Stolen Image of Innocent Man Used by Nigerian Scammers
Stolen Image of an Innocent Man Used by Nigerian Scammers
Says He is
Says He is
Donald Roberto is on Words With Friends as Donald R and he starts a chat and asks you to go to Hangouts. The first thing he does on Hangouts is send images of an oil rig. He is thin on the ground with what details he can offer as to who he is. He says he is from Paris, France. 57 years old with a son and daughter of no age is separated.
He says "Am engineering Forbes oil and gas company am Donald and you." and that he is currently in Turkey. He then sends you images of a man and a 6 second video of him. It is slow and he does have the scripted questions and he is throwing the photos at you from the beach in Turkey. He's pretty confident but not saying much. He gets angry as I do not do certain things he asks like give my phone number and some financial information.
This is the second time I've said this. Someone I've met before is having another go at me. That is enough for me and I'm not going to tolerate it. Another video appears and more photos of a man who is innocent but used in scams.
Me: Do you have Google?
Him: Yes of course
Him: Hello are you there?
Me: Okay your photo you sent me. Get it and then search Google for image and explain why you are not the man in the pictures you sent that I am talking with
Me: I'm waiting (they all say that, he should understand)
Him: How what man are you talking about dear
Him: Make me understand
Me: Do as I asked and you will understand
Him: How can I search my picture on Google
Him: Make me understand
Me: I know you will deny but you have different names and YOU are on a scam site
(Insert a screenshot)
Him: Really okay I do understand now a lot of people are using my pictures for scamming
Me: I doubt that very much
Him: I also saw them on word with friends I do hate my self
He sends 3 more photos
Him: A lot use my pictures on Instagram No. That is where you're downloading them from
Me: Well in the last one you have 3 different names
Him: So confused
Well you can see where this is going as we continue and he just keeps sending more photos thinking that will convince me
Me: I know how it works. Next you'll tell me you've been hacked
Him: Not really dear
Me: Well that man has a lot of names and is in Australia, USA, UK, Poland and Canada
He replies with lengthy texts of love and honesty. Oops he forgot the love! He's turning to that now. Text after text but I'm not stopping on who is in the pictures.
Me: There you go straight to denial it is what you do best along with lies, cheating deception and more
We continue and then more photos
Me: Well you just dig a deeper hole. 17 names for the last photo. Stop lying to me
Him: Okay so what do you want me to tell you now
Him: The trust
Me: Tell me who you really are
Him: Okay so if I tell you who I really are we you help out
Me: Only if you are honest with me.
Him: Okay am not this man and am very poor
A picture of a young African appears and now I believe that but not another word he says.
Me: What is your name?
Him: Help me out of poverty please Then don't buy an iPhone!
Me: Lagos? You don't seem old
Him: No Delta State
Me: Okay that is a big place which city
Him: Close to Lagos
Me: Okay and how old are you?
Him: Am 22years
Him: Please help me
That is pretty much it. No scam just him capitulating about who he is after my pressure. I don't believe a word they say when they do this as after they do it is just the start of a new cycle of them trying to get money from you. So "John" 22 from close to Lagos if this really is you people now know what you do for a living.
