Leonard Nelson - this guy is smooth

by Anonymous

Started chatting with Leonard Nelson, leonardnelson410@gmail.com on words with friends. Was just general discussion, I stated I do not provide personal information. He Lost wife/daughter and is raising grandson Daniel, with the help of a nanny. Marine Engineer lives in Houston Texas. He asked me to go to whatsapp or google hangouts. Told him I would only chat on Skype. He started to profess his love for me and wants to marry me early on. Very smooth talker and says some very sweet things which seem believable at times. Meanwhile if I would state something generic going on in my life he would ignore the statement.

He stated he was in Holland and he returned back to Houston for a few weeks. He got a contract in Germany. While in Germany he forgot to pay for his 8 year old grandsons excursion to Australia (really how many 8 year olds go on trip to Australia without parents). I need to send him $1200 in google play cards. I refused and called him a scammer, he ensured me he was not and we continue chatting. He said I should send him money as we are to be married. Told me he was 65.

He starts chatting with my friend on WWF, grandson now 9 and wife/daughter died 10 years ago (okay that makes no sense). He tells friend he is in Holland while he tells me he is in Germany. Tells my friend he is only 60. Told both friend and I he is en route to India for another contract. He just started chatting with friend thru generic email address last week.

After a couple of emails, he asks friend her salary and how often she got paid. Next email he asked her for $1500 for grandson to go now to Canada. Friend refused, he told her okay I don’t need full amount $700 will do.

Told me a few days before that he was stuck in Togo Republic en route to India and forgot his credit card back in Germany and needs $650 thru Western Union as they will not allow him to board the plane without a credit card. Meanwhile he told my friend he is in India. Friend looking at time stamp of emails says he is in time zone 4 hours ahead of USA EST. India time zone is 9.5 hours ahead of USA EST.

Reverse image search the images, are of Miguel Tempone of Argentina. He told my friend his phone number is 1-740-807-3264 and wants to just send texts, she refused to give her find number.
He is no longer talking to my friend and I, probably since we refused to send money.

Miquel Tempone Scammer
by: Anonymous

I too was scammed from Miquel. I met him on POF in 2019. He said he loved me within days of meeting on line. His name was Harry Smith from Arizona. After a few months when he was going to fly me to meet him.

He all of a sudden said he had to go Europe. After a few days he contacted me to say blah blah blah and asked me to send him money.

That's when I got suspicious. Long story short --- Why hasn't he been arrested?

Glad I Googled his name
by: Anonymous

I just started talking to this guy by the name Miguel. Something tells me there's something not right so I Google his name and it brought me to reality that this guy is a scam.

This guy is very smooth and knows his game. If in doubt, google their name. It's hard to trust nowadays.

Be safe everyone.

Scammer
by: Anonymous

He was on the zooke dating website and contacted me wanting my phone which I refused and he told me that his mom and daughter live in Italy and that his wife died 5 years ago and that he would give me anything I wanted.

The place where he said he worked I rang and they said they never heard of him. I found him on Instagram and he is either gay or bisexual. I told him he was a P.O.S. and that I hope women figure him out. He isn't even good looking

I don’t know if it is the same man though
by: Anonymous

I think there are many scammers who may use his pictures. Miguel Tempone has a public Instagram account and posts many pictures. I met a lady who says that Miguel runs this scamming ring himself, but I am not too sure if this true or not.

I am so sorry that they are trying to scam your deceased child’s profile as I think these scammers stop at nothing as long as they get rewarded they don’t care.

He is using different names
by: Anonymous

He is going under Dave scoot and Justin Williams. He went into my deceased child’s profile and wanted to be my child’s sugar daddy. I went along with it and he said he worked as an engineer for turner. Well the funny thing is my husband works for turner and is a supervisor and we strung this man along to see how far he would go.

This man is unreal. I am going to try to find out how to report him to authorities this week. I did an image reverse on him and his story did not match up right away. I think he is banking on young girls and when he came to my child’s page and we both work in this industry and for the company he claimed to work for he was thrown off.

What a piece of scum

Miguel Tempone
by: Anonymous

I just got scammed by this guy yesterday on Twitter. I feel so dumb not knowing he is a scam. He sent me a check but he wanted me to send him some of the money back and for me to keep some of the money. When I tried sending it back it wouldn’t go through and I realized my account went on hold and I phoned my bank and they had told me it was counterfeit money and that it was fraud and that this guy was a whole scam so I blocked the guy.

DONT MESSAGE OR TALK TO HIM HE IS JUST TRYING TO SCAM YOU ITS ALL FAKE!!!

Report this guy!

I got scammed by this guy on twitter. He sent me checks and then after they went through had me apple pay his "grandma" and after I sent money the checks bounced back. It is a felony to send a bad check, I am hoping to find other people who got scammed to nail this guy or organization down

Miguel Tempone A.K.A. ?
by: Anonymous

The names change, the stories change but it is always Miguel Tempone of Mar Del Plata, Argentina. This is his business and he may have an international gang working for him. I have been in contact with 7 women around the world who have been scammed by him in various degrees. We would like to stop him either by a class action suit or similar. His crimes are committed mostly from Argentina but some while in other countries.

On Facebook CHARLIE BOTHMANN
by: Anonymous

He scammed me for 3 weeks. I caught him a day too late. He was a friend of a FB friend of mine. He said he was born in California but was raised in Greece. He worked in Texas for 17 years and was married to his college girlfriend who was addicted to drugs that lead to his divorce and later his ex wife committed suicide. He started flirting like within 4 days and fell in love in 2 weeks.

He is very good at smooth talking and the false feelings of true love

Miguel Tempone
by: Anonymous

Evidently person in this picture is Miguel Tempone from Argentina. He scams many woman utilizing many different profiles and names. Has several people working for him, from what I have been told.

Please beware, and do not send any total stranger money in any way shape of form, whether gift cards, western union, bitcoin.

They promise to pay it back l, but you will never see the money.

Definitely a scammer
by: Anonymous

They favour engineering as a profession because they do not expect women to know about that.

Glad neither of you sent money to him.
