mother of his children. Posted I love you images, hearts, flowers. Good grief! He asked to go from Facebook messenger, to email, to a Google hangout account.

By this morning his Facebook posting is gone, & his messenger conversations are also gone. Glad I checked on Yahoo for this obvious scam!

Petrochemical engineer
by: Anonymous

This individual found me on Meetup.com. Sent me an email outside of the platform yesterday. He says his name is Andy Johnson from Norway.

He live in Houston TX and moving to the east coast in a few months. BUT he's on a new contract assignment in Alaska currently. He's a petrochemical engineer, used to work for Chevron for 17 years. I reverse search the number and couldn't come up with anything except for his company website.

I was still a bit suspicious. The website is nicely put together but it really doesn't go in depth. I have some knowledge of the financing realm for this industry. It just really didn't expound on anything.

I did a whois.net search of the website and it was created last month but he's been in the USA for 5 years as an independent contractor.

So he wanted to chat on the phone right away. I'm a trusting person but I just had this nagging suspicion. But I said alright. We talked on the phone.

This guy is GOOD.

Has a 15 year old son back in Norway, he lives with his mother. Wife died of cancer 5 years ago. He talks to his son everyday. He's 49.

I'm Christian and how about that, so is he!
And he knows the bible inside out. Teaches children's ministry.

The accent... I could not place it. At all.

It was a fun conversation but I was still not 100% convinced of this guy. Too too good to be true. And maybe I'm slightly jaded but I take everyone with a grain of salt.

So I said hey, we should webchat. Oh, he doesn't have that capability. I was surprised. To be away from your child and he doesn't see your face? I couldn't do it and I'm a mother myself.

He seemed okay with it (Red Flag).

He suggested flying to see me to prove he's real. I said it's wayyy cheaper to SkypeSo I went back to his meetup profile and he has a gmail account. Calls himself Andy Johnson. He emailed me from another gmail account but not the same one.

His phone number is not connected to a real name. I even googled my personal contacts and every one EVERY ONE shows the owner (cell phone or landline). Except the one he gave me.

I took it a step further and YouTube Norweigan accents speaking English... doesn't quite sound the same.

After the phone call he immediately sends me a very long email recapping how he lost his wife and he's looking for marriage.

I didn't ask for all that.

Even on the phone call he mostly talked and I listened. The only thing I didn't do was IP search the email. But I think I'm good to know that this man is a fraud.

These people are demons walking around in human skin suits. I wouldn't be surprised if they practice dark arts to perfect their witchcraft.

Took me a day to figure it out. I'm good.

Ladies- Trust your gut!

1) Search the pictures they send
2) Google the phone number
3) Internet search part of the emails they send you- it's most likely carbon copied
4) Google the name and any tidbits they give you
5) If you find out the company they work for, google that site then see when it was created via whois.net
6) Ask him to say something in his native language. Try really hard to pick up the nuances of how he speaks in his native tongue. You can even YouTube how foreigners say American things- they all trip up on some pronunciations because of the language barrier. And they all do it the SAME WAY.

As an example, Americans can't really trill their 'R's if they are speaking Spanish. Latino people trill (roll) their 'R's when speaking English

They move too fast- they are love bombing you- narcissistic trait to con you.

There's billions of people on this planet. They are not the only one. Trust your heart- it's wicked. Trust your gut. If you are Christian- ask for discernment from the Holy Spirit. You'll get it! Then run away.

Don't even accuse them, they will only use it to perfect their craft!

Still healing
by: Wiser Now

Check out Kenneth Duncan on Facebook. He has been reported several times and yet they let him stay because he goes behind or underneath to where he cannot be traced then he starts the romance and all the clever lies and deceiving people.

He starts out small brainwashing with the little sweet little innuendos and then goes to the bigger and then goes into the total huge innuendos into passions love lust romance whatever works.

He asked for his 44 men please my love help my men get water on the oil rigs then after you get some money he praises the woman that she saved the day and saved his men on the oil rig that were thirsty.

Lincoln stock adapter 3 weeks oh honey I had a breakdown then men did not do what they were supposed to and something broke. Honey you know that I've got money coming and I'm rich now so please help me fix this so my contract can go forward, so once again the woman sends 5,000 10,000 $15,000 or maybe $20,000 or more to fix a big problem. Then if she continues with him he will come back again saying I need more repairman to fix the broken machine on the oil rig so she struggles and sends more money so she can get her money back because she wants her money back.

This is her savings and then he takes more of her money and then he calls back and says honey I love you so much I can't wait to marry you and I need a airplane ticket and hotel deals are building up and I need to pay my bills on the oil rig and then he says I need airfare and I need Hotel bills. I need food in Madison while I'm waiting to get my check so she sends it and sends it. She is starting to fade with the diminished hope that maybe something's wrong something's and what is wrong is that it is all lies.

Then maybe she's wised up to get away from him after the loneliness of knowing that she may never see this person and that she is taking the bait from.

The reality is she knows she was scammed by a liar of a oil rig engineer and hopefully she gets some help from her and hopefully she can find and recover her finances and hopefully she can heal and hopefully she can stand on her own two feet again after all of this and show up for her job deposit.

They Target women from 40 to 70 years old for the money. They Don't Care About Us. I even searched and found some of his victims. Something's got to be done to stop oil rig engineer scams and maybe soon something will start being done. I think Facebook and Twitter and all the others should post warning often about the possibility of scam artists on their sites. Thank you and God bless us all this is Wiser Now

Perry Martins-Tromp Kobus
by: Anonymous

When I read about Perry Martins---It sounded like Tromp Kobus or John Robert or Tromp Kobus Jan Or Kobus Jan Tromp. I was scammed by a Nigerian who showed me the photos of a REAL PERSON who had his photos stolen. He lives in the UK and is married and his name is David M. Walker. His photo is used by many scammers. White hair, beautiful smile and blue eyes.

Nice, kind looking man. The last time I heard from Tromp Kobus, I told him about a good friend of mine who was in ICU. Think he copied what I told him. He is using what you tell him to lie to another person. I asked him to send me a live photo or a selfie which upset him before this communication.

Suddenly he sends me a photo of a gray haired, unsmiling man which I tin-eyed and googled. That was a photo used by Ed Remn, 6 years before.--BTW: Tromp wanted no money from me but wanted to send me $500,000 replacement for the funds that were stolen by John Robert. Afte he sent me the last photo of his supposedly selfie, I confronted him because hehad asked me for my bank information.

Told him I would open a new one for him and when that was delayed, he wanted my sons banking information and I once again declined.I told him my suspicions and suddenly he was not calling me his lovely wife. I told him he was from Nigeria and was a scammer who wanted me to either launder money or to open accounts to buy things and have the bills sent to my account where he had not deposited money.

He said "alright then". I was immediately unfriended and he was reported him to FB but he is still on other social networks and on Instagram.

He's very romantic and intimate but still a SCAMMER!

James
by: Anonymous

His name use to be James Anthony, then Eubanks Anthony, Tom Erol. Now I see he has changed it to another. If you would read these letters everyone is writing to try to help each other you will find out he is not on Any Oil Rig in the Gulf. As my Attorney said he called a lot of Rigs and these men cannot call off the Rig and have no time for a Romance on a Rig. Most are married and only have time with their family for very little before bed. They are very tired and after work clean up and eat and maybe get on to say goodnight to their kids and family and then that is it.

Yes I was used by a scammer also from the Gulf and James always changed his name. I asked why he would say because someone is always trying to talk to him. But found out from his mules he was in Nigeria. Finally admitted that to me and said yes he is buying crude oil there to sell and make more money. Yes he has his own business buying and selling crude oil in Nigeria where he is from.

Read all these Stories and let them help you. They sure helped me beside Western Union, Money Gram and my Lawyer. God Bless and please do not fall for their lies and poems and being called Sunshine, their wife, Honey, Baby, they are giving you.

Perry Martins Marine Engineer and has his own construction contracting company
by: Anonymous

I'm getting a weird feeling about a guy calling himself Perry Martins who says he is a Marine Engineer. Very good looking guy with salt and pepper hair, beard and moustache. He sent me a pic from the gym and from his car. A little too many sob stories. Has a friend in Intensive Care and a widow for 5 years with a granddaughter and aunt in England.

He couldn't talk about it in person because he got too choked up. Another weird thing is he said he was born in CA but went to college in Europe in France, England, and Germany and now has a really thick French accent.

Getting a little too personal and too close too quickly. The online dating profile said he was in Houston but when I talked to him on the phone although hard to understand, sounded like Dallas. He said he made a mistake when filling out the profile. His profile disappeared a couple of days after we starting messaging and switched to my Yahoo number.

I don't give out my real phone number. He also said Sunday morning he was getting ready for church and attends St. Luke in Dallas but the one I looked up was in Houston.

I would like to see those pictures. I don’t know how you’re going to get us to see them unless you post your email address here. I’m not sure if that’s allowed. You could also go to scam heaters on Facebook. They would help you as well. Don’t beat yourself up. We’ve all done this which is why we are posting so we can warn others.

I guess we’ll have to go back to the basics which means do not talk to strangers! Take care of yourself and just be aware. If you get any strange phone calls or phone numbers that come in that you don’t recognize let it ring through. Then hit star 67 on your mobile phone and check the number or go to reverse phone look up and answer it. Be very very careful for the time being.

Blessings to you it will be OK.

RICHARD MAXIME MEETUP DALLAS
by: Anonymous

To answer your question he was on the Dallas singles 45-60 Uptown/downtown Dallas.

I came back to look at his Meetup profile a few days after he contacted me. It was deleted. I didn't pay attention to it.

We exchanged a few texts through the Meetup app until he requested to switch to HANGOUTS on google. I am genuinely terrified.

I didn't give him my bank account but I shared pictures of me and my family.

Now that I am thinking more about it he usually asked where I was - at church, home, grocery store?

I wonder if he could track me thru google??
A Couple of times a "share your location" link pupped up and I ignored it. No, Im not that stupid! I asked him if he sent them and he denied it, but was always asking where I was and what was I doing.

I found it innocent to answer but now that I am thinking it is scary!!!

Other interesting Fact. He requested money to upgrade his international roaming service. I asked what kind of phone he has because as far as I know one can do all the upgrades on the phone and they will be billed to you. He said his phone was a NOKIA and his phone service was AT&T.

Thats when I figured how absurd all of this was.
He portrayed himself as a millionaire and is asking me for money to upgrade his phone to call me?

Yes I confess his love words were beyond absurd and cheese but he was very well spoken with clean articulated English. Kinda charming.

On our last conversation when he called to apologize and explain his request of money I focused on the background. I think I heard cars honking! When I asked he said it was sounds of the plant which works 24/7! But it was clearly cars honking!

Any way Im sure Im not gonna be the last but same way all your stories helped me to understand what is going on I hope my story help someone else.

I will be happy to share pictures of him at your request.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!

Now, the last thing.... how do I report this?

Name changes, one of many scammers
by: Anonymous

I was scammed and am sick about it and trying to move on. I am educated if that means anything, but apparently not. I didn't think I was stupid either but what I did would constitute stupidity for sure. Yes ladies, lots of long emails that can be moving if you are in a vulnerable state.

He was on a rig in Gulf of Mexico. Sometimes the signal is good, sometimes bad. My scammer "romanced" me for almost two months before he got in and yep, I sent money. A lot of money. Thank God, no one in my life knows so I can suffer alone, knowing the rest of the world does't have to look at me with shock and despair.

What was I thinking? I wasn't. I was feeling! Now, if I go back and look at things differently, I wish to God I have known about these scams. I knew nothing.

Ladies:

1. He loves you fast.

2. Sends songs, love declarations.

3. Mine was witty on texts and I really believed he was close--but who knows.

4. If he sends you any documents to prove who he is, as mine did--KNOW what fake documents look like.

5. Even if love can occur like pen-pals fell in love back in the day---SEND NOTHING until he is HOME!!

And guess what: HE IS NEVER NEVER COMING HOME TO YOU.

RUN!!!!!!!11

Profile on Linkendin
by: Anonymous

I just read your story. Yes, he is a scammer. I had 6 men try to scam me the past 2 yrs. I check everything, everywhere. The last one had a profile on LinkedIn. I even sent a message to LinkedIn, pretending to be my sister telling him I think he is fake because he wants money. He was texting my phone, he had a fake profile on there too.

On the profile it didn't have a picture. So I asked him to put one on there. That was the picture I found belonged to someone else. He was a famous journalist in Egypt. Within 24 hours his profile was down. I put on it that he was a fake. These men are hard to get rid off. The longer you keep him on the line so to speak will hurt you more. I know you get used to hearing from him, believe me get rid of him. When he asked for your phone, that was the first clue. He is probably some 28 yr. old kid in Nigeria.

One of mine was, and I had him confess to me after I knew he was lying. This one never asked me for money, but 28 yr old??. Make sure you do a search on pictures, all of them. I run them through tineye, then google search. Please for your own sake and sanity get rid of him.

RICHARD MAXIME
by: Anonymous

I think Im being targeted by one of these guys.
Has anyone heard about a man called Richard Maxime? He contacted me out of the blue from one of the Meetup groups in Dallas.

He says he is a contractor working on a project on the North Sea UK on a platform called Andrew Oil Rig.

Just as you described he is very quick to fall in-love with me and promised the world. Daily love poems and songs and exaggerated expressions of affection.

He has shared only a couple of pictures. 53 years old. White male, salt-pepper hair, brown eyes and well dressed. Fairly good looking. One of his pictures is on a helicopter, the other one with a lady who he says is his fashionista friend from Milan and another one holding an expensive bottle of Champagne in his hand.

Widower. First wife died of cancer. Second wife abused his kindness. Bitter divorce. Always talking about God and asking me to pray for him.

He presented himself as someone very wealthy with lots of experience in his field. Well traveled and highly educated. His English is OK.

He writes long emails about his life story. He answers my questions when I ask about his personal things.

He said there are communication restrictions on the platform where he is now and had difficulties calling.

Asked for my phone. I gave it to him. He calls now most every day. His accent is weird to me. Im not sure but it sounds African.

Suddenly he said he has a problems with international roaming and asked me to buy a vanilla card to send him $300.

I refused. I questioned his story and told him I think he is not who he said he is.

He became offended. Called me to clarify and asked me to excuse his mistake. He said he will send me his linkdlin profile to ease my mind.

After reading all your posts, Im almost sure he is not real. I want to see how far he goes and if he asks for money again.

I am worried about the fact he now has my phone number. No my full name yet, but what is your advice?

David Walter Muller is back on Facebook. He has changed his profile picture. He is now an elderly man with grey hair and beard. He is wearing a red shirt and a little chubby. He is playing golf. I tricked him onto messenger with a different profile I had. When he realized who I was he called me all kinds of dirty names and tried to say I was a liar and a scammer.

Don't let him fool you ladies. He is not on an oil rig. He is a scammer. The first one I had ever had!! He didn't get much from me $100.00 for ITunes. But he sure broke my heart. Now I target them and report them and then block them.

Do the same please!

These guys change their names so much how would we know if we talked to him? If he is an Oil Engineer then he is a scammer. Did you read the letters from all the women and see if he matches up with anyone. I have and many have a scammer saying he is from London. Sorry but 99.9% he is a scammer. God Bless

What's an IP Trace by: Anonymous May 31

Woman forget that person and don't talk to him anymore. Block him he is a scammer. We connected in Hangout and there with me he used the account Smith Rex Alex, alexsmithrex@gmail.com.

He starts slowly involving your feelings and in a blink in my case after 2 1/2 weeks then suddenly demanded I help him with $500.

IP Trace
by: Anonymous

No one will tell you how to IP Trace anyone. You can look it up on the net. If you called him and it was under Teresa that has to tell you right 'he is a scammer.

First letter I read on here I knew my man was a scammer after two years of talking to him. When I found out they cannot call from a Rig and BP and Shell told me that, I questioned him about it. He got very angry that I had called. It's very sad to me that ones reading these letters just do not get it.

Scammer's, Low-lives, useless men living off women, Laughing at us for being used and again as mine said they do it because they can, and he called America women dumb and in need to nice words and attention.

God Bless! Be Safe, Do not lose your money to these scammers or you heart.

IP Trace
by: Anonymous

To the woman asking about an IP Trace, I have never done it but you can Google it for instructions.

I Just wanted to say that if he says oil rig he is fake. Eventually he will ask for an ITunes gift card, money, or for you to be his beneficiary.

He is just building confidence.

Does He have a foreign accent? Tell us the name he is using.

The one I had was also from Houston with a German accent (lol) and was on a rig. He was using the name Chris Anderson.

Trust me it is all a lie. Block him before you get in too deep. They try to get in your head .

I got out without giving him a dime.

What's an IP Trace
by: Anonymous

I read it in the very first of this page where somebody has put an IP trace on her engineer on the offshore drilling and he's from Houston. He says he is in Texas and he's called me 3 times and he's text me and ask me for nothing. I just want to know if he's a real or not. I called his phone and it went to voicemail and it said Teresa Smith or white or something so I knew it was a Google phone with a fake phone number.

I just need to know what IP Trace is and how to get one

Names of Scammers
by: Anonymous

I have been scammed so many times, I don't trust anyone. No, I quit sending money after I took out a loan, I must have been out of my mind. I gave him my retirement before. This was the first time and I had never heard of scammer before.

He went by Anthony Morgan, Morgan
Daniels39@gmail.com, he is on Pigbusters.
morganbobbd@gmail.com. He was on Millionaire.com and tagged and facebook. Christopher Jacobs was on linkedin and was showing me pictures of a Man in Egypt with his family. I post all pictures on the net and lo and behold I find them. I was talking to one named Alen Hunter with Baby Alex. This man is indeed a famous television host with baby Mirko. I even video chatted with him and saw the baby. I am so confused. He asked for money. I said NO, never. I learned my lesson and I'm still paying for it.

ROBERT GREEN, ON pof, and Kenneth Hunsaker. Right away he sent me a copy of an affidavid, which I knew was false, and I saw it was copied from 2012. He is on facebook also.

Another Oil Rigger went by Bobbie Serdar, found him all over the web under various names. He was in Texas and wanted money. Blonde man holding a can of beer. Yeah, right.

I Talked to a FRSC in Nigeria and he said that is untrue that they are arresting kids that are not scamming. They are from 12 years old so go on Yahoo Boys and see for yourself. That is who they are arresting. Believe me. What Man cannot see God can see the Truth. Karma will come back and bite them.

Blake: Sorry he is a scammer and I have been talking to him also. I told him he is a low-life for what he is doing to other women, he just laughed. Please show your mother this. He is a scammer, he is using her. I am sorry she is going through this and he will keep on unless you can block him and delete him off her phone. No matter what you have to do get him off everything she has him on. He will destroy her and her Health. God Bless

It sounds like your Mom does not believe you, or anyone else.

If she reads all our comments/posts, looks up Scammers on the internet and finds all the same stories, and still does not believe it, then you will not convince her otherwise. In fact, she really does not want to believe it. She has fallen for his pack of lies.

Keep all the money out of her hands, including credit/debit cards. They are not afraid to ask her for them either.

Get the title to her car too. There are women that have actually sold their cars and homes for these low life disgusting creatures. Make sure she does not try to sell her house (if she owns it outright).

We all hate to see anyone get taken advantage of but sometimes they have to learn a lesson the hard way. So by you taking her means, that is one way of keeping her safe.

Get her off social media or whatever sites she is on. If not, another one will come along. They pass her information on to other scammers. If she plays Words with Friends, change her user name.

BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK and delete.

Maybe then she will be safe.

You sweet mom has been brainwashed to get her to HELP. She needs someone to take over the money and her keys "they also cast spells by VooDoo". SHE has a mental block so call a family meeting and try to get her to a mental health place.

Seriously that is why they groom her and it is all conditioning her and in her mind she is held captive by these scammers so take her phone and take the computer.

Do research on scammers and show her the many romance scam sites until she is convinced that he is not real and he is fake fake fake. He will destroy her if you do not put a stop to it also have her check how much their dollar is compared to our dollar and show her this site with the many broken hearted women.

Tell her that she is a target as that is what they do and target sweet women with money. It happened to me and I saw the truth and he is gone now.

These scammers have many women they talk to at the same time and show her the real truth before they take all the money and they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Have her call Shell/Exxon/BP/CHEVRON and talk to a leader in the company

Some things are starting to happen in Nigeria
by: Anonymous

An acquaintance of mine in Nigeria was harassed by the local police and was thrown in jail, for several hours, forced to pay the corrupt police to get released from jail. They are targeting young men and women. Sad as some of those they are targeting are not the ones scamming they are the ones trying to just survive. Extracting money from those who have little themselves. That country is very corrupt.

I hate the fact that Trump welcomes the POS that runs NIGERIA to the white House.

Just updating everyone that BLAKE ROBERTS is still deep in scamming my 81 year old mother. I cannot make her see reason or understand that he's a scammer. First he said he was in Nigeria to shore up his parents' estate, and now claims he is in Vietnam. He Writes my mom flowing emails full of promises and wants only money.

I have emergency control of her finances but each day she begs me for more money. 5 thousand, 3 thousand, just a thousand, and I tell her no. This weekend he got her to go to Target and buy a 100 iTunes gift card. Anyone else still currently being scammed by this Blake Roberts or have any supporting information for me to attempt to convince my mom? my email is abbymiller@aol.com

Johnson Rollins
by: Anonymous

I write this on behalf of my mum's experience. So, it started from Tinder dating application my mum chatted with this person name Johnson Rollins, he first introduced himself as an Oil rig Manager from Texas, Houston, United States.
He said that he has a 13 year-old son who is still at boarding school and wife passed away due to cancer. He claimed that he is a wealthy man, own big house with maid and gardener and quite busy person to manage all the offshore projects.

Within a week after constant chatting, he began to say to my mum that he loved her and he wanted to get married and ready to travel overseas to Asia in order to make the real meeting happen and planned to bring my mum to America to live with him.

At first my mum told me about him and I thought he was a real and genuine person who was searching for real love through the Internet but boy, I was feeling suspicious when my mum showed me their conversations that this guy was in the middle of big project and its worth millions of dollars in China and Nigeria but he needs some money to release some stuff that he ordered for the offshore project.

He said that he was in Nigeria and he was detained by local custom there for the goods he bought from China and he was subject to pay 2450$. He begged my mum to lend him money and even if my mum didnt have it then he asked her to borrow the loan from the bank. He said that he will return the money with interest lol..

Ok to make it short, he showed my mum his "fake contract" for the oil rig offshore project and some of his "fake flight ticket" From USA to China and to Nigeria.

He said many wonderful things for my mum and called her love, sweetheart, baby, my wife, lol and he said he didn't have any relatives nor friends to ask for help when he needed for the emergency circumstances.

I told my mum that this guy Johnson Rollins is a scammer and at first she didn't believe me until one day she realised but of course no money at all was sent to this guy luckily.

2 weeks after, he contacted my mum again and said that he was still in a detention centre of the Nigerian customs and asked if he can lend half the money he wanted and its around 1225$.. Oh dear :)

Comment for May 26 - Charles Baldur
by: Missouri Maiden

Your scammer sounds exactly the same guy that almost scammed me. Sent love songs every morning. Started with Van Morrison "Someone Like You", John Legend "Love Me Now." He especially liked John Legend. A widow, two grown children, German accent and called me baby. The name he used then was Larry Doswell and he contacted me through Plenty of Fish. He also had a fake Facebook.

I found the fake/stolen photos on "Scamhaters" facebook page. I really don't know how a man can live with themselves or have any self respect robbing people of their money. I am now recognizing scammers all the time on singles websites. Some scammers are not as well trained as my first encounter. Most have some sort of high level of education, yet cannot put together a coherent sentence with correct grammar and punctuation. I report them and even if they threaten me, I tell them bring it on "baby." Just keep reporting them all. They deserve your rage.

Bitcoin and general advice
by: Anonymous

These scammers will try anything. One guy I’m talking to asked me to set up a Bitcoin account and send him the username and password. He did not call it Bitcoin but something else. Never let your guard down. Never give your real name. Never use a real phone number. Never give your home address.

If you send pictures, be very careful what is in the background. Never use a real email address. I’m playing with 2 different scammers. One is supposedly military and the other is supposedly civilian with the military so not all are on an oil rig. If you are brave enough to play with them beware. They are on every dating site. One hint is that most hate engaging in sexy talk. It’s a sure giveaway if they won’t talk about it or are reluctant to talk about it or aren’t good at talking about it.

Be careful ladies. Be so so careful. I was texting one who never once asked for money in 2 months time. But he was a scammer none the less. I just have no idea what he wanted. Thankfully he didn’t want money but maybe my heart. He only got some hope that he was real. I’ll get past that. Be smart and ever vigilant.

Alfred Busta and others
by: Wiser Now

They play on your romantic side and they brainwash you with imaginations and soft words of love or lust and what ever works they use phony children and they say they are a believer in God to get you to belive them. They lie about their oil rigs or famliy members and they cry and they beg. They are not real and they use anything to get to you all lies.

I talked to a scam hunter and she said they target women from 40 to 70 or so years old and make no excuse you are a target and they want one thing - MONEY.

Mostly they use stolen images of hamesome white men mostly but they are Nigerian males and they are learning how to do this sometimes for years. They work in packs.

They call you terms of indearment to soften you with words like Baby, Honey, Dear, and Sweety. They always have breakdowns and they always want you to pick it up for them. They have mules all over the place to convert the money and resend it.

If they were real do you think Shell /Exxon/Chevron or BP would be asking a woman for help. When is the last time the state government or hospitals texted you for help. My ladies we are targets and they shoot at us so keep your head down and keep your money. Why should a woman have to pick up the pieces for a oil rig.

They have a bond that the money comes out of. An oil rigger engineer makes close to 300k a year. Check it out that Black Nigerian men stealing some white mens pictures and targeting white successful women to get money. That is the bottom line. They do not love you or they only show they can brainwash and soften us.

Ladies this is war. So what can we do? Education first and report them and block them. Call Facebook and tell the police and report them to all the anti scam places. Do not stop as they are not your friend or Lover and they are not real.

I just cannot believe women are getting caught up with these men. Never would I ever give a man money. That is just crazy and if a man asks, he isn’t a man. I tell these men I am not vulnerable or lonely. I tell them I am self sufficient and independent. When they message me in the sites, this is what I tell them.

I also tell them I am wealthy (which I will be in a few weeks) and would never give a man money. They leave me alone. You women should try it. I know they are all over. I should post what this Nigerian said to me playing words with friends. He said these people are ruining it for all the good people there. I told him what do you think we have in common? I said absolutely nothing.

He stopped messaging me.

I met Derrick on tagged. He has a game and says all of the right things that a woman likes to hear. He said he was in the states in Washington, DC then had to go to the Pacific Ocean to do drilling for Morison oil company.

First thing caught my eye was the spelling of Morrison. He sent me pictures of himself, his mom and dad. He wants to marry me. Yeah right. Asked the size of my finger. Told me to look around for a house with a swimming pool. A big house. Now you know I'm not looking for no house. Now all of the sudden the machine out in the Pacific has broken. The company will send another one if he pays 750.00 for shipping and handling. He says I don't know what to do. I said pay for it. It will pay off in the long run. I haven't heard back from this dumb a@@ but the next morning he said you don't say anything to me since I have a problem with the machine.

I said if you're asking for money you might as well run the other way. I got problems of my own. These men are crazy. Yes we're looking for love but you shouldn't have to pay for it. That's dumb.

Words With Friends scam
by: Carol

I was reading an article about fake engineer oil rigs scammers. I was corresponding and talking on WhatsApp to a man who says he is from Oslo, Norway. He was raised in an orphanage in Norway. He moved to the US, when he was 40 and is now 60. He has a thick accent. He is a devout Christian and prays 3 times a day. His name is Phill Shaw. And his daughter's name is Ivy.

We met on Words With Friends. He professed his love quickly. He called me his "Queen". He sang to me, "You Are My Sunshine". He called me nearly every day at odd hours and we talked for an hour each day for 2 months. I hired a private investigator for $366.00 to check him out.

He said Phill Shaw was a fraud. When I read Phill the report from the private investigator, he confessed he is a black, 32 year old from Nigeria, and he makes these calls for a living. There are thousands of these guys.

If these guys are so wealthy then why do they ask you to buy them iTunes. Lets just not be sucked in to these scams. I did not buy in to the buy in asking to give $61,000 to help with the oil rig machine replacement.

Or buy iTunes cards but I did get sucked in to the "romance ". We are worthy of love and we are fabulous women and we are not giving any money to prove that worth so stand strong sisters.

Has anyone heard of an Abramo Nicosia? Claims he has his own company--engineering services and procurement company. States he worked British Petroleum and Haliburton. Of course he's a widow with a 16 yr old daughter.

With all the scammers just thought I'd ask. I trust NO ONE!!!

Thanks in advance

Blake Roberts and Marvel Clinton
by: Anonymous

Marvel Clinton is a scum of the Earth and they made a movie of the Fire of the oil Rig that burned up in 2012 and men died and its sad this man would used this. If there is a fire they are evacuated and None Of These Men Are On A Rig In The Gulf. Call the company you will find out. They hear it all the time and say their employees have no time for such nonsense, they work hard many hours and eat and say goodnight to their family on the net if they can get on, NO PHONE CALLS off a Rig and then they go right to sleep. My cousin works on the Atlantis and he said heck no one has time for except, work, eating, cleaning up, sleep and start their day first thing in the morning again, he has never seen anyone talk about having someone on the net. They would not waste their time doing such a thing because most are married. Not widowed, not divorced, and not looking for someone. Be Careful out there. Your money is going to be gone and your heart broken. Been There! God Bless

Scam Haters United
by: Anonymous

I recently connected and have become dear friends with a precious woman who was hurt by the same scammer that hurt me. Fortunately, this was my first scammer and as I read the posts here I am saddened and angry that these people hurt so many individuals. I wanted to share with everyone a group I located on FB who call themselves "Scam Haters United." You have to message them in order to join and be prepared, because they check you out thoroughly before accepting you into their inline community of fighters against scammers. I urge everyone to check them out on FB and join the fight to stop these evil individuals. We must band together and do something to end this madness. It is actually becoming therapy for me in my journey to recover and pick up the pieces my scammer left behind. I am finding that the sun is shining again, I can hear the birds singing and see that the skies are more blue as I come out of the pain my scammer caused and I allowed. We have a responsibility to the world once our eyes have been opened to a problem and we MUST be a part of the solution! I pray you will pick yourselves up by your bootstraps, determine to move forward and join the fight against the wrongs we are now personally aware of. I am sorry for the pain you have each suffered, truly I am! Let’s take our pain and use it as fuel to make the world a safer place for our friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces.... every woman (every individual) deserves TRUE happiness, not false fantasies. Choose to fight for every woman today, right now! Blessings im abundance to each of you.

Rob Schmit Oil and Gas Services/ C.E.O. of company
by: Anonymous

I've written before about this person. Rob Schmit. He's still out there scamming and asking women for money to complete his mission of repairing an oil pipe line off the coast of Spain. I've conversed with another lady that has encountered his lies, sweet talk, happy ever after story. He's getting his source of ladies from LINKEDIN. I'm asking women that were contacted by his connection with LINKEDIN to please write a letter of complaint to LINKEDIN explaining his scam.

I have done so, reported the email he sends out along with a photo. He should at least be removed from LINKEDIN so he cannot access women from that business source. This is one way to shut him down.

Please do this so others will not be bothered.

Thank you.

Derrick Williams/Mason Brooks ETC.
by: Sarah

It is difficult to say if any of us have been in contact with these two as they change their names to suit the situation.

Words with Friends is a popular place for these freaks to find women. They request as many games as they can possibly get to find that middle aged woman to "chat" with. Then hangouts is their next method of communications for most of then.

How many do you think there are? Because to read the stories, you would think it is only one guy using different identities but the same freaking story.

Short of alerting every woman on the planet, I sure do not know of a way to shut them down.

They are beyond disgusting. However, they would not be successful at what they do because so many are willing to engage them and send them money.

And we all want to find a common thread to see if we were scammed by the same one.

I think that a lot of us have been but very difficult to prove.

Any suggestions?

Oil rig scammer
by: Anonymous

Goes by Mason Brooks and connects with people via Words With Friends. Had a wife who died of cancer, works in the Gulf on an oil rig, wanted to use Hangouts to chat and video call. Very vague about his life but professes love after a few days of chatting.

Denied everything when I called him out but fits the profile to a tee. Photoshopped his face on a pic of a guy on a rig, exact same pic, just his face.

Stay away from him.

Anybody know Derrick Williams as he was my scammer and I talked to him for about a month, then it finally came out before that the conversation was great first but he had asked me for two iTune cards for $50 and I told him no, so we never mentioned that again.

We just had conversations on Hangouts web page and Gmail. He never asked me for another thing after that until the end then he used his daughter supposedly 17 years old in boarding school to tell me that I was his only hope for them to mail his salary to me which was $250,000.

He was supposed to mail it in a box in cash and anybody with a brain would know that that was so wrong on every level so I did a facial recognition on his picture, and believe me the picture was very handsome.

This poor man was used over 50 times right across his picture is got scammer written all over all of the pictures and I had a lot of them myself, so I too had fun. I knew for a long time that he was not who he said he was but I can see how easily it is to fall for what they look like and the things they say but once you know, all of that went away.

Now I am curious to know if anybody else knew Derrick Williams

I am talking to someone now who I friended on Facebook. Everything was good for a while but then the Love Stuff started and I told him I wasn't interested in that as I had just lost my husband 3 months ago but we had a nice conversation for a while and in the end the game came out he wants me to get a hold of his company to see if I can get him time off of work to fly down to Wisconsin to see me, and wants me to take a few personal days off of work.

I know that this is a scam but I just wasn't sure what was the benefits to it for him, from what I can read from the rest of the post it must be the money for the airline ticket where he never shows up.

I will block him now.

He Struck Again!!!
by: Anonymous

Well, I got an invite to be a friend with this man on Facebook. I thought okay I will try this. Well, he said that he was looking for someone and I told him I would help find this person for him. He said that he was on an rig in the middle of the Beaufort Sea. He said first that he was 64 almost 65, widowed (wife died in a car accident in 2014) and had a daughter Lisa, age 16 almost 17, that was schooled in London.

I told him I was old enough to be his mother and he said that age didn't count when it came to love. I thought oh my gosh. What did I start. He said that a friend of his set up his account on Facebook. I looked at his age and it said that he was born in 1987. He said that he was born in Clearwater, Florida and now lived in Jacksonville, Florida. Said that he had a four room condo with a swimming pool

I stopped messaging him on Facebook for awhile and he kept after me. On the next email he said that he was 55. He was a very smooth talker and took a long time answering my questions.
On the Facebook page it states he works for Cairns Energy. I checked all the births in Clearwater and around the surrounding areas and found no birth. I told him this and he has since stopped emailing me. He has also taken off the birthdate. Changed where he went to school.

If you want to see a fake picture of this person, go on Facebook and type in Nelson Anthony in Jacksonville, Florida.

To the woman who posted about the airline ticket, I paid for my scammer to come plenty of times and he never came and one time I paid for a ticket for him to come and he went to see another woman. I think this man just wants money from you and I am sorry but he probably will never show because something will come up. He told you that he will pay you back well and I think a lot of us have heard that before.

Best thing to do is just dump him and move on before you end up losing alot of money that you will never see again.

They ask for money for a plane ticket because they make you want to help them so much and they make you want to meet them so badly. Believe me when you send money for them to get the ticket they will never be able to leave.

Mine came up with the excuse that he got the ticket with the money and then when he went to get the helicopter (which I also had to send money for) they told him he could not leave and put him on house arrest because he was trying to leave and let "his mess" for them to pick up the pieces.

ALL LIES!

They are not ever going to come see you, just keep making up reasons and excuses until they drain your funds!

To question
by: Wiser Now

If he asks you for a flight ticket it must mean you've been communicating for a while and that he trusts that you will send it and when you do send the money I guarantee you he will not show up for you. What they want you to do is wire it to a money mule and the mule will convert it to a different name and then rewired overseas where there will be a person in the UK or Nigeria but I'll guarantee you this man is not on a oil rigger.

He's not an oil rigger and if you are stationed in the UK it's a way to clean out your money through hotels, Airlines, breakdowns, sick family members, emergencies, illness, medications. They think of everything except how to pay you back.

Oil rigger means one thing and that is a big liar as a real rigger will most likely be so busy you don't have time to communicate 4 hours a day. An oil rig engineer always has a bond set up and that their emergency money comes out of a bond and we're talking about a bond of millions of dollars that the oil companies use, not a woman's pension money.

Only God knows the looks at that man that is on the other side of that phone of that phone that you are talking to.

This guy has the ususal scenario: 65, grey hair, very handsome. Pictures on Facebook and LinkedIn are fake. Presents himself as an oil rig engineer who previously worked for "Shells", and is now offshore near Perth Australia. The financial assistant of the company supposedly controls the finances, and work on the site is almost completed, but low and behold, a safety inspection revealed the need for more equipment, and Rodney doesn’t have enough money provisioned!

He will ask for good faith money to send to his friend in Nigeria, who supposedly sends thousands, etc.

Also says he is widowed, and has a daughter Rena who is 17 attending college at Texas Christian University. Had asked for money for her expenses before, and for iPhones.

Says he has a home in Orlando, Florida. Also says he’s Norwegian, and his family died in a car accident there when he was 12 and his uncle raised him in Zaragoza.

Has a very bad temper, and is very slick, very very romantic!

Area code
by: Anonymous

Area Code 234 is Nigeria, and my friend had the same area code. I have been getting many calls from that area code since I blocked my scammer. My yahoo email is filled with many Korean porn sites and young porn sites. I have reported it all. I went back to some of the emails I sent him and they have my email and his email on them so he was getting my emails I received also.

He was good believe me but I have him blocked now so he cannot get them no more. What a jerk. IF you give you cell# to them they can charge stuff on your number and try to get another phone number on your account. He begged and begged for my cell number and I was already told about this so I gave him my home phone number and did he get mad when, I got a phone call about ordering some stuff, I said no it was not me since he could not remember my Birthday and year I was born.

I laughed so hard and told him about it. Wow did he get mad since he thought it was my cell# and said I would regret that. I still laugh about it.

Just be careful, Ladies Please Listen. If they say OIL RIG OR ENGINEER he is a scammer. Please understand this.

My police said if I play along with him I am as guilty as he is and they could not do nothing for me. So I stopped and got involved for me. Take care and be careful they are using you and playing with your feelings and your heart.

Please Wake up before you lose money and your dignity before its to late.

He claims he just likes to be FB friends and he would be moving to the states later in life. Has never been to Florida but would enjoy it.

But, gets upset with me when I ask him too many personal questions, he is too vague. Unless all Germans are like that. He does not like to publish a lot of photos, he wants his life private.

Said he is a widower, 16-year-old daughter.
He just contacted me out of the blue on Messager, just saying he just likes to talk. I am not looking to get intimate, but he says nice things to me but, does not ask for any money, no do I. I told him I don't care about money.

He states the same, (at least for now) but I can't trace his IP address. He has not accepted me on facebook, or Instagram. He states he does not have time for all that because he works. anyone know him?

Well I thought I left a comment here but don’t see it. Anyway he works for BP and his wife and daughter died in an accident his son James is in boarding school in Texas with a man named Donald taking care of him.

I feel so hard for him he needed money to fix a pump on his rig but I didn’t give him any. Then he wanted me to send money from his friends to Nigeria. So I started to investigate and found this site. He has friends on Facebook in the comments that are students from Nigeria. That’s where I met him on Facebook and he has two accounts but the only difference is where he lives and the picture of him.

I called him out on it and he denied it of course. We stopped talking but then I figured let me have some fun with this. I begged for his forgiveness and we started talking again and wouldn’t you know he wanted my information from my Verizon account - everything from password, pin, user name and security questions so he could get his crew phones and lines on it and the company would pay the monthly bill Lol.

I said what do you think I’m that stupid and his phone number is from Queens NY. I basically told him to shove it. Well he got a little mean and blocked me from hangouts and messenger. I did get my satisfaction when I wrote back quickly before I was blocked. These people are evil and have no regard who they hurt. My satisfaction was that the 4 hrs he was talking to me nonstop he wasn’t trying to scam somebody else.

Derrick Wimmer oil rig worker contacted by BP. Two profiles one he lives in Buffalo NY and has a boy James in boarding school in Texas and Donald is his friend who looks after him. Wife and daughter died in accident raised by his Auntie because his parents both died. Mom cancer dad German soldier died in war. I don’t know if he uses the same story for the other profile. His phone traces back to Queens NY no name or address given. 347 815 3177

I was really in love with him and he really broke my heart. I wasn’t looking but he found me on Facebook after crying for two days how stupid of me but my marriage isn’t great so I was down. I really wish he was real. Now I’m over it as best as I can be and that is why I reconnect with him but I got the last laugh!

How many more lies do you have to be told
by: I do not understand women

I keep reading all the stories and I do not know why you keep talking to them. First off no one in the us military will ask for money and they're not scamming anyone, there are rules. Plus how many times do you have to be asked for money before you realize it is fake.

They go after women in the UK, USA and Australia. Read about young nigerian men marrying old white women, people there think it is stupid. One Australian woman was found dead 4 days after meeting her love and all she had left was $5. These guys do not love anyone, just money.

Come on be honest, they looked for you to rob and if you keep talking to them, it is your fault for believeing a lying young man in Nigeria. They have phones from all over USA and +234 is the area code for Nigeria. They have no respect for any woman. Also there is no way of telling how many friends he has on whatsapp.

Come on stop talking to them and if you get hurt, it is because you did not block and delete.

I cannot believe you ladies would keep believing these scumbags. They don't love you. They love your money.

If they had these big contracts, they wouldn't need your money. What a bunch of lies. They use every excuse in the book and you fall for it. My scammer wanted Intune cards, money to get a helicopter to get off the rig, then he got caught by customs because his passport had expired and was bribing the officer to get out if only I would send him money he would come home.! right

Don't you know the oil companies will get them home, and they fix what ever problems arise. And besides all that these oil companies are not going to let the rig stay broken down because they lose money. These scumbags can't talk all day on the rig, because they have to work. Wake up ladies and smell the roses.

How do you think they fall in love with you in a week. They are telling you what you want to hear. Find someone you can see and that is willing to meet you. These guys don't know the meaning of love.

Have a great day. KEEP YOUR MONEY !! YOU WILL NEVER SEE THEM. THEY ALWAYS COME UP WITH EXCUSES AND BESIDES ALL THAT THE PICTURES THEY SEND YOU IS NOT EVEN THEM.

Porn he left

I do believe they have no mercy. If you tell them you already been scammed they do not care about your needs as a woman.

The scammer left his porn on my site and now all these women email me. It even makes me ill to think about it. I have deleted many porn sites.

He came back again and again wanting more until I was broke and had to pay for years the bills he left behind.

He thinks God will take care of him but what about the wrong he did to me. The many lies to take my money saying he was an oil rigger which was not true and he even said he would pay it back just to get more.

He gave me much pain and grief so watch out for:

Can I ask a question. You know these Oil Riggers are Phony and scammers and you been scammed before, so why do you keep going back to them? They are not going to come to you and they really are not in love with you or want you. You must realize that by now.

My scammer said they do this to American Women because we are dumb enough to fall for their words of love and that is all they are Words.

There is a group of scammers and you need to check out scammers united, yahoo boys, and other scam sites and you will probably find your scammer even though it is probably not his picture he is using or his real name.

You need to find someone in real life not a fake one. I did as you did for two years. After losing much money, and my heart he finally told me all. I will not and do not accept no request from a man saying Oil Rig for many I have called said they have no time on Rigs to talk to anyone but their family and that is on the net because they cannot make phone calls off the Rigs.

He sent me on yahoo messenger from a email address I never heard of from Canada. But No I did not. He said he is in Hill Island offshore in Arctic Archipelago. But I do not care to be Honest.

I Just want people to be safe and stop falling for these scumbags.

Oil rig scammer
by: Anonymous

After reading some comments here related and similar to what has happened to me I am convinced he is the same person talked about over and over here. I received a friend message almost 3 weeks ago in fb by the name of Alex Smith, Petroleum Engineer who works for Shell since August 2016 until present and is widowed.

He is from Virginia Beach, Virginia and lives in Tampa, Florida. Phone number he had in fb was 234-902-555-6569. I asked where kids are and he said they are in boarding school. With such an important title I ask do you supervise people and he said yes 5 and only those with him are on the rig.

In general I do not friend any widows because of the so commented scams of widows but something made me accept him. After little hours he messaged me in Messenger and I have to admit we were having a blast. Being divorced for long, with just a few friends and living far from loved ones, his contact with me was making me feel good. Like in most stories here he claimed he was working a private contract in a rig in Ireland and his work there would finish by the end of the month.

Said his wife died 3 yrs ago in a car accident while she was returning from buying things for their sons birthday which was that day and all this time he was not interested in love, but a few days later he started sending poetry and saying that he was feeling something for me and felt that I was the women of his life that I'm his everything and that he is ready to love again and day by day he constructed his plan intensifying what he claimed was feeling.

In messenger he insisted that I give him my number to have me on whatsapp because he is not allowed at the rig to take pictures or calls. For a couple of weeks I resisted. He claimed he had 2 kids a boy age 15 and a girl age 13. I can't remember their names because after a happy medium of not giving my phone number I suggested we can talk in hangout which right away he agreed and connected.

There his account name is alexsmithrex@gmail.com

I can't remember the name of the kids because as soon as we started in hangouts his messenger account was disconnected saying like other times messages sent here may be offensive or a scam. I asked him if his disconnected account and me being so naive I sent him evidence what it said and he said oh no that's not true I disconnected my own account.

I thought this person was truthful. From there he kept saying I do not need to activate a fb account that is for looking for love that he is receiving too many requests and is not interested and because he found his love and doesn't need to through his net anymore because he found the woman of his dreams.

Every day and every moment he would send me romantic poems or a verse and a meaningful message that would eat your heart. Slowly I was falling for him. I got confident and gave him my number and a pic. He kept saying when I finish my contract I will go meet you because I am prepared to go to any part of the world to be with my baby. All this daydreaming kept on until today.

He messaged me all morning that he was confused and needed help and was asking for money help, and by the way this is our 3rd week talking and not complete. That his kids needed to go to an excursion and he forgot to pay for that before he started this contract at the rig. That he had no access to his bank account. I asked what about family, but he only has an older brother and they don't talk after he lost his parents. I asked about your wife's family and he answered she is an orphan, so I said talk to the school but he said they don't care, so if he doesn't the pay kids cannot go.

I said at rig isn't there anyone and he keeps over and over saying baby please you are the only one that can help me, but my response is always no but he was insistent I help me with $500. He said I will pay you back when I'm out of here.

The red flag was flashing bright so I googled his name and I found this site. I wrote back to him and said I am upset I find a place where many women are talking awful of you and most of the stories are the same or quite similar.

You use different accounts and names, why did you spend time making me fall in love to do something so bad. He asked where did you see that and I told him am sorry no. Finally his last words were are you saying all this because I ask you for help so you can keep you money.

From there he disconnected.

Beware of this type of person more when you are alone in life and lonely in spirit.

My recommendation is as soon as someone new asks for money and is insistent and only you can help something is behind that.

I'll never know his name
by: Anonymous

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

This guy not only tries to dupe you, he supposedly has a 15 year old daughter. Wife died a few years back.

Worked as a contractor on an oil rig. Oh really? Last minute problems with the chopper not picking him, his machines, and crew up and flying them back to Texas from the GOM.

Needed over 24000 dollars to hire a chopper. Oh really??

I almost fell for it; glad I didn't.

Valuable lessons learned from this:

Stay off the internet and don't talk to strangers!!

Ladies, start nurturing yourself. The rest will fall into place. And never part with your hard earned money!!

Any questions, drop a line.

Be careful out there.

Blessings to all.

Hi thanks and yes he ignored me for 2 days then came back on in the evening saying hello honey. I asked him had he got off the oil rig and he said no I am depressed. I offered to get Red Cross to help but he just blocked me after telling me to look for a house in the U.K. with a swimming pool.

He was going to come to the states in September 20th when his contract ended then pick me up and go to Ghana where his son is in boarding school as his wife died of heart failure years ago.

He wanted his house and money so he sent William to Ghana to boarding school to his mate Jim to look after him. He never actually asked straight out for money because he knew I had been scammed by an American soldier but said I could lend him it to get to the states and he would pay me back.

I was in touch with an architect from North Carolina James Alex baker who never asked for money and he wanted to marry me and said pick a ring as money is not issue. He was meant to be in Germany and phoned me a few times when he was in Germany. His messages got less and he was online but not replying saying he was busy with work.

He had a daughter Stacy going to uni here in the U.K. He was retiring to England and we could live in a big house. He was white/grey age 51, half Italian half American.

I got suspicious of oil rigs because of a similar profile and both god fearing. Well I caught James on uniform dating site and I sent his photos saying please explain but he said I don’t understand just blocked me the day before major surgery.

I found him last night back on uniform dating for London with 2 different photos. I messaged him and he ignored me. He is going by the name dark almond as a nickname.

Does anyone know him?

I have been emotionally pulled apart by these men in the last 2 months and another soldier Gutierrez American said he was in Nigeria on special operations so please be careful if you are in contact with these as I keep getting scammers every time.

I started feeling depressed and mentally drained.

Hi, I’m sure mine is a scammer too! I met him on Words with friends. We talk through Messenger. He never asked me for money. He’s divorced, parents are deceased, he’s an only child , has 13 yr old son in boarding school! He never wants me to work again, wants to take care of me. In 2 days he had feelings for me, in 5 he was in love! His Son wanted to email me and wants to call me mom, but after 1 emailed I have never heard back from the Son.

Ok here’s my scammers scam, he wants me to accept his treasure as the shipping company is going out of business! The box contains money and gold , and when I get the box he will give me the combination. I’m to pay the international delivery person out of the treasure!!

No I’m not doing it as I’m sure it’s money laundering or something, maybe terrorist funds! He is the best at making me feel loved and already calls me his wife! I’m going to drag him out as long as I can!

He will find a new victim😢

Wish he stops!

Hey. I have a question for everyone. Do scammers use e-mail addresses in some way?

by: Anonymous

To the lady who is in touch with Kyle Adam. Block him and change your phone number. He sounds like John Robert or one of the other people he pretends to be. Please block him before you end up broke as I am. He uses many names and as I read your letter, it sounded like the same line of BS that was sent to me. He loves you so much and can't wait to be with you, but everytime he is supposed to leave, you send him the money and then you hear nothing for a day or two.

The reason, something happened and he needs more money. His son was injured? Mine had a daughter who od'd and then later his mother needed a life saving operation and was to travel by helicopter to Italy. Of course he needed funds for that and her hospital bill. When you can no longer help him he will want you to send him part of your ss or income you get to live on. Then you say you cannot help him he punishes you by not contacting you for days ad then says he was depressed and asks how soon you can help him.

Then he says he is feeling horney or another woman who he sees a few times at work. Then a few weeks later recontacts you and asks when you are sending him the funds. No more, I love you's or kisses or roses. He will even call you and asks you when you are sending the funds a few weeks later. When you ask why because he loves you and wants to come to where his bank is to repay you.

Tell him you thought he was married and he will reply. No. Then ask you if you are going out to send itunes. When you say no, and try to explain, he has hung up.

I sent him a message telling him he is an A-hole. He replied okay. Which is the typical answer. His photos are alway stolen by someone else. He never sends you an action shot or where you can speak to the person whose photo is seen. Once you have been scammed, you are put on a list and will hear from lots of other scammers.

If he has your e-mail address, you will get notifications from female dating sites where he is using your e-mail and part of your name. I too received many photos and all were stolen.

I even had one man pretend to be him and then told me he wasn't the man in the photos. I talk to the jerks that contact me for a brief day or two just to see their schemes but never will I believe any of them again.

It cost me over 1/2 million dollars and over 4 years because he loved ne so much and he was a God fearing man who would never lie. Even swore on the Bible he was coming here. Had me looking for million dollar houses in Atlanta, GA and Pittsburgh with a pool. I am angry at my self because I never knew about scammers until after I'd been in contact with him.

He knew I was a widow and still grieving for my husband. They are trained. I hate myself for believing men would not lie to me because my husband was honest and I trusted him.

The Chris Anderson that tried to scam me was not using the identity of the Basketball Player. He used the identity of a Jay Francis McHugh from Laer Realty in Massachusetts. He used several of this man's photos from the real man's profile. To this day he still uses it under Chris Anderson and has set up more profiles using the real name of Jay McHugh.

I notified Mr. McHugh via Messenger.

And I reported it to Facebook. The Chris Anderson scammer is not on Facebook but is on Hangouts still using Mr. McHugh's photo.

I said has your friend Jim been in contact. He didn’t answer. I offered to get the Red Cross involved to get him home but after about 20 mins or more I said do you love me and he said yes. After weeks saying he loved me and would never hurt me he did, so be warned.

He obviously was a scammer and left me feeling hurt with trust issues worse because it’s happened again. He certainly was smooth talking from the UK and he was meant to be retiring after that last contract .

Still forcing you to send money

First off how in the world can anyone force you to send Money. NO ONE can force you to send them money unless you want too. If it is that bad why not block him. You're the one that is going to get it for money laundering if you do send him money for that most likely 99.9% is not even his name and he is using a phony one.

You need to delete this dude, scum bag, loser before you do get into trouble and stop talking to him. Just trying to keep you safe. I been there I know.

Oil rig engineer Kyle
by: Anonymous

Hi I have been chatting to a bloke for about five weeks. He said he loved me after 1 week and has fallen for me. He is widowed, his wife died of heart failure a few years ago, he has a 11 years old son who is at boarding school in Ghana and his friend Jim looks after him because he is offshore as an independent drilling engineer who retires in September.

He wants to marry me and he is in Sudan on an 11 months contract that ends in September. He cannot use mobile because he is not allowed. H is the boss in charge so cannot FaceTime on WhatsApp online.

Suddenly he said his son had accidentally fallen down the stairs and is critical and he cannot get out of the contract. Because they wont let him if he does he will have to make his own arrangements home but his bank account is dormant because its not been used for months so he cannot get to states.

I said ask his friend but he said they cannot help and the company won’t help because he leaves before the contract is up. He has suddenly not been in touch since yesterday morning but been online on WhatsApp but didn’t reply to me.

I am worried he not real because I got scammed a few months ago by someone saying he was in the military on a special op abroad and he knows this because I told him at the beginning.

He said he was well off and had 2 houses in New York. I have been so bad every time I speak to someone I think they are not real as I had a couple of blokes I think were scammers asking for money. After the first scam I cannot believe every time I met someone online they start telling me they love me after days.

The oil rig worker goes by the name Kyle Adam. He might be genuine. He is 58 in July, half American half Italian and he said he is god fearing in his profile. When I met him on uniform dating USA he had silver and dark hair and a beard and was not a bad looking bloke for his age.

I am just wondering if he is real or not because I notice his messages in the morning are similar and the last 3 was word exact except kisses and heart on the end.

He called me his wife and always honey, babe. I wonder if anyone has had contact with him on here

Thankyou

Scammer stranded in Batman Turkey
by: Anonymous

After about 3 weeks of emails and a few phone calls, he said he was Contracted by a company to drill oil. Said he won the contract and had a choice of going to Afghanistan Iran or turkey. Asked me which country he should go to.

First problem was with the equipment he needed to pay extra duty charges and needed money for that. Next started drilling and there was a gas leak and he had to hurry and drill by Saturday. And then had to ship oil back to a contracted company and didn’t have the shipping cost. Company had to come and get the gas but he did not have enough for him to come back to the state and needed money for a ticket.

I said I don’t have money to give you but I can pray for you. Also says he has rich uncles that are in oil in Los Angeles. He is a widow and wife died of cancer and has a 12-year-old son in Holland raised by his mother.

I told him to ask his uncles for money which ended in an argument.Then a hang up.

Block block.

Name is Gilbert Henry. Requested western union be sent to Mustafa Su in Turkey.

He's on LINKEDIN and has a website.

Western Union or Money Gram
by: Anonymous

I want to say if a person keeps on sending money to a mule or to their scammer all you have to do is call Western Union and Money Gram and give all the names and they will Black list this person and NO ONE can send them money again from the States. I did that to my Scammer.

I got an ID number to report this from Western Union and Money Gram and to report this to my local Police, Government Agency and Believe me they will be getting no more money from no one. Try it to stop other's from getting scammed from your scammer with the name they are using.

Please help others from being scammed. It works as it did for me, and he is black listed as I said and so is his mules. One lady was arrested in South Carolina for being a mule. She was sending the money to Nigeria and she admitted it. To a police officer over there, she said to me and to the Police.

Please be careful and take care, As the Police said if it is an Oil Rig you are being scammed by this person. They have had so many saying Oil Rigs and their ALL lie. They have tracked most to Nigeria.

Rob Schmit Oil Services
by: Anonymous

I received an email from Rob Schmit through LinkedIn. He obtained my business email from my profile. The scenario: looking to meet someone for life long commitment. On his final mission to make millions with a contract/ BP Oil off the coast of Spain.

His story is that he spends months at a time on a rig or ship repairing oil lines. He wants to retire after he makes millions off this deal then buy a luxury house in some exotic place with (me) or anyone that listens to him. Wanted to Skype immediately. I would not.

He sent photos of himself and even his children, saying he is divorced. I told him I am in a relationship but it didn't matter to him!! I said I could be a friend on LinkedIn or business friend only. We talked several times on the phone, always about his retiring after this job and spending time with "me". Ha!

The texts, email were full of darling, sweetie, etc. Then one day I got a text saying he was so stressed with his work and he would lose the contract with BP oil and have to pay huge fines. His messages were full of woe. I expressed concern for his well being. He then said he wanted to speak with me again on the phone.

He told me he had rounded up thousands in a loan from China, was lacking $5,000 to pay everyone off. Couldn't round up the last 5 grand. He then asked me for $3,000 toward his problem to be paid off with 30% interest in two weeks. When I told him I would not do this, he became passive-aggressive and said he'd never bother me again.

He's smooth, charming and endearing. I let the " we'll be together and live happily every after" go in one ear and out the other. I can't believe he sent photos of his family and quite a few of himself. Perhaps I should also alert LinkedIn of his activity. I, too, checked out his LinkedIn page and website. He's based in L.A., probably making all these calls, texts, etc. from there not from the middle of the sea.

He speaks with a German accent and sometimes his messages are in good English, sometimes very broken. At times, I wondered if it was the same person writing the messages because the language and correctness varied.

Is This My SCAMMER Response
by: Anonymous

It made me sick to read how much money you have given this POS scumbag.

Telling him now or telling him later what you know will make no difference to him. Bottom line, he got a lot of money from you and will disappear.

You know by now that you will never meet him and never get your money back.

You need to report him to federal agencies in your state and give them all the information you have. How you sent him the money, etc.

Hopefully they will be able to track him down.

These are some very sad times when we, as women, fall for this.

And so many of us have.

Let us know how it all turns out.

Good luck.

is this my scammer ? part 2
by: Anonymous

Yesterday I wrote about Jeff Hansen, an oil rig engineer working for Shell Oil Company. I tried google reverse image search, and I DID find his photo twice :

1. on Instagram, under dicksondavid359
2. on The Love Suite, named Anthony Jordan.
did anybody hear of him under one of those two names maybe ?

And yes, he also talks a lot about God, and lately he changed his photo on Google Hangouts: a landscape and GODS PLAN written on it.

Deep inside I know he is a scammer, paid about 50K so far, he always promises "this is the last time, soon I will be home honey, and bring all your money back" although we have never met in the 3 months that I know him.

I do not want to confront him with what I suspect him from, I keep going along with his texting all day long "what are you doing now honey?" , or " good morning my love, how is your night" etc etc.

I want to find out when he is going to ask for more money, then I will tell him what I found out about his triple identity.

Thanks for any help in my search, Thanks for any reply, I do appreciate.

Robin my darling future husband if you are the guy who is the same on photo.. As I never even seen. So, because that is the love first gift you gave for me.. So you can pay that fee to Ms Mariama Camara on Western Union ok :). Prove your love for me babe with this action.

Chris Walker H
by: Anonymous

He sent me a msg on IG, also fell in love with me within a few days and wanted to know if I felt the same way. He said he was from Holland but living in NY for the past 10 years. Oil rig engineer making a lot of money. Wished he could send ME money! Lol

Widower with one 9 year old daughter Sheila who is in Holland with the Nanny. Wants to marry me and come and see me as soon as his contract is up. Using fake pictures of Grant Cardone (didn’t realize until after I did more research, but had already blocked him).

This guy was good but got sloppy and that’s when I tried to do a check on him, no info found. A few days ago he asked for money, he said the money he left for his daughter was running out and she was going hungry, no way to access his account from sea blah blah blah. I played along and got him to give me Westen Union info which was to South Africa. Called him out on it and he was hurt that I would think it was a scam. He then provided a US agent info and that was also fraud.

Email he is using Chris555Walker@gmail.com

RobSchmit Oil and Gas Service
by: Anonymous

Anytime you are contacted and told that he (or she) is looking to retire early after making a multi-million dollar deal, avoid them like the plague. This is a set up to get you to "invest." I was contacted through LinkedIn. The guy had a profile but only 39 connections. I went to his website, and it looked legitimate, but when I clicked on links of articles that were supposedly written about his company, the words were in latin like when you are making a website but haven't completed it.

So I googled the topics of the articles. Nothing. When corresponding, he wouldn't answer questions. It was like he had a script and would send emails based on what was next on his script. He wanted to talk via Skype, but even seeing a person doesn't mean their story and background are real.

BE SKEPTICAL.

I have some friends who were duped and one sent thousands of dollars to help with someone who was stuck in a different country and needed money to get back to the US (COMPLETELY FALSE).

ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH NIGERIA IS A SCAM. NEVER SEND MONEY. DON'T TALK TO THESE PEOPLE NO MATTER HOW LONELY YOU ARE.

The recent scammer is Rob Schmit Tel: +1-424-226-6018

Don't respond to him.

Is this my scammer ?
by: Anonymous

A couple of days before Valentine's Day, I got a match on Tinder with Jeff Hansen. I am still not sure which is his surname and which is his first name, he keeps mixing them up. He is a widower, 63, wife died 6 years ago in an accident, and is an engineer working on an oil rig for Shell, between Cyprus and Turkey. I have sent him some money on several occasions : machine breakdown, customs, airfare for geologist, etc etc...
sounds very much like a scammer, but he can be so convincing when he talks about love, being together, etc and you all know what I mean.

His photo: goodlooking, grey short hair bit curly, big smile, well dressed. He lived in Maplewood NJ, born in Rome, Italy.

Has anyone ever heard of him, maybe under another name?
Help?
Godd bless.

Scammers are everywhere even on Instagram. I connected with four men who were all strange as they sent me texts looking for a relationship later on. They steal pictures and it takes about four weeks talking before they ask for financial help. They lie.

I had to block them knowing the pattern of the scam having been in a big one before. Don’t trust it, Smith is very common name, I met one with this name there but different first name.

Good luck but be careful.

Too much BS
by: Anonymous

This guy out of the blue sent me a private message from one of the travel website and clearly explained his intention for the sake of serious relationships and desperate to get married. He used the name Robin Ford, and worked for Chevron as a Petroleum Engineer in Baltimore, Maryland USA.

First message on that travel site, he asked for my private email, so that he could easily be introduced so he obviously avoided sending message on the travelling site.

He said he has a 13 year-old boy schooling in Washington DC and wife passed away due to cancer a few years ago.

After, I gave my email then he wrote me a long email of introduction about himself and wrote he was a religious person, hated unseriousness or cheating because he was genuine, honest etc etc..
Of course, at first I believed what he wrote but on the next email from him when he began to send me some poems, links to songs or love stories instead of answering my questions, then I began to question myself if the person whom I communicated through email is ignorant or I even thought he was just bipolar who had racing thoughts from one topic to other topics, but after awhile then I began to realise that he tried to distract from one topic to another and just tried to avoid my questions. Thats all!!!

He used so many beautiful and amazing love words and somehow it was way too exaggerated and surely can make any vulnerable person easily believe that this person who wrote the email is in love so much even though they never met lol.

I could imagine though that the person whom I TALKED TO IS ACTUALLY A FAT WOMAN SCAMMER FROM AFRICA LOL BUT USING A GOOD LOOKING MANS PHOTO AND CLAIMS HE IS AMERICAN.

I also noticed when he wrote United States, he wrote United State without S. So imagine how it could it be possible that a well educated person from any Bachelor's or Master's degree who said petroleum engineer didnt know even know how to write properly United States.

After a week of poems emails,love words, flattering compliments and called me the queen of his heart, wife, honey etc.. Then he asked my info such as my finger's ring size, my lingerie's size, my favourite perfume, my shoe's size and then I didnt realise his next plan. I wrote him my size information and then the next email he said. "Honey, I had bought some stuffs for you and it was a diamond ring, gold jewellery, perfume, shoes, gucci bag, make up and he said that the items were ready to be sent to my address.

Next email after I had given my address, he said that he also added more items in the luggage that he would send it to me and those were samsung phone galaxy S8, Apple laptop and money $20,000 that he hid inside the battery laptop.

This person was just very convincing at the beginning but it took me almost 2 weeks until I realised that I was being a victim of a scam. So sad and shocking as this is my first time and this person had sent me his fake passport to convince me and tried to ask me to send him the scan of my my passport as well.

Sigh, luckily I didn't otherwise that could be even worse that he could use my scanned passport for crime activties.

Almost 2 weeks had passed then he told me he sent the package through Greengold Logistic cargo and I was not stupid of course as I checked the address of this delivery courier from the email I got but the address I checked was just the house to rent lol.

Busted!!

It means, there is not even a courier office there nor is there a registered delivery courier called Greengold logistic Ltd.

I received email from this fake courier and it informed me the luggage from Robin Ford was on the way but it was seized by Thailand customs at the airport. Somehow, I was not surprised as in previous email it was written that the luggage was on the way but delivered by diplomatic hand carry haha.

So fake.

This courier company asked me to pay the clearance fee of $390 USD or equal to some thousands Thai baht currency lol.. In that email was also attached fake receipts from the Thai customs.

No way would I send my money away to them as this is definitely a syndicate full of scammers in one group or maybe it is done only by a lonewolf.
I was asked to send $390 via Western Union or Money gram in order to release the luggage that was being sent for me. Lol.

Is this my responsibility to pay. Haha as I had never even asked him to send me any goods. It was almost the end of my trust for him. He said that he must travel to a rig offshore and I knew this is the strategy he created.

Be careful women out there, and don't send any money nor informations such as Bank accounts, scans of your passport etc. because they can use it for crime purposes.

Luckily, I didnt send any money at all but just at the beginning I believed what he wrote me in the email as he seemed so genuine but beguiled in the end.

I, too, was contacted on Words with Friends back in August and had NO idea that this man was a scammer. It took three weeks to figure it out. I sent no money but after I deleted him from the game, I kept getting more and more of these scumbags.

Figured out that he was using my user name and showing up with different photos or he had passed it along to his "co-workers". Once I changed my password, it went away. If you have not already done so, change it.

It worked for me and I can play in peace!

Block him on yahoo and I get a letter from another name. I am over him and I too just SMH.

Please everyone be careful. Remember if Oil Rig is mentioned THEY ARE SCAMMERS! We so try to help other's with our stories but I see some just say he loves me and I love him and we are going to live happily ever after. Breaks my heart to read that, For they are the scum of the Earth.

This guy says he’s from Florence, Italy. Has an Italian accent. Early April this nonsense started.

RED FLAG: how about doing some investments together.... oh really? Not even two weeks into "knowing" me? Of course he was a great kisser, so he said. He did not like Facebook so Hangouts was the chat/text of choice. And later on he got thrown off Facebook. Coincidence??

A widower with a 15 year old very pretty little girl, and Dad looked good. In the interim he supposedly is on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico. And now there’s problems that are on the rig; with his machines; funds are being raised to fix it. Yep, I’m being asked for lots of bucks. No I have not and will not give a penny!

Yes I’m skipping a lot but the point is this:
When money comes into the conversation, BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK!!

Ladies if you are that lonely, go volunteer somewhere, go to church, whatever. Your true love is out there. These guys are transparent, fantasies aside, and scum. Never give them your hard earned money. The rate of return is zero.

I shared some info several weeks back and well I was wrong, never met him! Last night I finally put a stop to all this nonsense. I was up all the night before and yesterday doing more research on my scammer and I just had to find the real person he was using, and I did!! Thank God.

He did get the satellite phone from dumb me, then he asked if I could help him with a phone card as he had ran out of minutes, yeah right. So others have my information now and I was also scammed on a online interview last week and this is disgusting.

It's all the same stories they have of wife's have died or divorced, they have one or two teenagers living with grandma, this guy is on LinkedIin Donald Baer but using someone else's identity on match signals web he is using
Itsnevertoolate.

I feel so stupid as this went on for almost 10 weeks. And I contacted the real person and sent him a message on fb and on LinkedIin letting him know really what is he going on. I don't know I just felt that was the ethical thing to do to at least let him know.

I have not received a response back, but would you respond? Please be very careful as all the signs are there exactly as what everyone is saying here is what they do.

My heart is not broken but bent somewhat and hurt.

It says that Alex has 35 million under custody of the bank of Malaysia. The bank has turned the money over to her. So she sent the 2500.00 to get him off the oil rig.

Bruce started a facebook/Messenger contact when I accepted his friend request. Bruce shares that he is: 65 year old widower, 17 year old son in UK boarding school, wife & daughter died of polysystic kidney disease 4 years ago, tired of being lonely, offshore rig drilling contractor in Bay of Biscay for Schlumberger, can't use cell phone &.no access to his accounts due to pirates who will hack into them.

He loves me in the first conversation because I look so kind and nice. I wondered about his broken English and if he was raised in CO he'd have to have heard what "going to the Y" means. He also didn't ever really answer questions.

I was his beautiful, dear ANGEL that God had brought to him.

I guess my asking him if he was a real true gentleman as he claimed and not biting on his attempts to have me claim loneliness and needing my soul mate/true love scared him off because this morning all his messages and his profile are gone.

If your the one that wrote before that you two love each other and are going to be together and then he sends 70,000 to your account, the bank probably had to close it for money laundering. It will no doubt be reported to the Government. If you believe him that's good but he is a scammer.

I knew the entire time he was a scammer and I called him that. Oh he was shocked that I would think that.

The scammer that I believed had me thinking he was funding his oil rig project alone by selling old equipment. He knew I was going through a divorce and was broke. He promised to come save me when he returned. He told me to own an account and he would send me money to help me with the divorce.

In the meantime I had cancer and my child had brain surgery. He deposited and sent over 70k in that account without me knowing. The bank closed the account. I don't know now if I am going to be stuck with taxes in this money or what!

When I realized what was going on I called him out. He declared his love for me and disappeared for a few days. He was attacked by pirates! He keeps telling me he is real and he needs money. I have been in and out of the hospital yet he doesn't even check on me.

Blake Roberts

Anyone talked to a Blake Roberts, claims he owns 2 houses one in Scottsdale, Arizona and one in Michigan. Fell in love with me in 4 days.

How do you fall in love with someone you've never met? Then on the 5th or 6th day wanted me to do him a little favor. lol. Wanted me to loan him $3,000 and he would pay me back on Friday. Well he didn't get any money from me. Now he is sending love poems.

Ladies be careful. Don't send these guys any money, as they are all scammers just different names and pictures. Where do they get all these nice looking guys pictures.?

BEWARE ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE THEM. BESIDES THEY ARE NOT EVEN THE MEN IN THE PICTURES.

I was scammed through a website by Bill Turner in France. He was an igniter working in Batman Turkey. Happily I understood his falling in love was not true and believable for a french woman and I blocked him. But my heart is broken, I feel ashamed and betrayed, and his sweet words sound nevertheless nice.

I found him as a criminal on an american site, and many scams with the same pictures, and he has been sending them for 5 or 6 years.

PLEASE catch him before he will make Other victims

The man's name he is using is Alex Handel, and the picture is with a young kid and he has a white beard and nice smile. Has a shirt on in one of the pictures of My Cat on it and with a black cat. One with a white shirt and blue Tie, Picture by water and one on a boat, one by a fake shark, many pictures.

Says he lives in California, Maryland but from Portland Oregon. Checked his likes which I always do and most are from Nigeria or In Africa elsewhere. LOL

Went to About and its mostly about Lagos Nigeria. How dumb to think he can do this. I check everyone out and see their likes. They pretty much tell you they are lying. Be careful all.

These men are scammers and stalkers, and when I got scammed he wanted me to sell my fusion to get him the money he wanted after already losing money to him. They are Low-Life scum. Wake up.

HE ASKED ME TO SEND HIM THE CASH WRAPPED IN A T-SHIRT TO NIGERIA IN A PACKAGE. IF THERE IS A WAY TO SHIP THEM MONEY, THEY WILL KNOW. IF YOU SEND THEM FUNDS IT WILL NEVER BE TO HIM BUT TO A FRIEND. I'VE BEEN THERE AND HE ROBBBED ME OF MY LIFE SAVINGS.

NOW HE IS CONTACTING ME AND WANTING ME TO SEND HIM 500 DOLLARS FROM MY SS CHECK SO HE CAN LEAVE FOR GA WHERE HE HAS THE FUNDS TO REPAY ME. 6 MONHS OF MORE PROMISES DIDN'T WORK BEFORE, HE THINKS I WILL BREAKDOWN AND HELP HIM SO I WILL GET MY FUNDS BACK.

HE EVEN PAID FOR HIS MOTHER TO BE TRANSPORTED TO A HOSPITAL IN ANOTHER COUNTRY SO SHE COULD GET THE BEST CARE. IT IS ALL A STOY. IF HE HAS PHONE SEX WITH YOU, HE IS READING IT FROM A BOOK OR PAPER.

Yes, you are next. What name does he use? Sounds like Chris Anderson and 25 others. He found me on Words with Friends, and lived in Houston TX. he was from Frankfurt Germany. Messenger calls and texts day and night. Did not sound German either.

Fell in love after a few days. God brought us together. Poems and love professions all day and night.

While on the rig I heard a baby crying in the background one time. He hung up and then called back like nothing had happened. I also heard children laughing and he said he was watching a movie.

He finally stopped all communication when I refused to send him $10,500 to repair his equipment. He was "down and confused" and I was "wicked".

My advice is To just block him and be done before he gets in your head.

But out of curiosity, Let us know the name he is using.

Thanks.

The poetry

Gads, Mark Jose Albert sent me loads of stolen poetry. I sent him my poetry as well, but it was not romantic or directed towards him. Hispanic accent, poor spelling, off script. I knew this was a scammer, and I told him I was not looking for love, or marriage. I am not a desperate 63 year old.

It was intriguing to watch him go over board, so to speak over me. It was so cloying, I told him to bugger off. Called him out as a scammer and he trolled me on words with friends. I am suspicious of a new person playing me, Mushc2. New player, not too good. I am suspicious and will let you all know if he contacts me.

Glad you deleted him from Hangouts. Remember, they keep a file on you and probably have your Words with Friends User Name.

Go into your profile on the game and change your user name.

I was found on Words with Friends too and after I blocked him I started getting several other scammers trying to "friend" me. I could not quite figure out how so many found me randomly. Then I realized he had my user name. Once I changed it I never received another scammer.

The fact that they are requesting a computer search makes it nearly impossible to be found.

It worked for me!

Sites to Find the Real Person
by: Sarah

I found the real Scammer I had on Scam Haters United. It would amaze you as to how many have been identified. Sometimes they even have photos of the actual scammer himself. No surprise, Nigerian!

Check it out and also check out YouTube, Pinterest and "google" Nigerian Scammer Photo Sites.

With a little time and effort, eventually you will find him.

Believe it or not, the scammers are still using the "real" person's photos with different names and even have the nerve of using his real name.

They will go to any lengths to fool women for money.

Maybe one day the word will reach ALL women and it will end.

But as long as there are a few women out there that fall for the BS, it will continue.

Please if you like ask Steve for my email address as I was scammed very badly and lost ten years of my savings and was heart broken. I experienced all of it being the grief, the loss of sadness, the disappointment, the lies, the fake pictures, fake stories, fake identities, everything.

Every time I blocked him he found another number and came back to me again again and again and again. If I blocked him and said goodbye he got another number and sent text to me again. The next step I have to do is just change my phone number then I have to contact everybody to given the new number and then at night time there is fear if the man decides to do something to me personally as it's almost like being stalked but yet I can't find the stalker oil rig engineer scammer.

I've learned a lot this last year and I devote an hour or two hours a day every day reporting and counseling others and trying to help make it better for us women that are under attack from these oil rig scammers. My family come from a construction background. When he calls he always asks me what I'm having for dinner and where I'm all the time. He didn't show his face to me just pictures that were stolen.

I am desperately trying to save back some money so I can have a retirement in my future and buy my own food and be a responsible senior citizen.

My beloved Scammer
by: -$4500

I met him at a rough spot in my life. Words With Friends is where he lurks. He is not handsome. But he said many kind things. He posed as a father looking for love. His beloved wife had passed and his son asked him to try to love again. He quickly fell in love and failed to tell me he had bidded for a job in Africa.

Off he went and soon his accounts were frozen and his equipment must have been junk as he needed money to fix it. At first I helped but then boom he ended in the hospital and needed a large sum of money. He refused to talk about his beloved wife or give too much info on his son.

He demanded to know all my business, but would not share anything personal about himself. Like most he is not raised by his own parents and a wonderful family member raised him. He knows no manners and if you call him out he becomes ugly. He always used someone new to get the funds that were never sent to him. Their ways are not ours I heard time and time again.

When he learned I had a real friend over there he went a little crazy. Be warned they are smooth if it's to good to be true then it's not true

Morning Message
by: Anonymous

I am from the UK and my scammer rolled up about 9 weeks ago and from the beginning I knew this was not real. This one has come from Instagram and my reason for not believing in him was the undying love they proclaim. I mean come on who loves you after 5 minutes of talking, and any way he sends a morning message everyday and does call now and again but wont face time though.

He did send me e-mails telling me about himself plus pictures some of them were nice and some unflattering of all the same man who unfortunately has had his identify stolen by this person (Id like to find this person).

So he goes by the name Roberts Nelson and does still have an Instagram account as I set up another account on Instagram due to the fact he told me he was going to delete it, but lo and behold its still there robertsnelson_99 also has a gmail account robertsnelson99@gmail.

He's not given up on me yet as he still thinks I am stupid enough to send him money. I know its hard as we all want attention now and again but just be careful out there as all is not what it seems.

They are evil.
by: Candace

Hello to all of you who are questioning "if" they are a scammer, you are probably right. Why take a chance? Think of where you were emotionally when you met them. Were you lonely? Were you just looking for someone to talk to and thought it would be "safe" because it was on the internet?

If you figure out the why then you can fix the "why" some other way then trying to fix someone else's problems that you do not know. You will find an almost perfect match in a scammer. They listen to your words and they ask you questions "to get to know you" and tell you how much they love getting to know everything about you. They will even tell you that they love everything about you. Even when they know so little.

It makes you feel good, I know because I lived it. They will take everything that you say and make it be who they are. After you get your heart broken then you can see the "red flags" for what they really are and not let the scammer explain them away. I lost almost $11,000 to my scammer trying to help him to complete his contract and make it home to me where he could be with me and we could have "our happy life together".

Well it never ever, ever, will happen because something will always come up that they need more and more from you. They make you want to be with them so bad that you will start to make decisions that are unlike you, just to have that relationship that will never ever be.

They brain wash you and make you trust them and it is all part of their game which is their life.

Please don't take the chance if you are doubting them, then delete, block, change your numbers and move on. And if they have gotten anything from you, money, jewelry, phones, anything, report it to the FBI and local police. You will not get your money back but we can get awareness out there as to the extent of this crime.

I am trying to heal and it takes what it takes and it is far worse a feeling than how good the feeling was of having someone that you thought was "the one".

How stupid did he think I was?
by: Anonymous

So, aside from his phone falling in the sea as soon as he got on the rig in the Gulf of Mexico, so now he can’t FaceTime or Skype, his voice on the phone sounds like an African accent and he couldn’t get his machines from customs, and says it costs $10,000 but they will accept $5,000, then iTunes cards, then a computer for his 15 yr old daughter at boarding school, then his machine broke, and then, oh no! His daughter is in the hospital in Wisconsin and needs blood and a rare blood, and the blood bank won’t send it unless they are paid $5,000 in CASH!

Romantic poems every day, and he can’t wait to come to me, we will have a wonderful life all together and travel. I was his love of his life, his Baby, sang John Legend songs to me on the phone.

When I called him out and said he sounds exactly like a scammer, he was so hurt that I do not believe him and he loves me anyway and if I would just buy him an IPhone and send it to an agent in Nigeria, the agent will get it to him by boat!

Wow! Really? Any of this sound familiar???

How Long Have You Been Single?
by: Missouri Maiden

Since Feb/March and my costly introduction to this scamming, I have been targeted on all single websites that you can imagine by scammers. Besides the typical I own homes in different cities, I am a widow (and they are only in their 50s), Engineer/Doctor/Attorney etc., I have also determined the number one question they ask in at least by the 2nd message from them "How Long Have You Been Single" or "How Long Have You Been on This Website?"

They want to know if you are desperate or vulnerable. Once I get that golden question, my antenna goes up sharply. My therapy which has worked wonderfully is to report every scammer to the singles website and document what transpired or what fake information/photos are on the profiles.

So if you are still reeling in pain from your scammer, be proactive and fight back because you too will be on the scammers' list going forward.

But for 2 years of my life I was romanced then dropped completely in one day and fb was taken off his phone so now other people are emailing me for him they say.

After this I don't believe no one and he talked about God putting us together.💛 and that God was being for us. He never ask me for friendship like all the other fakes I met on here and didnt tell me right off he loved me as that took about 16 months.

First off Austin Reed then James
by: Anonymous

Do You Really Believe He Is In Jail, It's a scam do you not realize that, so he said he loved you, NOT TRUE! He is scamming you. 45 years in Prison, Give me a break. So Full of BS this guy is.

Do a Check on him and see if he is in Jail down there. Just type in his name. You Might have to pay a few bucks but it would be worth it. No it does not end if you keep playing their game...Sorry my best to you. Delete the Sucker.

James, Yes many love poems, songs sent to me, called me his Sunshine. Wanted us to look up at the sky at the same time at night to know we were looking at the same thing at the same time. He needed a drill for his machine, then a cable, then a bolt that cost 750.00 dollars but always said USD dollars. Kind of funny he would say that when he was suppose to be from here.

Good Luck if I was any of you I would delete him. Take care all

I was thinking about that option, as so much happened when I was in the scam that lasted for 13 months. I lost all I had and later on was being followed by every scammer in the world. Two of them admitted being scammers and I tried to get them to think about how bad it is doing it to women, but of course they are Nigeria men - who else.

I am living in trauma over my scam for over three years and can’t get out of it to live a normal life. Shame on them, I do understand they have a hard life but 98% of men on social sites are not real men. My experience is it does not matter where you meet if it is Facebook, dating sites, Instagram etc as its a Rotten world.

Two More
by: Sarah

Be on the lookout for McHugh Jay (real person is Jay Francis McHugh whose profile has been stolen and used time after time). This profile was set up on Facebook by Baba.Zaka5 and the profile states he is living in Dallas is single and is from New York.

Wonder how he will explain his accent if he chats through messenger. Anyway, that is one.

Another one is also on Facebook under David Walter Muller and guess what??? He is using the profile photo of Mr. Jay Francis McHugh. This one says he is self employed (of course he is) and he is also a Student and lives in Houston TX from Frankfurt Germany. Very interesting to me as my scammer named CHRIS ANDERSON also used the profile photo of Jay Francis McHugh, lived in Houston and was from Frankfurt Germany.

Possibly the same NIGERIAN scammer.

Be aware ladies. I reported both profiles to Facebook and feel free to report them too. Not Jay Francis McHugh as he is the REAL deal. But, check out these other two and remember that face.

He uses it alot.

Any of you that have heard from either one, please post it.

DO NOT GIVE HIM A DIME.

***JENNS/JOHANNES HUGO UPDATE
by: Anonymous

So I was called tonight by Mr. Wonderful (BARF) telling me he was "short" on his procurement of his contract being awarded. That he nearly maxed out his credit cards. After an entire month of not asking for anything, he DEMANDS that I send $3,000 to the endorsement committee so he "doesn't forfeit the contract".

And--had the NERVE to yell at me thinking that is totally acceptable. Told me he will give me all the banking info tomorrow early am so it can be sent and resolved. I caught him in 2 lies tonight--and I'm fairly sure he realized it when I questioned them. So...one last day to deal with this slick scam artist--I want the banking info so I can post it everywhere for all to see.

Would hope it's his own personal account, which I know it isn't...but it's an account none-the-less. And tomorrow--I end it all so he can sadly move on to do this to someone else.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS PERSON.

HE'S A SLICK LIAR....he's charming on the phone--but--I KNEW today it was coming....How right I was..

It is hard to tell if they are the same scammer. They use many names and the stories change a little. My scammer was James with a different name. He was also in the Gulf of Mexico and had trouble with getting parts for his "machine" he called it.

He said there was a fire months ago and he was trying to get parts. Please do not send any money as that is all he wants.

My "James" was very pleasant and nice also. He will take all he can get and make you feel like you must do more.

Please just stop talking to him.

DO NOT buy into anything he says
by: Nora

I had a scammer working in the Gulf of Mexico. A lie of course, romantic, poetic, etc. then he claimed his cell phone broke on the oil rig. He then asked me to send him an iTunes gift card. NOT!

He wanted $500 then quickly dropped to $150. I said I would send him $25 which I did not do, total scam! I plugged in his name on google with info that he was a petroleum engineer.

I got directed to this site! He was full of pressure for two weeks. I emailed him told him he was a scammer, and he disappeared.

Please, what kind of " millionaire" businessman has so many issues with a phone, a contract, zero money to fix one broken machine after another and has zero money so he’s asking a woman he never met in person for iTunes cards or thousands of dollars?

What kind of a man does this? He never talks about "real" things, doesn’t care who you really are, is not interested in YOUR life....only your money.

Has been a widow, kid in boarding school who pays for that if he has NO money? Sends internet poems, sucks you in with a sob story and romance - this needs to be viral.

Daughter and son, wife died from a car wreck then later cancer - my mistake he said.

Very good grammar, very smart and slick, and Godly for me, poems, songs, the whole works untill he got everything I had then he very COLDLY told me to never contact him again.

He is a Heartless Scammer.

We were in this so called relationship 2 years and him coming and like everyone that never happened.

Of course this was my money loaned to him for work problems that he was going to repay as soon as his contract was finished. Supposedly finished the contract and it moved on to other problems.

SMART, Smart, and I think he is the top guy of some of the men I heard in the background which was supposed to be his oil workers.

Another Scammer
by: Anonymous

I have read the comments below and decided to add my own story in hopes to help stop this exploiting "us" older women.

My scammer was on POF dating site. His pictures were of a handsome professional man, gray hair, mostly in suits.

He used the name of David Rodi. He said he lived in Charlotte, NC, was a widow (wife and brother killed in car crash 4 years previously). He has 1 son 25 years old and his mother lives with her sister nearby.

His profile on the site was he was a marine Engineer. In our conversation on the site, he stated he was a contract engineer.

He gave me is phone number 408 area code which is in CA.

He sent me email which I checked the IP number and it was in the states.

He claims to have an Italian father and American mother. He was born in Italy, went to college in Poland and moved to the United States when twenty something.

We sent text messages constantly the first few days. Then I learned he was on an oil rig and he stated he was the "boss" so could keep in constant touch with me. That comment was to my question up front. Do you have time for a relationship?

After 4 or 5 days, he has sent writings (which are copied)...just put a few words of it on google search, to find the source). Then within a week he is declaring his love for me.

I received several phone calls. He has an accent but speaks very good English and his writings have very minor flaws. He is extremely good in convincing you he is legit. DO NOT BELIEVE IT!! as he has been doing this for sometime and knows exactly what to say.

The first attempt for Itune cards came when I mentioned a particular song I liked. He said his card didn't have enough money on it to pay for that song. I said sure be happy to get you one, just send me your credit card number and the particulars. He then claimed he was having trouble with his bank and credit card. (RED FLAG)

The request fell to the background. Neither one of us mentioned it.

After 2 weeks, he is declaring the I love you and I'm saying I care about you, but I'm not in love with you. I hate this virtual dating stuff. He has declared he is coming home to me and would I pick him up at the airport.

Texting one evening, he just disappears and then 3 days later, it's the claim his rig had an explosion and caught on fire destroying some equipment. He claims to have put up $23 Mil dollars to make $33 mil and won't get paid unless the job is finished which would have been in 2 weeks except for this fire. He needs about $24k for parts. Then says he has raised $5K could I help him? I have been sympathetic but did not offer him money.

In turn his text messages have been less and less writings. DAily yes but only "What are you doing" then nothing. Then if texting, there are periods of an hour, or 30 min. of time in between conversations. When I mentioned I had finally closed on the sale of my house and I would see what I could do (to help him) the messages have become more frequently.

On a side note, I asked about his house in Charlotte and I wanted something concrete about him. He gave me an address. I checked the property and it was in a woman's name he claimed was his wife but he had failed to put it in his after she died. I told the owner could not be the same person as the dates were just 2 years old as having purchased the house and she was very much alive.

He insisted it was wrong information. After seeing the inside of the house online, I asked for him to tell me what was the picture in the foyer. I finally said it's a woman in a wedding dress to which he said it's wall art. It's Mona Lisa in a wedding dress. (REALLY?) with all the other family photos on the wall that one is Mona Lisa in a wedding dress. his just proved how slick he tried to be when caught in a lie.

Whoever my scammer is, he is an expert in making you believe what he says is true. With comments, do you think I would waste my time if I did not want a relationship, or why would I lie to you?

I have not sent any money nor do I intend to.
We are at the end of this "relationship", you can tell by the communication and my constant questions. Evidently, I do not fit his usual victim.

I agree with others on here. If he says he is associated as being part of oil rig engineer. Block him immediately.

The best to all.

Just be careful please.

You do not Know really who it is you're talking to no matter what they say or where they say they are. Have one now saying he needs 6,000.00 dollars that his father died two months ago and he has three mansions he gets being the only child and 30 million dollars but needs the 6,000 to be sent to his lawyer.

Hi, so sorry everyone is going through this. Makes me soooo angry.

I got a message on Twitter from a Francis Totti. Seemed nice enough. I'm naturally suspicious, but this guy is a charmer. Would love to believe he is for real. However, after reading this, I just feel hurt and stupid.

He says he's 51, widowed, 2 children, 11 and 13. Originally from Italy, lives in Texas, adopted with parents both gone. Ready....works as an electrical engineer on oil rigs. Amazingly got a contract a couple days after we started talking.

Supposed to be in Germany now and kids at school in Switzerland. Too good to be true I'm sure. His accent didn't match what I expected on the very brief call we had on Hangouts. Also, a few other things didn't match up. He did have great pics. Swears he's so in love with me, lol.

I'm glad I read all this. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I guess I'm more of a romantic than I thought, because I was actually feeling love. Not something I feel often. It still hurts a lot, even though it's not really surprising...sigh.

Big hugs to everyone and hang in there. Huge curse on those jerks who've been and are awful scammers.

The heartache of this
by: Wiser Now

It has been just about a year since my first contact with the scammer. I was a lonely woman trying to figure out what to do with the last quarter of my life when he tweeted me from Twitter. I responded and it went from being nice and friendly to sweet and kind and romantic and then sexy and then love and then after three weeks come the first request for water for the oil rig off the Shetland Islands in the north UK.

Within 2 months the crane broke and he needed $10,000 to repair and then needed $9,000 for technicians to install the parts on the crane and he wanted me to deposit his check in the u.s. Bank of America in the United States so he needed money for airfare and hotels.

I sent over $27,000 from what I thought was love but was the biggest lie I've ever received in all of my life.

After I realized I've been scammed I found pictures on Facebook of another man that the scammer was using on me called Doug Blevins. I contacted Doug but he was immediately suspicious and basically because I was part of the scam blocked me but I needed to communicate with him that I was a victim.

Being a victim there were many feelings going through me at the same time. The first one was shock, anger, disappointment, humiliation, fear, heartache, crying, sadness, loneliness, isolation, fearfulness, and dismay with a certain amount of vengeance. Being a Christian I am supposed to forgive to keep from being bitter.

I am now back to square one. Wiser now yes. Lonely still Yes. Trust is a big problem and since the first initial scammer there's been about 15 others tried to reach me with scams and lies on the internet, Facebook and Twitter.

I never in my life imagined that I would have gone through what took me 10 years to save.

For god sakes never give money to anybody online. I agree with all the other ladies and I think it's very very good to post on this site and the Facebook group and a great big thank you to Steve for tolerating and editing our pages and being kind to us victims of oil rig engineer scams.

Thank you, bye and God bless.

This lady is his agent 386-288-1512. They also use this number 727-916-5030 and these two are Fla numbers but both the man scammer and his agent used these numbers.

Of course he has to have an attorney and his number is 937-709-0444 and this to is an Ohio number close to Cleveland.

This guy is a friend pf his and his number is 720-253-0516. I think this was a Colorado number.


And of course they switch agents sometimes and this one lives in Washington State her number is 509-559-2212.

Would like to know if anyone has talked to anyone on these numbers. Of Course he is a big shot on an oil rig. lol.

PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE THESE MEN AS THEY ARE ALL SCAMMERS USING A NICE LOOKING GUYS PICTURE BUT THEY HAVE NO FAMILY OR FRIENDS TO HELP THEM. CHECK OUT ANYONE AWARDED A CONTRACT HAS TO BE BONDED AND IF YOU CHECK WITH THE OIL COMPANY THEY WORK FOR THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THEM. FUNNY ???

Great initiatives to share out their phone numbers!
by: Jupiter

Hi guys,

I think it is a great initiative to share their numbers out, it'll definitely be a great help and reference to others out there. That's how I see we can help to support each other, and others like us out there.

So, I'm going to share a few details too. Funny how these scammers thinks highly of themselves. I'm just having fun chatting with them, learn their tricks & how they lure us and manipulate us. I might write a book on it someday. LOL.

#1 - JamesWeinston (Jimmy)
Smule ID: jweinston & Jimmy_W
Gmail/ Hangouts: jweinston@gmail.com
Instagram : jamesweinston (you guys can check out his photos here)
Claimed wife died 2 yrs ago. Have son in boarding school in UK (Baton Rouge),and now in Persian Gulf on 10 weeks assignment. Claimed he is some big shot/independence contractor for construction engineering. And have a dog, named Sparky. Also claimed to be living in JacksonVille, FL. Claimed to have a G-Wagon and a truck, but upon checking his photos, it's a Range Rover.

Got a call from Jack's teacher one day from Jax number : +19045415643, reserve search sent me to Orange Park location, exactly in front of Grace Church. Didn't sounds like American, not at all. Confronted him and didn't send any money (Thank God), Lasted for a good 5-6 weeks. S

Also using Gmail : judgejack0@gmail.com (From his "son" Jack)
Claimed Appearance : Aged 52, white Caucasian , 6f, Bald with blue eyes, no facial hair & not wearing glasses. looking very presentable. Good English.

With everything here - it sounds legit, but sadly no.

#2 - Alan Bion Jones (AJ)
From Match.com (Bion_Jones/ now he uses Alan_Jones) i have reported to Match.com recently for fake profile.
Gmail: alan.jones9328@gmail.com
Yahoo:bion_jones@yahoo.com
What's App: +447895645664

Claimed to be from London but of Greek origin. in his own words "I am 5'7 feet, blue eyes, 83kg weight and i am a construction/drilling engineer working with Murphy Oil and currently handling a project here in Sarawak Malaysia. I'm divorced and i have a daughter of 15 who lives with my mom."

Truth be told, he has broken English and I knew he's a scammer from day 1 because Murphy Oil does not have a branch in Kuching, Sarawak but in Bintulu. I look for his photos details, he's using a Canadian guy photos. This one, lasted a week. Just feeding him more ropes to see how far he can go.

So basically ladies, I have a few tips for you.

1- lookout for minor details in their photos. There can be certain landmarks, or names or car brands that can tell you if he's using someone elses identity.

2- They have the same MO - Some independent contractor/engineer for offshore oil rig, wife died/runaway, have a teen son/daughter in boarding school/live with nanny/mom. Currently assigned in some offshore rig, have some financial problems- not receiving cash, etc and need your help (surprisingly not their family & close friends) to send them money.

3- Good with words, always target middle aged women especially widowers or elderly women. Seems polite at first, then gain your trust before asking for your help as if they are going to die soon without the money.

Tips : What you should do

1- Be extra cautious. You can have fun, enjoy their attention to you. But, NEVER, EVER, SEND MONEY.

2- Do not open any sort of joint account. They might use you for their money laundering.

3- Do not trust their video calls - it's recorded calls for about less than 10 seconds. They will claim they are legit, they will claim their lines have problems, or a slow connection. (Offshore Oil rigs are using satellite internet connection and they have access to it, so don't trust if they claim otherwise).

4. They always claim to come meet you, but it never happens - Always ask them to meet you offline. If they are unable to cope and giving you 1,001 excuses. LEAVE.

5. Always do background checks on the first few chat sessions you have. LEAVE if you realise they are not who they say they are. (Check on their social media accounts, look for friend lists, see if anyone commented recently, see if any friends posted and tagged them in any photos like normal friends would. If their accounts looks too stand out but in the "lone ranger mode", no legit friends, no family members, account was only setup recently and lasted for 2-3months. LEAVE & BLOCK THEM IMMEDIATELY.

The option is always yours. Don't let them latch on to you and manipulate your kindness.

I hope these tips helps many women out there.
I'll share again if I found any new info about their MO to help us ladies.

The petroleum engineers email
by: Nora

The supposed petroleum engineer had as his email Markalbert@gmail.com. Said he went to school in Manchester England. Said his wife died in a tragic car accident three years ago. Everything was on script then he sent me a long rambling letter full of mistakes, I assumed he went off script.

He is a Hispanic man and sent me a film clip of another Hispanic man jumping over board in gunner boots, clothing, a divers helmet with oxygen. I thought it odd and asked him about it but got no response. He asked me to buy him a $500.00 Itunes card. No way!

Too much pressure, too much poetry mixed with religion.

Ugh.
He got nothing out of me.

In the messenger window a "nickname" appeared - @babayozaki.jedda. This is nigerian, links to obsure nigerian sites.

Claims to be an oil rig engeneer ("Am engeneering"), horrible english, living in Sacramento, has a house in Floride, widower, 15yo old daughter.

When I confronted him, he dissapeared (closed his account), but made a new request with a new profile, claiming his account got hacked.

Total scam
by: Anonymous

I was playing words with friends, when Mark Jose Albert asked me for a game. Things quickly escalated on his part, claiming he was a petroleum engineer on a rig 190 miles off of Louisianna. Hmmm, isn't that in international waters? Hmmm. Poetry followed, by undying love, then he said his account in Manchester UK was screwed up.

He said then asked for an iTunes card for $500.00 which was a Red flag and then said his phone broke smashing on the deck of the rig. No I did not believe him for a minute on that one.

I called him out on it, so he called me. He had a Hispanic accent and he claimed he was born in Brazil, wife died in a car accident three years ago, leaving him with a 13 year old daughter. It is all B S. He continues to try and contact me, after I told him to leave me be. I do not respond. Best way to get rid of the pest.

He obviously stole someone's identity.

I had the same thing the beginning of this month. Friended me on FB and was chatting with me there. Then he requested to text because messenger wasn't safe and then took down the FB the next day.

At that point I was hmmmm but kept the text going to see what he would do. This week, he told me he was on the rig and needed me to send him an iTunes card or he would lose his job.

I've told him I don't have money, but he keeps persisting every few days. Funny the morning poems have stopped.

Another scammer?
by: Anonymous

I think I just caught another one, and we have been talking for three months, and he fell in love with me, but foolish enough I fell in love with him too. He is in London, says he’s a civil engine, builds houses for a living, and he says he lives in Nevada. I did a reverse phone number, and the number is a California number. He sent me a picture of a beautiful house he was building in London for a client. He has a check from his client he can’t cash because his client is from the states, but says he can’t deposit it either, meanwhile his hotel bill is accumulating, over a thousand dollars right now, and he asked me to get a credit card and get cash from it and send it to him.

My card was compromised a few days ago, and someone from California tried to use it thru Western Union, and another one in Minnesota thru Money Gram. I asked him to video chat me, and he asked me why and I told him I wanted to talk to him face to face because of the compromised card. He’s mad and hurt that I asked, that I don’t trust him. We’ll see.

Scammer's Phone Number.
by: Sarah

I will be happy to provide the area code which is 832. It is a Houston area code and the scammer that contacted me said he was in Houston.

If that matches any of your scammer's area code, please post a comment and I will provide the rest of the number. Or if you all provide the entire number I will very happily let you know if it is the same.

However, they change phone numbers, names and profiles all the time.

The stories are always similar.

They think they are invincible because they are so sure they will not get caught. They just move on to the next mark and eventually someone gives them money.

They laugh at us while they are scamming.

They are disgusting and do not deserve anyone's money, let alone hearts or time.

JENNS or JOHANNES HUGO
by: Anonymous

So I was contacted by this person "Jenns", who goes by the moniker LONELYDAD1960 on Match.com. We exchange small talk here and there, and ultimately I give him my cell #. He does call to surprise me, but I miss the call. We finally make contact and he says he's widowed, (wife died of breast cancer 6 yrs ago) and has 2 kids, a daughter nearly 13, the other a son, who'll be 15 in October.

Claims he's an independent geologist who bids on contracts and lives in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Rotterdam; moved to Texas many years ago, where his mother still resides. In fact, his children have been there with her for nearly a year due to his "heavy busy work schedule".

Within a couple of weeks he says he's "embraced" the idea of falling in love once again, as he's readying for retirement this year and doesn't want to be alone. Numerous calls, text messages, and he's making plans for a trip to Portugal, me moving in, and being his "better half".

Plans were set in motion for his to go visit his kids in Houston, TX this past week, stay for a few days, then fly to come see me. That all changed this past Thursday when the "contract" that he submitted a proposal for was accepted and he was 1 of 2 to be accepted and make a final presentation to secure it.

He calls to tell me , and also to ask my advice as to how to break the news to his daughter, who's birthday he will miss due to him having to "helicopter" out on her day. Supposedly he was flying form Houston to the Gulf of Texas. He arrives, and has been busily preparing for his presentation today (APRIL 16). States once he's done presenting, he must lobby to 5 different people to secure 3 of 5 votes to be awarded to contract. Even if he secures it, he says, it will NOT interefere in our trip plans, me moving in, the kids coming hoe, etc. Since I've had this happen to me recently, that call with the change in plans set my radar off. It also didn't sit right with my daughter and her husband. So we discover later that day the pictures that he used on his profile, the ones that he sent me of his daughter's birthday, were ALL from Scott Humpal's info on google (he's a physical therapist in Corpus Christi, TX).

Yet "JENNS" claims everything I've previously stated is still "going to happen". He has an accent, I've compared it on YouTube to other Dutch men, and it appears to be right on point. He doesn't have the Nigerian accent, he is VERY articulate, doesn't make errors in his grammar as is typically the case with these other scammers.

He has NOT asked for one thing from me. Yet--I KNOW IT'S COMING.

I thought long and hard as to handle this--should I cut it off, block him and never speak to him again? Should I confront him with it? Should I tell him anything? Nope. I decided to "play along" for just a bit until the "contract is awarded". I KNOW that call is coming. So I changed tactics telling him how I KNOW the contact is his; I KNOW I'm going to get that call, that will change my life forever. I tell him he's a shoe in for this, that it's something he's been planning for and working for LONG before he and I met, and that he "knows his stuff".

Every thing I say to him is a hidden message that I KNOW he's a scammer yet he continues to try and convince me I'm his "soulmate". It's easy to text him anything that boasts his ego and his confidence, as I can erase and phrase it differently. Speaking to him, tho, I must be careful so as not to set off his "alarm" and start questioning things I say.

He never really has a "set time" in which he calls, and when I myself call, he does pick up. The calls are never really short in nature, we can talk for an hour or 2, sometimes it's been closer to 3, which in itself, is odd to me. I'm waiting to get that "news", and then the news that something has happened and he needs money or some sort of financial assistance.

And that's when I'm going to send one very special video to him. One of Scott Humpal who was named Father of the Year, with his children with him, and ask "JENNS" the following question "so tell me if you ARE who you say you ARE and who's this"? I know that will be that last I hear from him, he'll block his number and he'll move onto the next woman. Will I be hurt? Honestly I was this past week. More embarrassed than anything else. BUT, thanks to this "person", he's taught me I have ALOT to give to the right person; someone who is legitimately TRUTHFUL, HONEST, and has NOTHING to hide. Thanks to "Jenns", my trust is guarded, I google everyone now; and learned if it sounded "too perfect", it's a total scam.

LADIES BEWARE--REMEMBER THIS MAN'S NAME, remember everything I've told you--because unlike some of the other scammers I've read about--this guy is SLICKER than the OIL he proclaims to secure contracts for.

Updates to follow as they happen.

Oil Rig Worker
by: Anonymous

Please be aware of a man who calls himself David Thomas. I began talking to him last September when he knew my husband was dying of cancer. He befriended both of us. After I became a widow he became very close to me. He slowly gained my confidence telling me his wife died of cancer leaving him with a 17 year old daughter to raise with no other family since they were shunned from the family.

He worked on an oil platform off the Gulf of Mexico and his daughter went to boarding school in the UK. He trusted me so much if I would agree to take his daughter if anything happened to him he would make me the beneficiary of part of his life insurance. Even though I had never personally met him or his daughter.

He made plans to visit me but got sick before the trip took place. He asked for money to be air lifted to a hospital for emergency surgery which I was stupid enough to do. He dies during surgery and I get a text telling me his daughter would be coming to the states to live with me but I would need to send money for a plane ticket.

Stupid again. I did it. They also tried to lure me to Mexico to claim a body of a man I'd never seen. The daughter never showed up. She needed to finish school for a few more weeks and needed money for travel to Mexico.

It would be paid back from the life insurance I would receive. Lucky for me my family intervened and saved me from this elaborate scheme to drain me financially and no telling what else.

BE AWARE! This man is good at what he does. He does it over and over again to victim after victim.

Friend Request on FB
by: Stella

Hello, ladies! This morning I noticed that I had a friend request from a French male working for an oil rig company in Alabama. His profile says he’s single and there is a 10-14 year old girl in his profile picture. I’m happily married, but out of curiosity clicked on the rig company name and it showed a list of "employees"- all handsome middle aged man, most of them European, all of them either divorced or widowed, half of the pictures are with young girls- presumably their daughters.

Upon second glance, 1/3 of all profiles are of the same gentleman, under different names. I googled the name of the company and this site came up.

Thanks for sharing and stay safe!

A Couple of weeks ago I got a friend request from a good looking guy, bald and blue eyes with very nice messages but very religious. Said he caught his wife and best friend in bed and now divorced. Has a 16 yr old daughter. His FB says he is from Sundusky Oh.

Talks about how much he is looking for love and how God is a huge part of his life. Says he was raised in Brazil and has an accent, gave me his phone numbers but its not coming back on reverse search. Says he works on a rig by Long Beach Ca.

After checking his Fb I see all his friends are from Nigeria. I asked to video chat and he says he does not have video, so could I send one.

Oh he says it costs $300 for a permit to mail it. go. He asked me to mail it to his sister in FL. I am not mailing anything. One step ahead of this jerk.

Similar Oil Rig story
by: Anonymous

Met on a dating site. He had no family except Grandma and 14 yr old daughter. He couldn't get money from his bank because his account was frozen. But he needed money for a plane ticket to come see me because he fell in love with me in 3 days! He was retiring. Don't you know he needed tax money to be able to leave 5k. That's when he started asking for money.

Then magically people gave him that money but then the tax people came on the rig and found he owed 15k. He was so convincing until he came up with the 15k amount. He also said he would go to jail if he didn't pay the 15k in full. He was so convincing. He asked to send any moneys (yes added s's on words too) I could.

I could use Western Union! Send it to an agent!

Please run away as fast as you can ladies!!! These people are professionals and will STEAL all your money. I sent a small amount for the plane ticket. After that I knew I was being scammed. Thank God I ended it but it hurt. They make you feel like they really LOVE you. They don't!

Don't fall for their MANY lies. They are EVIL and really good at what they do!

They are scammers
by: Wiser Now

When the oil rig Engineers win a contract what they have to do is put up a bond in reality so that the money for the contract will cover the employees, the parts, the labor, the insurances, and everything can come out of the bond.

They do not win anything as all they're trying to do by saying winning is making you think that they want something. Everything that an engineer needs comes out of a bond the same way a school bond, airport Bond, Highway Bond, bridge bond.

All of a sudden they play on your sympathy and have a child that your maternal instincts would automatically kick in so of course you're going to care and that's what they do from day one.

They please you with words such as you are beautiful, I love you, I will come and be with you, we will meet and marry and be happily married Forever After.

And then they have a mechanical breakdown and they say only you can help them because you are their love - lie lie lie. Its all lies

Please everyone reading this be very careful as there is so much evil out there with these men. Not just with these men but with the drugs, with the booking agents, with internet, and crime money laundering, money trafficking, human trafficking.

It's an evil World we're living in now and is not your grandma's world or your mother's world. It has turned South very bad so please be very careful.

Trust God and trust your gut even if you're hurt and in you're mind you have got to shut the door and walk away.

There's always other sites available or local dating sites or go down to your local Eagles or Elks club or go to your local singles party club or something.

There's always somebody looking for someone. This is wiser now

Ethan Miller
by: Anonymous

Someone earlier on this string asked about an Ethan Miller. "Ethan" pinged me on WWF a couple of weeks ago. Says he's an independent contractor / construction engineer - working on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Widowed - wife died 5 years ago of a brain aneurysm. Has a 15 year old daughter, who by the way, is not in school because he's away on the rig.

Planning to retire when this job is over in 8-9 weeks. Originally from Venice, Italy, but now lives in Mesquite, TX. Houston phone number. Tries to talk so smooth and romantic, but English is broken - more than from being a native Italian.

God brought us together, don't ya know.
Whatever. He didn't ask for money - but I'm sure it was coming, had we continued the conversation.

I don't know why I stayed as all I know is this loser is good and I mean good after all he has you believing he was in a chopper crash but I googled and found out there were no crashes here in the States but there were one in Africa - I think in Jan of this year.

My problem is I guess when someone promises me to pay me back the money I believed him and I guess that is why I kept contact with him. I have contacted Western Union so these so called agents that he used are no longer allowed to use them and he is banned from them as well.

My next step is filing with the DOJ to hopefully to get some of my money back. I know it won't be much but it will be something which is better than nothing. I hope you can get some of your money back that you spent on this person.

Thanks Ladies, I have my own story as well
by: Anonymous

So I am currently talking to a Steve Hendrix and understand that they probably change their names each time. Boy I thought I was smart, but he is a professional and does this for a living and he can fool almost Anyone.

Talking to him for five weeks, as some of you ladies have said, unbelievable with the love poems, a red rose every morning on Whatsapp, photos of him regularly and the rest. I told him I would not do Videochat because I insisted on meeting him first. On about the 10th day he claimed he was in Love with me, and I was The One.

He is a marine engineer, working for Doyon Drilling and is the Head Contractor. A Masters in Oceanography and the rest.

So after four weeks he won a 32 Million contract (working under Doyon Drilling) with BP.

So he has asked for help. Claims he cant contact me on Whatsapp (internet is unstable at the Thunderhorse Oil platform) so he's just hired 80 workers, and could I please just pop out and buy him 400 Euro's worth of ITunes Cards. And for us to keep talking it will cost a least 400 USD a week to ensure he can keep sending photos and videos to me. And he can't survive without talking or messaging me on a daily basis. That his IT guy can jailbreak the Whatsapp app to use features of camera and picture message if I help.

What a crock. He had me fooled for over a month and his English language mastery is unbelievable (and he's brilliant) but he screws up with adding s on the end of everything (paperworks, staffs, etc).

Says he is Norwegian, but sounds very Spanish or Portuguese to me. And even has me conversing on gmail with his 17 year old daughter (no doubt to weed more information out of me, expect he will use my photos illegally).

Will be pulling the plug when I see what his next move is. The jig is up.

My first comment was a list of at least 20 names that have been used by scammers. I was scammed for 50k last year.

Ladies, there is no one to report these scammers to except each other. I was told by a person in government and a former military man that nothing can be done because they are in Nigeria. Be wary of military men. No general is on social media talking to women.

I also talked to an "oil contractor" before he went back on assignment to Nigeria! Surprise!
Come to this site if you're feeling susceptible.

Don't send money. Don't set up bank accounts for them. You can go to prison for laundering money. The GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CARE. Most of them ask for money about 10 days after they make contact. There are some sites on Google that show pictures of scammers. Take a look!

There are so many out there I have given up on lists. Their poor use of English is the first sign. They "love" you in about 3-5 days is another clue.

DONT DO IT!

They tell the same sad story, don't they?

I know this is probably not any of my business, but you indicated that he was supposed to come and see you this past Christmas but was once again in the hospital and sent you the same picture he sent in 2015. So, have you been communicating with him for over two years? Maybe I misread your post. But if that is true, why would you keep in contacting with him?

I think I am surprised that anyone would keep up a "relationship" with a scammer for that long.

These guys are absolutely disgusting. I was contacted in August on Words with Friends. He was a widower (no surprise), with a daughter that lived with his sick mother (who had a broken back of all things) and a Nanny. Originally from Germany and lived in Houston for three years. He was a successful subcontractor to ExxonMobile. He gave me his Houston cell phone number (two numbers to be exact) and his gmail and wanted to switch to Facebook Messenger.

Four weeks into chatting he won a $20,000,000 contract! And off he went. My curiosity kicked in and I started searching for subcontractors in Houston and could not find his number. But what I did find was this site.

Oh he was good with the words and poems and messages and his undying love. God brought us together. Etc. Etc. Etc. You all know the hook.

So I kissed him goodbye.

But I am addicted to this site. I know there are hundreds of them and feel certain that some of you that are on here, or have been on here, possibly had him as I did.

His fake name is not important because he changes it after each victim.

I want for NO woman to get scammed again.

To give them a piece of your mind does no good either because they really do not give a damn about you, your family, your issues, or anything else. All they care about is your MONEY. It may take them a few weeks, or a few months, but eventually they ask.

Don't give them the satisfaction.

If they say oil rig, say goodbye.

To the person who posted about getting a chopper and the man got sick well it sounds like my scammer. I can tell you this is what he does every time and at Christmas time when he was to come to see me if it is the same man he sent me a picture of himself in the hospital and that picture was a fake one because it was the same picture he sent me back in 2015 when he was in the hospital on the rig.

If you expect to get any money back it won't happen I can tell you that just like everyone else can. I hope you kept all recipts and emails and phone numbers because I would go and turn that so called man in.

If you have a picture of him can you post it. Thanks.

Recently widowed, wife died of cancer, son in boarding school, daughter Jean 15 in Manhattan with a Nanny.

Sent pictures of the oil rig he is working on. He is from Manhattan but working on an oil rig in Texas. Called him out for being a scammer, and he sent me a jpeg image of his ID with company name (Seadrill Oil Industry Company) it had his picture on it, which I believe he stole from the internet.

Guess he uses the same type of scamm with all but just changes it up a little.

It sounds like he is setting her up for money laundering. The $2000 was just a hook. She needs to block him and run. It was sent to gain her trust so she will believe everything he tells her.

What he is doing is using her to put the money he gets from scamming other women.

Very common trick they use.

She will NEVER meet him as he is not real. He is some fairly young Nigerian man sitting in a room with many other Nigerian men scamming vulnerable women out of their life savings.

Make her read ALL these posts and she will see the common thread. She really needs to be careful.

Money laundering is against the law.

TELL HER TO KEEP THE MONEY AND BLOCK.

Oh and the roses and candy and stuff animals is part of their hook.

Responding to Mother-in-law
by: Missouri Maiden

The money sent to your mother-in-law was likely obtained from scamming another woman. He is grooming her for his illegal activities. Reason why this scammer wants to set up a joint account is to launder money through that account.

Your mother-in-law would likely be a part of illegal activities and could be prosecuted alone as the scammer would be long gone.

Don't do it!!! Drop this guy.

There is a real good article in Huffington Post on these scammers that is worth reading. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/romance-scams-online-fbi-facebook_us_59414c67e4b0d318548666f9

April 9 Post James

I am sorry if you believe this, my James and I also did the same. I do hope yours is for real. Yes we video on Messenger but I know they cannot do that. He told me he was not real and that's okay that is his problem as he plays with women's money and hearts. No reason to get touchy we have only talked a few times this week. You see I am not interested even though I have seen him and talked to him. Something in the voice bother's me. My Very Best To You.

I believe you said he knows you do not need him to take care of you, so that means he knows you have money. Good Luck. Please let us know how it goes and when he gets to you and wish you much happiness.

No I do not believe in what your saying. Sorry. This site has helped many and I am grateful for all they do. They helped me so much. I would not be on this site if I thought my scammer had been real.

Alex Matthew Harrison
by: Anonymous

Sounds like you've been talking with my John Robert. He had me looking for a million dollar 5 bedroom home with a swimming pool in my city and in Atlanta, GA. Said he was German but when I last talked to him he sounded Nigerian. Said he had no African blood in him.

Told me he was in Nova Scotia but I believe he is in Malaysia. Asked if I had put a payment down on a home with the pool. Said to make sure it was where no blacks lived near by. This is the man who contacted me on FB and then went to Yahoo Messenger.

His first attempt to see me, was a younger white male looked about 24 with glasses. Just for a second and the screen was messed up. Dark hair. Now he is suddenly blond, he says but the hair is grey and he says he is 60.

Neither living in Germany, daughter 16 living in London with his Uncle. Divorced his wife when he caught her with his best friend. We've been in contact for over 4 years. Last week he asked for 50 dollar itune card so he could leave for Atlanra, GA.

He never arrived, never called, never answered my messages. He had already borrowed in excess of 1/2 million dollars. I love him and would have given him a kidney if he needed one but I found out he also caused another woman to file for bankruptcy. He called me his wife and had me looking for a home and a good school so he could bring his daughter to live with us.

I wasn't looking for love when I answered him but was lonely because I had lost my husband and still grieving. I thought he was my friend. I fell for him and nearly lost everything. He wanted me to mortgage and then to sell my home and put the funds in the bank. When I asked him where I would live, he said I could buy a small home till he arrived.

He asked me to wait until he arrived before I visited my sister who was dying from cancer. He was going to buy me a good car so we could go together. She died last July and I bought a used car before then because he never kept his promises.

He will ask for your $$ and retirement funds every month and if you are a fool like I was you will skimp by to send him funds. Avoid him like the plague as he is heartless even though "God meant for us to be together and he would never leave me or abandon me. We were the perfect match as long as I sent him funds.

The I love yous got fewer and fewer unless I sent him money. Hows that for scamming a 77 year old widow? Got most of my IRA, all of my savings and my brokerage account and even had me sell my jewelry.

I fell hard.

Unique Situation / Mother in Law
by: Anonymous

My mother in law has been having an online relationship with a guy working on a refinery but supposedly permenantly lives an hour away. None of us can find anything on him so we are sure he is scamming her. To date she has sent nothing and lets hope it stays that way.

For Valentine’s Day he sent a huge bouquet of flowers, candy and stuffed animals. Had to cost at least $200.00. I have seen a few reports of this and we were a little skeptical. A few weeks back she was complaining about bills. He sent her $2,000.00 straight up to a nearby Western Union.

Has anyone ever heard of that?

She just had cash in hand. The only thing I can think of is leverage to use against her later or to try and get her guard down. He is also asking for her to set up a joint account for him to deposit the money paid for this "job." I want her to open it then change the account just to see what happens.

He says he will be back for her birthday from England in a few weeks so we are bracing ourselves.

Has anyone ever had the money just turned over to them in cash?

POF Alex Matthew Harrison oil rig scammer fake profile
by: Anonymous AU

I’ve been chatting with a guy off POF via Whatsapp for about 3 weeks. His name is Alex Matthew but he said Alex Harrison. He has a UK mobile number as he said on his profile he’s divorced, no kids, 42yo from Sydney, then later said 47yo, wife died in a car accident 4yrs ago, has a 10yo son currently at home with grandma (Alex’s Mum) as he’s currently in London for work.

His own company just signed a $50 million USD deal of oil rig work in Turkey (sent me photos of this contract). He said his father was Swedish (passed 10yrs ago) and his mother Aussie. Said he was born in Australia but grew up in Sweden and returned to Australia in his 20s.

He messages me every morning with a loving and romantic poem and already says he loves me. We said he will come see me in Australia when he comes home to Australia from working overseas. But then he got extended because of this contract and is currently in Turkey.

He told me to look at houses where I live and to look for a 5 bed house with a pool near the beach. We had never spoken on the phone or video. His photos are of a Caucasian man with dark hair and eyes, tall and strong with a tattoos on his left arm. When we tried a couple times to video his video didn’t work as bad internet in London??

This whole I love you, make an offer on a million dollar home freaked me out.

Finally on Sunday just gone we spoke on the phone. This freaked me out as he said he was Swedish but he had a strong accent and it wasn’t Swedish. When I heard it I thought he sounded African. On the phone he said he loved me, wanted to start a life together and wanted me to make a offer on a home for us now. I had tried Google, Facebook and LinkedIn to find this Alex Harrison with no luck. Then finally I put in the name with oil rig and found this site and the stories were so similar to my scenario.

Widowed, oil rig, overseas and big money, one child, and the daily romantic poems and met on POF. He told me he had two homes in Sydney, one in USA and one in Sweden.

Thankful I’ve not been scammed of any money but he gathered personal details like my email and asking my mother’s name.

What is the best authority to raise this scam via? I emailed POF but he’s deleted his profile as he said he was committed to me and for me not to break his trust. Not heard back yet from POF.

To all the single people out there ignoring little warning signs, don’t completely disregard them and thank you to those who wrote these comments because this has made me realise I was about to get scammed and had saved me.

Just met my first Rig Engineer.
by: Anonymous

Amazing. His English writing was excellent and didn't miss a beat. I thought it was odd that his phone number in FA was clear but not identiied so I asked his last name and couldn't find much. There is someone with the name Gregory Phillips in Eustis FA but doubtful it is him.

So this guy has some good pictures, but a few don't look like the same guy. He is very personal in the terms of endearment which bothers me. Offered to fly to meet me. I am in CA. Ordinarily I would dismiss him immediately but his written English was so good I got caught up. So he is not who he said at all.

He is a rig engineer LOL. His phone number when i did reverse directory on it is owned by a CA company which is a school WTEC Aluminum Welding school. In El Cajon CA. He is on Koosk. As soon as we spoke and I could hardly understand him, I knew.

Now seeing this all I can say is beware he is there. His screen name on koosk is valforlove. Careful.

A complete fraud. But a charming one.

They are not real!
by: Kandace

Please if you are talking to someone that you have never met and you are questioning things and seeing "red flags" don't ignore them. Don't let it go on for the sake of not "loosing" what you think is "love".

I kept my "relationship" going after seeing many signs of things that just did not add up. I knew that the oil industry did not run things the way that he said and I still kept hanging on because I loved the feeling that I got when he lied to me. It felt so good to have someone calling me and telling me how much they looked forward to spending time with me, how they could not live without me, how they rested best when being with me.

But after I found out that my "James" was a scammer, well it feels so much worse than the love felt good.

Please stop contact, please report them to the websites and to the authorities. We must get the word out and do what we can to get people aware of this crime. They will drain you and move on so please stop searching for someone to tell you that it is good to continue.

It is bad all bad. I feel so bad now and I wish I would have found this site sooner so that I could have stopped much, much, sooner. Stop now they are not real. Real men do not ask for money, and so much.

Please stop.

Ref Oil Rig Worker
by: Missouri Maiden

Dear Anonymous - the guy you think is genuine is not. No man meets a woman online and asks for money. The scammers’ favorite places to chat after the initial contact is Hangouts, gmail and Instagram. I was almost scammed and it really felt real to me too. But these are professional con-artists. Sounds like you had a pretty convincing one.

But follow your feelings deep down inside that say something is not right with this picture. They are red flags. I completely understand you want it to be the real thing. But they are pros at taking. He will never show up in 8 weeks. Eventually you will be able to tell real from scammer as they all have the same pattern.

I still get contacts daily on all my singles websites from these scammers. The profiles are all the same: widow, professional job, poor grammar, just moved or relocating to your area, profile hair color or eye color is different from photos.

Just stay vigilant and confirm everything.

Ref Oil Rig Worker.
by: Anonymous

When they say USA dollars do you not know they are from Africa? A man from our country or other places would say just the dollar amount. A week and you think he is genuine, a week and he is already asking for money. He is going to break your heart and take every penny you have.

Believe me I know. These Oil Workers are NOT for real, I sure hope you read the stories, go way down and read the letter from a real Oil Worker trying to help everyone saying they have no time for this with women on the net and most have families so do not be fooled by ones saying that they are Oil Rig Workers or Engineers and have a 3-7 million dollar contract for it is not true.

They ruin a real Oil Workers Name and it is sad. They are good at what to say to make you feel good while they are laughing when you answer them and you say you love him. Yes it is sad we fall for such nonsense and as my scammer said American women are easy to use and get money because they are so hard up for hearing the right words from them no matter who they are.

Please wise up before you send him money as he is Not coming to you. I been waiting three years for mine to show up at my door whose name is James. They are low-lifes and have No feelings towards you what-so-ever.

Please take care and meet someone that is Not on the net. God Bless

Yes report it because it is not a game and is very painful for us victims of oil rig engineer scams. They are very crafty just like the devil himself. Yes report them to carriers and every place you sent money through so it will black flag the mules and accounts.

I called Chase Bank in Texas and reported the accounts and I also did it to the Bank of America and Wal Mart and Western Union. It was flagged but they somehow never catch scammers. I have a big WHY NOT. If we did that we would be in jail for years so there has to be a break somewhere or a weakness in them where they will make a mistake soon and get busted I pray.

That is where I went wrong as I was lonely and when the romance started my resistance become non effective and now I'm scrambling to save the money back so some how let us band together and warrior up and be strong and win this thing.

Oh God of Heaven please help us now. In your Name I ask this Amen

Had me convinced
by: Anonymous

Watch out for Nathan Sullivan or Brian Garret or Brian Howard. Nathan Sullivan contacted me on the dating site Elite. Said he was a chemical engineer on a rig off the coast of Seattle Washington.

First he needed money for chemicals to finish his job. Then the chopper that was to pick them up, then he needed money for a deposit to the chopper company. Then the chopper came but he sent his workers home first. So then he needed more money so he could pay the chopper company to come and get him. Then he got really sick and the chopper all of a sudden came to get him to take him to a hospital.

Then the chopper crashed and he was in a coma for a few days. Kept asking for the hospital number and he said it was a private hospital for oil riggers. I got a text form a guy he said was his Dr. and he was asking for money to help Nathan pay his hospital bill.

I contacted one of the people he had sending money to me so I could send it to Nigeria to a Emmanuel Jagba. She also has sent money to a man who needs money for chemicals. WOW.

I confronted "Nathan " about it and he is asking me a lot of questions now. These guys are cruel and sick. Oh also said his wife died of a drug overdose.

Be careful ladies they wont stop.

I’ve been talking to a guy name Peter Rodger and is what he said his name is and he lived in Houston Texas until the hurricane came through last summer and had moved himself and his 11 year old daughter to Washington DC. I’ve paid for a 5 day membership trial with a website called Been Verified to see if his name and his email comes up that he gave me but there is No trace whatsoever of any one in Washington DC.

He had told me that he is working in Dubai on a oil rig but I wish if there in any women that reads this comment messages and can give me there email so I can share some of his photos to see if he is going by any other names with the same photos that I have gotten off of his Instagram profile.

James Valdim/Nicolas Oscar
by: Kandace

I wish there was a way to get the word out to every potential scam victim before they are a victim. I met my sub-human on Facebook when he sent me a friend request. FIRST friend request that I EVER accepted that I did not know them. But I was lonely and figured what would it hurt it was on the web and I would NEVER get hurt.

I was oh so wrong, I was hurt, emotionally, financially, spiritually, and physically as the stress took a toll on my body. I searched for his name on the web but found NOTHING, still I continued to talk to him, I was foolish but the "love" felt so good even if it was "fake" on his part. It was real to me. They are good at what they do, it is their job and their life, they can play with your heart and many others at the same time.

I just want everyone to please report this crime to the authorities. No you will never get your money back, but we need to get awareness out there and let the world know how big of a problem this really is. Report to your local and state police (awareness and investigation), report to ic3.gov (FBI awareness and link to other cases), Cell phones bought? call the company and black list the phone and it will not longer be able to be used for anything but internet.

Walmart transfers, call the toll free number and blacklist all names that money was sent to, they will not be able to pick up money again. Banks, call them and talk to their fraud department if you have an incident # from police they will send a report to the officer in charge of your case.

So many do not report because of shame but what a shame to not report and let more people out there be unaware of the magnitude of this crime. We must get more of these scum reported and yes it is not a cure all, but it is better than hiding in shame and doing nothing. You are worth it! We are better than them and it is time that you let at least one person know that this happens to many and it could happen to them.

Thank you.

The red flags went up when the first guy wanted to switch to email right away- nobody uses email!- Then he sent me a long, long bs email- with grammar errors and language and even slang - that made me laugh - it was so inconsistent with what was supposed to be a middle aged, educated man - ex he said:" thanks for dropping your email address to me" lol- no 60 something man with a PHD in engineering would forget basic grammar like the difference between too, to and two..etc -and use long winded sappy story like it was copy - pasted from somewhere.

He went on and on about how he thought Leonardo DiCaprio was an inspiration!! WHAaaaat???? If this was real- he was crazy! The second guy said in his profile he was a widower - I liked his picture - he messaged me- as soon as he said he works for himself, for his old company Chevron, as a pipeline engineer (yeah right in Sacramento?)

For oil rig senior engineer photo sharing, you guys can send it to me at :

jupitermaster9@gmail.com.

By the way, the scammer is using an ID by the name of James Weinston. You guys can check out his Instagram under the same ID to see if any match. I am currently working with scam haters united to find out more details. Would be great if you can do the same too.

For selfies, I do not receive any selfie from oil rigs, I do however receive photos of so called general health check before boarding the oil rig. It looks like a blood donation at GP.

And yes, don't send any money.

My guy already blocked me out from Hangouts because I confronted him on many things. Don't be afraid to confront them. You can do it. Be brave enough to embrace this.

Bruce Forsythe
by: Anonymous

Reading these stories mine is the same, I met a Bruce Forsythe on Instagram and we talked several weeks, then he "went to Alaska to take a job as Chief Mud Engineer" on an oil rig.

He is widowed, has two younger kids. I stalked him on FB & Instagram to see if any of the photos he sent me where anywhere else. I couldn't find any, which is why I started to trust him a little more each day.

He has worked hard but over 6 months he has taken 18K from me and it all sounded legit with the equipment etc, customs, extra fees, damaged product, had to send them back and go through customs. Every time promising this is the last time. Now he wants to break his contract with BP but if he does, he has to pay his way home and since all his money was put into purchasing the equipment he has nothing.

I've refused to pay this time. I've tried to corner him into confession but he hasn't broken yet.

Reading your messages make me want to catch this man even harder.

Wish me luck!

This scammer was my Romeo
by: Anonymous

Yes. He went by the name of Bernd Martinez from Roswell,GA. Widowed, had 11yr old daughter who was with a nanny. He was a Contract Oil Driller, on a rig off of Cuba. I fell head over heels in love!

He proposed within several messages. He contacted me to be friends on FB. I thought sure as he was a handsome guy, why not? I didn't know there was a scam like this until my daughter told me it was! I was devastated and I told him about some articles I had read, and that alot of his wording and styles were very similar, almost verbatim, to the articles I had read.

He said that he would never do that and was offended. I told him I had no money to send for emergencies and I would step back from our conversations for a awhile. That was the last message!

He got no money from me, but he got my heart and that hurts more than money. I'm 64 and feel like an old fool but much wiser for it! Too bad there are jerks like that in the world! I had hoped it was finally my time, what's left of it to have true love!

Don't trust anyone anymore.

Sane old story
by: Wiser Now

This oil rig engineer Claus contractor is the same story over and over Rewritten. They find out if you have a job and if you talk to them they flirt with you a little bit and they might send you something or lots of emails. They always say they have either a dead wife or she cheated on him or they say they have a child in boarding school or a sick parent or something to get your trust to get you some romance. They hook them of course and you do not want to lose this love as this new found love that you got so you send money then they have got your money and somebody's picked it up for them.

They have contacts all over the country called mules that pick up your money or transfer bank accounts or iTune cards then they take your money and use it for themselves and then they come back to you with more romance and sweetness and they even might tell you how life is going on their so-called rig or how they've had an emergency.

Then they ask you for more money or if you would do a cost of transfer for them or if you will pick up money in a big box that is supposed to be delivered to your house or they will ask you to open up an account where money laundering may occur and you be their mule.

It is a crying shame I know as I got taken for 27,000 It hurt and it still hurts. I learnt the truth and I thank God for the truth.

I found the real man's face on the internet and his real name. I'm thankful for that and I also contacted him so he knows what's going on. He has reported it to the FBI and the scammer is the one I do not have the identity of. I took every bank account of all the mules, all the emails and I reported it to Western Union, MoneyGram and also www.anyscam.Com who has a large database of scammers.

I believe they said about 3,000 men or more are in Nigeria stealing identities of real men and going for us women in the United States and elsewhere in the world. It seems that they want the older women that are career women that have had jobs for many years or raise their families because they know that widows means savings and we as women want security so of course we save.

I would just like to encourage you to do your homework. I pray to God in heaven that they get caught and they go to jail and they do prison time for what they've done to us.

They think nothing of us they trying to pay ourselves back or pay back phones, pay back the Bank, pay back credit cards, pay back loans, and try to keep the ship from sinking.

I learned the hard way and I'm as guilty as all but never again.

God bless you all and let's work together to see what we can do to get these Crooks

I’m wondering if this is the same person, but different name. I have been talking with a Donald Hedlund, who says he’s from Utah, single. Lost his wife and baby at childbirth a few years ago. Both parents are gone and no siblings. He is a civil engineer, and builds houses. He built a house in London for a client. The client paid him by check and now he cannot cash it or deposit it. He needed money for a plane ticket to get home but did not have enough to complete the purchase.

I sent him $400.00, but he said he made arrangements with his travel agent but now does not have enough to pay his hotel bill and wants me to send $1000.00. Says he can’t do anything with his bank in the states and does not carry his credit card with him.

I fell in love with this man, and he keeps telling me how lonely he is and how much he loves me. I asked him to call me or video chat but he says the lines are not very good where he is, but he can message me. I met him on messaging.

Are these two the same person? Scammer?

He tried a different tactic but I reported it to Instagram & had his account blocked from mine.

I usually don't reply to such things but this time was curious. I guess that can be unsafe, too.

Patrick Smith
by: Anonymous

I fell I thought in love with a guy name Patrick Smith. He worked on a oil rig over by London. Everything was going good until few days ago. He said he got his contract pay off for 3 million dollars and no one in London would deposit it in his bank. So they gave him a atm card and he cant get a plane ticket to New York. Yeah I was about to fall for it until they wanted me to send 575 dollars for insurance through western union.

If I would have done it he wanted me to take out 10 thousand dollars for a plane ticket.

Just wanting to know if anyone else been contacted by him.

Are you really willing to go to him? I would Not. Here is a true story. My friend sold her house and went to Missouri to meet a man she was talking to on Facebook for over a year and a half. I did try to talk her out of it. She sold everything but her clothing. She was there for about two weeks and he started changing, he had a daughter also.

Within three weeks he started abusing her for not picking something up off the floor or doing the dishes right away or if he had dirty clothes and not washing them right away. She sent me pictures of her black eyes and beat up, bruises on her stomach and arms, legs where he kicked her.

He took all her money and I sent her some to go to a hotel and I went after her and drove straight through to get her out of there.

Everyone has to be careful of these phony guys when there is so many you can meet face to face. Why does he want you there and not him come to you? Have you heard of Human Trafficking, a lot of that is going on now too.

My James just emailed me the other night asking for another ITunes card and I said no and to please stop emailing me. I am sorry but I do not believe you should go see this man for you really do not know who he is. Video talk with him for they are good with words.

James I know wanted me to come to Texas to meet him and I would not do that. Please be safe for you sake.

God Bless.

Picture search

When I finally did the picture search in Google images is when I knew my scummer was not who he said he was. Go to Google, click on images. Then click on the camera shaped icon in the Google search for images bar.

You can then download an image in the paste a URL or upload an image from your computer. As soon as you do this if the picture is somewhere on the internet it will come up in the matching websites.

I learned how to do this on YouTube when I searched: "search a photo on the internet" on Google.

NY oil rig engineer
by: Anonymous shy girl

First he approached me through an Instagram account. I have been hurting before and I take all precautions to not fall for him.

He said he was an engineer and contractor at the same time. Now working under contract with shell in dubai. Came from NY. Had a son 9yo. Divorced as wife slept with his best friend. Mother is old and staying in a nursing house.

He said he's going to come and see me right after his contract is finished. Never been on the phone. Every day we are chatting.

Story started when he said he received compensation from a previous worked company and had someone receive it for him or if not, the money will be returned and used as treasury.

I received an email from the oil corp mentioned that I have been named as his wife and I will be receiving the money on his behalf. Later a delivery company contacted me and requested 750usd for service charges and I was tricked.

I paid. 2 days later the delivery company emailed and told me that the consignment cannot go through customs and had to apply for a UN Red tag as non inspection certificate to skip the customs. The box will be shipped from Parma Italy. This time they asked for 2250euro.

I started to ask for help from friends amd families and they have been telling me that it's a scam and I shouldn't pay anything. I started to dig in.

I emailed the oil corp and they replied and said that the email is not from them. They were using a free domain instead of company official email. Same goes to the delivery service. Using a free domain.

My search has brought me here and lots of other evidence that he might be a scammer. I am a bit broken because I shouldn't have let myself trust someone whom you have never met. I confronted him and he said that I don't love him enough to help him and I was to destroy his plan for our future.

Luckily, God saved me. Pray that I'll meet up with someone who is real. Damn this is going to be funny in 5 to 10 years forward.

If you believe he is real then go to him. BUT DO NOT SEND HIM ANY MONEY or you will NEVER see him. You did not tell us where he is?? Is he on an oil rig??? Is he in the Middle East??

But for the love of all that is holy, be careful. I believe he is a scammer and is playing you.

And you called him a cheater.

So, my advice is if you want to go, go, DO NOT GIVE HIM A DIME.

But if you are skeptical, cut it OFF now.

Give us more details.

Have you ever skyped or face timed with him??

Oil rig senior engineer & Frank

Just had to answer these two ladies. I have heard both of these stories. School one, one of their buddies pose as their son/ daughter to email you and build up a relationship with you and appeal to you maternal side. Realistically the school would sort this out, they have to have insurance for these trips. I was told the same, cold hearted, told they were crying because of me.

Frank post, yes told the same, death and had to compensate family. I couldn't believe he would tell such a story but he did.

Also, no point comparing pictures or names, they use different pictures and different names. They can take months chatting and gaining your trust. This is a job for them they have all the time in the world, you are one of many.

Please don't be taken in, they take more than your money, they take your pride, trust and a gaping hole emotionally. They are good at what they do.

Oil rig off of Canada
by: Debbie

To anonymous ref Frank Augusten. He sounds like Charles Bothmann I was talking to a few months ago, and he was from Canada with a 20 year old daughter, and divorced. He said he lived in Boston Mass. and worked on an off shore rig somewhere in the Northeast. He got me for $6000.00 to help pay for broken equipment and shipping.

He always somehow came up with the bulk of the money and the balance was always around $1500.00.
I checked out his address and it came up with multiple addresses in the West. Reverse phone number pegged it to Arizona. I reported him and his mules to the FBI, and I notified the banks with account numbers and names.

Don’t send him money as he admitted to me he was a scammer.

I also fell in love with this man.

Oil rig senior engineer
by: Anonymous

Hi, I Just wanted to share if this makes sense.
This guy found me on smule apps (not even a dating site or social media). Then, we talk and after a few days, he asks me to chat with him via Hangouts. I refused, at least twice. Then he insisted, saying he was hardly on the apps and more on emails and stuffs. So, okay, I did.

Then we chatted, had fun, enjoyed the conversations and after a few weeks, he said he wanted more than a friendship, life partner, etc.
Okay, before I go further, he said he lost his wife 2 years ago, and has a 14 year old son in boarding school in UK. Has a sister in Vienna, and very few real friends. He said he totally shut himself for two years and now is only trying to get to know people or starts a relationship.

Now, he said, he has an assignment in the Persian gulf for 10 weeks and in our recent quarrel he claimed he's trying to come see me and he managed to reduce 3 weeks off the assignment? Is that even possible? His son, emailed me every two days and it's my pleasure to entertain his emails.

Now, his son is on annual excursion for two weeks, and upon 2nd day arrival, lost his belongings and he asked me to pay the teacher on his behalf. When I questioned him what is the school policy, and what are the school doing about this, he accused me of not being helpful.

I don't know what to think at this moment, really. He's the bald guy with blue eyes, aged 52 he claimed.

If anyone of you have the same bald and blue eyed guy, can you send me his photos, so I can see if he's the same guy?

I'm now very confused.

Oil Rig Scammer Stole My Heart
by: Anonymous

His name is Rafael Dominic, rafaeldominic703@gmail.com and he is on HANGOUTS. I met him playing a WORD game. He was handsome and charming. Charming for 3 1/2 months. I fell in love. He sent me a cubic zirconia engagement ring and a teddy bear, claiming the ring would be replaced by a diamond when he got off the rig after his contract was over and we could start seeing each other.

The teddy bear represented "his body" which he would certainly replace soon. He romanced me with songs, pictures, sweet talk and poems. I fell completely in love with him. Then, 1 week before he was supposed to meet me, he dropped the bomb. There was a fire on the rig - his equipment needed repairing, it was his responsibility to get the corpses back to the families and he was burned on his leg badly and needed medical attention, but he spent much on his contract and "would be paid when the job was completed" but needed money now.

When I refused, he got irate called me "greedy, evil and coldhearted." I didn't send him any money, but ladies look out, I have never felt so alone since this happened - replacing his charms would be impossible.

I met Frank Augusten on Tinder three months ago. He says he works on an oil rig off the coast of Canada. He sent me photos of himself and his family a 15 year old boy, and his wife died of Cardiac Heart disease.

He claims he is from Kansas but was born in Norway. He says he is the contractor hired to do the work. He is not allowed to use video face timing on the rig but can make phone calls.

About two weeks ago he asked me for £3,500 to pay for the parts to fix the drill. He said him and his co workers had clubbed together to pay the bulk of funds needed. I asked why it was not insured.

I have not sent the money but worry that what he tells me maybe true.

Any advice would be most welcome

Oil Rig Scam
by: Anonymous

I am an old woman of 78 years and was assailed by a scammer named Greg Wilson. Fortunately, I never reached the point where "he" was asking for money as we got stuck on why I wouldn't get a cell phone. The ploy was he was a supervisor of some sort on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

I even received pictures of his "work" on the oil rig. Supposedly he had a daughter in boarding school and I was supposed to contact her; I thought this highly inappropriate, no doubt the daughter is a second scammer.

No doubt somewhere this man really exists, a victim of identity theft. These "men" are frequently women and psychologically sophisticated preying on people's weakness. I believe that my hidden scammer who ran the scene was a woman with accomplices who reported to her. I also believe that they were associated with a foreign religious school. Hence a lead "With God, all things are able or some such words.

It was some time ago and I have recovered. I confronted these people, threatening them with cosmic retaliation for involving spirituality and God in their schemes. I ended up receiving Red Devil Icons, a telephone call, and attempts to involve me in further scam attempts; they also tried scamming one of my Facebook friends.

The experience ruined my Facebook activities with friends as I had to protect them by confessing that I had been had; the lead was a friend request with a reference to God that I accepted. Very unpleasant, fortunately I had enough common sense to realize that few men will fall in love with an old woman on the Internet.

I tried reporting this to authorities with very little success partially because I had no financial losses. These activities apparently are international in scope and very numerous and law enforcement does not have the personnel to follow up.

I believe these people were associated with a religious school that was training people for work with computers in a foreign country and that a woman was overseeing the entire operation. Because I confronted so successfully, I was turned over to the superior. E

Oil rigs scammer (white beard, grey hair)
by: Anonymous

Two friend requests (a older and a younger one) from a social platform, I was depressed and want to talk to someone, so I accept the grey hair guy's request. First few days, he just asked a question or answered my question and disappeared for a whole day. Yesterday, he chatted with me over 3 hours, I check the timeline here matched his disappearance (or his busy oil rigs life! haha). He must be busy with others.

I was busy for the last few days until yesterday, I found here, that proves he is a scammer. I was suspicious more when I talk to him more. He just asked simple questions and let me elaborate the answer. I feel he is digging my privacy. When I ask him to talk about himself he would give simple answers.

He would ignore my questions (simply like what movies, TV show he likes, ask more about backpacking to the mountain) and continues to ask me simple questions again.

He would send me general oil rig related photos and paragraphs, like I can get them by searching online.

I feel bad if anyone falls in love with these scammers. I think I should go out to meet some one if I need a companion rather than letting people approach me like this.

Alaskan Oil Rig scammer
by: Cheryl

My scammers name is Morgan Karl, Independent contractor on an Alaskan oil rig. We started chatting on Words with Friends. We chatted for about 2 weeks the he asksed for my phone number and I gave it to him. He texted me every morning with beautiful poems, he called me his queen, told me that I was the one and he wanted to marry me. He texted me every night and just before he went to bed he would call to say how much he wanted me and loved me.

Two later he asked if I could send him an Itune card worth $100.00 dollars, I did. He continues with the same for a while, said he want to move to Seattle to be close to me. He sent picture of himself and his granddaughter. He said he had been widowed for 4 years and lived on the rig for almost a year that his contract was about to be up.

Then the man had the audacity to ask to borrow $2340 to purchase 18 electric jackets for his crew so that he would not get sued.

Once I told him no, I never heard from him again.

These scammers know how to work you, I received messages like this.

Hello good morning my darling, how are you ? Honey I have been so thoughtful this morning thinking of you, thinking of us. But so happy cause I know i’m the luckiest guy alive, because I have you by my side, I see you every time I wake, and we are gonna leave together forever. This is the real love I have always dreamt of, I owe you a lifetime, because my future is great with you, thanks for being my Angel, love you, kisses.

Receiving messages like this, discussing future plans, laughing at jokes, teasing each other all the usual things from a normal relationship make you believe it is real.

The shock is that it isn't, it is fake, they drop you and move onto the next victim if you realise and questioned them. It is heartbreaking and hurts to be used but that is what they do, it is how they make a living.

Hell Have No Fury Than A Woman Scorned
by: Anonymous

Ever heard of this saying? It's what came to mind when I read the comments two women were having over a scammeron here. So many times when women are cheated on they blame the other woman not the man. Ladies take heed of the comments from others, he is playing you both.

It is also the reason why I am posting this. I found out the love of my life was a scammer before I sent the money. I contacted the real person behind the picture who told me he had emails from women every week saying they were being scammed by a man using his pictures for 5 years and couldn't stop it.

Sad but what was worse were comments on his FB page accusing him of being the scammer. The man has been blogging for many years and clearly is who he says he is. Also the comments from his wife, these men who innocently have their pictures stolen, have families, sometimes wife/ partner.

This poor woman said she had emails from women claiming her husband was cheating on her and stolen money from them. Clearly had not done their homework before making such serious allegations. This continual harressment was having a bad effect on their relationship and children.

I had continued playing along but reading this knew I shouldn't encourage someone so I passed on his numbers, email and anything I had to money laundering authorities. This money laundering is funding terrorism and goodness knows what else.
I wish social media would make people aware of their tactics.

When you fall in love with an oil rig scammer...
by: Anonymous

Think about this ladies, if you have the money then you can continue a 'relationship' with these scammers. But if you want real relationship, they can't give you any at all unless you don't mind a pseudo one. Mine claimed to love me but in the end, he left me for other target when I discovered who he really is.

To save all the tears and illusion, better to break off with them before you get yourself hurt. Worst of all, these scammers can sound very religious, calling themselves God fearing men but do they really fear God? Or do they even know who this God is? All of us will be judge one day, so if they are really God fearing men then they better watch out for their own lives before it is too late.

He even have a linkedin account that looks real and IG and multiple FB account, photos looks all real but mostly old and will try to send them on a case by case depending on the topic that you are talking just to get to know you and get your trust.

Mark Austin claims to be in Australia, has his own house in Houston, 1 son 11 yr old, 2 yrs widowed, no more family as all died. Mother Australian Father French. In his Linkedin shows very impressive and looks a real one, worked at KBR. IG account markaustin3232 not sure how they are able to take and spread those stolen photos. If you look at his IG he is very handsom photo and will fall in love with his smile (I wished he was real)

Ladies, he is NOT real. He is a scammer. He is more than likely Nigerian. He is also scamming other women with the same promises. It is just ironic that you both found each other being scammed by the same creature.

BLOCK him and be done with it.

He is a piece of dirt stuck on the bottom of your shoes. There is no telling how many names he uses.

I also don't want to appear heartless or mean. We are all on this site for the same reason. We were scammed!!! I gave up not one dime to the freak that contacted me and he is gone. But I feel compelled to keep in touch with this site. And I have met several wonderful women through personal contact.

Get rid of HIM.

What you talking about, I Never called him not even once. You cannot call a Rig and you did not know that. My Lawyer did that. Yah my Grandchildren was waiting for him too but he always had an excuse.

Isn't that something when a man tells two women and also telling how many more he is saying the same thing to.

You must have doubts or you would not be here. Its great hearing others stories of what one has gone through and how some of us lost money and our hearts. This site has helped me a lot and that is why I am here.

It is a good support group. So many stories exactly the same, there's just too many scammers to count. Thanks to Ed and Steve we can be open here.

But if you talk to him you can have him. I don't want such a man. There are real men out there that are Honest. Oh Believe me I do not need taken care of either and he knows this.

My Best To You and Hope and Pray it all works out for you.

God Bless

I do not know this man but have read what the 2 woman on here have posted. You two are bickering over a scammer. Please get it through your head. I know that may sound mean but please save yourself the heartache.

I too was scammed. Told he would be here, went days without hearing from him then boom he was in an accident and couldn't come. Well my scammer finally admitted who he really was. A Nigerian in his 20's. They use our hearts against us especially when it involves kids.

Please stop and really think about it!! I wish you the best!!

I know the heartache you feel.

Robin Williams
by: Wiser Now

Nice scammer said that he was from Brazil as well as a heavy accent as well but he did not go by the name of Robin Williams. He got me for $28,000 and if I'd only knew then what I know now, I know now that they have to have a bond to build stupid oil rigs and also they have to have insurance. I was pretty naive and not online much and never dated online or had much to do with anybody in that category so he convinced me with his pictures and his stories and his romance was out of this world and before I knew it I ate the plastic worm.

I learned a hard lesson and anybody that reads this please know that they have a bond that their money comes out of the bond the same way as school bond, airport Bond or Highway bond is built. The same principles and if they need money from a poor woman on the outside what kind of man does that anyway.

so my gut was speaking to me but my heart was not listening to it and I was being led astray. They take you at your weakness so we need to educate ourselves and never in my life would I imagine this.

This is wiser now and my scammer said he worked for British Petroleum as a contractor putting up scaffolding and oil rigs and said his crane broke down and he needed $10,000 to fix it. Then he said he needed technicians to fix the crane and airfare and hotels and then reverted to iTunes cards.

I ask myself how I could have believed all that but tell me what a sophisticated oil tycoon would be doing selling iTune cards

He is setting you up. Why does he need a leave from the Army? Do not give him any information. Please.

I was scammed because I believed the Nigerian who I thought was German.

I am so glad you told this man no because I to had to the same thing happen to me but with another man. He had me buy his daughter a cell phone and I did but I found out that it was a Nigerian scam but I got that phone back.

So be glad you didn't send anything to his kid because more than likely it was not going to his child but to him and that would been the begining of I need this and I want this and it would of never stopped.

US Army in Sudan (not soldier)
by: Anonymous

Hi Ladies, my story probaberly does not fall under here but I could not find the right category for it.

This guy I met on a dating app claims to work as a software engineer with the US army on a 1-year contract in Sudan. He suddenly said he wanted to apply leave to come see me, leave is granted but he is giving me the heads up that *some details will be needed from me to fill up the document to be sure he is truly coming to meet me.*

Isn't his leave his to plan? He said whom he is going to meet has a document to fill too.

I am suspicious and uncomfortable. Is this really true? (Haven't seen the form yet)?

Robbin Williams
by: Anonymous

Feeling stipid. My scammer was Robbin Williams. Widow with 15 yr old daughter in boarding school while he is working as an engineer on an oil rig in Dubai. Hasn't asked for money yet but is so in love with me after a week.

Didn't want to message on messenger so he asked me to download Viber. This man claims to already be so in love with me already it makes no sense to me. Spoke on the phone. Lived in usa 30 yrs but from Brazil and still has heavy accent????

Makes no sense. Has anyone else crossed paths with this person? I cannot find ANY information on this person?

I love him and I would never call him like you have and I don't need him to take care of me. I just want him and I think he would be man enough to give me closure.

If he picks you and I hope he explains to the granddaughter why he said he would see her soon.

The one that contacted me was working in the Gulf of Mexico. He fell madly in love with me and asked me to marry him the 2nd night I talked to him. I’m not stupid or needy so the answer was no.

He also was a widower with a teenage daughter in a boarding school in Canada and a 12 year old son at home with a Nanny. Finally after about a week he told me his daughters birthday was coming up and he would like for me to send her a laptop and cellphone as gifts. I told him sorry it’s not happening. But, I’m in the middle of the ocean and I can’t get her anything.

I told him he had his computer or phone he could do as much as I could do. He initially contacted me on Words with Friends, wanted to talk on Hangouts. I’ve deleted him.

I feel sorry for the women on here who have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars to one of these scammers. They are good, especially if you are lonely. Thankfully I’m not one of those women.

Please don’t believe anything they say. He did send me a picture but I don’t know how to search as it would be interested where it would turn up.

Victim of photo with daughter
by: Anonymous

I did find the guy and contacted him via messenger. He didn’t seem interested. I didn’t even get a thank you. I know if my picture was out there, I’d want to know which is why I took the time to find the guy in photo. But, I did my part & ,to be honest, I just want to put all of this behind me.

I am sorry you are going through this and believing in him. Lets see if he comes to which one of us since I been told the same things. Pray you have not sent him money as I have with all his promises and how he will take care of me when he gets to me. If you have not heard from him maybe he is on his way to you. Keep the faith. Time will tell all.

Wish you the best of luck. As I said we only talk for two years till I blocked him and then he came back and wanted another chance like two ta three weeks ago. I got a e-mail from him last night matter of fact at 11:42 pm. So as I said my best to you...God Bless You

Sarah / Finding the Victims
by: Anonymous

I found mine on Scam Haters United. The scammer was Chris Anderson using the photo of a man named Jay Francis McHugh. They showed Mr. McHugh's photos and I saw the one he used on Words with Friends. The one he used on Messenger and the one he uses on his Gmail.

Apparently he used the name Fred Daniels at one time too. I notified Mr. McHugh via Facebook Messenger. There are other sites that have identified the victims as well. Check It out.

Austin Reed/GULF OF MEXICO
by: Anonymous

Yes there are oil rigs off the Texas Coast. I really hope You do not believe he is real.

Because the one I had was real religious too. They all eventually ask for money. And he was in the Gulf of Mexico.

After two years why haven't you met him yet?

Low life scums
by: Helen

I have so many people messaging me that I know are scammers. When they asked me what I’m doing on the site I tell them the same thing that they’re doing. When they asked a question about how long I’ve been on the site and what I’m looking for I just tell them, I am not lonely I am not vulnerable and I don’t need a man to do for me what I could do for myself.

So if you’re looking for money you need to get a job. There are so many women and men out there that appeared to be lonely and vulnerable. This is what they look for. I am not a good sleeper so at times I don’t want to go to a dating site to see what emails I have. As soon as they see one line they can’t match it but little do they know I am not the one.

I just hope the men and women here understand that these men and women scammers are nothing but trash and scum of the earth. When the scammers know that I’m onto them their profile goes away. Also keep your Facebook profile is private. I do not have anything public on there. No one can contact me.

There are like 30 Austin Reeds and none of this sounds like the one I was talking to. He was very intelligent and he never confessed to loving me until we talked for 2 years and then he did. Is there any oil rigs in the gulf of Mexixo on the Texans side. I would really love to know and he was real religious and talked about God all the time

I did try to find the victim in the photo but it’s close to impossible because I don’t know his name. What also bothers me is the scammer is using a photo of the victim with his daughter.
