FB Profile and CMB dating profile pic, has since been removed from FB the image he sends of himself presenting to BP

His backstory: Born in Switzerland. Dad died when he was young, so he moved in with his uncle in Italy. Has a sister and brother who live currently in Switzerland. He claims to be from Lugano, and that he has a 12 year old daughter from his "early manhood".


He says that he is looking for a relationship after years of being single because his last relationship ended with him heartbroken. He had been engaged to a woman in Lugano, and when he had been traveling a lot to "get deals" and make more money, he had discovered she was cheating on him.

The photos he shows are a guy who could be Italian. Whoever this guy is, "Charles" has a LOT of photos of him - him with his brother, on vacation, at the beach, in the city.

He claims to be an independent contractor for BP. The story he tells is that he has to go to London for a "presentation"-- coincidentally right around the time you first say you want to meet him in person. While in London, he texts to say that he Won the contract and has to fly to China immediately to oversee production. Both of the women whose story I know were given this exact same timeline (but at two different times), and he even sends a photo of "himself" giving his presentation at BP. Same photo to both women on different dates.

A million red flags, but I played along to see where it was going. He sent photos from London. I did a reverse image search and found them on various news sites. He sent a photo from China of him supposedly in front of a church there. Funny though... I recognized the church. I've been there - It's the cathedral in Milan Italy. When he sent photos of him and his "brother"... he said they were in Italy. I tracked those down online too--- Greece.

The money lead-up started when he was in "China". The factory workers demanded a higher salary, and he couldn't get the shipment fees paid at the wharf. I never offered money, and his texts/emails started being more and more infrequent. He gave the same story to another woman, at another time.

He said he had told his sister that he "finally found love" and is madly in love after about a week of texting. In one case, a woman hadn't even sent him any photos of herself, and he was writing to her how beautiful she was and how he was "so horny" thinking about her while he was traveling.

But back to my experience with him -- I finally told him I knew that he was a scammer, that I had traced his IP address from his emails and that they originated in California, and filtered through Nigeria.

His replies were rude. He called me a gold-digger, etc, etc. LOL. And interestingly enough, the trace on those didn't involve Nigeria- they were traced to originate in California and only had USA IPs. He's obviously using a VPN.

The photo and name he used was also a profile on FB. I contacted all the women on his friends list and let them know he was a scammer.

A couple replied in thanks, saying they had "met" him on dating sites, but another one said she was his girlfriend and that she was ready to leave her husband for him. I showed her all the proof I had, and a few days later, she said that she believed he really was in China. I just blocked her. She was either a complete idiot or another scammer in on it with him.

He then deleted the profile image from the FB page and hid his friends list. It had also contained various groups that he had joined -- single mother groups, divorced mom groups, Philippino-American groups, Italian-American groups, San Francisco area job search groups. His FB profile page is

https://www.facebook.com/charles.moffatt.180

Two emails that he uses are charles_c2@aol.com and charles-c2@aol.com.

The phone number he uses is (303) 632-9523, which is an Aurora Colorado USA number. An identity search finds a Charles Moffett in Aurora - not sure if it's the real person or just a stolen identity that this scammer has found and is actively using - but it makes his story seem more realistic that the puzzle pieces fit together quite well.

So beware! If anyone has been scammed by this guy using other names, please comment and warn others!

Fake date: Alberto Tamagni
by: Anonymous

I also just met him on the dating site "Coffee Meets Bagel" and he goes by the name Alberto Tamagni and he quickly wanted to get off their site and switch to texting on (928) 482-5823.

The compliments were over the top and just a total sign he’s not for real. I’m only at the 'he had to go to London' piece and got the contract. It was obvious he’s a scammer as really I needed to be the first person he told???? And he called me from London. Ah OK I’ve known you for like 5 days. But I will say the true sign was really you gave me your flight info, heck I don’t even get that from my friends when they travel unless I’m picking them up.

Fraudulent Date: Alberto Tamagni
by: Anonymous

I just met him on the dating site "Coffee Meets Bagel" and he goes by the name Alberto Tamagni and he quickly wanted to get off their site and switch to texting on (928) 482-5823. So I googled him and found all this info. Same pictures of Italian looking guy who says he attended University of Zurich; indicates he is CEO/Owner of Engineering Construction Co.; age 46.

Gives far too many compliments and doesn’t even know you. Bizarre!!

Heartbroken
by: Anonymous

He broke my heart. I was desperate to find love after failed relationships. Our dating profile were very identical. I truly believed that he was my soulmate. The last thing he told me was that he called me his wife and said he loved me, after 3 months.

I knew it was too good to be true, but I wanted to believe him. He gave me the same story, about being stuck in China. I didn’t hear from him for a week. I decided to go on his profile and saw that his location was in Pennsylvania! I was heartbroken and devastated. I was falling hard for him. I’m still recovering from it, unfortunately. He broke my heart.

Same heartbreak
by: Chandy

I will admit, I was hopelessly in love with this guy. I even told my friends about him. But my gut instinct told me something wasn’t right. He told me he was in China as well and couldn’t leave. I saw on his profile that his location was in Pennsylvania!. I was devastated!

This man looks gorgeous in the pictures. We had so much in common, or so I thought. It was too good to be true. I was trying to settle down and find true love. I also thought that he was possibly a player as well. l never gave him any money. Lesson learned, unfortunately. I’m still heartbroken over this. Those were the pictures from the presentation he gave me. Except the beach one.

Met him on coffee meets bagel. Same storyline but with a different phone number (616)426-2080 He goes by the name Alberto Tamagni. He still has a FB profile by that name. Didn’t fall for his scam so he blocked me after I said I’m not falling for some guy I barely met. 😂😂😂

Not sure if my other post went through so doing it again.

Meet him on Coffee meets Bagel about 5 months ago and received the same story and pics that Missy posted. He also sent me a pic of him in front of the hotel in China he claims to be staying at.

I have spoken to him via phone and he has a very heavy accent, not sure if Italian or what. He did email me a copy of the BP contract he stated he won. I'm currently in the process of contacting BP Officials. He spoke of his family and that just recently his sister's daughter died of cancer while he was in "China".

There is more to my story and I'd love to speak with Missy (Atl) or any of the other ladies that would be willing to talk with me.

You can initially contact me via email at starrsabove@ymail.com

Total scam
by: Anonymous

Yup. I met this guy on meetme.com dating site. All the stories are the same. I had the same cell number for him also, the 303-632-9523 but he went by the name, ALBERTO FRIEDMANN.

Why are these sick Nigerians trying to scam?? Are they that ugly? Perhaps they should be banned from all sites. Makes me sick to my stomach. I hope they get caught and jailed!!

This guy found me on Facebook and started chatting. He immediately moved it to an app called Upptalk and eventually told me he was in China and out of funds.

When I didn't take the bait, he stopped texting me.
