Scammed by POF Collin Burt.
Just like everyone said, moved quickly to private email. He took down his profile quickly to show that he found the one. Said he was a construction engineer.
At the time he said he was working on roads and bridges in Iceland. When the job was over, he said he came home to NYC. He said he had to pick between three new jobs, one being in Lagos, Nigeria. We talked, texted and emailed for approx. three weeks, daily.
Very quickly he was professing his love. Red flags were popping up, no extra pictures, only two. Even though he said he had phone capable of taking selfies, refused to send one.
He was going to fly to the States to meet me, for a week. He was going to stay at the Marriott hotel, not at my house. He was to arrive Dec. 6th. He texted me that he was stressing out. I said what was the source of his stress. He said his credit card was not working and he needed money for the heavy equipment or it could delay his trip to see me.
He said he would pay me back when I saw him on the 6th. I told him I don't loan money to anyone. He was relentless with please, swear by God to pay me back, why I am I doing this to him , etc.
I said the Chase bank in NYC was open and he should call them. He said they would not pick up. Then I said call your boss, he said his boss deposited the money to cover the costs into his account and it was up to him to figure it out.
Red flag after red flag. Be warned, Collin Burt, I'm assuming that is not his real name. After calling me all day yesterday, me not taking his calls, more texts saying he's not the person I think he is, scammer, ya I called him out, said the jig was up.
No calls or text today, good bye looser.
