Scammer got my info from Facebook and began communicating. We actually communicated for several weeks, he said he was a Shell Oil Engineer, had an 8 year old daughter.


I knew it was too good to be true, but just let him continue to play his game (he did not know I was playing a game also). You could easily pick up his bad vocabulary/spelling, not typical of a real Engineer. Of course he began professing love within days. Finally after several weeks, said he wanted me to install an app to communicate off FB/Messenger.

Said his account had been hacked. Went to Hangout app. Then within hours of doing this he asked for money for his daughter. He was supposed to be out of the country and she needed medication as she was in school.

I just told him it was Saturday and I could not get access to my savings bank as it was closed. I then deleted the conversation and this app from my phone. Went to Facebook he had canceled his FB page.

Hope I have did everything right. Below is just one picture he used.

Using Mr. Scott Michael Picture, same story fell in love with my picture on facebook and just had to say hello, proceeded from there to wanting ITunes cards, money, all the while professing I was his Queen and he was working on an oil rig in Houston TX, had two teenage daughters who were in boarding school.

They were all in the states on a Visa and needed money help to get his green card so he could stay in the states and come and marry me and bring his girls, so they could have a mother since their mother had been killed in a car wreck. Always saying I was his queen and how much he loved me and putting youtube love songs in his messages etc.

Well thank God I have a grandson in police work who sent me the whole story along with Mr Michael's picture and how they took other pictures and used them as fronts. I learned the hard way, But thank God I did. So now I am very careful who I talk to on face book and let be my friend. Do wish I had asked first before I fell hook line and sinker!! But will be all right now I have my head straightened out.

Almost cost me a close relationship with another of my grandsons. Too bad we don't have a way to warn older lonely people except look and be very careful of people you do not know who all at once wants to be your friend !!

He found me on Facebook and then when I began to be suspicious I used the Google Facial recognition software, and bingo it said scammer was using the photo of Keith C. Rooker, Financial guy from Nevada.

Great job girlfriend!!! That is how you do it. However, I feel no need to explain. But nothing wrong with what you did.

What was the app you downloaded ?
