Dr. Harsha Kumar, Is he scam or for real? Met on shaadi.com?

by Rachelle
(India)

I have been in touch with this guy called Dr Harsha Kumar, an orthopedic surgeon working for UN, from Cedar City , Utah and currently posted in Kenya for supposedly 5 weeks. He is Very handsome, tall and has a charming personality. I fell for this guy after thinking he was a perfect match for me.


But one day, he called for the first time and his English was broken, had an african accent and that is when i got suspicious. His parents are no more, single, never married, 36 year old born on 0ctober 10, 1980. Parents hailing from Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh. He had written a whole story of himself of his likings and he said he likes me and that he is coming to India to see me.

Sent me photos of him also. All great to see but I do not know what is the truth. His communications have reduced after I started questioning about his job and how his typical day looks like and when he is coming to see me in India and if his leave got approved. He had mentioned that he will be seeking urgent leave after 5 weeks and would be leaving to India from Kenya to come see me prior to going back to the States. He says he has restrictions for camera, video chats, whatsapp, skype etc because he is on camp and has to follow the rules. He would only communicate on google hangout that too only texting except the one call he made that lasted for exactly 5 minutes.

Below, I am posting an excerpt from his introductory email to me..

My name is Dr.Harsha Kumar. I was born in India but raised in Spain and United States (USA). I work with UN as an Orthopedic Surgeon. I have been with the UN as an orthopedic surgeon going around with the Air force team on international assignment. I have been to different countries for peacekeeping mission. Our mission is to assist Nations in laying the foundations for sustainable peace and development.We are monitoring and coordinating efforts to protect citizens and their human rights, especially those of women and children.
I am the only child of my late parents Mr Kumar of blessed memory. I lost my parents some years ago then I relocated to Spain after the death of my parents
to stay with my Uncle . My uncle is very old now and he has no child of his own. I'm everything to him despite he is suffering from Esophagus cancer. I did some part of my schooling in Spain and USA. I created my matrimony profile recently because I want to get married and have a family of my own. I want to spend the rest of my life with someone who is friendly, honest, caring, trustworthy. I`m philanthropist, athletic build, mentally stable, physically fit, a bunch of laughs, warm, caring, honest, a good listener and a positive person. I am real easy person to talk to and a loving guy. I enjoy playing keyboard which i do often at my leisure time. I like going to the movies, or watching movies in my room or Cabin, I like swimming, listening to music and dance to any kind of music, I sing, traveling , going bowling and also a good cook. I am a family oriented person, love kids and there is more, but it would be better for you to find some things out for yourself. I saw your profile and i like it. It is very important for me to build a life of stability, security, and opportunity for the special person I hope to share my thoughts, feelings, experiences, dreams and fantasies. I am really interest in wanting to know about what makes you the special person you are today, I want to know more about your family, your background, your life experiences, your goals and dreams, your interests, and anything else you want to tell me. I even want to learn about the secrets you very rarely share with someone!. So come on and share it all with me, as I am not here to talk to you about general things such as partying, the weather, sports, e.t.c. I want to learn about you and what makes up your heart and soul happy as the friendship I want to build with you, I want it to be like no other you have ever shared or experienced. This friendship I want to build with you will be filled with substance, quality, spirituality, love, faithfulness and potential.


Is this man for real or am i being scammed? Has anyone had the same experience ??

Please do help me understand the situation..

Want to track down a scammer?
by: Rebecca

Hi all - just commenting as I'm working on a BBC One programme which is looking into romance scams online and on dating sites.

This guy sounds like a scammer and I'd love to do some investigating to find out who he really is!

If you've chatted to him at all, please get in touch - rebecca.turner@bbc.co.uk

Thank you!

He said he was a neuro surgeon working with United nations. He was an Indian national born and raised in Malaysia and educated in India. Lived in Dallas Texas with his father. His mother passed a few years ago.

After less then a few weeks he said he was sent to Syria. Then he said he was camped out in a four seasons hotel in Damascus. Then after a day he started telling he was attacked but he was safe hidden in the hotel. He changed his mind and wanted to come back. However the United nation’s plane was broken. The only way to get out is with a private plane. By now I was clear that he was scammer and I kept asking for a pic of his passport to help him but he said he lost it during the attack.

When I asked for a copy he said he never scanned it. I said ask the United nations to take him out but he says the only way to get out is via a private plane. I told him he still needs some documentation to fly back but he said no just a plane and the only company that can bring him is privateairline1@consultane.com with 1513 716 5707 OH number. First he asked me to connect him within the company then when I did not do it he said I forwarded my number to them.

I knew it was fake so I dialed the but constantly ringed. Then man called up started telling that he can take him out from Syria. I said I know this is fraud and never a penny will come out from me. He kept going like he did not hear so I said again and then he said they can check out if the man was real or not.

I responded that what two of them want is their business and I have no involvement as I knew this was fraud. The man texted me and said I will never be responsible for anything nor I want to know information however he called till I threatened to call FBI.

After that looking back I realized I never gave my number but he contacted me on shaadi.com. When he contacted me I was having very serious problems with a family member so I very occupied and an emotional mess. We never had phone conversation other than that African accent plane company man. I read conversation happened over WhatsApp over and over and came to the conclusion that the man had a lot more information than I ever told him. There was some information that only one of my friends knew and I had personal issue with her so we do not talk with each other. So in a million years you do not think that there can be a connection. But check the possibility. Doctor with United Nations number is 469 998 6585 again so watch out.

Dr Patel
by: Anonymous

Hi. Recently I responded to a profile and he introduced himself as Dr Patel working in turkey. Finally he asked for money saying that he got stuck in immigration and needed help from me. The photos which he shared with me are from a real doctor but the person whom I was talking is a scam.

I reported him
by: Rachelle

I reported this guy to shaadi.com about people like myself complaining about his genuineness. Initially I tried for an enquiry which they didn't entertain. Shaadi.com people themselves deleted his profile from the website a while after probably because his details or verification couldn't be processed ahead simply because he is a scammer.

It's been a month now, I did play some tricks on him like talking about Nigerian scanners etc. He hasn't entertained me since then on Hangouts app. No messages, no contact nothing from his side. Whenever I mentioned about scams, he kept pondering more, questioning me more if I was scammed or something and if I ended up paying.
I was skeptical about his curiosity towards unwanted things.

Like Cynthia mentioned here, his photo with glasses do appear in some other website by another name such as Juan Miguel something.

I still haven't been able to find 100% truth behind this man. But I'm glad I didn't have to survive a heartbreak.

I too got interest from Dr. Harsha Kumar In Bharat Matrimony
by: Anonymous

Hi, I recently got interest from this same guy and same email details. I have asked the same thing about communicating in WhatsApp or having video call so that it'll be nice to know better.

First time he just sent good morning msg and then after a week that means today he is chatting with me...somehow I was skeptical...I had been asking about his parents and relatives in India and same response I got his parents are dead and he has one uncle.

I want you to know that  My father was working with Humanitarian/ Red Cross and his job has  make us to stay in different countries . I grow up in different countries. we are very happy family full of love and understanding . I grow up following his words of wisdom .. he is my mentor . I learn most things from him until his death . My parents pass away some years. I have Uncle in India but my Uncle was responsible for my parents death because of family properties . My uncle wife was behind his evil deeds and unfortunately she pass on and there only son has abandon him for a very long time.  My uncle is sick now and he is suffering from bladder stones.  I have forgiven him because of the fear of God...  I take good care of his needs.  I send him money to pay his bills whenever he need help.  I want you to know that i have other relatives in India but my Uncle has never introduce any of our relatives to me because of his past stories. Whenever I go to India i will carefully look for my other relatives so that we can start a new life together. my parents died of food poison some years ago of which we all believe that my Uncle was responsible for their death but I have Uncle in Spain and he is very old and sick.

So I searched in Google by his name Doctor Harsha Kumar and here I am seeing looking at your messages...this is shocking how people try to cheat and play with others feeling... thanks for posting... appreciate it very much!!

Doctor is a Nigerian scammer
by: Anonymous

Each scammer uses this type of introduction and always working on a "site" in another country. Get far away and delete his testimony. I promise you he is Nigerian and about 17 to 20 years old.

No professional person tries to get love of his life in this manner!

Harsha Kumar
by: Cynthia

Why with every Scammer are all their parents dead. Please he is to young for that. I also agree with the other writer men do not tell you their life story. When he asks for money which he will, do not send any because you could get caught up in a money laundry with the banks.

You will never get your funds back. Date someone from the area you live and stay away from this type of action. I have read where some women were destoyed and lost all their money and lost their home and are now homeless because of these scams.

Wait and see but don't commit

If he asks for money say no. If he actually makes it to see you, then evaluate- ACTUAL ACTIONS - not just words...

Scammer
by: Anonymous

Total scammer. When you meet men, do they normally
tell their whole life tale? Men are not like that. Unless you ask them. The pictures look like headshots from an actor data base.
