Scams

by Jean
(New York, New York)

Okay so my first encounter left me both mentally and physcially drained. After finding what I thought to be the love of my life I shortly found out that I was being scammed.


Beware......the most beautiful emails I received made my heart ache and my breath taken away. I really really thougtht this was the best thing to come into my life.

My ex husband had been forgotten, and this was my new life until.....He started asking me for money.

It was only a loan and that he would pay me back when he got back to the states. The pictures of his home were magnificant, he was a dream come true and easy eye candy. Someone that I could spend the rest of my life with.

Than it started...he handed over his assignment in London and was ready to come home but was short of money????? When I told him I had a friend in London that would put him and his son up until his affairs were in order that went unnoticed.

When I told him that he did not have to fly into any of the tri-state airports to go home and I will meet my sister and drive to him that also went unanswered.

The most troubling came when I told him that my daughter was ill and could not help him his emails were still "how he would stand by my side and how could I leave him in London with his son (Blake aka Jason from Focus Hawaii Modeling Agency)".

The topper on the cake was when he told me he had gone to the doctor because all the negotiations had made him sick and that he contracted Malaria and Thyphoid....Where was he in the concrete Jungles of England.

His writing became sloppy and did not make sense only when he was writing me poetry that was probably pulled off the internet like everything else he sent.

DAVID SHRODE IS A REAL PERSON LIVING IN MESA, AZ BUT NOT THE PERSON ON THE INTERNET SO BEWARE. HE NO LONGER HAS AN ACCOUNT UNDER THIS NAME ON MATCH BUT AM SURE THAT HE WILL USE ANOTHER.

Okay so story number 2: Enter Baldric A. Adel. Same thing wife died in car accident has an 11 year old son. So I decided to play with this individual.

I told them that I had already been scammed by the Nigerians and was not going down that road again. I asked for a real name (hence Baldric) a phone number, his home address (which I never got) and his company name. I did my research and sent him back a note as to WTF nothing you have sent me is true.

There is no construction company in any of London called Star-Tech Construction Company, that the number he sent me does not work that we couldn't find it anywhere. The next day good old Baldric was not longer on Match.com.

How convenient. I think that this was the same person that contacted me before and knew that I was hip to his crap. You know what makes you wonder how true these sites are??????? Scary and sad that people are out there using these sites to extort money out of lonely, desperate people.

Sorry suckers whoever you are. I WORK HARD FOR MY MONEY AND WILL BE KEEPING IT IN MY WALLET - NOT YOURS.

So with all that said you can now add three more names to your collection should you be keeping a log.

Wish you all the luck in the world finding your true life match out there someday.

Nigerian Poet Dating Scammer
by: CT

Ladies, beware! Your prince charming is too good to be true. He writes poetry, will buy you a house, he is a WIDOWER, a doctor with a step-son studying overseas and is originally from the UK.

He offered marriage within three days and "couldn't live without our relationship."

He will send you a questionnaire and ask "stupid" questions like: favorite color, ice cream, car, flower etc.

Quite possibly to gain future passwords to your online accounts.

Alias used on Match.com was Mr. Ronald Gardener, email: ronaldgardener1961@hotmail.com.

This happened on November 12, 2013.

Again, on November 24, 2013, another similar scammer posing once again as a widower, originally from Denmark, now living in Belgium. He immediately asked to be taken off the site and onto Yahoo for chatting.

His name is Bruce002asaurus on ok cupid dating site.

I was the same response:
by: Anonymous

I am sorry for what you have been through. This was my first experience and honestly I look back now less than a year later and wonder what the hell I was thinking.

Answer is I was not.

I used to think women who fell for this crap were ridiculous. Now I can see that pain and loneliness make victims.

I am more aware, more in tune with ME, I will never be a victim again, I hope you will not either.

Baldric A. Adel - Jean from New York
by: Anonymous

I was curious and I was just taken not hard thank God, by a Baldric B. Adel and when I confronted him with this information he claimed he knew all about it, was a scorned match and occurred after we met Dec 9, 2011.

That he removed his match info after this. I could not believe how hard he tried to convince me he was not a "scammer" and how could I do this to him, not trust him or God. REALLY?

Looking back over our conversation history and all the emails over the last 6 weeks it is evident that money is a theme with the most recent need of 5,000 for City Planners in Kogi Africa to inspect his work so he can "come home" and start his new life.

I did not send money for this but did for hotel rooms during the strike over there that was a valid strike, He informed me of everything that was "happening" as a result of the strike to him and I was concerned for his son as well who is "9".

There are so many red flags it is no wonder I have spent the last 3 weeks pouring over emails, chat history, texts, and searching the internet for any information I could find.

I hit on this story using his sons name, Dave Baldric Adel and almost fell over, it was almost identical information.

Thank you!
