Beware of Jeffery Harris

by Suzanne
(Connecticut)

This scammer claimed to be a widower, retired army sergeant and drilling engineer for chevron. He had photos and videos to back up his story, and sent me selfies often to narrate his day. He sent me this fake passport card to try to prove his identity to me. When I refused to send him money to help him out of an emergency on the oil rig he was renovating, the very loving relationship abruptly ended. Don't be fooled by this person.

Jeffrey Harris
by: Anonymous

I am in Scottsdale and the same thing happened to me. He had the same story as other women have stated and we have been texting and emailing for 6 weeks. I am so glad that I found this site. Oh my gosh I was getting in really deep but my adult kids were worried that he was a scammer so I started digging.

Could not find his phone numbers, and all other searches showed he does not exist. Then I found this site. What an awful person to do this to someone. I feel really badly for the person he stole the photos and videos from.

Please be careful women out there. As my daughter stated, if it is too good to be true it usually is.

Possible same
by: Anonymous

I was "befriended" by someone named Jeffery Harris via Words With Friends who said he was originally from Australia, had his own business in Chicago area. I think he said something related to pipelines and movement of oil. Sorry my memory fails to recall exact details. So for many weeks it was casual banter and fun games. It seemed a tiny off as he was so very friendly but I was not suspicious and very friendly myself.

UNTIL out of the blue one day he asked for a favor: about transferring money via some Amazon method. When I said that sounded way too complicated and not something I would consider, he stopped communicating but not playing. A few days or weeks after, I asked him about his status and he said "you made a fool out of me" and within seconds deleted himself from the game.

It just seemed like a strange thing to say and his immediate exit seemed unusually abrupt and immature so all in all, I am wondering if this is all similar?

You had to be there, but there was definitely something unusual about it all.

Now he is Robert Davis Harris on Linked In
by: Anonymous

Now he is using a stolen photo to be Robert Davis Harris on Linked-In as a Chevron engineer. He was also on Facebook as Osborn Jeffery Harris. He is not who he says he is. Block him immediately if he contacts you! He is nothing but a scam artist from Nigeria trying to trick you into sending him money.

He is using stolen photos and someone else's identity, that of a real U.S. veteran. Don't be fooled! Report him to the site so he can be removed. He is a scam artist.

Robert Harris on Meetup.com
by: Anonymous

I joined a few Chicago area Meetup groups and Harris started messaging me with the "widower from Oho" story, that he was a Chevron employee moving to Chicago and he joined groups to get a lay of the land. First couple of messages sounded legit, but he listed his hometown as a Chicago suburb, claiming to be from Ohio, and the last message was full of broken English, indicating a non-native speaker.

I Googled "Robert Harris Ohio Chevron" and found this site. I sent the link to Meetup organizers to warn them of fraud.

I am a journalist and very skeptical of everything, especially a stranger who messages "hello dear." Chicago Meetup ladies, beware!

Robert Harris of CT
by: Suzanne

He is now using the name Robert Harris on the website NY and CT Singles Having Fun. He is not from Hartford or New Haven, CT. He is a scammer from Nigeria. BLOCK him and report to FBI and FTC, as I did. He is not who he says he is.

Don't be fooled by a scammer
by: Suzanne from CT

He also goes by the name Osborn Jeffery Harris or just "Harris". His adult children are called Charles and Susan. He will often say that you are the reason for that smile on his face. Over and over. He is not a widower from Ohio, but a scammer from Nigeria. Don't be fooled and don't send him money!

Block him and report him to FBI and FTC as I did.

One scam avoided
by: Suzanne from CT

Yes, that was him. He even had an Ohio phone number from Bandwidth which is almost impossible to track. He said he was moving to CT. The handsome veteran pictured did not deserve to have his photos stolen, as well as those of his lovely kids.

I got him kicked off meetup, and that’s why he had to change his name. So glad you saw my posting and avoided a scam artist. It is my goal to make his job as hard as possible. He messed with the wrong person.

He's still at it
by: Sue (Seattle)

I got the same song and dance. He started writing to me the first week in September. Said he was in Ohio and was moving soon to Seattle to work for Chevron. He started as Gerald on Meet-Up. And texting as Harris. Turned into Jeffery when he sent an e-mail.

The more he told me the more he made some obvious mistakes - couldn't remember what he had said before.

Then I found this site. I asked him about it and all communication stopped.

Addendum
by: Suzanne from CT

Just wanted to add that the handsome man in the photo is likely an innocent person who had his identity stolen by the scammer. He is the person I fell in love with. I hope that by posting this fake passport that people are warned so this does not happen to anyone else. I reported this crime to the authorities in the hopes the scammers will finally be caught. Luckily they did not get my money.
