Words with Friends Scammer

Watch out for a Roy Ivan and David Williams. Both widowed oil rig engineers. Roy was not as slick as David, but they both thought we were destined to be together. Thank goodness I smelled TWO RATS and did some google searching. Deleted them both.

Hi. Had a Garth Mueller try and take me for a bunch of money. Lots of romance and some very serious sob stories. All of it a bunch of lies. All this person wanted was for me to use Viber and he wanted my money.

He is slick. Ladies, especially seniors watch our for this lowlife

Turn the tables on them
by: Anonymous

Agreed. Too many widowers with children, working in the oil industry. I tell them I am totally committed to my spouse, and am taking food donation charity because we have no money. That usually cuts it off. One was persistent, and wanted to send money. I said "Send it to my lawyer, and send me a Western Union for $1500 to set up a trust fund, because I have no money."

End of conversation. Felt so good to turn the scam back on him.

Another bunch
by: Anonymous

Watch out for Philip Absalom in full military regalia,(says he is a Sergeant Major) Michael Phillip, Jason Hillary and Harry2933 - all with the same old patter - widowed or divorced, one child, oil rig/engineer employment, and wanting to engage via the social media because they see a future for our relationship!

Such a waste of time and they can be very persistent.

When he realised I was not going to play ball and provide my email address, Facebook details etc, he cut me off. He too was an engineer, his English was good, but it was obvious that he had ulterior motives.

I could not locate him when I searched by username, name of friends etc; and the same thing has happened with other players of his kind. How do they get on to WWF?

I have had two supposed US generals complete with photos in full regalia - Mark Milly and John Willams - with the same tired spiel. Some of these guys manage to vanish without a trace in the finished games when I don't play ball and question their motives. This was also the case with Benscott700 who for a change had a cute puppy as the id photo but whose English was full of errors.

Wright Stillwood was a suited dude who disappeared suddenly and then there was someone Cartwright. I should really resign as soon as they pop up, but I can't resist finding out of they are widowed or divorced and working in the oil industry!

Is he your scammer? Started Words with Friends Aug 22, 2017. Comes on very honest. Widower with 11 yr old.! States never done this before. Likes your smile. How about chatting on WhatsAp? Smooth talker.

Owns his own business but never gives name and when pressured vanished.

Anyone had him as a friend?

Hello Beautiful by Jennifer
by: Anonymous

Hi Jennifer. I too was contacted on Words With Friends. His name was Chris Anderson. Saw a picture of him on this site and guess what...his name is also Nyland Jonas. Definitely same guy. Anyway, after I figured him out I got out of the game for a while.

He and I did message on F/B but I have blocked him. He also started out with Hello Pretty (not beautiful). About a week after I stopped playing I went back on and he was gone. However, I started getting two to four requests a day from these guys. Same thing. Hello pretty. Hello. How are you Doing. Where are you From.

I finally figured out that it was impossible for that many random scammers to find me and realized that Chris Anderson was using my user name. So, last Friday I changed my user name and have not been bothered since!

What a great feeling to get on that game and play with my regulars. This started on August 17th and now has ended. He did have my work email (which I did block him) as well as my work cell phone. Also rejected his calls. However, he can still text. I have been ignoring the texts and have not had one since Wednesday morning.

He is a vile creature. Also, as we did chat, he asked me about how I earned a living. Get this, I am married and let him know right away I was and not interested in romance. He then wanted to be friends. Then two months into our friendship he asked me to be a beneficiary as he was on an oil rig and needed next of kin.

I REFUSED. And I also told him my husband was in law enforcement and was a detective that investigated internet fraud as well as identity theft. That still did not stop him. Maybe now he will leave me alone and hopefully got the hint.

These guys are determined. Be careful ladies. Even being married to a cop does not stop them.

Starts off with just a hi. Says he is a realtor and also a professional binary option trade and bitcoin miner. Talked to me through the game for awhile. Then we exchanged email addresses. Then talked me into "hangouts". Smooth talker. Has all the right answers. Lives in Hilo, Hawaii. Great pictures too!

Beware.

A scammer a day
by: Artykulait

I seem to notch up these scammers at a rate of knots, all with their familiar stories of being widowed or divorced, usually with one child, and just about all engineers of one kind or another, often on oil rigs. Their English is very poor for the most part.

Here are some names to watch out for:

I suspect this is another name to add to your list. Says he is a renowned Engineer working with oil rigs. Says he has only been playing Words with Friends for a short time, but racks up high weekly scores. Didn't get to the point of asking for money, or anything like that, but I became suspicious when I saw his high accumulated weekly points, the occasional grammar errors, and the fact that he still wanted to continue being "friends" when He found out I was 80 plus years old. :-)

I quit the game, but am wondering if there are other steps I should take to protect myself.

Add Another
by: Meredith

Add Harry Jackmann to the list. This clown even went so far as to have an Instagram. Claimed his wife died in childbirth, has a six year old son (who apparently has decided I'm his mother), works as petroleum engineer in Odessa, Texas but just won a one-month contract on a rig in Nigeria.

That's what clued me in, prompting me to look up scammers on WWF. He won a contract and then was able to up and leave his home with a six year old son in tow and move to Nigeria for a month within 24 hours. Yeah, no. No way.

While dealing with this guy, I got approached by another guy who's a widower and works for "the American airline" as a pilot. Asked similar questions. Started out with "hello beautiful." Almost immediately asked me to chat on Hangouts. I can't with this.

I just want to play some Scrabble!

You can add Mark Lucas to your list of words with friends scammers. He says he works for Waylink Oil in an oil rig 400 nautical miles from Ireland. So I googled and it turns out he is not the only one.

Hello Beautiful
by: Jennifer

I am 62 years old. I had about 9 guys trying to scam me - all around my age in their pictures - started their chat with "Hello Beautiful".....I figured it was all the same guy.....he asked what I did for a living....then asked if I had enough money to cover my bills.

Also, in one post, he told me he lost his wife and children in a car accident. I asked him if he lost his dog too. LOL I knew it was a scam immediately.

Who says "Hello Beautiful" to a stranger on a Word Game, and to be honest, how many men are playing the game - I had an overload of them.

I got scammed by a Scott Buchanan. Smooth talker, nice pictures, promised not to hurt me, and so on. A construction contractor, working on a project in Thailand, but out of money and hits me up for 30K.

Beware.

Had a burner cell phone, no listing on Google search or facebook, should have been the first clue.

Evil people preying on the innocent.

He started with "Hello my dear" and then I Knew it was a scammer right off. He said he was a self employed ship builder from Denmark but lived in West Virginia. Asked me if I was married, told him yes I was, and that I was not his dear.

He asked me if I did online dating. I told him no, I did not, I was MARRIED and that would be cheating, and he said no it wouldn't. He had a fake FB page with no friends, no posts.

There were 2 pics of some short little guy, appeared it was taken in Cuba by the sign on the wall behind him. He asked how old I was. I answered that it wasn't polite to ask a lady that question.

In any case, I reported the fake FB page and FB took it down within 5 minutes.

Thomas Lingaard, another oil rig engineer
by: Linda K

I've got a Thomas Lingaard chatting with me on Words with friends. Claims he's been a widower for five years but has a daughter. He's an oil rig engineer in Denmark but his 15 year old daughter is in United State boarding school.

Tonight he asked me the same things he asked last night (and I told him last night). Tonight I changed my answers to see if he would notice, and he didn't. Wonder how many women he is trying to scam at the same time.

I've had quite a few men starting chats lately, and acting very familiar.

John Marcus Porter
by: Helen

He was on a dating site. He is now on Facebook. Asking me questions. I smell a cat fisher.

"I am a Telecom Network engineer and I work on my own as a freelance project contractor. Been 20 years.

I'm originally from Italy to be precise, I was raise in a town called Milan. I move to Columbus Ohio some years ago.

I'm a widower with two kids name Mary and Linda..
I believe that "distance means nothing when someone means a lot"I am able to write to you who lives far from my home because distance can be countered by a good communication and like I said, I am ready to relocate for the right woman.My father died in a car accident which affected my Mother and she got an heart attack, but since then i have always try to live my life to the Fullest and ready for what the Future holds for me, like you and i know, OUR PAST ONLY MAKE US STRONGER AND THE FUTURE MAKE US WISHER."


Anyone else have this guy. Says he lives in Ohio now.
