They are on Sorpia

by Terri
(United States)

I have encountered scams on my Skype as well. A Dr. David Mark who is a surgeon in Syria, blah, blah, blah. The minute he/they started typing, I knew it was fraud.


Well, I played along then told them I would send $5000 and then I told them I sent it to this address, which was wrong of course... and I got bold letters out of that. I laughed so hard! I got invited to join Zorpia which is a dating site.

It was fun scrolling through the names so I began to chat with a few of them... They all start out the same, and of course within the second message it's "God has brought us together".. and trying to sound romantic. But for someone who is supposedly a doctor or physicist cannot write worth a dang.

Those are the signs to MOVE ON and don't even try. I'm sure that I'm going to be asked for money soon... and of course I'm going to say "ok" then have my fun and never look back.

Good luck to anyone that has ever sent them money. When you research the names you're given, you will not find the matches.

So ALWAYS do your research before you even start a conversation with someone.

Thank you for your time!

Dr.David Mark, Syria!
by: Anonymous

Oh he is still at it then. I had exactly the same for almost a year about I need to get out of the camp as my son is sick etc, etc. Please help me I will pay you back three fold, ha, ha!.

My Late wife and poorly daughter were killed in a car crash and I have had to leave my son in boarding school in Africa as I cannot break my contract with the U.N.

You name it he tried it! I played along as well but beware he keeps coming back when he see's your name on anything.

He said his full name is David Morgan Mark??? and he is from San Antonio Texas.

I have a word for him but cannot put it here!!!!

I also was contacted by Dr. David Mark in Skype that's why I researched to find his real Identity. He pretended to be a surgeon assigned in Syria and he has a 15 years old son left in boarding school in America 😂 and he lost his wife after giving birth to the second child.

I wonder that a certain doctor would waste his time chit chatting just because he is bored in the office??? We chatted for more than two weeks. I hangout because Jr said his signal in Skype is poor. Now that I read this page I told him to stop victimizing people.

Using Dr. Davis Mark
by: Anonymous

He sounded nice and I thought he was just an English Language Learner at first. He has just been very fun to talk to and nice. I met him on twitter so I just thought he was was an old guy who was lonely. A friend said she had had trouble with a few people from a dating site and they all used simple names with Mark in them.

He sent me a picture of a nice looking older man in his study who looked like an older version of his twitter self. My friend and I got suspicious when the good doctor said his wife and daughter had died in a car accident and I found this site.

He hasn't asked for money yet and I was talking to him on WhatsApp until I sent the screenshot of these posts. He claims he can't live chat due to regulations from being in Syria which made sense.

Looks like I will have to find a new boyfriend (ha,ha).

Who is David Mark
by: Anonymous

Dr. David Mark also contacted me and it was about his love for me right away. Too good to be true. Of course by his mistakes in his writing I knew he was not a doctor.

I played him along for a short while and then deleted him.

Please do not fall for his style. I am sorry for the gentleman whose pic he uses.

Dr. David Marks
by: Terri

LOL! I did the whole thing when he contacted me on Skype. I pretended I believed everything he said, how much he needed a love in his life, and blah, blah blah... when it came time for him to ask for money, I said sure! How much and where do I send it?

He told me almost $800 to Ghana.

I waited for about 30 mins and then told him I sent it. He told me to repeat the address back and I had purposely told him Gyana. LOL! Oh, he used all caps on me telling me to go back and change it.

So I said ok, be right back... The end.

I get at least 5 of these people hitting me up on Skype everyday. When I have time, I will mess with them just like I did with the good doctor. It's a good laugh and my friends get in on it too telling me what to say to really get them going.

Have a great time with them, but don't EVER send them money.

Dr. David Marks

Got him live right now. Clearly not a doctor - though I do feel for the guy whose identity he may have nicked... There's a slightly more credible looking Dr Marks who works in Texas.

Not sure if he's real, but the scam Dr Marks has a terrible linkedin, and a terrible grasp of the English language. Definitely fake.

Slightly entertaining.

Their on Zorpia
by: Anonymous

I'm glad you didn't fall for the scammer, and that they are still using that name! That was a you told him too! lol,,,

He told me the same thing on Skype, and I also had no profile on there so I asked where he read my profile. I cannot use facebook due to a stalker situation, and nothing impressive on LinkedIn... hmmmm.

Keep putting the word out there about these scammers! Great job! There are too many people falling for them and going broke doing it.

Keep your guard up!

DR David Mark

Hello, I was contacted by this so called Dr David Mark 1/1/2016. By skype--- Started out as he was looking for someone with a simpler Name--- then he said he was touched by my profile (there is nothing in my profile) had him at that point too.

He asked what I did for a living and I told him I was an outhouse attendant. That seemed to have gone over his head!!!

So beware they are still out there!!!!
