Wasn't born last night!

(Flagstaff, AZ, USA)

I started communicating with a man called Nicholas Adreas Coleman on Words With Friends last December (2017). I thought that someone on WWF would be smart and someone fun to chat with while playing scrabble. His infatuation grew quickly and I began to get the, "I love you's", you are my soul mate etc.


He told me he was from Baton Rouge, LA and worked on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. I challenged him every step of the way to prove to me that he was who he said he was. Fortunately or unfortunately I was a victim of a scam several years ago and that person did end up getting a $50 I Tunes card from me.

This time I was much wiser and strung him along until today when he finally asked me for the $50 ITunes card. I immediately told him, "absolutely NOT". I am happy to say that the only thing that I lost in this situation was a very small amount of time. I really didn't want to take his calls so I didn't and made excuses why I couldn't talk via text messages. It was kind of fun stringing him along!!! I figured if he was spending time grooming me that he wouldn't be trying to target someone else.

So a word to the wise, all the warning signs that are posted above I saw in this scammer. It is true, "if something is to good to be true, it probably is"!

I too had a WWF scammer named Chris Anderson. Fell in love With me immediately. Then he won a HUGE contract with Exxon Mobile. $20,000,000 To be exact. Left for the rig early October. Wanted me to be his beneficiary.

I said NO. Then it was Itunes gift cards. I said NO. Now he is on his 4th month on the rig and his equipment broke down. He needs $10,500. I said NO.

Stuck out in the Gulf of Mexico.

Gulf of mexico

I also had a wwf scammer a few days ago, Peter Jensen, lost his wife in a car accident, 13 year old daughter, from San Diego but working on oil rigs in Gulf of Mexico. I strung him along too, told him I was on my third divorce, took all ex husbands for all they had and currently on a world cruise. He kept asking if I was joking, felt like saying I was playing him along with a string of lies as he was with me, Because I was on a cruise I couldn't give him my phone number or email, and once I had him thinking I was very wealthy I blocked him.

It was actually fun and if I get another scammer I shall think of more lies to feed them!

You hit the Nail on the head. If its too good to be true, it is!! Its amazing how scammers are hitting all forms of social media and not isolated to just online dating apps like tinder and badoo.

I have played with the A list and bottom feeders of scam land. Some come clean then play the reverse scam. The Nigerian cat fishers are very convincing, cleaver and know how to suck you into their game. They are the kings of a good lie and manipulate every chance you let them.

I report them every chance I get but its just a small deterrent because they show back up with similar profiles and photos

They know I'm fishing them like they fish for us and I make them mad and angry and I've received infected email and death threats.

It gets old and boring but I enjoy posting their photos on the various scam watch sites.
