Facebook Dating Scam/ Oil Rig Engineer
David Morgan- Good looking says he's a 57 yo. widower, from Germany- with a son Clinton in boarding school. Oil rig Engineer as profession...will not answer any direct questions, very shady, answers every thing with "my dear." He didn't get any money- didn't ask, but it was probably coming - I sent him a picture of my face - that was bad enough.
Friended through Facebook. I will not accept requests anymore from people I do not really know...as friends. He was attractive (probably not even really him in picture) that's honestly why I said yes to the FB request.
He laid it on thick - it didn't seem right - listen to your gut. It irritated me that he sent all of these stupid GIFTS of roses, etc. Women are not stupid. I asked for a selfie, or snap chat - of his face.
He said "cellphones can be explosive here in the camp.". I asked him if it was related to the static, and he couldn't/wouldn't explain. If he's an engineer....um, No. That shouldn't be a problem. I already knew the answer- I wanted to know if he knew.
He sent me a picture of a rig. He was not in the picture. I said "What's this?" He said quote: "Using various equipment on drill floor to assist in the production of drilling of oil." That was priceless! I said.. Drill floor meaning the ocean? How deep? Then, he said, "It's right in the middle of the ocean, my dear." I asked him how deep, at what depth do they drill?
After he asked me if I liked jewelry, what I ate for lunch and if I lived alone - (I didn't answer the last) and he refused to tell me what ocean he was in...I deleted him. So weird.
Signs: 1) Too many personal questions, very quickly
2) No reciprocal information - they do not answer your questions
3) Attempts at superficial, glib romantic attempts before they know anything about you as a person (personally, I thought this was a turn-off)
4) Not forthcoming with details, no job knowledge
5) Broken english
Probably looking for cash; or a Green card. Stay away. A cat or dog will love you unconditionally, and will NOT steal from you.
