Richard Zest Scammer

by Anonymous
(Country)

I was scammed by Richard Zest off of Match.com. His username was flut154. He stated his birthday was 01/01/1967. He claims to have been married and lost his wife Mariam in a car wreck three years before when Ramon (dob 07/14) his son was only three months old.


He was bidding a job in Houston and won the bid. He had to be in the Gulf of Mexico that Saturday and has been there ever since. Of course like all the other stories he quickly fell in love something he has done since loosing his late wife.

He even went as far to give me his sister's Sofia's phone (+441268833275) number in England who was taking care of his son Ramon. We spoke on occasion. He was wanting his son to come live with me and that we would go to England upon his return to go pick him up.

He was very handsome in all of his pictures, quite the total package. I found a website for his so called company abzoil-gas.atwebpages.com in which all of the information could not be verified. He used email address of Richard_ze1@engineer.com and richard_ze1@abzo-gas.com.

When I started questioning things like the false information on the website, etc. I had already been taken. I would like to share pictures, etc.

I am in shock with Richard Zest
by: Anonymous

I am writing again as I really would like to speak with other people that have been scammed by him but do not know how to contact.

My email is sheilajones1947@icloud.com.

I met him on Match 3 years ago and have just been dumped and for some reason just put a search on his name and could not believe it brought me straight to this page. I am in total shock and disbelief.

Please share with me if you would like.

I am in total shock
by: Anonymous

I cannot believe what I have just read. I have had an online relationship with this man for the last three years and suddenly everything stopped a week ago. I was completely baffled and kept calling and texting him but nada. But for some reason I thought I would just search his name and lo and behold it brought me straight to this site.

I am so in shock and have been a complete idiot being sucked into this person. Yes there was an accident on the oil rig and yes I sent him $15000 and then he has been stuck on this rig as his crew won't let him leave so of course I sent him money every month to feed them at 1000 a month OMG WTF. I owe about 35000 in credit card debt which I am paying on every month and it's killing me. I just never thought for a moment it was a scam.

I just totally fell for this guy.

OMG I wonder who he is sucking in now. He is very clever at what he does. I don't know if the photos are true or if he is black but I always remember saying to him very early on are you sure you are not middle eastern cos you sure sound it. I am in shock such shock.

What a complete idiot I am. He only went by Richard Zest but never told me he had a son. But one thing is that he rarely talked about himself and you could not get much out of him which I sometimes questioned why. OMG I cannot believe this. To me he was so divine so comforting amusing very sexy and just so likable. I really am in shock. I feel so terribly sorry for his next victim.

It's so easy to fall for him. And you are right about his birthdate. OMG. Please feel free anyone who wants to talk to me. This was just about a three year relationship of phone calls texting emails songs OMG I am stunned I am numb.

Same scam on Eharmony. Same handsome pictures, same story about son, but changed his name to Raji. Sister Sophia in UK, spoke to her too. His wife was supposedly killed by men who entered their home in UAE when baby was just 3 months old.

Same oil rig contract job story with a big accident occurring a week and a half into the job and he needed money. Same 3-4 hours per day phone calls, dedicating songs, sending me gifts, major love demonstrations, marriage proposals, etc.

We almost purchased a house together, signed contract and all.

It's ALL fake.

Thank God I never sent him money. He provided some company name Affordable Logistics in Houston as the supplier to send the money to. Don't fall for him.

Fraud fake heartless
by: Anonymous

Hi. If anyone would like to share a photo or info etc my email is brownshuga_08@hotmail.com

This guy if he is the same used to send long poems every morning and talk about god and marriage and was phoning 3-4 times a day talking about how he is working on some site to do with oil and building gas station gas enginer and he owned the company.

These people are evil. I found out he is not an American citizen but an african man living in Africa pretending to have gone to africa to sort his oil business out in lagos Africa.

Whatever you do dont send money to them or give your bank details. If you go on the internet and type in oil enginer frauds Africa or fraud identity or African men scamming women overseas, I tell you it will make you sick that there are people out there so damm heartless.

Please be cautious as have lost my house and I am now havin to live with my daughter after falling in love with this fraud and believing I was selling up house and moving to america to get married and even planned our whole future for nearly a year.

Kenny James was his so called name.

I think I may be being scammed too.....

I am afraid the same is happening to me. I'd love to share pictures and stories. I'm right on the edge of being totally taken by him and scared to death he's not real.

He really knows how to romance somebody.
