QUESTIONABLE NIGERIAN DATING SCAM FROM JENNS or JOHANNES HUGO

by C
(California)

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 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 him 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 home, 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 how 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...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.

Jenns Hugo May 19, 2018
by: Anonymous

i found Jenns Hugo on match.com, and his profile name was PlayfulBit7B71. I saved 2 pics from his profile which I am happy to share. The same basic story, he raised quarterhorses in texas, Judy his wife died of cancer, Kim his 14 yr old daughter was moving from Houston to LA to live with him. He never asked for anything. But some of the details he shared just didnt add up.

He asked for my cell and we began texting, sometimes for hours on end. I saved a transcript of our texts in pdf format, which I am also happy to share.

I am gonna miss him LOL!

I don't have his REAL photo--but if you Google Scott Humpal that's the pictures he's using.

My son-in-law did a reverse google search with the picture that he had sent me through Match.com and it came up with Scott Humpal from Corpus Christi. All the pictures that "Jenns" sent me were pictures stolen from Mr. Humpal's Facebook, which included his kids at a younger age.

The pictures true identity
by: Anonymous

How did you find the identity of the real man in the picture. My scammer wanted to call me on video so he could prove he was the man in the picture. How do you find the true identity of the guy whose picture he used?

My guy was definitely a con man and scammer. Should have accepted the video call just to see if he was the man in the picture. Don’t know how he would have faked that. He was Italian not Nigerian.

So he said.

Everything else was lies!
